Short, addressing some 10,000 persons at the official dedication of the dam and its reservoir, Lewis and Clark Lake, four miles west of here, stressed the importance of water as a natural resource. "We can no longer treat (water) as an inexhaustible resource and allow it to run untamed and wasted into the seas," he said. "Failure to harness and conserve this resources invites disaster." Referring to Gavins Point as the 'mighty mite" of the Missouri River dams, Short said it is the last dam to control the Missouri' above its mouth. One of the dam's chief functions is to smooth out the pulsating caused by power gen- ' erating 70 miles upstream at Fort J Randall Dam, near Lakes Andes S.D. Thousands of visitors from ; Iowa, Nebraska, South Dakota, Minnesota and other midwestern states toured the Gavins Point power house, which was opened for public inspection. The structure contains three generator turbine units with a combined capacity of 100,000 kilowatts of electricity.

Time Out in Hot Weather For Worker* By HARRISON WEBER (Iowa Daily Press Assn, Writer) DES MOINES s Hot muggy weather has caused at least threr state departments — conserva> tion commission, liquor control commission and commerce, commission, — to let their employees have the afternoon off abbut a half dozen times this Summer. The liquor commission and conservation commission are both located in the old "lab" building just west of the statehouse. The commerce commission is housed in the old Amos Hiatt school building which is just south of the state office building. The c om m e r c e commission building, lab building and statehouse are not ail conditioned. The state office building is air conditioned. the conservation commission recently took advantage of this by holding its meeting in the state office building instead of the lab building. Liquor commissioner C. J. Burris <D,), Maquoketa, said employees in his department have been very co-operative about the whole matter. He said they have worked late on several occasions to get the work done. Burris said the commission was afraid that some of the girls would pass out in the building and the commissioners felt it was cheaper to give the employees the afternoon off rather than to have some off work several days because of the unbearable heat. The former representatives said he felt more and more legislators were acquainted with the heat problem and that he has high hopes that an appropriation will be made by the next legislature to provide for air conditioning. Commerce Commissioner John Ropes (R), Onawa, said the commerce building, which at one time was condemned for school purposes, is air-conditioned in the winter time —"the wind blows right through the place," he quipped. However, in the summer just the opposite is truo as the temperature inside ihe building is about ten degrees warmer than outside. Ropes said he didn't think it would cost too much to air condition the building. ALWAYS FIRST QUALITY* one, two, just snap and you're thru ...

For about four years the commission had the policy of telephoning merchants to tell them when they had insufficient funds to cover the amount of their check to the commission. The commission thus afforded them the opportunity to make the check good. This was satisfactory to a certain degree since it eliminated a lot of red tape. However, the commission was racking up a $200 telephone bill each month in calling the merchants. On July 1 the commission ordered the sales tex department to place all of these calls on a collect basis. If the party refused the call then a penalty was assessed. Naturally, it was better for the person to accept the call than have the penalty assessed. Harper said ht is receiving about 100 checks a week and that only two persons have refused to accept calls since the rule went into effect. Tax Exempt? The state tax commission may ask the attorney general for an opinion on whether custom corn drying is exempt from sales tax under a bill passed by the last legislature. Some individual* go from farm to farm using equipment to dry the corn after it has been stored. Some co-operatives also hire these individuals periodically to dry corn they have stored. The commission may also ask the attorney -general to rule on whether liquid petroleum when used for turkey and chicken brooding purposes and also for water warmers and heating stock tanks falls under this statute. Incidentally, the tax commission has had more inquiries about thia law exempting fuel used in tractors and^other farm equipment from the sales tax than it ha; on the sales tax reverting from IVt to 2 per cent.
