Washington, iMiay 24.—(AP)— Cash
bonus forces, somewhat discouraged
and disorganized by the size of the
Senate vote sustaining President
Roosevelt’s veto on the Patman bill,
counted upon their strong majorities
in both houses of Congress today for
eventual victory.
The decisive defeat of the Patman
bill, even by a minority vote, took the
wind out of the bonus movement, tem
porarily at least. Sevedal new pro
posals were advanced immediately,
but the leaders waited to get their
breath before plunging into a new
drive.
Confident predictions were issued
by the veterans’ chieftians, forecast
ing that' the bonus would 'be paid, bur.
there was a. noticeable droop in en
thusiasm among legislators over the
prospects for achieving it at this ses

Reynolds Estate
Being Deliberated
By Supreme Court
Raleigh, May 24 (AP)—The North
Carolina Supreme Court today took
under consideration the validity of a
family plan for disposal of the $28,-
000,000 estate of Smith Reynolds aft
er hearing the agreement, described
as “emasculation” of the trust of the
late R. J. Reynolds, under which the
estate is held.
The court listened to oral arguments
in the case for four hours and five
minutes, an almost unprecedented
length of time, and gave no indica
tion when its decision might be rend
ered. Usually only seventy minutes
is allowed for oral arguments.
Members of th ecourt. privately ex
pressed the opinion the case involved
the disposal of the largest sum of
money ever directly involved in a suit
before it.

Washington, May 24 —That a south

Inflation
Advocates
Slowed Up
By LESLIE EICHEL
New York. May 24 —No one can
guess from day to day which way the
Roosevelt administration will jump,
but the world outlook now is not for
inflation. For the summer, at least,
the inflationists seem to have been
checked. Eventually, however, it
seems reasonable to helieve that the
massive debts of today will be re
duced by inflation
. The nations of the world today are
talking of stabilization of currencies,
of exchange and trade agreements.
That is away from inflation. The
reason is obvious—the trade war has
been ruinous. {

Babson Park, (Mass,, May 24. —Pre-

not what type of bonus bill is passed
