about $12,000,000 for the bill.
The turmoil-shaken legislators
then turned to provisions restrict
ing allowances and extra compen
sation for federal employes, es
timated to save about $13,700,

coalition had been beaten down
on numerous amendments.
Portions of Planned

The Hoover five-day week and
furlough without pay plan, esti
mated to save about $82,000,000,
was offered as a substitute to the
emasculated McDuffie flat 11 per
cent proposal, exempting $1,000,
by Representative Ramseyer of
Iowa, republican member of the
economy committee. But It was
defeated 179 to 156.
Before the house finished with
the wage-cut provision the bi-par
tisan Opponents struck -out the
provision eliminating the Satur
day half holiday for federal em
ployes, estimated to save $9,000,-

employes to a maximum of $10,-
000 also was approved.

from the expected savings of $67,

cut plan and the $9,000,000
through the defeat of the Satur
