By GERALD BOGAX Iowa Daily Press Writer DCS Moines, (IDPA) —An Iowa Daily Press association survey of (owa legislators indicates that "here is little likelihood of the general assembly eliminating food :rom the state sales tax. Asked if they favored elimina- :ion of sales tax on food, 54 of the 79 house members who answered ;aid no, 21 answered yes, 2 were undecided and 2 did not answer. Among the 26 senators who responded, 14 said no, 9 said yes, 2 were undecided and one did not answer. Governor-elect .William- S. Beardsley advocated exemption' of food from the sales tax in his primary and general election campaigns. He has indicated he will ask the legislature for support of his plan, which he maintains is vorkable and will bring relief to ;ome families which spent a large Dortion of their income on food. Dne of the biggest objections to food exemption is that it would complicate bookkeeping on the part of grocers. However, several stales do exempt food items. Iowa is one of 27 states which collects a itate sales tax. They range from one to 3 cents. Suggests Reduction One house member suggested that if any reduction is made it should be an across-the-board reduction to one per cent, or one-half the present tax. Iowa democrats support such a plan. Another representative said if any change is made the first tax collected should be raised to 41 cents "which would eliminate the tax on bread and milk." The Iowa tax is collected on all sales of 15 cents or more, the bracketing system being set oy the tax commission. The brac- <ets have not been changed since the tax first was collected. One senator said he would favor .he plan "if finances will permit," and another suggested that medicinal and burial expenses be added to the exemption list. There have been indications in some grocery association circles that Beardsley's proposal will meet strong opposition not only from some food dealers but from other associations such as hardware dealers, clothing merchants, and implement dealers who will try to RADIO SERVICE «6IST.ST.,S.E. .TEU.IO79, DON'T SPARE THE GREASE or you'll spoil the car.

Record Collection Sales tax collections for the first 11 months of this year totaled $47,031,163, and a new record for the calendar year is in sight. Oi this amount, an estimated $11,000,000 was for food items, which under the Beardsley proposal would be exempt. One veteran legislator said he 'as opposed to all sales taxes as violating one of the fundamentals of a fair tax—ability to pay. Said the legislator: "The sales lax was saddled upon the people of Iowa by democrats, and republicans fought several losing campaigns on that important issue. Now. even though one is opposed to the sales tax on principle, he is confronted with the fact that the millions of dollars it raises are committed and necessary to operate our state government. The sales tax helps pay old age assistance and the homestead exemption. If we remove the sales lax on food it would seem that we will have to find another source for such revenue and what could this source be but another tax? Eliminating the sales tax on food is a splendid idea, but it comes rather late." Over 500 Bills Are Introduced Delegate Calls for Hawaiian Statehood Washington, (U.R)—An avalanche of bills—perhaps more than 500— fell into the house hopper on the first day of the 81st congress. Hawaiian Delegate Joseph Farrington introduced 24 bills. They included legislation to grant statehood to Hawaii and citizenship for residents of Guam and Samoa. He also proposed a one-year extension of the law permitting soldiers to bring their foreign brides here. Rep. John W. McCormack, (D.-Mass.), the democratic majority leader, introduced legislation to reform the procedure under which witnesses are called before congressional committees. His resolution would allow any person to file a sworn statement with'any committee if he believes his reputation has been damaged by previous testimony. He would also have a right to testify in his own behalf, to call his own witnesses, and to cross-examine those who testified against him. Others who introduced bills included: Rep. L. Mendel Rivers, (D.-S. Car.) to repeal the federal tax on oleomargarine. Bus, Trolley Operators in Strike Vote Milwaukee, (U.R) — Milwaukee was threatened with a complete Sieup of transportation Tuesday as city bus and streetcar drivers announced they were ready to strike "at a moment's notice." The drivers voted 2,184 to 248 Monday night to authorize a strike at any time to back their demands for a 15 cent hourly wage increase. Officers of the AFL Streetcar and Busmen's union said the walkout could come suddenly. As the union geared for a par- alysing strike, the Wisconsin employment relations studied the possibility of invoking the state utility anti-strike law to prevent a breakdown in transportation. The union cut its demand from 34 cents an hour to 15 but the best the transport company offered was 7. If the strike comes, it will be completely effective. The company's president said no arrangements have been made to keep the service going in spite of a walkout. Pleads Not Guilty of Evading Taxes Des Moines, (£>)__otto J. Hill, Des Moines apartment house owner, pleaded innocent in federal court Monday to a charge of evading $45,880.40 in federal income taxes. Judge Charles A. Dewey set Hill's trial for the April term of court. Hill is at liberty on a $5,000 bond. RALLY Saturday, Jan. 8 7:30 P. M. Sunday, Jen. 9 3:00 P. M.

Chet Holifield, (D.-CaL), Monday introduced a bill designed to establish a new code of fair procedure for the house un-American activities committee. While Holifield's resolution was aimed particularly at the un- American activities committee, it would apply to all house investigative committees. The resolution calls upon Speaker Sam Ray burn to appoint •* 7 member special committee—4 democrats and 3 republicans—to make a study of committee investigative procedures. The special committee would report back to the house by March 1 with its recommendation. Holifield's resolution is in line with an administration-b a c k e d drive to clip the wings of the un- American activities committee. Gunman Pays for Murders Goes to Death in Electric Chair Columbus, Ohio, (/P) — Robert Murl Daniels died in the electric chair Monday night—a far different youth than the cocky gunman captured 5 months ago at Van Wert, Ohio. The 24 year old Columbus slayer was pale and visibly shaken as he walked into the death chamber at Ohio penitentiary, leaning heavily on the arm of the Rev. C. V. Lucier, prison Catholic chaplain. Gone was his cockiness and natty dress displayed shortly after his capture July 23 at a roadblock 6 miles northeast of Van Wert. His pale face stood out from the drab prison clothing he was wearing Monday night when he paid with his life for the triple murder of John Niebel, 52, head of the Mansfield reformatory farm, his wife, Nolanda, and their daugh- er, Phyliss, 21. Daniels posed and talked readily 'or cameramen and reporters vhen he was captured. He bragged o newsmen: "Give me credi'. for the Niebels." Ready Forms for Vet Bonus Navy Payments May Be Delayed DCS Monies, UJ.R) — Application Blanks for bonus payments will be distributed to Iowa veterans organizations as soon as the statt bonus board gets operating funds, Board Chairman Chet B. Akers said Monday night. Akers, state auditor, spoke on a panel at a Des Moines American Legion post'meeting. Frost P. Patterson, Fontanelle, commander of the Iowa American Legion, said every Legion post will help veterans fill out the blanks. Adj. Gen. Charles H. Grahl said no problems are likely in prompt payment of $10 monthly domestic service allotments. But difficulties in determining overseas service for navy and marine veterans may mean delays in the $12.50 monthly payments for this service. State Senator George M. Faul (R-Des Moines) described his bill, to be introduced as soon as the legislature convenes Jan. 10, to finance the bonus from the state surplus instead of from bonds and a state property tax. Truck Goes Wild When Control Lost IMS Angeles, (U.R)—Malcolm S. Hare lost control of his giant truck and trailer Monday night as he vheeled along San Fernando road. n quick succession, the big truck: Snatched a parked car out of a voman's hands as she was locking he door, demolishing the car; Rammed a fire hydrant and sent ip a geyser of water; Snapped off 2 telephone poles, bringing down wires for 2 blocks; Mowed down 3 big trees and a 100-foot steel fence; Came to rest in a vacant lot 200 feet down the road. Hare was taken to Van Nuys receiving hospital with head injuries, shock and a ticket for making an unsafe lane change. Blind Man Builds Home for Himself Tampa, Fla., (ff>)— Melvin F. Jones, blind since 1931, will dedicate on Thursday the home he built for himself and his sightless wife. "It can be done—even by a blind man," reads the sign he set up in his front yard when he began the house 10 years ago. In those 10 years he has completed n frame bungalow which i"ould do credit to a man with sight. The house is wired for electricity throughout, has modern plumbing and is furnished attractively. "You can't realize until you have lost your sight how much can be done without it," Jones said. The house is on one of Tampa's main thoroughfares. Passersby used to be astonished to see Jones hammering nails when it. was almost pitch dark. Jones had his own construction business here until he was blinded when a piece of flying glass struck him.
