W PAY BILL
Patterson Budget Measure
; Passed the Senate v -I
After a spirited debate, the
members -of the senate,, by in
definite postponement yesterday
killed the bill introduced by Sen
ators Bell and Vinton to increase
the. pay. of circuit court jurors
from $3 to $4 a day.
Senator Jones put in a strong
word for the bill. It was acridly
opposed by Senator Eddy, who
declared it would add tremend
ously to the already heary tax
burden.-and' that the members
had been elected to the senate
on the pledge not to increase
taxes except when absolutely necessary.
Senator Vinton, one of the
sponsors, said increased pay
would eliminate much of the ob
jection busy farmers and busi
ness men make to Jury service,
and would assure at all times a
high type of citizens available for
Jury duty rather than the profes
sional jurors such as serve . in
Senator Bell said that should
he oppose the. bill he could not
consistently vote for asy ; of. the
salary increases recommended by
the special committee on salaries,
of which he was chairman. Ellis
