(^--Liberals who talk about federal control of private business, .and the methods of some farm strike leaders drew criticism today from George N. Peek, farm administrator, in an address before the American Farm Bureau Federation's fifteenth an- ual convention. Peek is about to resign as farm .administrator as a result of a dis- lUte with agriculture department ibernls and take a new job at the vcad of an agency that will try to ind ways o£ disposing of agricul ural surpluses. After saying he be leved the export field would re ward "a very careful looking-into, ho asserted: Fenr Unwarranted. "There is grave concern over th expressions of a few ultra-liberals about the government taking over private business. If you want my opinion--personally, not officially, mind you--I would say that this apprehension is unwarranted. Tin- less it hustles, the government has more hay down now that it will get up before it rains. "The foundation of the whole structure (of the American government) from tho first has been a respect for private property rights, and the sacredness of contracts. Legitimate profits have always been regarded in this country aa a proper reward for individual initiative, industry, and thrift. I know of no substitute for such traits. I am In favor of the profit system; but I am In favor of starting with the farmer. Propaganda Abroad. . "There is abroad in the land a propaganda o£ more or Jess importance for doing away with the profit system. This means no more and no less than doing away with the in- agaiust the racketeers in the underworld. But the remedy lies not in destroying our institutions," \ Of farm strikers: . :,; "I do not protest against-tie hot impatience of some farm leaders. I do protest against their methods, because I think they are futile. And I protest against a strike, aimed at the president of the United States nd his administration--an admiu- stration which honestly is endeav- ring to do all that agriculture has isked of previous administrations; hat is to say, restore equality to agriculture." , · Aaron Levin was the second man'to be charged with murder in connection with the Inquiry into the lynching of a Jfegro at St. Joseph, Mo.

SENATE TO STUDY BUREAU TAX ACT (Continued from page 3) ator Gorritt Roeiofs, a member, spoke yesterday.

He did not refer directly to the rival bill, the jross income tax measure, but said le wag unable to see any tax measure aa a panacea for all ilia. "Tax Other Fellow."

"I feel that the interim bill IB'one personally can support," he con- luded. "It should demand earnest ousideration and should he a start oward the tax revision which our Deople desire." While the senate debated tax re- rision, the house passed seven measures and killed one bill by laying t on the table. The bill tabled was sponsored by .he motor vehicle committee and would have raised the age limit uh- ler which minors could drive motor ·ehtcles. Objection to the measure vaa made by several members who ontended it would impose a hard- hip on farmer boys. The tabling motion carried 70 to 21. Pass TraHlc Bill. It took almost an hour's debate o pass the bill of the house jucli- lary No. 1 committee which pro- ·Ides. that traffic on designated loulevards or highways shall have he right of way at street intersec- ions. The vote was 88 to 8. Opponents of the bill claimed that t would give preference to the person driving on an arterial road in case of an accident. The proponents lointed out that It was a strictly safety measure. Other bills passed were: By McCrecry--Abolishing the requirement that farm auctioneers procure state licenses. By iloore of Harrison---Permit- Ing any municipality to purchase 'and for state parks. This right now is limited to cities of 3,500 or over. Burlington Armory.

The Farm Bureau bill, H. F. 131, was introduced only in the house ut on previous occasions senate members had spoken in favor of having their present study include all of the major tax revision bills. Dlferent Rates. Drafted under the direction of and supported by the Farm Bureau, H. F. 131 proposes different rates n the gross income from wages and salaries, sales and other sources f income. The Harrington bill would provide or on initial rate of 1 per cent tax n all gross Income, while S. F. 1 roposes a net personal Income tax t 1 to 5 per cent, a 2 per cent net orporation income tax and a 2 per ent tax on retail sales. In supporting the bill of which he and 10 other senators are the sponsors, Ilarringtoa declared the gross ncome' form , to*be -the- "fairest ruethod'! of taxation. The bill, he said, also will make iha most sweeping-change in that t. proposes a complete removal of all property taxes. This removal of property taxes he declared to be "the essential hing--the thing the. people are demanding." Fair to Everyone. Senator Harrington said the tax system proposed would be fair to everyone "because everyone would be assessed exactly alike." He directed attention to the provision for registration of each taxpayer. Tliis provision, he said, and the fact that everyone will pay a tax will make the people of Iowa tax conscious. Urged for Passage. The house committee on roads and highways today recommendec for passage the Jensen-Yager-McKinnon bill to create a department of public works and to eliminate the state highway department and atati custodian's office.
