More House Testimony
Washington July 15 (AP)—The leg
islation which President Roosevelt
wants to protect the government from
damage suits growing out of nullici
cation of the gold payment clause in
its contracts was defended today by
Secretary Morgenthau.
He said in a letter to Chairman
Fletcher, of the Senate Banking Com
mittee, that the administration pro
posal to close the courts against such
suits should have no noticeable ef
fect on the government’s credit dr
prices of securities. Some committee
members had expressed the fear that
the step might t°nd in impair public
faith in government bonds.
A formidable legal threat arose,
meanwhile, to another New Deal pol
icy—public construction of low-cost
housing.
Secretary Ickes acknowledged that*
a decision by the circuit court of ap
peals at Cincinnati barring Federal
condemnation of land for such pur
poses would restrict the housing pro
gram which PWA has under way in
many cities.
He said, however, it would be con
tinued “within the limits set by the
decision.”
