Wisconsin Rapids, Wis., Wednesday, March 1, 1933. Single Copy Five Cents HINDENBURG ISSUES "ANTI-TREASON" DECREE SENATE FAVORS TEN PER CENT SALARY WAIVER UPPER HOUSE REFUSES TO CUT PAY OF FUTURE LEGIS- LATORS BUT VOTES TO RE- TURN PART OF OWN SALAR- IES TO STATE. Wis., March The state senate emerged from a legislative salary wrangle today avowing that the total salaries paid to the present lawmakers should be cut 10 per cent through a waiver plan but refusing to reduce the pay of future legislatures. Some Contribute More By a vote of 28 to 2 the upper house adopted a resolution by Sen- j ator Gettelman, Milwaukee Republi- can calling for salary waivers with the understanding that members receive income in addition tc the a month the state pays them shall contribute more than 10 per cent so that those who live en- tirely on their state pay may con- tribute less. The resolution was sent at once to the assembly where a few weeks ago a flat 10 per cent waiver reso- lution was defeated without a single favorable vote. Kill Reduction Bills Bills by Senator Griswold, West Salem, and Severson, lola, to pay! future legislators a biennium instead of were killed. Sever- son's bill, fixing the pay schedule at a day for not more than 100 days was beaten 26 to 6: The Gris- wold bill for a salary of a month for not more than 10 months was killed by the narrow margin of- 16 to 15. The Gettelman waiver resolution is likely to be received in more fa- vorable spirit than the lower house displayed toward the flat 10 per cent cut because it seeks to average the cuts according to ability to take them. No member can be forced to accept a reduction if he doesn't want to but if the resolution achieves its goal the total reduction will be around Reads Tax Reports Gettelman took up the cudgels to- day for the assemblymen who had previously voted against a cut and startled the senate by reading the income tax reports of four members, including himself, to illustrate his contention that pay waivers should be averaged. He read off the incomes as fol- lows: Senator Goodland, Racine: 229; 1930, 1931, Senator Mehigan, Milwaukee 1929, 1930, Senator Severson, lola: 1929, 449; 1930, 1931, Senator Gettelman: 1929, .1930, 1931, These were singled out by Gettel- man because the senators involved all were authors of pay cut meas- ures. He charged that resolutions for a flat scale of waivers were proposed only to put the assembly on the spot by members who wanted to become "the men of the hour." Nine Men, One Woman Constitute New Cabinet Cordell Hull Secretary of State W. H. Woodin Secretary of Treasury Claude A. Swanson Secretary of Navy George Bern Secretary of War PRESIDENT-ELECT COMPLETES HIS PICKS THREE SECRETARIES AND MAKES FINAL CABINET APPOINTMENTS, INCLUDING MISS PERKINS AND ROPER. Hyde Park, N. Y., March (.T) Roosevelt complet- ed the selection of his official fam- ily today and with a serious mind and light heart turned toward the White House. He picked "Louis, Mac and Steve" for his M. Howe, senior secretary, and Marvin H. j Mclntyre, of Kentucky, and Step- 'hen T. Early, of Virginia, as his other chief aides in the White House. The cabinet was completed offi- cially last night with the announce- ments of Miss Frances Perkins, New York state commissioner of labor, as the secretary of labor and Dan- iel C. Roper, of South Carolina, as secretary of commerce. So far as immediate appointments are concerned, Mr. Roosevelt has finished his task and has surround- not meet these qualifications. Labor Labor Dislikes Selection of Miss Perkins Washington, March liam Green, president of the Amer- ican Federation of Labor, said in a statement today the officers and members of the federation were "keenly disappointed over President- Elect Roosevelt's selection of a sec- retary of labor." The statement by Green came af- ter officials of the national league of women voters, the woman's party and other prominent women had joined in praising the selection of Miss Frances Perkins for the labor post. Green said that "labor has con- sistently contended that the depart- ment of labor should be what its name implies and that the secretary of labor should be representative of labor, one who understands labor, labor's problems, labor's psychology, collective bargaining, industrial re- lations and one who enjoys the con- fidence of labor.

Has Impressive Record The Agricultural school team has compiled an impressive record this season, losing only one game. Sev- eral of the schools included in the Point tourney have lost a number of games against opposition which Ag school officials consider no stronger than the opposition met by their team. Mr. Christensen par- ticularly objects to the selection of Red Granite in preference to the Aggies, charging that the sole reason for choosing Red Granite was to avoid the pairing of Stev- ens Point against "Nekoosa in fast round. the BELIEVE CERMHK BEY! ment as judge advocate general" and referred to him as a "thief, scoundrel and crook."

Neverman Made Promise P. F. Neverman, secretary of the W. I. A. A., had promised that the Wood County league champion this year would be selected for tournament play, Mr. Christensen declares. That promise was made, he said, after Auburndale, 1932 title winner, had been omitted from tournament selections last spring. Noel Thorpe, principal of the Auburndale high school, took the matter up at that time with Mr. Neverman, objecting strenu- ously to the fact that Wood County league teams have never been giv- selection consideration in the tournament teams. The Agricultural school principal talked with Secretary, Neverman by RECOVERY IS ANTICIPATED, BARRING -FURTHER COMPLI- CATIONS; LUNGS AND HEART SHOW IMPROVEMENT.
