A splendid selection of fine COATS and SUITS in wanted New Styles for Juniors and Misses DRESSES Drastically reduced for this event BARON'S By GERALD BOGAN Iowa Daily Press Writer DCS Moines, (IDPA) —Iowa legislators who replied to an Iowa Daily Press association survey favored by a margin of 3 to 1 the proposal of the road study committee that farm-to-market road funds be divided equally on an area and need basis. But the margin in favor of placing all road use funds in a single state account was favored by only a 2 to 1 margin. The study committee recommended that 48 per cent of road money be allocated to the primary system, 30 per cent of the secondary fund to counties on an area basis, 7.5 per cent each of the farm-to-market road to counties on an area and need basis and 6.5 per cent to cities and towns, on a population basis for street construction. The committee also suggested that all revenue from use tax, registration of motor vehicles, motor vehicle fuel tax and license fees, compensation tax and sales tux from motor vehicles, trucks and essential equipment be placed in one fund earmarked for load use only. The committee estimated that the use tax could net $3,470,000 annually and the sales tax on motor vehicle equipment (such as tires and accessories) would bring $4,990,000. In the past these have not been earmarked for road use. The committee report said that these changes would provide enough income to make it unnecessary to impose an additional gas tax. Favorable Answer On the equal apportionment question here's the way the legislators answered the IDPA questionnaire: House—yes, 42; no, 15; undecided, 10; no answer, 12; senate—yes, 13; no, 3; undecided, 3; maybe, 1; no answer, 6. On the road tax fund question the result showed: House—yes, 37; no, 18; undecided, 9; no answer, 17. Senate—yes, 12; no, 6; undecided, 3; no answer, 5. The committee report, commenting on the apportionment, Lyoutk for RALLY Saturday, Jan. 8 7:30 P. M. Sunday, Jan. 9 3:00 P. M. 4uestipn, which always has been major one for legislatures to ecide, said ''There is a substan- ial variation between the estimat- d and actual income. "It is de- irable that a method of distribu- ion be used that all road systems eceive a pre-determined share." Funds Change Under the present farm-to-mar- tet plan thr amount available ither on an area or need basis hanges from year to year. It is his question which always ouches off a south vs. north 'civil war," southern Iowa legis- ators maintaining that more •noney should be available to counties on a need basis. Several members of the assem- Dly said they favored distribution of farm-to-market road funds on in area basis only. Others said it should "definitely be on a need basis." Two legislators replied 'The road question is a big one and will require lots of study." ["here were few comments on the over-all road tax fund proposal but 2 legislators said the idea 'needs more study." The proposals were among several changes recommended by the lighway study committee follow- ng a 2-year investigation of road aws and road financing in the state. The committee outlined a 20-year road building program, which would include more money for farm-to-market and secondary roads and less money for superhighways. The report will be available when the legislature convenes. It already has been given much publicity in the Iowa press. It no doubt will result in long debate once the legislature begins consideration of the overall road problems.

Phone 1489 Washington, (/P) —A bi-partisan drive developed in the house Tuesday to peg the price supports of 6 basic farm crops at 90 per cent of parity. Rep. Pace (D.-Ga.), introduced a bill to repeal the new farm law which permits these price props to drop to as low as 60 per cent, if surpluses accumulate. The sliding price scale adopted by the 80th congress is due to go into effect next year. Simultaneously, Rep. C o o 1 e y (D.-N. C.), who is due to head the house agriculture committee, told reporters he wants the basic crops supported at 90 per cent, provided farmers accept "reasonable" production controls to prevent huge, price-depressing surpluses. Wins Support ' The repeal move won immediate support from Rep. Jensen (R.- Iowa), who said he favors a parity floor of "no less than 90 per cent" for the basic crops—wheat, corn, cotton, tobacco, peanuts and rice. Rep. Hope (R.-Kans.), retiring agriculture committee chairman, said the farm legislation enacted by the last congress "needs a restudy." He did not indicate his stand on the' parity issue. (Parity is a price standard for farm commodities calculated to be equally fair to farmers and consumers). Sliding- Props Under the sliding support system set up by the new farm law, the price props would range high in times of scarcity to spur production, and low when the crops were abundant to discourage market-glutting surpluses. Cooley said this plan protects the farmer most when he needs help the least and least when he needs it the most. To Attend President Truman's Inauguration Iowa City, (U.R)—State Senator LeRoy S.

County Fair Moves Government Cuts Off VA Funds at ISC Ames, (U.R)—President Charles Friley of Iowa State college said Tuesday that the federal government has stopped payments to the school for veterans' education costs following a disagreement over the formula for figuring the amount due. Friley said the payments were stopped at the end of last summer. He said the government was asking the college to refund what it contends were overpayments over a period of 2i years- The amount involved is about $550,000, he said. Iowa State has figured the government's share of veterans' instruction costs under the GI program by a formula set forth in the veterans administration's own manual, Friley said. He said the VA approved the contract under which the payments were made. The VA raised no objections during the 2fc years in which the system was in operation, Friley said.
