'TWO MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE FEBRUARY 19 1934 WALLACE WARNS FARMERS OF U. S, Says Nationalistic Trend to Mean Compulsory System of Quotas. WASHINGTON, Feb. 19. GW-The secretary of agriculture warned' American farmers today that that will find themselves working imdSr a compulsory quota system unless tariffs are sharply cut and the trend toward nationalism is checked. Secretary Wallace, writing- an article for .the foreign policy association and the world peace foundation, indicated the government controls worked out under the new deal do not hold a candle to what may happen if the things he warns against really come to pass. The Roosevelt administration, he said, has "applied only the barest sort of social discipline which a completely determined nationalism requires." Economic nationalism, he added, will have these results: "Compulsory control of marketing, licensing .of plowed land, quotas for every farmer, a unanimity of opinion and disciplined action even greater than that which we experienced in the years 1917-19, the permanent retirement of from 40 to 100 million acres of crop land from cultivation, the shifting of millions of people from the farms of the south." · Wallace said an international policy bent on regaining world trade would require drastic lowering of tariff barriers and acceptance by the United States of a billion dollars more of goods than it bought from other nations in 1929.

Only the second son, Prince Charles, was with the queen until last midnight when Prince Leopold and his wife arrived from Switzerland. Their sorrowful meeting took place in the queen's private apartments in the palace at Laeken. For the next three days, the crown prince and princess are~expected to maintain privacy Insofar as possible--the princess particularly. It is unlikely that she will appear In public. Will Take Oath. Prince Leopold will take the oath of fidelity to the constitution before a joint meeting of the chamber and the senate Friday. Afterward, he will be proclaimed king and, with completion of that act. Princess Astrid automatically will become queen. In the castle awaiting rempva! to Brussels, the body of the king lay today in a bed of rosewood, strewn with white lilacs, a heavy bandage around the head. The face was unmarked, except "or two cuts over the right eye. The lips were parted slightly, the light moustache was trimmed neatly. The oody was dressed in the olive unl» form of a general. King Greatly Loved. Everywhere today people were still talking almost as though they could not-believe the tragedy actually had occurred. The grief of the working classes was heightened by recollections of many kindnesses. Laborers recalled how he bad visited their louses when touring" the country or Inspecting factories'and mines. Among thousands of people lining up at the palace in Brussels to sign a register all citizens eager to give testimony of their loyalty to the king arid family an engineer said: "The king never missed shaking hands with the engine driver who piloted the royal "train, and several of us had the honor to assist him occasionally in piloting the engine --which was' one of his hobbles-and which earned him the nickname "The King in Overalls." , Future Rulers Popular. Both the future rulers are popular with the people of Belgium. When he was only 14, the prince, Duke of Brabant, volunteered as a common soldier in the World ,war. His popularity has increased steadily throughout the years. The new queen, who is expecting e.bira of a third child this spring-, has been well liked by all since their marriage--"a real IOVP match," the world called to.--in 1926. Their two chUdren are'-. Princess Josephine dharlbtte, 6,' arid Prince Baudouin, 3, who becomes heir to the throne: "All Is Finished." BRUSSELS, Belgium, Feb. 19. UP --"Alt is finished!"'--a phrase breathed so low as to be almost inaudible--was uttered over and over again today by the distraught Queen Elizabeth of Belgium as she mourned the death of the king. This was revealed by persons close-to the queen as they sought to comfort her. They said she was almost overcome with grief and was unable to control her feelings. Intimates of the .royal family at Suburban Laeken, site of the castle, declined to give details, however, of the heartrending scene which marked the first meeting of the royal son and his mother upon Prince Leopold's arrival from Switzerland last night.

Asked if he had-anything to do with airmail contracts while in this job, Brown said he had paid no attention to them. "MacCracken was/subordinate to you, was he'not?" Black asked. "I wouldn't say so." "During my term as postmaster general, twenty ocean mail contracts were awarded by open competitive bidding, with the formal approval of an inter-departmental committee created by President Hoover, consisting of the secretary of commerce, the secretary of the navy, the chairman 'of the shipping board and the postmaster general," Brown said in his statement. All But One. "All but one of these contracts were let to the lowest responsible bidder whose proposal met the specifications. The one contract which was awarded to the high bidder was so awarded at the request of congrss set forth in a joint resolution duly adopted. "By the terms of these contracts the ocean mall contractors ; were compelled to expend substantially all of their mall pay on the construction of new vessels.

JAPAN PROBES CHINA REPORTS Hears Part of U. S. Loans Used in Expansion of Airdromes. TOKIO, Feb. 19. W)--Reports that a portion of America's 550,000,300 cotton and wheat loan to China is being used in the expansion of Chinese airdromes at Foochow and Amoy will be the subject shortly of Japanese diplomatic representations to China, it was learned today. A Japanese foreign office spokesman said Akira Ariyoshi, minister to China, had been instructed to seize an early opportunity to ask the Nanking National government to confirm or deny the reports. Will Warn China, In the event of confirmation, the spokesman said, Ariyoshi will warn China that such use of foreign funds violates China's pledge not to employ borrowed money In military establishments along the Fukien province coast. The spokesman said that many reports concerning Fukien air base,* had reached Toklo "from Jananese consuls and agents in other departments of the Japanese government." One of these, he asserted, was that "officers of an American gunboat lying off Foochow during the recent disturbances (in Fukien province) went ashore and inspected proposed airdrome extension plans. Report Secret Treaty. Koki Hirota, foreign minister, told the house of peers Feb. 6 that Japan was endeavoring to learn whether a, secret treaty exists between the United States and China which obliges Americans to assist in China's aviation development. At the same time, replying to a question by Atsushl Akaike, Hirota added that efforts ware also being- made to determine whether American financial participation in the new airlines southward from Shanghai constitutes a violation of China's old promises to Japan not to alienate any portion of the Fukien seacoast.
