CHAPMAN Des M o i n e s, (/P)--Agitation over proposed elimination of the Iowa income tax, at least for 1944, Thursday was drawing some of the public's attention away from the real reason for which the legislature was called to meet in special session this month, which was to provide votes for soldiers. Gov.' B. B. Hickenlooper summoned the legislators to meet Jan. 26 to provide means for receiving the votes of I o wans in the armed forces in this year's elections. He mentioned nothing else in his call, but there was an immediate demand from some of the members that the income tax also be considered. The regular session last winter eliminated naif of the state personal income tax due in 1913 and 1914. Despite the cut, collections were almost as large in 1913 as in 1912. If the tax now were eliminated entirely for a year, state finances still would be in "good shape," one state official conceded. The 3 point (sales-income-corporation) tax fund had a balance of $12,300,000 on Dec. 31. The balance in the use tax fund was 56,100,000, and the state general fund had an unobligated balance of approximately $10,000,000, the state comptroller's records show., Seven million dollars will come out of the 3 point fund in March, when the first-half homestead tax into the use tax fund to the extent of the deficiency. Many legislators have written to Governor Hickenlooper since the call went out for the special session. As the time approaches, attention will center on the message which the eovernor will prepare for delivery to the house aud senate in joint session as they begin their deliberations. There is just a chance, some observers believed that he might include some mention of the income tax situation, since he recommended a "substantial" reduction in his message to the regular session a year ago. Jake M o r e , chairman of the democratic slate central committee, in a press release, advocated repeal of the state income tax law. "The state income tax law is a burden that is not deserved or needed by the people of Iowa and if the republican party had the interest of the people at heart it would have demanded that this law be taken from the books during the regular session," M o r e declared. The law was enacted during Clyde L. Herring's first administration, in 1934. the sales tax will have added some to the §12,300,000 now in the fund. Withdrawals also are made from the fund to old age benefits. School groups, it is expected, would seek to have the income lax retained, as a possible source of funds for state aid. Veterans' groups are not expected to oppose doing away with the income tax, although they are vitally interested in doing something for the service men at the end of the war. "Most veterans are paying income tax, and Would be glad' to get rid of it. Any bonus probably would be paid by issuing bonds again as we did after the last war," a state American Legion of- f'ctal predicted. ' The reserve in the use tax fund, which represents 6 years' accumulations of the tax on new car sales and on articles bought outside the state for use in Iowa, is about equal to what would be lost to the 3 point fund in the personal income tax where dropped for a year. A bill to transfer $3,000,000 from the use tax fund into the general fund passed the house last winter, but was killed in the senate. If the 3 point fund should be insufficient to meet homestead tax credits in full, the comptroller is authorized, however, to dip RECORDER ENDS AN ACTIVE YEAR Deeds Show Increase; Receipts Also Higher New Hampton--Deeds recorded in Chickasaw county during 1943 totaled 532, an increase of 125 over 1942, according to figures released by James-R. O'Neill, county recorder. The figures indicate an increase o£ 30 per sent. A total of 199 real estate mortgages were recorded, an increase of 9 over 1942. Chattel mortgage and sales contracts declined from 1,276 to 834 during the year. Releases and assignments decreased to 473 from 579 the previous year. Marginal releases increased to 134 from 109 in 1942. Miscellaneous instruments increased to 364 from 349. Chattel mortgage releases totaled 1,290 for 1943 and in 1942 they totaled 1,440. Besides having more chattel mortgages released than were placed · on record for the second consecutive year, only 40 old age pensions were granted during the year, while in 1942, 58 pensions were approved. During 1943, 42 servicemen's discharge records were recorded compared with 44 in 1942. Gross receipts in 1943 were $1,277.55 and in 1942, $1,266.35. GETS DEGREE--Stantou L.
