The "Progressive" element in the federation desired Subsistence Homesteads Work Begun WASHINGTON (HE) —Secretary of Interior Ickes Thursday announced plans for the government's first subsistence hdmestead project. It will be a demonstration of spreading out industries away from congested metropolitan centers, where working men can live on their own plot of ground and show how the government proposes to meet the employment and re- "ief problems of industries which :annot absorb all of their skilled workers even operating at peak capacities.

Frank X. Martel of the Typographical union set off the fireworks when he declared that "it's time we ceased bowing at the altar of the mighty." "Let's quit thinking that all the brains of this organization are concentrated in a 'holy family' which in reality is just a machine," Martel said. Defends Proposal Peering down at the delegates from beneath his shaggy brows, Lewis vigorously defended the pr% posal to enlarge the council attacking Tobin's intimations that it was a part of a plot to oust •Green and that the United Mine Workers might have a candidate to take his place. "The United Mine Workers have no candidate for the presidency except William Green," Lewis said, and I shall renew that nomination if God gives me strength." Tobin answered Lewis, from the floor and later from the platform and the men were shouting at each other when Green stepped between them and ordered a vote on the proposed resolution. Lewis' proposal was defeated but he rallied a thousand more votes than he was able to gain when his plan was voted down at the Cincinnati convention last year.

The new bonds will run for 10 to 12 years with interest at the rate of 414 per cent for the first year and 3% per cent thereafter. In addition, the treasurv offered $500,000,000 of the new bonds to the public at 101^, proceeds to provide additional working capital for the government. The fourth Liberty loan bonds called for redemption are those bearing the numerals nine or one or naught in the last digit and the distinguishing Utters, J. or K. or A, Holders of these bonds may turn them in to the treasury in exchange for the new bonds bearing a lower rate oS interest or wait until April 15 and receive cash at par. If all the called bondholders accept the government's new refund- Ing bonds, treasury officials pointed out, $18,750.000 would be cut off the interest on the government's $23,050,000,000 public debt, now running about $.700,000,000 a year. Drawing of the called bonds took place Tuesday in the office of Secretary of Treasury Woodin. In the absence of Woodin, Under-Secretary of Treasury Acheson drew one of ^en envelopes from; a glass jar. In it were the numbers of the bon"s to be called. Attending the drawirg were Eugene R. Blacky governor of the Federal Reserve board, William A. Julian, treasurer of the United States and Oliver M. W. Sprague. financial advisor of the United States, who worked out plans for the refunding. The fourth Liberty loan is the highest interest bearing security of the government, the bonds being floated in a huge patriotic drive in October 1918. They are due from 1933 to 1938. The bonds are callable on six months' notice prior to any interest date. The refinancing move is "an important and constructive step in the government's program and an essential contribution to the sound process of recovery," the treasury said.

PAUL (OB—The federal government Thursday marshalled "unlimited funds" to save farm homes from mortgage foreclosure sales. A solemn pledge that no farmer will be sold out without a chance to use Uncle Sam's money for refinancing was made by Henry Morgenthau, jr., governor of the farm credit administration as he speeded organization of two 'new farm credit banks. Within 10 days, he promised, the two new credit agencies will be organized with "unlimited funds" available. Whatever the circumstances, no farmer will be sold out without a hearing first being held, Mor- genthau declared. Morgenthau Thursday began organizing machinery for administering more than $200,000,000 new farm credit for Minnesota, North Dakota, Wisconsin and Michigan-. He conferred with a group of Wisconsin bank officials headed by Leo T. Crowley, chairman of the Wisconsin executive committee, in an effort to reopen several Wisconsin banks, with an Iowa delegation headed by Lieut. Gov. N. G.

The game is called for 2 p. m. rather than at 2:30 as in past years. Already the campus and campus- town are taking on color for the annual game played between the two teams, because it marks the opening of the Big Six campaign for both elevens and because a strong rivalry exists between the Cyclones and Cornhuskers.

As Dictator PHILADELPHIA (U.E) — Plans of the Kakhi Shirts of America to stage an armed march on Washington with the intention of making President. Roosevelt "dictator of America" were frustrated by police raids Thursday. * As a result. Art J. Smith, national commander of the organization, was reported a deserter from his army and 24 of his followers were in jail. The raids were made on the volunteered for service in of the the machine gun company 168th regiment. He went overseas with this organization in October, 1917, on the U. S. S. Grant, and served (Continued on Pagv Two) Khaki Shirts' headquarters after authorities learned of an alleged plot to steal weapons and *mm' tfOfl from 'the third: regim'fet'' oryfor the purpose of 'arming marchers. Forty guns, ammunition, knives, sword canes, blackjacks and other weapons were confiscated in police raids a few hours before the scheduled.:march and after a 24-hour vigil by detectives at th& Khaki Shirts headquarters. g<P Detectives cornered Smith a half hour before a planned raid on the armory was to have taken place. While they questioned him Smith leaped from a window and disappeared. s Three hundred of the "army" were waiting outside for trucks which were to convey them to Washington. > Among those arrested was Col.- Edward J. Wood, 31, who allegedly attacked a detective and ordered his men to repulse the raid. Police earlier disregarded Smith's boast that 1,500,000 men would be en route to Washington before sundown Thursday. But reports of alleged plans to batter down the doors of the armory to obtain weapons prompted mobilization of reserve forces of detectives and bluecoats, armed with machine guns, tear gas and riot guns. An investigation revealed that 100 men were ready to storm the armory. Detectives describing the alleged plot, told a fantastic story. They said the plan was to move concertedly against the Philadelphia Electric company plant, smash the generators and darken the city. Under cover of darkness, shock troops then planned t.c scour the poorer sections of the city, scooting communists and r-tr niting hundreds of men for the Washington march. Hundreds of policemen had been concealed at strategic points along the projected line of march and about the Philadelphia Electric company plant. Entrenched behind emplacements for their machine guns, they were ordered to meet the first sign of attack with bulleto. Film Industry Nervous Over Result of Publicity HOLLYWOOD OT.P)—The film in. dustry was nervous Thursday with fear that a governmental inquiry into salaries might throw a spotlight of publicity on golden secrets which have been hidden during depression days. President Roosevelt, taking cognizance of telegraphic charges, OP- dered an investigation to learn whether fabulous salaries were being paid "immature persons" for comparatively little work. Whether or not the industry feared the direct result of the inquiry, it foresaw trouble thru unfavorable publicity. President Roosevelt's inquiry probably would sustain the following figures, generally accepted la Hollywood: Maurice Chevalier, $150,000 * picture, two pictures a year.
