*. ·--Ji Afc "- MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, FEBRUARY 18 · 1937 3TVE FINAL ACTION ON CONTESTS DRAW MOST INTEREST Assembly Prepares Final Consideration of Moves to Unseat Members. DES MOINES, (/P)--Final action on legislative contests drew the center of attention in the Iowa assembly Wednesday as that body prepared lor final consideration, and disposal, it hoped, of two long extended moves to unseat incumbent members. It also had before it a proposed move to "place teeth" in Iowa's beer laws, a detailed measure to take all beer licensing from the hands of cities and towns and to place such licensing under a state board of malt beverage control. The measure was filed by Representative J. P. Gallagher (D) of "Williamsbuig, chairman of the liquor control committee which on To Alkalize Stomach Quickly On all sides, people arc learning Ihat llic way to gain almost incredibly quick relief, from stomach condition arising from ovcracidity, is to alkalize Hie stomach quickly wilh Phillips' Milk of Magnesia.

AISO IN TABLET FORM: Each liny tablet in the equivalent if a tcospoontul of genuine Phillips' Milk oC Magnoeia, P H I i i I I- n ILL. l MILK OF MAGNESIA Monday night held an exhaustive inquiry into beer control conditions in the state. It was indicated the plan would come before the lower chamber as a committee program. Charge Irregularities. The contests were brought again before the house in committee of the whole as a special order of business at 10 o'clock. In disposing of one or two of the original nine contests, the house had bt-fore it a majority report by the Harrison county board headed by Representative W. J. Johannes (D) of Ashton who presented a recommendation seating Representative George Moore (D) of Dunlap, and a minority report by two republicans favoring the seating of H. L,. Peyton (R), Logan grocer. Both -sides charged irregularities in crediting votes to the two men, with the majority faction holding that Moore won his right to the seat by virtue of 63 votes after irregular ballots had been disregarded. The minority side on the other hand held that Peyton was entitled to the office by a margin of 17 votes. · Contemplate Final Vote. The other report covering the contest in Clinton county involving- the house seat of Representative W. N. Judd (R) of Clinton, was also to reach the house in the form of. majority and minority recommendations, but whether this could be disposed of Wednesday remained in doubt as the assembly reconvened. Members contemplating a final vote on the contests were confronted with several perplexing situations. For instance, it was explained, iE the HaVrison county contest is disposed of first. Representative Moore will not be entitled to vote, thereby giving the republicans a possible edge. On the other hand if the Clinton county contest should come up lirst Representative Judd would not be entitled to vote but Moore would, thus giving the democrats the margin. There were other confusing angles attendant upon these possibilities. Three major bills--the homestead tax reduction proposal, the farm to market road bill, and a bill to reduce state income taxes were on the senate calendar. Debate Tax Bill. Senate sponsors of the homestead bill obtained consent Tuesday to defer action in order to have amendments printed. The farm to market road bill was held up to permit senators to study the proposal before it is debated on the floor. Tha Irwin-Driscoll bill to reduce state income taxes was to be debated as soon as Senator T. F. Driscoll (C) of Farmington, who was ill recently, returns to his seat in the senate chamber. The senate highways committee introduced in the upper chamber a bill authorizing the state highway commission to improve, maintain and reconstruct primary roads inside all cities and towns. City councils of a number of Iowa municipalities have urged that such a bill be adopted. The present law provides for state maintenance only in towns of 2,500 or less population. Municipalities argued that primary road traffic has destroyed some streets Simple Way to Ease a Cold Two Quick-Acting, Quick-Dissolving Bayer Aspirin Tablets with a Glass of Water The modern way to case a cold is lliis: Two Bayer Aspirin tablets the moment you fed a cold coming on. Then repeal, if necessary, according to instructions hi the box. At the same lime, if you have a sore throat, crush and dissolve three BAYER tablets in one-lbird glass of water. And gargle with this mixture twice. The Bayer Aspirin yon lake internally will act to combat fever and the pains which usually accompany colds. The gargle will act as a medicinal g.irgle to provide almost instant relief from rawness nnd pain. It is really marvelous; for it flcl.s like a local nnesUielic on l!io irritated of your (hroat. Try this way. Your doctor, we know, will endorse it. For it is a quick, effective means of combating .a cold. Ask for Bayer Aspirin by the full name «t. your druggist's -- not for "aspirin" aloue.
