1I PAGE TWO. THE POSTVILLE HERALD. POSTVILLE, IOWA_ [CAPITOL INEWS 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 I) no more wholesale prices for the and at the price demanded. There's board, in other words. This might go far toward explaining why the recent special legislative session appropriated an additional million dollars to the legislative interim committee to be used for emergency purposes. It appears very much.-as though the board of control is going to find itself in need of this money before the present fiscal year is out June 3. At the present rate of spending, there will be a deficit in its appropriation from the reguler 1947 session by that time.

New highs were established in income—both farm and industrial— during 1947. according to recent figures of the Iowa Development Commission. The highlight of a big'year, said the commission, was that: '"In spite of sizeable reductions in crop production. Iowa farmers experienced an increase in income of 54 percent, or the largest in history of the state and the largest increase experienced by any state. "Agriculture income was expected to reach $2,700,000,000 compared with $1,793,000,000 in 1946. The per- farm income was estimated to be in excess of $12,000. "The per capita income for the state as a whole has increased more than 150 percent from 1940 to 1947. Per capita income for 1947 probably will be up 25 percent over 1946, or from $1,183 to $1,575. "The value of manufactured products also broke all records for 1947, with an estimated total of $1,-! 515,000,000. Iowa.maintained its position as the No. 1 agriculture state of the nation, producing 10 percent of- the nation's food supply. "Iowa continued its industrial growth during 1947. The labor force reached its highest total in the history of the state and at the same time unemployment reached a new low. "Bank deposiis reached an all- time peck in 1D47 and the state banking department reported that banks were never in a more sound! condition. I "Retail sales reached an all-time | high, estimated at S2,051.923.650— I about 20 percent over 1946. Retail I purchases per family averaged 52,095. POLL. One of the first straw polls on the 1948 presidential race was made by the Cedar Rapids Gazette recently. The Gazette asked readers to vote on their choice for President in 1943 and listed the following candidates: Dewey. Eisenhower. Taft. Stassen. Truman. Wallace. MacArthur. Warren, Vandenberg and Martin. Here's how the 454 readers who voted stood: Taft. 135: Dewey. 83: Stassen. 73: Truman. 44: Wallace. 39: MacArtbur..30:Eisenhower. 22: Warren. 14: Vandenberg. 7: Martin. 3. There were four write-in votes, one of each for Sen. Wayne Morse of Oregon. John L. Lewis, Secretary of State George C. Marshall and Henry J. Kaiser. An interesting sidelight was the fact that many Taft voters said MacArthur was their second choice, and vice versa: on the other hand. Dewey voters listed Stassen as second choice and vice versa, while in some instances Eisenhower and Warren were listed as third choices. This indicates a real battle between the conservative and liberal wings of the Republican party at the national ^convention in Philadelphia in June. FIGHT OVER. The state has now submitted to the federal government a three- point plan which, state authorities say, will result in continued federal aid to the state health department. If true, this will end the fight that has been raging over the department's merit system for some time.
