Belief but no Official
Statement is Given
Legislature to Adjourn for
Rest of Week; Taxes on
Luxuries Proposed
Both . booses ot the legislature
will adjourn this afternoon until
Monday, many senators being 111
with Influents, a number of legis
lators desiring to attend the last
rites tor the late Congressman
Bntler at The Dalles on Friday
and an Interim being needed for
committee work on a grist of bills
which hare thus far been Intro
duced In each house.
Before adjournment, legislators
are expecting action by Governor
Meier on the three-mill tax repeal
Bill and the state warrant bill
which are on his desk. The gov
ernor has until Saturday, however
to approve or veto the measures.
Extended conferences with
Portland bankers Wednesday
morning followed by a series of
legislator conferences held in the
executive's offices later In the
dar. rm nasi for a reneral re-
port that an execuUve veto of
eotn measures impended, -mere
was no official statement, how
ever, on the governor's position.
Warrant Bill May
Not Receive Veto
It was deemed unlikely that the
warrant bill would be vetoed un
less the executive had assurance
trom Portland banker, that state
obligations would be financed un
HI a property tax could be collect
ed by the state Hay 5.
The conference with banker,
contrasted markedly with the
hunger march protests earlier In
the week when the plight of the
"forgotten man" was emphasized
and the position of bankers gen
erally criticized
The governor apparently heart-
Sly dislikes to be responsible for I

MILWAUKEE, Wis., Jan. 11 (AP) Bank robbers, hi
jackers and killers no longer present the most ardu
