CLOSER WATCH
ON UTILITIES IS
SENATE'S EDICT
Norris Will Insist That Ex*

WASHINGTON, Sept. 11.—Close
nrrutlny will be given by the senate
to the federal trade commission’s in
vestigation of public utilities when it
reopens here, it was indicated today
This is due in large part to de
velopments of the summer which!
have laid new emphasis on the j
whole power problem.
Senator George W. Norris has
launched a move to have the trad 0
commission send detailed reports o:
Its hearings to the senate, including
extracts from the more important j
.ilblts made part of the record
.jiere.
In the past, monthly summaries of
progress in the investigation have
been submitted to the senate, but
nowhere, not even in printed hear
ings, have the exhibits been repro
duced. And the exhibits contained
most of the revelations of power
company propaganda activity which
have proven startling.
Reproduction of exhibits in a way
to make them easily accessible will
make the results of the inquiry
available for years. As it is. they
are put away in the trade commis
sion files and are forgotten, Norris
believes.
Norris wants the senate to have,
also, figures on the capital assets
and liabilities of interstate power
companies, their security issues, and
the charges made for service by
holding companies. These, are to be
brought out in the financial phase
of the inquiry, opening soon.
Announcement will be made in a
few days of the date on which fed
eral trade commission hearings will
reopen. It is probable the inquiry
into propaganda activities will be
continued at the first few sessions.

PREMIER OPTIMISTIC
Naval Stand Discussed by
British Press.
Bu Vnited Pres s
LONDON, Sept. 11.—Varied opin
ions were released by the British
press today on the extent to which
Premier Ramsay MacDonald was
justified In predicting a successful
outcome for the Anglo-American
naval discussions.
MacDonald’s most recent utter
ance on the subject was in his
speech to his parliamentary con
stituents at Durham Tuesday. Mac-
Donald said:
“I do not think we can call them
negotiations exactly, but we are pre
paring. We are both cautious na-
tions and we are not going to run
like a bull at a hedge and then find,
when we have prepared the scage,
that we began without completely
understanding one another.
“I am optimistic as I always have
been because the volume of world
public opinion supporting both na
tions is so strong I do not believe
we can fail.”
SLOT MACHINES TAKEN

erator at 2444 £ast Washington

cation of five machines.
