WALLACE FIXES HOG PROCESSING TAX FASCISTS PLAN HflRLD FIGHT ON LIBERAL PARTIES Mussolini's Hand Seen in Background of Moy^ement fly ROBER" H. BEST. United Pr«i« staff Correspondent (Copyright ,1«3 by Uaittd Press) VIENNA, <LIE)—Fascists are conducting secret negotiations for world congress to form a "fourth international," dedicated to opposing communist, socialist, liberal and democratic tendencies, It was learned -a high authority Thursday. Planned to function like the first three internationals, all of socialist-communist character, the fourth international would have exactly an opposite purpose. It wag learned that fascist or- ganisations in many nations have exchanged riewg for months on the possibility of forming an organization to oppose the domination ot allegedly outdated democratic political organizations and ideas of jKivernmenL The proposed new international is referred to synonymously by its sponsors as an international organ ization of youth. Premier Benito Mussolini was declared to be in the background of plans for the congress. Revelation of plans for the international followed a recent startling trend toward fascism under its own name or that of German nazi- ism. Fascists are in control in Germany, Chancellor ^ngelbert Dollfuss of Austria tho an enemy of German fascism is fast organizing his government on the lines of the fascist guild system of Italy. Strong nazi parties' have developed in Czechoslovakia. Norway, Estbonia and other countries and are fighting democratic parties. All are motivated by the conviction that democratic government is inefficient and that in future p$o- pl«i mast took to, enlightened _lasr cist,rulers for guidance and follow them unquestioning]?-. The new organization would make no clear division between or democracy but seek to jettison all. ' In 1864 organized labor former the first international. It was a trades union organization. Karl Marx drew up its platform. It expired after the Philadelphia congress In 1876. The second or socialist international was formed in 1889. Maintenance of world peace became its main tenet When war broke out in 1914, the members of the second international went to war, fighting each other. After the war the congresses were resumed with Amsterdam as headquarters. Communists, disgusted, formed their own international, the third, during the war years. They launched it formally In 1919. | Einstein Here to Teach at Princeton iVearing a floppy dark raincoat and big velvet hat, and carrying lis violin, Prof. Albert Einstein, is shown as he arrived in New York to assume his duties as professor of mathematics at the In stitute for Advanced Stuffy at Princeton university, Princeton, N.

Handled Deals WASHINGTON (HE) — Capital shares of the Chase National bank were shown Thursday by senate stock market investigation to have sky-rocketed more than $100 a share during the seven, boom-time months when the bank was trading nuirectly to the extent of millions in its own stock. Albert H. Wiggin, then head of he bank, testified he also was buying Chase stock at the time. Wiggin said Chase stock quotations leaped from $575 to $684 a share from September 1927 to April 1928, the period during which the Chase Securities corporation, in association with three brokerage louses, bought and sold more than $13,000,000 worth of the bank's stock. A drive to prevent investigation of certain Chase National bank oans to Cuba on the ground that revelations might incite riot in. the sland republic was underway Thursday, the United Press was reliably informed. It was understood that persons connected with the Chase organization urged that phase of the current inquiry be abandoned.

Recently the impression grew that President Roosevelt was pulling away from the experiment of the brain" trust and was shifting emphasis to more orthodox credit expansion as an aid to recovery. The story went around that Gen. Hugh S. Johnson and NRA were to be left to shift for themselves. But the president's a.ctlon in issuing ca executive order which provided fines and jail sentences for violators of the blue eagle presidential agreements has been viewed, in Washington as a tip that the white house in strongly behind the recovery administration. Washington has been so numbed by unprecedented experiments that the magnitude of what is going on comes to be taken for granted until some little incident recalls contrasts in the dead days of the past One small item about Admiral Dewey appeared this week when the mausoleum which marked his original burial place was ordered removed from'Arlington cemetery. When he came home from the battle of Manilla bay, the most popular hero before Llnbdergh, Admiral Dewey decided to run for president. He said: "Since studying this subject I am convinced that the office of the president is not such a very difficult one to fill, his duties being mainly to execute the laws of congress."

A brief description of the organization of the daily-newspaper will serve to coordinate in the reader's mind the functions of its various departments. There are five major departments in the smaller daily newspaper plant, all linked closely together in the production of a live, Interest- Ing newspaper every day. These departments are the business office, advertising, editorial, mechanical and circulation departments. Functions of the business office were touched upon in the opening article of the" series, Wednesday. The business office is supervised by a business manager, and is the liaison unit between the newspaper and the commercial world of which the newspaper is a part. The advertising department has» ' ", two subdivisions, each with its manager and salespeople.. These are the display advertising and classified advertising sections. Display advertising is every form of advertising except legal appearing in. the newspaper outside of the classified section. The classified section, derives Its name from the manner in which small advertisements are classified under specific Readings, and always confined ti, <jfne page, or one distinct section- " i1 the newspaper. '.t. The mechanical department, as its name suggests, cowers all mechanical processes, in the production of the newspaper. It is, composed of the typesetting, makeup, stereotyping and printing processes. This, department is highly organized, as it necessarily must -be/in order to produce a newspaper made over entirely new in its content every day. Delivering The Paper ' Under the direction of the circi^ latioa manager, the newspaper is delivered to its readers. The circulation manager's job begins at the printing press. -His 'organization is usually the largest in the newspaper office. His small army of carrier boys reaches into all parts of the city delivery area within the shortest possible time after the press starts to run. The circulation department handles a large number of papers going into the mail every day to rural and other out-of-town subscribers. All matters pertaining ,o subscriptions and to the delivery of the paper are handled in this department. The editorial department is the heart and soul of the newspaper plant The manner In which it performs its duties and fulfills its mission Is the measure- of success 'or the entire newspaper. The Driving Force The editorial department may be ikened to the locomotive of a passenger train. It is the driving force iat makes the newspaper a living thing in the community.
