Bankers and Industrialists Assail Ideas Because Of Pessimism New York, Jan. 14. (AP)—Technocracy's head man, Howard Scott; had stirred up a new wave of controversy I today as a result of his first fortaal discussion of the subject with some leading bankers and Industrialists. The New York Times said a survey of the audience which heard him last night at a society.of arts and sciences dinner showed that in general his hearers expressed skepticism, as well as disappointment at what they regarded as a confused presentation. Scott had said: That i^ial conditions would get worse and worse if present trends continued, and that unemployment would hicrease hi this country "to 20 million within 18 months';' unless steps were taken; i Thit "not one single political outstanding figure or fhiancial figure has come forward with any proposal! that has one lota of usefulness I in dealing" with present day conditioils;" Democracy Inadequate. That "there is nothing inherent in democracy, or the price system, that can deal with the problems in hand;'' That "the more energy we consume per capita, the more is a changei In control necessitated;" That America and Russia both have an "obsolete price system;" That "technocracy has undoubtedly caused the strangest alignment in history"—the debt merchant and the communist being "down In the mud of the last ditch, fighting shoulder to shoulder in defenscf of a system of advantage." The bankers, whom Scott referred to as "debt merchants." heard him calmly. Although Scott denied technocracy was trying to say "there Is going to l>e chaos or there is go- |<ing to be doom," Jefferson Selig- GRANGE HEADS INTO NEW JOBS Klink Heads Star Valley Organization for Third Straight Time Thirteen officer^ were installed to guide the course of the Star Valley Grange when it met at Prairie Dell school house last night, Friday the thirteenth. G. F. Klink, business manager^f the state Grange, was reelected master for the third consecutive time, bringing to a total of six the number of years in which he has served in that capacity. Present as the installing officer was Dan James, overseer of the state organization, who was assisted by Mrs. Harold Baker, Mrs. C. K. McHenry, and Kenneth McHenry. Those installed besides Mr. Klink: Harold Baker, overseer; Mrs, M. S. McHenry, lecturer; Ray Stickle, chaplain; R. E. McHenry, steward!; Courtney Kauffman, assistant stewj- ard; Miss Elizabeth Johnson, lady .Assistant steward; Henry Walter, secretary; Roy Kauffman, treasiu-- er; B. N. Baker, gatekeeper; Mrs. C. H. Baker, Mrs. Klink, and Mrs. Ray Stickle, the three graces. Committee appointments were announced today as follows: Legislative: J. C. Smith, chairman, Robert Hamm and Raymond Baker.

Entertainment: Mrs. R. E. Kauffman, Mrs. C. H. Baker, and Mrs. B. N. Baker. The program included short addresses by Mr. James, who spoke on Grange work, and by Mr. Smith who gave the legislative committee's report on the bill now before the agriculture conunittee of the house of representatives which urges, a tax on all butterfat substitutes not produced within the continental limits of the United States—a bill which was endorsed by the Star Valley Grange some time ago. Music from an orchestra composed of Mr. and Mrs. Klink, Mr. and Mrs. R. E. McHenry, and C. K. McHenry drew praise from Mr. James who has visited many of the Granges over the state. He said it was exceptionally good for an organization the size of the Star Valley Grange. OLD SCOUT TO TALK Col. 3. H. Andrews of Hnmboldt to Piniih Hit for John Blood Tiie speaker regularly scheduled for Current Topics next Monday evening was Mr. John Blood, of Wichita, who was goingto talk about "The Place of the Bus and Truck In Modern Transportation." Mr. Blood, however, has just called the President of Current Topics by long distance, and Informed him that on account of a measure in which he is vitally interested coming up in the Legislature Monday afternoon'It will be wholly impossible for him l« meet his lola engagement. Anticipating the possibility, always present, that some speaker engaged for Topics might fail at the moment, as has happened in this case, the president of the club arranged some weeks ago with Col. J. H. Andrews, of Humboldt, to come in as a pinch hitter whenever called. Upon hearing that Mr. Blood could not come, therefore. Mr. Scott called Col. Andrews, told him the pinch had come, and drafted him for next Monday. The draft has been honored and the Colonel will be on hand. Col. J, H. Andrews is an old timer at Humboldt and imder the pen name of "The Scout" he has been contributing a deUghtful column to the Humboldt Union for several years. His hobby is the stage. Somebody told the Register that he goes to Kansas City every week during the season to see the big plays. Also somebody told the Register that hie Is no slouch of an actor himself and that he does some of the Shakespeare characters in great style. The Register doesn't know just what Mr. Andrews will do or say, but it doubtless will be along the Une of com'- ment on sbme of the great actors he has seen and of impersonations of one sort or another. Anyway It is siu-e to be Interesting and there should be a fine crowd out to compliment our neighbor. At the KeUey Hotel, 6:15 next Monday evening.- sterling Refuses Invitation.

Ferguson. found Scott's views "rather gloomy." Views Rather Gloomy. "It is a great thing to' think about," he said. "I have great respect for Mr. Scott but I think his views are rather gloomy. He seems to feel the.eiid of the world is coming. His opinions leave me bewildered. Technocracy offers a lucrative "field for thought and speculation: it embraces many fields, philosophy. Sociology and economics." , Prank A. Vanderlip, former president of the National City bank, found the findings of technocracy "a pretty true picture." He said, however, he would reserve judgment until more official material was published. i Lionel D. Edie, economist, complained criticism of tischnocracy was virtually impossible because it was "difficult to know when a man really represented technocracy—there are too many unofficial spokesmen for the "White, House.'" Gano Dunn, president of the J. G. White Engineering corporation, said; Fire from Engineer. "I resent the claims to science and engineering made by the: technocrats when their methods are so distinctly contrary to the methods of science and engineering. Mr. Scott has Just said, 'we do not ;bother with critics," a statement which no man who is a scientist or an engineer could ever make." One well known banker remarked bitterly that Mr. Scott "certainly was selling America short." WasWngton, Jaii. 14.

Wichita, Jan. 14, (AP.)—Dont neglect your personality, girls, for odds are more than 5 to 1 that you will attain a greater measure of success if this attribute is adequately developed than you will if you depend only upon the brains in your pretty little heads. Hark to Dr. H. W. Mikesell, head of the psychology department at the University of Wichita. "Glamorous personality girls are more likely to be successful than girls with more brains and less personality. Psychology has determined by actual experiment that success depends 85 per cent upon personality and only 15 per cent upon brains. "In spite of this fact, modem colleges everywhere place high emphasis upon Intelligence and little" strfess upon development bf personality." iOne of the greatest tragedies of life, the psychologist believes, is the fkct that the majority of people first begin: to know themselves at the age of 40 or 45. "Before that time they live in an unreal atmosphere," he said. BALDWIN SUCCESSOR IS SEEN Ray Staley Favored as Next Superintendent at Haskelf. Kansas City, Jan. 14. (AP)—Appointment of Ray E.

BOTH PARTIES JOIN AGAINST THE mmm Robinson and Bingham in Speeches Urging Veto Be Overridden NO NEW ARGUMENTS Philippine Independence Still an Old Story, Senators Say Washington, Jan. 14! (AP)—A Republican and a Democrat m^e common cause of Philippine independence in urging the senate today to override the objections of President Hoover and grant the islands freedom. ! Hardly had Senator Robinson of Arkansas, the Democratic leader, finished an appeal for the senate to pass the independence, measure over the presidential vieto before Senator Bingham of (Connecticut, a Republican, was presenting a similar argument. Both contended the president had presented no facts that would warrant the senate in sustaining the veto. The measure was taken up im- expectedly after a tentative agreement had been made that It should not,be apted upon until Monday. The house overrode the veto yesterday. Accepted by Both Robirison said "it has been accepted by both political parties that we should as' soon as practicable and just; recognize and grant independence to the islands." "With the passing of the years and the acquisition of property in the Islands by Americans the situation has grown more and more complicated from the practical viewpoint," he continued. "I think nearly all will agree that that condition will, be manifest until it becomes apparent that the United States isgolng to keep faith with its people and espedlally those of the Philippines and recognize their Independence. "It wlU be recalled that when the measure was before the senate it was discussed at great = length. I point out now to the senators that everyi objection raised by the president in his Veto, message was the subject of discussion in the senate as wsU as In senate committees, and during the last "session of the senate, when- maay^dayv-^m'ft -'dBTOted to the bill's consideration. A Family Skeleton. "It follows that if the veto will be sustained and the vexing question of the. relation of the Philippine Lslands .to the United States be perpetuated In American politics, that the same issues will again rise to vex and perplex us. "We'll have to discuss them again and decide. It is my judgment that the action of the senate and house would, differ in no mateflal way from that taken in the bill passed, to sustain the honor 1 of this government and the glory of our flag. Referring to the president's statement that freedom now would place the islands in jeopardy of extemal assault, Robinson said the bill provided for treaties with foreign nations to perpetuate their neutralization. He added there is a further pro-, vision that the United States shall maintain its military and naval bases there even after the .teri-year period preceding complete withdrawal of American sovereignty. "The president's view Is influenced and controlled by the opinion of his secretary of war," he said. Binrham With Robinson. Taking tho floor as Senator Robinson concluded. Senator Bingham observed tliat "the president has sent a long and forceful messaie" "As the senator from Arkansas stated, however," he continued, "there is nothing new in the message ini the way of argument or statement of fact" The jlll, herald, represented a cdmpromise beween those who favored Immediate Independence and those -who wished it granted after a 25 or 30 year period. As the bill now stands, he added, "our Interests In the Far East have been protected. "If the bill passes and a treaty, of neutralization is carried out as provided by congress then the Phil- ippltiies will be in a stronger position than they are now because the right of those people to maintain a peaceful government will be guaranteed not only by the United States but by the nation's signing the treaty." Bingham said'parts of the president's v^to message were "misleading" and unfair. STUDENT SMOKERS LEAD IN SCHOLARSHIP Omaha, Neb., Jan. 14. CAP)— Crelghton university students who smoke had their inning today when a test showed, that as a class, they were better scholastlcally than the nonsmokers. Furthermore, Dr. Thomas L.

CHINA RISES TO STOP INVASION Boycott Also Strengthened to Put All Pressure On Japanese Shanghai, Jan. 14. (AP)—Chinese determination to oppose the Japanese at Shanhailcwan, hi Manchuria or Jehol or anywhere else Where the Japanese may undertake an alleged invasion of China appeared sharply Increasing today. This was indicated by recent Chinese actions and reports appearing in the Chinese press. While , the Japanese economic league in Tokyo was reported to have called upon the international chamber of commerce, which will meet In Vienna,- to denounce the boycotting bf one nation's goods by another, the greater Shanghai {(Chamber of conunerce sou<5ht to revive the Chinese boycott of!

CSrcularizlng all the commercial and industrial guilds, the chamber stated the boycott has been allowed to relax and urged a nationwide tightening of it. (The Chinese boycott against Japan was urged after the Japanese occupation of Manchuria began in September, 1931, and it was a reason given by Japanese; authorities for the sending of fSapaflwef" trtwps to Shanghai last Friday.) i The chamber statement said: "There are only two ways (3hina can oppose japan: ;They are by boycott and guerilla warfare. Shanghai, being the nation's leading commercial .city, should set the example by intensifying the boyc<ri.t and simultaneously assisting Man-; churian volunteers." Meanwhile the Chinese public in Nanking launched a campaign ; to "reduce food bills 20 per cent, sending the saving to the forces opposing the Japanese." Leaders of the movement said large amounts would be raised for the Chinese soldiers. More Troops Reported. CHilnese and Manchurian advices, hi the meantime, continued to maintain that formidable Japanese forces were massing on the eastT em Jehol Ijorder and that a portion aheady had entered the province and was marching on Ling- yuan, about 100 ri]»lles north of Je­ hol City, capital of the province.
