RENO, NEVADA, MONDAY, DECEMBER 5, 1932 Five Cents S ARRIVE IN NGTON Doubt Felt That Repeal Will Win Today Southern Members STATIC Jf Are Grumbling Garner's Program Turbulent Session of Congress is Ahead WASHINGTON, Dec The test of 18th amendment repeal in the house tomorrow, coming sud- denly after 12 years, will plunge congress into a short session that promises to be turbulent and may affect vitally the incoming Roose- velt administration It was doubtful tonight whether Speaker John N. Garner's repeal move would win. Lsaders conceded the vote would be close, and might be decided by absentees. A num- ber of members, largely from the south, still were grumbling at the extraordinary procedure that Gar- ner has adopted, and only lack a champion to break into revolt. Stm Hope for Victory Garner still hoped for victory to- night as did his lieutenants who have been whipping their forces into line. None, however, loudly fore- cast success. Democratic Floor Leader Henry T. Rainey and Repre- sentative John McDuffie, demo- cratic whip, were at their capitol of- fices making a final check. "It's going to be said Mc- Duffie. "Some are still complain- ing about the unusual procedure on the opening day. Some object to the itate oL ratification which thV Garner amendment provides They want to use the state legislature method of ratification Others want protec- tion for dry states and a guarantee against return of the saloon-." Drama Forecast This spectacular and unpreced- ented event on the opening day, coupled with the invasion of 2500 "hunger marchers" who converged upon the capital tonighu held more potential drama than at any ses- iion opening m recent years. Grave responsibilit.es face this final ses- sion of the 73rd congress which goes out of existence on March 4 The 18th amendment repeal test holds attention the opening day, but 1 behind and pressing for considera- Explosion tion are a number of farm relief, Volstead act modifica- tion, war debts, economy and taxes. Failure of beer legislation and farm relief would precipitate an extra session soon after President-elect Program of Opening Day In Congress WASHINGTON, Dec program for the opening day of congress tomor- row follows: SENATE Called to order at noon by Vice President Curtis.

Adjoums after this business completed Youth Locks Up Man in Battery Shop and Escapes With Escapes I Time to See Bandit Flee n SPARKS, Dec. young ban- dit entered the Sparks Service sta- tion, 1445 B street, at p m. to- day, pushed an automatic into Tom Fnberg's ribs and escaped with cash which he took from the till. Pnberg, who is attendant at the station, said that the bandit, alone, walked into the station, produced a gun, and, holding him at bay, took the money. The robber then forced Friberg to walk to a battery shop 50 yards in the rear of the station, where the bandit locked him up. Friberg said that he escaped through a rear door of the battery shop, just in time to see the bandit running down Fifteenth street. He called police, who scoured the neighborhood, the railroad yards and tracks, but could find no one answering tha man'.s description. Police believe the man had a car parked in the neighborhood of the service1 station. The. -mon-Sy .was in silver and bills. Ed George, proprietor of the place, and his mother, Mrs. E M.

FATAL Walker Insists He Is Out of Politics Colorado Democrat Flies to Washington For Senate Opening WASHINGTON, Dec. The capital watched with interest tonight the dramatic flight being made by Walter Walker, a Colorado newspaper publisher, to be in Ins senate seat when congress con- venes on Monday. Walker, a democrat, was appoint- ed by Governor Adams to succeed Senator Waterman who died during the recess. The publisher was de- feated in the recent election by Karl C. Schuyler, a republican. Normally Walker would not have served in the senate Schuyler would have been sworn in on the first day of the "lame duck" session. An error by the clerk of Hinsdale county m failing to certify the elec- tion of Schuyler to state authorities delayed dispatch of the republican's certification papers to the U. S. senate. Thus, Walker will serve at least two days pending arrival of Schuy- yer's credentials. As a member of the senate, the published would be entitled to col- lect about m mileage allowed by law for attendance at each ses- sion of congress. Schuyler here to greet him. The senator-elect finds the situation amusing. He told the United Press he planned to go to the senate on the opening day "to pay my re- spects to Mr. Walker." Democratic leaders indicated to- night they would make no attempt to organize the senate for the short session although after Walker in sworn in they would have a majority of one in that body. The alignment would be: Democrats, 48; republi- cans, 47; farmer-labor, 1. It. did not appear tonight that Walker would have an opportunity to cast a vote on any vital legisla- tion in the few days he will serve in the senate. The opening days usualy are confined to routine reso- lutions. KANSAS CITY, Mo., Dec.

'MAYOR AL' Smith Asked to Run in New York London Body Asks 'Bartex' System Be Adopted LONDON, Dec. an artificial new unit of value, may soon take its place be- sidp the pound sterling1, the dollar and the yen if the London chamber of commerce is successful with its scheme to solve the grave problem created by exchange restrictions. The plan is a modern version of the worlds oldest form of commer- cial transaction simple bartering. To facilitate international pay- ment; it would have its own unit cf currency, known as based on goods rather than gold or silver. There are now 35 nations over I the world which have restrictions on the export of their currency or' gold. Economic experts are unani- mous in the opinion that these restnctions constitute one of the greatest barriers to returning pros- perity. The forthcoming world economic conference may find rome means of overcoming them, but no generally acceptable solution is yet in sight. The British government, some tune m the next few weeks, will be asked to introduce the new world-wide bartering arrangement. TSITSIHAR Manchuria, Mon- day, Dec. combined might of two Japanese armies today was thrown against the Chinese General Su Ping-Wen in an effort to restore Manchurian control of a large part of Heilungkiang province and the important Chinese Eastern railroad. A Nippon-Dempo dispatch de- clared Su's army was retreating up the railway from the heart of the province toward Hailar, where his headquarters are located Scouting airplanes returning here today reported the west end of the Hsmgan tunnel was covered by snow. Observers in the planes said no trains had passed through the tun- nel fo rseveral days They assumed it was damaged, and that General Su's retreat was thereby blocked between Pokutu and Hsingan. If their deductions were correct, Su's army is from its headquarters from the advancing Japanese mili- tary machine by any means other than marching through the deep snow, in sub-zero weather, over a mountain range. The Japanese advance would like- j wise be made difficult. 1 Japanese bombing planes carried their loads of destruction over the rugged Gikhingan mountains and dropped them on Su's headquarters, dispatches said The general's resi- dence was a target. Reports of Japanese success were in conflict. One dispatch declared General Miyamoto and Haltori of the imperial Japanese army hoped to seize Hailar within a few days Another said Su's forces had aban- doned the railroad and had fled to the southwest in automobiles and on camels 2500 CAMP NEAR DOOR OF CAPITOL From Every Section of Nation Trek Forces of Jobless Accompanied b> her prospec- tive daughter-m-laiv, Mar- gaiet Phillips of New York, Mrs Chiisloyher Matthewson, widow of ihc famous National league pitcher of a decade ago, sailed ficm San Francisco the other day on the Dollar liner, Fiesident, Coohdge, for Shang- hai Mist Phillips will become the buide of Plight Lieutenant Malthewson, Ji., upon their ar- rival in The photo Eh OWE Miss Phillips.
