is an Emergency? Question Ties Up Purse By DWIGHT MCCORMACK DES MOINES m— The question of what constitutes an emergency has virtually tied tight the purse strings of the Iowa Legislative Interim Committee* The committee serves for the Legislature between sessions. It was given the usual two million dollars by the last session. The fund is to be used to meet emergencies in state government agencies in the next two years. But numerous requests from various agencies for allocations from the fund in the last three months have been turned down. In two instances earlier this week the committee first made alloca­ tions, then rescinded them. 1 Among the requests rejected this week was one from the state fire marshal's office. It joined with the State Safety Department in asking $31,430. The money was to be used mostly for enforcement of forthcoming fire safety regulations for nursing and custodial homes. After the committee action on this request, Russell Brown, new acting state safety commissioner, who has jurisdiction over the fire marshal's office, declared: "As far as I'm concerned at the moment, I can see no possible way we can enforce these particular fire regulations." The committee's actions are based on several opinions from the office of Atty. Gen. Norman Erbe. One, which has been repeated, is that the committee cannot make allocations except for emergencies. Another is that the committee cannot make allocations from the fund for any purpose rejected by the Legislature itself. A third is that the committee cannot supplement legislative appropriations. The attorney general hasn't specifically defined an emergency. State Comptroller Glenn Sarsfield, who appeared before the committee this week, was asked what he considers an emergency. He re 8 Times Herald, Carroll, Iowa Saturday, Aug. 17, 1957 plied: "It just about takes an act of The Almighty to create an emergency." At that point, Rep. W. J. Johannes (D-Ashton), a veteran legislator and member of the committee, asked: "Are we going to let the attorney general run this committee? Emergencies can cover a lot of things. If we're going to abide by the rulings, we might just as well close up and go home." Rep. Casey Loss (D-AIgona), an­ other long-time lawmaker, said he agreed with Johannes and added: "If we are going to keep the fund for strict emergencies, we might as well turn in the two million dollars." But Sen. Frank Byers (R-Cedar Rapids), who has served in the last 15 sessions of the Legislature, took a different view. He said: "This year for the first time we have been trying to live within the law. If these things were emergencies it would be all right to make allocations." Then Rep. George Paul (R- Brooklyn), committee chairman and also a veteran at lawmaker,] observed: "I think the intent of the Legis-j lature was for us to go ahead and' use our best judgment oh these requests, as the committee has done in the past. I think we are just passing the buck in asking these opinions." Johannes commented that he had served on previous interim committees, 'and they didn't run to the attorney general for a ruling on everything. They did what they thought was right, and nobody objected." Sarsfield warned the committee that he wouldn't write state warrants for use of committee funds in disregard of the attorney general's rulings. "If a public official follows the attorney general's rulings, he is not personally liable," the comptroller commented. "If he doesn't follow the rulings, he is personally liable. If a later ruling shows the attorney general was wrong in the first place, the public' official is protected if he followed the original opinion." Sarsfield then was asked what about allocation* made by previous interim committees. "We didn't have the attorney 'general's rulings then that we have now," the comptroller replied. Even though the previous committees have been more liberal in allocation of their funds, they still ended up their bienniums with sizable balances/ Sarsfield said that out of the two-million - dollar appropriations to the committees in recent bien­ niums, there usually is a million or more turned back at the end of each two-year period. The committee's purposes are two-fold, in the main. One is to administer the emergency fund, The other is to give approval for the use of earmarked appropria-, Hons made to various state agencies by the Legislature itself, usually for capital improvements. Boom Town Today Short On Night By BOB POWELL MASSENA, N. Y. 1*1 — Money, men and machines have pushed wine, women and song into the background in this northern New York boom area. Billion-dollar St. Lawrence Power and Seaway construction has this once-quiet community^." over-populated by the influx of workers, swirling in a new economy and thriving in the dust of multi-ton, land-moving machines. Massena and its river neigh bora are bursting at their econ omic and social seams. • This transformation prompts many to label the village a boom town, but the natives decry the name. "Boom town connotes a honky tonk. rowdy, disorganized sit' uation." says Roger P. Hansen, youthful executive secretary of the Massena Chamber of Com merce. "Expanding Economy" "We would rather you referred to our good fortune as a rapidly expanding economy." Massena's economy began its "rapid" expansion in 1954 when, after years of talk, final approval was given the St. Lawrence power and seaway projects. Although work on the seaway was delayed until the spring of 1955, thousands of workers quickly formed a manpower supply line to northern New York as soon as enabling legislation passed. Automobiles carrying the red dust of Texas and the dried black mud of Mississippi rolled northeastward. Off buses, trains and planes came nearly 7,000 job- seeking men ready to use brawn and brain. "At first," says Rev. William 0. Thomas, pastor of the First Methodist Church, "the villagers were apprehensive about the coming of these new people. They were pleasantly surprised." Two construction workers now hold seats on the board of Rev. Thomas' church. These modern day nomads, who travel from one construction job to another, are "surprisingly settled," said Massena Police Chief Thomas O'Neil. "There, are none of the redeye, wild-time affairs among these men," he said. "Most of these workers are married and have families. They are • settled; if one can be settled living the life they do." Industry Moving In Once aluminum and milk were the main sources of income in St. Lawrence County, which contains Massena. The Aluminum Co. of America was the county's top em ployer, with more than 6,000 workers on an estimated 30-million-dollar annual payroll. Milk production ranked second. The county js the nation's third highest milk producer and the New York milkshed'g largest supplier. The power project means cheap and assured power to Alcoa's reduction plant. The company will spend about 125 million dollars to expand facilities. Milk, on the other hand, is suffering from a manpower shortage. As one farmer put it: "1 just can't compete with those construction and industrial wages. The day of paying a fellow $50 a month and board is gone in this part of the country." The dairy farmer's plight won't be eased after construction days end. Because of the prospect of cheap and abundant power, the Reynolds metal company, and the Chevrolet Division of General Motors Corp. have broken ground for plants in nearby Rooseveltown. Reynolds is spending 88 million dollars and the automobile plant will cost 12 million. Other companies are scouting •ites. WW Settle Down There is a general feeling that when the construction boom is over, many workers will fettle down and seek employment in the new industrial center. One man who hopes to make Massena his permanent home after 16 years with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is Harvey Day. ' • "I have made application to remain here with the corps when work is completed." he said. "My wife and family love this country and we feel it is about time we settled down, anyway." Day said many other men had the same feeling. When all of the dams are sealed, including the main power project structure at Barnhart Island, 38,000 acres in the United States and Canada will be under water. A PLACE IN THE SUN . . . Francois Massau, of Wavre, Belgium, made a dream come true when he successfully planned and built this ingenious house that revolves automatically to follow the sun.

Search Is on For'Clean 1 Tranquilizers By JERRY BENNETT NEA Staff Correspondent WASHINGTON—(NEA) - Drug companies are trying to produce a tranquilizing pill that's as "clean" as the H bomb. They're anxious to reduce the "fallout' side effects like jaundice and palsy-type shakes which temporarily strike some nervous executives after the pill has calmed them down. And they won't be completely contented' until they have one that's 100 per cent "clean." Dr. Jonathan Cole, drug expert for the National Institute of Mental Health, reports a number of the large drug companies are working "a mile-a-minute" on the project. Startling Results However, the "dirty" pills are still showing startling results in the fight against mental illness. In addition to patients, they're even affecting the management and "architecture of mental hospitals. Dr. Cole believes tranquilizers are placing less emphasis on the need for large state institutions to treat mentally ill people.

Dr. Cole predicts tranquilizers, along with other psychiatric improvements, will enable more regular community hospitals to care for mental cases.
