"National Defense" Becomes a Good Excuse for Extra Loans Federal Loans Expected to Rescue Public Utilities From Bad Repute Brought on by Financial Collapse of Samuel Insull By PRESTON GROVER WASHINGTON—A back-stage analysis of the arrangement'by which the public utilities ;ire to get something near two billion dollars of government money in the next two years discloses that national defense is far from the sole purpose of the outlay, although an important one. At various times during the depres- .© sion "low" it was estimated that if the :lure to property in the hand of American Jews permanently domiciled abroad unless they were former German nationals who had emigrated. ^Secretary Hull said at his press conference Monday that this governmcn is observing with keen interest developments in Germany. "Huns and Barbarians" Senator King (Democrat, Utah), in a radio speech Monday night called on nations of the world to voice "solemn protest against the hideous crimes of the Nazi government against not only Jews but Christians." He declared that the Hitler regime "revives the worst forms of medievalism and manifests some of the characteristics of. the en- cicnt Huns and barbarians," "The treatment by the Nazi government of the Jews in Austria and Germany," he continued, "can scarcely be parallelled fo rbrutality and fiendishness by primitive peoples in the darkest periods of the world's history. "While 30 governments, including our own, took cognizance of the tragic conditions in Germany, I regret that they did not submit, individually and collectively, protests to the Nazi government against its indefensible and wicked treatment of hundreds of thousands of German and Austrian citizens. They were warranted in advising the Nazi government that a continuation of its persecution of the Jews would call for a severance of all diplomatic relations with it." utilitiese could get credit they could start a building boom of their own by putting up new transmission and distribution lines and installing new generating equipment. Utilities Had a Slump Because of the bad odor surrounding utilities investments due to the Insull debacle and a mass of adverse publicity connected with TVA and the Utility Holding Company act, utilities have not been able to get adequate credit. For years the utilities have fallen behind in their spending for expansion and betterment. Just how long and how much is speculative, but 'a competent government source has compiled figures indicating these things: Normal annual spenclingjby the utilities in the mid "twenties" for plant betterment and expansion was about §500,000,000 a year. From 1928 through 1933 the utilities speeded up expansion at times pouring out $700,000,000 a year. This was above tli£ average requirement and left the industry perhaps "overbuilt" so that during the next two or three years the utilities had to spend only $200,000,000 to $300,000,000 a year for plant betterment in order to keep even. A Government Build-Up By 192JJ the demand for power had about caught up with the expansion Hit instead of resuming the half bil- ion dollar average, the companiei could rake up only $200,000,000 to $300,000,000 a year. As a result, they fell Behind a corresponding amount in 193G 1937'and 1938. Now, with the government supply- ng the credit, they will be able to take dp this slack of $200,000,000 to $300,)00,000 a year for three years with a total outlay of close to a billion.

GLENPA FARRELL "TorchyGets Her Man" Detective Thriller THURS. 'ILLEGAL TRAFFIC' the average halfbillion dollar requirements each year for 1939 and 1940 could trike up another billion. That is a rough outline of the "why" in regard to the two billion. The bulk of the building is to be in the so-called "bottle-neck" of the heavy industries. That is the industrial quadrangle bound by Massachusetts on the New England comer, and Chicago, St. Louis and Birmingham, Ala., as other corners. Then, If Trouble Comes The money will be uso/1 to install new generating equipment in private plants. .It, also, will build inter-connecting units between industrial zones so that if one source of power is cut of: (perhaps by bomks or sabotage), an impqrtnat industrial ling can be kep going with power from another zone. Equally important, it will give power companies the money they have been unable to get elsewhere for the very sort of plant expansion they would have carried on if public confidence had not been jarred. Special note: It will be well to watch if the "needs of national defense" do not also arise to justify a large loan to railroads for equipment—as a means also of easing the present wage controversy. By George Ross Would Walk Ten Miles to Save Writing STOWMARKET, Eng.-(/P)—Rather than write letters, Suffolk farm workers walk 10 miles to deliver a message. This was reported by D. S.

NEW YORK—Orson Wells' recent •ndio report of an invasion from Mars lias launched a boom in the horror market. Hawkers have bought up large stocks of cheap editions of the more fantastic works by H. G. Wells and are selling them in the open here. We heard one of al fresco salesman barking the other nighth, "Read all about them, the men of Mars—take home a copy! 1 Only the literal-minded have clung to the tomes by Wells. Other street fakirs have boughht the advice of biblioghilese and have found out that Juices Verne had a pretty vivid imagination and there has been a run on him, too. And the public is buying and reading these fantistic this week with more zest than when they were originally brought out. Movie exhibitors, too, have seen an im'm'ediate advantage in yanking oul the old films with planetary casts oi characters. The morning after the spurious "disaster,' one enterprising theater owner in Brooklyn put in a call for the picture made out of H. G Wells' "Things to Come." A demanc was heard at the Film Exchange for "King Kong," that memorable shiver- picture in which a gorilla, taler than many Manhattan buildings, came to ay New York a visit. And there may a connection between the "catas- rophe" in Grovers Mill, N. J., and the ecision'of the manager of the Rialto hold his double bill of "Dracula" nd "Frankerislein" an extra week, in- teaed of following his original, sched- le and replacing them.

Mystery Women We've written before about the mys- Lerious lady of Russian mien who has been turning up alone .at the opening nights for five years and never yet has consented to reveal her identity. Now we have just caught up with a little lady who has been coming to the restaurant in the Hotel Taft every night at seven. She takes a table near the band, instructs the waiter to bring each course at intervals of every half hour, completes her dinner in a steady silence at ten, pays her check, leaves no tip and wanders out. No one knows who she is; no one has been able to find out. She sits near the orchestra, it is presumed, because she is hard of hearing, but to the remainder of her strange behavior there are no clues. Texas Canadian Co. .
