(By Associated Preu)-; President Harding took a hand in the legislative program j today in an effort to speed up enactment of tariff and tax legislation by calling Chairman Fordney of the house ways and means committee to the White House to discuss the possibilities of early passage of such laws. . Meanwhile the suggestion was renewed in the senate by Senator Watson of Indiana, a republican member of the finance commitec, that tax revision be placed ahead of tariff legislation. Mr. Fordney informed the president that the republic can committee draft of the permanent tariff bill would be ready by Monday or Tuesday or consideration of the full committee. Senator Watson's suggestion led to floor statements by a half dozen republicans and democratic senators that they would support hit proposal. "The country is in the midst of an intense economic re action from the war" Senator Watson said. "This is not the fault of legislation. "The country can rest assured that both the tariff and revenue bills will pass but my own thought is that we can not revive business until we first repeal the excess profits taxes, and the higher surtaxes upon incomes. "They are depressive influences on business, even though they are not to be paid, because the business depres sion will reduce their yield to the vanishing point.

(By Press) -The racial composition of the population of the United States in 1920, as announced tonight by the Cen sus Bureau shows the country to contain 94,822,431 white persons, 10,463,- 013 negroes, 242,955 Indians, 111,025 Japanese, 6i,b86 Chinese and 9,485 others. The Japanese race exceeded by far the rate of growth in the last ten years of all other classes. Unofficial estimates of the increase in the number of Japanese in the United States, particularly on the Pacific coast, were borne out in the offi cial tabulation which revealed a rate of expansion of 53.9 per cent during tke decade of 1910-20. California absorbed 30,596 of the total growth of 38,868 Japanese in this period. On January 1, 1920, there were 71,952 Jap anese in California. The remainder of the increase was distributed largely in the States of Washington where 17,388 now make their homes; Oregon. 4,151, and Utah, Colorado and New York with between two and three thou sand each. The white population showed only sixteen per cent expansion for the decade and the ne gro 6.S per cent. Both the Indian and Chinese groups dwindled 8.6 per cent and 13.8 per cent, re ipectively. The growth in the white population was considerably less than the rate for the previous decade which was 222 per cent. This decline, the statement said, was due principally to the marked reduction in immigration during the world war. An estimate based on the excess of births over deaths and the excess of immigration over emigra tion showed a difference by only a small fraction of one per cent from the total whites enumerated. nomic woes.

(By Associated Press) Porposals to pay in cash, valuable ter vices cr land, a bonus to former service men; were advocated in the Senate today by Senator McCum ber, Republican, North Dakota, and made the sub ject of a savage onslaught by Senator Borah, Re publican, Idaho. Senator McCumber earlier in the day dis cussed the bonus bill along with other fiscal legis lation with President Harding and after leaving the White House said his conference had given him the feeling tha tthe President expected bonus leg islation to be enacted at the present extra session. Senator borrah launched his attack principally at the method and delay involved in the making of payments under the bill, declar ing it "discreditable to the Republican party." The courageous thing to do," he said, "is to tell the soldiers you can not pay them in cash." ' Senator McCumber, attacking war time profiteering said the ad justed compensation was a matter of justice and that . the word "bonus" had resulted in unjustified criticism. "If the Republican party is courageous and honorable it will send this bill back to committee," Senator Borah asserted, "and do one of two things: tell the country and the soldiers that the bonus can ! not be paid in cash, or face the prospect of doing it This bill an 8EUEH KILLED VJIIEH THEATRE' FALLS INTO DIG EXCflUATIOIl JOHNSTOWN, Pa., June 23.
