MOINES Jan 5 enate action today had limited the fe of the retail sales tax provision f the interim committee tax bill n which It is working to two years Under the provisions of an amend ment adopted yesterday in commit ee of the whole by a vote of 31 to the retail sales tax will be lev ed only until Dec 31 1935 where as the bill originally made it a per manent tax The retail sales tax levied at a 2 er cent flat rate is expected to aiae upwards of 514000000 of the 18000000 the three point tax bill expected to produce wo provisions a net personal in ome tax and a net corporations in ome tax would continue after the xpiratlon of the retail salea tax Plan Not Opposed Introduced by Senator George atterson and others the amend ment to limit the life of the retail alea tax was not opposed by spon ora of the interim committee bill S F 1it was adopted only after a vigorous debate in which it was opposed by advocates the gross income form of taxation Fourteen democrats and 17 repub icans voted for the amendment while opposing votes were cast by seven democrats and seven repub licans Five members three demo crats and two republicans were ab sent or not voting Some political observers saw in the actionan attempt to solidify support behind the bill by more closely uniting its proponents and opponents of gross income tax plans and to draw support from senators favoring a gross income bill Willing to Accept In the debate Patterson explained that while he opposed a retail sales tax as a permanent provision he was willing to accept it as a tem porary or emergency measure Sen ator E R Hicklin of Wapello vigor ously opposed the amendment The vote on the patterson amend ment was Anderson Aschen Drenncr Beardsley Bennett Booth Calhoun Garden Chrystal Elthon ETisch Geske Hill Hopkins Hush Simberly Leo McArthur Meyer of Bremor Miller of Buchanan Miller of Jones llullaney Nelson Patter son Pendray Ritchie Roelofs Schmidt Stanley Stevens of De catur Valentine and Wilson Noes Beatty Frailey Harrington Hicklin Hua ted Irwin Klemme Moore Reese Shangle Topping Tripp and Wen ner Defeat Amendment Absent or not ers Coykendall Doze Knudson and Stevens of The senate also defeated without a record vote an amendment by Senator L T Shangle which would have stricken the section making it unlawful for a retailer to advertise that they had absorbed or would refund the retail sales tax to the purchaser The senate committee on high ways today recommended for indef inite postponement the bills in which Senator Paul Schmidt o IowaCity proposed a 550000000 highway construction program cov ering fourlane highways across the state and a system of rockshouldei highways connecting and supple menting these AMENDMENTS TO STATE CONTROL Continued From Face J councils decision the question would be put to a popular vote Durant claimed that advertising would promote the consumption o liquor which the bill attempted to decrease This is just another instance o how silly some otherwise grown up people are said Gallagher oppos ing the measure Fort Dodge Distillery You cant keep advertising oui of your national magazines or pa pers or radio programs Representative Mitchell of Web ster informed the house that plans were well under way to establish a distillery at Fort Dodge and de clared it unfair to prohibit small distilleries from advertising while allowing large ones the privilege In order to smooth out the situation Representative Teter of Marion then offered an amendment prohibiting all advertising except that allowed by federal statute and regulation If you want to do away with all advertising adopt the Teter amend ment said Representative Fabritz of Wapello He then asked that the house defeat all amendments on the subject State Regulations Representative Sours of Floyd de clared it was the federal thought to let each state make its own regu lations and that the bill in its orig inal form would throw the state open to all liquor advertising Not many people begin to drink liquor from advertisements they read said Representative Mercer of Johnson this matter should be left up to the commission Differing with Mercer Represen tative Avery said the purpose of ad vertising was to increase sales and that we are trying to eliminate the desire for gain by putting con trol In the hands of the state The Teter amendment went down 25 to 70 The members then voted down 34 to 61 an amendment by Reprcgentatlve Feltcr of Warren which would exempt the commission COLORADOS DEATH CHAMBER This the now lethal gas chamber of the Colorado prison at Canon City where Walter Reppln of Newark N J was doomed to die unless the legal battle to save him proved successful Beppins attorneys argued that the boy being a minor had no right to plead guilty He won a stay of execution from the Colorado supreme Press or special distributor from the pro visions of the advertising act Offers Amendment Still sanguine of putting over some prohibition Representative Grau of Buena Vista offered an amendment prohibiting poster or billboard advertising under penalty of a fine He said he believed this the only curb which could be put on such publicity because if the public con get advertising from papers outside the state there is no reason to deny it to papers withih Iowa However the amendment was boiled over 36 to 59 The Hanson amendment provid ing an award for evidence in boot legging cases was termed a stool pigeon amendment by several of the members It was defeated 33 to 65 This amendment would make it worth while to provide informa tion in bootlegging violation said Hanson This is not a good principle said Representative Jensen of Au dubon Its the same idea of pay ing a child for being good Holler for Pay When you for pay youre not doing the cause any good said Representative Johnson of Lynn who declared it might overload the appropriations Representative Mitchell of Web ster fought the amendment on the ground it would make it harder to get convictions Several years ago county attor neys employed stool pigeons he said juries were reluctant to ac cept their testimony I dont be lieve the amendment would accom plish its purpose On the other hand Representative Stanzol of Ida asserted It was the best proposal yet suggested for control of the bootlegger The guy that would squeal for a paltry 550 is no better than the bootlegger himself said Represen tative Simpson of Jones Bcfuse to Concur The senate in its morning session refused to concur in house amend ments to the butter bill creating state butter control board Refusal to concur in the changes made by the lower branch was by a vote of 0 to 42 The bill also pre scribes regulation for butter man ufacturcd for sale under the Iowa state butter trademark and fixes standards for trademark cream eries After voting to reconsider the ballot by which the Treimer bill to make permanent a transfer o OBrien county funds the senati then reversed its position by pass ing the bill 31 to 11 Other bills passed by the upper house included one by the senate judiciary committee number two legalizing proceedings in the city o Burlington in issuing in pub He building bonds Pass House BUI The senate also passed a housi bill making permanent transfer o from the road maintenance fund to the poor fund in Cherokc county Committee reports recommending passage were returned on two bills One was the Frailey and Kimberly old age pension measure and th other a county and township affair committee bill providing for estab lishment of two additional polic radio broadcasting units one in northeastern Iowa and the other in the northwestern part of the state The senate decided to defer con sideration for the time being on ta revision because of the absence of a number of the members During th afternoon a number of legislators and state officials left for Jewell tc attend the funeral services of John Knudson five year old son of Sen ator and Mrs Irving H Knudson Weed Wins Battle The house yesterday afternoon re scinded its action of the mornlni session In which it passed 51 to an amendment by Reprcsentativi Mitchell of Webster which wouli permit drug stores to resell liquo for medicinal purposes upon pre scription of a licensed pharmacisl by adopting a motion to reconsidc the vote The fight for reconsideration was led by Representative Weed of Mad ison who won his battle 53 to 45 despite the combined opposition o Mitchell and Representatives Galla gher of Iowa and McKinnon o Henry Further consideration of the Mit chcll proposal was delayed until af ter the local option question hai been disposed of HOUSE APPROVES TAX ON LIQUOR Continued From rage J ratio whip today that he expect d congress to conclude by the mid le of May at the latest They conferred at a luncheon con erence The president impressed on me aid Lewis on leaving the object IB has of the senators giving as much time as they can to quick con ideration of the new measures put efore congress No Extra Time He made it clear that while he vould not hinder full debate he opes that no more time shall be aken on speeches than necessary to larify the measures The president hopes that con ress can finish the present session uid get away by the middle of May it the latest For myself I think I ee us here until July I must say that it appears to me that the president feels that the nation suspects or fears congress vhen it begins to do unnecessary olktng The whole text was dili gence and an early conclusion by ongress He has faith they all feel as he does WYNEKOOP TRIAL SET WEEK
