While his animal budget message, Justice Sutherland Retires January ^ 8 Roosevelt Given Long Awaited Opportunity to Increase "Liberal" Faction of Supreme Court to Dependable Majority Washington, Jan. 5 (fp)— Associate Justice George Sutherland announced his retirement from the Supreme Court today, giving President Roosevelt a long-awaited opportunity to Increase the court's "liberal" faction to a dependable majority. Four of the remaining members- Stone, Brandeis, Cardozo and Black —have habitually espoused a liberal interpretation of the Const itu- But it could reverse Ihe decision by which the AAA was invalidated, to Mr. Roosevelt's expressed annoyance.

This cal w as being read in the j asking nearly a billion dollars for ' appointment would give the liberal the Army and Navy In the 1939 fis-j group five ot the court's nine inem- hers. Aside from these five, Chief Justice Hughes and Associate Justice .Roberts have occasionally supported the liberal and occasionally the conservative side. They thus held a balance of power, which, as Washington sees il, will end with Ihe new appointment. Of course, the new alignment would not reverse the court's historic decision outlawing the NRA as unconstitutional, a verdlcl which touched off Ihe long Administration battle against the courts. The vole in that case was unanimous. Senate and House, he conferred at the White House with legislators and naval officials about a special message asking a supplemental outlay for a bigger navy. Chairman Taylor (D-Colo) of the House Appropriations committee, one ot the confereees, said the message would be dispatched "as soon as convenient." Hints Are Given From others at the conference came hints the message would ask a. basic new warship building pro; gram for several years to come, replacing the 1934 Vinson-Trammell Act. Thus the United Slates would follow the lead of Great Birtain and Japan In abandoning the yardstick of the expired Washington and London naval limitation treaties. The program laid down in the Vinson-Trammel Act was based on the Washington and London treaties. The President's budget message advised Congress that "world conditions over which this nation has no control" and "future events which today cannot definitely be foretold," might make It necessary for him to ask additional defense funds. Pending such, action, he recommended allotting $560,827,000 to Hie Navy and $418,796,000 to the Army, pins emergency funds which (Continued on Page 10) Loan Granted to Railway Company Washington, Jan. 6 (Jf)~ Jesse H.

The announcement was made after B. and O. securities displayed -weakness on the New York Stock Exchange today. The railroad had had a request pending for some time. FANFARE HERALDS FILING BY PHOEBUS Somerset Counrian Enters Race While Son Toots .Trumpet Annapolis, Md., Jan. 5 (.¥)— Heralded by authentic trumpet blasts, Stale Labor Commissioner Harry T. Phoebus marched inlo the Siale House todny and filed his certificate of candidacy for the Republican Gubernatorial nomination. On the steps of the Stale House, Ihe Commissioner's nine-year-old son tooled a trumpet vigorously as Phoebi'.j approached. A few minutes later, Executive Department clerks were startled by a second blast, prefacing Ihe aclual filing. Young Harry T., Jr., explained his study of the trumpet hadn't advanced farther than the single blast. By May 1, he said, he hopes to be able to play "Here comes Ihe next Governor" when his father approaches. He'll learn the song, he said, as soon as he and Ihe Commissioner can write the words and music for it. Only one person other Ihan Ihe Phoebus parly and clerks wil- nessed the filing which marked the entry of the first Republican in the tight for Staiewide offices in 3938. The "outsider" was Slale Senator Robert B. Kimble (Rep., Allegany), who is. demanding Phoebus' dismissal.

Everyone Interested had his list of possibilities and some ot them were lengthy. But several names stood at or near the top of each. These Stanley were Reed, Solicitor Senator General Sherman Million of Indiana and former Senator Sam U. Bratton, now a judge of the Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals. These three were known to have been among those under consideration when Black was appointed last year. Other names mentioned included: (Continued on Page 10) OFFICIALS DISCUSS RELIEF-SITUATION Nice Suggests Borrowing under 1933 Low to Meet Problem Annapolis, Md., Jan. 5 (!P)r~ Gov. Harry W. Nice today suggested a state law enacted in 1933 authorizing counties and cities to borrow money for relief: a solution to the situation brought about in Cumberland and Allegany county by industrial layoffs. Mayor Thomas W. Koon. of Cumberland, and A. Charles Slewart, president of the Board of Al- legaiiy County Commissioners, after conferring with their .attorneys " by telephone, left to call meetings of the City Council and Commissioners to borrow funds under the law. Mayor Koon, Stewart, H. W. Smith, secretary of the Cumberland Chamber of Commerce, and James A. Duudon, C. I. 0. representative, appeared before the nancial meeting relief 'Speaking before the Hagerstown Rotary Club at yesterday's luncheon meeting, Robert S. Byfield, president of the Foreign Bond Asso- needs in the county and city. Stewart said that from 11,000 to 12,000 employes had been laid off by industries in the county and city since September. He said relief funds available were insufficient ami aboul $6.000 collected by private''contribution to meet the need had been exhausted. Governor % ;iee broke in to point out the law eucated by the 1933 special session of the Legislature. It allows counties, incorporated towns and cities, with the exception of Baltimore City to borrow an amount up.to 8 cents on their tax rates to give assistance to persons in need. He said the law had never been repealed.

DECREE GRANTED Frederick, Md., Jan. 5 (<P)r- as if a number of prill- decree granting a divorce lo Mrs.. men that the current recession was almost wholly confined to the United Slates and "we cannot find a 'foreign goat' this time." Mr. Byfield, who possesses a broad background of infernalionai service and business experience and is currently engaged in the work of advising American holders of foreign bonds., is of necessity in close touch with economic conditions throughout the world. As a' result he is unusually well qualified to speak on present conditions from an inlernalional point of view. American Born The speaker, in poinlingoul lhat the present recession is American horn, showed that conditions abroad arc relatively good. The consumption of raw materials outside our borders is continuing at a high rate whereas our own Is dropping steadily. We aro still lending the world In the consumption ot commodities but Llm pace of our leadership Is slnc.kcniug. \ Strange to say, Ihe vory\ .nl- lam abroad, which hits been tinder severe criticism, may actually pro- vent or nl. lonst cushion a decline In world business activity. Unlike hi 1*23 when »fl»M cipal nations had locked Ihem- selves up in more or less airtight compartments, financially speaking. The disturbances in Ihe Far East and Spain are by no means contributing factors in the business decline. Spanish imports have not fallen off lo any extent, and Japan is using a tremendous amount of scrap iron. Mr. Bylicid also pointed out that the various international ' production controls such as exist with respect lo rubber, copper, sugar and tin are much butler organized than they were six years ago and, generally speaking, have Iho confidence and support of producers and consumers throughout Ihe world. Commodity prices, therefore, should not so easily drop Into a tail spin as Vlous years. These conlrol schemes should continue to be reasonably successful provided our own depression does not grow very decidedly worse In which cnsn thpy will probably collapse.

Washington, Jan. 5 (/P)—President Boosevetl forecast a billion-dollar deficit for the next fiscal year today, and he warned the nation that two grave uncertainties — foreign troubles .and the relief needs of the unemployed—may increase that estimate. "I refer specifically," he said in his annual message transmitting the budget to Congress, "to the possibility that due to world conditions over which this nation has no con- ;rol, I may find it necessary to request additional appropria- ;ions for national defense. "Furthermore, the economic situation may not improve —and if it does not, I expect the approval of Congress and the public for additional appropriations if they become necessary to save thousands of American families from dire need. But, even with these "ifs" removed from consideration, he told Congress, the budget, so far as can be foreseen now, will not be .balanced next year. Although contemplated government spending will be less, he said, the effect of the current depression will be to offset these savings because of smaller revenues from corporation and individual income taxes, and other sources of Captain of Prosecutor's Detectives Joseph Cocozza announced that Genevieve Owens, 17 (left), and Mrs. Ethel Strouse Sohl, 20, had confessed the. robbery-slaying of Bus Driver William Barhorst two weeks ago.

RENEWED STRUGGLE FOR TERUEL RAGING Troops Clash for City in Height of Aragan Winter Heiidciye. Franco-Spanish Frontier, Jan. 5 (IP)— A renewed struggle for strategic Teruel in Eastern Spain raged today 'in the height of the Aragon winter. Government advices said their defending airmen, machine-gunners and artillerymen poured lead with devastating' elfecT^HTo^the reinforced ranks of Insurgents attempting lo push Into the provincial capital from the Northwest and South. The two armies, described by both sides as one of the greatest, concentrations of the civil war, fought In deep snow on Ihe outskirts of Teruul while within the city (lovernment forces still tried to wipe out a bitterly-resisting Insurgent garrison. Insurgents said their soldiers, driving ahead In an attempt to capture the city "within three days," pushed forward more than a mile through snow lhat was sometimes three feet deep along the front northwest of Teruel. Government dispatches reported a score ot Government field-guns "annihilated" one-fourth of the Navarrese and Foreign Legionnaires of the altai-king Insurgents. Before the atiai-k began, fiovern- ineiit sources said, the defending troops were withdrawn from their trenches. Artillerymen waited until waves of Insurgents left their own trenches and opened lire. A Government communique announced (be result was "a slaughter" and complete collapse of Ihe Insurgent attack. Dispatches from the Government side reported machine-gunners left in pits behind the fioverilmenl s first line "mowed down Ihe enemy" as they struggled in deep snow to return lo their trenches. Both Insurgents and Ihe Oovern- menl asserled they had advanced soulliWard of Teruel. SAFELY TRANSFERRED Contanza, Rumania, Jan. 5 (IP) — Michael, 16-yeai-old Crown Prince of Rumania, tonight was transferred safely aboard the Rumanian steamer Dacia from the storm-damaged Rumanian destroyer Rcgina Maria during a Black Sea blizzard. WHISTLE iS TESTED; MANY COMPLAINTS City Officials Report Objections to Proposed Fire Alarm The "fog horn" blew and the lei cpboues in Cily Hall and the Western Enterprise fire hall rang during n test of a new fire whistle yesterday afternoon. Such complaints as "I sleep In the daytime" and "In a few minutes I'll be a nervous -wreck,' poured into the ears of city officials and firemen throughout the duration of Ihe brief test. Said Mayor W. Lee Elgin last night: "It makes no difference to me whether the new whistle is purchased or not.' The Mayor and Council do not (".specially want it, and no action was taken by us until representatives of Ihe Western Enterprise Fire Company twice requested us lo replace the old, obsolete bell with the new, modern sounding device." Mayor Elgin concluded with the statement lhat Ihe $1,000 the whistle would cost installed could be used for other governmental purposes. The new whistle, audible for miles, was tested early yesterday afternoon. It was plainly heard in all seclions of Ihe city. Firemen contend the bell now in use doesn't make enough noise lo summon i unteer firemen who live several blocks away from the fire hall. Councilman Harry T. Fridinger, who with Coiincilmen Miller and Martin is a member of the fire committee, said it was his opinion lhat the whistle makes too much noise and is loo expensive.

DEFICIT OF BILLION DOLLARS FORECAST NEXT FISCAL YEAR Roosevelt' Warns Nation of Two Grave Uncertainties •Relief and Foreign Troubles—Which May Increase the Estimate Business was'good during Ihe flrst ten months ot 1937. he said, and there was "every reason" to expect that the government's income would show successive increases in the last, present and next fiscal years. At the same time, the Administralion was counling on decreased relief ieeds to reduce lolal expenditures. "That," Mr. Roosevelt said, "was the basis for our expectation-of.a balanced budget for the fiscal year 1939," But, he added: ! The recent recession in business has changed thai outlook. Today, it Is necessary to revise estimates of revenues. They will be less than n-e anticipated. Th'ey will, as far as we can tell, remain below our estimated necessary expenditures. "We hope that the calendar year 193S will bring an improvement in business conditions and, therefore, in tax receipts. The Treasnry, leaning to the conservative si.de, predicts some improvement over the present level but does not assume In its figures that business in the •alendar year 1938 will reach as high a level as in the calendar year 1937." However, the President obviously drew satisfaction 'from the fact lhat (again omitting the uncertainties of national defense and relief) the deficit expected for next year -will be smaller than that now estimated for the current year and the latter below the actual figures for 1937. "In other words." Mr. Roosevelt said, "for the third year in succes-. sion we would continue to decrease the deficit." The following simplified table gives the gist of the President's budget for the next fiscal year (ending June 30, 1939): Receipts from taxes $5,869,000,000 Other receipts 50,000,000 Total income $5,919,000000 All expenditures or Total outgo ?6,869,000,000 Net deficit 950,000,000 Increase in the public debt or net amount borrowed 850,000 000 Size of the public debt .at close of year.. .$38,528,000,000 The public debt of $38,528,000,000 predicted for next year would set a new record. Commenting on the figures, Mr. Roosevelt said the "most important fact of this budget is the reduction of $539,000,000 in the estimated ex-' pendittires" for the coming fiscal year. And here he added his warning of what may happen if more battleships are deemed necessary, or the unemployed continue to increase. An attached'"breakdown" of the expenditure estimates showed where the President expected the savings to be made. To obtain next year's estimated spending slash of $539,000,000, the President cut his estimates for relief to $1,138,304,000—down $841,356,000 from . this year's figure's. But he added: "The economic situation may Improve and if it does not, I expect the approval of Congress and the public for additional appropriations if they become necessary to save thousands of American families from dire, need." .. Complete Budget Nevertheless, for the first time in three years the President presented a complete budget, Including relief estimates which previously had been, left until later. He did so, apparently, on the basis of a treasury forecast that business would Improve. "We hope," he said, "that the calendar year 1938 will bring an improvement in business conditions and, therefore, In tax receipts. The treasury, leaning to the conservative side, predicts some Improvement over the present level but does not assume In Its figures that business in the. calendar year 1938 will reach as high a level as in the calendar year 1937." Mr. Roosevelt asked an Increase ot $34,300,000 to bring defense spending up to a record peacetime level of $991,300,000 in 1930. His message mentioned » |B4,847,- 000 boost In regular defense funds, but part of thla difference wa« offset by allocation ot less emergency money for defense neit year than 111 the current period. Other important features of the budget message, which u uiual was read to the two homes of Congress' separately by their clerki, Included: A recommendation that Control, either by legislation or « conttitu- tlonal amendment, protlde thi, Ohio! Executive with nuthorlty to BICYCLES FIGURE IN TWOMISHAPS Boys Injured in Collisions in Western Section of City Bicycles figured, in two accidents In Ihe western section of the city last night.

O'Conor, candidate for the Democratic gubernatorial nomination, warned tonight, that "business must not be impeded by government."
