Senate Hay Also Reject Guam Plan Continued from Page One. ator Sheridan Downey, D., Calif., proposed a "unique method of financing public deficits and likewise the public economy in the 'event of war." Downey's bill, which may be introduced early next week, calls upon the Secretary o£ the Treasury to set up in the Treasury books a National credit to pay all Federal debts not met by regular Government revenues. . "These credits," Downey said, "would be deposited in demand deposit accounts separate from present bank deposits, and subject to an anti- hoarding tax of one-half of one per cent a month. The bill would authorize the Federal government to monetize its own credit without interest charges."

Atkinson heard the evidence without a jury and found him guilty. McCall repeated his confession in open court to the judge, and, in conclusion, said: "I just want to make the plea that nobody ever let money tempt him that way." He first insisted that he had been merely the accomplice of R, A. Cash, the baby's uncle, who, he said, had stolen the child and collected the ransom. The Federal agents questioned R. A. Cash and exonerated him so completely that Hoover denounced McCall for an "extremely unjust and untrue statement." McCall then acknowledged that he had had no accomplices.

Representative William Sutphin, D., N.

CRAWFORD COAL M S N E CLOSED BY LABOR TROUBLE rallied to his defense and there followed a long battle through the courts to upset Atkinson's findings on the grounds that he should not have been permitted to plead guilty, that he should have been tried before a jury, that he had not been properly represented by the counsel whom Judge Atkinson appointed for him. Two weeks ago, Rev. E.- H. Crowson wrote the Florida Supreme Court that McCall had told him he had confessed to the G-men under duress. Attorney Avriett immediately petitioned the court for a new hearing on this contention. The court ruled, "the record of his testimony and of coiToborating physical circumstances show beyond any question of reasonable doubt that he did commit the opposition group demanded'immedi- ate debate on the question of recognition.
