campaign relying heavily on the resources of radio and television as well as on posters plastered on news stands and in subway cars tends to hammer away at two themes The first is to remind readers how much they enjoyed their favorite newspaper when it was available every day at the corn er newsstand And the second is to assure the faithful that Well be back a move de signed to scotch the recurring rumors that one or more papers would be driven out of business by the long strike The citys radio and tele vision stations have reaped the benefits of this dont forget us campaign The promotional activity has furnished them with consider able revenue from paid spot an nouncements and in some in stances sponsored news pro grams The newspapers also have made their top newsmen and columnists available to the stations many of them feature taped interviews or brief hews broadcasts by some of the citys the nations most dis tinguished journalists The New York Times for ex ample has expanded its regular news programs on radio sta tion WQXR which it owns In addition NBC presents a tele vision program The New York Times of the Air in New York and Washington every Sunday Although NBC produces the pro gramTimes newsmen are used exclusively Because of its news service and West Coast edition the Times and Herald Tribune con tinue to function as a news gathering organization Hun dreds of their employes here and abroad still are on the pay roll The Herald Tribune also had a radio station available for its use when the strike started The Tribune was under contract to supply hourly newscast ma terial to radio station WPAT in Paterson NJ beginning Jan 1 and when the strike began on Dec 8 the contract became effective at once The Herald Tribune also has gone in for an

101 MASON CITY IOWA WEDNESDAY JANUARY 16 1963 copy No 291 Dispute on plan by Shaff DES MOINES Shaff plan for reapportionment of the Iowa Legislature was bucking the first of its legislative obstacles Wednesday with a dispute at the 1963 session over a single word in its language When the plan was approved in 1961 it said existing apportion ment provisions are repealed and the following proposed in lieu thereof Four Republican senators who oppose it said the use of the word proposed made it ineffective They offered an amendment to substitute the word adopted which they claimed would meet constitutional requirements Those offering the amendment which they said would delay the Shaff plan at least two years were Sens J T Dykhouse Rock Rapids Richard C Turner Coun cil Bluffs p C Nolan Iowa City and Edwird Wearin Ifted Oak author of the plan1 vid 0 Shaff RClinton said the four senators may be quibbling over words and there wont be any problem in the courts oroth erwise Since the plan involves a con stitutional amendment its provi sions in identical form need ap proval at two consecutive legisla tive sessions and then by the vot ers to become effective The controversy it produced in 1961 is being revived at the cur rent session Senator Majority Leader Robert Rigler RNew Hampton1 said the point raised by the four senators is a technical one which could be answered by a competent legal authority He added If they are right I would say the Shaff plan is in serious trouble Shaff said he is relying on the advice of the attorney general that the wording is correct He said Atty Gen Evan Hultman was asked to study the proposed constitutional amendment before it was approved and on Jan 26 1961 recommended the phrasing to which the four senators object The Shaff plan calls for a House of 99 members one from each county and 58 senators from new districts based on population The House representation is one of the main points of controversy raised by opponents who say counties with the least population can con trol legislation Hultman said Wednesday he is sued an opinion last January in which he held that the measure would accomplish what it was in tended to do He said he studied the questioned phraseology at that time and approved it Hultman declined further com ment because he said he has had no formal request for another opinion However he gave no in jdication that he had changed his mind On the inside Editorials Page 4 Clear Lake News U Society News 1415U17 Sports 19M Comics 22 North News 24 Latest Markets 28 Mason City News Death tm Put 24 AP
