(AP.) Act ing swiftly, President Roosevelt signed today the controversial bill continuing his power to change the gold content of the dollar and to operate a $2,000,000,000 fund to keep currency relationships stable on the world money markets. The measure was finally passed by Congress yesterday and reached the White House only today. The two monetary powers had expired last Friday midnight because of a filibuster In the Senate. Because the powers had died, some legislators Insisted that they cou'.d not be revived by the legislation enacted today, but Administration men disagreed. Moreover, Secretary of the Treasury Morgenthau said he could no way the law could be attacked In the courts. Republican critics Indicated they had no plans to attack it there, but that the issue would be threshed out in the next presidential campaign. To Buy Domestic Silver. After the signing of the bill, the Treasury prepared to buy newly- mined domestic silver at 71 11 cents nn ounce. This price, contrasting with the old prl-e of C4 64 cents. was put into the bill after a drive by western silvcrttcs. No action to change the gold value of the dollar was Ir prospect. Admini'.tratloti officials live said they wanted this au' horny only as a rsene for emergency.

Naval Aviation Cadet Sets Soaring Record Elmira, N. Y., July 6. (AP.) Naval Aviation Cadet Robert M. Stanley's Independence Day glider flight to 17.264 feet above point of release was officially declared a new American altitude soaring record today. Dr. Karl O. Lange, government meteorologist, announced that calibration of Stanley's instruments mealed he flew 10,564 feet higher than did Richard du-Pont of Wilmington, Del., in setting the previous record in 1938. The world altitude record for gliders is more than 24.000 feet, achieved by Captain Dreschcl of the German airlines during a German national soaring contest last year. Stanley made his record flight July-4, when he climbed through a hailstorm in the center of a towering cumulus cloud. A week earlier he had reached 13,400 feet above point of release in a turbulent ascension up the core of a thunder cloud. Democratic Row Flares At Session IJailcy-Odium Factional Dispute Arises in Picking Delegates to County Convention Today The factional fight between Attorneys John M. Bailey and Frank J. Odium flared Thursday night again as the Young Democratic Club of Hartford selected 24 delegates to attend the county convention beginning this evening at the Hotel Burrltt In New Britain. Before some of the Bailey followers had arrived at the meeting In the Hotel Garde, members of the local club had voted to empower the president of the club, Unemployment Compensation Commissioner Odium, to select the dele gates to the convention. Later, however, this vote was rescinded, and a commute of three was named lo pick the representative of the Hartford oiganilatlon. Revocation of the original vote was taken In the fire of complaints by Odliiinitcs that by !'s action the club was "rclifciiiig oa the integrity of the prr.iJcin." and staoping to personalities.

Cast-if.cd Aiv?rUmt n' Ultimatum Ignored In WPAProtest Walkouts Spreading in Spite of Washington Warning That Rule Cannot Re Changed Given Five Days To GoTo Work From 25,000 to 30,000 Skilled Workers in Ruilding Trades Quit in New York BY ASSOCIATED PRESS. Additional thousands throughout the country, though confronted with a "take it or leave It" ultimatum from Washington, quit their WPA Jobs yesterday in protest against extension of their working hours under the new Federal relief act. Local construction union leaders, miffed by abondonment of the "prevailing wage" principle for paying skilled WPA laborers, began voting official strike sanctions for the spontaneous walkouts, and broader national action was contemplated by the AFL. in Washington. Numerous workers, on the other hand, heeded Washington's genera! warning that they had only five days to return to work or b fired, and they took up their tools again. To Reduce Rolls. Administrators of the WPA. meanwhile, prepared to make considerable reductions in relief work rolls on their o-n part to comply with FVderai orders resulting from new legislation. A reduction of 200 000 In last month's WPA payroll of 2.COO.OO0 has been ordered for the nation as a whole, and under the new art these employed continuously for IS montlis soon would be laid off temporarily, w.lh Mime cxceptiaiis. While Washington otticlala explained resignedly that the new litu-liour woslung month, again: which -titploycf.s are protesting. as ordered by Congress and couid not be changed, some local relet of!!' lials reinforced Federal work -or qu.t order, with taming thaitlio-e Mho would not accept WPA pj in.sht not. gel home relief.
