Frank Pelzer -R., of the Cass-Shelby district, said: I think this pension cra/e has become ii statewide racket. The senator understated the case, it has become a national racket. (Meaning all the varied movements for pensions.) The teachers did a good pressure job this bill. But before going farther let us define "the teachers." The term, for the purposes of this mention, doesn't include rural teachers. They had little or nothing to do with it. It included few teachers in town and city; that is, few who were heart and soul for it. No doubt the town and city teachers voted for it in teachers' conventions. But anybody knows how that^s. When We are all good fellows together we vote for whatever the leaders (who are, of course in dead earnest) put before us. As everybody knows, the rural and town and nity teachers are mainly young women—probably nine-tenths of them, or more. Few of them plan to, or ever do, make teaching a c.. reer. They teach a while, then marry and via their, husbands enter the tax-paying class- something they don't think of when they vote for what the leaders Want. If memory is not mistaken the democratic state platforms used to promise civil service in the same way that the 1938 republican platform did; but it seems to have been lip service only, for the democrats did not carry out theii pledges when they succeeded to office. It looks now as if the republicans will play the same trick, for the present session is about to end, and no civil service law has been enacted. Governor Wilson will have served a full term before the legislature meets again. Let the Governor Appoint State Officials For many years students of state government have been dissatisfied with the way statehouse officials in Iowa are chosen. They are elected, but as a rule the voters do not know enough about candidates to make an intelligent choice. Two ways out have been suggested, and both lave merit. One is to take candidacies out of the primaries and restore them to party state conventions. Delegates to the state conven- ions usually know something about the candidates, or if not can find out on the ground. Phey would at least know what they were do- this Is. ANT) OLKAIIOMA ED crashes through with a triple pick-up from the Bridgeport Bulletii (presumably in Oklahoma) to-wit: "The old negro mammy was talking to her boy. "Lawd, yo' sho' is an ornery niggah! Just like yo' pa. I sho' is glad I didn't marry that man'." "Teacher—"Can any of you girls tell me what a mandate Is?' "Grace—'Yes, teacher, an appointment with a gentleman'." "When God created man He gave him two ends—one to sit on, and one to think with. Every since then man's success or failure has been dependent on the one he used the most. It has always been and now is the case 'heads you win—tails you lose.'" It is the comparatively few career teachers who seek pensions. They are the better pa'd teachers. In the senate debate it was said that the average Iowa teacher gets $800 to $900 a year. Apparently no one thought to inquire whether that average was arrived nt by including non-career teachers, but the chances are it was. The figures for the career teachers alone would be a lot higher. But no matter. To many thousands of families — "families," mind you — the $SOO to $900 average seems pretty good—it's more than they get. Returning to the "good pressure job" the teachers (always meaning the career teachers) did on this bill— They agitated prior to two years ago. Then, in the legislature of 1937 they introduced their bill. They were beaten, but they didn't give up. They came back for this session. They were well organized. They buttonholed legislators. Now they have put it over in the Senate, and the battle front moves to the House. In the Senate the bill went through by a vote of 38-8, with four absent or not voting. iSenator Gillette, of this district, was among the senators who voted to saddle this new pension on taxpayers. To make the pill palatable the teachers proposed to pay part of the cost themselves. They wanted a 50-50 deal, the taxpayers (who already pay their salaries) contributing half. But by some ciueer quirk the Senate, otherwise happily complaisant, balked on that and made it a one to two deal. Generously they let the taxpayers off with only one part. (But never -mind. Later on the teachers can have all their contribution scrapped and mulct the state for 100 per cent!) But this year and next the state $1,250,000; then a million a year for ng. The objection to this method, is, of course he same that led to the adoption of the wry system many years ago. Politics would overn the choice and trading would be the ule. Real choice would be accidental. The other method would be to let the gov- rnor name the statehouse officials in the line way that the president names the cabinet. This would not be as revolutionary as may at first sight appear, for the governor already names many boards whose duties are no less important than those of statehouse officials.

ALL OVER IOWA THE MOVIES By T. H. C. SPRING PETER— As Wallaces' Farmer, which favors this Plan, points out, the governor now unjustly gets the blame for whatever these officials do that the public does not approve, but he is helpless because he cannot remove unsatisfactory elected officials. Since he gets the blame he ought to be able to name the officials. Besides, it stands to reason that any governor can do a better job if he can depend on the help of department heads with a definitely worldly wise flair as follows: "I have done a little fishing, not much— > just enough to know that one kind of bait will catch one kind of fish and another kind of bait will catch another kind of fish. As a general rule I can tell from the kind of bait the girl is using what kind of a poor fish she is angling for." "It is pathetic when girls will be boys. They fail as girls and make themselves ridiculous as boys." The Algouian's letter also said: "One gets not only 'an eye opened' but the whole face opened four or five times in a while here." picture—it's simply the way this reviewer is feeling. Frankly, I'm a little bit discouraged this week. Things are so frightfully quiet and peaceful.

Instantly there was a great verbal uproar, with everybody putting in their nickel's worth. About half the letters defended the department, saying that reviews were intelligent and read- worthy; the rest, threw stink- bombs all over the luckless critic, saying his reviews were lousy, terrible, disgusting. Said the "Ed" — "All letters will be turned over to the cinema department for thoughtful reflection"— or words to that effect. And so it goes. Even the big- timers need the inspiration of reader-comment. Enjoyment of the (movies is so much a matter of personal feelings that it is rare indeed that the same picture appeals to all alike'. Sometimes you are tired, and a show relaxes "nerves-on-. edge" and soothes tired minds. To such, the picture is just a means to an end and criticism is futile. You like the picture because it does what you want it to do. At other times, slightly irritable and out of sorts, the experience has an entirely different effect. Things get on your nerves.

Daddy was weary and shabby too, But oh, the print of her little shoe And the welcoming of her tiny hands Made him monarch of richer lands Than ever were—and night by night The little game was their dear delight. Night by night—till the one when Death Snatched her up on a laughing breath. A staggering car that rocked and reared Free of a lad's light hand that steeredi And crushed her lifeless before their eyes, So little, so eager, so sweet and wise. Three souls cry out in the little town When darkness hovers and settles down, A man who plods from his day's work home Remembering how he used to come, A woman who listens with straining ears And fights the silence with bitter tears, And a lad with a haggard brow who sees A baby's ghost in the poplar trees. ***** A3TD SO IT'S NEARLY the end of the column, and not much work. All that remains is the weekly dig at Hitler, state politics, etc.— the usual grist of the mill of near-anger. Then along comes a critic, damning with faint praise, a production that helped you forget your troubles and you say to yourself, with justice, "what right has he got to call this show lousy when it seemed like such a pleasant little diversion." That is where you should come in with your reader-comment. Tell the old crab just how you feel about him and don't think I won't appreciate it.
