TARIFF REDUCTION IS SEEN IN SENATE House Rates Expected to Be Slashed by Finance Com mittee Action. BT G. GOULD LINCOLN. A redvstion of tariff rates below those carried In the House bill by Sen ate action is becoming increasingly more probable as the day* *o by. In fo*. tb» bill as it comes from the Sen ft- fln*»ee committee Is now expected to prolific /dr lower duties, in a number Os instances, than those carried in the House bill. If that be true, then doubtless the rates will be cut still lower when the bill is considers in the Senate itself. For a majority of the Republican members of the finance committee, who in the end will draft the bill for report, are reckoned hard-boiled high protec tionists. There are several reasons for this development in the tariff situation, a development whteh was not expected a few weeks ago. <* First, the reaction to the House bill throughout the country has been hos tile. The press of the country, includ ing many of the staunchest Republican newspapers, have attacked the measure. Second, the Western farm States have been particularly antagonistic to the bill, because, while It gives increases in duties on agricultural products, it also has given many increases in duties on manufactured and other products which the farmers must buy. Third, President Hoover in his mes sage to the Congress advocated » • limited revision” of the existing tariff law, and it is known that the Chief Executive considers the House bill goes much beyond that mark. Near End of Work. Under the original plan of procedure the subcommittees of the Senate finance ' committee which have been holding, hearings on various schedules, were to complete their work by July 10, permit ting the full committee thereafter to hold hearing* on the free list and the administrative features of the bill, in cluding the “flexible” tariff provisions. While most of the subcommittees will have wound up their hearings by Wed nesday. the chances are that one or more of them, particularly that subcom mittee dealing with the metal schedule, will continue for some days longer. The Senate is due to reconvene August 19. It i* doubtful now that the committee will be ready to report its bill by the time the Senate reassembles, although Chairman Smoot will seek to have it in shape by that time. But one thing last night appeared reasonably certain in the tariff bill situ-, ation. A vote will be had on the bill in the Senate and on the bill as it comes from conference between the two houses during the present special session and before the regular session opens in De cember. This assurance was given by Senator Fat Harrison of Mississippi, one of the Democratic members of the finance committee. He Insists there will be no effort on the part of the Demo crat* to filibuster or unduly delay passage of the tariff bill. “We want full opportunity to discuss the tariff bill and we want the country fully informed in regard to it.” was Senator Harrison's comment yesterday, “but the minority party in the Senate is not going to seek to prevent this leg islation bv filibustering tactics. The bill will be voted upon finally before the regular session begins in December. Predicts Hard Struggle. Senator Harrison looks forward, how ever, to a hard struggle in the Senate over the bill. The sugar schedule, the administrative features of the bill, in cluding the flexible tariff provisions, and the duties on building materials are among the items which will In his opinion result In the most severe con tests and the longest debates. The Mississippi Senator announced he would demand the publication before long of the protests which foreign governments have Hied with the State Department against tariff increases and which Secretary Stimson has transmitted to Chairman Smoot of the finance committee. Protests have come from a score of nations. “If we are going to give offense to certain foreign countries and are going to injure our own foreign trade by bringing about rataliatory measures on the part of other nations, before such steps are taken, the American people are entitled to know all the facts in the matter,” said Senator Harrison. The details of the protests lodged with the Btate Department against proposed American tariff Increases have never yet been made public, Senator Harri son said, nor have they been laid be fore the full membership of the finance committee. It is expected that Senator Smoot will make pmblie before long the slid ing scale of sugar duties, which he has prepared for submission to the com mittee. He is authority for the state - ment that this sliding seals will pro vide lor duties somewhat lower than those in the sugar schedule of the House bill. The Democrats so far have taken no position with regard to the proposal for a sliding scale of sugar duties. They want to know what it is and at Just what point It will begin to slide. In other words, they fear that the rates may be left as high as they are in the House bill on sugar, but ■with a proviso that under certain conditions they may be lowered. The Democrats would prefer to see the rata fixed at a low figure, to be raised later by the sliding scale, if there is to be any such scale and if conditions in the future warrant it. Senator Bingham of Connecticut, Re publican member of the finance com mittee, is one of those committeemen who have reached the conclusion that the bill, as reported to the Senate, should be modified and will be modified, with rates somewhat lower. When it comes to the details of the lower rates, however, there is not yet much predic tion at hand. It may be presumed, however, that some of the rates car ried in the House bill which have been moat severely criticized will be among those in which reductions will be made. Conference Fight la Seen. Even if the Senate lowers the tariff duties below the rates carried in the bill, as now seems probable, the bill has yet to go to conference, with the promise of a hard fight by the House to retain the duties written orig ineliy by that body. However, thi Senate, If it lowers the duties, will have the Influence of the President behind It In its contest with the House. And just as the House, backed by the Presi dent, wen in its fight over the farm bill against the Senate, so the Senate, back ed by the President In this instance, may be expected to wm over the House. If a combination of Repub lican Insurgents and Democrats should write the so-called export debenture plan in the tariff bill aa an amend ment, the President would perforce be pieced in a position gs opposing the Senate bill and standing with the House a«aln. The debenturltes in the Boost* insist they wiU be able to place the amendment in the bill. But their chances do not appear so good now as they were a few weeks ago. Lindbergh'* »t Kingman, Arig.

WEATHER DELAYS PLANE’S TAKE-OFF 'Untin’ Bowler Awaits Better Conditions Before Next Hop Toward Berlin. * • 09erial*f>iftf>atch to The Star. CHICAGO, July 6.—Heavy clouds, rain, high winds and low visibility were combined again today over the vast un inhabited reaches of Northeastern Can ada and the crew of the Untin Bowler, impatient to continue Jheir flight to Berlin byway of Greenland and Ice land. were forced to remain inactive ' at Great Whale, a Hundson Bay Co. post on the Great Whale River, which ] they reached on Friday. Pilota .Robert Oast and Parker D. j Cramer, and Robert Wood, the reporter of the trip, were under strict orders to make the elements work with rather than against them from the time they left Chicago, and these were confirmed in special messages when It became known here that flying conditions would be unfavorable today. The weather report issued for the flyers in the morning indicated that it would have been little less than fool hardy for a plane to attempt the passage over the dreary wastes of Un gava. It was the plan of the pilota to guide themsplve* over this poorly chartered territory by the streams until they reached Ungava Bav, which they could skirt on a northeastward swing to Port Burwell on Cape Chidiey, .their next stop. Attempt Dangerous. Low visibility would have rendered this attempt dangerous. The weather conditions, as officially described, were: “Center of barometric pressure over Davis Strait moving slowly toward Southwest Greenland coast; lowest barometer reading 29.66 inches at Port Burwell. where weather foggy with southwest wind 12 miles an hour and temperature 32 degrees. Raining at, Hopes, advance, light northwest wind, temperature 36. Raining at Godthaad, temperature 46. light southwest wind. "Forecast: From East, roast Hudson Bay to Burwell mostly moderate north vest to southwest surface winds: prob ably fresh to strong aloft : mostly cloudy with local rains Saturday. From Bur well to Mount. Evans. Greenland, cloudy and rainy with mostly southwest to west winds, moderate to fresh at sur- , face, mostly strong aloft.” No message had been received from ' the 'Untln’ Bowler since the landing at Great Whale two hours before noon Friday. Not, even the hum of the motors had been picked up either at the | WON low-wave station at Elgin or at the Canadian marine radio at Port Burwell. Both points, had broadcast the latest weather report and it was j assumed that the Bowler’s rrew, con fident that its safe situation w/as known, had made up its mind to await clear i skies. Arrange Kuppliea. The period of enforced inactivity has been used in perfecting arrangements for supplies and communications when j the big amphibian reaches Port. Bur well and the Mbunt Evans observatory on Greenland. A message from Prof. William H. Hobbs, who founded the meteorological station and who is now at Ann Arbor. Mich., in nightly communication with his men there, told how the flyers would heralded.' “Aa already stated." he wired, “our operator at Mount Evans has received permission from the Danish govern- 1 ment to send news stories direct to us. i The flyers will come down on the fjord off the landing at Camp Lloyd, which is separated from Mount Evans by a rocky trail 3 miles long. Our aerologist. L. R, Schneider, with his assistant. Evans Schmeling. and a strong Eskimo. Enok. are now camped at the landing and have already set up and maintain in service a field radio outfit for trans mitting to Mount Evans. "Thev have aeveral boats available, which may be of use in landing the plane.. All plans are made to release gasoline and motor oil and assist in . servicing. “Piloting balloons will be sent up. and j a report given of the winds aloft, so that conditions for flying at all levels will be available before taking off.” Hear Nothing Today. Port Burwell, which had reported on Friday hearing the Bowler’s signals per fectly while the landing at Great Wnale was being made, sent reports at two hour intervals today to say nothing was heard from Cramer. If a start had been made this station almost certainly would have heard the noise of the gen erator even If Cramer had failed to broadcast any message. The Weather Bureau made no attempt to tell when conditions would Improve sufficiently to warrant a take-off. Wil liam 8. Carlson, who spent 14 months In Greenland and is now advising the Chi cago Tribune on topographical matters and interpretations of weather maps, advanced a belief that conditions on Greenland would probably be good by the 10th to the 14th of July. This was in no sense a forecast, but merely a suggestion as to what normally would occur as the low pressure area moved on past Port Burwell. 'Copyright, 1»2«> Home Care for The Tuberculous Child 1.

This it one of a series 0/ pergonal reminiscences, after seven yean’ service, during which Gen. Lord supervised the expenditure of more than $25,999,909,099 in Government funds. AS TOLD BY WILLIAM P.

Now, quilt with out benefit of Army tradition, Dawes considered the picks the property of the United States. The picks were there and the Signal Corps needed them. Leave it to Dawes, the Signal Corps got them. That was the Dawes way. But it bucked the line of the age old red tape and the going was slow. As chief of finance of the War De partment I was hax'ing somewhat similar trouble at Washington. When Gen. Dawes returned to the States I j went to see him and we exchanged I view* nnd swapped experience*. Our friendship dated from that visit. He invited me to help him when he be came director of the budget and later he urged President Harding to appoint me hi* successor. Thu* the plow had turned the virgin soil of Federal budgeting when I took office. The soil, however, still required much working. Warren Harding died little more than i a year after I took office. My rela- j Mon*hip with him was more than 1 official: in a personal way it was de lightful. Once a week or oftener I went to the White House to discuss with him the current and prospective state of the Nation's finances. I shall always cherish the memory of those visits. Coolidge "Wanted to Know.” Calvin Coolidge was wholly different in his personality. As Vice President ! he had shown a prodigious appetite for j information about Federal finances. I We of the Budget Bureau were being requested constantly by him for | information concerning Government 1 spendings and revenues and he would utilize in his speeches the information supplied him. I believe he called on the Budget Bureau during his vice presidency more often than all the rest of the President's official family put , together. For a time, it seemed to us. ; he was the world’s most active Vice , President. With Mr. Coolidge. we soon found out, economy was a passion. He had an amazing way of brushing aside all froth and irrelevancles and going surely, quicklv and by the shortest known route j direct to the heart of the subject under ; discussion. He reveled in detail, listen- j ing in silence for considerable periods as I answered hi* inquiries. And he i wanted to know about everythin* He 1 D. C.

I ( Is the best listener I ever ssw. I be lieve. He didn't have a great deal to | say, nothing at all irrelevant. When he i did speak he said something. There was nothing whatever of smallness or cheese paring or niggard ! liness in Mr. Coolidge'a idea of eeon- I omy. He was for reductions, but. he always Insisted upon complete Justifi cation for a reduction. ' He had to be shown. And, though he is a man of few words, it was given me many times to see. in revealing flashes of his able mind that he regarded himself as only the trustee for the Nation; that he felt deep and personal responsibility to the taxpayers for the wise expenditure : of every dollar appropriated by Con i gress. Mr. Coolidge believed, as I did, in getting 100 cents’ worth of work out j of every dollar that left the Federal i Treasury. He believed also, as I did. ! in spending no dollar that could be saved without impairment to the public service. Our ideas dovetailed in the common perspective of our New Eng land ancestry. There was nothing hard in the man Coolidge’s economy, noth | lng little. Coolidge Sympathetic Chief. Boon after President Harding’s i death, and while Mr. Coolidge was still ! staying at a hotel in Washington. I : went to him and offered my resigns | tlon. The relationship between the President and his chief financial ad ! viser is so close and intimate that I : felt Mr. Coolidge would prefer to select his own man for the office. “No,” he said, placing his hand on mv shoulder. “I do not want you to resign. I will not accept your resig nation." And so I retained office and made frequent trips to the White House to ! confer with Calvin Coolidge as I had conferred with Warren Harding. I I found President Coolidge ever attentive. ! sympathetic and wholehearted in his support. “Have you aeen the director of the budget about this?” he would ask of Senators and Representatives who came i to him with requests that certain rec- I ommendations of the budget director be modified or overruled. Their reply, in Mr. Coolidge'a early days as President, almost invariably was in the negative. “Then go see him,” the President would direct, “Take the matter up with him. I will not reverse the bud ! get director.” That sort of backing was 100 per i cent perfect. President Coolidge kept j it, up. In no case did he reverse an | approved budget recommendation. so I far as I can now recall, without dis cussing the subject with the budget director. That attitude on the President’s part, ! led members of Congress to take up such subject* with the Budget Bureau, where they were discussed in friendly ! co-operation. Thus an atmosphere of 1 friendliness was created and the Presi | dent relieved of some of the requests. I When I ended my duties as director 1 of the budget a short time ago I felt that I had scores of friends on Capitol Hill. i (Next: The Revolution in Running j the United States Government, ’’the Best Managed Big Business in the World.’’) I (Copyright.

July 6 —Two kicks from a mule didn't phase Rufus Horton, 20, young farmer of this county, but the third one proved fatal. Horton died today as the result of being kicked last Wednesday night. He discovered the mule in a cotton patch, attempted to drive him out, and received the fatal kick. BANDIT’S BLACK HAT i THE ONLY CLUE LEFT IN REVOLVER BATTLE (Continued From First Page) Albert Aldridge, an escaped convict from the Massachusetts State Peni tentiary. . ... When Aldridge made his death-bed statement he told the police that he knew he was dying and wanted to “con fess everything” so he might go with a clear conscience. When It was learned, however, that he had lied concerning his own identity, police expressed the belief that his identification of his com panion was likewise fictitious. The offi cers who questioned him are convinced he went to his death determined to shield his companion and to aid him In his escape if possible. When Ald ridge broke out of the penitentiary, he was serving a 10-year sentence for aiding another prisoner to escape. The fact that the initials in the hat do not correspond with the name given by Aldridge as that of his companion lent credence to the belief held by police that the man they want is known by some other name. The deal er’s name in the hat is still legible, however, and It was deemed possible that the purchaser might be traced through this means. Pistol ®1 Expensive Make. The pistol which Aldridge had clutched in his hand when he was picked up in the atreet was of an expensive make and nearly new, ac cording to Lieut. Edward J. Kelly, in charge of the Detective Bureau homi cide squad. It* serial number wa* sent to the factory where it was made for j identification purposes. At a late hour last night no word had been received from the factory. Although Aldridge aaid he and his companion came to Washington for the first time Friday, Lieut. Kelly said he believed they had been here for some time. He bases this belief on the fact that in a conversation with Aldridge at the hospital the colored man evinced a knowledge of the city which he could hardly have acquired in so short a time. Acting on the theory that Aldridge at least has been here since he escaped from prison, all rooming houses for colored people irf the city were being canvassed In the belief that one would be found from which two occupants are missing. May Be D. C. Resident. Another possibility—that the man who wounded McDonald is a resident of thia city who has been shielding Aldridge since the latter’s escape—is j being considered. In some quarters the opinion wa* ex pressed that McDonald was personally acquainted with the two men, for, while he was on the way to the hospital, he gasped, “James shot me!" Lieut Kelly, however, was Inclined to scout this theory. He said that McDonald prob ably ascertained their names when he placed them under arrest, and that there was enough difference In their appearance to distinguish which one fired at him. McDonald’s condition was regarded as so serious today that even the police were not permitted to question him. If his condition has Im proved sufficiently tomorrow, this angle of tha cast will be cleared up at that time. In addition to the Information which McDonald la expected to give, police 9 PAPAL AIDE'S CALL STIRS SPECULATION jk Future of U. S.-Vatican Rela tions Is Discussed in Official Circles. By the Associated Brea*. The action of President Hoover in re ceiving Mgr. Fumasconi Biondi. epos ! tollc. delegate in the United States, at the White House last week has revived speculation in official and diplomatic circles regarding the status of Ameri- * i can-Vatlcan relations. There has been considerable dlscus sion In these circles over the fact that Mgr. Biondi delivered to the President i j a copy of the Lateran treaty recently i signed between the Vatican and Italy, in which the latter recognized the sov ereignty of the Papal State. Called Customary Visit. The visit was described in Catholic circles here as the customary visit ! which the delegate pays after the Presi dent assumes office. Mgr. Biondi, who [ has been in Rome In connection with the Mexican church settlement almost continuously since March 4, docs not have any diplomatic rank which is rec ognized by the American Government. While the visit itself was emphasized in high administration circles to indl , cate no intention of recognition of the ' | Vatican by the United States, it was i said at the State Department today I there is no doubt that the United States I now is officially aware of the existence of the sovereignty of the Vatican. | The department, so far as it could be J learned in the absence of Secretary : Stimson and other high officials, did not i arrange the call of MgT. Biondi at the ; White House. Not Held Significant. American officials in Italy fully In formed the department of the progress of the Lateran treaty negotiations while ♦hey took place recently in Rome and the delivery of the copy of the treaty to the President by Mgr. Biondi was not regarded a* significant by most depart ment officials. Heretofore the Washington Govern ment has been extremely cautious in avoiding diplomatic incident* ' which might lead to Intimations of recognition of a state which the United States did not desire to recognize. Several years ago. Foreign Minister Tehitcherin of Russia sent a cablegram direct to the White House suggesting ♦he opening of negotiations looking to ward the establishment of relations be tween the United States and the Soviet Charles Evans Hughes, then Secretary of State, did not reply directly to the Tehitcherin note, but made the attitude of the United States known through a public statement. The State Depart ment had decided that in this way it would avoid suggestions of de facto recognition of Russia, which might fol low communications passing between the Washington and Moscow govern ment*. Revolution Stand Is Cited. In cases where revolutionary parties have sent missions to Washington dur ing a revolt, the State Department has constantly maintained a policy of non recognition of the “special commis sioners.” as they are usually designated There are two k:nds of recognition between governments. One is “de jure” recognition, which is formal and usu ally includes the exchange of diplo matic representatives. On the other hand, there is “de facto” recognition, In which the sovereignty of a state is recogn’zed by the singling out of a particular fact. Officials of the Btat* Department, In illustrating “de facto” recognition, used the hypothetical case of an American citizen becoming in volved In the aftermath of a revolt In another country. Although the United B*ates m'ght not gtve “de Jure” recog nition to this government, the Ameri can representative might appeal to the new administration to fully protect American lives and property. In the opinion of international lawyers, this recognition of police powers would con stitute “de facto” recognition. There was a decided Impression In official and diplomatic circles, however, that there is no intention on the part of the Washington Government to send a representative to the Vatican. Some 80 rears ago the United Btates sent a charge d’affaires to the Holy See and three other representatives followed ip the position or as ministers-resident, until Italy annexed the Vatican State 20 years later.
