The Bee: DonviUe, Vo., Friday, February 23/1940 DEMOS GAIN CONFIDENCE IN TREATIES Even Republican Foes Con= cede They Can't Defeat Extension WASHINGTON, Feb. 23.— secret, eleventh-hour strategy meeting with Secretary Hull bolstered today the expectations of administration, leaders that the House would approve continuance of the reciprocal tracjjk program. Even Republican foes conceded that they could not defeat the extension resolution, but Republican Leader Martin said there was "a real chance" that a bipartisan coalition would be able to force through restrictive amendments. A 'group of Democratic lieutenants, however, laid plans to Insure a full turnout of supporters for today's voting. Hull's Capitol Hill yesterday, n rarity lor him since he entered the cabinet, emphasized the Importance which he attached to the House action. He conferred with Democratic Leader Rayburn and Democratic members fo the House ways and means committee for nearly two hours. The hottest floor fights Involved amendments to require ratification of all future trade pacts by the Senate or by both the House and Senate. The latter was suggested in the recent report of the Republican program committee. Led by Rep. Coffee (D.. Neb.), .a sm^ll group of farm state Democrats lined up with Republicans behind the Senate ratification amendment. Other'farm members talked of an amendment to prohibit reducing tariff* to a point which would bring the cost of an Imported commoditj below the cost of producing the same article In this country.

Unless it Is authorized, no more reciprocal trade pacts can be negotiated by the state department after June 12. While the House wrestled with the trade program, the Senate was in recess.'Its finance committee is ready, however, to begin consideration of the extension resolution Monday. The House military appropriations subcommittee called Gen. George C. Marshall, army chief of staff, to testify at private hearings on the army appropriation bill. The measure is the last of the defense appropriation bills on which the House has to act. There was speculation as to whether it would be subjected to a trimming by economy advocates comparable to the 5112,000,000 cut from the navy appropriation bill. The House banking committee tooK up the Senate-approved bill designed to give the Export-Import Bank another $100,000,000 for loans to tin- land, Sweden, Norway and other countries. House leaders worked out a tentative agreement to permit speedly action on the legislation Monday, provided the committee approved it during the week-end.
