Ho was Introduced by M. J. streit. chairman of the March program committee. Mr. Godfrey, as a member of the state board of education, ia deeply Interested in appropriations the legislature will make for continued operation of state educational institutions. A good deal of his time has of late been spent at Des Moines. Mr. Godfrey said the present legislature is divided into two groups. Both are interested in tax reduction, but one is also insistant on tax revision. The tax revision group is sub-divided into a group led by Senator Patterson which seeks a state income tax and a group which wants a gross income tax. j The legislature is also divided jibetween republicans and the democrats. Mr. Godfrey said the legislature has spent much time on what he regards as small matters, such as reduction of the delinquent tax penalty. This involves a reduction of only one-fourth of one .per cent, or from one per cent to three- 'ourths of one per cent. Another big fight was waged to delay the date when taxes become delinquent. This canot save the taxpayer much, but it will cost the state a good- sized sum, for the state will have .o Issue tax-anticipation warrants >earlng Interest. Mr. Godfrey thinks there have been more selfish interests at work at Des Moines this year than ever jefore. New members of the legis- ature this year are numerous, and :hey have to be constantly on the lookout against lobbyists representing special interests. Closing, Mr. Godfrey said he believed the legislature would vote '.or beer. He thinks the only way to retain prohibition in Iowa will be victory on resubmission to the people. The support of the people must be had before enforcement can be maintained. J foe paper We have had a r bad winter, with lots of rain lold weather.
