LUXURIES WILL BE CHIEF SUFFERERS (By United Press.) WASHINGTON, D. C., Nov. 4.—Although the recent decline of Block prices probably will reduno sales of luxuries, it will not affect basic Amor- lean industries which are "fundamentally sound," Secretary of Commerce Lamont said today. Lamorit said he believed tho stock market's affect on business would ho mora "psychological" than real. Ho pointed out tho reduction oC ready collateral caused by stock losses would decrease the ready mon«y available to DO spent on luxuries. Substantiating his statement that basic industries were unharmed, Lamont cited a census bureau report showing the.levcl of inventories Nov. 1 was identical with that of tho same dato a year ago. Orders for merchandise have increased and commodity prices are lower than, or equal to, those prevailing at this timo last year, Lamont said. "None of the underlying conditions which usually foretell a recession In business now is present," ho said. City Assessor L. A. Woomer and his assistant, John J. Carey, are now engaged In a whirlwind finish of tho assessment for tho current year. The outside work must be finished within a day or two s6 that tho notices may be written and mailed out to those who have made property Improvements this year, not later than next Monday. The. appeals will bo held on Nov. 18 and 19. The assessors have thoroughly covered all tho old portion of the eity and will now cover all the annexed portions !o round up late improvements and to cheek up on those previously listed to determine if everything Is right. There will bo approximately 1,000 notices mailed out next week to who have creeled new buildings or who nave made improvements of sufficient volume to warrant a change in valuation. In addition there will be a number of notices to he to those who ro Klven a partial valuation last year because their buildings were not completed. The assessment fit tho annexed territory was made very hastily last winter and it has necessary to do considerable checking up. This increased the volume of work confronting' the assiessors but they are finishing on schedule time and everything will he ready for malting the final adjustments on the two appeal days. Following tho appeals It will be possible for councilman to take up Iho annual budget making task, to fix the tax rate and make tho appropriations to the several departments for the ensuing year. Early in the new year, ot just as soon as weather conditions permit, Iho triennial assessment will bt undertalccn by tho assesors. ADDITIONAL WEDDINGS. your. Dr. Green JEAN HOLLAR WED TO LIEUT.

Every Night So You Can Shop After School Hours In Comfort. THE CHILDREN'S SPECIALTY SHOP H15 12th Ave. By PAUL B. MATJLOJf, Staff Correspondent. WASHINGTON, D. . C.,. Nov. 4.—• No trace of a social lobby has been found by the special agents fc .• the senate lobby investigating committee and the committee has decided not to go Into that oft-reported but never dis- d factor in the making of legislation, Committee Chairman Caraway announced today. Taking issue with Senator George W. Norria, independent, Republican, Nebraska, who believes the women of official Washington have much to do with making and breaking govornment poiicies, Caraway declared he dr,ea not believe there is such a lobby. "At least I am confident it has not been effective," he told lite United Press. Charges Repeatedly Made. Charges have been made repeatedly from the floor of both the house and senate that wives of prominent officials have always had considerable influence over some senators or representatives by the distribution of social favors. The inferences of such a lobby ftate back to the Jacksonian administration when the president's cabinet was wrecked by the refusal of cabinet wives to accent Mrs. Pebby Eaton, and those who believe it &till exists hark to the Grand administration, when Kate Chase Sprague, wife of the senator, exerted such an influence upon public events. Of late years there have been no such concrete public examples < :cept perhaps tho recent hint of Senator Smith W. Brookhart, Republican, Iowa, concerning a mysterious dinner, at a local hotel here several years ago, at which he contends liquor was served. There were no ladies present, and Broolchnrt haa said only that it was i;lven "by a Wu.ll street man named Fahey" to new senators and that liquor was served to senators in hip flasks. He Is to go before the grand jury Wednesday and has announced he will tell all the facts to the jury. IJrooUluirt On Warpath. With Brookhart on the warpath and alleged bootlegger arrested last week on tho steps of the senate office building, senators are getting skittish over the mere mention of liquor. A humorously inclined tsaator several days ago put an old fasiiioned wooden cocktail mixer in the lecit of one of the prominent dry leaders in the senate chamber. Fearful of the publicity which might attend if it was found in his possession during this harrowing era, the dry leader slipped it into the desk of another senator, who In turn, passed it on. Fully six senators suffered mental torture by this hoax before one, deciding tho joko had gone far enough, wrapped the unwelcome implement in a newspaper and carried it away. The lobby committee will resume Hearings tomorrow with J. A. Arnold of the Southern Tariff association on tho witness stand. The delay v/as accorded In order that members pf tho committee might attend the senate session today when Norris brings up tts resolution condemning the tariff 'activities of Senator Hiram Bingham, Republican, Conneticut as disclosed by the lobby committee. Peace conferences over the week-end wero unavailing and the resolution Is expected to be adopted, although some modification may be proposed.
