From the results of these and other elections in a number of States, observers will seek to read political foreshadowings of events during the 1932 presidential cam paign. Os the five special elections called to All vacancies in the House, the outcome in two usually Republican districts is considered doubtful. They are the first Ohio and the eighth Michigan. The Democrats, who have formed the House minority since 1918, have assailed the Hoover administration. Whatever the election results, they will be gen erally interpreted as the political sentiment toward the Chief Exec utive. G. P. O. Best Is Tie. Should the Rej üblicans return Rep resentatives from the three seats tra ditionally theirs, the most they could do would be to tie the Democrats at 216, as the Democrats have virtually been conceded victory in the other two districts, which ere normally in their column.

By (he Associated Pres*. A new set of figures on the deficit today thrust the question of increasing taxes farther to the front of adminis tration problems. Word that the Treasury ended the first four months of this fiscal year with $661,120,850 in red on its books I went immediately to the White House. President Hoover dees not expect to state his position on new taxes in the immediate future, however. The budget is in preparation with Mr. Hoover and his advisers attempt i ing to keep it down. All Government I departments are under orders to reduce ! where possible. • Tax Proposals Grow. Curtailed spending on the part of the Government would put brakes on the deficit —now threatening to go far be yend the one billion mark before Julv I—but it would not raise money to meet the arrears which have already accumulated. Proposals foil increased taxation are growing as the time for the next Con gress Approaches. Not long ago it be came known th? administration is studying the feasibility of special sales taxes on a selected list of luxury articles. Senator Reed of Pennsylvania, whose views have coincided oftentimes in the past with those pf Secretary Mellon, urged a sales levy. Many other Senators and House mem bers of both parlies have said, how ever, they favored an increase in the levies on large incomes and strengthen ing inheritance tax laws in preference to the sales tax idea. $171,514,528 Last Year.

METHODS OF AWARDING WORK ARE UNDER FIRE Postmaster General, Shipping Board and Ship Operators to Be Called. By the Associated Press, j An investigation into the administra i tlon of $56,600,000 ocean and air mall ! funds and contracts will be instituted by the House Appropriations Committee in December. Representative Wood, chairman of the last House appropriations group, today announced plans had been completed for the inquiry. Numerous complaints, the Indiana Republican said, had been received from air and steamship line operators over, existing contracts and the methods un-' der which they were awarded. Postmaster General Brown is charged with the administration of the funds, but W. Irving Glover. Second Assistant Postmaster General, supervises their ex penditures directly. The ocean mail funds last year amounted to $36,600,000, of which $7.- 000.000 is for foreign ocean airmail. The domestic airmail subvention, under the lecently enacted Watres act, is $20,- 000,000 annually. The ocean airmail contracts are awarded to steamship lines which have been certified by the Shipping Board Wood said Postmaster General Brown, Shipping Board commissioners, aircraft! { and ship operators holding contracts and those complaining against the con tracts would be called before the com mittee. COMPLAINTS BEHIND MOVE. Independent Airline Operators Dislike Methods of Awarding Contracts. Many complaints, made by mdepend- ! ent airline operators, against the methods of awarding contracts for i I carrying of airmail are expected to ' j come before the investigators, headed : by Representative Wood of Indiana. It is anticipated that the committee will go into the question of contracts for service between the National Capi tal and Atlantic City and the anticipat | ed abandonment by the Post Office De partment of the Department of Com merce lighted airway from Washington to Norfolk, Va., as a part of its inquiry. Payments by the Fost Office Depart ment for airmail service on several lines also are scheduled for investiga tion it is understood. On one of these lines payments of $17.30 per pound were made for carrying the mails, ac cording to the latest official postal ; figures. Contract for mail service on 1 this route, between Albuquerque and El > I Paso, was awarded without competition j or bidding. I Complaints against alleged framingj : of specifications so as to exclude com- j I petitive b.dding on several important , mail routes, chiefly the midtranscon tinental and southern transcontinental lines, have been laid before members of Congress and probably will come with in the scope of the committee’s inquiry. Charges that virtually all contracts awarded under the terms of the Watres airmail act have been distributed by the Post Office Department to four giant air transport combinations, with out bidding or competition, as "exten- I sions" of existing lines, have been made ; and may be taken up by the com- 1 ! mittee.

October 14 Cyr took the oath of i Governor of Louisiana and charged • Long had vacated th? office through his | election to the United States Senate. , Long scoffed at the claim and posted a guard about th? capitol to prevent an official entry of Cyr. After Cyr took the Governor’s oath. Alvin L. King, president pro tempore of the State Senate, took over the lieutenant governorship, contending Cyr's action had vacated that office. The gubernatorial revolution pre cipitated a general clamor for the jobs. Claimants in this State and others took the oath of Governor, lieutenant gov ernor and United States Senator—some seriously and some facetiously. Gov. Long failed to regard the matter seriously until he was forced to call off a proposed bond sale because bidders were uncertain about who could sign documents officially.
