OBUILDING EXPECTS OMNIBUS BILL Framed by House at Present Session, in Which Local Item be Included. That an appropriation for the erec tion of a postoffice here depends on the action of the house in enacting or refusing to enact an omnibus bill is the word given by Congressman If. M. Jacoway in a letter to Jo Frauenthal, who wrote to inquire about the status of Conway’s claim. Mr. Jacoway intimates that enact ment of an omnibus bill, which in cludes all manner of sundry appro priations, is not improbable as no bill of this nature has been passed since 1913. The chances of the bill and with it the Conway appropriation furthei hinge on the attitude of the Harding administration in its effort to seduce governmental expenditures. With Director of the Budget Dawes sit ! ting hard on all expenses, the hope of the bill's passage is not so good and virtually rests on the possibility that the house will override the rec ommendation oftfhe bureau and pro ceed to enact the customary appro priations. Little Rock in its claim for new government buildings is in exactly the same situation as Con way. Mr. Jacoway will watch the house for indications of what will be done with the move to pass an omnibus bill. In the event it is framed foi presentation, his efforts will be di rected toward inclusion of the Con way and Little Rock appropriations in the measure. His letter to Mr Frauenthal is as follows: “Dear Sir and Friend—Replying to your letter of recent date, I beg to inform you that there has been nc public buildings omnibus bill since 1913. This is the reason that it has been impossible to get the commit tee to take definite action on the pro posed new building for Conway. “It has not been definitely decided as yet whether there will be an om nibus bill during the present session of congress. However, I am keeping closely in touch with the committee and will take this matter up furthei if it is decided to report such a bill now. 1 will advise you as soon as 1 am informed in this respect. “With kindest personal regards, I am, yours very truly, “II. M. Jacoway. “Washington, MaVch 29.” LEVERETT AT ARKADELPHI A. E. V.
