r John T. Flynn Says: Washington Lays Down Ban-age of Words—Semantics to Mr. Chase—as Defense Program Gets Under Way. By JOHN T. FLYNN NBA Service Stuff Correspondent NEW YORK.—Mr. Stuart Chase last year wrote a book about the tyranny of words. Our daily conversation, our newspapers, our public utterances b'ristlo with words, words bulging with ominous meanings. And we use those Words to blast our foes or favor our special objectives. : ® They arc words like "Coinmunlsl" or 'Americanism'." If we dislike n man's views, we call them comnmi.isl, and that settles their hash. If we vvunt to paint nn idea, acceptably, we call it "Americanism" and lluil makes it per- Jack Fulkerson Is Selected by Team as Most Valuable Will Receive Stewart's Gold Trophy Award Wednesday LETTER MEN NAMED School to Present Gold Football to the Best , Student-Athlete Members of the Hope High School football learn Tuesday selected Jack Fulkerson, end and senior, as the most Valuable member of the squad during the past season.

The playei has been chosen, but the school officials withheld his name. 20 to Get Sweaters Coach Foy Hammons announced th lust of players to receive sweaters in recognition of their work on the gridiron this season. The list numbers 18 players and two student managers. The letter men arc: Captain Dean Parsons, Charles Ray Baker, David Coleman, Joe Eason, Sonny Murphy, Roy Taylor, Jimmy Daniels, Tommy Samuels, Jack Fulkerson, Tommy Turner, Major Si'mpson, Norman Green, Jimmy Taylor, Thomas Quimby, Bobby Ellen, Westley Calhoun, Bill Tom Bundy, Mike Sncicker. The two student managers are Dorsey Fuller and Raymond Bright, assistant. Captain Dean Parsons, Joe Eason and Jack Fulkerson, all three-year men, will receive jackets instead of sweaters. It is a custom of the school to present four-year men with white sweaters or blankets—which ever they desire—but since there are no four-year men on the squad all will receive red sweaters with white numerals and service stripes except Parsons, Eason and Fulkerson who chose jackets. Two players will be lost from next ' year's team, Jack Fulkerson, who graduates at mid-term, and Ji'm'my Taylor, who receives his diploma next .spring. feet. An old word, but a with n new purpose, is now being used very freely. It is the word "defense." Washington is preparing a big "defense" program The ijooplo are told they must arm for national defense. We read that the WPA is to be gradually demolished and money applied to "national defense." The reason is plain. The people are in favor of national defense. There is no man who does not want national defense for this country. Therefore whatever is proposed in the way ol arms is called "national defense." That make scvcrybody who opposes the plan a traitor, a star gazing idealist, who wants to expose his country to attack in the nii'iv.'e of pacifism. But since the new arament program—whatever it is to be—is proposed in th name of national defense, then it must be judged by the lest of whether it is really for national defense or for some oilier purpose. Navy Asks IJijjKest Boost It is conceded by everyone that the nation needs an army and a navy. At present it has an army of 1G5.000. The chief of .staff, General Craig, proposes that it be enlarged. But he asks only 3000 additional men No one will think that dangerous. H is the navy which is asking for the immense increases in battleships and other heavy tonnage vessels, the 'ull extent of which has only been whispered so far. Also wo are to have 12,000 plans by the end of 1939. Now, if the object of the vast naval expansion is defence, the question irises—what and whom are we to defend ourselves against? And what are we to defend'. 1 National defense can be expanded to mean anything any champion of a vast navy wishes it to mean. It 'ni'ay mean the protection of the shores of continental United States from invasion or attack. It may mean to defend the continental shores plus Hawaii. Or it may mean to protect the Philippine Islands or it may mean that the nevy must be strong enough to protect American "interests," no matter whore they are located, even up the Yanagtzc river in China. Or, upon the principle that the best defense is of- iJrise-^-to attack first—this idea of national defense may mean a navy largo enough to cope successfully with any combination of powers anywhere in the world. Therefore, the tei'm' national defense can be used to defenc any conceivable expansion oC our nava armaments. Before this controversy goes any further, the advocates of naval expansior might be asked anil forced by insistcn questioning to say just what they meat by the term "national defense." Un less they do, the whole discussion cai gel nowhere. AIRLINER CRASH Troops Pour Into Paris as French Face Labor Crisis Government Augments 26,000 Soldiers Already in the Capital 4 A. M.

The Department of War now maintains only six attaches below the Rio Grande. Labor Crisis PARIS—(/P)—Paralysis of France by a one-day nationwide strike was threatened by widening labor support Monday in spite of government measures which held military rule over the heads of a large section of the workers preparing the Wednesday walkout. The government announced a specia "mass decree" allowing the requisitioning under military supervision o: all public service employes—subway bus line, electric and gas plant workers. The delivering of requisitions to the nation's railway workers was proceeding. -••These meajsurcs were taken us gov crnmenl employes' ' unions totaling 950,000 public servants, including 520,000 railroad workers, defied cabine orders to disregard the strike call. In prolesl against government de croc laws suspending the 40-hour worl week and imposing new taxes, 5,000,000 general Confederation of Labor members were on call to strike. Throughout the country unions were approving resolutions to walk out in a protest demonstration. Military officials said the requisitioning of public service employes would proceed as follows: Army authorities would be placed n charge of the companies affected incl take over supervision of opera- ions. If the workers, then working 'or the army in the interest of national defense, refused to perform their duties or disobeyed orders Ihey .vould be subject to trial by military courts. If the regular workers chose to strike :md run the risk of court-martial, the army could replace them with soldiers who would take over the job of driving engines, shoveling coal, selling tickets. The Ministry of National Defense would be in direct command of the public services after the requisition order became effective.

Official Vote on the Amendments Official Canvass for Entire State Reported as Follows NEW ORLEANS, La.-(/P)—The board of directors of the New Orleans Cotton exchange, in its annual report issuoc late Monday, said the South faced 1 a "readjustment of the first magnitude which vitally affects" the entire nation, if the pdesent plan of crop control continues. After pointing to the unprecedented crop production of 1937 and the resultant record carryover, the board saic the Department of Agriculture estimated for the 1938-39 crop was in excess of 12,000,000 bales. "Your Board of Directors feels," the report said, "thai if Ihe present plan of crop control, in all its ramifications is to continue, the Soulh is facing, i: not the greatest economic crisis since the Civil war, certainly a readiustmcnt of the mast serious magnitude which vitally affects, not only the cotton industry and ita people, but the entire nation. "We are at the crossroads. Are we going to give up our foreign markets nnd plan only for dovrieslic use or are we to regain our world markets arid again take our place, as the grealst cotton producing country?" Offers "Basic Principles';, The boa'rd said that, while it di'd not offer a solution, the answer "may be found" in the following "basic principles." "1. As long as our cotton farmer buys in a protected market, and sells in a free market, he must be compensated in some manner to meet world j conditions, if he is to receive a fair 1 return for his labor. '2. That crop control 'm'ust be continued until our present surplus is reduced to normal proportions. 3. Farm loans which may have been necessary as emergency measures have proven that they produce no cures. We cannot have loans which create a false price level and in effect become purchases by the government at a price above the world market. The cotton then goes into government hands instead of consumptive channels. 'Some plan must IM> put into operation whereby the farmer shall sell his cotton to any buyer al the world price and through adjusted payments receive for his efforts a return equal to what he has received in the last two years. '4. That during any year of restricted acreage, should the farmer face a disastrously short crop, he shall be compensated by some form of crop insurance. : '5. That as soon as possible some plan shall be put into effect for the liquidation of the surplus holdings of government cotloii and this cotton should be liquidated through the facilities of the cotton trade which are betler equipped to handle such liquidation than any new government agency which may be established for this purpose." Make World Price The report added that under a solu- ,ion which would embody the five joints, American cotton would make he world price and not seek it. This is in no sense a criticism of Secretary Wallace and his associates," .he report said. "It must be reali/cd .hat his hands are, at times, politically tied, which frustrates his plans and in Jie end nullifies his efforts."

Powerhouse TCU, unbeaten and untied, splits with Notre Dame the No. 1 ranking position in American collegiate football. Carnegie Tech also is unbeaten and untied except for the disputed 7-0 decision which is dropped to Noire Dame on an official's blunder. Tech's quarterback, with the ball on his own 40-yard line, asked the referee what down it was. The referee replied it was third down. Tech tried another ground play, figuring it had a fourth down in which to punt out of danger. Actually, however, it was then fourth down—the referee admitling he had made a mistake—and Ihe ball went over to Notre Dame on Tech's 40, setting up the one and only touchdown in a game which otherwise probably would have been a scoreless tie.
