ASKS TRADE PO By CHARLES T. STEWART . A S H I N GTON, ( C P A ) --The Roosevelt a dm i n i s t r ation and its managers on capitol hill are encountering the usual difficulty i n preventing small groups in congress f r o m forming partnerships to get w h a t t h e y jointly want, in disregard of the general majority's broad policy Divided, these little groups would give the white house no particular headache. United, however, they foot up a formidable total. Just now they threaten trouble in connection with the issue of 'federal taxation of what's known as the "nuisance" character--in effect, sales levies, and everyonr knows how irritating they are even though small per individua collection. An Example Given. Not to be too definite, thercbj starling ah ill natured controversy suppose that: State No. 1 is the country's mam producing area of commodity A which has on it a stiff excise tlia stale No. I would like to get rid of slate No. 23 is the major produce- of commodity Q, which No. 23 i anxious to keep untaxed. Twenty-three doesn't care nickel's worth for No. 1's conccrr as to commodity A, nor No. )a lo 23's worries over commodit But No! 23 will help No. 1, i No. 1 will, help No. 23, and vie ' Applies- to All States.

Of course it is not true that the states combine solidly on every item to defeat levies desired by the administration. If they did there wouldn't be any taxes. But there always is a tendency on the part of two or three or more states lo join forces to get what they want, not collectively, but variously. Let this tendency become rampant and it is enough to knock the fiscal pro- F. R. SAYS NEED OFTRADEPACTS EXTENSION Bitter Cold Claims North lowan's Life lull Urges House Ways and Means Group to Back 3 Year Extension. WASHINGTON, (IPj--President Roosevelt devoted the first congressional dispatch of his second erm Thursday to a request for ,egislalion extending the life of .·eciprocal trade policies. Urging the system, first slarled three years ago, as a means of promoting peace and ;he president wrote recovery, Chairman stuffing gram. out of any Remunerative. Now, federal nuisance taxation has been tolerably remunerative to the United States treasury. To be fairly exact, it has yielded nearly a half billion annually. President Roosevelt deserves it to continue to do so, tor the present, anyway. He does not care for the continuance of any especial tax, but he is exceedingly desirous to maintain the government's total. /- · The existing schedule will lapse on July 31. Consequently the problem of renewing it, in some lashion, is urgent. Committee "AH llighl." First the ways and means committee of the house of representatives will tackle it. With'the ways and means committee, headed by Congressman Robert L. Doughton of North Carolina, as chairman, the administration will have little trouble. The committee members are highly responsible old-timers, in close touch with the white house and Treasury Secretary Morgenthau. Even the republican members are inclined to be reasonable. So far as the committee, then, is concerned, it will report out a bil in a form satisfactory to the president and his financial advisers. Then--Amendments' Then, however, the fun probably will start. No n - committeemen will be powerless to monkey with the committee's plan while the committee is framing it, but the moment it is submitted to the house Ihcy will be privileged lo begin offering amendments to it. Assume that legislators from state No. 7 propose to amend out a tax on commodity L, its particular "hole noire." And that No. 13 proposes to amend out item S. "If you'll vote for our amendment," state 19's spokesmen will say to state 7's, "we'll vote Cor your's." State .7 will agree. Several other states will join the alliance, as to ; as many additional alphabetical commodities. i Sees More Sport. Soon that schedule will look like something that the cat dragged in. After which the senate will have some more sport with it. Next it will gt to conference between the two houses--and what have you? Administration leaders are doing their best, in a preliminary way, to prevent such an epidemic of amendments from breaking put. But heaven knows! Parly lines don't signify much in such a contest. - - Doughton (D., N. Car) ot the nouse ways and- means committee that "liberalization of commercial policies" by the United States had done much lo arrest "the world trend toward, national economic isolation." Asserting the task was by no means finished, Mr. Roosevelt saic "emergency conditions" still exisl in international trade relations and excessive bankers continue to operate against American trade. Hull Asks Passage. Rested by a nigbl's sleep atlei Wednesday's strenuous round o inauguration activities, the president returned to his desk with ; full calendar of engagements confronting him.

Bill on Feed Loans Rushed by Assembly DES MOtNES, (.ft--The Iowa e n a t e rushed consideration 'hursday of a bill permitting drought counties lo make feed oans lo farmers and the house prepared to lake it up later in the day. The upper chamber received be bill early in ils session and sent it lo commiltce for immediate consideration. Along with 'the drought loan 11, the senate received a number of measures. One would pro- libit possession of slot machines except those "used, constructed, and operated for the sole purpose of vending merchandise" or rendering a service. As soon as the drought feed loan bill was introduced it was [ivcn Ils first and second readings. Farmers Without Feed. PERKINS MEETS UNION LEADERS Says Failure to Evacuate Plants Major Obstacle lo Settlement. WASHINGTON, (.I 3 )--Secretary of Labor Perkins called Gov, Frank Murphy of Michigan and leaders of striking automobile workers to her office Thursday. She conferred at length Wednesday with the high command of the General Motors corporation. John L. Lewis, head of the committee for Industrial organization, and Homer Martin, president of the United Automobile Workers were summoned. Murphy was asked to attend. "Principal Barrier." Miss Perkins, seeking peace in the widespread automobile labor conflict, said occupation of Fisher body p l a n t s in Flint, Mich., by sitdown. strikers was the "principal barrier" to resumption of negotiations between General Motors and the Untied Automobile Workers. Before resuming her e f f o r t s to bring corporation officials and Ihc union together. Miss Perkins told reporters that one of the main reasons for the failure of Governor Murphy's proposed negotiations in Detroit to materialize had been swept aside. That reason, she said, was Ihe "Flint alliance episode." Refused to Evacuate. William S. Knudsen, General Motors vice president, notified the Flint alliance--composed of nonunion employes -- Saturday night that he would confer with them Tuesday. The union then refused lo evacuate the Flint plants. Since Monday, Miss Perkins said, the corporation has agreed not to negot'ate with any group other t h a n the auto u n i o n for the lime being. That leaves, she said, the occupation of the Flint p l a n t the "principal barrier" to resumption of. strike settlement negotiations. V. The measure would p e r m i t drought counties lo issue anticipation warrants against an emergency tax levy not lo exceed 550,000 for feed loans to farmers. The loans would be made undei supervision of county boards of supervisors. Sponsors of the bill said thai in some of the stale's drought counties, farmers are without feed or the money to buy it. The judiciary commiltce sidering the bill stayed in session over Ihe lunch hour to draf several-minor amendments, including a possible 3 per cen limit on interest,counties coulc charge farmers. ': House ^ Meets House consideration of a separ ate feed relief measure met a sna over a proposal to amend the bi to insert provision requiring th issuance' of a chatlel mortgage lo counly boards as security for feed loans. Opposing.this move, Rep. Gus- lave Alesch (D) ot Marcus, contended that farmers now needing money hqd morlgaged themselves to the limit. "They have no security left," he held. One other amendment l i m i t i n g the inleresl rate to be paid cm loans" lo not exceed 3',-, per. ceijt, was adopted. During its morning session .the senate passed a resolution authorizing pay for its employes. Flood of Bills. Included in the flood o£ bills introduced in the senate were measures to: Prevent selection of physicians on city hospital boards; prevent telephone companies from lowering prices in single communities to meet competition; prohibit the incorporation of cemetery associations for profit; authorize cities and towns to maintain nurses' homes, and prevent gas and electric companies from making higher charges than stated in franchise ordinances. While the scnale Accessed for a lalf hour lo await the committee ·cport on the emergency drought oan measure, another handful of bills came to the desk, including one to divert two million dollars of liquor commission profits to improvements at state board of con- .rol institutions and one to reduce .he minimum interest rate counties may charge ori loans from the permanent school funds.

Republicans countered with one of their own. Both parties agreed on William Heincckc for assistant chief clerk and Oley Nelson, Ihe Civil war veteran, for sergeant at arms, but varied widely on their choice for other positions. The fight went as far as a call of the house, but a vote was prevented when a republican motion to excuse the absent members, three democrats and a republican, was defeated, lacking the necessary two-thirds majority.
