County Keullocatton. Cunningham said tlie reallocation to the counties for 1935 and thereafter would be based on the average collected for each year for the last decade. He also poincd out the bill would make no exemptions and would eliminate assessors. Under the bill a state tax commission of five members would be created for terras of five years. The members of the present boarU or assessment and review would constitute a portion of the membership of the first commission. As terms expire, the members would be appointed on even years by the governor and on odd years by the legislature. Commissioners' salaries would be $4,000. Wilson Bill Fails. The Wilson bill failed to pass the senate by a 24 to 24 vote but Senator George Wilson of Folk, the sponsor, filed a motion to reconsider. Before action could be taken on this motion the senate adjourned until 10 a. m. tomorrow. The bill which would have assured citiea and towns of the right to apply to the state comptroller for exemption of five department funds from the restrictions of the Beatty- Benuett tax reduction law was debated vigorously. Senator Wilson's plea for adoption brought vigorous opposition from several senators including O. P. Bennett and Frank Beatty whose names were attached to the tax reduction law passed by the last regular session of the general assembly. Declared Necessary. Wilson declared his bill to be vitally necessary not only for Des Moines hut for other cities of the state and he read figures showing the reduction in fire department funds for about a dozen cities and towns. He declared that insofar 0.3 Des Moines is concerned failure to pass the bill would mean the closing of five or six fire stations in the residence district and a further reduction in the wages of firemen. Senator Bennett told the senate it would be a very serious mistake to pass the bill, declaring that "we have gained ground in tax reduction and we must hold it." Co\ild Get Relief. He said he was natist'ied that fire departments could obtain relief without passage of the bill. His views wore supported by Senator Beatty who declared the present law affords fire departments the same opportunity as other department to apply to the state comptroller for some exemptions. This was denied by Senator Wilson. Attempts were made to limit the scope of the bill first to cities and towns of more than 45,000 population and as a substitute motion to towns of more than 17,000 population, but the senate defeated one proposal and the other was withdrawn. Objections liaised. Major objections raised to the bill by thore opposing it was that it would be a letting down of the tax reduction bars. It was contended that an exception for one department or fund would mean that other groups would seek similar exemptions. Wilson changed his vote from aye to no before the final count was announced In order to be in position to move for reconsideration. Senator Bennett sought to table this WASHINGTON, Dec. S. (JPJ-- President Roosevelt has informed members of his official family that he is willing to be shown that the federal securities act is interfering with capital flotations. He told them he Is determined that the act shall not be weakened, but is maintaining an open mind on modifying portions of it if opponents can prove their contentions. But so far, he is by no means convinced that it has forestalled economically--arid socially--proper issues. Suits For Damages. The act has been attacked on the ground it has made issuers and corporation directors fearful of accepting the stringent liabilities of the act as administered by the federal trade commission. These enable broad suits for damages against all parties to an issue, and many bank- era urge modification so damages could be sought only in the'amount actually incurred, and against only the persons actually responsible for misstatemcnts. 1 James M. Landis, member of the federal trade commission and a drafter of the act, has been appointed to Secretary Roper's stock market committee. Hits Few Conclusions. This committee has reached few conclusions so far about stock market legislation. The group is co-operating with the banking committee headed by Senator Fletcher, and Roper says, is subordinate to the senate committee. Officials say the capital market is sluggish for many reasons other than the securities act. Favor Secretary of Peace for Cabinet CHICAGO, Dec. 8. /P)--Inasmuch as the president's cabinet has a secretary of war why shouldn't it also have a secretary of peace?

Shay, treasurer; John Batchlor trustee for a three year term. instead of agreeing to appoint abor members to authorities administering codea is working on a jlan for the creation of governmen- :al boards including labor and consumer representatives to observe industrial operation. It was definitely understood today that the organized labor demand for a place with industrialists on the committees which actually 'overn coded industries has been turned down. The most vigorous pressure from busrjiess convinced officials that to grant it would wreck tho present relationship buil up in NRA. Industrialists who made the representations to Hugl S. Johnson came away satisfied. This led to the new formula, stil in an indefinite stage, by which la bor, clamoring for a "partnership 1 with business under the industria law, would be granted a front sea among reviewing authorities an would have men in strategic posi tion to object to actions deemec inimical to the workers* interests Addition of a consumer reprcsen tative, this plan's authors say I would bring up customer participa ion to the aamo privileged status s labor, and lessen the objection of ndustrialista, who oppose labor or- anization, to the commanding po- ition which would be given the worker side. Labor chiefs have yet to be heard rom'on the new plan but they have seen preserving the most complete ilence since it was broached to hem and the turndown of their irst proposal was made.
