senate passed the measure along to the house Altho the latter branch of con rcss approved the resolution two years ago republican leaders there are understood to be of the same mind as the administration group in the senate which voted solidl against it when the measure came to a ballot late yesterday It was passed 45 to 23 over its opposition Beyond the attitude of the house there lay too a persisting doubt as to what President Hoovers reactior would be if the measure should he sent to the white house for his ap proval Norris determined stand for hib resolution which staved off all ef forts at serious modification rewarded by a roll call which fount the democrats and the independen republicans voting almost solidly foi the measure Two democrats Steel of Iowa and Tydings of

substantially greatei nun in 3928 Surplus Is Kcdiiccd At the current rate of expenditure he in a statement is sued for publication today it ap jears that we should be able to clos he fiscal year
