DES MOINES UPI The socalled Little Old Lady bill which would permit condemna ion of property for water recreation projects was ruled constitutional Friday by Atty Gen Evan L Hultman In response to an inquiry from Sen A V Doran RBoone who bitterly opposed the bill when it passed the Senate 3317 Feb 20 Hultman said the measure was in compliance with the Constitution The attorney general added however that if the measure becomes law and its provisions are exercised there would prob ably be a court test filed The bill would extend the right of eminent tion of private cor porations which with approval of the conservation commission and natural resources council undertake development of water recreation projects The measure provides Lhat at least onefourth of the shore area of any privately de veloped project would have to be turned over to the conserva tion commission for public use Hultman said at least all of the land taken by condemnation for a project and the entire wa ter area involved would have to he opened to the public The attorney general also said that the 25 per cent shoreline requirement in the bill met the legal qualifications to permit condemnation Doran had attacked the bill as cruel and oppressive and con tended it was fostered by self ish interests The Little Old Lady title given the bill came from Dor ans frequent references to such a person Mrs William Morri son whom Doran represented in legal affairs He said Mrs Morrison had re fused to sell her property along the Raccoon River to a private group in the Guthrie CenterPa nora area which was

number of recent bob bles and booboos in the Ken nedy administration is caus ing resentment and concern among Democratic politicians in Congress and elsewhere The quickening pulse among the politicians is a result not of any single mistake or mis calculation Rather it results from the fact that there have been so many in so short a time In every case but one the guilty parfy comes from the egghead not the political branch of the New Frontier The exception of course is Att Gen Robert F Kennedy whose interview with the press several weeks ago on the Bay of Pigs fiasco breathed new

Democrats who have taken on the job of de fending the administrations Cuba policy have been un able to understand why 5 The boohoo involving Can ada several works ago paved the way for the fall of the
