ALDRICH HITS GOVERNMENT COMPETITION Mickey in Court New York Banker Puts Share of Slump Blame on Administration BUSINESS ATTACKS BITTERLY ASSAILED Pittsburgh Industrialist Says Mistakes Must Be Rectified Washington, Jan. 14 (/P)— A banker and an industrial leader told the Senate unemployment committee today that government could not escape a share of the blame for the business recession. Wiuthrop W. Aldrich, chairman of the board of the Chase National Bank of New York, told the committee that government's most serious mistake was in offering direct competition to the utilities, thus destroying confidence of investors in the utilities' securities and cutting their purchases from the durable goods Industries. J. D. A. Morrow of Pittsburgh, president of the Pittsburgh Coal Company, asserted bluntly that "this depression was made In Washington." He declared it could he cured "by frank acknowledgment that some mistakes had been made," and by rectification of the mistakes. It the threat of competition by the government is removed, the utilities are "simply bursting to go ahead." Aldrich said. Their activities would provide a needed impetus to all business because ot attendant capital goods expenditures, he ob- seived. "Inflammatory statements" against business by "members of fhe government" have been one of the most unfortunate aspects of the slump, Aldrich declared. He agreed with Senator Murray (D-Mont) that if there is a "constant flow of propaganda, to discredit the Administration," as Murray asserted, it ought In be stopped. The banker declared that, in his opinion, some Administration supporters had failed to distinguish between business men guilty of "improper practices" and "the great mass of business men" who desired to correct abuses. "I don't think that business should accuse government, or government should accuse business. We would be much better off if both sides desisted," Aldrich said. He blamed lack ot confidence on the part of Investors to high income taxes, the capital gains tax and the undistributed surplus tax. an well as to "uncertainty as to the government's future policies." "The plain trouble is lack of confidence on the part of the public In the consistency ot the policies of government," Aldrich added. ROAMER IS ARRESTED Paris, Jan. 14 (/P)—A man found roaming in a corridor of the Hotel Meurlca, just below the suite occupied by the Duke and Duchess of Windsor, today was arrested by police who said he was a convicted thiet under orders of expulsion from Prance. At headquarters police said he was identified as Olaf Karlson, 56, a Swede, convicted ot theft in 1934 and ordered expelled the following year. Walt Disney Mickey Mouse himself appears in Los Angeles court in the person of Walt Disney, creator of Ihe popular figure, to answer charges of John P. Wade, writer and actor, that one ot Disney's animated car toons was taken from a scenario submitted by Wade. Disney contends the idea in the questionable cartoon was his own. FDR Would Abolish Holding Companies Business World Startled by Emphatic Call by President for Abolition of Concerns—Views Given at Press Conference Washington, Jnn. 14, (#>).—President, Koosevelt startled the business world today with an emphatic call tor Hie abolition ot holding companies in all lines uf industry and finance. lie told liis semi-weekly press conference in unmistakable terms that his ultimate aim was tbc elimination of such concerns nut only among the power utilities, as now partially provided by law, but in banking and other business and industrial fields. Wall Street frankly was amazed. Experts on corporation finance were quick to say that more than ball" the companies whoso securities are widely held are holding companies, In some degree at least. Of the latter, they said, many actually are operating companies owning outright control of holding company to which Mr. Roosevelt has objected in the past In the utilities Held. Complex Question So complex was the question posed by tbe President, in fact, that many financial men said they thought there might he (inalilica- tions which Mr. Roosevelt had not mentioned at his press conference. Regarding the President's criticism of holding companies in the banking Held, and his attack upon 'remote control" of local banks, lliey estimated that torn- companies Mintrol banks having- assets of lenrly ?S,OuO,000;OuO. When or how Mr. Roosevelt proposed to carry out bis idea was left in conjecture. Some students ot political events ihougbt he might touch upon the subject in his forthcoming message to Congress on "harmful" business practices. Others felt specific proposals would not be advanced that soon. The message on business practices may be expected in about 10 days, the President has indicted. " Asked if he intended to use the iaxing power, the President replied that he had not arrived at that point yet. However, he said, there were various ways ot doing away with holding companies without forcing them Into bankruptcy. Mr. Roosevelt's views were given ... connection with a detailed analysis, requested by reporters, of a memorandum left with him No- ANOTHER PROTEST IS MADE TO JAPAN U. S. Charges Violation of Property Rights in China Washington, Jan. 11 (/P)—The United States has protested to Japan once more against violation of American property rights in China. The Slate Department announced today that Consul John M. Allison at Nanking had notified the Japanese embassy in Nanking that Japanese soldiers continued to enter American property there and remove goods and employes ot American, institutions, despite a previous American protest. Allison cabled that the soldiers did this without giving notice of, or reasons for, their action. Allison, who was consul at Tsin- an and went to Nanking to take charge of the embassy after the Japanese occupied China's capital, cabled last, week that there hnd been consierahln looting of American properly. Tim Chinese servant of Ihe third secretary, Douglas Jenkins, was killed, he said. The employes of American institutions mentioned in Allison's dispatch today were believed to be Chinese. The American property referred to lies outside the embassy compound. Informed persons said condi- tion's''in China, and the status of 15,000 Japanese at Davao, Philippine Islands, probably would be the subjects of a report to the President by Paul V. McNutt, American High Commissioner for the Philippines when be returns to this country in February.

When three robbers entered today she did the same—but saved the bank $30,000 in cash. An alarm was installed in the room after the other holdup. She sounded it today, locking the bank's main vault and tetters' safes. The men obtained only the $4,000 on the counter, and fled. "1 wasn't scared this time," said the plump stenographer. "1 kept cool and knew what to do—1 was glad to do it." The trio attempted to force Manager Ralph Reitsman to open the vault. After he told them It was protected by a time lock, they were coqtent with the $4,000.

Young of General Electric, Charles W. Taussig of American Molasses, A. A. Berle, a former Administration advisor, and John L. Lewis and Philip Murray of the C. I. 0.' .

"The discussions will be continued at the President r dlSC New°newsmen peppered the group with questions, 1mt beyond au additional statement from Lewis that the conference covered a wide • range ami "endeavored to deal with the realities of the situation," they • received no amplification. ' \mong the questions asked, an important one was whether In" group presented a specific proposal to the President. This one Lew* and liis colleagues declined to answer. The meeting followed one early this week in which the President conferred with Alfred P. Sloan, Jr.. chairman of General Motors: E. T.

Walts, who is critic for the New York Herald Tribune, saw the play, didn't like it and said so in print. So, encountering Watts at din- time last night, Kirkland clipped him on the law, but he made the error of choosing the Artists and Writers Restaurant for his arena. The place seemed to seethe with Walts' partisans when the critic dropped to his knee. Accounts are that Kirkland caught his share of flying fists. In the end, Kirkland and Watts, once friends at Columbia University, sat down to talk it out. The playwright said he had been galled all day by reviews of the play on which he worked nine months. Watts reiterated his dislike for the drama, -which he called in his review "a sly and disagreeable chronicle ot an unappetizing lot ot unpleasant people with funny dialects."
