By THEODORE P. KOOP. Associated Press Staff Writer. DES MOINES, Feb. 23.--The Iowa legislature this week will make an effort to clean its desks for the spring vacation extending from Friday to March 9. Tax revision measures will continue to hold the center of attention, altho the University of Iowa investt- -gation will share the spotlight for popular interest. A public hearing Wednesday on the mortgage regis-- tration bill will place the last of the tax commission's proposals before the assembly. The senate tax committee is studying the income tax bill as passed by the house. Opposition to the bill is conceded to be stronger in the upper branch, and prospects appeared strong that a conference committee would be needed finally to bring' aa agreement on the provisions.

Dan Turner in his inaugural address, and another measure by Representative Frank Elliott of Scott county also is on file. His bill carries less sweeping powers.
