Saved Civil Service Commission. Three definite changes in the Gov ernment setup that would have re sulted from enactment of the reorgan ization bill appear definitely side tracked. at least until next year. They are: 1. Abolition of the Civil Service Commission, to he replaced by a single administrator and a seven-member ad visory board 2. Abolition or complete revision of the functioning of the General Ac counting Office 3. Consolidation of possibly a score of existing bureaus dealing with health, sanitation and relief into a new de partment of welfare Nperifir Provisions. While the bill, either in House or Senate form, would have given the President general authority to regroup or abolish other executive bureaus and boards, the three changes listed above were specifically provided for in the legislation Sidetracking of ihc omnibus Senate bill also carried bark to committee the proposal, which met virtually no oppo sition in either house, to give the President six administrative assist ants. A separate bill dealing with this feature alone passed the House last summer and is still pending in the Senate. From the beginning of the present session in January until it was recom mitted to a House Committee last night, the reorganization program un derwent many changes in detail as it moved along its stormy course through both houses. If the House had passed the measure these numerous changes would have been the subject of days of consultation in ronference, and again subjected to verbal battle when the ronference agreement went back to the House and Senate for ratifica tion. Unfinished Business. Assuming it will not be brought up I again during the remaining six or j eight weeks of this session, the entire : subject again becomes a piece of un finished business for the new Congress that meets next January. From a parliamentary standpoint. I however, if it goes over until January. ! bills will have to be reintroduced and taken up anew in committee at both ends of the Capitol, since that will be a new Congress. Strategy of Senate opponents 10 days ago in blocking a motion to em body the omnibus reorganization plan as an amendment to a House bill prob ably paved the way for the sidetrack ing of the measure in the House. If the subject had come from the Senate : as an amendment to a House bill it would have been possible to send it to conference more readily. DR.

One of the last amendments offered to the reorganization bill before it was sidetracked was a proposal by Repre sentative Fish, Republican, of New York, seeking to have the House in dorse George Washington's stand •gainst a third presidential term. It recited that the precedent estab lished by Washington has become a part of this country's form of govern ment, and would have put the House on record as commending it to the consideration of the President.

B > a Sian Corre-poiiden: of The Siar. ROCKVILLE. Mri.. April 9.—Edward S. Jackson. 27. colored, charged with holding up Helen V. Kiendl. 19-year old New York debutante, and robbing her of her pocketbook and 9 in cash near Pour Corners early Tuesday, was released under $5,000 bond today. It was posted by William Dosh. Gaithers burg bondsman. The release of Jackson came after Judges Charles W. Woodward of the Circuit Court had refused yesterday to lower the bond set at a preliminary hearing before Judge Harold C Smith in Police Court on Tuesday. At a habeas corpus hearing in Judge Woodward's chambers Defense Attorneys Joseph B. Simpson jr„ and Miss Vivian V. Simpson declared that Jackson had been employed at th" same groeerv store in the 300 block of T Greet N.W , in Washington, for the last 12 years and lived with his parents in the 600 block of Hobart place N.W. for the last 15 years.

Taxes 'Continued From First Page i are minor in character they are fully possessed of the qualities to precipi tate protracted debate and delay in passage of the bill. The tariff equalization schedule was submitted yesterday afternoon by Sen ator Pope Bv the time the Idahoan has com pleted more than an hour of argu ment in behalf of his plan, rejected earlier by the Finance Committee, he was receiving active support from nearly a dozen other Senators. Show ing plainly that they did not in tend to allow the issue to be railroaded aside without full discussion, the farm bloc finally forced abandonment of plans to pass the tax bill last night and gained the promise of an addi tional two hours time this morning Both Senator Harrison and Majority Leader Barkley urged rejection of the amendment on the grounds the con templated plan should be embodied in a separate bill and come to the Senate only after consideration by the House. Similar strategy was effective earlier in the day in bringing a rejection of an amendment offered by Senator Lodge, Republican, of Massachusetts to reduce the social security taxes levied for old-agp benefits. The Lodge plan would call for a maximum total pay roll tax, shared equally by em ployes, of 5 per cent with this rate applicable after December 31, 1957. Under the present law, the maximum joint tax is 6 per cent and reaches this high point after December 31 194ft Delay Xsked on Issue. The plea of administration leaders to defer this issue until a special study is completed and separate legislation brought in was supported by Senator ; Vandenberg, Republican, of Michigan. I himself a persistent critic of the j mounting old-age reserve fund. The only actual reverse suffered by the committee yesterday was in I acceptance of an amendment by Senator Lre. Democrat, of Oklahoma I 'o prohibit, transportation of Intoxi cating liquors into dry States. Re ’organization __1 Continued From First Page.) to call the roll. From the start it was evident the result would be close, just as it was on Thursday, when Mr. O'Connor failed by a small margin to sidetrack the bill before considering any amendments, by moving to strike the enacting clause. When the last few members hurry ing into the chamber had voted, there was a moment of feverish silence as the clerks tallied the result. Representative Cannon. Democrat of Missouri, an authority on parlia mentary law. broke the silence to sug gest that due to the closeness of the vote, the chair might wish a recapitu lation. He was greeted with cries of, Announce the vote!" Rapping for order, the Speaker glanced at thp tabulation handed up to him by the clerk and announced that, while he had the discretion on a close vote to ask for a recapitulation, he did not believe it was justified in this case. Victory Clinched. Instantly Mr. O'Connor was on his feet wilh the motion to reconsider and lay the reconsideration on the table, the parliamentary way of preventing a later reopening of the decision by which the bill was recommitted. While friends of the measure had little to say after the results became final, opponents were quick to voice their .satisfaction Senator Byrd, Democrat, of Virginia issued a state ment saying: "The defeat is an amazing exhibi tion of the power of an aroused pub lic sent'ment versus the most terriffic pressure on members of Congress from the administration. The issue was non-partisan and Democratic votes accomplished the defeat. "The grab for power from the leg islative to the executive branch and the frank admission that no economy was proposed were the two essential factors. "As the one first to introduce a resolution for reorganization, I will continue my efforts to accomplish the result, preserving the authority of the Congress and with economy and re trenchment as the main objective." Asks Constructive Legislation. Representative Pettengill, Demo crat, of Indiana said. "Now is the time to close ranks and bring out constructive legislation like the tax bill proposed by Senator Harrison and get the people back to work. All the good that was in this bill can come out at the next session of Congress.” Representative Lamneek. Demo crat. of Ohio: "The President said the Senate couldn't be purchased. I say the House can't be purchased." From the National Federation of Federal Employes came a statement of regrei at the action and the circum stances which caused it. “Through force of circumstances not of our own choosing, most impor tant provisions of the civil service were contained in an omnibus bill which became a political issue and although extension of the merit sys tem. extension of classification, set ting up of boards of review and the establishment of a single civil service administrator are in no wnse partisan questions, they were caught in the whirlpool of politics and carried to defeat," the federation said. After defeating the first move to sidetrack the bill early Thursday, ad ministration leaders had been suc cessful for two days in committee of the whole, adopting amendments they had sanctioned as concessions and defeating all other changes pro posed by the opposition. This process had encouraged and raised the hopes of the leaders for ultimate victory, but these nuiperous amendments were decided by standing or teller votes and did not reveal the full strength registered by the oppo sition, when the committee of the whole reported the much-amended measure to the House and the roll was called. Other Bills rending. There are still pending in the Sen ate three features of the reorganiza tion plan, passed bv the House as sep arate bills last Summer before the Senate decided to put the whole pro gram in an omnibus measure. While ! it would still be possible to revive the subject by having the Senate take up ; those measures, it is not likely that move will be made, in view of the fact i it took the Senate the entire month of March to bring the omnibus bill to a vote. The bill got through the Sen ate by the close margin of 49 to 42 For six hours prior to the vote last ; night, the committee in charge of the bill offered and had adopted a long series of amendments to the civil serv ice and general accounting sections of the bill, which leaders hoped would lessen opposition to final passage. | The committee, however, defeated motion* to preserve the existing Civil HEAVY SENTENCE ON WHITNEY ASKED Dewey Memorandum Gives Judge Resume of Activities.

Observers at the Capitol believed this amendment would gain support for the final passage of the bill, and it was the only amendment adopted in committee of the whole on which a separate vote was demanded in the House. It was again retained in the bill by a viva voce vote. Bankhead Hits Propaganda.

Former President Terms Action America's Most ‘Heartening News.’ Bs the Associated Press. SAN FRANCISCO. April 9—For mer President Herbert Hoover. Just home from Europe, today hailed as America's most "heartening news" the shelving of the administration re organization bill, which opponents charged would give President Roose velt virtual dictatorial powers. Addressing a homecoming mass meeting last night on "Challenge to Liberty, 1938," Mr. Hoover departed from his prepared text to comment on the bill, which the House of Repre sentatives voted to return to com mittee. The move usually means death of a measure. "No more heartening news ever came to the American people than when the House of Representatives, regardless of party, voted down the reorganisation bill.” said Mr. Hoover, long a Vigorous critic of the admin istration and "planned economy.” The former President, arrorded an ovation by a crowd of 4.000 which overflowed Municipal Opera House, said Representatives who "voted down” the meausc "ought to receive from us a vote of gratitude." He dropped no hint of any political plans. Declaring America's first task is to “restore genuine self-respecting jobs” to the 12.000.000 he said were unem ployed. Mr. Hoover said New Deal "planned economy" itself was "mak ing the one-third ill-fed and ill clothed.” "It is nonsense to say that either big or little business is on strike," he said, "it is not so. Business is yearn ing to sell automobiles and new suils of clothes. It is the people who are sea red. "Big business or little business is not scared to take on men if anybody will give them an order for goods," * * * "We should apply one test, to th'e whole gamut of Government action. Does this action stifle initiative and en terprise? Does it cost men their jobs'1 I am well aware of the importance of reforms. I am still more aware of the misery of 12.000.000 unemployed. And I am well aware of the dangers to the very institutions of democracy from an economic machine dislocated in this fashion '' Republic iContinued From First Page t Maj. Curley did aid Chief Swifter in selecting 40 men. and "at least 32" were company employes In the absence of Chief Swifter on July 11. it continues, Maj Curley took command of the police force and countermanded ail previous orders. "At approximately 11 o'clock," the report says, "three persons received fatal injuries and an undetermined number were injured by gunfire and gas fumes when special and regular police under the command of Maj. Curley dispersed a crowd of strikers and atrike sympathizers at C I O. headquarters. All of those skilled or injured were strikers, strike sympa thizers or bystanders. None of the police sustained any injuries." Reinstatement of Employes. The board dealt with reinstatement and reimbursement of Republic em ployes in three categories. Twenty-seven employes, reputedly the victims of discriminatory dis charge. were ordered reinstated with back pay less the amounts, if any. they earned during specified lay-off or discharge periods Employes of the Canton Tin Plate Mill were ordered reimbursed from May 4, and at Ma.ssilon. from May 19. when lockouts were instituted. And finally: On application, tiie company was directed to offer reinstatement with back pay. less earnings from April 8. 1938. to date of offer of reinstatement, to those employes who went out on strike May 25, and thereafter at Can ton. Massilon, Youngstown, Warren and Cleveland. The order holds that tlie company must dismiss all employes hired after the stiike if this is neces sary in order to reinstate the strike:s and those laid off or discharged for union activities. If a reduction of force does not leave sufficient positions available, the positions must be appor tioned in accordance with the com pany's usual plan Those for whom there are no positions go on a prefer ential re-employment list.

APPEAL FOR JOBLESS MADE BY MAYOR Declares Third of Persons in Florida Eligible Are Unable to Get Work. Mayor R. E L. Chancey of Tampa, Fla , declared last night a third of the persons in Florida cities eligible for relief work were unable to get jobs on existing projects. He made the assertion in support of a plea of the United States Conference of Mayors for a *3,000,000.000 relief appropriation for the fiscal year 1939. Mayor Chancey called on President Roosevelt yesterday with other mem bers of the conference's Executive Committee, "It is quite a problem.” the Tampa mayor said. "Probably one-third of those eligible for relief work are unable i lb get it. I think the situation in | Tampa is illustrative of that in other ! Florida cities.” In the peninsula's resort country, he pointed out, the relief problem grows evpn the more acute when the Winter season ends The amount which cities are re quired to spend in connection with W. P A. activities- the Floridian said, has become an almost unbearable burden. In addition, he said, Tampa is spending about a quarter-million dollars this year on relief outside of its participation in the W. P. A. pro gram. ... ■ ■ ■ •- --- DELINQUENCY BLAMED ON LACK OF PLAY AREA Removal of Judiciary Square Space Makes Problem More Acute, Council Told.
