The I only way to keep it at all straight is to I1 ('number two princiuples: j 1. The league principle is to find I the aggressor in any war, and to ptin- j i.sh thai aggressor by sanclions, Ihnt is, by refusing to sell certain war materials to him. 2. Tlie American principle, in the present law, provides no attempt to determine which party to a war i.s to blame. It simply provides that the United States will trade in certain articles with neither. The aim here is not to punish either side, but simply to withdraw from dangerous waters. Not Ciuldrd By League Thus in Ihe present American plan, il is entirely a matter of chance whether American action supplements league action in punishing an aggressor. In the ease of Italy, because cutting off war materials from Ethiopia means nothing, the American course in cutting them off from Italy did correspond regularly with the league action. But there is no reason to think it might in another case. Suppose Italy pounced tomorrow on the British fleet, and war was on The American law leaves no discretion. We would have to cut off all trade with both Britain and Italy in war materials immediately, quite regardless of what our sympathies or beliefs might be. If neutrality legislation along the present line i.s extended to include leaed right of action accrued. Three \ many kinds of near-war material, of them, regarded us typical and rep- j such as oil, copper, trucks, tractors, rescntatlvc of the whole number, ] scrap iron, and the like, participation were primarily selected for hearing I of Britain in a war would take a big on demurrers which the govcrsment slice out of .foreign trade. Plaintiffs in Eudora Spillway Case "Deliverate- ly Delaying" WASHINGTON - </}') - Attorney General Homer Cummings, citing Arkansas landowners—damage claims as examples, recommended Saturday to congress legislation to prohibit payment of interest where trial of cases is delayed by plaintiffs.

Thi.s new industrial union in the radio and electric refrigerator industry has built up some lifi.OOO members under tin- aggressive leadership of J James 13. Carey, a young man who i jumped into a field in which Ihe old! line electrical craft unions had largely tailed. Now Carey, xvitli a large and going organi/ation, demands an international charter as nn industrial union. The liadio and Allied Trade is now merely a federal union under direct A.

Oil Embargo Would Permit League of Nations to Strike Also By the Associated Press ; President Hoosevell's message lo' the American congress Friday nighti brought expressions in some French j quarters Saturday that it might in-, crease European war preparations instead of hindering them. Those sources saw the possibility that the suggestion for an oil embargo j against Italy might be strongly re- j vived, because of Roosevelt's plan to I keep American exports of essential ! war materials to Italy and Ethiopia at j peace-time levels. i In London the belief was generally , held among observers that if the • United States barred the exportation of oil to belligerents the League of Nation might do likewise. Reliable sources in Home .said the elasticity of Roosevelt's neutrality plans was their saving grace. Roosevelt Speaks WASHINGTON.—(/I'')—In his annual message Friday night, President Roosevelt called on congress to protect the nation against foreign autocrats bent upon war and against autocrats at home who seek to "gang up on the people's liberties." He attacked critics of the New Deal in language that was almost unprecedented for an annual message. Although he mentioned no names, his denunciation of "determined * groups" and entrenched "greed" seeking to regain control of the government was considered directed at the American Liberty League. The Democratic members of congress, filled with thoughts of the hit- ler political campaign ahead, repeatedly interrupted the address with applause. As the president entered the brilliantly illuminated house chamber where the house and senate were in joint session, th ('applause punctuated with yelk and stamping, lasted for two minutes-. A.S ho stood waiting for it lo cease, the president look off his wrist watch and placed it on the raised manuscript pedestal in front of him. He spoke from the reading clerk's desk below the dais of Speaker Byrns. Grouped in front of him were members of his cabinet, and behind them members, of Ihe .senate. House members filled the rest of the chamber. In Ihe galleries, crowded to over- j flowing, sat only those fortunate) enough In obtain tickets for adtnis-1 sion.

Lutheran ministers in Iowa, Wisconsin farmers, country store proprietors in Nebraska, Oklahoma housewives occupants of an Iowa poorhouse, Texas barbers, at least 70,000 of them in nil, paid 51,350,000 of their hard-earned money in the hope of petting it back a thousand-fold from "Tlie Drake Estate." Forty-one men and women are on trial, charged with using the mails in collection of the money. Most of them have shown in court a pathetic faith that Oscar Harlzell, ringleader in the plan to collect "Tlie Drake Estate." i.s honest .though he i.s already serving a 10-year' term in Ft. Leavenworth for fraud in the Drake case. Most of them are unshaken in theii fuith that there i.s a Drake estate thought the government says there isn't. And mast of them arc only waiting until, .surely within a few months, a man will come along and shower them with gold for the dollars they have put in. Estate Campaign Starts Sir Francis Drake died in 159B. more than :)00 years ago. Ho was a British naval officer, privateersman, and explorer. First to carry the British flag around the world in his ship, Tlie Golden Hind, Drake plundered Spanish colonies and ships and returned to England with vast treasure in gold and silver. He was knighted by Queen Elizabeth and died in the West Indies years later. He had Ix-cti married twice. Years ago, Oscar Hartzell ,an lowap in England, claimed to have discovered a descendant of a son of Drake, who was presumed to bo heir lo vast estates left by Drake. Hartzell claimed thai rights lo the estate had been assigned to him by this heir. About 1921 he began writing letters back to his native Iowa, asking people lo give him money to help him collect, promising to reimburse Ihe donors a thousand-fold when the estate was liquidated, II was said to consist of vast tracts in Drake's native Devonshire, including all the city of Plymouth, a.s well ;LS 80 acres in the vrr.v heart of London. There was also wild talk of a secret bv Riddle Confirms Star's Story of 6th of December Teissler, in Charge of Kraft Factories, Here Within Few Days TO PICK LOCATION A vision of u flood of gold, brought originally to Elizabethan England by Sir Francis Drake (lower center) in his ship, The Golden Hind (top right), has brought -11 defendants Into a Chicago federal court charged with lining the mails to defraud.

He started the movement, -and collected $800,000 from "investors." Right, below, is Detective Inspector Arthur Bishop of Scotland Yard, brought to Chicago to testify.

The : announcement confirmed a story -which The Star had obtained on reliable authority and made public December 6. Saturday the newspaper received the following letter from A. J. Riddle, general manager southwestern division of Krafl-Phcnix corporation, written from Denison, Texas: "Acknowledging your letter of December 31 to Mr. J. M. Roddy. We are planning on establishing a factory in Hope in the very near future. There has been some delay in getting on the ground; however, Mr. Teissler, in charge of our .factories, will be there within a few days and we hope to proceed rapidly . in getting organized to take milk. "You may publish this statement if you wish. We are endeavoring to find i a.building that we can put in shapa to handle our business. I understand there are several available but we have not selected one—that is something Mr. Teissler. Will handle when he gets over there. "Assuring : 'you that we appreciate your interest and co-operation, we remain yours, '.'..'.. A. J.. v RIDDLE, General , Manager t Cheese Corporation." January 2,'1936 Denison, Texas." Establishing of the new Kraft factory will mean resumption of the monthly milk checks for Hempslead county farmers which this area enjoyed during 1929 and 1930. The Kraft company is returning to Hope with a direct-operated cheese factory, on a permanent basis, according to information obtained by The Star from reliable sources December G. Tlie milk-survey of the trade area, completed by Kraft a month ago, was' entirely favorable, plus the added necessity of the farmers finding other uses for land barred from, unlimited cotton production. The whole-milk market created by the ;cheeAe factory will furnish an additional cash crop, allowing feedstuffs to be turned into milk for a monthly pay check. _ _ TamWl C °>° tCS At hible mile, ; jute English aiiport.s. it 1.1 pos to hire an airtaxi at (i cents : THKNTON.
