Honduras Takes Much Pride in Her Financial Standing Tegucigalpa, Honduras, April 24. — Honduras is one Latin-American country that has not asked for a moratorium on foreign debts, and in fact has even canceled some of its foreign loans in the last year, according to the message to congress .of President Tiburcio ('arias Andino.

(By United Press). Washington, April 24. — The treasury prepared today to boost the price of silver again to match rapidly rising world market quotations. Two weeks ago the treasury raised its price for newly-mined dometsic silver from 64.64 cents to 71.11 cents an ounce. Speculation has carried the price above 0 cents in London and New York. President Roosevelt and Secretary of the Treasury Henry Mor- gentlfau, Jr., said two weeks ago they would meet the world price in buying- silver from domestic producers. Pri-ce changes must be made by presidential proclamation. Foremost among the reasons i for the government's successive raising of silver prices was the theory that a steadily rising silver price will boost other commodity prices and hence aid in restoration of prosperity.

According to the dispatch, Mr. Lutz ruled that highway debts contracted by county commissioners in 1934 may be paid with 1935 revenue from the county's share of gasoline and automobile! license tax receipts. Several days ago county officials were at Indianapolis and explained the local situation to Mr. Cosgrove, who is chief examiner (13y.

Is Xot UsinR Dictatorial Methods With Congress. Washington, April 24. — President Roosevelt has so far abandoned his so-called dictatorial way with congress that politicians are looking around for a reason for the change. Mr. Roosevelt may have shifted his congressional strategy to protect the administration against charges of dictatorship or to permit legislators to prove they are not new deal rubber stamps. Some observers believe Mr. Roosevelt merely is recognizing that this congress is not sstfely secured to new deal objectives and if handled roughly might break away in a general bolt. ,_ i Alice, the 16-year-old daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Cleon Hughes residing at Cedar Corner was operated for appendicitis at -the Mercy hospital in Elwood Monday and is reported doing nicely.
