assured despite some protest on the part of republicans that the house was acting merely as a tool of the president Heated Exchange But hopes for final congressional approval this week of the entire program were dimmed by the roar ing senate debate which yesterday included a heated exchange on Pres ident Roosevelts efforts so far to achieve economic recovery Robinson of Arkansas the demo cratic leader spoke out boldly for the administration saying that Mr Roosevelt had led in the accomp lishment of more during the four weeks he has been in office than has ever been accomplished during a comparable period Robinsons speech was provoked by what he termed unfair criti cism of the president by Senators Long D La and Robinson RInd Attacks Economy Bill TheIndiana Robinson attacked i th iill

MuchHope EXPECTS GREAT America Gets BouquetFrom Its Old Critic GEORGE BERNARD SHAW By RAYMOND CKOWLEV NEW YORK April 12 erica long accustomed to hear George Bernard Shaw call it a land of boobs was a uit astonished to day to find a large Shavian bouquet in its lap Lecturing an American audience face to face for the first time the Irish author said last night that the United States may possibly take the lead in saving civilization from tottering into the abyss as did Bflbylon Rome and other civiliza tions of the v A rain of verbal cabbages accom panied the complimentary roses Shaw said that Americans are ruled by financiers who are 95 per cent lunatics that they worship a monstrous idol called the statue of liberty and that they live under a constitution which is nothing but a charter of anarchy I Have Some Hope But he celebrated the passing of the ridiculous 100 per cent Am erican that man who talked so splendidly and had nothing to say and he dwelt on a curious public instinct a social feeling which may turn out to be a volcanic political genius Therefore I have some hope he said I really do entertain a I think I am the only person in the world who entertains it so far After my preaching tonight some of you may begin to entertain it but do begin to think that it is possi ble that America in spite of all the follies of the past in spite of your ridiculous Uncle Jonathan in spite of your ridiculous 100 per cent Am erican 3ou are really coming to the point in which America may take the lead and possibly help to save the world Proposes New Constitution Speaking to an audience that filled the Metropolitan opera house were many bankers who smiled to hear themselves called proposed that the United States scrap Its constitution build a new one on American needs Turn

measures now pending in Washington and the state legis lature were described by the direc tors as unsatisfactory to the dirt farmer Premier Will Visit U S utal to Talk on Trade Pact Copyright 1953 by the Associated Press OTTAWA April 12 people of Canada look to the ap proaching conferences at Washing ton preceding the world economic conference with much hope Premier R B Bennett will visit the United States capital at a date not yet decided upon and it is ex pected in discussion there will in clude the possibility of a trade agreement between Canada and the United States as well as such ques tions as rehabilitating the price of silver and provisions to guard against future gluts in the wheat market Prospects of Pact These latter problems will require the cooperation of several nations to make effective any solution The prime minister in his speech in the house of commons Feb 20 dealt with the prospects of a trade agreement between Canada and the Unitxjd States when he said all parties in the house speaking for the whole of Canada have expressed the desirability of such an agree ment being made if possible In view of the great importance which the government places on the trade agreement with the United States absolute silence has been maintained in min isterial circles as to the proposals which have been made or will be made to Washington Much Can Be Done It is felt here however thai much can be done to revive the im mense trade that once was carried on between the two countries In the fiscal year 1929 Canada bought goods from her southern neighbor to the value of and sold the United States goods to the value of The trade between the two countries has been dimin ishing for several years The prem ium of the United States dollar over the Canadian dollar approximately 20 per cent not only makes much heavier the interest burden Canada has to meet each year In New York but is one of the most Important factors in making it difficult for U S firms to sell gooda in Canada The Canadian producers are pro tected by this premium in addition to the regular tariff and dumping duties which have been levied fre quently against U S products Pays Tariff Charges The Canadian importer has to pay S120 in Canadian funds for each dollars worth of goods in U S funds and haa to pay the tariff charges based on J120 For a time this disparity in x changes helped the Canadian farm ers who could sell certain products across the border the premium in exchange wiping out much of the U S tariff but recently prices of farm products such as butter eggs poultry etc have reached such low levels in the republic that this trade Is cut off Some steps will likely be studied to make the tariffs between the two countries less liable to change due to fluctuations in exchange and the application of dumping or un fair competition duties Kffecllvn Barrier Tariff experts hern have express ed the opinion that while U S tar iffs are in many cases higher than the corresponding Canadian tariffs the frequent use of the dumping MIDWEST GOVERNORS AT MILK PARLEY duties by Canada the right of the minister of national revenue to declare the fair market value of any goods coming in has made the Canadian tariff at least aa effec tive a barrier against the goods from across the line as the relative ly higher U S tariff is against Canadian exports It is expected that many lines of manufactured goods will be sought out on which Canada will see its way clear to lower the tariff against the United States in return for lower tariffs against natural products from Canada Lumber is
