To cry doesn't seem to help a bit. £ Mister Editor, do you know what s the sole cause of this depression? Our country is in the hands of the aig money men. They are the ones who are profiteering.

Just like Mr. Rodgers said, there's not a farmer in Hempstead county who couldn't use from $50 to $75 right today for clothes and other things he needs in the home.

Copyright Associated Press VIENNA, Austria, — (£>)— Faced with death by hanging, Otto Pianette and Frank Holzweber went on trial Monday before a military court. The authorities said Pianette confessed to killing Cnancellor Dollfuss, while Holzweber is charged with directing the Nazi putsch which plunged Austria into civil war. Although it was rumored both prisoners had been beaten neither showed signs of ill-treatment as they walked into the courtroom with their heads high. The prosecutor said Pianette claimed' he shot Dollfuss accidentally after it had been agreed there would be no slaughter.

(The word demarche in cowmon diplomatic usage means a statement of position, or ultimatum—in the present case a statement of position re- . quiring an answer.) From Munich came even stronger rumors regarding Italy's attitude. Well-informed sources there said Italy will demand dissolution of Hitler's Storm Troops and the Schutz Staffel, blick-shirted, picked guards. It was said Italy's demarche will take the form of a sharp note demanding an answer within 48 hours. Mussolini, it was understood in Munich, has instructed his ambassadors to notify the interested powers of his intention and to suggest to them that Nazi organizations such as the Storm Troops are a constant men•ace to Austria's independence.
