TWO PREPARE PLANS OF REFINANCING Government Holds RFC Gol Price Unchanged for Fifth Day. WASHINGTON, Dec. 6. (1P~Th 534.01 an ounce government prio for newly mined domestic gold wa posted for the fifth successive ttm today as the treasury polished plan for big mid-December financln operations. The London price for bar gol waa $32.84 an ounce on the basis o an opening sterling quotation o $5.17% to the pound. Whether recent stability o£ th RFC gold quotation was connecte with the newly completed plan to meeting $727,000,000 of Decembe 15 government maturities could no be ascertained officially. To Announce Program. Acting Secretary Morgenthau ha promised to announce the new f nancing program before the wee is out. Treasury officials wei pleased, meanwhile, with, exchang subscriptions received for 10-1 year treasury bonds from holders o fourth libertys. . The exact figure on exchange sub scrlptions which closed last Satur day waa given by the treasury a 5899,899,200. "Exchange subscriptions hav been allotted in full," the treasur said. Hola Subscriptions. "Federal reserve banks hold a fc·. subscriptions not included in th above total because the fourth lib erty loan bonds to be excuange have not yet been cleared. Thes cases will Increase the amount SL lotted on exchange subscriptions t slightly more than $900,000,000. "Over $25,000,000 o£ the new bonds were paid for in fourth, lib erty loan bonds which have not ye been called for redemption." The amount of fourth libertys called by the treasury was $1,875,000,000, but the exchange offer was open to any fourth liberty bone holder. CORN AND HOGS CONTRACT READY (C«n«nned From Page 3) under contract during the two year base period. Half of the 30 cents a bushel payment will be made as soon as possible after acceptance of contracts by Secretary Wallace and the remainder, minus local administrative expenses, on or after Nov. 15, 1934. Hog production payments of $5 a head will be made on 73 per cent of the average number o£ hogs marketed in'the past two year period. Two dollars of this payment will be paid as soon as' possible after the contract is accepted, a second payment of ?1 will be made about Nov. 15, 1934, and the remainder about Feb. 1, 193S. Landlords to Sign. The contract provides that landlords who rent farm land on share will be required to sign with tenant producer under the same stipulations and regulations as the tenants. Upon signing a contract the producer must furnish a report on the production of all crops for the past two years, a. record of ways in which the corn crop was used during that time and a history of crop production on the contracted acreage during the past five years. Wallace said today that Great Britain desires , an increase on the liquor quota allowed to it by the United States and that under a reciprocal agreement a. revision might be. effected of Great Britain's quota on meat imports allowed to the United States, now limited to 6 per cent of England's total meat consumption. TO SPEED PAYMENTS DES MOINES, Dec. G. Iff)--Differing from the wheat and cotton acreage reduction plans, the corn- hog reduction program announced in Washington today will speed up the payment of funds to Iowa farmers. Farmers will not be obliged to wait for first payment until all contracts for a county nre approved. Instead individual contracts can be given a preliminary allotment for approval by the county and state committee before they are forwarded to Washington for payment. The procedure should require a few we«ks instead of having to wait months as in the case of the wheat and cotton plans. Set nt 15 Cents. Initial payment c\ corn land rental has been set at 15 cents a bushel on the average production an acre instead of 20 cents as originally planned. The 5 cents "leeway" in the first installment will aid in later adjustment in case It is discovered . the preliminary allotments resulted in overpayment or underpayment. 'Altogether, the farmer will receive 40 cents a bushel on the average production an acre of the 20 to 30 per cent of his corn land to be retired from production.

Agrees to Reduce. For this benefit the contracto agrees to reduce the number of lit ters for 1934 by 25 per cent of the average for 1932 and 1033 and tc reduce the number of hogs mar keted by 25 per cent of the sam two year average. To prevent possibility of the lam, retired from corn production being turned to other cash crops, the pro visions of the contract state tha such land "shall not be used excep for planting additional permanen pasture; for soil improving anu erosion preventing crops not to be harvested; for resting or fallowing of land; for weed eradication or fo planting farm wood lots." LITTLE FESTIVITY GREETING REPEAL (Continued From Page countries for trade pacts wherebj their spirits and wines might b exchanged for American farm sur pluses. These were but a few of the prob lerns that occupied Washington of ficiala. The states had as many, o more. And from leading prohibl tionlsts came warnings that the fight was not over yet. Battle will Continue. O. G. Chriscgau, executive assis tant to the superintendent of the anti-saloon league, warned that "BO long aa the liquor traffic exists the battle against this intolerable evil will go on." Edwin E. Blake, national secretary of the prohibition party, forecast that national prohibition will ·etura; Dr. Howard Hyde Russell inti-saloon league founder, also promised a fight for regulatory leg- slation. It was this regulatory problem hat caused most difficulty in the tates. Those in which, theoretically t least, the sale of spirits became igal with repeal were Massachu- 3tts, Connecticut, Pennsylvania, rVisconain, Colorado, Arizona, Cali- ornia, Washington, Louisiana, New r ork, Montana, Delaware, Illinois, tndiana, New Jersey, New Mexico, levada, Oregon, Maryland and hode Island. Licenses Were Postponed. In Colorado, for instance, issu- nce of the first retail Uquor II- enses was postponed until today; Visconsln'a first sales were limited; hode Island quickly exhausted its mmediate supply; permit difflcul- ea hindered .the flow In Indiana; .he Washington state legislature still vrested with' the""problem's as did hat in Oregon; bars were polished and polished in Massachusetts while ales permits were issued slowly. Ohio, after ratifying the amendment at 2:43 p. m., yesterday, regained arid because of state law eeding legislative action. Pennsyl- | anla's dry governor, Gifford Pin-' lot, was charged with controlling s state's regulatory machinery, ifter the state convention at 12:50 m., approved the repealing twen- y-firsf amendment. "Utah, number 36 in tha state line- . p at 5:31 p. m., couldn't even have 2 beer until Jan. 1, while Its legls- ature must repeal the state law efore harder liquors become legal. With Restraint, Dignity. In New York, John Barleycorn ame back -but he had restraint and dignity; in California he was ust about as well-behaved; in New ersey, one of the wettest of the wet tatcs. Governor Moore last night eft the state officially dry when 10 vetoed the liquod control bill mssed by the legislature. The legis- ature, later, however, passed the measure over the veto. Nevada, openly wet, was noisy ut orderly; the Carolinas. the only tales go far to reject repeal, took rohibition's death wittiout notice; Centuckians, hailing from one of lie biggest liquor producing states, had lawn keeping their state dry until at least the latter part of 1D35. Little ceremony marked Wash- ng-ton'3 official promulgation of re- j )eal, President Roosevelt and Wll- lam Phillips, acting sescretary of atate, simply signing: the necessary proclamations. That by the presi- lent was necessary to end, on Janu- i ary and July 1, about 5212,000,000 ', n various taxes which are to be re- ilaced by liquor levies. j Realignments Necessary. And Immediately governmental eallgnments were ordered to make he changes needed because a, con- tituttonal amendment was repealed or the first time in the history of he republic. 1 Among those things, the prohlbi- [ ion unit of the justice department! lecame the "alcohol beverage unit;" DECEMBER 6 BRIGELYN NAMES LINDEMAN HEAD Name Written in on Ballot; Ellis Re-Elected Mayor at Wells.

HOUSE VOTES TO END JUDGMENTS (Continued.From Page t) dering 1 their borrowing power as had been thought by some of the legislators. Praised by Sours. This is a good measure, said Representative Sours of Floyd pointing I out that the supreme court can decide the constitutionality. He also added a publication clause to the measure. Those voting against the bill were Grell, Hartman, Johnson and Crouch. Nc-t votin;. or absent were Alesch, Fuelling, Hopp, McCreery, Millhona, Paisley, Feet, Porter, Stansell and Staazel. The house got into a wrangle be- fore it adopted the report'Of the committee named tc Investigate tax refunds. The committee recommended that refunds be limited to gasoline used for agricultural purpose's and pointed out alleged ad vantages which have been taken of the present law. Would Provide Wage. An amendment to the report by Representative Johnson Goode and Alesch continued the committee and would have provided a 510 a diem wage £·*· their work. Representative Doran of Boone and Jensen of Audubon fought the wage suggestion declaring it would set a dangerous precedent. As the matter now stands, the committee is continued but will work for its expenses only. The senate passed without opposition the bill to enable the federal government to purchase land for national forests. Introduced by Senator Chrystal, the bill grants the federal government this right but retains for the state concurrent criminal and civil jurisdiction over the land so purchased. __ ui _ Similar to Florida. Senator Chrystal said his bill was similar to that passed by Florida and other states, and would permit Iowa to share in a federal appropriation of $25,000,000 for the purchase of such land, $£,000,000 to be used for lands west of the. Mississippi river. Chrystal said the opportunity would mean much to Iowa and that lands. particularly in southeastern Iowa and along the river in northeast and northwest Iowa were sites for such national forests. iV bill which would have increased the mileage allowance of Jion- salaried members of the board of conservation and fish and game commission from 5 to 7«.A cents a mile for the use of privately owned cars went down to prompt defeat in the upper house by a 12 to 34 vote. Favor Bigger Allowance. Some of these who spoke in opposition to the bill said they favored making a greater allowance to such joard members for their expenses, ut they opposed any reopening of .he mileage question which was so horoughly debated at the last -regular session. Another bill sponsored by Chrya-1 tal to allow towns as well as cities to extend funds for the purchase of land for state parks was passet without opposition. At the request of Senator Anderson the senate deferred action on his bill which in its original form would have prohibited inquiry into the religious affiliations of applicants for teaching and public positions. Four New Bills. Among the four new bills introduced in the senate by committees today was one by the committee on county and township affairs which would authorize the construction oi two additional police radio broadcasting- units, one in northeastern and othe other vn northwestern Iowa, and provide an appropriation of $15,000 for this purpose. By a vote of 98 to 0, the house passed the Fuester-McKinnon- Stimpson-Treimer concurrent resolution memorializing the president and Secretary of Agriculture Wallace to place meat packers under federal license and supervision, which was declared needed to prevent them passing the processing tax to the producer. Defeat Dole Bill. While the house debated the bill of Representative Dole of Jefferson which would give municipalities the right to regulate rates and service on telephone companies, the senate by a vote of 39 to 8 passed the bill of Senator Doae requiring telephone -.ompanies to provide Interconnections. Debate on the Dole measure was halted when Representative Lookingbill of Story moved adjournment until 9 a. m. tomorrow. · Two bills were introduced in the house-by the labor committee. One would abolish the fees allowed employment ag-encies when they obtained a position for a professional man operating under a state license. The other would make a flat annual fee of $50 for all employment agencies. The present fees vary from 55 to 550 based on the size of the city. Prohibit Contracts. A bill by the insurance commit- e» would prohibit insurance companies entering into a reinsurance contract from taking any of its securities on deposit with the state insurance commissioner out oC his hands until lie hail approved the reinsurance contract. The Interim tax committee tax revision bill, senate file No. 1, today was voted out of the committee for passage without major change, Senator George Patterson tR.l ot Burt, chairman of the committee, said. Vofe Not Given. The committee vote was not announced, but it was reported that there was only one dissenting vote. Members of the committee said that they felt the matters in dispute would have to be fought out on the floor of the senate anyway. The bill provides a personal net income tax of 1 to 5 per cent, a corporation net income tax of 2 per cent, and a. retail sales tax of 2 per cent. Senator Frank C. By era, (R.) of' Cedar Rapids, said that he will move for consideration of the bill Thursday. The committee completed its study of the 'bill late Tuesday. Reported for Passage. The house committee on emergency legislation today reported for passage a virtual mortgage mora- lorium bill, advocated by the administration and sponsored by Representatives McKinnon, F u e s t e r , Slesch and Zlystra. Under its provisions no defendant in a realty mortgage foreclosure action need answer before March 1, 1933 unless Jie plaintiff can show undue waste. The bill also provides that upon request of either party to the mortgage, the court may direct appoint- nent of an arbitration committee of three members to allocate the income from the property.
