This Investigation is of particular Interest in Kossuth, because Oeo. W. Godfrey, O f Irv- Ington township, is a member of the state board of education. Mr. Godfrey does not believe that the Investigations will reveal any wrong doing on the part of the board of any university official. By Rep. Byron G. Allen. Des Molnes, Jan. 24 — Governor Dan W. Turner stepped into the state university, controversy Saturday, when he .sent a message to and Representative Marlon R. Mc- House and Senate requesting that a Joint commjbteo be Instructed to • •• ' Investigate, the board of education and other officials. This: followed an executive meet- Ing of the House committee on state educational institutions at the Hotel Savery Thursday evening. Current comment has it that the committee considered the controversy, though no member of the committee was wllllngr to Issue a statement as to .what took place, behind the closed 'doors. Cedar Rapids Paper Backs Scrap. A Cedar Rapids newspaper, the Evening Gazette-Republican, has been waging an editorial battle to secure a legislative investigation and for many weeks has been sending marked copies with articles by Verne Marshall, the editor, to members of the assembly, other state officials, and the governor. Marshall has been at Des Moolnes during most of the week, and has spent much time with various senators and representatives, especially those who hold membership in the two state educa/tional institutions commi'tteees. It is understood that he had several audiences with the governor and thjut his attacks on the administration of affairs at Iowa City will be the cause of any official action which may be taken. The Cedar Rapids editor's attacks have .resulted from private investigations by himself and his news paper. It is said that a committee representing the state medical so ciety has investigated the state hos pital and the medical college and that; apother private investigation has been conducted' by an association of Iowa building contractors relative to alleged incompetency of J. M. Pisk, university superlnten dent of building and grounds. President Jessup Under Fire. President Walter A. Jessup is charged by Editor Mai-shall with be ing an arch-lobbyist and head • of the educational institution's pollti cal machine. He is accused of per mltting irregularities, incompetence and even corruption. The athletic scandal of 1929 looms again. Jessup is alleged by Mar the m to be declared ineligible save himself from disgrace. President Jessup and George T. Baker, Davenport, president of the state board of education, have re plied that they' ."welcome" an in ments immediately following Turn er's message to the legislature. hearings on the tax committee's in come tax bill and the county as The first was held aessor bill.

RADIO SAVES LIFE OF EX-BURT YOUTH Last week's Burt Monitor repuu- Hshed this story from a Milwaukee paper: (Milwaukee's new radio squad car system functioned speedily Sunday to save the life of a young man who tried to die because he believed his romance was blighted. > Marlon Clark, 25, machinist employed by the A. O. Smith corporation, had been courting Estes Kuse. They had an "understanding." But Saturday night, lover-like, the couple quarreled. Miss Kuse said later it wasn't much of a tiff, but Marlon felt downhearted, feeling all was over.

Bonnstetter. most. vigorous H ° £ SC °"' 8ubs " tut » resolution -- . thus far taken on the proposed amendment. This would- have been a polite way of nullfying the substance of the Short resolution. Members in sympathy with the substitute resolution argued that the attorney-general's oplnfon was n o better than any other lawyer's, and that th«y were striving to save the attorney-general from an embarrassing position. Members in sympathy with the original resolution argued that in the 42nd general assembly a similar resolution had been offered but defeated, and later this blunder cost the state $300,000. A significant remark was made in the debate by one of the old members, who said that much to their regret members of the previous sessions had too often taken. the opinions of outside attorneys on mat ters before the House. After much, discussion the, substitute resolution was defeated 60-44, and the original was adopted 63-37. It is stHl a mystery to me, why the amendment crowd sought to avoid passage of the Short resolu- , „, tion, but I feel that' the matter will f,'' be cleared up in the near future. The House Is gradually settling down to business. It takes time to get properly organized, but by the beginning of next week we hope to be grinding- at full capacity. Members have been more or 'less annoyed by lobbyists while we were in session. Friday Representative Donlon, of Palo Alto, and Representative Pendray (a woman), of Jackson, protested against this nuisance. The speaker then advised members that it was'their privilege to invoke Rule C4, which prohibits lobbyists from remaining on the floor when the House is in Session. I consider myself reasonably fortunate in committee assignments, A 'list of eight committees on which I desired to serve was submitted to the speaker, and I was selected to serve on seven, with only one substitution.

After each lesson, games are played in the church basement. Next Sunday, families attending are to bring basket dinner, and hot coffee will be served In the basement. An afternoon service will be held in addition to the other two. A choir of young people from Sexton sang Sunday evening, and rendered a fine special number, "The Man of Galilee."
