TRUCKING BILL ESCAPES SNARL Amendment to List Farm-Market Trucks in Measure Defeated DES MO1NES, W--The truck bill affecting the taxes and practices of 94,000 Iowa carriers escaped a traffic snarl in the Iowa house Tuesday when the lower chamber defeated an amendment seeking to list farm-market trucks in the measure's definitions. Representative John Knudson (R), Marshalltown, offered the amendment which would have defined farm-market trucks to include livestock, dairy, feed and farm machinery haulers. violate the lasv," lie declared. He also scored the ton-mile tax system by which the large " f i x e d ] route" truckers arc assessed. . "These big operators are .supposed--I am saying 'supposed'-to pay the ion-mile tax," he said. The bill revises the entire truck licensing system, seeks to abolish the ton-mile tax and substitute a "certificate fee" of $375 in its place and would place outside truckers on a reciprocity basis when using Iowa roads. Kisse Disputes Contentions Pine charged that one group fighting passage of the bill was inspired by "one man attempting to hold his particular job as an organizer." Representative H. F. Risse (11), Mitchell disputed Knudson's contentions by saying he had been asked by Mitchell county truckers to support the bill as presented. Pine obtained house approval The move was voted' down.

Charge "Clever Manipulation' 1 In a speech ringing with allegations of "clever manipulation" and the "stigma of big business interests," Knudson declared inclusion of the definition was the first and necessary step to grant drastic concessions to the farm-market hauler. At one stage he inferentially charged the bill's sponsors with seeking to choke off debate. Knudson said the lower license schedule he was backing granted the farm-market hauler cheaper rates because much of the latter's travel is over mud roads, "while the rest of these fellows whiz by on improved roads." Assail Law Violations Pine went in for oratorical fireworks himself when he told the house the bill was necessary "because DO per cent of the truckers are chiseling on their loads." "There aren't 10 per cent of the truckers in the state who do not farm' 1 from the terms of the bill PLAN SALE SATURDAY T1TONKA--Tlie Dorcas Sunday school class of the Methodist church will hold a sale of baked goods at the Earl Stott Hardware store on Saturday.
