The bill would prohibit any per- on from keeping any alcoholic quor or beer In excess of 3.5 per ent of alcohol by weight unless urchased from a state vendor. ,..;: Sales After -'Election. " ' - - ' Sales of intoxicating liquors may e made in any municipality only fter approval by a majority "of the lectors in a local option election nd the granting by the commission f authority for establishment of a tate owned store. The move for, the establishment f a store in' the community would e initiated by a petition of at least 10 per cent of the voters. An election then would be required after which it still would be optional with .he state commission as to whether .he store should be established. The bill would permit the sale of native wine by the vlneyardist. The measure also would create a board of research, statistics and temperance of five members.

Fine or Prison. Violations of the law would be punishable by either floe or imprisonment or both. The bill carries no provision for a tax on liquors, .the state to derive its revenue for the proceeds of the sales. There is a wide diversity of opinion on various sections of the bill among liquor control committeemen, so that it is apparent it will be subjected to a number of amendments before reported. Several of the committee members favor private distribution while at leant one Is in favor of a state distillery. consultation, in serious properly function." "The government's interest and activities in the field of public health," the report continues, "and its efforts to establish county public health sendees would well be correlated with hospital planning In any such undertaking, due consideration must be given to existing hospitals whose control is now either church, community, county Independent, or, in some cases, private." ^ Attack Indigent Law. Attacking the Perkins-Hsskell- Klaus adult indigent law, the report said: "It should-be repealed, the Perkins law restored to its origina" status and the adult Indigent law forever scrapped. It is an abominable law--made up of Incongnii ties, inconsistencies and impossibilities, incompatible with common sense. "It makes possible, if it does nol encourage and compel the perpetration of fraud; fraud upon the indigent and the taxpayers, fraud upon the sick and well, fraud upon the reputable faculty of the college of medicine, fraud from the medical students, fraud upon the reputable state. "Iowa's adult indigent law Is the Alpha and Omega o£ all that is bad in legislation providing for the state care of sick Indigents. There is no law In the United States to compare with it." Explanation Sot Offered. Referring to the supplemental majority report submitted by Senator Hlcklin and Representatives Millhone and Speidel, the minority report declares that no explanation is offered of how the "county quota plan" brought about reduction in the waiting list of indigents at the hospital, which the three commitee members claimed. The minority terms the county quotas "the superlative of confusion confounded." The minority report challenges arguments that removal of part of the state university medical department to DCS Moines is prevented by the constitution of the state. "Is there anything in the constitution," Uie report asks, "that requires the taxpayers of this state to medical profession of the stand on their heads, with their pockets turned Inside out, in order that their feet may support a great university medical center until Gabriel blows his trumpet? "If Should Be Amended, there Is, it ought to be versity credit, the courses direct from amended or. repealed or prayer offered that the sound of that instrument soon may be heard." The report declares that it is not proposed to move tie department of medicine and that it should remain at Iowa-City. "The proposal," the report states, "is to give the clinical years at Des Moines where many emergency cases fresh from the street make the hospitalized clinical material of much better quality and the number of out patients Is ,so much greater that the minority wonders why the reputable faculty does not request the change." Of the four possibilities suggested in the report, the minority recommends the third, repealing the Indigent law and making possible clinical Instruction of university medical students at Dea Motnes, "In order that Iowa may regain and hold her proud position among American medical schools, and accomplish the purpose of the board of education and the administration of the university."

"It is with deep regret that I relinquish, the opportunity to. continue the work 'here' where the citizens of the state and other friehda Uie university have been ao generous; where the governing board, the finance committee and the fac- Ity have been so determined to maintain a superior institution, vhere the students and the alumni ave co-operated so fully. Reveals Iowa's Character. "This determination to carry on during this period of economic dis- ress has been one of the highlights n American education as well as eing a revelation for certain o) :he finest elements of character.

Bute Too High. Senator Topping also pointed out that in his opinion it is impossible at this time to determine the amount of money that a gross tax ir any other tax will raise and that t trial period is needed.
