TWELVE THE DAILY MAIL, HAGERSTOWN, MD., TUESDAY, JULY 9, 1940. EXPECT KNOX, WLL Critics Accuse FJXR. Of Setting Up War Cabinet, But Okay Expected WASHINGTON July 9 (£>)— Amid charges that the administration was setting up a war cabinet, the Senate leadership strove today to obtain quick approval of President Roosevelt's Republican appointees to defense cabinet posts. Even opponents conceded that the two nominees—Henry L. Stimson-to be Secretary of War and Frank Knox to be .Secretary of the Xavy—would be confirmed, but debate was lasting longer than expected. Senator Barkley of Kentucky, the Democratic leafier, expressed hope that both appointments jcould be out of the way by nightfall so that the Senate could pass the ?4,000,000,000 Navy Expansion bill before Congress recesses Thursday night for the Democratic National Convention. Senator Clark (D-Mfr) asked for time to oppose the. Stimson and Knox appointments on. the grounds that they were both "interventionists," and Barkley said be would speak briefly in behalf of confirmation. In yesterday's debate, critics contended that the nominations were a step on the road to war. On the other hand Chairman Sheppard (D-Texas) of the military committee hailed them as a sign of national unity at a time of great emergency. VICHY. France, July 9. .(£»).—-The French Chamber of Deputies today approved a bill granting the government of Premier Marshal Henri; Philippe Petain full powers to write a new constitution.

SIPPING HIT HEAVY BLOWS British Destroyer Sunk, Say Nazis; Impressed By Roosevelt Plan BERLIN, July 9. (IP). — Heavy blows to British shipping, including the sinking of the destroyer Whirlwind and several armed merchant ships, were credited to German submarines today by the Nazi high command. The air force, It said, raided port facilities, airports, armament factories and ships in England. A new, intensive campaign to destroy British, merchant shipping has been launched by German naval and air forces and may be expected to continue indefinitely, informed Nazi sources indicated. Opening of the drive was acclaimed by the authoritative commentary Dienst Axis Deutschland, which said 330,000 registered tons of merchant shipping flying the British flag or bound for Britain wpre destroyed 11 Ihv l&at el£lit days, exceeding nil previous figures for any entire month since outbreak of the war. The weekly rate of destruction of merchant shipping claimed by Dienst exceeds that for the month of April 1917, when Germany's unrestricted submarine warfare reached its peak by sinking 852,000 tons of British, Allied and neutral ship- Ping. Whether the drive to cut the lifelines of the British empire is a prelude to a direct attack upon England itself remained a matter of conjecture. The German press centered attention on reports from the United States that President Roosevelt bad suggested Europe and Asia adopt principles of the Monroe Doctrine in solving problems of their respective spheres. Editorial comment in Berlin generally was favorable. Germans said the President's proposals were not completely 'understood, but the general impression prevailed that the United Stales Is giving more thought to "the negative aspects" of its Monroe Doctrine-—meaning that in return for keeping out of the Western Hemisphere, European powers might expect assurance that the United States would keep out of Europe's affairs. "If the United States draws honorable conclusions (from implications of the Monroe Doctrine), not only all Europe but also her English protege will benefit," said the Boerson ZeHung. Mrs. Nannie V.

July 9 (/p).— Nine Oklahoma congressmeii-^-cum- palgning by remote control from the halls of :i Congress grappling with the tusk of national defense— asked Democrats today for renom- inatlou. Fulr skies and a last minulo drive to rout out the voters led most observers to predict 500,000 or more primary hallots would be cast. Nominees will be chosen for the nine congressional jobs and some state offices. "Will Rogers, one-time Moore schoolmaster who conjured a political future with the vote-getting magic of his name In 1932, is after i tlfth term as congressman-at-large. To win he must defeat a Held of 16 other candidates, including former Gov, William H. "Alfalfa Bill" Murray, who in the twilight of a long political career seeks the job he. tilled when Oklahoma was only tlve years old. Of the eight other congressmen, Phil Ferguson, Woodward banker and rancher, probably has the most trouble ahead. He is a Democrat in a district that once was a Republican stronghold, and now rides the fence. Against him in the. primary is K W. Marlnnd. whom he succeeded in Congress after the former oil tycoon was elected governor in 1934. Should be skirt this opposition, he still must face a seasoned G. 0. F. campaigner in November. Charles E. Knox, Enid Republican who gave Ferguson a close battle two years ago, and Ross Ri'/.ley. Guqrnon. candidate for governor in 193S, have waged a lively battle for their party's nomination. PAYMENTS DECREASING. BALTIMORE, July D.—Payments of unemployment benefits are now slowly decreasing in amount, the figrues of the statistical section of the Maryland Unemployment Compensation Board show. The total for the week ending July 6 was $177,652, a reduction "of nearly $5.000 from the aggregate for the preceding six-day period. Cost Asphalt & titfjniorc IBwLiat <Vau WflTERPROO?

(Continued from Page 1) tlar with the number policy players. Other systems include a mad'thing ;alled Chinese, which everybody talks about and nobody follows because it is too complicated. One of the simplest is thatfollow- ed by a well known city official. He shakes up the numbers in his pocket, or bat, and then selects one. K No. "G or No. 8 pops out, be plays that horse. More often than not he horse doesn't win when he plays t, but just let him not play the .lumber he pulls out and bang/in conies the plug. Then there is, the Barbershop, \vhich involves the numbers 1, 7 and 17, which are supposed to be espe- :iully lucky. But 17 has to be omit- ed here because we have only eight starters. Also "there's ,the 13 sys- em, which is considered almost infallible on any Friday the 13th. The 1.3 is pretty easy. You merely count off the runners until you reach the I'.Uli, and that's our winner. Incidentally ticket sellers say that the last horse on (.he card in the last race ol! the day always gets a bigger play than he should if he judged strictly on his past per- ormances. Playing post position Is tricky stuff, a lot sounder than nost systems. At Hugerstowu, for example, the horse on the rail at the m,'ak hi sprints especially has a tough time getting to the front unless plenty, fast. There is some crowding naturally. And this reminds us of the findings of a well-known local bettor who checked the results of the Charles Town meeting to find that in distance races the outside horses were almost consistent losers. He found that in 96 races the No. 1 post horse won 20 times while the No. S post horse won only five. But take our advice and forget all of this. Several years a.go a group of gamblers bad a system that called for betting $100 across the board on the horses that had post positions 1, 2 and 5 in every race. At one stage of their play they were $SO,000 ahead, but the system went sour, as systems have a way of doing, and they wound up winning only about $20.000. There is no end to systems. Some people try to interpret dreams to select: winners, others take the license numbers of their automobiles, still others the number of letters in their names, but between you and me, if any of "them worked that fellow would own all the horses and all the race tracks and most of the dough afloat in the world. In conclusion, if you're not satis- fled with an occasional winner and Just must have a winner every race, why just bet every horse in the race. So simple.

In an effort to forestall trouble the government began mobilizing the nation's military and police forces. Both General Manuel Avila Camacho, administration candidate, and bis •independent opponent, General Juan Andreu Almazan. continued to claim the election ,biit the outcome remained in doubt. Camacho's official Mexican Revolution Party, however, was completing Itsjown tabulation. The opposition, meanwhile, raised a clamor over alleged voting irregularities, and General Almazan said that should he obtain any evidence of fraud he would deem it 'an inescapable obligation to take all necessary means to make the will of the ,t>eople as expressed in the election respected." Hospital authorities said that two American students who were gravely wounded when caught in one of Sunday's election battles were improving, but that several days must pass before their recovery could be regarded as assured.

McNary "said he was "impressed with Willkie's sincerity," and expressed the belief that he would make "a great. campaigner and a splendid President." The two men attended a dinner last night for Republican members of Congress and made brief thank- you talks. Willkie, who had said he would not speak, arose only after the diners had started the campaign shout: "We want Willkie!" Martin acted as toastmaster and predicted that the Republicans would elect a President and a House majority in November. , In the latter event, Martin likely would be elected speaker. He has been in Congress since 1925. Willkie was scheduled to fly on a chartered plane this afternoon to Colorado Springs, Colo., for a vacation. • • House Of Orleans Making Bid For French Throne. BERN, Switzerland, July 9 (£>).— France's forgotten .family —- the House of Orleans—hopes for restoration of the throne in the virtual totalitarian dictatorship which Premier Marshal Henri Philippe Petain is reported forming in the new French state. .. Reports reaching Switzerland today said the bearded Duke of Guise, claimant of the French throne, and his young heir, the Count of Paris, have renewed their bid for recognition working under protection of the Spanish nationalist government at their headquarters near Larache, Spanish Morocco. Dispatches from Vichy, new seat of the German-vainquished French government have said the 84-year- old Premier Petain would become "Chief of State" under a new constitution described as "coi'pora- tive"—the term Italian fascists apply to Premier Mussolini's government. These dispatches added that Petain would assume "only the title of executive power"—presumably as a figurehead—and that th« government would be dominated by a triumvirate composed oC General Maxime Weygand, former Allied commander-in-chief; former Premier Pierre Laval and former Labor Minister Adrien Marquet. • Resignation of President Albert Lebrun was fott^.ust along with expectations that reshaping of the third republic into a totalitarian mold would begin tomorrow or Thursday at a meeting of the French parliament. Recently it was reported a strong group of royalists had installed themselves high in the councils of the Petain government. Rev.

Head said that "when the German consular officer at San Cisco delivered mail to Hoehne, not an accredited agent, he stepped outside the regular diplomatic procedure and became an ordinary person; subject to the law." Federal sources said later that Hoehne's presence in. the Americas paralleled the arrival and arrest of Emil "Wolff three days ago at Balboa, C. Z. They said Wolff managed to toss over the ship's side a 50- pound trunk which was recovered and found to contain documents "in German giving detailed plans for 'action' in Venezuela, Panama and other Latin American countries — particularly with reference to Dutch possessions. Wiedemann, in San Francisco, at first denied knowing Dr. Hoehne but later said the latter paid him a courtesy visit after arriving from Germany June 16 via Yokohama. "This consulate had several letters and three small packages destined for German consulates in Latin America, which we asked Hoehne to deliver for us," said Wiedemann. "The packages contained code material not known to me, and had been forwarded to my office for relay to their destination from the German foreign office in Berlin.
