The resolutions were Introduced by Senator Arthur H.

','An Informal and- cordlal-dlscusalon has served' to outline with greater precision the nature* of the problems. It has not been tho purpose of either of us (Prcaldont Hoover and Prime Minister Laval) to engage In commitments binding our governments, but rather through development of fact, to enable each country to act more effectively in Its own field." Senator Rued hud communicated with Stlmson and Mills after controversy in the Senate with Borah as to whether President Hoover bad sought congressional co-operation for future debt reVlsion before his conference with Laval. Borah's Contention Borah had contended the President had done so and that this encouraged France to hope for further debt -revision. Reed and Senator .Watson, Republican, Indiana, denied the President has taken up. tho question at tho Congressional-White House meeting. Tho Stlmson letter to Reed said In part: "So far as those (Hoover- Laval). discussions touched upon the subject of debts and reparations they were limited entirely to temporary steps which might be taken to offset the effect's of the depression. "No oancelatlon or revision. of either debts or reparations was proposed by either side. No assurances or commltmentH on such subject was either asked for or Riven."

"These proposals to reduce state expenditures and balance the budget at the expense of local taxpayers, comes at a time when affected functions are In greater need of state aid than ever before," hn said. "At a time when local taxpayers are losing their properties > through loss of Income and Inability to meet the enormous Increase In local taxes, it is unthinkable that the state should Impose a further burden upon counties and school districts." Kersey pointed .out that such a step would be manifestly unjust" in view of the fact that, according to reports of the tax research bureau, certain public utllltlcH which pay the cost of state government are "bearing u much lighter loud of taxation than common property owncra."
