Sslec* Products, Inc., 4402 23rd St., Long Island City, N. Y. 35e&60e bottles New Housing Program of the Administration F EDERAL money totaling $070,000,000 will be spent In the next four years on low-cost rent and slum clearance construction projects, provided tlio administration's housing bill, introduced by Senator Itobert P. Wagner of New York, Is passed by congress. Mr. Wagner hopes It will be put through during the present session. The measure Is a compromise of the many proposals made by the various relief and housing agencies of the New Deal and was drafted after ;i series of conferences with President Roosevelt. It would create another bureau, with five directors, including the secretary of the Interior In his ex ofliclo capacity, receiving 510,000 salaries. The authority could employ officers, agents, counsel and other personnel without limitation as to number or compensation and without regard for the civil service laws. This authority would supplant the existing housing division of the Public Works administration. Only §51,000,000 would be appropriated for the present, of which $1,000,000 would be used for the purchase of the authority's capital stock, but the bill authorizes appropriations of $75,000,000 for the fiscal year 1038, 5100,000,000 for 1039, and $100,000,000 for 1940. In addition to these authorizations, the authority could borrow $100,000,000 from the Reconstruction Finance corporation, and sell notes or bonds, fully guaranteed by the government as to principal and interest, up to $100,000,000 for the fiscal year 1037 nnd $150,000,000 for each of the succeeding three years. This brings the grand total to 597G,- 000,000. The authority would be empowered to make grants not to exceed 45 per cent of the total cost and loans for the remainder to any public housing agency for the acquisition of land and the construction of "low-rent" housing projects. The loans would be repayable over a period not to exceed 60 years, at such rates of Interest as the authority decreed. In addition to the loans and grants, the authority could develop and administer so-called demonstration projects, which "as soon as practicable" would be sold to public housing agencies. Senate Begins Impeachment Trial of Judge Ritter OESOLVING itself into a court, *^- the senate began the impetfch- ment trial of Federal Judge Halsted L. Ritter of Florida—the twelfth such case in 137 years. It was believed the trial would last at least one week. The defendant was represented by Carl T. Hoffman of Miami and Frank R. Walsh of Washington and New York. The prosecution was In charge of RepresentntlveSum- A ft* PrltftPlf Mil* «f raWafera Judge Ritter mers of Texas, Hobbs of Alabama and Perkins of Now Jersey. Originally approximately GO witnesses were summoned for the trial, but 29 were excused because of withdrawal by the prosecution of two specifications in article seven charging Judge Ritter acted improperly in electric rate and banking proceedings. Judge Hitter is charged In seven Impeachment articles voted by the house with allowing A. L. Rnnkin, a former law partner, exorbitant receivership fees, with "corruptly" receiving $4,500 from Rankin, with violating the Judicial code In practice of law while on the bench, nnd with evasion of taxes on part of his 1029 and 1030 Incomes. In a 12,000-word reply, Ritter denied all of the charges. He asserted none of the actions cited had "brought his court Into scandal and disrepute" of "destroyed public confidence In the administration of Justice" In that court. Supreme Court Hits at Arbitrary Power I N A decision concerning a specific action of the Securities Exchange commission the United States Supreme court ruled against the SEC, and In Its pronouncement H uttered a significant warning against the exercise of arbitrary power by governmental agencies. Especially censured were the "fish- Ing excursions," often undertaken by commissions and congressional committees. Said the court: "The philosophy that constitutional limitations and legal restraints upon official action may be brushed aside upon the plea that good, perchance, may follow, finds no countenance In the American system of government. An Investigation not based upon specified grounds Is quite as objectionable as a search warrant not based upon specific statements of fact. "Such an Investigation, or such a search, is unlawful In Us Inception nnd cannot be made lawful by what It may bring, or by what It actually succeeds In bringing to light." The decision wns concurred In by six justices; a dissenting opinion handed down by Justices Cardozo, Brnndels and Stone, agreed with the warning of the abuse of power, but contended that the act of the SEC, held unlawful by the majority, was a legal nnd just means of stamping out frauds In security sales. Lowden May Be Keynoter for the Republicans L EADERS of both major parties are perfecting the arrangements for the national conventions and picking out the chief orators for those occasions. The Republicans have tentatively selected Frank O. Lowden, former governor of Illinois, as temporary chairman and keynoter of the gathering In Cleveland. If this choice stands it Is presumed the perma- F. O. Lowden nent chairman wlll be an Easterner, possibly Walter Edge of New Jersey, former ambassador and senator. . Some Western governor Is wanted by the Democrats as their keynoter, nnd the x honor may be given to Paul V. McNutt of Indiana, C. Ben Ross of Idaho or Clyde C. Herring of Iowa. For permanent chairman at Philadelphia Senator Robinson of Arkansas Is likely to be picked. The speech putting President Roosevelt In nomination for a second term may be delivered by Senator Wagner of New York. New York Republicans of the Old uard persuasion scored a decisive victory over Senator Borah in the primaries, and the Empire, state delegation to Cleveland will be un- pledged to any candidate. The triumph of the 'conservatives was complete. Not only were the Borah candidates defeated In nine congressional districts in which they made contests, but the organization candidates for delegates defeated Independent candidates not pledged to Borah in three other districts. Maine Democrats In their primary pledged ten convention votes to the renomlnation of Mr. Roosevelt. The Kentucky state Republican convention instructed the four state delegates at large to vote for Gov. Alf M. Landon of Kansas for the Presidential nomination. This, with previous developments, assured Landon of 18 of the state's votes. ,.,.'.<*-'{-y./'.-i. • • i Tornadoes in the South Kill Scores of Persons T ORNADOES tore across Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, Arkansas, and Tennessee, leaving death and destruction in their wake. About 400 persons were killed and hundreds of others Injured, and the property losses ran up Into the millions. The little city of Tupelo, Miss., suffered the most, with nearly 200 on the death list nnd more than a hundred homes smashed Into kindling wood. A few hours later another tornado struck Gainesville, Ga., and In three minutes had nearly ruined the business section of the town and killed more than 150 persons. In fires that followed the storm the bodies of many victims were burned beyond recognition. The mining communities near Columbia, Tenn., to the north and east of Tupelo, counted seven dead. Red Bay, eastward in Alabama, lost five lives to the merciless wind. Near-by Boonevllle, Miss., had four killed and Batesvllle, Ark., suffered one death. The tornadoes struck while the southeast was reaching a final total on storms which smashed through that region a few days before, causing 43 deaths In Georgia, the Caro- llnas, Alabama and Florida. Mrs. Roosevelt Christens New Plane Carrier M US. FRANKLIN D. ROOSEVELT flew down to Newport News In an army plane and there christened the navy's new $2,000,000 airplane carrier Yorktown, breaking a bottle of domestic champagne on its bow. The Yorktown will be ready for its test trip In about 12 months, and a few months later its sister ship, the Enterprise, will be completed. The flying deck of the Yorktown is 109 feet 6 Inches wide, and 809 feet 6 Inches long. The ship will have a speed In excess of 35 miles an hour. It will carry 2,072 officers and men, and about 142 airplanes. Wallace Reports Some Big AAA Payments D UE to the insistence of Senator Vnndenberg for publicity on large AAA benefit payments. Secretary Wallace has begun telling about them. He made a partial report, withholding the nnmes of recipients with three exceptions. This revealed that the largest cotton rental benefit payment, $123,747 for 1934, went to a Mississippi company headed by Oscar Johnston, an AAA official. Among the largest cotton payment recipients In 1933 were the Mississippi state penitentiary, which received $43,200 for controlling production on its cotton acreage, and $25,600 to the Arkansas state prison. Among other large payments reported under various crop control programs were: Sugar—$961,064 to a Puerto Rlcan corporation; $862,460 to a Hawaiian producer; $92,237 to a California beet sugar producer; $65,505 to a Colorado beet sugar grower. Corn-hogs—$150,000 to the "largest hog farm In the world," located In California; $49,194 to n farming company In New Jersey; $19,098 to a Massachusetts producer. Wheat—$29,393 to n California farming concern for the second 1934 and first 1935 periods; $26,022 to the "operator of a number of farms" in Washington state; $23,845 to a California bank, owner of a large wheat acreage; $22,325 to a "large Montana farmer." Cotton—$115,700 In 1934 to an Arkansas concern; $80,000 the same year to another Arkansas company. Tobacco—$41,454 to a Florida concern; $20,430 to a Connecticut producer; $16,843 to a South Carolina grower; $15,450 to a Kentucky grower. Hitler's Peace Program Is Formally Submitted A DOLF HITLER'S proposals for peace In Europe, together with his flat rejection of the plan of the other four Locarno powers for settlement of the Rhlneland s 11 u a- tion, were handed to British Foreign Minister Eden by Joachim von Rlb- bentrop, and passed on by Eden to the French nnd Belgian ambassadors In London. The British cabinet Adolf Hitler man scheme worthy of consideration, but the French government looked upon It as a "cunning plan" to split the Locarno powers and make Hitler the virtual dictator of Europe. Premier Sarraut and Foreign Minister Flandin were consulting on steps for frustrating the relchsfuehrer and preserving a united front of the Locarno nations. Following the example of Germany, the Austrian diet has repudiated that nation's military obligations under the St. Germain treaty. By unanimous vote It approved a bill Introduced by Chancellor Kurt von Schuschnlgg, providing for general national military service "with or without arms." Every male from his eighteenth to his forty- second year Is liable to conscription. 'This move, which has the support of Premier Mussolini of Italy, was not unexpected, and though it aroused the little entente nations to anger, probably their formal protests will bring no result.

Italy Claims Big Victory Over Ethiopians DEACE negotiations between Italy *• and Ethiopia, outside the League of Nations, seem Imminent, for emissaries of Emperor Halle Selassie already have been received by Marshal Pletro Bn- dogllo, and the Italian undersecretary of colonies Is In East Africa to conduct the preliminaries. This news followed closely the dispatches telling of a great victory won by Badogllo's northern troops over 20,000 fresh and picked Ethiopian soldiers whose fight was directed and watched by the emperor himself. The battle, at Mai Ceu, lasted all day and the Ethiopians left 7,000 dead on the field as they fled to Join the main body of 50,000 troops south of Lake Ashangi eight miles away. Italian fatalities included 16 officers and about 1,000 soldiers, most of the latter being Eritrean Askarls. It was believed Marshal Badogllo would follow up this victory with a smashing blow at Dessye, main concentration point of the Ethiopians, unless peace negotiations stop him. Just before this battle the Italian air bombers practically ruined Barar, second city of Ethiopia, Marshal Badogllo Washington.—In the last few weeks In Washington, we have All T It. heard 1Utle ab ° Ut All Talk any governmental About Taxes affairs except taxes. Everyone charged with responsibility for maintenance of the supply of cash to carry on the era of spending Is talking about taxes. It Is In truth the predominant subject, overshadowing even the lobby Investigation headed by Senator Black, Alabama Democrat, with that committee's record of obtaining private telegrams by subterfuge. It really Is. not startling that everyone should be talking about taxes because, however you examine the question of government at this time, your analysis must inevitably lead back to the question of the source of funds. And how could it be otherwise? We have a national debt $5,000,000,000 larger than it has ever been before, and still going higher; we have seven or nine or eleven million people unemployed— depending on the source of your information on this point—and we are confronted with declarations from President Roosevelt and his advisers that more must be spent. It seems perfectly obvious, therefore, that saner minds should be examining the whole economic structure of the nation to determine from whence the money Is to come. Congress Is In the midst of work- Ing out a new tax bill. The house of representatives, where revenue legislation must originate, according to the Constitution which is still operative, is up to Its neck with the tax problem. It Is trying to work out a tax bill that will carry out the White House orders to take more money from corporations by levies on surpluses along with some minor schemes of taxation designed to Increase the total somewhat. During the time the house ways and means committee was trying to formulate a tax program on the basis .of the President's tax message, there was a perfect deluge of tax discussion hereabouts. I think It may be said In this connection, also, that the house ways and means committee did a rather ridiculous thing as a preliminary to presentation of a tax bill to the houfce.' '< It actually began hearings on rax.legis- lation without a tax bill In legislative language having been drafted. As far as I can learn, It was the first time that witnesses were called In and asked to testify as to the efficacy of proposed tax legislation when there was actually not language In legislative form about which those witnesses could testify, either for or against. All the committee had before It was a so-called "committee report," 'a statement of Its views as to what ought to be done," and It was almost pitiful to witness Individuals who are expert on taxation attempting to catch on to some wlll-o'-the-wisp and say that It wns sound or unsound. Yet, that was wlmt Chairman Dough ton, Democrat, North Carolina, and his committee asked them to do. Perhaps I ought to explain for the benefit of those not acquainted with tax legislation that there Is nothing so important In a tax bill as the exact language. * * * One benefit has accrued from this situation, however, and I hope, as . , I believe everyone Wheeler a e \se desiring good Suggestion government and proper laws hopes, that it will result In a tax bill generally more acceptable than has been proposed thus far. The maelstrom of discussion that has arisen from the house ways and means committee hearings hns made a good many people "tax conscious." Re- Ing "tax conscious" at this time, a good many men capable of thinking straight have begun to offer suggestions. I have been receiving some of them myself, and one that has come to me has Impressed me so much that I am going to use the substance of It In this column. It comes to me from Mr. Harry A. Wheeler, widely known business executive and banker of Chicago. Mr. Wheeler has been recognized for a quarter of a century as a man who Is given to looking rather far Into the future and for his ability to analyze problems, circumstances and conditions on a long-term basis rather than on urgency of current requirements. "Since the consideration of the corporate surplus tax act began," Mr. Wheeler wrote me, "I have watched the proceedings closely for some alternative proposal that would produce a substantial tax revenue and yet tend to strengthen the program of the administration to assure continuing business recovery, create definite added employment In Industries still down and lower production costs and prices to the ultimate cosurner. "No one denies that Increased federal revenue by taxation Is Imperative, but It may be open to argument whether this can best be produced by the direct route of tax levies to cover full requirement or by beginning with a plan that will produce a large proportion of the requirements and permit the use of the remainder to accomplish the results first above stated. "The proposal Is very simple, quite capable of being written Into legislative provisions; It would car-, ry a clear guarantee of useful results and reach the final full requirements of the government by progressively Increasing taxable profits. "I propose that whatever per cent of undistributed profits may be determined upon as the tax base, permission shall be given for a drawback or retention of say 20, 25 or 33% per cent on condition that this amount shall be used for capital expenditure to Improve nnd cheapen production and distribution facilities. "The draw-back may be by repayment to the taxpayer upon voucher evidence that the amount has been actually expended or by credit upon the second year's tax levy. "Corporations will not fail to use this remainder and perhaps even add to it out of their available corporate resources. "Permanent goods industries will at once be stimulated by the knowledge that pur- Sttmulate chases will be Industries ma de to an aggregate of the drawback, and stimulation of employment must result ta most needed quarters. "The universality of this improvement In production and distribution facilities will create the competitive conditions that will compel savings to be passed on to consumers, but If any corporation tries to hold the added profits they will be taxed away In the following years. "Living standards may be raised by making more commodities come within the range of prices the public will pay. "Forced distribution in dividends to escape corporate high brackets, will find a large part being paid to stockholders taxed in very low brackets and the result over all Is not /unlikely to prove disappointing. "Increased tax rates on ineome'or earnings leads to the struggle to avoid payment by every device that can be developed. It may he that this plan of draw-back would distinctly modify this tendency." It is the first time that I have heard from any source the suggestion that the tax law should be made an instrument to encourage business recovery and promote employment. All of the objections heretofore have been directed at the character of the proposal and have not included constructive thoughts which could be used as a new base. Mr. Wheeler's plan may not be complete. It may not represent an answer to the tax needs in their entirety, but it must be said in Its favor that It suggests an approach to the necessary answer and embodies therein a plan of action which will not kill the goose that lays the golden egg. In other words it has been proved too many times' to require discussion that higher tax rates reduce the Incentive and the chief opposition to the administration proposal Is just that It takes away the Incentive of the corporations to make more monev which would ho available for tiix-i tlon. The Wheeler proposal, therefore, offers an incentive to corporations to proceed with plans of expanding their operation and therein- increase the number of workers on their payrolls.
