PAGE TWO. THE POST; VILLE HERALD. POSTVILLE. IOWA WEDNESDAY, APRIL 7, State News Letter- " (Continued from page one) The stale convention will be at KRNT radio theater at Des Moines May 15. The Democrats will put up more candidates in this election in the various counties than in 1946, Iowa Chairman Jake S. More announced recently. This visually is true in a presidential election year. So far no one has appeared on the horizon to challenge Guy M. Gillette for the senatorial nomination nor Carroll O. Switzer for the gubernatorial nomination among the Democrats. Republicans will have a contest in both races. The deadline for candidates file nomination papers this year April 2S. to CANDIDATES TOGETHER? First time all of the candidates for the gubernatorial nomination may get together at the same speakers' table at the same time may be at the Iowa Council for Better Education meeting in Des Moines April 12. Many organizations in an election year invite the candidates of both parties to appear simultaneous!:, so their memberships will have an opportunity to see them in the flesh. MAUTZ GAVE ME THE ANSWERS! COSTS TO BE MAYOR. When Mayor John MacVicar was making preparations to retire from office and politics;—after six years as mayor and six as streets commissioner—he told a reporter that it had cost him $8,000 to hold office in his present position. He put his finger on a point which has a lot of people thinking—salaries of city officials. One of the big reasons why fewer and fewer people seek the city positions usually can be traced to the amount of the salary involved. The legislature regulates the salaries which cities can pay their officials. Undoubtedly there will be an attempt in the next session to get pay raises in addition to* those allowed by recent sessions in the hope that cities will be allowed to pay enough to attract more capable' candidates for the full time positions.

Harry Tru man is getting most of the blame, but the party's sorry plight is a natural outcome of things that have gone before. It isn't Harry Truman's fault that this nation has been plunged into a debt that has nearly strani led our nation's economy. It isn't Truman's fault that New- Deal totalitarianism has practically hamstrung private enterprise. It isn't Truman's fault that labor has been permitted to get drunk with power and go on a wild spree of strikes. It isn't Truman's fault that the Nesv Deal foreign policy of vaccila- tion. appeasement, and of international doles has jeopardized the peace of the world. Let's give credit where credit is due. Harry Truman merely happens to be so unfortunate as to have inherited the rotten remains of FDR's New Deal. Harry came along just in time to reap the whirlwind. " We pity him. But pity for Truman is a secondary matter among the American people today. The dominant feeling today is one of DISGUST. Disgust with the Nesv Deal spoils system. Disgust with New Deal padding of government payrolls. Disgust with New Deal hiking of taxes. j Disgust with New Deal dictation of policy for private business. I Disgust — in. sh<?rt— with NEW DEAL !—Decorah Public Opinion. TOWN COUNCIL PROCEEDINGS. 27.00 .76 THANK YOU. I svish to extend my sincere thanks and appreciation to friends neighbors and relatives for their calls, cards, letters and flowers ss'hich svere bestosved upon me while I was at St. Mary's hospital in Rochester, Minn.—Leo Heins.

A- dog, who used to cause a few raised eyebrows in Redfield because he was frequently found sleeping on the hood of • his osvner's car in the downtown district, was struck by another car last week and killed. Pal belonged to Seymour Dalen and was also an "honorary member" of the Redfield fire department. WOULDN'T TH*. A ten pin which wobbled, but svouldn't tip os'er, kept George Delperdang of Remsen from having a perfect bowling game there one night recently. The mishap happened on the first frame. Mr. Delperdang then rolled 11 consecutive strikes and folloss'ed them svith a twelfth, which didn't count, just to see if he could do it. More than 1,000 Iosva motorists are driving svith extra care these days. They have received letters telling them that one more traffic violation means the loss of their drivers license. The first letter svas sent out February 28 from the Department of Public Safety. In 12 cases drivers has'e committed another violation after receive ing the letter and their licenses have been suspended. Suspensions as-erage approximately 90 days. The letters are part of the Department's "Drivers Improvement Program." They are being sent out at the rate of about six a day nosv, according to Don Hughes, Supervisor of the program. The backlog svhich existed svhen the program began has been taken care of and violations are now handled as they are reported. Tsvo hearings before District Patrol Sergeants have been granted since the start of the program. As the result of one of the hearings the license svas returned to the driver. There has not been a report on the other case as yet. The attitude of the driver and the frequency and flagrancy of the violations determine the decisions of the Sergeants. They make their recommendations to the Commissioner of Public Safety. Hughes said that if a person does not violate the traffic Iasvs for 12 months after receiving a letter, he will not then be faced svith the threat of suspension upon one more violation. Hosvever, another violation svould start the process over again. Examples of poor driving records svhich have resulted in suspensions svere noted by Hughes. Failure to obey a boulevard stop and speeding caused one driver to lose his license. Another svas suspended when he repeatedly refused to dim his lights when meeting other cars at night, svhile a third motorist can blame reckless driving for the loss of his driving privilege.

It's on the "It'Parade i \ T'S much the same way with cars as with people. Some "have it" — some don't. Some you go for, all out — without quite being able to lay a finger on why. And those — well, they usually become your firmest friends. Wh> rhat is it that makes so many good folks say this trim honey's "got it"? Good looks? One has to admit it's nice to ride in a car that is unmistakably itself and not just a slightly modified version of something else. Size, weight?
