TWELVE THE OORSIOANA SEMI-WEEKLY . LIGHT, FRIDAY, DECEMBER 80, 1888. NET ASSETS STATE GOVERNMENT TEXAS GJH CONSIDERABLY OVER NINETEEN MILLION DOLLARS ADDED IN FISCAL YEAR OF 1938 AUSTIN. Doc. 29.—OT—The stnte government's net assets swelled Sin.fiO-l.iMl during fiscal 1M8, boost inn tho totnl to $118,319,481, Auditor Tom C. Kins said today in Ills nnmml report. Main masons for the slmrp gain were collections from the Unemployment compensation tax and pfrowth of tho permanent school fund. The state's deposit In the United States treasury, which receives jobless compensation moneys, rose from $13,768.7-19 to $27,916.49'l and investments, including the permanent school fund, were $S9,038,2!)0 compared with $80,060,682 August 31, 1937. Operating expenses of the state government. King said, increased from $144.572,102 in fiscal 1937 to $188,255,808 in 1938. Operating receipts, however, were $16,932,434 above expenditures. The travel bill alone for state employes mounted to $1,827,524, compared with $1,412,526 during the preceding year. King's analysis of how the state spent the $144,572,102 was of particular interest In view of the current campaign to cut expenses. Ho pointed out 30.8 per cent was spont for highways, 30.9 for education, 15.4 for pensions, benefits and retirements and 5.3 for elemosnary and correctional. It Is very difficult to trim appropriations for these functions. The auditor pointed out that tho state's net bonded indebtedness hud declined to $15,531,167, sf which .$10,888,399 is relief bonds and the remainder old bonds on which the state hnsn't paid Interest in several years. These bonds are held by state funds. King recommended that "some adequate provision be made to reorganize the accounting and auditing functions in our state government in order that the people through adequate and organized reliable reports may know how those to whom they have delegated the authority and responsibility of the govcrment are carrying out that sacred trust."

FORECAST CONGRESS DEMAND FOR GRADUAL WPA ABANDONMENT WASHINGTON, Dec. 29.— (/Pi— Senator Barkley of Kentucky, the majority leader, said today that if non-partisan county boards were named to Investigate complaints of disgruntled relief applicants he would be In favor of having WPA select the boards. Emphasizing that no leglslor lion would bo needed to set up such appeal boards, Barkley snid he believed that any such action probably would involve a change in the methods of final determination of those eligible for relief jobs. He said that the eligibility lists from which relief workers now are hired by the WPA usually were compiled by a certifying agent appointed by the county judge or some other local official. When relief applicants complain that they have been denied a place on the rolls, their complaints eventually must he referred to the same certifying official. WASHINGTON, Dec. 20.— (,V)— A congressional demand for gradual abandonment of the WPA was forecast today by some legislators in discussing a proposal to make the Public Works administration a soml-permanent agency. Although they expected little opposition to an emergency appropriation to carry WPA until July 1, several senators said they believed the next congress much decide whether there is to be long-time planning for relief nccds l In this connection, there have been proposals that congress draft a PWA construction program at least a year in advance, tentatively set aside the money to carry it out, and permit the PWA to take applications for projects. Then, whenever private industry slackened, the President could set the PWA machinery Into action Immediately. Sponsors of the plan argued that it would supplant some emergency WPA work and that eventually WPA might be abandoned. Asserting that he favored a permanent PWA to take up the slack in unemployment, Senator Hayden (D-Ariz) predicted congress would be asked to act on this suggestion after the emergl- ency appropriation for tho WPA is voted. That appropriation probably will be $650,000,000 to $750,000,000. NEAR THREE INCHES RAINFALL IN COUNTY DURINGJWEEK The rainfall Saturday night and Sunday amounted to .60 of an inch, bringing to the total for the week-end to 2.80 Inches. Of this amount two Inches fell Thursday and Thursday night, .26 of an inch Friday and Friday night. The rains proved a "life saver" for small grains In more ways than one, It provided plenty of moisture to keep It growing and also prevented damage from the ADMINISTRATION IS EXPECTED ASK HUGE SUM FARMJDGRAM PROCESSING LEVIES WOULD RAISE PART OF NINE HUNDRED MILLION BE SOUGHT WASHINGTON, Dec. 29.— Iff)— Farm-state senators predicted today the administration would seek about $900,000,000 for next year's agricultural program, with part of the outlay coming* from new processing taxes. New Deal farm authorities were said by reliable informants to be considering the appropriation of $500,000,000 from regular treasury funds and the Imposition of processing levies to raise an additional $350,000,000 to $400,000,000. These taxes probably would be placed on the processing of wheat, cotton, cornl tobacco and rice. About $7,5000,000 was appropriated for farm benefits in the past session, but only about $50,000,000 of sugar payments was provided from processing taxes. Senator Capper (R-Kans) said today he would work for a new program guaranteeing farmers the cost of production plus a reasonable profit on that portion of their crops sold domestically. Any surpluses would be sold abroad for whatever they would bring. From Senator Wheeler (D-Mont) came, a statement that farmers should be free to "exercise their own judgment" about crops.

Big, barrel-chested Barkley— who can make the glass celling In the senate chamber tremble with the basso profundo of his oratory—likes to sing. Short, square-shouldered Rayburn likes nothing better of a Washington winter evening than to curl up beside the fire with a thrilling- tax report. Although both of them as leaders of the majority have to do a lot of talking and question- fencing, neither has developed the stinging style of repartee which has generally been associated with the job. The top-heavy democratic majorities of last session, of course, may have had something to do with It. A leader does not have to ho particularly articulate when ho has most of the votes. Strong lungs, a powerful body and a sagacious political head have played a large part In the public life of Alben W. Barkley, of Paducah, Ky. Played Football. In college, oratorial medals blossomed on his broad bosom. He played football, fullback, of course, and he was good at bang- Ing away tirelessly at the enemy line. When the majority leader, Senator Joseph T. Robinson died suddenly In 1937, Barkley was chosen by his party fellows as their leader—by one vote over Senator Pat Harrison. Sam Rayburn of Bonham, Texas, Is a quiet man with a Ilk- Ing for simple things. He forsook a law practice 26 years ago to enter congress, where his friendliness and his Inconspicuous plugging at hard jobs gradually moved him forward. Between sessions of congress ho lives on a farm with his brother and sister. The purebred jerseys raised there are Rayburn's pride and he usually attends the state and county fairs at which they are shown. Favored Garner In 1932 before the democrats nominated Mr. Roosevelt for the presidency, Rayburn was floating balloons for his old friend and fellow Texan, John N. Garner. As chairman of the Interstate and foreign commerce committee he bore the brunt of the administration's fight In the house for such measures as security and exchange regulation, holding company abolition and rural electrification* When Speaker Joseph W. Byrns died suddenly In 1936 and the majority leader, William B. Bankhead, was elected to suc- ceed him, Rayburn was put forward for the leader's Job In the house. The president of the senate u«- ually does not take part in a house election, but Vlce-Prestdent Garner did not forget his old campaigner. "I'm for Sam said, "200 per cent."
