insisted they entered the slate voluntarily and only to give Democratic vot ers a chance to express their pref erence for the partys 1952 stand ard bearer The outcome of the battle be tween Kefauver

this presidential year is the fact that interest in candidacies for the Iowa Legis lature isnt up to standard At least thats the outlook as of now As of the close of business in the secretary of states office for this week 133 Republicans and Democrats had taken out nom ination papers as candidates for the Iowa House At the same time there had been 33 candidacies started for seats in the state Senate 108 Members All of the 108 members of the House in the 1957 Legislature are to be elected this year as usual Twentynine of the 50 senators who will serve in the next regular session will be chosen They serve fouryear terms Twenty one were elected in 1954 The 133 seeking seats in the House as of now compares with 172 at about the same stage two years ago The 33 out for the 29 Senate seats compares with 31 candidates for the 21 seats two years ago v One factor which might account for the dhtlook is that the filing dates are earlier this year than in 1954 But after the usual initial rush for nominationpapers the requests began to dwindle arid relatively few were made this AP Wirephoto 90 CLIMBS TREE AT 90Eugenia Frazier whJr av Saturday but who looks more like 60
