Cummings of Colorado Cummings elected to the house two years ago for the first time drew an as signment on the very important committee on agriculture There appeared before his com mittee a few days ago a man by the name of A J S Weaver from the AAA to discuss the question of sugar quotas Mr Cummings sets forth in his official biography for the congres sional directory that he was active in the formation of the Mountain States Beet Growers Marketing as sociation has been president or vice president since its incorporation about 15 years ago and has been closely identified with economic pol icies affecting the sugar beet in dustry With Repercussions When Witness Weaver came be fore the agriculture committee to discuss sugar quotas therefore Cummings was all sat for him And when Witness Weaver made the statement If further expansion of the industry beet sugar is con tinued the United States will be saddled possibly forever with a high cost industry which is not a fair thing to contemplate for con sumers Cummings went into ac tion lie asked thit give us kind ofslioliia the arm iis out of businesswhile we are partly un conscious That interrogation made in com mittee probably

Romance Made G 0 P CANDIDATE Roosevelt Airmail Proposal Called Impractical AIRCRAFT FIRM OFFICIAL TALKS TO SENATE BODY Tells of Loans He Made to Postoffice Official During 1930 WASHINGTON March S Paul Henderson vice president of United Aircraft and Transport Cor poration testified before the senate airmail investigating committee to day that he had loaned in 1930 to Chase C Gove deputy sec ond assistant postmaster general under W Irving Glover Henderson previously had termed impractical President Roosevelts proposals for retdm of the airmail to provide carriers under new terms Henderson said in the last year or tvf he had destroyed the notes evi denirng the loans totaling 10000 Close Personal Friend Gove he said was a close per sonal friend of long standing He told me he had been gam bling in the stock market with all the money he had in the world Henderson explained Meanwhile the New York Curb exchange agreed to furnish the sen ate banking committee a list of sell ers of air company stocks prior to cancellation of the airmail con tracts and Chaiman McKellar of the senatepOE toff ice committee told ies whoae mail contracts were can celled would have to undergo a thorough

by the president Henderson asserted at least a year would be required to build up a smoothrunning organi zation Even at that men would have to be employed from old companies Senate and house committees has tened to whip into bill form the oresidents suggestion for the re turn of the mails to private car riers on the basis of honest pay ment for honest service Avoid Past Evils The president in a letter dispatch ed suddenly to the capitol last night suggested speed in letting new con tracts And to avoid evils of the past he proposed these ideals for legislation Competitive bidding for contracts not to exceed three years with fix ed maximum compensation cancel lation as a penalty for noncompeti tive agreements and a six months qualifying period after contracts are awarded He proposed that future handling of airmail routes and pay be placed with the interstate commerce com mission and that a ban be estab lished against companies with sub sidiary connections He also would rule out the transfer or sale of con tracts and excessive salaries or con tracts Subject for Debate One suggestion appeared certain today to be surrounded by consid erable debate Mr Roosevelt said Obviously also no contract should be made with any companies old or new any of whose officers were party to the obtaining of for mer contracts under circumstances which were clearly contrary to good faith and public policy Republican opponents of the con tract cancellation have contended private contractors had no hearings to establish their individual guilt or innocence on these

chosen representatives to work out reforms that will save to the people rights of property liberty and protection I believe in the best education we can afford for the growing genera tion and enlightment on subjects of government for all people Politi cal leadership should not be con trolled within groups but should be meted out so that younger men may have opportunity to perform service
