This would be in addition to a $1,260,000,000 relief appropriation, which would let the Works Progress administration carry a peak load of unemployed from next July I to February I, 1039. FINAL PARLEY TODAY Both the public works and relief proposals were expected to be covered in a presidential message to congress tomorrow noon. Its first draft was gone over by five cabinet members and three other administration officials at last night's three-hour meeting. The president will have a final talk on the message with congressional leaders at 4 p. rn. (CST). Those invited were Barkley of Kentucky and Rayburn of Texas, j democratic leaders of senate and house, respectively; Chairmen Glass (D-Va) and Taylor (D-Colo) of the senate and house appropriations committee.;, and Senator Byrnes (D-SCi and Representatives Cannon <D-Mo> and Woodrum (D-Va) of those committees. Official White House sources had disclosed earlier that the message would discuss not only the state of affairs in this country but | also touch on conditions abroad j It probably will be followed tomorrow night by a 45-minute ‘fire- ; side chat" in which the president may explain to the nation his views on the general economic situation and the reasons for his new program. Time has been reserved on the KBC, CBS and Mutual radio chains beginning at 9:30 p .rn., j Central Standard time. Preparation of the message and j the speech occupied most of Mr. Roosevelt’s attention today. Absent at yesterday's* conference ! were the democratic congressional leaders, including Vice-President Gamer, who has been widely reported as looking with disfavor on any renewal of heavy government spending.

The service at Hardin-Simmons university was the first of a series to be held throughout the state, most of them on Sunday, in commemoration of the 47-year-old school's founders. Singing cf the Hardln-Simmons anthem opened the program, after which Dr. Julius Olsen, dean of the school of arts and sciences, read the favorite scripture of Dr. James B. Simmons, the man for whom the school was named. The anniversary talk was by Gordon Weir, HSU graduate, who told several hundred students and visitors something of the school's history. MRS. PENDER PRESIDES Mrs H. A Pender, president of the Alumni and Ex-Students association, presided fo rthe program, introducin gnext Mrs. Dan Gallagher, HSU graduate and daughter of the late Dr. O. H. Cooper, who was president of the school several years. ‘.We come to psfc homage," said Mrs. Gallagher, "not only to those men who made possible the birth of Hardin-Simmons university, but also to those who in large measure. were responsible for her early growth. What those men gave, we cannot even begin to measure. They builded not alone for their own tim**, but for the future.” Mrs. Gallagher called the names of 32 founders, trustees and presidents, as the bell that pealed from the belfry in the school's first administration building was tolled.

Attacking provisions of the senate tax bill which would eliminate the undistributed profits tax opposed by business and substitute a flat capital gains tax for the graduated system now employed, Mr. Roosevelt wrote chairman of the senate finance and bouse ways and means committee: The repeal of the undistributed profits tax and the reduction of the tax on capital gains - Lucas Leads In Illinois Election Horner Candidate Increases Margin Over Chicagoan Williamson, who promised to send him a cat.
