m. LOS ANGELES, March 22. VP) $12,600,000 damage suit filed United States district court today echoed the notorious Albert B. Fall; bribery case. The- defendant in the suit is E.

L. Doheny, multi-millionaire California man who allegedly offered a $100,000 bribe to Fall, then secretary the interior, to obtain valuable lease In the Elks Hills naval petroleum reserve in Kern county.

WASHINGTON, March 22. (JP, The genius of Uncle Sam's four famous sleuthing agencies may be bound together and set Jointly on the trail of wrongdoers under plar.s being considered by the Roosevelt administration. This is one of the many angles to be under survey as part of the governmental reorganization pro-1 gram to promote economy and ef'i- uMmn, include the secret service, the justice department's bureau of investigation, the intelligence unit cf the internal revenue bureau, and the postal inspectors. The secret service is charged with protecting the life of the president and his family tnd with preventing counterfeiting of money; the justice agents with general investigative work not covered by other agencies; the revenue intelligence unit, which brought about the downfall of Al Capor.e, with preventing cheating on the government in taxes, and the post office inspectors with getting those who tamper with the mail. The premise of the plan to consolidate these agencies, it was said today, is that much of their work is over-lapping and that by coordinating their functions an even more fearsome bulwark would be offered against the underworld.

No definite pattern has been found yet, however, for the general transportation division to include the interstate commerce commission as a keystone and include regulation of busses, tracks, pipelines, aviation, barge lines, water shipping and, perhaps, highway construction. Other realignments which are known to be under discussion include one to send the bureau of mines to the labor department and the bureau of fisheries to sthe interior department from the commerce department. The latter department is to be sharply curtailed, informed quarters believe, with vir- lileo BABY GRAND The Chas. E. Wells Music Co.

CASPER 112 East Second em "Tj REFINANCING PUNS MAPPED Legislation' Will Submitted Soon Be WASHINGTON, March 22. VP) President Roosevelt soon will send to congress his proposals for refinancing agriculture and home mortgages. Thi3 legislation, which will provide also for reduction in interest rates on mortgages, will be ready for congress by the end of the week. Final details are being perfected, it was disclosed in high quarters today, while congress goes ahead with work on the farm relief bill. The new legislation is contemplated to include both government and private mortgages.

Mr. Roosevelt has two purposes in mind in his proposed credit legislation. First, he wants to unite into one or two agencies the eight federal farm credit organizations now in ex istence. By this he also hopes to put the federal farm loan banks and joint ttock land banks on a sounder and more efficient basis. Secondly, he wants to bring about a real refinancing of the mortgages now borne by farm and home owners.

It was said that the new plan probably would be along the same general lines as the Canadian sys tem. Meanwhile, Mr. Roosevelt has his aides at work on the railroad legislative program and he hopes to go forward with this in about ten days. It was the understanding at the White House that the director of the budget and the veterans' administrator, will give hearings to the representatives of veterans' organizations before drafting all the new regulations to put into effect the reduced compensations just authorized by congress. fRILllLL MARK CHANCE (Continued from Page One) cent alcohol by weight of four per cent by volume.

Levies a federal tax of $5 a barrel of thirty-one gallons. Become effective 15 days after enactment. Leaves all regulation as to distribution to the states. Protects dry states by re-affirming the Webb-Kenyon act preventing interstate shipment into those that have laws prohibiting sale of beverages of more than one-half of one per cent alcoholic content. Provides that brewers must pay an annual federal license fee of $1,000 for each brewery-Continues existing law calling for $30 annual fees for wholesalers and $20 for retailers.

Amends dry laws affecting Hawaii, Alaska and Puerto Rico to permit sale of the 3.2 per cent beer and wine. Makes manufacturers bear the burden of proof that their products do not contain more than 3.2 per cent alcohol. Reaffirms Volstead act penalties on violators of provisions including the forfeiture of license. Permits advertising by radio, newspapers and other publications. The beer and wine may be sold in 14 states as soon as legalized: Arizona, California, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Missouri, Montana, Nevada, New Jersey, New York, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Washington and Wisconsin.

Three other states permit beer to be sold after a specified time: North Dakota. July 1 West Virginia May 9, and Wyoming, May 18. STAVE MHXS ARE ACTIVE. FAYETTEVILLE, March 22. (P) A demand for staves for beer kegs has caused a boom in the timber business in the northwest Arkansas Ozarks and given employment to farmers and mill workers in communities where stave mills are virtually the only active industry.

The staves are going out of the state, as Arkansas bone dry law, will prevent the manufacture and sale of beer within its borders. The staves are made from mountain white oak. SPEEDV DELIVERY WILL BE MADE. WASHINGTON, March 22. (JP) Using your imagination, here is a picture you might visualize on the night of April 6, as interpreted today by Dr.

James M. Doran, commissioner of industrial alcohol. 11:50 p. Strings of trucks, fully loaded, lined up on the premises of breweries in states where sale of beer will become legal. 11:55 p.

Drivers climb to their places and start the motors while inspectors of the bureau of industrial alcohol stand by with watch in hand. Midnight: The trucks shoot out the city, first to the downtown restaurants, carrying the newly legalized beverage to those places that have arranged to stay open to welcome the re-entry of beer. This picture was portrayed by the man who is charged with regulation of the brew as he worked busily at his desk to make possible the sale the moment it is legalized. While the beer bill became law today with the signature of President Roosevelt, it does not become effective until expiration cf 15 days after enactment. This, as Interpreted by Dr.

Doran, means midnight April 6. But while the brew can not leave the premises until then, the bottling will begin immediately and enterprising brewers will be ready to speed their product out to any one who might be waiting up for the occasion.

firi Willi NEW YORK By JAMES McMULLIN EUROPE. The best-informed ob servers here say that MacDonald's visit to Italy was more of a rash job than surface reports indicate. The objective is seen as a ratber desperate effort to dissuade Mussolini from going along with Hitler. The mission is expected to prove futile. New York is watching the European situation very attentively.

This i the way it is sized up in hifh quarters: The powder keg is all set for an explosion. The Polish Corridor is the most likely fuse, although friction between Italy and l'ugo-Slavia could also set off the first spark. Mussolini's strategic position makes him the virtual master of Europe's immediate destiny. France is not anxious for trouble but her relations with the Little En tente may get her in up to the ears. Nazi militancy is expected to grow.

Only the strongest and most skillful joint effort by England and France can avert a war. A by-product of the situation will probably be a vigorous effort on France's part to regain American good will. She may need it before long. That will be the prime motive for payment of the December debt installment if it is made. SCHACHT.

Schacht's appoint ment as head of the reichstag to replace Luther was forecast in this column more than a month ago. This does not imply German domestic inflation nor good news for Germany's foreign creditors. Don't be surprised if a general moratorium is declared on all of Germany's private debts possibly with the reservation that payments may be made into blocked mark accounts which cannot be taken out of Germany. Several New York banks will then five an imitation of a chorus in a Greek tragedy. FEDERAL RESERVE.

Albert Wiggin's resignation as a director of the Federal Reserve bank of New York was not as surprising as reports make out. Mr. Wiggin is expected to remain in Europe for some time. His resignation as a director of the Chase bank is expected in the near future. Those familiar with his plans Bay that he may shortly take an extend ed Mediterranean cruise.

Athens is particularly attractive in spring. Insiders will tell you that this is only the beginning of a shakeup among the New York Federal Re serve directors. This will be in addition to changes that will be made in the federal reserve board itself. Senator Glass is said to blame the policies of the New York bank for the failure of the federal reserve system to function as planned. His opinion carries weight.

BONDS. The only inflation in from the New York viewpoint will be via the federal credit route. There seem to be extensive possibilities in that direction. From the bankers angle the government has made its obligations the virtual equivalent of cash and there will be a ripe and ready market now for practically anything the treasury chooses to offer. The implied taboo on long-term bonds is off since the banks became the treasury's affiliates.

Any excess reserves that may accumulate in the near future will doubtless be used Immediately to buy governments. This change In the status of federal securities is expected to give a much firmer tone to the whole field of first-grade bonds. Higher bond prices will mean the re-opening of more banks. This In turn should have an influence through the further period of readjustments. FARM BILL.

There is head-shaking in financial quarters over the proposed farm relief legislation but no one is voicing opposition out loud. It is referred to privately as "Wallace's tonic for tired tillers everything in it but the kitchen stove." The main criticism of it Is that it won't work. BIT. Loan sharks made a business of discounting savings bank pass books for depositors hard-pressed for cash. "Discounts" ran to 50 per cent or more of the deposits.

Now the savings banks refuse to pay out on passbooks unless presented by the original depositor and if all the wringing of hands could be harnessed we wouldn't need Muscle Shoals.

(JP)-Repatriation of 13,000 Mexican rest dents of Colorado and Wyoming within the last three years, Y.

Vasquez, Denver Mexican consul believes, has solved through international cooperation one of the most serious unemployment problems in the west. "Of the 13,000 Mexican citizens who have returned to Mexico from Colorado end Wyoming since January, 1930," Vasquez said, "the majority have returned voluntarily at their own expense, some of them in their own automobiles. These numbered about 9,000."
