Backs Pension Plan in Calif ornia Endorses Downey iri Preference to "Dyecl-in-Wool Reactionary" By the Associated Press The Now Deal became more than ever the dominant election issue Monday when President Roosevelt and Secretary Wallace took a hand in the California and New York campaigns and Alfred M. Landon declared continuation of great federal power would lead to Fascism. Sherman Downey, who won the Democratic senatorial nomination in California with support from the $30- cvery-Thursday pension movement, was endorsed by the president as "a real liberal in mind and in heart." Downey headquarters in Los Angeles made public a letter from the president to Representative Jerry Voorhis, expressing this opinion of the candidate and adding: "H would be a calamity for California to be represented in the senate by a dyed-in-the-wool reactionary." Downey's Republican opponent is Philip Bancroft, farmer-lawyer. In Washington, Secretary of Agriculture Wallace issued a statement accusing Thomas E, Dewey, Republican candidate opposing Gov Herbert H. Lehman's re-election campaign in New York, of failing to "tell the whole truth" about the income of New York state farmers. He said Dewey had "covered up part of the story" in replying to Lehman's recent statement that the state's farm income had increased 03 per cent n ithe past six yc/.irs. The secretary's statement was read with special interest by many persons because a victory for Dewey in the gubernatorial race would carry him play. Frank J.

Yes, sir, they're going to dedicate a $200,000 memorial museum to Wil on that day—which would have been his 50th birthday if Wiley Post's plane hadn't plunged to earth three year ago.

There will be plenty of celebrities present, of the kind Will' liked to hobnob around with when he was reading the papers and commenting on what they said. It will be the kind of a ceremony where you'd always have been likely to find Will himself, a few years ago, and then you'd have read all about it in the next morning's paper with a kindly crack from Will. There'll be speeches by Governor Marland and Jesse Jones. Howard Hughes, Douglas Corrigan, Eddie Rick- enbackcr, Eddie Cantor, Fred Stone, and George Cohan will be there, and naybe 50,000 other people. And of Mrs. Rogers and the three .-a '' Perched proudly on the knoll where Will Rogers always wanted to build a home, but somehow never did, this solid building of native limestone is, being dedicated as a permanent memorial to the man who launched'a thousand quips, and never an unkind one.

Will's Relatives to Be On Hand But it wouldn't be right to have only the famous and great taking over a memorial for Will Rogers, and so the Bccone College Glee Club will sing, and the Oklahoma Military Academy and A. and M. College bands will play, too. And Will's own relatives, the Herbert McSpaddens, who are running Will's old ranch down near Oologah will be up for the ceremony. Mrs McSpadden is little dubious about the great pile of limestone. "It woul< have been too guady for Will," she said. Built like a ranch house, it has fou exhibition halls, and .looks out over tin rich, lush grazing land that attractei Clem Rogers, Will's fathpr, and lha Will himself loved so well. Already the Indian and pioneer relics from Will's old ranch and from his late home in Santa Monica, Calif., hav been sent on by his family to be in stalled in the museum. ' Big Rodeo and Pageant There'll b.e a big rodeo and pageant of the Old West that Will would have liked if he could see it, because he used to be a rodeo rider himself. Old- timers like Pawnee Bill and Col. Zack Miller are arranging it, and more than a thousand will take part. Episodes of early Oklahoma history begining with the Battle of Claremore Mound between the Osages and the Cherokees in 1818 will be given, the night performance, under lights resounding to the plunking of horses hooves, the squeal of wagon wheels and the crack of the blacksnake whip. No one need be surprised, though, if during the thick of the pageantry and hullabaloo, a dry but unearthly voice should be heard saying: "Shucks! I was just an old cowhand who had a little luck. Why all this here fuss about me?" '" One in a thousand—this pic-j ture of the late Will Rogers. now beinp honored-by a memoij rial in his home town of Clare--; more, Okla., was selected as his. favorite picture by "Will's soa from the family collection of. more than 1000 "favorite pit)-, lures" of their famous father.

If successful, the parachute jumps will become a routine method of getting the small fish from hatcheries into lakes that are difficult to reach by norse trail. The small fish will be dropped in parchment vessels that will hold the fish and a small quantity of water. When the vessels strike the water Nazi Army Chief Disagrees. Resigns Gen. Beck Opposed Czech Crisis, Fearing Germany Unprepared BERLIN—(/P)—Ludwig Beck, chief of the army general staff, resigned Monday and retired to private life because he could not see eye-to eye,with Adalf Hitler. A brief announcement said Hitler had accepted the resignation of General Beck along with that of Col. Gen. Gerd von' Rundstedt, commander of Army Group No. 1. Although the announcement said both commanders were relieved at their "own desire," it was believed they were taking the consequences for not being in step with Nazi policies. General Beck, first chief of the army General- Staff in the nation's rejuvenated army forces, was said to have become increasingly in conflict, with Hitler during the efforts of Britain's Lord Runciman to mediate the Czecho- slovak-Sudetenland dispute. When it became clear that Hitler was determined to risk war to "liberate" Su- detcnland, General Beck felt he could not take responsibility of mapping military plans for a Germany he considered inadequately prepared to meet a combined allied force. About that time General Beck was sent on a "special mission" to the Western front—across the county from Czechoslovakia—to inspect Germany's Siegfried line on the Rhine facing France's Maginot line. He continued to hold the title of chief of the General Staff, but Hitler was in active charge. Because of the crisis at that time, Hitler was said to have felt it unwise to have any army shake-up. General Beck, as a disciplined soldier, realized he had underestimated German will to conquest and had overestimated the will of Britain and France to prevent further spread of German influence. He chose retirc- the yare expected to capsize and the fish will be liberated in the lake. Gobbled Pile of Food: Collected $40 CHICAGO—(/Pj—Louis Stein, 50 ordered a hamburger at a Lawrence street restaurant and ate it. He kepi on ordering hamburgers and a crowd gathered to watch him.

San- had bet Leuis he couldn't do it withir two hours. ment as did Rundstedt, apparently for much the same reason. The army, however, is strong for both mjen. They were both given a boost, in rank, on retirement, to colunel-gencraliships, which is next to a field marshal's rank. General Beck in addition was granted permission to wear the uniform of the Fifth Artillery regiment. Hitler wrote both retiring generals letters thanking them fervently for their past services.
