Object to Merriam Certain advisers of Governor Ilolph were reported to have objected to handing over the governorship t o Mer- rlairi on a silver platter. Others woro bald to have stated thitt Mcrrlnni had refused to agree to such a trade. Finally, the California State GriMige fujlher complicated the .situation by Initiating a recall movement agatnat Rolph. Two Posts Appeal Attorney general or secretary of the interior would' be the cabinet posts mtJt likely to appeal to Johnson, It was stated. As attorney general, he would be In line for appointment to Jill the first United States Supreme Court vacancy, a ppsttlon to which he really aspires. As secretary of the interior, on the other hand, he would, be In • *' position to complete the Boulder dam project to which he hat given a large part of his life.

(Associated Press Leased Wire) WASHINGTON, Jan. 2G.—Three weeks of bitter fighting were over today—the Glass banking , bill was through the Senate: the filibuster was ended. But'the triumph probably was one In name only for this session. ISvery sign pointed" to slow death In the Houso of the measure for which .Senator Glass, Virginia Democrat, has fought for two years. A House legislative Jam seemed certain to block a vote on It before March 4. Vote, M to 9 In Its second • successive night session, the Senate passed the Glass bill making sweeping changes in the nation's banking laws, by a vote of 54 to 9 and today turned Its attention to the treasury-post office appropriation bill. That contained the makings of another stormy controversy. Senator* Against BUI The nine who voted against the bill were Senators Fraxlcr, North Dnkota; Howell, Nebraska; Nye, South Dakota! arid Schnll, Minnesota, Republicans; Bulow, South Dakota; Connally, Texr.s; Sheppard, Texas; and Thomas, Oklahoma, Democrats, and Shlpstead, Farmer-Labor. Minnesota.^ Senator Glass, n former secretary of the treasury and' mentioned ns Mr. Roosevelt'H choice for the same post under the new administration, licked the time-killing filibuster in the Senate last night by circulating a petition to invoke the 1 rigid cloture debate- limiting rule. It was apparent that this time the cloture petition would receive the necessary two-thirds yoto and In the face of that threat, Senators Long of Lou|Klana-, and Thomas of Oklahoma, Democratic leaders of the filibuster, gave up, said they no longer would delay the banking bill, but predicted It was as good as "dead" when It reached the House. 25 Changei in Law* The bill would make more than 25 changes In the national and federal reserve bank laws designed to curb bank failures, assist depositors of closed banks and .stop the flow of federal reserve credit to speculative channels.

"M.- -An :tiday. Should Korntved's comprehensive tory commission currency, tariffs, which prices also listed and move- ilan receive universal acclaim, ns Its proponents predict, It would fulfill an ft-1-eard prediction that tho solution of International peace would come om the most unexpected source. New World Court A plan for a new World Court with sufficient power to be effective has slowly been taking form In the mliirt of Korntved for six years as ho con-, ontedly followed his plow down tho i furrows of his secluded Greenfield vnl- ey farm. He wan tho first man from his dl*- :rlct to volunteer for service'In the World War. It was while he watched the human wreckage of that conflict return that he received his inspiration to work for world peace. "We who volunteered were the fools and tho conscientious objector was .he wise and courageous man," Korntved, a stocklly built, modest appearing man In his middle thirties, said. "We were misled by propaganda Into believing we wore fighting to make tho world safe. Millions' died, but the wWld Is less safe now than over,' All we did was make something like 22,000 new millionaires In tho United States." Congressman Arthur M. Free of San Jose, and G. P. Adnms, professor of philosophy at the University of California, took tho Initiative In recommending Korntved's plan to tho Nobel committee at Oslo, Norway. Fundamentals of Plan The basic fundamental of his plan provides for u practical set of rules for International commerce, and tho adoption of a simple universal language. Nations would voluntarily join the WorJd Court upon a vote of their people. An election on the question could be called upon petition of 10 per cent of the voters of a nation. Upon entrance into the proposed World Court a nation would auto- ments of capital aa among the world problems to bo considered at that time.

(L'nltcd Press Leased Wire) 'T'OKI'O, Jan. 26.—Japan's national •*• defense has been strengthened to meet "any emergency," Minister of War Sudao Arakl admitted during an Interpellation in tho House of Peers today. His disclosure of extensive- military preparations came on the heels of the war minister's statement that Japan is striving to build a military force equal to that of Soviet Russia. Tho war minister, questioned regarding the 800,000,000 yen ($400,000.000 at par) budget for military purposes In 1933, revealed that military training camps for youths have been established and extensive Improvements started In tho nation's aerial defense. Soviets Flared Russo-Japanese relations were Injected Into Arakl'R appearance before tho House of Peers whon Rentaro Mlzuno, former home minister; declared the recent statement by Josef Stalin Indicated "Russia either expects Japan to attack Russia or Russia Intends to attack Japan." Stalin asserted that fulfillment of Russia's five-year plan had neon hampered by "the necessity of preparing for war." Arakl's revelations of the extensive military preparations under way followed Mlzuno'a declaration that Japan's aerial defense WHS Insufficient. The peer suggested creation of a-ministry of aviation, which also would supervise development of adequate communications between Japan and Manchuria. It was the first time Arakl had openly mentioned Russia during his appearances before tho Diet. His remarks caused a buzz of excited comment and recalled tho fiery military leader's request at the close of the War In 1904 that Japan seize Siberia as a part of the Imperial domain. Without mentioning the prevalent fear in Japanese military circles of aerial attacks from Vladivostok on the Osaka industrial area, where the leading Japanese munitions factories are located, Arakl said he considered Japan's present aerial defenses "Insufficient." He recommended establishment of an air ministry. This suggestion was opposed by Minister of the Navy Mineo Osuml, who accompanied the war minister to tho House of Peers. Ho cited the rejection of a similar Idea In the United States.
