Thorp, an economist on leave from the private business research firm of Dun and Bradstreot. Thorp failed of senate confirmation In 1938 as chief of the commerce department's bureau of foreign and domestic commerce because some members contended he held radical economic views. Some administration economists now call him a conservative thinker. Thorp declined to label himself. What does he think about business? He says he Is not sure— that what the country needs Is more scientific research on tho subject, such as some of the material dug up by the federal monopoly committee. But leaving aside detailed reservations, Thorp expressed this philosophy—that things can't bo perfect In a democracy, that waste and Imperfection are a part of the price a nation pays for democracy, and that, especially, democracy Is worth the price. He endorsed competition as a means of making business behave, but asserted the railroads and bonks already have demonstrated unrestrained competition Is not feasible in all lines.

It was tho climax of a knockout offensive launched Dec. 23 by the Insurgent armies from lines roughly 80 miles west of the city. Three picked columns of troops which Jiavo seen some of the most savage fighting of the war— I the Moroccan Legionnaires, the Navarroso army corps and an Italian "arrow" division—were given the honor of leading the entry Into Barcelona. The' Plaza de Catalunyo, tentral square of Barcelona, and Its most important buildings, such aj the telephone building, had long been barricaded behind sandbags, but most of the government defenders had been evacuated to the north. To Complete Occupation. Insurgent reports said the occupation should be completed by nightfall. Franco's high command had map- >od out a plan for the methodical occupation of tho city after driving out its armed defenders and reducing Its civilian poprlaton to submission with bombs and shells. Mcanwhlc ministries of the republican government had fled to Northern Gerona province, near :ho French border, where they wero spread through several jwns.

WASHINGTON, Jan. 28.— Diplomats and military experts here who believe the Spanish government forces cannot hold out much longer expressed belief today an end of tho civil war would bo followed by a long period of disorder and bloodshed. Guerilla warfare, they said, might continue indefinitely In some sections after General Franco's advancing troops have subjugated government territory. But the Spanish embassy In Washington indicated that the supporters of the republic were by no means ready to give up. In *. statement last night it said: "Tho Spanish people will not surrender, Just as thoy have not surrendered before When there has been a foreign invasion." Members of the'Spanish government said only last week that rich,, industrial Catalonia, backbone -of the -republic's defense, would be subjugated when the last soldier, backed up against tho French border and the Mediterranean, Is killed as he raises his rifle for a final shot Omaha Reaches Marseille.

AMLIE (Continued From Page One) Bolles conceded the house had no voice in determining who should fill executive offices—the senate confirms presidential appointees. A prospective senate fight over Amlie's confirmation was assuming, meanwhile, the proportions of a board conflict of economic views. Some senators expressed opposition to Amlle because of his views as (unbodied In legislation ho proposed when a member of the houo. Senator Andrews (D.-Fla.) said President Roosevelt's appointment of the former Progressive congressman to a federal com- he same category as his recent cabinet selections.

Some of these sold no luch consideration was Involved n the Amlle appointment. While In the house Amlle sponsored a proposed constitutional amendment for government ownership and management of busl- icss, manufactures, Industry and lanklng. In this connection, Senator Nor- rls (Ind.-Nob.) commented: "I don't believe that It disqualifies a man to bo an Inter- itate commerce commissioner if 10 believes In government ownership of the railroads." On tho other hand, Senator Austin (R.-Vt.) sold ho believed .he committee should make a thorough Investigation of Amlie's proposed legislation. (Contlnued From Page One) O'Danlel's tax proposal. Besides the governor's drastic proposal to change the state's tax structure and pension setup someone else's poll tax abolishment suggestion, other constitutional amendments which might reach the people for a vote this year are: Providing four-year terms, Instead of the traditional two, for all precinct, county, district and state offices.

Tho motion was not subject to debate. Bradbury said In explanation of It that advocates of the bills claimed It would benefit stockmen and he felt the agriculture committee was the proper/body to consider It. Opinions differed as to what W. Leo O'Danlel, the new governor of Texas, would do In event tho legislature should vote to bring back racing. Ho said a few days ago he was against anything which would put the state In partnership with crime. Several months ago, he said he at that time had an open mind on the question. Race betting In Texs was outlawed In 1937 after on* of the most bitter fights In recent legislative history. Action was taken on tho insistence of former governor James V.
