Owing to the unrest and gener- al topsy-turvy condition of the coun- try, the people wanted a change, and to be forfeited, that power was with- drawn. We hope that will not be the experience of President Roosevelt. We are strong for increasing the power of our presidents. We believe if Mr. Hoover had been allotted the power of a Mussolini three years ago we would have escaped much of this mad scramble. But you say Mr. Hoov- er made mistakes. Certainly he did, even as will Mr. Roosevelt. So has l Mussolini. And both Mr. Hoover and Mussolini were quick to discover them. power, especially for reorganizing the different departments, early in his term. It was promised him, but when it developed that many of the "extras" in the way of political jobs being handed out by congressmen in payment of party obligations were to fold up and adjourn. The session has proven one thing conclusively, that untrained, un- known men and women, no mattel how they might try, or how well versed they are, cannot organize, per- fect a legislative program and put it across in sixty days. The twenty-third session was the first since statehood which found new and unknown men and women sit- ting. There were comparatively few persons of previous legislative expe- rience. Only a handful of these where placed in positions where they could assist in building legislation. The results of the session show the lack of experience in legislative mat- ters. The session started off with an idea that the Democrats would show how cheaply the session could be con- ducted. Last week an additional ap- propriation was asked, bringing the total cost to that of previous Repub- lican sessions. It was found that the Republicans were taking advantage of their long, years of experience and there was virtually no great extravagance a~ the Democrats and the general pub- lic had been led to believe. Then in the matter of handling legislation. For years the handful of Democrats have wailed long and loud-' ly against the powerful rules com- mittee, against holding bills in com- mittee and of making up caler~:'.: s. they simply were not to be denied. Saturday's school election here is an evidence that that status still pre- vails. PEOPLE'S EXCHANGE WANTED--Horse or team. Will exchange young heifers or milking goats.

The race track bill, the beer bill and the boxing bill have taken up as much time as the most constructive piece of legislation aa yet attempted here. This session will go down in his- tory as the "new deal" Legislature which was to have given the "peepul" of the state a "fair break" It will also go down in history as one ses- sion which deliberatelyand through every possible device sought to pre- vent the "peepul" from having any- thing to say about legislation enact- ed.

The new rules com- mittees discovered that unless they acted as sifting committees and de- cided what bills should be brought in, little would be accomphshed. There has been just as much com- in the constitution at limitations on bond issues. Recently the Senate adopted the new savings and loan code, an ac~ involving 70,000 people and their savings, without reading the hill. The entire time required less than ten minutes. Then the staid ann earnest senators locked into a two- hour deba~e over a bill which would repeal the state do~ tax, involving probably several hundred dollars of annual license fees.
