Funds tor other ships proposed by the President would be provided in a deficiency appropriation later this session, Representative Taylor said.

RECESSION PLACED AT DOOR OF U.S. (Continued from Page 1) extracts from Sir Arthur 'Solter's recent article -in -the. Tale. Review which was us.e.d by one of the Administration's spokesmen. . He pointed out paragraphs which were om,itted In the spokemau's speech and which, taken as a whole, indicate that this eminent British economist feels that our government ; establish business confidence a prerequisite to business recov- He stressed the fact that price ovements are usually interna- and that prices have risen gh less and less abruptly In this try than elsewhere. As a mat- it the United States stands the list with an increase See 'approximately 14 per cent, Dls's prices in France, the first le list, have gone up over 40 per cent. The speaker backed up all his statements -with indisputable' facts anil figures, many of them taken from data Issued by such authorities .as the League of Nations. Mr. Byfield stated that he believes that, if business confidence restored, the present decline will be quickly ended and the.upward swing resumed. Some idea of the speaker's qualifications may be gathered from the following facts. In addition to the Piesldenpy of Foreign Bond Associate^ Inc., and membership in the New York Stock Exchange firm of Kay, Byfield and Company, he served on the American Relief Administration in 1919, seeing service in Czecho-Slovakia, Poland, Hungary and Austria.

Proposals to curtail spending on major public works projects such as highways, river and harbor Improvements, flood control, public buildings and reclamation projects, because of the lessened" government income and because "It has been amply demonstrated that they do not provide as much work as do other methods of taking care of the unemployed." Disclosure that continued deficits do not mean continued borrowing on the financial market— because of government trust funds available for investment In government securities. The President, in his message and his conference with the press stressed the reduction of $539,000,000 in the estimated expenditures for the fiscal year 1939. He placed them at $6,869,043,000 as compared with $7,408,842,000 for Ihe present year.

Partially balancing them off, he recommended the following increases: $52,917,000 for regular activities of the departments and agencies, more than accounted for by additions totaling {62,000,000 for rural electrification and the Maritime commission; the national de- tense Increase; $143,573,000 for agricultural adjustment, due to cotton subsidy payments; $155,525,000 for social security; $49,000,000 for debt payments and $180,000,000 for revolving fund acounts. Incidentally, the estimate for crop control proper was $440,000,000—the same as estimated this year for soil conservation—despite congressional forecasts of more .ambitious spending. The President dlsttugiiished between fixed expenditures, those for regular government activities and those -for nocessary relief on the one hand, and those for public construction, which he said could be contracted or expanded with government income. Obligations for relief, he said, "though large in amount, can be reduced only by depriving a very large proportion of our populatlou of benefits which modern civilization insists on." But he said funds for public conslructjion should be curtailed. He noted that under his administration appropriations for roads, river and harbors, reclamation and government buildings had been running much higher than in the past. He proposed cutting; them all, but said "a justified demand for greater protection against floods has developed." 1931 STUDEBAKER COUPE Thfn car ItnN been llNtrnuglily reconditioned and winterized.

CHANGES URGED IN SOCIAHECURITY Officials Testify at Hearing of Senate Investigators Washington, Jan. 5, (&>).— A Wisconsin, relief official told Senate Investigators today that unemployment Insurance has a stabilizing effect on employment. Paul llaushenbush, director of the Wisconsin unemployment compensation division, said benefit payments being made under the five- year-old Wisconsin law, had given employers "the maximum possible encouragement to regularize their employment." Ttie employers wished to preserve the compensation funds they had built up with the state through tax payments and as a result tried to avoid laying off workers, the relief oulcial said. Both Raushenbnsh and A. J. Altmeyer, chairman of the Social Security Board, urged changes '<i the Social Security act. They testified before the Senate unemployment committee. The state relief oillcial said Congress should amend the act to require all states to select their Social Security personnel from Civil Service rolls. The chief of the Social Security Board urged an amendment which would permit the states to begin payment of unemployment benefits more quickly.

Mil., Jan. 5 (ff>)— Dr. Harry ,1. Carman, professor of history at Columbia University, today forecast desl ruction of "the economics of scarcity" by technol- 1 ogy in spile of what, he called "artificial harriers . , . placed In the way of change." Dr. Carman spoke to more lhan 100 Maryland farm agents and home demonstration agents, gathered here for an Extension Service school. Barriers supporting the scarcity economics, he said, were monopoly, dumping on-foreign markets at less than domestic prices, "production ot goods that require quick replacement, protective tariffs, loading of distribution costs, .deliberate suppression of new inventions, and racketeering." The Busy Bee Sunday school class of the Nazarene church met in Monday evening at the home of he teacher, Mrs. Richard Kretzer, Jryau Place, and elected Loretta DlffenUerfer as president for Ihe omlng year.

Sutherland, for years a bulwark of the court's dwindling conservative bloc, announced his retirement at u brief press conference In his chambers at the coHrt building. Affable and apparently well-pleased, he handed reporters a brief letter addressed to President Roosevelt. "My Dear Mr. President: "Having reached the age of more than 75 years, and having held my commission as associate justice of the Supreme Court of the United Slates, and served in that court, for li> years, and thus being eligible for retiremeiit under the Snmners Act of March 1, 1937, entitled 'An Act to provide for the retirement ot justices of the Supreme Court,' I desire to avail myself of the rights, privileges and judicial service specified in tlmt act, and to that end I hereby retire from regular active service on the bench, this retirement to be effective oil and after Tuesday, the eighteenth day or January, 193S." Among Hie "rights :ind privileges" lo which he referred is a guaranteed Income of $20,000 annually for the rest of his days. The Sumiiers Act, permitting retirement at full pay, was passed, some said, to encourage older judges to leave the bench. The judicial service of which he spoke, is the privilege of serving from time to time in the lower courts, if he chooses to do so. Justice Van Devanter, who retired under similar conditions, is now performing such service. Sutherland, whose small wiry figure and pointed, steely grey beard w.'s a familiar sight on the bench, was one of the few Supreme Mrs. Powers, wife -of Paul E.
