EIGHT MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE DECEMBER 11 1933 LIQUOR CONTROL SILENCE MARKED AT LEGISLATURE 80 in House Sign Agreement to Demand Satisfactory Tax Revision. By SPECIAL CORRESPONDENT DBS MOINES, Dec. 11.--Most pe cullar around the state capitol al last week has been the silence re garding the new liquor laws for Iowa. Nobody seemed to talk about it; if they did it was in subdued tones and with mysterious shakes of the head. Chairman Joe Frailey of the sen ate special committee on liquor Jaws is outspoken enough about it and has nothing: to conceal. He says the committee is working on i and will have something out pretty soon. And he is not in favor of any private liquor monopoly of the busi ness, such as proposed by a lot of druggists, said to have been here several days working on a plan to have hard liquors dispensed b druggists. Senator Frailey says tha with druggists also dispensing soap face powder, baggage, radios, wheel barrows and bowling alleys, he does not believe In interfering with theii business by asking them to dispense liquor. Likely to Pass. The liquor bill that is likely ti pass will be one retaining contro by the state for selling liquor in state controlled stores, where noth ing less than a prescribed minimum quantity can be purchased and tha in a package that may not be openet in the place. Private use of liquor will thus be relegated to the homes of purchasers or to hotel rooms or other places--no open drinking places, say the advocates of this plan; no open saloons. Yes, we wiiJ have no legalized liquor in Iowa before Christmas. More than SO members of the house have signed an agreement that there shall be no adjournment cf this special session until "a rea- aonably satisfactory" tax revision bill has been passed. Representative Bruce of Pocahontas county arranged for this anchor to prevent the session from flopping on the ihain Jssue. Tax Battle Now On. Take your choice among any of half a dozen tax revision bills now before house and senate--and then hope' you are not wrong. Senate file No-. 1, and house file No. 1, both of which are known as the interim tax committee bills, are out of. committees and on the operating table as a clinic; The senate started operating, on it.Thursday, morning, but many amendments offered that nobody could keep track of them without having them printed. Therefore, a motion to defer consideration of the bill in that body until today when amendments were printed in the senate journal. In the house this and any other bills will be under fire by way of the "Cunningham bill," H. F. 204 which is the gross Income tax bill, or sales tax, presented by Representative Cunningham of. Polk county and 35 other members of the house whose names are printed on It. Sponsors for this bill will try to substitute it for H. F. No.,1 and hope to get .enough support to pass it, and if they do, It means final tax compromise on that line of taxation or nothing.. Probably Be Closed. Public and committee hearings on tax bills have been frequent during the past week. Dozens of interested parties have been here to favor their own ideas and to get members interested with them. From now on the sessions ore likely to be closed to public expression In this way an members will get down to business. Senator W. F. Miller of Buchan an county would provide in a bl introduced by him that the stat shall be divided Into four zones b the state lish and game commis sion and that funds collected by tn commission shall be expended i these districts proportionately. Senator Tripp, new senator from Jr.sper county, has proposed a non partisan judiciary bill that woul make selection of judges possibl without partisan ballots. Iowa ha such a law at one time, but it wa repealed some 17 years ago. A bill to provide for a liydro-elep trie power commission has been in troduced in the senate by Harring ton and Roelofs to "conserve, contro and develop waters o£ the state fo use and benefit of the people, an to establish, construct and opera! electric and power plants."

Farm leaders in both houses hit the packers hard and indicated they better be watching out for their own welfare if they :ry to thus nullify the benefits intended by the federal act. The senate promptly passed the same resolution and it has been dispatched to Washington. Who Is Out for Governor ? Every day we hear republicans al the state house asking "who wil we run for governor?" Seems that they feel the symptoms of. a campaign coming on without adequate material on hand to meet the situation. Dozens, yes, hundreds of ·ood republicans are being men- ioned, and but few are being aetual- y boomed for the honor. Oh, there fill be a political race In Iowa in he year 1934! But it Is not now etting off to a start with any con- entrated direction. In this connection, we get the nderground Information that Gov- mor Herring is not listening with iy show of interest to the proposl- on that he take the Des Moines ostoffice and let Lieut. Governor ·Craschel be governor. Herring is aid to be quite pleased with his job.
