UP) A drastic purge of the great soviet Russian youth organization Komsomol was revealed today with the removal of its leader, Alexander Kosarieff, and four other high officials. They were accused of protecting morally corrupt, drunken and traitorous elements within Komsomol, from the ranks of which the communist party recruits new members. - " - Komsomol was purged, some 14 months ago when live secretaries and eight other officials were ousted and Kosarieff was sternly rebuked and warned to put his organization in order. That reorganization continued until March, 1938, when a halt was called and "over-vigilance" was blamed for the unjustified expulsion of thousands of members. Komsomol's membership in 1935 was 6,000,000. In recent weeks sharp criticism of Komsomol conditions began appearing in the soviet press. Laxity in leadership was charged. A resolution by the Komsomol central committee said Kosarieff and the others were removed for: 1. "Ruthless violation of internal democracy of Komsomol secretaries, who remained deaf and dumb toward all warnings of ordinary workers. j i. for a nearness, Dureaucrauc and hostile attitude toward honest workers. 3. "For protecting morally corrupt, drunken and hostile elements in Komsomol and concealing traitorous elements." Apostolic Delegate to London Appointed Vatican City, ov. 23.

The Italian press published reports from London that the Vatican's action was believed to be a move seeking British support in the church's conflict with Germany over the treatment of German Catholics. Vatican officials declined to comment on this point. COLLECTION OF TAXES ON SOME ITEMS IS UP Washington, Nov. 23.

Normally there is little aa tivity in the stockyards on Fridays and Saturdays. The spokesmen said the big pack- ; ers have large quantities of dressed beef and pork in the coolers and could bring in dressed meat from their branch plants in other cities. Such plants also could increase their receipts of "direct" livestock which goes directly from rural concentration points to the plants, in contrast to animals bought and sold by commission men in the yards. Commission men ordered fanners and country correspondents to halt livestock shipments pending settlement of the strike. However, an estimated 10,000 head were already en-route to the yards. Unionists Indicated commission men would be permitted to feed and water the animals in the pens but would not be allowed to drive them to the plants.

" ' 5d OFFICIALS FAVOR PLAN OF UNIONS Say Only Barrier to Industrial Peace Is Opposition to Unionism New York, Nov. 23. (V-The only barrier to industrial peace, in the belief of two members of President Roosevelt's commission on industrial relations, is the failure of industry to recognize that it must not resist unionization.

Davis, former deputy NRA administrator, told a trade and commerce bar ' association dinner last night elimination of American industry's fight against unions would probably establish workable industrial relations here, such as now exist in Great Britain and Sweden. pavis said that neither the British nor Swedish system was supplemented with legislation similar to the Wagner act because both nations had overcome the growing pains through which America was passing. Mrs. Rosenberg said collective bargaining necessitated a genuine desire for solution of a problem.

Daladier Awaits Chamberlain, Halifax for Treaty Conference PROGRAMS PRESSED Germans Say No Power on Earth Can Stop Campaign Against Jews By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS An official French announcement that France and Germany have agreed to sign a pact renouncing war against each other coincided today with the Journey of British leaders to Paris presumably to strengthen military ties between Britain and France. i An official spokesman said signature of the Franco-German antiwar accord, fruit of negotiation since the Munich conference of September 29, was expected soon. Awaits Visitors ; Meanwhile Premier Daladier. beset with oposition to his economic program and a soreadinir wave of strikes, awaited the arrival of Prime Minister Chamberlain and Foreign Secretary Viscount Halifax of Britain. There was a strong belief their visit would result in forging the Anglo-French mutual assistance pact into a virtual military alliance through rewriting of the present agreement. Though some French and British sentiment was that the nazi anti-Jewish campaign was a barrier to reaching a full appeasement agreement with Adolph Hitler, Germany went ahead with her program bv levying an assessment of 20 percent on Jewish fortunes exceeding $2,000 to pay the (400.000,000 fine for the assassination -of .-Ernst voin Rath, Paris embassy secretary, by a Jew. The assessment was decreed an the German propaganda machine, in full . swing, warned no mercy would be shown in writing "the last chapter, of the Jewish question." Propaganda Minister Goebbels last night told 2,000 propaganda workers that the nazis would pursue their course until Jews are driven from German life. Follow Nazi Lead The Free City of Danzig followed Germany's lead decreeing "purity of blood" laws like Hitler's Nuernberg racial laws of 1935. Jews wero forbidden public office and, while retaining citizenship, were barred from voting on questions of state administration. In Britain Jewish aid organizations insisted speed was the prime necessity of plans for aiding Jews in Germany. Dissatisfaction was expressed with Chamberlain's proposal to settle Jews in Tanganyika, northern Rhodesia and British Guiana since It was feared delays would be entailed. Daladier, working to get his foreign policy In running order before he faces parliament December 8, had new difficulties to meet as thousands of striking metal workers around Valenciennes occupied factories in protest against Daladier'a decree laws which lengthen working hours and raise taxes. Berlin, Nov. 23 P) The German trovernment ordered a levy of 20 percent of Jewish fortunes exceeding $2,000 today to pay the $400. 000 000 fine imposed for the assassination of Ernst vom Rath. Paris embassy secretary, by a Jewish boy.
