The Upper Des Moines-Eepublican, March 11, 1931 THE LAW MAKERS RETURN TO FINISH A LONG SESSION With Them Come all the Interests Concerned in Final Dash of "Bills for Acts." Des Molnes, March S. Special to •*he Upper Des Moines-Republican: Today the Iowa lawmakers who went to "their homes February 27th for the purpose of looking after private business and resting from the grind of the session are returning to the state capitol. It Is considered probable by most •experienced observers that they will be here for elghfc more weeks, at least, •which will make a two weeks longer session than the average. Up to the present time they have passed but few bills for acts and those'who have pet measures which they arf greatly Interested In are going to mnKe a final dash for the goal. With about 400 bills Introduced for parsage In. each house, .It Is expected there will be at least 200 more Introduced In each body Immediately after recovering this week. Then a time limit will be set for introduction of *ills, and a little later sifting committees will be provided to pick out the fcllis they favor or that demand attention, aside from appropriation and . committee bills. Congressman Here This Week. This week the entire Iowa delegation In Congress will be back here, and there will be something doing all the time from now till the matter of re- •districtlng Iowa's congressional districts is settled. Senator Brookhart will also be here, and Senator Dlckin- Jnson (just broken out of his congressional shell) will be on exhibition as :iowa's newest senator. Of course, these two will not have anything to say or do about arranging the congressional districts to give us nine districts where for many years we have had eleven. It is said that Brookhart is coming back to organize his own •campaign which comes on next year— •and explain Just what party he is go- Ing to be with in the reorganization of the senate, perhaps. Speculation over the possible redls- trlctlng Is now about us much a matter o° interest as th> investigation o f the 8. U. I. Which two congressmen are igplng to be left out in the cold? Which counties are going to be subtracted from or added to other districts. The situation as regards tnc f>ev- «rth district may be referred to as a •case In point. The seventh is the dis- 'trict of which Polk county and Des Moines are the renter, It has been •represented by Casius C. Dowell for a generation. At presnnc there are iii this district Polk county, "and also" Story, Dallas, Madison, Warren and Marion counties. These "also" counties can altogether just about olfset •the delegation votes of Polk county if they stand together. But now is their chance to break away and have some influence In another district, and every county is going to maneuver to break •away. One member of the house has "had the nerve to propose a. new disr trict,-'. with Polk as the east end of the hammer, and then Boone, Greene and Carroll counties as the handle. Just speak to a Boone, Greene or Carroll county politician about that, and feel the reaction. But Dowell will hardly care much, since Polk county •will be the hitting end of the ham- tner anyway. Another redistrictlng plan, proposed by Representative Bylander of Marshall county, arranges nine districts •with a view to equalizing populations •"and forgetting everything else," as one senator expressed it. Sol, that won't do. Two Will Contest Primaries. At least two of the new districts •will have to have two of the present congressmen located in them, and these two will be matched against each other in the primaries next year. And what congressmen is looking for a game of that kind? Several will have to stand by and see some of their own substantial and dependable counties tranferred to other districts, and which one wants that? Future political ambitions will be •wrapped up in the whole congressional redistrictlng proposition. Several pre- state senators, and some not present, have their eyes on congressional Jobs some time. How can they piece the counties together so as to sidetrack some present congressmen to give them a clear track? Well, it Just can't be done to suit everybody, but it has to be done, for Iowa's population does not require eleven congressmen any more The S. U. I. Investigation. Legislative probe of the business affairs of the State University of Iowa, started two weeks ago, is now regarded as a pretty serious matter by all concerned. Whether any of the charges are substantiated or not, or whether the investigation discloses any irregularities or not, the affairs of one of the biggest education institutions of this country have been qeustioned and so seriously that from president to Janitors explanations have been necessary. The legislative committee, given the powers of a trial court In the matter of summoning and questioning witnesses, and in subpoenaelng books and records, have proceeded right along with the investigation during the recess of the general assembly. With the attitutde of a fond mother spanking her son, the committee is proceeding with the air of "This hurts me far more than it does you," but it has to be done for your own good and to clear the Institution of any smirch on its character and integrity. The committee and all the records which had been gathered at Des Molnes for the investigation were transferred last Wednesday to Iowa City where the monotonous questioning goes on. Now the alumni of the university are interested; some of them pretty darned mad; occasionally one who says th6 investigation is Justified and necessary; the general publ!6 looking on with a question as to what It Is all about, and why newspapers printing pages of the proceedings and the state university faculty and state board of education facing the whole proposition with a semi- defiant attitude which indicates that 'it won't be all over when it Is over, over here." If, as the New York slicker says, "You get what I mean?" Should Cut Appropriation. Now we find they are organizing' 3. U. I. alumni associations in many towns and cities of the state, which ndlcates an alignment of forces that may heave a heavy brick later on. We note their resolutions admonish legis-, ators that this Investigation should, not prejudice them against the usual appropriations necessary for the con.-, toued efficiency of the university. Presumably there Is 'some question as to whether the general assembly will come across with the askings of the big state educational institutions since this !n- estigation may provide an excuse for cutting them. Paving Bond Issue in Court. Legality of the state paving bond issue is now in the district court of Polk county and it is expected that within two weeks the Issues may be ubmitted in order to perfect an appeal o the state supreme court during its present term. Just how long it will take x> reach the case it is hard to calcu- ate, but the plan is to have the mater passed upon in time to' call a special election for June 16th, provided ;he supreme court upholds the con- titutlonallty of the proposed change in he fundamental law of the state. Reduce State Salaries. All state officers and subordinates are regarding closely the trend of sen- iment toward a reduction of salaries, and the cut of expenses declared necessary Hy Governor Turner. All elective state officers' salaries are fixed by legislative enactment and cannot be changed during the term of office to which the incumbent has been elected. But the legislature may decide what salaries shall be paid to their successors. Appointive state officers' salaries are usually provided for the "Omnibus bill" which is one of the last bills to be passed at any session. This bill names each such office and its passage fixes the pay for that office. A cut of ten per cent has >een recommended in all these, and it s thought the disposition of members will be to make some such cuts. Kick Out the Parasites. At the same time, there appears no movement to curtail the many com- missions.jfeommittees, boards and other bodies created py the general assembly, all of which require extra clerk hire, postage, office facilities, expense money, etc. One member says there and a hundred inspectors, examiners, and other employees traveling the state most of them in official cars at state expense, with a growing demand for more of the same kind. Some of these are supported by fees they themselves collect, but many others are on the pay roll. It is not a popular political move for anybody to suggest their elimination. A consolidation of some of the state offices is recommended as one way for reducing official expenses, but we have seen no bill that will do the trick. Card of Thanks. I wish to express my heartfelt thanks to my friends for their sympathies during my sad bereavement in the death of my beloved husband and for the beautful floral offerings.—Mrs. Julia Strom. P. T. A.
