LONDON, June 2-(P)-The house

278 to 228, passed on third reading

expected to revolutionize the Brit-,

sent to, the house of lords..
Under its provisions, voters would
register their first and second pref-

didates were running. If the lead-

be examined and distributed be-

Gasparri, Cardinal, Negotiates
With Italian Government
on Closing of Clubs.
Papal Nuncio Retains His Post;
Recall Was Expected as
Protest on Ban.
ROME, June 2.-()-Secret ne-
gotiations to break the deadlock
between the Holy See and the Ital-
ian state were in progress tonight.
Following the closing of Catholic
youth clubs by the Italian govern-
ment, it was learned from a good
source that conversations are being
conducted by Cardinal Gasparri,
who signed the Lateran treaty and
concordat in 1929,, with Premier
Details Kept Secret.
Cardinal Gasparri spent an hour
today in the office of the papal sec-
retary of state and it is generally
understood (that the aged, retired
statesman is connected with the
handling of the present sitition.
Considerable mystery surrounds
these conversations and the iden-
tity of others taking part in them.
Both the papal and Italian foreign
officer say that they are proceeding,
but no details have been made pub-
Observers point significantly to
the fact that the papal nuncio to
Rome is still at his post. Many
diplomats and even Vatican officials
had expected his recall as a protest
to the duce's banning of the Cath-
olic youth organizations.
The pontiff, instead, is abiding
his Tine but losing no opportunity
to express his disapproval of the
action of the Fascist government.

Permit Y. M. C. A. to Open.
Meanwhile the atmosphere today
was cleared of some of its doubts.
Playgrounds of the Knights of Co-
lumbus. were said to have been
closed under the general order
against the Catholic organizations.
The Y. M. C. A., however, through
a sort of affilation with the Balilla,
an organization for Fascist boys,
was allowed to reopen after half
an hour{ technical closing of one
room. . .
Another doubt removed was that
of some quarters about the finality
of Mussolini's dissolution of the
Catholic youth societies. It was
shown by the foreign office's an-
nouncement that the dissolution
was real, although Mussolini can
rescind the order later, thus en-
abling the clubs to reorganize.
A brief staement is expected
from the premier tomorrow after
a meeting of the Fascist party di-
rectorate of 18 leaders.

ment Urged to
-ibition and B c

NEW ~ORK, June 2.-(/P)---Wil-
liam Randolph Hearst, head of thej
Hearst newspapers, tonight in al
radio address urged the govern-
ment to borrow $$5,000,000,000 to re-
store prosperty and suggested that
it could pay off the debt in five
years by abolishing prohibitibn.
"This is not a time to reduce the
national debt to burdensome taxa-
tion and thereby reduce prosper-
ity," he said. "It is a time to in-
crease the expenditure of the gov-
ernment in public works, in the
employment of labor, and thereby
increase prosperity. .Then out of
prosperity pay off the debt."
Prosperity, he continued, means
increased incomes and values out
of which the government would
"eventually get, even with iod'es
ate taxation," an increase income
to pay off the loan.
"And," he added, "if the govern-
ment deesires further to increase
its income, let it end this folly of
prohibition which does not prohi-
bit and substitute g o v e r n m ent
control of the manufacture and
distribution of alcoholic beverages,
and so secure for itself, on the ba-
sis of the figures of Canada's excise
income, an additional income of a
billion dollars a year.',
"That excise income to the Unit-
ed States government of a billionj
dollars a year would in itself pay
off in five years $5,000,000,000 bor-
rowed and spent to restore prosper-
