To Protest Curtailment DALLAS, Feb. 20.— (ff)— The Dallas Times-Herald reported today local securities and Investment circles said a strong statewide protest was "under way" against curtailment of operations of the State Securities Commission. Tho paper quoted Pat Richards, formerly In charge of the division enforcement office here, as Haying six offices, Including that here, had been closed. Others were San Antonio, Houston, Tyler, Fort Worth and Big Springs, tho Times-Herald said Richards told It. . Dallas dealers and brokers said the tax to support the offices was obtained through a license tax upon them, and that therefore It was unfair to' collect the tax and abandon the offices, the Times-Herald said. Local Investment sources re- ther dispute at this time should be avoided if possible. They acknowledged, however, that the foreign policy debate undoubtedly would break out when the senate takes up the $376,000,000 army expansion bill. 1'iirty Viewpoint Secondary. Senator Austin (R-Vt), declaring his party viewpoint was secondary to his patriotism, said a committee Inquiry had convinced him the administration's encouragement of French warplane purchases was not unnoutral. Austin said he bellevou the transaction, center of the foreign policy dispute, "tended to promote our capacity to produce airplanes needed under the armaments program." Senator Logan (D-Ky) concurred In this opinion, asserting President Roosevelt did right In helping the French buy Douglas bombers manufactured for American army competition but not yet tested by the army. "Tho president violated no law," Logan said, "and he certainly acted in the best interests of the country. He has reason to feel proud of what he has done." Senator Mlnton (D-Ind) added: "If everyone knew what the senate military committee knows, there would not be a person In tho country who would -criticize the president." Testimony about the French piano sales was mado public Saturday by the committee about the time Mr. Roosevelt w*s telling reporters In Florida he might have cut short his Caribbean cruise In Europe. The Information was discounted by some sources here, although others pointed out that the president naturally had accr-i to reports not possessed by legislators.
