"We can no longer treat (water) as an inexhaustible resource and allow it to run untamed and wasted into the seas," he said. "Failure to harness and conserve this resources invites disaster." Referring to Gavins Point as the 'mighty mite" of the Missouri River dams, Short said it is the last dam to control the Missouri' above its mouth, One of the dam's chief functions is to smooth out the pulsating caused by power generating 70 miles upstream at Fort Randall Dam, near Lakes Andes S.D.

The liquor commission and conservation commission are both located in the old "lab" building just west of the statehouse. The commerce commission is housed in the old Amos Hiatt school building which is just south of the state office building. The commerce commission building, lab building and statehouse are not ail conditioned. The state office building is air conditioned. The conservation commission recently took advantage of this by holding its meeting in the state office building instead of the lab building. Liquor commissioner C. J. Burris (D), Maquoketa, said employees in his department have been very co-operative about the whole matter. He said they have worked late on several occasions to get the work done. Burris said the commission was afraid that some of the girls would pass put in the building and the commissioners felt it was cheaper to give the employees the afternoon off rather than to have some off work several days because of the unbearable heat. The former representatives said he felt more and more legislators were acquainted with the heat problem and that he has high hopes that an appropriation will be made by the next legislature to provide for air conditioning. Commerce Commissioner John Ropes (R), Onawa, said the commerce building, which at one time was condemned for school purposes, is air-conditioned in the winter time —"the wind blows right through the place," he quipped. However, in the summer, just the opposite is true as the temperature inside the building is about ten degrees warmer than outside. Ropes said he didn't think it would cost too much to air condition the building. Bad Checks The use and sales tax division in the tax commission has'' run into a rash of bad checks recent- Jbhn Harper, superintendent of assessments and collections, said merchants on the whole have been very co-operative in remitting the sale,s tax to the commission. For about four years the commission had the policy of telephoning merchants to tell them when they had insufficient funds to cover the amount of their check to the commission. The commission thus afforded them the opportunity to make the check good. This was satisfactory to a certain degree since it eliminated a lot of red tape. However, the commission was racking up a $200 telephone bill each month in calling the merchants. On July 1 the commission ordered the sales tax department to place all of these calls on a collect basis. If the party refused the call then a penalty 'was assessed. Naturally, it was better for the person to accept the -call than have the penalty assessed. Harper said ht is receiving about 100 checks a week and that only two persons have refused to accept calls since the rule went • into effect. Tax Exempt? The state tax commission may ask the attornej general for an opinion on whether custom corn drying is exempt from sales tax under a bill passed by the last legislature. Some individuals go from farm to farm using equipment to dry the corn after it has been stored: Some co-operatives also hire these individuals .periodically to dry corn they have stored. The commission may also ask the attorney -general to rule on whether liquid petroleum when used for turkey and chicken brooding purposes and also for water warmers and heating stock tanki falls under this statute. Incidentally, the tax commis* sion has had more inquiries about this law exempting fuel used in tractors and Bother farm equipment from the sales tax than it ha£ on the sales tax reverting from 2% to 2 per cent.
