It —(.'Pi— The house appropriations committee approved, in general, today President Roosevelt's recommendations for immediate emergency tefense and neutrality outlays and proposed that congress provide $267.197.908 for the army. navy, coast guard and federal bureau of investigation. The money would go for work alif-ady started or expected to be undertaken during the remainder of the fiscal year ending June 30. in rnvsnection with neutrality patrols, increases in and training of military personal, and counter-espionage. Preaend in September The whole outlay was proposed under the president's proclamation of a state of limited national emergency at the start of European war last September. Reporting as emergency appro- prijtion bill to the house, the committee cut (4.081.615 from $271.999.523 recommended by the executive tranch. The largest reduction was i2.021.572 in the item of food for me army. The committee said there lis-l been an excess appropriated for this purpose in earlier appropriation bills for this fiscal year, inak'ng the cut more or less a bookkeeping transaction. Ti:e White House recommenda tionf for the present emergency bill —which the house will consider tomorrow—were backed wit the argu merit that world conditions mad? them necessary. The appropriations tecnmmended by the committee for the four branches were: Army $116.218.345. navy $145.082.238. coast puard $4.422.325. federal bureau of investigation $1.475,000.

NAZI-BRITISH AIRMEN IN BATTLE 200 Reds Slain in Battle Near Lake Dismissal of Marenisco Inquiry Asked in Motion Benemer. Jan. t»—A motion "to dismiss and quash" the petition of Attorney General Thomas Read for a one-man grand jury investigation of Marenisco township affairs, was filed in Gogebic county circuit court today by counsel for Supervisor Ben Goldman of the township. Goldman's counsel contends in the motion that the petition "on its face is insufficient to confer jurisdiction upon the court," that the court is without jurisdiction to enter the order for the investigation, that the petition is without legal force and efficacy and insufficient to confer jurisdiction. i The motion also delates the al- i legations in the petition are too I general and insufficient to consti- tute a complaint under the law. and are an attempt to deprive the officers of the township of their liberty without due process of law; that the petition does not specify and identify the person or persons chargeable with alleged offenses; that the alleged offenses are not specified with sufficient definiteness. It is further declared in the motion that the proceedings have not been initiated or Instituted upor proper legal authority or in conformity to statutory requirements; and that "an investigation, examination, or audit was not ordered upon a revest in writing signed by at least 25 per cent of the registered electors of the township, setting for the specifically the reason therefore, as required'' by law. THE NATIONAL WHIRLIGIG -NEWS BEHIND THE NEWS" Washington BY RAY TUCKER POSITION—All political roads at Washington lead to the homely office of John Nance Garner since he reopened his "bureau of education' on Capital Hill. Four Presidential candidates, including Postmas ter General Farley and Senator Burton K. Wheeler, huddled with the leading Democratic Presidential prospect within the last few days. While keeping his own counsel, the V. P. has given the definite impression that he believes President Roosevelt wants to be drafted for a third term. A ereat believer in the two-term tradition, Mr. Garner IK determined to prevent F. D R '& renomination. as he virtually warned when he declared himself in the race without the usual "ands. ifs ond buts". The Texan has also indurated that, if necessary to accomplish this aim. he will throw his rtreneth to any likely winner— cxctnt Mr. Roosevelt—as he tossed his California-Texas batch of dele- •ates to the President in 1932 Therefore he has encouraged Senate: Wheeler and National Chairman Farley to enter the race openly, without waiting for word from the White House on the President's lM n intentions. Mr. Garner regards the men from Montana and New York as helpmates rather than rivtJs. But so far. principally because they don't care to antagonize the popular Mr. Roosevelt, they have resisted the V.

Washington, Jan. »—«•>—While President Roosevelt and Senator Taft CR-Ohio) continued their argument over government economy, Budget Director Harold D. Smith said today that the federal agencies reorganized by the chief executive last summer cut 5.006 employes off the payroll in three months. Smith said, however t»it the total civilian personnel of the government increased 9.470 to 937.367 from July 31 to November 1 because of additions in agencies connected with national defense and neutrality. Offered Handsome Price Mr. Roosevelt cited figures yesterday to show that a program outlined by Senator Taft (R-Ohio> for balancing the multi-billion dollar budget would save only $8,000.000 yearly. That would include, he said, the elimination of the national planning board, which he contended wou'd save the government a lot of money in the long run. and the disaster loan corporation, which he pointed out spent most of it* money in Ohio flood relief. The president had offered a "handsome prize" to Taft. a candidate for the Republican presidential nomination, if he could show how to balance the budget. Taft responded in a speech In Chicane last week. Tne presidential rejoinder came at a press conference late yesterday, with every indication that he was not ready to award the prize. Taft retorted quickly with a statement saying: "The president has picked out some of the examples I gave of bureau, which might be eliminated but says that they only total $8.000.000 which, in new deal style, he considers to be nothing. "He says nothing of the 75.000 ex See ECONOMY—Page • BROWN IS NEED OF Mm TAX Little Hope of Retiring Fund Deficit Unless Levies Are Imposed. Lansing. Jan. It—MV-Auditor General Vernon J. Brown says he sees little hope for Michigan to retire its $30,000,000 general fund deficit without imposing more taxes unless the state legislature compel the counties to carry a bigger share of the cost of government. Brown said he considered a reduction or elimination of certain services would provide the most effective means of cutting governmental costs, and that this could best be accomplished when the counties supported them. He pointed out that local governments draw most of tneir revenues from real estate taxes, and that the property taxpayer was "the real howler who will demand economy." He said he felt Michigan might continue indefinitely to meet its bills by its present system of hand- to-mouth financing unless unusual expenditures drained the treasury of cash at an awkward time. "Then," he said, "we would be flat broke."

TIB mm Chief Says U. S. Forces Inadequate Against 'Have- Not' Powers. Washington. Jan. M—W—The navy's chief of operations asserted today that the United States navy could not defend the western hemisphere "comfortably" against a coalition of the "have-not" powers. Appearing before the house naval affairs committee. Admiral Harold Star* said the navy had come to consider a coalition attack as a possibility because "the international political situation is quite different from what we conceived it might be two years ago." OaUnt Be Dane Stark discussed the situation In response to a question by Rep. Mott (R-Ore), writ, asked whether the United States could defend the hemisphere against a coalition of Germany, Italy. Japan and Russia, which he described as "the so-called havf-not powers." Hesitantly, the admiral replied it could not be done "comfortably. 1 ' Stark added that "with the site of navy we have now." the nation might be hard-pressed to protect the Atlantic coast from Maine to southern Brazil, and the Pacific as well "We might, have to sacrifice southern Brazil for the time being." he declared. The coalition, he said, is one possibility "that we should be prepared to meet as long as we see any danger in that direction." Re also said an attempt of any additional foreign powers to establish raval bases in this hemisphere "should be viewed with grave concern." Only Need the Maney Earlier, the reviving controversy ove- naval improvements in the harbor at Guatr prompted Stark to advise the committee that naval shine and seaplanes and commercial aircraft would use the port even under the "hazardous circumstances" resulting from lack of improvements. He had told the committee already that authorization for the improvements was unnecessary. The navy had full authority, he said, so that congreM has but to furnish the money. EKPEtT CLOSE Open Hearings on Bill Extending Program Tomorrow. ODDS FAVOR APPROVAL Washington. Jan.

P.ep. Boland (D-Pa) is understood to be considering his position in the light of how the reduced excise tax may affect the Pennsylvania oil and roal industries. Proponents of the bill hope to win the support of Representatives West (D-Tex) and Robertson (D-Va) because of the collapse of negotiations for pacts with Argentina and Uruguay. Robertson had opposed reducing the tariff on turkeys imported from Argentina, while West had objected to proposed duty reductions on Argentine livestock, turkey and flaxseed. Pep.

WashinrlMi, Jan. ia_<*v-State and labor department officials worked with German authorities today on an effort to arrange an early return home for the 575 officers and sailors of the scuttled German liner Columbus.

To evade British attempts to capture the Germans at sea. the planners decided to scatter the men, a few to each vessel used.

Pa, Jan. —A fellow officer testified today that State Trooper Benjamin Franklin shot 14-year-old Joan Stevens to death in a police car June 5 because she threatened twice "to blow our brains out" with what appeared to be an automatic. Later the "automatic" was found to be a toy pistol. In a tense, packed courtroom Private Edward Swatji. 24. only eye-witness to the slaying, told a Jury trying Franklin on murder and manslaughter charges that the 33-yesr-cld trooper "fired one or two shots" at the girl as she sat in the back seat. The state Is demanding a second-degree conviction, which carries a ma^tinwr 1 penalty of 90 years. Swatji said Franklin accompanied him when he kept a rendezv with the girl, daughter of a mineworker, on a street near her home. The appointment was made at her request, the witness said, when she said she had information about a bank robbery plct. Swatji said the shooting occurred after the girl demanded that she be taken to nearby Lansford. "You'll take me to Lansford or 111 blow your brains out." he quoted her. Then she pulled what appeared to be a gun and pointed it at Franklin. Swatji said. Earlier.

Ski troops were completing the work of mopping up the fleeing Russians e7u»l4l£and l«3d divisions of the Red army, which were routed and thrown into retreat after thousands of them were allied. The area directly east of Lake Kianta. for some distance north and south, is in Finnish hands. Flans 1 Biggest VkWry Fighting is continuing with reports that another Russian division is being surrounded at Kukkammo to the south. The biggest victory of the war for the Finns was the rout of the 44th division southeast of Suomussalmi along a four and one-half mile stretch of highway. Evidence of the fierce three-day battle which began Jan. 5 could still be seen in scores of trucks scattered along the highway, and cannon with piles of hundreds of shells and shelkaps still beside them. A Finnish general revealed that victory might have belonged to the Red army if it had counter-attacked strongly. He expressed belief the counter-attack was not made because of lack of reenforce- ments and disorganisation. Finnish losses were small in the three days of fighting, a Finnish colonel in the Raate sector said. compared with the thousands of tssians killed and more than 1.000 taken pristoner.

Jan. » — (ft — The air ministry announced tonight that royal air force planes had dropped bombs near the German island of Sylt while "on patrol" last night over enemy seaplane bases. The announcement failed to mention whether the British planes met any German opposition. (Germany announced, however, thai three of nine invading British planes had been shot down over Helgoland Bight in the early afternoon). Danish reports of heavy firing and glimpses of searchlights before dawn had indicated there was aerial fighting near Sylt. The air ministry said that damage to Danish property near the frontier was reported in Copenhagen dispatches. WIB agate BeitMntMNs "Should it be established that British aircraft were responsible for damage, full restitution will be made the Danish government," the ministry declared. The 1.000-ton British steamer Upminster was disclosed to have been another victim of German air raids on British shipping yesterday when at least 12 vessels were attacked. Three of the Upminxter's crew of 10 were killed. Survivors said they were machine- gunned when they took to lifeboats. The damaged steamer, however, was kept afloat by her bulkheads.
