51; TWO MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, MARCH 10 1936 problems of the strength ot righ against might." In Similar Flea. At the same time ,Yvon Delbx minister of justice, made a simila plea to the senate. Premier Sarraut declared that Reichsfuehrer Hitler was justifie in violating th« Locarno treat "then we must turn resolutely t ward military alliances and arm: ment racea and, let us admit frankly, to war made by the stron when the time favors." Taking hia cue from Hitler, "wh spoke to the French people over th head of their government," Sarrau talked "to the German people." He asked the Germans "if yo . would have confidence in Franc signing new treaties if she had jus torn up old ones? How, then, ca tie French have confidence in th fresh negotiations that German proposes?" Domlnanted by Violence. The premier declared that Franc "does not refuse negotiations tha make for peace in the future," bu "cannot treat when dominated b ·violence and when signatures ar repudiated." He said that France was resolvei "to join all her strength to that o other members within the leagu and to reply to the veritable assults on international confidence, faith in treaties, collective security, an" peace." , "France," he said, "is ready to treat with Germany once respec for international law has again been assured, x x x "The future of European peace is at stake." Sarraut outlined the history o the signing of the Locarno pact and of British and French efforts to organize peace machinery during the last year, but stated that Hitler lei it be known, "first, that he woulc hesitate long before signing and that he never would sign." Burst Into Cheers. The deputies burst into cheers when Sarraut referred to "the profound impression of horror" France had received from the World war. Ee said that Hitler himself had declared that the peaceful settlement of the Saar Basin territory, returned to Germany by plebiscite was, "the last important difference between France and Germany." Then, Sarraut went on, two months later the reichsfuehrer denounced the arms clauses of the Versailles treaty. The premier declared that what Hitler had done "no nation could accept so long as there is justice." PLEAS AND PRAYERS By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Statesmen's pleas, people's prayers and the measured tread of marching men' echoed in Europe Tuesday--the clamorous anti-climax of naai Germany's armed watch on the Rhine. . , In the; historic i clock-Toom of; " Paris'::Qu'ii?b:Orsay^ :: France's:'*orr: eign minister, Pierre-EHenne Flandin, sat around a table with the diplomats of Locarno powers--Britain, Italy, Belgium. Flandin, after a three hour fight, failed to pbtain British support for the French proposal that Reichs- fuebrer Hitler be compelled to re- niove his troops from the Rhineland. Fights in Vain. He fought in vain to gain Great Britain's support for the French government's demand that the Rhineland again be demilitarized or that Germany suffer punishment. Anthony Eden, the British foreign secretary, argued for a thorough examination of Hitler's peace offers before any drastic. steps be considered in the league of nations. Eden and the other two conferees, Premier Paul .Van Zeeland of Belgium and Ambassador Vittorio Cerruti of Italy, heard Flandin uphold the stand of Albert Sarraut, France's premier, that France would refuse "to negotiate under a menace." The French representative demanded the German army be withdrawn from the Hhineland before any negotiations should be undertaken with Hitler. To Meet Friday. The -four conferee* and their 22 advisers agreed that there would be no decision until they meet at Geneva Friday just before the league of nations' council session. The advisers said the experts would continue conferences through the remainder of the day and prob ably tomorrow. In the meantime, French source: said, Flandin hoped to marshal other league council members to thi French viewpoint. British advisers said that Eden expected that the present exchang of views and two days of reflection would convince the French tha they should proceed cautiously in the demand for sanctions agains Germany which might lead to war Keep Powder Dry. France kept her powder dry. Ne« armed thousands moved into the teeming, underground forts that lie between the republic and the naz reich. Anti-aircraft guns scowled from hilltops, manned 24: hours a day. Airplanes droned overhead. In France's regained border provinces, simple folk remembered 191' --and before. They crowded the parish churches, women and children and men, to pray. Rumors flew--one that the imperial German regiments stationed in Alsace be fore the great war had been revived in der fuehrer's Rhineland army. Across the frontier, as corps commanders viewed the in-marching reichswehr, it became apparent the army was no collection of toys. A heavy artillery battery showed up in a slaughter yard; a machine gun company was discovered at Bonn Some said tanks, armored cars had moved in under cover of night Elated at British View. Nazi Germany expressed officia elation at the British view towar the Hitler proposals for a new kinc of peace, as well as toward the march on the Rhine.

League of nations officials, pointing toward Friday's council meeting on a Franco-Belgtan appea against the German coup, saw in Eden's Monday speech a hint that anti-German sanctions are unlike- y- Between Tivo Foes. These officials did, however, attach high importance to the British foreign secretary's declaration that his empire would "march with France and Belgium," should Germany violate the borders of either. London saw Britain as back again in the position of interme- liary between two bitter foes. King Edward VUL alert to every international move, called in the leaders of his government What they alked about remained unknown. Germany and Italy signed an agreement of relatively minor im- ortance in Rome. Fascists said taly had not yet made up her mind on what her policy will be.

CHARITON FIRE COSTS $50,000 40 Automobiles Destroyed as Garage Is Swept by Flames. CHARITON, £·»--Fire s w e p t through the Larimer garage here ealry Monday, destroying- 40 automobiles and doing damage estimated at $50,000. More than 30 volunteer firemen fought the flames with four hose lines, but the fire, fed by tank after tank of gasoline, and oil and grease, leaped through the biulding, leaving only the wall shell standing. A fire wall between the Larimer garage and the Ream Motor company next door balked the flames from spreading into that building. Two Story Structure. The burned garage, owned by William Schriver of Chariton, was a two story structure. The used cars and a paint shop were on the second floor. New cars, a repair shop and the office occupied the first floor. Flames were eating through the roof when the fire was discovered shortly before 3 a. m. Firemen and others pushed four new cars out of the building but had no chance to save the second hand automobiles on the second floor as their gaso- ine tanks started exploding shortly after the fire was discovered. A short on one car set off the horn which hooted for an hour, add- ing to the din of crackling flames, explosions, shouts and falling debris, Move Four Families. Authorities moved ' four families from a nearby apartment house, fearing several barrels of oil in the garage might explode. They also evacuated the stock of the Ream Motor company, and ran out "Old Betsy," an 1873 model steam pum- per fire engine, but these precautions proved unnecessary. Hugh Larimer, mayor of Chariton and operator of the burned garage, said the loss would be $50,000, $25,000 to his-stock, $25,000 to the building. SEETlRTNEW DEAL DECISIONS Securities Act Argued in High Court; Congress Studies Taxes. WASHINGTON, JFi--Two more new deal enactments moved nearer supreme court decisions Tuesday as congress studied taxes and heard an official defense of work relief by Senator Robinson (D-Ark). In briefs filed with the high court, Washington state defended and a West Virginia coal operator attacked the Guffey soft coal 'control bill. Up for immediate argument before the justices was the administration's 1933 securities act, A prelude to Robinson's speech was an attack by Secretary Ickes on opponents of the $78,000,000 public works program in the municipal power field. He told newsmen the Central Ver- mont Public Service corporation had offered to pay expenses incurred in connection with a PWA allotment to Brandon, Vermont, and to reduce its street lighting bill--provided the allotment was dropped. Senator Robinson took the senate floor a few hours after Senator Black (D-Ala.) made a speech slashing at the American Liberty league for its onslaught on the senate lobby committee's activities. Replies to Shouse., Black replied to recent statements of Jouett Shouse, Liberty league president, that the lobby committee's "seizure" of a mass of telegrams constituted "government terrorism." Denying the committee had examined any wires of a private character. Black accused the Liberty league of fighting- the utility holding company control bill, and then trying to keep its activities secret. He said the "real opposition" to the committee comes from "those who want to work in darkness." The tax bill remained in the embryonic stage in a house subcommittee, but the democratic majority of the ways and means committee had given conditional approval to President Roosevelt's plan for a drastic tax on undistributed corporation profits. Should Be Modified. They stipulated that the plan should be modified to protect corporations in laying aside sufficient reserves to "cushion" the concerns in lean years. Bitterly opposing this change, administration advisers contend corporations could easily accumulate reasonable reserves under the president's program, 'without modification. Senate' leaders planned to go ROOSEVELT AND KNOX SUPPORTED New Hampshire Has Results of First Presidential Primary. CONCORD, N. H., (/P)--New Hampshire led the nation Tuesday with the first statewide presidential primary.
