LOUIS— (A*)— The Federal Reserve Bank Friday reported a sweeping upward surge in industry and commerce in the Eighth district as a result of the outbreak of war in Europe." The bank's monthly review, covering most of August and purl of September, said "An immediate development was the 'jriost active buying movement in commodities experienced in recent years, accompanied by sharp nrlvcRL'CN b: prices of both durable and nondurable goods." Even without a war stimulant, an investigation disclosed a continuance of the steady improvement in business which has been noted since last spring. Production of manufactured goods increased and both wholesale and retail distribution "expanded in more than the seasonal amount." Ingot production at steel plants advanced to (i,'i.5 per cent of capacity, a new high for l!)!i!l and the best rale since September, 1!)')7. Lead and zinc production reached the years highest point in August and has further increased in Septe'inbcr. The employment situation showed improvement in virutally all lines. ReUiil trade as shown by sales of leading department .stores was 21.7 per cent grealer than July; 12.1 per cent belter than August, 191)8 and for the first eight months of this year exceeded a corresponding period of l!IH8 by 6.2 per cent.

Joint Committee of Congress Urged to Observe War Charting Nation's Course Most Difficult, Says Charles Beard EMBARGO NO ISSUE Repeal of One Law Won't Matter Much, Historian Declares K.v CHARLES A. BEAKI) Famous Historian (Written for NEA Service) NEW YORK — It is vitally important that the American government draw the best talents (nto the difficult and hazadarous business of charting the nation's course in one of the greatest crisis that has ever confronted mankind. If Congress acts one way or the other on the Neutrality Law of 1937 and adjourns, its members will be .scattered soon throughout the country and thus deprived of immediate contacts with proposals and actions by the President and State Department. If a crisis comes, Congress cannol asscmple on its own motion. It must await the President's pleasure. If he docs not call another special session, it cannot meet again until next January. It is thi.s writer's belief that Congress should remain in actual or constructive session during the continuance of the war abroad, or until the new Congress is installed, if the war should last so long. Thus Congress would be in a position to discharge its cpn.stilulioria.1 duties and its obligations to the people in connection with foreign affairs. How to Keep Congress Informed Congress is, however, a large and unwieldy body and needs .special agents and committees to prepare reports and measures for its consideration. My .second suggestion, therefore, is that Congress create a joint committee on foreign affairs to maintain contacts with the President and the Stale Department, to study proposals and decisions made by them, and to keep the leaders and members of Congress constantly informed as to the steps being taken by the Executive. This committee might well be chosen from members of the foreign relations committee of the Senate and the foreign affairs committee of the House, with majority and minority representation. Or a special joint committee could be established. A mere commitle is not enough. The issues of foreign affairs now arising arc highly technical and complicated. Even little decisions may he vital, if they lead to crucial decisions. So I propose Ihat this joint committee of Congress on foreign affairs be equipped with its own staff of experts in the laws and practices of international relations. Thus the experts of the Slate Department could he checked by experts equally competent, and where differences of opinion arise Congress could have the benefit of knowing the alternative policies and actions open for iu choice. Who and How Is Vital No informed man or women believes thai a repeal of Ihc Act or a return to the swirling fog of inlcr- (Continued on Pace Three) Picture Story of Battle and Rescue at Sea Chamberlain Is to Give Nazis, Soviet Reply on Monday Britain and France to Reject Peace Overtures Regardless NAZI -SOVfET PACT *.T I* 3 --.-4 *w •* 2 • * j* * ^ j f "f Survivors of British freighter Kafirislan, landed at New York aboard American Farmer tell *m- sational story of battle between English bombing plane and sub which torpedoed Kafiristan off Irish coast.

GAVNOR MADUOX NEA Service Staff Writer Food profiteering! Will it become a menace'.' Not if Ihc Department of justice can prevent it. The office of the United States At- ® lorney General, realizing that Ihc recent sudden rise in the price of necessities in the face of huge surpluses is a symptom of what may happen if we are not prepared in advance, i.s ready to. do battle. However, for the present, they believe that the Anti-Trust laws we have arc enough. If the profiterring in food and other essential commodities cannot be restrained quickly with the help of the present laws, then the Department of Juslicc may ask the new Congress for even stronger laws, acording to reliable sources in the Department of Justice. There arc other means nf controlling restrainl of trade and profiteering beside the anti-trust laws. The Department of Justice receives telegrams and letters from all over the country appealing lo them for immediate investigation' of b-uuirmal price increases. These complaints come from State attorneys general, from farmers unions and co-operatives, from small Car Stolen Here Thursday Night Auto Was Owned by James McLarty—Taken at Third and J-'ine A Ford coach owned by James McLarty was stolen from its parking place at Third and Pine streets Thursday night. manufacturers, housewives associal- Arkansas and Texas police have ions and ^women's clubs.

Berlin and Moscow Threaten Joint Action If Peace Is Rejected LONDON, Eng.—(/P)-Grcat Britain and France consulted Friday on the German-Soviet Russian peace overtures, and the British cabinet examined it. • ' . Informed sources said Britain's determination to continue the war against Germany was in no way altered by the new declaration. These sources represented the government as viewing the move as a final supreme effort to "frighten" Britain and B'rance into a quick peace. It was announced that Prime Minister Chamberlain would 'make Britain's official reply Monday hi the House of Commons. "Peace". Demand BERLIN, Germany—(/P)—The division of Poland between Germany and Soviet Russia completed, the two powers Friday confronted Britain and France with peace overtures backed by the threat that they would "consult each other as to necessary measures" unless the Western powers agreed to end hostilities. / Adolf Hitler's axis partner, Premier Mussolini, appeared chosen for the rote of "peacemaker," in the ~ ; opmion,:> of informed quarters. These sources,, pointed out that Italy ranks first among the "friendly powers" mentioned in the German-Russian accord. The accord, which partitions Poland for the fourth time, dividing the conquered land almost equally between the two powers, and then pledged them to seek together peace on their own terms, provides for closer economic ties. It was signed in Moscow Thursday night, (Russia's return to a powerful role in determining the future of Europe was signalized further by the conclusion of a 10-year mutual assistance pact with Estonia, making the little Baltic neighbor a virtual protectorate.) complaints should be looked into hv the Department of Justice investigators But the increasing number of complaints being received daily puts a great strain on the Department staff. Thurman Arnold, Assistant United Elates Attorney General and the Department's field marshal in the war against profiteering, said recently, "We must seek to organize consumers so thai reliable complaints may reach us in an orderly way. The Consumers' Counsel now attached to Ihc DcpMrlmrnl of Agriculture may he miidn an important nrgani/.alinn rail.T and clearing house for eon- '•tiinrr reporting in widely scattered ki- rnlit iex."
