Washington. Dec. 21. (Al 1 )—Presi-
dent Hoover apparently will not re
ceive Democratic support for his
Ihiee-fold plan of approaching world
economic difficulties, but, neverthe
less, he is determined to proceed on
his own initiative in the few weeks
remaining of his adminstiaton.
While congi'cssional Democrats
avoided commitment which would
hinder their action after March 4,
Mr. Hoover and hLs advisers began a
series of conferences in preparation
for the proposed international econo
mic meeting which the chief execu
tive has linked with .studies of war
debts and disarmament problems.
This followed his special message
to Congress, in which the President
said that “discussions in respect te
both debt questions and’ the world
economic conference cannot be con
cluded during my administration, yet
the economic situation in the world
necessitates the preliminary work e»-
scnital to its success."
"The undertaking of these prelim
inary questions should not be delay

The House Agriculture Commit

Washington, Dec. 21.—(AP)—Pre
paration of a farm relief bill embody
ing the domestic allotments plan was
undertaken today by the House Agri

With its long bearings concluded,
the committee hoped to draft a mea

Representatives of the packing in

On the othei- hand, leaders of or

it, providing it is worked out to give
farmers generally the value of pre
