Advocates of Monetary Inflation to Aid the Farmer, Crushed
WASHINGTON. April 18 A soft-, spoken word from the White House yesterday crushed in defeat Senate advocates of monetary inflation as a means of aiding the farmer.
Their proposal to add remonetization of silver to President Roosevelt's ' far-reaching Agricultural Relief Bill was defeated, 43 to 33.

The President’s opposition to making currency inflation part of the farm program was considered by many Senators the decisive factor in defeating the silver amendment. Opponents were amazed by the strength shown for ii and said several who favored inflation voted against it only because Roosevelt did not want it added to the Agriculture bill.

HARRISBURG. April 18 (INS)
| A declaration that his four Public Service commissioners must be con-; firmed to assure the people of Pennsylvania justifiable utility rates was | left with the Senate today by Gov. Gifford Pinchot, avowed foe of utility I concerns.
In a belated address of his favorite I subject, the governor reiterated his ! demand for the immediate return of the nomination of Dr. Clyde L. King, commission chairman. An ad-i ministration utility bill, different in many respects from that sponsored I by Senator John J. McClure, Dela-j ware county, was to be introduced I today.
The extent of the governor’s break with Dr. King, former political ally and close friend, was significantly shown in the request for immediate confirmation of commissioners P. S Stahlnecker, C. J. Goodnough, George W. Woodruff and Frederick P. Gruen-bcrg.
“I speak the mind of the people when I say that the political plot which is represented by this delay is wholly disreputable and without excuse,” the executive asserted.
As for Dr. King, whose "change of front has made him unfit for his present post,” tile governor insisted upon a return of the nomination “in order that I may substitute for it the nomination of a man of whose devotion to the public interest than' can be no question." He criticized (he Senate for not extending the courtesy of a reply to his first request.
On the heels of Gifford Pinchot’s demand, Senator Benjamin II Thompson. Westmoreland, today introduced the administration's utility bill.
The bill, Intended to supplant the McClure omnibus utility measure awaiting final action in tilt' House, wra.s referred to (he Judiciary general: committee. It provides for strict reg- j I ulations which Governor Pinchot j I claims is necessary to prevent a condition in Pennsylvania similar to the ! "Instill collapse."
! Introduction of the bill sounded the keynote for what us expected to be another fight, between the governor 1 and the Republican state organization
“Unless we have regulations that really regulate, the people will rise and demand public ownership of utilities,” the governor predicted.
Governor Pinchot also declared "the investigation and disclose of relations between utilities and members of the Public Service Commission must be carried through to a finish."
LEAD TO ARREST
The day before yesterday, a man. who gave has name as James Roche to Media Pollee Captain Frank Chandler, and the State Police, was found wandering about the estate of Charles Hart, on Creek road, near Media. On his head he wore a burlap bag. His stockings were rolled up on the outside rtf his trousers legs and. despite the fact that it was broad daylight, he was carrying a lighted red lantern. He was permitted to i pend the night in the Hart garage, but yesterday morning when the chauffeur went to get one of the cars, i the stranger, it was found, discon- I nee ted all wires, in the ear. Having hastily and forcibly evicted him from the building, the Hart chauffeur looked up a minute later to see the man start oil in another family car, s' ll holding aloft his red lighted lantern.
James Roche’s search for one good citizen, honest and true, ended yesterday in the Media lockup, where he is being held pending an insanity examination.

WASHINGTON, April 18 (UP) — ; The administration has submitted to Congress a specific plan for a national board of regulate industrial I production.
Secretary of Labor Perkins on belial! of President Roosevelt, has laid i the proposal before the House Labor Committee as an amendment to the pending 30-hour week bill, the United Press learned.
The administration thus proposes ! to broaden the measure into a rovo-j lutionary venture in national eco-; nomlc planning and social reconstruction spreading out employment through the shorter work week ' to open up jobs for millions of the 13,OOO,OOO or more now Idle, and then attempting to stabilize that I employment and earning power by j controlling production.
The goal is to keep factories and mines operating ut an even pace with j output closely adjusted to market demands. Instead of overproducing for a period, glutting the market with a surplus that forces prices j down, and then having to lay off workers.
Instead of the flat six-hour day, j five-day week limitation set in the Black bill parsed by the Senate, Miss Perkins would set. a maximum of 40 hours a week and emjxjwer a board to make flexible adjustments below that figure as the needs ol various industries demanded.
Similarly, no specific minimum wage should be fixed, but a board would attempt to maintain wages at a Just scale and settle controversies,
