DBS MOINES, («·)---Wets and drys tangled in the Iowa house Friday over the question of local option and though dry forces were victorious on the face ot the final vote, those favoring sale of liquor-by-the-drink claimed the decision. By its action, however, the house overturned the adverse report of the liquor control committee on the dry bill 1o require local option for both beer and state liquor sales, and placed the measure on the house calendar. Proponents of the liberalizing program for straight sales o£ liquor in buffets, because o£ a ruling by Speaker La Mar Foster found themselves in the positior of having to support the drys anc reverse the committee. Conflicting Situation.

The vote could not be con- rued as wet or dry, house mem- ers said, because of the -conflict- ng situation. The vote was 66 to 36 to reject c committee report and thereby ustaiii Representative Harry E. lorrow (R) of Hopkinton and Representative C. E. Lookingbill R) of Nevada, leaders of house ry forces. The measure would not only re- uire local option for the sale of oth beer and liquor, but would evoke all existing licenses and vould limit all beer or liquor sales o the confines of cities and towns. 1'ass Other Bills. The lower chamber placed its pproval on a number of other ion-controversial measures and eceived several new bills. One of them would suspend 'rom II taxation, aged and needy ·esidents of the state who received old age assistance. The house added to its calendar without committee reeommenda- ion, the state aid school bill which n its original form would have a p p r o p r i a t e d 312,000,000 f o r schools. The committee cut the appropraition to $3,000,000. Also without recommendation was a bill levying a D per cent gross receipts tax on revenues of chain stores in excess of $200,000. Another bill to exempt residents living 5 miles from the Iowa boundary from the sales tax was given an adverse committee report. -1 OPENING INSTALLMENT MOUTHPIECE -.

MODEL PRAISES NEW IDEA THAT 7^* COMFORT IN DAINTY SHOES! square f o o t . o n his desk which he somehow managed to keep clear o£ documents was of a slightly different shade of dinginess from what he kniw to be its normal color. There was, too, ground for suspicion that the window behind Mr. Bells' office chair was letting in more light than usual: but this impiKc! such an unthinkable supposition that he at once concluded the spring sunshine was a little stronger t h a n usual and proceeded to draw the blind farther down. Mr. Bells was not a lover of strong light; it made his small, almost colorless eyes blink^under the powerful lenses of his steel-rimmed spectacles; there may also have been a subconscious realization that the activities of the f i r m of lawyers which was housed in these dingy two rooms on the ground floor of the building known as 274a, Rivev street, Hoth- crhithe. were of the kind upon which it was not desirable that the full glare of daylight should be thrown.

"Will you please speak a little more respectfully of our clients, Miss Harringay?" "Call me Elsie," she begged, "or 'old girl.' It sounds more cozy." She rose from her chair and strolled into the inner office, glancing casually at the big, flat- topped desk in the center of the room. On the blotting pad lay a small pile of letters placed thereby the managing clerk for the attention of Mr. Charles Stuckey the head of the firm. On the top of these was a cablegram, sent economically from America at the ni ght-letter rate. As the gir csugtit sight of this she opened her eyes wide in exaggerated astonishment. "Things are looking xip, Mi Bells-, aren't they!'" she called through the open doorway. "Who' the cable from? It can't be on of our old boys--they've never go any money!" Bells looks ingly from over the top of hi steel-rimmed spectacles. "A little less levity would to more in keeping with your posi tion," he said sternly.

The. girl pulled the cover from her typewriter. As she did so the telephone bell rang and she rose with a sigh and crossed to the wall where the instrument hung. "Hullo! . .
