He had the nomination sent ! back to committee after it was re; ported with approval about two ! months ago. This was for an inves: tigation of charges by Representa: tty.e McFadden, republican, Pennsyl, yania; that Meyer's appointment I came- thriv Wail street influence.

"The need of our people today u a decrease in the burden of taxes and unemployment; yet they (who include the veterans) are being steadily forced toward higfher tax levels and lessened employment by such acts as this," he said. Terming the legislation of grave importance itself, the president said "of much graver importance is the whole tendency-to open, the federal treasury to a thousand purposes, many admirable in their intentions but in which the proponents fail or do not care to see that with such beginnings many of them insidiously consume more and more of the savings and the labors of our people." "Inaggregate they threaten burdens beyond the ability of our country normally to pay; and, of far higher importance, each of them breaks the barriers of self reliance and self support in our people," he added.

(IF)--Employment of a detective by the committee investigating the State University of Iowa was critized by speakers today as the senate took up the bill to appropriate funds fo the committee. Senator George A. Wilson, Polk asked why it was necessary for the committee to hire a Chicago sleuth at $25 a day, as he said he had read had been done, when there were detectives of equal ability In Iowa that could be procured for about $10 a day. He also said he understood the committee had hired the special investigator of Verne Marshall, Cedar Rapids newspaperman, whose charges against the university administration were the basis for the present investigation. Wilson's remarks were 'made as the senate considered an amendment to the house bill limiting the funds available to the committee to $5.000. Wilson asserted there should be some limit on expenditures if what he read about the committee',1 methods were true. Wilson said the employment of a Chicago investigator or an auditor were insinuations against the ability of state investigators and auditors and ought'not to be permitted. Was Marshall's. "We may read in the morning paper that an auditor hired is the auditor of Verne Marshall,-" Wilson said. Senator H. B. Carroll of Davis county said he had no apology to make for the investigating committee. He explained that A. R. Lapltz, assistant manager of the Burns Detective Agency in Chicago, had been working on the case for weeks and was familiar with its details. In view of this fact, he said, it appeared advisable to employ a man who could start in immediately. "In whose employ was he?" Wilson asked. Answering Wilson, Carroll said Ihe detective formerly had been in the employ of Verne Marshall. He said there was no secret about this. Carroll said he had no idea how much money was necessary for the committee to carry on its investiga- .Son. He said he wanted the bill of such nature that the committee would not be handicapped, however. BULKLEY IN NEED OF GREATER REP (Continued From race 3). ipon what information the bureau if prohibition 'based statements made in a pamphlet widely distrib uted last October extolling prohlbi ion. Consequently it has been impos ible to "get a line on him." Once he served a couple of term n the house of representatives, bu hey say he uttered scarcely a wor then,"either; just sat there like itotun bottle. * * * UEVERTHELESS, there are poll ' tictans who believe the Ohioan must have concealed potentialities which he will reveal at the prope; uncture. In the first place, It is quite a fea' or a democrat to win an Ohio sen atorshlp--not un precedented bu h)ghly creditable From Columbus come intimations that the dryly d e m o c r a t i c George White who was electee governor on the same ticket with Bob, as the democrats' wet senatorial candidate is under the im- presslon that he Senator dragged Bob thru Robert Bulkley with him. As the story is told here however, George is mistaken; it was Bob who dragged him thru, and largely by virtue of his nerve In emphasizing his own wetness in spite of the politically more experienced George s strong abjections. Ohio accounts also represent the senator as an excellent campaign talker--not eloquent, but convincing. Maybe he is wise in keeping quiet until he grows thoroly accustomed to his new surroundings, old-timers agree. » » · THE young Buckeye solon did do 1 one thing to focus attention upon himself when he threw his ballot, along with five of his fellow Jeffersonians, against the administration-inspired famine relief measure, in favor of which leader Joseph T. Robinson of the democratic forces in the senate, had tried to align all his followers, as part of the program to prevent an extra session of congress. . Many senators, even among those who voted for the compromise, hold that this was clever' strategy on Bulkley's part. It placed him In the position of deserting his own leader, to be sure, and on the side of the minority. Nevertheless, it is foreseen that the legislation will prove unpopnlar, and the Ohioan opposed it in first class, liberal company, including such democratic senators as Barkley Connally, Glass, Wheeler and Thomas of Oklahoma; and such progressive republicans 'as Borah, Couzens, Cutting, Prazier, Johnson LaFollette, Norris, Schall, Blaine, Brookhart, Norbeck, Nye and Pine, and tha .farmer-Iaborite, Shipstead » * » \TOW, It so happens that young Senator Bulkley's economic Iberality has been considerably questioned by those who have canvassed him presldentially. Seemingly democratic policy is rolng- to cal! for nt least a moder- ite wet in 1932 and the Ohioan is all ight in that respect, but the candi- date also (without being alarming to big business) must offer a contrast to Mr. Hoover in the latter's supposed friendliness toward the so- called "Interests".--and Senator Bulkley's .Cleveland , law firm is reputed to have an extraordinarily large corporation practice. His vote with legislators like LaFollette, Norris and Wheeler ought to take some of the curse off it, and without necessarily antagonizing big business, for no such Issue was at stake in connection with the famine relief problem. * » * TO FOOT up his assets:* *- Senator Bulkley's geography is ideal, his last autumn's victory was both timely and spectacular, his prohibition stand is as satisfactory as can be expected ' on that most impossible of all issues, he seems astute, at 51 his age is about right, he is a big, fine looking chap and he is said to have a charming wife, by no means a negligible political consideration. But he does need a reputation, and to acquire one, he will have to come out of bis shell sooner or later and say something more. After that it will be easier to estimate him as a democratic presidential prospect. lowan Fatally Jnjured. LE MARS, Feb. 26.

The report will come up for action before the spring recess, it is believed. Engineer Leaps From 9th Floor of Building o PITTSBURGH, Pa., Feb. 26. UP}-J. W.

BLOCK WILL NOT BUY N, Y, WORLD Publisher Withdraws Offer to Employes of Pulitzer Papers. NEW YORK, Feb. 26. UP}--Paul Block, publisher^ announced today he had withdrawn his offer to purchase the New York World newspapers. He made his announcement thru Max D. Steuer, his attorney, who explained that Block not only had decided not to purchase the newspapers for himself but also to withdraw the offer he made to buy them and allow the employes of the Worlds 45 days within which to purchase them without profit to ^himself. Surrogate James A. Foley will decide today whether the will of Joseph Pulitzer may be broken to allow the sale of the newspapers. Block's withdrawal means that the employes who have made a bid for the Worlds must arrange their financing without his assistance.

PuHtzerji; Mr. Steuer said. "Nor did he learifv anything concerning it until !?*£· evening. He has now ascertainc f that Mr. Howard had concluded contract with the trustees of t!, Pulitzer estate and he does not wa 1 to be put in the position of havinj interfered for the purpose of break! ing up an- existing contract. He want in good faith to purchase three papers but he does not in any sense to interfere with contract already concluded." ' Gustave A. Rogers, counsel forE the World employes, announced thalf "despite the withdrawal of Mr Block, the World employes will g.l right ahead with their plan to bu;li the papers. We are convinced tha i . we will be able to scubmit to the surl] I rogate a better offer than Mr. How-Jt* ard's." sf* Funeral Services for Bricelyn Man to Be Held Friday BRICELYN, Minn., Feb. 26.--Funeral services for Ernest Lindemau, who died early Tuesday morning, will be held Friday afternoon.
