The present law restricts use of;the money to cemetery roads. The other bill would allow Des Moines to levy Vs mill for a municipal band. . ' More for Aged. When the house finishes with the homestead bill it must go back for the senate for approval of changes written into it by the lower chamber. The major amendment voted by the house would levise the method of apportioning the three point tax. , Where the senate voted that $5,500,000 yearly should go to old age pension payment and $2,000,000 yearly for- relief, the house changed- the figures to provide for 56,500,000 for pensions and only 51,000,000 for relief. Under both bills, an estimated $10,000,000 yearly would remain for reduction of property taxes paid by farm and city home owners. Each home owner would receive the same amount of reduction for each dollar of his property's assessed valuation up to a $2,500 valuation limit. Leaders Arc Puzzled. Whether the. bill itself re-enacts the state sales tax has puzzled both house an senate leaders. One section of the homestead measure strikes from the present sales tax law the clause which says the tax -shall terminate on April 1, : this. year. Several legislators, however, have insisted that "to be on the safe side" the entire sales tax law should be re-enacted. .Ready for introduction when the senate convened Thursday was a bill to give the-state planning board official status. Also on the senate desk was. a committee report recommending passage o£ a bill to prohibit the issuance ' o f beer permits to establishments within 300 feet o£ a state park. Throughput Wednesday house opponents to any move to reduce allocations from homestead exemption successfully r e s i s t e c amendment after amendment bul dust before adjournment.bya vote of 52 to 50 it adopted a plan to increase the allocation for old age pensions from $5,500,000 to SB,500,000. . . · The same amendment reduced the allocation of sales tax funds for relief from $2,000,000 annually to $1,000,000 a year. Burma's Move Wins. Representative Henry F. Burma (R) of Allison, who during the heated discussion earlier in the day had taken little part, proposed the one successful major change, .challenging the house to fill its obligation to the "aged of the state for whom we can never do enough;" , Thus at adjournment the senate, bill providing exemption on $2,500 of assessed valuation remained almost intact. During the morning the house voted time and again . to;:ieject proposals to allocate tax revenues" 16'·'.·schools,- -for a state building fund, for care of dependent children and finally for the. exemption of bread and milk from the sales tax. Just before its decisive vote was taken on increasing the allocation for old age pensions, members received from the old age assistance commission pamphlets showing that to pay a maximum of $25 monthly to 50,000 aged needy, an allocation of $6,100,000 would be needed. Henry Ford Favors Newspaper Use in Modern Education .WAYS, Ga., (£)--Henry Ford said Thursday he preferred newspapers to history books in modern education--and not t ob many games during school hours. "Newspapers are the best edu cators," Ford said in an authorized interview at his winter home in south Georgia.

PHONE 986 ROOSEVELT HAS MORE SESSIONS Continues Discussions on , Court Program With Congressmen. WASHINGTON, (/P) -- More white house conferences formed the medium through which Pres- ident'Roosevelt worked Thursday for the success of his court reorganization program. Continuing discussions with congressmen which began soon after the program was announced, he arranged to meet eight democratic and member o£ the house .alter a luncheon talk with Solicitor' General Stanley Reed, who aided in 'drafting the plan, and Assistant Atty. Gen. Robert Jackson, who is working on wage and hour legislation. These, presidential conferences coincided with disclosures by usually well informed persons that the president was understood to be considering a tieup between his supreme court proposal and a constitutional amendment. Would Limit Power. The amendment probably would limit 1 the court's power, they said, and the president would make its ratification a pre-requisite to making his own program effective. , Chairman Sumners (D., Tex.) of the house judiciary-committee said the committee had decided to delay study of the reorganization program until the senate acts. The house foreign affairs committee approved 15 to 3 the McReynolds permanent neutrality bill which- would give the president discretionary authority to prevent exports of American goods to belligerent nations. Wallace Pushes Plan. , Secretary Wallace, appearinp, before a senate agriculture subcommittee, said a federal; crop insurance pr.ogram would tend to stabilize wheat prices. The program proposed by the administration and under consideration by the committee would be applicable to wheat only at the outset, later being extended to other crops. The house interstate commerce committee approved a bill to repeal the "long and short haul" provision . of the interstate commerce act which regulates competitive rates railroads may charge. The senate neared a vote on the reciprocal trade act after Senator Borah (R-Idaho) declared it burdened American agriculture with foreign competition. Asked by Harrison,. Asked by Senator Harrison (D- Miss.). a champion of the program, if he thought the Canadian treaty had seriously affected American cattle" ; prices, Borah said: . . . . "If enough cattle came in to help the Canadian farmer, enough came in to hurt the American farmer;" Although his protest joined those of Senators Vandenberg (R- Mich.) and Capper (R-Kans.) pnd other leading republicans, administration managers held to their belief the senate would pass the bill extending the president's power to make such treaties. The old age pension advocate, Or. Francis E. Townsend, said he would seek a new trial of the charge that his sudden exit Irom a-congressional hearing last year constituted contempt of the house. He was convicted yesterday by a federal court jury. Bill Would Solve Back Door Measure From Liquor Store DES MOINES, (/P)~James Bell (D) of Burlington introduced in the senate Thursday a 'bill which would eliminate the 'problem of back door measurement in deciding how close a liquor store could be to a school or church.' The present law says a liquor store must be at least 300 feet away from a school or church-measured in a direct line. Bell's bill would change the law to make the distance "by sidewalk measurement." Thus a liquor store could be established 300 feet around the corner from a church or school with their back doors almost adjoining. Noted Educators at , St. Louis Sessions ST. LOUIS, (IP)--No led educators ot United States and Europe convened here Thursday for the three day conference of the ·pro- gressive educational association. Discussion on how tr teach youth to fit himself into present day society headed the extensive program. The conference will deal mostly with questions involving present day human relationships and the problems confronting children of school age that have come with changes in.society as well as the "changes in the framework of democracy," said Frederick Rene- fer, executive secretary of the association.

MOSCOW, (/P)--Ten Germans, arrested on suspicion of sabotage and espionage in . November last year, will be deported from Russia immediately, the soviet government informed the German embassy Thursday. The embassy declared it "was not advised" on the status of 34 other Germans known to be held in Russian jails. Four of the Germans lacing deportation are incarcerated in Mos- 'cow and the other six are in jail at Leningrad. (German Ambassador Count Friedrich von Dcr Schulenburg made "serious" representations on behalf of the imprisoned Germans last week. (Russian vice-commissar for foreign affairs, N. N.

In Spain, severe fighting raged from the Madrid front, especially in the Jarama river sector, to the torn city of Oviedo near the Bay of Biscay.' French objections, to details of a land patrol and Russia's objections to her part of a sea patrol complicated the picture as six powers gathered for a neutrality subcommittee meeting in London. An "act of God" shelling o£ the British warship Royal Oak off Valencia Tuesday presented the possibility of other such incidents when the powers begin to patrol Spain to keep foreign men and arms out. Although a full blockade was believed impossible by the'dead- line--March 6--some hope was expressed a modified plan could be effected by then. Government troops fought to gain the heights of Pinzarronhill dominating the road from Madrid to Valencia. Madrid officials set insurgent dead in one phase of the battle for the hill at 2,500. Basque attackers of insurgent held Oviedo, "second Alcazar" o£ the war, reported they stormed the heights dominating Naranco hill, last insurgent redoubt on the city's outer rim. The plea of the "We The People" listeners committee that applicants for time on the show write legibly seems to have been of little avail. Phil Lord has had to employ a hand-writing expert to decipher many of the letters that come in. wcco Columbia Broadcasting System Minneapolis.St. Paul Central Standard Tim* (810 Kilocyelci) Friday, Fen. 26. 6:1S Time Signals B:30 SinK Neighbor Sing 6:J5 Toby and Tex 7:00 Air Almanac 1:15 Junior Brondc^lers Club 7:30 Musical Chimes 8:30 Allen Prescott R:45 Gene and Glenn 3:01) Betty and Bob 9:15 Modern Cinderella 9:30 Betty Croclicr n:45 John K.
