BUCHAREST, Rumania, March 30. (51--Terrified crowds poured into the streets from theaters, restaurants adn homes last night as two prolonged earth shocks were felt throughout the city. Windows were broken and pictures were shaken from walls by the shocks, the worst experienced here within recent memory. Dispatches coming In from the provinces indicated that the quake was widespread. WIRT SAYS NAMES ARE FILED SAFELY (CtmtJnOfd From P»fe 1) had wired to "demand" the names of those who informed Wirt that a, social revolution was planned. The two exchanged no telegrams but the ones concerning the proposed debate, he said. Today, Foulkes declined to express himself on the "significance" of the message from Wirt. The Michigan congressman's statement added, however: "Apparently Dr. Wirt came in like a lion and is going out like a lamb." Win Be Called. A summons was in preparation toda,y for Wirt to come to Washington and tell the whole story. Representative Bulwinkle (D., N, Car.), whose resolution for an investigation was adopted late yesterday by the house, said Wirt would get an invitation to appear before a special committee probably late next week. Efforts to reach Wallace for his reaction were unavailing. Close aides of the agriculture secretary, however, were inclined to minimize -Wirt's latest action. Said Plan Experiments. They pointed out that Wallace had said on numerous occasions that some of the plans underway were experiments, and that it wai too early to tell how they would end. Prior to receipt of the Wirt telegram Wallace smiled when newspapermen asked him his reaction to the Hoosier schoolmaster's statements that some members of the "brain trust" were planning a revolution. "It is amazing," said Wallace, "the state of mind that newspapers can create at times." MAYMANCHOUT .INTO NEW FIELDS (Continntd From Pwe 1) industry groups. Both were requested to report not later than April 4. Johnson's action was taken after reading reports from the two special industrial committees created after the round-up of criticism here. The reports said it would be unwise to order a flat 10 per cent reduction in working hours while keeping wages at the same level. Wants Seasons. "In order to help determine promptly," he said in his letter to the code authorities, "whether your industry has the ability to meet the president's request of reducing hours by 10 per cent without reduction of weekly pay, I would like you to advise me whether your industry is in a position to do this, and if not, why not." The new investment survey plan is closely allied with this movement. A drive for home construction and modernization might play a part although, in the words of Frank C. Walker, head of the president's emergency council, the project is still in the study stage. After all, the easiest way for a man to protect his home is to marry the right kind of girl.--Lincoln Star. HITLER WANTS TO TALK WITH F. R. (Continued From Paie 1) uating life as if it were a ladder. There must be a possibility, however, for everybody to climb that ladder." I asked him: "What is your attitude toward criticism, both individual and of the press?" Quickly, the chancellor answered: Whole Staff of Men." "Do you realize that I have a whole staff of men around me, men versed in numerous phases of economic, social, and political life, whom I have associated with me for no other purpose than that I want them to criticize? "Before we pass any law, I show a draft of it to these men and say, ·Tell me what is wrong with this.' -"I don't want these people to be merely 'yes men.' They are no use to me unless they criticize and tell me what defect might possibly be connected with our measures. "Similarly, I don't want the press merely and solely to take from above what is handed out. It's no fun to read 15 papers, all of which have almost the same wording. In the due course of time our editors will again be so trained that they can supply their own valuable contributions 'to national reconstruction. Opposes Destructive Press. "This I can tell you, however,"-and here his face darkened and his voice grew hard--"I won't stand for a press that exists exclusively to destroy what we are trying to build up. "If ed'tors approach our regime with a view of imposing their intolerant Weltanschauung (world philosophy), I tell them I then propose to use the modern power of the press just as efficaciously to fight them. I propose to show no quarter whatsoever to agents of enemy powers. Such men violate the laws of hospitality. "I most heartily welcome the presence of any foreign journalist who reports objectively, without bias, what he sees and hears in Germany. He ought to take care, for his own sake and the sake of his reputation as a journalist, not to place himself in a position where later he must recall his own words because he failed to grasp the significance or the justice of measures adopted by our regime." One More Question. I asked: "One more question Herr Reichskanzler,"--our whole conversation was in German--"in the days before you came into power you mingled with the people to keep in close contact with them now, when you appear anywhere the streets are decorated and se speeches of welcome, delivered b; the heads of local governments greet you; how do you manage t keep your hand on the pulse of th nation? How do you keep in con tact with'th'e common-man?" A smile illuminated Hitler's fac and then he laughed. "For one thing, you ought to sit at my daily lunch table upstairs," he said, and laughed again. "You would see how every day new faces turn up. My house is like a beehive. "The latchstring is always out for my co-fighters, no matter how humble their rank. Our organization reaches down into the smallest hamlet and village; from everywhere, my followers come to Berlin and drop in on me. Over that lunch table, they then tell me about their worries and their troubles. Nununerous Other Methods. "There are, of course, numerous other methods of keeping in touch with affairs, but I just mention this characteristic one by way of illustration. "We have great aims and purposes. To realize them slowly but methodically is my chief concern. "I need four years for realizing what we put forward as the first part of our program; then I will need another four years for the next section, and so on. "Our aim is a greater, better, hap pier Germany." Hitler granted me this Interview in his spacious study.

He came half way across the room to freet me affably, and then motioned ne to sit on a settee while he and he sole witness to our conversation seated themselves in straight hacked :hairs. That witness was Ernest F. Hanf- staengel, former Harvard student and Hitler's personal and devoted friend. . It was Hanfstaengel who first indicated to the world that Hitler has a keen sense of humor for when Hanfstaengel hit upon the idea of publishing a book of 100 caricatures depicting the present chancellor as seen through cartoonists' eyes during that decade preceding his assumption of power, Hitler was so amused he indorsed the book and wished it international publicity.

We love the children ... don't doubt that! But... We have a little problem in connection with the conduct of our Cooking School which compels us to discourage attendance of children at this year's sessions. You see, it's like this-- The seating capacity of the high school auditorium has never been great enough to accommodate all the housewives who wished to attend the Cooking School. Many have had to stand and on occasion women have been unable to gain admittance to the hall. Of course, a seat is a seat, whether it's occupied by a child or by a grown-up. Our request, therefore, is-- That parents co-operate with us by not bringing children under the age of 15. We hasten to explain that this is merely a request and a suggestion. It is NOT a rule to be enforced. Our pleasant experience in staging Cooking Schools in the past leads us to believe that the consideration of others involved in this suggestion will be forthcoming. And we'll thank you heartily! The Globe-Gazette Saturday the Last Day Combination Offer ENDS! NOW!
