MURDOCK INTO RACE Topeka, Feb. 6 (APJ—The legislature reconvened today with Icfid- ers confident the senate would place its final stamp of approval on the 50 per cent cut in motor car license fees and thereby clear the way for consideration of some of the other major questions .confronting the lawmakers. The senate.had agreed to take up the house license tag bill at 3 p. m. as a special order of business. If it accepts the house bill, and leaders of both parties have predicted it will, the senate will need to change its position slightly on truck license fees. The house voted greater cuts for light trucks than did the seriate in a bill it passed earlier in the session. AdminLstration leaders have said the 50 per cent cut in passenger automobiles will save motorists 2 milllon^dollars a year. Under the house bill, the minimum fee w;ould be $4 with 25 cents added for each 100 pounds or major fraction thereof a vehicle weighs In excess of one ton. Income tax legislation and' proposals designed to eliminate "Ijoot- legging" of gasoline in evasion of the state 3-ccnt tax loomed as subjects to be taken up by the lawmakers. Ahead of them, however, the house will consider the first of the major aj)proprIatIon bills, the charitable institutions measure, calling for a slash of more than $600,000 in biennial allowances. Affairs of the state highway department, aired at length in debate on the license tag legislation, likely will regain attention in the senate soon after it disposes of the motor vthicle'ifee bill. Senator Bradney (R) of Columbus said he would seek consideration early in the week of his resolution calling for a legislative investigation of the department by a bi-partisan commission. Various proposals for departmental consolidations.- salary reductions and other governmental economies are being whipped into shape, by committees, administration leaders and individuals as the biennial session enters Its fifth week.

National Republican League, With Vice-President Curtis As Its Head, Formed' With Ultimate Aim of Regaining Control of Congress and the White House. Washington, Feb. 6. (AP)—A National Republican league, headed by Vice-President CurtU, has been formed to attempt restoration of the G. O. P. from the tremendous drub^ bing the voters gave it last November. The new organization, armoimced last night by John A. Campbell, of White Plains. New York, who will be Its director. Is desigiied to carry on a vigorous campaign for a comeback not only in the 1936 presidential election, but in next year's con- gre.ssIonal races also. It is professedly neither for nor against the interests of any one candidate. What has been disclosed of its makeup so far is strictly regular Republican. •Under Curtis as chairman, three vice-chairmen have been named: Senators Felix Hebert of Rhode Island, and Daniel O. Hastings of Delaware, and former Representative John Q. Tilson of Connecticut.

M. a resident of lola for 23 years, announced today that; he is OE>ening a> wall praper shop at 219 North Jefferson. It wiU be known as "Antrim's Cash Wall Paper Store." Mr. Antrim has long been known as a wall paper hanger and Interior decorator, and his new business v<>nture will be noted with Interest by his many friends. By the courtesy of the First Christian church, whose dinin? room and kitchen equipment they used, the ladles of the Catholic chtu-ph scn-ed the mid-day meal to the !mcn working on the welfare projects today. Tills completes the c>-cle and the second round will start tomorrow, with I the Methodist ladies serving the meal, to be followed Wednesday by the' United Brethren, Thursday by lihe Christian, Friday by the Presbyterian. Saturday by the Baptist and in turn by the Episcopal, the Christian Science, and Trinity Metriodlst. Tlie'Church of the Nazarenc probably [ will also come Into the list, making ten churches in all participating- in this good work. campaign of "Information" will be Issued, directed especially at the younger voters but not overlooking any of the public. Campbell's announcement pointed orut that some 8 million new voters will come along between now and 1936 and, said: "To a very large degree the future of the Republican party will be in their hands." • Curtis in liis letter accepting the office said: "It has long occurred that some such organization should be jlormed for the education of the youth of the county' in the principles of the Republican party."| I Campbell, the organizer, has worked for the. Republican national committee in its eastern headquarters during the last three presidential campaigns arid in between j has helped the national congressional committee. He said the league; already has eastern headquarters functioning in New York City. : This move Is the first rebiuldlng step in the party since the election, but a general reorganization has been looked for by mariy in the party to come some time after March 4. At the Capitol the Republicans ha\'e been very busy conferring. .Some have been trying to get together to oust Everett Sanders as chairman of the national committee. He was put there by President Hoover. What part Mr. Hoover Is to play In the direction of the Republican party of the future is one of the fundamental questions to be settled. The machine as It stands is largely his but whether it could remain so If he wished to retain control and point for renomination in 1936 has yet to be shown. Washington obsen 'ars have been expecting for some time that the Republicans would, as .soon as'they could got together, borro-s-'a leaf from the Democratic strategj' book, arid start their campaigning way ahead of election season. Tlie present movement differs from the Democratic strategy of the pa .st four years in one respect: it is not officially part of the national committee. The Democratic organization set up an executive commit- VOt^TH TO JAIL FOR MONTH AssaiUt with a Brick Spells Nemesis for Itinerant in tola.

(AP)—David S. Barry, veteran senate, sergeant- at-arms, cited statements of members of congress themselves to the senate judiciary committee today in support of his assertion in.a magazine article that some-senators and representatives take bribes. The committee postponed action on his case, but will continue working on it tomorrow. Appearing volimtarily, the 73- year-old suspended ofQcer, calmly read to the committee a prepared statement citings several suggestions of bribery including one by Senator Glass (D. Va.), in the senate last spring that bankers "hired some congressmen" to opix)se banking legislation. Holding a derby, and cane in his right hand as he sat facing his Inquisitors, Barrj- insisted the purpose of his article was to "proclaim the integrity of congress as a I whole" but asserted it was "a fair inference that there are some men subject at least to influence." Through a cross examination by committeemen, he reiterated his belief that sonie members of congress sell their votes. Do you believe there are any senators or representatives who have or do sell their votes?" Inquired Senator Schuyler (R. Colo.'i I'm bound to believe so when I read the statements of Senators Nye and Glass," Barrj- said. Aside from that have you any knowledge of any senator or representative who has sold his vote?"
