State Legislators Face Many Problems Chain Store Legislation Up For Consideration Chain store legislation came squarely before the Iowa legislature this week, following nearly a week of maneuvering for position between two schools of thought on the proper and constitutional method of taxing Vie chains. Chain Tax The result of the skirmishes of the past week was a compromise bill, embodying of each measure introduced earlier in the session, and arrived at in conference of a special committee in the Senate named for the express purpose of bringing forth a compromise. Whatever decision the Senate was to make this week, if it passed the measures, had still to find support in the House. Retaliation Reports trickling in to the Iowa legislature from the general assembly of other states, principally in the South, were to the effect that large numbers of southern legislatures had measures pending in retaliation against Iowa on the score of butter substitute penalties. Most of the states were considering legislation that would set up internal tariffs against importation of agricultural and dairy products of Iowa, Wisconsin and Minnesota- The South wants to protect its market for cotton seed oil. Payroll Publicity On or about April 1, the state printer will issue a book of ap-nroximately 300 pages, authored Beer Bill Will Eliminate One Travern Here Iowa's new beer bill would eliminate one beer parlor in Elgin as the limit will be three in towns under 1,000 population. The bill further provides elimination of class C permits for "off the premises consumption," such as grocers. An increase from $100 to $150 for class B or "by the stein" permits. Maximum remains at $300. That employment of minors shall 'be illegal. Sales to minors also illegal. City councils may issue "beer-dance" permits only if operator has at least 1,000 square feet of dance floor space. In rural districts the minimum would be 1500 square feet. . Class B tavern permits to be limited to areas designated as "business districts" by the city or town council. No permits for filling stations or roadhouses. Possession of a federal retail liquor dealer permit shall be grounds for mandatory revocation of a beer permit. -E- Iowan Named Court Justice Talle Makes Hit in Maiden Speech Our Congressman, H. O. Talle, of Decorah, made his maiden speech in the House last Friday and scored a hit. He was speaking in favor of a bill which would give farmers 3 1-2 per cent money and would extend their loans over a 34 year period. It would not solve the farm problem, he said, but it would be a step in the right direction. Cong. Talle was accorded an unusual amount of applause from the entire house membership at the conclusion of his speech. A Washington news release speaks of Talle as follows: . "Talle, a Republican, is an unusual sort of Congressman as the breed runs. He's a retiring sort of an individual, not given to blowing his own horn, but he's a deep thinker and when he has something to say it counts even in a New Deal Congress. He has already gained the reputation of being at least one freshman Congressman from the mid-dlewest that has a great future as a national statesman. Talle was formerly head of the economics department of Luther College at Decorah, la." -E- A Full Sized Crew Working at Cappers employed in state government as �f Oct. 1, 1938. Annually thereafter a new salary list book will be published by the state. The cost of this initial document is about $3,200, according to the estimates of Senator A. Claire Dewey of Washington, one of the legislators directly responsible for its publication. The book is for .general circulation. FnU Press Gallery Editors and publishers of Iowa, attending the annual spring convention of the Iowa Press association visited the legislature last week end to see the solons in action and to call on their home representatives in the General Assembly. The newspaper profession is represented in the legislature toy the smallest group in many sessions. In the House there is only Rep. N. E. Guernsey of Milton, Van Buren county, publisher Of the Milton Herald, a Republican. In the Senate, Howard C. Baldwin, Dubuque county sen^j ator and publisher of the Cascade Pioneer, a Democrat, completes the newspaper group. Teachers Pension At long last it looks as though Iowa teachers will have their much-desired annuity and pension system. With comparative ease, the Senate last week pushed through to passage and sent to the House 38 to 8, a bill to retire teachers at the age of 60, unless through disability an annuity is granted earlier. As it passed the Senate, the measure was a very modest document, calling, for only $530,006 oiitlay on the part of the state, each year for the next bi-ennium to start the program. Teachers will contribute twice as much in the long run as will the state which expects to level off its contribution by 1959 to $250,-000 a year. Maximum pensions will be about $150 a month. Annuities are based on the average yearly salary during the last ten years of teaching service and the higher the average in that period Ihe higher the annuity will be, except that in no case will'the; {Continued to Page 6) Wiley B.

We thought they were kidding but after John went out Axel explained that John had a hobby of collecting rosettes, those bright knick-knacks the farmers used to dress up bridles. He never passes up a harness shop, trying to find something different in rosettes. -E--� George Vaughn returned to his work in Dubuque Sunday after spending the week end at his home here.
