AAA Suits
Pernitted
By Senate
Processors Eligible To
Sue Sharply Limited In
Compromise Measure
Roosevelt Favors
Barring Litigation
All Governments Have
Right To Immunity, He
Tells Reporters
WASHINGTON, July 19. - (,) -
The Senate today left open the door
to suits against the Government for
recovery of AAA processing taxes, but
sharply defined those who might pass
through it.
A compromise amendment to the
AAA bill was adopted, 61 to 23, limit-
ing those who may bring suit to pro-.
cessors who can prove they have not
shouldered the taxes off producers or
consumers.
This action was taken after a high
wall of opposition had arisen to a
blanket prohibition against suits of
any character for recovery of pro-
cessing taxes paid prior to enactment
of the pending measure.
Meanwhile, President Roosevelt was
telling reporters at the White House
that he believes the Government
. should have the power to bar suits
against it. He referred particularly
to the pending bill to ban litigation
against the Government on gold
clause securities.
Every government in the world ex-
ercises its right of sovereignty in this
respect, the President said.
The . compromise on the AAA
amendment in the Senate was vari-
ously hailed as "just" and as inviting
┬░raids on the Treasury," but it served
to move the bill a long step nearer
final action. Senator Arthur H. Van-
"benerg, of Michigan, voted in favor
Even as the tax compromise was
adopted there came open predictions
by Senate leaders that the bill would
go on into next week, regardless of a
Saturday session demanded by Ma-
jority Leader Joseph T. Robinson.
Meantime, there came crackling
tbout the ears of AAA supporters two
more court decisions against it. In
Houston, Tex., Federal District Judge
T. M. Kennerly declared lilegal its
price fixing and licensing provisions
as far as they applied to fruit ship-
pers in the Rio Grande Valley, an
orange-producing section.
District Judge Randolph Bryant, at
Sherman, Tex., granted an injunc-
tion against. enforcement of the
Bankhead Cotton Control Act, a one-
year extension of which had been
attached to the pending AAA amend-
ments.
A Justice Department official dis-
closed that 359 court actions had been
filed against the AAA. This was a
sharp boost from the 153 cases on
dockets at the time a Boston Circuit
Court ruled adversely.
"It is only a very thinly disguised
attempt," Judge Bryant ruled at
Sherman, "to regulate the production
of cotton under the pretext of the ex-
ercise of he taxing powers of the Na-
tional Government. This power, if
it exists at all, is not committed to the
National Government under the terms
of the Constitution of the United
States, but is expressly reserved to
the states."
Hottest opposition in the Senate to

the tax-suit prohibitory section arose
over a dual provision in the bill under
which taxes paid prior to enactment
of the bill could not be recovered, but
those paid after its enactment would
be open to suits.
"To say that the taxpayer hasn't
his right to aday in court," Senator
Walter F. George, Georgia Democrat,
protested, "is un-American, and I
regret a Democratic Administration
ever has proposed it."

Day Of Trial

Ward Goodrich pleaded guilty today
to the brutal murder of 11-year-old
fLillian Gallaher and wxas given a max~-
imum sentence of life imprisonment
at hard labor in the Michigan branch
prison at Marquette.
The guilty plea came a few min-
utes after the opening of the third
day of the former trap-drummer's
trial in recorder's court, following tes-
timony by Dr. David R. Clark, re-
ceiving hospital psychiatrist, that
Goodrich was not insane.
The confessed slayer, who had de-
clared "it must have been the other
side of my nature" which led him
to entice the girl to his one-room
apartment here last Sept. 20, attack
and murder her, stood trembling be-
fore Judge Henry S. Sweeny as the
sentence, mandatory under Michigan
law, was pronounced.
For two days the state had ham-
mered at Goodrich's defense of tem-
porary insanity, and twice-Goodrich
had been on the verge of terminating
the trial by pleading guilty.
Today he asked one of his attorneys
to move for a brief adjournment. At
its conclusion he said, in the presence
of the judge, court stenographer and
other court officials:
"Let's get all this over with. ]

Returning to the courtroomi Harry
C. Hanley, attorney appointed by the
court to defend the former inmate
of an Ohio asylum for the insane,
formally entered the guilty plea.
Prosecutor Duncan C. McCrea told
the court he would rather that the
jury had been allowed to decide the
case.
