March 17.—(U.P) —The $4,800,000,000 works relief bill, over which the senate has wrangled for seven weeks, holding up all major legislation, seems rear passage this week in form acceptable to President Roosevelt. Administration leaders feel confident of sufficient support to steer the measure through a final gauntlet with the liberals cn one side seeking to push the appropriation up to $10,000,000,000, and the conservatives hoping to whittle it down to $2,880,000,000. The senate held its first Saturday session of the year last week to dispose of minor committee changes. It was agreed that the first order of business tomorrow will be an amendment by Senator Carter Glass, Democrat, Virginia, to continue the public works administration to June 30, 1937. Reduction Asked After that, the senate will consider the proposal of Senator Alva Adams. Democrat, Colorado, to reduce the appropriation to $2,880,-000,000. • Other senators then will try to change the bill to accord with their views. Senator LaFollette, Progressive. Wisconsin, leads the movement to more than double the appropriation-The senate Saturday approved an administration proposal to extend the Federal Emergency Relief administration until June 30, 1936, and eliminated an amendment sought by the Master Plumbers’ association which would have required letting of contracts on all mechanical sanitary work in building projects. Cotton Bill Vp The house will devote tomorrow to consideration of the Doxey cotton bill, which would exempt share croppers and small tenant farmers producing not more than two bales of cotton annually from provisions of the Bankhead tax. More than 30 house liberals of all parties, including 16 Democrats and eight Republicans, Saturday organized a “maverick’’ bloc. Members agreed on a 16-point program including federal regulation of credit, abolition of tax exempt securities, increased income and inheritance taxes, minimum hours in industry, adequate public works appropriations. government ownership of natural resources and monopolies, and adequate social security. for the dramatic presentation was made last night by Jack Swarthout, president of National Collegiate Players, who arranged to procure the well known band. Downing and his men have gained an enviable reputation recently by playing for all the dances which Mary Pickford has held at Pickfair, while they also have been heard at the Midwick country club and at the Bel-Air bay club. Motion picture studios, the Vista del Arroyo hotel in Pasadena, the Royal Palms hotel, the Sunset country club, the Redhill country club at Upland, and the Casa Blanca hotel in Ontario, all have encaged the orchestra at various timee. Downing’s orchestra was heard at the U.C.L.A. Four-Way formal at the Riviera country club. Filling an entire summer's engagement, Downing took his band to play on tour of Mexico and Pan- ater. The band is now filling its engagement with the Pacific Coast club in Long Beach and has made social arrangements to appear in Bovard auditorium on the 29th. Creating the proper atmosphere for the play, the orchestra will be heard in modern music which will lend the appropriate sophisticated touch which the play demands and yet will be in keeping with the Neo-politan setting, across the bay from the now famous Isle of Capri, of the play in which intrigue upon intrigue is piled up to form a hilarious, modern, sophisticated 6atire. “We are more than happy at having secured Downing and his orchestra to furnish the modem music for See Naples and Die/ for the music for the play will mean much in creating the appropriate feeling for the comedy itself,” stated Swar- Y.M.C.A.

Airplanes carrying food and mechanics were dispatched at once to the rescue. The message from the grounded party said the plane made a forced landing at Mimongo, north of Moui-la. a native settlement.

Congress Will Vote on Bonus Plan To Print Two Billion Dollars of New Money Faces Huge Odds WASHINGTON, March 17 — (UP) —The plan to pay the soidier bonus by printing $2,000,000,000 of new money starts through congress this week with a bloc of at least 40 senate votes waiting at the end of the trail to try to kill it. Once in every congress this issue —over which blood was spilled along Pennsylvania avenue in the last days of the Hoover administration— comes to a vote. The recent history of bonus legislation is that it always passes the house and comes to grief in the senate. Committee To Act Tomorrow the house rules committee will bring out a blueprint for procedure on the bonus vote. It probably will be a rule that will allow the house to vote on both of the two outstanding measures—the Patman bill and the Vinson bill. These two measures not only have split congress, but have divided veterans themselves. The Veterans of Foreign Wars are supporting the Patman bill, which calls for payment of the bonus by expending no more money than is needed to start the presses going over at the bureau of printing and engraving, where the government manufactures its paper money. The American Legion is backing the Vinson bill which allows milder methods, such as payment with currency that ist secured by bonds. One or the other is certain to pass the house. Big Odds Faced That will throw the issue Into the senate. Opponents of outright inflation there claim a minim im of 40 votes against the Patman biH They point to the fact that when the bonus came up last session, it was defeated overwhelmingly. Forty-five of the senators who opposed the bonus then are still at their desks. The American Legion said tonight it had taken a poll and found that 16 senators who are willing to support the Vinson bill will not vote for the Patman bill. S.C.
