CANANDAIGUA, N. Y., WEDNESDAY, JULY 19, 1939. Single Copy, 3 FDR DROPS NEUTRALITY REVISION DEMAND WPA Lacks Powers to Restore Cut WASHINGTON (IP) -- Attorney General Murphy today ordered a federal grand jury investigation of the Minneapolis WPA strike situation. He ordered it following an investigation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Victor E. Anderson, United States district attorney at St. Paul, Minn., was directed to convene the grand jury. (By The Associated Press) The 130-hour work month for WPA employes, in President Roosevelt's opinion, can be changed only by an act of Congress revising the new relief law. Mr. Roosevelt told reporters in Washington yesterday it was his off-hand judgment that except Iran unusual emergency WPA Commissioner Harrington has no authority to waive the requirement, which caused widespread strikes of skilled relief workers last week. j AFL leaders had argued that the law gava Harrington authority to restore the prevailing hourly wage scale for skilled workers. Harrington reported that 32.5821 workers had been dismissed f o r ! staying away from their jobs five ! days during the walkouts. He said i the number on strike yesterday was j 26,511 or fewer than one-third the · number out five days previously. I The Workers Alliance, a union of j WPA employes, went ahead, however, with its plans for a nationwide protest tomorrow against the j new law. David Lasser. president,] said there would be a general stop-1 page of work and parades in many j cities. i Lasser said also that the Alliance members now on strike would re-; turn to work provided those who, had been dismissed were reinstated. | In Minneapolis, scene of violence j in connection with the WPA strikes j there appeared a division of opinion among the workers on the question of returning to their jobs. Chester Watson, state president of the Workers Alliance, said, "the strike will go on." White collar workers, however, appealed to Gov.. Harold Stassen of Minnesota to re- I open the projects closed last week after Mayor George E. Leach said police could not be responsible for maintaining order at the projects. Mayor Leach received word from j WPA headquarters in Washington j yesterday that policing the projects | was the city's responsibility and; that WPA operations would be sus- j pended where violence threatened. | In Philadelphia, the AFL bui.ti- ing trades council ordered an extension of the walkout of union employes to include those on all government-financed jobs. Navy Divers Clear Debrfe From Squalus PORTSMOUTH. N. H. -- Deciding to leave the original salvage j plan virtually unchanged, except to increase the number of pontoons from seven to 10. the navy ordered divers down today to speed the wort: of clearing "debris" for the j nest effort to raise the ill-fated submarine Sq«al«s and her 26 dead. The "Beard of Stra!?!ry" -- .' dozrn officers and experts -- reached the decision on salvapc plans j last, night after hearing two divers j report.'that the sunken $-3,000.000: craft lay practically on an even keel and apparently in pood condition despite the second dis»stro«s : plunpe which ended Ihr first lifting effort last Thursday. i Rear Admiral Cyrus W.

Here the flier gets the first piece of cake from a piate held by his bride at the reception which followed the wedding in San Antonio, Texas. WORLD'S FAIR FIRES MANY IN ECONOMY MOVE NEW YORK (/Pi --The New York World's Fair has dismissed several hundred employes -- including members of its colorfully clad information cops -- in an economy move dictated by failure of attendance to come up to expectations. Officials of the S155.000.000 enterprise, the largest exposition in history, also are offering bargain day tickets this week-end and are considering reducing the admission fee from 75 to 50 cents. The Fair declined to announce the exact number of workers dismissed, but the information service cut was put unofficially at 250. A further cut of between 500 and 500 in the operations personnel hs.;; been made, the New York Times said. President Grover Whalen said the staff reduction was in line with budget requirements ami would not diminish service to visitors. A skeleton staff of 50 was retained in the information department. '/We must adhere to good business principles and keep our staff within the limitations . of a businesslike budget." Whalen .-aid in explaining the reductions. Officials declined comment on reports that 1.000 or more of the Fair's 7.000 employes would be left out. Most of the dismissed information officers were college men selected from 5.000 applicants. They reccived $30 n week and were granted a week's dismissal pay. A group of 30 or more, protesting the loss of their jobs, yanked the cold braid from their resplendent blue and yellow uniforms yesterday and waded 100 yards tlroUsr. a 5w pool on the Fair's main avenue, in a veiling, hooting shirt-J^il parade. Visitors applauded -- thinking it. part of the .show. Federal, State Probe Centers .On Louisiana Large Oil Industry NEW ORLEANS f/P;--Louisiana's $100.000,000 a year oil business, fourth largest of any state, was spotlighted . today in broadening federal and state inquiries. A special investigator sent here from Washington, continued his "hot oil" study as State Treasurer A. P. Tugwell released a statement saying most drillers had to purchase machinery and supplies through a Houston. Tex., firm which got a 10 per cent commission. The investigator was Clifford Howland. sent here by Secretary of Interior Harold Ickes. He left New Orleans, reportedly tc bt t ;i:i im inquiry in Shreveport. 25 CONVICTED IN BUFFALO'S AFFAIRS PROBE Official Urges Czechs To Follow German Aims PRAGUE r/pi -- Dreams of resurrection of the old Czech Republic received new official discouragement today as George Havelka. minister of transportation of the protectorate government, urged his Czech Co-Nationals to adapt themselves to German aims rather than nourish "unfounded hope*-" Havelka spoke over the radio -in a nationwide appeal -- to combat, a widespread whinnering campaign which has accused the Bohemia- Moravia- protectorate government of failing: to defend rights oi Czechs against. Germans energetically encuyh. Czech political circles interpreted HavcJka's appeal to Mipport the "realistically thinking" protectorate government a:- another attempt of Czech officials workinc under German authority to unite the population ill cooperatior with the Reich. BUFFALO (fi -- An extraordinary Grand Jury investigation of Buffalo City affairs today had added two convictions to bring the total to 25 convictions out of 68 persons or corporations indicted ouriiig a 20-months inquiry.

These advices said a big scale battle was in progress in Southeastern Shansi province, scene of intermittent hostilities since the first weeks of the war. The Chinese reported that their foe had lost 7,000 men there in the past fortnight. On the other front, about 100 miles west of Hankow, the Chinese reported they were pushing the invaders back from the Han river which they had been trying to cross since a few weeks after the Oct. 26 fall of Hankow. The Japanese drive westward through Hupeh province had been directed at Shasi and Ichang, important mid-Yangtze ports upriver from Hankow. The Shansi campaign has been aimed at various times at crossings of the Yellow river southward into Honan province for a junction with forces along the Lunghai railway and westward for an invasion of Shansi province. Charge British Attack It was impossible to confirm the latest Chinese reports but it had long been apparent that the Japanese were stalled in Shansi and Hupeh. The latest development in Japanese -. British friction in China-a Japanese charge that a (British soldier on the outskirts of Shanghai bayonetted a Chinese railway crossing employe -- brought the j threat of an anti--British boycott 1 from the Japanese operators of the i war - commandeered Central China : Railways. They said they might I refuse 'railway facilities to Britons ! and British goods. i Japanese military authorities ] joined railway officials in accus- ] ing the soldier of "lunging at and : stabbing without provocation our I employe, which is evidence of cal! lous bad faith'' and '"constitutes, in effect, interference with the ' duties of those engaged in con- i strutting the new order in East i Asia."' j The British military called the ! charges "utter rubbish." TsklTsk! Nazis Now Condemn Fashions In Feminine Hat Styles BERLIN /P) -- Das Schwarze Korps. organ of the elite S. S. Blackshirt Guards, poured scorn today on women's styles, especially in hats, as a wasteful "foreign swindle." With an apology for invading the field of feminine fashion magazines, Das Schwarze Korps declared: "German women should learn that one puts a dress aside when it is worn out or no longer is suited to her age -- not when it becomes 'out of fashion.' " The publication found particularly distasteful "advertising magicians" who convince women that to be beautiful they have to obtain "models being ballyhooed right now." This leads not only to a j change in mode four times a year, ' but also between seasons, it observed. "As a result they put a Brazilian plover or an Australian miniature stork on some kind of faeer pad and sell this desecration of nature as the 'last word' of the hat making art at outrageous nrices."

WASHINGTON (JP)--A White House aide said today that President Roosevelt would have to call a special session of Congress to act on neutrality legislation should a crisis develop in Europe after adjournment. The statement came from Stephen Early, Mr. Roosevelt's press secretary. When asked whether the President was going to take the neutrality issue to the ! country Early replied: ] "I'm certain of one thing:, that from the time Congress adjourns until it reconvenes in January the President will pray as never before in all his life that there will be no new crisis in Europe.' 1 WASHINGTON UP) -- Piesident Roosevelt, reluctantly accepting the advice of Senate leadere to abandon. iiis demand for neutrality icvisioc at this session, was represented today as prepared to take his fight for repeal of the arms embargo to the country.

HATCH ISSUE HEADED FOR HOUSE BATTLE WASfflNGTON (jp) -- Between those who think it doesn't go far enough and those who don't want it to go anywhere at all. the revised Hatch anti-palitics bill is headed for peppery oratory in the House tomorrow. Originally, the measure prohibited all federal officials, save those in certain policy making posts, from taking part in political activities. Some members of Congress argued^ tuat it was so drastic as to prevent" them from advocating their own reelection and would forbid their office employes from working in their campaigns. The House Judiciary Committee, however, modified the bill/ Critics of that action say it would allow federal officials, including those who deal with relief, to participate in the activities of a political party. The legislation grows in part out of the long inquiry into election practices made last year by the Senate campaign expenditures committee. It heard scores of complaints against the uses that politicians in several states had made of federal funds and employes. Many of the practices condemned by the committee would be outlawed by the Hatch bill. The measure, already approved by the Senate, forbids coercion or intimidation to prevent a person from voting for whom he pleases. It makes unlawful the use of cf ficial authority by any person in an administrative position in any federal agency to interfere with or afTcot the clecuon of a candidate for federal office. gram.
