Washington immediate congressional action on drastic proposals to liberalize the bankruptcy Laws and lighten the nations crush Bur Dent of debt was promised today by speaker of the House Garner. The speaker pledged himself to throw his influence behind the la Guardia Mckeown Bill and bring it before the House next week. The exact Date of consideration will depend upon time consumed by the judiciary committee in approving a final draft. This legislation would enable individuals and corporations to obtain a postponement and in some cases a scaling Down of debts. Technically the measure is a liberalization of the Federal bankruptcy procedure. Actually it contemplates revolutionary revision to bring Relief from the top heavy burdens of debts which were contracted when prices were High and dollars cheap and which Many Connot pay now that dollars Are dear.

The debt which rep i resented bushels has he come a debt of 4,000 bushels j the creditor at the same time i has gained providing he can j collect. Money which he loaned j in Boom times will now buy him j much More in goods and serv i j ices. I sponsors of the legislation j maintain creditors can thus take j a loss in dollars without Nus j Taining an actual loss in values. To Ald individuals the measure proposes a tremendous reorganization of Industrial finance and a real moratorium for individuals caught beneath mounting debts. The proposed Bill to be presented to the House judiciary committee for action Friday is divided into three sections. One deals with individuals and Small businesses the second with larger corporations the third with railroads. The average citizen struggling with salary reductions or no salary at All would obtain the debt Relief by application to a Federal court. Seale Down payments he would propose a general scaling Down of payments a postponement or perhaps both. If creditors holding a majority of his obligations agreed and the court approved he would then Quot proceed on a reduced basis paying what he could. The theory of the Bill is that it is better for everybody including creditors to save something when. A debtor is hard pressed rather than have him go into bankruptcy and lose everything.
