cominittee pres ent fit The interim group conducted an investigation of the commission last fall and turned over to the legislature a transcript of its pro ceedings Republican Stall One member of that committee Rep Gene Poston RCorydon charged in a heated exchange with hairman Walterthat there jublican majority in the leg slature is stalling and does not plan any further investigation Walter said that his committee was given no authority except to examine the testimony taken by the interim committee and that one of the reasons he asked the 4 mem Ders to appear was to determine whether they had any factual evi dence to show that liquor com mission members had violated the law When he brought the 30 minute session to a close no decision had been reached on what kind of a report the Walter committee would make to the legislature Demands Airinr Rep John Hansen DDed member of a subcommittee of the Walter committee demand ed that further inquiry be made into charges aired last year con

unless congress orders a house cleaning the voters will at the first opportunity Similar messages come from Arkansas Michigan Florida Mis sissippi Tennessee California and other states across the nation Looking at these letters there is no doubt Fulbright touched on a subject that is worrying many people when he asked for a com mission to consider the prob lem of ethical standards of con duct inpublic affairs And like the man from Weath erford Texas Fulbright is cer tain there are enough good men left to start a cleanup by point ing the way to a more rigid standard of conduct for public officials Ten Men Fulbright chose carefully the names of 10 men whom he would like to seeon the commission He called them private citizens oJ outstanding achievement and character whose integrity is be yond question Ho are these men that Ful bright would trust with the task of laying down rules of conduct for public officials What qual ity do they have in common that caused the senator to choose them Here are the 10 on Fulbrights honor rollof honest men 1 Former Supreme Court Jus tice Owen J Roberts 75 He gave up his bigmoney law practice to accept an appointment to the court by President

his w o r k There were con Reuther was shot secause he tried to stamp out the lumbersracket in his union Followed Father 5 Former Senator Robert M Jr 56 of Wisconsin followed his fiery father into he senate and served there for 3 terms There is a story that re ublican leaders gave him rela i v el y unimportant committee posts because he refused to mod erate the political views he had shared with his father He was as determined as his dad to fight for what he believed right 6 Chief Justice Learned Hand 79 of the second circuit court of appeals A robust stocky man with thick eyebrows and sharp Judge Hand has a formid able court appearance But his Mends know him as a shy man le first attracted national atten ion when he upheld the Volstead act at the beginning of prohibi ion 7 Dr Reinhold

upon contraband cap pis tols arid caps or else to just play like they have the real articles Their favorite bill of the 1951 legislature was defeated in the house late Monday It would have legalized the sale in Iowa of cap pistols arid caps The seriate had a lot of fun over the measure when it was passed there But the house after ar amusing start turned serious and killed the measure 52 to 49 When the bill was brought up in the house it was to the ac companiment of sporadic popping of cap guns Hep JShiestTKosek RCedar for theyoungsters whohad ex their interest but failed G T Kuester EGris wold said it would be morally wrong to pass the bill becauseit mightleadto juvenile delinquen cyHep Ted Sloane RDes Moines said the effect would be to teach disrespect for law Rep Gene Poston said the only persons who wanted the bill passed were merchants who would profit by such sales Kosek said most surrounding states now have legalized sale of pistols and caps He said these articles are being brought into Iowa illegally now and that that is bad psychology for children He emphasized that the 1947 legis lature authorized sale of regular firearms minors KlemesrudBill Forbids Coihges to

a scholar ship Americans I Parallel 38 in Force Believes Senators Confused By JAMES MARLOW Washington The senate has given an amazing demonstra tion being unsure of what its doing on the troopsforEurope issue did com plete about faceall in one was only a climax toits general confusion of past two weeks A couple of years ago the senate approved the North Atlantic de fense pact Article 3 of that pact pledgedthefU S arid its western allies to mutual aid Our aid was in arms which the senate approved too but not m men We sent none Then the communist attack in Korea last summer showed how pitifully equipped the pact partners were to fight even a small war in Korea They got busy to build a big European army in case Russia attacked President Truman prom ised tosendU S troops there to swell the ranks GeneralEisen hower was made commanderin chief ofthis allied army A number of persons including 3 prominent President Hoover and Senators Taft of Ohio and Wherry ofNe the Truman pro posal on one point or another Led Fitfht Taft and Wherry led the fight in the senate There were a number of argumentsagainst the Truman idea Most of them were brushed aside but this remained as the big Under the constitution the pres ident has no right to send U S troops into such an overseas alli ance which might end in war without approval by congress Mr Truman msistedhehad the constitutional right withoutCsuch So all sides could have their say two senate committees sat down together in public hearings which tasted weeks When the last witness was heard the two com mittees drew up a resolution A resolution by a committee i means nothing unless its laid be fore the full senate for approval or Long Resolve For most part this lengthy reso lution was full of fancy words The key to the whole thing was in section 6 written by Senator Smith New Jersey republican and okayed by 24 members of the two committees It is the sense of the senate that in the interest of sound con stitutional processes and of na tional unity and understanding congressional approval should be obtained of any policy requiring he assignment of American troops abroad when such assignment is n implementation of article 3 of he North Atlantic treaty and the senate hereby approves the pres ent plans of the president and the joint chiefs of staff to send 4 idditional divisions of ground forces to western Europe Do you think you know for sure what that instance it says the president should get approval of congress Does that mean he must get such ap proval Taft said wanted must substituted

71 resigned Monday as Maquo teta city manager after 21 years on for nearly an hour Lodge told the senate is a realized from the outset his pro no chance of approval He said he merely had offered his amendment to draw the issue sharply and that since the debate had it clear he was with drawing the amendment He had stressed that the senate ought to back down on its stand that congress should pass on every deployment of troops to Europe He argued that would mean congress would have to take a vote if it was proposed to send supporting artillery and engineers to join the divisions the admin istration intends to assign to Gen Dwight D Eisenhowers North Atlantic defense force You are going to deprive the American soldier of his Sunday punch Lodge declared 4 Divisions Okay Before the senate
