State WHERE GOOD CLOTHING IS NOT EXPENSIVE Recommends Annual Meeting for Iowa State Legislature By DWIGHT McCORMACK i Des Moines, (&) — if one Iowa legislator has his way about it there will be annual rather than biennial sessions of the legislature. Rep. A. E. Rankin (R.-Hampton) said Friday in replying to an Associated Press legislative preview survey he would introduce a bill for that purpose in the 1949 legislature. "I think the legislature should meet half as long but meet every year," Rankin said. "It wouldn't cost any more. "To me it is poor business to run a business as lare as this state, and meet only every 2 years. This state has gotten too large and has too much business for its 'board of directors' to go home and tell the hired man to run it for 2 years. Too Expensive "It is expensive (the legislative process) in. that we have to have extra sessions, and then too the new men have lots to get the first term. ''They will be of more help to their people if they get at least one time In the session when they can act as a part of the experienced legislators." Rankin, 60, a farm manager and insurance man, will begin his 2nd term when the legislature meets Jan. 10. His proposal has been offered in some previous sessions without success, but usually by a democrat. Republicans again will hold a substantial majority in the 1949 session. The biennial sessions usually last about 3 months. They cost several hundred thousand dollars a session. There have been numerous extra sessions in recent years, for one reason and another. Wants Pay Hike Another legislator commented in the survey that he thought the pay of the legislators should be HAWLTON-WALTHAM- EV6W*CAi.VEHT MASON CITYS E H 0 R Q O G i S GOOD NEWS FOR X-MAS SHOPPERS!

He is Rep.-Elect A C Hanson (R.-Inwood), a former legislator who is returning to lawmaking. Hanson didn't say he would propose an increase. But he did say: "After scouting for rooms, I am impressed with the need of increasing the pay of legislators to provide at least living costs while in the city. "Conditions are quite different than in the 45th (1933) general assembly. We are now in an inflationary price level as compared with the depression then." Proposal Sidetracked A measure before the 1947 legislature proposing a pay increase for the lawmakers was sidetracked although that session gave a full round of salary boosts to state officials. A member of the next session who declined to identify himself by name said he would like to see passage of a bill "to prohibit any state employe, receiving a larger salary than the governor." The governor gets $12,000 a year. But the state salary book for the last fiscal year showed the presidents of the University of Iowa and Iowa State college, and the football coach at the University topped the governor in salary. Another legislator's view 13 that' "there are too many laws already. I don't intend to introduce any bills in the next legislature."
