Convict Trapped by Wadsworth Tears Into Roosevelt; Sees Plot To Seize Industry. Measure Attacked By Ohio Democrat Wholesale Bankruptcies Ahead if It Wins, Lamneck Shouts WASHINGTON. April 24 (JP). Representative Wadsworth (R.. N. Y.) denounced the new tax bill before the House today as part of a plan for a "disciplined democracy" and criticized President Roosevelt by name as never using the word "thrift." Wadsworth, sometimes mentioned as a Republican presidential possibility. called the $803,000,000 revenue meas ure "another step In - the deliberate plan of the administration to fasten its control on the industry of the country." He spoke Just before the House con cluded another day of give - and - take argument on the bill, with only S hours and 36 minutes of discussion left for Monday. Leaders said they expected a final vote by Thursday. A few Democrats rose to praise the tax bill, and one. Representative Lamneck, Ohio, to denounce it, but for the most part today's debate was given over to the opposition. "'Disciplined Democracy' "Disciplined democracy," a nhrase coined by Rexford G. Tugwell, un dersecretary of agriculture, Wads worth said, is the philosophy under lying a long succession of legislative proposals in the last three years. "Not In three and a half years has the President exhorted his people to frugality," he shouted, pointing a finger at his Democratic colleagues. Thrift as a virtue is not Important in the new deal, either in Government or as exercised by the individual." He clashed with Democrats when he said efforts were being made to get around the invalidation of the NRA and AAA and again when he criticized the membership for the lack of attendance during debate on the tax biU. . - r - - Fears Bankruptcies Lamneck stormed into the well of the chamber to argue that the meas ure would wipe out thousands of business concerns, tend to create monop oly, and prevent the accumulation of corporate surpluses for "rainy days." The Democratic majority sent Rep resentative Cooper (D Term.) to the firing line to reply that attacks on the bill have "consisted of meaningless generalities." Representative Ford (D., Calif.,), added that the bill would 'strike at the root of economic evil." In the Senate, too, some Democrats were Joining in the criticism, with talk of finding other ways to produce more federal income. Just how far they might go in attempting to revamp the bill, when it reaches the senate, was uncertain. Harrison is Opiimistie Chairman Harrison (D., Miss.), of the Senate Finance Committee said, however, that he did not expect any great amounut of trouble in "getting a bill out." The Senate committee today heard H. Parker, head of the Joint con gressional tax committee explain the major feature of the House legislation. (This would replace corporation in come, excess profits and capital stock taxes with a new corporation tax graduated according to percentages of income withheld from distribution to stockholders. Coupled with application of the 4 per cent normal Income tax to corporation dividends, the plan is estimated by its backers to be capable of producing $620,000,000 additional revenue. (To bring up the yield, the bill seek ( c ' 1 Anthracite operators remained grant the demand of the United 35 - hour week in the hard coal countered with two alternate to renew the present contract one.' The conferees, headed by At the conclusion of the dav's de Dating both sides were agreed that notning of a definite nature was accomplished. "We are no further ahead than we were at the conclusion of last night's meeting," one of the nego. tiators said following the meeting. The decision to meet tomorrow gave some hope that progress might be ex pected over the week - end. It also was expected that the miner's full Scale Committee would be called into session late Saturday or on Sunday to pass upon any further proposals that may be submitted by the producers. Working Fours Stumbling Block The operators' position, as outlined today at the conference, was sum marized as follows: We can't grant any terms which will mean an increase in the cost of production or - an in crease in the price of coal to the con sumer. Previously the producers held that the only means of rehabilitating the hard coal industry was through a reduction in the cost of coal. To this end they demanded a wage reduction of 22.3 per cent Early this week the op: - rTs modified their wage cut demand to 10 per cent. At the present t:tne, they have indicated to the union, they will be satisfied to continue with the present wage rate and conditions. The principal stumbling block to a su:::r!il negotiation of a new contract to succeed that expiring at midnight on April 30 is the question of working hours. The union leaders continue to press for the adoption of the '35 - hour work week, five days of seven hours each at the same wages now being paid for 48 (Continued on Page 2; Col. 1) New Arrests Due In Wendell Probe "Some Jersey Officials" Are Next, Is Hint NEW YORK, April 24 (JP).
