Hughes has a divi'decl legislature. In <' the senate the democrats have a majority ' of only 3 — 29 rf to >t 32. In ,m.ainy instancss 1 it J takes a two-thirds^rtiajbrity approval -yote 'to confirm the appointment to a board or commission. Thus all such appointments must have 41 votes to confirm, which means nine republicans will have to go along with all Che democrats. ' IN MANY CASES senators and mem- - bers of tlhe house of representatives eye appointive positions. Many of these jobs are for aix r year terms. They can maintain government employment at a good salary and 'have the trouble of running for office. TERMS EXPIRING now ,11- generally e Wads by Governor Efba, who hanldd republicans. In theSe boards and cuMttmis- sifths'.thc exp'ifaiti ! '6h 'd'ates ate staggered, hence iri the two terms Hughes has boon governor ha has replaced many reipaWicams With democrats. „ • Now in order to keep the bipartisan balance' required by law he will have, to name republicans, „ If I/he governor appoints members of IHc legislature he can be reei:onably sure of cohfirmation, Rarely, if ev&r> has the sea- atc'Tejected a representative, and never in memory has the senate ever rejected a senator for .appointment. The club atmosphere of the legislature is such that senators go along with the aip: ponntment without question — in fact have confirmed without investigation of senate appointees. Thus Hughes can have two advantages — one in naming republicans keeping them in tine with his proposals, and second in having them confirmed if he names legislators. • ti • ' Tdo old to spank Men and women students af Grinnell ' .college who staged a test of the ban against room visits are a bit on the wrong sia& *, Whether they know it or not they are '" hot mature enough to take the risks involved 1 in such a practice. ,' Whether the women students have the «igh% to'svisit men in their rooms, or vice •I versa, is a matter not for the students to -decide but for the administration of the school.: , 1 vVi ^ , '-: t" ; )THE RULES against such visits are ; wtiie, 11 ; They are adopted because the older heads in the administration are well aware of the pressures on the 'youngsters today arid have had a long and in many eases an unhappy experience -on which, to base the • 'judgments , ,' , , '"' Also the adminiistration must answer, not to the students, but to their parents for the kind of school they are running and the , _.behavior pattern on the campus. Itiiyould be, enlightening to know what the parents of .these youngsters stressing t for room visits would have to say about the > practice. \ Chances are few would approve. / ' IN A V/AY the college administration is a bit; responsible as standing in lieu of parents to those; enrolled in the school. 4 ' It if sccepted that those who pass over the , lino of accepted moral behavior must leave title school, The school must maintain this f .or lose its students, for parents just won't send their children into such an atmosphere. ' Parents object not because they have forgotten their youth — but because they remember, and know the problems ,and pitfailk: and strains of the younger generation. .Whether the students admit it or not — tlheir parents were young once. Few are those who have not seen some unhappy sequal to disobedience of moral requirements. And they know the temptations of just living without having opportunities for going past the point of no return without being conscious of challenge and consequence. THERE IS TOO MUCH pressure these dftys to grow up too soon. There'are too nuny marriages of youngsters in their teens Wlw have no idea of what they are getting into. '• w - -•'-' -*--"' •s---- —'VAMJ-' The Grinnell students are wrong and down in their hearts they kniow it. They are just going through the protest of youith a- gainst'authority. And psychologists have often commented that when youth acts this way it is because 'they subconsciously want strict guidelines and are much relieved wheni,they are refused something they know instiotivedy is wrong. They really don't want to win. What they are unconsciously doing is protesting ' growing up, seeking to turn back to'the tantrum days When they didn't have the responsibility of making decisions, ;"' They're -too old to spank, tind too young for reason. They must learn to.observe the rules of life as they gradually get their freedom from parental and college authority. For with freedom must come responsibility to others as well as themselves, a a lesson they have yet to learn. It is not,unusual, in fact almost uni- " yersal, that state boards and commissions expand their power sometimes to outrage. ous limits. ' The state cosmetology board is under fire for failing 26 per cent of applicants fot r. hair-dressing licenses. All were graduates ,\ qf schools of cosmetology, 1 ''l The tests included questions in anatomy, bacteriology, the nervous system and J bone structure, At first glance these would ' peem rather far removed from necessary qualifications, Commentary An enlightening commentary on the situation in Washington is contained in a memorandum circulated to aU employes of the gpvefpnent panting «*#<**• Included was the following: ^'It is incumbent upon ea«h and every one of us to take reasonable Tneasures for our own )»l^p^otedion.

Those who turn to violence no longer fear the police and courts. The police are handicapped in their work and the law as interpreted by the supreme court has put a shield around defendants to a ridiculous point. Districting The state bar association is in the process of drawing new lines for judicial districts in the state. The proposal will be placed before the next legislature, The proposal is designed to equalize the load of cases in district courts. One proposal would separate Kossuth county from its long-time association in the 14tb district and tie it in with Hancock, Winnebago, Cerro Gordo, etc. The change is not viewed with any e«r thuf iaam among Kossuth attorneys beoause it Would disrupt long associations and ac- among lawyers in the old 14th.

There is no way that we can overemphasize the education of yovmg people in the practice of simple rules of safe hunting and gun handling. The rules that we have printed and taught through the columns of this newspaper are as follows: (1) Never hunit alone. (2) Never cross a fence without first unloading your gun. (3) Never allow your gun to be pointed at anything that you do not expect to .kill. (4) Always carry your gun on safe until it is on the target and take the safe off only when you are, certain that there is no danger of hitting another object or person. , (5) Keep firearms and ammunition where they cannot be reached by children, preferably under lock and key. y (6) Never shoot across a road- Benefits young j|e<iple most (7) Always ask , permission, to hunt and inform the owner and tenant where you will hunt and how long.

Woodr in ' Strong as our market system si —"and great as its accomplisih- ments have been iii the past -r- , it is nipt impregnable. It can be engulfed, even :by those with the bast intentions; for many times those who heed the superpro- ductiveness of the market system the most seem to understand it the least." / The greatest 'beneficiaries of the United States ffe* enterprise, free market economy are the young people, who ;haye to get started in life. They do not realize that without private enterprise aiVii property ownership there would be no real freedom ,' of choice for the individual—he would depen4 on the state for employment. >•'«. • Strange as it may seem, in a nation that takes pride in bo«st- . ing of its academic freedom, little of the bread and butter principles of economic* titwt speH freedom of opportunities, and the right to profit by ones own efforts, are taught in our schools and colleges. How many high schools and college students, for example, realize that representative government cannot continue to ex- isit'itt this country unless the in^ dividual retains the privilege of 'making his living without regard to political considerations? How many can see that gjoy- ernment ownership and domination of industry must be continuously resisted, not because industry is sacred, it can be controlled, but because the freedom of the individual is inseparable from the future of private enterprise? Hovf many realize that so long as representative government is thie system desired by U_. S. citizens, H is imperative that the people be constantly informed of the part private enterprise 'and private employment play in maintaining that system? ! Jf the basic principles of economics on which our nation was founded were stressed more in 'our schools, young people would ga|n greater respect for, and appreciation of, the privileges and PBportunities they enjoy under 0% representative form of government. They would acquire love for a country that gives them freedom. , (9) Be sure of the jtarget before you pull the trigger; Know identifying features of game you ' '' ' '' This is a choice?

Merrill Anderson, president of the Iowa Farm Bureau, had some good advice for housewives last week in his report to the 48th annual convention of the organization he heads. Instead of picketing grocery stores, the farm leader pointed out, they should "strike againat excefisive government spending." He said this is the reel cause of rising prices—in ill ureas, not only find.
