VOL LXill Associated Press and United Press Full Lease Wires Seven Cents a copy MASON CITY IOWA SATURDAY NOVEMBER 10 This Paper Two Movement of Canal Police Speeded Big Tax Report Is Due Legislature to Face Problems By DWIGHT McCORMACK DES MOINES UP The 1957 Iowa Legislature will have to face up to the toughest problems in many years with a member ship including far fewer veteran lawmakers than usual Notable in the changes was the defeat of four of the seven mem bers of the Iowa Tax Study Com mittee who tried for reelection in the general election Also there will be many more Demo crats but not a majority One of the matters almost cer tain to be left for the next reg ular session is the report of the committees recommendations for revising the states tax structure to make it more equitable The committees report is due next week Although there were earlier indications of a special session to handle the recommen dations Gov Leo Hoegh has vir tually said there will be none Top Issues Taxes and even the timing of the committees report were among the issues on which Demo crat Herschel Loveless ran suc cessfully for governor He said the state should hold thejine on taxes and the committees re port should have been made be fore the election Now he will have his own tax program to recommend And the lawmakers will also have the committee report for considera tion In addition to the problem of how to revise taxes if that is decided upon the next Legisla ture will have to meet another certain problem That is requests from state agencies for increased appropriations These are only some of the knotty problems the lawmakers must solve And they will have only about 100 calendar days to do it unless the session goes be yond the usual adjournment time The unofficial results of the general election show that of a possible 137 changes in Senate and House seats 61 were made There will be 44 new faces among the 108 House members and 17 new members of the 50man Sen ate Twentyone senators are holdovers Firm Majorities Loveless will have a consider ably greater Democratic mem bership in the Legislature to deal with In the 1955 session there were 6 Democrats in the Senate and 19 in the House This time there will be 10 Dem ocrats in the Senate and 35 in the House However the Repub licans will maintain firm major ities in both houses The members of the 1955 ses sion considered tax revision at length and made some changes But they created the study com mittee and assigned it a task the Legislature said could not be done satisfactorily in a regular ses sion The next Senate will include six present members of the House and two former senators The House makeup will include one of its former members Also absent from the next ses sion will be several longtime or prominent members All of them voluntarily dropped out of their respective houses Gone from the Senate will be Sens De Vere Watson RCouncil Herman Knudson R Clear C S Van Eaton R Sioux J C

Republican confer ence vacant because Sen Milli kin RColo did not seek another term Both Democratic leader Lyndon B Johnson of Texas and Republi can leader Knowland of Califor nia were wary about predicting who will step into the vacancies They insist that the presession party conferences or caucuses will bestow honors Actually the word of a Senate party leader usually carries great weight at these closeddoor sessions No Seniority Unlike committee chairman ships the Senate party leadership posts are not decided on the basis of seniority or length of service Senate Democrats operate un der
