WASHINGTON, Aug. 4. - A de-
mand for a revision of the month
and a half old Hawley-Smoot tariff
act was made today by Senator
Swanson; Democrat, Virginia, who
contended 17 countries already had
retaliated against it and "universal
depression in all lines of industry"
had resulted from its adoption.
In a statement issued through
the Democratic national committee,
the Virginia senator asserted "the
best interests of the United States
demand a revision of this vicious
bill which is only beneficial to a
very few special interests."
Sees Further Depression
"American agriculture will be
further depressed if this tariff con-

closed to the United States," he
Foreign nations began "retaliat-

bill was pending in congress, he
continued. Since January 1, last, he
said, Australia, France, Poland,
Peru, Greece, Portugal, Finland,
Canada, the union of South Africa,
Germany, Italy, Spain, Denmark,
Honduras, Chile, Cuba and Mexico
had raised imports rates on more
than a score of American commod-
ities, principally automobiles, grains
and food products.
Blow to U. S. Trade
Swanson saw in the recent Con-
servative party victory in Canada
a blow to American trade.
Swanson said American exports
reached the lowest monthly level
for the past six years in June. He
pointed to this as upholding the
contention so often made in the
tariff debates-that America's for-
eign customers "are unable to pur-
chase from us unless they can find
somewhere a market for their com-
