May t. (API .-?Tho senate advanced the Roo sevelt legislative program another notch today, while the house stood still with parliamentary ob jections blocking action on the administration farm relief - in flation hill. The Roosevelt bill to protect Investors In new issues of secur ities by compelling publication of all pertinent Information as to their soundness was passed by the . senate. Already approved by the house, it now goes- to conference. Democratic house leaders were balked In their plan for a vote on the farm-bill provision for a gov- ernmental guarantee of the cost of production to the farmer. This ' is the last dispute standing In the way of final passage. Point Upheld but Vote Is Imminent A republican point of order was raised that the conference report contains language approved by neither house, in violation of par liamentary rules. This was upheld by the ohalr, but shortly after ward, the rules committee ap proved a plan of action which Is expected to bring a vote tomorrow n d e r procedure prohibiting points of order. The first vote will be on house approval of this procedure. The production cost guarantee was written into the bill by the senate. Administration leaders were confident if the house re jects the provision, the senate will precede from Its position .making it possible to send the farm bill, with It inflation rider, to the White House in a few days French and British Stubborn en Debts While congress wrestled with these domestic issues, apprehen sion grew lest a dispute over war debts might endanger the success of the coming world economic conference. The French cabinet decided unanimously against pay ing the defaulted December in stallment of 119,000,000 unless the United States promises post ponement of the payment due in June. Simultaneously, word was received from London the Brit ish are holding out for a post ponement of their June Install ment as a condition of Joining the tariff truce proposed by President Roosevelt. The developments brought the chief executive, still smiling and confident, face to face with a grave decision whether be should ask congress for authority to deal with war debts, as was his indi cated intention a wefek ago.

(AP) . Gaston B. Means was on trial today, and on the witness stand across the room sat Mrs. Bvalyn Walsh McLean, clutching a little black handbag containing a rope of diamonds two feet long and Jewelled bracelets worth a king's ransom. As the bulky, round-faced con victed swindler shifted In his seat, the distinguished woman, once fabulously wealthy and brilliant In society, composedly told with new details the story of how Means and Norman T. Whitaker, known as "The Fox," got from hr 1104.000 in return for a promise to return the Lindbergh baby. , She testified they then sought S35.000 more with which to re place the marked money which Col. Charles A. Lindbergh nad paid out through "Jafsie" In the attempt to get back nis cnua whose body even then was lying on a lonely hillside almost within steht of his New Jersey home.

What other than ghosts could cause a barrel to roll uphill along the border of a cemetery, Carl Charl ton, night trafJic officer, must have wondered in the wee hours of Monday morning. Upon return ing to police headquarters from an investigation trip to City View cemetery, he reported seeing Just thai a barrel rolling up the Hoyt street nui. The blasts of the night's gaie which played eerie tunes on the cemetery trees gave the officer the clue to the weird phenomenon he witnessed. The windstorm early yesterday at times reached a velocity of 82 miles an hour, airport weather observers reported. EUGENE, Ore., May 8 (AP) The remarks of a ten-year-old girl, the daughter of the defend ants, were ordered stricken from the records in circuit court here today after having been entered by a prosecution witness against Mr. and Mrs. Llewellyn A. Banks, on trial for first degree murder for the slaying of George Prescott, Medford constable. Miss Charlotte de Ford, rela tive of a state policeman, who was sent to the Banks home lmmedi ately after Prescott had been shot to death there, testified that Mrs Banks told the child "Daddy ahot Mr. Prescott." "Oh, mother, Is he dead?" the witness quoted the girl, and the mother's reply "I don't know, he's lying out there on the porch." Only after the witness had quoted the child, Ruth May Banks, as having said "Ob, moth er, I knew he would do it," did the defense interpose an objection to such testimony. The court sus tained the objection and the Jury of six men and six women were Instructed to take no note of the remarks. Earlier in the day Al Lumsden, detective sergeant of state police, had testified that when the child returned from school Mrs. Banks had told her "daddy has killed Mr. Prescott. He s lying out on the porch." This testimony passed unchallenged.

Welsh, 82, Massachusetts' young Jurist. Kenneth, 28, unemployed chauf feur, ereated a furore shortly be fore his appearance In court by telling reporters there was "an other party" Involved In the kid naping, but that he was withhold ing his Identity because he was afraid of what might happen to his wife. Sa: s Wife in Peril , If He Tells Truth The young confessed kidnaper later retracted his statement and detectives reiterated their belief no one else was Involved. While awaiting arraignment Kenneth was asked: "Is it true that there Is some one else In this case?" "Yes, there is," he replied, and began to sob. I am between tnem and my wife," he said, "and I don't know what to do. I know I didn't do it and she knows I didn't do It. I am between them and my wife and I can't say anything." Asked If the "somebody else ' had left him to take the blame he replied: 'Yes, they ran away and left me." He answered "No, ' when asked. If the person or persons lived In Harwiehport. At first Kenneth said two oth er men were Involved but later changed It to one. "They dumped the kid on my hands, he sobbed." Kenneth was arraigned on a charge of kidnaping and extortion while his brother, IS years his senior, was charged with extor tion alone. A special session of the grand Jury will convene next week and if indictments are returned on the basis of what police claim are confessions by both men the us ual preliminary hearing will be eliminated.

"There are perhaps 2,000 wom en in the state now who annually buy fishing or hunting licenses,' she told the commission. "Thousands of skirted anglers are evading the game laws every year. They go fishing with their husbands or other male relatives and think nothing of having a li cense.

PORTLAND, Ore., May 8 (AP) Moving swiftly after their week of study of proposed ; bod gets for the coming year, the Ore gon state board of higher educa tion met here today and allotted funds for 1933-34 on essentially the basis submitted by Dr. W. J. Kerr, state chancellor of higher education. The board provided for centralization of the work of agriculture at Oregon State col lege, appropriated 55,000 -for mu nicipal research at the University of Oregon, and adjourned. Every member of the board waa present except Mrs. Cornelia Mar vin Pierce, who is in Washington. C. The meeting was described as harmonious in every respect. Scanning prospective income after the succession of cuts the educational - funds have suffered. the board allowed for a further reduction of 10 per cent from mil la;e because of falling assessment valuations, and estimated that the total unrestricted Income from all sources, including student fees. will be 82.369.068.51. The esti mated requirements on the basis of the budget adopted are $2,278,- 1 88.19, which will be used to op erate all six of the state'a institu tions of higher learning for the year beginning July 1. Tried to Maintain AU of Essentials Chancellor Kerr emphasised that although the budget is 20.1 per cent under that of a year ago, every effort has been made to maintain all essentials in instruc tional work on all campusea. Slashes as high as 48 per rest were made In administrative coats and extension, he said. Staff reductions are severe, the chancellor stated, yet the "blow" was softened as far as possible by dividing the work so more per sons will be on a part time and fewer on a full time basis. Bven so. he said, the reduction of sal aried start members on a full-time equivalent basis will be consider able compared to last year. Summer schools are Included in the budget and will be held as usual at Eugene, Corvallli and Portland with a post session at Eugene. They will be held, how ever, on a much reduced Income and will depend more on student fees. The normal schools are on a four-term basis, so the sum mer work Is a regular part of their instruction year. Radio station KOAC at Oregon State college was retained fa the budget,' but on an allowance more than a third under that of last year. Staff members of the station offered to go on two thirds time.
