the Gar ner resolution proposing ratifica tion of the child labor amendment to the federal constitution There was only one negative vote in the committee of which Representative Hopp of Mills is chairman Ten days ago the committee re ported the bill for indefinite post ponement but pressure for a pub lic hearingcaused its recommit ment The senate last Friday passed a resolution 41 to G Would Reallocate Fees Reallocation of fees received from issuance of beer permits by muni cipalities was provided in a house bill passed today Under the measure 75 per cent of the fees will accrue to the munici pality issuing the permit and 25 per cent to the county Under the present law all fees collected in counties havingcities of more than 10000 population accrue to the mu nicipality in other instances there is a 5050 split between the city and tho county Todays discussion was brought up by Representative Zylstra of Sioux City who sponsored a mea sure which would have permittee cities of any size to retain all of the permit fees The bill as passed carries an amendment by Repre sentative McCreery Of Linn who proposed the 7525 division Kurnl Faction Wins It was a fight between urban and rural representatives In the begin ning the former giving way to the demands of their rural colleagues when they saw their case was hope less As a results the amended measure passed 89 to 14 McCreery said is was a question of whether the fees should be taken away from all counties pointing out that In the smaller counties en forcement of the bill evolved large ly upon the sheriffs In this con tention he was joined by Hanson of Lyon Sours of Floyd and Johnson of Linn who declared that the 75 21 apportionment was fair and equi table No Provision Made Brady of Pottawattamie declared that Council Bjuffs had done its own enforcing of tho law He also declared the bill Inequitable because no urovlsion was made for an allo cation of fees to the city when a permit issued by the board of su pervisors He declared he could see no rea son why the McCreery amendment should be adopted and asserted it was an effort of the drys to bemud dle the beer law Peco of Clinton declared he fav ored the original Zylstra measure providing for cities to retain all the fees The house voted down 13 to 85 an attempt by Strachan of Hum Tnrn to Column 3 of If anyone is arrested for the job Ill pardon them
