over by the treas ury from the federal reserve system under the proposed program The president recommended that from this profit a two billion dollar fund be set up in the treasury for the purchase and sale of gold in the foreign exchange and the purchase of government securities In other words he would create a stabiliza tion fund The presidential message also rec ognized silver as a basic medium of exchange and urged a greatly in creased use of this commodity by all governments Held as Reserve Under the Roosevelt program the nations supply of gold hereafter would be held in the treasury as a reserve and basis for the countrys currency Ultimately he looks for perman entHtanillzatiott of the dollar in re atlon to the British pound andthe French franc Meanwhile he will be working toward a definite and per manent devaluation of the dollar In the talk with newspapermen he president restatedthat the ob ective of his monetary program was o bringthe purchasing power of he dollar back to the level at which he averabe debts of the country ivere incurred so that these debts nay be paid off with a dollar equal n value to that at which the debt vaa incurred Cut Gold Content The method he is trying is to cut he theoretical gold content the dollar This can only be done if the Teasury has all the gold Therefore if the gold content of he dollar is but by 50 per cent the held my the treasury will be worth twice as much in dollars It was made plain at the white iouse that this profit does not rep esent a base of currency Mr Roosevelt alao made it clear hat the program did not mean a esort to greenback currency and aid that the object of authority to uy government securities out of he stabilization fund wns simply to afeguard the price of these securi ies against any ulterior deprecia ion move by the private holders of he securities The president believes that the old buying policy of the govern ment which he said has resulted in uge purchases is largely respon ible for the recovery in commodity rices following the drop of last eptember and October Permit Foreign Sales Another result of the program e feels has been to permit foreign ales of American eport surpluses uch as cotton and copper Mr Roosevelt told congress he elt that he had the authority to ake title to the gold supply of the nation but this Is a step of such mportonce that I prefer to ask the ongress by specific enactment to in the United States govern ment title to all supplies of Amer canowned monetary gold with pro islon for the payment therefor in jold certificates These gold certificates will be he said as now secured at all imcs dollar for dollar by gold in he for each dollar 3f such weight and fineness as may be established from time to time Sheppard Has Not Dropped His Battle of 18th Amendment WASHINGTON Jan 15 The battle of the eighteenth amend ment Is not yet over for its author Senator Morris Sheppard soft poken Texan Tomorrow the amendments an ilversnry he expect1 to make a peech In the senate urging Its re nactment continuing a record of speech each year on that date I will show how empty the iromiscs of the wet propagandists re Sheppard said toduy PROPERTY LEVY LIMIT IS ERASED Continuec From Page 1 point interim committee bill and the classified transactions tax measure Remove Property Tax Cunningham pointed out that his bill would take all tax off real and personal property being a 100 per cent replacement proposal would raise an amount equivalent to the present property and personal taxes would eliminate assessors provide the same rste for everyone create a state tax board of five members without authority to raise or lower the 1 per cent rate as needed We are all in favor of tax re vision Cunningham said theonly question is how much do we want to replace 25 50 or 100 per cent The allocation to each county would be based on the average col lected annually in the past 10 years and would not exceed that sum The bill puts a ceiling on spending If you take onehalf or onefourth of he tax off realty you benefit the arge property owners and penalize the smaller fellow If you leave on a part of the property tax then the cost of col ection goes up Pays Same Levy Cunningham pointed out that the farm which nets pays the same realty tax as it did when he had a income As long as you leave on a por tion of the present tax you have the same inequality as at present he said adding Is that fair This bill treats everyone fair he said The working man of Iowa does not want any advantage over lis fellowroen The graduated net income tax Is unfair providing one rate for one class and another for another If this is a good principle why not apply it to the gasoline tax This bill eliminates any inequali ties in assessed values by eliminat ing assessors and prohibits any dif ference in the value of a dollar which is not done under the gradu ated system Cunningham estimated that 5n ypars of good business the bill would raise upwards of

Airmail Job to Prevent Talk on Contracts PASADENA Cal Jan 15 More than three years ago Herbert Hoover Jr son of the former presi dent anticipated the likelihood of an attack upon the circumstances of

committee investigating the award of mall contracts and it showed he had offered to resign his position to prevent talk Hoovers name had been brought into the inquiry because of his em ployment as

Observer Claims Stabilized Elevation Is Important CLINTON Jan that water life will be promoted rather than impaired by the 9foot channel project in the Missouri river is contained in a statement issued today by Charles P Chase local ob server for the governments biologi cal survey This follows on the vig orous denunciation of the project in congress this week by Representa tives Fred Biermann of the fourth district and A C Willford of tlie third district Our studies said Mr Chase show conclusively that the stabi lized water elevationswhich will be created by the proposed 9 foot chan nel will be the salavation sought With respect to what the final out come will be there is the grossest expressed ignorance among those public men who wish to strangle the 9foot channel project It Is not a 9 foot stage as shown by the recording gages on bridge piers but nine feet from the bottom up which is generally a six foot stage Mr Chase contined Roller dams do not obstruct a free flow arc open at the bottom allow free passage of fish are raised to pass floods are regulated to maintain a uniform stage will not unduly flood large areas and wiU not hold baclc silt or sewage In only about 20 per cent of the area will the main shoreline be moved back and that will be bene ficial The statement contained a tech nical discussion by Mr Chase of the beneficial effect predictable for both fish and fowl RAW WOOL Inflation Uncreated Demand FVko Inctan 100 PI6CE GOODS Scaroty Demand fncreajsd Labor Coiij Raducior in PJant to 2 Shifli friet to LABOR ShoflsrHoiifiaJ from to 40 Noun Sharler Houri
