Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - March 17, 1965, Mason City, Iowa beating Gerrymander that is By JOHN BECKLER WASHINGTON AP The House has dealt what it hopes is a lethal blow at the gerryman der that oddshaped congres sional district drawn to favor one party over another It did it by passing a bill set ting federal standards for congressional districts which would require districts to be as compact as practical Although the definition it far from precise the bills backers made it clear they mean the courts to outlaw the weirdly shaped districts that take their name from an early Massachu setts governor Elbridge Gerry Another provision of the bill would permit the population of a congressional district to be within 15 per cent of the aver age district in that state The bill which passed by a voice vote now goes to the Sen ate Since it doesnt apply to tne Senate the House hopes the Senate will pass it speedily without change The provisions would into effect in time for the 19GG congressional elections Many states have been under pressure to redistrict since the Supreme Court held last year that one persons vote in congressional election should be worth as much as anothers Although the 15 per cent pop ulation variation actually per in its a difference of 30 per ccn between the largest and smal lest districts the House hope the court will heed its proposes standards as an expression o congressional policy The courts have been calling for such an expression to guide state legislatures in redis triding During the debate which showed a great deal of confti sion on the subject in the mind of many members the argu men most often used to win support for the bill was that i Congress didnt act the court would And instead of a 15 pe cent variation from the aver age the courts might permi only 1 per cent the House wa told As an example ot the confu sion on the floor the House firs adopted and then rejected an amemlment that would have permitted members to run at large in slates that failed to complete a rcdistricting plan in time for an election Approval of the amendment came on a 7150 nonrecord vote Rut on a later roll call it was beaten 255 to 147 with many members changing their votes after first casting them in favor of the amendment Weather wont halt cook school Despite the weather there will be a cooking school in Ma son City Thursday and Friday Said

No March in Montgomery The Dougherty clan of Dougherty A touch o Ireland right here in By CHARLES Paddy OWALK North Iowa News Director DOUGHERTY None of the Doughertys of Dougherty spent St Patricks Day at St Pat ricks in Dougherty Confused Well faith V begorra its as clear as the sky above the Emerald Isle on an April clay Perhaps however it would be better to say it this way On a normal Wednesday some of the children named Dougherty who live in or near the town of Dougherty would be spending part of the day in this case St Patricks Day at St Patricks School which is located in Dougherty Since Wednesday was St Pat ricks Day however there were no Doughertys or anyone else for that matter at St Patricks of Dougherty As the Rev L H Reicks put it Im afraid we wouldnt ac complish much by having school on the day of the patron saint of Ireland in thisIrish com munity It is highly doubtful if Daniel Dougherty anticipated such con fusion when he became the first white settler of this community in 1863 Nor would it be completely fair to blame the senior Dough man who landed on the shores of America in 1851 with nothing but a pair of hands good health and the determina tion to all the confu sion Mr Dougherty does however have to share the responsibility of all the Doughertys of Dough erty with his younger brother James All of the present Dough ertys of Dougherty are direct descendants of Daniel and James For example there is 8year okl Phillip Dougherty the great greatgrandson of Daniel Phil lip is one of the four Dougher tys who would normally spend part of St Patricks Day in St Patricks School The other three Doughertys who would be furthering their education on this day of Irish re joicing are Paulline Phillips 13yearold sister and Sally 12 and Mary 14 Sally and Mary sisters are the daughters of Mr and Mrs James Dougherty James or Jimmy Joe as he is known here is the grandson of the original James Dougherty Phillip and Paulline are the children of Mr and Mrs Clark Dougherty Clarks father E G at 74 is the eldest of the direct descendants still living in the Dougherty area although the Widow of his uncle Barney still lives in Dougherty Now at the risk of further confusion we really shouldnt forget Robert Dougherty Rob bert is another grandson of the original Daniel Dougherty His father also was named Daniel and was a brother of James EGs father and
