JAPAN OBSERVES WAR ANNIVERSARY FOREIGN SILVER BUYING FOUGHT BY REPpCANS Seek to Reverse Monetary Defeat by Launching Opposition Drive I Mercury Rises To New Height When Hits Mark of 97 WASHINGTON, July 7.-(/P)- Senate Republicans, seeking to reverse their monetary defeat, started a new drive today to pro-titbit future treasury purchases of foreign silver. Although the Senate originally adopted a Republican amendment to the monetary bill banning the purchases, it was knocked out by a joint Senate-House committee before the legislation was enacted. Senator Glass (D-Va.), who opposes foreign silver buying, called a meeting of his banking subcommittee today to consider a new bill by Senator Townsend (R-Del) to forbid such purchases. An authoritative treasury official said, meanwhile, that the treasury hereafter would pay little, if any, more for foreign silver than market conditions war- ; ranted. In its daily price-posting for foreign silver, the treasury had held the world price at 43 or more cents an ounce tar which yesterday brought the, ' metal down to 36.75 cents an ounce- the lowest price ever paid by the government. To Prevent 'Dumping' The cuts were started to prevent dumping of foreign silver here before the, passage of the monetary bill, which President Roosevelt signed yesterday. Now that the measure has been enacted without a restriction in foreign purchases, officials indicated that they have no intention to boost the price back up. A reduced-price policy, they said, would have the effect of curtailing foreign silver sales to the United States.

One. of the most important results of a low silver price may be its effect on United States trade with Mexico, Canada, Peru and other silver-producing countries. Last year, for instance, Mexico sold the United States $41,-715,000 worth of silver, and used the money to pay for most of the $62,043,000 worth of merchandise she bought In this country. Driver's License Ruling Is Upheld TALLAHASSEE, Fla., July 7-The Florida Supreme Court decided today the state or any of its citizens may require licenses for . non-resident automobile drivers "in the interest of public safety and the general welfare when no undue burden Is imposed on interstate commerce." It affirmed the conviction of Jess6 Slone in Miami for operating an automobUe without obtaining a city driver'^ license and submitting his automobile for mechanical Inspection. The Dade county circuit court had ordered Slono discharged on the ground that he Uved outside the ,clty of Miami and therefore wais not subjected to its driver's license law. Yes, you're right! The heat yesterday set a new high mark In Panama City. It touched 97. Only twice before had it gone near so high, and both these Limes it touched 95. These were June 24 and July 5. Apparently the force of the heat wave, which reached a climax yesterday. Is broken. The temperature today didn't seem to be cf any record-making proportions.
