HARRY J KING, manager of the Retail

tin frnii the itate organization which tell,
what happened to the ".mall claim, court bill"
before the legitlature thi. year. It will be re-
membered that Albany merchants signed a pe-
tition asking the legislature to pass the bill.
"Before adjourning May 27, the lexa* Le-
lature passed the small claims court bill but,
unfortunately, crippling amendment, were
adopted and the hill now i. only a skeleton of
the original proposal. Five entire section,
were wiped out. Highest Ion was the proce..
procedure sections, the key to the entire bill
since they would have enabled merchants to
collect small debts easier, quicker and inexpen-
sively Another section eliminated bv the Se-
nate limited attorneys' fee.
The Senate action came during the last <la\
of the session, thus leaving the Home with no
alternative but to pas. the amended bill or let
it die Had the Senate action come earlier, it
would have been pos.ible to send the bill to
conference committeee where the stricken pro-
vision. could have been restored
