After becoming friendly with Harrlss, tho radio priest started a vigorous campaign for the remonctination of iillvoi 1 , and later It was disclosed- that CoiiKhlln's secretary. Amelia Collls. had purchased 500,000 ounces ot silver und was tho biggest holder of silver in the country. Senator Thomas of Oklahoma also was a great silver-inflation enthusiast nnd cl'ld 'his best to tack a silver iimondmunt on the Work- Relief BUI In 1935 This was at about the same time Father Coug-h- lln was speculating in sliver and when Bob Harrlss was close to both men. Senator Thomas also seems to havo u bci't 1'or other kinds of speculation and during tho early days of the war proposed that the war' cost be paid by a national lottery. Thomas I'loiids fo.r Cotton . His recent cotton speculations, •however, are especially Interesting- and appear to be closely related to his speeches on the Senate floor. !Mr. HaiTlss, who handles the Thomas family's cotton-trading account ,ls In'and out of the Senator's ofllca every week or so. They . tire very warm friends. The Thomas purchases never go more than 6.000 bales, which is the legal limit for cotton, and -usually the Thomas trading Is through pools ; which generally run up to 20,000 j baloM. I Investigation shows that the Har- j HSH und Voso firm was trading in cotton —and very heavily—between the dates of March'1 and 7, between March 20 and April 'I and between April if. and 12, Harrlss und Vose trading at this time was largely Cor lts customers and the firm was careful to broak no market rufrulfitlons If you compare the dates of the Harris* and Voso cotton-trading und tho dates of speeches made by Senator Thomas, Senator Bankhead plus other members of the C.

For Instance, on March 4, cotton futures were selling as follows: March 27, 29 cents; July 27,' 20 cents; October 27, 1C cents. March A Is . the date when the Harriss and Voao trading became active. Then, on March 6. two days later, Senator Bankhoad .made a public statement charging Chest-r Bowles with trying to put a price ceiling on cotton v and planning a 60 per cent- margin on futures. Prices immediately dropped $3,2o a bale .and recovered .to a close Of about 25 points. On March 7, prices snapped back sharply by J1.10 a bale. The next heavy operations by Har- rlss and Vose were between March 20 and April -1. On March 28. cotton futures were selling for about •>7.|0 cents, at! which time, according to the Wall Street Journal "cotton futures rose 41.35 to SJ 85 a bale on'a late rush of buying orders stimulated by the poa- sibUltv thr.l U;,- Pace Hill woul'l be adopted by the Senate. TWe rally was touched off by the plea .or Senator Thomas (D. Okla.) for higher farm prices in supporting tacking ion of the Pace measure to the Minimum Wage Bill. All futures made 22-year highs. On March 20, the cotton market rose again $2.->5 a bale as a result of Senate statements by members of tho Cotton Bloc, Again the Wall Street Journal commented: "Predictions by Senate sponsors of the Pace parity Bill thut the Senate would approve it as an amendment to tho Minimum Wage measure developed broad buying in cotton futures." Again on April 1. cotton soared again, as a result of cotton-spokesmen's operations in Washington. "New maneuvers by the lotton Congressmen," remarked the Wall Street Journal, "to .assure unsssge of the Pace Parity-Raising measure .provided the structure for a shnrn rally In the cotton futures market." On April 3, cotton was still soar- Ing; but on April 4, the Harrlss and Vose operation got out of the market. Simultaneously the price •jf cotton dropped. The next Harrlss and Voso op- oration was between April 8 nnd 12. The date April 8 is significant, because, next clay, Congressman Stephen Pace pressed Cor early action on his Bill In the House of Representatives. The cotton market soared. Then on April 12. Con- gi-essmt'.n Pace announced that he would not attach his amendment to other legislation but that It must stand on its own merit. This meant, of coui-sc, that it would not pass; so the cotton market dropped. Simultaneously the Hnrriss and Vose operators got out of the market. While It is not illegal for a senator or his family to speculate on the cotton market'or Tor him to give tips to his friends, ' it seems only fair that the public should, have tho right to know about his operations and be able to form its Mail, Convicted Of Muriler; Will Have New Trial Montpeller, Vt, May 9 —<UP>~-A\ new trial looms .for 26-yoar-ctd Harold Frotton, former Worcester.
