THE BAKERSF1ELD CALIFORN1AN, WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 1, 1933 11 'Cominittee Includes Several /Senators; Will Fight ' * * tor Liberalism < (United Press Leased Wire) : -WASHINGTON, Feb. 1. — Creation •of 'a' bipartisan Senate progressive committee to co-ordinate progressive sentiment throughout tho nation has been" revealed to the United Press by Senator Norrle, Republican, Nebraska, one of the 'veteran liberals who bolted President Hoover In tho 1933 campaign, Congressional' progressives are seeking a more closely knit organlza- i t(bn. . Thi movement, It was explained, hat grown out of a itrong demand 'for continuation of th« progreiilva t , aupport of Pr«ildent-elect ROOM* Effect of Baby on Court V' Jury to Be Decided Here W HETHER a mother nursing her baby.In the corridor of tho court house or the witness room may have had some Influence on jurors during an allenatlon-of-affectlons law suit Is the unusual psychological and legal problem now confronting Superior Judge Erwln W. Owen. The court and attorneys Involved have already stipulated that babies must be fed, but the place for feeding Is the Issue before the court. Attorneys Rowen Irwln and.Norman Main have moved for a new trial In tho suit of John F. Bolins against Leigh F. Barrow In which he asked for $20,000 alleging alienation of his former wife's affection. • Borton' & Petrlnl represented the defendant for whom a verdict was returned Batter a long and Involved trial In the Superior Court here. The testimony was before a Jury. , . < The organisation, If completed, would not be an essentially political group, Rather, It would be on,e designed to give free expression to progressive Ideas. The committee was appointed at a hieetlng called by Senator Norrls. Its members are Senator Cutting, Repub- .llcan, New Mexico, Senator Wheeler, •Democrat, Montana, and Senator La jFollette, Republican, Wisconsin. Both La Follette and Cutting bolted the Republican party In tho 1932 campaign. Norrls explained tho demand for a progressive organization had been consistent since the progressive con» ference he called two years ago. When several prominent "liberals" or "Insurgent Republicans" __ switched to tho Roosevelt-Garner ticket, and a "progressive league" was formed, ho continued, strong support developed In many states. • Since the campaign, Norrls said, ho has been requested not to allow the rather loose campaign organization to vanish. After the case had been concluded and a- verdict returned for the defendant, the 1 plaintiff's attorneys presented affidavits. to bolster their motion for a now trial. They urged that certain of the. jurors may havo been Influenced In the action by having seen the .mother nursing the baby and through conversation. Attorney James Fetrlnl said. In court that no one would expect a Juror to dodge down an alley should he see the mother coming down a street with her baby In order to obviate any possible Influencing of his mental' attitude. Attorney Norman Main countered by saying the Illustration proved his point; that It was proper enough to pans a juror In the street but the corridors of tho courthouse and the witness room were not the place to exhibit a little baby with the posslv blllty of playing on the emotions of jurors. China Purchases 20 Bomb Planes From Fiat, Turin Prem Leased Wire) TURIN, Italy, Feb. 1.—Th« Flat Company Is filling an order for 20 bombing planes for the Nanking government. It was learned that 6 .of them were shipped several daye ago. The order Involves »230,000. The House of Vlcks—famous for Its I various household preparations and plan for better control-of-colds—has Its own way of overcoming depression. Instead of retrenching, It expands. It . employs more people—spends more on Its research division In developing new products, more money for advertising them. This In turn requires the purchase of more raw material, and helps other business In allied lines. Just lately Vlcks Introduced a new product—Vlcks Voratono Antiseptic. In Its production and In preparation for Us marketing, thousands of people were.given new or extra employment. Three weeks ago, 132 carloads of this new mouth wash and gargle went out through wholesale druggists to America'.s 60,000 drug stores. In each carload there was an added slice of prosperity for bottle, makers, cap manufacturers, carton makers, glass and paper mills, printers and engravers— to.say nothing of the various sources of raw materials for the product itself; and the thousands for whom pay envelopes were created or fattened. Nor does all thin take Into account tho $700,000 appropriated for the Vlcks ^Antiseptic introductory advertising campaign—over 85 per cent of which I.s b.elng spent in newspaper space.

BY NEW CHANCELLOR (Continued From Pago Two) Prussian Diet as his followers, In their lubllance over his accession to power, -nay be counted upon to make a aplr- .ted campaign In a new election. Dr. Alfred Hugenberg, minister of economics and agriculture and leader of the Nationalist party which holds the majority of posts In the Hitler cabinet, was less enthusiastic. The Nationalists lost heavily In the recent Llppe state election In which Hitler's National Socialists showed gains. President von Hlndenburg reap- polnted Dr. Franz Guertner, minister of Justice In the Von Papon and Schlelcher cabinets, to the same office In the Hitler cabinet. This completed the Hitler ministry.

Representative Cross, Dem., Texas, explaining his bill to lot the treasury purchase silver and pay for It with sti- ver certificates, said: ^ "This IH a sounder dollar than the present gold certificate dollar because back' of the gold dollar you have but a little gold. In back of this you have u full dollar's worth of silver." Cross said tbe bill would not limit the amount of silver the treasury could purchase because there was In the world only about $11,000,000,000 of silver that could be coined or used for money. If silver were, remonetlzed In the United States, he testified, other nations would want to keep the silver they now have. "This," he continued, "would give us a chance to get the trade of the far east, China and South America. Certainly, we can't look to Europe for trade now, so why not get a monetary base on which we can deal with possible" HENRY FORD SAYS DEPRESSION OVER Declares Period 1923-1929 Were America's Real Tragic Years \ (Continued From Pago One) STOCKS continuing in the office minister. of finance Exalted Rulers of ; Elks to Be Honored Arrangements were perfected for ,t past exalted rulers' night February 14 at last night's meeting of Bakersfleld Lodge No. 266, B.
