PAOE TWELVE SENATE, HOUSE IN DEADLOCK ONJAX DILL Filibuster Threat is Made to Force Senate Action. • By Byron G. Allen. rocalioutiis Comity lloprescntntlve. Statc'house, Des Moines, Mar. IB— Tax revision in the 44th general assembly hongs In the balance. The House, which strongly favors a state Income tax, has set the Senate's county assessor bill as a special order for this week Thursday morning but is resentfully watching the Senate, which failed by a vote of 24-24 to make a special order of the in come tax measure. These two hills are the main features of the governor's and legislature's efforts towards revision of the 77-year-old revenue laws of the state. Each measure is overwhelmingly popular in one body but-faces a close vote in the other. Senate leaders claim there are at least four votes which are sorely needed but •will not b« available for the income tax unless the House first passes the county assessor bill. House Threatens Filibuster. House leaders, in turn, are indignant that their body should shoulder responsibility through a "passing of the buck" the Senate, •which, they charge, has throughout two sessions tried to hold a whip(hand over the House. Some of trie representatives threaten another tax filibuster and dead'ock, or oven tabling- of the appropriation bill if the four senators in question "muss up the cards" on the income tax bill, •which the House passed by 82-2G. The real battle o f the 'session is now being waged in hotel lobbies and legislative cloakrooms over the two tax revision measures, and gallery spectators see and hear plenty of excitement during the next week or ten days. The administration forces won a victory in the field of utility legislation last week, when the Senate passed the Hicklin-Simmer bill, sponsored in the governor's inaugural address. The bill was first passed by the House, and provides that municipalities may purchase equipment tor electric plants and pledge earnings for retirement of the cost. This creates a law which it is thought will furnish a buffer against exorbitant rates by utilities. It fosters municipal light and power plants. Toivcr Co. Loses In House. Muscatine's Senator Hicklin and Representative Drake saw their Moscow dam bill suffer overwhelming defeat in the House would have permitted Friday. It construction of a water power plant at Moscow by diverting 35 miles of the Cedar river through a 0-mile canal to Muscatine, where an enormous fall LAKOTA COMMERCIAL CLUB HAS 21 AT FIRST MEETING Lakota, Mar. 17 — The- first Commercial club' meeting at the Woodman hall last week Ttiesday evening was attended by 21 businessmen.

Specialists, however, believe that A lake the canal would have] been about three times the size of Spirit Lake. Before this bill went to final vote, this writer added an amendment which would have permitted recapture of the site and equipment by the state after 20 years. With defeat of the measure, which had passed the Senate, this writer re Introduced his recapture provision as a' separate bill which will affect future gifts of waterpower sites to private corporations. Public Interest Protected. Such natural power 'resources, which have thus far been donated to the power interests by the state, are lost to the public, unless by excessive expense O f condemnation proceedings and values based on good will, future earnings, and unearned increment. The proposed bill will hereafter, if passed by both houses and approved, prevent such elements entering- into value on recaptures by the state or counties.

The Senate opened the week by rejecting Governor Turner's two selections for the board of education, Dernopi-at Frank .Miles, Iowa Legionnaire editor, and Republican Max Hueschen, Holstein editor. This was a jolt to the governor, and was Interpreted in some corners as a sign of lobby power on the part of the present board of education.
