WHITEWING SONG-i BIRD—Joseph Rogato, ij for 12 year* a street! cleaner In New York I City, sings with joy as 8 he thinks of his con-! tract to sing for a na-i tional radio network, g Congress Has Overthrown 49 Vetoes Since Its Organization _ 1 ____ 674 Bills Rejected by W Johnson Overruled 15 1 If President Roosevelt’s bonus veto is overridden it will be the 50th overthrow of a veto in the history of Congress. In 146 years, 674 veto messages have been sent to the Capitol. Congress has rebelled 49 times— 15 of them under Andrew John son. Cleveland vetoed more than 3)0 bills and was overridden but twice. Most of his rejections were indi vidual pension measures. There has been a sharp increase in recent years in the frequency with which Congress has rebelled against vetoes. In the 4 years be tween the Johnson and Wilson ad ministrations, only 14 out of 499 vetoes were overridden. In half that time, from Wilson’s first in auguration to date, Presidents have been overridden the same number of times on about one-fifth the number of vetoes. No President <has ever carried his veto to the Capitol and delivered it himself, tho President Harding ap peared before the Senate in 1921 in a fight to prevent passage of the bonus bill. The measure was pass ed, but while the House subse quently overrode the Harding veto the Senate sustained it, killing the measure. President Roosevelt has already experienced the overriding of veto. That happened last year on an ap propriation bill which restored part of the Federal employes’ pay cuts and increased benefits to vet erans. The Adjusted Compensation Act, out of which the present fight grows, was vetoed by President Coolidge in 1924 and passed over the veto, 313 to 78 in the House, and 59 to 26 in the Senate. President Roosevelt has sent 26 vetoes to Congress and lost only one. Hoover vetoed 33 bills and was beaten on three. Coolidge re turned 20 and lost four. Presi dent Flarding was not overridden, but he rejected only five measures. President Wilson lost six time-, on hite House in 146 Years; imes and Roosevelt One 3 3 messages'. Vetoes are overridden by a two third vote of those present in each house. Pension legislation involving former soldiers has repeatedly brought Congress and the White House to grips. Three times World War bonus bills have been vetoed. President Hoover vetoed Spanish War pension increases and increases of the loan base of the adjustment compensation certifi cates. Among the vetoes of former days were two involving infla tionary legislation. President Grant turned down a bill increasing the issues of legal tender notes and national bank notes by $400,000, 000, and his veto was sustain:,! in the Senate. President Hayes vetoed the Bland silver bill, which author ized coinage of silver dollars andi restored their character as legal tender. The House overrode the veto 196 to 73, and the Senate 46 to 19, the day the message was received.

The scheme, which has been evolved by a group of Washing ton "inventors,” proposes the Government shall issue self-liqui dating, discount certificates in stead of new currency or interest bearing bonds. These certificates would be is sued in small denominations and would be negotiable in ordinary trade, as in cash. Each time the holder of it passed it on in trade or business, the new holder would accept it at a standard discount. Its "in ventors” say it would work this wise: The Government would issue a certificate, say of $20. It would bear a discount rate or 1 per cent. If a war veteran, for example, used it to pay his bill at the cor ner store, the grocer would ac cept it less the 1 per cent dis count, or as $19.80. When the grocer paid the for 22 years before his retirement in 1929.

Grange on June 3rd at 8 o’clock. wholesaler, the 1 per cent discount would reduce the certificate to $19.71. On the back of the certificate would be printed a discount table, showing its value to each new holder. When the certificate got so low in value that the discount would make troublesome frac tions, the last holder would take it to a bank and get its present value in cash. One of the "inventors” of this new idea in financing is a promi nent Washington person who be came involved in trouble with the Government over his income taxes. The idea is being patented. It is offered to the Government gratis, its prime author hoping that in return for his generosity the Gov ernment may abate the prison sentence that has been imposed upon him by the courts. Its authors say that the scheme has been seriously studied by the Treasury Department and the Federal Reserve System, "without finding a flaw in it,” and chat it has been called favorably to the attention of President Roosevelt. Veterans May Now Join The Civilian Corps James S. Pittman, manager of the North Carolina regional office of the veterans’ administration, Charlotte, announces receipt of in formation that the president of the United States has directed the prompt expansion of the civilian conservation corps, to include vet erans of either the World War or prior wars; that the director, emer gency conservation work, has au thorized the expansion of the civil ian conservation corps during the period June 15-August 31, 1935, which will include the normal July replacement program to maintain the corps at full strength. He calls attention to the fact that in addition to veterans of the World war, veterans of such as the Spanish-American war the Philippine insurrection, and the Boxer rebellion (or China relief expedition), are to be included in the program as it relates to the veterans’ contingent, civilian con servation corps; and that appli cants therefore must meet the fol lowing requirements: (a) service in the armed forces of the United States during war; (b) honorable discharge from such service; (c) veteran is unemployed; (d) ve teran is a citizen of the' United States; (e) physical fitness, and (f) good character. Mr. Pittman states that while definite figures for the North Carolina quota of veterans are not immediately available, it is contemplated that the number of war veterans to be selected will be from S00 to 600, including both white and colored, and he adds that applications of all ve terans permanently residing in North Carolina should be for warded as promptly as possible to the manager, veterans’ administra tion, Charlotte; that applications (form P-130) must be submitted in duplicate.

Dr. Dietrich P. Fischer, eminent New York food research chemist, recently put tea drinking bugaboos to rout in reporting the results of a year’s experimental research on tea drinking, before the Chemical In dustries Tercentenary Meeting of the American Chemical Society in New York City. According to the report, three generations of white rats consumed only black tea for the liquid part of their normal course of diet in the laboratories. The tea was prop erly brewed, as it should be for the average person, namely a teaspoon tul of tea for each cup, prepared m vigorously boiling water and al lowed to brew for a full five min utes." The animals drank tea daily am ounting to 7.17 percent of their body weight and thrived just as did a group which drank only water. Careful examination of the animals showed that they suffered no ill ef fects. White rats were selected for. the experiments, because of the similarity in nutritional require ments and metabolism existing be tween these animals and human beings. Stated in terms of human experi ence the quantity of tea consumed by the experimental animals would indicate that a 150-pound man could safely drink ten and three quarter pints or 43 four-ounce cups of the beverage daily. Air Mail Soon Will Cross Two Oceans A world-girdling comrrfercial air service, operating on regular schedule across both the Pacific and the Atlantic will begin late this summer, high officials of the postoffice department revealed this week. First link in the international air chain will be the dirigible route of Dr. Hugo Echener, fly ing between Lakehurst, Germany. This government and the German postal administration have agreed to the financial details. Dr. Ecke ner’s new dirigible, a super-Graf Zeppelin, is nearly completed in Germany. The initial flight is expected within a few weeks, with a spe cial parachute mail delivery ar rangement at New York City, and possibly at Paris and other cities. Postage rates will be 40 cents, five cents of which will pay for the regular international stamp, and 3 5 cents for the Zeppelin surcharges. The Zeppelin com pany .will receive most of this latter sum, while the remainder will be divided equally between the German and United States postal services. "Mail from Europe addressed to New York City will be delivered there from the dirigible by para chute,” a Postoffice department spokesman said. "The plan has been so perfected that the ship can toss off a bundle of mail attached to a parachute and virtually drop it into a man’s arms on the field below.” MOTHER HELD, DEATH OF BABE Mrs. Maybelle Blackburn, 24, is being held for grand jury in vestigation relative to the finding the body of her new-born babe in a pit near the home of her fa ther, W.
