Y j Tens of Thousands in Great Distress; -1,750,000 Unemployed 9 (United Prow Leased Wire) WASHINGTON, Jan. 4.—Federal relief funds must be made available for NQW York state if "tens of thousands" are not to go without relief this winter, Harry L. Hopkins, chairman of tho state's temporary emergency relief administration, told the Senate manufactures committee today. "In spite of the fact that New York was the first state to supply substantial relief funds and tho fact that cities and counties have mado heroic efforts," Hopkins said, "there will befl tens of thousands without relief unless federal funds aro available." 1,750,000 Idle Ho estimated there wero 1,760.000 unemployed In tho state, representing 1,000,000 families. Of tho BO families, 250,000 are receiving- some form of direct relief. Hopkins estimated that $150,000,000 for public relief had been spent during the past year, In addition to $70,000,000 from other sources, uf which $30,000,000 represented private contributions. Bnmuel A. Goldsmith, executive director of the Jewish Charities of Chicago, estimated the state of Illinois would need $121,000,000 for relief in 1933. Cook county alono would require $107,000,000, he snld. Goldsmith reviewed the serious condition of state and local finances in Illlnoln, and Fattl he felt tho possible taxes which could bo lovled could do llttlo more than pny tho costs of government. Nation Needs $800,000,000 Ho estimated the nation would need about $800,000,000 of federal relief funds this year. Hopkins said New York was upending $8,000,000 a month for relief and should spend $10,000,000 a month for rollet this year. He urged the committee to "explore the possibilities of work relief" us distinguished from home and food re- lie/. Ho said enough largo projects In New Yrtrk state Including parks, roads, playgrounds and waterworks, could bo started In 30 days to put 50,000 men to work. NTH U. S.

KERBY (United Preas Leased Wire) , Jan. 4.—Republican congressional leaders today were determined to try to ditch tho Roosevelt legislative program which they are convinced, the President-elect soon will place before .Congress. They fully expect a "new administration" slato of legislation" to-be agreed upon at the conference In New York City tomorrow between House and Senate De;no- cralH and Mr. Roosevelt. The pro- grom IH expected to Includo provisions for budget balancing, beer and farm Would Upset Program Republicans aro hopeful of upsot- tlhir this program In the short session because of the shaky Democratic House majority, the Inconclusive Democratic-Insurgent Senate alliance, and President Hoover's veto power. They are determined that none of Mr. Roosevelt's proposals'be put Into .effect while the Republican administration remains in office. Republicans aro particularly "bitter on subject of farm relief and the controversial question of budget balancing methods. Opposition Manifest Iwo days in advance of the submia- slcn of the allotment plan of farm relief, and perhaps weeks in advance of the expected fiscal legislation, prominent Republicans have begun the relentless hammering characteristic of an opposition minority. They seem to feel that the real-White House lifts been shifted from Washington to Hyde Park and New York, Roosevtlt Target Roosevelt has become the constant target of Republican attacks. The allotment farm relief plan, formally reported to the House yesterday, was Immediately assailed as "a bll- llon-dollnr sales tax on bread." This was the phrase of Representative Schafer, Republican, Wisconsin, who attacked the incoming- president for "supporting" such a bill yet being quoted, as "horrified" at the suggestion he support a general manufacturers' sales tax. • : Assistant Republican Leader Mlche- ner publicly labeled the bill "the Roosevelt allotment plan." Others followed suit, Indicating a bitter fight with the added intention of placing responsibility for the measure squarely on Mr* Roosevelt's shoulders. Well Shooting Man Hurt in.
