At Chillicothe he met a printer, William Gary Jones, and on _ March 31 signed with him an" agreement that Jones should be foreman of a print shop in Du Buque.

BILL OFFERED BY KANAWHAN Johnson Also Has Measure to Prohibit Hiring of Married Women. DES MOINES, (fr)--Represcnta- ivc Oscar Johnson, (D) of Kana- vhn, explained Wednesday his bill, vhich would require Iowa motor- sis to show they can pay accident damages in order to obtain an au- omobile license, is aimed at cut- .ing down Iowa's highway accident toll. 'While it would insure victims of accidents for injuries or damage by the motorists to blame," Johnson said, "it also would have he effect of keeping the drunken drivers off the road. "In addition, it would keep people from driving these $25 wrecks which are mechanically unsafe." Lists Minimum Requirements. Johnson's proposal would require every driver to tile nolice :hat he carried liability insurance or post bond showing his financial responsibility before a county treasurer could issue him a license. Minimum liability requirements would be $5,000 for one person killed or injured, 510,000 for two move-nnd $1,000 for property damage. "Insurance companies, under this bill," Johnson said, "would not nsure drivers whose records show they are prone to figure in accidents, or drink or drive cars in dangerous mechanical condition. Cites Death Toll.. "In addition, they undoubtedly would require all motorists they insured to' show proof of their capability to drive by passing the state motor vehicle department's driving test." Johnson, pointing to last year's highway death toll o[ more than 500, declared that "something must be done to stop this slaughter. " "If," he said, "a person isn't responsible enough to obtain liability insurance, he is not responsible enough to drive." Also Offered Uy Johnson. State officials checked the marriage records of their employes following introduction in the house of a bill which, in effect, would prohibit the state from employing virtually all married women. The bill was introduced in the house by democratic representatives Oscar Johnson of Kanawha and Otto Feuling ot Farmersburg. Johnson and Feuling, both married men, explained that their proposal is designed to make ttv "state's money go just as far as possible toward supporting as many people as possible." The measure, while it docs not specify married women, provides that no married person who has a husband or wife regularly employed at a salary of more than ^1,500 a year, shall be employed by the state or by any political subdivision. Dependent Children Considered. "It's possible," they explained, "that it might prohibit some married men from working for the state," but both agreed that it probably would affect more married women. In addition to the 51,500 a year limitation, the bill allows an additional income of $250 a year for each dependent child. It further provides that a person whose income with that ot either husband or wife is $2,000 a year plus the additional allowance for each dependent child also shall be prohibited from state employment. Employes of state penal and charitable institutions, however, are exempt.
