FARM ACTION IS NEAR Lower Body to Take Up Banking Bill Monday; Vote Is Likely. H;l I mini I'l l .in WASHINGTON, March 18. Prompt and final approval of beer and .state bank relief early next week was promised today by con gressional leaders. Farm relief was just behind on the program over which leaders and committeemen worked while the house and senate took a day ofT after eight days’ labor at the emergency speed ordered by Presi dent Roosevelt. House and senate groups hoped to reach an informal agreement today on beer, to insure enactment of that measure Monday and per mit the brew to go on sale by April 4. There was every indication the senate would be forced to accept 3.2 alcoholic percentage set by the house bill. The house Friday re jected the senate figure of 3.05 and ordered the measure to conference. Senate conferees can not be ap pointed officially until Monday. But it was expected they would meet in formally today so that Monday's action will be only routine. Bank Bill Near Vote The house has agreed to take up Monday a bill permitting all state banks to obtain emergency loans from the central federal reserve banks on the same terms as federal reserve member banks. The senate has passed a similar measure. The house agriculture committee continued hearings on the Roose velt farm relief program and hoped to have it ready for a house vote early next week. The committee called Agriculture Secretary Henry A. Wallace and other officials to ex plain details of the complex measure. Wallace told a senate committee Friday the plan would involve taxes of perhaps $800,000,000 on food products. The money would be paid to farmers in return for reducing their production. Curtailed produc tion, the administration hopes, would lift commodity prices to pre war levels, restore farm purchasing power, and boost the whole country toward good times. Congress Is Favorable The amount of the proposed taxes, and the sweeping authority which the administration would have over the whole farming industry, stirred opposition in some quarters. Mast congressmen, however, were ready to give the plan an immediate trial. Mr. Roosevelt is preparing to lay before congress at least four more major bills to round out his emer gency legislative program. These are: • 1. Unemployment Relief—A pro gram has been drawn up to put at least 200,000 men to work on reforestation projects and other public works. The plan may be outlined in a special message to congress on Monday! Mr. Roose velt has decided a special bond is sue will not be necessary to finance the relief project. Rail Plan Drafted 2. Railroad Rehabilitation This is expected to follow the lines laid down by Mr. Roosevelt in his cam paign: Oonsolidation of carriers and more strict regulation of bus and truck lines to dominate cut throat competition with the rail roads. * 3. Temporary Banking Reforms— These would be stop-gap measures, to be followed later by a thorough overhauling of the whole banking system. 4. Safeguards Against Speculation —The nature of the proposals in this direction was not disclosed, al though it was said no federal regu lation of the New York Stock Ex change was contemplated. Program Is Speeded The present plan of Mr. Roose velt and his congressional advisors is to have congress stay in session until these measures, and perhaps Some additional ones, are enacted. The President hopes congress can do this by May and then adjourn until the regular session next Janu ary Mr. Roosevelt originally had planned to have the special session take a month's recess after passing the banking, economy, beer and farm relief bills. Senate and house leaders advised him they were ready to go ahead without a letup, and the President arranged to expedite his full pro gram for the nation's economic re habilitation.
