THE ALAMANCE GLEANER J VOL. LIV. * GRAHAM, N, C., THURSDAY APRIL 26, 1928. HO. 12. T WHAT'S GOING ON | NEWS REVIEW OF CURRENTEVENTS Flood Control Bill Fought by CooHdge and Others as "Extortionate." By EDWARD W. PICKARD THAT the flood control bill passed by tbe senate and, vltb certain amendments, under debate in the house last week, is the most extortionate measure in tbe history of the govern ment is the opinion of President Cool ldge. His remarkably outspoken view of this bill created something ot a sensation in Washington and it en couraged a group of representatives, led by Mr. Frear of Wisconsin, in a determined fight on the measure re ported by the house committee. The main issue was the 'question of local contribution upon which the President had Insisted. "Contribution is a cardinal prin ciple In federal, state, and municipal aid," said Mr. Frear. "This case pre sents no exception. Thousands of cor porations and large Individual owners under this bill will enjoy enormous financial benefits through flood protec tion. They should contribute toward 'the expense. If we pass this bill and adopt the plan of giving away the tax payers' money without limit to re Uabllltate or benefit great Interests that can bring political pressure to bear on congress, a hundred other flood control projects now knocking at committee doors will all demand the same treatment without contribution." fteid of Illinois, chairman of the flood control committee, said in reply: "There is in the bill no provision for local contribution. There can be none if congress Intends to protect the Uves and property of its citizens from these destructive floods. No levee sys tem can be effective unless It Is uni fied, co-ordinated, and complete, and should any levee district fail to pay a contribution necessary under tbe rec lamation theory the whole plan would falL Nearly every levee district Is now or will soon be bankrupt There Is no possible way for them to get money, as they are unable to sell any bonds because of the default in tbe bonds already issued." There were conferences of bouse and senate leaders for the purpose Of modifying tbe measure so that the President wonid sign it Senators Bansdell and Sackett talked with Mr. Oooiidge and reported that he would approve a bill similar to the Jones bill originally reported from the sen ate committee. This draft, while it eliminated local contributions, con tained various safeguards which were not In the measure as passed by the senate and approved by the house flood control committee. By HOLDING op action on the $304, 000,000 naval appropriation bill the radical Republicans forced the sen ate to adopt the resolution of Blaine of Wisconsin demanding from Secre tary Wilbur Information aa to tbe cost In Uvea and money of the operations of the marines In Nicaragua, llr. Wil bur Informed tbe senate that mainte nance of the marine expeditionary force In Nicaragua had resulted in the death of 21 marines and the wounding of 45 others. He set extra-cost to the government of marine activities In Nicaragua at $1530,170. The total eost of maintaining the expeditionary force, Mr. Wilbur fixed at 43530,000. It was explained, however, that more than $2400,000 of the total cost would have been expended on the marines even If they had remained In their home stations. The secretary said it was known that 202 Nlcaraguana bad been killed In lights with tbe marines -117A8HINGTON, New York and Chh v V cago were making plans to give rousing welcomes to the German-Irish transatlantic aviators and were as sured that tbe flyers would visit those dties after getting away from desolate Greenly Island In Belle We straits, no stories of their flight show that they last their way because their com pass failed In the dark and tbe snow storm, and they wandered far to the north of their roate.

Finally the airship, somewhat battered, came down safely at Seddln airdrome, near Stolp, Pom erailla, where repairs were made and further trial flights begun. Two more hops will take It to King's bay, Spits bergen, which will be the base of op erations.

Admiral j. k. robison, former chief of the navy engineering bu reau, was a star witness for the de fense in the Sinclair Teapot Dome conspiracy trial and be assumed full responsibility for the change In the government's' policy from conserving the navy's oil reserves to storing fnel oil In seaboard tanks and that be fa vored the opening np of the whole re serve. "Sinclair asked me what we wanted If a contract was entered Into," declared Robison. "I told blm we wanted a pipe line among other things, and such arrangements as would give him the largest possible profits, and give -us the largest possible share of his-production. The more money be got, the more I got for the navy. "I wanted to get the absolute maxi mum for the navy, and 1 got It." Rob ison almost shouted at the Jury, as he banged the rail of the witness en closure with his fist. Under cross-examination Robison was compelled to admit a close friend ship for Slnclulr. Be disclosed that he traveled for a week In Sinclair's pri vate car and was Sinclair's dinner guest at the exclusive Lotus club In New York. Be also admitted he bad played poker with Sinclair the very night that Sinclair secured three val uable contracts, one of them to sup plement the Teapot lease. The defense sought to show through former Secretary of the Navy Denby that the scheme to lease the Teapot Dome reserve was conceived lu the Navy department, but Denby'a testi mony was shut out by a government objection. Before the senate Investigating com mittee C. C. Chase, a aon-ln-law of Albert B. Fall, made admissions that were considered extremely damaging to Sinclair's cause, and be was sum moned by the government as a re buttal witness In the trial.
