The house this afternon in committee of the whole passed to third reading the general appropriation bill amounting to approximately $4,500,-000 for salaries for state officials, appointees and employes, and including contingent funds of the departments. The appropriations for the salaries for the different departments included the increases that had been allowed in a previous bill. Only a few’ attempts were made to strike appropriations from the bill. The first was to eliminate the appropriation of $18,000 for the maintenance of a bureau of Venereal diseases. It was explained that this was to meet a government appropriation for work practically already begun in the state. The amendment was lost. An amendment by Mr. Cheatham of j Creek county would strike out $15,-i SSO for the superintendent’s salary j and other working funds for the fish hatchery at Medicine Park. On a vote the appropriation was stricken but later it was reconsidered and the amount re-instated. An unfavorable report came from the committee on appropriations relative to House Bill 492. making an appropriation of $40,000 for trick eradication work in some of the southeastern counties. Mr. Bobo asked that the bill be placed on the calendar, even though the committee had reported adversely. This will be done on a vote of the house. Resolution by Mr. Stevenson of the house, which had been adopted in tho senate,* was given similar action in the license, asking that restrictions, be. removed fpoiu some of the Indian surplus land so it could be made    available for    purchase    on terms    by some of the    returning    soldiers.    t    i The    senate adopted    a resolution by Mr. Davidson extending the repoijs on state Income tax until April I.
