Major Post Was Expected By HERBERT PLtJMMER WASHINGTON Nov 19 Ob servers here generally have thought it only a matter of time before Marriner S Ec cles of Utah would be found invested with one of the biggest titles under the new deal His elevation by President Roosevelt to gov ernor of the fed eral reserve board more than fulfills this ex pectation Eccles firstat tracted the atten tion of official Washington a few days prior to the inauguration of President Roosevelt when he ap peared as a witness before the sen ate finance committee to give his ideas as to what should be done to put this country and the world on a stable economic basis His suggestions were so drastic that they were criticized in some quarters as highstrung and ex travagant Others explained them as due to the mental excitement and confusion of the times What has happened since New Deal Program Among the things Eccles urged just a little more than a week before the launching of the new deal were unemployment relief greater public works expenditures the domestic allotment farm relief plan and the refinancing of farm mortgages He was specific in some of his proposals For example he advo cated giving the states outright 500000000 on a per capita basis meet unemployment relief for the remainder of that year He said HASS HELD ON CHARGE OF FRAUD Negro Admits Slaying 2 White Children BODIES OF GIRLS government funds for construction activities should be increased to pulillcvwbrks loans In a word Eccles program as a whole proved to be almost identical with that of the new deal In January of 1934 he was made an assistant to Secretary Morgen thau as a treasury liason represen tative with other agencies having to do with banking and finance Appointment Significant Eccles1 appointment is regarded as significant here principally for two reasons In the first place an outandout new dealer assumes one of the strongest posts in the ad ministration And secondly for the first time since the federal reserve system was devised by President Wilson and Senator Glass of Vir ginia in 1913 it will be governed by a man from west of the Missis sippi river In the past the real burden of di recting the course of the federal re serve system has rested upon the shoulders of such men as Strong and Harrison governors of the New York reserve bank Eccles will bring to the office a wide and practical banking experi ence of his own He is hailed here as a newstyle capa ble of seeing the whole picture of recovery and reconstruction SKULLSCRUSHED Three Men and Woman Taken Away After Questioning
