MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, FEBRUARY 8 · 1937 FIVE BANK NIGHTS TO BE LEFT ALONE Subcommittee Not to Make Favorable Report on Lottery Bill. By GEORGE MILLS Iowa Daily 1'rcss Bureau. DBS MOINES -- Bank nighls will continue to operate In Iowa theaters if the subcommittee handling the anti-bank night bill in the Iowa house succeeds in having its way, it was learned here. The bill introduced by Representatives Thomas L. Kephart (D. Clay) and William Freimcr (D. O'Brien), would declare the theater prize system illegal as a form o£ lottery. Referred to the house judiciary committee, the measure was sent to a subcommittee o£ three headed by Representative Phil Hoan (R. Lee!) Roan would not comment on reports that the subcommittee did not intend to report out the measure. He limited his remarks to the statement "It is sleeping peacefully at present."

Other subcommittee members are Eugene H. Reilly (D. Dubuque) and Ed R. Brown (R. Polk.) Bone of Contention. The measure is the bone of contention in a powerful lobby battle in the Iowa legislature. I£ it ever runs the gauntlet of the legislature, the bill will call a halt to a system which has stimulated theater attendance to startling heights on certain nights of each week in nearly every Iowa city and town. The stimulation usually is a cash prize to the lucky person whose name is called. The mere fact that the bill may never come out of the subcommittee or the larger judiciary committee does not mean that its foes have killed the measure. If the authors so desire, they may take the bill away from the committee after it has been .under consideration in the judiciary group for ten days. Would Not Comment. Representative Kephart would not comment,, but other sources indicated he may withdraw the bill from the committee next week if it is not reported out for duetocoiareli ? «abypn os wall 0 wc.l .iptltm jnwhcijie.
