State House, Feb. 10—The notorious Hayes bill, better known as the "salary 'grab" measure, will continue to be a part of the Iowa law for at lea«t another two years, unices one of the several suits which have been started '.by (taxpayers against individual members of the assembly result In a court record which will Invalidate thla statute. By a vote of 28 to 18, February 5, the senate Indefinitely postponed a bill by Senator B. M. Stoddard, of Woodbury county which would have repealed the expense account statutes and by a publication clause would have been effective to cut off payments of expenses to members of the 44th general assembly after the time of the publication. The bill was referred to the committee on compensation of public officers and It was the report of "In- Six Weeks More 1 niilimw.au definite postponement" which the senate adopted that killed the repeal bill. Under the rules, the senate cannot consider legislation on the. same subject matter twice during the eame session. Salary-Grab Situation. A similar bill has been introduced In the House with the names of 19 co-sponsors on it. It is now In committee and has entirely lost its effectiveness because of the senate's action. However, It may be brought onto the floor by one of Its sponsors for the sake of a record vote. If this happens much bitterness is bound to be engendered between certain 'members who sat In the 43rd general assembly and those of the 44th who might seek to question the mo- lyard Girl B here were pleasantly •ur- | hear of the marriage of pen, Algona, and Doctor of Lakota.

G. Wertz against Frank Shane, former senator, L. W. Hall, former representative, and Representative Leonard Simmer, are pending In the Wapello county court. The test case will be made against . Senator Shane and, if the case:is unsuccessfully carried through to the supreme court,- the law will remain on the statute books. In the'excitement of debate, legislators are prone to forget to use the careful phaseology of the governor, who in his Inaugural address referred to the so-called "salary grabbers" of the 43rd session as the "many honorable men with none but honest motives." Battle Stirs Bitterness. A slip of the tongue by some gentleman who thinks his initial election to-the assembly came as a result of 'the support hla opponent and predecessor gave to the Hayes bill, will find himself In a cage full of wild cats If he attacks the older members In a personal way. Many re-elected members have been chided and attacked from many divisions of the body, politic. In some counties, the Hayes bill was an issue, but In most It was not a major one. Therefore, feeling is easily aroused. One House member said: "No one complains because' the legislature has provided legitimate expense accounts for judges, Inspectons of scales, highway commissioners, and the governor. But, when the assembly votes a legitimate expense al- ilowance to themselves to help meet the growing expense of the members some folks are too anxious to brand' us all as crooks." Thus the battle rages over the 'salary grab." "Third House" Busy. The'"third house" or lobby is waging a battle over the aevera: proposed tax-reform measures This move has been characterized as an attempt to "pass the buck." Statement by Allen. This writer, who Is chairman of the House committee, after conferring with those closest to the governor on the university matter, issued the following statement to the dally press Friday: "It appears that a certain group in the senate is anxious to delay the work of an Investigating committee to probe the administration of the University of Iowa. ^ "Time is valuable. If an rnvesti- gating committee is to report to this general assombly, work should be started at once. "Bach time this senate group qulb- b'.es over trivial details in the investigation resolution, they kill time, and that is all they hope to accom-| pllsh. Eventually Governor Dan Turner's request for this investigation will be carried out, and should be carried out, in all fairness to the people of the state, the Uni- vrsiy of Iowa and Is officials and employees." . Senator Carroll of the senate com- mttee was brief but voiced the .same sentiments -when ho said: "In the interest of everyone concerned, an investigation is inevitable."
