Washington, Dec. 12.—(JP>— A resolution disapproving the whole government regrouping program submitted by President Hoover was offered today in the senate by Senator King, democrat, Utah. King explained he favored many of the moves but was strongly op posed to others. To bring the question to issue he proposed disapproval of the lot. His resolution went over for future consideration. Meanwhile other efforts were be ing started to block reallign-ments suggested by the president on reasoning the change should be left to the incoming democratic administration. If, however, the administration representatives can convince the house expenditures committee, vith its democratic majority that cash would be saved, some changes might be allowed to take effect. Unless congress acts in 60 days ago the proposals become effective. Speaker Garner at bis press conference today said he thought congress either “should put aside all the transfers and eliminations or let them all become effective.” Washington, Dec. 12.—(A*)—The Roosevelt prohibition-farm relief program is to be thrown squarely before congress this week by the democratic leadership but the goal of fulfillment before March 4 adjournment is still clouded in doubt.

She hoped to beat her own record of 4 days, 17 hours and 19 minutes for the flight between England and Cape Town, set November 18. Extra Session Looms While democratic leaders are confident of the votes for measures legalizing beer with its accompanying tax and for farm relief, there is every indication these proposals will clash with the views of president Hoover and vetoes of both are seen as probable. Thus looms the prospective jam on Capitol hill that is likely to force a special session of the new congress early next spring. The recommendations of the Hoover administration for a sales tax and an additional ll percent pay cut for government workers are receiving slight attention. The house today takes up the , first of the annual supply bills, carrying the funds for next year’s expenditures on the treasury and postoffice departments. Economy Faces Test Economy gets its first test in this legislation. The bill has been cut below a billion dollars for the first time in years, but the Hoover pay cut was not included by the committee in reporting the measure out. The senate will dispose of the Philippine independence bill early in the week. Its passage is freely forecast Senator Watson of Indiana, the majority leader, proposed that the measure of Senator Glass, demo-Virginia, providing sweeping reforms in the national banking structure be considered after the Philippines fight. Senate democrats also have placed the Glass bill as the next order of business and it appears destined to get the call. Mr. Hoover’s message also stressed the need of bank ing legislation. A vote on this be fore Christmas seems likely.

Whitney, chairman of the Railway Labor Executives’ Asso ciation, and W. F. Xiii eh off, chairman of the conference committee of the managers, yesterday emphasized the narrow and sharply-defined scope of their respective groups in the coming parloy.

Geneva, Dec. 12.—CP)—The Unit ed States, in a document which the -chief of her airns delegation, Nor man H. Davis, signed yesterday, de dared her resolve to co-operate in the disarmament conference with a view to seeking substantial armament reductions. The United States and four oth er nations, the statement reads, hope "without delay to work out a convention which shall effect a substantial reduction and a limitation of armaments with the provision for future revision with a view to further reduction.” With America in this deterinina tion are Great. Britain, France, Germany and Italy. Will Resume Task Although this is not entirely what Dr. Davis said he hoped for, the head of the American delega tion said he considered that other peoples now felt there was a moral commitment to resume the task of disarmament after the Christmas holiday "in real earnest.” Davis’ ideal was a convention capitalizing disarmament gains a1 ready made and definite disarma ment plans ready to be presented to the world before Christmas. The American said, however, he was satisfied yesterday’s pronounce ment for co operation w as a move toward substantial and immediate reduction and limitation. Germany to Return The biggest step in the agree ment so far, Mr. Davis pointed out, is that Germany has signified her willingness to resume her place In the conference. Germany’s acceptance of the for mula balancing her demand for arms equality with French insistence on security was announced In Berlin yesterday and was interpreted as her desire to return to the discussions from which she withdrew because of the equality problem. Girl Gets County Poet Medford, Wis., Dec. 12.—Miss Gertrude Zenner has been appointed treasurer of Taylor county for the balance of the year to fill out the term of office of her father, John Zenner, who resigned to accept an appointment as director of federal relief for Taylor county. Paris, Dec. 12—(IP—Premier Her* riot, blaming } ll Europe’s debt troubles on the Hoover moratorium of 1931, told the chamber of deputies today that his government proposed to pay with reservations the $20,000,000 debt installment due the United States nexr Thursday. Payment without reservations would be unacceptable and out and out refusal to pay would be "the final imprudence.” The reservations which he will attach to payment he declined to outline before he had an opportunity to explain them, sometime this afternoon, to tile chamber of foreign affairs and finance committees. Proposal as Confidence Vote Before he finished his statement and before the chamber adjourned, he let it be understood that when he is ready to present his detailed proposal to parliament he will make the issue a question of confidence risking a possible adverse vote and the downfall of his ministry “This is my interpretation of the Hoover moratorium,” he said. Herrlot announced after the meeting tlint. France will wait and see what England does before stipulating her own reservations in the payment of the $20,000,000 due the United States on Thursday. Should Have Refused Delay “If the United States did not wra»t to concern itself with the problem of reparations, Mr. Hoover should not have become involved in it. He should have allowed Germany itsef to ask for the moratorium in the Young plan.” The statement came in th© course of an exposition of the history of the debt issue. Criticizes Other Actions The premier criticized other departments of the American foreign policy, beginning with the refusal of congress to approve the League of Nations sponsored by President Wilson. “The United States,” he said, “never took its rightful place at the table in the council of nations. He insisted that America became involved in the reparations problem when it allowed Charles G. Dawes and Owen D. Young to frame the reparations plan which bear their names. London, Dec. 12—</Pi—Stanley Baldwin, acting head of the government in the absence of Premier Minister Mat Donald, announced today that general debate on war debts will be held in the holist- of commons Wednesday. He said no special legi.-lation would be reqired for withdrawal of gold from the Bank of England to cover the debt installment due Thursday. There will be full and free discussion on all phases of the debt, with a comprehensive statement by Neville Chamberlain, he promised. The members bombarded him with questions as to whether the house will be given a chance »o vote on payment or nonpayment of the $95,550,000 due on Thursday, but Mr. Baldwin said no special resolution would be introduced. OOM PAO BOPPING days TO CHRISTMAS Washington, Dec. 12.—<.P)—Secretary Stimson Sunday night replied to the British government s third war debt note that the secretary of the treasury has no authority to accept payments on war debts except as provided in the funding agreement. The reply to Great Britain said the right is reserved to congress for final decision in respect to changes in intergovernmental obli-gations. The note said the executive has no power to amend or alter these agreements. No Declaration of Policy Therefore, the note explained, “it should be understood that acceptance by the secretary of the tress-ury of funds tendered in payment of the December 15 installment cannot constitute approval of oil agreement to any condition or dec* laration of policy inconsistent witti the terras of the agreement.” “The sum so received must bd credited to principal and interest cs provided therein,” it added The reply was drafted by Seer#-tories Stimson and Mills within ai few hours after Sir Ronald Lindsay had handed Stimson the British note saying the December IB installment would be paid in gold, (Continued on Page I)
