EIGHT MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, MARCH 17 1936 $30 TAX REFUND VETOED BY Fl Djckinson Bill to Set Aside Statute of Limitations Is Rejected. WASHINGTON, (/P)--President Roosevelt vetoed a bill allowing a $30 tax refund which was claimed after the statute of limitations on such a claim had expired. The refund would have been allowed to W. W. Cook of Pella, Iowa, in settlement of his claim due him on two brokers' special tax stamps. The bill was introduced by Senator Dickinson (R.-Iowa). "On several occasions," said the president in his veto message, Use it daily for bab/s skin "there have been submitted to me other bills which proposed to except certain taxpayers from the operations of the statute of limitations pertaining to the revenue laws by extending the time for the refunding of certain taxes to such taxpayers. On those occasions, I expressed my accord with the enacted policy of congress that it is sound to include in all revenue acts, statutes of limitations, by the operation of which, after a fixed period of time, it becomes impossible for the government to collect additional taxes or for the taxpayer to obtain a refund of an overpayment of taxes. "Again I must express rny belief that tfce field of special legislation should not be open to relieve special classes of taxpayers from the consequences of their failure to protect their claims for the refund of taxes within the period fixed by law." BACKSTAGE IN IOWA POLITICS By GEORGE MILLS Iowa Daily Press Bureau. Some candidates throw mud, start whispering campaigns about their fees. Others virtuously abstain from even mentioning competitors. For downright enthusiasm about his opponent in the primaries, however, Leslie O. Ross of Sidney set some sort of a record last week. In his announcement for secretary of state on the democratic ticket, Ross had this to say about Mrs. Miller, present occupant of the office: "The office of the secretary of state (under my administration) would be conducted with the same efficiency and breadth of vision which has characterized the regime of the present democratic incumbent.' Not that all is joy and thanksgiving in the attitude towards Mrs. Legislative Lounges Serve As Strikers' Beds Legislative lounges serve as beds for wives of WPA strikers in the state senate at Madison, VVis. WPA workvs on Wisconsin projects, dissatisfied with their wages, went on strike and "marched" on the state capital, taking their wives with them. Here the wives are trying to get a few winks of sleep. Miller. The third term Ross question, [or instance, is certain to be broached in the campaign. # # * O'CONNOR OUT? The boys on the inside, who have wen getting up early in the morning- to clock the state's political race lorses in practice runs, are expect- ng Ed O'Connor to come out this week with an announcement that he Affenfion!

Not that these same observers expect Speaker John Mitchell to coast into the democratic nomination for attorney general without opposition. They're looking for Matt Cooney of Dubuque, member of the state parole board, to take the field against the Fort Dodge entrant. * * !K EARLY BIRDS. Democratic county · conventions were supposed to have been held all over the state last Saturday. Mahaska county democracy got its dates mixed, held its convention the Saturday before. If it had been an election instead of just a convention, political writers no doubt by this time would have been comparing Mahaska with the state of Maine. The eastern state votes some days ahead of the rest of the country. * * * I GILLETTE RUMORS | Request for nomination papers for congress by Congressman Guy Gillette of Cherokee, ninth district legislator, quieted for a time reports that he would be a candidate for the democratic nomination for United States senator. Now senatorial talk Is filtering out of every democratic political chin again. One democratic wheel- horse, for instance, tells of being approached to circulate Gillette papers for senator. It is the-plan, he says f to get -the required number of names to file the -congressman's candidacy for the senate. Gillette recently said he would not voluntarily be a candidate for the democratic senatorial nomination against Herring, Utterback and Whiting. Whether or not he would be willing to be an "involuntary" candidate is the question buzzing in political circles here-. * * * BENSON TO RUN? Reports indicate that C. A. Benson, former state senator, is flirting with a candidacy for secretary of I agriculture on the republican ticket. The Clayton county farmer was beaten by Haugen for the congressional nomination in the fourth district in 1930 and for electon by Congressman Fred Biermann in 1934. Seth Silver of Cahtril is the only candidate for the agriculture nomination on the G. O. P. side of the fence. * * » TICKETS FILLING UP Hopes of some candidates that they might be nominated for state offices without opposition continue to dwindle as new hopefuls enter the lists. State Treasurer Leo Wegman hasn't anybody out against him so far, and John Mitchell more or less ' temporarily has nobody to contend with for the democratic nomination for attorney general. Except for a supreme court vacancy, for which no one has announced, every member of the administration party now has competition, including Kraschel whose foe for the democratic nomination for -governor is C. F. Lytle, participant in the Sioux City probe. Secretary of State Mrs. Miller, who was all alone in the field on both tickets at first, now not only has a democratic foe but also two republican ones. And a third G. O. P. aspirant, former Fire Marshal John Strohm, is said to be weighing the pros and cons of running for the nomination.
