OPPOSITION TO BILL REPORTED Marks First Clash in New Legislature - Des IWoines, (Â£}-_The 1st display in the house this session of sharp opposition to a bill arose Thursday over a measure which Would legalize partial forgiveness of a debt. Sponsors of the proposal finally agreed to submit it to a committee. Before and after the controversy the house passed 9 measures and received 20 o t h e r bills; all ol them were minor or merely provided for technical revisions of existing laws. The debt bill would provide that when part payment of an obligation was made with the written understanding t h a t it satisfied the debt, then the full obligation was removed. Present law does not recognize such, agreements. Sponsors of the measure said it .was needed to legally clear such situations. They said such a law had been upheld by the California supreme court and that it would be a benefit to both creditors and debtors. Rep. Albert Steinberg (R., Ames), a "lawyer, declared the measure would strike at the heart of the sanctity and law of contracts and obligations. He declared the house should not make it impossible for a creditor to later collect the full obligation if the financial circumstances of the debtor improved. Meanwhile the senate, by a vote of 41 to 0 adopted a house- approved proposal that clergymen who offer the daily prayer in the legislature receive So for each service or 5 cents a mile to and from the capital, whichever Is greater. Clergymen sometimes offer the prayer in both houses, in which event they would receive a total of $10 or the mileage. , The senate received only 3 bills in a 45-minute morning session. One of them would increase from $300 to 5900 the property tax exemption on household furnishings and equipment and another would extend such exemption to members of the armed forces during the period of their active service, whether or not the property exempted was actually being used by them or their families during that period. Both measures were introduced by Sen. George Faul (R., Des Moines). The 3rd-measure, by Sen. Boss R. Mowry (H., Newton), provides that persons engaged in open cut or strip mining in Iowa must post a $10,000 bond with the county treasurer guaranteeing the replacement of surface soil and any loss of tax revenue due to the operations. The bill also provides that no one may have more than 5 acres open at any one time and that failure to operate commercially for 12 months shall constitute abandonment.
