WASHINGTON, March 28. UP)-The senate banking committee today discarded the federal reserve board plan submitted by President Roosevelt lor loans to private industry, and substituted a bill offered by Senator Glass (D.-Va.) The committee did not finally approve the Glass bill, however, but will consider it at a meeting Saturday along with the alternate proposal submitted by the Reconstruction Finance corporation.

The money would come from their surplus funds. They also would have the power to make such advances through private banks, with the latter bearing 20 per cent of the risk. Each bank could make loans up to six times its surplus which is estimated would make more than $800,000,000 available for advances. 140 Million Surplus. Senator Glass told the committee the reserve banks would have a total surplus of about $140,000,000 a% ter paying the last installment due next month to the federal deposit insurance corporation.
