HOUSE VOTES TO PUT MARIJUANA IN NOXIOUS LIST Knudson Joins Debate in Urging Passage of Bill to Eradicate Weed DES M01NES, W»--Marijuana, the narcotic-producing objective of a federal and state eradication drive, would become a "noxious weed" under a measure which received Iowa house approval Thursday. The lower chamber passed the marijuana bill a f t e r hearing charges that the plant had been seeded for "commercial purposes" in at least one Iowa county. Vote on the measure was 90 lo 6, with some opposition coming ··from representatives who feared , expanding the scope of "noxious weeds" banned by law would increase the expense of operatin" farms. Patches Are Discovered Representative John Knudson (H.), Marshalltown, said he had been told that marijuana had been planted on a commercial scale in one Iowa county. Representative R. R. R. Dvorak (R.), Toledo, iater explained that planted marijuana patches were discovered near Tama and Chelsea a year ago during his term as Tama county attorney. Both acreages were found along the Iowa river, he said. The planters never were discovered, he added. Is Habit Forming Marijuana, a habit-forming substance made from the leaves of the so-called Indian hemp, has been the subject of an eradication dnve by federal, state and local Iowa officials the last several years. Marijuana is knovvn among enforcement officers as "loco weed." Its possession in practically all cases is a federal offense. The house bill, which now must go to the senate, would require road maintenance authorities and farmers to kill out the growth along with other plants classed as noxious weeds. Expense Is'Assailert Representatives Axmear, Bcel- er, Cooper, Johannes, Ritchie and Wichman voted "no : on the bill. Representative F. J. Ritchie (R), Marcus (Cherokee), said proposed eradication of the weed from rough pasture Jand and in the brush along rivers would constitute a "confiscatory" expense _.. ''*-* farmer. ' ; \, ' _ · · ' \etK was a gunman out ^J UilSolUe of that roueb. country," shouted Representative Herman Knudsoj* {R.j, Mason City, "the law ivcipla attempt to go out and get hiai. There is potential mur- rter in patches of this weed on ^ "".practically every farm in the state." Representative Oscar Johnson, (R), Kanawha, asserted passage of the bill would prevent "exporting" the weed from the state for processing purposes in small outside laboratories. Representatives o£ smaller counties joined forces to defeat a bill by Representative Curtis Gregory ( R ) . Adcl, providing for appointment of judicial district probation officers to handle juvenile delinquents. Gregory warned that juvenile offenders "soon are graduated from bicycle thieves to automobile thieves or worse." Tho measure, he contended, would save the taxpayers money in the long run by rehabilitating youthful offenders before they become hardened criminals. F. ONTJES PICKS UP LOOSE ENDS OF EXAMINATION Indications Seen of End of Anderson Stay on Stand Indications were seen Thursday that F. A. Ontjes, claimants' counsel in the suit against the McNidcr estate, was nearing the close of his direct examination of Peter Anderson, secretary of the Northwestern Portland Cement company, who has been in almost constant attendance in the courtroom since Feb. D. Mr. Ontjes was evidently picking up loose ends of Jlr. Anderson's testimony Thursday, moving j-apidly over a number of subjects, most of which had been | gone over before. I The testimony concerned the business of the local cement company, its purchases of tractors 15 years ago. how deposits were made with the First National bank, who wrote the company's insurance policies, from whom coal was purchased, the salary of F. E. Kecler as treasurer of the company up to 1923, changes of title to the company's stock and attorney fees paid in connection with tax disputes. Mr. Anderson has spent most of the last five weeks on the witness stand introducing company records requested by Mr. Ontjes and explaining information recorded on them. He was first subpenaed on Feb. 9 and has testified intermittently since, his testimony being interrupted on several occasions in order that others could take the stand. What's the vise?
