Mr. Howell, having reserved the right to explain his vote, made the following statement:

"Two years ago when this matter came up providing for a salary of $1,200.00, I voted 'no' and fought the bill at that time. That was in the regular session of 1923, before the special session was held. I thought at that time there would be a new constitution written in the State of Michigan within the next three or four years. Since then I have changed my mind. I cannot see any hope for a new constitution now. I believe that coming to the Legislature is a service to your city and county and state. Legislative service should not be measured in dollars and cents. That is my feeling in coming to the Legislature. Because there are some men who do not look at this matter as I do, I changed my vote and voted for the submission to the people of the question of an $1,800.00 a year salary, knowing that if I voted against it I might cut off some good members for this house who could not afford to come here, and knowing full well that this is the only opportunity of putting it before the people for the next twenty or thirty years.".

Mr. Miller moved that the House take a recess until 2 o'clock p. m.
The motion prevailed, the time being 12 o'clock m.

After Recess.
