IOWA PAGE SENIORS If the state of Iowa is to have a comptroller of Its finances a comptroller vested with extraordinary and almost dictatorial powers, and if that comptroller >s to be a democrat, we know of no one in the state who will be able to fill the post with better whom Governor Just appointed. 'Herring has If Mr. Murtagh turns out to be a despot, in the handling of the funds of the state, we are sure he will prove to be a benevolent despot, and that he will conduct the office with fairness to all concerned, and Without favor, political or otherwise. However, we remain of the opinion that the office of comptroller for the state of Iowa was a needless wheel attached to the machinery of state government.

Margaret is employed at the telephone office, Mason City, but i» having a two weeks vaca- The Advance does not neces- Jal, approve what Is sold, except that the remarks concerning Mr. Murtngli arc endorsed. there was no occasion for such a radical departure from the long established system of state government, which has kept the control of state finances within, the realms of constitutional 'limitations, and in the hands of the state legislature, and the state auditor and state treasurer, constitutional officers. 'All the duties devolving upon the comptroller, as we understand the new law, have in the past devolved upon the auditor of state and the treasurer of state. The auditor of state has kept an account with every office and department of the state, as well as with all legislative funds and accounts. He has also kept a close account with the treasurer of state, and has kept in constant contact with the treasurer in frequent balances and settlements. 'For 75 years of statehood this method of handling the financial accounts of the state has proven successful and satisfactory. For 7« years the constitution of the state has been strictly observed, the legislatures have conducted their business of making laws and appropriations for state government, and the constitutional officers of the state have devoted themselves to the execution of those laws, and the handling of those appropriations. No scandal has attached to either the auditor's or the treasurer's office during all that time, In the handling of the state's financial affairs, as provided for by the various general assemblies. For 75 years of our statehood we have adhered strictly to the constitutional provision that the executive, the Judicial and the legislative powers of the state must be free and Independent of each other. Now we are departing from that constitutional inhibition. The door has been opened by the passage of the state comptroller bill, and If those outsiders, non-residents of the state, who have come here to set up a new and largely theoretical system of state government, have their way, we will undoubtedly find the door not only ajar, but it will be pried wide open to let all fads and fancies drive through Just like that -famed "twenty mule team" of the borax corporation. It is too bad, before the present system of state government is disorganized and destroyed, that we do not have some way in which the matter of the constitutionality of such acts as the comptroller bill can be taken to the supreme court lor that body's interpretation. (Either something of that kind should be done, or else our entire constitution should be repealed. It seems to matter very little to most of us, anyhow. ;NO Ledyard, May 9—Commencement exercises will be held this week Thursday evening, and following is the program: processional, Mrs. V* A.
