(Valted Press Leased H'ire,* TVEW YORK, Jan. 24.—An excess •*•" of publicity and a rumored "blueprint of revolution," possibly ^^PXtt)is^l, i .W.ere..blanied-today for a schism in technocracy which led four academic associates of Howard Scott to, dispose of him as their director and abandon the catchword, ''"technocrat." For months there has been a sharp division among tho engineers who called themselves the technocrats. One faction sought to confine their wi»rk to the energy survey, making technocracy purely a fact-finding body. The other wnnjed technocracy to be a semi-political organization with a definite program for putting Into effect a drastically changed economic system. * Motive Analyzed .Publicly, all technocrats from Scott down have maintained that fact-finding wa« the only objective, but In private discussions associates or members of the group have spoken freely of a supposed "blueprint" mapping the moves necessary to take over administration of national affairs. Tho "energy survey of the North American continent," was' taken over by Columbia, University, where It will be continued "as a scholarly enterprise of the university under a new. organization and a new name," It was announced. Four Men Lead Revolt Professor Walter Rautenstrauch, head of'the university's department of Industrial engineering, led the revolt against Scott. He was joined by I/eon Henderson, housing expert of the Russell Sage Foundation; Ferdinand L. Ackeryian, architect, and Bassett Jones, engineer, all members of the original committee of eight on technocracy. In behalf of his fellow rebels,' Prof essor Rautenstraueh said they were ."not In accord with some of the statements and attitudes expressed by Mr. Howard Scott." Tho architect's and engineers paid from unemployment relief funds to gather statistics and draw charts for technocracy, will continue their work,'but under the direction of Professor Rautenstrauch. The disposition of tho 300 odd charts already drjiwn was a mystery. Three Stand by Scott Members of the technocracy committee who did not sign the ukase of revolt were Scott himself, Dal, Hltch- co'ck, Scott's spokesman^ Harold King, a writer, and M. King Hubbert, geophysics Instructor. Hitchcock was known to remain loyal to Scott but both King and Hubbert were thought to be unsympathetic, Mrs. Scott reported her lutsband was overcome with "excitement" and In bed with Influenza.

Symposium on "America and World Situation" Held by Experts By WALTER B.. CLAUSEN (Associated.Press Leased Wire) P ASADENA, Jan. 24.—Albert Bin stetn, finding that relativity laJ JJ not applicable to ^'everyitfij'.- "life, [ ' ' went into a consultation to think (United Press Leased Wire) BERLIN, Jan. '24.^-Chancellor Kurt- von" Schlelcher was understood today to have grown tired of conciliatory efforts to win the support of various >olltlca! and industrial organizations, and to be ready to resort to blunt- dictatorship to settle Germany's Immediate political future. Well-Informed politicians expected President Von Hlndenburg to endow Ihe chancellor with far-reaching dictatorial powers. , In the, event the president could not be Induced to Issue i decree Indefinitely adjourning the Reichstag, Von Schlelcher was expected to dissolve parliament, declare :i national emergency, and postpone 9 general election sine die. Regard as Coup d'Etat The constitution provides that an election must be held within 60 days after dissolution of parliament. Sine- die dissolution would be regarded aa a breach of the constitution and tantamount to :i coup d'etat, a policy which Hlndenburg has rejected for seven and a half years. It was reported that the relations jetween Von Schlelcher and the President and Hlndenbtirg's son, Ma- 'or Oskar Von Hlndenburg, had cooled notably due to the attachment of the veteran . field marshal for former Chancellor Franz Von Papen. Von Schlelcher was credited with laving his own dictatorial plans If the President did not grant'sufficiently wide powers. Members of the government, however, denied emphatically that there was any Intention of proclaiming u state of national emergency. • "Out of Character" A r on Schlelcher, a military man ored- ted with strong-nrm tendencies, has been "out of character" during political negotiations of the past two months and 'his prestige has suffered accordingly. His popularity -was due to his military tactics and his fame as a wire puller behind the scenes, and neither quality has been In evidence .greatly In recent weeks. Millions of citizens were surprised at .Von Schlelcher'K efforts to win the collaboration of Adolf Hitler's Nazis through means used by ordinary politicians. ACTION nSIFOB ON SUBPOENAJOR FORD (United Press Leased Wire) DETROIT, Jan. 24.—Arguments on a motion-to quash services of a. subpoena on i Henry Ford were deferred today until Saturday by Circuit Judge Guy A. Miller. The postponement automatically delays hearing on an application for a bench warrant compelling Ford's testimony in a counter-suit brought against liln motor company by tho Swoeton Automobile Company, Philadelphia. Hearing-o|i the application, liled by Kenneth M. Stevens, Sweeten attorney, had been held up pending a ruling on the motion to, quash. Meanwhile, Stevens continued the taking of depositions of other wlt- nesses In the suit. ~—• *-*-* GOVERNOR ROLPH IMPROVING SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 84. (A. P.)— Continued Improvement In the conc|l- tlon of Governor James Ralph, ,Vr.. recovering at a local hospital from an Influenza attack, wad reported by hospital attendants today. They said his temperature was normal, that ho was not coughing, and that he re.stod comfortably during the night, out a formula of what to do about tho world In general and the depression in particular. His intellectual consultants were Henry M. Robinson, banker and < interhution ally known economist,' and Professor William B. Munro, historian. The three thought out loud last night in u symposium here on "America and the World Situation." Formula Explained Their formula, expressed mathematically, is that "dispassionate analytical understanding" "(Einstein) plus "elimination of fear" (Robinson) plus "adjournment of politics" (Munro) measured by the co-operation of the people, equaled economic recovery. Einstein thinks the first step necessary to dispassionate understanding Is the removal of the "obstacle of the tabu." That obstacle, he explained, "lies In words and other symbols which are laden with emotion." Words Eject Reason He Said that although words exist for the most part for the transmission of Ideas, there are some which "produce' such violent disturbances In our feelings" that the role they play In the transmission of Ideas Is lost In tho background. Among these words he included "honor, prestige, fatherland in nearly all the countries of the present world." "The use of such words Is adapted for the driving out of all reason and the setting up of emotion In Its place," he said. Cause of Depression Facing "nalied reality" as he termed It, Einstein said he did not believe that war debts caused the depression, but that. It was due to increased production from technical Invention and organization decreasing the need for human labor. He believes international obligations should be reduced to a figure payable and acceptable by a corresponding amount of goods. He thinks disarmament can most rapidly be reached by eliminating universal military service and dependence upon professional armies. The fundamental necessity, he pointed out, was dispassionate reflection to analyze conditions and thus create mutual understanding to develop the ability to peacefully solve all questions. Robinson's View Robinson, who served on the supreme allied economic council and the Dawes reparations commissions, said that "In oj^r difficulties fear Is TEMPTATION IS REMOVED (Associated Press Leased "Wire) SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 24.—The plight of''a thrifty Scotsman who discovered he had unwittingly acquired • counterfeit 50-cent piece, and who was torn between a desire to balance either his purse or his conscience, was told today in a letter signed A. F. Moyes, received here today by Captain' T. B. Foster, local head of the secret service. "I am forwarding the Inclosed bogus 50-cent piece to you," said the letter, "to call It to your attention, but I will be candid to you in regard to my doing so. I am not altogether altruistic. You see, I was.born a Scot and a Presbyterian and the conflict between the well-advertised Scottish thrift and the Presbyterian conscience Is too much for me, so I am really getting rid of It by sending it to you, thus easing my conscience and removing temptation at the same time."

(United Presa Leased Wire) COURTROOM, Phoenix, Jan. 24.— The probable dismissal 'of a charge that J. J. Halloran was an accessory after the murder of Agnes Anne Lerol was forecast late today when tfudge J. C. Nlles said he felt the state had produced no evidence of .murder at Halloran's preliminary hearing. Judge Nlles stated from the bench that the state had proved that Winnie Ruth Judd had killed Mrs. Lerol .but, by the same testimony, had permitted her to make' a strong showing of self- defense. This he Inclined to Interpret as a defense of Halloran, since there could be no accessory after murder, If there was no murder. County Attorneys objected that only a Jury could determine whether the shooting of Mrs. Lerol was In self- defense, and Judge Nlles reserved his ruling .until tomorrow morning. Frank O. Smith, chief counsel for Halloran, claimed that Mrs. Judd's testimony was Inspired by "Interests that have been aiding her In her effort to escape execution." Ho said he dldjiot blame Mrs. Judd for doing everything possible to save her own life, but at the same time Insisted no evidence had been Introduced to warrant holding Halloran for trial. Defense Rests When Smith concluded, the defence rested on Its, motion to dismiss tho complaint and the prosecution began Its arguments. County Attorney Renz L. Jennings Insisted that to hold Mulloran. It was necessary only to show there was sufficient cause to believe he bad sonio part In the action after the deaths of Mrs, Lerol and Hedvlg Snmuelson. The girls were shot te death by Mrs. Judd at the climax of u three-cornered argument. Mrs. Judd was tried .only for the death of Mrs. Lorol and the count against Hullorun concerns only her death. Mrs. Judd testified that Halloran aided her In disposing of the bodies and also that he helped her escape to California, where she was arrested. The defense claimed that the state, In the current hearing,, failed to prove a murder had been committed and that even If It had, there was no evl- (Conttnucd on Page Two) FALSELY .SEBBJpimiN (United Press Leased Wire) LOS ANCJUL15S, Jan. 24.- HCCO.USO he served 27 months In Ban Quentln prison for a crime he did not commit, William Dyer will ask the slate; Legislature to pay him $4320, his attorney, Kosaljnd Goodrich Bates, announced today.

Bryan— rang out in the Senate today as efforts were made by Democratic liberals to attach quch an amendment to the Glass backing reform bill. Over the protest of the veteran conservative, Carter tilass, of Virginia, Senator Wheeler of Montana revived the historic Issue with a declaration that the boosting of silver prices 'would cure most of the world's troubles. Declares Not Germane Before Wheeler spoke, Glass, author of the bank bill the Senate hopes to pass at a night session tonight, if not s'oonor, declared«tho silver question was not germane' to the measure, and that any further moves of similar nature would be met with a demand from him that the proposals be tabled. "Of course I shall ask rejection of this amendment," Glass assorted, adding the "bank hill Is to Insure some measure of good banking and It has nothing to do with currency." Double Prices, Claim • Wheeler said he challenged anyone last year to disprove his claim that remonetlzation of silver at IB to 1 would double the valuo of the world's primary money and more than donblu the price of wheat and cotton and the purchasing power of silver nations. "Since thnt time," he added, "nobody on cither side of this chamber has disputed that. Not only that, but since then we have seen an Increasing number of foreclosures of mortgages nnd Increased bank failures, and country after country has gone off the gold standard until now nearly •10 nations are using other standards."

ROBERTS fUnlted Press Leased Wire) CACRAMENTO, Jan. 24.—The Sen ^ ate today defeated, by a vote of 21 to 10, the "compromise" constitutional amendment Introduced by rural members providing a 10 per cent reduction in state school support. A two-thirds majority, or 27 votes, is required to pass a const!- , tutionul amendment. The vote, disclosing a decided split in the Upper House on the question of school finances, was preceded by a heated debate between opposing sides. Senator Joe Rllcy, Bishop, led the debate In favor of the amendment, while Senator Chris N. Jespersen, Paso Robles, headed the opposition. Criticizes Educatois Senator Arthur H. Breed, Oakland, who has led a fight for reduced state school • expenditures, said that educators have taken the attitude that "everybody should entrench except us." "A reduction of 10 per cent In state school support would not hamper the activities of our public schools," Breed said. Also favoring the bill, Senator David F. Bush, Oakdale, pointed out that "If we do not balance the budget the state faces bankruptcy." "This measure will help the state by saving ?G,OOU,000. If thu schools will cut out some of thu frills, tho reduction will not make an added burden on tho counties as sonic have charged." .Opposes Decreases Senators Chris X. Jesporseri, Paso .RobletJ, itnd William K. Harper, Sun Diego,, .took, the .maud that any decrease In state achool expenditures wonld benefit the public utilities and not common property owners. "We are going to have to Increase, not decrease, the state's share of school costs In order to reduce thu load on common properly," Juspersen said. Senator Rfley, answering arguments that the public utilities should bear a greater tax burden, said he would "go along In a plan to raise public utility taxes to a basis equal with common property." "At tho same time," he added, "school costs generally should be reduced In view of the greater purchasing power of the dollar and the need of a balanced budget."
