MACDONALD TO HEAD BRITISH DELEGATION ;- : LONDON, Jan. 24. (A. P.)—President-elect Roosevelt's Intention to reserve to himself the flnul authority for Anglo-American debt negotiations added weight today to reports that Prenller MacDonald himself will head the British deltpntlon to Washington. The Dally Mall said: "It wag regarded In official circles as almdst certain that Mr. MncDanald 'will hend .the British mission and he Is expoetPd to leave toward th* end of February, Accompanied by Neville Chamberlain (chancellor of the exchequer) and Walter Runclman (president of the board of trade)" As head of the national government Mr. MacDonald was expected to And It even more desirable to lead the British mission since Mr. Roosevelt Indicated he will be active personally In the dealings. Announcement of a movement to have the projected world economic conference meet at Washington found various objection* today, although the proportion was still enthusiastically dls- cussed. It was not considered likely that Great Britain, or particularly Premier MacDonald, .would agreo to transferring the main conference to Washlng- ' ton after the lengthy preparations which Jiave been made for Its assemblage In London this spring or summer. It was suggested, however, that the war debts parley may be combined with a preliminary conference since the Roosevelt-Hoover communique last week recommended a general dls- cusslon of the world situation. The American government, however, stressed separate negotiations with European debtors. ROOSEVELT AND BARUCH CONFER WARM SPRINGS, Ga., Jan. 24 (A.

Tho county recently authorized Installation of radio receiving sets In automobiles employed by tho .sheriff* office. The police system will not broadcast much beyond the city limits and radio sets on sheriff's cars would be useless under the present arrangements. Sheriff Walaer asked that the police system be Improved until It is capable of sending'messages at least 00 miles.

Cabinet Diseustloni Meanwhile, after a long talk with the Senate Republican and Democratic liberals over some of his cabinet Idenu, there was a belief that Mr. I Roosevelt was again looking about for the secretary, of state who he is going to use as his right hand man in the foreign negotiations. Owen D. Young, New York financier and authority on the European •financial situation which • ho once helped "to adjust In the settlement of German reparations, is believed still •in the running but with a cloud of doubt. The liberals strongly oppose him. Because of the fact that the president-elect last night told newspaper * men no man "prominently fconsldered" for the cabinet had been opposed by the party Independents there is some speculation that he may be looking elsewhere than Young and Norman H.
