come forward for the first time Dec 20 with a legislative reappor tionment plan of his own Hultman has carefully kept h i s feelings on reapportion ment to himself while represent ing the state in a suit in US District Court jAs attorney for the state he defended both the present sys tem of apportionment and the proposed Shaff Plan But She court has held that the present system is unsatisfactory be cause it is unfair to many citi has own reapportionment plan Tl AflH Ill a n 1 zens And the voters on Dec 3 rejected the Shaff plan Hultman now finds his role switched Instead of defending an existing or proposed plan he will be advocating one he will outline to the three federal judges He will not talk much about the plan before presenting it to the court But he told The Asso ciated Press in an interview Ploase dont call it the Hult man plan It actually will be an outline in general form rather than a specific plan I have to come up with something that will be approved by the Federal Court the leg 4 islature and the people And I have just until a week from Fri day to do it With the last he glanced at his desk It was piled high with his file on the problem Hultmans mention of legisla tive and popular approval of the it a tip that he has a special legislative session in mind Through regular sessions the people could not vote on a new proposal before 1967 A special session could bring it to a vote two years earlier The court by beginning hearings so soon after the Dee 3 election has indicat ed that it opposes a delay It would be up to Gov Harold Hughes to call a special session He has said he hopes to wait un til the Federal Court rules be fore deciding whether to do so Hultman said he and Hughes have not discussed the proposal Hultman will make in court There is a chance that the two will oppose each other for gov ernor next year Hughes a Democrat is expected to try for a second twoyear term HuK man appears the strongest like ly contender for the Republican nomination for governor The court hearing Dec 20 will give Hultman a chance to start scratch with a new propos al rather than defend one al ready before the court The problem he saidj is to find a plan which will assure a fair voice to the masses living in urban areas while guarding the rights citizens I think I have such a plan he said Hold up prior Will survey closer route t The Iowa State Highway rommission Wednesday or dered a detailed survey of an alternate route of Inter state 35 that would pass Between Mason City and Lake The surveyVhad been re quested by the Mason City Committee for Interstate 35 Harry Bradley Jr Des Koines commission chairman told the GlobeGazette that the engineering study will not take more than three months It will not delay the future arogramming of Interstate 35 to the north he said The Mason City Committee or Interstate 35 had suggested ftree possible diagonals leav ing the Highway 69 corridor at points between Belmona and Klemme then going 1 northeast ward to a point near the Mason City Airport It would then head directly northward to an Interstate 35 control point near Albert Lea Minn Bradley said engineers will decide placement of thediag onal He added that as of to day the alternate route is on a line just west of the Mason City Airport This would puWhekerstate route near the eastedge of Clear Lake and about six or seven miles from Mason Citv I The Mason City comrnittee originally had suggested a cor The Globes Iowa Line The GlobeGazeKes distance telephone wire was used to rather Information for thlj article idor east of the airport but eft specific routing to engi neers It had been pointed out by committee that this alternate route would not isolate any North Iowa community in the The survey orderedWednes day by the highway commission vill permit accurate compari son of construction and rightof vay costs between the Mason ity alternate and the tentative that would parallel High vay 69 through North Iowa Bradley said appears that the Mason City route for all practical pur oses is the same mileage as he one along Highway 69 said Bradley This Mason City plan vould provide a diagonal rout ng in Iowa instead of Minne sota in effect this will wipe out he roaduser benefit that we had originally on the Highway 9 route Bradley was referring to the arlier comparison between cor idors along Highway 69 and lighway 65 The Highway 65 route which vould have passed between Ma on City and Clear Lake was ejected last June largely be a use it was 58 miles longer The commission engineers lied a roaduser formula and stimated it would cost rootor sts an additional million INTERSTATE Please turn to Page 2 SAME ;
