WORLD NAVY CUT President Roosevelt Vetoes Big rtlf youre one of those who occa sionally writes a letter to your con gressman a pertinent question to ask would be why havent many of tbe codes adopted by the NRA End AAA contained essential pro visions for standardizing and grad ing foodstuffs Resisted by Manufacturers Some of them do but persistent resistance by manufacturers has emasculated mnny of the proposals offered by the Consumers Advisory board and Consumers counsel Pressure political and otherwise has prevented the adoption of pro visions which would assure consum ers of getting what they pay for An almost unbelievable amount of propaganda has flooded the cap ital and the nation in fighting the proposed Copeland bill for regulat ing labeling sole and use of drugs foods and cosmetics Drastic revi sions have eliminated many of the objections of the group which for business reasons would prefer to retain the pure food and drugs act tinder which the government can not prosecute a manufacturer even if his drug kills unless he has been so careless as to make a misstate ment on the label CONWAY GUILTY ANAMOSA March 27 J M Conway former auditor of the Ana mosa

received REJECTS ACT TO BOOST BENEFITS GIVEN VETERANS House Gets Ready for Vote Expected to Sustain Veto WASHINGTON March 27 President Roosevelt today vetoed the independent offices appropria tion bill because it carried increased allowances for war veterans and government workers exceeding his budget by 5228000000 I am compelled to take note of the fact he said in a message to congress that in creating this ex cess the congress has failed at the same time to provide a similar sum by additional taxation Decrease in Funds Moreover to the extent that the amount of money appropriated by the congress is in excess of my bud get estimates and in the absence o provision for additional revenues there must be a decrease in the funds available for essential relie work It was the first veto of a major piece of legislation by the president and congressional leaders predicted he would be sustained The house planned to vote imme diately whether to override the veto Deeper Consideration My disapproval of this bill said the presidentin conclusion is not based solely upon the consideration of dollars and cents There is a deeper consideration You and I are concerned with the principles herein enunciated I trust that the congress will con tinue to cooperate with me in our common effort to restore general prosperity and relieve distress F R Speaks Firmly The president spoke firmly about the increases voted by congress for veterans repeating his stand for the principles outlined to the Amer ican Legion convention in Chicago last year I am very confident he said that the American people includ ing the overwhelming majority of veterans themselves approve these principles and in the last analysis will support them The president reviewed the effort of special boards to seek justice for those veterans entitled to govern ment compensation for service con nected disabilities Outlines Modification He outlined the modification mad by himself in the veterans economj act of a year ago and said that il justice required further changes he would make them It is a simple and undeniable fact he said that the United States in terms of compensation and in terms of hospitalization ha done and is doing infinitely mor for our veterans and their depend ents than any other government What you and I are seeking i justice and fairness in the Individ ual case Bill Now Dead The whole

botanist of note and an historical writer of more than ordinary abil ity Although his supervision of the university as president from 1914 to 1917 was eminently successful much of his fame was due

William F Ogburn of he University of Chiago said Dr Wirt states that the new ealers hold out no hope for recov ry so that a revolution may take lace I challenge him to name one man in the socalled brain trust who is not interested in the welfare and recovery of the country Only Kerensky Among other assertions in Dr Wirts letter were that an unnamed brain truster told him months ago that Mr Roosevelt was only the Kerensky of the revolution then being planned that he would be supplanted by a Stalin and that some presidential advisers were seeking to hamper business recov ery to bring about this end The Indiana pedagog has since seen quoted as saying he could dis close the name of his informant when the welfare of the country de manded Said Speaker Rainey along this line in urging a justice department investigation Little or Big If there are men little or big connected with the recovery move ment who have made the state ments he alleges whether they were joking or serious Dr

Vote and investigation and labor to this end that I gained the information of what the brain trusters are so perilously near doing Dr Wirt said economics is not too esoteric for high school students

business and industry by the gov ernment Thus if you wanted well say to go into the grocery busi ness you would first have to get the permission of your government But if the government had decided
