for Proposal

WASHINGTON, July 1.-(AP)-
Legislation to legalize beer was
brought before the Senate today,
with its sponsors claiming enough
votes to pass it in view of the Demo-
cratic party's stand for immediate
modification of the Volstead act.
The beer proposal was presented
by Senator Bingham, Connecticut
Republican, as conferees on the gi-
gantic unemployment relief bill
neared an agreement which leaders
believed would permit adjournment
of Congress yW the end of next week.
Expecta 51 Votes for Beer
A vote on beer was not the only
adjournment hazard, however, which
was raised before the eyes of the
legislators. Demands were heard
for consideration of currency expan-
sion legislation, and farm leaders
were framing a new agriculture re-
lief bill.
.Binghai offered his bill to legal-
ize" ' d~~iei 'cent bei* af ~a rider 'f6
the administration-sponsored home
loan discount bill which the Senate
took up for debate.
The Connecticut Republican told
newspapermen he believed 51 Sena-
tors would vote for the measure.
He told the Senate he would ask
that consideration be delayed until
the Democrats return from Chicago.
"Thanks to the Democratic plat-
form," he said, "modification now
seems possible."
He recalled that his amendment
to legalize and tax beer had obtained
31 votes earlier in the session.
Pointing out that most of them were
Republican votes, Bingham said:
Counts on Democratic Votes
"Since the adoption by the Demo-
cratic convention of a plank calling
for immediate modification of the
Volstead act, I now hope to receive
enough Democratic support to help
pass this bill, even though it is in
/ the form of a rider."
As an amendment to the home
loan bill, the beer measure was in a
favorable position for consideration,
because administration leaders were
pressing for a vote on the former
which constitutes the last item of
President Hoover's reconstruction
program.
Senator Watson, the Republican
leader, called up for debate the
home loan bill, which would author-
ize the creation of a system of banks
to discount home mortgages and is
designed to put new life into the
home construction industry.
The Senate laid aside the Hawes-
Cutting bill for Philippine indepen-
dence until next session.
Bonds Cut Out of Relief Bill
Conferees on the unemployment
relief bill agreed to eliminate the
provision for a $500,000,000 bond is-
sue to finance a public works pro-
gram.
This would make the bill more
acceptable to President Hoover, they
believed. The measure still retains
appropriations for a public works
program of approximately $300,000,-
000, which would be financed by the
treasury as it desired, either by long-
term bonds or short-term securities.
Meanwhile, the House gave final
Congressional approval to the bill to
turn over $5,000,000 bushels of wheat
and 500,000 bales of cotton to the
Red Cross for distribution to ths
needy. It now goes to the White
House.
Coroner's Jury Asks

Franklin D. Roosevelt, left,

nomination for the Presidency,

ually assured of nomination to

Europe to Ask
U. S. f or Cut
In War Debts
Powers Submit Formula
For Paying Reparations
To German Delegation
LAUSANNE, Switzerland, July 1,
- (AP) - A reparations formula,
softly phrased to avoid stirring up
American opposition, but none the
less firmly linking together the
problems of reparations and war
debts, was submitted by five credi-
tor powers tonight to the German
delegation.
The next move was up to Chan-
cellor von Papen, of Germany. Ger-
man sources were responsible for
a report the chancellor had inform-
ed Prime Minister Ramsay McDon-
ald, of Great Britain, the program
outlined in the formula was not
acceptable to his government.
The formula is a miniature Young'
Plan, containing no figures and no
safeguarding clause which would
protect the European creditor na-
tions in the event the United States
refused to scale down debts. The
figures and the safeguarding clause
will 'lie filled in later.
The conference explained that the
relationship between the debts owed
to America and reparations had
been diplomatically phrased in the
formula. It was understood a plan
of allocating certain sums to the
United States had been altered to
avoid offending the Washington
Government.
The core of the scheme would be
the issuance of bonds backed by
Germany, the proceeds of which
would be used to assist in recon-
structing Europe and to safeguard
nations owing debts to the United
States in the event the American
Government refused to revise those
debts.
The formula establishes the meth-
od of issuing: the bonds, gauges
Germany'scapaci toopay, deter-
mines the interest rate on the bonds,
sets forth how the proceeds would
be used for European reconstruc-
tion, and describes the conditions
under which they might be used to
pay the United States.
The five powers-Great Britain,
France, Italy, Japan and Belgium-
plan to push this program through,
appending to the formula either the
acceptance or the refusal of Ger-
many.

Air Of Grim Comedy Pervades
Democracy's 'Five-Ring Circus'

Victory

When Favorite

York Governor Swept

By DAVID M. NICHOL
(Daily Staff Writer).
CHICAGO STADIUM, July 1.-
(Special)-The American people like
a show and American Democracy
has outdone itself in the past few
days to provide a suitable "five-ring
circus" for public consumption.
But the meetings assumed an air
of grim comedy, together with a bi-
zarre quality and a certain note of
dogged determination, as the dele-
gates of the various states and ter-
ritorities forced, or were forced in-
to, an all-night session which ad-
journed at 9:10 o'clock this morn-
ing only when the limit of human
endurance had long since been pass-
ed. Dawn had lighted the windows
of the giant Stadium building some
time before the first ballot was de-
manded and the remaining five'
hours were devoted to three roll-
calls, marred by heated squabbles
over technicalities and by the tedi-
ous process of several delegationj
polls.
Although the audience of 25,000
persons dwindled steadily as the
evening wore on, several thousandr
.were sttll . in their seats when the
hligwr ~ dele'gatee d$tiiotrxed &iini
morning after the third ballot.
Roosevelt had polled 682 of the dele..
gates votes but was still 86 short of
nomination. Attention was being '

of pledging them to advance no eco-

concentrated upon the delegations
of California and Texas where a
swing from Garner to the New York
governor would produce a few more
than the necessary two-thirds vote.
The ubiquitous Will Rogers pro-
vided one of the comedy spots of
the session as he slouched along in
the wake of a "Murray for_ Presi-
dent" banner. Looking only slight-
ly less shop-worn than the delegates
themselves (it was 4 o'clock in the
morning),- Will contented himself
with the private consumption of a
large box of popcorn and the public
dispensation of a number of quips
at the expense of the sweltering del-
egates.
Later in the morning, a howl of
approval greeted the "22 votes for
Will Rogers" after Oklahoma's name
had been called in the second roll
call. Murray seemed to be demon-
srating his control over the delega-
tion from his own state possibly
with the idea of negotiating a "deal"
during the day. In the first ballot
they had voted solid for the Okla-
homa governor, and in the third
roll-call, after a hurried conference
with "Alfalfa Bill," they split their
vote evenly between Senator Reed

All during the sessions the gal-
leries had seemed curiously out of

When he released his state delega.,
tion just before tonight's session
met, it started the stampede that
swept across the excited stadium.
Smith was the only one of the
nine original candidates who stayed
in to the end. Associates of Smith
said tonight they did not believe he
would support the Democratic ticket.
Smith heard the nomination of
Rosevelt over a radio in his hotel
headquarters. He declined to com-
ment.
"Do you intend to support the
nominee?" he was asked.
"I have no comment to make," he
said.
Will Fly to Chicago
Governor Roosevelt sent a mes-
sage to the convention announcing
the plans.to fly here and appear be-
fore the delegates tomorrow.
Centering the attention of the eve-
ning, William G. McAdoo at the very
outset announced the shift of the
California vote. He said "We did
not come here to deadlock this con-
vention."
Conquered with boos from the bal-
leries, he was cheered to many a re-
sounding echo by hundreds of
Roosevelt supporters, who from the
start have given ovation after ova-
tion to the New York governor.
As soon as the nomination had
been made,the next topic-nomi-
nating a vice-president-became the
dominant subject.
The convention adjourned follow-
ing the nomination till 1 a. m. Sat-
urday.
Texas Votes Released
Numerous members of the Texas
delegation to the Democratic con-
vention signed a petition urging Rep.
Rayburn, head of the delegation, to
release it from adherence to John N.
Garner and permit it to vote for
Franklin D. Roosevelt.
The men passing the petition
around asserted they were not going
to let Alfred E. Smith dictate the
policies of the delegation.
Small Chance to Win
The petition recited that Garner
had but small chance to win the
nomination while Gov. Roosevelt's
chances appeared to be most excel-
lent.

Helen Wills Moody Holds Rank
By WinningWimbledon Title

WIMBLEDON, Eng., July 1.-
(AP)-Mrs. Helen Wills Moody gave
convincing proof again today that
there is no woman in the world who
can stand against her on a tennis
court as she swept over Helen Ja-
cobs, her fellow Californiaian, 6-3,
6-1, to win her fifth Wimbledon
singles title.
Playing well within her game,
Mrs. Moody held the mastery

worth Vines, Jr., the American
champion, already is in the finals
of men's singles and will play H. U.
(Bunny) Austin, of England, for the
title tomorrow.
The one American defeat, that
of Wilmer Allison and John Van
Ryn by Jean Borotra and Jacques
Brugnon, of France, 6-3, 6-2, 6-4,
was more unexpected than were the
three American victories
