TWO 4 < 4 4 4 4 < < < < < 4 4 1 Roosevelt May Deliver Four Major Speeches Considering Personal Ap-„ .pearances in Pennsyl'"., " vunia, Ohio, Illinois and New York , Washington. Oct. 14 </P> — President Roosevelt may carry his fourth term campaign personally Into Pennsylvania, Ohio and Illinois, In addition to his home state of New York, where an aggregate of 135 electoral votes are at stake. 'It was said authoritatively today that these states are high on the presidential intincrary now under consideration, although the White House «ald no dates or places are ready for announcement. Coincident with an announcement by Presidential Secretary—Sisphea- Early that Mr. Roosevelt had declined an Invitation to speak next _ Wednesday night on the New York Herald Tribune forum, Democr,atlp spokesmen said the chances ' are good that he will speak in Philadelphia, Cleveland and Chicago, probably alter his address on international affairs before th« Foreign Policy Association in New York City next Saturday night. Speech Talk Follows Berie Letter Early's statement that the president is "talking about" other speeches came after publication by the White. House 'of a letter to the president from Adolf A. Berle,- Jr., assistant secretary of state, which a ceased Governor Thomas E. Dewey, Republican presidential nominee, of making a "surprisingly dishonest effort" in his Charleston, W. Va., *peech to make,-It appear that the present administration secretly hopes to "set up a communist system." Berle «aid Dewey "ripped a single sentence" from a memorandum Berle prepared in 1939 and put it forward."as the doctrine advocated, ..fb'oXigh the entire memorandum 'showed the exact contrary." ..The White House also made available to reporters, although not as a White House document, a compilation of some of Dewey's quotations from administration speeches, testimony or documents. Each quotation was followed by a fuller quotation from the same record, speech or document in obvious design to develop the contention that Dewey had distorted the meaning. Other Talks Considered Mr. Roosevelt's campaign' consultants, it was learned, hav* talked of speeches at Detroit, St. Louis, Buffalo and the Twin Cities of Minnesota, but ths likelihood of their being Included in a swing is regarded by them as slim compared •with others higher on the tentative list. The president probably will not go west of Chicago In any •tumping tour, one spokesman said. The four states tentatively marked for possible visits are all populous battle grounds. All have big Industrial centers where party workers have been active in getting voters registered. New York has 47 electoral votes, Pennsylvania 35, Illinois 2S, and Ohio 25. All were carried by Mr. Roosevelt in l«o but are now classed by many politicians as doubtful. RooaeveH Decline* Forum Talk One Dewey talk will be on foreign policy on the New York Herald —.Tribune forum at 9:30 p. m. CEWT) ~next Wednesday. This In the same Jnlght the President was asked to speak, but declined. In announcing a telegram of refusal had been sent last night .to Mrs. Ogden Reid, vice president of the newspaper, Secretary Early said that as far as he knew no reason was given. la New York, Robert E. Hannegan, Democratic national chairman, said he had written an explanation of the President's action to Mrs. Ogden -Reid, vice president of the Herald Tribune. Mrs. Reid's secretary said no such communication had been received yet. Dewey has speeches scheduled for Buffalo, October 31; New York 'City November 4 and a radio studio election eve talk, as well as addresses in St. Louis Monday, Minneapolis October 24, Chicago October 25 and Boston November 1.

Mrs. Norton's statement was !s-. uad through tha women's division •of- the Democratic National Committee.

Chairman Green (D-RI) of the Senate campaign expenditures committee disclosed today, but he refused to make the affidavits public.' Likewise Green would not divulge the names or number of the unionists involved but snitf. it had been, established that President Dan Tobin of the teamsters was not one of them, and that none of the participants was "a personal friend of President Roosevelt." Affidavits Not Rtvealed The affidavits were obtained yesterday by Robert T. Murphy, attorney tor the; Senate committee, at New York headquarters of the union. Tobin himself did not make an affidavit, Green said because he wasn't an eye 'witness. Asked if the affidavits would be made public, Green replied, '1 don't know when or if they ever will be made public." That will be left up to ths full committee which will consider it here next Wednesday Green added. Lt, (jg) Randolph .

Rich Oil Executive Attacks Roosevelt Says President Hopes to Make Truman Next Leader of Nation Philadelphia, Oct.'14 (/P)—Joseph N f .

"Even the old-type, 12,000-pound factory buster detonated on the surface and destroyed Its-target by the blast alone," the ministry observed. , The blast of either one makes that of the Nazi flying bomb look like a toy. The new bomb is three times the size of the original blockbusters, one of which is known to have destroyed at least 30 buildings during an attack on Emden. That would mean that under the same conditions the "earthquake" might flatten up to 100 buildings. Scientists estimate that 1U blast damage covers an area of approximately 80,000 square yards. It is streamlined so that it will penetrate into the earth even from moderate altitudes-. It carries a delayed action use so that the bomb does not explode until it is inside or under its target. The head contains the heaviest possible charge of "a very powerful explosive." Its extraordinary penetrative power was shown In recent attacks on the submarine pens at Brest. They were among the strongest shelters ever built by man, with concrete roofs 12 feet thick. "Four 12,000-pounders hit the roof and drilled their way right through the concrete to explode Inside," the air ministry declared. The new bombs also have been used with great success in knocking out formidable German long-range weapon sites; One of them dropped on a hillside In Prance burled hundreds of flying bombs the Germans had stored in limestone,caves. It took only one to put the big German battleship Tirpltz out of action, probably for the duration. They also were used to <!rsln the vital Dortmund-Ems canal, to crumble the sea walls around Wal- cheren island off the Dutch coast where the Germans had long-range guns and to smash the Dembs dam in southern Prance.

Dewey Bid For Baljots Will Be Intensified Has Arranged To Talk in Pittsburgh, Minneapolis, Chicago, Buffalo After St. Louis Address BY JACK BELL •Albany, N. Y., Oct. 14. (^—Pressing his campaign in the doubtful states, Qov. Thomas E, Dewey, on the eve of his departure for St. Louis arranged to make a major campaign address in Pittsburgh th« night of Oct. 20. ' The Republican presidential nominee,, who will leave tomorrow afternoon for a speech In St. Louis Monday night dealing, with whsjt he has called "the urgent need for honesty and competence in our national government," did not announce his Pittsburgh subject. There was immediate speculation, however, that this speech, which will follow the Governor's talk on "This Must Be the Last War" at the New York Herald - Tribune forum Oct. 18, would deal largely with the problems facing industry and labor In the postwar reconver- sion period. Thus far, he has made no "business" talk as such, but has touched on the subject hi several speeches. No Comment On Roosevelt There was no comment from the Governor's office on the White House announcement that President Roosevelt had declined to talk on the Herald-Tribune Forum, which he customarily closes with an address. With evidence Increasing that the President otherwise may enlarge his political speaking schedule, aides said Dewey also might sandwich additional dates Into his program for the remainder of this month. The schedule includes appearances Oct. 24 at Minneapolis, Oct. 25 at Chicngo and Oct. 31 at Buffalo. There was some talk of a major stop in Ohio or Michigan on the return trip from Chicago. Dewey's visit to Pittsburgh will take him. Into an area that has been strongly Democratic In recent years but into a state which -Herbert Brownell, Jr., GO# national chairman, said yesterday he was confident the Republicans would carry Nov. 7. Pennsylvania. Held Vital Other Dewey followers, however, have made no secret of the fact that they consider Pennsylvania, with its 35 electoral votes, second only to New York as a major battleground. The state three times has gone for President Roosevelt, and Republicans this year have made strenuous efforts to reverse that result. Earlier in the campaign, 'Dewey visited Pittsburgh for conferences with business, labor and political leaders on his way to the Republican governors' conference 'In St. Louis. At that tlrr?, local Republican leaders urged him to return for a major speech, Dewey plans to lay particular emphasis on "competence" in government In his SU Louis talk, Which is to be broadcast by the NBC and Blue networks from 9 to 9:30 p. m., central)war time, and rebroadcast later, "fhe time of the Pittsburgh talk has not been set. Aides said that at St. Louis the nominee was expected to continue the vigorous criticisms of the New De'al and President Roosevelt he began, in Oklahoma City continued In Charleston, W. last week. that and Va, Interest Rate On Public Debt Low Wartime Increase Accomplished at Average Rate of Only 1 3-4 Per Cent Morgenthau Says Los Angeles, Oct. 14 (;P}-iTreasUry Secretary Henry Morgenthau said ioday that the vast wartime Increase in the public debt has been accomplished at an average Interest rate of only 1% per cent, compared with 4 >/i per cent in World War I. "The resulting interest saving approximates four bUiton uO;Ir>rs a year," he said in an address prepared for delivery at a war bond rally. He added that Interest in all securities sold during this conflict has been fully taxable, while Issues marketed during the last world war were all either wholly or partially Agreement On II. S.

Thus the saving to the treasury will continue over a long period of years."

Apparently they are much closer to War and State Department experts who favor control of the enemy's war-making resources . through selective .elimination or control of such Industries as synthetic oil manufacture and steel processing. Several points now reported as generally acceptable to the experts are said to Include: The breaking up of large German estates and their conversion into small farms to be distributed among the German people. ; The preservation or restoration, under rigid Allied control, of some of'the. industries and .mining operations in Germany which are considered necessary to economy of Europe as well as the existence of the German people. Tough policies in dealing with the German people either Individually or in political or other groups—for example no fraternization is allowed between American invading troops and German citizens—but provision for the relief ol these people to prevent needless hunger and cold. Restoration of Transportation Restoration of the transportation system sufficiently to allow the exchange of products within Germany —some areas are food 'deficit territories and some produce a food surplus but lack fuel found in other areas. Indefinite control of German industry, and political and to some extent economic organizations—for instance to prevent cartels—so that the old i union of politics and industry can not be revived to start another war before Germany has a chance to redeem Itself as a "peace loving" state. All the long range policies for German control find some reflection in the detailed policies for the period of military occupation which will begin when the country is fully-conquered. Plans for that have been well advanced in agreement with. Britain and Russia insofar as Allied governmental machinery and the creation of these spheres of control are concerned. The degree to which major Industries and transportation systems are maintained and restored in this period will have a direct bearing on the state of Herman industrial power In the long future. Military Occupation Expanding its machinery for the period of military occupation, the State Department said today, that two foreign service' of fleers, Ware Adams of Savannah, Ga., and Parker W. Buhrman, of Botetcourt County, Va., have been ordered to loin the staff of General Elsenhower In London as aides to Ambassador Robert Murphy, political advisor on German affairs. Reports persist too, that Leon Henderson, former director of the Office of Price Administration, may be named to handle economic affairs during the period of military government in the American sec- or. Meanwhile another factor in the iope for early decisions on the gues- ;ion of Germany's postwar future '3 ' ti"i£ r.iCiCO'rr EncctiTlg Cri Minister Churchill and Premier Stalin'which has been widely reported to be concerned with the future of Germany as jirell as with other urgent European questions. Having met with President Roosevelt at Quebec immediately before he went to Moscow, Churchill is in a position to help clarify the American position to Stalin as well as present British point of view. Little of an exact nature is known about what Russia wants out of Germany except that she has plans for using German manpower in rebuilding Russia and that she intends to add to Poland, East Prussia and other eastern areas of the Reich. Both ore regarded here as entirely acceptable to the American government.

In a Spencerville Republican rally, however, Randall accused his opponent of inconsistency, asserting that "President. Roosevelt in 1938 tried."in Maryland to purge Senator Tydings, who 'now tamely licks the hand that smote him." Randall particularly attacked the federal food administration which he labeled a bureaucratic bungler In handling food distribution, saying large quantities of foods have been permitted to spoil in_storfc houses - because of " "incompetent management and red tape." Then launching Into a general attack on the New Deal he declared: "In no other nation in the world, even in the present age confusion, Is there a government other than Roosevelt's New Deal government, where: negligence is an asset, incompetence a virtue, extravagance a prerequisite'to a preferment, distortion of the law an open door to judicial appointment, misapplication of public funds an amusing aberration and the power of taxing used to promote or punish Individuals and 'accomplish political purposes rather than to raise money to finance the nation."

Roosevelt Not To Malce Forum Talk Declines Invitation; Reporters Referred to Han- negaii for His Reason Washington, Oct. 14 (IP) — The White House announced today that President Rooosevelt has declined an invitation to speak at the .concluding session next Wednesday night of the tjew York Herald Tribune forum, Gov. Thomas E. Dewey, his Republican opponent, will speak on the forum that evening on foreign policy, his topic being, "ThU Must Be The Last War," White House Press Secretary Stephen Early referred reporters to Democratic National Chairman Robert E.'Hannegan in New York when asked why the President turned down the invitation. The President usually has addressed the forum in former years. "The President," Early said, "declined the invitation by telegram last night. He didn't say why, to my knowledge, end It was a very brief telegram. You can ask Chairman Hannegan why." Early repeated what the President told reporters yesterday about future campaign plan* — that th« President la talking about other speeches beyond the one planned for Oct. 21 in New York but "nothing U ready for announcement."

State Charges Jealousy District, Attorney Anthony Brazil charged that Mrs. Andrews shot young Lovett in a burst of jealous rage because he had gone to the Llnde home for dinner. He introduced testimony into the trial in an attempt to show that Mrs. Andrews had been carrying on a "clandestine love affair with the youth. Mrs. A'ndrews and her husband both testified they regarded Jay as ."almost a son," and said there had been no improper relations between them. Prosecution witnesses testified Mrs. Andrews had called Jay endearing names and one told of seeing the defendant "snuggled up" to the youth at a cocktail bar. Mrs. Andrews denied this. The prosecution contended that tests showed young Lovett could not have shot himself, and argued that Mrs. Andrews was the only person who could have shot him.

Boyian, sitting in the county circuit court, announced ne would temporarily withhold and later-mall to the court clerk his ruling on whether Hillman's petition or the demurrers to it should be granted, x x x HUlman sought to restrain Anne Arundel county election supervisors from counting the votes on the referendum of the proposed reorganization of the state appellate court. Walsh, presenting final arguments on behalf of the Anne Arundel county election supervisors stated that since Hillman as a taxpayer would not sustain pecuniary loss should the proposed reorganisation be voted upon, he had no right to bring the petition. Hlllman stated he believed the case should be taken to the Maryland Court of Appeals no matter what Judge Boyian decided; "so we will know exactly what the amendment section of the state constitution means."
