84 WISCONSIN CHE mAKERS ASSOCIATION me, and rightly so. From the nature of some of the complaints you can not help but get the impression that certain state em- ployees act as though they are our dictators rather than our ser- vants. They are very officious. The next session of the legislature is only a few months away. According to al indications there will again be plenty of legisla- tion which will effect our industry and bear watching. One of the supporters of that famous truck licensing bill which was introduced during the 194 session in speaking at a re- cent Convention stated that it was too bad that the opposition did not see fit to go along. He also indicated that similar legislation was in the making and would be up for consideration at the next session. Most of you know, that had this bill been passed, the license fees on our trucks would have been raised considerably. The bill dealing with weight limits was only postponed until 1951, so that is sure to be reconsidered. Another law passed in the last session allows cheese from out of the state to be shipped in and stored tax free, while cheese produced in Wisconsin is taxable. This law, as well as others, should be amended or repealed. When you receive notice from the office of the hearings to be held on these important bins, be sure and attend, if possible. If you can not attend the hearings write to your Senators, Assem- blymen, and the other officers of your organization, giving your views and suggestions. It is hard to represent you properly if we do not hear from you. In closing I want to thank the officers, directors, and last but not least, you members, for your co-operation during the past year. Thank you. (Announcements by President Kopitzke regarding prize money, and announcements by Mr. Mooney, off the record.) We will now have the drawings of the door prizes. (Award- ing of door prizes.) PRES. KOPITZKE: A motion to adjourn is now in order.
