PROPfISEOTARIFF
MEASURE OPPOSED
Under Secretary of Treiiury
Mills To Fight Demo
cratic Program
Washington, Jan. 23. (AF)—Ad
ministration opposition to the House
Democratic tariff bill was renewed
today in testimony by Ogden Mills,
under secretary of the treasury, before
the Senate Finance committee.
Mills said the bill was “calculated
to delay action on needed rate
changes" by restoring the flexible pow
er to Congress.
He also contended a “very serious
danger" would result in placing tariff
revisions "interminably" before Con
gress.
Assailing the provision for an In
ternational tariff conference looking
to removal of trade barriers. Mills said
Congress alone could determine the
tariff policy of this country.
the fact creating the Personnel Di
vision expressely states that 30 days
notice must be given the department
heads of any cuts made in personnel
or allotments for personal service, be
fore these changes shall go into ef
fect. So no cuts could have been put
into frffect before eMarch without
violating the law. The second factor
Is that all of us were convinced of
the necessity for doing the work that
is being does as carefully and as
possible and of the danger of trying
to do it In too Mg a hurry. Bo from
avery standpoint, I think the decision
to postpone the effective date of the
salary reductions until March is a
wise one.”
Whether or not the reduction in
expanses for the four months will
have to aggregate the same amounts
aa wars contemplated for five months
has not yet been determined and will
be worked out later, Governor Gard
ner said. It is thought likely, however,
that about the same aggregate
amounts of expense will have to be
lopped off in the four months as was
contemplated for the five.
