Most of the new laws involve only
minor amendments to existing stat
utes. There are a number of import
ant amendments to the game laws
which are of special interest to
hunters and fishermen. Motorists
will, be particularly interested in an
amendment to the traffic law

headlights when meeting another
car, regardless of weather condi

act, "hot potato" of the session, is
one of the most important of the
new laws. Public ownership advo
cates strenuously opposed the mea
sure and threatened to invoke the
referendum against it but apparent
ly changed their mind.
Another important measure pro
vides for the consolidation of rural
school districts. Still another re
quires night clubs to be licensed by
the liquor control commission. The
September primary law is also in
