WASHINGTON May 12 Unhampered by any show of formal opposition the nomination of Owen J Roberts as an associate justice of the supreme court today came up for discussion and action by the senate judiciary committee Following the procedure usual to such cases Chairmtfn Norris planned to appoint a subcommittee to examine the nominees qualifica lions makings report to the senate before nest week unlikely Altho there had been a threat of opposition from the drys because of an address delivered by Roberts in 1923 in whtch he was quoted as denouncing the eighteenth amend ment this was believed to have been removed and many at the cap itol predicted that1 the nomination would be confirmed Others however recalling the slowly growing contests against the confirmation of Chief Justice Charles Evans Hughes and of Judge John J Parker whose nom ination to the supreme court was rejected last week hesitated to fore cast the outcome The threatened dry opposition was believed to have been dissipated largely by a statement from F Scott Bride general superintend ent of the AntiSaloon league in which he said that Roberts should be confirmed If he meets the test of of character legal quali fications intellectual honesty and capacity to deal with legal questions from a strictly judicial viewpoint without bias created by personal predilection FIND Stimson PACT PROVIDES ACTUAL PARITY

John Ham mill campaigning for the republi can senatorial nomination today i declared the measure merited ex ccutive veto because of its unfair I ness to the middlewest j The governor said that his op

that a fair agricultural tariff shall be one of the major is sues in the Iowa senatorial pri mary May ISo Disappointed President Hoover regarded tar iff equity for the middlewest of such great importance as a part of his farm relief program that called a special session of congress to deal with the question The pres ident nlust have been disappointed with the result of that special ses sion and no doubt he is disap pointed with the bill now emerging from congress I believe he is dis appointed because the interests which are antagonistic to agricul ture have actually pirated tho bill intended for the relief of the farm the field the motor was heard to sputter aa choked When the plane had soared a mile and a half south oi the airport i went into a spin the nose of the ma chine digging downward into the ground Attaches at the field imme diately rushed toward the wreckage and removed Mr Briggs Not Hurt Internally Aftci1 a physical examination physicians stated that they did not believe he was injured internally Mr Briggs left Mason City about a year ago and had been taking an aviation course at Chicago He hud about 40 hours solo flying on a HO lour course As he has been work ng in Chicago he has not been able 0 devote all his time to his avia ioti course In addition to studying yinff he had also spent some time n airplane construction A A Briggs is an employe of the Northwestern States Portland Ce ment company While in Chicago Albert Briggs has been living ut 1913 South Michigan avenue The bill deserves executive ve to and I would not be surprised to see the farmers and their trim friends requesting a veto as soon as final action has been taken in tho senate I for one expect to ask the president to disapprove it for it is nothing more than a pretense of farm relief tariff revision The bill carries upward revision on agricultural products which ag ricultural economists estimate will add only 10000000 a year to tho income of a small group of IOWH Tanners providingit can be effective on their products Wilt Cost 40 Million It will cost the Iowa farmers as a whole more than 540000000 a year in higher prices they must pay for commodities they purchase It will cost the people of the United States 51000000000 a year Been Missing Since Saturday MOINES May 12 body of EvelynLce who had been missing since Saturday after noon vas found this
