4 THE HARTFORD DAILY COURANT: SUNDAY, AUGUST 18, 1940. French Move For Control Of Industry Petain Regime Approves Act to Disband Directing: Croups Such as Comite des Forges Virhy, France, Auk. 17. (AP. In a far-reaching step to end the liberal economy in France and establish solid state control, the retain poverament approved today a lw authorizing the disbandment of "superimposed" directing groups that for many years have controlled French industry. The biggest and best known of such groups Is the Comite des Forges, a powerful metals and f rmaments combine frenquently attacked in the Leftist press in pre- tr days. The new law affects all branches of industry. The government will have the option of leaving or destroying such orsan'tations. as it sees fit, and l?o the po"er to dissolve the bit: labor unions and employers' professional syndicates. The new setup in effect put big Industrial powers and labor czars and monopolies out of business. Banking, the insurance business and commerce come under the same form of control. Individual organization committees to be set un for each branch of activity and made up of employers and workers will requisition and distribute materials and personnel, inflict punishments, control prices and regulate commercial exchanges. All this will be under careful su-! pervision of the government, which reserves to itself the role of super-planner of the country' economic and industrial life.

Mrs. George Chapman and her son, Hairy Chapman observed but a few miles from the Chapman house that it last was seen. One resident claimed to have shot the Glawackus and buried it stating that it was a big tawny dog that had been running wild. There have been numerous reports, however, that the animal never was shot and has been hiding in the thick woods. Most people have laughed at such suggestions. a survey of the woodlands In with you tonight and start you onjbaek.

"But, like a great many other Americans, I saw war at first hand in 1917. I know what war can do to demoralize civil liberties at home. And I believe it to be the first duty of a President to try to maintain peace." Willkle came to Callaway Park, through which he used to drive cows for 75 cents a week, after a hot trip from Rushville, Ind., the home town of Mrs. Wlllkie. He was greeted by cheering throngs as he drove through the streets of Elwood. A crowd shouted with glee as he stood on the steps of his old high school, under an inscription reading "the hope of our country," and said, "There'll be a hot time in the old town tonight."

I gathered that he meant two full revolutions on a 70-degree bank, which for impractical purposes is practically straight up and down, mostly down from the left side of the ship. "Go into 'em slowly, feel your way," he said as he dropped the right wing, pulled the nose up, and started pivoting around an invisible point way way down below. I followed him through a couple to the right and the left. It makes a lot of difference in a steep bank in a side-by-side job whether you're sitting on the right or left side.

He said the government "has a responsibility to equalize the lot of the farmer with that of the manufacturer." "If this cannot be done bv narltv ;of prices," he added, "other means i must be found with the least possible regimentation of the farmer's affairs." He said the New Deal "stands for doing what has to be done by spending as much money as possible," but that he proposes "to do it by spending as little money as passible. This is one great issue In domestic policy and I propose in this campaign to make it clear." "We must regain prosperity, restore the independence of our people and protect our defensive forces," he said. If this Is not done promptly, we are in constant danger. If it is done no enemy on earth dare attack us. I propose to do it." Festive Atmosphere. A festive atmosnhere Drevailed.

Opposed Principles. "I make this (debate) proposal respectfully to a man upon whose shoulders rest the cares of the state," Willkie continued. "But I make it in dead earnest." The 48-years-old nominee "the home-town-boy-whowmade-goori" shook hands with many old friends and often turned to shout, "Hi Bill:" "Hi Joe." Willkie sipped water at frequent intervals during his speech. Sun rays pierced the foliage of surrounding trees and DersDiration poured down his face. Often Willkie gestured with one! forefinger extended, a mannerism, which reminded some of his old friends of his davs as a school teacher. 1 The conclusion of his address! brought another long outburst of! cheering and applause.

If you hold your right hand out straight, then arc your head to the right, in a banking angle and then to the left you can see what I mean. The wind was from the south last night and we were headed into it, at least when Al got through dem onstrating. Each time you do double turn like that, being right over the Connecticut, you see the river five times in all since it runs south. The first time I tried a 720 to the right, I S8w so much river I thought we were having a flood and overshot the double-circle. The second time the whole thing seemed slower to me, although it couldn't have been, and I leveled out too soon. There's a lot more pressure on the wings in the 720-power turn than anything else I've had a crack at to date and consequently I felt the pull of the stick an awful lot more when I tried to hold it back to keep the nose up. I dropped a couple of hundred feet In two tries. Even then, I pulled the nose up before I dropped the wing which is regarded as poor form in most stalling circles. 720-s are a lot of fun but they are going to take just as much practice. You don't feel dizzy or anything like that going around in two circles but you feel as though your haggish seventh grade arithmetic teacher were firmly pushing you back into your seat.

Willkie said "yes." "You all know that I accepted at Philadelphia the nomination ot the Republican Party for President," he told the crowds today which came to hear his answer to formal notification that the party had selected him for its standard bearer. "The ceremony of an acceptance speech is a tradition of our pioneer past, before the days of rapid communication," he said. "But I take pride in the traditions and not in change for the mere sake of overthrowing precedents." 1 He described an acceptance speech now as a "candidate's keynote, a declaration of his broad principles."
