A REORGANIZED STATE GOVERNMENT The state legislature is to be asked to consider laws which would make legal a revision of several units of the present State of Iowa government. In general the bills call for a stats department of public safety consolidating the state highway patrol and police powers and various Inspection duties; a state department of public welfare consolidating the duties of state relief agencies, the board of control of state institutions and the board of parole; a county department of public welfare and similar purposes; a state purchasing department which would include everything but highway construction projects; a county purchasing department of a similar nature, connected with the county auditor's office. The principle of the moves are all sound, namely to consolidate and centralize the authority and responsibility in a definite place, and to eliminate needless overlapping of oSices. The danger, on the other hand, lies in erecting more political plums for friends of the party in power, whichever it is. at the expense of the taxpayer. Governor Herring, however, has flatly declared that the proposals, if invoked, will mean a cut of several hundred state employees, and a saving for the taxpayers, to say nothing of greater efficiency. It seems to us that the move is in the right direction. Because a state or national government has operated for 75 years with one setup is no reason to believe it can continue for another 75 years, at least in a period of changing conditions. The state can always be more efficiently and economically operated. K depends on the honesty of the administration, and the calibre of the men in public office. Governor Herring's proposals have a ring of sincerity, and his reorganization plans are based on good, common horse-sense. Why should we have four or five sets of officers running around the state on public funds, when one set could do the work of five, has always been a mystery. Nothing has ever been done about it because no one had the courage to attempt to modernize the government, and because officials hesitated to lop off jobs which could be used to recompense deserving party woric- ers. The rank and file of the State of Iowa should be solidly behind any movement which will improve government, and any movement which will cut off the dead and useless limbs, the heritage of the past. "CRACKING DOWN" ON FOOTBALL "Jess Seein' Things," who writes a snappy column in the North Kossuth Record, makes some broad statements in an article in the Nov. 21 issue of the publication, regarding the conduct of studente and alumni at the recent homecoming game at Iowa City. The football season is at a close, and controversy over the subject Is useless. It seems that liquor, either under prohibition or state regulation, la always a subject for debate. Folks can usually interpret things the way they want, to, including the conduct of people around them. "Jess Seein' Things'', with his eyes wide open, saw everybody drunk. One fact that we wish to point out la that our unknown contemporary did go to the game himself, however, so his rather sarcastic tone about football games cannot be taken very seriously, else why did he himself attend? There's a wallop to seeing a good football game; it's a builder upper. There's an air and spirit, that you cannot find anywhere else, in either amateur or professional sport. The alumni who return annually do so in an effort to relive for a few hours some of the most pleasant years of their lives. It is an occasion of gaiety and carefree pleasure. All we could sug^u for "Jess Seein' Things' 1 Is that next year perhaps lie ought to stay home and read "Pil Brim's Progress." IIAllU TO UNDERSTAND At a recent National Farmers' Union m-'eung held in Sioux FaU-s, South Dakctu, the boys decided that the national capital was too far east and "unless we get a MIUUTC: deal in Washington, perhaps it would be bt.a to move the national capi'.al to the 1 ' If Uie organization ;houltl .succeed in moving the cupjtal, we oiler Algona as an excillent, site.
