annual message.
Republicans and democrats
heaped varied forms of relief
remedies into the legislative fun
nel through the day and tonight
committee chairmen were calling
meetings far later in the week, to
organize for handling them.

$150,000,000 to accelerate con
struction ifor employment relief,
and a fund for seed and. feed
loans tor farmers whose crops

He pointed to an estimated de
ficit for the present fiscal year
and a narrow surplus margin In
prospect for the 1932 fiscal year
and said: -
"I can not emphasize too,
strongly the absolute necessity to

Study of Western Situation
With View to Increase
Tariffs Proposed
Western . railway executives
contended today that the entire
transportation problems of that
district should be gone into by
the Interstate Commerce commis
sion and a policy of upward re
vision of freight rates adopted.
In a letter to commission the
association of western railway ex
ecutives asked that the effective
date for putting into effect re
duced grain rates already ordered
be postponed for the period of
the depression and for not less
than one year from next Janu
ary 1.
They asked the commission to
adopt a general poller of revis
ing rates upward instead ' of
downward. Investigate rail, mo
tor and water transportation and
oil and gas pipe lines.
Recommended to congress leg
islation fer regulation of motor
vehicle and pipeline transporta
Revise water freight rates
from a flat 20 per cent under rail
rates to a "basis that would en
able private water carriers to op
erate at a profit." -
Immediately revise long haul
freight rates upward.
Eliminate overhead rates and
continue the present combina
tlon .based on Chicago and re
lated western gateways.
Asserting that net operating
revenues of lines in western clas
sification territory had declined
$112,332,733 during the first
nine months of this year the ex
ecutlves said they had later re
ports indicating further losses of
$20,000,000 yearly.
The executives indicated In
their letter that only the business
depression . prevented them from
asking an immediate upward re
vision of all western rates. They
expressed a "sincere desire to
ameliorate the difficult problems
now confronting the commission,
the railroads and the general
public to the end that there shall
be no Impairment of railroad ser
vice in the western district."

George Putnam Threatens to
Have Court Proceedings
For Special Election
Governor Stands pat; Would
Let Legislature act
Under Amendment
That proceedings may ha
brought to compel Governor Nor
blad to call a special election for
picking a senator from this cons
ty Is Indicated in the receipt of a
letter by the governor from
George Putnam of Salenv makir g
formal demand that he Issue
call for an election. The govern
or replied setting forth his rea
sons for not Issuing a call: the
nearly unanimous objection of
residents of Marlon county to
the cost of $4000 or 35000; and
the fact that the new constitu
tional amendment empowers the
legislature to fill th!s-vacanry by
enacting an early law on the
subject: and the further fact
that Wlllard Marks, prospective
senate president, agreed to save
desirable committee assignments
for the new senator.
Putnam's paper last night
stated that mandamus proceed
ings would be filed Wednesday,
directly with "the supreme court
hoping for an early decision to
that if favorable to the petition
ers an election could be called.
It is further set forth that the
petition will seek to ascertain
whether the legislature can fill
a vacancy by means other than
an election since the new amend
ment did not specifically repeal
section 17 of article 3 of the
constitution which directs
governor to call elections
this purpose.
