RUSSELL Unittd Pre»« Staff Correspondent (Copyright, 1933, by United Preas) LONDON <&£) — The British government has decided' definitely against resuming payment of full war debt installments to the United States regardless of the outcome of present negotiations at Washington, it was learned Friday from an ajutboritatice source. . Two alternatives will bfe offered the United States, it was said on authority regarded as unimpeachable. They are: 1. A lump settlement in gold of not more than 100,000,000 pounds (1475,000,000). 2. "Token" payments of $5,000,000 each every six months in place of the full installments of about $95.500,000. The present capital value of the BriUsh war debt Is about $3,600,000.000. Under the original war debt agreement payments of about $9,000,000.000 would have '' been made up to 1984. Sir Frederick Leith-Ross, chief economic adviser to the government and principal British war debt negotiator, already has been instructed to make the alternative offers named, it was understood.

The plan advanced by the subcommittee and^ which was considered virtually certain of adoption provides for a three cents a mile one way first class tare, two cents for round trip travel and a flate two cents a mile rate for coach travel.

"Organized labor can make a mighty contribution, to recovery if it continues to exhibit, not only on the part of leaders but also in the ra. k and file, a recognition of patriotic cooperation which _a majority of employees have rendered to the president's program," Farley said. . . Father Hass said that criticism of the;NRA, was not justified because the ; ultimate results will be an enlargement of liberties rather than any encroachment upon per'. al privileges. ' An effort to put the federation on record in support of striking coal miners was rejected. Bureau Officials Deny Charge of Shipping Lobby CHICAGO, OJ.E)—The American Farm Bureau federation, thru its department of information here, issued the following statement Friday in connection with a United Press dispatch concerning testi-" mony before a senate Investigating committee. "A press-statement over the signature of a Washington correspondent published October 4 in various newspapers charged tat officials of te American Farm Bureau federation at one time offered to enter into a propaganda and lobbying activities designed to secure ocean mail contracts for U. S. shipping interests. "Such a statement is 100 per cent false. "The American Farm Bureau federation, since December 14, 1922 has consistently opposed subsidy for American shipping interests. While opposing subsidies, the farm bureau has consistently favored an adequate American merchant marine." ••?> -- —— Jury Empaneled to Hear Damage Case NEVADA — A jury was empan- eled in Story county district court here Friday to hear testimony in tie damage case brought against V.

TANGLE IN NRA DELAYS PEACE IN COAL REGION Gen. Johnsbn, Richb'g Make Conflicting • Statements WASHINGTON, OLE)— A mixup between Recovery Administrator Hugh Jonson and NRA Counsel Doaald Richberg Friday imperilled the government's efforts to settle the Pennsylvania coal and steel strike. Johnson regarded as extremely dangerous continued strife centering around captive coal mines owned by steel companies. He cast about for some way out of a tangle caused by hisand Ridi- berg's conflicting interpretations of an agreement signed Thursday by owners of the captive mines. But he indicated there was little he could do for the next few days except to hope that the miners and the steel companies might come to an agreement by themselves. Johnson said the key to the situation was the .deraknd of strikers for installation of the "check-off" system. Under the check-off, union dues are deducted from a worker's wages by the employer and turned over directly to the union. The steel, companies, which refused to eater a direct contract with the United Mine Workers of America, do not want to enter such an arrangement which would strengthen the union organization in their mines) Supports Miners Johnson himself ^supported the miners' contention'that the agreement which the.;-.steel companies sijgned with the president called for tne check-off system. To his "utter amazement" he.-"Teamed that Richberg had assured the steel ex- %cutives, before they .signed the agreement, that the check-off would not be required. Richberg was due back Friday from IHinofsy where he sought to compose'.dlgerences which hare caused fresh violence in down-state coal fields. Reasons for his-interpretation of the PennsylvanjpBree- nrent may be cleared up onftls re4 turn. But regardless of any clarifications to be made later, the steel companies received their assurances before they signed and stood pat. '..-.". The., national labor board continued efforts to undertake .mediation of labor ^troubles: at Ford Motor company plants '• in Chester, • Pa., and Edge water, N.

The other dispute was over wages. It has been referred to a fact-finding committee of three, which will report in three weeks. Meantime the pilots will remain on the job.

Both the downtown and fourth ward fire companies responded to the alarm, the location being> within the downtown fire district.- The blaze was discovered on f e floor' in the kitchen of the apartment.

Even Common Laborers on Government's Tennessee Valley Project Will Be Selected by Civil Service to Overcome Any Political Pressure WASHINGTON (GE)—Eren common laborers on the government'* huge Tennessee ralley development will he selected by civil service tsts, it was revealed Friday. Dr. Arthur E. Morgan, chairman of the TVA said that said that political pressure from senators and congressmen that thejr "friends be put to work" on the project had reached such proportions that it interfered with the work of the authority, and 1 necessitated appeal to the civil sen-ice commission. He declared that "evt;a a common laborer for the development will be selected from the civil serv- ice'lists cfter an examination. That examination will be along the same lines as given prospective navy department employes." "I really do not blame members of congress for the situation," he explained. "There are so many people desperately In need of work that the senators and representatives themselves are hard-pressed." Dr. Morgan said that administrative costs of the project would be redaced materially thru direct civil service action which would re- leas, for other work a< large staff that had to be maintained to care for more thaa 1,000 daily applications for jobs. ''..•• "First of all," Dr. Morgan re- marked, "tew people know that we are out of politics by law. "Secondly, if the government goes into business it has got to go into it in a business-like way." He pointed out that stories of the ambitious public works program for the Tennessee valley had attracted a floating population from all parts of the country, imposing a heavy relief burden on already harassed communities. He added that Tennessee valley residents were being given the preference on laboring jobs. Dr. Morgan spent a half-hour with President Roosevelt, discuss- ing with him the construction progress of Norris dam on the Clinch river in Tennessee and appealing for additional funds to purchase park lands near the dam. He estimated that this land, which would be economically useless for farming after the dam was completed, pould be acquired for about $2,000,000. At the same time he also revealed that actual construction would begin ' in a week on the transmission line to run between Clinch river and the Muscle Shoals hydro-electric power plant.

Johnson still favors the proposed -"stop loss" price regulation features of the general retail code and intend to recommend their ... approval by President Roosevelt unless Opponents advance more convincing ar- gumects than they have so far. This was made clear by the general as he resumed personal command of the NRA Friday after an absence of more than two weeks. Johnson was in Walter Reed hospital 12 days for a minor operation. Then he went'to New York to con^ fer with President Roosevelt He returned Thursday, attended the world reries tame, and then visited his office briefly. He said he felt a bit "wobbly" by the end of the day, but his color was- good and he talked with newspapermen in his usual vigorous manner. The retail code is the most important one still pending before the NRA. With Johnson back at his desk, early action is expected, not only but on several others which lagged during his absence. Disputed price provisions on the retail code would forbid stores to sell goods at less than the invoice cost to them plus "0 per cent. Pointing out that costs of store operation average considerably more than 10 per cent, Johnson contended the provision would protect small stores 'against "ruthless" (Cortinued on Page Two) John D.

Officials said it. was the largest the organization ever has field. A ' four-point program for the care of disabled veterans, Ameri canism and national defense are the Legion policies for the coming year. They were adopted witl only slight debate at the final' s sion. The 1934 convention will be held in Miami, Fla. The national :defense program was one- of the strongest ever approved by the .ex-soldiers." They urged that the army be restored to full peacetime strength, that organized reserves be enlarged, thai more funds be provided for aircraft and research and that the navy be built up to full treaty strength. NEW YORK, O>—Liquor control legislation should seek to abolish lawlessness, promote temperance, and regard taxation revenue asm incidental, John D. Rockefeller, jr., -aid Friday. In a statement to be i-ublished as as a foreword to a report on liquor control, Rockefeller reaffirmed his personal abstinence and termed the eighteenth amendment " a re- gretable failure." the study. He sponsored •Rightly, the first objective (after repeal) is the abolition of lawlessness," Rockefeller said. "Any program offered In lieu of the eighteenth amendment must make that its chief uim even if—and I weigh carefully what I nay—the immediate result la temporarily away from temperance. "Th« second objective is the fo- cusing of all forces of society upon the development of self-control and temperance as regards the use of alcoholic beverages." The nation-wide disregard for law which followed attempts to force total abstinance thru prohibition was "an evil greater than intemperance," Rockefeller said. The regretable failure of the eighteenth amendment "has demon? strated the fact that the majority of the people of this country are not yet ready for total abstinance, at least when it Is attempted thru legal coercion." "The eighteenth amendment embodied an ideal," he added, "but it could succeed only with the support of public opinion. The mistake Involved In Its passage WRS I he- failure, to forsee that unhappily it might not alwayi have that support" - , Archduke Otto Makes Another Bid for Throne VIENNA O.> — Twenty-year-old Archduke Otto, Hapsburg heir of the discontinued Austrian throne. Friday aligned himself and all Austrian monarchists behind Chancellor Engelbert Dollfuss. Otto's declaration of support was made to the United Press thru Dr. F. R. Von Wiesner, of the entourage assigned him during his exile. Its importance was twofold first that it throws the support of some of Austria's most influential men to the little chancellor in his fight against nazism; secondly that it brings materially nearer the possibility of Otto becoming a constitutional monarch over Austria, The statement, forwarded from Brussels where Otto, now visiting chateaus in Belgium and France, makes his headquarters, first mentioned Otto's recent declaration when he was made an honorary citizen of three Austrian towns. This declaration was interpreted as A bid for the throne.

A new enthusiasm for Cyclone football, born of Iowa State's victory over Denver and the renewal of football relatinships with the University of Iowa, prevails over Ames and the campus alike. It is to capitalize upon this enthusiasm that Cardinal Guild and the Ames business men's committee has been working two weeks on a new pep program.

' In their half, the Senators filled the bases with one out but Bolton hit into a double play. ; GRIFFITH STADIUM , Washington (IDE) — Washington's rejuvenated Senators and Now York Giant* met Friday in tho fourth and probably most critical gome of the 1933 world series. At the end of the tenth inning the score was tied at one to one. A brilliant sun was shining and a slightly chilly breeze whipped down from tie northeast. Pressure of official business kept President Roosevelt away. He planned, however, to attend Saturday's g.ome. Finally in the winning column because of Bail Whitehill's masterful pitching and Buddy Myer's timely work at bat Thursday, the Senators tried to press their luck and get a victory that would make the game count stand at two all. Carl Hubbell, screwball star, was Manager Bill Terry's choice. The Senators cause was placed on the slants on Monte Weaver, dependable righthander. Monte Weaver, Washington right- handed pitcher, started nervously and walked Moore, the first man up, but Critz hit into a double play, ending the threat and discounting a single by Terry.
