republican senate leaders which would have brought the unemployment in surance bill to a speedy vote DES MOINES the unemployment compensation act under consideration by the Iowa legislature in special session es sentially contemplates benefits for the intermittently unemployed was in the house of representativesTuesday by H L McCarthy of Chicago The latter regional director of the social security board pointed out under a heavy crossfire of questions that in states where both employer and employe contribute to the compensation fund benefits might have greater latitude The act contemplated by the Iowa leg islature levies a tax only on the employer on a graduated basis Time and again as McCarthy continued his explanation of the measure a proposal submitted by an unofficial subcommittee he halted with a barrage of inquir ies from anxious solons Quizzed by Republicans Several times the discussion flared to an interesting stage particularly as a number of re publican house members quizzed him closely on administrative fea tures of the plan and with ques tions conjecturing upon what con gress in the future might do with it So slow was the procedure by noorr McCarthy had got through only a half dozen of the scores ot sections and subsections Rep A H Avery R of Spen cer at one juncture drew the at tention of the house when he said I gather this isnt to take care of a depression a pros perity law It wouldnt have helped the working man in times just Provide Cushion This followed McCarthys state ment that a worker was eligible for benefit compensation only for a maximum period of 15 weeks and that at the end of that period he could not draw further bene fits until he had again built up reserve Continuing his reply to Avery McCarthy said the act was framed with a view to providing benefits for normal unemployment during normal times To say it cant take care of a situation is some thing no one can foretell but it will provide a cushion during cy Hold Up Grocery Store DES youths
