10 MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE MARCH 24 1931 LITTLE REDUCTION IN OFFICIALS' SALARIES EXPECTED FEES TARGET OF MANY MEASURES Few Bills Recommended by Committees; Several Are Killed. By CHARLES V* WARREN , Associated Press Staff Writer , DES .MOINES, March 24.--Salaries and fees of Iowa's public df- ' flcials appear likely to undergo little, If any, reduction despite the large number of bills on the subject introduced-in the legislature. The compensation of state, county and local officials,, even of the legislators themselves, has been the target of more than a score of measures. Nearly half of them already have met their fate thru failure to pass, withdrawal or indefinite postponement. Few Are Recommended Most of the remainder appear destined to die a lingering death in committees. Few have emerged with the recommendation that they pass. The prompt action of the house in dispatching Representative Victor Feller's proposal that the law, passed in 1929, increasing the salaries of state officers by 51,000 a year is illustrative of the treatment of · number of the bills. Felter's bill was defeated, 51 to 48. Has House Attention An effort to repeal the $500 legislative expense account act of the last session still has the attention of the house, where Representative Leroy Shields' bill is on the calendar after being returned by a committee without recommendation. A similar till by Senator B. M. Stoddard was indefinitely postponed in the senate, and a third, which also would have increased legislators' salaries In 1935, was withdrawn. ' '. Mileage charges made by public officials have received considerable attention and legislation definitely fixing these rates still has possibility of enactment Of these proposals the Reed-Strachan-Bonnstetter bill in the house-and the Irwin bill in the senate have been recommended for passage by committees. $5,OOTSSIS CAUSED BY FIRE 19 Head of Cattle, 9 Horses Lost in Blaze on Farm Near Nashua.
