BILLION CUT (Continued From Page One) ment—also is to be hit hard by the economy push under present plans. The program in Postmaster Gen. Farley's department embraces a dual purpose, cutting expenses ar.i wiping out the department's cus tomary deficit. During the fiscal year ending next June 30, the gross expenditures of the department are estimated at S707.500.000 and the revenue a' S5F1.000.000, leaving a gross defi ciency cf $126,000,000. The program laid before Farley is understood to involve curtailments well above ’he SIOO.COO.OOO mark, which will nee*" sarily involve dropping of persjr. nel and will probably lead to ri - newed consolidation of rural routes. Sharp cuts also have been order el for the agriculture department, involving abolition of much of Its experimental work and the green houses in the capital which supply roses to the White House. Huge Savings The cc.nmerce department is to be virtually re-made under present tentative plans, with most of the work of its foreign and domestic commerce bureau going to the at taches abroad of the state depart ment; most of the domestic offices eliminated except in federal reserve districts: the Bureau of Mines transferred to the interior depart ment. and commodity divisions which study Individual commodities abandoned or consolidated. These savings, added to the $450. 000.000 which it is intended to save on veterans’ costs, will approximate the billion dollar goal, the admin istration calculates. Under the setup, it Is panned the*, railroads shall contribute more lar gely to their own regulation to take the burden from the government; that water shipping shall pay a ton nage tax to pav for waterways and their maintenance, and that ba lk ing shall help pay for its regulation.

I MANY STORES ' REPORT TRADE ON MEASE (By the Associated Press) The jingle of coins in cash regist ers and the rustle of bank notes in long-empty pockets accompanied the gurgle of beer today as many parts of the country announced: "Business is better " Thousands Get Joba Thousands knew again what it is to have a job; many stores report ed increased business as beer, >nr.l mg weather, and the approach of Easter combined to stir demand, brewers everywhere rubbed their hands and grinned happily; news papers in many cities had more ad vertisements; Dun isi Bradstreets, trade journal, reported a general pick-up in business. The friends of beer were prepar ed to attribute most of it to that beverage, a contention that beers foes were exjiected to dispute. Com prehensive data was lacking, but antl-prohibitiorlsts painted with pride to iigures from several ciMes. In New York, for instance, wnere thousands were talking of mtn L^* mg re-employed and equipment p *r chased. the city officials announced the receipt of $200,000 in fees lor permits to sell beer. Beer advertise ments swelled the newspapers. Other Cheery Note* At Chi< go. the nation’s second largest city, the H raid and Exa miner said merchants agreed the first day of beer was one of the greatest spending sprees since the 1929 crash. This, however, was a. tributed partly to improved weath er. San Francisco sounded a ch<»eiy note, with re-employment estimated as high as 7.000: newspapers carry ing more advertisements than for a year and a half, and business gen erally reported improved. Tire em ployment gain in Los Angeles was estimated unofficially at 10.000. Louisville. Ky., where estimates of re-employment ran as high as 1. 000. saw advertising swell two news papers to the largest week-day edi tions of the year. It was mostly Easter business and there were 'ow' beer advertisements. Work Night and Day A Washington paper had the big gest volume of ads in any regular issue this year or any time last spring. St. Louis. Columbus, Cin cinnati. and Cleveland all saw much beer advertising, as did many other cities. Some newspapers adhered to a policy of excluding beer advertis ing.

Tenn., April 8 —UP) —Clearing skies today led low landers in flooded sections of Mis sissippi, Arkansas and Tennessee to hope the swollen waters had done their worst but levee dyna miting and the appearance of buf falo gnats complicated matters. The refugee problem threatened to assume major proportions should the water continue its stand over the thousands of acres of low country it has invaded. Estimates of the number made temporarily homeless placed the figure at 1,500. Most of these, however, are negro farmers used to abandoning their homes in the spring and living with friends or relatives until floods recede. Levees at a number of places particularly near Webb and Sum ner. Miss., showed signs of weaken ing under the pressure of the water, but 300 negro convicts from Parchman prison farm were sent into the district to bolster them. So far no major breaks have oc curred. A number of attempts have been made to dynamite levees in both Mississippi and Arkansas. but guards that patrol the levees in times of high water have frustrat ed most of these. Levee guards at several places m Mississippi have exchanged shots with men who apparently were trying to destroy levees to protect their own land. The buffalo gnats that follow I the water, however, have become an annoying- problem, especially at Sumner. Smudges are kept burn ing. HO HURT (Continued From Page One» 5 4-5 seconds.

April 8. >#>—Stocks ended the w;ek with a pleasant flurry upward today as trade news ' tended to strengthen Wall Street’s current mood of restrained cheer fulness. A larger than seasonal gain in freight traffic, stronger scrap steel prices, the “beer boom," intimations that the government frowned on j cheapening the currency and fa vored public works expansion, seem ed to impress the market. Most of the rise occurred in the last halt hour. Short covering probably con tributed a libera! projiortion of the buying, but there was a fair run up for all groups. Steel and railroad shares were prominent in the spurt. Cascadings for the week ended April 1 rose 18.738 over the prec idl ing period: most of the pickup wjs in loadings of miscellaneous frieight. It was the third successive weekly j i rise and the deficiency compared with a year ago was cut to 9.2 per j cent. Previous evidence that the motor car manufacturers had increased ac tivity since the banking holiday was strengthened by the March prod.c tion estimate of the national auto mobile chamber of commerce. Out put for the last month was set at 81,370 units, about 8.000 fewer than in February, but the chamber said production in the latter part of March had been larger than anti cipated. First quarter figures were 13 per cent under a year ago. Genera! Motors March sales to i American consumers totaled 47 43*5 cars, or about 5.000 above February and nearly equal to March, 1932. First quarter volume in this bracket was nearly up to a year ago. which the corporation's earnings for the past three months will doubtless re flect. The showing was of partic ular interest as regards dividend possibilities. Monday brings u. s. steel corp orations March 31 unfilled tonnaee statement. A decrease is naturally anticipated because of the contrac tion this Industry underwent lost month, but th* markets concern 1 is more with moderate prospects. Stronger scrap quotations over the : past two or three weeks and obvious benefits to steel makers accruing from a larger nubile works program, if such is decided on an anti-dc flationary measure, appear as ihv orable sign posts. CHICAGO GRAIN CHICAGO. April 8— ifl*—Re port'. that Pres. Roosevelt op posed currency inflation went par allel with an abrubt decrease of speculative demand for grains to day and with tumbles In prices. Indications of general rains over the United States winter wh-tt belt gave some impetus to sellers.

Wheat closed weak. 3-8 to 3-4 under yesterday's finish, corn 5-8 to 718 down, oats 1-4 to 1-2 off. and provisions unchanged to a set back of 2 cents. Prom the outset, distrust of moves to inflate currency vv.. among the chief reasons which traders put forward to explain reverse action of wheat values. In striking contriM vwth pur* purchasing of late for the public. today's wheat business lacked evidence of any vigorous buying support. During much of the time, dealings were mainly of a local character, and were re stricted to professional traders. A maximum fall of a cent a bushel in wheat and 1 1-2 cents in com took place, desoite assertions by some experts that moisture now in drought districts would be of but slight benefit to crops. Re ports that spring planting in winter-killed areas of the Pacific northwest v/r.uld b:1 Ires than *x pected failed to act as a market stimulus Many traders said they were awaiting developments at Washington as to agricultural leg islative progress.
