At the extreme left is President Roosevelt in a characteristically vigorous pose. He has launched a spending drive to cost $4,-500.000,000 (maybe even more) which he hopes will prime the pumps of recovery and inject new impetus into business. But the president cannot accomplish the gigantic and compli cated task alone, and the first men he must turn to for assistance are the "Bg Four" in congress—Vice President John Nance Garner, president of the senate; Speaker William B. Bankhead of the house; Ma jority Leader Alben Barkley of the senate, and Majority Leader Sam Rayburn of the house. After these aides have pushed the gigantic appropriations and authorizations through congress —and they promised to do Just that—money must be raised to cover the grants. Thats where Secretary of Treasury Henry Morgenthau and Budget Director Daniel Bell come into the picture. It is assumed they will borrow money on the govern ment's credit to foot the bill. With the appropriations approved and money provided, the men shown at the right of the strip of pictures above will be the ones to spend the cash in such a way that it will aid business. Wor'-s Progress Administrator Har.' L. Hopkins, extreme right, will supervise spending of the $1,2500,000,000 contemplated for WPA relief. Others who helped the president plan the drive—and who may help spend part of the money— are Housing Administrator Nathan Straus; First Assistant Secretary of Interior Ebert K. Bur-lew; Secretary of Interior Harold Ickes, and Federal Housing Administrator Stewart McDonald. TO LEGISLATORS DEFEATING NEW DEAL MEASURES* F.D.R.

Brimming with confidence, Hore-Belisha last night played darts with army privates while opening the, New Croydon drill hall, and recalled that Sir Francis Drake played bowls before he met the Spanish armada "But I know I have no armada to meet," he added, "everything is going to be very happy." As the war minister’s big plane headed toward Marseilles Prime' Minister Neville Chamberlain told 1 commons Hore-Belisha would pay ll Duce "a courtesy visit.” Lieut. Commander R. T. H Fletcher, laborite, asked with faint irony if the visit "has no political sig-1 nificance whatsoever?’’ • That is so,' the premier replied dryly Wanted, a GOOD slogan!

REPORTER-NEWS. Some things to bear in mind are that Abilene was runnerup for this year's WTCC convention and is inviting the 1939 meeting; that other towns that have said they would seek the 1939 meeting have played host to the WTCC since Abilene has done so. A slogan that will fit the occasion, the purpose of the delegation to Wichita, and last but by no means least, will create good will for Abilene is sought. Let s have em!

France (At the Spanish Border), April 14— (JP)—Hard-drivtng insurgent forces under General Miguel Aranda today captured the village of La Jana, bringing the advance guard of their southern wing within nine airplane miles of the Mediterranean coast. La Jana Is on the road between San Mateo, which fell to the insurgents earlier today, and the coastal city of Vinaroz, objective of the right wing of Generalissimo Francisco Franco’s great eastern drive to cut government Spain in two. Government defense lines in this sector were reported to be weakening. The government troops’ retreat to Reus, toward the coast, was cut off, it was declared. Insurgent field headquarters declared the movement was of great strategic importance. Government resistance was reported “growing feeble” in the face of the relentless insurgent attack in the San Mateo sector to the south, where Gen. Miguel Aranda's brigades were pushing down the Frame Killing Suspects Elude Starr Sheriff State And County Officers Blanket Border Highways RIO GRANDE CITY, April 14 -(/P>—State police, Texas rangers and county officers blanketed border highways and roads today after a man and his blonde woman companion, "hot” suspects in the Frome desert killings, dashed from a brushy hiding place and eluded Sheriff Gus Guerra of Starr county.

It involved de-sterlization of $1,-400,000,OOO of gold and a reduction by the federal reserve board of member bank reserve requirements which would add another $750,000,000 to the credit resources of the nation’s banks.
