Enough forthcoming veto by President Hoover of the Muscle Shoals bill were claimed today by Senator Watson, leader. the Republican Confident of one or two more votes than the one-third required to sus- tain the veto, Watson said lie would ask the Senate to vote on the veto as aoon as possible after it.is received. However, there was no assurance that action could be taken at once. The contsitution requires that a veto message must be spread upon the journal before it can be voted upon. That means the message must ac- tually be transcribed into the Senate a process that will neces- sitate considerable time. President Hoover is writing his fifth message of the last two weeks, this time turning-down the modified Korrls Muscle Shoals bill.' The message probably will be com- pleted and sent to Congress within a fc hours, according to a responsible source. Such action would mean the death of the legislation, since there. Is in- sufficient time remaining befo_rc ad- journment at noon tomorrow for Congress to pass, the-measure over a veto. The message Is understood to icrth the President's well known opposition to government ownership or operation proposals. Some years ago he indicated he considered Mus- cle Shoals, the giant nitrate and power project on the Tennessee River, an exception to his general rule It was built In wartime by the government so the question o: ownership was eliminated. There were other features which placed I1 In a special category. The president expanded tills in- terpretation in a statement Issued Itst Saturday. He stated then the embodied In the bill before him "the whole question of changing tiie Federal policy from regulation of utilities to their own- ership and operation." At that time he promised the measure would be considered without respect to the political Issue which has grown up around It. He said he would base his decision on ths business of Muscle Shoals.

The unsettled question, which was the subject of consultations which the Mahatma Gandhi continued to conduct, concerned return of confis- cated property of volunteers in the independence movement and rein- statement of dismissed government servants. As a result of agreement between Gandhi and Sir George Schuster, rep- resenting Lord Inrin, the Viceroy, the salt tax problem was solved, by granting permission lor natives liv- ing along the sea coast to gather, manufacture and sell salt which pre- viously had been prohibited because of the salt monopoly held by British Interests.
