At the same time, the secretary of state emphasized anew that regardless of whether the representor ives of several nation were in Washington at the same time, the government proposes to converse with them separately. He made this statement when informed that former Premier Herriot of France had moted up his sailing date by two days in order to join in the Washington discussions between President Roosevelt and Prime Minister MacDonald, of Great Britain. In the face of reports of dissatisfactions among the smaller nations at not being included among the ll invited to send special representatives, Secretary Hull said he had not yet had opportunely to consider the matter of extending the list of invitations. He pointed out that all countries will be given full opportunity to join i he discussions through their regular diplomatic representatives here. Going further into the matter of a new tariff policy aimed at reviving international trade, Hull characterized as antiquated, obsolete and bewhiskered the contention which he said had been raised first some 60 years ago that the result would be to flood the country with the products of cheap foreign labor to the detriment of the American workman. He remarked that persons taking ! this view should go out and talk with the 13,000,000 American wage earners who, he said, have been thrown out of employment under the operation of the highest tariffs in American history. For every dollar of curtailment of American imports. Hull told reporters that from $3 to $5 of goods C ontinued on Page .Seven McClure bill veto UPHELD BV DR.

President Calls for Freer Trade Flow Between Si>ter Republics Mutual Helpfulness, Sympathetic Understanding. Stressed WASHINGTON, April 12 — (UP> — In an address at the Pan-American Union today President Roots? vt called for the immediate breakin down of “unnecessary and artific.a barriers and restrictions which now hamper the healthy flow' of trade between the peoples of the American republics.” Mr. Roosevelt explained that it was wtally important that every nation of the western hemisphere, individually, take such action without further delay. The Presidents address was made before the special session of the governing board of the union on the occasion of the celebration of Pan-American Day. The speech was translated into Portuguese and Spanish. In his address, Mr. Roosevelt took cognizance of the undeclared wars now going on between Bolivia and Paraguay and Colombia and Peru, asserting that "I cannot fail to be disturbed by any armed strife between neighbors. I do not hesitate to say to you, the distinguished members of the governing board of the Pan-American Union, that I regard existing conflicts between four of our sister republics as a backward step.” "Your Americanism and mine.” he said, “must be a structure built of confidence, cemented by a sympathy which recognizes only equality and fraternity. It finds its source and being in the hearts of men and dwells in the temple of the intellect/’ The President asserted that he looked upon the Union as the outward expression of the spiritual unity of the Americas and said that this unity must be courageous and vital in its elements He added that humanity must look to It as one of the great stabilizing influences in world affairs. The text of the address: “I rejoice in this opportunity to participate in the celebration of ’Pan-American Day’ and to extend on be- j half of the people of the United States a fraternal greeting to our sister American republics. The celebration of Pan-American Day’ in this building, dedicated to international! goodwill and co-operation, exempli- i Aes a unity of thought and purpose among the peoples of this hemis-1 phere.

Williams, the County Commissioners yesterday decided that tax bills this year will combine in one item the millage for county purposes and that for poor district purposes. The Court decision ruled th .t a poor district may receive its needed funds, according to its approved requisition, from the county treasurer without waiting for the poor taxes to be collected. Heretofore, the poor district and general county taxes have been printed on the tax bills as separate items, as the taxes for each purpose were levied separately and were credited in separate accounts.
