WM's What-at a Glance
Central Press staff Writer
Washington, March 12.—President
Roosevelt’s request for authority to
make tariff bargains, for Uncle Sam,
with foreign countries, will be desper
atelv fought in Congress.
In fact, it probably will spin out
the session well on into the summer,
much against the wishes of the Presi
dent. who would prefer to have the
lawmakers go home by midspring,
leaving him to dictate, uncriticized,
whatever short cuts he may choose,
from time to time, on the road to re
eovery: against the wishes, too of most
of the lawmakers, who have re-elec
tinn campaigns, requiring their atten
tion in their various bailiwicks.
In this particular matter, however,
ilie power sought by the White House
j. -o enormously at the legislators’ ex
pense that their hesitancy to grant it
is hardly to 'oe wondered at.
Tariff-making always had been re
minded as financial business, in Its
very nature.
The constitution provides that mone
tnry measures, without exception,
must originate in the House of Rep
resentatives. Even the Senate is en
titled to consider them secondarily -
the President, of course, possessing
the light of veto, but absolutely none
of an initiatory characted beyond the
milking of mere suggestions.
If, on llie opposite hand, the view
i- taken that the compacts the presi
dent would like to be able to eon
ehide, independently of congressional
indorsement, are not essentially of a
fiscal description, but should be view
ed rather as diplomatic treaties, then
the Senate’s tenderest sensibilities are
roughly touched upon for the con
stitution provides that no treat*' **m>
State Department may conclude shall
he binding upon Uncle Sam until the
senators have ratified it.
Yet, if ever tariffs are to 'be ade
quately scaled downward, to give
fresh encouragement to American
export trade, no person, who has the
least familiarity with Congress’ past
handling of the problem, is likely to
dispute that some one, other than tin?
legislators, must, do the scaling.
This is because it is difficult to finct
a senator or representative who has*
not, in his state or district, some brg
interest (or several of them) which
insists upon a high import tax on
goods corresponding to its own espe
cial output, to protect it against for
eign competition—-or it will do its
utmost to beat that senator or repre
sentative for re-election, and the sen
ator or representative generally is
shrewdly suspicious that the big inter
est (or interests) can do it, too.
Outline Federal Relief
Plan for Farm Families
(Continued from Page One.)
of various sorts.
At the present time there are thou
sands of families stranded in indus
trial cities and towns in North Caro
lina and other states in the south,
which originally came from farms
in the boom days prior to 1921) ln
‘•ause they could make more money
then in mills and factories than they
could on the farms. But now many
of these mills and factories have clos
ed or are employing only the more
expert labor, witfy the result that
thes efamilies are without work ana
virtually dependent upon Federal re
lief, Mrs. O’Berry pointed out. They
will undoubtedly have to be main
tained by relief agencies unless some
thing can be done to help them l)e»
come self supporting, she said. Thar
is why the Relief Administration is
now trying to work out a new re
habilitation program that will make
many of these families semi-indepen
dent if not entirely so.
While Mrs. O’Berry would not un
dertake to predict what the regional
conference would decide upon, if any
thing, she did point to what Presi
dent Roosevelt had said in outlining
his plan for returning these families
of rural origin who went into indus
try and became stranded there among
tiie unemployed, back to the land. The
President said:
“Relief funds will be expended in
such a manner to permit them to
achieve self-support. Wtork for wages
front relief funds is not an essential
part of this phase of the program.
No extension of competative farming
is contemplated, but rather the plac
ing of thousands of persons who have
made their living from agriculture, in
i'* a relationship with the soil that
will provide them 'a security they
do not now enjoy.
‘Some of the methods that may be
employed include building or rebuild
ing to provide adequate farm homes;
the provision of seed and stock for
other than commercial purposes; op
portunities to these workers to earn
modest cash incomes through pnrt
tiinc or seasonal employment in small
industrial enterprises. Then should
also be a planned distribution of the
regular jobs on highways in the na
lumal and state parks and other pub
lie works in rural communities.”
Mrs. O’Berry pointed out that the
Civil Works Administration will cease
to exist as a separate unti on March
31, according to new instructions re
ceived from Washington, and that all
CWA projects still in operation on
that date will automatically be trans
ferred to the Emergency Relief Ad
ministration on April 1. This in reality
is only a change in name, since the
Emergency Relief Administration and
the Civil Works Administration have
been almost identical as far as per
oimei is conccnped from the start,
•tie. only difference being that the
money forte CWA came from one
ource—the Public Works Administra
tion—and the money for relief ac
tivities from the Emergency Relief

The larger executives, however, are
not so optimistic.

Arc fines against persons of mod
erate or impoverished circumstances
That question is arising increasingly
Those who have money escape pen
al punishment. Those who haven’t
must suffer. Or, if one is in moderate
circumstances, his family can ‘be im
poverished by a fine.
There are many persons jailed in
the United States simply because of
lack ol money- and they may be far
less guilty of wrongdoing man those
who are able to pay for freedom.
This rumor seems to be true:
Frank Murphy, governor general of
the Philippines, is to return to his
native Michigan to campaign for gov
ernor. The former mayor of Detroit is
a staunch Roosevelt man.
Homer S Cummings, attorney gen
eral. originally intended for the Philip
pines’ post, is to go there.
Martin Conboy, recently appointed
U. ,S. attorney at New York, is to be
come attorney general, succeeding
Cummings. He was President Roose
velt’s attorney when Roosevelt was
Fredinand Pecora, investigator of
banks for the senate, is to be named
U. S. attorney at New York.
And, then—Pecora will campaign
for the U. S. senatorship now held
by Senator Copeland.
It’s the kind of rumor that political
writers dote on.
Pecora would have a difficult time
winning the senatorial nomination
over Senator Copeland—who is known
to thousands as a medical writer of
Administration. But from now on all
the money will come from the $950.-
000.000 appropriation for the Emer
gency Relief Administration.

May Seize Forgers
of N. C. Checks
(Continued from Page One.)
make use of the State Highway Pa
trol in running down the forgers and
check flashers.
The ring leader of the forgers is
believed to he Claude Horne, from
Columbus county originally, who has
id ready sei ved two terms in the State
h ' ,v for fmgery. Horne* was
arrested several days ago at his home
1,1 Columbus county and is now being
held in the Harnett county jail m
Lillingtoi on charges in connection
with tne passing of some of these
bad checks in Dunn. He is also want
eu ii Rocky Mount on similar charges
and has been identified as the man
who passed one of these checks there.
Horne served his first prison sen
tence of one year for forgery in the
State Prison here in 1931-32, having
been convicted in Gastonia. In No»
vember, 1932, he started serving his
second term, a sentence of from two
to four years for forgery, from Wil
mington, New Hanover county. He
completed this sentence, because of
time off for good behavior, on No
vember -1, 1923.
“Horne is one of the smartest pri
soners we have ever had out here
and .is a real student of forgery”
Warden H. H, Honeycutt said today
The other man being- sought as
Hoi ne s associate in forging- and pass
ing these Sitate vouchers is C. R.
Younts, of Thomasville, who served a
term in the State Prison from Sep
tember 10, 1932, until November ■»,
1933. for store-breaking and larceny
from Durham. He has not yet been
arrested but indications are that the
police are on his trail.
Highway patrolmen have arrested
one of two women who had been pass
ing some of the forged checks.
The two comely young women who.
posing as school teachers, last week
passed two forged State vouchers off
on Raleigh merchants, are believed to
have visited the State Prison here the
same day, according to Warden Honey
cutt. He is wondering whether they
visited the prison to get some word
to some prisoner or merely to get an
idea of where they might eventually
be sent if they got caught. One of
these check flashers, who gave tne
name of Rebecca Westmoreland, 22,
of Thomasville is now in the city jail
here, while police and highway patrol
men who have been aiding- in tracing
their movements, are confident that

“I didn’t think about it until $ read
in the paper that the two women who

day. “Then I happened to remember
that two nice looking young women
had come out here to the prison the
