Will Mean Election in Louisiana By HERBERT PLTJMMER WASHINGTON June 26 There have been comparatively few deaths and resignations in the house o f representa tives elected for the present con gress and none of particular effect on the political lineup J ac k Garner for example re signed the seat that he has hela in the house since 1903 but it wos nothing more than a transfer He moved across capitol hill to vice BOUVAIi E KEMP preside over the senate president And young Lewis Doug las gave up his seat as the sole rep resentative from Arizona to become director of the budget in the Roose velt administration As compared to the last con gress when it looked for a while as if death itself would decide what party would control the house the deaths and resignations have not been of much political significance Situation Changed However the recent death of Bolivar E Kemp representative from the sixth district of Louisiana may have changed the situation And they regard it so because of what it might mean to Louisianas P Long Long has been pretty constantly under fire from his political oppo nents back home since he came to the senate There has been a sena torial investigation of Louisiana politics since in Washing ton and the end may not yet be in sight Petitions to Senate Then too there have been peti tions to the senate from his politi foes in Louisiana demanding his H4 The

ONWORLD DEBTS Says Structure Must Be Changed No Mention of War Debts LONDON June 26 Senator James Couzens of Michigan Amer ican delegate stirred the world eco nomic conference today by declar ing in a speech that the worlds debt structure must be adjusted He emphasized the necessity of organizing creditors throughout the world and of establishing some form of permanent body to act in an advisory capacity between or ganized creditors and organized debtors Debts in General The republican senator did not mention war debts but referred to indebtedness in general Hewarned that this is in no sense to be con strued as an invitation to debtors able to pay to scale down their ob ligations Certainly it is not an invitation to default he said He urged worldwide action to raise prices and to increase the de mand for raw materials in his ad dress made before the aubcommls siou on immediate measures for fi nancial reconstruction India Joins Plan y he did not believe that prices can be raised by monetary means alone India indicated to the world conference today her willingness to cooperate in the rehabilitation of silver as projected in the resolu tion of Senator Key Pittman This was authoritatively disclosed after a meeting of the conference silver committee at which Sir George Shuter secretary of the treasury for India was present j Important Event I Americana and others interested in the rehabilitation of silver said this was the most important event which would have happened to force the program to a successful conclu sion India ia the worlds largest holder of silver having on hand some 400 million ounces Her adherence to the Pittman plan therefore is considered abso lutely vital for its success Exports say that if the nations holding silver agree to control the flow of the metal to the market then it will be easy to fix and main tain a price Essential to Plan Stabilization of the silver price is essential to the American plan by which onefifth of each nations cur rency coverage would be in silver If the price can be fixed and main tained then there is greater likeli hood of the Pittman resolution being adopted by the major nations at tending the conference Adherence by India advanced Senator Pittman towards his goal by a huge stride While the silver program has pro gressed so favorably there still is a hitch in the development of the American plan for restriction of wheat production The United States delegation ia continuing its drive to obtain adherence to what they consider to be one of the most im portant schemes before the confer ence Australia Holds Out Australia still was withholding support and the Americans were concentrating their efforts on Stan ley M Bruce chief Australian del egate Other major producers al ready are in general agreement for restriction The American program would provide for an increase in wheat prices through restriction Aus tralia disapproves this and holds for keeping the price so low as to in crease consumption thereby doing away with the necessity of reducing production It is understood Prime Minister Ramsay MacDonald or Great Brit ain Is anxious to see an agreement on wheat aa soon as possible in the belief that this would give to the world a great tangible achievement by the conference over which he presides There is much speculation concerning how far Australia will Turn n Page 1
