ruu wire MASON CITY IOWA FKtDAY APRIL 24 W9 7 copy TW DES MOINES the Iowa Legislature moves to ward adjournment soon the session already is over for perhaps half of the bills introduced This is legislation proposed early in the session but now in the legislators haste to go home they are not expected to hang around to act on them With the Legislature past the traditional 100day mark just slightly more than 500 bills have been acted upon by Future tor Half of Bills Submitted to Iowas Legislature m i 11 either the Senate or the House Although a bill has passed one house there is no assur ance it will pass the other especially at this late date in the session Because of this much important proposed legislation is expected to die committee But veteran Sen J Kendall Lynes RPlainfield says as a rule any important peice of legislation that has failed to make the grade one session usually will have enough bounce to come back The major appropriations measures were being ad vanced Friday The Senate Sifting Committee had the ways and means bills to pay for excess appropriations An eight per cent income tax bill expected to produce an additional million dollars in state revenue was before a similar House committee Some legislators say there will be no adjournment until vital issues like reapportion ment workmens and unem ployment compensation are resolved But what is the fate of some other important pieces of legislation A Houseapproved key club bill was virtually killed in the Senate Thursday when it failed to muster enough votes to get out of committee A bill to legalize union shops in Iowa also passed by the House is not expectedto get past the Republicancon trolled Senate even if it gets out of the Sifting Committee One of the most widely dis cussed measure o provide an open season on advanced no fur ther than the House Sifting Committee The bill origi nated in the House Also pending in the Sifting Committee with parently little chance of ever reaching the floor for debate is a Senatepassed measure to replace the three member State Tax Commission with a single commissioner appoint ed by the governor with Sen ate approval On the Senate side other bills apparently buried deep within the Sifting Committee include those to repeal the Iowa laws prohibiting tipping and providing penalties for desecration of Decoration Day by such activities as playing baseball Both have passed in the House Also bogged down in the Senate is a House bill to per mit counties to establish pub lic garbage dumps and an other providing for a public referendum before a public water supply is fluoridated to cut down on tooth decay The House has not yet sent out a bill legalizing the point system in Iowa while the Sen ate had in committee House approved measures calling for annual sessions of the Legislature giving county boards of supervisors the pow er to rezone counties Also there are bills still in committee to give cities a big ger share of the road use tax fund for street improvements to create a commission on hu man relations to provide aid to the totally and permanently disabled regulate billboards on the interstate highway sys tem and clean up some evils in election practices The sifting committees gen erally have the power of Jife or death on much of the re maining legislation although the respective houses can vote a bill out on a majority vote How Style Changes the Man Ivy League Grad Now Finds Iowa Right in Step By WILLIAM K ZINSSER New York News Service NEW YORK I just happen to have grown up in the East and gone to a college in the Ivy League so I have worn Ivy League as a cer tain style has recently come to be known for a long time The style includes such feat ures as the singlebreasted suit the nonpadded shoulder and the buttondown shirt and if an I L man wears a casual sweater it has a round neck not a Vneck WELL WHEN I first went to Iowa a few years ago my wifes teenage sister told me she never saw anybody who dressed so square I wouldn1 catch her boy friends wearing funnylooking rigs like that ant as for collars with buttons on them that was Bottoms viije What I did catch her boy friends wearing was unlike any thing I had ever seen but that wasnt the point A year later I went back in my usual costume and she could hardly get over how well I was dressed You might have thought the Duke of Windsor had come for a visit How did I get so unsquare so quickly I asked her More Backing for Labor Bill SLIPPERY EXIT FOR MILL WORKERS i A car AP Pholofax broken glass and The glass and oil was i

newest she said Its called Ivy League All the fellows here are wearing SURE ENOUGH the boy friends who came calling looked like Princeton freshmen and I could see by their approving glances that I was now a real cool Midwest type and no long er an Eastern jerk The down town store windows which had been filled with weird attire were brimming with suits and shirts like mine and the signs all said Its New and Everybodys Going Ivy But the vogue may soon burn out Recently the American mens wear industry at its an nual convention was told that it must create fashion obso lescence in order to capture

band of university students held the fort ress for nearly 12 hours Friday before making their peace with the police and departing with honor The police although armedwith tear gas and fire hoses used diplomacy to talk some 150 students out of Beersel Castle The students had used ripe tomatoes and fruits to pelf police from behind the castles thick oaken doors The students male and female swam the castle moat in the dead of night to occupy the fortress It started as a stunt to protest against university budget cuts in favor of a campaign to popularize museums But things rapidly assumed crisis proportions While the students played rock and roll records over the castle loud speakers steeihelmeted federal police and riot tanks sur rounded the place However after hours of talking the stu denfs streamed out of the castle Beersel Castle is on to the location of another noted skirmish fought ISO years ago the Battle of Waterloo Loveless told his news confer industry intends to push them like it or not toward the con tinental style which has short er jackets with narrow peaked lapels slanted side pockets and tapered cuffless trousers Many men are already wearing der ence Friday that Schroeder is the same man who campaigned in his own district on completely removing the Iowa personal in come tax yet I havent seen any legislation from him to that ef This is the same man1 who promised four weeks ago to Men are not so fussy but the take quick action on a bill in bies and as the the Hat Corp of minded clothiers president of America re a man wear ing a high fashion derby be
