Flat Rate For Auto Licenses Is Proposed In Legislature Madison, Wis. (Special.) Proposals to substitute fixing of auto license rates on the basis of weight j by establishing a flat fee of $5 f or all cars, and extending the date for obtaining new licenses have been : presented to the Wisconsin legisla- s ture. ""he fiat fee proposal, which was presented by Assemblyman Willia i Rohan. Kaukauna. provides that the license fee for all passenger cars would be $5. All parts of the licensing section of the statutes which pertains to nxing the cost on the basis of weight ai stricken out in the bill. The other measure, presented by Assemblyman Franz-kowiak would shift the effective licensing date from Feb. 1 to April 1. Franzkowir.1- is also the author of a bill to increase the gas tax " am four to five' cents and reduce the license levy. Another measure of interest to motorists was the bill of Assemblyman Rice, Delavan, which would re duce the gasoline tax from four to ihree cents. Tut Up Their Cars According to Franzkowiak trouble can be avoided now by having the legislature extend the date for purchase of new plates. "When the last day for using old plates rolls around many persons unable to buy the licenses then are forced to put their machines in garages," he said. "Because of this. gasoline dealers and even the state treasury would suffer a loss of revenue. "Police and other enforcement officers are vorried because they must make arrests for the use of old plates while knowing that the enforcement date would be extended anyway. Meanwhile those who obeyed the law and refused to drive with old plates were being deprived of the use of their machines.". Strict License Law Among other bills on motor ve hicles expected to come in la is i one calling for a stricter operatois' license law by reqv:ing examinations to demonstrate ability to unve, auu (jussiui.v iui muie lie- quent registrations. At present most anyone can obtain a drivers' license by payment of 25 cents, with no time limit involved. The Wisconsin w is regarded as being faulty in this respect and efforts will undoubtedly be made to overcome this weakness. The claim is that the cost of examinations can be 'defrayed by boosting the fee to 50 cents oi one dollar and possibly requiring one or three-vear renewals. Tm o Struck Bv Vccidental Shots j Baton Rouge. La. A Christ-I mas rifle Ben Font purchased with carefully saved pennies from his j slender WPA wage was blamed t-j day for the partial blindness of two of Font s sons. Ten-year-old Fred lost his right eye Saturday when struck by a match fired from the gun by a playmate. After this accident, Mrs. Font threw the gun, on a woodpile :n the rear of the house and warned the children not to touch it. But the next' day 12-year-old Charles dropped a stick of wood on the weapon. It fired and the ball struck him in the right eye. Assemblyman Here Gets Many Letters About Pension Law Assemblyman Joseph M. Theisen is deluged with letters mailed from all parts of Wisconsin concerning his efforts to bring about a revision of the old age pension law in this state. Ajssemblyman Theisen favors an increase in pensions and is opposed to that provision of the present old age assistance law which requires recipients to deed their property over to the county. The following letter he recently received is typical of the hundreds of others written on this subject: "I want to tell you how pleased we were when reading about the old age pension law, and of the changes you are in favor of making, as they are what we so often wished for. We think you have the right idea, and I know there are many more like us. We hope you may be successful in carrying them through." ? 1 I y jr , '0hflj r i i L a ' a 1 .

Citizens of t Greek City states, the Roman Kirmirp n-H j the Germanic tribes voted long be- fn W Okanogan, Wash. iff Valiant dog teams defeated the Cascade mountains' deep snows to save Fred WTute, 25-year-old miner, from an appendicitis operation in the wilds and place him today in a hospital bed. White arrived at a hospital here last night for an appendectomy after a journey of more than 15 hours in 18-below-zero weather. Plane, ambulance and automobile as well as bob sled played a part in the dramatic rescue a battle with snow drifts which ended with both dogs and drivers exhausted. Hospital attendants said the op eration was delayed because WThite suffered "some shock" from a 60-mile trip from the Azurite mine, 8,000 feet up in the mountains. Dr. E. P. Murdock, who climbed to the mine last Saturday and then called for aid, prepared to perform the appendectomy. Heroes of the exploit included the dog team mushers, Ed and Charles Kikendall. At daybreak yesterday they set out from the mine with White and Dr. Murdock, mushing abiut 11 miles to Horsehaven station. There they met George Stone-braker, of Wallace, Idaho, with a fresh team of dogs which had been flown in a plane 200 miles from Lewiston, Idaho. Stonebraker carried on to Robinson Creek station where a bob sled was waiting. An automobile later took up the burden, reaching Winthrop at 7:30 last night. An ambulance brought White over the last leg of the journey to the hospital. Freshman Co-ed In Beauty Contest Madison, Wis.
