Senator Miller (D-Ark) joined Harrison in the discussion to assert that the Southern people would "revolt" if the "long hand of flio Federal government" reached into their communities. Harrison also advised presidential and Supreme Court aspirants in the Senate to "stop, look and listen" before voting for the anti- lyiicU bill.

These men had best beware, be declared, adding that they would not "add anything to their standing as lawyers or their qualifications for the highest court" by voting for "such a legislative monstrosity" as the anti-lynching bill. The bill would "ravish the Co.il- stitntion, violate every principle of local self government and rob the sovereignty of the states," he said. Miller told the Senate the bill was "not aimed at the South anymore than it is aimed at our form of government." It would soitiel the death-knell of the right of slates to regulate their own affairs, he said.

WAR VOTE PROPOSAL DEFEATED IN HOUSE BY 209-188 VOTE Ludlow Amendment to Require Popular Approval 1$ Kept in Pigeon-hole After President Assails Plan as Likely to Embroil U. S. Washington, Jan. 10 (/P)— The proposed Ludlow amendment requiring a popular vote before a declaration of war met defeat today when the House refused, 209 to 188, to take it out of a Committee pigeonhole. Jubilant Administration men, who conducted an almost unprecedented fight to keep the measure from the floor, declared the vote killed it, at least for 1938. Before the vote President Roosevelt wrote Speaker Bankhead declaring the amendment "would encourage other nations to believe that they could violate American rights with impunity." Tonight State Department officials privately expressed gratification at the House's action, taking the position that : t facilitated the executive branch's conduct of foreign affairs. The National Council for Prevention of War declared the fight for the amendment had just begun, adding: "The exhibition today of presidential control of Congress in peace-time shows clearly that Congress cannot be counted upon to check the administration in any war crisis. * •*' The proposed amendment was ottered by Rep. Ludlow (D-Ind) three years ago. To Tiecome effective it would require a two-thirds vote ot each branch of Congress and approval by three-fourths of the states. After it had long been bottled up in the House Judiciary committee, its backers succeeded recently in getting 218 names on a petition asking that the committee be relieved of it.. That petition forced today's vote. Making one ot his rare speeches today, Speaker Bankhead read Mr. Roosevelt's letter, which said the amendment would "cripple any President in his conduct ot our foreign relations." Recalling that sponsors believed it would help keep the United States out of war, the President said he was "convinced it would have the opposite effect." Many members considered that the President's letter and personal appeals by Bankhead and Majotiry Leader Rayburn of Texas carried considerable weight with the members when the roll was called on the question of bringing the Lutllow resolution to the floor. The tally showed that 21 Re- ROOSEVELT TAKES UP NAYYPROGRAM Navy and State Dep't Officials Confer with President Bodies of Victims of Crash Located Buenos Aires, Jan. 10 (/p) —The bodies of tfduardo Jnsto, son of President Agnstin P. .Tiisto of Argentina, and eight others aboard an Argentine army plane which crashed yesterday in a remote section of northern Uruguay were found today.

"The Argentine plane was completely destroyed," he messaged. "The bodies were unrecognizable."

One hundred and eleven Democrats, 64 Republicans, eight Progressives and five Parmer- Lahorites voted for the resolution. The Council for War Prevention announced, without elaboration, that the people would have another chance this year to "make their will known and elect representatives who will respond to the voice of the people and not to the crack of the Adminitration's whip." Before reading the President's letter, Bankhead told the House he was unwilling that the members stop trusting the "Chief Executive of the United States who loves , .. i peace as much as any man in the President Roosevelt reviewed the | ' ^ „ piograin with navy and state department officials today. While they to were extremely reluctant' to talk to reporters afterward, Admiral William D. Leahy, chief of naval operations, did say the construction would require new legislation. This was taken to mean that cruisers and aircraft carriers might be in the new program. Under existing legislation, known as the Vinson-Trammell act of 1934, the navy has built to the limit of its authority in carriers and .heavy cruisers. The act, authorizes 17,000 more tons of light cruisers, but these have heen proposed in rte new budget recently sent to Confess. Under the act the navy also hns permission to liulld (but Congress IIRS yet to appropriate for) nine more battleships, 64,000 tons of de. slroyers and 19,000 tons of submarines.
