Where The Roosevelts Will Worship In Washington

(Associated Press Staff Writer)
LANSING, Jan. 26.-Direct stat
appropriations for local welfare ma
be avoided, Gov. William A. Com
stock said today. Ile has two welfar
measures ready for introduction in
the legislature and said subsequen
bills carrying appropriations "prob
ably will not be necessary."
The governor believes Reconstruc-
tion Finance Corporation loans, plu
a proposed $8,000,000 federal advance
for a "work relief" highway program
would tide most communities over
The bills he planned to offer, pre-
pared by a special advisory commit-
tee, were confined largely to legaliz-
ing steps already taken.
One would set up an emergency
state welfare commission, similar to
a committee now operating. The
commission would supervise R. F. C
and other welfare funds advanced for
local aid, county commissions to co-
operate with the state body also
would be established.
Tax Plan Nears Completion
Another bill would legalize con-
tracts between the state and local
units pledging delinquent taxes or
highway funds for R. F. C. loans,
many of which already have been ex-
The governor announced that his
combination sales and gross income
tax measure is nearing completion.
He lhoped to have it ready for sub-
mission to the legislature soon.
The governor's advisory committee
on the tax bill was in Lansing going
over the details of the measure. While
the proposed rates were not revealed
it was understood the sales levy
would reach almost every type of di-
rect sales, such as merchandise, au-
tomobiles, newspaper advertising and
so forth, while the gross income pro-
vision would assess "service sales"
such as those offered by professional
men and utility corporations.
Push Tax Relief
The legislature, awaiting the ad-
ministration bills, pushed tax relief
proposals Wednesday. The Senate
finance committee reported, with a
recommendation that it pass, a bill
to suspend all delinquent tax sales
for one year.
This was in line with a recommen-
dation by the governor. The same
committee announced it is prepared
to report at once a bill already ap-
proved by the house repealing more
than $9,000,000 of appropriations for
institutional buildings and improve-
A Democratic newcomer to the leg-
islature sought in a house resolution
to drive from state employ married
men or women whose wives or hus-
bands are working.
Representative H. O. Klines of Lud-
ington sponsored the measure. It
proposed that within 30 days all state
departmental heads must dismiss all
employees who are members of fam-
ilies in which two adults are gain-
fully employed. The resolution went
to committee.
Opposes Charter Changes
Representative Ate Dykstra, Re-
publican, Grand Rapids, introduced
a resolution censoring municipal of-
ficers who would evade the $15 tax
limitation through charter amend-
It declared the will of the people
as expressed last November was for
reduced taxes. To evade the new con-
stitutional amendment would be to
violate the will of the people and
further demoralize the credit of the
state and its units, the Dykstra reso-
lution said. It asked the members of
the legislature to go on record as
favoring reductions in expenditures
so taxes may be held within the limit.
The resolution went to committee.
A brush between Republicans and
Democrats in the. house ended in a
victory for latter. Republican ex
service men in the legislature spon-
sored a resolution censuring state of-

ficials for discharging war veterans.
The measure was aimed principally
at Samuel T. Metzger, Democratic
agricultural commissioner. A roll call
was demanded on a motion for im-
mediate passage by Rep. James Wil-
son, Republican, Kalamazoo. The
Democrats defeated the motion 52
to 42 and the measurewent to com-
mittee, where it probably will die.

The details which will be attended

"The debt question," Professor Re-
mer continued, "should not neces-
sarily be solved in detail before the
conference opens, but it should be
close enough to settlement so that
everyone will agree that reparations
were finally killed at Lausanne. I

the game which they started at the'
time of the Hoover moratorium. Mor-

Asked for his opinion on the stand-
point that "France has not defaulted,
but only deferred payment," Profes-
sor Remer commented : "If Herriot
is made France's chief representa-
tive at the conference, it will give a
point to the position that America
easily may take, that France merely
delayed settlement. Herriot himself
takes that stand. He is the right'
man to pick, since he fought for pay-
ment all the time he was in office.
"Persons who are in favor of settle-
ment," the economist concluded, "are
inclined to say that it will cure the
depression. No prediction of that
sort can justly be made. Payment
will be only one step toward less
restricted international trade, and;
that will help relieve the world's fi-
nancial situation.
"At any rate, I believe that the
war debt situation, as it now stands,,
is hopeful. There is definite proba-
bility that it may soon be settled to;
the mutual satisfaction of all.

fingers at each other today in the,
aftermath of the bloodiest clash in
Saxony's recent history-a battle in
which nine Communists died and 11
were wounded.
Fifteen hundred people gathered'
Wednesday 'night in a forbidden
meeting in Dresden. A speaker began
"abusing" Adolf Hitler's Nazis, the
police report said, whereuponthe
police crashed into the crowd in a,
flying wedge. Thehaudience,ethe re-
port said, started hurling beer mugs
and chairs at the officers and some
one in a gallery fired a shot. Then
the police opened fire.
The Communists gave a different
version. The Communist newspaper
Arbeiter- Stimme said the meeting
was proceeding quietly until a
speaker assailed the Nazis and then
the police fired "without warning."

Woodburn Chase, who came to the
University of Illinois from North

Ellsworth Brown.
His resignation will take effect at
the end of the academic year.
In a statement issued Monday,
President Chase said "I need not say

I have decided to leave the univer-
sity. The chancellorship of New
York University seems to me to pre-
sent a distinctive and challenging
opportunity, and I have felt that I
should accept it."

Early 1932 Loans Are
Made Public By R. F. C.
WASHINGTON, Jan. 26-(P)-The
House of Representatives and the
country were told in detail today-
despite strenuous objections from
Reconstruction corporation mem-
hers-just how that huge federal re-
lief agency pledged. $1,195,000,000 in
five months to help business tryto
get on an even keel.
In compliance with a special res-
olution adopted by the House, thle
corporation sent to Speaker Garner
a statement showing each loan au-
thorized by the R. F. C. between the
date of its creation on Feb. 2, 1932,
and July 21, 1932.
Following the policy he insisted
upon last spring, Garner made the
report public. Pressure had been ex-
erted to have the report given only
to members of congress, on the
ground that publication would be
harmful to the borrowers.

GENEVA, Jan. 26. - UP) - The
League of Nations council authorized
a message to the Peruvian govern-7
ment today declaring it was Peru's
duty not to hinder Columbian au-
thorities in the exercise of "full sov-
ereignty and jurisdiction recognized
by treaty to belong to Colombia."
The message asked Lima authori-
ties to direct Peruvian military com-
manders to this effect and to take
no action beyond the defense of Pe-
ruvian territory. The council sent
another message to Colombia, in-
forming that government of the
above action.
WASHINGTON, Jan. 26-(RP)--The
United States has asked Peru to
settle its controversy with Colombia
over the town of Leticia in a peaceful
way and not resort to warfare. Sec-
retary Stimson addressed a note to
the Peruvian foreign minister call-
ing upon that nation to respect its
obligations under the Briand-Kel-
logg peace pact.
This note was ,sent Wednesday
night even as a flotilla of Colom-
bian gunboats sailed up the Amazon
toward Leticia, where Peruvian
troops were stationed to protect Pe-
ruvian nationals who seized the town
from Colombian authorities in Sep-
Colombia was given the town by
treaty in 1922 and has refused all
concilliation efforts pending its re-
turn on the ground the question is
an internal one.
