(By Representative A. H. Bomutetter). State House, January 16, 1931. Dear Editor: Complying with your request in which I was asked to state my views on matters as they come up in the house during the present session, I submit the following: As you all know, the republicans had a hard fight in making their selection "or a speaker and there are still a few sore spots in their ranks at the pre- ent time. Congests Are Settled. The first question of any Importance hat came before our branch of the ssembly related to the seating of the men against whom contests had been lied. This matter was considered on Monday morning, January 12. It was ecided b« the members to seat pitto from Osceola and Berry from Monroe bending the outcome of the contest Berry is the oldest member In the house, being seventy-three years o age. He served in the 39th, 40, 41, 42 and 43rd general assemblies. In the primaries, he was defeated by his republican opponent by 17 votes, so he appeared In the general election on the independent ticket and apparently won by a few votes. Mr. Berry is a fine and able gentleman. The other two men who were involved In contests are Fabritz from Wapello and Gallagher from Iowa You perhaps remember that in the general election, Pabritz won by four votes. Nine days later it was discovered that there were some ninety uncounted absent voters' ballots found in the auditor's office. A few of the election boards of the various precincts in the county reconvened to act on said ballots belonging to their respective perclncts. Others refused to do so and as the matter now stands, Pab- ritz Is still leading by eleven votes. The Gallagher contest was waged on a bribery charge actuated by the friends of Mr. Gallagher's opponent because Gallagher stated In the campaign, that he would not take expense money. This contest was decided yesterday. The matter was placed in the hands of a committee of five members, three republicans and two democrats. After an extensive Investigation, the committee unanimously reported to Beat Mr. Gallagher. Briefly stating their reason for said recommendation, they held that the acceptance of expeVise money was not obligatory and this being the case, bribery was entirely out of the quetsion. After the report was submitted to the house, every member voted to sustain the recommendation of the committee. The other contests will be taken up next week. Extravagance in Clerks. It is generally understood that every two house members are entitled to one clerk and with a few exceptions this Is sufficient. The patronage committee allowed the house sixty-five clerks. I cannot understand where work will be found for all these girls and you can imagine our surprise when Wednesday morning, January 14, Representative Simmers of Wapello offered a resolution to empower the patronage committee to hire twenty additional clerks. Many of the members feel that this additional help is absolutely unnecessary and It is whispered that heretofore political obligations were 'factors that contributed to this unnecessary expense. During the debate on the question the following facts were brought out: 1. The population of Iowa ranks 17th of all the states In the Union. 2. The number of members in the assembly of Iowa ranked 18th in 1929. 3. Iowa had 218 employees in the state house in the 43rd general assembly. These facts place Iowa In seventh place as to number of employees anc makes the state rank twelfth in cost per day. This would indicate according to the law of average that the state legislature of Iowa is either inefficient or extravagant. A number ol members opposed the resolution in speeches and said in substance trnt too many members preach economy at home and practice extravagance at the state house. Simmers again took the floor before the roll call and with flowers and sobs'" pleaded for tha adoption of the resolution. The vote showed 53 ayes and 40 nays, hence the resolution was adopted. At the last general assembly these clerks were paid $4.00 per day, Including Sundays. Legislature Got Bad Start. There are only two ways to get relief for the average taxpayers, one way is to adjust the load so everyone carries his share. The other way is a cut state expenses. Apparently we got a bad start on the latter. I attended the inaugural ceremony of Governor Turner yesterday and I was greatly pleased with his address. He sounded many democratic principles. The governor is a progressive as also are many of the members of he legislature, and I have said many imes fchat a progressive Is a democrat who runs on the republican ticket to >e elected to office In a republican' tate. This letter is much longer than I in- jended It to be so in closing would urge my constituents to write me at ,ny time when my services can benefit hem in any way, Very truly yours, A. H. Bonnstetter. ao%X»OT3WW»W»X>X!OX»^^^^ OPENING SATURDAY with a Complete Line of Meats-Groceries Vominent Burt Man Died Last Week. Burt Monitor: Thomas Hawcott, Burt retired farmer and member of the town council, died early Wednesday morning, January 14, of an acute cardiac failure. Mr. Hawcott caught a cold a few days previous, and although he has had some heart trouble for several years, no alarm was felt about his condition until Tuesday night about ten o'clock, when a doctor was called. At this time he was coughing a good deal and experienced some difficulty In breathing. He became easier and the family retired. Awakening early Wednesday morning, they discovered that Mr. Hawcott was dead, probably passing away around four or five o'clock. Mr. Hawcott was born December 28, 1853, in Little Tew, England, the son of Joseph and Charlotte Hawcott. He first came to the United States in 1883 returning .to England in 1886, where he was married March 6 to Miss Annie Kench. The couple came again to this country and settled near El Paso, Illinois, where they lived until 1892, when they bought a farm south of Burt. The Hawcotts farmed here for many years, later buying a smaller farm just north of town. In 1916 they moved to Burt, where they built a home. Mr. Hawcott always took an active interest in civic affairs. He has been a member of the town council for The Ford Motor Co.

Special, The Seneca girls' and boys' basket ball teams played two /games each last week. The first one was at Ringsted on Monday night. The girls played a good game defeating Ringsted 17 to 37. Ringsted put up a stiff battle, but Seneca came out somewhat ahead of their opponents. The local boys played a very good game against Ringsted, although they were defeated by a large score 39 to 19. The game was not as one-sided as the score indicates. Ringsted gained their big ead in the last quarter. The small Seneca boys played a better passing and faster game than their opponents but they were unfortunate or unlucky n shooting baskets. Both teams went to Ledyard Fri day night. The Seneca girls defeated the Ledyard girls in a slow, listless same by the score of 29 to 10. The Seneca girls were not playing up to their usual form. -The Seneca boys gave Ledyard a great deal more of a fight than the team had expected although they were defeated 30 to 14 Osterman, tall Ledyard center, was ou| of the game the first half, but Coacr Larson found it quite necessary to play him the last half as the Seneca team was somewhat in the lead. They retained this lead until the last quarter. Ledyard height was then too great for their small opponents, who played a fast passing game. Seneca boys are gradually creeping to the top, even though they are small and lost two regular players this year. We hope they will keep Improving for the tournament. the head with a hammer but would not name his.assailant. Marshal Green took him to the Kossuth hospita where his wounds were dressed.
