DINTS TOSS,, ST, IE State Wide Planning Conference to Be Held at Ames on April 16 j SEEKS REVIEW OF TAX RULING )'Leary Attacks Claim of Operating Line With No Profit. FORT DODGE--Claims of the Yssociated Railways company, ·hich is seeking- to buy and dis- lembcr the Minneapolis and St. Louis road, that the M. and St. L.'s eccivership history shows it cannot e operated successfully as a unit, vere protested by the carrier's rcc- rd last year, according to L. M. O'Lcary, traffic expert and a mcm- xi- of the M. St. L. executive de- ensc committee which is co-ordi- lating the oppositiom to the sale iropusal. "In reply to a questionnaire of the ntcrstate commerce commission." Mr. O'Leary pointed out, "Associated Railways, in stating the essence of its plan, says: 'Twelve years of operation under receivership have shown that the M. and St. L. railroad, as a whole, cannot produce sufficient net revenues to meet op- crating and capital expenses." Points to Earnings. "The years of receivership mentioned do not prove a thing. Last year, with gross revenues of only '$7,610.887, the M. and St. L. had railway operating income of 5552,991, an increase of $198,437 over 1934--accomplished after paying off an equipment trust of $100,800. paying $·124,000 in current bills, buying $107,000 in ties for use this year and absorbing a wage increase of $297,140, as well as making additions and betterments on 22 miles of trackage in Iowa acquired from the Burlington. The road is now discounting its current obligations." Mr. O'Leary called attention to the following gross earnings of the M and St. L. during its receivership: 1923, $16,605,121; 1924, $15,095,871; 1925, $15,074,273; 1926, $14 733,725; 1927, $14,413,216; 1928, $14450,531; 1929, $14,700,505; 1930, $12 725,670; 1931, $10,294,963; 1932, 57854,700; 1933. $7,073.397; 1934, $7,514.180, and 1935, $7,610,67.1. Arc Increasing Business. "Based on the showing of lasl year," he added, "what would the railroad have done with the gross of $10,000,000 to $16,000,000 it enjoyed in nine years of its receivership ? "Policies now in effect, such as locating new industries on M. and St. L. trackage and the vigorous campaign for off line business, indicate that gross revenues can well approach one million dollars a month, or $12,000,000 a year. With the efficient and economical operation--responsible in no small part for the remarkable showing last year--continued, the M. and St. L.'s financial position will be materially changed."

ANN KINGSLEY Marshalltown Lawyer Files Argument With State Supreme Court. DBS MOINBS, (.T)--Ray P. Scott, Marshalltown attorney, filed with the supreme court Thursday an argument challenging constitutionality of the entire Iowa three point tax lav/--providing- for income, sales and corporation income levies. Scott declared in his argument that "the Iowa senate "never did pass section 38 (the sales tax) as now contained in the bill, and never did pass a bill fixing a flat tax of 2 per cent on gross sales." The argument was a part of the filings in Scott's appeal from a Marshall county district court decision upholding constitutionality of the income tax. Calls Law Invalid. In his argument Scott contended the entire law was invalid because it was "not properly passed" by the legislature. He cited a previous ruling-of the court which upset the "salary slash" act on the ground of improper passage. Scott said the legislature adopted a conference committee report bn amendments in controversy between the house and the senate without taking a final vote on the bill itself. Passed by House. Specifically 'he charged that the conference committee report recommended "that the bill as passed by the house be amended" and that the amendment adopted by the legislature concerned only the house bill and not the hill passed by the senate. He said the original house bill imposed a 2 per ccn.t sales tax, but the senate amended it to provide a graduated tax upon gross receipts of merchants starting at 1 per cent and increasing to 2'i per cent. This was the ground for his contention that the 2 per cent sales tax in force never was passed by the upper chamber.
