FEBRUARY 10 1931 APPOINTMENTS TO BE PUSHED Objections to Be Presented to Minnesota Senate Committees. . ST PAUL, Feb. 10. C/P--An effort u dispose of three important appointments whose confirmation has been withheld by the state senate will be undertaken this week by senate committees to which they have been referred. The committee on agriculture headed by Senator Roy F. Crowley of St. James, has before it the appointment of N. J. Holmberg as commissioner of agriculture, dairy and food. The appointment was made by former Gov. Theodore Chnstiansou who sent it up for confirmation just before retiring- from office. Objections to Holmberg's appointment will be presented formal- Jy to the committee on behalf of Gov. Floyd B. Olson who asked the ^senate to withhold confirmation. Olson said that the commissioner is ., personally unacceptable to me," arid that several agricultural groups and many individuals have expressed dissatisfaction with his administration. Holmberg, asserting that no criticism of his administration has come to his ears, will fight the charges. He maintains the charges are "purely political." May Be Extended. Because of the determination of both sides in this case, there is a strong possibility that extended hearings may be held altho several members of the committee have expressed themselves as favoring no delay. The appointment of F. A. Duxbury as a member of the state industrial commission, to whom Olson has expressed objection, but whose appointment was withheld by the senate at the request of Senator Gerald T. Mullen of Minneapolis, is before the senate committee on workmen's compensation. This committee, headed by Sen- .ator Milton C. Lightner, St. Paul, will furnish Mullen with an opportunity to present his objections and then afford Duxbury an opportunity to reply. Mullen's criticism is based on the complaints of certain labor groups who have charged Duxbury with "anti-labor" leanings in his decisions, particularly those dealing with allowances under the workmen's compensation act. Is Olson Appointment. The third appointment to be disposed of is that of J. N. Peyton of Duluth as commissioner of banks. Peyton is the first Olson appoint' e n t to run into confirmation diffi- ilties._ Objection to him is based 3 the 'fact that a bank of which he Jan .officer in Duluth failed to pay 1929 national bank taxes in line '"an agreement between the legislature and national banks. This appointment wag referred to the committee on banks and banking of which Senator H. A. Larson of Preston is chairman. Senator Larson was at Washington last week as a member of a delegation which, has been seeking an amendment to the national banking act to make possible re-enactment of Minnesota's laws for taxing national banks which were made inoperative under a decision of the United States -supreme court in March, 1927.
