LaFollette Is
Hardly Threat
As Roosevelt
Stiffens Hand
Pressure Of F.D.R. Forces
Senate Consideration Of
,rTax DespiteOpposition
Third Term Strategy
Seen In New Tactics
WASHINGTON, April 23.-(AR)-
The definite progress President
Roosevelt has made in the past two
weeks toward regaining leadership
of his own party in Congress is of
more immediate consequence to the
Administration than the outcome of
the liberal conference just called by
Governor Philip La Follette of Wis-
Governor La Follette's call for a
meeting of liberals next Thursday
raised the possibility of a three-cor-
nered presidential race in 1940. But'
this threat of a third party candi-
dacy is still a matter of speculation
rather than fact, and 1940 is two
years awa.
On the other hand, Mr. Roosevelt's
recent tactics may have prompt
political results.
Direct White House pressure forced
upon rebellious Senate Democrats a
tax revision compromise providing
that the business-criticized undis-
tributed profits tax should be re-
tained in a greatly-modified form.
This gives the President at least a
tactical advantage in his apparent ef-
fort to make this year's Democratic
primaries and general elections a test
of the Administration's popularity
with the voter.
Both House and Senate are expect-
ed generally to approve the tax com-
promise. Their acceptance of it may
influence the final outcome of. the
renewed White House drive to write
a Wage-Hour Act into the statutes at
this session. The President's defeat
of Senate efforts to repeal the undis-
tributed profits tax tends to impress
a fringe of'HOuse Democrats who
have been wavering in their support
of him.
In event both the tax bill compro-
mise and a rewritten wage-hour bill
were forced through Congress by
presidential pressure, Mr. Roosevelt
could go to the country during the
campaigning with "a new slate of
leadership accomplishments to stress.

Bows To Illini

Bad First Inning Awards
Illinois 7 Runs; Loss Is
Second For Wolverines
CHAMPAIGN, Ill., April 23.-(Spe-
cial to the Daily)-A bad first in-
ning, in which Michigan committed
three errors and allowed four walks
while Illinois knocked out two hits to
score seven runs, resulted in the Wol-
verines' second straight defeat by Il-
linois today, 14 to 7.
After the disastrous first inning,
Michigan, led by Capt. Merle Kremer
who banged out a double and a single
in four times at bat, battled on even
terms with the Illini, and scored the
same number of runs.

Besides Kremer, who kept Mich-
igan in the game yesterday by hit-
ting a home run with the bases full,
Dan Smick was the most potent hit-
ter. He drove out two safeties in
five attempts, and scored one run.
Bert Smith, who took over 'thE
pitching duties from Smick in the
first inning, might have guided the
Wolverines to victory except for a
streak of wildness which resulted in
nine walks. Though he was nicked
for twelve hits, he kept them scat-
tered except in the fifth inning when
Illinois bunched five to score three
Michigan scored its first run in the
fourth when Smick was safe on an
infield hit, advanced to third on an
infield out, and scored when Fred
Trosko hit a deep bounder to the
second baseman. The second Wol-
verine run was scored in the fifth
when Brewer drew a pass, went to
third on Kremer's double, and scored
on an infield outs

With new faith in his "realistic"
policy as a result of these achieve-
ments in quick succession, the 69-
'ear-old Prime Minister returned
freshened from a fishing holiday to
olunge into this packed schedule:
1-Sealing a pact with Ireland
Monday which may go far toward
removing the long-standing differ-
ences between the two countries.
To Present Budget
2-Giving final approval to anew
budget from which the nation's tax-
payers will learn Tuesday whether
they must pay more to keep rearma-
ment booming on a large scale. The
public will not know from whose pock-
et the cash will come until then when
Sir John Simon, chancellor of the
exchequer, will present the 1938-39
budget to the House of Commons.
3-Mapping procedure for getting
League of Nation's approval to recog-
nize Italy's conquest of Ethiopia-a
vital part of the new Anglo-Italian
4-Conferring with French Pre-
mier Edouard Daladier and French
Foreign Minister Georges Bonnet

policy for maintaining European
peace and, if that fails, closer mili-

likely to occupy an important place
in the Anglo-French talks.
Britaln's Problems
Britain meanwhile faces the stern
necessity of finding millions of pounds
sterling additional for rearmament
under the handicaps of slowly declin-
ing business and a tax rate already
the highest in her history.
The Cabinet will be given the bud-
get details Monday at a special ses-
sion after Sir John Simon has spent
the week-end rechecking the figures
which he and his financial advisers
spent weeks in compiling.
Then on Tuesday Sir John, will
stride to Parliament with the fateful
program in the dull red morocco dis-
patch case every chancellor since
William E. Gladstone has used.
Rearmament estimates-exclusive
of money to be spent on the new naval
construction program-alone call for
expenditure of $1,809,925,000 during
the year.

Sweating, sooty-faced members of

every avenue of the big mine. Two

For many hours the crews worked
grimly, without hope of finding life'

No word of cheer came for sor-

PHILADELPHIA, April 23.-(A')-
The Federal Government moved
swiftly today into Pennsylvania's
Democratic primary battle scene
where warring factions, both vowing
support of the New Deal, are shout-
ing counter accusations of "political
coercion" in relief and public works.
The Work Progress Administration

B. Kelly, Philadelphia Democratic
chairman, told President Roosevelt
he had "undeniable evidence" that
Senator Joseph F. Guffey attempted
to influence WPA workers for polit-
ical purposes.
From the Guffey side came charges
that Kelly himself was guilty of the
sort of "coercion" he laid to the
Senator. The counter blasts topped
off a week's cross-fire of accusa-
tions that brought mention of Gov-
ernor George H. Earle's private in-
come and a Republican demand for
his resignation.
