S. CHICAGO, April 16.--Smith W. Brookhart should be removed from his remunerative government position if an investigation proves him guilty of desiring to see another form of government set up in the United States, said E. A. Hayes, national commander of the American Legion, in an address here. "This statement," said Command- «r "Hayes, referring to a recent ar': tide in a newspaper in which the iormer senator from Iowa was quoted,' "if it reflects the exact state of the mind of the man who made - it, contains utterances from which the only inference that can be drawn is that he desires to see another form of government in the "United States of America. I claim it is high time that an investigation is made to determine his motive and that of all men of his ilk high up in government affairs. "And I say to the congress of the United States that the investigation recently undertaken of specific charges along these lines, in all fairness to the president and citizens, should be broad and comprehensive, thorough and complete. "We are not at this time.vitally concerned with the individual who stands on a - soapbox and orates. But if there are people of influence within the inner circle of government who preach tenets inimical to the very basis of our government itself, then, without any partisanship l without any intention of undermining anyone's political influence, the American Legion says, 'Drag them out into the open for all to see.' "In doing so, let us see to it that no one is allowed to be crucified unfairly. Fairmindedness dictates that anyone accused is. presumed innocent of the accusation until proved guilty, but when a man as high up as Mr. Brookhart, who draws a salary from the Agricultural Adjustment Administration of this government, makes the public statement from a bureau of our government, that he is in favor of what amounts of a communal state, then so far as that gentleman is concerned, there is very little investigation .needed and his removal from the payroll and influence in the government is clearly indicated." Alice Barrows, top, and Hil- degardc Kneeland, below, are two of the six members of the administration's so-called "brain trust" at'Washington named in testimony of Dr. William A. Wirt of Gar)', Ind., before a congressional investigating committee, as intellectual radicals who plotted to force a change in the American system of government. Miss Barrows is connected with the department of education, interior department, and Miss Kneeland is connected with the home economics bureau of the department of agriculture. Appraised of Dr. Wirt's charges all those named either laughed or refused comment.

BRITT, April 16.--Immediate payment of the remainder of compensation certificates is urged in a resolution adopted by the Britt post of the American Legion. The resolution stated: "Be it resolved by Britt post, No. 315, American Legion, that the actual need .among ex-service men was never greater than at present and that a just debt to them was only partly paid by allowing them to bor- ·ow one-half of their adjusted compensation certificates, and in view of the great benefits that -would accrue not only to the ex-service men by paying of the remainder of these certificates at this time, but also to the general public through the increased buying power of the ex-service men and the wide distri* mtion this money would have, we believe it would be one of the greatest trade stimulants and most ef- 'ective means of recovery that could be enacted at this time. "The interest rates of government borrowing are so low that money can almost be borrowed for nothing and.with this condition existing it would- seem a most propitious time to pay this off. "At the time this bill was enacted allowing the ex-service man the adjusted compensation there was not the dire need and distress that prevails now. It would seem that the present situation puts the ex-service man in the position of a man who will inherit a fortune which is all ready made but cannot touch it for a number of years and in the meantime starves to death." .HEADS NAZI PROBE Representative John McCormack oi Massachusetts Is (.hair- man of the house committee to Investigate nazi propaganda.
