to Give Members Some Rest W1U1AM H WOODIN By HERBERT PLUMMER WASHINGTON Jan 12 CPA While it is perhaps true that ad journment of congress is desirable in order that the great gov ernmental agencies set up to aid national recovery might get down to function ing without pos s i b 1 e interfer ence from capi tol hill theres another import ant reason And it is pure ly a human one No one who has watched things in Washington for the past few weeks can fail to see that the nerves of almost everybody have become frayed Not since the days of the World war have congress and the administration followed a more gruelling grind than they have since President Roosevelts in auguration Its beginning to tell too Almost daily there is some occurrence in dicative of the state of things Applause Is Dying For one thing there are signs that the socalled honeymoon per iod of the administration is over There has been lost to the president some of the continuous and enthus iastic applause that so character ized his first few weeks in office Republicans have steeled them selves to put up a fight against some of his proposals They were singularly quiet at first The state of the country appeared to call for a political truce There are other evidences of the development of a more critical atti tude toward persons and acts con nected with the administration Thus a man described as being the closest of all to the president is haled before a congressional com the e s iiupplled the jv V Would Oust Woodin A republican senator openly de mands the resignation of Secre tary Woodin of the treasury depart ment and declares that if he doesnt resign it is the duty of the senate to jmpeach him Democratic leaders reply and the senate is thrown into a stormy debeate that injects bitter personal attacks A major senate committee that of banking and currency is criti cized by a republican senator who dislikes the secrecy with which it is conducting the Morgan investiga tion Rest Stay Help And so on There are unmistak able signs of irritation on all sides They are bound to increase so long as the present pace is continued When congress gets out of Wash ington a gradual break up of the political community inevitably fol lows Senators and representatives return to their homes This summer the president will take a vacation Much of the time there will be left in the capital only the purely ad ministrative agencies of the govern ment at work Once away from the grind on capitol hill tempers usualy cool off tolerance returns And by the time another session rolls around hard feelings are usually forgotten and a better spirit allround prevails Iowas Farm Bureau Band Arrives at Fair CHICAGO June 12 800 piece band of southern Iowa Farm Bureau members arrived to play at the

landed at that east Siberian town at a m Sunday p m Saturday B S after los ing his way from Beloye that he immediately went to sleep and gave officials no chance to ask about his plans No reports had been received here up to noon today as to the time for his takeoff for Nome Alaska but it was learned that heavy weather lay ahead of him on his way to Kamchatka peninsula northeast of Khabarovsk North Winds Blow Across the intervening sea of Ok hotsk as far as the town of Petro pavlovsk on the southern tip of the peninsula northern winds blew last night and early today These would give the Tcan head winds It rained hard in the area both last night and today On arrival at Khabarovsk he was three days behind the pace set by Wiley Post and Harold Gatty in 1931 and he had given up chal

Way He lost his way soon after leav ing Rikhlovo mistaking the Zea river for the Amur He remained at Sofisk long enough to get his bearings but the delay cost him many hours Supplementary reports received by Tass Russian news agency today somewhat cleared up the mystery surrounding the failure of any points along the prescribed route to sight Mattern between Rikhlovo nnd Sofisk The American abandoned his in tended course at Irutsk veering northeastward there instead of fol lowing the tracks of the transSi berian railway apparently in a des perate effort to make up time Un reported for

French representatives it was agreed that stabilization could he arranged for the duration of the conference A wide range would be necessary t was said in order to conciliate opposing views The three

extraordinarily new powers for relief extended to government farm officials by congress This rise credited in part by gov ernment statisticians to inflation ary influences has greatly increas ed potential farm purchasing pow er long dammed by low prices and surplus production Every import ant farm product has shown an In crease one of them wool advanc ing 75 per cent to its approximate prewar level More Than Ever Congress enacted more far reach ing agricultural legislation during the three month session than Its predecessors have put on the stat ute books in any decade The farm adjustment act the mortgage refinancing law and an act completing consolidation of fed eral agricultural credit agencies were the most important The adjustment act has as its goal returning purchasing power of farmers to its prewar status So far the advance in prices has affect ed materials the farmer sells with out measurably increasing the cost of goods he most commonly buys Acreage Cut Ncerted Secretary Wallace believes acre age reduction is necessary in the case of wheat cotton and corn and that hog and livestock production should be cut But he is convinced that under taking any program of production curtailment while prices are on the rise Is difficult because the farmer will be less willing to retire acre age The rise also has stemmed the ex pected rush of farm debtors and creditors to avail themselves of the mortgage refinancing act Creditors apparently hold new hope of improvement in land values with the result that they are now holding off instead of rushing to compose mortgages at lower fig ures U S Pushes 4 Point Plan to Aid Trade Hull States Program for Attack Against High Tariffs LONDON June 12 ex position of the American viewpoint shortly before the world economic conference opened today gave four specific ways for attacking high tariffs and expressed faith that iome progress will be made of a reasonably satisfactory nature Secretary of State Cordell Hull lead of the American delegation old a score of newspaper corre ipondcnts from various nations hat believed this generation is lust a little more capable of frappling with these difficulties than any that have gone before The specific tariff proposals Mr ilull said the conference might consider are Consider 4 Points First general revision simul aneously through various govern ments and parliaments Second a small horizontal re duction as a preliminary step Third regional agreements be ween neighbor nations such as lhat in effect between Holland Belgium and Luxembourg Fourth purely bilateral tariff bargaining All these methods he said might well contemplate the most favored nation doctrine and as few condi tions as necessary Agree on Methods Of paramount importance at the outset Mr Hull maintained is for the nations to agree on as many different methods of attacking the barriers as possible He personally favors any or all which will be most acceptable and effective he 3aid Mr Hull looking1 serene In a morning coat vaiwIngedXcollar ranc a black tie received the newspa permen in his hotel room a few hours before the history making world economic conference was called to consider economic prob lems of the world The secretary said any agree ment on tariffs must be carried out gradually and carefully but the mere fact that enlightened nations liad agreed would have a tremend ously valuable psychological ef fect immediately Kilter Opening Session I think the American delega tion will be thoroughly ready to enter the opening session of the conference and go forward in Its share of the work with such hope as ordinarily and reasonably char acterizes a movement of such mag nitude and character Hull said In conclusion Mr Hull asserted that we are Rll in the same boat we are all goingup together or nil going down A few hours before the confer ence it apcarcd that seven mem bers of the American delegations technical staff would not be able to find places in the
