Washington, May !»-<*)—A suggestion that lake Superior Interests seeking to revive the shipbuilding industry at Superior, Wi*, organize a committee for investigation of the possibilities through federal departments was made by Representative Oehnnan (Pro-Wls). Reporting that a preliminary investigation indicates the results would be negative, Gehrman, to replies to an estimated 4,000 persons in the Superior area, said their project seemed unlikely to be successful. Gehrman conferred with both Admiral Leahy, retired from active duty and now chief of naval operations, and maritime commission authorities. Leahy, a former Ashland, Wis., resident, was unable to suggest a possible method but offered to discuss the proposal with any Wisconsin committee that desires to pursue the matter further, Gehrman said. The representative wrote that the maritime commission is not building ships of the type that could get through the channel to the ocean. Contracts for ship construction and repair work are let through competitive bids so even if the American Shipbuilding company of Cleveland, owner of the Superior dry docks, won a contract the federal government could not force the company to build the vessels at Superior, Gehrman explained. w> HwVlvWIwI Mr. and Mrs. Hugo Bauch visited in Park Falls Friday.

British Feared Ex-King Might do Harm by Talk BY DEWITT MACKENZIE New York, May 10—The Duke of Windsor has broadcast his appeal for peace from battle-scarred Verdun, and the British Empire still stands, despite all the fuss and feathers because of English fears that the ex-king might somehow do harm. The chief reaction thus far recorded is that the world's premier duke made a speech which, in the language of the London Daily Mail, was "unexceptionable" and "would resound in all the chancelleries of the world." How Premier Chamberlain and his official family feel hasn't been disclosed. They have maintained a discreet silence, ostensibly treating the matter as the duke's private affair. That, however, is a bit of stage-play. BeaMns for Worry The cabinet's concern was indicated clearly by the fact that neither the British Broadcasting corporation nor the Canadian Broad- casting corporation rebroadcast the address—the first the duke has delivered over the air since he abdicated the throne in 1936 to marry "the woman I love." Both these companies are controlled by their respective governments and wouldn't dream of eliminating the speech unless there were official intervention. And why should there be any worry over a talk by "Prince Charming." who not so long ago was the favorite young man of many lands? There are several reasons, but only one of them was named publicly in England before the broadcast This was that the speech was inopportune in view of the fact that the king and queen were enroute to Canada and the United States for the first visit ever paid to this hemisphere by a reigning British sovereign. Wouldn't Be Cricket The suggestion was that the duke was likely to take some of the frost- IRONWOOn I THEATRE U Toiight - Thirdly Friday Aid Sahirday From the four corners of the earth, men came to this wide- open Babylon of the West... to build, to ravage, to fight!

A JANOSIK Titles la ing off the king's gingerbread by intruding with the peace plea—sort of push his majesty into the background—which is precisely what the British government's wouldn't like to see. That. In toe view of the anxious watcher, wouldn't be cricket However, it appears that the duke communicated with hi* brother, the king, on the high-sea and obtained the lattert approval for the broadcast. That being the ease, Windsor's little venture into oratory wouldn't seem on the face of it to threaten a major crisis, but the affair really cuts a lot deeper than appears in a **iiff"«l glance. The duke, first as Prince of Wales and then as King Edward vm, was the idol of the empire. No prince ever mounted the throne with anything approaching the fine training which had been bestowed on him. Popularity Bvllt t> Thus it came about when he abdicated to marry American-born Wallis Warfield he thrust onto the shoulders of his unprepared brother a burden which would have broken many young men. The new king not only lacked his brother's extensive training but was handicapped in following such an outstanding personality and popular idol. Ever since then the government has been busy building the popularity of the new king. It has been busy, too. repairing the damage which Edward's abdication undoubtedly did to the prestige .jt the throne. Those are some of the reasons why the government doesn't wish the royal exile to clamber back into the limelight There is still another reason: despite his abdication and the fact that he lives abroad, the duke inevitably is associated with the throne. Just so long as he lives, anything he says or does publicly will be regarded by many people in that light Knows Herren ef War The British government doesn't want ex-kings running about delivering uncontrolled speeches, especially at a time of great crisis such as exists in Europe now. No cabinet minister ever makes a public pronouncement without the approval of the premier, and even the latter doesn't deliver speeches of moment without consulting his colleagues. At this precise Juncture even a peace speech by a great personage might do Incalculable damage if it contained in-chosen language. On* can understand the duke's desire for peace. He knows the horrors of war from first-hand experience, a* he served at the front for king add country. A good soldier, he was. too.
