DES MOINES, Feb. .9. /!)--The first skirmish on tax revision in th: Iowa legislature was forecast this week with the placing of the county assessors' bill on the house of representatives calendar. The tax committee recommended passage of the measure, the initial bill of a dozen to be considered in changing, the method of raising funds for the operation of the state government. The senate tax committee is expected to approve the measure In a day or two. While the proposal to do away with elective township assessors in favor of trained men appointed by county supervisors is being considered, the tax committees will continue with their series of public hearings on revenue bills. Other Sessions Scheduled. In the house chamber tomorrow afternoon willMje a hearing on a measure to license outdoor billboards and Thursday a meeting is scheduled to hear opinions on a plan to tax oleomargarine. Committees still are studying the income tax bill submitted by the state board of assessment and review and .the joint legislative tax committee. Two amendments which would change materially the bill's provisions have been offered in the senate. One by Blackford of Van Buren would permit deduction of property taxes from the amount of the income tax and one by Doran of Boone wou!d turn over all receipts to school districts instead of thi" state. New Bill Prepared. Meanwhile Speaker Francis John- sou and other administration leaders have been preparing a new in-come tax bill which would give flat exemptions of §1,500 to single per- sons, ,$2,500 to married persons anc $300 for each dependent. The rates would be 1 per cent on the first net $1,000 income abovi the exemption, 2 per cent on thi next ?i,000; 3 per cent on the nex 1 ?1,000; 4 per cent on the nexl $1,000; 5 per cent on the next $1,000 and 6 per cent on all above that amount. A 4 per cent corporation income tax also would be provided in the bill. The measure is being drafter along the line of the recommendations of Gov. Dan Turner. At the public hearing on the income tax the governor suggested that the exemptions should be increased and the rates raised in the higher brackets.

How to Escape FLU Avoid so far as possible the places where flu Sferras are most likely to be spread; over' crowded cars and public meeting places; overheated, stuffy rooms. Be careful of close contact with others and beware of all coughers and sneezers; breathe through the nose, get fresh air, but avoid drafts or chilling. Get lots of rest. Eat plenty of citrus fruits. Keep the bowels open. Take extra precaution to keep in good physical condition, so your system will have high resistance against germs. Above all, avoid catching colds. They lower your resistance to the flu germ. Ward them off. At the first sign of any cold, take Bayer Aspirin and remain indoors if possible until your cold is gone. If you have a sore throat, dissolve some Bayer Aspirin tablets in water and gargle; this will relieve the soreness and reduce the inflammation. If you have any reason to suspect even a touch of flu, call your doctor at once. Spring is Coming .... and the new FROCKS ARE HERE Authentic copies of Parisian successes.
