4 Primary Elec tion Day are as farsighted as of our last two state legislatures have been our state can have the distinction of possessing the one finest court system in our broad land Our lawmakers on twoocca sions the last time by a vote of four to one have placed their approval on a proposed amend ment to the judicial article of the state constitution which would in my judgment guaran tee an able and independent judiciary and at the same time make that judiciary responsible and accountable to the people oS Iowa Now that proposal is to be presented on a special ballot at the June Primary election This is in accordance with Iowa law A constitutional amendment must be approved in identical form by two consecutive ses sions of the General Assembly before being presented for bind ing ratification by majority vote in an election In accepting the state chair manship of a voters committee seeking to gain the publics ap proval of the constitutional amendment liamactuated fay one desire Thats to help lift our judiciary and courtsystem above partisanpolitics Right now and be fore IJeave a wrong impression let me make it as clearas I possiblycan that I hold our pres ent judiciary in high esteem at the district level as well as at the Supreme Court level The truth is that we have fared ever so much better in the caliberofour judges than we had any right to expect from the archaicsystem with which we select them If anybody in my presence ever charged or even intimated that there has been widespread corruption or even marked ineptitude on the Iowa bench I would be among the first to challenge the claim as unfair and untruthful Having clarified that at least I hope I like to talk about this proposal which if adopted would put Iowa at the head of the other 49 states so far as its court system is con cerned Other states have adopted one or more parts of what has come to be known as the Iowa Plan But we will be the first to go the whole way There will be nothing mental about it however let me hasten to add UP AND OVER AT SAN QUENTIN demonstrates other convicts broke out of San Quentin prison in California It was the first break of this type in at least 19 years Prisonofficials said the men some of them considered dangerous and possibly armed broke into a store room stole the ladder and scaled this section of the prison wall which is unmanned between midnight and 8 am Dad said she couldnt wed Barbie learned to cook England UPDAndrew Cairns took very serously the dictum that the surest mans heart is through his stomach So he refused his 19year old to wed until she rrfeal That was two months ago So behind her mother s apron strings until she moment She put a meal of roast beef and Yorkshire pudding in front of Cairns Thefather smacked his lips and smiled Now you can get maTried he said So Barbara and Eric Goldsack also 19 were married over the weekend She could not cook a boiled egg two months ago said her overjoyed father Now I would say she is a pretty good cook If Eric has to hve on roast beef every day he wont be doing so badly For a moment or two lets con sider what we have a right to expect from our system of jus which is at the very heart of freedom and selfgovernment First of all of course there must be a fair and workable code of law For that obvious ly wet must look to our legisla tive branch of government Second we must have honest and able judges the best we can muster An enlightened code of law will fail unless it has the best possible interpretation and administration in our courts Tjiird there must be ample provision for carrying into effect the decisions fairly arrived at in the halls of justice This as pect of our court system as do the first two mentioned calls for a Godfearing citizenry This we have in Iowa ina degree un surpassed anywhere else in the world I verily believe Having considered what is needed for a properly function ing system of justice lets turn briefly to what we have Do we in Iowa measure up fully to the specifications I have outlined V Our code of law is by no means perfect It never will be But we DO have the means and Teachers1 salaries up 2142 per cent in Iowa
