(UP).—President-elect Roosevelt j is forging steadily ahead with work on a general economic pro-i gram with friends convinced that I it contemplates decisive action for I tariff revision as soon as the war I debt negotiations are cleared away. It is the opinion among some of j his friends here that readjustment ] of the tariff, which he regards as! one of the necessary steps toward world-wide economic recovery, j will be a major topic of discussion J with delegates from the nations! that seek reopening of the war I debt question. It was regarded as highly sig-j nificant that Washington dis-| patches reported the foreign ! groups would come here irnmedi-i ately after March 4, 7iot only to 1 take up debts but "other economic | matters" as well. The tariff, it is believed, will be the first on the agenda in the latter category. In this connection, it was per sistently rumored that the nego tiations might develop into a' world economic conference sucu j as had been arranged for London later in the year. Roosevelt maintained a com- | plete silence on the ilebt matter and others as well in spite of a i two-day conference with Bernard M. Baruch. New York banker and j adviser. Baruch was summoned j here from Washington to go over ; the complete economic program | which includes proposed railroad relief measures. Sources close to Roosevelt in dicated he was unruffled by the flood of reports from foreign na tions as to requests and demand.* ( they might make when their rep resentatives sit down with him in separate conferences to discuss the situation. Rumors of drastic proposals on the part of debtors looking to can cellation and sharp revision were regarded by some of his friends simply as "trial balloons" to de termine sentiment in this country and in the hope that they might tend to smooth the way toward obtaining the best possible terms in the bargaining. Appearance of both Baruch! and Hines at Warm Springs gave rise to cabinet speculation, altho word came from the Roosevelt j home that the matter was "still up in the air." Observers feel that Roosevelt will settle down in earnest to a consideration of cabinet appoin tees as soon as James A. Farley, Democratic national chairman, an<| Col. Louis McHonry Howe.! confidential secretary, arrive here j Monday morning.

"Dixie,'' fox terrior mascot of the Hendersonvilic fire depart ment for 14 years, lias answered his last call. lie was struck by a passing: truck yesterday afternoon just outside the fire department dooijj as he followed the "big red wa gon" on a call, and death followed shortly afterward. He died 'in line of duty' and 'with his boots on' and the members of the de-1 partment this morning: prepared I to pay their last respects to the faithful animal with appropriate services on the back lawn of the city hall. "Dixie" joined the fire depart ment 14 years ago next month, and at that time was a puppy of about five or six months. He quickly learned his duties, and up until about a year ago when the infirmities of old age began to tell on him, he answered every call riding on the fire truck with his boss, Assistant Chief Alex Hill. At the time he joined the de partment the old city hall on Main street was the site of the city government. "Dixie" served through the old city hall period, followed the department to the temporary quarters on Church street when the new city hall was being built, although he was loath to leave the old building and fre quently made trips back to Main street when the building was be ing torn down. Chief Hill said this morning that "Dixie" would (frequently visit the old building, 'but that a fire call would always bring him to the department head quarters on the run. When the new city hall was oc cupied he seemed perfectly at home, and was always ready to have his back scratched by anyone .who came into the department of ifice. He paid no attention to the i i ordinary phone calls, but when the j I big beli rang to announce a fire j he was always ready to go. i He had lost the sight in one 1 eye and was almost blind in the ; other, and this fact cost him his life. As he followed the truck out yesterday afternoon he was struck on his 'blind side' by a passing truck. CECIL COFFEY RANKS WELL AT COLLEGE Mr. and Mrs. R. A.

(UP) —Reconstruction Finance Corp oration today reported to the house detailing loans totaling $!. 171,984,307 for the six months, including $80,193,7.r>2.83 during December to banks. Building and Loan Associations, agricultural and livestock credit corporations anj roalroads. WASHINGTON. Jan. 2fl. HIP) The senate last night suddenly broke one of its most persistent filibusters when it passed the Glass bank reform bill. The measure, designed to effect wide reforms in the nation's bank ing structure and to curb legisla tion, has been tied up 21 days in the senate.. One of its prime pur poses is to curb speculation. Sen ator Lonpr. Dem., La., and Senator Thomas. Dem., Okla., held it in the balance for days with a fili buster against its branch banking provisions. The vote last night was 54 to 0. Last eveninr, as debate dragged on. Senator Carter Glass, Dem , Va., sponsor of the mea^ur-*. threatened to impog" cloture ai:d obtained more than the necersarv 16 signatures on his petition. It was unneeded. however, for the senate arrived at a unanimous consent agreement whereby it was to stay in session until the bill could be voted upon with debate limited to ten minutes on each amendment. The Glass measure now goes to the house whore its outlook is said to be gloomy. Long predicted the doath of the measure in the house. The bill, broadly, permits state branch banking where state laws allow it, gives the federal reserve system a check-rein on specula tion. requires all federal reserve member banks to divest them selves of security affiliates, and sets up a $125,000,000 fund to re lieve depositors of closed banks. It represents the effort of Sen ator Carter Glass. Dem., Va., once secretary of treasury and again mentioned for that important post, to curb the speculative orgy in which many banks participated and which he regards as a con tributing factor in the 11)29 crash. Loner was active again yester day along with Thomas and Bur ton K. Wheeler. Dem., Mont., sill three leaders in the inflationist movement. Threats by Glass to seek clo ture against brought a counter threat from Thomas that he would oppose confirmation of the Vir ginia senator if he is nominated for secretary by President-elect Roosevelt. "Let me say here that if clo ture is brought up a second time by the senator from Vilrginia ho can just as well prepare another cloture petition and have it ready when his name comes before this body for confirmation," Thomas said. "I have waited in this bodv ten years to have an opportunity ol seeing the senate discuss the money question. That opportuni ty has come." Voting against the measure were four Democrats, four Re publicans and one Farmer-Labor. (Continued on page tnree) m cm Name the world's nocthernmosl Wi.:*.,....
