ended TOWAS VOTERS BY OVER whelming margin on June 4 of this year pushedopen a door of opportunity which could lead to the one finest court system in our broad land But the task isnt completed Theres more to be done and the next move is up to the legislature By their vote at the primar the people of Iowa gave re sounding indorsement to the proposal designed to take our judicial system out of partisan politics The amendment to our state constitution calls for the appointment of judges from nominees screened by commis sions made up of representa tives of the bar and the genera public But that amendment did my spell out the exact process by which this should be done The proposal was purposely drawn in somewhat general terms as a matter of insuring maximum flexibility within the genera 1 principles of restricted execu tive appointment and emphasis on fitness The legislature is by no means in its functions It has numerous choices within the framework presented A scrutiny of the language reveals that most 01 the provisions require legisla tion to become effective Among thdfte which do prq visions repealing the1 former sections requiring election judges for four and six year terms and the section prohibit ing increase or decrease of a judges salary during his term These provisions in the new amendment are selfexecuting For a very practical reason the terms of all judges were ex tended to Dec 31 1964 This was designed to leave the 1963 General Assembly with ample time to pass the necessary im plementing legislation Here it should be observed that those who drafted the amendment stu diously avoided both the fact or the appearance of encroaching on the legislative domain By giving approval to the amendment on two occasions the lawmakers demonstrated an enlightened interest in the pro posed amendment and qualified for full partnership in transform ing it from broad principle into specific reality Now we are reedy to consider some of the legislative decisions which must be made to give our judicial amendment its maxi mum effectiveness The amendment tells how the nominating commissions for both the State Supreme Court and the District Courts shall be appointive by the the governor subject to Senate confirmation and part elective by members of the bar But it does not designate the exact size of either the state or the district nominating commissions The Supreme Court commis sion may range from 7 to 17 the District Court commissions from 7 to 13 There are valid arguments for both the lesser and the greater numbers Its for the legislators to weigh the matter and draw up the ground rules In the case of the smaller commission it can be contended that it would be less expen sive to convene that it would be a more effective study group than a larger commission and that there would be less invita tion to cliques to form within the commission For tht larger commission it can be argued that there is a reduced danger of domination by a small group that theres more democracy in numbers and that under this approach it would be easier to provide area representation Its for the legislature to say Area representation on the nominating commissions is re quired under Sec 16 of the judt cial amendment But the due consideration of this factor called tor under thelanguage is a matter to oe Torn te y REGAL GATHERING In the
