Wisconsin Weakens in Two
gates for President
at Convention


Milwaukee, April 4.-(By A. P.)- +
Hope of President Calvin Coolidge to
obtain at least two Wisconsin dele-
gates pledged to him at the Republi-
can national convention at Cleveland
appeared shattered today by the Vic-
tory of Congressman H. A. Cooper,
La Follette delegate in the first dis-
trict, who defeated the Coolidge dele-
gate J. F. Craig as shown by complete
official returns.
The sole Coolidge Wisconsin dele-
gate as shown by official return is
Thomas Scott, first district, who poll-
ed the second largest vote. The vote;
between Craig and Cooper was close,
less than 600 votes separting the two,
and there still remains the possibility
of a contest. J. B. Cristoph, the other
La Follette district delegate, ran ap-
proximately 2,000 votes behind.Craig.'
In the remainder of the :state, late
official returns failed to change the
previously reported showing of com-
plete victory for LaFollette delegates
and the comfortable leads of delegates
at large pledged to support Gov. Al
Smith at the ;Democratic national con-
vention over the delegates supporting
W. G. McAdoo.

gation as a rendevouz in recent years
of high governmental officials.
Faced with the mass of material the
committee, already deeply occupied
with executive sessions, inquiry into
war contract questions, decided upon
no recess until Monday.
"The investigation is directing us,
rather than we directing it," Chair-
man Brookhart remarked. During,
the interlude In the examination of wit-
nesses, the committee decided to send
two of its members, Senator Wheeler,
Democrat, its prosecutor, and Senator!

While the senate finance committee,
warned of a $75,000,000 deficit as a re-
sult of the reductions now being car-
ried by the revenue bill, turned to
means of raising new revenue, Presi-
dent Coolidge today announced a gen-
eral policy of opposition to any new
taxes. -
Mr. Coolidge, while not 'expressingJ
any specific attitude of the new taxes,
voted last night by the committee on
radio and mah jongg setS, indicated
he would approve new levies only if
designed to shift the tax burden from
a class or interest now heavily taxed
to a class or interest which might
without injury bear additional taxa-
Before taking up the remaining ex-
cise, and miscelaneous tax rates in
the bill, Chairman Smoot called the
attention of the committee today to es-
timates which he said showed the bill
as now framed would fail by about
