fascist prac tices inherent in the NRA Its en forcement by bureaucratic coercion ntimidation and boycott are not American Mr Hoovers statement contin ued If all these things are liberal and progressive we need some new def initions of these terms Some Purposes Bight The purpose of the act so far as it abolishes sweating through min mum wages and hours and so far as it abolishes child labor are right But they should be accomplished by other than fascist methods if hey are to be truly liberal and pro gressive The former president gave out his statement just prior to leaving for Des

FADE Glark Withholds Rider to Navy Bill After Vote in Senate WASHINGTON May 24 Cash bonus forces somewhat dis couraged and disorganized by the size of the senate vote sustaining Presidents veto of the Patman bill counted upon their strong majorities in both houses of congress today for eventual victory The decisive defeat of the Patman biii even by a minority vote took the wind out of the bonus movement temporarily at least Several new proposals were advanced immediate ly but the leaders waited to get their breath before plunging into a new drive Confident predictions were issued by the veterans chieftains fore casting that the bonus would be paid but there was a noticeable droop in enthusiasm among legisla tors over the prospects for achiev ing it at this session of congress

override a veto Several sen ators predicted there would be no bonus legislation this session unless the veterans forces were willing to accept somethinglike the Harrison compromise On the other hand the Patmanite forces pointed out that even ID the face of president Roosevelts unpre cedented personal appearance against the bill it had mustered a majority of 14 votes in the senate and a vote of more than 3 to 1 in the house and contended that such majorities could not be blocked for long Divided Within Camp In view of divided opinions with in the bonus camp over strategy Senator Clark virtually decided not to press for action on his attempt to attach to the pending navy bill a rider calling for cash payment He indicated however that he would offer his plan later in the session it would permit the president to finance the bonus by borrowingby using work relief money or by issuing new money The defeat in the senate left the bonus forces in conflict One group wanted to start all over again with the Vinson bill for full cash pay ment on the theory it could be passed over a presidential veto This bill would leave the method of financing to the government But many of the bonus leaders were as much interested in the monetary issue as the bonus question and wanted to push the Patman bill again Offer as Amendment They could offer it as an amend ment to some vital administration measure such as the NRA exten Tum 1o Page 4 Column 3 Gets KATHERINE BOND Formerlowa Man Offered NEW YORK May 24 su preme court jury today awarded damages to Miss Katherine Leary Bond in
