IRON, STEEL Oil, Copper, Trucks and Tractors Going Abroad in Illicit Traffic WASHINGTON—(/T>)—Renewed government suasion to halt American trade with Italy and Ethiopia was applied Friday by Secretary Hull in another warning to exporters against sale of combat commodities to those countries;. Asserting there had ben a "considerable increase" in American exports of oil, copper, trucks', tractors, scrap iron and steel, Hull flatly labeled such goods as "war materials," and added: "This class of trade is directly contrary to the policy of this government as announced in official statements of thc president and the secrtary of state, as it is also contrary to the general spirit of the recent neutrality net." The statement, issued only a few days before the League of Nations' economic and financial sanctions program is scheduled to become effective Italy, constituted^ }be -third WASHINGTON.—Much of the New Deal's idealism, sincere enough in its time, Is wearing off in the face of practical political realities. a Anyone here can feel the federal machine bracing itself for the election campaign. Old-line civil service em- ployes aren't so concerned, but trios'? in the emergency agencies—many ol whom never cared n . whoop about politics,- before—arc beginning to take active interest as a result of fear for their jobs, for an administration thny admire, or both. Federal employes will be asked, quietly enough, to dig down and contribute to campaign , funjfc. , With most wealthy men opposed to the New Deal, the Democratic party wil have relatively few "fat cats" thi year. Someone must pay the bills. It's a right to talk about the work-relief bil lions as a .'campaign fund," but yo can't divert any of that money t operation of campaign ' machiner which will take several millions—an there's a heavy party deficit righ now. How much coercion will be usec to make jobholders kick in remain to be seen. Politicians Gel Busy Many officials with political back ground arc spending most or mucl of their time and thought on politics making occasional trips back IIOIIIL and keeping in constant touch through correspondence. An Increasing number of minor em- ployes plan la join the Young Democrats and vote for the first time in their lives. The high command, meanwhile, wil devote itself to "practical" smooth- ings of factional party rows in various states which threaten the national ticket.

Britain Gratified In London, Hull's statement was received with gratification in official quarters. It was said there that whil" the action of the United Stales had been awaited with interest, it was considered too early to say whether further saViction steps would bo taken against Italy by the League. Hull gave no specific figures nor did he say whether materials were being sent to one or both of the belligerents.

There arc some states, nowcver, where the administration 'ias favored the "cleanest" political element with good political results. Brain Truslcrs No Help But thc big thing you notice here is the number of boys and girls who once considered themselves above and aloof from party politics and who are now willing to forget they were going to be '.pure government servants and jump into politics up to the neck. That goes for quite a few of thc brain-trusters. However, insofar as any public activities go, they are more of a liability than an asset in any campaign. Many voters suspect them and fey follow them. Several brain-trustcrs have stirred up "bad" political situations by their refusals to play politics and their suspicions of politicians. There isn't much they can dc now except keep quiet while the political operators try to repair thc damage. A couple of brain-trustcrs in administrative jobs recently have tried to play pro-Roosevelt politics in certain states and only succeeded in making matters worse. Hopkins Takes Hand Brain-trusting for the next year will be largely confined to writing speeches, thinking up ingenious answers for high officials to hurl back at thc enemy and—by the legal section cf the Brain Trust—plotting defense of New Deal laws in thc courts.

They also witnessed a duel between '-wo high school quarterbacks, one an all-stale celebrity, Paul Longinotti of the Trojans, and Salty Saltonstall of Ihe Wildcats, with honors going to the ircrc experienced Trojan ace. Immediately after El Dorado got the ball, Saltonstall proceeded to show why he should be considered for all- state selection. He made several nice gains, but before the first quarter was over Perry ran in a squad of other regulars, including Longinotti. The little Italian hadn't been in the game five minutes when he received | Saltonstall's kick on thc Trojan's 12' yard line. He brought the crowd to great exhibition of running. Longinotti Wildcat tackier after another and then, aided by Donald Hawkins, guard, who effectively removed the final threat at the 25-yard line, outran all others and scored the Trojan's first touchdown. He covered 88 yards in that spectacular run. The try for conversion failed. Wall Street Market Plunges Through Top of "Depression Range" NEW YORK-(Copyright Associated Press)—Many Wall Street market and business experts believe this week may prove, In important respects, to have been the pivotal seven days of the recovery period so far. Stocks thrust vigorously and definitely through the upper berrier of the trading range in which the equity market has oscillated for more than two years. A fair scattering of individual issues, especially in the industrial classification, arc selling at the best levels since 1929. Former Hope Grid Player Is Injured Ronald (Red) Smith Critically Hurt in Conway Football Game LITTLE ROCK-Ronald (Red) Smith, captain and tackle of the Arkansas college football team of Batesville and a former Hope High School star, was. h a serious, condition at St. Vincent's infirmary Friday night as the result ' ' of a .' ll hemorrhage; • .. ,His case;,,"wns . declared "most unusual," by physicians ot-thc infirmary. The Arkansas college team was de- eated by Hendrix college, 51 to 0, at Conway Friday. At the end of the lalf, Smith collapsed., He was removed to the Faulkner county hospital and later transferred to Little Rock. Doctors said Smith hod not been inured during the game, or at least he did not complain to any of his team- nates. X-ray examinations made at he infirmary also failed to show any njury. The physicians believed" that Smith collapsed under the strain of the ;ame. Attendants .said the entire side was paralyzed. Smith was a member of the Bobcat botball team in 1928 and 1929. He was i substitute tackle and center. He is he son of Mr. and Mrs. H. B. Smith, who recently moved from Hope Route ''our to Limo, Ohio. Jews Deprived of Vote in Germany Citizenship Destroyed and Marrige Right Strictly Limited BERLIN, Germany—f/p)—Jews were tripped of all political rights by the Nazi government Friday and forbid- len to marry Gentiles. Official de- rees put into effect the sweeping litizenship und racial laws approved by the Reichstag at its Nurnberg reeling in September, during the *Jazi party convention. Thus Germany's Jews are deprived [ the right to vote, to hold public of- ice or even to be employed by the ovcrnment. Only a special dispen- ation from Adolf Hitler can exempt ews and part Jews from these re- trictions. The decree also forbids the mployment of female Aryan servants nder the age of 35 in Jewish house- olds. "The Jew cannot be a Reich's citi- en, cannot vote or occupy public of- ice," said thc decree which was pub- ished in the official gazette. "Jewish unctionaries of Ihe government will e pensioned December 31, 1935." A separate decree, covering the }lood and honor" laws, forbade mar- ages between Jews and "quarter ews" or between "quarter Jews," Better Highway Patrol Is Urged ! by Motor Group "Safety Weeks" Ridiculed —What Is Needed Is ] Law Enforcement • i STATES ARE ACTING 4 Establish Patrols, and 5 More Adopt Driver's License Laws CHICAGO-(/P)-Stcrn enforcement, of traffic laws was demanded Friday' by President Thomas P. Henry of the American Automobile • association to cut the nation's motor vehicle death toll in half. He told delegates representing 800 clubs at the annual convention of the organization: "We must stop talking and thinking in terms of .safety weeks,' 'slogans;' and 'pledges' and other claptrap phrases. We mast have a continuing program of intelligent and resolute action. We arc woefully lacking in adequate enforcement machinery, There is no law without a sheriff, "I firmly believe that if we" set out in earnest on selective enforcement | and rule off the road thos ewho refuse i to accept their responsibility at the ! wheel, we shall within one year" cut our fatality toll in half." The legislative committee' advocated a substantial increase in highway patrol personnel. The report; pointed out the majority of motor mishdps occurred on the open road, patrolled by less than 5,000 men—one. for 'eVeVy 5,000 cars and for every 70 miles ; of highways. -.''.. The committee reported <r "a greater J concentration than ever -before" by ' state legislatures on safety legislation. -Among achievement.?j>f the National U.D.C Convention to Meet Tuesday at Hot Springs these,were.cited: < /,.-;. •: . Four more states .established'riign- way • patrols, 16 adopted safety ''glass bills,- seven passed law requiring regular inspection of motor vehicle equipment, drivers license laws were written into the statute books by five additional states and many others took steps to provide greater safety to children in school buses. The committee envisioned a trend toward assessing heavier- penalties for drunken driving. ' 6 Killed in Auto Crashes in 2 States 2 CCC Camp Members!
