The hcuse cleaned up its tax bill job in less than four hours today except for a final roll call on passage defeating minor opposition amendments and leaving the measure ready for immediate passage and transmission to the senate tomorrow. Failure of organized republican opposition to develop unexpectedly cleared the wav for perfunctory consideration of the; bill. Only two amendments were offered in addition to three revisions annroved bv the democratic leadership. The opposition changes were beaten down without record votes. The 236 page bill was read in sketchy fashion as house members appeared to recognize that the bill, supported by the wavs and means committee, could not be amended without committee backing. Republicans Scarce The first test, vote was on an amendment to give employers tax credit if they increased payrolls. The proposal, offered hy Ren. Harry Sauthoff, Prog. Wis., was ri"feated on a standing vote, 07 to 22. . i Previously th house, hoping to speed the bill through to roll call I stage today, accepted perfunctorily two revisions sponsored by democratic leaders. . All mnior controversial sections! of the bill .were .tacitly approved by midafternoon, except the windfall tax provision. At times there were less thnn half a dozen republicans on the floor. It appeared republican leaders were as anxious as democrats to get the bill out of the way with i dispatch. MISSION GROUPS UNITE TO TEND REFUGEES' NEEDS Addis Ababa, April 28.

' Salem, Ore., April 28. Gov ernor Martin and Attorney-General Van Winkle fought a battle of words today over the paroling of 35 men who pleaded guilty yes terday to riot charges in Clatsop county circuit court. . . . The attorney-general declared the governor had agreed to pur-oles as a solution of the lumber union warfare and that Willis West, Clatsop county district attorney, who opposed the release of the men in court, had also previously given his consent to the plan. The governor, however said this morning he "would like to see a vigorous prosecution" of the cases. West asked him to remove Van Winkle from control of the remaining cases. Martin Powerless Van Winkle said the governor had ordered him into the cases over his protest that he did not have any appropriation out of which to pay a special prosecutor and thut the governor had agreed to supply the money. A statement by the governor lhat he was powerless to act further because the attorney-general had "assumed absolute, personal direction of the prosecution of, the cases" brought a retort from Van Winkle that the- law ' compelled him to' take' complete control when ordered by the governor to prosecute a case. "The district attorney ,ls; to have nothing to do with the prosecution except as I direct hirn," Van Winkle said in a slap at West, who complained at being shunted out of the cases. . ; ; Although Martin said Van Winkle had told him he would name E. B. Tongue, , Hillsboro attorney, special prosecutor, the uttorney-general said he had never had any conference with Martin as to Tongue's employment. "I was called into the, august presence of the governor when Mr. West and County Judge Guy Boyington first asked him for as sistance," Van Winkle said, "Mr. West had employed Mr, Tongue, but the county court refused to pay him. I have never done anything but tentatively consider the appointment of Mr. Tongue."

Responsibility for getting the government out of private business rests solely upon business itself, Daniel C. Roper, secretary of commerce, told the 24th annual meeting of the United States Chamber of Commerce today. Answering previous speakers who had charged the government with invasion of private industry, curtailment of private initiative and competition with private business, Roper said: "The best way to take the bureaucracy out of government is to place more responsibility on nongovernment agencies. 'While it is true that during the emergency period the federal government assumed many of the responsibilities of individuals, industries, and municipal and state government, it does not mean that these responsibilities properly belong to the federal government." Roper's defense of the new deal and its policies was made after Harper Sibley, president of the U. S. Chamber of Commerce, had given an inferential answer to the administration's challenge to industry to take up the slack of unemployment. Sibley told the convention 5,-000,000 persons had been returned to the payrolls of private enterprise by the. end. of-1935.. Roper answered charges of interference by proposing a ten point program of co-operation between government and business which, if carried out, he said, would lead the nation out of the depression and return all employable persons to gainful occupation.

Dr. Allan Roy Dafoe said today charges made by Oliva and Elzire Dionne, parents of the quintuplets that the famous babies were not getting sufficient food were contradicted by the splendid physical condition of the girls.

They said their famous children were fed only "a greenish mash, mashed fruit, oatmeal por ridge, barely a third of a cup of milk each, and a small crust of brown bread." If the Dionnes had their way, they said, the quints would be given thick soups, cooked vegetables, rice and "all the milk they could drink. They also claimed, despite re ports from the hospital to the con tiary, that the girls can not speak "a word" of French English. TODAY'S SCORES American League R.

King Fuad I. ninth sovereign of the present Egyptian dynasty, died today in the 15th year of his reign, at G8 years of age. Prince Farouk, his 18-year-old son, about to leave London for Cairo, automatically succeeded him. to reign under a regency headed by Prince Mohammed AH, third cousin. The king's funeral will be held Thursday. King Fuad died after a long period of ill health, partly due to the great strain of the political situation, with leaders battling alwavs over relations with Great Britain the dominant nationalists demanding absolute independence and asserting that Britain dominated Egypt because'' t its vital importance in the Mediterranean, commanding as it does the approaches to the Suez canal running through it. Death was due to stomatitis, (in-flnmmation of the mouth, 1 complicated by gangrenous tendencies. The king's death came at an in.onportune momont for Egypt, while rival political factions are struggling for power P"d unrest it seething as result of alleged British domination of the Egyptian government. Cairo and other cities still show signs of recent bloody riots in which troops and police battled nationalist demonstrators and students, killing scores and wounding hundreds, during anti-British outbreaks.

The state board of higher education Monday approved a 1936-37 budget providing a reduction of $50,-000 in operating expenses compared with the current year. The budget total is $2,501,519. Chancellor Frederick M. Hunter warned: "Additional revenue in considerable amounts must.be available to the state board of higher education if serious damage to this great source of wealth and advancement is to be avoided." Hunter said that revenue for next year, reduced by $06,000 in state millage income, was $1,-500,000 less than in 1930. "Considerable impairment in training equipment, in instructional assistance, in necessary books for maintaining libraries, and in needed departments is becoming apparent," Dr. Hunter said, in submitting his first budget as chancellor. "The system this next year will be receiving from all sources approximately $1,500,000 less than was received in the year 1930-31. The people of Oregon certainly do not intend to impair their own productive resources and reduce the levels of cultural living in the state by inflicting damage upon the institutions of higher learning, whose research aclivties alone produce increased revenue for the people of the state in excess of $10,00,000 a year." Principal allocations made from unrestricted funds in the budget, as adopted, arc: Oregon Slate college, $947,432; University of Oregon, $703,962; University of Oregon medical school, $254,417; Oregon Normal, $147,058; Eastern Oregon Normal, $62,862; Southern Oregon Normal, $69,995; general extension, general and agricultural research, centralized activities and special projects, $238,795; reserved for emergencies, $50,000. In making new reductions, an effort was made to protect institutional work, and such activities will receive 58.8 per cent of all funds, while administration will get only 2.4 per cent. The remainder goes to physical plant upkeep, research and extension, and less than one per cent to capital outlay and bondedj indebtedness. The board decided to file for a PWA loan and grant for a $70,000 girls' dormitory at Eastern Oregon Normal and for $400,000 for a chemistry building at O. S. C. On recommendation of President C. V.
