The second permits which will be effective for one year from Juiy 1, will cost the same fee. "The commission realizes that this may seem strange to purchasers" Cooper said, "but the commission is powerless to change the situation. The state liquor control law fixed the dates for the permits to expire and we have no authority to change them. "The date for expiration of the first permits waa fixed long before there was any definite idea as to the time when the stores could be opened. Drg« Purchases, "We wish to urge Iowa citizens to purchase first permits, however, and not to rely on bootleg supplies of uncertain quality during the interval before July 1 when the second permit goes into effect "We intend to see to it that the customer does not lose by purchasing the one month permit. We estimate that we will save more than the ?1 fee for the customer by supplying pure liquor at lower prices than the bootlegger could furnish." The books contain the purchasing permit, description, address, signature and. blank pages for recording the amount and kind of sales. The commission also must keep a record of all sales. 50,000 Expected. It is expected that upwards of 50,000 of the first permits will be sold. - In. anticipation of sales starting about June 1, the commission has sent a bulletin to physicians, pharmacists, veterinarians, dentists, san- atariums, soldiers homes, hospitals, colleges, homes for the aged and municipalities, stating that all permits for purchase of intoxicating liquors, except certain permits for sacramental wine, are canceled as of June 1. After that date these groups must purchase any liquor intended :or professional or institutional use irom the commission. They must obtain a. new permit costing $3.
