United Press Wire Service NO. 44 HEARING BEGINS ON RETAILERS' CODE GRAND JURY Ml ASK H, HOOVER TO ACCEPT SUBPOENA Wants More Facts On , Detroit Bank Troubles DETROIT (U.E) — Former Presi dent Herbert Hoove:- will be re quested to accept a subpoena to testify before the grand jury in vestigating bank failures here, Cir cult Judge Harry B. Keidan and Prosecutor S- Toy decided Tues day. Decision to subpoena the former president came as a result of the repeated testimony of Senator James Couzens, now concluding a three-day appearance before the grand jury, that banks thruout the country were permitted to operate in technical violation of law because of the attitude of the Hoover administration. Originally Couzens charged that the persistent belief of "everyone connected with the Hoover administration that prosperity was just around the corner" led them to permit banks to operate against the letter of the law. Bad Loan; Retained Monday he charged that if the government had forced the first national bank to write off the loans federal bank examiners listed as losses in May 1932 the bank would have been "hopelessly insolvent" "However, you must remember there was a political campaign in progress," he added by way of explanation. Senator couzens was to be subjected to further questioning by Attorney General Patrick H. O'Brien Tuesday. Rev. Fr. Charles E. Coughlin, who became a focal point in bank- Ing difficulties after a series of public denunciations of bankers last spring, was next scheduled to appear. A vicious cycle of continuous loans must be broken and millions repaid to tie banks before depositors can hope for return of their money, Couzens declared Monday from the witness stand at the grand jury investigation of Detroit banks. Millions loaned by the national banks here were classed'as "do.ubt- fuT' loans, "hopelessly Involved" and "dormant" by the senior Michigan senator, in his third day as a witness. The administration winked at these operations which brot the Weds Richest Bachelor ./x arold S. Vanderbilt, below, First National bank $45,000,000 in losses in May 1932, Couzens had indicated earlier. "The * bank would have been hopelessly insolvent if it had been forced to write off the $49,000,00 last May," he explained. Judge Harry B. Keidan then asked the witness why the admin istration had allowed the bank t remain open, under those circum stances. "You must remember," the wit ness replied, "there was a politica campaign on at that time." Reveals Directors Loans "Now I'm going to tell you why depositors cannot get their money right away," Couzens thundered a" a courtroom again crowded in anti cipation of his disclosures. Holditfg in his hands a sheaf o. bank' records, he recounted loans made by the banks to their own officers and to businessmen, in what he termed "this orgy of high finance." "Here is a director of the Guard ian bank whose famil. have $82,000 in past, die loans,' 1 he began. "Who is this man?" Prosecutor Harry T. Toy asked. "Why do you try to put me on the spot " the witness countered explaining that he did not believe it in the "public interest to dis close these names at this time." The senator continued his list of loans, naming among them: A prominent surgeon who borrowed $177,000 from First National and whose loan is hopelessly involved according to the bank examiner. However, a wealthy patient may take care of the loan!

FOR AMES IN HALF Also Passes Garbage Ordifiance As a Rush Measure .The city council ut its regular meeting Monday night virtually cut in half the proposed paving program which it has been considering for several months as a means of creating employment m Ames. Inasmuch as the city has not yet been advised whether the federal government will approve its request for aid In the paving pro gram, no action was taken to get the balance of the program under way. Following receipt of numerous petitions and hearing of objections at the last council meeting, a sur vey of petitions both for and against paving was made in the city engineer's office. This was presented Monday night, and form ed the basis for the council's ac- ion in striking out portions of the substantial program that had been prepared. Streets Struck Out Suggested paving that was struck out of the plans for this year included the following; Chamberlain street. Chamberlain nlace, Hunt street, Hayward avenue, except the first block south of Lincoln way; Northwestern avenue, Ninth to Tenth streets; Tenth street, from Roosevelt to Northwestern avenues; Second street, east of Oak avenue; the alley be- Banking Trend Toward Fewer, Larger Units as Federal Government Prepares to Put Deposit Insurance Into Effect Under New Bank Act STORES EMPI Recovery Price Basis Determined LONDON OLE) — The technical committee of the -world wheat conference Tuesday arrived at its first important agreement, the United Press was reliably informed, when a basis for the "recovery price" was determined. The recovery price, which is the price at which importing countries will begin lowering tariffs, will be based on the composite weighted price index, based on the overage parcel sales of all types of wheat at English ports. Two committees of experts met to lay the foundation for a full conference Wednesday when delegates of 31 producing and importing nations are to reveal instructions :rom their governments that may foretell the vital meeting's fate. Delegates were encouraged by progress made since the confer- mce held its first meeting Monday. A dumping war -was threatened un- ess they reached agreement on a means to raise prices by controlling world wheat production. At the outset the 31 nations rep(Continued on Page Seven) tween Ridgewood and Brookridge avenues, from Sixth to Ninth streets.

Oak avenue to Riverside drive; Hayward avenue, Lincoln way to Chamberlain street;- Storm street, Ash to Welch avenues; Lynn avenue, from Storm street south; Stanton avenue from Storm street south. The city some time ago filed a formal request which has since gone to the Iowa public works administrator, asking for a 30 per cent contribution toward the paving program, to be used to cover deficiency assessments, and also for. a loan under the public works act to carry out the paving program. The loan would be in the form of paving bonds sold to the government at five per cent, taking the place of the former paving certifi- :ates which were given the contractors in payment of the work. Actioa. on this request is pending. It has been reported that the government is first 'considering municipal requests made for the 30 per cent contribution only, and that those asking loans would be taken up later.

WASHINGTON (HE) — Concentration of the nation's banking resources into fewer and larger units was seen Tuesday as the administration worked out plans to put bank deposit insurance into effect on January 1. President Roosevelt's advisers realize that a sound hanking structure must be preserved if the country's recovery program is to be a success and have sought to stamp out the paralyzing stream of banking failures. Treasury and banking statistics showed Tuesday a steady slilft In bank deposits since the war to larger and fewer institutions with a drastic reduction In the number of institutions doing business. The United States has lost more than half of its banking institutions since the all-time Peak of 30,812 in 1921 but actually has increased its bank deposits from ?38, 664. 987, 000' in 1921 to approximately $41,380,047.000 at present. Mergers and liquidations as well as the closing during the March holiday of Institutions not yet reopened caused the decrease in numUer of banking institutions. But the net result was believed in administration circles to have put the entire banking structure on a sounder basis and to have made a contribution toward the prospects of success for the bank deposit insurance plan. Under the 1933 banking act the administration will create the federal deposit Insurance corporation to insure deposits of all federal reserve member banks and of all approved non-member banks up to July 1, 1936. Temporarily from January 1 until July 1, deposits will be insured in full up to $2,500. After July 1, deposits will be insured in full up to $10,000; 75 pej cent from $10,000 to $50,000, and 50 per cent above $.50,000. Most of the guarantee funds will be supplied by the banks themselves and the current trend toward fewer and possibly larger and stronger banks Is looked upon by many observers as assuring the success of the plan. Despite the billions of dollars in credit tied up In the bank closings , and moratoriums of the last .12 years most depositors have fared far better than they would have had they had their money invested- in stocks, bonds. commodities or many other kinds of property which have declined rapidly In price. Including the 565 mutual savings banks, a total of 14,511 banks in the United States are doing a normal business and hold deposits of $41,380.047,000. These deposits can be withdrawn at will and provide strong backing of public purchasing power. The following table shows the relative stability, of the country's bank deposits during the last 12 years despite 'a decline of more than 50 per cent in the number of banks: June Banks Aggregate 30' Open Deposits 1921 30.812 $38,664,987,000 1922 30,389 41,128,352,000 1923 30,178 44,249,524,000 1924 29,348 47,709,028,000 1925 25,841 51,995,059,000 1926 28,146 54,069,257,000 1927 27,061 56,751,307,000 1928 26,213 58,431,061,000 1929 25,330 57.910,641,000 1930 24,079 59,847,195,000 1931 22.071 -56,864,744,000 1932 19,163 45,390,269,000 1933 14,511 41,380,047,000 plan decided upon two weeks ago by providing for municipal garbage collection.

Wis. (U.E>—Recall of Daniel Webster Hoan, who joined the socialists ranks under the late Victor L. Berger, fought his way to the top of city politics and for 17 years has been mayor of Milwaukee, was sought Tuesday. The movement against Mayor Hoan was inaugurated by a group advocating his recall as a means of reducing taxes. Friends of the mayor charge that the recall is led by real estate dealers and speculators whose delinquency in taxes on subdivisions and other holdings is enibarrasing the administration and complicating the city's financial problem. To divert attention from this situation, socialists explain, realtors have directed a drive against the mayor, charging that lit- has refused to lower taxes because he has not trimmed city payrolls beyond a voluntary 10 per cent waiver. Fortney H. Stark, 25-year-old secretary of tho Milwaukee real hoard, Is leader of the recall as a nanrifrlnte npnlnst Hoan. "This recall movement Is tho cul- mination of three years steadfast refusal to adjust the expenditures of the city government to meet declining revenues," Stark told the United Press. He charged that the city and the world at large had been misled by the mayor as to the state of Milwaukee's finances and that trust funds of the city had been used improperly to conceal this condition. Unless the recall is successful. Stark charged, the city will he unable to ps..y Interest and meet its obligations the ffrst of next year.

ATLANTIC COAST Tropical Gale Arises Near Bermuda NEW YORK, <U.E)— Coast guard stations along the Atlantic seaboard massed all available craft Tuesday to save lives and shipping endangered by a tropical gale sweeping up from Bermuda. Storm warnings were up from Cape Hatteras to Boston, A 70- mile gale was forecast. Rain, low visibility and moderate seas menaced -smaller boats. Atlantic City, N. J., felt the early strength of the storm, with a 40-mile wind lushing the coast in that vicinity. Rainfall reached 2.7 -inches for the 24-hour period. Samuel Dietch, U. S. Meterologist there, warned that the wind would increase Tuesday morning. An off-shore wjad;-. was reported at Rock way Point", N. Y.; at dawn, with heavy rain. The coast guard station there doubted if the full fury of the storm would reach so far north. Word from other stations , along the Jersey coast indicated . the storm was abating, or its course was changed more to seaward. Giant combers hammered the shore thruout the night. At South Beach, N. J., several houses were undermined and -,,-ere in danger of toppling into the ocean. A new moon tide sent rollers over many beaches, damaging bulkheads. Seaman called it the heaviest storm tide on the Jersey , coast in years. The gale sweeping in from Bermuda today came on the heels of a dry northester which took toll of at least eight lives, wrecked scores of small boats and periled hundreds of others. More than 200 persons had been rescue* by the coast guard in the last 48 hours.
