Tile measure sets up two classes of candidates for the office of delegate, one committed to repeal and the other dry in temper. Fifty-one delegates would be elected, one from each of the state's 34 Congressional districts and 17 at-large. The election would be held in conjunction with the regular November balloting unless tho Governor proclaimed a special election earlier. The convention then w-ould be held within 28 days. Although not strictly an issue between the wet and dry elements, the McClure bill has the sponsorship of anti-prohibitionists.

McClure utilities PROBE RESUMED HARRISBURG, March £-<UP) — Resumption of normal banking activities in Pennsylvania will be considered today by leading bankers of the state and high state officials. Although some bankers expressed the belief that many of the banking institutions of the state would be open on Friday morning after the expiration of the state and national moratoria which expire at midnight Thursday, a high official of the State Department of Banking intimated that the state moratorium would continue for another week "It would be impossible for us to open the banks of the state." a high official of the department said, "before the enactment of regulatory federal legislation. "The first state to open its banks before Congress acts might subject them to a flood of withdrawals which would wreck the bank." Dr. William D. Gordon, State Secretary of Banking, said that, the issuance of clearing house scrip would not take place until after the banks are permitted to re-open. "It will be used by them in place of United States currency, in payment of deposits in the various banks," he said. The banking secretary said that the Philadelphia Clearing House scrip would carry a 5 per cent, interest fee which would aid its early retirement He expressed the opinion that scrip to br issued by the various Clearing House Associations throughout the nation would be accepted at face value by other localities. While Governor Pinchot and Gordon considered the situation, leaders of the House of Representatives prepared to pass the Sordoni banking bill on second reading today. The House was held in session until early today to receive the Senate measure, w'hich makes legal the emergency powers given the Secretary of Banking. Representative Storb, Montgomery, reported the bill out from committer early today and the House approved it on first reading and placed it on the calendar for second reading today. An anti-hoarding bill was introduced in the House by Representative Emhardt, Philadelphia. It makes it a crime to hoard "gold, silver, currency or otlier moneys of the United States" and lists penalties for those who violate the law. Representative Sowers, Philadelphia. offered a bill which would permit the City of Philadelphia to issue scrip on 80 per cent, of its delinquent taxes. While other bills were considered by the House and Senate, the banking situation was the center of interest in both Houses SSS SE BiNKS get order to seeking change MEET ALL I*A YROLLS; SCRIP Ii ELES ISSUED Scarcity of Small Coins and Bills Nom Relieved ii v in ( Entry Boxes Rules to Safety Deposit NKW \ ORK H ANKS Secretary Woodin, Acting Under Presidential Permitted; Other Grim determination was written in every line of his face as President Roosevelt turned from inaugural ceremonies to deal boldly with one of the most staggering problems that ever confronted an American President the country’s financial paralysis, in this photo, taken as Roosevelt bent to the task of setting the nation s life-blood in circulation, the resolute set ol ins jaw matches the boldness of his words and action.
