And I say to you that the price of pence i.s cheaper than the price of war," Dr. James W. Workman told Hope Rotary club Friday noon at Hotel Barlow. Dr. Workman, conducting a revival meeting at First Methodist church, praised Neville Chamberlain, the British premier, as the guiding hand that effected a compromise and turned aside a general European conflict. The Fayctlcville speaker opened his club address by report ing on the recent Protestant union meeting known as the Oxford Conference, polling out that there are today so may potent threats against Christianity that the many scattered denominations don't feel srong enough to separately confront the commo enemy. Guests of the club Friday, besides Dr. Workman, were: E. 11. Martin, of Jacksonville, Miss., director of song at the Workman revival; Sam Logan, Prcscott; Harrsion Slieppard, Hot Springs; and Dr. A.

Processing Tax Is Wallace's Plan Senator S m i t h Demands Present Farm Relief Be ; Simplified WASHINGTON-</P)-Eight senators pnd two congressmen unanimously endorsed a demand for increased government loans on cotton and wheat Friday, and sought an audience with President Roosevelt. Chairman Smith, democrat of South Carolina and one of the senate agriculture committee, asked the White Hou.se for an appointment with the president to outline what he and his associates described as a "desperate" farm situation. Previously ihe group adopted a res- olulion calling for an increase to the maximum legal limits of 11.85 cents per pound in loans oil cotton and 84 cents per bushel on wheat loans. Tlic Department of Agriculture is now lending 8.3 cents per pound on cotton, and an average of 59M> cents per bushel on wheat, Processing Tax HUTCHINSON, Kan.-(/P)-Sccrctary Wallace urged Thursday enactment of processing taxes lo provide funds for subsidies to farmers. Addressing a meeting of farmers in the heart of the winter wheat belt, the New Deal's agricultural chief advanced such taxes as an alternative to price-fixing proposals being advocated by some congressmen and others. His address was broadcast. Processing taxes, he said, would pro vide a regular source of funds for pay mcnt of the subsidies authorized by the present law to give farmers Ihcir "fair share" of the national income. Four Alternatives Then, in a general discussion of the farm price queslion, he said there were four alternatives: 1. Continuance of the present program strengthened by processing taxes. 2. Government fiving of prices for farm products. 3. Establishment of a government mon oply of agriculture providing for stricter control of production for marketing, 4. Abandonment of all programs in favor of "cut-throat competition and return to conditions that brought 1932." Asks Simpler Program WASHINGTON. - M>j _ Chairman Smith (Dem., S. C.) of the Senate Agriculture Committee, asked Thursday for a "more workable and simlcr" program for cotton. He said he would propose a subsidy for cotton at a meeting here Friday of senators from cotton producing states. He also called for an increase m the rate of government loans on cotton, fixed by Secretary Wallace at 8.3 cents a pound under the presen f»nn law. Smith said the rate should be increased to more than 11 cents.

Here again, a German triumph in. Czechoslovakia ,will bring headaches to' diplomats, wlio since .the World war have tried to keep Rumania in line as a Little Entente power allied with France and England. This has been comparatively easy, for" Rumania is one of the "have" powers. By casting her lot with the Allies during the World war she was enabled to more than double her territory and population. From the old AustrolHungarian empire she got Transylvania and the Banal region; from Russia, Bessarabia. More "Minority Problems" But with these acquisitions came increased "racial minority" problems of the same sort that plague every small country of central and southeastern Europe. Of her. 19,000,000 people, probably 12,000,000 are Rumanians, a race of pure Latin blood, singular in the polyglot Balgans. But there are a million and a half Magyars in the Transylvania-Banal areas, nearly a million Germans, and a Million Jews, 800,000 Ukrainian Russians in Bes- sarabia, and many Slavs. , Modern Rumania dales from 1857 when, after the Crimean War, Moldavia and Wnllachia were united .under a common king. Caught geographically between Russia and Turkey-in-Europe, Rumania has always had a stormy history, involved again mid again in wars and diplomatic crises. Just before the World war she annexed the Dobruja area in'the Balkan war of 1913. Germany Is Outbid The Central Powers bid high for Rumanian support in 1914, but that country soon found that she was being stripped to feed the Germans. So when the Allies bid Transylvania, the Banat, Hungary up to the Tisza river, and other gains, Rumania declared war on Austro-Hungary in 1916. Much of the country was conquered by the Germans, but the Armistice compelled their retirement. The enlarged borders of Rumania, including Bukowina, were set by the Treaty of Trianon. Always a scat of anti-Jewish agitation, Rumania was torn by internal factionalism fanned by the exile and return of King Carol. By 193G the lion Guard, a Fascisl organization had reached such strength as to threaten I the monarchy. Diplomatic representatives- of Italy. Germany, Japan and Portugal actually marched behind the bodies of two Rumanian volunteers with Franco in Spain in a propaganda funeral that raised feeling lo a high .piti-h. Carol suppressed 1hc Iron Guard, and closed the universities where much of its strength lay. But Oetavian Goga, becoming premier, rut in effect National Christian parly program which almost duplicated that of the Iron Guard, with Jewish persecutions and press suppressions. Conditions grow worse under the Goga regime, economically and politically. nidatonjiip Set Up Early this year, Carol overrode parliamentary proeodury and practice, and set up what amounts lo a military dictatorship to save the country from Fascist domination. In late April most of the Iron Guard leaders were arrested, and the movement broken, at least on the surface. TRANSYO/ANI IRON MI'NES tensly* oil well, in the eastern section. Ldher^S. Lehman Will Run for Fourth Term New York Governor Will Oppose Prosecutor Dewey, of G. 0. P. ROCHESTER, N. Y. — (/P) — New York's Governor Lehman yielded to 1 the pleas of Democratic party chicf- tians Friday and agreed to accept re- nomination for a fourth term. Political Note Lehman's acceptance came 24 hours after the Republicans had nominated for governor Thomas E. Dcwey, 36- year-old racket-busting district attorney. Lehman broke with President Roosevelt a year ago, the president taking exception to Lehman's statement that, as Roosevelt's successor as governor of New York, he had wiped out Roosevelt's deficit and balanced the state's budget. Political observers say the New York state Democratic party is controlled, not by the president, bul jointly by Governor Lehman and Postmaster James A. Farley. Governor Lehman, a Jew, is a conservative Democrat with a tremendous business following both in New York City and upstate. A New York broker, he entered politics with Franklin D. Roosevelt but was politically independent, last year coming to an open break with the president over the mounting federal debt. ' Lehman, a Jew, is the only other man besides Alfred E. Smith, a Catholic, to hold the governorship of New York for more than the customary two terms. League Abandons Vearsailles Treaty May Pave Way for Germany's Becoming Member of the League GENVA, Switzerland.—(/!>)—The assembly of 'the League of Nations Friday accepted the principle of separtt- ing the League covenant from the Versailles treaty. The League of Nations was born of that post-war peace pact, the covenant—its constitution—being writen in- o the Versailles treaty. Approval of separating them, coming the day after the. Munich conference on Czechoslovakia, paves the way for the erasure of one of Germany's main arguments against membership. New Storm Heads for New England Passes Over Eastern Section of North Carolina Friday By the Associated Press A southern storm which formed over eastern North Carolina after two tornadoes ripped through Cahrlcston, moved rapidly toward Long Island and the hurricane stricken areas of New England Friday. The weather bureau said there was little likelihood that the fore-; would be as dcvasting as last week's storm.

" From Asch, Czechoslovakia, 'dispatches mdici.tcd all fighting stopped Friday in the Sudctenland frontier region, as Ihe Sudeten Free Corps men prepared to move back to their homes behind the German army. Chamberlain Acclaimed LONDON, Eng.—(A 1 )—Prime Minister Chamberlain flew home Friday lo be greeted by cheering throngs. He brought with him the peace pact on Czechoslovakia and strong hopes for a broad European settlement as the fruits of diplomacy.

Announcement of the call came from the cabinet sc.ssion at Elyscc palace with President Lebrun presiding, shortly after Daladier returned from the conference which ended the German-Czech crisis and threats of an immediate European war. Mussolini Welcomed HOME, Italy— (,¥)— Premier Mussolini received one of the greatest welcomes followers ever accorded him when he returned to Rome Friday from the four-power conference in Municlj. An International Group to Oversee Division of Czechs Britain, Germany Separately Pledge Never to Fight Other FOUR-POWER PACT France, Italy Also Sign- Italy May Withdraw From Spain MUNICH. Germany — (fPj— Prime Minister Chamberlain and Reichs- fuehrer Hitler Friday added a new Anglo-German declaration of peace lo the four-power Munich accord that Gave Germany a part of Czechoslovakia and averted a'European war. After the British and German chiefs had signed with Premier Mussolini of Italy and Premier Daladier of France the pact for Czechoslovakia's dis-'' memberment, the first two made a joint declaration that their "two peoples never will go to war with one another again." ' . ' The German troops at the Czechoslovak border will begin the gradual occupation' of Sudetenland at midnight Friday. Czechs Accept Chamberlain announced the following: . ' -.. . . • 1. The' Czechoslovak 1 " goyemmdht" has accepted the Munich accord. 2. An international commission, to supervise the cession is meeting in Berlin and will enter Sudetenland Saturday. 3. Demobilization of Europe's armies and the British navy "will come later" —after the German occupation is accomplished, within 10 days. Chamberlain expressed the belief that Munich opened the way "to appeasement in Europe."' On this note of peace he flew back to London. Daladier left by air for Paris, after a doclaratio nof French friendship for Germany. Mussolini entrained earlier to return to the acclaim of his people as the "sovior of the peace of Europe." Diplomats at Rome believed Mussolini might soon begin withdrawal of troops from Spain as a further contribution to the gentral appeasement. Peace Is Assured MUNICH, Germany— (jp) — Western Europe's four major powers early Friday^ announced agreement "in principle' 1 on plaas for ceding to Germany the Sudeten regions of Czechoslovakia and thus keep Europe at peace. Prime Minister Chamberlain, Reichs- fuehrer Hitler, Premier Daladier and Premier Mussolini announced they hade some to terms for settling the Czechoslovak issue. The official announcement said vacating of the Su- deten region would begin Saturday mid be completed 10 days later. Each of the four powers arc to "hold themselves responsible" for execution of the plan, the commdninue declared. "Conclitons governing the evacuation will be laid down by an intematioal commission" including Czechoslovak representatives as well as of the four nations. Germany's occupation of the first allotted j-egio nwill start October 1 with successive ureas marked off for gradual cession lo the Reich. The announcement said the cession would be made without "any existing instulliitions having been destroyed" in (he area fringing Germany where Czechoslovakia's principal fortifications ure concentrated. Plebiscites to Be Held The communique termed the territories marked for immediate cession as "predominantly German." In other disputed sections, where Czechoslovaks and Germans reside, plebiscites are to he held under the same inler- natiunal commission that is to direct vacation of the ceded ureas. Fixing a date "nol later than the end of November" for the voting, the commission is to determine conditions of the plebiscites, using the Saar ple- biscie as a pattern. Hungarian, Polish Demands Another conference within three months was decided on to., consider Hungarian ad Polish minorities within Czechoslovakia if some agreement is not reached by the contending parties meantime.
