United Prew Full Wlrw Seven Centi Copy ISON CITY IOWA FRIDAY SEPTEMBER 24 WZ Thli Jap Two Section Education Board Head Blisters Legislative Group Says Some Men Drunk With Power Climax to Funds for ISC Building FT DODGE OWDwigbt G Rid er Ft podge president of the State Board of Education Friday issued a blistering statement di rected at the Iowa legislative in terim committee The fact is that the legislative committee has been and is trying to take away the administrative functions which the 1 a w granted to the State Board of Education the statement declared There are some fine gentlemen on the legislativecommittee but they are apparently yielding to the radical members who are drunk with power and the desire for publicity It was the climax of a long Smouldering feud which broke into the open at a committee meeting this week State Rep Dewey E Goode RBloomfield a commit tee member touched it off Scionco Building The matter came up in a com mittee session with board repre sentatives who wanted to build a new million dollar science build ing at Iowa State College Goode accused the board of making il legal transfers of funds from the college administrative to its build ing account L a t e r the committee approved construction of the science build ing but only after receiving a written promise from the boards building committee that it would stop shifting the colleges moneys from general to building uses Riders statement said he had asked the committee in view of the publicity adverse to the board which had been given to the press and radio to answer three ques tions and make public the an swers V t The Do you find that there has been any dishonesty on the part of the State Board of Education orapy member thereof Do you find that any nxoneys were so spent for any purpose which was not absolutely neces sary to the welfare of the tutions Do you find that there was or was notan honest dollarsworth of return to the people of the state of Iowa for every dollar which was so spent Rider said the committee de clined to answer the questions on the ground that the adverse pub licity had not been by action of the committee but by one of its members Not Man Enough And thismember has not been man enough to answer them Rider Commented At Bloomfield Goode said At no time did I ever question the integrity or honesty of any member of the Board of Educa tion I take it that Riders first ref erence was directed to me I be lieve that the state has received a dollars worth in the expenditure of funds by the board But my objection is to the fact that the board in my opinion is not going bythe statutes pertain ing to capital improvements at the college Rider also said This board was created for the express purpose of having higher education in the state of Iowa free from political interference and pressure For this reason the law granted it broad powers and for 43 years these powers1 have been exercised by the board for the benefit of the people of the state of Iowa and the young people of the state who seek higher education The important thing is that the people of the state of Iowa and the other members of the legislature know that the Slate Board of Edu cation is going to continue to use its honest and best judgment independent body to administer the affairs of the institutions un der its control under the law for the furtherance of higher educa tion in his state and for the bene fit of the people thereof and par ticularly our young people who seek an education at those insti tutions Rider launched into his state ment by saying it was being made because one member of the com mittee has seen fit to castre flections upon the history and in tegrity of the members ot the tMFd UTnUWTAV IT A rn T GlobeGazette pholo by HIGHWAY FATALITIES Sgt

data indi cates that continuance of Eisenhow ers lead is subject to two highly important questions 1 Can he hold the independent voters 2 How will the currently unde cided filially swing The figures show that white among probable voters only 10 of the Stevenson vote is coming from the independents 26 of the Eisen hower vote is coming from that source With the results close now it is obvious that Eisenhower can not afford to lose many of these in dependents Not Classified The term independent as here used means one who does notclas sify himself as nearly always a Democrat or nearly always a Republican In this case he may vote usually or frequently for one parly and change only occasional ly He is independent if he is nota staunch party adherent He is to some degree mobile rather than fixedin1 his party decisions As such he is less apt to vote at all The independents constitute well over a third of all probable voters who arc undecided If most of thecurrently undecided indepen dents swing to the Eisenhower side his lead would be much more Defi nite Ifmost swing the other way the lead dwindles Predominantly the independents are in the young er age groups Will Talk Abouf Fund EVANSVILLE Ind OH Gov Adlai E Stevenson hit Republican promises of budget and tax cuts Friday and said there can be no bargain basement peace T he Democratic presidential nominee spoke to a cheering Hook icr audience of about 4000 from the steps of the Evansville Court house Contacting This news cainc on the heels of Stevensons announcement that he is contacting contributors to his much discussed fundfor supple menting state salaries with avicw Demo COP i Likely to Voto 44 5o 72 How all Prob Vot Divido M SI M When he likely stayathomes are taken out of the potential vot ers leaving the more certain vot ers the poll now shows this lineup Undecided Minor Post election studies in 1948 in dicated that of the decisions made in the final fortnight went to Truman Shouldthat propbrtioin be allotted to Stevenson he then take a very narrow lead over Eis enhower Actually a 7426 ratio is extreme However experience in dicates that a majority of the Un clecideds should usually be consid ered as Democratic And a 6040 division of these would make Eis enhowers lead precariously low It is clear from this analysis hat the election result far from jeing decided by advance convic ions depends primarily upon the comparative effectiveness of the current campaigns CORN SHIPMENT SIOUX CITY of the ear liest shipments of new corn in a number 1 years arrived here Thursday frim Tripp SD SAME muck
