ALGONA, IOWA, THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 4,1937 Gillette, Kohlhaas on Important Committees KOSSUTOMAN IS ON LIQUOR CONTROLGROUP Gillette Is Named To Important Agriculture Assignment Both Senator Lester Gillette of Fostoria, and Phil Kohlhaas, Kossuth county representative in the state legislature, have been named to important positions on various committees in the present session of the legislature. Both of them are serving their first ten..* in their respective positions, but not unacquainted with the various activities in which they will be tiking a cpecial interest on committees. Gillette A Fanner Senator Gillette is himself a well known farmer near Spirit Lake. He graduated from Iowa State College, and over and above that, has made a real success of his chosen field of work. Hi* committee appointments are: Agriculture, Board of Control and Public Welfare, Claims, Drainage, Public Buildings and Land, Public Libraries, State Planning and Ways and Means. Representative Kohlhaas, who needs no introduction to Kossuth folks, has been appointed to the following committees: Appropriations, Chairman of Building and Loan. Cities and Towns, Constitutional Amendments, County and Township Organisation, Insurance, Judiciary, Liquor Control and Motor Vehicles and Transportation. In Liquor Arena Kohlhaas, as a member of the Liquor Control committee, will be and Is in the thick of the battle between wets who want liquor sold by the drink, and drys who want local option rights or no liquor at all if possible. Gillette's assignment to the State Planning Committee may develop into an out-of-the-ordinary task, as state planning on a long-time basis Is one of the present trends throughout the state. Representative Alex Bonnstetter was chairman of the appropriation committee in his last term in the legislature, and Kohlhaas has also been appointed to that committee, so Kossuth is still on the map in one of the most vital of committees. - We call attention to our special weekly news letters, found on the editorial page, which summarizes the week's activity of the legislature.
