Italy. — A sudden new peace move by Pope Pius appeared to have been launched Thursday with the handing of notes to the representatives of the five principal powers involved in Europe's crisis. An informed prelate said they contained a peace appeal. • Spar for Time LONDON, Eng. — </P>— Europe's great powers brought their armies to a new high pitch Wednesday while Prime Minister Chamberlain and Adolf Hitler continued their exchange of notes which diplomatic quarters said had failed thus far to come anywhere near a solution of the German- FolLsh crisis. Sources close to the British govrn- ment said the situation, was about the same as it was last Saturday when Hitler sent the frist of his historic proposals to Britain. Paris shared the feeling prevalent in London that the critical situation was "no better and no worse." "There is no war yet and every day of a peace is a gain," appeared, however, to be th consensus of high officials and common men in every land. Britian's second note reached Berlin Wednesday. It was described -authoritatively as designed to bring a further communication from Hitler, prolonging negotiations. Some quarters gained hope from reports that Hitler had indicated some willingness, in his communication deceived here last night, to negotiate directly with Poland. This same note, however, was reported to have said that Germany had not altered her demands for surrender of Danzig and the Polish cod- ridor. which Poland circles in London said nullified any possibilities the offer may have had. Polish circles also said they could not accept Hitler's reported suggestion that Poland send a minister plenipotentiary to Berlin for talks. The British government sent its secret reply to Hitler Wednesday after consultation with the French and Polish governments. Britain's tactics of keeping the exchange continuing as long as possible was intended, one diplomatic informant said to pro-long the so-called "war of nerves" for its possible effect upon Germany. , Catton Says Here'si What Million LooksLike (Continued From Page One) German Council BERLIN —IP}— Adolf Hitler decided late Wednesday night to concentrate in a few hands all the economic* financial and administrative pow- IHTOWH GENUINE WORLD-FAMOUS OTHER PRICES PROPORTIONATELY LOW! was due to the "professiinal touch" with which Gnndall was abe 2to infuse it. To watch him giving instructions to a set if picket-squad rs—the hrisp, citified labor leaderT er nnd the ovealled. . sunburned farmeds—was a libera education. Labor Passed Hat for Farmers "The C. I. O. didn't run this strike," Gandall insists. "It was the farmers' own afair. We didn't bring in any outside pickets, as some people charged. ' ' "But we were friendly. We took up collections for them. And we were prepared, if the formers asked us to, to throw mass picket lines around the big milk plants in New York City. "This -is the biggest thing that ever happened to the labor movement. It made labor see where its real interests lie." Admittedly, taking C. I. 0. help was a hard pill for some of the farmers to swallow. . But they did manage to get it down, Sam Schau, dairy farmer who was strike leader for Chenango county estimates that when the strike began all but a handful of the 1100 strikers in his county were very dubious about taking C. I. O. help. Before the striked ended however he says only a few score of them had any remaining doubts. Efforts to oganize anything like | a fame-labor party in the east and mid- I die west have failed uniformaly so far. Three or four years ago certain labor groups made a determined drive in that direction, but nothing of <my consequence was gained. And_ while this milke strike situation had no obvious political implications, it nevedtheless did bring farmers and urban upion men together in intimate co-operation—and, as sucii, may presage other developments later. It will be interesting, incidentally to see what the farmer labor picture is like today farthed west, where it has been a definite political factor. •SO THEY SAY — Perhaps the President can oblige by changing Saturday's to some other day. — Bill Arckerman, U.

Threp Good Reasons There are at least three reasons generally given for the difference in price. They help explain why the government chips in on the bill for the America. 1. The United States pays its labor more than mo;/t foreign countries pay their ship workers. (Later, the ship line will pay its sailors more than foreign competitors pay theirs. Most American .sailors make around j from getting (heir .share uf S70 a month while most French sail- ! world's ocean traffic America will have special five- proofing material in all walls.

Because the Koveimncnt may want to convert the America to navy uses in case of war. it is making sure the ship is rugged structurally and that If- plating is unusually thick. Thus, with the launching of the America, the government is making it clear that it no lunger will let higher casts prevent American lines llu> If you ever make your million, Earl A.

Viuiks Two-to-Five NEW YORK - Jack Doly, veteran Eroadway betting commissioner who refused to take any bets on the Yanks during the early months of the season, now quotes them at 2 to 5. er necessary for defending the Reich in case war should come. A short time before Great Britain's latest secret crisis note was handed in at the Reich's chancellery, Hitler appointed a ministerial council of .six men, headed by Field Mrshal Goering, his most trusted adviser. The others: Minister of the Intedior Wilhelm Fi-ick as head of the nation's administrative appertains. Col. Gen. WilheJm Keilel as chief of the high command of the armed forces. .Dr. Walther Funk as president of the Reichsbank and minister of economics. Rudolf Hess as deputy fuehrer of Ihi 1 Nazi party. Dr. Hans-Heinrich Lammers, as liaison between Hitler and the council. Albert Froster, Nazi district Under in Danzig and the newly created chief ol state there, arrived in Berlin last night for what it wa.s assumed was another important conference with Hitler, and possibly for instructions as to his future course toward Pu- land. F roster's unexpected arrival gave ii.se to reports that Germany proposed to take postive action in respect to the Free City soon. Hitler Crisis Is (Continued from Page One) Consider these things and you understand much of Hitler's foreign policy and his internal policy. He is slaking his hatreds. He is getting his revenge. He has revived Germany, Brncds In His Mountain Hum In some respects he resembles the mad King Ludwig II of Bavaria. Ludwig, like Hitler, had his brilliant moments. Ludwig, like Hitler, had his grandiose dreams. Ludwig almost bankrupted his country building castles in the Bavarian Alps. He was one of the first patrons of Richard Wagner. In one of his castles, the admiring Luctwig had all the walls painted with ' frescos illustrating scenes in the Wagner operas. In this castle Ludwig liked to shut himself away from people and brood and dream. Hitler has converted his once simple mountain villa at Berchtesgadcn into ?. palatial place. But that was not enough. Like Ludwig, he craved solitude. So he bus built for himself an eyrie right at the lop of a mountain. It is inaccessible save by an elevator which goes up a shaft hewn out of the living rock. Here, like Ludwig, Hitler can look out at the mountains and brood and dream. Like him, he is mad about Wagner. Thu.se operas about the savage and bloody Teutonic legends, the often gloomy Gothic music with it.s brassy fanfares, soothe Hitler. The suave melodies of Italian music are not for him. He does not eat meat, but he likes his music raw. And when he wants to rest, it is easier to listen to music than to read. Can Be Kept In Ignorance Hitler has never been much of a reader. His education is imperfect. A male coterie has it in its hands to keep Hitler in complete ignorance of what the outside world is thinking and saying about him and his j.olicies. The men closest to him every day are Propaganda Minister Ooebbe);,, Foreign Minister von Rib- bentrop and the sinister. blinking, smirking Himmler, bead of the dreaded secret police. These men are credited with being those who most ardntly desire an aggressive policy in European affairs, even at the cost of war. It they choose, they can give Hitler only piased information. They control the press and the radio. Hitler understands only German. So he is intellectually gagged and blindfolded. U. S.
