Both nations told the Pan-American conference in session here, one its host, the Uruguayan government, that they were willing to stop their hostilities until midnight, Dec. 31. Freslder.'. Gabriel Terra of Uruguay, who also is head of the Pan- American conferenca in session here announced last night Bolivia had accepted a Paraguayan proposal for a temporary cessation of hostilities It Was generally believed the truce would be caller' from midnight tonight at midnight, Dec. 31. During, the period of quiet in the triangular wilderness in dispute half a century, conference leaders hoped '.o see a permanent peace effected.

SENATE VOTES TO RETAIN SALES TAX i (Continued From Paso 1) of the present tax burden off pro perty. When Patterson contended that he was being misquoted Valen tine replied that "I was not quoting you. I was saying what you be Heved." Valentine denied the contention voiced yesterday that the rota! sales tax load would fall on the wage earner adding that "this is not a tax on the poor man, It is not a tax on the unemployed. It Is spread all over the state." The chairman of the interim committee said that 19 states so far have recognized the retail sales tax and adopted It as a principal source of new revenue. He declared the principle of the tax to be "entirely sound," asserting- that it can be supported by the theory of just taxation. End Revision Hopes. Rejection of the sales tax would, he contended, commit the senate against lifting any appreciable amount of the tax on property. He declared that if the sales tax were stricken, it would end the hopes of tax revision at this session so far as the committee bill was concerned. He criticized what he said had been an effort to label the retail sales levy as a "tax on the poor man, when it certainly is not." Patterson, in reply, asserted that lie did believe property taxes should be reduced but "only to the extent that justice dictates," and not to the extent that senate file 1 would ·provide. He also said that the "mere fact that some other states have levied a sales tax is no defense of the justice of such a tax," and explained that in some of these states the tax was an emergency measure only, intended to last but for a year or two. Returns to Argument. Returning to an argument advanced yesterday as to the departure from recommendations of the Brookings Institution for an Iowa revenue system, Patterson said the institution did not recommend a retail sales tax, "The interim committee has departed so far from the report of the Brookinga. institution for an Iowa revenue system, Patteraon said the nstitution did not recommend a retail sales tax. "The interim committee has departed so far from the report of the Brookings institution that it proposes to raise three-fourths "of the new revenue from a tax which the nstitution did not recommend, he ·aid. Senator Vincent Harrington of lioux City, proponent of gross in- ome taxation legislation, supported Valentine, explaining that the rea- "·on his gross income tax bill was ntroduced was because he did not believe S. P. 1 went far enough. Sees No Replacement. · In opposing- striking- of the retail sales tax he said that if the provis- on for raising $14,500.000 wore removed from the bill "there can be 10 replacement of taxes so far as ". F l is concerned." Before resuming Its consideration 3f tax revision in committee of the vhole the senate defeated a motion by Senator Klemmc of,, Winneshiek vhich would have deferred this sub- ect ur"\ later in the day. and permit consideration of other bills. On motion of Senator Gorge Wll- ·ion of Polk the senate agreed to make his motion for reconsideration of the vote by which his bill to amend the Beatty-Bennett law failed to pass a special order for 10 o'clock tomorrow morning. The bill vould assure cities the right of an- peal for exemption of fire department levies from the Beatty-Bennett law. PLAY AT CHURCH PUSHES UP FUND (Continued From l'«Kc 1) contribution of $15.

Kooser had not finished at noon, although nearly 80 exhibits bad been identified. Basis of Petition. These alleged transfers, which the state claims were unlawful and made at the order of Mayor Manning, form the basis of much of the ouster petition, fiied at the request of Governor Herring. Manning is charged with maladministration, misconduct and corruption. Included among the allegedly unlawful payments listed in the audit and Identified by Kooser, were 5151.88 to the W. T. Hall and company o£ Ottumwa for Christmas candy in 1932, paid from the park fund; $40 for Christmas lights displayed in the city park, and §78 for colored lamp globes, paid to the Fabritz hardware store of Ottumwa. Kooser also identified the list of warrants totaling approximately $9,000 paid for gas and oil. The state contends much of this gas and oil was used for private purposes by members of the city administration. Denies "Transfers." To hasten proceedings, Defense Counsel Merrill Gilmore conceded that the warrants listed represented payments from city funds named in the auditor's report. He refused to concede, however, that such payments were "transfers of funds." It was indicated the defense will contend that the payments were made from the wrong fund in some cases, but that there were no actual transfers of money from one fund to another. Special Prosecuting Attorney J. R. Jaques, appointed by the attorney general's office, also introduced as evidence numerous warrants and claims against the city of Ottumwa which were taken from the city clerk's office.
