MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, AUGUST 1 1935 THREE 1 MIDGET MONEY BILL IS TABLED House Committee Holds Act Would Give Treasury Too Much Authority. WASHINGTON. Aug. 1. W)--The administration's bill for the coinage of new half cent and mill pieces was tabled by the house coinage committee today on the grounds it would convey too much authority to the treasury. The midget money had been proposed by Secretary Morgenthau to facilitate payment of state sales taxes. President Roosevelt himself had suggested designs for the coins. Chairman Somers (D-N. Y.), of the house committee said a special subcommittee has been appointed to study the matter .further and "if the treasury can show a real need for a particular coin, we shall give the matter more consideration." Somers and his committee objected to the bill because it did not say specifically what coins the treasury could issue, stating simply that new coins of any value between one 'mill and. one cent could be minted." Asked by newsmen if the committee's decision probably meant "we won't have any Chinese coins this session," Somers laughed and nodded. ETHIOPIA SPEEDS UP RECRUITING (Continued From Pago 1) among Italians is one of distinct pessimism." A formal council session, scheduled for late afternoon, was cancelled an hour before it was to be called. The cancellation was interpreted as meaning that more time was necessary to negotiate the difficult situation with Premier Mussolini. Premier Laval immediately called Premier Mussolini by long distance telephone urging him to abandon his opposition to the plan. In Long Conversation. The two premiers held a long conversation. It was understood the French leader called the attention of Italy's chief to the gravity of the situation from the standpoint of the league of nations, Europe and the world. It was said Italy objected particularly to the outstanding provision of the formula, providing virtually for a broad political conference between England, France, Italy and Ethiopia. Italy apparently objected to sitting with Ethiopia on a basis of equality, raising the point that the East African empire was not a party to the 1906 treaty among England, France and Italy, guaranteeing maintenance of the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ethiopia. Chosen as Basis. This treaty was chosen as the basis for proposed negotiations among England, France and Italy for continued peace between Ethiopia and Italy. Reports were current in Geneva circles, however, that a peace conference may eventually be held at Ventimiglia, Italy. Italy was expected to protest against time limits fixed in the draft of the projected peace formula. One deadline was set for Sept. 1, by which time the arbitrators on the Italo-Ethiopian conciliation commission, who would resume their work, would be required to report to the league council. Time Limit Set. Another time limit was set for September 4, when the three powers and Ethiopia would be required to report their findings to the league council. In any event the council would be scheduled to meet Sept. 4. What British representatives called the "British-French formula," it was learned from an authoritative source, made a distinct concession to Mussolini by providing that the ownership of Ualual, scene of a major frontier incident between Italy and Ethiopia, would not be discussed, Italy has been concentrating' its diplomatic fight on this point, opposing the Ethiopian contention that responsibility for the frontier t ne Hudson ex clash could not be established (jay. without first determining the own- When they ership of the spot. To Appoint Fifth. The projected course of action looking to solution of the east African impasse reportedly called for revival of the Italo-Ethiopian commission with appointment of a fifth, neutral member. During the arbitration period, Italy and Ethiopia would pledge themselves not to resort to war. Signatories to the 1906 treaty between England, France and Italy, guaranteeing independence and territorial integrity for Ethiopia, would seek a general solution of the controversy. League sources considered it virtually certain that Mussolini would demand particularly elimination of any reference against resorting to force. They cited a manifesto in the newspaper, n Popolo D'ltalia. attributed to II Duce's pen, that Italy was determined to go ahead: "With Geneva, without Geneva or against Geneva." ASKSlEllENT POST FOR KELLER Hill Recommends Professor as Director of WPA for State. DES MOINES, Aug. 1. W)--L. S. Hill, acting Iowa works progress administrator, today recommended appointment of Prof. George Keller as permanent director of WPA in Iowa. Keller has been acting as adviser to the Des Moinea postmaster, who accepted a temporary appointment as administrator after Harry F. Hopkins, federal administrator, apparently had trouble in choosing someone to direct the work in this state. Hill made his recommendation to Howard S. Hunter, WPA field representative located at Chicago, 111. I. T. Jones Recommended. Hill also recommended I. T. Jones, Des Moines attorney, as assistant administrator, and appointment of several departmental heads. These were: F. J. Harrigan, finance director. A. E. Michel,, projects director. Don Kerlin,' personnel director. Robert E. Hall, labor management director. Jessie Hanthorn, women's work director. Flora Dunlap, intake and certification director. Keller, member of the University of Iowa engineering college staff, formerly was chief engineer for the Iowa emergency relief administration, resigning last spring to return to his duties at the university. Candidate for Congress. Jones was a farm-labor ticket candidate for congress from the sixth district in 1934. At one time he also served as attorney for the defense fund of Oscar Hartzell, Drake estate promoter sentenced to federal prison for using the mails to defraud. Approval of Hill's recommendations will leave him free to return to his postmastership. When he accepted the appointment as acting administrator, he indicated he would not retain the post permanently, since it probably would not pay as much salary as the postoffice job and he could not receive two federal salaries. Keller often was mentioned for the administrator's post prior to Hill's temporary appointment. Two Tubes Beneath Hudson to Be Linked Together on Friday NEW YORK, Aug. 1. (/B--Men like moles will meet tomorrow under one of the world's mightiest rivers.

TAX COLLECTION TO BE CHECKED (Continued From ruse 1) ,ay "provide one of the most suitable means of employment for this roup of trained workers and at the ame time offer a means of obtain- ng information of real public in- erest," Gill said: 'It is particularly necessary that here be no duplication in these surveys, x x x We want to prevent a corps of doorbell ringers making the game calls." Commenting on the income tax checkup, treasury officials said that n recent years revenue agents have ieen able to examine only 350,000 of the 700,000 returns sent them for study. Those examined have been returns of larger taxpayers. Now the small taxpayer will be checked. About 1,000 people will be employed on the new job. Pay for Itself. Insisting that the liquor tax checkup would more than pay for itself in extra collections, officials said sample surveys in 10 large cities had shown "extensive evasions," while "certain stores were being- used as outlets for bootleg liquor." Decentralizing some of the information gathering, the president decided to make St. Louis the headquarters for indexing the 1900 census. From 100 to 500 persons, mostly drawn from Philadelphia relief rolls, will tabulate the replies as to how 280,000 retail business houses found conditions in June of 1933, 1934, and 1935. The study will be made by other relief workers in 17 unnamed large cities and in 258 towns of between 2,500 and 10,000 population. Iowa was allotted $292 for the survey of retail trade. The allotment for income tax investigation included $8,262 for Iowa and Nebraska. A total of $4,446 was allowed for a check of retail liquor dealers in Des Moines.
