Although Senator Harris Newman,
chairman of the finance committee
would make no statement on the bill,
it has been learned that the course
outlined will be followed.
It is certain that the bill is being
redrafted and that the revenue clause
of the original bill is being changed.
The very likely probability is that the
bill, when it finally re-emerges, will
be without its revenue-raising feature
and that the revenue feature will bw
incorporated in a separate measure
and offered as a new section to be
added to the revenue bill.
It is known that many of the fin

without comment as to the merits of

Drawing $5,000 and Over
Washington. March 23.—(AP)--The
$4,880,000,000 work-relief bill, with
numerous modifications, including a
modified silver inflation plan, was
passed today by tlje Senate.
This ended two weeks of struggle
and returns the measure to the House
with amendments.
Administration strategy called for
sending the long controverted relief
measure to a conference between the
Senate and House to reconcile some
of the outstanding differences.
Leaders expected to see stricken
out in conference an amendment by
Senator Thomas, Democrat, Okla
homa. for a currency expansion of
$373,000 000 through the issuance of
silver ertificates at the $1.29 an
ounce monetary value of the Treas
ury’s silver stocks, instead of the
present practice of using the purchase
value of the silver.
Just before passage, the Senate ac
cepted an amendment by McCarran,
Democrat, Nevada, to require Senate
confirmation of all officials receiving
$5,002 or more who would have char

Would Not Help Matters
Here for Gold Bloc
Nations to Abandon It
Central Press Staff Writer
New York, March 23. —What, evi
dently, currency devaluers do not rea
lize is that to push the remaining gold
standard countries off the gold stan
dard is deflationary. Any further de
valuation of the dollar, for example,
to meet the devaluation of currencies
abroad is likely to create further un
certainty in the United States—and
uncertainty means retardation of bus
iness and decline in prices.
That is the view of New Yorw fin
ancial interests.
The growing belief among the peo
ple that the issuance of greenbacks
in large quantities by the government
would increase the wealth of individ
uals is termed "absurd’’ by conser
vative economists.
Unless the greenbacks were delib
erately given away they would fall
into the same hands as the people
who now own the money—through
their monopolistic control of the pro
ductive factors of life.
It is not the issuance of paper
money—liberal economists tell us—
that brings plenty to people but the
spreading distribution of the wealth
created by ht,e productive effort, of
the people.
