ROOSEVELT TO ASK CLEANUP IN SIXTY DAYS Short Congress Session Is Aim, With Quick Action on Relief Program. START SET FOR APRIL Farm Aid, Repeal, Balancing of Budget, Bank Reform, and Tariff Stressed. BY WILLIAM F. KERRY Vnitrd Press Staff Correspondent WASHINGTON, Jan. 25.—Presi dent-Elect Roosevelt has informed Democratic congressional leaders that the forthcoming special session must be prepared o deal quickly with a unified relief program, ’strictly along lines laid down by the incoming administration. The extra session is expected to convene in mid-April. Leaders al ready are trying to smooth the way for speedy enactment of legislation for economic rehabilitation. Mr. Roosevelt's goal is a sixty-day session, which would be the shortest extra meeting of congress in the memory of legislative veterans. As far as congressional leaders \ have been informed, the President- ’ elect will ask for a program center- , ing around four major objectives. j Farm Relief First 1. Farm relief: Some variation of the domestic allotment bounty plan,! together with mortgage relief for | debt-burdened farmers. 2. Prohibition repeal, plus modi- I fleation legislation. 3. Budget balancing: Including ! some sort of tax bill; governmental economies; thorough reorganization of executive departments. 4. Banking reform and tariff leigslation: The tariff measure probably to grant authority to the Roosevelt administration to bar gain with European nations for reduction of trade barriers. Congress will be urged to hew to the line of this program, and then adjourn quickly. Many in congres- j sional circles feel the President ■‘elect is doomed to disappointment, I but they are doing their best to j make way for his suggestions. Do Preparatory Work In linp with this policy,’the house ways and means committee will meet soon to reverse its recent "no j taxation” decision and report a ! continuation of the federal gasoline j tax. This will be done to relieve the approaching special session of ! one task. Other committees in both senate j and house are plugging away atj legislation which leaders know must; fail in the present hodge-poge j congress. Rather than putting the j labor down as so much lost motion, j Democrats contend that they are, clearing the way for rapid action j when the Roosevelt congress meets, j Measures on farm relief, beer, prohibition repeal, banking and the Tariff are being put into shape, j When congress meets again, this j legislation will be in condition to | be placed immediately before both houses. Leaders count on the in fluence of anew administration, party loyalty, and heavy Democratic majorities to rush the program to a successful conclusion. Insurgents to Have Say However, some feel congress will not be disposed of so easily. Insurgent groups among both Re- j publicans and Democrats are pre- j pared to push other measures. In the forefront are the currency j inflationists, constantly gathering j strength. This group, counting many j prominent Democrats among its ad herents, confidently expects* serious j consideration of its proposals in the extra session. Advocates of direct federal un employment relief measures also arc exerting strong pressure. Many of j the senate's so-called progressive bloc who campaigned for Mr. Roose- | velt will be found enlisted in the group. In addition, there will be strongl demands for labor legislation, the five-day week, unemployment insur ance. and other matters. War debts may have to be considered. TRAVELER PITCHES TENT ON N. Y.

Full t,-aspU Wire Service of the United Press Association KingJohnD.il World's Master Showman Is Strange Title for •Rockefeller. BY PAUL HARRISON NEA Service Writer NEW YORK, Jan. 25.—When John D. Rockefeller Jr. was a young man entering his father’s office, he must have anticipated a career of great wealth and power and accomplishment. These things would come in the natural course of events in the management of a mighty fortune. But he never dreamed that some day he would become the world’s great est showman! That he is, however, whether he likes the ap pellation or not. John Da vison Rocke feller Jr. owns or controls huge blocks of stock in some £r* John D. Jr. of this nation's biggest entertain ment enterprises, and he has built the largest entertainment center in the world. Movie cameras click, chorus girls prance, and crooners croon to the tune of Rockefeller mil lions. All this is strangely incongruous in the light of Rockefeller train ing and traditions. Asa boy, John D. Jr. wasn’t allowed to at tend the theater at all, and his 15 cents a week spending money wouldn’t have bought a ticket anyway. The sequence of events which were to make him an entertain ment magnate started in 1929. He had leased almost thiee square blocks in mid-town Manhattan, and there expected to launch an ambitious enterprise in ctiy plan ning and provide anew home for the Metropolitan opera. a n n BUT the Metropolitan backed out, politely but flatly, and left the younger Rockefeller holding an 87-year lease on a lot of old stores and brownstone houses, with rental charges amounting to nearly $3,000,000 annually. Then was conceived the idea of “a huge cultural and amusement center, combining the arts and the entertainment fields.” First it w-as called Radio City, then Metropoli tan Square, finally Rockefeller Center. National Broadcasting Company, Radio Corporation of America and Radio - Keith -Or - pheum came in to help pay the rent. Plans were made for the biggest office building in the world, the biggest theater in the world, the finest movie palqce in the world— and many another “largest,” “most beautiful” and “most costly” this and that. Most of these have been built, and construction on the remainder is continuing. John D. Jr„ per sonally has guaranteed a mortgage loan of $65,000,000 (also the big gest in the world) to furnish ready money for the work. So Rockfeller Center stands to day as the last and greatest monu ment to the easy-money boom times of the twenties. n a a TY OCKEFELLER was forced to extra millions to buy unexpired leases in the area, many of these leases on buildings W'hich housed speakeasies. Then Samuel Rothafel, who went into the movie business and became a specialist in the spec tacular under the name of Roxy, w r as named as director of the en tertainment enterprises in Rocke feller Center While the capitalist supplied the money, things W'ere carried forward on a grand scale. Roxy is articulate only when he talks in superlatives. After a few' short weeks, the vast Music Hall had a severe case of box-office trouble and has been changed to a movie theater. The movie theater, in turn, probably will become a vaudeville house, or may be closed entirely. Meanwhile, troubles have come from other quarters. Agents are wondering how they possibly can rent the 4,200,000 square feet of office space that will be available, or the special buildings that were to have been built for foreign countries, or the mile of shop frontage that will be installed in the development. Both the National Broadcasting Company and the Radio Corpora tion find that they don’t need anything like the amount of office and studio space they originaly contracted for. So they have ad justed their rental commitments by turning over blocks of stock. Rockefeller thus has acquired 100,000 shares of common stock in RKO. and 100.000 shares of A-preferred in the Radio Corpora tion. RANSACK TWO SCHOOLS Thieves Break Glass in J)oors to Enter Buildings.

The Indianapolis Times BIG SHIPPERS ASK SLASH IN FREIGHT RATES Present Charges So High as to Constitute Subsidy, I. C. C. Told. WANT IMMEDIATE CUT Petition Comes in Conflict With Plea for Extension by Carriers. By United Press WASHINGTON, Jan. 25—Charg ing that present freight rates are so high as to constitute a subsidy to railroads, major shipping indus tries today demanded an immediate downward revision of rates, to com bat the depression. The demands for reduction to a basis comparable with present low commodity prices was presented to the interstate commerce commission by organizations representing a large proportion of the nation's shippers. The joint petition is on behalf of the principal farm organizations, the National Coal Association and the National Lumber Manufactur ers' Association. They charge that industry in general is being forced to pay rates maintained at an artificially high level. The farm organizations joining in the petition include the Farm ers’ Union, the National Grange and the American Farm Bureau Federa tion. The coal association represents the bituminous industry and the lumber association represents the lumber industry in thirty-six states. The effort to reduce the rates comes at a time when the carriers, struggling under mountainous debts, are demanding that the I. C. C. give them authority to extend emergency freight surcharges beyond March 31. Shippers want the surcharges can celled. The National Coal Associa tion has charged that the 6 cents a ton emergency surcharge on bitu minous coal shipments has caused curtailment of coal production and made prices so high that consumers are turning to oil and other coal substitutes. Thimble Steins Wisconsin Legislator Scoffs at 5 Cent Beer Chances. By Times Special MADISON, Wis.. Jan. 25 Wisconsin legislators ap pealed to congress Tuesday for "pure beer at 5 cents a glass,” but before they did so one of their own members, who professed to be an "expert,” warned them that if beer came back at that price it probably would be in thimble-sized schooners. “I was in the saloon business before and after prohibtion,” Sen ator Walter Polakowski, Milwau kee, confessed to his colleagues, then added hastily: "But I’m not n it any longer, so I can speak as an authority on this subject.” While the Milwaukee Socialist continued his discussion, other legislators hurriedly thumbed through senate records, and found he was listed there as a “master upholster.” Other ’egislators chided Pola kowski later for his “slip” and said unquestonably it was the first time in history a senator “confessed” to a state body that he had sold beer "after prohibi tion.” LIGHTNING HITS PLANT 175-Foot Smoke Stack Falls on Utility Building: Damage Heavy.

Jan. 25.—Street fights and rioting in many parts of the Free State during the general elec tion were revealed today as counting of the vote began. Supporters of both President Eamon De Valera and ex-President William T. Cos grave made many charges of “re peaters.” Several arrests for illegal voting were reported. The most serious fighting was re ported from Ashburton, County Monachan, where troops were called out. A heavy vote was cast and the race between De Valera and Cos grave for control of the new dail was expected to be close. Officials of the army and the police said most of the disturbances were minor. Supporters of Cosgrave had the upper hand in the Ashburton fight until Republican reinforcements ar rived from Donaghmoyne. The po lice were unable to control the sit uation and sent for the military. Clashes between members of the "Republican army,” supporting De Valera, and the “white army,” back ing Cosgrave, were reported from Allyeonry and other towns. Cosgrave was believed to have won a comfortable majority in Cork. Unofficial surveys indicated that Cosgrave did well in the cities, while the majority of the farmers supported De Valera.

By United Pr?s* WASHINGTON, Jan. 25.—The thousands who write Presi dent-elect Franklin D. Roosevelt their ideas of how to bring back good times may be assured that if their plans appear to hold any germ of a workable idea, they are being summarized, filed and cross-indexed for future use by Mr. Roosevelt and his advisers. Even the proposals which seem too far-fetched to merit con sideration are scanned at least three times before being dis carded. Mr. Roosevlet's correspondence, always heavy, has increased to an average of 1,000 letters received daily. A staff of fifty is kept busy in New York reading, classifying them, referring the most impor tant to the President-elect, and answering an enormous number. Some 220.000 replies have gone out from the New York headquar ters. Letters pour into Mr. Roose velt's New York and Hyde Park homes, the Democratic national headquarters, and the “Little White House” at Warm Springs. None has been addressed to him at the White House here, but one was sent to “the unforgotten man, New York.” It was delivered with out delay to the President-elect's town house.

Prosecuting attorneys are at tempting to break down his story that he can not remember any in cidents of the shooting. Barber cried hysterically while under questioning late Tuesday. When asked by Defense Attorney William Reed whether he had shot Pratt, the prisoner muttered: “No.” He told of going to South Bend the day before the shooting with Carl Hand. Barber said he remem bered taking many drinks and that his mind became a blank, for sev eral hours. “You told Attorney Reed you did not IjdlL Pratt,” Prosecutor George Stevens said. “How do you know you did not kill him if you do not remember any thing that happened?” “I know I wouldn’t ever have killed a man,” Barber answered.

Al though now devoted to milder brews, it stands ready to create “the good beer” on a moment’s notice.

White-haired old attendants, ven erable with- years of service, re ceive visitors with courtely aplomb.
