Gehl of West Bend today ruled against a suit instituted by William T. Evjue, editor of the Madison Capital Times, challenging constitutional validity of a "room- and-board" law enacted by the 1945 legislature. The decision sustained a demur- rer which had been filed to thc suit, directed at Iti holdover senators, by the state attorney general's office. The suit sought to restrain Secre- tary of State Zimmerman and State Treasurer Smith from paying the senators each month for the first six months of thc current ses- sion as provided in the 1345 law. ing the senators' term of office. licenses would" be effective until June 30, He was at the city council meet- ing Monday evening to urge pass- age of the amendments, which pro- vides that each bicycle must carry a license plate. That plate will be furnished by the city 1'or the an- nual payment ol 25 cents. Mr. Loughrey told the council that he was urging passage of the amendments because it would re- duce bicycle accidents. Said he, "I've talked to traffic patrolmen and police captains in a score of cities, and they all say you can't enforce a bicycle ordinance unless you have a good licensing system." "I he continued, "that If you make a boy a good bicyclist, you'll make a good car driver out Of him."

The police would be In charge of that program, and they will also be in charge of licensing. Until now the city recorder has been charged with licensing. Cream of Wheat Founder Dead Truman Triples Estimate of Budget Surplus Tru- man apparently has tripled his original estimate ol' .the amount of money the government will have left over a year hence. In vetoing- the Re- publican-backed tax redaction bill yesterday, Mr. Truman asserted that if tho measure were to become law "the amount available for debt re- tirement would be entirely too low for this period of unparalleled high levels of peacetime Income and em- ployment." Never before has the administra- tion acknowledged that there would be anything at all left for debt re- tirement If the government lost in tax revenue. The President's official estimate of the coming fiscal year's surplus still remains at the figure he set forth last January. But his" veto message indicated he now believes the surplus will be at least thrice that some- thing over Mr. Truman may be conceding that government revenues in the fiscal year beginning July 1 will be greater than the he last estimated. He counted then on tax collections out of a national In- come of In recent months, the national income has been at a rate of or tore.
