Grandfather clocks hobbyfor 3 5 years Kiwanianshear Casey Loss on recent session Casey Loss, state representative from Kossuth, told the Kiwanis club Thursday that the session which ended a couple of weeks ago was the hardest and longest of his many sessions. One factor that was most important was the attitude of members obligated to organized labor, with particular attention to the repeal of the so-called right to work law. Mr. Loss said he voted for the union shop, but that he couldn't help himself because he needed labor votes to further the governor's program on other matters. Mr. Loss said he was.certain the bill would be defeated in the senate, which it was. He said the entire tax program of the state needs intense study, and that a $50,000 appropriation was made for such a study by tax experts, perhaps rom Harvard. The,tax structure is way out )f balance in Iowa, not only as ar as property tax is concerned, but in many other fields of taxation. Mr. Loss said there were only .5 former members in the democratic party in the house, and " — don't paint your husband guilty" Plea to Iowa wives: Don't overload your husband with too much sense of guilt or blame or sin. He's liable to stumble! Even if he's mildly silly once or twice a year, be merciful. (He's a better husband if you let him feel faintly heroic!) * * ' # Brainy chess players stun me; I've never learned the game.

Don't look yet, but almost twice as many people go to the Zoos of America than to the Art Museums. Dos Moines doesn't have an adult 100, opens a Children's Zoo this summer. We will have an adult loo as soon as some guilt- haunted nabob decides to atone for his sins. * * * My BW thinks she'd enjoy a baseball game more if they'd show a closeup of the athlete as he went to bat or made a fielding play "They don't look like athletes in those, -funny costumes," she says, "& they don't show any personality, in those funny caps & bloomers." * * * Collegians keep writing mo how dissatisfied they are with campus food, "So wo're forced to live on pizia a> hamburgers," observes one, Most of 'em think so little of their breakfasts that they prefer to skip 'em A catch an extra 30 minutes of sleep. * * * Every day a few cars full of • tourists & small-town biggies pause at our driveway & peer at our yard & into our windows.
