’ i
District Committee Sends
Several to Subcommittees.
Traffic Bill Up.
•Action by subcommittee on a num
ber of District measures should be ,
expedited by action taken today by j
the House District committee seeking i
to get on tile District calendar, as >
early as possible, such matters of ieg- j
isiation as the committee believes j
should be acted upon at this session |
of Congress. Owing to the illness of j
Chairman Heed and the unavoidable *
absence of Acting Chairman Zihlman, i
Kepresentative dorian Dampen of |
'Wisconsin conducted the District i
meeting today.
Prominent among legislation eon- I
side red today is the full-stop measure
designed to relieve traffic situation in I
tin District, fathered by Represent-!
alive McLeod of Michigan, which ;
would provide for all vehicles coming j
to a full slot* before crossing arterial |
highways. The committee instructed !
the clerk to get a report from the j
District Commissioners on the bill. |
so that action could be taken at the
meeting next Wednesday.

Variation in Payments.
Total payments for the year have j
been estimated at about $1,825,600,000, i
but the March payments cannot b*-
defined properly as one-fourth of the
amount expected, because, in the opin
ion of officials, the uncertainty of
congressional action on a 25 per cent
reduction has caused a v. varia- 1
lion in the usual first payments,

I aggregating almost $20,000,000 in
