Correspondent Charged with Spreading Slanderous Rumors. TOKYO, Feb. 2 (/P)— James R. Young, of Springfield, 111., correspondent for International News service, was charged formally today with violating that part of the army criminal code relating to dissemination of false and slanderous rumors, foreign office spokesman Yakichiro Suma disclosed. It was . hot known whether the case would come before a civil or military court, but the latter was said to be probable. Under the army criminal.C9de, separate from civil law, the maximum penalty, in the event o f conviction; would Since his arrest Jan. : 21, Young has been questioned 'almost daily at metropolitan police headquarers. * Suma indicated that when this examination was concluded Young probably would be bound over for imemdiate trial. The foreign office spokesman said the alleged offenses occurred when! Youing visited China between Oct. 16 and Jan. 6, and after his return. Suma said British Ready For Any Nazi Plane Attacks LONDON, Feb. 2 (/P)— The royal air force is prepared to reply in kind to large scale German bombing of Great Britain expected in the spring, authoritative sources asserted today. Speedy, fighting planes with machine guns in the tails to permit fire in any direction were described as Britain's means of meeting the anticipated attack by a new German bomber built for speedy performance at high altitudes. "There is evidence the Germans are pressing construction of fast, long range bombers," an aviation source said. He described the new type as a twin-motored Junkers bomber, JU-88, carrying a crew of three or four and three guns, one in the nose and two in the fuselage. "T^wltn^triis '"weapon" 1 in his Mfi'dsT it seems unlikely the enemy will capitulate without attempting a desperate aerial attack on Britain's vital targets," the source declared. He said Germany probably would use the new bomber in "considerable numbers." Prime Minister Chamberlain was given a "go ahead" signal by the house of commons last night to conduct the war under his own pro- the correspondent was charged "firstly, with sending from Shanghai and elsewhere to newspapers and magazines in the United States and''Japan some 38 extremely slanderous news reports regarding the Japanese forces in various parts of China; and, secondly, with spreading fabrications and rumors regarding actions of Japanese forces in various parts of China among, Japanese and foreigners in Tokyo between Jan. 6 and 19." It was believed the charges were based partly on speeches Young made in Shanghai and Tokyo. Suma said the United States embassy had expressed interest in Young's case but had made no formal protest or representations. 568-POUND MAN DIES OF PNEUMONIA TODAY NEW HAVEN, Conn., Feb. 2 (/P)— A dozen policemen helped two ambulance attendants today to - take John H. Taft to a hospital, where the 568-pound truck driver died of pneumonia shortly after his arrival. Taft, affectionately known as • "Tiny" to a host of friends here, weighed 700. pounds until a short while ago when dieting and his gram as an opposition demand for a special economic co-ordinator in the war cabinet was voted down. The house rejected, 185 to 90, a Laborite motion for the addition of a minister to plan "the resources of the nation for successful prosecution of the war." Limited leaves for the British expeditionary force, cancelled Jan. 14, have been resumed and the first group of soldiers will return from the front tomorrow, the war office reported. * Twenty suvivors from the 5,625- ton torpedoed Greek steamer Eleni Stathatos reached the Irish -shore yesterday and told of having to throw the bodies of 13 frozen comrades from the open boats in which the survivors spent lour days in the icy Atlantic. The crew escaped in two boats as j their vessel went down last Sunday. The seamen said a German submarine fired the torpedo. FR OPPOSED TO FARMBILLCUT President Stands Pat on Requested $900,000,000 Appropriation. HYDE PARK, N. Y., Feb. 2 (/P)— President Roosevelt told reporters in firm tones today he was standing pat on his budget and a $900,000,000 agricultural appropriation for the year beginning July 1. He said the house appropriations committee, which slashed the farm appropriation bill 20 per cent below budget estimates, had made perfectly terrific cuts. The bill is pending in the house. Volunteering to discuss the agricultural appropriations at a press conference in the library of his home here, Mr. Roosevelt said he •saw- -no-reason - why^ssme -excerpts from his budget message should not be reprinted. He had had some excerpts typed out, and he read them to newsmen. They said: "I have carefully checked the individual estimates under these broad categories and I am satisfied that no lower figures can be attained except at the expense of impairing the efficiency with which laws are administered or of work- HELSINKI, Feb. 2 (^—Tank- pushed armored sledges led a violent Red arm onslaught on Finland's Karelian isthmus defenses today, apparently timed with a Russian offensive. Russian planes were reported by the Finnish high command to have dropped "many" patrols by parachute on the isthmus but defense troops captured or killed the invaders. After a battle on the isthmus, far into the night, the high command said "the enemy was repulsed." The communique, covering yesterday's fighting, also reported the Russians beaten back after attacks against Finnish-held islands in Lake Ladoga, northeast of the isthmus font. The coincidence between the sudden spurt of So'viet attacks, accompanied by widespread air- raids, and the new offer of Finnish President Kyosti Kallio yesterday of "an honorable peace" told Finns what, if any, was likely to be Moscow's answer. Planes Driven Off. Today Helsinki residents sought bomb shelters again when 10 Russian planes appeared on the outskirts of the capital, but anti-aircraft fire turned the planes back. The alarm lasted from 1:10 to 1:48 Pro-Roosevelt Sentiment Is Strong, Western Demos Sat; Committccmen Arriving in Washington for Meeting on Monday. By D. HAROLD OLIVER WASHINGTON, Feb. 2 (/P)— Early arrivals from the west for Monday's meeting of the Democratic national committee reported today that strong sentiment existed in their states for renomination of President Roosevelt. Lynn Brodrick. Kansas national committeeman, said: "Kansas is strong for Roosevelt and I feel the same way." Ed A. Carroll, national committeeman for Washington state, expressed belief his state would ''favor a third term if it were voting today," while Charles J. Vogcl, new member from North Dakota, asserted: "My state is very pro-Roosevelt, but I have no statement further than that on a third term." The committee is slated to pick a time and place for the party's pres- p. m. (5:10 to 5:48 a. m., CST). It was announced officially that bombing activity yesterday was fairly heavy, with 20 localities, mostly rural, attacked. Two persons were killed and seven wounded, it was said. The Finns charged that civlians frequently were machine-gunned during- the raids, which were mostly in south Finland. The offensive in Karelia, where entrenched Finns were reported holding against the new-style Russian battle tactics, was aimed directly at the seaport of Viipuri, Finland's second largest city, and pivoted on attacks in the vicinity of Summa, 20 miles to the south. At the same time, a Finnish army communique reported Russian a,t- idential nominating convention. As the western committeemen talked of current trends, reports persisted that the convention date —many favor early August—should be selected by a subcommittee after the Republicans choose theirs Feb. 16. FROZEN BODIES FOUND IN STREET SHANGHAI, Feb. 2 (/P) — The frozen bodies of approximately 100 persons, including 80 infants, were picked up in the streets today as a wave of bitter cold brought acute suffering to thousands of Chinese in Shanghai. Hot rice was distributed by a fleet of trucks operated by the Salvation Army. Reports from outside the city idicaled hundreds had perished as a 24-hour snowstorm swept the lower Yangtze valley. PLOT' AGAINST DIES IS PROBED BY COMMITTEE House Members Quizzed About Conspiracy to 'Kill Off Inquiry. WASHINGTON, Feb. 2 (/P)—Members of the Dies committee, meeting behind closed doors, questioned three of their house colleagues today about what Rep. Thomas (R.- N.J.), has said was "a plot to kill off" the committee. The three were Representatives Coffee (D.-Wash.), Larrabee (D.- Ind.), and Ramspeck (D.-Ga.). Committee members said they at- Democratic Chairman James A. Farley has predicted both date and j city would be decided Monday. The committee will meet only one day and then pay a courtesy call on President Roosevelt Tuesday morning: Talk of a convention site still centered on Chicago, Philadelphia and San Francisco. The two latter cities have indicated that they would submit bids, but there was an unconfirmed report that Chicago tacks repulsed in the Petsamo area, would make no financial offer, al- ing undue hardship upon individuals or economic groups.

"We must not only guard the gains we have made but we musl press on to obtain full employment for those who have been displaced by machines as well as for the 5,000,000 net addition to the labor force since 1929.

The president made no mention of a possibility of a veto should congress enact a bill carrying substantially less than the budget recommended for government agricultural activities. of the far north, on the Sallajronj^ just' S6ove~the" "Afclic"'circle and''on' the Lake Ladoga front in the southeast. An Associated Press correspondent with the Finnish armies on the Mannerheim line said Red army infantry charged behind the advancing tank-sledge barrier on the isthmus front after six hours of artillery preparation. In this new assault, in which' 130 fighting and bombing planes participated, machine-gunners and riflemen, on the sledges protected the 'tanks from Finnish grenade throwers. The fighting lasted through the night but Finnish officers said the defense line was intact and that 15 Soviet batteries had been silenced.

PRAISES LABOR LAWS. APPLETON, Wis., Feb. 2 (/Pi- Reuben Peterson, chairman of the Wisconsin public service commission, told the Wisconsin constructors' convention last night that the 1939 legislature gave the state labor laws which he believes will be models for the nation. LEAGUE IS DISBANDED BY DIRECTING BOARD NEW YORK, Feb. 2 (#•)—Reorganization of local units was left to individual communities today by the American League for Peace and Democracy, which disbanded yesterday after a seven-year existence. The league, which the Dies congressional committee called a Communist "front," claimed 14,000 members in 117 cities. The league's board of directors said: , The coming of the war which the American League for Peace and Democracy has for some years en- deavared to prevent . . . has created a situation in which a different program and type of organization are needed to preserve democratic rights in wartime and thereby help teep the United States out of war. Therefore the board . to cease activities." THE WEATHER Forecast for Wisconsin: Fair to' night and Saturday; rising temperature Saturday.

Other political developments as the vanguard of the Democratic leaders trooped into Washington: 1. Official word was conveyed to the president and Farley that the Alaskan delegation to the national convention — first to be selected — had been instructed to cast its six votes for Mr. Roosevelt, and for Farley as second choice. 2. In New Jersey, a slate of candidates for delegates pledged to a third term was filed by the state Democratic organization of Mayor Frank Hague of Jersey City. 3. Senator Smith (D-SC), who won renomination in 1938 over the president's opposition, told reporters that "Roosevelt may be renom- inated, but if he is, goodbye Democratic party as. it has been known all these years." 4. Paul V. McNult, Democratic presidential candidate, told reporters in New York that he saw no ALIENS KILLED BY JAPB0MBS SHANGHAI, Feb. »2 (/P)— About 100 persons, including 10 Occidentals, were reported today to have been killed or injured when Japanese planes bombed a bridge on the French-operated Hanoi- Kun- ming railway about 50 miles inside Chinese territory. Reports reaching foreign quarters here did not give the nationality of the foreigners, but many Frenchmen are employed on the railway, a vital supply line for the Chinese. It links the capital of Yunan province with the French Indo-china port of Hanoi. The bombing occurred yesterday. Dispatches said that 27 planes participated, in the raid, which resulted in destruction of a northbound train. Most of those killed were believed to have been passengers on the train. A party of British seamen from the crews or the gunboats Gannet and Falcon were reported to have been aboard a • southbound train which was near the scene of the bombing. The seamen, enroute to the coast for home duty after tying up their ships at Chungking, aided in the rescue work. Steam escaping from the destroyed engine was said to have added to the casualties caused by the bombing. Railway traffic was reported at a standstill after the raid. tended a supper party Jan. 9 at which continuance of the Dies committee was discussed. The party was given by Gardner Jackson, legislative representative of Labor's Non-Partisan league, at his home. After appearing before the committee several days ago, Jackson told newsmen that continuance of the committee, then pending in the house, was a subject of conversation. Thomas charged later that there was "a plot" afoot to end the committee. He said he was convinced that "high government officials" had participated in it. Debate Turbulent. Instead of settling the Dies committee controversy over the "Peley" letters—called forgeries in secret testimony—a turbulent house debate left unanswered the ques- :ion of whether they should be Proposal for 'Economic Neutrality' Prime Topic of Conference. May Adopt Quotas Rumania in Perilous Position Following Belligerents' Demands. By EDWARD KENNEDY BELGRADE, Feb. 2 (/P)—The representatives of the four Balkan entente partners, their interests increasingly divergent, gathered today to find a way to keep out of Europe's war—perhaps with some sort of straddle. • A plan for "economic neutrality" under which Rumania, Greece, Turkey and Yugoslavia would sell supplies both to Germany and the Allies but only to the extent of normal, peacetime trade was first dis- possibility of a third party, said six Delaware delegates He had (Ciller Convicted By Antigo Jury ANTIGO, Feb. 2 (/P)—A jury of 10 men and two women, after deliberating 10 hours, last night convicted James Elaine Skidmore, 60- year-old farmer, of first degree murder in the shooting of Orville Nass, 20, of Mole Lake, last Nov. 5.

The executive council of the American Federation of Labor, cussion in the closed conference. The plan apeared to be Rumania's desperate substitute for her original request for ironclad military guarantees from her partners, to be invoked if necessary against either Germany or Soviet Russia. It seemed plain that Rumania could not win such promises. •' The plan to freeze Balkan exports to the belligerents at pre-war levels was supported by Rumania and Yugoslavia, according to reliable reports, as the best means of keeping the present battle of trade from turning into a battle of blood. Turkey, bound to the British- French Allies with mutual assistance treaties, and Greece, guaranteed against attack by the Allies, were understood to be less enthu- stricken from the congressional •ccord. Rep. Hook (D.-Mich.), placed the letters in the record last week. Then the committee declared that David Mayne of Washington had admitted forging them, and Hook tried yesterday to withdraw them. But Rep.iKeefe (R.-Wis.), blocked him on the ground that the letters reflected on Chairman Dies (D-.- SAYS AIR-RAID DEFENSE POOR WASHINGTON, Feb. 2 (/P)—The army was charged by one of its own officers today with "resisting" reinforcement of the nation's air-raid defenses, and with failure to develop effective weapons.

Anton Vogt on a perjury indictment for Feb. 22 (Washington's birthday.) $35,000 FOK FINNS. MILWAUKEE, Feb. 2 (#>)—Former Gov. Walter J. Kohler reported last night that nearly $35,000 has been contributed in Wisconsin to the Finnish relief fund. "Thousands of dollars more will be coming in to state headquarters in the next few weeks as I know from daily contact with campaigns in communities all over the state," Kohler said. PARIS, blockade ministry in a nique today supported Britain s contention that the Allies within their rights in examining United States and other neutral mails in their search for contraband destined for Germany. The communique said the Allied contraband controls had seized millions of dollars in currency, jewels and goods which it asserted Nazi agents and sympathizers had dispatched to German destinations. It said goods seized included a heavy traffic in foodstuffs labelled 'commercial samples."

"While aviation has progressed by yearly bounds, American anti-aircraft has devoted itself to refinement of the material of 10 years ago," Phillips, -an air defense specialist, wrote in the Coast Artillery Journal. "It no longer can fulfill its mission."

Tex.), and that Hook himself had not admitted their falsity. The letters purported to link Dies with William Dudley Pelley, chief of the Silver Shirt legion. The argument in the house which followed Hook's unsuccessful attempt brought from Rep. Voorhis (D.-Calif.), a committee member, the statement that Mayne once served as a committee agent. Voorhis, who described the letters as "rank forgeries," told the house of a long—and still active-search for Pelley. He said Mayne had been recommended to the committee by "a very prominent person in Washington" whose name he would not disclose. Mayne, Voorhis continued, presented himself to the committee last December and said he could turn up Pelley. He was dispatched to North Carolina, Pelley's home, with the committee paying his expenses, but Pelley never has appeared at committee hearings. In the blazing give-and-take de- rate in which some of the hottest fords were retracted, Rep. Mar- ontonio (Al-NY) dclared that Rhea Whitley, Dies committee counsel, lad resigned. Robert Stripling, committee clerk, said later that Whitley.'s commission as counsel had expired with the end of the year and that he had requested that it not be re- icwed. Whitley, a former G-Man, was said by Stripling to have pleaded that he needed to spend more siastic. Allies Make Pledge. Rumania also has received pledges from the Allies of all support in their power to resist any threat to her independence but these promises have not appreciably curbed her fears. Her position perhaps is the most perilous of all neutral states. Turkish and Greek trade with. Germany,.has greatly diminished since~the war-started, replaced by "| larger sales to the Allies. For these nations to return to pre-war quotas might mean severe economic disturbances. • , Thus anything agreed upon along the line of "economic neutrality" is likely to reprdsent a compromise between the two northern Balkan states—Rumania and Yugoslavia—and the two other entente members ; who are further removed by geography from a possible German push. As the Balkan diplomats and their staffs arrived, a semi-official Yugoslav statement was circulated, saying that "in today's conflict neutrals cannot preserve neutrality .by being merely politically neutral but must maintin rigid economic neutr- ty as well." CLARK GABLE, WIFE ABE LATE, NOT LOST HOLLYWOOD, Feb. 2 (/Pi—The Clark Gables, reported missing on a hunting trip, telephoned M. G. M. studio today from Ensenada, lower California, that "We positively are not lost." Gable said he and his wife merely had been delayed in arriving at their destination. and are to be assembled in a book later, the Polish government de scribes the land that Germany seized as one of hunger,'stark fear, wrecked churches and hospitals, and executions. It says deportations of the populace are conducted with methodical brutality. A similar paper was sissued last night by the Polish envoys to Italy and the Vatican. Tales of atrocities and suffering also are reported from that portion of Poland which fell to Soviet Russia, but the papers dealt mostly with the part held by Germany. The Poles declare the papers contain only information which has been carefully investigated and verified, including an estimate that the Germans have executed 18,000 Poles of all classes. At Bydgoszcz alone, the papers say, 6,000 persons had been shot down by the close of 1939, three months after Germany conquered l&e country. time on his private law practice The letters which caused the controversy were said by Hook in his original statement last week to have been addressed to Mayne and signed by Pelley. Despite committee members insistence that the letters were spurious, Hook refused repeatedly to call them false until signatures were checked by the justice department. War at Sea Elaine and John Together Again NEW YORK, Feb. 2 (/P)—John Barrymore, who never knows when a wifely reconciliation may pop up in his face, had Broadway guessing today on his latest reunion with Elaine Barrie. The star of "My Dear Children" kissed his wife No. 4 fervently last night between acts of the play, an off-stage action which made the final curtain 25 minutes late. A farewell kiss? "Like hell!" barked the great profile. A reconciliation kiss? "How the hell do 1 know'.'" he said. Then they were oft to a night club where John spent an hour or more signing autographs and yelling at the performers. They left there, and said they were going to do some more night spots, but their limousine wound over Manhattan for some time, and finally disappeared in the direction of Long Island, where Barrymore's temporary home is.
