The amount of time saved in 20 miles of driving in this unsafe manner is almost negligible and certainly is not worth the risk. For every yard of headway made by the "weaving" driver, scores of other drivers are thrown into confusion and the orderly progress of traffic is disturbed and delayed. Moving the greatest number of vehicles on a highway at the highest safe speed requires order. The weaving driver is a menace, both to himself and to others. Stay in line--be orderly--respect the rights of others.

"Rheumatism had caused me such misery for the past 20 years, was badly constipated too and had awful kidney and bladder disorder. I had been totally disabled the past three years and had been unable to evea go down town for weeks. Those pains over my body were almost unbearable at times, my kidneys caused me to get up many times at night and a good night's sleep was impossible. I tried everything, even went to a sanitarium but got no better until I finally began Gly-Cas. But now I can truthfully say T am feeling fine, improved in every way. I have just finished my second bos of this new remedy and came down town myself for more. Freed of those rheumatic pains, bowels regulated, appetite restored, sleep fine. Friends even remark as to how much better I am and they have noticed the wonderful Improvement in my condition. Gly-Cas was a medicine that was able to do what all others failed to accomplish -- in giving me my health. If anyone wishes a persona] confirmation call at my home or phone No 2978-J."

WARM SCRAP ON TAX REVISION IS NOW IN OFFING Features of Proposed Bill on Liquor Control Are Enumerated. By SPECIAL CORRESPONDENT DES MOI'NES, Dec. 19.--Like the famous good roads fight of 1917, the tax revision battle of 1933 in the special session of the forty-fifth general assembly may go down In history as one of the keenest scraps of the century. When in 1917 the house of representatives sat for days and voted 5-1 to 54 on good roads questions, the members got quite "het up." Now it is evident they are getting some rise of temperature in connection with the tax revision problem and some of them may burst before the thing ia over. And from this mist of minds may come candidates for governor and sundry other political offices. The most extended "round table" discussions ever held in connection with a legislative session in Iowa took place the past week in the senate. Interesting? Rather. No rules or little interference from the presiding officer, and a rough-and- tumble debate among the senators in which no holds were barred. Several tax bills were under fire, and the purpose of the "committee of the whole" membership was to bring out all the points for or against any bill. Thus those sponsoring or promoting any tax idea were called upon to explain many things, while those opposed shot their bills full of holes--if they could. We must say for the members they retained a. fine degree of good humor and amiability under fire. Not Before Christmas. Five days of explanation and clarification have now resulted in a move to co-ordinate the several bills and try and pass one real tax revision measure--but it cannot be done in the five days before members go home for Christmas. The senate excitement has attracted many housn members to hear the debates, but has not influenced the house to take up formal consideration of the tax bills qet. A motion to set Dec. 18 for this special order was sidetracked, members hoping the senate would do omething definite and save the house time and trouble. In the meantime house bills are being passed or killed, in regular order, just as though such bills have a chance of final passage. Representative L. D. Teter of Marion county has a bill, No. 41, that goes .straight across all fences and pltfaila to compel a replacement tax for the relief of real estate. ''Section 1--The total amount in dollars of taxes levied against any tract or parcel of real estate for or on behalf of any taxing district in this state shall not be more than 40 per cent of the average yearly amount in dollars levied against such tract or parcel during the five year period from 1928 to 1932 inclusive." If passed or Incorporated in any new bill, this would require that any new t \x would have to make up the balance needed for state, county, city and school funds. Liquor Bill to the Fore. The senate special committee'on temperance, which means liquor control, reported its bill Thursday for consideration, aid it is the talk of solons and their constituents in man_ informal groups. The bill reported follows very closely the report prepared by the governor's special interim committee. This bill provides: 1. For a llquuor control commission and prescribes its powers. 2. Provides for the sale of all hard liquors in state owned and controlled stores, prohlbithr consump tion. of liquor on the premises where purchased. 3. Permits hotels, restaurants etc., to sell 3.5 beer and 10 per cent wines, only where food is also sol and consumed. 4. Provides for election to be heh in towns and cities to vote on the question of permitting such sales (local option.) 5. Requires all purchasers to ob tain permits to buy liquor at $1 permit, to be good for one year. 6. Will levy no state tax on any liquor, but provides for state profil on sales. 7. Appropriates one million dollars for use of the control commis sion, to be used as - revolving 1 fund to be replaced from profits and per mils. And, of course, most of the pres ent prohibition statutes of Iowa are repealed. Asked today when thc-y though the liquor bill bill would out on th floor for action, some senators said not till after the holiday recess. Ant then the fireworks! Would Control Waste. Representative Durant of Winne bago county is sponsor of another attempt to control the dumping o sewage waste in cities and towns His bill, H. F. 159, would require waste treatment plants in all cities and towns before January, 1837, in accordance with the regulations 01 the state department of health. More than 150 telegrams were re ceived Friday by Representativ( Burgess of Woodbury county, and many by other members of the house In support of H. F. 176, which would make a Jaw licensing direci buyers of livestock, with regulation! as to weighing, grading and dock ing, in order to prohibit discrimtna tion and unfair competition in pur chases. The bill Is said to be slatec to come out of the committee for passage. Married women are still free to work, by reason of a report of the committee to postpone indefinitely a bill that would prohibit the hold- ng of jobs when they have other support.
