Treasury Head Has Frank Discussion With President on Trip
Executive Silent: (Mass Reveals Threats: Tinkham W ould Probe Davis
WASHINGTON. May 29 <UP>-
William H. Woodin is ready to resign as Secretary of the Treasury if President Roosevelt feels that his usefulness is destroyed by favors rereived from J P. Morgan A* Co. in 1929, it was known today.

While Wooding fate remained in doubt and Senate investigators were prepared for new disclosures when the Morgan inquiry resumes Wednesday. these additional developments were recorded.
Senator Glass, Dem , Va . revealed that he had b°en threatened with | death bv anonymous parties accusing him of defending the Morgan Company.
Senator Couzens. Repn, Mich., pressed toward a showdown on accusations of irregularities in the record of Ferdinand Pecora. Senate Committee counsel in the Morgan inquiry.
Rep. Tinkham. Repn., Mass., announced he would ask a congressional investigation oi Norman ^1 Davi*-American ambassador-at-large in Europe, another buyer of bargain Morgan stocks,
The White House joined with Woodin in denying reports that the Treasury secretary already had submitted his resignation to the President.
"I have not resigned thats all I ran say,” Woodin told newspapermen following his return from the weekend yachting trip with the President.
Indications were that Wooding decision would be determined by developments. A casual inquiry among Senators showed that many believed
