Single Copy, 3 Cents JAPS BRAND MONGOL CRISIS AS SERIOUS Strikes End As WPA Cuts Relief Rolls By the Associated Press With the strike of WPA workers | over the new 130-hour work month jj apparently ended, except in a few ^ cities, relief officials turned their attention today to enforcing other restrictions recently enacted by Congress. State administrators struggled with the problem of trimming 300,000 names off the WPA rolls by Aug. 1 to conform to a reduced budget. The law requires furloughs of those on the rolls continuously for 18 months, and Col. F. C. Harrington, the WPA commissioner, said such persons would constitute most of those dropped. In Washington headquarters. WPA chiefs studied means of eliminating geographical differentials in pay to preserve the present national average security wage of $52.20. Harrington said this would necessitate increases in the South and decreases in the North and We.st. He. predicted it would cause a "howl." Return of striking workers to tr/eir jobs did not end the attempt 01 labor leaders to obtain repeal of the 130-hour law in favor of Uic- old prevailing wage system. The law requires each employe to work 130 hours for his monthly security wage, thus lowering the hourly rate of some, craftsmen. William Green and other AFL leaders called on congressional leaders in Washington yesterday. Green . c aid the labor officials were neither encouraged nor discouraged by the reception of their suggestions, but most Congress members predicted the session would end with no change in the law. After conferring with Vice President Garner. Green said: "I gained the impression he felt there would be great difficulty in setting anything through Congress this session." The strike situation in Pennsylvania and Minnesota differed from that apparent in most other states. WPA officals said only 766 were absent from the 41 Philadelphia WPA projects, and 501 of the 15.725 WPA- workers were out in Pittsburgh. These figures were tenneu ridiculous by James L. McDevitt president of the Pennsylvania Federation of Labor. He said there would bi no disorder in the strike of AIL workers on WPA projects called yesterday in the state.

EX-POLITICIANS FACE CHARGES OF CONSPIRACY HATCH CHANGES BILL TO GAIN HOUSE BACKING BUFFALO (IP) -- A former grain scooper from Buffalo's waterfront first ward, who climbed to the top of the Democratic party in Erie County, and another leader, three times "head of the city's police department, face trial on charges of conspiracy to obstruct the enforcement of gambling laws. The two men. former County Chairman Frank J. Carr and former Police Commissioner James W. Higgins, were named in the conspiracy charge with eight other men in an indictment returned by an extraordinary grand jury, which for 20 months has been investigating city afafirs. Both pleaded innocent when they were arraigned yesterday before Special Supreme Court Justice Albert Conway and were released in $2.500 bail each. Also indicted on the conspiracy charge were three police officials and five other men: Captain James McDonald and Lieutenants George A. D. Knoll and Martin J. Mulligan, all police, and Julius Caputo, a Democratic state committeeman; William J. O'Connor. Matthew Dwyer. Frank A. Defusto and Frank Custodi.

Wed Girlhood Friend WASHINGTON (ff\ -- Senator Hatch and Representative Dempsey. New Mexico Democrats, disclosed today they ''had rewritten the former's bill" curtailing political activities of government em- ployes in order to "eliminate confusion" and gain support for the controversial measure. Dempsey said he would offer the substitute in the House on Tuesday, when the bill will be called up for debate. The revision would forbid any official in the executive branch of the government, with a few exceptions, using his official authority to influence an election. The new draft retains the principles of the bill as approved by the Senate. Hatch had contended that changes made by the House Judiciary Committee weakened the measure. A provision in the rewritten bill would place a ban on political management or political activity which. Hatch said, would prevent federal office holders from playing any part in national political conventions. Hatch said he believed the phrase "executive branch of the federal government" would include such agencies as the Social Security Board, the TVA and the RFC. The measure would exempt members of Congress and their staffs who. Dempsey said, should be placed in a category apart from administrative officials. LENDING BILL GAINS PRAISE OFMORGENTHAU WASHINGTON UP) -- Secretary Morgenthau praised the President's $2.800,000,000 lending bill today as a "real advance toward the goal of bringing our governmental expenditures within our receipts." Testifying before the Senate banking committee, the treasury head said he liked the idea of lending billions of dollars for self-liquidating projects. "It may well turn out to mark a transition point in the public finances," he declared, adding, "If we can substitute self-liquidating investments in place of outright government expenditures we shall have made a great step toward bridging the gap between revenues and expenditures. "This distinction between self- liquidating investments and non- recoverable expenditures is not merely a bookkeeping one, but is very soundly based." Navy Divers Postpone Squalus Damage Survey PORTSMOUTH. N. H. «P) -Navy officials said today divers probably would delay until Thursday descents to the deck of the ill-starred submarine Squalus in order the way to the cold, dark depths might be cleared to lessen the danger. Rushing preparatory \vork on the second attempt to life the $4.000.000 craft and its 26 dead, divers yesterday made 13 trips to pontoon No. 7 -- the one attached to the stern of the sunken vessel -and expect to work on the other two pontoons still under water as soon as No. 7 is brought up for repairs. No. 7. about 9o feet below the surface, hung evenly in the water and experts theorized that might mean "the Squalus was lying on an even keel and did not twist in her second disastrous plunge last Thursday. That will not be known oc-flnitclv. of course, until und'-r- sea workers get below to view the sunken craft. PETERBORO. N. H. i.-r. -- Mrs. Edward Mackcy announced today She engagement of her sistrr.

General Ironside, inspsctor-gi- 1 :.- oal of British overseas forces, also vas to confer with Foreign Miub- lei Col. Joseph Beck on politica!- n:ilitary aspects of the pre^vin KL-.nation in Eastern Europe The Polish press displayed a new surge of confidence that the visit of General Ironside, who flew here from England yesterday, would have a "decisive influence'' on the situation by serving as a new warning to Germany. The conservative newspaper Czas wrote that "General Ironside represents in a. way not only Britain but also France in that the purpose of his visit is to coordinate military strength. 1 ' Proud of Army Through all editorial comment ran a strong note of piide in thc- Polish arm which has had some 750.000 men on a war footing for almost four months during tension over German demands for annexation of the Free City of Danzig and a right-of-way through Pom- crze (the Polish corridor.) Polish Officials say the country could place 2.000.000 men between 18 and 35 in the field with an other 2,000,000 in reserve. It is an army which has been adapted to the particular problems of Polish defense and to Poland's national pocketbook. Predict No War LONDON (JP) -- A camier view of the international situation was reflected today in British circles and there was one outright forecast that "there will be no European war involving Britain this year." Wheat, a prime war commodity, fell to three shillings, seven and three-eights pence -- the lowest recorded price since 1592 -- about 50 cents a bushel. Market experts said big buyers apparently were holding off for still lower prices as new wheat poured into already overstocked granaries. Major Vernon Bartlett expressed somewhat the expanding British confidence with a question yesterday in the House of Commons -whether the national slogan, '"xe must be prepared" might not now be changed to "we are prepared" in view of the "satisfactory state of our present armament." Sir John Anderson. Lord Privy- Seal and Minister of Civilian Defense, answered, "we are proud of the response which has already been made to the call to national service" but "the time has not yet come when our_ efforts can be relaxed."

Judge ror term in Jail WASHINGTON i/Pi -- Despite growing hot-weather sentiment for adjournment, administration leaders in Congress took under consideration today three possible methods of reviving the controversial neutrality bill at this session. Senator Barkley. (D.. Ky.), the majority leader, told reporters that ! the discussions, while "very much in the study stage." were center- in? on these possibilities: i l. The Senate might be asked to ! discharge the foreign relations i committee from further responsibility for the bill, which then i would go directly to the floor for i debate. ! 2. The legislation might be at! t-ached to some other pending bill ; as a "rider." ; 3. Some member of the foreign · rela'.ions committee might be won i over to the administration view- 1 -point, thereby reversing the 12-11 vote by which the committee recent iv shrived neutrality legislation "until the next session. "We have not given up." Barkley asserted. "We still are hopeful that something can be done." ; Coinciding with his study of possible legislation moves. Barkley ap- 1 preached the Senate Republican leaders with the suggestion that they co over the whole neutrality 'question at a conference with President Rowcvclt and Democratic cliieftain?. , A presidential secretary said there were" no plans to receive, a congressional delegation, but added ; that any which mack known a wish ' 1-o come would find the White House door open. 1 Barkley said Senator McXary of Oregon, thr Republican leader, and Senator Austin of Vermont, as' . : -,iM.-ani.
