in ac cusing bis own partys adminis tration of playing politics with re lief in his home state he by no means is the only one to make the complaint The o t h e rs are more dis creet they mur mur instead of ourse republican charges of the kind are to be expected Uiat there are so many disgruntled dem ocrats is more surprising Yet it is explainable If politics had been played to the anry

such of it as may have been done has been done mainly at the dictation of Democrats Chairman and Postmaster General James A And Farley has dictated CONFERENCE ON TAXES WILL BE HELD NEXT WEEK Senate Passes Bill to Curtail Large Farm Payments TAX STORY ON PAGE 2 WASHINGTON ff Senators preoccupied with thought of the coming party conventions paved the way Saturday for a last minute struggle with the house over taxes Arrangements were made for a senate committee of eight to con fer with house spokesmen while both chambers are in recess for the republican convention next week in an effort to reconcile differences on Farley largely in CO velts what he evidently has nceived to be President Roose velts reelection chances without much regard for the prospect of lo Sl candidatesrepresentatives and even senators Of course there are a few moguls in both houses of congress whose recommendations have had respect ful consideration but those of the rank and file of legislators have been rather cavalierly treated Naturally the ones whom the ad ministration has poohpoohed in the matter of appointments are mighty indignant May Haye Overdone Itisnot altogether certain that Farlev has not overdone his policy of subordinating local candidacies to the national administrations sup posed advantage It may prove to have bred a deal of influential democratic disaffection which will profit the G 0 P on election day If it was an error it is too late to correct it now anyway Farley has gone to the extreme of giving many of the new deals emergency jobs to antinew dealers This may sound very nonpar tisan and openminded but another interpretation it is open to is that his aim is to keep the antis quiet In Washington this is very no ticeable Full of Newspapermen This town is full of newspaper men many of whom were jobless when the new dealers came into power The new deal agencies need ed publicity experts wholesale and it employed them from the unem ployed journalistic class by scores r most of them LOOK INSIDE FOR or were antis Far be it from me to find fault with the new deal for giving a job to a jobless antinew deal news paperman But if the new deal reckons that by hiring that chap it has him con verted it has another guess coming Ideas Not Changed He faithfully turns out mirneo ianhed pronew deal propaganda out he sits around the National Press club and talks to his fellow scribes to whom that same propa ganda is being franked by Postmas ter General Farley as antinew dealerishly as ever In other words he doesnt believe in the new deal in the long run and constantly is negativing its teach ings to the very folk that his writ ten stuff is supposed to be convinc ing Not that Farley has not accom plished considerable hushing up But he also has created a deal of enmity He is slick but is in some danger of slipping on his own banana peel the revenue legislation The tax bill passed by the senate Friday night designed to raise included an undis tributed corporation income tax considerably lower than levies sug gested by President Roosevelt and passed by the house Curtail Large Benefits The senate Saturday passed and sent to the house a bill to curtail large benefit payments under the soil conservation farm act control program The bill would carry out recom mendations made this week by Pres ident Roosevelt and Secretary Wal lace Benefit payments of 52000 to would be cut 25 per cent and that portion of payments in ex cess of would be cut in half Congressional conferees reached an agreement on the long disputed antiprice discrimination

monthly bulletr released Saturday that for som iime past a number of the nationa indexes have been registering around 100 and the erroneous iro pression has been spread aroun ihat insofar as these indexes ar concerned the depression is over Emphatically Not Case Emphatically this is not th case Professor Davies stated Th 100 base for national industrial pro duction is taken from the years 192 to 1925 Hence the present figure simply mean that business ha reached the level of those years Normally he said the crease of population and improve ments in industrial technique woul result in an increase in production of 2 to 3 per cent a year The nor mal then should be 125 or 130 Junior Chamber Has Election Takes Up List of Resolutions MEMPHIS Tenn na tional Junior Chamber of Commerce turned

Votes on First Ballot CLEVELAND flat re usal of Senator Vandenberg of Michigan to accept the republican vice presidential nomination Satur day overshadowed a series of vigor ous objections to the claims of sup lorters of Governor Alf M Landon if Kansas Landon supporters who had raised their claims of delegate strength to 400 votes on the first ballot said they had expected no support from Michigan Otherwise hey would not comment Whether the Vandenberg with drawal presaged a shift in the alignments of Landon opposition vas left for the moment a matter of debate and of much speculation in the citys crowded hotel lobbies Discussion on White Already there had arisen a dis cussion of the leanings of William Vhite of Kansas toward liberal platform expressions on minimum wages laborbusiness regulation and social security and whether they might diminish Lan dons support among eastern con servatism White said Saturday he would formulateno platform proposal on minimumwages or decide whether to advance a constitutional amend ment to permit states to enact such laws until he had talked with Gov ernor Landon However from the headquarters of Col Frank Knox Chicago pub lisher came a prediction by Ed ward Hayes his campaign leader that Knox would poll from 230 to 261 votes on the first ballot Tick Up Support Other leaders there said Colonel Knox would pick up support from favorite son states after the first ballot The drive which the Knox forces and those of Senator Borah of Idaho have directed against Gov ernor Landon was resumed with a statement from Hayes that the re publicans could not carry Illinois if we have to start off every speech by apologizing for the fact that our candidate has supported the new deal For the most part the disposition of the Landon managers was to ac cept the attacks without retaliation Talk of trying to force a firstbal lot choice quieted somewhat as friends of the Kansan sought to calm the storm and to assure ail rivals they would have a run for their money Landon Claims Denied Nevertheless the Landon claim of 400 votes drew immediate sharp replies from both the Kuox and Borah carnps and was followed in a few hours by circulation of an un signed handbill urging the dele gates to look the field over and get away from this grasshopper storm It was apparent that the Will Not Accept ARTHUR H VANDENBERG RIGHTF Professor Davies maintained that the slow increase in consumption is not providing an adequate in centive for business to invest freely in new equipment although inven tions call for new capital invest ment Increase Is Shown The monthly business survey for Iowa shows an increase of 579 per cent in residiential building con tracts and an increase of 546 per cent in total building This repre sents a slight

following Iowa postmaster nominations to the sen ate Arthur R Otto Bettendorf William T Oakcs Clinton Leon ard A Moran Granger Mary M Hollingsworth Marion Robert C Campbell Mount Pleasant Glen C Bowdish Springville Lester P contest was assuming a bitterness which hitherto has been notably lacking The declared purpose of John M Hamilton the Landon generalissi mo was to avoid pressure which might leave hard feelings after ward Still the talk of urging mat ters to a conclusion on the initial roll call did not die out entirely in other Landon quarters An earnest discussion of the subject seemed to be progressing in the inner councils of the Kansas delegation The prospective platform also came in for increasing attention II was disclosed that several groups of delegates some meeting in the west and some in New York and Washington had been at work put ting their ideas into words As a result something resembling a batch of tentative planks were be ing passed around quietly today for preliminary inspection Lack Official Standing One of the still lack any sort of official standing was for a constitutional amendment to permit the states to pass mini mum wage laws Another would turn over the administration of re lief to the states A third would con demn compulsory crop curtailment but propose a farm subsidy to equal ize prices These volunteer efforts at plat form making appeared to have struck several snags There was only a faint indication of what the party might be heading for with respect to the currency issue the tariff and STATEMENT ON CONVENTION EVE Vandenberg Says He
