found him wushlng mushrooms
not a tlcky lltllo handful, but a

"Wlioro'd you find thorn!" was
tho prompt query.
"Thal't for you to find out."
Wall answorod, "but It wasn't

And Walt swears It didn't take
him over 15 minutes to dig tho

THESE particular mushrooms,
Walt confided, are ot tht
ngarlcus variety If that means
anything to you.
They are of the plnk-gllled
typo, and muahroomi with pink

ranged In alio from buttona about
tho heft of a email walnut to big.
umbrella-shaped onea weighing a

Tha biggest muahroom Walt

deal with the St. Francla hotel.
In Ban Francisco, to take all tho
mushrooms ot a cortaln apoclflod

And boy! how ho did ahlp
mushrooms! Ho poured them In

they took all he acnt.

Senate Action Wednesday Night Brings
First Major F. D. R. Overthrow
228 Millions Needed
WASHINGTON, March 29, (AP) The adminktra
tion pondered without immediate answer today on where
to get another $228,000,000 the cost of a surprising
overthrow of President Roosevelt's first maj'or veto.
"What'll we use for money?" that in effect was the
query of government heads after the turbulent capitol
scenes that accompanied the break between congress
and the chief executive. ' , -
There was nos quick reply. Several courses were
open. Early speculation had it that either new taxes
would be suggested or a deficiency appropriation voted
to expand the budget by the needed amount
Democratic Leader Pre
diets New Measure s
to Meet Cost.
WASHINGTON, March 29, UP)
Representative Byrns, the dem
ocratic leader, told newspaper
men today It was "entirely possi
ble'.' that President Roosevelt
would ask new taxes to meet ex
penditures caused by 'passage ot
the Independent offices bill over
his veto.
The measure, providing addi
tional appropriations for war vet
erans and government employes,
was enacted Into law last night
when the Benate Joined the house
in over-riding President Roose
velt's wishes.
Budget Will Be Exceeded
It was estimated by the presi
dent In his veto message that the
expenditures authorized by the
legislation would exceed budget
estimates by $228,000,000.
"I do not know the president's
plans," Byrns added, "but in view
ot the position he expressed In
his veto message, lt is entirely
possible that he will ask congress
to provide additional revenue."
Tax Bill Chargs
It was pointed out, however,
that new taxes or Increased rates
might be added to the tax bill
already passed by . the house and
now pending in the senate.
Byrns laughed at republican
statements that President Roose
velt has suffered the "worst de
feat in recent years" on tho in-H
dependent offices bill.
"Why," ho asserted, "only four
years ago last June, the house
passed 290 to 14 a Spanish war
veterans pension bill over Presi
dent Hoover's veto. -
"President Hoover got only 14
votes; President Roosevelt got
72."

RESTS OFF GOAST
MIAMI, Fla.. March 29 (IP)
President Roosevelt anchored to
day off Settlement Point lu the
warm waters ot the g"lf stream
to begin his vacation with some
fishing and swimming.
Settlement Po"!rit commonly Is
known as West End.' .'on the
great Bahama Island, about, 86
miles northeast of. Miami. '
Vincent 1 Astor, ownor of the
yacht Nourmnhal pat Is carry
ing the president,; Bent the fol
lowing message early today to
Marvin H. Mclntyre, presidential
secretary, located bore:
"Had fine night. Now an
chored off Sandy Cay, northwest
ot Settlement Point. The presi
dent expects to spend .the day
fishing and having, a swim." '
The latter course alone,
without providing new rev
enue, would mean swelling
the public debt just that
much more.
The senate's action last night,
after seven hoars ot furious de
bate, did not cause quite the sur
prise engendered when the over
whelmingly democratic house, de
feated the veto. -
By a three-vote margin of (3'
to 27, the senate engraved oa
the statute books the J8S0.0OO,- .
000 independent office appropri
ation bill. i
G. O. P. Ranks Solid.
In ft were the Increased pay
ments tor veterans and govern
ment employes which had been
the bone of contention.
Republicans 33 In all stood
In solid phalanx for the bill. They
ware Joined by 29 democrats and
the lone Farmer-Labor member,
Shipstead of Minnesota. AU 27
voting to sustain the president
came from the democratic side.
Stirring scones accompanied
the vote. Opponents of the veto
ignored all pleas by the demo
cratic leaders that such action
might shake confidence in Presi
dent. Roosevelt at a time when lt
was needed. '
Gallery Tarns Noisy.
'Announcement of the vote by
Vice-President Garner brought
cheers, shouts and applause from
the crowded galleries. Decpite
warnings from the chair there .
had been previous outbursts both
on the senate floor and In the
crowds above.
Washington received the news
with some excitement It meant
that $26,000,000 extra would be
given federal employes between
now and July 1, part ot lt retro
active until February 1. In ad
dition to this five per cent re
storation of the government pay
cut, another five per cent adding
another 1126,000,000 will go in
to effect July 1. Much of this
money will be spent In -the capl- ..
tal.
F. B. Remains Silent.
While official Washington lis
tened tor Mr. Roosevelt's answer,
it recalled that he had declared
the bill went $228,000,000 beyond ,
his budget estimates with no pro
vision as to how this sum would
be obtained.
In his ' veto message he in
volghed chiefly against the prin
ciple of a veterans' "service pen
sion." This he said the bill sot
up for Spanish-American war vet
erans. He had objected also to
the provisions restoring 29,000
World war veterans to the rolls at
75 per cent of tholr former com
pensation without review ot their
cases to determine if the disabil
ities were of service origin.
Observers found much to talk
about on the possible political re
percussions of the vote. They
were trying to decide whether
the 29 democrats in the senate
and 210 In the house who voted
against the president had more
to gain by supporting the more
liberal vetorans' provisions thai
to lose by going against the presi
dent at a time whtn confidence
in blm was the chief battle cry .
ot the administration. '
Elections Will Count. '
Much will be heard on both
sides In the coming congressional
primaries and elections.
There was complete silence
when Carter Glass, the Virginia
democrat who has opposed tha
money policies ot . the president,
took .the floor. -
He declared tht president was
correct In vetoing the bill, and
that he bad never wavered from
the principles he thought right
