night came out formally in support of a 56member Sen ate plan previously backed by GOP State Chairman Robert Ray and Atty Gen EvanL Hultman who is expected to win the Republican nomination for governor The small county bloc in the Senate has held firmlyto a plan providing only 51 senators giv ing the one additional to Polk County The 56member plan would give two more senate seats to Polk County and one each to Black Hawk Linn Scott and Woqdbury counties The rural faction predomin antly Republican had the solid backing of the Iowa Farm Bureau Federation for its member Senate to offset the circle of opposition closed around it by1 the Republican State Central Committees po sition The central committee took issue with the Farm Bureau by saying the committee the irresponsible statement that this plan 56 senators and the Republican leadership Jayored the urban interests only On the contrary the committee be lieves that anyplan containing less than these minimum stand ards
