McMurray, general manager of The Asbury Park Press, was reelected president of the New Jersey Press association at the 84th annual meeting at the Stacy Trent hotel yesterday. Only once before In the history of the association has a president served consecutive terms. James Kerney, publisher of the Trenton Times, held the office in 1936 and 1937. Other officers were also reelected. The removal of "a dozen atatesmen and leaders" would produce peace in Europe. William Hlllman, European manager of Collier's Weekly magazine, said in an address at the annual dinner last night. "The European war today is, in a very real sense, a war between a few men. If you had the right to wipe out a dozen men in Europe today you could bring peace to millions," he said. "And yet," he added, "It would be a mistake to think that you might thereby achieve anything more than a temporary peace or truce." Doien Not Identified He did not identify the men to whom he referred. Arthur T, Rabb, edlior of Editor & Publisher, said local newspapers lacked initiative and called on them to "revitalize their editorial policies, to become leaders of community thought."

Barbers Denied Boro Ordinance Red Bank Mayor Suggests Group Adopt Its Own Closing Regulations (Staff Correspondent) RED BANK Local barbers who wish to keep their shops open only during certain hours will have to do so on their own initiative and without a boro ordinance regulating the opening and closing hours of their establishments. At last night's boro council meeting Mayor Charles R. English informed spokesmen for some 20 barbers that the establishment of such a code would "set a bad precedent." Also highlighting the short session was the awarding to the American La France Motor company, the contract for supplying a new 750 gallon pumper to the Union Hose company. The apparatus will cost $9,347, less five percent if it is paid for in cash. Opinion Is Unchained Asked by Thomas Sharabba, T Mechanic street if "anything has been done yet" concerning an earlier request made by the barbers a month ago, the mayor replied ". . . there is no change In opinion among councilmen." "Then the barbers as a whole have nothing to say?" Sharabba asked. "The barbers can say all they like," the mayor replied. "The council Is interested in the community as a whole. Councilmen tell me that some of them have been approached by other lilies of business which do not want any such regulation. We sympathize with you but there Is nothing we can do." "Barber shops are unlike other businesses," Ralph Acquaro, 16 Mechanic street, told the mayor. "There are It out of 20 barbers who want the regulation and I think that is a majority and majority rules. You know 15 or 16 hours of labor a day is too much for a man," he said. "If you are so unanimous, why don't you regulate it yourselves?" Mayor English questioned.

"We are not likely to be diverted from the purpose for which we entered this war," Chamberlain said. BERLIN (P) Germans look forward to "a new European order" to come from the forging of a Rome-Berlin-Moscow Axis. After Reichsfuehrer Hitler returned to Berlin today from his historic meeting with Italy's Premier Mussolini In Brenner pass, authorized German sources commented to this effect: "We are determined to end this war victoriously and thereafter to make sure that Germany's essential life interests are secured for all time and never again threatened by plutocratic-democracies." They neither confirmed nor denied previous" Intimations that a Russian-Italian accord, extending the Rome-Berlin Axis, was impending; but in response to one question the sources left no doubt that they believed peace would be preserved in the Balkans. Hitler received an ovation from a large crowd which gathered hurriedly as the train pulled in. Field Marshal Hermann Wilhelm Goerlng headed the welcoming officials.
