The house then voted to life the special order on two osteopath bills and plunged into debate on the county assessors' -bill, which had been started Thursday. The move vas unexpected, leaders having decided last night to postpone consideration of the assessor bill until Monday. A bill to codify laws governing Jie deposit of state sinking funds n banks almost got lost in a maze of amendments before being passed by the senate, 33 -to 9; jn a much e.vised form. Provide No Interest Amendments adopted provided hat no interest shall be p ayable u'ring the months of March, April, September and October, and that eposits shall draw interest at the ate of 1 per cent instead, of 2 per ent a year on 90 per cent of the ally balance. Senator E. J. Wenner, Blackhawk, ponsor of the bill, sought to dis- wn it in its revised form. ^ He un- uccessfully proposed that' the en- cting clause be stricken.

The house then took up he. Simmer - Donlon - Bonstetter mendment to make the auditor K officio county assessor and to llminate township assessors. Deputies and field men would be ap- ointed by the auditor. Creates New Officials. Sponsors of the * amendment claimed the county assessor plan would create 99 new officials and that the auditor could do the work. They also contended the amendment guaranteed that home government would not be removed. Representative H. M. Greene, Pottawattamie, opposed the amendment on the ground that the auditor's office has been a general dumping ground for county work. He said he believed tho farmers would derive more benefit from the assessor bill than any' other measure. Representative J. H. Johnson, Marion, and Representative O; E. Husted, Madison, joined in the argument. Representative O. J. Reimers, Lyons, sponsored an amendment to the amendment limiting the appointment of deputies by the auditor to as many as necessary. A bill to tax vending 'machines was introduced by the senate committee on tax revision, it provides that firms operating such machines must pay $100 a year, and also provides county' fees and a fee for each machine operated. Passage of the 10 per cent amusement tax bill was recommended by the committee. SECOND MEMBER OF FLEET SINKS (Continued From rn^o 1. trated food, medical equipment and supplies. SEARCH USELESS ST. JOHN'S, N. F., March 20. UP) --Captains .of sealing vessels reported Co St. John's today that they had searched every foot of ice with'- in 22 miles of the scene of the Viking disaster without finding a trace of the 28 men still missing. They declared further search useless The weather report from Horas island, near which the vessel burned and sank Sunday, shows east by northerly gales with thick fog along' the coast. Navigators familiar with the lopality doubt the wisdom of sending airplanes to search for he missing. Air expeditions, it was felt here, would -needlessly endanger the lives of flyers, and would accomplish nothing. AH except the most seriously iu- jured of the 127 survivors had been transferred from Horse island to the sealer Sagona today.
