June Is about as Uard a time to get out a full vote, especially among the farmers, as could be selected during the entire year. This has been demonstrated time and again, by |N WASHINGTON By Otb* D. Weartn Ure, Seveftth Iowa District The House devoted mo*t of it's time this week to a consideration of the District of Columbia appropriation bill, a detailed measure, and passed it. Such bills usually provoke considerable discussion and when yon do that In the midst of 435 members it means complications. The Senate seems to b« greatly concerned over the Domestic Allotment bill and other measures pertaining to agriculture. At this time, Saturday morning, the former proposition is still a subject The price ot human life is too • dear to lose any more of it in ; such crashes. In my opinion the I testimony ot the survivors should ) be made public, if there was sa- j botage while the ship was being j constructed we must be more cau- j tioos. If dirigible construction is not practical let's stop spending taxpayers' money on them and devote our energies to planes. The above are some of the things that should be brought out and made public in the tnvenUgattoa. w«*> w>w —. ~ j {Qf)j- prujrH/BiliwU IB »».»•• •» u*««»^-w-v- the small votes cast at the j of debate and amendment.

The city vote will be ont then, as well as any other time, but the rural vote is seriously handicapped by the work on the farm, at this time the busiest time of the year. It would be much fairer to all concerned to set the election at least a month later. But, the wets seem to be in control in the legislature this year, and the election will donbtleas be set at a time most favorable to their plans. fort is being made to Include the administration's mortgage refinancing bill in the proposal which Improves It as emergency legislation. I was quoted in the press of last week as being in favor ot some plan to refinance farm mortgages. That statement was correct.

Few Industries keep as alert as does the automobile. Scarcely a month goea by without some new development is made with the result that our automobiles today are not only marvels of comfortable transportation, but are- low enough in cost to permit nearly everyone to own one. Although the housing industry is infinitely older it has lagged years behind its transportation brother. As a result good transportation is far more available to the average person than is good housing. And the better features of bousing, such as bathrooms, plumbing, electrical conveniences, heating etc., can be afforded only by a minority of the people. This is one field of industry which is in line for considerable development during the next decade.

E. J. Johnson, formerly their city manager, as clerk-engineer, a position which will probably have many of the manager's responsibilities. When Mr. Johnson was city manager he inaugurated many improvements in that community's government and activity which have proved very valuable since. After Mr. Johnson resigned from the city managership, Red Oak voted to change that form of government. The city manager type of government has proven generally successful over the country, even in such small municipalities as Red Oak. It is equally as safe in regard to the citizen's rights and the man- agemenet of the city as is the council form, but permits economies in management which usually are of considerable advantage to the taxpayer*.

With the most laudable purpose of securing control of closed banks for the benefit of the depositors instead of the bankers and lawyers, this new proposed law contained some provisions that bankers of the state did not like. They were here in force on Tuesday of last week and evidently prevailed on the powers-that-be to make such changes In the proposed bill as would suit all interests better. Under the new affinlntstration banking btU« the banking department, with the approval of the governor (and only with such approval) has complete control over the savings, state banks and trust companies of Iowa, and with the approval of the governor any bank can reopen or take waivers from depositors, when the officers, directors and stockholders shall have first paid a 100 per cent assessment on stock held by them, for the benefit of the depositors. Any stockholder paying such assessment will be released from further obligations under same. Said assessment shall be in cash or securities approved by the governor and the superintendent of the banking department. The law provides that the banking department, with the approval of the governor, shall have the right to "waive or modify any of the provisions or requirements of this act, where a bank is not to resume operations, and where waivers or depositors' agreement* are taken as a part of a of . ..

Such a measure would have a stabilizing effect on governmental finances and would at least make the tax burden stay in Uae with economic changes. For example: In a time of prosperity, when citizens are in a too expansive mood and are not so careful of the amount of profit allowed on the things they buy, these two forma of taxation would bring a greater return to the governmental bodies and would make unnecessary and difficult the issuing of long term bond* which are usually paid off in a time of deflated values. Should a period of deflation come, too, the tax burden, baaed on aales »nd income would vary in direct proportion to the falling price index, to ihtu it* p«m» would not b« dt»trM*«d in their effort* to All frttcks most hereafter carry "flares" for use in case of the track needing to stop on the highway at night to change tires or make repairs. The flares Would be placed 76 feet in front and the same distance back of the parked truck. Another bill provides that drivers of motor vehicles shall not drive over 12 hours continuously, and a third bill provides all traffic must keep on the right side of the center ot the pavement or road. House Kills Highway Refunding The House Thursday by a vote Of 58 to 46 killed the Senate bill providing for refunding primary highway bonds, and spreading the payment ot bonds coming due over a longer period, and thus avoiding the possibility of a direct property tax, or the state defaulting payment on part of the bonds. The bonds become due over a period of years, the peak being in the next few years.
