eastern democrats who did not go along in the deal against the president were heard to say privately they thought he went too far Neutrality Plan The scars that were left may for instance prejudice Mr Roose velts chances of getting neutrality through the he ever had any Among those sufficiently of fended to take issue politically with the presidents statement was Chairman Silver Key Pitt man of senate foreign relations whohas been handling Mr Roose velts neutrality interests The day after Mr Roosevelt spoke the Pittman committee put off action on neutrality for another week The opposition leader Senator Borah lingered behind for a con fetence with Pitiman Newsmen noted that Borah came out all smiles The Idahoan did not suggest how Pittman felt in fact did not mention any names but pleasantly announced that Mr Roosevelts vehemence made some votes for the opposi tion on neutrality Voted on Separately Please t scratch Senator Carter Glass name from the lost of those senators who apparently fostered cooperation between the silver ites and money moderates as published in this spot June 28 Glass voted against increasing the silver price The mistake was due to erro neous deductions drawn by this correspondent in the press gal lery from a statement Glass made on the floor He said he was against Increasing silver but would vote for it if it were coupled with the devaluation proposition because it would be a cheap enough price to pay for getting rid of the presidents power to degrade the currency As it worked out later the propo sitions were voted on separately so he did not have to pay the price ICopriiBt Klnl Futures Ine Opinions Vary on Matanuska Project SEATTLE opin ions on the Matanuska Valley col onization project were expressed by delegates

consider Friday is one the people in my district have been asking me for during my four years as commis sioner Program Was Approved This program was approved early this year by the commission and by

first house hurdle to enactment ot relief and monetary legislation by midnight Friday but the republi can leader of the senate openly declared the monetary bill would be talked to death in that cham ber The house approved with lit tle debate the compromise confer ence report on the 81755600000 relief bill and turned to work on the monetary bill But in the senate the specter grew of extended discussion which would delay action on either bill until after the midnight deadline when monetary powers expire and relief funds are exhausted Adopt Dillatory Tactics The administration had suffi cient house votes for approval of the monetary conference report But house republicans adopted dillatory tactics apparently on the principle that every hour of delay in the house would narrow the time margin in the senate When the report was offered in the house Representative Karl E Mundt RS Dak demanded a quorum call Virtually every re publican had left the chamber and Mundts maneuver meant tedioi delay while rounded up likely until around 4 p m ClaimLcgilimate Debate President Roosevelt press blast agairtkl wouldbe senate filibusters as serting that in his opinion the country would react against any effort to kill the monetary bill This brought the rejoinder from Acting Republican Senate Leader Warren Austin of Vermont that legitimate debate would pre vent action on the monetary bill before the deadline Austin spoke after checking the stand of the senate republicans staunch foes of reenactment oE President Roosevelts dollar de valuation powers The senate stripped Mr Roosevelt of this authority but the conference re port put it back in the bill along with a revived foreign silver buy ing program a 70cent an ounce price for domestic silver and the noncontroversial 52000000000 stabilization fund Would Dispose of Relief I am under the impression that we will be here until midnight Austin said You can judge from the character of the debate wheth er it is a filibuster You will be able to see that it is not a filibus ter but legitimate debate Austin said he hoped legiti mate debate of the money bill would net stymie the relief con ference report This gave rise to possibility that the relief fund would be approved by the senate and sent to the white house Aus tin said he hoped the relief bill could be disposed of before the debate on Die monetary ity started Compromises Are Reached Compromise agreements on both bills were reached by senate and house conferees Thursday night They went to the house first Friday for final action The presidents statement ap peared to be an obvious effort to throw the full weight of while house influence against a fili buster in an effort to obtain passage of the two measures The president said he doubled that the people as a whole would be inclined to support the fili buster just because it was a fili buster That he observed was putting it mildly Bills Status Given Status of the situation as Mr Roosevelt spoke was as follows 1 Monetary Legislation Ad ministration won sweeping victory in conference report restoring dol lar devaluation power reviving foreign silver purchases and set ting domestic silver buying price at 70 cents an ounce House pre pared to approve report Senate action in question because of fili buster possibility 2 Relief Bill Conferees agreed to 51755600000 relief
