How are they answered by officials of the Farm Security Administration in charge of the project? Why It Was High First, as to high cost. The officials admit that the cost Was high; but they assert that special circumstances made this inevitable. In the fall of 1935, when the Federal Transient Program was ended, outside sources insisted that this project immediately provide Work for 1000 Washington transients. This meant, first, rushing plans from table to field before the entire project was charted, with the result that changes had to be made later and much work had to be scrapped and done over. It meant, secondly, that relief labor —generally Conceded to be only semi- efficient—had to be used. Labor costs in Greenbelt, for instance, totaled almost 70 per cent of the whole, as against the private contractor's cus- Whisked from Life as Professor to be House of Rothschild Head tomary 45 per cent.

A very good interest la being shown from night to night. Sunday night the evangelist talked on the death of Christ, and the merits Jhat we receive from it.' He said that it was on account of sin, that Christ died, and that sin has been the grief of God from all the eternity, for this purpose Christ was slain from the foundation of the world. The consequences of Adams sin are every where today, and among all people, and who can recover us from such. Only Christ, he said. Mr. Tosti said that Christ is the world's saviour, and that if man is ever saved from sin it will have to be through Him. Salvation is in none other, for there is no other name given under heaven whereby men can be saved only thru Jesus. He was the world's greatest sacrifice and Calvary was the place. And' that sacrifice an(J blood that was shed there on that day is the only hope for this world, and -its salvation.

Walsh, pastor. countants feel justified in charging off about ?5,000,000 of the project's cost as excess labor costs—really a relief expenditure chargeable against the nation as a whole, and not properly an assessment against future Greenbelt residents. •Couldn't Lay Off Labor There were other factors to increase the cost, too. The government had to pay more for land, just because it was the government, than a private contractor would, it is agued; in the same way it was subject to delays in the filling and delivering of orders which resulted in wastage of labor—and the government could not lay off the relief labor at such times. In addition, Greenbelt's builders say that even without making these deductions, the houses actually cost $5,500 apiece, and that it is a gross distortion to put the figure at $16,000. For besides dwellings, there were built business center structures, two schools, a road system, a sewage disposal plant, a water supply system, recreation facilities, and so on. Furthermore, they, By MILTON BRONNER NBA Service Staff Correspondent LONDON—The House of Rothschild -synonymous with gold arid the profits of gold and the power of gold—) is todny headed by a young man whose first interest is in biology, whereas the man he succeeded .had fleas. Literally thousands of them. In fact, when he wanted a particular flea, he bought 5000 to make sure of getting the One he was after. All of which is a way of saying that the third Baron Rothschild is 26-year- old Nathaniel Mayer Victor Rothschild, who, when the title came to him recently, was leading the quiet life of a don at Cambridge University, where he lectured and pursued research on biological subjects. Flea Fancier The man he succeeds, the late Lionel Walter Rothschild, the second baron, differed from all his ancestors in that banking and control over international affairs had n o interest for him whatsoever. He practically withdrew from the great, historic financial house and levoted all his time to natural history. He spent hundreds of thousands of Rothschild gold for animal specimens. At his great estate at Tring Baron Lionel Rothschild maintained one of the finest private zoos in the world. He not only collected wild living animals, but also dead specimens. His collection of bird skins was the greatest in the world. Some years ago he sold it to the American Museum of Natural History in New York for ?500,000. His reason was a need for ready cash—something new in a Rothschild: At death he still had a vast collection of other animals, particularly insects. His butterflies ran into the hundreds of thousands. He had the greatest collection of fleas in the world. He has left these collections to the British nation. No Longer Richest Bankers Victor, third Baron Rothschild, is a nephew of the second Baron. Like most Englishmen of wealth and position, he went to a great "public school," Harrow, and then to Cambridge University. While at Cambridge, he met Barbara Hutchinson, daughter of the famous lawyer, St. John Hutchinson.

Mrs. Boardem—It's that faith-cure doctor who's got the toothache. *h hems *lves wUl eventually be who prorated among 3000, not 885 units— for practically everything in Greenbelt except the dwellings is built to take care of a city four times the present size. Will Last Forever But to get back to the dwellings: Greenbelt's builders say that if the $5,000,000 relief labor and surplus land charge is deducted, the remaining 18,400,000 will be returned to the govern- ment'at the end of 60 years, from surplus town income compounded in a sinking fund. The government cost, figured thus, amounts to a direct interest subsidy for GO years—and if the project were built under the Wagner-Steagall Housing Act, it would enjoy a greater bonus as well as direct operating subsidies. Nor are the officials through yet. The $5500 actual cost of each dwelling, was a professor there. The young people fell in love and Barbara was admitted to the Jewish faith, mar- The New Lord and Lady Rothschild The wedding took place according to the old-fashioned Orthodox Jewish rites, being held at Tring so the groom's 90-year-old grandmother could see it. They have two children, the heir to his father's title being 16 months old. Victor becomes head of the house at a time when Rothschild no longer means the most powerful banking institution in the world. The Rothschilds are still enormously wealthy, but no longer wield the preponderant power they once enjoyed. For instance, in England the Big Five—five powerful banks with branches all over the United Kingdom—far exceed the House of Rothschild in the money they control. It has been estimated that in , t^ f n --*-" — n»i» wuiiiniMi^u ilia I. Jill rymg the future Baron four years ago. 170 years of active business (the family fortune was founded in Frankfurt) the Rothschilds owned two billion dollars. This means all the branches of the family which at one time were in active business in England, Germany, France, Italy and Austria. Today in England alone tlie Big Five control more money than that. If a Hitler ever tried his non-Aryan theories in Britain, he would trouble, in business, politics and society, some of the greatest families in the land. For the Rothschilds, by intermarriage, are connected with the Earl of Derby, the uncrowned King of Lancashire; with the house of Roseberry, one of whom, a Prime Minister of England, wed a Rothschild; with , the proud houses of the Marquess of Crew, Lord Halifax, Lord Cholmondoley and many others. Court Issue Holds (Continued from Page One) States' and appealed ;:or nationwldi public faith in "our claims of wish ing'the best fo'r our country." The Minnesota lawyer spoke over the radio on the eve of the bar's convention which seems certain to bring up the court reorganization controversy before a distinguished assemblage of governors, United States aen- alors and court judges. Stinchf ield said that President Roosevelt possessed what seemed "to amount to a hatred of the legal profession," and he asserted that any struggle which might arise between the president and :he law profession would be unequal jecause the president has "quite un- jelievable powers." "There is little he cannot do if he chooses to exercise, all his powers," Stinchiefld said. "One must believe that this (the resident's) hatred arises out of the act that the lawyers are the ones as 0 whom he finds the greatest difficulty in controlling, either by persua- ion or orders, their thoughts and their ictions." "If lawyers were seeking selfish :nds," Stirtchfield said, "they could not but wish a continuance of the rad- cal tendencies of the present admin- stration in order that there might be 1 continuance of this legislation which esults in so much employment for awyers. "You may ask any accountant or any jusinessman for information as to how luch he must employ lawyers nowa- lays as compared with what used to ie necessary before develobment of he innumerable forms of taxes and he passage of other srtange laws now .ppearing on the statutes books. You vill find that the return to lawyers has been beyond all measure over .vhat-any other laws ever made possible. Yet all that the lawyers do indicates their opposition to the continuance of those taxes and the continuance of those New Deal enactments. 1 PAQE itfendeavor at Last Missing Since Sept, 13, Sloop Is C6htaeted'b$ *.: British Stearrier ^ LONDON, Big.—Tlie famous Lutihft J • bell at Lloyds rang Monday Ut We • second time within a week to aflno&tee the finding of British yacht Etttfcafor I, successful challenger in America's cup.

Repudiating Earlier "Follies" ' There have been three major phases of "brain-trusting"— First, the Moley era, featuring the early one and only, original "brains trust"—so named by Roosevelt; Second, the period of Richberg, Tugwell and Frank Walker; Third, the current phase starring a group which stands close with Roosevelt on a general program which repudiates what it calls the New "Deal's earlier "economic follies."

It is the cheaply house, not the Greenbelt house, that really costs too much, say these officials. Besides, continue these officials— when you figure the cost of a low- rent project there are intangibles to be considered: the crime bill, the bill for sickness and the general loss of good citizenship levied by the tenants' former life in the slums. This cannot be figured in cash, but it is argued that it levied a direct toll on the public's purse just the same. Properly of Whole People And, lastly, the officials say that dential cables and memoranda to Roosevelt, which were highly critical. Secretary Hull found Moley reporting that the British were bamboozling our delegation, and that "the only two American delegates who knew what it was all about" were Sfenatora Couzens and Pittman.

A. Berle and Hugh Johnson, then representing B. M. Baruch, on the edges. Moley became th man whom Roosevelt needed to gather data and dope for speeches. He was most prominent of th group because he traveled with F. D. R, on campaign trains as an aide and chief ghost writer. He had a practical experience background as well as his recent professional research in governmental and political science. Tried Jo Do It All After election Moley came back as F. D. R.'s chief intimate adviser. Louis Howe, although as close in as any man could be, was intensely jealous. But Moley was practical, hard-boiled and urbane. A big, husky French-Irishman who could "take it," he tried to do eberything for Roosevelt. In the critical emergency period he got people to do big jobs and sought to take economic policy and legislative prob- lefms to his bosom. Government at first was a vacuum, with terrific distrust by the New Deal- | ers for the Old Dealers who had failed. New men and new policies and new laws had to come hot off the griddle. Everyone was confused. Inevitably, Moley made many quick answers when he didn't know the answers, and often made decisions on insufficient information. He took his political life in his hands. Sharpshooters began to snipe at him. -Moley went to London triumphaly. Serving as an asistant secretary of state, he dwarfed Secretary Hull in importance. Many other things happened quickly.
