MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE Kerry , DECLARES IT IS NOT ENFORGABLE Says Farmers Use Gas . to Visit Wife's Folks Des Moines, (/P)--Don L. Berry, Indianola, editor and chairman of the Iowa postwar rehabilitation commission, said Tuesday he thought the s t a t e legislature 'should abolish Iowa's gasoline tax refund law under which the tax is refunded to farmers for "non- highway" gasoline. "Most farmers are not crooked, but when a law is not enforeable, the violations increase and it becomes just like the old prohibition amendment," Berry said. He addressed 100 delegates to the central branch meeting of the Associated General Contractors of America. He told them gasoline issued for - tractors and engines and for which refunds were being paid was used in farmers' automobiles to "drive to town, go to basketball games or to visit the wife's relatives." Berry said the refund provisions of the law should be abolished in addition to increasing the gasoline tax one cent a gallon and expanding the truck taxes to include smaller trucks. Alternatives to a refund ban in order to support the $638,000,030 postwar road building program recommended by the commission would be a $10 tax on tractors and abolition of the automobile license lee reductions for cars registered · more than 4 times, he said. Either method would raise ?3,000,000 a year. Berry reported. NORTHWOOD Gl IN FAMOUS UNIT Sgt. Merle T.Russell Waist Gunner on B-17 An 8th Air Force Bomber Station, England--Sgt. Merle I.
