It mahave been a shrewd piece of
politics i Norval s part or it may
have been entirely innocent, but the
.suggestion was knifed early in the
game when announcement was made
that the committee on committees
had already considered the ap
pointment of members of the com
mittee on legislative apportionment
and its work would be disarranged
by the Norval motion.

the governor declared that the pres

of this problem by past administra

"This," he said, "would increase
interest in governmental affairs,

people do not take enough interest
in helping run their government. In

cost of each statewide election "in
In speaking of the inland water
way project, he said, in part:
"Cheaper transportation facilities

to the grain producers in Nebraska.

Two new departures, in the law
enforcement department are recom
mended. One proposes to establish
in the Department of Justice a
bureau of investigation copied after
a similar bureau maintained by the
national government. Another would
give county attorneys the same in

juries, and, ..the governor points out,
would save much public expense.

the habit of . State office in printing

Relief for alleged unfair taxation
of building and loan associations is
proposed by the governor as fol
lows: "The law requires that funds of
these organizations shall be loaned
on real estate and on their own
stock and it appears that by taxing
all of tH stock of these companies
double taxation results. This abuse
might be remedied through the ap
plication of an income tax. Tem
porary relief against this condition
might be effected by removing from
taxation installment stocks of build

tinuing their paid-up stocks for
taxation at a classified rate as in
tangibles." Industrial Court.
