this week but closed on Saturdays thereafter Indications were that Judge Tobins decision would be ap pealed to the Iowa Supreme Court The 1965 legislature tacked the Saturday opening provision onto a bill setting up a new pay schedule for county officers Atty Gen Lawrence Scalise ruled that the law makes it mandatory for county court louses to stay open half days on Saturday The Benton County Board of Supervisors resisted and Harry V Long a Benton County resident then filed a suit to test the law Judge Tobin in his ruling said that the legislature unquestion ably has power to require coun Ly courthouses to stay open on Saturdays if the law is validly enacted But he ruled that the law as city where 80 per cent ol its passed is unconstitutional on two grounds The Iowa Constitution pro vides that a legislative bill musl deal with only one subject The bill as passed he said dealt vith pay of county offi cers and the hours of court louse opening The Constitution requires that he subject matter of a legisla ive bill be described in the bills title and in this case the itle made no mention of court louse hours of operation Judge Tobin added that a suit cannot be brought to require county officials to keep the courthouse open because the law as passed docs not place upon any official or group of of icials the duty of seeing that the courthouse is kept open County Auditor Alvin Ohrt of Tama County which had also challenged the mandatory na lure of the law said the court house at Toledo would be open Saturday morning this week but that it is very possible the courthouse
