MOVE MADE TO END DEADLOCKS Would Boost Membership in State Senate and House by One. DES MOINES, W--To end parly deadlocks such as marked the outset of the forty-seventh general assembly in Iowa, a move was under way in the house of representatives -to increase by one the membership in that chamber and in the senate. Should the constitutional amendments pass this and the next legislative assemblies and then be ratified by a vote of the people, it would be incumbent upon the legislature to re-district the state to permit the membership increase. Limited to 108. At present" the house membership is limited to 108, and at the start of the session rin organization deadlock- prevented normal legislative routine for two weeks while the 54 democrats and a like number of republicans jockeyed for strength to elect a speaker. The democratic, side of the house finally won when a republican bolted party ranks. Three constitutional a m e n d - ments covering the increases in membership were introduced, in the house by two democrats, Rep. E. J. Maniece of Estherville, and Thomas Stimpson of Anamosa. One amendment proposes the allocation of a second seat to a larger county to be determined later. The second of the proposals would increase the senate from 50 to 51, and the third would authorize the house increase to 109. To End Stalemates. Representative Maniece, urging the necessity of membership revision as a means of ending stalemates by providing an uneven number of seats in both chambers, said the change also was imperative due to the heavy responsibility on the senator from the forty- seventh district who, represents five counties. They are Clay, Dickinson, Emmet, Kossuth and Palo Alto,' all in northwestern Iowa. This district, he pointed out, now embraces a total population of more than 125,000, and is "top heavy" for proper representation. Representative Stimpson believed the county which might be considered for the addition of a second member in the house is Wapello. This county is one of the ten largest with but one seat in the lower chamber. RICEVILLEMAN SHOOTS SELF Used Stick to Discharge Gun He Fastened in Vise.

Surviving Mr. Haynes are his wife and two married daughters and one son. The shooting was believed to have occurred about 11 o'clock in the morning. Haynes was about 50 years ot age.

DES MOINES, UP)--Speaker La Mar Foster of the Iowa house said Thursday he had requested an immediate report by the two outstanding contest boards in whose hands rests the bi-party balance of power. He said he had been assured by Representative Thomas Stimpson .(D) of Anamosa,: and Representative W. J. Johannes (D) of Ashton, that their respective committees would prepare to submit an early summary and recommendations in the Clinton and Harrison county districts, respectively. In Closed Caucus. Foster and other democratic house leaders, it was learned, participated in a closed caucus Wednesday night. It was understood reliably that the question of disposing of the contests, the last two of 9 started when the legislature convened January 11, was the principal topic o£ discussion. Foster said he believed that majority and minority reports would be submitted from both districts, and that in the Harrison county district one precinct in Logan would probably be thrown out by the contest board. In this district H. L. Peyton (R) of Logan, seeks the house seat o£ Representative R. G. Moore ot Dunlap, democratic floor leader. May Retain Seat. If the house sustains the disqualification of the Logan votes on the grounds that judges and clerks of the precinct violated the law by not remaining on duty at l)ie polling place, Moore will re- laoin his seat by a sizable margin. When the canvass was made .. . - · · \ but two votes separated the contenders. In the Clinton contest where but three votes finally separated Representative W. N. Jiidd (H) o£ Clinton, and Milton Peaco (D) of Clinton, the board was expected to report in favor of Peaco, a former member, with recommendations he unseat Judd on the basis of the slight margin given the democrat by the contest board.
