SUPPLY GAINS Summer Help To Lessen Strain Upon The Soviet Capital By EUGENE LYONS United Press Staff Correspondent MOSCOW, June L'9 (UP)—Dis tinct improvements in the avail ability of foodstuffs ami clothes are apparent in the Soviet capital and many other large cities. This, coupled with a natural lessening of the strain of living conditions as summer approaches, has put Moscow in a more cheer ful mood. Optimistic reports on spring sowings, the opening of many new "commercial" shops, and let-up in arrests, all contributed toward cheerfulness. A tour of shops here disclosed larger stocks of tenuis than a year, or even six months, ago. Most had a brisk, businesslike air, in contrast with the depressing char acter of these places a few months ago. The appearance of more goods, however, does not mean that dis tress is ended. Th»* portion of Moscow's population able to avail itself of the change is extremely small. Prices aiv at a level which only the best-paid engineers, spe cialists, writers drawing royalties, can afford. The mass of the population must depend on their rations. o?i The meals provided by their fac tories, offices and schools, with only an occasional supplementary purchase at the free market or commercial shop prices.

To Name Further Aides To Handle Sales Tax Matters Noble And Maxwell Are Conferring Regarding Appointees The Times-News Bureau Sir Walter Motel RALEIGH, June 29.—Final es timates as to the number of addi tional employes that will have to he employed by the sales tax divi-' sion of the state department of revenue on July 1, when the law goes into effect, are being worked over by Executive Assistant Com missioner of Revenue M. C. S. Noble. Jr., and Commissioner of Revenue A. J. Maxwell, Dr. Noble said today. Indications are that aproximately 45 employes will bo added to this new division July 1, while some more may be added later if it becomes necessary. Dr. i Noble is busy today groins: over the hundreds of applications that | have been filed, selecting the 45 j that will be chosen. Between 600 I and 1.000 applications for jobs in j this division have been received i in the last two months. No steps have been taken as yet with regard to the reorganiza tion of any of the other depart ments, Dr. Noble said, since both he and Commissioner Maxwell have been so b'^sy in potting the new sales tax division organized that they have n >t had any oppor tunity to get into the other divi sions as yet. The apnointment of the six au tomobile license inspectors author ized by the 1933 general assem bly. was announced Wednesday by Dr. Noble. The jobs of the 1 fi automobile license inspectors au thorized under the old law were abolished by the 1933 assembly.

Sought At London Ky HERBERT MOORE United Press Staff Correspondent LONDON', Juno 29.— ((JP)—A modified agreement on wheat acreage reductions for two years was believed in sight again today, following tlic receipt of new in structions by the Australian dele gation to the international wheat eonferen ce. The Australians kept the details of their instructions secret, but it was undeistood they indicate Aus ralia is now agreeable to acreage restrictions, with a few essential reservations and safeguards, and provided that '.lie European wheat producing countries agree to limit their crops. This last reservation apparently was aimed at Soviet. Russia, the chief European wheat-growing country. > Despite (hese cheering signs, however, Premier iv. B. Bennett, of Cnada, gaev an equivocal an swer when asked if it were true an agreement had been reached among the "bi» four"—the United States. Canada, Australia and Ar gentina. "That woul dbe putting it a bit strongly." he replied. The United States and Canada apparently are in complete accord on a pin to reduce wheat plant ings for two years, and are co operating in bringing pressure to bear on the others for an early accord. Stanley Bruce, chief Austrian delegate, on receipt of new cabled intsructions from Canberra, im mediately requested that a "big four" session be called. Henry Morgenthau, chairman and head of the United States delegation, was willing, but Dr. Thomas Leb reton, of Argentina, could not be found. The meeting was called for 10 a. m. tomorrow. Austria's policy authoritatively was said to be based on the con tention that an accord only among the "big four" would prove futile, because it would leave the other countries to increase their reduc tion indefinitely, thereby creating new surplus problems. Australia, it was believed, also ivill demand that European im porting nations revise their pros pective restrictions against for eign wheat. EDNEYVILL^S DX.C.

BASKERVILL Tlie TiniCK-Ni-WH Kurenu Sir WnIter lluti'l RALEIGH, June 29—The bat tle over patronage that ha.- l»een going on between Senator Robert R .Reynolds and Senator Josiah William Bailey, is probably com ing to a head, with indications that Senator Bailey is going to ccme out on top wi th all the best jobs for those he is supporting with nothing but some minor jobs for Reynolds' friends, according to reports being brought back here from Washington. Indica tions also are that former Gov. O. Max Gardner, national committee man from North Carolina and now practicing law in Washington, is having a great deal more to do with the distribution of patronage than most people realize and that he and Senator Bailey are going to become the patronage dictators for North Carolina job seekers. Something has gone radically wrong with Senator Reynolds' in fluence with regard to patronage, aryl some of his friends from Washington both peeved and dis couraged, convinced they had grabbed onto the tail of the wrong kite in believing Senator Reynolds could help them «et anything from the new Democratic pie counter. "Senator Reynolds seems to have gotten in wrong with the power* that be in Washington, so far as patronage distribution is concerned, with the result that I Senator Bailey and former Gov ernor O. Max Gardner are hav ing more to say about patronage J'or North Carolina than anyone else in Washington," a well known I state politician said yesterday on I his return from a stay of several days in Washington. "It looks very much as if all Reynolds will get out of the shuffle will be a few minor jobs, while he may do well to get even those." Others 1 who have been in Washington re ] eentlv are bringing back similar reports. The man qquoted above j was a strong Reynolds supporter ! and still is. But he does not hesi i tate to admit that something has I gone haywire. | Another things that is not hclp i ing the Reynolds prestige in this i part of the state is the large num j ber of persons who have been I promised jobs of some sort by Senator Reynolds, but who are not getting any and who are now beginning to realize that they probably will not got any. Recent visitors in Washington report that North Carolina job hunters are now going to other than North Carolina senators and congressmen for endorsements, and that the patronage squabble between Sen ators Reynolds and Bailey is the talk of Washington. One senator from a middle western state told a Raleigh visitor in Washington this week that he had been ask.nl for endorsements "by at least lOo North Carolina job hunters" and wanted to know "what is wrong down there in North Carolina.' He commented on the tact that the situation is very different in Washington now from the way it was during the Wilson admin:s tration when the North Carolina delegation presented a solid front on almost anything and when for mer Senator Simmons and the other members of the congres sional delegation could get almo.-t anything they wanted. "Back in those days, the North Carolina senators and representa tives stuck together and got what they wanted—why can't they do that now?" this senator asked. "If they don't, they are not likely to get anything." None of those who have been I to Washington recently are able ! to find any definite reason for the apparent waning of Senator Rey nolds' influence, however, except that it may be because of his lean ings towards the more radical or "Huey Long" group in congress. It is being recalled, however, that Reynolds was rather independent and "cocky" right after his nomi nation here in the state last sum mer and indicated that he did not want any advice from the State Democratic executive committee Tells How She Lost 15 Lbs. of FAT Rheumatism Gone Too Here is a woman who was rap idly putting on weight and who was troubled with rheumatism too. Read her letter: "I started taking Kruschen Salts because of the good it had done for a friend of mine who had been crippled with rheuma tism. At the end of the second bottle I was weighed and find I am now only 148 pounds (orig inal weight 163 lbs.), at which I am so pleased. But I have also felt my rheumatism much less, which has been so troublesome in my knees. I must say I think Kruschen a splendid weight re ducer." (Miss) E. L. P. Overweight and rheumatic poi soning often go together. The six salts in Kruschen assist the in ternal organs to perform their functions properly—little by little that uglv l'at poes; slowly, yes— but surely. You feel wonderfully healthy, youthful and energetic— more so than ever before in your life! Kruschen Salts is obtainable at all drug stores—a jar lasts four weeks and costs not more than 85c. (adv) and the then ueraocrauc jcbucis in the state, of which then Gover nor 0. Max Gardner was one of the most potent. Some are sug gesting that what is happening now may be traceable to Reynolds' attitude last summer and one way in which some of the older heads j in the party have chosen to show j him that lie would have done well j to have been less independent and ' to have listened to tliem a litt.e j more. Think Stevens Making Bid For j Political Backing Ex-Commander Of Legion Not Pleased At Sena torial Treatment The Tlnio»-N«w» fSurr.ui ; Sir Walter Hotel RALKIGH, .June ':!!».—There is j much more behind the interview, given out a few days ago by' Henry I.. Stevens, former Na-j tional Commander of the Amen-, can Legion, in which lie advocat-( ed higher minimum wages for tetile and other industrial work ers and a 30-hour week, than mere interest in the wages of textile workers, according to be lief in political circles here. For while this interview was given lout by Stevens after a confer ence with Governor J. ('. H. | Khringhaus in which the new tentative wage scale for indus • trial workers, under the indus trial recovery act, were discuss ed, it is known that no one in | vited Stevens to come here for a conference with the governor j or any one else and that no one .asked for any statement on min imum wapvs, the 30-hour week and allied subjects. What he 'gave out was given out voluntar ily. The substance of what Stevens |said was that he favored a min UJ1UII1 cvftic vx in the south and $15 a week in the north and a 30-hour week, instead of the proposed minimum wage of $10 a week in the south and $11 a week in the north and a 40-hour week. Stevens also called attention to the fact that shortly after he became com mander of the American Legion in 1931, he organized a commit tee to work for national adop tion of the 30-hour week of five a week and that he served as its chairman. He also added that he i> still convinced that if this plan had been adopted the depression would not have lasted so long. Those on the inside of things here, however, believe that there is much more behind Stevens' de claration in favor of higher min imum wages than a mere inter est in the personal welfare of cotton mill and other industrial workers. In fact, they believe that Stevens is definitely consid ering running for some office in which the voters of industrial workers would be very desirable, ami that this interview he issued advocating higher min i in u m, wages than those proposed by the government, is merely the first move in an effort to line up the industrial vote. It is not known just what Ste vens has in mind. Some think lie may be planning to seek the Democratic nomination for gover nor in 1 f3'i, while others think there is a possibility that he may be starting to get his ducks in a row t<> oppose Senator Josiah W. Bailey. It is generally conced ed, however, that Stevens does not think he has been very well treated by the two present sen ators and that lie is not at all averse to trying to make it hot for one or both of them.
