HUGH DAYEY SOU Phone 874 15 Second St. S. W. Automobile and Window Glass . . . Tlate Dresser Tops HAS TAX CASE IN ADVISEMENT Supreme Court Listens to , Arguments on Law's 1 Constitutionality. i DES MOINES, 09P--The lowa-su- p reme court had under advisement V\tednesday-a -case in which consti- tu.fionality of the state sales and income tax law, source of more than 16 million dollars annually, is chal- len, red. Ray P. Scott, Marshalltown at- torr. ley challenging validity of the three point tax law, argued before the '-high court Tuesday the law was unconstitutional because it was im- propth-ly passed. St.Hte tax board attorneys, head'ec by Chairman John Valentine, also an attorney, pinned their defense in a tech nical legal point--whether the suprenie court can consider only facts pu-esented to it in abstracts and arjniments filed in the case in arriviin;£ at an opinion. '"Salary Siash" Act. Scott i irgued that the present tax law was [passed by the legislature in the sai ae way it passed the "salary slash"' act, which the court helc unconstitu jtional primarily becausi of the wa;r in which the legislature voted on is 1 -. Challengitag this claim, Valentine argued "in the salary slash ac' there was iw record before this court showing the house-had ever passed the st inate hill which became the law aftei'. adoption of a. conference committee report reconciling differences bcitween the two chambers." He claimed, therefore, that al though the ; legislative journals showed the hmse had passed the bill, the high cc (tut did not take this fact into consi Ueration because it was not brought out in documents filed with the ciHurt in the case. Never Ifloted Tax. Scott's argumei its revolved around his claim that thi s senate never voted a 2 per cent s. Ues tax; that this levy was provide'i in the original house bill. He said following house passage, the senate amende a the house-ap. proved bill, and passed-the amended measure providin. E: a graduated sales tax ranging f r o m one to two and a half per cent. Then, he said, the house refused to' concur in the senate amendments. Scott contended th at after this the bill went to confe rence committee, which recommen ded that the original house bill be a mended in 22 respects, leaving the sales levy intact. Amendments Ad-tptcd. Subsequently, he said, the conference committee report mccommend- ng amendments was adopted, but ;he senate never voted on final passage of the bill itself. Clair Hamilton, special assistant attorney general who collaborated with Valentine in the stat'c's arguments, argued that the sen ate passed upon the two per cent lei 'y In ef- "ect because it adopted a co nference lommittee report which (lid not :hange the two per cent cla use. Hamilton said "by acceptir ig these amendments the senate receded rom its. own. amendment s and hereby voted upon the law as it was finally enrolled." Ill With Pneumonia.

CEDAR FALLS--Teaching sal aries in Iowa are on the upgrad For the past two years they hav shown a steady trend up from th low point of 1933-34, and the inde for the current year has taken sharper turn upward than last yea although it is still approximately 2 per cent short of the original salar obtained before the onset of the di pression in 1931-32. These facts were revealed'here b I. H. Hart, a member of the educa tion committee of the Iowa stat planning board and director of th Iowa state teachers college exten sion division, who is just comple ing a study of teaching salaries i Iowa made for the planning boart The study is based on official re ports from school superintendent in the state. It completes an in vestigation begun last year and cov ers a period beginning with 1931 32, before the depression struc suddenly at teachers' salaries, an extends through to the years 1935 36. Mr. Hart's report for 1930-36 cov ers 15,000 teachers and administra tors in 933 graded school systems and over 9,300 teachera in one-room rural schools in the state. Lowest in Eural Areas. Using the years 1931-32 as a basi for 100 per cent salary receipts, th study shows that all classes teachers and administrators receiv ed approximately 10 per cent sal ary reduction in the 1932-33 yea were struck down 30 and in som cases nearly 40 per cent in 1933-34 began to receive small salary in creases in 1934-35, and again i 1935-36 were increased to bring th general level within 25 per cent o the original salary. Teachers who suffered most ii the depression were those in on room rural schools. The maximutr reduction in 1933-'34 was that o 38 per cent for the one-room rura schools. Elementary teachers as whole were reduced 31 per cent Next to rural teachers high schoo principals and superintendents suf 'ered the greatest reduction, 1ha of 32 per cent in 1933-'34. For other classes of teachers and administrators, the maximum reductions ranged from 20 to 25 per cent. Sharper Trend tip. 'The outlook for the coming year seems to indicate an even sharper .rend upward than that for last ·ear," says Mr. Hart. "Practically every report of salaries fixed for next year indicates increases running from 10 to 20 per cent for all :lasses of teachers." Considered as significant in the eport was the finding that during the lean years the teacher in the arger school systems received a mailer percentage of salary .-educ- ion than those in the smaller chool systems. "Since these larger and wealthier districts employed he better trained teachers, it is ob- ious from the point of view of the eacher that additional training is good educational insurance;" de- Jared Mr. Hart, "because this class If teachers suffered reductions for ess in proportion than did their col- eagus with less training." For example, the average salaries )aid to elementary teachers in lf) 34 for five population groups were n terms of percentage of the origi- al 1931-'32 salaries as follows: First-class cities, 82.3 per cent; sec- md-class cities, 79.8 per cent; towns and villages, 68 per cent; consolidated school districts, 63.5 per cent and rural school districts, 62.1 per ent. GRAFT CASES OP TO HIGH COURT aken Under Advisement as Oral Arguments Are Submitted. DES MOINES, (/B--The Iowa su- reme court has under advisement ppeals which in effect will deter- nine whether the trial of Atty. Gen. Sdward-L. O'Connor, acquitted by irected verdict, will dispose of the Voodbury county "graft" cases. The high court heard oral arguments Tuesday on the appeals of Walter Maley, first assistant attor- ey general, and 31 other "graft" ase defendants, charged with oper- ting a gambling ring in Iowa. The defendants claimed District udge Earl Peters who presided at J'Connor's trial erred in refusing to uash indictments against them. Al- hough indictments against several f the defendants were dismissed fter O'Connor's acquittal, others ·ere included in appeals submitted o the court Tuesday. Unqualified Persons. In the appeals the defendants aim that unqualified persons ap- cared before the grand jury which cturned the indictments. Lou Salinger, Maley's attorney ·hose argument was adopted by the :her defendants, charged that Speal Prosecutor H. M. Havner was 16 "paid servant of Verne Marshall, edar Rapids editor who had a pe- jniary interest in seeing that in- '.ctmcnts were returned." The attorney claimed that the )ccuniary interest" lay in "rcbiit- ng possible libel suits through in- dictments and documents which would be filed with them." M. E. Rawlings, Woodbury county attorney who defended validity of the indictments, waived oral argument and submitted his case on documents previously filed with'the court. Went to Sioux City. Salinger said the evidence showed "early in March Marshall went to Sioux City and spent $4,000 to get proof of his claim that a statewide conspiracy to operate slot machines reached into the statchouse in Des Moines. "He went before the grand jury and demanded that the inquiry body give him lawyers to pursue the investigation and told them what witnesses should be procured. "He not only went before the grand jury but in his paper made flat-footed declarations of guilt of Malcy and others. Any time after March he might have been subject to libel suits. Therein lay his pecuniary interest." HAND RUNS UP AGAINST COUNCIL New Emmetsburg Mayor Not Able to Put Through Appointment.

Universal Simmer- Save Cookery uses little or no water, making possible the retention of vitamins and body-building mineral salts. With Simmer-Save Cookery the food is not boiled dry and burned. It eliminates pot watching, also saves about 35% of the gas on top food cooking per meal. The Universal also gives equally as great advantages in broiling and oven cookery as it does on top burner cooking. In all manner of cooking, the Universal gives extra leisure, added economy--it is time-releasing. '·'I .si 1 I sfj i - '*·# / : '*$· i ' ' il /-· Hi* ^yijjijj^^
