MITTEEfOR18IH ,• (Associated Press Leased Wire) L EMARS, Iowa, Jan. 6.-^-Recalcitrant farmers harked back to the period of reconstruction after a clvJI war today In their quest of legal power to prevent mortgage foreclosures. And It was Judge C. W. Pitts, whom they held In Plymouth county courthouse while they vainly sought to prevent a foreclosure sale yesterday, who suggested the plan of relief. In effect It calls for ( a moratorium on farm mortgages. Judge Pitt referred to a statute held constitutional in Kentucky during the trying times that followed the Civil War. The statute deprived courts of their power to sign mortgage f ore- closure v decrees on farm property where a cash judgment -was sought. * ' * * - . • T , * . - t The Jurist announced he had written Governor-elect Clyde L. ; Herring st the request of the farmers and recommended that • similar statute be enacted by the* Iowa Legislature which convenes Monday. ^ Suggestion-Of the statute followed a demonstration at the courthouse by 600 farmers who demanded that the •, judge refuse to sign foreclosure <3o- * > crees.

Johnson to the New York -Life Insurance Company, which submitted a $30,. 000 bid or 3000 less than the amount of the mortgage^ the farmers thrsatsned to lynch Her- .bsrt 8. Martin, representative of the Insurance company. i The farm was sold, however, when hls : company gave Martin 'telegraphic permission to raise the bid to the amount of the mortgage. Judge Pitts, restrained by the farmers In the courthouse from telephoning for aid, explained that the law set forth his duty, .and that ho was compelled to sign such decrees;' V. WASHINGTON, Jan. B.—The House expenditure committee today adopted a resolution disapproving President Hooverta regrouping recommendations, The disapproval cleared the way for a vote on the' resolution In the House and ltd adoption there has been predicted by Home House leaders. They regard action by one House as suffl-, clent to shelve -the President's .program. . .The resolution-approved by the expenditures committee, was Introduced by Its chairman, Representative Cochran, Democrat, Missouri. Briefly worded^ It said: "The several executive orders grouping, co-ordinat- ing and consolidating certain executive and administrative agencies of the government, set forth in the message of tho President to the Congress, dated December 9, 1932, are hereby disapproved.*' Mr. Hoover outlined transfers ant) realignments affecting D8 government agencies. . > A factor In Democratic opposition to President Hoover's recommendations has. been the belief that regrouping should be left to the incoming administration. A move Is under way to extend • President-elect Roosevelt's 1 authority to the point where action by both Houses of Congress would be necessary to block any changes he advocates. lw u _ WENT REPEAL Roosevelt Economy Plans WASHINGTON, 'Jan.

I got my finger nails into his wrists and he dropped the gun', but picked it up again and hit me over tho head." In the free-for-all, her husband was being chibbed by Stlnes, according to Mrs. Dooley, whereupon she hurled a rock at Stlnea, hitting him In the leg. "He aimed the gun at mo again, but I knew it was no longer loaded." Mr. Scott at this period showed her a single-barrel shotgun 1 which she Identified. It was introduced as 'evidence.
