THE POSTVILLE WFteATP /^OST^feLE GAPITOL NEWS LETTER (Weekly News Release of the Iowa Press Association. Material contained herein does not necessarily conform to the editorial policy of this paper.) (Continued from page 1) Sep. Schwengel was the man who led the fight for the increased school appropriation in the house— a successful fight. He also strongly opposed the labor bills which were passed by the legislature, even tak ing the stilmp to speak against them on thelday of the labor inarch on the statehouse. As a result, he will have some strong support from the school peo pie and from the labor people if he should decide to run. In addition, he has a statewide acquaint ance from some years back when he was state president of the Iowa Junior Chamber of Commerce. He is the only man who admits at the moment that he is interested in the lieutenant governor nomination, although there undoubtedly will be a good many others before the deadline for nomination papers draws nigh. DR. LUNDEN. Prof. Walter A. Lunden. Iowa State College criminologist, has been doing' more work in digging up statistics about Iowa's corrective board of control institutions than any other man in a long while. Some of the recommendations •which he made about them last spring have been put into effect already. Others probably will be one day. ON HAND PURE BRAN STANDARD MIDDLINGS REDDOG FLOUR LINSEED MEAL SOY BEAN MEAL MEAT SCRAPS Hall Roberts' Son Postville, Iowa Now he proposes to the board of control that a conference of officials from the state's' corrective institutions and the,members of the board be held to discuss the overhaul, of existing penal administration. The board has not given its answer to this yet. His recommendations for bringing about improvement in the programs of the institutions include: (1) revisions will be consulted in parole cases; (2) improve case re cords, (3) greater security and guard training at the stateweforma tory and penitentiary and (4) more emphasis on vocational training and rehabilitation. Newspapers established some four years ago, at the time of the last big break from the state reformatory, that guards here have no training for their work and that there hasn't been a target range on the institution grounds since back in the early 1900's. More recently Dr. Lunden brot out that this condition hasn't been remedied. The penitentiary used to have target practice weekly for its guards before the war but the practice has been allowed to slip since and today the situation there isn't a great ; deal better than at Anamosa where the reformatory is located. The : Y ' senate's agricultural subcommittee seeking plans for a long- range farm program apparently had the same trouble^ This com mittee met in Des Moines Oct. 24 and 25 and it was necessary for Sen. Wilson of Iowa, who is a committee member, to let the public know that everyone is welcome to attend the committee's sssions and to appear, before it. YOtH SUGGESTIONS WANTED. Several Iowans found out how difficult it is to legislature new laws when they appeared before the senate agriculture committee's sub-committee which is seeking out some sound ideas for long-range farm legislation. • These men were very helpful to' the committee in telling what they thought should be done but when the committee asked for ideas as i OTHER CANDIDATES. In the last few weeks reports of other candidates-^-for jobs outside the governor's—are beginning to circulate. Mrs. Earl G. Miller, Des Moines, wife of the late secretary of state, has told friends that she will try for the Republican nomination of that office. Another Miller, Mrs. Alex Miller, Des Moines, who is no relation to the Mrs. Alex Miller, Washington^ Ia„ who served as secretary of state from 1933 to 1937 when she died in office, is also expecting to make this race according to reliable authorities. James Lucas, Bedford, who served on the attorney general's staff and as the chief counsel for the Iowa commerce commission, is reportedly eyeing fbe attorney general nomination on the Republican ticket. / CAS OF THANKS We wish>to express ouf;heartfeI^ appreciation to all who 'sp' : kindly/ assisted us and expressed their sympathy during our recent bereavement, the passing on of our beloved son and brother, Earl L, Medberry.
