Y, SATURDAY, JULY 22, 1939. Single Copy, 3 Cents FIVE POWER PACT IN EUROPE REPORTED Senate Sees FDR OK For Politics Ban WASHINGTON (If) -- Usually well - informed senators forecast today that President Roosevelt would sign the Hatch bill despite some criticism he has made of the measure, which prohibits political activity by most federal employes. The senate sent the bill to the White House yesterday without a vote being recorded against it. but only after a stormy scene which developed over talk of side-tracking it. " * Weeks ago. the chamber passed the bill unanimously. It came before the senators again on the question of accepting minor House amendments. Senator Hatch (D-NM) warned that to reject them would mean sending the measure "to the graveyard." Those who predicted today that Mr. Roosevelt would sign the bill pointed to public utterances in which the President expressed approval of its major objectives. There was much speculation among members of Congress, however, as to the practical political i effect of the bill if it should be- ' come law. Some members have contended one provision would prohibit most federal workers from taking part in national political conventions, and thus would weaken any administration effort to control the 1940 Democratic nomination. Vice President Garner told reporters after the Senate passed the measure originally that they could write it down that the bill would become law at this session. After the final action, Garner strode jovially about the Senate floor shaking hands with several senators. Hatch and Senator Minton (D-Ind) -- the latter had urged unsuccessfully that the bill be sent to a joint committee to eom- .pese- .differences -between the Senate and House -- also shook hands. During debate. Minton denied an assertion by Hatch that there was "a move on foot" to side-track ths bill He told the Senate he had felt the bill should be sent to a con-, ference committee because it had not been studied sufficiently by the Senate. "I have no dagger up my sleeve for his beloved bill." Minton declared. "I have no intention of knifing my friend in the back. I want him to have his bill. He has his heart set on it. and so far as I'm concerned -- God bless him."

Jones, the federal loan administrator, has advised the Senate banking committee that the Reconstruction Finance Corporation is "going to have plenty of losses" on the loans it already has made to business. An unrevised record of Jones' testimony on President Roosevelt's new lending bill was circulated among committee members today. The printed text showed the former RFC chairman was asked by Senator Townsend (R-Del) whether the lending agency had made all business loans which "were in any way eligible." "We think we have," Jones answered. "We are not infallible. We make plenty of mistakes and plenty of bad loans. We will have a very substantial percentage of losses on our business loans." "The liberality of the policy is going to show up in the losses yov take?" interjected Senator Adams (D-Colo). "Yes," Jones responded. "We are going to have plenty of losses." Adams then asked whether thej losses would "run as high as 10 to! 20 per cent", and Jones replied: "I sm ashamed to tell you what I think | it will be. It will be plenty." Jones testified that the RFC was currently foreclosing on $12.000.000 of industrial loans and that it would take a "very heavy loss" on the transaction. "If anybody makes loans on a more liberal basis than we are making them now," he added, "they will be grants--they will not be loans."

PITTMAN ASKS SENATE BALLOT ON JAP TREATY TOKYO (fi) -- Agreement between British and Japanese representatives on the form and issues of negotiations over conflicting China policies was announced today and Japanese officials hailed it as a "great victory." The cabinet approved the agreement after receiving a report from Foreign Minister Hachiro Arita in which he was quoted authoritatively as declaring "Britain has accepted all Japanese proposals" on subject matter and arrangements for the projected discussions. Cabinet approval cleared the way for a general conference unless London disapproves the agreemnt, between Arita and British Ambassador Sir Robert Leslie Craigie. The general session probably would start next week. Neutral sources conceded that Japan had scored in the agreement but Japanese exultation was dampened somewhat by the fact that London has failed to reply in the more than 24 hours elapsed since j Sir Robert and Arita came to terms. i With Britain's approval the conversation between the ambassador and foreign, minister would be joined by military and diplomatic aides.

It \vas learned, however, that Rep. South (D-Tex), would try to eliminate the entire section dealing with water carriers. Some members held that it did not matter much what changes the House made because the bill already had passed the Senate in much different form and probably would be entirely rewritten when the two branches sought a compromise. Some informed legislators went so far as to predict this would take until next any of the loan fund for government-financed, competition with private utility plants, but it adopted an amendment by Senator Barkley (D- Kv), who introduced the bill, to prevent loans for any project which \vould be "in substantial competition" with private enterprise. ty Senator Not Clear On Deflated Boom session.

Father of Kidnaped Minister Collapses Blockade Major Ports HONGKONG (JP) -- The Hong- kong government was informed officially today that the Japanese navy was laying mine fields along ! several Kawangtung province coastal stretches, across the entrances to a large bay northeast of Amoy and also across entrances to two bays immediately north of Svvatow. The Japanese control both Amoy and Swatow. but adjacent coastal indentations provide backdoor approaches from both ports to minor points still unoccupied. Minelaying will relieve the Japanese navy of the necessity of patrolling all but the major port approaches. Extension of the minefields southward along the Kwangtung coast is expected, Money Crisis Spreads SHANGHAI (ff) -- Coolies were substituted for telephones and postage stamps were used for currency today as Shanghai's money crisis spread to affect nearly everyone in the city. Although the Chinese dollar strengthened after yesterday's sharp declines, the crisis continued with these results: Scores of stores refused to sell merchandise for local dollars, re- sardless of the price offered, because dealers feared further slumps. Some stores quoted prices in foreign currencies. The accord, the Inquirer reported, consists of nine major points: "1. Danzig would be returned to Germany, but under the technical classification of a. free port, thus leaving it open to Polish commerce. 2. The status of the Polish Corridor would be modified to satisfy both Germany and Poland, with Germany presumably bavin? tret access to East Prussia and Poland continuing to have free Danzig and her port at Gdynia. 3. Italy would toe given representation on the directorate of the Suez Canal. 4 Italy . would be given participating rights on the railroad linking Addis Ababa with French-owned Djibouti. " ' 5.

The increase was the second in succession after a steady decline Irom the "peak" of $29,191,105.905 hi 1931 and Graves said, "mirrors a steady recovery of real property values and continued advances in new construction of homes and business buildings."
