Farm Uses Under changes recommended in be laws refunds would be limited only to gasoline used for agricul ural purposes At present contrac tors and others using gasoline for other than motor vehicle fuel are permitted refunds The committee also recommend ed that its life be continued to per mit it to continue its investigations further and to submit eventually a bill revising the entire motor ve hicle code as it applies both to gas oline taxes and to license fees The report dwelt at length on refunds obtained through alleged fraud by contractors in recent months Loosely Handled Your committee

handling those claims seems to have completely broken down especially where claims of contractors and alleged contractors were involved the report said Going into the history of con tractors refunds the report point ed out that before Dec fi 1931 such refunds were not allowed but on that day the supreme court found they were entitled to such recovery Thereafter it said at least two pes Moines attorneys began seek ing claims from contractors on a 50 per cent contingent fee basis and collected sometimes merely on a vague statement as to gasoline purchases over a period of five or six years and at other times on duplicate invoices Fee Splitting Charged There was evidence quite con clusive in its nature that these at torneys and others engaged in the racket were splitting to rnjo Column 7
