"...WASHINGTON. March 13.
The senate, despite President
Coolldge's endorsement, refused
today, 41 to 32, to authorize the
proposed loan of $50,000,000 to
farmers of the spring wheat belt
to finance their start in the poul
try, swine and livestock indus
tries. In disposing of the proposal,
carried in the Norbeck-Burtness
bill as the first of several special
agrarian' relief measures, the sen
ate divided along geographical
rather than party lines. The re
sult showed 23 democrats and IS
republicans opposing, and 20 re
publicans, 10" democrats and two
farmer-labor members supporting
the bill. '

objection that it was designed to
assist a Sharply delimited area.
