TWO MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, DECEMBER 17 1936 personal safety but the government will never come to political terms with him." Chang's- legions were reported retreating on Sian in the face of advancing divisions of China's central army under General Ho. <Che "young marshal's" troops were said to be cut off from all aid to the east and outflanked by a loyal force to the west by the well-trained government troops moving in force to rescue their imprisoned chieftain. Rushed to Conference. Closeted with Elder at the residence of Dr. H. H. Kung, acting civil head of the central government, and Madame Chiang, the dictator's wife, was Dr. T. V. Soong, who flew from Shanghai to join the conference that may have paved the way to end the Chinese crisis. First Elder, a member of the executive Yuan, and then Dr. Soong, was rushed through the streets in a closed motor to Dr. Kung's residence. Their arrival caused mounting excitement in the small group of officials who \vere informed of their presence. The selection of General Chiang Ting-Wen as intermediaiy for the negotiations was considered significant. Cause of Rebellion. His appointment by the dictator to replace Marshal Chang as commander of the anti-communist forces in the western provinces was considered by many to have been the immediate cause of the rebellion. It was reported here fear-inspiring demonstrations of government warplanes over Sian had caused the,marshal's willingness to negotiate! Four hundred planes, one report said, darkened the skies over the provincial capital as an indication to the rebels of the Nanking government's ability to blow Sian off the map. Numerous air fields of Honan province are well stocked with the pride of the Nanking air force. The machines are of the latest models produced by America's foremost makers of military aircraft.

APPROPRIATIONS MAY BE BIGGER Congress Still Has -Hopes of Emergency Spending Reductions. By DOUGLAS B. CORNELL .WASHINGTON, (£>)—House appropriations ' committeemen spoke Thursday of a possibility congress might have to increase instead of trim appropriations for ordinary government expenses. They have not given up hope of taking a big stride toward a balanced budget by paring emergency expenditures. They said, however, any such slashes might be offset partially by larger appropriations for departments whose functions have been enlarged. "As long as we keep adding agencies and functions," said Chairman Buchanan (D.-Texas). "We've got to appropriate for them, and we can't cut down," More Than Original. He said the treasury-postoffice appropriation for the fiscal year beginning July 1 might reacn $2,500,000,000—some $100,000,000 more than the original sum for the current fiscal year. Representative Taber of New York, ranking republican member, who has been attending subcommittee hearings on this appropriation, said: "I haven't seen any signs of cutting down expenses so far." Part of the prospective increase in the treasury-postoffice fund, Buchanan indicated, may be attributed to placing the alcohol administration in the treasury and to giving the department added duties in connection with the social security program. . Half Billion Needed. Buchanan said he expected$500,000,000 would be needed to pay the government's share of old age pensions under the social security act. Subcommittee hearings also are under way on the fund for independent offices. These received $3 396,751,906 at the last congressional session, but $2.237,000,000 of this sum was for the bonus, which was not classified as an ordinary expenditure. The committee heard that President Roosevelt might be able, to submit the proposed federal budget to congress at the start of the approaching session. While they could not recall offhand any previous instance of a delay, Buchanan said "it won't make any difference." Postponement Possible. One reason for a possible postponement, he said, is that 13 agencies are being brought under the budget system for the first time. Previously they paid their expenses from receipts, but now they wi.ll have to obtain congressional appropriations and turn their receipts into the treasury. These agencies are the Reconstruction Finance corporation, Home Owners Loan corporation, Federal Housing administration, Commodity Credit- corporation, Public Works administration, Home Loan Bank board, Electric Home and Farm authority, Federal Farm Mortgage corporation. Surplus Commodities corporation, Federal Savings and Loan Insurance corporation, Reconstruction Finance Mortgage corporation and the two export-import banks of Washington.

I ain't had any trouble in-a year that a dose of soda or a new hat wouldn't cure." New Snow May Have Wiped Out Trace of Lost Plane Aircraft and 500 Men on Horseback, Snowshoes and Skis Hunt. SALT LAKE CITY, (£>)—New fallen snow.was feared to have wiped, out any trace of the lost "Western Air Express transport plane, its seven occupants now believed dead. As aircraft and- 500 men on horseback, snowshoes and skis concentrated a search in the Wasatch mountains 25 miles southeast of here, Lieut John Campbell, army flyer said: "Everything is white up there. It is very doubtful that the plane could be seen from the air because of the new snow. 'The only chance is that wind will whip up the new fall from the wings so the sun will shine upon them." Lieut Campbell had circled over the snow drifted region near which villagers reported hearing a plane "in trouble" a few hours after radio contact with the missing airliner was lost before Tues-* .day's fog-shrouded dawn. Frank Crimson, piloting the only radio equipped plane in the search, reported he "could see absolutely no trace" in a swing south of here along the Wasatch mountains.
