nationalist deputy, who led opposition
to the December 15 deh,t payment to
the United States, opened a fight in
the Chamber of Deputies today
against authorization of a loan to
Austria with the suggestion that the
loan would be inconsistent with the
failure to pay America.
Deputy Marin asked:
“How could -we lend to Austria
after our gesture toward the United
States, our ally who fought on our
side?"
Fight, ng what he termed Austria's
economic situation, lie expressed the
belief the proposed loan of about
$14,000.000 would be "money JjiyV of
which the lenders would not jget hfcck
a sou." w
Deputy Marin said furthermore the
loan would benefit private bankers
rather than the Austrian state, ex
pressing a belief it would be used to
reimburse England for a loaa made
to Austria last year.

Mr. Hoover has gone on south,
fishing. And from wluit 1 read in
the papers the Democrats are
planning for him. I believe I
would just keep right on fishing.
I have always believed he made
a mistake by not stepping out and
turning the whole thing over to
'em on December first. There
wasn’t a chance of him and them
agreeing on anything. It would
have been a great, Idg thing to
have done. Everybody is against
the "l-ame Duck” and this Is the
last one, anyhow. That would have
given him an excellent excuse.
They couldn't have accused him
of quitting.
Work it like President Wilson
was going to. There would have
been enough “Lanie Ducks” fol
lowed his example that we would
now be seeing what plans the
Democrats had.
As It Is now, we have two more
months of loggerheading and an
extra session of Congress. I would
even leave ’em now, and say:
“Boys, it looks easy—maybe you
can fix everything before March
fourth.”
The Democrats would have to
dig up some schemes mighty fast-
Mr. Hoover would come out sit
ting pretty. There wouldn’t be a
Republican on the Potomac to lay
anything on to. As it Is now, this
is Just a grudge Congress—a
