WASHINGTON, Jan. 8 --(P)- A
new and still untried Congress dug
quickly into a mass of organization
detail today preliminary to its big'
job of translating President Roose-
velt's work relief program into law
and voting enough cash to pay the
bill.
The Senate was in recess until
Thursday to give important com-
mittees time to start funtioning.
Immediately, the banking group be-
gan consideration of Senator Van-
denberg's bill to empower the Fed-
eral Deposit Insurance Corp. to reg-
ulate interest rates and thereby re-
move grounds of the corporation's
recent clash with Senator Carter
Glass (Dem.), Virginia.
Writing new membership slates
for its standing committees topped
the House program. Democrats on
ibo Ways and Means Committee
who assign their colleagues to com-
mittee posts sought places for the

F.D.R. Jr. Pays His Traffic Fine With A Smile

Few Take Part
In Preliminary
SaarBalloting
Unexpectedly Light Vote
By Civil Servants Due To
Fear Of Reprisals
SAARBRUECKEN, Saar Basin Ter-
ritory, Jan. 8 -(P)- A much lighter
vote than had been anticipated was
apparent today as public employes
expressed their conviction as to
whether the Saar should join Nazi
Germany, remain under Geneva, or
unite with France.
Fear of reprisals after the future
of the Saar is determined in Sunday's
plebescite kept hundreds of civil
servants from the polls in a two-day
preliminary vote. Since most of the
10,000 employes will be at work Sun-
day, they were allowed to vote early.
Many failed to exercise their fran-
chise, it was disclosed, afraid of pun-
ishment later either by Nazis or those
opposed to a reunion with the reich.
Another factor which cut down
the balloting sharply was the dis-
qualification of many Nazis for shout-
ing "heil Hitler" at the voting places.
Such demonstrations had been strict-
ly forbidden.
In one precinct as high as 20 per
cent of the votes were thrown out.
Street car workers, who were given
the privilege of voting Monday or to-
day, refrained from doing so for fear
the ballots would be tampered with.
They will vote Sunday.
Ballot boxes were kept under heavy
guard. Armored cars will bring them
into Satarbruecken tonight, where
they will be closely watched until
next Monday. Then they will be
mixed and counted with Sunday's
vote.
Since a majority of the public serv-
ants are Nazis, it was assumed the
preliminary vote favored a return to.
Germany.
The Saar governing commission,
making every effort to keep down vio-
lence, has banned public and private
political assemblies until after the
plebiscite.
Yggdrasill, according to Webster,
was the tree which in Norse mythol-
ogy supported the universe.

Appropriations Coming Up
The real work ahead was Mr.
Roosevelt's plan for supplanting the
dle with work relief and spending
$4,000000,000 to do it in the next fis-
cal year.,First, however, the House Ap-
propriations Committee p 1 a n n e d
t rings on the President's request
feo a reappropriation of $880,000,-,
000 to carry direct relief in the next
six months.
Wednesday Rep. James P. Buchan-
an (Dem., Texas), chairman of
the Appropriations Committee, ex-
pects to report to the House the
$750.00,000 annuli supply bill for
the Government's independent of-
fices.
Congress May Direct Work
There was still talk today, among
some Democrats as well as Republi-
cans, that Congress should choose
the specific projects on which the
money will be spent instead of giv-
ing it to the President in a lump
sum to allot as he sees fit.
There also were expression of be-
lief from western Progressives that
$4,000,000,000 will not be enough
and that "wages prevailing in in-
dustry" should be paid to relief
workers instead of the President's
plan to pay less.
But many Democrats expressed
approval of the plan and with that
party's majorities so huge, even the
bitterest opponents of the lump sum
idea agreed privately that 'it would
go through without major change.
Club House Of
S.C.A. Rapidly
Being Finished
Building For Utilization By
Student Groups To Be
Ready Soon
A club house, which will be avail-
able during the winter months of the
University term for the use of or-
ganized student groups, is rapidly
nearing completion on the grounds of
the S.C.A. Fresh Air Camp near Pat-
terson Lake.
The structure wiu oecome a part of
the permanent equipment of the
Fresh Air Camp and contain dining,
housing, and heating facilities. Prof.
Ferdinand N. Menefee of the mechan-
ical engineering department is chair-
man of the committee financing the
project and has been working jointly
with the FERA.
Max A. Musch, Howell, and Prof.
George M. McConkey of the Architec-
ture college designed- the two-story
structure which will serve as the cen-
tral building for the Fresh Air Camp.
The Fresh Air Camp was first or-
ganized in '1921 and two years later
was established at its present location
near Patterson Lake, which is about
25 miles southwest of Ann Arbor near
the University Reserve. The land for
the camp was donated by H. B.
Earhart and Marvin Ives.
Tents were first used by the camp-
ers, until in 1926 10 lodges for 120
boys and a smaller director's build-
ing were constructed. These compose
the present physical plant.
In addition to the dining and heat-
ing facilities the clubhouse will con-
tain a stage, kitchen, storeroom, and
offices for the director and staff men
of the camp. It is also planned that
the building will contain a large coun-
cil ring.
All student organizations or special
gioums will h ah1 tn vail themselves

By ARTHUR M. TAUBj
FORT MEADE, Fla., Jan. 8 -(Spe-
cial)-Florida is beginning to lift up
its head to take stock of the damage
that was done by its latest catastro-
phe - this time a mid-season frost
;that swept through the state leaving+
in its wake an ugly scar of ruined
fruit groves and a shocked popula-
tion.
Conservative estimates of the dam-
age show that 80 per cent of the
tangerines are destroyed, 60 per cent
of the oranges, and 40 per cent of the
grapefruit. The disastrous effects
of the frost, which occurred on two
nights in the middle of last month
when the mercury went down to 20
degrees, could not be determined at
the time, but now, with the trees that
were touched withered and defoliated,:
and the fruit itself showing signs of
fermentation, even the most optimis-
tic cracker is beginning to lose his
optimism.
About half of the packing houses
in the citrus belt have already shut
down, and a' great many of those
left open see little likelihood of con-
tinuous operation during the season.
Packing house officials throw up their
hands when asked if they will con-
tinue in business the rest of the year.
"What are you going to do," they ex-
claim, "there just isn't enough fruit
left to go around."
Thousands of men and women have
already been thrown out of work as
a result of the frost. Fruit pickers,
packers, graders, the truckmen who
cart the citrus products from field
to packing house, workers in the
limhr ilk whnxi Pmnlo ed in the

come, faces a new relief burden.
These frost-victims, whose ranks are
growing every day as more packing
houses are closing down, will, without
a doubt, need aid, and both the state
and Federal governments will be
called upon to supply it.
