MTABOEN PUSHES DEBT PROBE IST Pennsylvania Congressman Carries on Almost Single- Handed ATTACKED PRESIDENT A miked Hoover of ‘’SHllng Out" (he Country by Granting Debt Mora torium; Republicans Re fuse Him Support By CHARLES I*. STF.WART Central Press Staff Writer Washington, Jan. 1. —Say whatever else about him folk may. Representa tive Louis T. McFadden of Canton (Pa.) is putting up, against almost unbelievable odds, a single-handed fight unprecedented in congressional history. It is so extraordinary a performance as to be difficult to account for ra tionally. Probably no one will need to be reminded that McFadden is the law maker who accused President Hoover at "selling out" the country when ho granted his war debt moratorium. He likewise surely will be recalled as having declared that this suspen sion of European repayments to Uncle Sam. while at the expense of the American public generally, is to the particular advantage of American bankers who have loaned money abroad since the armistice, t The double-barrelled character of this charge was such as to arouse the violent indignation alike of enormous political und or equally formidable financial forces, without creating for the Pennsylvanian any rompensating ly friendly alignment to stand back or him. Even Republicans who do not like the president were horrified at Mc- Faddcn's attack on him, as damaging to the party. Democrats were, and still are. afraid to support the indictment’s author, lest he fail to make good his accusa tion. Besides, high finance has friends in Democratic as well as in G O. P. managerial circles. Progressive insurgents from both old-line groups are suspicious of Mc- Fadden, having always deemed him p.n utra-standpatter.

Seeing them, it has been hus custom to comment on them with more free dom and pungency than tact. Commentators suggest It as a pos sibility that resentments bred thus may have been responsible for the failure of big money's custodians to come to the rescue of enterprises with i which McFadden himself has been as sociated-enterprises which have been in undisguised straits in the last year or two. it is as n corollary of this sugges tion (hat the same commentators are wondering whether counter-resent ment at big money's indifference to his interests’ difficulties may not have i had its share in inspiring the Penn- sylvanian’s denunciation of the White! House and International banking, in connection with the moratorium. J Regardless or his motive, there can be no question as to Representative McFadden's courage or of the vigor with which he continues to follow up his offensive—an offensive which those against whom It is directed seem curiously hesitant to meet in a toe-to PAGE SEVEN toe encounter according to parliamen tary rules.
