MONDAY, FEBRUARY 14, 1938 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS Dulcher Insists There Are Certain Facts Not Brought To Surface BY RODNEY DUTCHKil Courier News \VaKli|ii g (on (loiresiioiidnii ' t WASHINGTON. Feb. H. - Any understuiKling of American foreign i;#Yey'aiul naval expansion propo- .^ils requires knowledge of certain lifts whicli Roosevelt, Secretary Hull and Admiral Leahy aren't talking about, So much depends on Ihe result of Ihe administration's effort to "educate" the American people out of a pacifistic, isolationist antipathy toward any monkeying in Asiatic or European affairs that this educational effort temporarily may lie considered as the clilef item of such foreign policy as we Imve. Tlie campaign lias been going on for mouths through solemn official warnings of peril, persistent semiofficial assurances that the i^ir Eastern situation is "tense." maximum ballyhoo for Ihe p.inny and leEser Incidents, playing up of all naval movements and many other gestures designed for the pffoct of swaying public opinion. Power Politics A navy Is the most powerful arm of diplomacy and the American navy now is being used as exactly that. The State Department feels Us duty Is to play the old game of power politics. This means "bluffing Japan and other aggressively inili taristic nations—or. as the diplo- j /fnats put H. "using Ihe prestige and T influence of the United States lo ip international brigandage and prevent war." Also involved is a strong desire to "salvage" Ihe British Empire, backed by the moral and emotional bitterness of Roosevelt and Hull against "bandit", dictatorships and their fear of a 'distant day when Japan. Germany and Italy might rule the international roost and become a positive menace to the Unilett States. Congress, presumably a focal jxilnt of American public opinion, doesn't know how our foreign policy would shape up if Roosevelt and Hull were given a free hand—nnd fears the worst. Jnst, a Game Available signs indicate that. Roosevelt and Hull, once released from the public opinion hobble, would become very noisy and yell louder' than ever at the dictatorships, probably .with naval flourishes'. WhelKei- this would iiave the Sjesired effect of making Hitler. Jl,i!assolini and the Mikado behave Jeliemselves or whether it would be more likely to get the country into war is a matter of speculation. Roosevelt doesn't think the country will get into war. But he isn't sure. As long as Congress and public opinion insist on a mere continental defense policy, he knows that Ambassadors Saito, Suvich and DUET NOT TO WHET!

Over the week end tlie chief excmitlvc considered making the trip by plane. He had hopes of getting a reduction in interest rates on the proposed retirement loans. Advice from his physician led the governor to lay aside the plan. The move (.'rompted poljtical-spec- lator.s to rumor llittl the prospective special session of the legislature would be earlier. Had the cliiel executive gone to the financial centers, it was pointed out. it was likely that plans for calling the leral assembly would have delayed. Former Local Resident Dies of Accident Injuries Funeral services for K S. Voss, M-year-oId former resident of Bly- tlieville and late of St. Mary's.

Will Try Again To "Gag" Filibuster Former Pemiscot County Sheriff u relay Succumbs Sat- WASIIINOTON, Feb. 14. ,IUP>- Proponents of the anil-lynching llll began a new attempt today to invoke the senate clotiire rule for limitation of debate In an ef- fcrd to end Ihe southern senators' filibuster agalast Ihe measure. Senator Robert F, Wagner iDenv, N. Y.I. co-author w Sc-nalor Frederick Van Ntiys iDem Ind.l of the anti-lynchlng bill started circulation of the pctllloi which must be signed by l(i senators in order to .secure a vote or whether debate shall be limited. A two-thirds vote of the senate s required to limit debate. Tin M'oponenl.s made an attempt t nvoke the rule but I«H far shor of the required two-thirds, fall ng even lo get a majority in fa ror of clotiire. • Dieckhoff be cabling Tokio, Rome and Berlin tliat this government's position is nothing to worry about. The program for an 5800.000,000 naval expansion policy—an annual 20 per cent increase in expenditure —is part of tlie power politics game. It doesn't mean any new battleships within three or four years, so it hardly can be designed to meet any possible immediate crisis. Tlie existing navy is more than adequate for protection of the Alaska-Hawaii-Panama Canal Defense triangle and the Pacific j("-oast. Tlie navy isn't strong ^{•f-ough now lo make a stand anywhere west of Hawaii, and even the proposed increase wouldn't come anywhere near being enough to take any aggressive action in that direction. "Mr. Smith" in Ix>tidon Naturally. Admiral Leahy was somewhat handicapped by these points in his testimony before a congressional committee. But there is reason to believe that the most significant although not generally noted Leahy contribution was the admiral's assertion that the country's pacific naval line of defense now stretches out to Samoa. 2000 miles beyond Hawaii. This seems to make sense only II you lie it np with Roosevelt's secret pet idea of a joint British- American long distance blockade of Japan. No agreement or understanding with England lias ueen put 011° paper, but the Navy has j*wked out a plan—)ust to be kept iy for an emergency, mind you l>y which the United States would put 15 capital ships and their auxiliaries on the Alaska-Hawaii'Sa- moa line to link up with six British capital ships between Singapore nnd Borneo. Despite official denials that there i.s any plan to use the American fleet in conjunction with other forces, Capt. Royal E. Tngcrsoll, chief of the Navy war plans division. Is understood lo have discussed the blockade idea In London, where he was known as "Mr. Smith." The British anticipate possible trouble with Mussolini within three months. They want to know, first, whether Germany cnn be bought off or held off in lhat event, and. second, whether the United Slates can be depended on to take n strong stand in the Far East. If the second question is lo be answered /egatively they will make (lie best •rargain Ihey can with Japan: More tiitm 50.000 tons of old tin cans, pressed into 100-pound billets, have been imported from California by Japan since 1932. . CARUTHERSVILLE, Mo., Pel). 14.—Funeral services for Simeon Edward Juden, 71, former sheriff and presiding judge of the Peml- r>cct County Court, were held here yesterday afternoon at 2:30 o'clock at the First Methodist Church, the Rev.
