'' ALGONA, IOWA, MARCH 19, 1931 Number 27 AGAINST HIRE OF RELATIVES By A. H. Bonnstetter. State house, Des Molnes, Mar. 14— think it might interest' some of the eople of Kossuth county to learn bout 'experlencoB a new'' legislator meets In Introducing and sponsoring bill through the House, and to tat end I ahall discuss H. F. 204, y myself. The measure simply provided that It shall be unlawful for any school x>ard to employ or to authorize the mployment of any person rm teach- r who la related by consanguinity affinity within the third degree o any member of said board." The department of public instruc- on at once indorsed the proposed aw, and supplied me with ample in- ormatton to show its .necessity. My t>servatlon has been that nearly all f our sub-district school squabbles ver the election of a director con- em around his hiring a daughter or lose relative to teach the school. nformation from the department as p ell as reports from a large per- entage of the county superintend- rits plainly indicated that .1 was qrrect in my conclusions. Bill Meets Snag. The department of Public Instruc- ion also pointed out that If we wish o enter upon, an economy program or our schools one of the first steps must be to eliminate the condition hich allows a director to set the ages for an employed relative. Of course I felt that I was spon- orlng a meritorious measure but an xperienced legislator would never ave Introduced the bill, because its assage is Impossible for the follow- ng reasons: first, because many of le members are connected with chools, and some are Indulging in he very practices to which I ob- ect; second, we have secretaries nd pages whose dads are members f the legislature, which condition is Imilar to that of our schools (this erhaps is another reason why wo ,ired the 20 extra clerks!). The bill was Indefinitely post- Oned In the Judiciary committee. Re'dlstrlctlng Bill Turned Down. Another measure I sponsored is I. P. 356, a senatorial redistrlctlng ilan. , Friday morning this bill, with' hre'6 'others," waBHaken'-np' for con- ideratlon, and in my judgment the most unfair'plan, H. F. Ill, was 'laced on the House calendar. My eaaons for believing this follow: The constitution says the senatorial districts, shall be apportioned according to the population, as shown ly the last preceding census. It fur- her. says no county can have more han one senator, and no county can be. divided to make a senatorial dis- rlct. ' By reason of the distribution of he population and the provisions of he constitution It is impossible that .11 districts. shall have the same population, but the aim should be to secure as even a distribution as possible. Why Bill' Was Best. The population of the state is 2,,70,939, Divided by 50 the number of 'senators and districts would,' if qually divided, give a senator 49,420 constituents. There are seven pounties with a population greater than 49,420, and .hese are therefore each entitled to L senator. , ,The population of the seven counties is 634,422. Subtract- ng this number from the population of the state leaves 1,836,617 to be divided by'trie 43 remaining districts which gives 42,710, the number the districts would have U the population could be equally distributed. It ie! not my purpose to discredit the authors of House Files 11, 64, and 171, but the only way to point out the virtues of my 'bill, which is still -when he H. F,. 366, is to compare it with the others. This comparison follows.
