The president-elect maintained his attitude, Senator Smith, Democrat, South Carolina, said, thai a farm relief program must, if possible, be enacted at the short session of Congress. Smith, who will bo- come chairman of the Senate agriculture committee next session, conferred with Air. Koosevelt in New York last night. Smith Indicated Roosevelt tras willing, however, to allow his party In the Senate Its own way in seeking a solution to the problem of aiding the farmer. No Action Taken • Smith presented the views of his party leader to the committee. No positive action was taken. The committee preferred to wait until a full explanation of the complicated domestic allotment measure passed by thu House could be placed before It. It adjourned until tomorrow after hearing Smith's report.- Smtth said Mr. Roosevelt had Indicated a willingness to allow cotton .members in the Senate to amend the bill so as to provide whatever form of relief for the cotton farmer they thought most desirable, Just as Mr. Roosevelt curlier had expressed a do- sire to allow farm leaders to draft their own Idea of adequate relief for agriculture. • Insists on Farm Relief "He did insist, however," Smith said, "that before this session is over there should be a farm relief measure enacted."

Paid by Taxpayers By RAYMOND CLAPPER (C*pyrliht. 1933, ky UnlUd Preu) "WASHINGTON, Jan. 17.—Interest on government debt Is eating up a. lion's share of tax money and Is causing increasing talk of possible ways to scale down this load. Of every dollar spent by the government, more than 19 cents goes to pay Interest. The government, like railroads, farm owners, business houses and Individuals, Is bogged down by debt. . Excessive Load Fiscal experts regard this as an excessive load. It is growing each year. Interest charges this year will amount to 1696,000,000. Next year they will Jump to $726,000,000. according to treasury forecasts. This is the largest single item in the budget now except veterans' relief. Cutting this charge down"'will be one of the first problems confronting the Roosevelt administration. Unofficial talk centers around plans for offering new securities at lower interest rates as substitutes for government bonds now out. Patriotic appeals would have to bo made to encourage the public voluntarily to accept a reduction In Interest returns. It is estimated that probably half of the government bonds are held by banks and other large Institutions.' Tho other half Is believed to be In tho hands of small Individual holders. Delicate Problem Great Britain recently converted its debt to a lower rate at a saving of millions pf dollars a year.

Mr. Hoover maintained that by such a tax the government would be able to maintain a stable basis of Income "during 1 the period of depression.' Balanced Budget Needed "One of tho most helpful contributions which the Congress and'this administration could give to the next administration," he said, "would be to enable them to start with .the federal budget in balance and the federa finances In order." The chief executive pointed ou' also a need for refunding at an early date the outstanding high interest bearing Liberty bonds into bonds bearing a lower rate of Interest. He added it was essential, also, that i portion of the government's shor term borrowing should be converted into longer term Issues.
