Actively supported all measures for the betterment of Agriculture such as Grain Tax Exemption Bill, Rural Libraries Hill, Dairy Advertising Bill, Bang's Disease Control Bill, etc. "2. In keeping with his pledges of two years ago he introduced 13 bills; engineered H through the House, 7 through the Senate, and 7 are now a part of the Laws of Iowa. !J. At the request of the members of the Senate, he managed or effectively assisted in the management of numerous Senate Bills on the House Floor. Every bill so handled became law. a. One of those bills (The Court Procedure Bill) is of extreme importance to the people of Iowa. It comp letely does away with our long outmoded legal procedure and substitutes a speedy competent method of obtaining justice. Here's what the Iowa News Bulletin said with reference to the handling of this bill: "The difficult job of managing the bill on the floor of the House was in the competent hands of Representative Curtis Gregory of Adel . . . Gregory had the active assistance of such legislative leaders as Leo Hough, Martin Van Osterhart, Theo. Hutchison ..." 4. He was instrumental in securing the passage of the long neglected Senatorial Itedistricting Bill, which as amended gives Kossuth connty the representation in the State Senate to which it is entitled. 5. No rabid partisan, Mr. Hutchison through hard work gave the people of the largest county in the State of Iowa the kind of representation to which they are entitled. a. At the close of the last session of the Iowa Legislature here is what the Davenport Democrat and Leader said in reviewing the Session: "Adjournment Day Talk singled out Representative T. C. Hutchison R. (Al- goua) and Harold P. Nelson (Sioux City) as among the more outstanding new members of the lower house." This advertisement paid for by friends of Theo. C. Hutchison, who believe his record oi effective representation in the state legislature for agriculture and small business entitles him to a second term. He will not be a candidate for a third term.
