Congressman Curry Will Press Amendment to Fight Reciprocity.

Unwilling to lose the present $600,000 a year obtained from the sale of Maryland tags in the District, officials in Baltimore plan to fight to a limit Congressman Charles F. Curry's efforts to force a reciprocal arrangement between the District and Maryland.

May Present New Bill.

On the other hand, Congressman Curry announces that if the amendment to the agricultural appropriations bill he is sponsoring, which would limit Federal road aid to States given full reciprocal rights, is unsuccessful, he will introduce a bill covering the subject.

Congressman Curry outlined his plans late yesterday afternoon in a conference with Burt Warford, of the automobile division of the Department of Commerce; A. M. Loomis, representing the National Grange; M. O. Eldridge, of the American Automobile Association, and Pike Johnson of the National Automobile Chamber of Commerce.

Expects Defeat in Senate.

The Senate subcommittee which will decide whether the amendment is to be offered as a part of the agricultural supply bill when it is reported to the Senate, is composed of Senators McNary, Jones of Washington, Lenroot, Capper, McKinley, Overman, Smith, and Harris.

While many Baltimore citizens agree that the reciprocal arrangment should go through, those who appear to be in authority determinedly oppose it.  John N. Mackall, chairman of the Maryland State roads commission, declared yesterday that he felt certain Senators France and Weller would be successful in defeating the amendment.
