MASON The Little Schoolhouse" MRS, H, KELLER DIES SUDDENLY VOTE TO RAISE TAX ON LIQUOR House Would Levy 10 Per Cent to Aid in Paying Pensions DBS MOINES, (U.R--The Iowa house late Thursday voted to . saddle part of the state's old age pension cost on liquor drinkers by increasing from 2 to 10 per cent the sales tax on state liquor store products. The increased revenue, estimated at approximately 5800,000, also will be used' for emergency relief and homestead tax exemptions. The vote was 82 to 20, with 16 democrats and four republicans opposing the bill. It now goes to the senate. Provide Children Aid Meanwhile, the senate adopted unanimously a bill creating a division of aid to dependent children under the state welfare board. The measure is designed to raise $2,400,000- annually, with the state furnishing- $800,000, the counties a similar 'amount arid the federal government the rest. The vote was 50 to 0. Dependent children under 16 years of age could be eligible under the division, which would replace the present widows pensions costing $1,600,000 annually. ' "At the same time, the public safety department bill appeared to be riding a rocky road. Committee Disagrees A conference committee appointed Thursday to iron out house and senate differences announced it had disagreed on the bill-amended by the house to place the department under the attorney general instead of a commissioner. Appointment of a new committee will be necessary. Representative Dean Peisen, R., Eldora, house reorganization leader, said the committee had agreed ·on practically all parts of the bill .:rmt the house amendment. He · was possible a.compromise may yet be- reached. Named on Road Group The farm-to-market road bill, demanded by the senate to limit diversion from the primary to the secondary fund to $2,500, the next two years, also went to a conference committee when the house refused concurrence. Senate members of the committee named were K. A. Evans, R., Emerson; E. P. Donohue, H:, New Hampton; Sanford Ziegler, Jr. H Falrfield, and Charles B. Hoeven B., Alton. Before adopting the liquor tax bill, the house defeated, 25 to 67, an attempt to reduce the price of liquor-permit books from 51 to 25 cents.

Known facts do not fully explain why he violated his own formula of maintaining a Germany for Germans, and just at a time when he was -getting to a t r a d e agreement with Britain.. His obvious lack o£ enthusi- a sm l o r h i s task, as compared with his ebullient v e n - tures into Austria and Sudet- enland, is also an excellent economic authority recently returned from Germany is telling high authorities here that Germany could last two years in a war. According to this source Hitlers lack of cotton and rubber would ruin him, then but not sooner. Indeed he may not have taken all the booty he counted on in Czecho-Slovakia. An unconfirmed dispatch through regular channels says that the Czechs flew off to Hussia, Humania, and Poland wih , , w two-thirds of their 1,300 to 1 500 war planes before Hitler could catch them, although he moved in so fast his troops were almost in Prague when Hacha made the announcement agreeing German protectorate." to the Paul Mallon , · ... . , There is an idea in officialdom that there must be 0 / e '° ".than has yet come out ·inside dispatches have not been conclusive either, but they seem toward new deductions, Hitlers generals decided he could not afford to have the doubtful Czech army on his flank dur- ng the expected coming crisis between Italy and France. While he seized all the Czech foris at Munich, a well t r a i n e d and equipped Czech army led by the old legionnaire generals still remained as a possible powerful annoyance in case of trouble Therefore, he was forced to throw political discretion aside and pinch out the Czech-Slovakian army as a military pre- -mtion before facing France Intimations have come direct from abroad that he is even preparing to "strike at" France although those authorities who :ceived the U Other Motives Hidden Any, all or none of these mil- tary, economic and political motives could have drawn him into his campaign, but most authorities here suspect there, were also others that will develop in time aside from the obvious ones concerning expansion of the empire " , ev ' e ^" M y Czecho-Slovakia had o^faU because it was surrounded," The insiders wonder if Mussolini vill disclose his hand Sunday. Consensus is he will await a completion of General Franco's vk- tory in Spain before he does. (Coprriihl. Kin, r-.
