Germany's Reply to Peace Offer of Low Countries Von Ribbentrop Formally Answers, After British- French "No" FIVE VESSELS SUNK Three British, Two German Ships Are Destroyed at Sea UERLN, German —(/I 1 )— Foreign Minister vnn Ribbentrop Tuesday informed the Belgian and Netherlands envoys that Germany's reply to the joint mediation offer from the lowland nations would be a polite "No." The formal reply to the offer was to be sent Tuesday to (he Hague and Brussells, with instructions to German envoys that it be presented Wednesday, informed sources said. Von Ribbentrop was said to have stated Germany's reply was based on the answers already received by the two sovereigns from Britain and France, which he said rendered peace impossible at this time. By the Associated Press Warfare at sea, where the conflict between Germany and the Western Allies thus far has been fought most intensively, Tuesday inflicted now casulties on both Britain and Germany. A Briliyb destroyer, British freighter, British trawler and two German freighters were listed as new losses. The destroyer, unidentified by a British admiralty announcement, was said to have been sunk after hilling a German mine. One member of the crew was killed and six are missing. The trawler Crcsswoll, was sunk by a German submarine. The 8,003-ton freighter Matra went down after an explosion in the North sea. It was believed she hit a mine. German crewmen Scuttled the freighters Parana and Mecklenburg to avoid capture, the British admiralty claimed. German Ships Sunk LONDON, Eng. -(/!';- The Admiralty announced Monday that British warships had sunk two German steamers after their crews had been picked up. "The German steamers Mecklenburg 8,000 tons, and Parana, 6,000 tons, have been intercepted by British warships the statement said. "The crews abandoned their ships, leaving them in a sinking condition. After the crews had been picked up by our warships the two ships were finally sunk by gunfire to avoid any chance of their being a danger to navigation." Nazis Threaten Liners BERLIN, Germany —(/I')— All Berlin newspapers Tuesday morning published lists of British and French passenger ships and freighters which were said have been armed against submarines. The general comment was that a German submarine commander would be foolhardy to expose himself to destruction, leaving the implication that henceforth armed merchantmen would he subject to submarine! attack without warning. Listed among the vessels were the Queen Mary, Aquitania, Maureumia, Gcorgic, Empress of Russia, DC Grasse and other large liners. A total of 29 British and five French ships was mentioned. The impression here was that Germany was warning the world's travelers and shippers it would be hazardous to use these vessels. The Queen Mary is docked in New York harbor, where she has been inactive since the start of Ihc war. Authorities wore silent but prominent display of the lists led to the assumption major sea action is in prospect. Field Marshal Goering's National Zcilung of Essen said that armed merchantmen must, be regarded as pirate ships. "It is a mailer of indifference whether it js a 100-ton ship, with a crew of 10, or a vessel of 80,000 tons," Die National Zeitung said. 180,000 is the tonnage of the Queen Mary). "If the passengers, including women and child rcn, use these- English pirate ships, and something happens to them, they should complain to the travel agency of Churchill & Co.' ' Winston Churchill is first lord of the British Admiralty.

Merit System to Be Demanded by U.S. in Arkansas Raid on State Bureaus Is Charged to Federal Authorities BITTER FIGHT SEEN Controversy Centers in Welfare and Education Departments LITTLE ROCK, Ark —(/I 1 )— Governor Bailey announced Tuesday he would meet here with Ed McDonald, regional director for the Social Security Board, and thcr regional attaches November 23 to discuss the board's request that stale agencies disbursing federal funds be placed under a "merit personnel system." The governor indicated exchanges between the .state and th board on th proposal would reach a climax at that meeting. Controversy Arises WASHINGTON—W)—Paul V. McNutt, federal security administrator, cautioned state administrations of social security programs Monday against political activity of said state agencies. He sent to state officials information on new minimum standards for personnel merit systems adopted by the Social Security Board, and said "it is the responsibility of the state governments to administer their unemployment and welfare programs and it is the responsibility of the federal government to hold the states merely to minimum standards set up by congress and the proper expenditure of federal funds." He emphasized that state merit system regulations "must bar employes from participating in political activities except to express their views and cast their ballots as citizens. They also must prohibit disqualification of persons from taking examinations or holding office because of political or religious opinions." McNutt said the merit plan standards issued to the states followed generally the federal and state civil service system. "fn the absence of a state civil service system with substantially equivalent standards," he said, "there must be established merit systems administered by impartial bodies to be known as 'merit system councils,' Council members arc to be appointed by the administrative agencies or by the governor or recommendation of the administrative agencies." State agencies will be required to establish and maintain classification and compensation plans for all positions and examinations must be administered by a merit system supervisor on an open competitive basis, McNutt said. Present state merit systems will continue in operation until superseded by new systems. The board asked each state agency to report by January 1 on existing systems or submit details of action on new standards designed lo meet fotlcral requirements. Charge "U. S. Raid" LITTLE ROCK — Federal government burcjiucrats arc ready to include the Slate Education Department in their control of jobs and were charged Monday with preparing lo place an "approved professor, who will serve as n front," in charge of a stale Merit System Council.
