Control by Codes. The Roosevelt administration has committed itself to the principle of federal control by means of codes under the agricultural adjustment act. As though envisaging a swini? back of the repeal tld« and getting ready to cope wit it, administration lieutenants have given the distilling and related industries far lesa leeway than optimists in their ranks had hoped for--and have given the impressioi that there wll he no important relaxations. As on yesterday, President Roose velt today looked to his cabinet triumvirate o£ Secretaries Moreen thau and Wallace and Attornev Genera! Cummings for assurances of official adjustment to the new amendment with a minimum of un settlement and unpreparedness. n. He , ^ ad the dut y o£ Proclaiming the date of repeal, with the accom panying eventual effect of replacing certain federal taxes of over $210 000,000 a year with increased levie on liquor to make up that sum.

Postpone Trials of 5 Other Defendants in "Scottsboro APPROVE ROAD BOND REFUNDING (Continued fraca P»je 1) Funds available, he said, would thus be about $1,200,000 a year short of the amount required. Slump In Receipts. He explained that the 1933 receipts of the primary road fund, from motor license fees and the gasoline tax were 514,887,000, or a slump of about 7% per cent. Maintenance costs on the primary road system average about $3,300,000 a year, he said. White said the purposes of the bill were as follows: To spread the payment of the primary road bonds out over a little longer period of time and make the total amount required a year for this purpose substantially uniform at about $8,000,000 a year so aa to keep well within the funds estimated to be available for bond and interest payments. Make all primary road funds in excess of maintenance costs available for the pavement of bonds and interest. Remove Limitation. Remove the area limitation which prevents the payment of bonds in certain counties, even though there might be funds available for that purpos-3. The highway engineer said the effect of the bill would be to put the payment of primary road bonds on an orderly basis; guarantee Insofar as possible, against the property tax to pay primary road bonds; make about $3,587,000 a year available for matching: federal road aid or for construction work; avoid the certainty of a property tax in certain counties where the area limitation of the present law will not permit the paym-snt event of interest, let along maturing principle of primary road bonds. The senate was told that the bills would prolong the payment of the last bonds only one year as the last bond nov matures in 1949 and un- uer the bill it is contemplated that the last bond would mature in 1950. Sponsors Presentation. Senator Booth sponsored the presentation of the bill and Introduced White who answered questions raised by members of the senate. Senator Beardsley of Warren con:ended that the program assumed :hat the income would stay down and said that he felt the proposal fo. this reason was trying to "cross a bridge before we come to !t." Booth, however, asserted that the plan would in effect "build a bridge as we come to it." It should be passed now to take care of the deficiency in revenues and assure that there will be no property tax." · Cannot Meet Interest. In the discussion White said that there are some counties in the state which cannot even meet interest on their bonds and mentioned Scott and Dubuque.-'.as counties which have been notified to levy a property tax for .this purpose. The bill, he said, would take care of this situation and would help out other counties of the state and safeguard against a levy on property. Voting against the bill on final passage were Senator Beardsley, Elthon, McArthur, Miller of Buchan; . Miller of Jones and Ritchie. The senate adjourned for the day to take up committee work. PRICE FOR GOLD AT SAME FIGURE Strong Dollar Abroad and Firm Bond Market Fails to Cause Boost. WASHINGTON, Dec. 5. UP)--A strong dollar abroad and a firm government bond market failed to prompt a new boost in the RFC's gold price today and the three day old figure of $34.01 an ounce was set a fourth time. It was the first quotation named for newly mined domestic gold since President Roosevelt reached the white house yesterday from a two week vacation at Warm Springs, Ga. During his absence, the gold price advanced 45 cents. The $34.01 offer represents the highest figure yet quoted. The price never has been decreased since gold Buying began, though on occasion it has remained stationary for several days. London's price for bar gold today was $32.16 on the basis of sterling opening at $5.12% to the pound This represented a weakening of the dollar from yesterday's official close of $5.03% but during opening trading it began to strengthen again.

Lindbergh planned today to take off at midnight on a projected flight to South America, 1,900 miles away.

IOWANS CAN GET ONLY 3,2 BEER 16 States Put Hard Liquor on Sale but Hawkeye Law Not Ready. DBS -MOINES, Dec. S. JP--Let drinkers of Iowa may quaff only 3 2 beer, although 16 states may lawfully sell hard liquor for the first time in 13 years. Although repeal of the eighteenth amendment is effective todav Iowa's legislature ha s not yet acted to provide for sale of liquor In this state and may not do so until early next month. Statehouse commentators are of the opinion liquor will not be available in Iowa under government supervision until the latter part of January. Some held, however, that liquor control legislation could be enacted before Christmas and that a few cities might be able to dispense beverage by New Year's day. Until then, however, citizens desiring to drink legally will have to journey across the border to Illinois or Wisconsin. Except in Chicago, Bale is unrestricted In Illinois and will remain so until the legislature has drafted a control law. Sale likewise ia unrestricted In Wisconsin. No provision has been made-for sale in Nebraska. The Missouri legislature may act soon to set up some plan of dispensing liquor.
