TRY TO ADJUST RADIO MEASURE Ten Senate and House Conferee! Have Only Few Hours to Com .- promise Differences . - '. in Bill. WASHINGTON. March 15. (U. P.) The ten senate and house conferees had only a few hours today to adjust differences in the new radio bill which authorizes the fed-eral radio 'commission .to continue - a year longer as the chief administrative authority. -..A Unless legislative action Is completed and the bill is, - signed by President Coolidge by midnight tonight,; administrative authority reverts ; to Secretary : of Commerce Hoover, with - the commission becoming an advisory and appelate ,1 body, as provided la the last radio ' act. . If the bill Is not signed In time, however, it is Hoover's intention to take advantage of provisions, the y present , law which allows him to refer most matters to the commission, in its advisory capacity, .it was explained today. '. Present licenses, If wag pointed out, do not expire until April 1, so that the renewal of licenses will not become necessary for several days. . The commission would be come a sort of court of appeals, in,j ' the changed authority provided y the last act, with appeal to it from the secretary. The situation has been just the reverse for the past year, with right of appeal to the secretary. Provisions of-the radio bill causing most difficulty are those requiring equal allocation of stations, wave-lengths and power within the five radio zones and equitable dis- tribution in the states according to population and the limitation upon licenses. The senate bill fixed six-month licenses, the house three-month., y. , , Portions of the bill, other than the authority provisions' will become effective whenever the legislation is approved.: It Is pointed out also that congress later could pass a separate bill placing authority back in the hands of the commission, tho this has not been considered.. .

Coast nuardsmen who went out to 1 Stratton Island to Investigate wreckage being seen In that locality returned and reported that they found nothing. postpone all political discussion until Monday, when the remaining Turkish and Polish delegates will have arrived. ; . ' Louden welcomed Turkey to what la her first disarmament meeting, and then referred to the Russian disarmament proposals. "We, must . decide," he said, "whether they sufficiently take Into account the actual state of world afTairs and the present state of civilization whether the plan cohi-pletely to abolish armaments, corresponds to present world psychology regarding their reduction." Louden said the security comlms-slon had made great progress. This commission had been delegated to find means of guaranteeing nations against attack, so that they would be willing to disarm. He reviewed the security delegates' decision to prepare model arbitration, conciliation, non-aggression and mutual assistance treaties. These, he said, would open the way at a further security commission meeting in June for extension of xhe means of providing security. New York Stock (Close. . fBv Lamson firos.. A. Go.)
