THE HARTFORD DAILY COURANT: FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 24, 1939. Ex-President Sees 'Fifth Horseman' Hoover Says Intolerant Ideologies Riding With Other Four Over Two-Thirds Of World Pittsburgh. Feb. 23. AP.) Former President Herbert Hoover said tonight a fifth horseman, Intolerant Ideologies, is riding with the four horsemen of War, Famine, Pestilence and Death over two-thirds of the people of the world. In a prepared address urging national support of the smaller colleges, Mr. Hoover declared the "failure of men to mtaintain and develop moral standards and spiritual inspiration in pace with their increase in knowledge and power' was responsible for the world's "seething with malign forces and ferments." "Men's dependable knowledge increases daily," he said. "Yet men still move from emotion and belief in fairies, x x x And it is useless to rail at the five horsemen. It is useless to rail at the advancement of science and invention." ' The Republican leader was the keynote speaker at a banquet launching the Pittsburgh part of a $10,000,000 campaign by the Presbyterian Church's sesquicentennial fund for Christian education. Turning to the world condition, the Republican leader said "I do not believe any student will deny this civilization in its politcal. economc and social phases began a decline with the Great War. Whether it is a permanent decline or a recession or a depression, no one knows. At one point only has it shown progress. That is in the increase in knowledge. That has also brought some trouble. "Now when we look around what do we see? A world seething with malign forces and ferments. Many were born with the destruction of the Great War. x x x "A score of democracies have sunk and armed dictatorships have risen in their place. They proclaim new idealogies of economic security to sanctify personal power. They live by terror and brutality. "In Germany we have seen the mo hideous persecution of the Jews. Now we see the persecution of the Christian faiths as well. "Equally in Russia we see the destruction of all faith. We see continued execution of political opponents by the thousands. "A military autocracy in control of Japan is making a war of aggression upon China as horrible as that of Genghis Khan, x x x "Truly the Four Horsemen of War, Famine, Pestilence and Death are marching. And we can today add one more, to be called Intolerant ideologies. "That, I am sad to say, is the picture of two-thirds of the people of the world today." The former President said the nation should worry less over public conscience and mass morals and worry more over individual conscience and individual morals. "For therein is the only foundation of real moral progress," he said. Mr. Hoover said that throughout history smaller colleges have been and are now the seed beds of leadership. He said the first purpose of the smaller institutions of learning was that of check and balance upon the state supported system and to "make and sustain the standards of teaching and scientific research." Too often, he said, legislatures complain and limit pioneering in state institutions. Farmers Warned On Cow Disease (Continued from Page 1.) on tests as they did on the tuberculosis tests, you're all wet." He was disturbed over a clause in the bill providing that "in no event shall indemnities be paid for postive animals which have been vaccinated when past the age of eight months unless they were vaccinated at least 18 months previous to the application." Holloway pointed out that h? and many other farmers have been vaccinating their animals for years and that under this provision they would not receive indemnities for diseased animals. Mr. Templeton reminded Mr. Holloway that the bill compelled nothing. Ralph Hemingway, dairyman of North Haven, opposed the measure on the grounds that $800,000 was not sufficient and cited figures to prove that at least $1,542,000 a year would be required for any kind of a program. He said it appeared that nt aw a SINCE 1823 mw 1 toriuo' kSgJ l is Ml V - I'M I . " A 1 ' 1- - ' '' Vs 4.. - "'"T the Legislature would simply be appropriating funds for the beneiit oi states shipping In cattle into Connecticut. "If you're going to get an appropriation." he stated, "get one big enough to do dairymen some good without leaving them in the middle of the stream without enough money for positive cows." Positive cows are those carrying the bacilli. While former State Senator William Curtis of Bridgewater, representing the 22.000 members of the State Grange, told the committee it should "find some appropriation," he added that $800,000 was a lot of I money for retrenchment legisla tion." "Don't ask for a large appropriation and take away from some other worthy cause," he pleaded. Hands raised at the conclusion of the hearing indicated that a majority of those present favored the measure. Introduced as a substitute, the bill provides that each animal classified as "positive" to Bang's Disease tests may, if the Commissioner, on Domestic Animals so determines, be killed, but only after its value has been determined by the owner. The valuation of any "positive" animal is restricted to $175 for a registered pure bred animal and $125 for a grade animal, and under the terms of the bill no indemnity would be paid until the premises are properly cleaned and disinfected in a manner to be prescribed by the commissioner. While permitting calfhood vaccination, the measure says nothing about adult vaccination, and it specifies that the use of all vaccine shall be subject to rules and regulations to be made by the commissioner. A fine of $100 is provided for persons using vaccine in violation of regulations. Opposition was also expressed to a bill permitting the Commissioner to designate a veterinarian engaged in work concerning the control of communicable diseases in domestic animals to perform necessary work when the owner has no preference, the veterinarian to be a resident of the same locality of the livestock owners. Several farmers asserted that the bill was designed to help 57 veterinarians "who want to hold their jobs." There was no opposition to a bill appropriating $10,000 for use of the commissioner in continuing a statewide program for the detection and elimination of infectious mastitis, $5000 for each year of the biennium ending June 30, 1941. The committee took no action on any bills heard Thursday. Glawackus Track Found In Andover (Continued from Page 1.) animal that size," he said. "I think that state game authorities should start a systematic hunt for the animal, planning a trap for it before it does some real damage. There was no game in the area where I followed the tracks for two miles and the beast must be getting hungry." Roberts said he picked up the tracks in Andover, about four miles directly east of the Diamond Lake region of Glastonbury, and followed them for about two mile.? as they appeared to be headed back for Diamond Lake, where several hunts have taken place. The tracks were probably made Wednesday morning, he said, and showed the animal walked along steadily, in a direct line as if it knew where it wanted to go and was going there. The stride, he said, was about two feet. He quit following the tracks as darkness came on Thursday but intends to go back into the same section again this week. The section, he said, has many deer in "normal" times but the snow which fell Wednesday morning showed no tracks of these animals. He deduced that no deer hangs around in the vicinity of a Glawackus. He saw no evidence that the animal had eaten but recalled that some weeks ago, when hunting in the same locality, he saw similar tracks and the remains of two rabbits. BEHIND THE The James Hanlcy Co., THE STANDARD OT EXCELLENCE SINCE 1876 Boulevard, Dike Plan Is Favored 5 (Continued from rage 1.) a portion of the Flood Commission's program for flood control of the Connecticut and Park rivers, with a traffic boulevard through Hartford atop and alongside the Connecticut River dikes. The $523,500 appropriation, approved by the Flood Commission, would make possible the erection of the North Meadows dike section with a width of 110 feet, rather than 15 feet as provided in the Army Engineer's plans for merely flood protective works. The greater width would offer space for construction on top of the dike of a four-lane highway. State May Share Cost. The appropriation does not Include funds for building the road, and the city itself has no intention of undertaking the highway construction. Since the enlarged dike would offer a right of way to the State w.thout cost, it is the Flood Commission's expectation that the State Highway Department will construct the road, using State or Federal funds. Even if the road is never built, the expenditure by the city would entail little loss, it was asserted at the hearing, since approximately $300,000 of the city appropriation would be expended in the construction of a concrete wall, 700 feet long, on the east side of the dike. While this wall is essential to highway construction, it would incidentally produce substantial savings in the city's cost of dike upkeep by combatting soil erosion, it was argued. Only a handful of spectators attended the hearing, and of these only two took any part in the discussion. Mayor Spellacy, members of the Flood Commission, and their engineers sought to emphasize that the city would save more than $200,000 by building the dike and boulevard section simultaneously. The $523,500 established as the city's share of cost is an "outside" figure, and any savings would be returned to the city. Charles J. Bennett, executive secretary of the Flood Commission, asserted. The Mayor said the United States Army Engineers, in charge of the dike construction program, must start the project, if it is to be started, before June 30, the end of their fiscal year. The Flood Commission is in favor of the project as "a business proposition." and feels the money for it should be advanced at this time, Chairman William H. Putnam of the Commission stated. Citing the benefits to be obtained from the work. Mr. Putnam said the commission felt there was "so much to gain and so little to lose." Charles A. Goodwin, member of the' commission, said that while the project was a "tremendous" one, there was no other solution to the city's traffic problem. Now is the time, he asserted, to obtain this solution "in the most perfect way and at the least cost." Hartford, he added, might lose the opportunity of getting a through traffic highway if it did not provide for it now. In response to questions from board members. Mr. Putnam said the commission's proposed $9,500,-000 program for flood control of the Connecticut and Park rivers will protect $140,000,000 of "visible" property. He predicted an increase in land values "the minute the dike is up." City Share Large. Mayor Spellacy brought out that the cost to Hartford will be from $4,COO,000 to $5,000,000, or a sum, he said, which will not exceed three-fourths of the loss suffered by the city in the 1936 flood. "The only unfortunate thing," he added, "is that it. will take three or four years to complete the dikes " The Mayor explained that the Armv Engineers and other Federal agencies will merely pay the cost of bare flood protection. Federal funds aggregating $5,350,000 will be spent on the Hartford program. Thus far the city has expended $650,000 for the North Meadows HANLEY LABEL Frovidence, R.

The East Hartford Scout was able to haul the man ashore and resuscitate him after two previous attempts by others, had failed. Carlton will act from the Canadian Boy Scouts Dike construction, and $90,000 for the work of the Flood Commission. James Jewett of 141- Elizabeth Street said the program "seems like a desirable thing." but questioned whether expenditure of the necessary funds by the city would increase the tax rate. Mayor Spellacy replied he could demonstrate that the tax rate would increase if the flood control program were not carried out. It was "inconceivable," he asserted, that the Colt's Patent Fire Arms Manufacturing Company, and other plants which have suffered enormous flood losses, would remain in Hartford in the face of continued flood damage. Samuel E. Harris, treasurer of the State Theater Corporation, described the flood losses suffered by his concern, and spoke in favor of construction of both the dikes and the boulevard. "If Holland can keep the ocean out, Hartford ought to be able to keep the Connecticut River out." he said.

Most political quarters, after a calculation of government supporters in the chamber, said there was little doubt that the government would win a vote of confidence. Joint recognition of Generalissimo PrancLsco Franco's regime as the Spanish government by France and Great Britain was expected to be granted after a French cabinet meeting called for Monday. The British decision, it was under stood here, had been made already and awaited only French action for simultaneous announcements by the two powers.
