Governor Wilson, in accordance with a suggestion of President Roosevelt to all governors, proclaimed a 40 m. p. h. speed limit for Iowa passenger cars •Tuesday. • The action was official, yet not authoritative. It was official be- j cause the governor issued it. It' was not author tative because the ' governor is not empowered to fix speed limits—only the legislature can do that. Nevertheless the governor's office gives him high moral authority, particularly in times of great national emergency, as now, and u is expected that a large majority of lowans will respect the proclamation. Law Fixes Flexible Rule. • Iowa used to have a speed law for passenger cars—the old 35 m. p. h: law, which became such a joke, and was so generally ignored, after .new cars developed high speed that the legislature repealed it. . The only fixed Iowa speed law still in force relates to trucks— 40 m. p. h.—and that is pretty generally ignored when no highway patrolman is around.

The highway patrolmen do, however, take note of speeders and stop them to give warning of danger. Patrolman Clark, of Algona, reports that this is usually effective with mature drivers. Arrests of passenger car drivers for speeding are few outside cities. Wording of Proclamation. Last December, before the president acted, Governor Wilson took action by himself, recommending publicly that lowans driving passenger cars observe a 50 : mile limit. The governor thinks this recommendation was widely, adopted. The present proclamation says: I do hereby call upon all drivers of motor vehicles within the state of Iowa to observe a careful and prudent speed not to exceed 40 miles an hour for the duration of the war. Of course the president's objective, also the governor's, in the present world emergency, is not primarily reduction in speed to prevent action and save lives but to conserve rubber and the life of both cars and tires.

It is expected these will not arrive till next week. However, in the meantime newspaper lists of numbers called have been used. First Number Here 441. In the first 500 numbers drawn, there were only 105 numbers which applied to Kossuth. Numbers over 1610 are automatically- skipped so the first number to apply here was 441. Thus the holder of that number, Mr. Hunt, will be first in order for classification. Tlje second number drawn under 1610 was 1103, or Mr. Durnin's number, hence he will be second to be called for classification. Here Are First 105.
