strong alignment of House Democrats
repeatedly defeated efforts to write
restrictive amendments into the Ad-
ministration's $3,000,000,000 relief
and public works bill today.
Successively it repulsed Republi-
can attempts to turn the relief prob-
lem back to the states and to reduce
proposed expenditures, while Demo-
cratic moves to limit the discharge of
WPA workers and to reimburse farm-
ers for penalty taxes paid under the
old tobacco control act were rejected
on points of order.
Predict Approval Of Bill
With each such decision, the House
edged so much nearer a final vote on
the measure. Administration . lead-
ers predicted the bill would be ap-
proved by\a wide margin.
Setting;" aside $1,250,000,000 for
work relief, $965,000,000 for public
works and smaller sums for other
activities, the bill is a key item in
President Roosevelt's program of $4,-
500,000,000 in loans and expenditures.
Bi-Partisan Board's Proposed
The first major proposal of the Re-
publican opponents was an amend-
ment to hand the relief problem over
to the states. Representative Bacon
(Rep., N.Y.) proposed that bi-parti-
san boards be established in each
state, and that the states be required
to contribute one-fourth of all relief
"By this plan we believe we will go
a long way toward eliminating politics
in relief and relief in politics," Bacon
said, asserting too hat "more relief
money would reach the people in ac-
tual need."

Hughes Shift
I Legal View
Hit By Wallace1
Supreme Court Decision
Is Criticized In Letter
As Unfair To Farmers
WASHINGTON, May 12.-P)-Sec-
retary of Agriculture Wallace made
public tonight an unprecedented let-
ter to Chief Justice Charles Evans
Hughes telling him, in effect, that he
had switched his position on an im-
portant point of legal procedure.
Earlier in the day, Hughes had
made a speech in which, besides crit-
icizing unnamed judges as unquali-
fied, he called on administrative agen-
cies of the Government to display ju-
dicial "impartiality and indepen-
dence." Although he did not mention
Wallace's department, his listeners
were reminded of a Supreme Court
decision April 25 invalidating a Wal-
lace order reducing rates charged by
Commission men in the Kansas City
livestock market.
The order was invalidated on the
ground the Commission men were
not given opportunity to rebut find-
ings of fact made by an examiner
of the Agriculture department.
Wallace, in addition to declaring
this was a reversal of a position taken
two years ago, sent a letter to Se-
ators saying the effect of the Supreme
Court decision was to give "the Kan-
sas City Comission men and their at-
torney $700,000 of impounded money
which rightfully belongs to the farm-
Wallace said that in the case in
question the findings were not thrown
open to rebuttal, but he contended
that heinherited the case from the
' oover Administration, and that 20
months ago he established the prac-
tice of permitting such rebuttals

Teacher Tenure Plea

measure by Superintendent of Schools
Otto W. Haisley, the board of educa-

referendum on the state teacher ten-
ure law at its last meeting.
The board was urged to permit a

Representatives of teacher and civic

No Wage Cuts,
Lewis Declares
'Practice Right To Work,'
Employers Are Told;

Economists Rapped
In CIO Head's Talk
(,)-John L. Lewis, leader of the
CIO, pounded his fist before the
Amalgamated Clothing Workers to-
day and declared that organized la-
bor would stand for no reductions in
Placing the nation's unemployed
at 13,000,000, Lewis called upon em-
ployers to "practice the right to
work." He declared the unemployed
"not for long this time" would be
"willing to watch their children die."
Sees Stronger Organization
"Instead of letting wages be re-
duced," he thundered, "we shall force
wages higher and higher until the
workers of this country can buy the
food, the clothing and the other
things that are produced by the very
machinery that has forced men out
of work."
Lewis asserted wide-spread union-
ization of workers was the only thing
that prevented the present recession
from becoming "a wild panic," and
announcd that on the first day this
country showed signs of economic re-
covery his group would "spring into
action with an organization drive
such as this country never saw be-
Hits Economic Theorists
"We struck three years ago," he
said, "because we knew we had to
strike when jobs were not at such
high premium. We had only 1,-
000,000 workers to back us then, but
next time we will have 4,000,000 work-
ers back of us, and by the time the
next depression rolls around the
working people will do something
about it."
Lewis scowled at economists who
contend the best depression remedy
is lower wages and lower prices. He.
said that if wage reductions, "shrink-
ing purchasing power and con┬že-
quent lowering of the living stan-
dards of c9nsumers" make for ec-
onomic appeasement, then the Chi-
nese people, who have "an average
income of $30 a year" would be "the
happiest and most prosperous people
on earth--which they are not."
