With this will be involved the proposed homestead exemption act. Wants it on Same Basis. ' ; I am opposed to a homestead exemption bill such as was proposed at the last term of the legislature for the reason that it penalized the rural areas," he said. "1 want an exemption on the same basis for both rural and city property." Another problem, according to Mr. Dean, will be consideration of efforts on the part of state departments for larger appropriations. "With times as they are 1 feel there are some departments that will need more funds," he said. "State educational institutions, drastically cut during the depression, now have larger student bodies and will likely need more money. State penal institutions also are asking for an increase. I am not prepared to say without some investigation whether these increases should be granted." To Introduce Bill. Mr. Dean plans to introduce bill limiting the per diem pay to members of the old age pension commission, putting it on the same basis as the board of education. The local senator favors the passage of a law similar to the M. J. fllcENANEY Representative Indiana budget appeal law, which the interim committee, on which he served, recommended. This law is now being sponsored by the Iowa State Taxpayers association. It provides that any 10 persons may appeal to the state board of assessment and review for a hearing in the county on budgets of taxing units. SCOUT DINNER ON WEDNESDAY C. E.

Although reports from nearly a score of cities disclosed Thursday that influenza and pneumonia, those twin perils of winter, are slinking about Iowa, exacting their toll of illness and death, the disease has not gained great headway in Mason City yet, according to City Health Director C. M. Fran- chcrc. About 12t) cases of influenza were reported in Mason City Wednesday and three deaths have been reported since Christmas due directly or indirectly to the disease. Mild Epidemic. Stale health authorities and physicians agreed that so far the influenza attack is a "mild epidemic" compared with the scourge ot 1318, but warned that it might become worse "i£ people don't lake care of themselves." In Des Moines a city health department survey listed nearly 1,200 cases of influenza and 11 cases of pneumonia, with 12 pneumonia deaths in the last three MANY PROBLEMS BEFORE SESSION, SAYS M'ENANEY Removal of Property Lien on Old Age Pensions Proposed. Morgan J. McEnaney, Cerro Gordo county's new representative to the state legislature, is making plans to leave Friday morning for DCS Monies to take up duties in preparation for the opening session Monday. "The first matter o£ vital interest to the legislators will be the selection of a speaker for the house," Mr. McEnaney stated. "The fact that the house is evenly divided, 54-54, will augur for -a spirited fight if the race is to be decided on strictly party lines. There arc at least four democrats in such race and the party choice will be made at a caucus to be held during the week-end." Mr. McEnaney said that he had not decided on which of the democrats to support in the caucus for such office but he intimated that any o£ the candidates would make an excellent speaker. Many Problems Up. "Many problems will face the assembly at the session commencing Monday," he added. "Amendments to the social security act, as adopted at the special session in December, 1936, will occupy a prominent place in the legislative calendar. Other matters oJ interest will be the question ot retention of the sales tax and the Allocation of funds received from such tax; the repeal or termination of the present $2 head tax for olc age assistance, increasing of olc age pensions and homestead exemptions. "I believe that those old peopl who have saved sufficiently in th past to own a small home, but wh are forced to accept the old ag pension should not be required t place a lien on their small horn for future advancements receive under the pension. The man wh does not own a home is not undo such an obligation, and there is n justice in penalizing the man wh has his small home but who mus J. E.
