In Ihe year ended June 30, the commission collected an extra $2,- 4fM .0 '.M in sales, use am' individual and corporation income taxes, and penalties, lor failure to pay the proper amounts. The revenue resulting from Ihtf type of commission activities lit the previous fiscal year totaled $1,731,270. The extra money went into Ihe state general hind. That fund pays tor operating the state government and provides for various types of slate aids. There are several other sources for general fund revenue, but the sales, use. and individual and corporation income taxes provide the bulk of funds for state government financing. In almost every case, the 1957 figures set new records. "Our special auditing is continuing,'' said Don Cunningham, director of the sales a.'d use tax division. George Eischeid, director ol the income tax division, echoed Cunningham's assurance. "We don't know whether we will be as successful in fiscal 1958 as we were in the past year," Cunningham continued. "But we will improve the record." i He said the previous record was ' set in liscal 1954, and that he hoped the new record wouldn't 1 stand as long as the previous one did. "This extra money wouldn't have gone into the general lubd except tor the special auditing jdone." Eischeid commented.

The discovery resulted from Ihe joint efforts of scientists from the Argonne National Laboratory near Chicago, the Atomic Energy Research Establishment at Harwell, England, and the Nobel Institute. Nobelwm is very unstable, having a half life of 10-12 minutes. II loses half of its radioactivity in that period, giving off alpha particles consisting of two protons and two neutrons. Fields said the new element is a solid but has not been obtained in sufficient quantity to determine its color, melting or boiling temperature. Explain Iowa Plan School Of Religion NEW YORK UP—Two Iowa clergymen just back from a tour of European universities reported Tuesday that they received mixed reactions when they suggested the Institutions adopt an "Iowa plan" for courses in religion The clergymen, the Rev, Robert Welch, a Roman Catholic priest, and the Rev. Dr. George Forell, a Lutheran minister, both teach at the University of Iowa school of religion. They explained the Iowa plan at nine leading German. Swiss and French universities, ll embraces separate religions courses for college undergraduates, who receive college credits. Such courses in state-supported accular institutions are unknown in Europe.

Father Welch said he was certain the religious study program could work well in most places, both here and abroad, if it is tried. For it to be successful, however, the Jewish, Catholic and Prot- estani faiths must take pari from the beginning on an entirely equal basis, Father Welch added. Very often, he said, objections to the plan come "not from the irreligious but Irom the religious, and the reason they give is Let's leave well enough alone.' " The clergymen said they feel the Iowa type of program helps people to a more mature understanding of religion and its importance Religion See Page 8 Bill Blocks All Measures See Postponement of Some Administration Legislation to Next Year WASHINGTON 1* - Sen Knowland iR -Califi t<>!d President Eisenhower Tuesday thai the current.
