Senator John J. McClure. Delaware county, whose negative voted caused a mild sensation, will move for a resurrection of the bill Monday night. If thp reconsideration is granted he will offer amendments. If the changes are incorporated in the measure McClure's Note will be "aye" on the roll call. The Delaware County Senator proposes first and foremost a referendum. In the shape in which the bill was defeated it would legalize sports in communities where licenses were granted locally and the referendum could be held later. Under McClure's plan, Sunday baseball during the approaching summer would be impossible because the people would not have an opportunity to pass upon proposed modification until the November election. ’* on a defeated bill may be reconsidered within five legislative days if two Senators who voted in the negative make the demand. A seconder to McClure's motion would not be difficult to obtain, it is believed, but that in itself permits only another roll call on the bill and would not necessarily assure its passage. It is senatorial courtesy to permit reconsideration and still allow the man seconding the motion to vote "no” on the second roll call The bill failed Tuesday by two votes, the count being 26 to 24. If the amendments are inserted and McClure furnishes the only change from the original roll cali. the vote would Ire tied at 25 and Lieut. Gov. E. C. Shannon, presiding Senate officer, would have to break the deadlock.

WASHINGTON, March 16 'UP' President Roosevelt’s $500.000 000 economy bill, carrying extensive savings rn veterans expenditures and Federal .salaries, was given firwd House approval today and sent to the President for signature. The chamber accepted without protest Senate amendments cutting some $7,000,000 from the estimate of total savings, thus completing Congressional action on an unprecedented grant of power to the Chief Executive. It was understood the decision not to resist alterations in the original draft of the measure was made after consultation with Mr. Roosevelt’s advisers. In combination with the beer legalization and taxing bill, now pending, in the Senate, and retrenchments possible through governmental reorganization, the economy bill is expected to effect tile long-sought balanced budget. The principal Senate liberalizations of the drastic bill are as follows: An amendment allowing payment of war risk insurance claims already filed but not yet adjudicated. An amendment authorizing the President, In his discretion, to allow hospitalization of non service-connected disabilities. Amendments forbidding the removal from the rolls of any direct service connected cases or Spanish War veterans over 62 years of age. but allowing compensation reduction in each case. An amendment allowing domiciliary carr for tuberculosis and neuropsychiatric cases not directly traceable to service origin.

S. Route I, one and five-tenth miles. A storm of protest against the proposed appointment of a superintendent of police is sweeping the city and local merchants are combining to fight the pas. age of the ordinance, which will lie brought up for second and final leadings at the meeting of city council next Tuesday. One merchant who is bitterly opposed to the move, declared this morning that the merchants will demand to know of council how they decided to find $2,000. the salary to be paid the police superintendent, when the city fathers were unable to find a fraction of that amount for better street lighting in the central business zone. a matter that has been agitated for three years. Last year, a committee of merchants appeared in a body before council, and asked that better lights be installed in tile central business zone. Flans for the lighting had already been drawn and such plans submitted to the city authorities. The answer was, that council could make no definite promise, as many taxes were unpaid, and, as far os could be ascertained, ii would Ive impossible to even promise the lighting of a single block, because of the lack of available cash. The $2,000 salary, as set fort ii in the ordinance, will not be an addition to the budget, as passed for tile current year. The money will have to be taken from some other appropriation and transferred lo the Department of Public Affairs. The merchants also point out that a superintendent placed in the position to raise the efficiency of the police department is an admission that no one on the force at the present time is capable of producing the results desired, and such an admission warrants a close investigation of how (tie department Is functioning at present, with the view of making changes, according to close observers, It Is planned to call a meeting of the merchants before the end of this week. so that their plan of battle may be outlined before next Tuesday. It Is also understood that, the committees that advocated a retrenchment program will co-operate with the merchants in opposing the passage of the ordinance, STOCKS SOAR IN FAREY MARKET Trading at (treater Volume* on N.
