14 MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE FHIDAY, JANUARY 26, ia« LEGISLATURE SEEMS NORMAL Plenty of War Thought. Behind Peacetime Bills Des some respects you would never know a war was being;fought to set in on opening sessions of the Iowa legislature-so familiar'are some of the bills that are' being introduced. Already the liquor bills that are Invariably tossed into the hopper have been introduced and are awaiting discussion. One would do away with the state's privilege of putting a liquor store "wherever it-wanted and make this a local option proposition. Another is for local option on the sale of beer. Still another would separate the sale of beer from places where food is sold. , . . Actually, though the.legislature seems to be treading the same old path, there is plenty of thought of war. Many of the legislators, have sons arid daughters in the service. Those who haven't, for the most part, are just as anxious to prepare Iowa for -the postwar future as those ; who'have. ' The fight.will be over how Iowa should be prepared to face that future. As this is written the question 'of .extension of the 50 per cent income tax reduction is still high on the list.of "firsts" and on that question seems to hinge much of what will take place with regard to appropriations for many of the things Iowa actually needs. House sentiment seemed .to tie for extension of the reduction. In the senate; the sentiment was not so pronounced. BUDGET REPORT Studying the budget report sub' mitted to the legislature by Gov. Robert D. Blue, former'.Gov. and Senator Bourke B. Hickenlooper and Comptroller C. Fred Porter, are members of both houses this week. · .· ' · · . ' ' - .

' ' . ., In past legislatures this was the bill that'often did not see action until late in the session and held up the legislators in'the closing days when they wanted to get back home. As a result, it never studied too thoroughly.. However, for the last 2.sessions, and again this time, the report has been prepared and placed on ,the desk of each member early enough in the session so it could be studied carefully. The report recommends appropriations of $19,181,962.73 to operate the state's various sub-divir sions for each of the next 2 fiscal years beginning July 1. The 1943 legislature appropriated $18,623,- the ways and means committee Rep.. George E. Farmer, Cedar Rapids, chairman of judiciary No 1 committee and Rep. Ted.Sloane Des Moines, chairman of judiciary No. 2.committee. Kuester and Lane automatical!; will serve as house members p the legislative interim committee through their appointments, whil Felton will designate either Farm er or Sloane 'also to serve on th'a committee when the session end Chairmen "of other committees include the following representa tives: Aeronautics, Andrew .

The report also showed that the state's general fund--from which apropriations are made' unless otherwise designated--w ill contain about $9,700,000 on July 1 and the state will take in approximately $31,500,000 for; the biennium starting on that date. This was an attempt to show, the legislators that unless some money is transferred from other funds into the general fund, the state will be using more money than it is putting into the general fund, if anticipated programs are carried but by the legislature. DON'T WANT JOBS Roy T. Pull en. Spencer, a member of the state board of control, has given notice that he is not in the running for re-appointment to his job. A. A. Coburn, Cherokee farmer, and a member of the GOP state central committee,' is said to be willing to accept it. Melvin W. Ellis,. Charles City, superintendent of the state banking department, is another who Is said to be more interested in returning home to manage affairs there than to continue the 56,600 state position he now holds. There's a rumor about--arid it's · only a rumor -- that Highway Commissioner Fred Gilbert, State Center, -former GOP state chairman and a banker -- might be transferred to Ellis' spot with Wil-. lis M. Y o r k Madrid, present state chairman, given Gilbert's highway commission position. HOUSE COMMITTEES Speaker Harold.Felton, Indianola, appointed 55 standing committees in the house and most of them were organized and working this week. Some will not have much business during the- entire session but others will be busy almost every day.. Felton named Rep. G. T.
