TURNED ATTENTION TO OTHER MATTERS WEDNESDAY AUSTIN, March 8.—<fi>>—While pposlng forces in the fast ap- roachtng conflict over now taxes uifitly mapped battle plans, the jglslature turned Its attention to- ay to other problems. Rep. Alfred Petsch of Freder- cksburg obtained printing In the House Journal Information rela- ve to fire Insurance premiums nd losses In each Texas city, "You gentlemen will be as- ounded," the house veteran said, at the results of lack of competl- on In the fire Insurance busi- ess." Isn't It true," Inquired Rep. jcighton Cornett of Clarksvllle, that Insurance company profits omctlmes are as high as 600 per ent." "I want this Information to be rlnted and you gentlemen to raw your own conclusions," 'etsch replied. The Froderlcksburg representa- ivo privately expressed hope the eglslature would take some "con- tructlve, effective action" as a esuit of conditions disclosed by he information booklet, which was prepared by the state fire in- urance department. At the request of a group of onstituents, Rep. Mason D. Harell of Smlthville offered a resolu- ioii asking congress to enact the 'ownsend old age pension plan, {arrell emphasized he simply was ntroduiilng the resolution because he had boon asked to do so and wanted the legislature to aot as t saw fit. The proposal was re- erred to the appropriations committee. Rep. W. J. Qalbreath, theWhar- 3n blacksmith, won house consent or transfer of his bill dealing with property tax renditions from he revenue and taxation commlt- ee to the committee on stock and stock raising. Oalbreath charged the revenue and taxation jroup had "put over a smooth, streamlined- kangarooing on me.' Senate Wrangles Over Texas Steer AUSTIN, March 8.— (IP)— The senate pitched into one of the most spirited parliamentary wrangles of the session today—over a resolution authorizing the highway department to place the Insignia of a longhorn steer on 1040 auto license plates. Vote after vote was taken on various Droves and when the smoke cleared the resolution had soon amended to substitute a None Star foe the steer. Then the senate shied away from flna action. The measure was tabled subject to call. Already passed by the house— which favored the steer—the res^ olutlon was defended in the sen ate by Senator G. H. Nelson of Lubbock who asserted the in slgnla would ,be good advertising at no additional cost of manufac turlng the plates, which are mad in the penitentiary, "When people in other states think of Texas they think of th< longhorn steer," Nelson said. Up jumped Joe Hill of Hen derson with the query: "Don't you think they mlgh think these days of a melodian a guitar or a rolling pin " Senator Rudolph Welnert o: Seguln wanted to know why no require all auto owners to ad vertlse their registration numbei In newspapers. 'How about an oil derrick o: pine tree," quipped Senatoi Gordon Burns of Huntsvllle. Then he launched an attack 01 the resolution, claiming it~wouli cost $10,000 additional to make th plates largo enough for registry tlon numbers and insignia. : He asserted adoption of th> amendment would set a preceden and organizations seeking bluebon net, orange and other insignia would swamp tho legislature' with pleas.' Senator Allan Shivers of For Arthur attempted to kill the res olutlon outright which resulted in a 15-16 vote. Senator Nelson finally moved tc table the resolution for consider ation later and the senate agree'c Want Regulation Itinerant Peddler AUSTIN, March 8.— (/P)— Grain produce, grocery and, other mer chants beseiged a house commit tee last night with pleas to reg ula,te itinerant, or gypsy, ped dlers with licensing fees an surety bonds to avoid destruction of established business.
