Milo Keno, president? said he would confer with organized labor, particularly representatives of railroad groups, in Chicago Monday to talk over possible cooperation of industrial workers in the strike movement. Not eVen the National Holiday headquarters here could esti- .mate the number of farmers in 27 states supporting the holiday, who went on strike Saturday. If present plans materialize, there will be no violence, Eeno said, "except as necessary to prevent eviction of farmers from their homes." • Reno hopes to enlist several*— • —. _ -. million farmers. Farm Bureau leaden, who will not participate, and some other recognized agrarian experts here predicted that not more than 10 per cent of the farmers in the Mississippi valley would be enrolled. It is probable, Holiday leaden feel, that the present strike w'll not result in highway picketing to force non-participants to keep their produce and livestock from market*. In previous strike* picketing ^ was resorted to in scattered isolated communities. . Rather, Reno said, the strikers Till concentrate on preventing mortgage foreclosures. Angered by slow action of land hanks and the AAA to speed mortgage relief with - the result that foreclosures are again under way thruout the grain belt, Reno said his cohorts had been given instruction* "to allow no farmer to be dispossessed of hta home." Asked if the national association would frown on violence to prtvemt foreclosure, Reno replied, "w* would ait The farmer most not b* 4iapOMe«ed.

World-Wide Scoop on Big News WASHINGTON (U.R) — The Soviet government made » graceful gesture Friday in permitting President Roosevelt to score » "scoop" on announcement of forthcoming negotiations looking toward resumption of diplomatic relations between the two nations, observers noted Saturday. As is often the case with important international announcements, arrangements were made to release the exchange of correspondence between President Roosevelt and President Kalinin of Russia both in Washington and in Moscow. At flrsi, the Moscow release was set p. m., Moscow time, 4 Washington time. Roosevelt's regular nie'.'s conference was for 11 P. m., President bi-weekly for 4 p. m., and it was whispered at the white house early in the afternoon that an important Russian announcement was likely. But the rule of presidential press conferences is that no one may leave until the president has answered all questions brought up for discussion. Therefore, it the news were announced in would before Mr. Roosevelt's conference ended. So the Moscow announcement was obligingly withheld until after 4:30.

If you are of similar mind, I should be glad to receive any representatives you may designate to explore with me personally all questions outstanding between bur countries. ."Participation in such a discussion would, of course, not commit either nation to any future .course of action, but would indicate a sincere desire to reach a satisfactory solution of the problems Involve!, ft is my hope that such conversations might result in good to the people'of both our- countries.
