expressed in an interview by Senator Dickinson R Thorough Going Over It will probably be given a very thorough going over by the commit tee he said and I think there are enough cross currents to stalemate the whole program for this session Dickinson added he would not be at all surprised if the committee should substitute for the house measure the three way farm relief bill passed by the senate last ses sion and later recalled That measure provided that the farm board might employ either the domestic allotment equalization fee or export debenture plans of helping the farmer Theriare

it airtight against constitutional objections The committee now will report to the full judiciary committee which must pass on the proposition be fore it reaches the senate The new alcoholic content repre sents 38 per cent by volume as compared with the house figure of 4 per cent by volume The committee attempted to re move constitutional objections by avoiding a definition of what con stitutes an intoxicating beverage but limitnig the penalties of the Volstead act to those beverages above 350 per cent alcoholic con tent Senator Walsh Montana demo crat explained the subcommittee adopted this percentage because it had been arrived at after a scientific study by a commission appointed by the British parliament as nonin toxicating Cedar Rapids Man Is Killed When His Car Is Struck by Train

Found Not Valid DES MOINES Jan 13 Members of the fortyfifth general assembly returning to their homes for a brief rest before reconvening next Tuesday today were studying the problem of where their salary was coming from They found that the action of the supreme court in declaring uncon stitutional the expense account act left the Iowa statutes without any provision for paying the legislators Must Pass Law Hence they cannot draw any sal ary until they pass an act entitling them to payment on a per diem basis As the matter now rests it was discovered there is no salary set but the legislators may pass a law entitling them to per diem and mileage Since 1911 the custom has been to pay 51000 flat salary for the ses sion regardless of how long U lasted The supreme court however Interpreted the constitution as set ting definitely payment by the day The decision too probably will eliminate the extra customar ily paid to the speaker of the house besides his regular salary The speaker Isnot a constitutional officer and therefore is entitled only to pay as a representative those who have studied the decision believe It was pointed out that the legis lature can pass an act giving the members the same salary as last session to be paid on a per diem basis without the constitutional bar against a legislature increasing its own pay having any application Shortage in Treasury A further complication to pay ment of the lawmakers was found by the code students who discov ered that the salaries shall he paid out of any moneys in the treasury not otherwise appropriated Lens money now rests in the state treasury than will be needed to meet state appropriations to July 1 and the prospectof this condi tion continuing raised the question as to whether all the moneys in
