Feeling of House Toward Muscle
Shoals Action Indicates
Quick Legislation.
Reece, Author of Opposing Bill,
Will Prepare Compromise
Measure for House.
(B Asscaed Press)
WASHINGTON, Nov. 21.-A mid-
dle ground through the Muscle
Shoals controversy was envisioned
today by administration leaders in
the House as a course which might
lead them away from special ses-
sion pitfalls.
Caught in conference last ses-
sion between the Senate and the
House, Muscle Shoals' legislation is
regarded as the key log in the jam
of controversial proposals clogging
both branches. With its removal,
administration leaders believe the
way would be cleared for action
on major matters and a special
session of the new Congress avert-
Compromise Indicated.
The first indication of a compro-
mise with Senator Norris, of Ne-
braska on his government opera-
tion measure approved last spring
by the, Senate, came today from
Chairman Snell, of the House rules
committee, who heretofore has re-
sisted such legislation.
Although making it clear he was
opposed to the policy of govern-
ment operation of power projects,
he said if a majority of Congress
wanted it, he would not oppose the
operation of Muscle Shoals as a
government experiment.
Reece Studies Bill.I
In a d d i t i o n, Rrepresentative
Reece, of Tennesee, Republican
conferee who Spisored theadrhin-

Muscle Shoals to private interests,
began a study of the bill approved
by the house with a view to making
certain concessions.iee plans to
submit his proposals to the con-
ferees early next week when they
are called by Senator McNary, of
Oregon, the chairman.
Representative Michener, Repub-
lican, Michigan, a member of the
rules commitee, predicted a com-
promise measure would be enacted
before the end of the short session.
He also has opposed government
The Michigan member said the
importance of Muscle Shoals had
been "over emphasized."
Prominent Ford Men Trapped in
Burning Ship.
(H.v ass4 e cd/Press)
DETROIT, Nov. 24.-Myron E.
Zeller and Carl Wenzel, two of the
most prominent men in the Ford
Motor aircraft d i v i s i o n were
burned to death at 11 a. m. today
when their tri-motored experimen-
tal plane crashed in flames at the
Ford airport.
With Zeller at the controls and
Wenzel acting as mechanic, the
two men had spent nearly a hour
in a test flight over the airport. A
rush of smoke was seen to come
from the center motor. Zeller, ap-
parently seeing tie danger, headed
back to the airport, passing over

the home of Henry Ford and land-
ing near the center of the field. As
the plane landed it nosed over and
was enveloped in flames from burn-
ing oil and gasoline.
The two men were trapped in
the cabin. Firemen from the han-
gar were unable to rescue them be-
cause of the white hot condition
of the metal plane. Witnesses said
the rescuers finally got near
enough to remove Wenzel's body
but that Zeller was burned with
the wreckage of the plane.

WASHINGTON, Nov. 24.-A con-
trove- sy rooted in ancient Spanish
law was settled by the Supreme
Court today with a consequent loss
to the government of more than
$100,00,00 in taxes.
The highest tribunal ruled that
income from community property
in Arizona, Louisiana, Texas and
Washington may be reported for
federal taxation by the husband
and wife separately.It was a sweep-
ing defeat of the government,
which had contended such income
must be reported in a single return
by the husband alone.
It had pointed out that with the
tax rate increasing in proportion
to the extent of income its revenue
would be much greater under the
single return.
If they had won, government at-
torneys said, the treasury would be
more than $100,000,000 r i c h e r
through the collection of back tax-
es, filed in previous years by hus-
band and wife separately.
The court ruled in an opinion by
Justice Roberts, his first since his
appointment to the bench, that in
community property states whose
laws give the wife a vested interest
in the income from this source, she

Hint at Wartime Use of
Large Commercial Planes.
(By Associated Press)
GENEVA, Nov. 24.-A discussion
of t he war time potentialities of
peace time commercial aircraft,
with pointed reference by France
to German prowess in the air, dis-
turbed the calm-of-the:preparatory-
disarmament commission today.
The discussion arose over a pro-
posal to insert in the draft con-
vention a provision for an annual
report by the contracting govern-
ments on the number of commer-
cial planes and dirigibles in their
territory. The proposal finally was'
adopted without a negative vote,

said, for its contention and that
where the property was under the
husband's control he must file one
return for the total income.
He referredto a former decision
in which the community tax law of
California was construed to permit
the government to impose a tax on
the total income reported only by
the husband.
Such a conclusion was necessary
in that state, the justice explained,
because in California the wife's in-
terest in community property is
merely expectant and not vested.
The community property laws,
prevalent over much of the south-
west, were derived from old Span-
ish statutes once in force there.
