NO MORE INTERESTING selection of a Federal official has yet been made than that of Mr. Joseph Kennedy, of Boston, as member and presumptive chairman of the Federal Commission to regulate the Stock Exchange. It is also understood that Mr.

Kennedy will administer the Securities Act. Thus he becomes one of the most important men in the country. JOSEPH PATRICK ALOYSIUS KENNEDY is a Boston financier who has made a lot of money.

KENNEDY is about 46 years old It was not a certificate of compliance such as Mr. Ford must sign if he had: Approved the Frazier-Lemke Farm Moratorium Act, and issued a public defense of his action. Approved the Railroad Pension Act and also defended that action in a public statement. Appointed a National Labor Board to give effect to the labor disputes resolution. Appointed the new aviation commission to study air-mail reforms and aviation in general.

Such a certificate of compliance not only attests that the Roosevelt views, Mr. Kennedy, along with Henry Morgenthau, Colonel signer is complying with the code for House and Mr. Straus of Macy's, was his industry but also pledges him to continue complying with that code and the regulations made under it by its administrators, the code authority, one of four to put up 510,000 each to finance the pre-convention Roosevelt campaign.

Appointed Stock Exchange Commission composed of Joseph P. Kennedy, Ferdinand Pecora, James M. Landis, George C. Matthews and Robert E. Healy.

Named Eugene O. Sykes, of Mississippi, as chairman of Federal Communications Commission. Veto Of Farm Act Was Expected Of all of these Presidential acts, the approval of the farm bankruptcy measure is perhaps the most important and certainly the most significant. Mr. Roosevelt had been counted upon in most quarters to veto it, first because it was never on the Admin-, istration legislative program, and next 1 because of what its opponents regard as its extreme radicalism.

He is liberal in his he said, that the company "would con views, but there were things about tinue to comply with all the pertinent provisions of the code, subject at all Hitler Wants Storm Troops Filled With Idea Oj Obedience By the Associated Press Chancellor Adolf Hitler "It is my wish that the Storm Troops shall be transformed into a faithful mirl strong link iu tlio chain constituting the National Socialist movement.

National Socialist TARrr, in a statement: "Dcr Fuehrer delivered a speech before the higher Storm Troop leaders who had come together at Munich, in whicli he laid emphasis on his unshakable adhesion to the Storm Troops, but at the same time announced his determination henceforth to mercilessly slump out and destroy creatures who were without discipline and obedience as well as elements tlmt are anti-social or ahnormal. lie pointed out that service in the Storm Troops was an honor for which tens of thousands of fine Storm Troops men had made the heaviest sacrifices.

Victor Lutze, new commander of the Storm Troops "These three virtues shall now, more than ever, become the guiding star for the whole Storm Troops: Lnquestlonlng fidelity, the sharpest discipline, the sacrificial spirit of bravery. Thus we, who are National Socialists, will march together.

Also there were certain New Dealers he did not like. One of his pet aversions is Mr. Louis McHenry Howe, closest of all men to the President. Mr. Kennedy wanted no office for himself and had no political aspirations.

He is the the letter and was quoting it from compromising, smashed a revolt in the Third Reich today with swift retaliation that took the lives of high oppositionists to his rule. Over all Germany tonight, however with troops and machine gunners, rifle-carrying police and guards on patrol there was suspense, fear, apprehension over a civil war or at least a revolution within the ranks of the National Socialist (Nazi) party. HITLER'S POWER UNDISPUTED For the present, Hitler held undisputed power. In a day of summary punishment for those who challenged his authority the denouement of the crisis' of recent weeks, hastened by the disclosure of immoral orgies indulged in by leaders of his own Nazi Storm Troops the Chancellor "liquidated" leaders of a threefold opposition the reactionary Monarchists, the "Calholic Action" group and the Left' Wing Storm Troopers who plotted his end. Two of the dead were charged with plotting with a "foreign power" to end the Hitler regime.

FORMER CHANCELLOR KILLED They were Kurt von Schleicher, former Chancellor who wanted to restore the monarchy. He was killed with Frau von Schleicher when they resisted arrest at their country home near Babelsberg, outside Berlin. Capt. Ernst Roehm, the commander of the Storm Troops, for years Hitler's close friend. He was arrested, deposed, accused of immoral practices that brought shame to the Nazi movements.

He committed suicide. There was no further statement on the "foreign power." Representations earne to the German Foreign Office from at least one embassy asking that the "conspiring" power be named so that other embassies in Berlin might no longer be under suspicion.
