reviewed possible legislation which might be passed for Iowa in 1953 some of which would require more money as he spoke at the Monday noon luncheon of Rotary Club at Hotel Hanford Tale then posed the question But where are you go ing to get the money The Cerro Gordo County legis lator referred chiefly to improve ment of state roads and increased funds to state institutions as he stressed the lack of money sources He said that the average Iowa citi zen was interested in culling tax es not increasing them Regarding state roads Talc said Our roads were originally built with bond issues and 1 suspect we will eventually go back to that method He suggested an increase of one cent a gallon on slate gas oline tax which would raise about million annually and greater taxes on luxury items such as liquor juke boxes shuffleboards vending machines and movie and dance tickets as possible sources On Salaries Tale cited the need for increas ing the salaries of those who run Iowas stale institutions but he was against raising the salaries of elected officials They knew the salary of the office before they ran for election Talc reasoned In spite of economy measures which Tate thought could becar ried out in certain state organiza tions he foresaw a need for million extra a year for the next two years in Ihe state budget There is only one place left to go the state income tnx he said adding that if state income taxes due the state now could be col it He foresaw no change inthe liquor law during the next session saying it will never get out of committee Tate expressed belief that both the tax and the ban on colored o 1 e o would be killed during the next session Other possible legis lation mentioned by Tate included a new pension bill for state em ployes and increased money for schools and right side of the Leakc truck were damaged A car driven by Dwight Alden Riceville skidded on ice on High way 18 just insidethe city limits at p rn and struck another auto being

would be needed The need for a legislative coun cil to study matters during the in terim period was endorsed by Talc He called attention to the obligation to reapporlion member ship in the legislature to keep in line with population changes Tate favored establishment of a slate utilities commission provided all utilities arc included He pointed out that Iowa was one of two states without such a com mission Liquor Question On the liquor by the drink question Tate favored voting for referendum to let the people to decide whether or not they want One Slightly Hurt in Six Car Mishaps Six auto
