TWELVE FARM-MARKET FIGHT NOT OVER Kraschel Says He's Ready to Tell People "Exactly What Happened." · . DES MOINES, (/P)--Gov. Nelson G. Kraschel Thursday promised "If necessary" to tell the people of Iowa "exactly what happened" to the farra-to % -rharket road- bill \vhich he vetoed Wednesday. The governor appeared in a wood to fight . for the farm-to- market road program which he was among the first to advocate and which he claims was "emasculated" by. house amendments to the original senate bill. The features to which the governor so strenuously objected was the proposed diversion of primary road money to the secondary road fund.-The amendment was proposed by Hepresentative Dewey E. Goode of Bloomfield, a republican, and had almost .solid republican support. . - · ' . , . Reply by Republicans. . Kraschel's comment Thursday ·followed a reply by Senator William S. Beardsley of New Virginia and Representative Robert D. Blue of Eagle Grove, both, republicans, to his veto message. "It's .significant," the governor declared, "that the republican house leader and the .republican senate leader rush- to the defense of the Harmful amendments to which I object in the veto message. · -· "It's- apparent my proposed larm-tb-market road program has fallen a victim to partisan-politics.

Nelson G.

DES MOINES, (ff)--Possibility the Iowa legislature would consider a radical-change in its-present state liquor monopoly to provide for sale -of liquor by the drink, dimmed Thursday .as the house of representatives voted decisively to-reject a move to take up the proppsal next Tuesday. Both houses took final action on the bill to make permanent the state's 2 per cent sales tax,'sending it to the governor for approval Minor amendments were added to the measure which, if it becomes a law, will prevent discontinuance of the sales tax on April 1. · When the house turned down the move to take up the liquor proposal next week, it voted 89 to 7 to adopt a motion by which 52 measures given adverse reeom- nendations by standing commlt- ees will be dumped into the vastebasket. ' . . In 76th Place. Such action was taken prior to he formation o£ a sifting commit- ee which Speaker.La Mar Foster s expected to name this week, and ntp whose hands will go all-legis- ation for further consideration by le house. With the Hquor-by-the-drink bill n seventy-sixth place on the cal- ndar, friends of the measure con- eded it could not be reached be- ore the sifting committee is orrried and which from that time o the close of the session, formu- ates the daily program of legisla- ion. . - . . - . Representative Phil Roan (R) of ?ort Madison, author of the amended liquor bill, said the move o place it before the house as a special order was "ill advised," but was hopeful it could be reported out later by the sitting'commit- 'ee. Add Minor Amendments. The senate, however, added several minor corrective amendments which sent the bill back to the iiouse for concurrence. This was given by a vote of 83 to 1. : House discussion of the move to Immediately consider the liquor bill was halted abruptly when Rep. Roy J. Sours (R) of Charles City, said: . "This may be important, but there is far more important legislation awaiting action, and there isn't a man in the state of Iowa but who can get a drink of whisky if he wants it." The house then staged a heated battle over immediate consideration 6f another:bill to permit hospitals lo issue co-operative insurance, policies which would insure contributors of free hospitalization. On Third'Reading:. Rep. F. L. Engel (D) of Davenport had taken the bill to .third reading when several members voiced emphatic objection to its provisions, Rep. Sours charging :hat in its present form "it opened :he way in Iowa for gross graft on the party of insuring companies." At one juncture in. the cross-fire of debate, a lobbyist for the bill was ordered from the house floor, and.;the word battle did not end until a motion was made to defer action. House leaders considering the governor's veto of the farm-to- market road bill studied the executive's message but' Rep. C. L lice (D) of Delata, said he be- ieved no move would be made to :onsider new legislation until the louse, and, senate .had voted on overriding the veto. No .Santa Claus.

TO FORM YOUTH BICYCLE CLUBS Minnesota Highway Patrol Aroused by Four Deaths and-50 Injuries. ., ST. PAUL--Aroused by four deaths and more .than-50 injuries to. boy and girl bicyclists in Minnesota in the first ten weeks of 1937, the Minnesota highway patrol, under the direction of John P. Arnoldy. chief, and with the approval of N. W. Elsberg, state highway' commissioner, has ordered immediate organization of juvenile bicycle clubs throughout the state, the Veterans of Foreign Wars co-operating. It is proposed .that clubs be former for the-promotion of safety in every part of the state, under elective leadership and with judges or county attorneys as advisers. Rules and regulations are being prepared in Mr. Arnoldy's office and will be available' for free distribution shortly. The clubs, which would be similar in many ways to school police patrols, now sponsored by the American Legion, .would be expected to adopt 1 a series -of so- called "commandments," some of which call for members to swear not to ride bicyclles two on a machine, not to ride two abreast, to stop at all stop signs, give proper signals for turns, etc. Violation of these commandments would bring n hearing before each club's own officers with possible impounding )f machines by police and sheriffs. Mr. Arnoldy believes such clubs would reduce juvenile accidents to a large extent and in this he has the "indorsement and co-operation of officers of the Veterans of Foreign Wars, who will assist the state patrol in organization meetings and training."

TO WOMEN WHO MAKE g| R iy GOOD' COFFK r Of all the coffee your grocer sells, Butter-Nut is most delicious. It has something in its quality of flavor the "fairly good" coffees fail to catch--' a certain charm and grace--a subtile excellence that sets it above the rest.' In the first place, Butter-Nut uses only the very choicest coffees. Then those coffees are blended and treated in a special way before roasting to bring out the full richness and mellowness of the flavor and eliminate natural acids. That -process gives Butter-Nut a very decided flavor advantage. It is called the Special Mellowing Process. Your ability to make delicious coffee will improve the moment you change to the new Butter-Nut Coffee. BullerNuL 1 SPECIALLY M E L L O W E D j Coffee HO, HO.'
