FARM BILL FATE

Friends or Foes Do
Whether Coolidge WiU Ap.
prove or Veto
WASHINGTON, feb. 19 (A)
The traditional White House
silence tonight enfolded the fate
of the McNary-Haugen farm relief
bill, for after a day's stay in the
hands of the president and his ad
visers, friends and foes of the
measure knew no more whether
the president' would approve "or
disapprove it than they knew when
the measure was finally passed by
the- house Thursday night.
, There" were a number' of callers
at the White House to discuss the
bill with the president and the
best Information they could give
as to his attitude was that Mr.
Coolidge : appeared interested ' In
their presentation of arguments.
. Senator Gooding, republican,
Idaho, --one of the callers. wXo
spent a long time in conference
with the president, said he did not
believe the chief executive "had
made up his mind on the bill.
Senator' McNary, "republican, of
Oregon, co-author of the measure,
professed to have had no indica
tion as to its fate.
Soon after the engrossed docu
ment was received at the White
House it was sent to the agricul
ture department for the perusal
of -Secretary Jardine.- It - is the
usual course for proposals affect
ing various departments to . be
submitted to department heads In
this way. Secretary Jardine has
never advocated the McaTy
There were a number of schools
of speculation at work on Capitol

with a message outlining his posi
tion. Another group believes he
will sign it to demonstrate its
feasibility or weakness. Still an
other holds' that he will approve it
