EDITION VOL LXI Utttrt ma MASON CITY IOWA FRIDAY JUNE 17 IMS TO Paper CoiuliU of Two Burn Argentine Churches After Revolt Hoeghs New Car Debated Not Sure If Deals Legal DES MOINES AVSome behind thescenes maneuvering by top level state officials gives promise that the State of Iowa soon will furnish Gov Leo Hoegh with an attractive automobile for officia use However members of the State Executive Council which will make the eventual decision are not in unanimous accord with the plan under consideration A sur vey shows two for it one against and the two others noncommitta for the present The date of deci sion has not been set The proposition is this A dealer will furnish a fourdoor Oldsmobile 98 for with one condition This is that after a years use the dealer will be permitted to buy the car back at the same price One of the difficulties involved is that under the law the state can not pay more than for an automobile Another is the question of whether the state can accept a proposition with a condition at tached The attorney generals of fice hasnt ruled on this point Rttail The type of car concerned would cost about at retail The state buys all of its cars at less than retail price because it doesn1 pay federal and state taxes A bill was introduced in the 1955 Legisla ture to lift the ceiling on purchase of a par for the gover nor It passed the Senate but not the House Meanwhile Hoegh has gone near ly six months without a state car Other governors have had cars of their choice and of about compara ble price range assigned to them Hoeghs personal car is an Olds He prefers an Olds from the state for that reason In a canvass of council members on the proposition those who fa vored it are Hoegh and State Audi tor C B Akers Opposed is Secre tary of State Melvin D Synhorst Noncommittal for the present are Secretary of Agriculture Clyde Spry and State Treasurer M L Abrahamson Atty Gen Dayton Countryman said the proposal has been dis cussed briefly but there has been no opinion given no specific ques tion has been asked and no formal request has been made for an Some Rtactions Here are the reactions of the council members to the proposal looks to me like it is good business It wont cost the state anything We would have the use of a car for a year at no ex pense except for definitely would ap prove the proposal We can have a gentlemens agreement to sell the car my opinion this was not a legal bid because it amounted to a conditional sale and the state would not acquire com plete ownership However it was most generous offer But I dont feel that the State of Iowa is in need of charity Therefore it is my feeling that this not being a valid bid it should be was not at all of the meetings when this matter was discussed I dont know the legal mechanics of the thing You could consider the proposition a good deal financially But did the dealer do it for advertising purposes or what else comment pe Hoegh has never been assigned a state car He has never turned down one of the Chevrolets Fords or Plymouths available He has driven several sample cars sup plied by dealers SAME Ik truffle M keiri In put IOWA FALLS Anderson Iowa Falls and son
