Roosevelt's first campaign speech, former President Herbert Hoover advanced a five point governmental program today as a medium of obtaining "a restoration of long term confidence. 1 He dircy.ed a four-suaie attack specifically at the president's Monday night address in Balti more and assailed new deal activ ities as destroying the future." confidence in in- u. ,.,,.. !,.,, ihn nrra. rinnt nni-P no:iin is uridntt an un- emolovmcnt relief m oHram that " Bundescn, its health commission- j or. ......... , ...

Harrv Bridges, lean Australian who rose to the first position in San Fran- Cisco maritime unions through the , general strike, today made I the first move to break a waterfront deadlock by asking for an immediate meeting of the joint longshore labor relations committee of the port, of San Francisco. I Employers did not respond to , the request immediately. Deter-; mined to break Bridges' grip on the maritime labor front, they have broken off formal relations with the International Longshoremen's association, of which he is local president, and have notified dock workers that they will be employed only on personal application at tle various docks, i Such a policy would eliminate entirely the longshoremen's hiring hall, a concession won by the union in the bitter four-months 1 1934 strike. Waterfront employers were prepared to reject all longshoremen who are dispatched from the union hall. I Bridges sought the labor relations committe meeting to rule on the employers' action. It is composed of employers and union men, with each side having equal repre-i sentation. In event of a deadlock, former Supreme Court Judge M. C. Sloss is called in to arbitrate and cast the deciding vote, i The employers may reject the Bridges request on the ground they ! no longer recognize the union as ! qualified to speak for the longshoremen. The situation still was muddled today, the first day of the employers' new policy. ' I. EARNS BROTHER IS DEAD ! L. H. Fish received word today from Bedford Hills. N. Y., that his brother. Ira M. Fish, had died there. Ira M. Fish had been chief electrical engineer at the state re- formatory for women in New York. The two brothers had not met in 32 years, L. H. Fish said today. The death frustrated their plan for a reunion during a prospective visit to Albany by Ira M. Fish and wife next summer. From the Headlines By Deacon Richmond "Sally Rand Irkod as Nudists Picket Iier Fan Dance Act" Tho nudists picketed Sally Rand and she is rather Irked, for Sally's always had the sand: exposures never chirked. The "bare" truth is. one must admit that nudists go unclothed . and "Sally never would consent to be so much exposed. She has two large and showy fans ; which so obscure the view, that all the customers in the stands, who're much like me 'and you, will .wonder, if she's ' partly clad or is entirely nude. Deception makes the nudists mad and thus arose the fued. I The flaunting of their naked ness and calling it nudism. Miss Sally thinks is terrible, and calls for criticism: but nakedness, when called fine art, is what appeals to Sally, for nakedness, behind the fans, is right down Sally's alley. I The nudists, on the other hand think that when a person's nude, they not to conceal the fact and try to be a prude. And so they're picketing her act. till she throus away her fans. They :i should let well enough alone, or they'll be "also rar.s." for Sally has a pukritude that few of them can claim and they'll not get much 'i'ttention. when they're all dress-ird the same. a"T, -" ' - Inn FRISCO DOCKS IN DEADLOCK wj SANCTION PARLEY PRICE Also Demands Aggressor Brand Withdrawn - by League CAMPAIGN END NEAR Denies Demanding British Fleet Removed From Mediterranean Rome, April 15. Premier Be nito Mussolini will demand that the League of Nations lift sanctions against Italy as a primary condition to his entering peace negotiations with Ethiopia, diplomatic quarters reported today. The information was that Mus solini had instructed Baron Pom-poo Aloisi, his representative in Geneva, to announce tliat the league must drop sanctions and rescind its verdict branding Italy as an aggressor before Italy will discuss peace terms. Mussolini was reported to con sider the military campaign in Africa virtually ended and there fore to have decided to mlorm tho league of his terms for ne gotiations of peace through the league. Mussolini always has held that peace should be discussed directly between the two nations, Reports that the premier had de manded the recall of the, British fleet from tho Mediterranean before discussing peace were denied in official Italian quarters. Staffs Plan Attack London. April 15. General staff chieftains of the British, French and Belgian fighting forces met today to perfect a plan for mutual defense in event Ger many attacks France or Belgium pending the adoption of a general plan for European peace souani cation.

T. Hockensmith, postmaster here. If the increase is sustaned throughout the remaining three quarters of this year, Albany's post office will be restored to the first class rating whicn it neia prior to 1930, despite the ten per cent increase in requirements since then. The 1935 stamp sales totaling $41,087 approximated the high est on record at the local ouicc, but since Albany's office was rated as first class before, tho requirements have been increased. Business totaling $40,000 was the requirement previously, while now a total of $44,000 must be attained, the postmaster explained. Child Problems to Be Meeting Topic What can be done when mother and dad disagree over disciplining the children? Do all brothers and sisters quarrel? What can be done about an older brother who teases his little brother? These and similar questions will be discussed by Mrs. Maud M. Morse, extension specialist in child development and parent education, at the Veterans Memorial hall in Albany Friday, April 24, according to County Agent Floyd C. Mullen. Mrs. Morse will be one of the speakers at a Linn county confer ence on family living to be held on that day. According to the county agent Mrs. Morse has had unusual training for teaching parent education and child development, both from the practical and theoretical standpoints. She received her master's degree in child development at Oregon State college in 1933, preparing for the degree while her young son was in the college nursery school. A. A. I'. '.

By law, Governor Martin must find Fehl has had a record of good conduct and industry and shows "evidence of general reformation before he can be paroled.

Rape sowed with clover now and pastured during the summer will constitute a sou-conserving crop, and will entitle the former employing it to benefits of the new federal soil conservation program. County Agent Floyd C. Mullen said today. Inasmuch as this question had been puzzling the county agent as well as many farmers of this county, who have been using rape and clover ns a pasture crop, Mullen placed the matter before a regional conference of county agents ancnt the soil conservation program at Roseburg yesterday, receiving the affirmative answer. Accordingly farmers who wish to follow this procedure in accomplishing their 15 per cent acreage reduction may do so without forfeiting the compensation offered to those who divert land from soil-dcp)etng. o sojl-build-ing uses. Furthermore, the county agent said today, it was determined that English rye grass is also classified as a soil-conserving crop. This is not true, however, of other rye grasses, the agent explained, for the English variety is a perennial and the rest are annual crops. The entire soil conservation plan will be unfolded at a meeting of a temporary advisory committee composed of community representatives at the court house tonight at 8 o'clock. It will further be revealed at a series of community meetings, whose revised schedule is as follows: Shcdd, Thursday, April 16; Halsey, Friday, April 17; Lebanon, Saturday, April 18; Har-risburg, Monday, April 20; Crab-tree, Tuesday, April 21; Tangent, Wednesday, April 22; Scio, Thursday, April 23; Lyons, Friday, April 24; Albany, Saturday, April 25; Brownsville, Monday, April 27 and Sweet Home, Tuesday, April 28. Commenting upon the program County Agent Mullen said today that "this program furnishes an excellent opportunity to build up depletd soils. For Linn county this program encourages good farming and sou building practices." Drunken Driver Is Jailed and Fined Lebanon, April 15.

Crop Conditions Spotted As Freak Portland, Ore., April 15. Ore gon farmers, during the past week which has started quick growth, faced the growing season after one of the longest winters on record, with various prospects, some good some bad, according to a summary of weather and crop conditions issued today by the weather bureau for the week ending Tuesday. In some instances the heavy snowfall and assurance of ample water through the summer overcame the winter kill of crops. The report by Edward L. Wells, government meteorologist, follows; During the winter season of 1935-6 there were three marked cold periods. Two of these covered the entire stale: third was largely confined to the northern half, there was some winter killing of wheat, berry bushes, and young walnut trees. Little pasturage was available, heavy feeding of .slock was necessary, and t!iere was some loss of lambs ard calves. However, the rather Ju-ge snow storage in the mounrwis gives prospect of an augmented supply of water for irrigation.
