Growing concern over the future of tne aaa was expressed by offi cials inrtax as they pressed rheir studv of i he Supreme Court s invalidation of the N. R. A. No formal comment was foudcom ing from the Department of Agricul ture, hui some officials were known to be devoting almost rheir entire rime 1o working on plans designed to tore - si all a passible collapse. While il was indicated yesterday that rhe A. A. A amendments, when rewritten, would change only some phraseology of the original agricul tural adjustment act, it was believed today that rhe amendments may in clude substantial alterations of rhe present law.

It had been announced that he would not answer questions on N. R. A., and once he refused. But when a reporter in quired as to the threatened coal strike he changed his intention. That, he said, was much like many other problems created by the Su preme Court’s invalidation of N. R. A. But. he continued, the real news did not lie In Washington, but throughout the cities, lowns and communities which make up rhe Nation. He mentioned a resolution adopted earlier in the day by the cotton tex tile indiisirv. urging continued observ ance of the code, and added the question was what, they could do if a small percentage of the industry departed frbm the standards estab lished by that compact.
