MOSCOW FOOD
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.

No steps have been taken as
yet with regard to the reorganiza

WORLD WHEAT
CUT BELIEVED
NEAR ACCORD
Agreement On Production
Situation Rein? 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.

I n f luence Declared On
Wane In Senatorial Tilt
Over Patronage
By J. 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.

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.
