Senate is based on population A provision preventing any county from more jthan one senator prevents apportionment on a strict populationjbasis Shdff Plan This plan is named for State 0 Sniff of Clinton WhoIntroduced it in its present form It has been passed by two successive sessions of the legis lature and must win approval of the voters Dec 3 to become law V The plan would establish a house with 99 members one to each county It would create Senate with 58 members based on popula tion County lines would be crossed to form the 58 districts but boundaries would have to conform to township or voting precinct boundaries A large countysuch as Polk would be subdivided into districts Population in each district could vary no more than 10 per centfrom of the states total population at the last fed eral census The population unit according to the 1960 cen sus would be 47544 A district then could be no smaller than 42790 depopulation and no larger than 52298 No one will know the exact makeup of the districts at the time of the Dec 3 election A commission of 10 members five from each major political party tfoiild have to submit a redis ricting plan to the Legislature by Feb 1 1965 The legislature could accept the plan amend it or enact a substitute If neither the com mission nor the legislature could agree on a plan by these dead ines the Iowa Supreme Court would be charged with establish ing the districts by Oct 1 1965 In any event the plan couldnt go into effect before the 1966 elections prior to the 1967 ses sion of the legislature Court position Last May a

the 55 smallest counties represent ing 274 per cent of the state the Senate by tl 26 least populous districts repre senting 356 per cent of all lowans court decided by a 21 vote against ruling on the Shaf Plan at that time Judge Edward J McManus argued that the Shaff Plan i unconstitutional but the other two judges Martin Van Oosterhout and Roy Stephenson that submission o the Shaff Plan to the may serve some useful purpose and may have a direct bearing upon the rationality of the ap portionment proposed by it Further clarification is ex pected from reapportionment suits now before the US Supreme Court Alternatives If the voters approve the Shaff Plan the Federal Court panel has these alternatives Decide the plan constitutes acceptable apportionment Rule that the Shaff Plan ii unfair and direct the lowaLegis lature to adopt another plan giving guide lines Write its own plan and issue an enforcement order Return to the 1857 Constitu tion and elect 100 House mem bers and 50 Senators on a popu lation basis If Voters turn down the Shaff Plan the Federal Court panel could Suggest Iowa Legisla ture try again on court direc tive Write its own plan Return to the 1857 Constitu tional provisions As far as timing is concerned an alternate reapportionment nan could be put into effect for the 1966 elections if a special session of the legislature were called for 1964 to write a new amendment It would have to be assed again by the 1965 legis ature voted on by the people the same year and then be ready for 1966 elections Congo orders all Russians out FROM QUR WIRE SERVICES
