BACKSTAGE IN IOWA POLITICS Democratic Party May Be Liable for Lots of Sales Tax-as.Result'of Victory Dinners . - · ' · · · 'l Staged i n Iowa. By GEORGE MILLS . Iowa Daily Press '-Bureau Since the proceeds from the $5t a plate victory dinners are not to be listed as campaign contributions, is the democratic party U able for a, lot'of sales tax 01 them? . .. ·'. : ' -. ; Judging by ordinary eating placi standards, the sales tax on a ?5(, dinner would be $1 and'.$20 cents on the $10 kind. At that "rale, Ihe state would have §170 coming on the. Des Moines .celebration alone Also, it is against the law for a merchant-to absorb the sales tax Therefore, should the democratic national-.-committee have publicized its Iowa celebrations as the $49 dinner, plus ?1 for sales tax? EMPLOYER OF TWO Iowa's unemployment com'pen- · sation board is supposed to be made up pf one standard bearer 01 labor, one of industry and the third a representative of the general public. Former Senator. C.iaude Stanlev represents industry. 'In his Corning law office he is reported to be an employer of two persons. * » * DISSENSION ON ROADS Those ancient road improvement rivals, the highway commission vs. the county governments, are squared off for a real scrap over the -farm-to-market program in the Iowa house. But all is ,not harmonious in the county ranks. ' Last week the commission" and some of the county representatives ' worked out a compromise by which the counties, along with the highway commission, would have the right to pass judgment on larm-to-market contracts. . _ After the compromise had been included in the bill, at'least part of the county. representatives changed their minds.- The lattor group .thus is continuing to fight the measure. Other counties are opposing this change 'of front. Reft ports .since have filtered through of a sweet battle raging in the inner councils of the county officers association. The bill provides for $650,000 of federal inoney for farm-lo- market roads, the- counties to match this money with (he* road cash .they receive from gasoline tax collections. The fact that the highway commission keeps a general supervision string on the grants is the nub of the county opposition. The commission, however, says federal rules prohibit sny other Kind of. procedure.

Highb'all-Over-the Bar Is being wrecked. '~ ·Phil-Roan's drink bill in th house provides for local optiot Most'of his wet cohorts are -op posed to it.' They say it will ^dr up two-thirds of Iowa immediate !y. And before long the who state would be a-hard liquor Sa hara 'again..' ··· ; · - · ' , ' .'. : .' In the senate, a liquor-by-the drink bill \ylthput local option on file. Its supporters admit has np:chahce of passing,·'that" was filed .to -save the face of lh pro-liquor forces. -The '. lalte measure will-give Uieni a chanc to be on the wet side in one vote even if the bill is beaten. Besides,- the wets seem to wan to "let well enough alone." "We enough" being the illegal but ac ceptable liquor-by-the-drink sys tern prevalent in wet countie no\v." . . . .* * * PERSONAL FRIENDS Great and good friends p£ Gov ernor Kraschel are Stale Treas urer Leo Weg'man and State Sen ator I. G. Chrystal. And both o the latter come from Carro" county. But, political neighbors, thoug they be, Wegman is anything bu friendly to the idea that the sena tor is material for a position o the Iowa highway commission Observers report-that this compli calion is another df the many be setting the .governor in decidin where the highly desirable high way appointments shall land. * . . * « - · BALANCE SHEET With the legislature more thai nalfway home, the balance shee shows: ' . Laws- passed and signed, 21 Laws passed wliich affect the gen eral public in greater. or less de gree,. 12. Cost of session to dale 5150,000. Cost per law of genera application, $12,500. The. elephantine slowness of th legislative. wheels.' creates -joy ii at ledst one quarter,, among th ·obbyists who want to keep tlv legislature from . treading on th economic- toes"of the groups 'they represent. It's a cinch that all the neasures affecting the so-called interests" cannot . be considerec md passed now because some big Jattles o£ general nature remain to be fought in the .remaining sb weeks.
