One Reported Killed in March
on Cairo as Strike
By the Associated Press.
CAIRO, January 27.—A widespread
strike of students precipitated a clash
today between demonstrators and po
lice at Damanhour.
One student was reported to have
been killed, but this could not be
verified immediately.
The Damanhour clash arose as a
heavy force of Egyptian cavalry
dashed to nearby Giza while 1.200
shouting students of Giza University
marched on Cairo in connection with
the strike.
Bridges Are Opened.
The bridges between Giza and Cairo
were opened in an attempt to block
an entry by the students into the city.
Large forces of police centered at
the bridgeheads.
“ignoring the counsels of their lead
ers, the students went out on strike
everywhere. One group at Bulak
made a bonfire of the furniture of the
School of Applied Arts.
Cairo police were reported to have
fired on rioters at Mansura and
Damanhour. wounding an undeter
mined number.
The student strike came just as a
deadlock threatened proposed British
Egyptian negotiations.
Nahas Re erses Stand.
Nahas Pasha, leader of the Wafd
Nationalist party which has been
campaigning for greater freedom from
Britain, had agreed to formation of
a neutral cabinet to replace the re
signed government of Premier Tewfik
Nessim Pasha, and to immediate
opening of negotiations with Britain.
Nahas took a new stand, however,
insisting the Wapdists must have a
majority representation in a new cabi
net or any delegation formed to nego
tiate with the British—a demand op
posed by other Egyptian parties.

Finance Committee to Consider
Proposed 5-Tear Building
Four teaching vacancies in the pub
lic schools were to be tilled this after
noon at a special meeting of the
Board of Education, which was to be
followed by a meeting of the Finance
Committee to consider the proposed
five-year building program.
Three vacancies on the faculty at
Wilson Teachers’ College were to be
filled and a head of the department
of English, to succeed Miss Sarah E.
Simmons, retired, was to be named.
Dr. Frank W. Ballou, superintend
ent, was to make his recommendations
to a closed meeting of the Personnel
Committee, of which Robert A. Maurer
is chairman, immediately before the
board session.
At the last meeting Dr. Ballou
pointed out that there is no one in
the school system at present who has
had sufficient supervisory experience
to take Miss Simmons’ place and in
dicated he would select an outstanding
teacher to be promoted in spite of
lack of such training.
The appointments were to be made
today, so there will be no vacancies
when the schools enter the second
semester next Monday.

Appropriation $2,237,000,000.
The new law merely authorizes an
appropriation of $2,237,000,000 and
makes available $254,000,000 already
in the bonus certificate fund to pay
the bonus 1945 maturity value in
$50 cashable bonds. An actual appro
priation will have to be made later in
some regular supply bill.
President Roosevelt did not men
tion taxes in his brief veto message,
but said his objections were the same
now as they were last May when, he
vetoed the Patman inflationary-pay
ment measure. Then, he declared
failure by Congress to ’’provide addi
tional taxes” to pay the bonus would
"in itself and by itself alone warrant
disapproval” of the measure.
Only a brief debate preceded the
Senate's action. Senator Hastings,
Republican, of Delaware, chided the
Democratic leaders for deserting the
President at a crucial hour. He said
the Democrats had voted for many
measures which the President de
manded. even though they did not
like them.
"I beg of you.” said Hastings, "not
to desert your great leader now, when
he is right.”
nasimss mcm icw.
Speaking in support of the veto,
Hastings said the Secretary of the
Treasury had warned the Senate Fi
nance Committee the Government
would need another billion dollars
during the present fiscal year and
$4,000,000,000 more than the budget
estimates for the next fiscal year. He
said such expenditures would bring
the national debt up to more than
$36,000,000,000 in the next fiscal year.
"I have been accused of many
things,” said the Delaware Senator,
"when I have opposed the President.
This is the one time I know that the
' President is right.
"I should think that he would be
in tears when he finds the vast ma
jority of the Democrats in the Senate
voting against him. What has put the
President on the same side as the
Chamber of Commerce of the United
States, the National Economy League
and the Liberty League in this fight?
I wonder if it is true that the indus
trial autocrats now have control of
this administration?
"Did entrenched greed have any
thing to do with this veto message?
Of course not. I'll say it, even if
the Democratic leaders in the Senate
will nnt
"If it had been a Republican Presi
dent who had returned this bonus
bill with a veto, you Democrats would
have shouted that the interests and
the Liberty League controlled him.
It makes a lot of difference who is
in the White House some times."
As soon as the Senate met, Senator
King. Democrat, of Utah, an oppon
ent of the bonus bill, insisted on
having read to the Senate the veto
message of last May when Mr. Roose
velt disapproved the Patman inflation
ary honus bill. At that time the Sen
ate sustained the President’s veto.
The veto message sent to the Cap
itol last Friday disapproving the new
baby bond bill, was read first. In his
message the President had referred
members of Congress to his earlier
feto of the Patman measure.
Given Deep Consideration.
At the conclusion of the reading
of the message. Senator Lewis, said
it was apparent the President had
given deep consideration to the sub
ject. He said Mr. Roosevelt had been
actuated by the noblest purposes In
carrying out what he considered to be
his duty.
Senator King asked the Illinois Sen
ator whether the arguments used by
the President would prevail on him to
vote to sustain the veto.
Lewis replied that as the President
had been guided by his conscience, so
would he be guided by his own con
Before the debate opened, Senator
Dr. Ellison Predicts “Real
Prohibition” Here Under
Guyer Bill.
Concluding a series of three radio
addresses over WRC on "Medical
Science Versus Beverage Alcohol," Dr.
E. M. Ellison, president of the United
Dry Forces, last night predicted that
"real prohibition ultimately will be
established in the District of Colum
bia. through the Guyer bill now pend
ing in Congress.”
"Repeal," he declared, "is doomed."
Dr. Ellison discussed at some length
the medical and scientific effects of
alcohol on the human system. He
quoted from a recent report of the
National Association of Physicians in
Germany, specializing in nervous and
mental disorders, to the effect that
these doctors "unanimously voted that
any claim for beer as being helpful by
virtue of its calories is an attempt
to mislead the people."
“Due to its alcoholic content, ac
cording to them,” continued Dr. Elli
son, "beer can by no means be re
garded as a true article of food, or
even harmless.
“The consumption of beer or of any
other alcoholic beverage, even in small
quantities not ordinarily considered
intoxicating." declared the physician,
"reduces personal resistance to all
kinds of diseases, shortens life and is
productive of crimes and accidents.

CLEVELAND, January 27 (>P).—
Newton D. Baker, former Secretary

speech, said today:
“Gov. Smith is a great Democrat.
He has the respect and affection of
a great part of the democracy of
America. What he has said will be

Harrison, co-author of the measure,
had predicted there would be no more
than three shifts from the previous
Senate passage ballot.
Forty Senators voted last year to
sustain President Roosevelt’s veto of
the inflationary Patman plan.
Opponents of immediate payment of
the certificates continued their battle
until the last. Henry H. Curran, di

President Roosevelt and members of
Congress today received a resolution
urging establishment of a peimanent
Federal housing agency and appro

to assist State and local organizations
to engage in low-rent housing projects
for the low-income groups.
The resolution was adopted yester
day at the closing session of the three

Housing Conference. It also sought
separation of agencies dealing with
public and private housing because
"the great need for public low-rent
housing for millions of families, who

enterprise must not be confused by
private enterprise to build homes for
