He did not revoal, however, whether Ills current efforts for peace are as direct as was his personal liilervenlion in ci-Ises before the, outbreak of the European war. But it was Indicated he was leaving no stones unturned lo put the full weight of this country behind efforts (o keep Ihe war within Us present bounds. When pressed, for details of diplomatic activities Mr. Roosevelt said lhat for the present he musl stand on the statement thai luls country simply is doing everything it can to prevent the spread of war. Thai statement said the president must answer questions bearing on his conference yesterday with the Italian ambassador and Ihc previous day's conference in tto.ne between Premier Mussolini and American Ambassador William Phillips. Mr. Roosevell sidestepped inquiries as lo whether this country has Informed Italy that if the war spread.; lo Die Mediterranean (he U.

Italian ambassador, Don Ascaulio Colonna, also refused to discuss the details of the meeting.

U early returns on the Courier News' attempt lo secure a popular opinion poll on daylight saving time are any indication such a plan (s just what the people have been waiting for. Possibly, too, those who would like lo sec Ihc clock hands moved up tin hour are more eager lo accomplish their goal than those who simply prefer the status quo. But at any rate (he very few who have voted against daylight saving time in the Courier's poll so far are well In Ihe minorily. Comment is solicited n.. well as voles. Frankly the method of accomplishing HID change, even If it Is (he popular wish, remains somewhat obscure. But more than likely Ihc city council and the chamber of commerce can determine the course. So if you're for daylight saving time, let's have your'vote. And If you prefer to remain "as is", let's have your vote, too, I1AVT1, Mo., Mny 3. _ County officers, usstslt'd by highway pi<- (rolinen of fioulhcusl Missouri mill Norlhonsl Arkansas, continued;' today lo search for a 'highway bandit' who (hey claim has successfully rxi'culcd between as and 3d holdups. moslly of poTMias In parked automobiles, i u ihi s nm s(nce August of last year.

There had been not the slightest suggestion that he would, but It was reported that the admiralty, of which he is head, nail been eager for a frontal attack' on Trondhelm from Iki- sea but that the war cabinet rejected the proposal as over-costly. There were plain rumblings of a storm of criticism which might break at any time. . ; Shortly nfter Chamberlain's speech yesterday about 15 government, supporters in parliament, all critical of the government for some lime, met privately and were understood alter having criticized the government unsparingly, to have said that the resignation of the cabinet had now become an Immediate isle.
