Workers Encounter NeW Barrier After Cutting ;1 Through Rock - SPIRITS HELD GOOD Doctors, Stretcher Bearers Wait for Chance to Get to Victims i Moose River, N. S., April 22. Rescue crews sawed feverishly to day at a twisted mass of old steel which seemed to be the last Bar-, rier separating them from Dr. D. E. Robertson and Elfred Scaddlng, who have been entombed 141 feet underground in an old mine foe 233 hours. Shortly before 1 p. m, EST:, th rescue crews, working at the peril of their own lives in an old shaft that crumbled years ago, picked their way through what they believed was the last rock between them and the two imprisoned, men. ' Good Spirits Reported They could talk to Robertson and Scadding, who were reported to be in "good spirits" although suffering. The rescuers then encountered still more obstacles and at 2:04 p. m., a government-official announced that they had not yet been able to reach the trapped men. First it was a mass of broken and rotten old timbers. Those wero not hard to get through. Then the steel the remains of the mine railway that was used 25 years ago to haul ore out ot the pit. Hack saws were rushed into the shaft, and the rescue crew, work ing long past its usual time foe relief, went to work on them. Exhausted Men Replaced Minister of Mines Michael Dwy- er went Into the shaft .to i direct the final phases of the rescue. Minister of Health F. R.

Sporadic but bitter criticism of the activities of federal agents led to an angry outburst in the senate today when it was proposed to slash $225,000 from a $6,025,000 house appropriation for the federal bureau of investigation, headed by J. Edgar Hoover. Critics of Hoover in the senate and house recently had accused him of "czarist" activities and charged agents with reckless and unnecessary shooting in their campaign to wipe out kidnaping and gangland rackets in the United) States. '..,) The fund in question was contained in the $115,718,015 suppljt bill for the state, justice, commerce, and labor departments. , "This is a peculiar and queer5 place to start economy," protested! Sen. Arthur H. Vandenberg, R., Mich., in opposing any slash. He said Hoover had requested! the larger appropriation so that 175 federal men could be added to his staff. "The American people don't want this kind of economy nor will they aprove it," said Sen. Walter F. George, D., Ga. Chairman Kenneth D. McKellar, D., Tenn., of the appropriations sub-committee in charge of thd measure, a critic of the federal agents, said the decrease was recommended because the house had exceeded budget estimates and boosted the proposed appropriation far beyond what it had been in the past. . i , Optional Military Petitions Circulated Petitions are appearing on Albany streets this week seeking an Initiative measure to make milii . tary training optional at the University of Oregon and Oregon' State college. Students at both schools are now required to take two years of K. O. T. C. training as a requisite to graduation. ! The Oregon Committee for Peace and Freedom, sponsor of the initiative, has secured more than 30 volunteer petition pushers in Albany. Charles Paddock,' chairman of the committee, was here today starting the main drive. He said the move has been endorsed .by the Linn county Far-merLabor "association, as well as the State Federation of Labor and the state grange. . ; ilTQIED PAIR L House Democrats Admit Measure Short of F-D Request ANGRY DEBATE IS DUE Republicans Expected to Start Attacks Wednesday on Washington, April 22.

But the democrats proposed mat the deficiency could be acted on more intelligently next session. Deficiency Admitted rwnit thp admitted deficiency in yield, the democratic group was as vigorous in defense of the sweeping tax revision program as republican colleagues naa been in condemning it as a "foolhardy experiment" and a "face- saving gesture."

Angry Debate uue Speculation as to the White House reaction to the committee drait of the bill arose immediately in, view of the President's re- TUfat'ri " :Tntement that' 'the bill must raise .sutticient revenue to mit treasury budget needs. Only yesterauy ivir. Roosevelt made his views clear in a secret White House meeting with two pimoressifmul lax leaders.

Nevertheless leaders were still confident the measure would be passed in about a week without substantial change. The senate starts committee hearings on taxes this week.

TAX DO Court Refuses Request to Produce Letter Sent Secretary Ickes LEGAL TILT FURIOUS Power Company Man Says PWA Makes Threat to Cut Rates Washington, April 22 The gov ernment today defeated demands of utility companies attacking constitutionality of its $200,000,- 000 municipal power program for publication of a secret exchange of letters between President Roosevelt and Public Works Administrator Harold L. Ickes defining the new deal's power policy. Washington, April 22. Private utility Interests fighting the new deal's $200,000,000 municipal pow er program, demanded today that the government produce a secret note President Roosevelt wrote Public Works Administrator Har old L. Iekcs outlining the new deal s PWA power policy. The message written from Hyde Park, N. Y., and initialed "F. D. R." in pencil became the central issue of the utilities' dis trict supreme court fight to have the government's policy of using federal funds to finance public-owned electricity systems declared unconstitutional. Frank Protests Demand The request that federal attorneys produce the president's note was a surprise move In the power companies' attempt to prove the government was using its power program to hammer down utility rates." Jerome Frank, PWA attorney, protested the utility demand. He challenged the right of the power attorneys to subpoena the president's correspondence. "Well armed with fishing rods, line and plenty of bait," he said, "they are on a piscatorial expedi tion to see what they can find. The demand came after a legal dog fight between Frank, Newton D. Baker, former secretary of war, and Dean Acheson, former assist ant treasury secretary, over the authority of PWA's electrical board of review. Over government objections, George H. Carter, Marlin, Tex., utility vice-president, said Col. Henry T. Hunt, public works offi cial, telegraphed him Aug. 22, 1934, lhat PWA would finance a municipal plant in his home town "unless your firm reduces its rates." TOWNSEND GETS CALL TO TESTIFY STARTING MAY 5 Washington, April 22. Econo mist Robert R. Doane told a house investigation committee today that the operation of the proposed Townsend old age pension plan would cost $800 a year in taxes on a family with an anuual Income of $1,800. Doane resumed testimony be fore the committee after it had summoned Dr. Francis E. Town-send, co-founder of the plan, to appear May 5. Spending of $200 a month, as proposed in the Townsend plan, Doane continued, would step up production in all lines with the result that all natural resources would be exhausted 25 years earli cr than otherwise. "To keep the capital structure intact, Doane testified, "we need increased saving. The Townsend plan is based on a theory of con sumption on a vast scale which is just the opposite of a theory of saving.' TODAY'S SCORES National R. H. E. Boston 0 5 1 Brooklyn 5 10 1 Chaplin.

I Strike sponsors, who include jmany liberal and radical organizations, predicted more than I,-1 000.000 persons would participate in some manner in the United States in demonstrations of a de sire for peace. The strike call aboard was the first outside America. Plans for the demonstration called for students, as on two previous years, to walk out of their classes today. Outdoor mass meetings were the day's order in most strike centers. New York City school authorities capitulated to the strikers I by arranging peace assemblies in 'all but three of the city's high i schools.

Tells D.A.R. to Their Knitting' tainly degenerated tremendously intellectually. "If in 1776 we had had the D. A. R. in place of the mothers, the revolution would have failed. If they went back to their knitting, they would accomplish a great deal more than in sitting in convention." ' The D. A. R. committee said a touchstone of most of the "so-called peace urganizations" was their support of "the pernicious Frazier amendment" which would automatically outlaw war and the Nye-Kvale bill to prevent appropriation of money fur compulsory ROTC in land grant colleges. The report contended Frazier's amendment "purports to outlaw war but would, instead, merely outlaw the United States of America." Frazier reported that the D. A. R. is "one of the super-patriotic organizations which always takes opposition to any peace proposals." Mrs. V. E. Sisson told the auine 4.000 delegates that her committee's work regarding the constitution had "absolutely no partisan political significance.' W DELY SPREAD an's Memorial hall in Albany.

'Twas said that he did 70. and that was not discreet. And now he makes the headlines with a terrible tirade 'gainst Hoover and his G-men. for the lecord they have made.
