Washington -- Joseph Wellington Byrns, speaker of the house of rep- resentati ~es, died of a heart attack f01- lowed by a cerebral hemorrhage. He was 6(] years od. The cerebral hem- orrhage was preceded by a heart at- tack. Death occurred in the s~eak- ers apartment in the Mayflower hotel. The White H0use was informed im- mediately. Byrns, a Tennesseean who had a long career in congress, was active almost up to the last in the tremen- dous task of trying to clean up pend- ing legislation and adjourn congress. Friends believed the strain of this task may have been responsible for his death. Dr. George W. Calver, capitol physician, said the speaker had suffered from a bad heart condi- tion for several years as a result of a severe attack of influenza. He was at his accustomed post in the house duing the day and had showed no signs of illness. A stat~ funeral in the house cham- ber was held for the speaker, with notables headed by President Roose- velt in attendance. Burial was in Tennessee. The uneral was conduct- ed immediately after arrival. The chamber which the 66-year-old speaker had guided through history- making times met briefly and electe~ William B. Bankhead of Alabama to take his place. An attorney with 20 years' experience in tbo house, Bank- head hlmsef recovered only a few months ago from an illness possibly aggregated by the strain of his posi- tion as majority, leader. The senate called a halt it. its debate of the tax program, one of the vital measures Byrns had sought to steer to the sta- tute books before the opening of the national party conventions. It ad- |ourned out of respect to him until the hour of the funeral, when it as- sembled to go to the house chambers Movie Star Attacked by Jeering Mob Los Angeles--A shouting, -jeering mob, about 100 men and women, se- verely beat William Haines, former motion picture star, and Jimmy Shield's a companion, near Manhattan Beach and drove them and 19 friends out of town. At his exclusive antique and interior decorating shop in Holly- wood, Haines declared he did not know the reason for the mob's act. Duce's Troops Massacred In Ethiopia Rome---Italian n~ilitary authorities said that 30 air force soldiers on their way to Addis Ababa had been massa- cred. The Italian soldiers were es- corting a small column of automobile trucks loaded with supplies and were near the Ethiopian capital at the time of the attack.

The investigation wMch is being conducted by ~he Federal Trade Commission of the praczices of dis- tributors of milk and milk product~ has uncovered some intez~ing facts in connection with the Wisconsin cheese exchange. In Plymouth, Wi~onsin. each week a small group of men meet for ~e.purlmse of the bill is to pro- vent the. granting of unjustified ,preference~'~und privileges by whole- salem and nmn~ffaeturers to their chain s~ore customers. Practices of this nature give advantages to the large scale operators which m~e ou: of reach of the small merchant. This necessarily operaves to hamper the "little fe~:low" and if continued, will drive him out of busirm~. The method whereby unjustified I "quantity discounts" have been m-anted was well exemplified in the C_~od5 ear-Scars Roebuck Tire case reren~ly investigated by the Federal Trade Commission In that case it was shown that a few minutes to fix the prices of Goods~ear Com!eanies discriminated bulk cheese for that week. in favor of Sears Roebuck and Com- pany to the extent of from 29 to 40 For fifteen minutes or ne-halftper cent; that is, Sears Roebuck hour every Friday these men meet se- and determine the price of bulk cured discriminatory price prefer- cheese which forms the basis of the ences which a~ounted to approxi- price of 1~l~t product ~hroughout the COtt~l'y. The price of milk, evaporated milk and butter is indirectly affected by cheese prices. Through this mechan- ism a few men rep:~esenting wide- spread cheese and packing interests are able to depress or increase the price of their product and the raw mterial out of which the s~me is manufactured. The purpose of the Federal Trade Commission investigation for which $100,090 was appropriated by the first so,ion of the 74th Congress is to furnish basis for legislation dealing with practices of this rmture. The Pa~man-Robinson bill. out- lawing discrimination in price and terms of sale, prohibiting unustified rebates and brokerages and sup- pressing aehrertising allowances made to large scale purchasers, pascal the House on Thursda~v, May 28 by a vote of 290 to 16 and was sent to corderenoe~ maSely $41,000,000.00. It was shown that the Goodyeax Company concealed the prices at which it was selling tires to Seam Roebuck and Co. from its own sales organization. The price discrim- irmtion resulted in driving ou~ of business a large number of retail dealers and this reduction in the number of independent tire dealers in turn drove out of business numer- ous small tire merchants. The nat- ural result of tendencies of this na- ture is to result in absolute monopo- ly. It is the existences of such prac- tices ~hat the Patman-Robinson bill is aimed. This woudd result in inequalities ~taxrers in different locations and ~)uld give advantage to those located in the Eas~ near the large cortsuming circles. It would have had an adverse effect on the price of Minnesota dairy products sold in the East. This provision was e!imi~Ved be fore the bill passed. The only point in the bill which occasioned any ~a~ amount of de- bate was the so-called "basing point" provision. This provision would have required shippers to base their price on a F.O.B. basis and to charge a price equal to zhat charged by shippers in other locali- ties plus the freight or transporta- tion charges incurred in conveying the goods to the buyer. A '.ot of people wouldn't be'.ieve their own eyes ever: if they could see :hemselves as others see them. In a campaign, it often happens that those who tome out in favor of a candidate are the candidate"s big- best liability and sometimes the very thing that defeats him.
