RED ATTACK ON TROTSKY INTENSIFIED MOSCOW. Priday, May 21—OJ.D —The government today intensified its drive against "Trotskyists" and spies following the execution of 44 persons at Svobodny, Siberia, for allegedly planning to blow1 up the trans-Siberian railroad in a Japanese plot. Orders were issued to guards along the 6000-mile new doubletrunk railroad to increase precautions aaginst "Trotskyists” allegedly in the pay of Japanese secret service police. Investigations of widespread sabotage ln Russian industries, revealed in the government organ, Pravda, were speeded up. The investigations spread to the army, which was reshuffled in a new decree placing military control in the hands of party leaders and War Commissar Klementi E Voroshilov, reportedly to eliminate the possibility of espionage among trusted army officers. deavour I drift at Sea Une Breaks ^'PORT.

The miners sat down as their shift ended at 7 p.m. George Wilcox, mine superintendent, said the men had "no reason to strike." Batt le Over CCC Is Won By Roosevelt President's Victory Is Followed by Defeat In Economy Fight WASHINGTON. May 20 —(U.R*_ President Roosevelt lost a $3,200,000 economy fight in the "pork-hungry” house late today but won an easy victory In the senate to make the Civilian Conservation corps— his favorite new deal project—a permanent agency. Earlier he had bowed to house Democrats rebelling against his sweeping economy drive, by agreeing to support a $25,000,000 emergency flood control program for the Ohio valley this year. Thus Mr. Roosevelt reversed the position he took 4 fortnight ago when he urged that flood control authorizations be deferred until the next session of congress. BLANK CHECK INDICATED Although the revolting house torpedoed plans of Mr. Roosevelt and its own appropriations committee to economize on the interior department appropriation bill, there were indications that the Democratic majority would £ive the president another blank check for $1,500,000,000 to finance relief during the coming fiscal year. The work-relief bill was placed before the chamber today with a charge by Rep. Clifford A. Woodrum. D„ Virginia, that racketeers are keeping up the cost of federal aid to the destitute. Woodrum. who led a futile fight in committee to slice the appropriation $500,000,000 in the interest of economy, said caustically that such a reduction would not provide "a liberal allowance for the relief racketeers keeping hanging onto the trough—not a liberal allowance for socialistic or idealistic experiments.” SUPPLY BILL INCREASED Action by the house ln increasing the Interior supply bill approximately $2,060,000 over this year's grant, $3,200,000 over budget estimates, and $7,800,000 over the appropriation committee's recommendations did not startle democratic leaders. Other supply bills have been passed and sent to the senate calling for appropriations substantially below budget estimates. But the interior bill embraces such vote-getting projects as vocational education, parks, highways, and reclamation work which, in the political vernacular, go under the general title of "pork." For example, the appropriations committee recommended $7,241,500 for vocational aid to states. The budget bureau recommended $4,241,500 and warned that to increase this amount would be "wasteful and unnecessary.” SPEAKER Coal Miners Begin Strike “ able to take the sea with Proper rig ri. the towing yacht. . ot alarmed.
