In two ways, as Mr. Gannett sees it. First, by the fact that—in his belief —the great tendency of the New Deal program has been to concentrate increasing power in the hands of the executive, upsetting the old system of hecks and balances and—to an extent, at least—paving the way for a Even more important, he feels, is the fact that our continued depression is increasing the economic pressure on the mass of the people. "In Europe," he remarks, "due to intolcrabcl economic conditions, the people .sold their birthright for a mess pottage and their liberties for a loaf of bread. If we don't change economic conditions here, the same forces arc apt to saddle us with more and more dictatorial powers." Vet, the economic problem, Mr. Gannett believes, acnnol be solved by any government which opperatcs — as he believes the New Deal docs on a so-called scarcity program.

Nobuyuki Abe, 64, n moderate called from three years' retirement, began TUK- day constructing a new government, to carry out tb isolationist policy to which Japan turned after Germany cocluded he non-aggression pact with Soviet Russia. Emperor Hirohito Monday night called on Ahe (pronounced Ah-Bch, without accent) to form a cabinet lo replace that of Baron •. Hiranuma, who resigned because of the empire's about face from - the -old foreign policy— symboli/d by the Japanesc-German- 1 ta lin ant i -Comm intern he and his ministers championed. With Japan's attention centering on Soviet Russia for any possible major move against Manchoukuo or North China, Abe faces a difficult, task in keeping clear of international complications which might threaten the Japanese campaign in China. A former inspector-general of military education and once acting war minister, he also faced the task of maintaining a middle domestic course between extreme nationalists and liberals. The latler favor friendship with Hit- United States and Great Britain, a policy toward which Abe was said to be inclined. Observers believed immediate steps toward conciliation with the United States would be taken. Growing concern has been manifest in military circles over Washington's abrogation of its trade treaty with Japan—a move which carried an implied threat of an arms embargo.
