WASHINGTON. April 11. IUP)— The WcN'ks progress Administration , has abandoned hope of reclining Its | rolls by 550,000 workers before'July , 1. Hit- United Prpss learned today, i A high WPA official said thai these was "little chance", that'thy reduction- to 1,6(30000 workers planned by Administrator -Harry L. llo^kln", cci:ld be accomplished; He intimated that tli2 reduction mi°ht ke less than heir of the amount planned, bringing) the 'rolls to approximately 1,800.000. President Roosevelt may suggest that figure to begin the 1938 fiscal year when he sends his re'icf message to congress next week, it was said. While a marked decrease In WPA employment was expected to starl immediately because of normal seasonal reemployment by industry and agriculture, there was believed to be no chance that the reduc- I tion would approach that of last p- spring, when 150.000 were 'dropped from the rolls. WPA officials Insisted that reductions would be "natural ami depen-j dent on private reemployment." j Fear that private Jobs would riot en re for as many WPA workers as when Hopkins told a congressional committee about his rcdu'c- !I he , Blylhevllle Industrial association today announced an cller . of a two dollar cash prize for the best suggestion as to an Inscription on a cornerstone at the new filce-Stlx factory building now under con- i iiruction here.

A group of New Deal governors, led by Gov. Herbert H. Lehman of New York, the Unites States conference of mayors and the workers' alliance, a relief workers union, all have condemned the proposed reduction.

(UP) —The senate judiciary committee i decided today to end hearings on President floossvelt's court bill in a week or (en days. ' • ' The committee, at an executive session, decided that opponents of the court bill will be permitted to continue testimony as many days I next week as they desire. ' Then if the orooonents wish l!w vill. b- nermitted to present witnesses the first three days of lh« following week. ' Thus the commute? s»t April 28 as the deadline for ending the pub- I lie hearings, although It ™s understood they might be concluded next week If fewer witnesses than actually scheduled are called. The decision was unexpected in view of the desire of a majority of the members of the committee to close hearings immediately but was understood to .have been due to the desire of the administration to avoid possible charges that they were seeking to "gag" the opposition.
