Feb. 2 AP Germany formally announced to the world tonight that she was taking advant-asc of the 1935 and 1937 Anglo-Girman naval agreements to build up to parity with the British fleet in submarines and to arm her new 10.000-ton cruisers with heavier guns. Tlie guns will be of 20.3 centimeters caliber (7.992 inches) instead of 15 centimeters '5.906 inches.) Great Britain was informed of the decision last December 30 The following announcement was released tomgnt. mrougn German official news agency: "In December. 1938. tne uermau oovernment notified tne tinusn government of its intention to put ! into effect certain rights under the i Anglo-German naval agreements of ; June 18. ivia. ana ju;. ii. roi. "Friendly conversations took place in Berlin December 30. 1938, on certain questions arising from the German claims to these rights. Germany at that time undertook to make a communication in writing, which was done January 18. "Accordingly. Germany will build ir ifs cnhmarine tnnnaee to parity j with the memoer states or wie diu- lsn empire, oegmning wim wjj uutu the agreed limit is reached .;"nfnA"a' tc 111 lUHf-lOIl flUIMTI XV ttilLl J under construction, transferring to class A. to! which Germanv is entitled under wmui upunaii.t TTnlpr the oact Germanv meS to imit her total naval ton- U , nf Rritain's ilflfcc tv H-i Right To Parity Recognized. The pact, however, recognized Germany's right to parity in sud marines and there was an escape clause which allowed her to build in the event of a situation arising which in its (the German government's opinion makes it necessary." The intention to achieve parity means that Germany intends to more than double her present submarine tonnage of about 31.000 tons completed or under construction, since Britain's is about 70.000. I'nited States Not Alarmed. Washington, Feb. 2. (AP.) Experts said tonight that Germany's decision to expand her submarine forces may necessitate new defensive measures by Great Britain but probably not by the United States. A bis fleet of hostile undersea craft would constitute the samedle Atlantic States and the south threat to Britain s food supply as in the World War. Already Germany has more mod- era suumaunes uwn eiuia ""Jiand Tennessee and coiaer i-Tiaay : American naval data showed.

Republican members of the Judiciary Committee held an informal j caucus Thursday afternoon at which it was reported there was ! discussion of the bill' which would ! prohibit dual job holding by legis-I lators. but at which there was no 'attempt to poll the committee. Earlier in the day Governor Baldwin told newspapermen he considered the bill a part of the Republican Party program and ex-: pectrd the General Assembly would carry through that program. There was no evidence Thursday of when ' the Judiciary Committee may take action on the bill, subject of a hearing Tuesday which revealed within the Legislature a sharp" division en opinion on the merits of the measure in its present form. Bills designed to stop the adulteration of gasoline ana to tax food stores selling motor lubricating oils and greases will be reported un- i i favorably by the legislative Corn- mittee on Motor Vehicles. Though at the hearing on the measures there was no opposition and Motor Vehicles Commissioner Michael A. u., .K. ".',,, T.r'!:, the i thP -'ad i teration" measures in. Hie a i.ui iridium " were voted down in an execuuve i session Thursday at the Capitol. ; The committee also voted an un-; favorable report to the House on a ' bii, allowing the unietuiKied balance of taxes received from the tale : of aviation gasoline to revert to the ' Department of Aeronautics. Ii : voted to report favorably on a bill allowing the operation oi ioreign (.ars jn connec'ticut without a state registration. Litchfield County Republican legislators Thursday voted that a resolution appointing Frank J. Seaton of Goshen to succeed Charles P. Harrington of Kent as county commissioner for the unexpired portion ! of the term ending October 1. 1941, j be introduced in the Legislature. ! Seaton was the choice brought out ; of a caucus of Republican legislators i from the Thirtieth District, He re ceived four votes against one each cast for Chauncey E. Hutchings of Harwinton. Herman Walthers of Goshen ami Harold Shapiro of New Hartford. With Harry M. Smith of New Hartford presiding, the meeting got off to a slow start as various members sought to determine the "legality" of their proposed action. At length it was pointed out that the Litchfield Democratic legislators could choose their own candidate for commis- cionpr or for that matter any mem- ber might introduce the name of any candidate for consideration. Mr. Harrington was appointed to fill out the unexpired term by Governor Crass.

Miss Renshaw had asked interpretation of the statute requiring the committee to secure an affidavit regarding the conviction. Tne Attorney General said it was his "conviction' that the petitioner should not be compelled to advertise the hearing on the ground that "the applicant, who is desrous of rehabilitating himself, to lead an honest and upright life and to forget the unfortunate act, should not be compelled to publish again to the whole world his former crime and conviction for which he has atoned."

Thomas H. Eliot. New England regional director of the Federal wage and hour law division, charged tonight that the fear of losing their jobs had lost for millions of Americans "the freedom to say what they think." The former general counsel for the Social Security Board said in a prepared address to a dinner of the Civil Liberties Committee of Massachusetts commemorating the one hundred fiftieth anniversary of ratification of the Bill of Rights: "Every week our wage and hour division hears of cases where men or girls earning $4 or $5 for a long work week have been afraid to speak out because of fear of losing their jobs. Of cour.se they can quit if they don't like the work or the pay, but freedom to starve Is not part of the Bill of Rights." Governor Leverett Saltonstall, Republican, who yesterday asked the Legislature to give belated ratification to the Bill of Rights, said "Freedom fo speech, assembly, the press and due process of law are really more in jeopardy today than when our ancestors set up the safeguards." American government, he said, was founded on "widest possible freedom of criticism and discussion." and "we cannot have freedom of speech for some doctrines and repression for others." Morris Ernst, counsel for the American Civil Liberties Union, proposed that Massachusetts create a separate bureau of the government concerned with the protection of civil liberties. Howard Mumford Jones. Harvard professor of English, pointed out that the word "race" was not "found in the original Constitution or the Bill of Rights, because "the founding fathers knew racial conflict and they did not want any more of it." Religious Teaching Cut By German Governor Muenster, Germany. Feb. 2. (AP.) The district governor of Muenster today ordered the limitation of subject matter for religious instruction in schools under his jurisdiction. The order, affecting particularly the teaching of the Old Testament, followed previous restrictions on the number of hours permitted for religious instruction. At the same time the government of Anha'.t Province, which already had forbidden teaching of the Old Testament, extended the ban to cover the Epistles of Paul. It was recalled that in his Reichstag speech Monday night Adolf Hitler denied any interference with religion existed in Germany. The man whirled, seized her by the arm and sought to drag her with him. "Come on, you fool!" he cried. "Troll! Help!" Gonfala screamed. Troll was ahead of them, but now he turned bark, his face hite and distorted with rage. "Let go her'." he bellowed. Would Lure Elusive Glawackus With Potion Not Purely Perfume So Hunter Must Sit to the Windward to Inveigle the Heast to Its Doom ; It's As Simple As That Says Hushnell Naturalist Gone without a trace since January 26, and then far from its haunts in Glastonbury, the Glawackus ap peared Thursday to be taking its place in the folklore and legends of Connecticut along with the Moodus noises, the wooden nutmegs and the wind that blew out the candle to leave Governor Andros in the dark Howard Cleaves, the famed tia- tm-alLst. wim iPpivp, Pririai, rm.ht at Bushneil Memorial, Thursday came through with a plan to lure the mysterious animal He nrnnoses the mysterious animal.

Mortensen at the Bushneil. It's simple enough, just a few drops of the compound on the ground or a ousn and sit bact to wait for the Glawackus. There's one drawback, Mr. Cleaves points out: The wind must be in the right direction, or else. It's a potion definitely not in the perfume class. From Daniel Brooks, an East McKesson Official Says $1,020,000 Stock Sales Made on $68,000 Firm New York, Feb. 2. (AP.) Row- ' ley W.
