TWO MAKE PLANS FOR APRIL FINANCING Treasury Reports Tangible Evidence of Business Improvement. WASHINGTON, April 3. UK--The treasury jotted down plans today for a billion dollars of April financing, and at the same time noted tangible evidences of business improvement. Secretary Morgenthau said the method for retiring the billion m called Fourth Liberty bonds on April 15 would be announced tonight After a talk yesterday with the federal reserve system's open market committee, he added in the same connection: 'The committee seemed to be in a cheerful frame of mind over business conditions." Figures published today from treasury and other quarters threw these Items into relief: L A forecast by the 13 shippers' regional advisory boards that freight loadings for April, May and June would reach 4,376,725 carloads, or 10.7 per cent more than the 3,945,568 carloads for the second quarter of 1933. · 2.

WHEELOCK CASE RULING UPHELD Conviction on Driving While Drunk Charge Affirmed by High Court. DES MODJES, April 3. WP--·The tate supreme court today affirmed he Polk county district court's conviction of Lewis F. Wheelock, )es Moines investment broker, on a charge of driving an automobile while intoxicated. The opinion was written by Justice Claussen. The lower court had imposed a sentence of one year in jail and a me of 51,000. Four indictments were returned against Wheelock as the result of an automobile collision · June 21, 1931, east of Des Moines, in which Mrs. Mildred Tftlfer and her two children were fatally injured, when Wheelock's car and one driven by W. P. Telfer of Prairie City col- ided. Three of the Indictments were on charges of manslaughter and the burth on a charge of driving an au- o while intoxicated. Wheelock was acquitted on the manslaughter charge relating to the death of Mrs. Telfer. He was then tried on the charge of driving while intoxicated and convicted. When the state sought to try the other charges of manslaughter the defense counsel contended that their client had "been in jeopardy once on the same alleged offense and could not be further tried. The district court upheld this contention. The court split 5 to 4 in the decision, Justices Stevens, Kindig, Albert and Anderson joined with Justice Claussen in the majority opinion. A dissenting opinion holding that Wheelock should have been given a new trial was signed by Justices Mitchell, Evans, Donegan and Kintzinger. Former Boone Banker Named. OMAHA, April 3. C2B--E. C.

By NATHAN ROBERTSON ' WASHINGTON, April 3. W-A nationwide ballot box test of the "new deal" will start a week from today. , Illinois voters lining up for the first of the primaries of the national off year election, will inaugurate activities that in the next seven months will reach into every state. November will finish the election of 35-.senators, about the same number of governors and the entire house. Republicans are voicing openly the hope that the usual off year tide will restore them to many offices they lost in the Roosevelt landslide of 1932. Democrats predict that gains in the senate will offset an immaterial loss of seats in the house. · : Illinois to Start. The Illinois primaries next week will mark the start, but will give little indication of the outcome of the whole race. There is neither a gubernatorial nor a senatorial contest in that state this year. Speaker Rainey brought the white house angle strongly into the picture, however, when he reported advices from his friends that financial interests in New York were planning to donate in an effort to defeat him because of his stand for Rooseveltian measures. In addition the Illinois primaries will see the choosing of party candidates for 26 other house seats. In the 1932 elections, the republicans lost their majority of ' the Illinois house delegation when the democrats won six new seats. Six States to Vote. The battling will get under way in earnest next month, with primaries in six states. The first come May 1, in South Dakota and Alabama, where governorships are at stake in addition to house seats. The first senatorial contest will be reached in Indiana May 8, with Senator Robinson, Republican incumbent, fighting for re-election. Democrats are planning a warm fight to gain this seat, and three majority house members--Ludlow, Pettengill and' Mrs. Jenckes--are reported to be angling for the democratic nomination. The next week in May will witness the climax to a warm contest in both parties in Pennsylvania. Governor Pinchot is seeking to wrest the republican nomination from Senator Reed, while there is an equally warm fight in the democratic ranks. Two After Nomination. Joseph Guffey, national committeeman, and Roland Morris, former American ambassador to Japan, both are after the democratic nomination. The gubernatorial contest also is being fought strongly on both sides. The same day, May 15, Senator Kean, of New Jersey, meets his first test in the republican primary. He probably will be faced in the fall by Gov. A. Harry Moore, a democrat. Oregon's primary on May IS, with no senate seat at stake but with a governor to be elected, will close the balloting for next month. Six more primaries come in June, three in July, and then August brings 14, with ^the rest in Septera- CAMPAIGN LIKELY TO BE REAL DRIVE (Continued From Page 1) also had a whale of a lot of regulars.

The salary of the office was increased by the assembly from $4,000 a year to $4,500. As the basis for the contention that Clark was ineligible the state cited the provision that no member of the legislature during the term for which he was elected can be appointed to a civil office the salary of which has been increased. The contention of Senneff, Bliss and Senneff, attorneys for Clark, was that he did not come within this ruling for the reason that he had received his appointment which was confirmed by the senate before any action was taken by the legislature to increase the salary of his office. Found One Case. Attorneys found only one case in the United States touching on the decision. This was a Wisconsin ruling which held completely with Clark's position. In order to get away from this the state contended the appointmen! did not actually occur until after Clark got his commission, which was some time after the legislature adjourned. Clark's attorneys contended, anc this view was upheld by Judge Her rick, that the commission was no 1 the appointment, but merely the evi dence of an appointment previouslj made.

The press of the state is generally friendly to his candidacy. As a former commander of the American Legion, he has a wide following among the service men. As a fresh face in republican leadership, he is getting a far more cordial reception from the party leaders of past years than most folks realize. Also, he seems to "catch on wherever he goes. He has an appealing smile, and a keen mind, it will be conceded, too, before the scrap is over, that he is no slouch as a practical politician. If W9 personal followers keep up their enthusiasm, he will be »ery hard to beat in the primary, and his opponents are privately recognizing this fact The preliminary efforts o£ all of the candidates have been more or less in the nature of sparring. A few love taps have been exchanged, but nobody has been swinging any haymakers. They Still Remember 1932.

WASHINGTON, April 3. UP)-Amendments that would radically ewrite the $330,000,000 tax bill ap- ear likely to keep the senate busy or the rest of the week. Chairman Harrison of the finance ommittee had the right of way at TM^ esslion 0 ? Da oday's session in bringing; forward £ egg of J 350 ,000. he committee alterations that add- d about $72,000,000 in estimated evenue to the $258,000,000 measure assed by the house. After that the field will be open or individual amendments, of which about 15 will be pushed forward. If all were adopted the income tax ate would be increased by 50 per cent and taxes on salaries anc jonuses above $75,000 would reach !0 per cent. Would liaise Taxes. Senator LaFollette, (JR., Wis.), who proposed the 50 per cent increase, would raise normal income :axes from 4 to 6 per cent, and increase the surtaxes on the higher rackets to a maximum of 71 per cent on incomes of over $1,000,000. Senator Gore (D., Okla.), who offered the proposal to cut down ! high salaries by the high tax, would allow no deductions above the $75,000 mark. Repeal Candy Levy. Other amendments would increase Income taxes 100 per cent in time of war, levy a 10 cents a pound tariff on imported copper, abolish the 1 cent a gallon gasoline tax and repeal ±he excise tax on candy. While the senate worked with taxes, the house today had another chance to get at private bills, an opportunity long awaited by some members who have up measures to help individual constituents or small groups. Fountain. Inn Tribune. Farley, Former N. Y. Sheriff, Removed in Probe of 1932, Dies NEW YORK, April 3. LI')--Former Sheriff Thomas M. Farley, a central figure in the Seabury-prosecuted legislative investigation of 1932, died today at Fifth avenue hospital. He was operated upon recently for appendicitis.

Repuuiicans base their hope for gains in the house on the usua: swing of the pendulum in off year elections, and the fact that democrats are now holding scores oi heretofore normally republican seats. While democratic leaders privately concede they probably will lose some seats in the house, republicans say they will gain as many as 70 or 80. Even the latter, however would leave the democrats in con trol. In the senate, the situation is fa different. Thirty-five senators ar up. including 17 democrats, 17 re publicans and one farmer-Iaborite Shipstead of Minnesota. ly are showing signs of recovery from the sound walloping they got in 1932 Quite naturally, they are anxious'to return to power. The jobs which the boys held both locally and under the state administration look far better to them now, when they are held by democrats, than they did before. Also, no administration in power can hope to escape something of a let down after the honeymoon is over. Nobody knows how many of the republicans who voted for Roosevelt in 1932 will slip back into their old alignments this year, but upon state and local issues there are sure to be a lot of them. New :Laws Haven't Helped. In the very nature of tilings, none of the major measures enacted by he last legislature are likely to be pleasing to everyone, or even to an overwhelming majority. The liquor ontrol measure is not popular in he cities, especially those along the borders. The new sales tax is not likely to make very many votes until it de- pelops how much relief It is going to afford the real property owner. The old age pension law is going to be well received by those who are subject to its benefits, but when an attempt is made between now and July 1 to collect a tax of one dollar each from every man and woman in the state between the ages of 21 and 65, there is going to 36 friction. "Sweet Line of Issues." All in all, the republicans have a sweet line of issues upon which to campaign during the summer months. The candidacies in the primary of both Wallace Short and Knutson are likely to have considerable to do with the outcome of the primary. Short, unequestionably, is hurting Turner. He will have a heavy vote in Woodbury county, and in some parts of .northwestern Iowa, and much of this support has been for Turner in the past. Knutson is nrobably going to cut both Turner and Colflesh. All in all Iowa voters are in for quite a spell of political activity. The curtain has gone up. the orchestra is playing, and the first act is about to -begin. Who will be the hero? Who the villain? Tragedy or comedy? Who knows?
