Then the Senate voted to end its labor on April 11, but the House decided to mark time, until a plan to solve the financial, sltuatiou was worked out The Democratic majority in the House of Representatives voted to send the Senate resolution for final adjourn- ment to the rules committee. All reve- nue raising measures must originate in the lower House, and the Senate claims that delay of the finance com- mittee there is holding up adjourn- ment. While one group of legislators was scouting for the best means of raising more revenue for the state, another group was conferring with Governor Adams in trying to reduce recom- mended appropriations to a minimum. Several members declared they fa- vored a flat Income tax for the next two years to bring more money into the state treasury. A suggestion was made to the committee that the state draft a simple law, making the state income tax a proportion of the amount paid to the federal government for income tax. Both Houses of the State Legisla- ture honored the victims of the Klowa county bus tragedy. The Senate and House adjourned in a mark of sym- pathy for five children and the heroic bus driver who lost their lives. Sen- ator Fred A. Temple and Representa- tive Byron Rogers, both of Klowa county, sponsored the action. Bills to regulate and tax the thou- sands of private carriers now using the highways tax free for transporta- tion of freight and passengers in com- petition with regularly taxed and li- censed common carriers, were passed by the State House of Representatives on third and fnal reading. The State Hause of Representatives voted Denver's National Guard unit a new half-million-dollar armory and her county judges salaries of $6,00 a year. Both actions must be concurred in by the State Senate and signed by the governor before being enacted in- to law. The armory would be built through the issue of one-half million dollars worth of bonds authorized ori- ginally under the national defense act of 1917. - --" " Clarification of the statutes regard. Inn good time allowances for convicts was given final approval of the State Legislature and has been sent to Gov- error Adams. The bill fixing definite limits for the time off that may be granted for good behavior, is the first on the legislative proposals advocated by Governor Adams to pass both Houses. Labor leaders and railroad em- ployees filled the galleries of the State House of Representatives only to see one of their favored bills defF nltely eliminated from consideration for the present session. It was H. B. 203, regulating the length of all trains and prescribing the number of men in operating crews. It was voted down by the committee of the whole, after a heated debate. An attempt to amend the primary election law by striking from it the provision for registration of party af- flllatlon, decreed by the Assembly four years ago, failed. By a two-to- one vote the Senate turned down an amendment, proposed by the elections committee# providing that each Voter should be furnished with two ballots, Just as he was furnished under the law prior to 1927. Labor forces went down to defeat in the State House of Representatives when the principal workmen's com- pensation billto be presented at this session was sent into the mines and mining committee, probably to stay there. The bill raised the minimum disability for injured workmen from $5 to $7 a week and the maximum from $14 to $16. Ten appointments submitted early in the present legislative session by Governor Adams have been confirmed by the State Senate. Those whd re- ceived Senate approval, making" their appointments binding, were: C.L. Chapman and Oscar L. Goetze as members of the board of control of the industrial school for boys. Edwin S. Kassler and Mrs. Leila C. Eaton of the board of control of the industrial school for girls. Herbert Fairall and Dr. George Schumacker of the Moffat Tunnel Commission. James H. Lee of the board of control of the home for mental defectives. Fred W. Betz and Neit W. Kimball of the State Board of Immigration. Fred W. Stowe for the commission of uniform state laws. The State Senate killed eighteen bills which embody Gov. William H. Adams' financial program for the present session. As bill after bill was being considered, the enacting clause was stricken from each. S. B. 271, by Ammons and Nelson, placing the sheriff of the state and the members of a sheriff's posse un- der provisions of the workman's com- pensation act, was passed on third reading by the Senate. By a vote of 36 to 25, the State House of Representatives defeated a tlon to rerefer to the favorable ections committee the reapportion- aent bill passed on final reading by the Senate. The bill then was or- dered sent to the reapportionment commit te wh!ch lm coaPidered hOB- BONANZA Sigred Midwinter and Elinar Mac- Kenzie were those from here attend- ing the birthday party for S.
