Political and Otherwise of State Interest "DICK" HAS GOOD PLAN. Senator-elect Dickinson Is and el- vays has been interested In the wel- 'are of Iowa. By the reapportionment }f congressmen, Iowa will lose two IOWA BOUND TO WIN. Iowa is coming out of the recent d presslon In fine shape. Merchants r port good business and there is mlgh little unemployment in the state, ou York, California and a other states will gain. New number o Under the Constitution, the number of congressmen from each state depends upon the population. In enumerating the population, aliens, men and women, who are not citizens, are counted. Thii gives foreigners as much power In determining the number of congressmen from the state as the citizens and tax payers have. New York, California and the other states with Industrial centers have a large foreign population who are usually employed in the factories. Iowa and most of the states throughout the middle west have few aliens who have no vote. Consequently it is the latter states that suffer by the present apportionment plan, and the states with the large numbers of aliens have the largest number and majority of members in the house. Senator-elect Dickinson will endeavor to have the rules changed so that aliens will not be counted in the census, which determines the apportion- men of congressmen. Iowa has for many years had eleven congressmen. The new apportionment gives the state but nine. Congressmen are expecte to represent the citizens of their dis trlct as well as the whole state. Wit nine votes instead of eleven in th national house,_ of representatives Iowa will not have the voice she ha had and the interests of the stat will no doubt suffer. side of some of the larger cities. Why shouldn't Iowa be prosperous. We have the highest class of citizenship, honorable, enlightened and ambitious. We have better soil, better farms and the best climate for growing crops of any state In the union. Iowa never knows a crop failure. Last season's drouth shortened some crops but what we raised was of the best quality. When the people of Iowa realize these facts and that an Investment in lowo soil is the best in the world they will cease sending money east and invest it at home, where they can watch it grow and bring returns. The day is not far distant when the people's money will be brought back from the east and Iowa will continue to develop. There Is no place in God's green earth as good as Iowa and the people who have the privilege of liv- ng in this wonderful state may well >e classed among God's chosen people. : (By J. W. December 1.— Des Moines, Iowa, Bankers in ten mid-western have formed the Interstate Bank Insurance and Protective Committee of which C. C. Jacobsen of Sioux City president of the Iowa Bankers' Association, is president. The object of the organization Is to formulate plans for the suppression of bank banditry Mr. Jacobsen announces that at the initial meeting in Minneapolis resolutions were passed proposing fourteen major recommendations for the elimination and punishment of bank robbers and criminals in general. President Jacobsen said that most of the recommendations are based upon the experience of various individual states providing penalties for major crimes, and uniform methods of dealing with bank robbery expeditlously and severely are expected to act as a strong deterrent in this area. The death penalty for the day light bank robber was not considered too severe, he said, in view of the utter disregard which the bank robber shows for the lives and property of bankers, bank customers, bystanders and law enforcemnt officers. Definite action on the proposals contained in the resolutions will be OTHER EDITORS REGISTERING YOUR CAR. December is the month in which to register your automobile and receive your 1931 license plates. If 'you wal until after January 1, you will be obliged to pay a penalty. There aie about 7763 automobiles in Kossuth county and the county treasurer's office will be a busy place. There will but twenty-six days in which to register these cars which means an average of nearly three hundred cars a day Many wait until the last minute when there is a grand rush and It means standing In line for several hours or •waiting until after January first and pay the penalty. If you can not call at the county treasurer's office mail your automobile registration slip for 1930 with the license fee and you will receive credit and the number plates will be mailed to you as early as possible. This should be done before January 1. News and Comment, Six hours work, eight hours pay. We can't see how that will help the unemployed. There are a lot of noisy fellows who criticize congress and never have a sensible remedy. It's pretty hard to make a man who knows he Is broke, believe we are having prosperity. The man who has a good job this winter certainly has a lot for which to be thankful. President Hoover says we do not need new laws as much as we need enforcement of the laws we now have. Now if congress will forget politics for a time and unite on passing laws for the good of the nation everybody will be benefltted. With the increased number of democrats in the Iowa assembly, republicans will have a struggle to save the nine districts to be established. There seems to be too much of everything raised by the farmer and not enough of the other things of life from the appearance of the markets. Everybody thought Will Hays would fall for one of Mack Bennett's bathing beauties in California, but instead of (hut he married a Maryland widow. No body is more criticized than the farm obard. Here we have representatives of agriculture who are doing their best to solve the problem, if they can't do it, who can? An exchange tells of a bachelor in Nebraska who will probably never wed. His weetheart will not marry him while he is drunk and when he is sober he does not want to marry. And now a congressman proposes a law for the nation to adopt the metric system. It will take a long time for old timers to learn to talk In meters liters and so forth instead of Inches, feet and quarts. Everybody is talking tax reduction, income tax and other proposed changes in our tax laws. The fact remains that we are spending a lot of money }n Iowa and Iowa people will pay the bill, it not in one way, then another Cut down expenditures and then talk tax reduction. IS THE PARTY "SACROSANT." Swea City Herald: Senator Brookhart has again aroused the ire of the tory country editors of Iowa by threatening to bolt the republican party if it falls to sponsor a legislative program that will meet the needs 01 the times. He has been called everything from an imbecile to a traitor. Those who look with friendly amusement upon the actions of the doughty senior senator are called populists, socialists, bolsheviks and the puritanical scribes. what not by Senator Brookhart appears to have a distinct flan- for publicity. It may be that he exercises consummate shrewdness when he pokes his journalistic critics. At any rate, his system has worked in previous campaigns. Soundly denounced by the press, he has kept on garnering the votes. It may be right now he Is laying the foundation for another successful campaign two years hence. Getting back to the present argument, what good reasons have the tory editors for supporting the belief that :he republican party is sacrosant? Has lot enough happened lately to give •ise to the belief that maybe some- ;hing is wrong with the party? May>e Senator Brookhart is more right .han wrong. The editors should prove their case. They should load their ;uns before they start shooting. "DAN" MUST MAKE GOOD. Mason City Gazette: Don't envy Dan Turner his job as he steps into the ;overnor's office. He has been so many things to so many persons it vouldn't be possible for a young god, ay nothing of an ordinary human be- ng, to satisfy all of the divergent de- nands upon him. From the start of the campaign, cer- aln leaders of business in Iowa gum- hoed about the state, giving assurance 0 wealth that it had nothing to fear. Isn't he one of the richest men in owa himself?" they'd suggest as a fin- 1 assurance that he meant no harm vhen he pleaded for a state income ax. Then there was the "ultra-progres- ive" spokesman for Turner, typified y Senator George Patterson, who as- ured his followers that Turner would e for anything which would lift the urden from the "common man" and mt it on the "bloated plutocrat." The result was that Dan Turner was taken at the next meeting of the interstate committee, which will meet in Des Moines, between now and January 1, 1931. There have been twenty-one daylight bank robberies in Iowa since January 1st and fifteen of the participants are already In the penitentiary, which Is not a bad record. The amount of money secured was around $100,000. Other states In the group recently organized have had experiences with daylight robberies slrhila to what have transpired in Iowa. State Senate Appointments. Senator C. A. Benson, of Clayto: county in the last session of the legis lature, chairman of the sifting com mittee hi the senate, has been name by Lieutenant Governor MacFarlane chairman of the senate caucus com mittee for the 4th general assembly and has named a committee of senat members to serve on the patronagi committee. Those named who will re commend the appointive officials o the senate are Senator O. P. Bennet of Mapleton, J. H. Hager of Waufcon C. L. Rigby of Stanwood, George A Wilson of Des Moines, T. E. Moen o Inwood, Frank Ickis of Creston and A V. Blackford of Bonaparte. Senator Benson, it Is understood, will be a candidate for president pro tem of the senate, a position held in the last two sessions by Senator Frank Shane, of Ottumwa, who was defeated for reelection at the late election. If Senator Benson is elected president pro tem, his elevation will leave the chairmanship of the committee on agriculture vacant. Senator Benson was a candidate for the nomination for congressman from the Fourth district in the June primaries, making the race against Gilbert Haugen who won the nomination. Industrial Plants Use Iowa Coal. Increased use of Iowa Coal In in- ;r 1.— bly. L. B. Forsling of Woodbury, has staftes the distinction of outdistancing all of the other aspirants when contlnunity of service is considered. He was first elected and in 1920 and now is a flfth- termer. His election to the legislature In five consecutive elections is the best proof of his popularity, his legislative record being a winning platform. Compulsory Military Training:. Among the leaders of the opponents of compulsory miltary training at the State University at Iowa City and Iowa State College at Ames are the various units of the parent-teachers' associations throughout the state. The state board of education has been Implored to make such training optional rather than compulsory. The women folks argue, as do a large number of men that the mere fact of the compulsory feature is enough to condemn the principle as unsound, because people do not take kindly to the compulsory Idea In making up their views on military procedure. Glenn A. Kenderdine, of Iowa City, in a recent contribution, propounds this question: Why not ask the state board of education just what sort of a contract exists between the state schools and the military department of the United States, with regard to advanced military training; whether or not a stud- who has entered upon the advanced course and afterwards changes his mind, for any reason whatsoever, is debarred because of that, from going ahead with his scholastic pursuits? He concludes his plea with the the suggestion that " it is time for all opponents of compulsory militarism in our state supported schools to get in touch with their legislators and demand that a bill be passed eliminating the compulsory feature, and making it purely optional to the student body whether or not the course shall be taken." The agitation from a multiplicity of sources clearly indicates that the 44th general assembly will have the problem before it. Clubs Ask for Legislation. The Iowa Federation of Women's Clubs will support a bill to prohibit spur-of-the-moment marriages and will sponsor another to bring Iowa into line with other states in its divorce laws during the Iowa legislature's term this winter. In discussing the matrimonial reform Idea as advanced by the women organizations, E. K. Pitman of Northwood, Worth county, says that "in 1927 California adopted a law requiring that all persons proposing ;o marry publish a notice to that effect for three days preceding the date of the ceremony. During the three rears that the law has been in force >400 couples have 'backed out' after making the decision to double up. It eems to have kept a lot of people from exemplifying the old saying of 'marry n haste and repent at leisure.' Th ;alifornia law was aimed at 'gin' wee ings—hasty marriages when hot Tide and groom were under the in IlKpU It III III U NEW CHEVROLET SIX Strikingly beautiful, fleet and smart — a masterpiece of Fisher styling dustrial plants of the state has been recorded during the last few months, according to an announcement released by Hugh W. Lundy, secretary of the Iowa Coal Institute. "Iowa Indus tries are turning to the use of Iowa mined coal in large numbers,*' Mr Lundy reported. "New methods o mining, grading and sorting Iowa coa have contributed greatly to the increase. Another contributing economic factor has been the short haul between mine and Industrial consumer." Escape of Iowa from the more serious aspects of the industrial depression current in the eastern part of the country was largely attributed by Mr. Lundy to the economy of operation of industrial plants which use Iowa coal "Because operating expenses have been lowered," he said, "many of Iowa's industrial plants have been able to continue normal or nearly normal production in the face of economic depression. This has not only afforded employment to thousands in these industrial plants, but has been a great boon to hundreds of Iowa miners who are employed in Iowa's second largest industry." Speakership Race. Something out of the ordinary has resulted since it has been officially declared that 38 democrats were chosen members of the house of representa- ives at the late election, and that is Never has the superiority of Body by Fisher been more strikingly exemplified than In the Bigger and Better Chevrolet Six! With the added advantage of a lengthened whcclhnsc, Fisher designers have achieved hi the new Chevrolet an Impressive degree of smartness, comfort and luxury. Inside and out, scores of refinements stamp this car as a masterpiece of modem conchwork. Radiator, headlamps and tie-bar form an unusually attractive and distinctive ensemble. Mouldings sweep back in an unbroken lino to blend with the smart new body contours. And new color combinations lend a new individual- ity. Interiors, too, are exceptional. The new mohair and broadcloth upholstery is smartly tailored. Scats are wider and more luxuriously cushioned. A deeper windshield and wider windows give better vision. And beautiful new modern fittings- lend a final note of charm. Many mechanical improvements- are also evident hi this Bigger and Better Six. Among these area stronger frame; easier steering) a more durable clutch; a quieter,, smoother transmission; and important engine refinements. The Bigger and Better Chevrolet Six is now on display.

Emmetsburg Democrat: Congressman Dickinson has recommended Mrs. Tena Healy for postmaster at Britt. She is the wife of E. P. Healy, who was en- fiaged in the banking business at that place for a number of years. She is said to be a very capable lady and Ls earning a livelihood for herself and her husband who lost his eyesight .some time ago. But a number of the women's organizations in the community are up in arms against her and they are petitioning our congressman to withdraw hit; recommendation. The politicians, including the county chairman, are backing Mr. Dickinson. Because of this, Mrs. Healy will unquestionably receive her commission. The women are all right to carry on campaign work and to spread necessary propaganda. Many of them do this unknowingly. However, when the fat, juicy plums are to be distributed the gentlemen are given an overwhelming majority of the appointments and in the elections they are granted first honors. This was clearly shown in the case of Mrs. Ruth Hanna McCormick, who recently spent nearly a million dollars in the Illinois senatorial campaign but was beaten two to one by Ham Lewis. The Democrat ventures he will seek the speakership. It has been many years since the democrats had a sufficient representation in the house to prompt such a venture, not since 1912. The aspirant at the coining session is Qtha D. Wearin, of Mills county, who has won two elections in a strong republican county. In the 43d he was the youngest member of that body, being only 26 at the time he was elected. Mr. Wearin made a tour of Europe a few years ago and contributed a series of articles descriptive of his observations to a number of Iowa newspapers. Last summer he made a tour of Mexico. He is an author and lecturer of no mean repute. Seven Republicans for Position. Seven republicans are seeking the post, including J. H. Johnson of Marion county, incumbent; L. B. Forsling of Woodbury county; Leonard Simmer of Wapello; Francis Johnson of Dickinson county; Frank Hollingsworth of Boone county; S. R. Torcgson of Worth county, and Reyburn Rutledge of Webster county. J. H. Johnson, of Marion, was speaker ol the 43 general assem- luence of intoxicating liquor." Human Interest Portrayal of Hoover. F. E. Corbln. of West Branch, th irthplace of President Hoover, give in brief a birdseye view of Iowa's not ed son when he recites the following historical tribute: Just forty-five year ago Herbert Hoover left West Branch for the distant west, Oregon, going in company with Mr. and Mrs. O. T Hammill, who left their home here in hopes of finding better health for Mr Hammill on the Pacific coast. The Local Record of that week states thai Mr. and Mrs. O. T. Hammill and Bertie Hoover started Tuesday on their long journey to western Oregon. That was Tuesday, November 10, 1885. For the expenses of this momentous trip Hoover's guardian, Lawrie Taum wrote in the records that he allowed the sum of $33.13 for Berte's expenses to 'travel to his uncle, Dr. H. John Minthorn, at Newburg, Oregon. That was the end df the first chapter in the eleven year old boy's career, those years when he knew the ties of home, ihe loss of both parents, the companionship of his boyish playmates and he fun of roaming the fields and streams—a far cry from the Rapidan. It marked also the beginning of a new chapter wherein Fate's shuttlecock :ossed Herbert Hoover east and west, around the world, hither and yon, in a colorful career unparallelled by any other Iowa youth. Assessors Have More Duties The state board of assessment and •eview, through its chairman, Louis 3ook, announces that every assessor will be required to make use of what s termed a data sheet "The adoption of the data sheets," the state official said, "will make it possible to get a careful, exact, scientific appraisal of property in the state." The day s gone when the assessor knew all the property in his district and could ap- )raise it with a glance. For farms nd rural property the data sheets will 1st a description including the follow- ng points: distance to market, dis- ance to school, value of land in the mmediate vicinity, character of land, drainage, crops, fences, water supply, dwelling and vecapulatlon. For urban jroperties the assessor will be required o get the following information: type of building, age, size, basement, roof, icat, condition, improvements, addl- ions, porches, garage, barn and mach- nery. The data sheets will also be used for reference in case of exemp- ion of assessments. not takr; a backward step in the recommendation made at Britt. TEXAS AND ILLINOIS. Emrnetsburg Democrat: Governor Dan Moody of Texas says that if he were chief executive of Illinois, he would put Chicago under martial law and drive out the notorious gangsters. While the Chicago Dally Tribune, the "world's greatest newspaper," Is not altogether proud of the municipal record of its homii city it comes back at the Texas statesman in a manner that Is as amusing as it is forceful. The Tribune says that when the Texas freemen are not burning Jails to execute the writs of Judge Lynch on prisoners who have not had trials and that when Ma Ferguson is not working her way in through the kitchen door and Pa Ferguson through the coal hole, they may be able to find a few spare moments to consider their own perplexing domestic problems in Tex- the prediction tliat Mr. Dickinson will | as.

M.-R. Washington, D. C., December 3.— Two statements made, one by a democratic senator and the other by a republican representative, suggested that ;he truce between the two parties jn the short session of congress would not be realized with much effect. Senator Robinson of Arkansas, democratic floor leader and one of the seven signers of the democratic ante-election •tatement promising cooperation with he administration on economic ques- ions and unemployment, returned to Washington voicing assurance that he and his party would not indulge in a filibuster on appropriation bills to orce an extra session. But he made t clear that cooperation on legisla- ion did not mean approval of all mea- ure submitted by the administration. iVhile he held that an extra session as not desirable, he said It was too arly to say whether one could be voided. * * * Mr. Robinson takes the position that othing can be gained by forcing a peclal session. Partisan matters, he elleves, would probably meet with a residential veto If there was any de- crmination now that an extra session unavoidable. Such a determination Iso would inevitably result in the 1 ciaif session • of the l(ew:-c(ongress, control of which Is uncertain. * • * President Hoover has' added his voice to the general administration chorus against dipping into the debt retirement funds in order to provide continuance of the one per cent cut on corporate and personal taxes voted by congress last winter as an emergency relief expedient. As Secretary Mellon, Senators Smoot (R., Utah) and Reed OR., P.) of the senate finance committee, as well as several leading democrats, including Senator Glass of Virginia, had already negatived the idea of using debt retirement funds to extend the tax cut-it was certain that Mr. Hoover would disapprove. * • * When young Phil LaFollette moves into the Wisconsin governor's mansion at Madison next month and takes with him his wife and five-year-old son, it will be the first time the executive establishment will have known the footsteps of a youngster since Phil himself and his brother, now Senator "Bob" LaFollette, romped around the place as kids. Their father, "Fighting Bob" was governor then—more ;han a quarter of a century ago. « « * One of Senator George H. Moses' 'sons of wild jackasses" was asked the other day what he thought about an extra session of congress. "Once upon a 'time," he replied, "my sainted father, who was an old-time western politician, told me he favored a law where)y our state legislature should meet only once in ten years, and that its >ole business, when it did meet, should be to repeal any and all legislation massed by the preceding legislatures." * * * Secretary Mellon came downstairs -.. or such subterfuges" as the Hoover farm relief plan, and that democratic 'senators would, by no means, confirm "unfit" officials, merely because they had been named by Mr. Hoover.

He also plans to seek action on his bill to reduce working hours of postal and other government workers from 48 to 44 hours a week. As ranking majority members of the house post office committee he plans to oppose Postmaster General Brown's proposal for 2 & -cent letter postage. * * * The diplomacy with "which Dwight W. Morrow, senator-elect from New Jersey and former ambassador to Mexico discharged his ambassadorial duties while at Mexico City was revealed in an Incident related by Mrs. Morrow in an after-luncheon talk before the Women's City Club of New York. In. writing a children's book, "The Painted Pig," around he story of a little Mexican girl, Mrs. Morrow had penned a sentence about a toy general, •Generals are brittle and easily broken," but, she said, Ambassador Morrow inserted the word "glass", making ;he sentence read: "Glass generals are brittle and easily broken," to remove any political significance that might be read into the sentence. ostponement of action of measures the other night 1 torn the top floor of hich he says ought to be disposed of t the coming session.

The latter contingency would force President Hoover to call a special session of the new anti-administration congress before July I, when the fiscal year ends. plans of congressional administration leaders to restrict the legislative short session to appropriation and emergency measures are confronted by a wide range of pressing proposals. As President Hoover was drafting his message to congress studies went forward on Capitol Hill of suggestions for unemployment, drought relief, railroad-holding company and law enforcement legislation.

"I think that most important and most wonderful thing that comes from girl scouting Is friendliness," Mrs. Hoover said. "It gives this generation of girls an opportunity to get into closer contact and cooperation with the generation that has Just gone before." * * • At a dinner of the Democratic Women's Lnucheon club at the Elks' dub in Newark, New Jersey, Jouett Bhouse, chairman of the Dernoeraittc National Committee's executive' comittee declared that democrats of the Seventy- second congress were pledged to public service "In the broadest sense" and would in no way obstruct republican measures for the public good or for the support of the government.
