MOSCOW, March 24.--A charge .that a Russian school library has .been seized by authorities in Man- .chukuo has been made the basis of ' a new soviet protest. A dispatch from Khabarovsk, U. S. S. R., reported last night that the Manchukuo education department and police had seized "for inspection" 10,000 volumes in a raid on the school, a technical institution at Harbin. The school is operated by the Russian administration of the Chinese Eastern railway for soviet employes. ; In his protest, Julius Rudy, the soviet manager of the railway, said the Manchukuo department of education would be held responsible for all damages. 14 ARE DEAD AND · 80 HURT IN FIRE (Continued From Page 1) spouting from the 'windows and turned in an alarm.

I STUDY CHARGES OF COMMUNISM (Continued From 1'uge 1) when Uncle Sam becomes our financier he must also follow his money with control and management. In Middle of Stream. "The most surprising statement made to me was the following: 'We believe that we have Mr. Roosevelt in the middle of a swift stream and that the current is so strong that he cannot turn back or escape from it." " 'We believe that we can keep Mr. Roosevelt there until we are ready to supplant him with a Stalin. We all think that Mr. Roosevelt is only the Korensky of this revolution.' "When I asked why the president would not see through this scheme, they replied: 'We are on the inside. We can control the avenues of influence. We can make the president believe that he is making decisions for himself.' Must Appear Strong. "They said, 'a leader must appear to be a strong man of action. He must make -decisions and many times make them quickly, whether good or bad. Soon he will feel .a superhuman flow of power from the flow of decisions themselves--good or bad. Eventually he can be easily displaced because of his bad decisions. With Mr. Roosevelt's background we do not expect him to see this revolution .through.' "They said that such individuals can be induced to kindle the fires of revolution. But strong men must take their place when the country is once engulfed in flames. "I asked how they would explain to the American' people why their plans for retarding the recovery were not restoring recovery. 'Oh,' they said, 'that would be easy.' Finger on Scorn. "All that they would need to do would be to point the finger of scorn at the traitorous opposition. These traitors in the imaginary war against the depression would be made the goats. And the American people would agree that they, the brain trusters, should be more firm in dealing with the opposition. "Thus they, -the brain trusters, would soon be able to use the police power of the government and 'crack down' on the opposition with.a big stick. In the meantime they would extend the gloved hand and keep the 'big stick' in the background. "I was frankly told that I underestimated the power of propaganda. That, since the World war, propaganda had been developed into a science. That they could make the newspapers and magazines beg for mercy by threatening to take away much of their advertising by a measure to compel only the unvarnished truth in advertising'. · Shown Up as Crooks. "That they could make the financiers be good by showing up at public investigations the. crooks in the game. And that the power of public investigation, in their own , hands alone' would: make.' the ,cold'ichills run'up and down the--spines; of, the pffier, :Busihess' leaders cand. politicians--^honest' men . as well. .as crooks.-' : ··.-:' '' '· ·. ·:- -'' · .· ·'· "- ' "They were sure that they could depend, upon the psychology 'of empty, stomachs and they would keep them empty. The masses would soon agree that anything should be done rather than nothing. Any escape from present miseries would be welcome even though it should turn out to be another misery. "They were sure that the leaders of industry and labor could be kept quiet by the. hope of getting their own share of the government doles in the form of loans, and contracts for material and labor--provided they were subservient. Schools in Line. WOMAN INJURED IN COLLISION Mrs. H. C. Rose Unconsciou Following Accident; Cars Damaged. Mrs. H. C.

Johnny Dundee Hurt by Hit-and-Run Car Driver Near to Home WEST ORANGE, N. J., March 24. IS)--Johnny Dundee, · former world's featherweight champion, was injured today by a hit-and-run auto driver.

I Tribune. "They were sure that the colleges and schools would be kept in line by the hope of federal aid until the many new dealers in the schools and colleges had control of them. "They were sure that their propaganda could inflame the masses against the old social order and the honest men as well as the crooks that represent that order. "I asked what they would do when the government could no longer dole out relief in the grand manner. By that time, it was answered, the oft-repeated exhortation to industry and commerce to make jobs out. of confidence and to produce goods and pay wages out of psychology, together with their other propaganda, would have won the people to the idea that the only way out was for government itself to operate industry and commerce. Could Win Farmers. "They were certain that they did not want to' operate agriculture for a long time. But the farmers could be won by doles to support government operation of industry and commerce. "Farmers would be delighted to get their hands in the public trough for once in the history of the country. "The farmers would .be one with the masses--united for a redistribution of the wealth of the other fellow. All that they would need to do with the opposition would be to ask, 'Well, what is your plan?'

CD- It's Andrew W. Mellon's birthday anniversary today, 'and nobody se'ems to know how old he is. · When his name first appeared in Who's Who in 1918 the birth year was given as 1852, which would make him 82. Mellon stole a couple of laps when the date appeared as 1854 in 1922 after he was made secretary of the treasury. That would make him only 80. And now his Pittsburgh associates say the real date is 1855. The financier, in Aiken, S. Car., with his daughter, Mrs. D. K. E. Bruce, is reported not to be worrying over the question.

"The public should know that this refusal on the part of the union t say whom the union represents i the same Issue of union dominatioi in-another form. Fear Discrimination. "The union said that if it tell the manufacturers whom it repre sents, there will be discrimination againjt union members. On the con trary tie manufacturers hav agreed to an Impartial board to pass on any cases of alleged discrimin ation and to have its finding re viewed by a board created by NRA Thus, there is no warrant for th unions' claims that there will bt discrimination."

BEAT BRITAIN HAS NEXT MOVE tote From France on Arms Leaves Things About as They Were. LONDON, March 24. UP)--It was ; reat Britain's move todav in the Europewide exchange of visits and otes in the drive toward an accord n arms. A French note to London made ublic last night was regarded as aving left things pretty much as hey were. Some took a more pessimistic iew, seeing in the Paris commun- cation a blunt rejection of the Brit- sh proposals to which the note relied. Many predicted the early demise of the disarmament conference t Geneva. Initiate New Moves. SUB, although considering- the ote, vague and inconclusive, the ritish government was expected to nitiate new moves to break the ranco-German deadlock. The administration gave no pub- c Indication of its views, but commentators were quick to assert that le memorandum was a refusal of le British viewpoint that any arrr!- lans should "associate an immed- ate reduction in armaments im- osed upon certain powers with an mmediate increase in armaments granted other powers." To Continue Efforts. The Times urged the government ot to lose heart and to continue 'forts to reach "a spendid objec- ve." Others commented differently. "Almost everywhere excepting owning street," said the Express, :he note is regarded as an obituary f the disarmament conference." One newspaper headline read: "France says 'no' in 2070 firm, at words." About the only difference I can see between now and last year," omments a neighboring editor, "is hat last year you'd have been ar- ested for walking down the street rfth a quart bottle of whisky in our pocket; now you'd be arrested or carrying a $10 gold piece. Funy how times change."--Byron, HI., *ress. And riches await the inventor of omething you could use when you re sick of smoking and not satis- ed to do nothing.--Davenport Hmes.
