Act No. 3 Governor Futrell's campaign pledge to oust the old state highway commission and reorganize the highway department Was authorized by enactment of Act Uo. 3 of 1933. i'it took effect February 1, and a new 'commission of;five members was im- "iinediately appointed.

The scheme that the visionary ^outlined in 1918 was probably very impractical; but 'it fl&ye resulted in a worse all-around mess than the reatens the peace of the world ? Nevertheless, He Did It D.'Roosevelt announced during the cam- if/elected he would cut 25 per cent from the ' operating budget he was greeted by a loud of derision: liong article's were written to prove that a.j^b was simply impossible. His foes laughed at him; his ierids uneasily wished that he would think before he spoke. ||:.V.. To'date Mr. Roosevelt has been president a little more "~(a,n a. month; and the 25 per cent reduction that he prom- bfl h^s'b^en made, with a little margin to spare. To-make jt, of course, he had to tread heavily on some jfy sensitive toes and beat down influential opposition in his party. But he didn't seem to mind doing it; and today eQiujtrymen are confronted by the novel and agreeable $~Qt a, president who believes that a campaign promise jns just exactly what it says. Revenue From Beer f J3N the beer bill was being put through Congress, it was estimated that the taxes accruing from the sale of the ,~.TftSre would bring the federal treasury approximately |JJP50,000,000 a year. IFbegins to look now as if this estimate ~ cere far too low. To yield that much revenue, the beer industry would have , jto sell 30,000,000 barrels a year—an average of slightly more I? than 82,000 barrels a day. During the first 24 hoors of legal ''r, yeliable estimates put the total sales at between 1,000,- fand 1,500,000 barrels. To be sure, sales will not continue in anything like that But even if they go on only at a tenth of that rate— surely a. conservative estimate—the tax revenue will greater than $150,000,000 a year. It looks as if the beer tax will be a far more important revenue producer than anyone had dared to hope. 16,to-l Silver Is Beaten by Senate But Vote Is Close, and Inflation Tide Continues to Rise WASHINGTON — (/P) — Word from the White House Monday defeated Senate advocates of monetary inflation ar a means of aiding the farmer. Trieir proposal to add remonetization of silver to President Roosevelt's agri_ cultural relief bill was defeated, 43 to 33. Amid echoes of the turbulent '96 campaign, the Senate resounded all afternoon to demands for free coinage ot the white metal at 1G to 1 with gold, sponsored by Senator Wheeler, Democrat, Montant, and urged by others. . The president's opposition to make currency inflation part of the farm program was considered by many senators the decisive factor in defeating the silver amendment. Opponents were amazed by the strength shown tor it and. said several who favored inflation vQted against it only because Mr. Roosevelt did not want it added to the agriculture bill. A moment before the vote Senator Robinson of Arkansas informed Senator Borah, Republican, Idaho: "The president does not desire" the amendment. Borah had said he would vote against it if the president disapproved, although tho Idahoan had contended farm relief and inflation went hand in I hand. Wheeler, asserting that countries with depreciated currencies were ruining American markets, contended his amendment would double commodity prices in a year and linked with his argument the y coming economic conference and an attack upon Great Britain in that connection. Senator Connally, "Democrat, Texas, said he did not think Wheeler was helping the conference's chances for success "by denouncing one of the most powerful countries" that will participate. Kainey for Inflation Remonetization of silver as the preferable me-thoci of expanding the currency was advocated earlier by Speak- er Rainey at a press conference. "There is strong sentiment throughout the cotmtry for some inflation," the Illinois Democrat said. "Sentiment is rapidly crystalizing in the house for it. I personally favor it." Rainey said he was an "irrcconciablc Bryan 16' to 1 man" and preferred expansion through silver. "I think the United States can go ahead on a plan to remonettze silver without an agreement with England and France, but it will be better if we can get concur- rency with those counlires." The speaker made it clear that he was giving his personal views. He explained he had not discussed silver with President Roosevelt and was unaware of the administration's attitude. - THIS CURIOUS WORLD - So They Say!

Striding across Lafayette Square to the White House, Morgan found the president in conference with anxious government officials. Reports ticked in from New York, revealing the continuing drain of gold. At last a yellow slip Was passed to Treasury Secretary Carlisle, It told him that just nine millions of gold remained to the United States. And there was one check outstanding for 12 millions! "I Will So Guarantee!" Then, and only then, did the president turn to Morgan. Morgan was ready. A solution had come to him over his game of solitaire in the hotel room. He had recalled a Civil War act cmprowering the government to buy gold coin toith its bonds or notes. It opened the way out. Cleveland agreed, with the stipua- tion that Morgan procure half the gold from abroad, and guarantee that the gold the treasury received for its bonds would not immediately bo withdrawn for foreign account and ship- pod abroad. Morgan did not hesitate. "Mr. President," he said simply, "I will so guarantee." The conference broke up. Morgan headed a syndicate which raised ?65,000,000 in gold for the government, taking its bonds for $62,000,000 in exchange. Afterward, questioned by a congressional committee, Morgan was asked why he was unwilling that other firms should secure for the United States this i badly-needed foreign gold. Simp- Morgan answered, again ly, "They could not do it." NEXT: Midwife to U. 6. Steel, the ouse climbs to a plrtnaclc a* to n dozen nations. 'Gabriel Over the White House' Here Walter Huston Opens Thursday in Film of President-Dictator Undoubtedly the most sensational story ever writtsn about Washington, "Gabriel Over the White House" opening a two-day engagement, Thursday at the Saenger will provide a talkie drama thrill from its very opening reel to its stirring conclusion. Walter Huston triumphs with a great performance as President Jud Hammond and in a series of scenes as realistic as newsreels forces Congress to give him the powers of a dictator, solves the unemployment problem, ends racketeering and brings foreign debt uncertainty to a close. The story throughout has a ring of authenticity. Brilliantly directed! by Gregory La Cava, it will undoubtedly stir up a world of controversy and talk wherever it Is shown. Huston has never had a more stirring role and an ex- cclent supporting cast includes Karen Morley as the mysterious woman in the White House, Franchot T,one, Arthur Byron, Dickie Moore, C. Henry Gordon, David Landau, Samuel Hinds, William Pawley, Jean Parker and Claire Dubrey^ _- -^»-a ^ The migration of birds is believed to have started in the latter part of the tertiary period when the ice sheet came down from the north.

MacDonald, who is lame, limped to the microphone in front of the judges' stand. His ascetic face was unusually pale. Standing with his hands in his trousers pockets, he looked Judge Ulrich square in the eye and, in Russian, said: "I confessed and I have nothing to add."

House. All those reorganizations were com- ] plicated and diverse. But thi-ough them all ran the Morgan pattern: An insolvent railroad or industry was financially revamped, new capital introduced, new management provided. It was given close relations, official or j unofficial, with other properties which had formerly been competitors. And, by means of voting trusts, acquisition of stock, or interlocking directors, the House of Morgan retained a measure of control. The banker was becoming more (him banker. [Morgan Saves (lie Treasury The 19th century was coming to its close, and as the new century drew near and dawned, two more incidents set the House of Morgan on a pedestal that became almost a throne. They were the saving of the U. S. Treasury when it was within one day of being utterly drained of gold, and formation of the first billion-dollar corporation, U. S. Steel. The treasury incident showed masterful Morgan at his best. At the beginning of 1805 panic conditions were leading to steady withdrawal of gold for shipment abroad. By the end of January, the government's gold reserve had fallen to 40 millions, far bp- i low the "safety point."
