i. •',«.'".,•, 4 FOUR Godless Dictators Denounced by Pius Pope Blames Present European War on the "Denial ofGod" •CASTEL GANDOLFO, Bope Pius, in the first encyclical of his rcSgn, bterted "denial of God" for leading the world to war, and pleaded for peace. The pope appealed for peace treaties at the end of this war which would avoid the "sacrifices and sufferings" •which failed to bring lasting peace in the past , The pontiff criticized dictatorshisp Which assume "absolute autonomy, which belongs exclusively to the Supreme Maker." In a letter of more than 11,000 words to all Catholic Bishops, the pope criticized a form of government which puts itself in the place of the Almighty and elevates the state or group into the last end of life, the supreme criterion of moral and juridical order, and which therefore forbids every appeal to the principles of neutral reason and Christian conscience." , Transport Put Up (Continued from Page One) HOPE STAR, HOPE, ARKANSAS Hurricane's Handiwork it gave the transport the coup de grace with a torpedo. Qm'all arms drawn ready to use, the sub crew lined the U-152's deck chains as she cruised amid the,wreckage and waters strewn thick with torn bodies. The U-boat commander refused first aid to the wounded. Discovering that, men of German names were among them he administered a stern lecture for their conduct towards the Fatherland. Then, taking two officers prisoner on the submarine, he abruptly departed. The sub later returned safely to Germany, where the sailors revolted. The sea was rough.

All American coastal defenses on the surface, by aircraft and submarines, ivere vain, as the half dozen "untersce- bootes" sent 165,000 tons of shipping on this side of the Atlantic to the bottom. The U-boat sank an even 100 ships here—one-third of the total unarmed fishermen—with a loss of lives above 300. One of the six submarines, the U-155, was the former Deutschland, reconverted into a war submarine. Her peace-time skipper, shy, modest, Captain Paul Koenig, replaced by ter- roristic Korvetton-kapitan Erik Ecklc- mann, U-155 had a total score of seven sinkings, all torpccloings without warning, the largest the Dacia on which four of her crew were killed.

Rifles shipped to belligerent nations would presumably bear tags reading: "To be used only when shot at." Hitler wants President Roosevelt to address Chamberlain about ending the war.

Alternate claims and denials of war gains from both Germany and the allies are keeping the world hoplessly confused. An official scorckceper to record hits and errors might be helpful.

Fifflay, OctoEef 27, 1039 THE THEATER Making its local debut at the Saenger Theatre Sunday is "The Roaring Twenties, 1 ,' co-strring James Cagney Prlscilla Lane. The film which deals with the turbulent and eventful d-e cndc following the World War, is based on an original story by Mark Hcllingcr, ace columnist. "The Roaring Twenties" is the autobiography of a nation on n jng. The day f the flapper and the speakeasy, of mob rule, of fantastic prosperity — in short, the most glittering, gaudy arid fantastic ngc in history, is recreated on the screen as the background for a vivid and compelling story of a man who rises to the heights of power only to be smashed into the oblivion when the era comes to an end. In France, us the war ends, three soldiers (played by Cagncy, Jeffrey Lynn and Humphrey BognrO make joyful plans Mr their return to America. One plans! to go back to his job iis garage mechanic, (mother is going to start his Uiw the third, scoffing at talk of Prohibition, intends to go back to saloon-keeping. Cagney is also looking forward to mooting (he girl who has been writing him cheery letters throughout the war. But in the world to which they return their plans arc no longer feasible. Cagney, whose job has long since been filled, has to drive a cab, and this soon puts him on to the boot-legging racket. Meanwhile he has met his unknown sweetheart. lie has also made contact with his wartime buddies and Bogart, who has been working with a rival bootlegging gang, joins up with him. He retains Lynn to handle the somewhat shady legal end of his transactions. Riding on the crest of the wave, they all rise to the top with him but in the crash, Cagney goes under first. Brillinntiy directed by Raoul Walsh, who was responsible for that all-time hit, "What Price Glory' 1 ", "The Roaring Twenties" was adapted for the screen by Richard Macauhry and Jerry Walcl from the Hellingcr story.
