clubs bui got sidetracked by an attempt to convert the measure into a liquorbythedrink bill The House voted down the amendment 7922 It had before it when it ad journed until Tuesday morning another amendment to substi tute a different type of key club control bill REP NIELS Nielsen DRing sted Chief sponsor of the main bill said there now is no way that cities and towns can con trol key clubs It makes no sense Nielsen said to require beer taverns to close at reg ular hours but to let key clubs set their own hours and oper ate virtually untouched by law Nielsen said it is common knowledge that many such clubs are openly and flag rantly violating present liquor laws and that there is virtually no way at present to crack down on them NIELSENS BILL would re quire such clubs to pay a license fee and post a penal bond which would be forfeited if the permit were revoked for a liquor law violation It also would give cities and towns and boards of supervisors the power to fix the hours dur ing which liquor could be con sumed in such clubs Rep John Duffy DDubuque proposed that a liquorbythe drink measure he has intro duced be substituted for Niel sens bill He termed the pres ent situation rank hypocrisy sham and fraud and said it is what happens when you have no liquorbythedrink in Iowa he will meet with legislative leaders to recommend specific amendments and additions to

manufacturers I WILL suggest that it be made mandatory for the com mission to set and enforce reg ulations limiting sales and pro motional activities of liquor representatives and to furnish a copy of regulations to all com panies and individuals doing business with the commission Erbe said The post of chemist in the liq uor commission vacant for sev eral years should be elimin ated Erbe said and
