WASHINGTON, Jan. 30. /P-President Roosevelt's request for a $2,249,178,375 appropriation to meet bonus payment costs--a formal business letter which did not mention taxes---was made public today by Speaker Byrns. It went to the speaker's office last night. Byrns said he would refer the letter to the appropriations committee. Chairman Doughton (D., N. Car.) of the ways and means committee, where tax legislation must originate, said he did not see that Mr. Roosevelt's request for funds which he regarded as routine-necessarily meant new tax legislation would be sought. He reiterated it was his disposition to await definite word from the white house or the treasury before doing anything at all on taxes. Text of Lett«r. The text of the president's letter: "I have the honor to transmit herewith for the consideration of congress, for the purpose of carrying out the adjusted compensation act, 1936 supplemental estimates of appropriations for the veterans' ad. ministration, fiscal year 1936 and 1937, $2,242,500,000, and for the treasury department, fiscal years 1936 and 1937, $6,678,375, amounting in all to 52,249,178,375. "The details of these estimates, the necessity therefore, and the reasons for their transmission at this time, are set forth in the letter of the acting director of the bureau of the budget transmitted herewith, with whose comments and observations thereon I concur." Just Regular Procedure. Secretary Morgenthau told his press conference that President Roosevelt's request for the appropriation was simply carrying out "orderly and regular procedure." Morgenthau said the impression had gained ground in some quarters that the president's request was "unusual." "The president simply submitted to congress a request for an appropriation of $2,249,000,000 to fulfill the requirements of the bonus- bill," Morgenthau said. "The bonus bill did not carry any appropriation. It merely stated: "Thee is hereby authorized to be appropriated such sums as may be necessary to carry out the provisions of this act.'" "An authorization is not an appropriation." Still Coughing? No matter how many medicines you have tried for your cough, chest · cold or bronchial irritation, you can get relief now with Creomulsion.

LEOPOLD WILL BE QUESTIONED State's Attorney Claims He and Loeb Privileged at Prison. JOLIET, HI., Jan. 30. tfP)--Nathan Leopold, Jr., who with the slain Richard Loeb, killed Bobby Franks "for a thrill" today faced questioning about the prison life of the pair since their "perfect crime" went awry in 1924. State's Atty. Will R. McCabe of Will county, charging the two wealthy young intellectuals were penitentiary favorites and "trusties' declared he intended to find out how they roamed prison offices. Slashed to Death. Testimony at yesterday's inquest into Loeb's slaying in what the convict called his "private bath' aroused the county prosecutor's wrath. Loeb was slashed to death Tuesday in a fierce battle with James Day, a 23 year old Chicagoan serving time for larceny. Day's quoted statement that Loeb promised to get him an easy clerical job, and that Loeb claimed to have "good connections" in prison increased the clamor for investigation. McCabe admitted he faced a difficult job in his attempt to make Leopold talk. The co-author of the sensational Bobby Franks murder in 1924 declined gravely to testify yesterday before a group of prison officials after the killing. Claims Le.^al Kight. He asked "what is the nature of this inquiry?" insisted that all present identify themselves for the record, and then claimed his legal right to remain silent. The shocking circumstances of Loeb's death, with the killer, Day, blaming persistent abnormal advances by Loeb, already were working a reform. Warden Joseph Ragen said he was investigating the private lives of the *ousands of convicts and would send degenerates to the state prison for the insane at Menard. THEATER OWNERS GIVEN WARNING r rank Wenig Points Out Rectnctions On Seating. The Iowa state bureau of labor has warned theater owners who have resumed "bank night" pro- rrams, recently declared legal by the state supreme court, against violation of building rules and regulations that might result in a theater catastrophe if fire broke out. Labor Commissioner Frank E, Wenig pointed to restrictions ag-ainst seating patrons in temporary seats placed in the aisles or overcrowding lobbies. . "Iowa has been very fortunate in not having a theater catastrophe due to fire or panic," he declared "and all officials and owners of theater buildings should take every precaution to avoid fire and panic and to maintain their exits in such a condition that people may quickly pass to the outside of the building in the event of any immediate necessity for their leaving the building." He said that acting under authority of the Iowa code he has issued the following rules and regulations, revised and approved June 1, 1935 covering the condtions in theaters: "No seats shall be placed in the aisles or persons allowed to stand in aisles or foyers. Persons waiting to enter the building- shall not occupy more than one-half of lobby, thus leaving one-half of lobby clear for exit." He declared that it is the duty of mayors, building commissioners and fire chiefs to inspect theater buildings and to enforce these provisions. RECIPROCITY FOR MINNESOTA-IOWA DRIVERS SOUGHT Requests Made for Iowa Law to Deal With Trucks Operating Here. Reciprocity between Minnesota and Jowa authorities in the matter of issuing truck licenses for out-of- state operators may result from the first traffic school held in Mason City Wednesday evening. Approximately 50 drivers of bakery trucks operating in and out of Mason City jammed the courtroom at the police station to hear Uavc Herrick of the Iowa State Highway patrol discuss laws of the road. Wednesday night's crowd of truck drivers had been invited by Chief of Police Harold Wolfe to al- .end the first session of the school, drivers of iaundry tnicks have been nvited for next week's session. AI- hough the school was instituted mth the idea that traffic violators might work out fines by attending ts sessions, the meetings are also ipen to anyone and several persons nterested in automobiles and traf- 'io were in attendance the first evening. \V'rltc to DCS Moines. Conducted more or less as an open meeting', Mr. Herrick soon found his school in a discussion of the recent- y enacted Minnesota law which compels Iowa truck drivers to purchase Minnesota licenses as well as !owa licenses for trucks operating over the line into Minnesota. Because Iowa has no such law by which patrolmen may require Minnesota drivers operating in Iowa to purchase licenses, it is agreed by drivers attending the meeting to bring the matter to the attention of :he State Department of Motor Vehicles at DCS Moines. All local drivers of tracks who have been required to purchase Minnesota licenses were urged to send a signed statement to the effect to the state department by Saturday o this week to bring the matter to a focus immediately. Traffic Lane Urged. All local bakeries operating trucks were represented Wednesday evening. Discussion of traffic prob iems took up most of the evenu\ with the problems being worked ou on a miniature city with toy auto mobiles, trains and streetcars. Th laws of the road, the placing o flares, the conditions of cars, lights brakes, etc., were all discussed. Mr Herrick stated that he believed ev ery town of any size should have safety lane and that car owner should be required to drive thei cars throug-h the lane at least one in every two months. "If we are cut down the numbe of automobile accidents, we mus have the co-operation of citizens, said Mr. Herrick. "A citizen ca: file information against a traffi violator and 9 times out of 10 citizen's testimony will bring- a con viction if he has his facts correc' It is up to you as drivers and citi zens to insure safety by living u to and enforcing the laws we nave And safety on the highway is be coming- more and more necessary with the increase of traffic." The school was instituted by th Mason City Safety- commission an will be conducted every Wednesda evening at the courtroom of th police station.
