A Senate :bill was passed by the House to regulate the prac- tice of c.hiropractors and was amended to amtain some ver- sions of the House bill in refer- ence to X-ray ,and title of doc- tor and so forth. House Bill No. 1251 was passed eegulating the small loan or- ganizations. This bill is more ,or less a compromLse with H.B. No. 979 which brought on a con- siderable amount of debate the previous week. However, H.B. No. 1251 is not quite as severe in reference to interest rates. Senate Bill No. 1998 was hotly contested on the floor of the Hzuse and passed by a good majority creating a State Plan- ning Commission. An approlriation bill was a complete recovery.

This makes a total of some $2,500,000 to renovate and re furnish the mansion. It might be interesting to n,ote that at the time She debate on this appropriation was taking place, one of the reporters in the House was hold- i,ng an umbrella to stay dry due to a leak in the xoof of t,he Capitol. A form of the Pest-Audit Bill that was passed last year has been sent, to the Governor for his sign,ature. This bill incorpo- rates ,the former Legislative In- vestigating Committee into a Post-Audit Committee that can bring charges and so forth for incompetence or misapprolaria- lion but does not do away with the State Auditor's office as the Post-Audit Bill ,of last year did. Three more weeks remain, of this session a,nd there are re, any 'bills, appropriations and' so forth still on the calendar that must be completed before the end of the session so we expect a busy windup. !i:/ :Lj 4 CARD OF THANKS We would like :to ,u:se the medium of this newspaper to express our heartfelt thanks ;o our relatives, fctends and neigh- bors for their many expressions of kindness shown us .during .the illness and following the death .el our beloved one, Mr. Albert Vincent,; for the cards, flowers, prayers offered, food, and the in- unit out-of-town phone calls.
