Republicans embarked today on
what Is conceded to be the very
difficult task of rewriting the
Fordney bill.
Several? methods of conlne with
the situation brought about by the
depreciation and fluctuation of
foreign exchange have been sug -
gested. The house decided on a
general plan of assessing duties
ation of the articles imported, but
some administration leaders be
lieve the plan would be very dif
ficult of handling.
Harding has suggested the fixing
of maximum and minimum rates
with the chief executive given au
thority to change the duties be

may warrant Irom time to time.
' This proposal has- met with the
approval i ot :. some congressional
