would like to see enactment of a speed limit j While they looked hopefully on those two points only one or two said they would like to take up liquor by the drink And no one gave any consideration to the in come tax form matter I Those who opposed a special sesj sion now were practically unani rnous in the view that conditions are not such as to warrant Some called attention to the cost of a special session But many more pointed out that the 1955 Legislature chose not to provide for reapportionment re fused to set highway speed limits and voted down liquor by thej drink Those lawmakers whoj brought up these points also rej minded that the same members would attend any special session DOW Of the legislators interviewed at State Day 28 flatly opposed a special session now 20 favored

mean that at best reappor tionment could not be passed the first time until about midSeptem ber It is highly doubtful whether the committee could finish its work much before Sept 1 The other block is
