LEADERS AWAIT FIGURES
Smoot Estimates $500,000,000
Treasury Shortage at End
of Fiscal Year.
WASHINGTON, Mar. 18.-(P)-
Confronted with a Government in-
come outpaced by expenditures,
financial minds today cast about
for a method of shortening the
distance between the two.
The picture was presented clearly.
On March 16, the Treasury had an
actual deficit of $437,515,713. In
addition to this, there was a de-
mand from the Veterans Bureau for
$500,000,000 to meet loans on vet-
erans compensation certificates.
On the other side of the ledger
were lagging income tax receipts.
The first day's collections dropped
$5,000,000 under the first day of a
year ago, despite a one per cent
increase on ndrmal income taxes.
The report for Monday, March 16,
showed $13,100,362 as compared
with $18,148,963 for the last filing
day last year.

This, however, was not consider-
ed by officials as indicative of the
trend the total receipts will fol-
low. Referring to the records forl
the second and third days after the
closing date last year, they pointed
to tomorrow and Friday as the days
which would give a better indica-
tion of the trend.
Chairman Reed Smoot of thes
Senate Finance Committee, whicht
handles revenue legislation for thatt
branch, expressed belief today theP
Treasury deficit would be larger
than present estimates. He esti-
mated it would be at least $500,-
000,000 at the end of the fiscalx
year, June 30.s
He said either a tax increase or a
slice in the amount put aside for
the sinking fund would be neces-
sary. He did not regard a tax in-t
crease favorably at this time.
For the present, however, theV
Treasury was busily occupied with
meeting its immediate pressing de-
mands. No plan has yet been an-a
nounced for raising the additionalu

Woodcock Declares Governmern
Will Stamp Out Commercial
WASHINGTON, Mar. 28. -(P)-
Amos W. W. Woodcock, Federal pro
hibition director, expressed the be
lief today that the governmen-
would be successful in the renewer
campaign to stamp out large com
mercial violators. The campaign
will begin soon with the increase
force provided by Congress.
He voiced his optimism just be-
fore he left today for a tour of in-
spection into Kentucky, Missouri
Kansas, and probably Oklahoma
and Arkansas, which is preparatory
to the new drive to open July 1 with
the 500 additional agents.
Under Woodcock the enforcement
campaign has changed its approach
He began with the premise that it
is impossible and useless for the
Government to bother with small
cases, minor infractions by the in-
dividual citizen. He mapped out a
campaign restricted to elimination
of the large sources of supply.
His reorganizations of the prohi-
bition forces has been on this basis.
For nine months he has been work-
ing. He awaits the test confidently.
Asked today what he thought of
the prospects, he said:
"I think we will be successful
against the commercial violators.
The bureau is improving in efficien-
cy and morals. You can't go into
the homes. You can't go into hip-
