Former Demo Representative to Finish Senate Term for New Mexico SANTA FE N Mex May 11 3 of Dennis Chavez former democratic representative to succeed the late Senator Bronson Cutting indepedent republican was announced today at the office of Gov Clyde Tingley Chavez who ran against Cutting in 1934 and al ready had a contest pending for Cuttings seat was given an ap pointment which runs until the 1936 general election Senator Cutting was killed in an air crash near At lanta Mo last Monday When Cuttingdefeated Chavez last fall by a scant disputad 1200 votes Tingley a democrat and run ning mate of Chavez gained the governorship Will Drop Contest In a statement Tingley expressed personal feeling that the pending contest of Chavez now should be dropped This came as a surprise since many political observers had felt that Chavez both would accept the interim appointment and con tinue his contest so that if he won the latter he would be entitled to Cuttings full term until 1940 and a campaign in 1936 would thus be j unnecessary Chavez himself later told news men he would not pursue the pend ing contest but would be a candi date for the remainder of the Cut ting term in the 1936 election Regard for Cutting The tragic death of Senator Cutting for whom I held a high re gard and a genuine personal affec tion Chavez said sealed his lips and makes it impossible for him to speak in defense of his rights Any effort on my part to press the con test further would place me in the attitude of attacking the title of a departed friend I am unwilling to do that If successful in the contest Chavez would have been entitled to serve until December 1940 Fire starting in an oil tank and followed by several explosions swept the Merck and company plant in South Philadelphia causing

DES MOINES May How to make 16000000 do the work of 7 500000 in appropriations was the problem confronting state officials today with the discovery that the fortysixth general assembly failed to provide sufficiently for operation of the state government in the lasl half of 1935 The difference between income and outgo will require dras tic trimming of financial sails be tween July 1 and Dec 31 accord ing to C B Murtagh state comp troller Among other things it will mean that no money will be avail able for capital improvements at the state institutions this year and probably not before April or May of 1936 he added Here is the state financial pic ture for the last six months of this year Two General Forms The legislature appropriated ap proximately 515000000 a year for state purposes in its budget Half of that or is the amount earmarked for the six months end ing Dec 31 1935 To meet its appropriations the state will have two general forms of revenue this year One is the three point tax proceeds of which 000 is allocated for state purposes each year The 6000000 is paid at the rate of a quarter Thus the state will receive 000 from this scouree July 1 and an other Oct 1 The other source is made up of many types of taxation all of them being grouped under the heading of indirect revenue In this group are insurance taxes cigaret tax and the like These yield approximately a years

Long fired a blast against the AAA and he new deal policies in Secretary Wallaces home city Des Moines Crucial Period Ahead The next few weeks will be cru cial said the cabinet member If the ranks of agriculture hold firm we have some chance to improve the agricultural adjustment act and come closer to winning for agricul ture its fair share of the national ncome but if the ranks of agricul ure are divided it is almost a cer ainty that what farmers have jattled for for 15 years will be lost Secretary Wallace declared the farm situation changed when Presi dent Roosevelt came into office Since

farmers had a tariff that actually worked for them Won Right to Adjust Because of surpluses so huge as to overshadow our whole national economy because of the limited amount of food the human stomach can consume because of a shattered foreign market for farm products agriculture in 1933 won the right to adjust its production to the market Jiat actually existed The agricultural adjustment act
