Anglo-American Trade Pact
Is Expected to Be Chief
Topic Discussed.
Ww the Associated Press.
HYDE PARK, N. Y„ June 21 —
President Roosevelt shifted briefly to
day from the clean-up work after a
session of Congress to an important
discussion of what's going on in Eu
Joseph P. Kennedy, home from his
Ambassador’s post in London, was on
the Chief Executive's engagement list
for a morning call.
The terse White House disclosure
that Kennedy would head for the pres
idential study on his second day back
in this country gave no hint of what
course the conversation would take.
* Persons close to the situation, how
ever, expected the president and his
trusted adviser to discuss the pending
Anglo-American trade treaty and
what Mr. Kennedy has observed in
general during his six months as a
Before and after Mr. Kennedy's cail
Mr. Roosevelt had much work to do on
bills passed by Congress in the final
days before last week's adjournment.
Hitting his stride yesterday, follow
ing a week end cruise down the New
England coast and up the Hudson
River, the President clipped 43 meas
ures off his "awaiting action" list, but
scores more awaited his signature or
Thirty-six of the bills on which he
took action yesterday were approved,
seven were vetoed.
Approves Wheat Acreage Hike.
Among those which received his fa
vor was one increasing 1939 wheat
* acreage allotments under the present
farm act from 42,000,000 to 55,000,000.
Another authorized, but appropri
ated no funds for $37,605,850 of rivers
and harbors work. Fifty-two con
struction projects and 66 surveys of
proposed projects were authorized by
the measure.
One bill vetoed would have in
creased from $30 to $40 monthly the
benefits for totally and permanently
disabled veterans whose disability was
, not connected with their military
service. In returning the measure to
Congress unsigned, Mr. Roosevelt ex
pressed belief it would cause dissatis
faction among other classes of vet
erans entitled to benefits.
The President also rejected a bill
to place the foreign commerce service
on the same pay, grade, promotion
and retirement as the State Depart
ment's diplomats and consuls. The
Foreign Commerce Service, a branch
* of the Commerce Department, main
tains offices throughout the world for
the promotion of American trade.
Vetoes Bridge Measure.
In two more vetoes the President
expressed dislike for exempting bridges
and the bonds issued in connection
with them from all taxation.
Among other important bills still
• waiting presidential action were those
fixing minimum wages and maximum
hours for interstate industry, provid
ing for a lending and spending relief
* program and the deficiency appropria
tion measure which contains money to
etart the billion-dollar naval shipbuild
ing program.
The Chief Executive, in rollicking
good humor, came ashore from the
yacht Potomac, told an aide to send
two stenographers to his home, held
a brief conference with reporters, then
motored away to his family estate—
and w'ork.
At the press conference the Presi
dent first joked with the reporters
about having given all his news to his
