F.R.'S REQUEST IS DISREGARDED House Committee Votes $100,000,000 WPA Fund Until July I WASHINGTON, fi)--The house appropriations committee disregarded President Roosevelt's esti mate of relief needs Wednesday voting $100,000,000 to run WPA until July. 1. The president bad asked $150 000,000. -Referring to the chief executive' request, the committee said in a report criticizing some WPA operations that "it feels that its proposal is on the side of liberality." Against Increasing The $100,000,000, it said, would make the total available for WPA in the present fiscal year $2,163,268,406, compared with $1,427,701,994 in the preceding year anc 51,833,456,971 in the year before "This expense should not be building up," the committee said . "however, i-ecognizing that time is the essence just now because o: the pressing need, howevei brought about, to project administrative procedure for the remainder of the fiscal year, the committee, perforce, has,pursued a more liberal policy than a searching inquiry probably would justify.'! Farm Parity Defeated Congressional economy leaders counted on support of disappointed farm belt members in their efforts to hold down the WPA appropriation to some figure less than $150,000,000, when the measure reaches the floors of the house and senate. The house threw out a §250,000,- 000 farm parity fund by a 204 to 191 vote Tuesday night, after having approved it tentatively a few hours earlier, 175 to 171. Many senators, however, predicted its restoration when the agriculture department appropriation bill is considered in their chamber. Peanut Inhaled by Iowa Boy Now Walled in Tissue of Lung DES MOINES, {Ft--Ronald Sanford's peanut trouble apparently has ended. Once the peanut threatened the life of the 20 months old boy, but now, doctors said Wednesday, he is on the road to recovery. Self-healing properties of the human body are credited by doctors as the chief reason Ronald now is "as happy and healthy as c normal child." Three months ago the faoy inhaled a peanut. Doctors tried by every means Known to them to remove the kernel, but without success. Now the peanut has walled itself into the side of the boy's lung, where, physicians say, it possibly may never cause him further trouble. He has ceased running a temperature and no longer coughs. Chicago Clerk Must Wed Man of Jewish Faith to Get Fortune -Adele Gay, GENEVA, 111., «P) a Chicago hospital clerk, must marry a man of the Jewish faith within a year if she wants to qualify for an inheritance estimated at 540,000 to £70,000. The stipulation came to light When the will of her father, Harris Goldman of Elgin, 111, was offered for probate. Miss Gay, who is 32, joined the Congregational church seven years ago. Subsequently she legally changed her name from Goldman to Gay. The will bequeaths her one- seventh of the Goldman estate, estimated at $300,000 to 5500,000, provided she is married in her father's faith within a year of the probating of the will. "\ have no intention now marrying anyone," she said. of AUNT HET By Robert Quillen "Cousin Ben is our Emily Post. He says a gentleman can forgive another man for pickin' a pocket, but not for pickin' his nose." Nazis Take New Step to Rule Church BERLIN, (If) the Evangelical - Nazitication of (German Protestant) church was advanced another decisive step Wednesday on the orders of Friedrich Werner, president of the supreme church council. It was ordered that any church member has the right to choose some pastor other than the regular pastor for performance of "the individual duties of his office, for religious instruction or even for his entire churchly ministration." May Demand Assistant The regular pastor must in such case turn over the use of the church to a pastor chosen by the parishioner. The orders further provided that members of the congregation who find their conception of religion deviates from that of the regularly ordained pastor may demand that a minister whose views correspond to theirs be appointed at least as assistant pastor. There are chureli members in each parish who wish the congregation to conform to naziism Wherever these have been in a minority, however, their efforts so far have proved to no avail. Cleavagre Is Feared . _ Many members of the confessional synod, which is part of the German Evangelical church but which has stood for independence of the church from the state, fear this order is another opening wedge for nazi control. Bringing in a pastor from the outside necessarily brings about a cleavage within the congregation, confessional members say From that they fear it is but a short step to proving that order po longer can be preserved within the parish whereupon the supreme church council could interfere and remove the regular pas- MOVIE ACTRESS IS SLUGGED Believed Victim of Assailant Who Fatally Wounded Anya Sosoyeva HOLLYWOOD, (fP--Delia Bogard, 17 year old motion picture uvenile, was slugged and critically injured Wednesday by an at- acker she told police stepped from behind a building as she walked near her home.
