Deplores Poverty 'Slap-Dash' Advise Further Study, School Bus Operation Over 200 persons attended the Republican Convention of the county Friday evening. A number of resolutions were passed and delegates to the state convention June 17 and 18 in Des Moines were chosen. Presiding was C. R. Schoby, county chairman. Among the more important resolutions adopted was one concerning the poverty program. "Resolved that we fully support an authentic war on poverty, including a co-ordinated, properly controlled, step-by-step series of actions and programs that would in time equip the poor to rise above their despair. We in contrast deplore the proliferation of agencies, the multiplicity of anti-poverty programs thrown together, slap-dash, by the Johnson administration.". Methods of school bus transportation v/ere discussed, and further study by the state legislature was recommended, to find a more effective method satisfactory to all. The convention voiced approval that the labor law and right-to- work 14-B be retained. It agreed that Daylight Saving time should be from Memorial Day to Labor Day. On the subject of reapportionment, the convention supported primary sub-districting for representation in the state legislature. A motion was made from the floor, and discussion followed. Resolved was that Congress be directed to call a constitutional convention for the purpose of amending the U. S. Constitution to provide that one house of a bicameral state legislature may be based on factors other than population. Double collection of taxes was resented. The convention found property taxes burdensome and recommended positive action on revenue from other sources of income. Delegates to the state convention include . Mrs. R.
