TWO MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, MARCH 9 1936 the diplomatic gallery. Ray Atherton counselor of embassy, represented the United States. Norman H Davis, the United States ambassador-at-large, also listened to Eden's address. Eden said he bad protested d rectly to Ambassador von Hoesch against Germany's reoccupation of the Rhineland and that he had stated the effect upon British public opinion would be deplorable. "I told the ambassador," said Eden, "that I deeply regretted he had given me no indication about tie action the German government was taking in respect to the demilitarized zone and I stated that it amounted to. a unilateral repudiation of a treaty freely negotiated and freely signed." The minister told the legislators that the course taken by the German government "complicates and aggravates the International situation." Greeted With Cheers. "The abrogation of the Locarno pact and the occupation of the demilitarized zone," declared Eden, "have profoundly, shaken confidence in any engagement in which the government of Germany may in the future enter." This statement was" greeted with cheers by the members. At the same time he declared this warning, Eden indicated that Great Britain was willing to consider Reichsfuebrer Hitler's proposals for new peace covenants. He said Great Britain would examine them clear sightedly and objectively to determine their merits. He declared: "One of the important foundations of the peace of western Europe has been cut away, and if peace is to be obtained, there is a manifest duty to rebuild." Aid Country Attacked. "In case there should be any misunderstanding about our position as the signator of the Locarno pact," said Eden, "his majesty's government thinks it necessary to say that should there take place during the period which will be necessary for consideration of the new situation which hag arisen any actual attack upon France or Belgium, which would constitute a violation of article 2 of the Locarno pact, his majesty's government, notwithstanding- the German repudiation of the treaty, would regard themselves as in honor bound to come, in the manner provided in the treaty, to the assistance of the country attacked." As Eden made this declaration, the house of commons was silent, every member and every other spectator leaned forward, straining to hear every syllable of the pronouncement. 126 FRENCH SEE DEMANDS tOB "JUSTICE" BLOCKED Copyrlght, 1938, by The Associated Press) PARIS--French officials declared Monday that a war with Germany to oust Hitler's troops from the .Rhineland was impossible --'-'·- ; :arid- that .Great Britain's ^apparent sympathy with the reichsfuehrer's peace offers blocked the French demands for "justice." They said France was "strong in her right," but that she still' believes in collective security--that is, joint action by allied nations. Bitterly Disappointed The speech made Monday afternoon by Anthony Eden, the British foreign secretary, in the house of commons, aroused exclamations of bitter disappointment in the French atmosphere of profound gloom. Officials said that France had relied .upon the loyalty of her allies, the little entente of Yugoa- slavia. Czechoslovakia and Rumania, and upon her newly-found friend, Russia. But, they said. France, even with the major portion of her "iron ring around Germany." must hesitate to take drastic action "if Great Britain deserts us." No Sanctions Seen. They added that it was obvious from Eden's declaration in the house of commons that the idea of imposing sanctions against Germany was eliminated. His declaration in favor of examining Hitler's peace offer, which brought applause from the members of the house, was regarded as England's policy. Such an examination was specifically rejected by Premier Sarraut last night and officials commented that Eden knew of this rejection when he spoke. HEAVILY ARMED FORCES FACING EACH OTHER (Copyright, 1036, by The Asnoelntcd PreM) BERLIN,--Heavily armed forces of French and German troops faced each other across the Rhine from Strasbourg nearly to Basel as the nazi foreign office balked at league of nations efforts to uphold the Locarno treaty. Thousands of French troops continued to take strategic positions on the left bank of the Rhine, strengthening their steel and concrete frontier posts with heavy artillery and barbed wire. · On the right bank the nazi troopers who marched in Saturday as Adolf Hitler denounced the mutual security treaty maintained their military encampments. A foreign office spokesman In Berlin discussed frankly Germany's rotation at the manner in which she · had been notified of the special league council session Friday .0 consider French and Belgian pro- .ests to reoccupation of the Rhine- and. Thia spokesman deelared Germany must have a formal invita- ion to the council meeting in a nazi delegate is expected to sit in on the' discussions. As far as could be learned, the only notification to nazi headquar- ers came from Joseph Avenol, eague secretary-general, which merely told of the time of the meeting and.gave Germany an opportunity to make arrangements to at- ten'd if she felt so inclined....: ,' , · AUTO MISHAPS KILL 7 IN IOWA Past Week's Toll Increases "Death Total for 1936 to 58.

GODFREY TALKS TO FARM GO-OP Discusses Soil Conservation Conference at Rockwell Society Meeting. ROCKWELL -- George Godfrey, assistant to the president of Iowa State college at Ames, who had just returned from, the midwest conference on the'federal soil conserva-: tion program at" Chicago, was the main speaker at the annual meeting of the Farmers Co-Operative society here Saturday afternoon. While confining his address to a discussion of "The Building of a Community," Mr. Godfrey conversed freely with farm leaders of the county here on the soil conference. Have to Compromise. "As I see it the big thing that came out of that conference in Chicago was the fact that every mid- west state, whose representatives came to the meeting with some proposal of its own, learned that there must be compromise and will be in a more recipient mood toward any program that is adopted," Mr. Godfrey stated. "While the program considered for final adoption when I left provided for payments to increase the raising of soil building crops, it did not contain the provisions for adap- :ing the program to individual soil types such as contained in tie Iowa proposal." New Program Better. The general feeling among those in attendance at the conference, Mr. Godfrey stated, was that the supreme court had "kicked the farm program upstairs" and that the soil conservation program now in the making is better permanent solution of the farm problem than the AAA. Emphasis on the need of co-operation for the building of communities was emphasized by Mr. Godfrey in his address at the meeting. "In our enthusiasm to make communities big we have emphasized commercial growth and forgot some of the traits of the pioneers who knew the value of co-operation," he said. "We got to the point where we measured a community by the number of boots and shoes that were sold, the length of its streets and the type of lights it had, forgetting none of these was the significant thing." Pickford IB Speaker. Recognition of youth, getting the young members of the community interested in Us activities, is highly essential, Mr. Godfrey stated. Other speakers were Arthur Pickford, Globe-Gazette farm editor; County Agent Marion E. Olson, Senator William McArthur, Fred Stover and the Rev. Hillman, Methodist minister. The society re-elected H. J. Brown, Olaf Peterson and Frank Sturgis to the board. The directors re-elected Reuben Holman, president; Dan Cahalan, vice president, and Joe Gallagher, secretary-treasurer. Mr. Holman presided at the meeting. A lunch was served at noon. The statement of the society showed it did a total business of $191,258.33 in 1935. RADIO PROGRAM tVOI STATION, AMES TUESDAY.

Sees Need of Railroads to Co-Operate CHICAGO. (/PI--A policy of greater co-operation and co-ordination was urged upon railroads Monday by Joseph B. Eastman, federal co-ordinator of transportation. Addressing the Chicago Traffic c l u b s h o r t l y a f t e r President Roosevelt had requested management and labor to reach a n agreement of rail unification, he said: "The time has come to set the railroad house in order and take every practical step in the direction of maximum · e f f i- cicncy a n d econ.* i omv i n ooera- JosephB,Eastman Jj^Jj,. He cKca a report indicating unification of terminal facilities in the Chicago area would result in a net saving of as much as $10,000,000 per year without allowing for possible compensation of displaced em- ployes and declared there were "hundreds of similar opportunities throughout the country." Pointing to obstacles raised by operators and workers, he added: · "We shall be guilty of grave error If we allow sympathy for the em- ployes to blind our eyes to the future. From the standpoint of the employes, the right time to make changes is when traffic is on the rise and new business will permit the absorption of those who are displaced. The managements can well afford to offer a reasonable measure of protection and compensation for those who may be temporarily displaced. "Water carriers," he said, "cannot be left free to do as they please while their railroad competitors are subject to close restraint." Dog Saves Family in Waterloo From Gas WATERLOO, t^i--zipper, is months old, Boston terrier, was a hero Monday in the home of John W.

STRIKE Labor Head Assails Realty Conditional Acceptance of Peace Plan. NEW YORK, OP)-- Criticizing the realty interests' conditional acceptance of Mayor LaGuardia's peace plan, James J. Bambrick, leader of the building workers' strike, Monday declared "there is no other answer but to fight to the bitter end." The reply to the realty advisory board to Mayor LaGuardia's four point peace plan was full of stipulations, Bambrick said, and "conditioned the peace formula to death." "The reply was dishonest and insincere,", he added. "There is no other answer but to fight to the bitter end, and the union will hurl its entire force today." Bambrick went ahead with plans to call workers out of loft and office buildings in the important grand central zone, and to extend the strike to Brooklyn and Queens. Investigate Tip of Scheme to Kidnap Dempsey Daughter ATLANTIC CITY, N. J., Officers investigated Monday an anonymous "tip" purporting to disclose a plot to kidnap Jack Dempsey's 19 months old daughter, Joan Hannah. Whether the "tip" was accurate, the officers were unprepared ts say. Acting Captain of Detectives James Farley asserted, '"it is probably the work of a crank." The child, however, was placed under guard at a hotel here where she is staying with her mother.
