Leaders; Treasury Will Loan By FREDERICK G. VOSBURGH WASHINGTON, Jan. 22 (AP) Creation of the great "reconstruction finance corporation" to be headed by Charles G. Dawes represents a bold effort on the part of the American government to recapture prosperity. The nation s leaders who have helped to create it say its benefits will be felt in every nation of 'society. They . o look upon it as tackling prob lems of unemployment and de pression at their root. Backed by half a billion dol lars of United States treasury capital and authority to borrow billion and a half more, Dawes and his fellow directors will tackle the job of getting the credit stream flowing again. Good government gold will be loaned to the railroads, the ex porter and a long list of, finan cial institutions in return for in trinsically valuable but not vir tually unsaleable securities. The farmer will be allowed to bor row directly, giving a lien on his crops. To show how the mammoth corporation is Intended to work, the institutions that will benefit from its operations may be lik ened to individuals.

The speeches of wet mem bers in the debate admitted the constitutional impossibility of a national referendum upon the prohibition question and revealed the baseless nature of all such proposals. "The Bingham resolution was properly characterized by mem bers of the senate as 'ridiculous' since it sought to have members of the United States senate record themselves for the first time in our national history as Incompe tent to determine policies of leg islation or judge the merits of constitutional changes as the re presentatives of the people."

C. AInsworth, Portland, and TVil 11am Hanley, Burns. Among the matters to come an at the next meetinar of th rnm mission, scheduled for early Fei ruary, the governor named a 30 per cent reduction In adminis trative expenses. Including salar ies; a recommendation by tte commission to the next leeisL. ture that motor vehicle licenses be reduced at least 2 5 per cent that arrangements be made with Chief Engineer McDonald of the. federal highway department for a complete survey of the stat highway department and Its ro?4 system.

Commissioner Spaulding was not present at tho meeting. 'Although exact figures wro not available," Governor Meier said, "it was estimated that the administrative expense is approx imately $640,000, and that a re duction of 30 per cent would amount to approximately $192.- 000. 'The 25 per cent reduction in motor vehicle licenses, it is estJp mated, would approximate $1,- 500.000, and it was suggested that it might be found necessary that the legislature in granting this reduction put an additional 1-cent tax on gasoline, which, It was estimated, would bring In. approximately 11,7 00 J) 00."
