"fintl" deadline only, 48 hours away the ' administration fwpprosbhed a showdown Tuesday on the question of whether it will take punitive action against individuals who hold half a billion dollars of gold in defiance of repeated federal orders. Some observers believed that if only as a face-saving gesture, the government would be forced sooner or later to make good on its threats against hoarders. Attorney General Cummins appeared convinced of the constitutionality of the anti- hoarding orders and is unperturbed over the jibes poked at his department for its months of hesitancy. On the other hand, another high federal official has told the United Press that, "We're not going after gold hoarders." Cummings has set Aug. 17 as the "final" date for gold hoarders to disgorge themselves to avoid prosecution or adverse publicity. Under President Roosevelt's gold embargo (proclamation, individual holdings of I gold money, in excess of $100 are NRA AT STATE MEET Local Committee In New Statement Ames was represented at a meeting of the state NRA board in Des Moines, Monday, by Mrs. Adolph Shane, chairman of the Ames NRA executive committee.

HENRY WALLACE EXPECTS TO GET 50 MILLION FUND Outlines Plan to Dump Wheat Surplus Abroad WASHINGTON. (liE)—A processing tax on hogs may be levied Oo< tober 1, 1933 to provide money for the agricultural adjustment admini-* stration's emergency hog product tion control program, Secretary of Agriculture Wallace said Tuesday; Wallace also announced that if world wheat producing nations re^ fused to cooperate further in reduc*- ing crops, the United States will make subsidized exports." : -The hog processing tax would be only nominal and would use a total maximum of $50,000,000. ' .Wallace said that a tax of about one-half cent per : pound on livd hogs would provide sufficient funds for the proposed emergency program. This does not imply; however, that the levy will be that much, he added. Concerning wheat, Wallace said,' "If the other exporters will notj cooperate, we fortunately do havei the agricultural adjustment act and shall use its full powers to' protect American wheat producers," In such a case, we will make less- reduction in acreage than if other countries were working with us.: We will maintain our wheat pro-! ducers' incomes thru benefit payJ| ments and we will move out of thej country burdening surpluses of wheat." , : , Wallace said this country would? not insist upon European coopera-? tion now but that if the other ex-J porters want it, the United States 1 will accept any reasonable plan* for European cooperation, which ;s ; satisfactory to Canada, Australia, and Argentina.
