MATERNITY BILL IS
PASSED BY HOUSE
Opposed by Only Woman Member,
Measure Carries 279 to 39
Goes to Conference
Washington, Dec. 19. The house
late today passed in amended form
the Sheppard-Towner maternity bill,
previously approved by the senate.
The measure goes to conference.
The vote was 279 to 39. During
debate Miss Alice M. Robertson, re
publican, Oklahoma, only woman
member of the bouse, urged defeat of
the bill, while its passage was ad
vocated by. Representative Mondell,
The bill provides co-operation be
tween the federal government and
states in the protection of maternity
It provides that $10,000 of fed
eral funds shall be turned over to
each state before July 1 and that
annually for five years $1,240,000
shall be available. The federal gov
ernment would contribute . $5,000
each year after July 1 to each state
and an additional $5,000 provided
the state contributes a like amount.
The balance of the annual fund
would be distributed among states
according to population, with each
state required - to match the contri
butions of the federal government.
Miss Robertson took a fling at
club women, who, she said, sit at
ease in comfortable homes worrying
about other people's children and get
a thrill over teacups by - passing
resolutions designed to bring about
a new order in governmental affairs.
She declared that the bill would
interfere with effective work being
done by individuals and by state,
municipal and private agencies.

said, "but God has given me a

TAX REVISION MEAS
URE BACK TO HOUSE
Corporation Tax Rate Set at 12Vj
Hope for Quick Action in
Washington, Nov. 19. The tax
revision bill came through its third
rewriting today, and will be return
ed to the house Monday. Republican
leaders are hopeful that the final
step In its enactment can be taken
in time to permit congress to end
its special session Wednesday.
Only five of the ten conferees have
signed the conference report. The
democrats refused to sign and Sen
ator Smoot of Utah, republican, pro
ponent of the sales tax, withheld his
signature. He said it was his inten
tion to study the bill to see whether
it was any improvement over exist
ing law. House leaders plan to put
the . bill through the house Monday
so that the senate will have two
days to consider it before the time
tentatively fixed for adjournment.
-''In closing their work today, the
conferees" fixed the corporation in
come tax. rate at. 12 per cent, the
figure .in the original house bill.
This increases the present rate by 2
Agree on Liquor Tax.
The conferees agreed .to the orig
inal house provision ' relating to
liquor taxes. This retains the pres
ent tax of $2.20 a gallon on distilled
spirits, with a provision for- an ad
ditional tax of $4.20 a gallon on such
spirits diverted for beverage pur
poses. The conferees retained the senate
amendment repealing the normal
exemption of $2,000 allowed corpora
tions, but the repeal would not ap
ply in the case of corporations hav
ing net incomes of $25,000 or less.
A new provision for taxing gain
from the sale of capital assets was
written in. It Is limited to individ
uals and provides that if the tax
payer elects to make a separate re
turn for the taxation of his income
from the sale of capital assets, he
shall pay a tax on the gain at the
corporation rate of 12 per cent on
the total of the gain.
v Cuts Revenue $130,000,000
In reducing the proposed corpora
tion income tax rate the conferees
reduced by $130,000,000 the esti-j
mated return from tbe bill. Treas-i
ury experts had calculated that the!
senate rate would yield $260,000,000
additional from the corporations, the
increase through this source being!
designed as a partial offset against
the loss of $450,000,000 to result
from repeal of the excess profits tax.
Some estimates were that from
$150,000,000 to $200,000,000 had
been, cut from the bill, which, as
it passed the senate, was designed tol

IN AN ANGRY CLASH
Watson and Williams Debate Rela
tive Merits of Newberry and
Ford in the Senate.
Washington, Nov. 21. The Ford
Newberry senatorial election contest
in Michigan was laid aside by the
senate tonight, probably not to come
formally before the body again for
several weeks. After a day of discus
sion, in which Henry Ford, who is
contesting the seating of Senator
Newberry, was both denounced and
defended and which was enlivened by
a tilt between Senator Williams of
Mississippi and Watson of Georgia,
democrats, the election controversy
was sidetracked to make way for the
revenue "bill. No agreement as to
date for a vote was reached.
The clash between Senators Wil
liams and Watson developed when
the latter attacked Mr. Ford and de
clared that "left over Wilsonites" in
the senate were seeking to retire Mr.
Newberry because he had opposed
, the league of nations.
I Mr. Williams said he regarded Mr.
Ford as "so far superior in altruism,
in world sense and in world vision
to the senator from Georgia (Mr.
I Watson) and myself, that I can hard
ly find words to express it." He was
interrupted by Mr. Watson, who de
clared he had not asked a "clean bill
of health" from Mr. Williams and ad
ded: "I stated that the war depart
ment records show that in various
items paid Henry Ford, he was paid
for materials never delivered, one
item being for tractors and the
amount was $5,000,000; that he
kept his eon out of war when the
sons of Senator Newberry .were In
Mr. Watson also Charged that Mr.
Ford had assessed his employes,
"blackmailed" them he said, for $50,
000 for his "expense account."
Mr. Williams denied Mr. Ford had
ever done such a thing.
Mr. Wiliams attempted to continue,
but Mr. Watson was shouting, "It's
falre," other senators were peeking
recognition from the chair and Sena
tor Heflin, democrat, Alabama, who
had held the floor when the ex
changes began, was vainly trying to
make himself heard.
Mr. Watson and Mr. Williams,
with two desks between them, stood
glaring at each other when order
was restored. Mr-. Williams, without
another word, picked up his hat and
