OPTIONAL DRILL WHERE VIKING SANK Vote Comes After 7 Hours of Debate by House Members. DES MOINES, March 19.,W--A jroposal for optional military train- ng in Iowa's state educational institutions has been erased from the legislative calendar for this session. The house late yesterday da- fcated the Torgeson-Pattison bill to remove compulsory drill by a votj of 42 to 63. The vote came after almost seven lours' debate in which more than a score of members spoke. Just before the vote, the call of :he house which had been removed it the start of the afternoon session, was again placed in effect, so hat -all members were in their seats, except three who had been excused because of illness. Discussion hinged on compulsory raining in its relation to preparedness, peace and educational curricula. , · · v Proponents of the bill argued that optional training was a movemeul. "or peace , and that compulsory Mining did not have a place in the educational program. Opponents contended that compulsory training was in line with the national defense act and taught obedience anJ discipline. · This was the second time such a bill has been defeated, in the legislature. In the 1929 session, the senate committee on military-affairs voted indefinite postponement on the measure and was upheld by a vote of the members. if*- ^-^S^r^f^t^ Hofcse""' Hjjip shows the .scene of the wreck of the ill-fated sealing vessel Viking, which was destroyed by an explosion in the. outer reaches of White Bay, Newfoundland.

', The senate again deferred action on the bill to provide funds for the legislative investigation of the university, placing it at-,the foot of. its calendar.
