DES MOINES, W)--Trie Iowa senate Wednesday confirmed the appointment of Dick R. Lane of Davenport, republican member of the state liquor control commission, to succeed himself for a six year term. The senate, in a one hour execu-. live session, also approved the reappointment of Dr. Walter L. Bier- ring of Des Moines as state health commissioner and . of Leslie O. Ross, (D) of Sidney to an unex- pired term on the state board of parole. There was talk of opposition lo Lane's reappointment by some of his own party. members, several republicans declaring prior to ,the executive session that Lane was not the "party choice" for representation on the liquor commis- YOUNG TRAMPS' LIFE DESCRIBED Thomas Minehan's Book Reviewed by Mrs. H.E. Walls. CLEAR LAKE--"Boy and Girl Tramps of America" by Thomas Minehan was reviewed by Mrs. H. E. Watts for members of the Civic league at the February meeting in the city hall Tuesday afternoon. The author, a professor of sociology in the University of Minnesota, dressed himself as a tramp and lived among persons of that class to obtain first hand information on their modes of life and manner of thought. Critics of the book describe it as a sidelight on American life which brings out the deadly blow to American youth of the national depression. Mrs. Watts (raced the history of vagabondage throughout the world and told of its effects upon the human race. It is a condition which has come down from earliest known history and invariably follows war. M. E. Minister Speaks at Dedication of Schoolhouse Says Important Work Now Average 1G Years. Professor Minchan stated the largely by physical Travel was mainly by sion. This opposition vanished, however, several senators reported; when Senator D. W.

LIQUOR SALE BY DRINK SOUGHT Legislative Bill Sponsored by 3 Republicans and . 3 Democrats. DES MOINES, (fl j )--Sponsol-ed by three democrats .and three republicans, a bill to revise Iowa liquor laws permitting local option sale .of liquor by the drink started through legislative channels Wed r nesday. The measure, originally made public by Representative Phil Roan' (R) of Fort Madison, 'was filed in the senate by Senator Howard Baldwin of Cascade, Senator "M. X. Geske of McGregor and Senator T. F. Driscoll, Farmington, democrats; and Senator D. W. Kimberly of Davenport, Senator Frank C. Byers of Cedar Rapids, and Senator George L. Parker of Independence, republicans. Bill to Committee. Lieut. Gov. John Valentine said he will refer the bill to a committee for immediate study. Backers of the measure, which would retain the present state liquor store system but provide licensing of sale of liquor by the drink under local option, said it was designed lo "curb the growing abuses" of present liquor laws. Geske recalled that a measure carrying somewhat similar provisions was passed by the senate in the last session, but did not receive the approval of the house. Can't Predict Success. "I can't predict, of course, what the success of the bill will be," Geske said. Byers described the measure as "entirely non-partisan" and said he believes that "it contains the safest, soundest method of liquor control suggested thus far." "I am confident that it will be favorably considered in the sen- ale," Byers said. He added, however, that "what the house decides will determine the fate of the bill." reasons given for leaving home by the young persons with whom he associated were many but hard times, broken homes, ill-treatment and .dislike of school were most numerous. The majority of the tramps were boys and girls averaging 16 years of age and most of them had never been in Sunday school, club work, scouting or other organized movements for youth. Leadership was determined courage. box-cars and life developed along tribal lines. Many live in jungle camps during the warm, months but take to soup kitchens and charities ol the city in winter. Accommodation to be found in charitable institutions were described as extremely poor and the food unpalatable. Professor Minehan felt that the youthful unfortunates were discriminated against in -most of these places and also by the civic authorities. They were given neither the food nor help accorded older persons. · .- ··· · Committees Report One of every 20 persons is girl and a boy and a girl traveling together often pose as brother anc sister.
