BIGGEST MYSTERY now is the intention of Senator Hickenlobpfer,' whose,, term expires at the end of the next election,; He has been in the senate since 1945 and is credited with an excellent record. He ; is , also popular and well known in lowk. ' ' It is believed Hickenlooper could have the nomination if he wants it, though/ sev- ' era! have lightning rods Up 'just in case he doesn't. These include David &anjey; ,Mus> catine, Don Johnson, former, hattotuu Legion commander, West Branch; atiid James , fbrmer, congressman, Cedar Ra* pids, Others may develop as the slon of the legislature unfolds and either bounces men to the forefront or drops them into political liriibb. WHILE THfe SENATE race waits there w a wide open field for governor. Hughes $iii, not run 'for, a, fourth term — he must ga uji or out. This means a. democrat in Wife two years Will seek to win support. , (r . -Mentioned at this stage of the game Is, RoHert Fulton, present lieut.-gov&rhor W)B Had a marrow squeak in being reeleoti ed.this foil, and Paul Franzeniburg, of Coft- riS, present treasurer reelecteid in the 1966 election. On the republican side Robert K. Beck is itching to make another run after his narrow defeat for the homiiiatibh by Miir- ' r'a> 1 . >Also Stanley is considering the goy'er- nor race. Statfe Senator Max Mills, who rtoftrly upset Fulton, is still in the senate . arid has a potent forum to advance his ideas. ... ••;': ' : . : < ' : " '. .-',;. ' ' THERE ARE OTHERS also in the offing. Senate Ledder Robert Rigler, is •one. Also when Maurice Baringer, Oelwein, was elected speaker for the 1967 session he automatically becomes a potential prospect. The coming hassiles in the legislature , will 'have a marked effect on the political for1.unes of everyone concerned. Hughes is vitally affected because he must deliver on his promises and faces an astute and pb- ter.t republican force. Governors i usually lose face as their length of service expands. He is thus under the gun in more ways than one. Actually the races for the 1968 election will start on January 1, 1967. For politicians it will be an interesting year. Is the test unfair?

' ,Some of this may be the result of what many professional groups call "up-grading" the' profession, f which in, the parlance of the public sometimes means keeping newcomers out so those who are in, can have a bit of a monopoly and less competition.

Th'e association of cosmbtbtbgy schools charges the board determines the number who can pass even before the examination is given. •!'

The recent decision of the state prinl- board to take bids on printing prases use by the state recalls the uproar,of ie 15 years ago when they were bfc)ine<$ the legisJature. At that time a committee of the s^nite id several of these small duplicating >ses in departments. There was no ac- ng for the press nor for the product. ; least one ins^ince it was 'd^aovered m departjnent was prM^;jjpj|r^t |f sgnds of pjeces seeking pay increases better status for the'd^iE^nelit.

It was found the cost of operating them far exceeded what the printing would have cost on a bid batis. . .„, ,N9W ilgeen^ the dqor is being opened again and the printing board is ambitious to do the printing for the legislature of bills and journals. , _ Ja the past the new bills and the day's proceedings were picked up at 5 p.m. daily and were printed during the night and placed on legislator's desks the next morning. In many cases the printer was hard pressed to make it during rush times, but the private printer never failed. It i|i doubtful any government printing agency pan come up with comparable serv* at anywhere near the cost. Red China The vote on admitting Red China to the United Nations lost by a bigger vote tlib year than last. Actually the proposal was to |jve lied China the place now held by,Nationalist China and kicking the latter out. The vote this year reflected a change of, heart by come small nations who viewed Red China's actions in Viet Nam and other areas such as Indo China with distaste. Many small nations which formerly supported Red China 'have gained enough stability tand experience In the world to change their position. They became disil- i • AftiertCan agriculture England's Welfare state (M«.) Democrat) dwcllets in general teem uhaware of significant changes taking place in American agriculture. They should pay more attention, to such developments which will affect them in terms of both food costs and international retettoni, In ft seme, this country's huge and noUbly efficient machine for producing food and fiber is in the process of shifting gears. After a lohg. period of holding back to avoid letting farm surpluses; get oiiiof hand, the farmers are 'noW being Urged to in- creasb their output Of major crops. This reflects tiWo factors. One is that there are, substantially lower stocks of dairy products, wheat-and feed grains tha.fi iri the recent past. Another is-that, as rising world food needs become increasingly evident, there is more and mare talk of using American agriculture all-out as a Weapon to fight world huttger. Farm Income in, the United States How stands at record levels on a per farm basis. Gene Futrell, an Iowa State University economist who special- istes in this area, 'predicts that 1967 farm income will equal or perhaps even surpass this year's, He feels that rhcderats production irticreases in feed grains, wheat, soybstos, hogs, milk and cattle are warranted, But he also notes the danger that rising farm prices mey be inflationary, artd warns that production increases should be made "prudently and in line with expected demands." That advice, sound at - any time, is particularly apt at a time wiheti the .national: economy appeafs to.be in for someihing of a slow* down. Whatever happens, however, farm product exports are likely to go rising. They .went up atoout $600 million this year and are expected to go higher in 1966-67. If national policy shifts to place emphasis on turning U.S. agriculture loose against world hungeir, farmers may experience an unprecedented boom. not n inflatidii (CP.WoodilH Sheldon Mail) For years, the U. S.'has "i.... .. ed" creeping inflation. The planners tell us itjs p gopd for us. M it is like a rattlesnake that goes his way Uititil Int^r/erred with, then ife rattle warns. Now the rattles of inflatibh are heard on .all;sides'.';/ ! -'v;.//,-',,-; .' ' ; ^:. - '.';: Writing in the August issue of The Reader's Digest, W. L. White discusses "The Rising Risk of Runaway Inflation." He explains how foreign e^ntries can clean He says: - ; 'iDwiiii' ftiok;»f v our country's history; gold has served as a valuable alarnv system — and has given, ..the', dtizeh a check on, his government. If ; the government was ^extravagantly spending more than it took in . ... a citizen cotild, protect him- self against inflation by ing and getting gold for his paper money at any bank. These •Withdrawals could constitute a sterniw arning,, to gov-eirniment ahd banks to put their affairs in •.order. ' •-' •". - '•' :.- ••''-. •.- • • .' "Today 'the American people him longer, have this .protection, or this check on government ex- travagsirica; Our dollar is illll distantly linked to- gold, .since oiir Treasury will still redeem its paper money by selling gold bkrs abroad at the rate .of 35 papfeir dollars per ourica. But on: ly foreign banks or foreign governments may buy these bars. An American citizen violates the ' law by buying, .selling or owning bile; And even this distant link to gold is weakening as, with our price inflation, our gold stocks dwindle." Is admitting tb tiredness begiiiiiihg tb be called sin? (Dorothy Rtid in West Dos Moines Express) It just occured.to me^tlie other day that apparently the only sin left is that of admitting that you are tiired and want to rest a few day, '':,;• .•;..; . : , •,,•'.-.. : Who would dare, in .this day a nd, :,age,,> refuse '•.'.:to' iWork^on^a^ . •••• : - -i^".. ~ jf* ^--.v^'A rv-iiy*:tv1J..-W.*<^i'-*rfW i A.^.*'.*'i i iw« committee, go to a party or club, . or work on a drive, by admitting that they were "just too tired?" No, we have to think up some other excuse. ; « A friend of mine said recently, "I would give anything for a day of complete rest and quiet —just be by mysfelf for a ; whole; day, but 1 can't seem to doit." I had always supposed that she.just loved dashing• madly from one thing to another every day in the week and have always admired her stamina. , We have all kinds of weeks, such as National Pickle Week, 'National Library Week, etc., so it^ seems to me that we might a£ well add another National V^feek — say a National Rest Week. This might change the-entire 'stats' of the nation. Wliio ktiows, maybe patients would be allowed to rest for a week after njajbr surgery just like they did in the "olden .days? Blame tax'"boost on war? (Paul Smith in Rock Rapids Reporter) Col. T. R. Mikesch said last week that half of the 800 lives which will be lost' in highway crashes, in Iowa, this year, could have been saved if those in the oars involved had been using seat belts. . Mikesch should/ know what he is talking about—he 'is the commander of the state highway patrol and has first hand access to all of the records detailing what happens when highway accidents occur in Iowa. We know that there are a lot Half of lives could be saved C, P. Woods in Sheldon Sun It is a good bet that before very long the nation will be told that taxes must go up to meet the cost of the war in Viet Nam. However, when tax increase comes, Viet Nam will not be entirely to blame. Far from it. A large part of the blame can be laid directly at the door of the expanding cost of welfare state, In a penetrating article in The Reader's Digest on federal spending, Henry Hazlitt, the well-known economist and columnist, reports, that, "in the cash budget for the fiscal year J967, total national defense ex? penditures are estimated at 101.4 billion. Npndefense sp$nd- irig comes to $83.6 billion. . . . defense costs in this H year period (Prior to J967) have risen only 120.5 billion wjhile non- defense spending has increased ^y $52 b|lHm" For 1^7, npn. defense speading is $1? billion more tjiaji in 1965, 123! billion more than jn 1963, and §32 billion more than in 1961. As Mr. Hazlitt eonetedes. ". . .don't let anyone tell you that we need to levy $5 billion or so.of ijKfea)?- e4 tsixes to 'prevent inHgtion 1 or to pay for the Vie$ Nain war. The money Is f mtfs$ fcnjy W pay for th« extravagant Great Society progrgjiis of tile last group fooled of people who just will not use seat belts. They have a thousand reasons—none of which are very valid—but they won't use seat belts. We suspect that it is a perverse attitude to the effect that "no one is going to tell me what to do," There are people like that—people who would rather risk their lives than have someone tell them they ought to use seat belts, With that type of person there is no answer—just let them go along their merry way, Those of you who respect your necks and Want to keep them in healthy condition—use seat belts when you go out in your car! few years." This may seem-like a harsh indictment of humanitarian goals allegedly inspiring much of the current social legislation — until it is realized that the spending policies of the federal government are slowly, but steadily, spreading impoverishment, rather than curing it. The third (W. C. Jarnagin in Storm Lake Register) George Mills, a political writer; for the .Des Moines Register, seems' tb have taken the place of his old buddy Cy Clifton. George writes from a non-partisan standpoint. However, we think he is somewhat inclined to favor the Democratic party. Just; a wee bit, that is. But he wrote brie the other day that we think sized up the situation prior to the recent election. He declared that "pork barrel" promises on the part of freshman Democratic congressmen didn't lure the voters. SeemsL that the custom at Washington, when the adminis- -traitibn decides to grant a federal hand-out, is to notify the Congressman from the district to Which, the same will go. Then the congressman makes the announcement. Nothing new about this. The Republicans did it too, as friends 'of former Congressman Charley Hoeven will admit. But we think that the custom was overdone in the. months preceding the election. So many federal grants .were announced, involving the taxpayers money, that it actually became more or less amusing. . As George Mills says one release mentioned the name of the congressman 16 times. We think George is right .in pointing-out "that"Iowa-voters*-oan- not be cajoled into supporting a congressman just because he claims credit for having brought a bunch of/federal money into the district." t Prestige dropping X. '' (Don Reid in West Des Moines Express We have always had a lot of respect for the Supreme Court. We were brought up that way. Still, if the present Court persists in its odd ways, we are afreid it will lose much of the prestige built through the years. Particularly obnoxious is the decision that lets criminals go free if it can be brought out they were not fully appraised of •their "rights" at the time of arrest, trial and sentence. Whether or not the criminal was guilty seems to have no bearing on it. It makes it pretty hard for the peace officers and presenting attorneys to obtain a conviction. It seems like a proper interpretation of the law would show fully as much respect for the rights of the victim as for the rights of the murderer. We live in an odd world when this is not the case. (C. P. Wood* in Sh«ld6n Son) Great britain is several years further down the road of the total welfare state philosophy than the United States. And according to news reports, it is now entering a period of crisis lihat even the most adroit political maneuvering can no longer avoid.' Prime Minister 1 Wilson and his, government have imposed a wage-freeze program, and. he has told trade union leaders he would invoke the law of the land to prevent sabotage of the govern memt's wage-price policies. It is expected that the present effort to stabilize the eeonommy of Britten will lead to substantial unemployment next year and the shelving of some cherished plans for social advancement in.

As the United States continues to expand its own inflationiary welfare program, it might pay for our voters and our poufaci 4 ans to take a second/look at the impending ordeal confronting the people of Great Britain. We are on the same collision coutse with debt, taxes and inflation.. Hbpeful (Paul Smith in Reck Rapids Reporter We certainly hope a lot of ttie "far-out" ideas which have been started % the national admin- istraition in the past few years, are slowed down or stopped completely.
