t K NORTH IOWA'S DAILY PAPER EDITED FOR THE HOME 8Pf Of 10 V* B£S CM* Hitler Puts "Mem Kampf" Into Actions WASHINGTON _ A well ad vised notion has developed inside that Hitler is getting ready to rewrite the rest of "Mein Kampf' by his future actions. H i s . j o i n t gobbling with Hungary of the r e m a i n ! n g Czecho-Stovak- ian morsel opens a d i r e c t w a y t o t h e "Ukraine on the map -- but not d i r e c t as he would have to go. The roads and passes of Euthenia r u n south through Paul MaUon Rumania. Carol's kingdom, they say, will be the next bite. And they would not doubt but what it will be the last Hitler bite for a while. Rumania is edible and nutritious, has everything the Ukraine has and one thing the Ukraine has not -- geographical protection. If Hitler ever takes the Ukraine, as "Mein Kampl" promised, he will have to surround it with a string of steel forts, and defend it eternally against Russia. He could meet his wheat needs in Rumania without the same risk--and probably will. » n f F. R. Not Impressed The president has not been deeply impressed with senatorial opposition to Bill Douglas for the supreme court. White house leg men at the capitol have assured Mr. Roosevelt the securities exchange chairman will be confirmed.

The administration squirmed 3 little in the secret conference of house and senate legislators- before dropping · the amendment First Senator J.
