Troops Are Assembled The foreign' editor of the papei declared Rumania is mobilizing five army corps and Germany has mobilized 22 divisions as an east- erji striking force. France followed Britain's lead in recalling h*er ambassador from Germany, The British government, acting in concert with France, du-ectec its ambassador in Berlin to deliver a formal note to the German government saying the invasion o Czecho-Slovakia represented "a complete repudiation of the Mu nich agreement." The British foreign office an' -nounced also that the note which Ambassador Sir Nevile Henderson was instructed to presen would state that "his majesty's government regard as withou legal basis the changes effected by Germany's military action in Czechoslovakia." The French government announced in Paris that a similar note would be presented by the French ambassador in Berlin. The British announcement out- Alining the nature of the note to be -presented said that "recent events in central Europe represent a complete repudiation of the Munich agreement and 'the undertakings of peaceful co-operation exchanged at-that time by the parties' to it." Consults With Ambassadors The announcement added that "ihe British government further regard as without legal basis the changes effected by German military action in Czecho-Slovakia. Meanwhile Foreign . Secretary Viscount Halifax consulted the American, French and soviet Russian ambassadors. German Ambassador Herbert von Dirksen also called, giving rise to speculation that he might have been ordered to return to Berlin in retaliation for Britain's calling home of Ambassador Henderson "to report." . Cabinet Is Called ·Indicating the' urgency with which Britain considered the situation, Prime Minister Chamberlain also summoned the cabinet to a Saturday night meeting. . The cabinet was to give immediate consideration to the European situation, the prime minister having admitted that his policy of European conciliation collapsed with Germany's occupation of Czechoslovakia. ·. 1 Despite applause from all quarters for his slashing attack on , Germany and Adolf Hitler for taking over Czecho-Slovakia, discontent over Chamberlain's leadership persisted, even among some .of his conservative followers.

Conscription Demanded Chamberlain, in his speech at Birmingham, declared against any specific new commitments but indicated that Britain was prepared to return to some form of collective security. There' were before Chamberlain widespread demands for national conscription to parallel the immense British gram. In the forefront of discussion were suggestions that former Foreign Secretary Anthony Eden and .Winston Churchill, leading critics of; Germany, might join the cabinet. Here was some talk also in political quarters that Chamberlain, now that he had acknowledged failure of his appeasement policy and reached the age of 70, might rearmament pro- MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE Where Will Hitler Strike Next?

Germany is negotiating for more of Rumania's trade, but Foreign Minister ,Grigore Gafencu declared nazi economic proposals did not constitute an ultimatum. (In London a spokesman of the Rumanian legation said his government had received and rejected sweeping demands by Germany for complete economic co-operation as the price of guarantees of Rumania's territorial integrity.

S. department of labor conciliator, entered officially into the laundry strike situ- uon here Saturday morning. Mr. Wenig, who has been in the city several days working on the E. G. Morse produce plant and the Schermerhorn dairy strikes received a wire Saturday morning from Washington, assigning him to the laundry labor dispute. "I have planned a meeting of the employers and the union officials in the' federal grand jury room at 10 o'clock Monday morning," Mr. Wenig stated. "No one but representatives of the two parties and myselE will be allowed in the room while the negotiations are on." Represent Employers , H. J. Bryant is the attorney for the Ideal-American laundry and Garfield Breese for the Lyons Laundry and Dry Cleaners, Inc., the conciliator stated. The conciliator met with Joe Pease, business agent for the drivers' union, and Cecil Utterback, business agent of the Des Moines local of the International Union of Launderers, Cleaners, Dyers and Pressers, at the Hotel Hanford Saturday morning and expected to confer with the employers of the two laundries later in the day. The conciliator was brought into the laundry situation at the request of C. M. Lyons, president of the Lyons Laundry and Dry Cleaners, Inc., and W. J. Holahan, general manager of the Ideal- American laundry, 130 of whose employes have been on strike since Tuesday morning. Receive Telegram The two employers wired the department Friday afternoon and Saturday morning received a telegram from J. R. Steelman, director of conciliation, department of labor, Washington, D. C, stating that Mr. Wenig had been assigned to conciliate the. strike. Meanwhile striking l a u n d r y workers continued to picket the two laundries directly involved in the strike and the plant of Marshall and Swift, whose employes are working as usual. "Our plant is operating as usual, "said Arleigh Marshall of the Marshall and Swift plant. No change was reported Saturday in the siatus of the Morse or Schermerhorn situations, where employes are continuing on strike. MAY STUDY DEFENSES MONTEVIDEO, Uruguay, (/P)-The Uruguayan cabinet met Saturday to decide whether the international congress for the democracy of America will be permitted to meet here Monday to study defenses against imperialism, naziism and fascism. SUPPORT GIVEN WELLES'NOTE Some Senators Propose President Be Given Greater Freedom WASHINGTON, Iff)--Administration supporters in the senate- backed up the state department's c o n d e m n a t i o n of Germany's march into Czecho-Slovakia Saturday with proposals that the president be given greater freedom to deal with the dictator nations. They gave unqualified approval to tlie statement made Friday by Sunnier Welles, undersecretary of state, that "wanton lawlessness" and "arbitrary force" were "threatening world peace and the very structure of modern civilization." Some senators contended, however, the Welles declaration was puzzling in that it merely reaffirmed previous government policy. Typical of these expressions was this 'comment by Senator George (D., Ga.), a member of the foreign relations committee: "The attitude of the government already had been made clear, especially regarding Hitler. It is perplexing that the administration deemed it advisable to reiterate in general terms the position of the government, which must be well known both here and abroad." Administration men took a.dif- ferent view, Senators Barkley (D., Ky.) and Pepper (D., Fla.) contending no nation should fail to condemn Germany's actions. Officials hoped this government's denunciation would lead to a concert of disapproval by the democratic nations and possibly affect Hitler's future moves. BENES DEFIES NAZI SEIZURE Sends Pleas to F. R, Litvinoff, Daladier and Chamberlain CHICAGO, .Uf _ Dr. Eduard Benes, self-exiled former president of Czecho-Slovakia, hurled double-barreled defiance at Germany Friday in telegrams to leaders of the world's foremost non- fascist powers and the league of nations. In the boldest gesture since he was forced to resign Jast fall as leader of the now extinct post-war republic, Benes dispatched to President Roosevelt, Foreign Coni- misar -Maxim Iltvuiov. of -Russia Prime Minister Neville' Chamberlain of Great Britain, Premier Edouard Daladier of France and the league of nations telegrams proclaiming eternal Czech and Slovak resistance against Germany and invoking military sanctions against the nazi invader -of his fatherland. Benes, distraught but defiant, said he was making "this solemn protest" as ex-president of Czechoslovakia because the people of his country no longer were able to protest for themselves. "Before the conscience of the world and before history," he said, "I am obliged to proclaim that the Czechs and Slovaks · will never accept this unbearable 'imposition on their sacred rights and will never cease their struggle until these rights are reinstated for theu- beloved country." He implored leaders of the four powers to "refuse to recognize this /rrir»i» " Raising Citrus Fruit Is More of Business Than Fad With Stars HOLLYWOOD, (If) -- Raising oranges and lemons has become more a business than a /ad with many of Hollywood's top-ranking actors and actresses. During lulls between picture* celebrities have turned to working on their own citrus ranches. Some maintain commercially successful groves; Others are just a hobby. Al Jolson is one of Encino's largest growers, as well as president of its chamber of commerce. Paul Muni owns 14 acres of oranges which probably will be bearing in another year. Clark Gable, on his recently- acquired Encino ranch, lias been busy weeding a four-acre which had been neglected. grove oogan Settlement in C Accountings Suit Is Ready for Filing HOLLYWOOD, (if) -- Things were looking better Saturday for Jackie Coogan, who won fame as the ragged "kid" of silent films. Embroiled for months in a court battle with his stepfather and mother, the Arthur Bernsteins, over his earnings as a juvenile and estranged for several weeks from his wife, blond Betty Grable, young Coogan hoped his troubles were past. His attorneys announced that a settlement of his accountings suit was ready for filing, but made public no terms. Paramount studio announced that Jackie had been signed for a supporting role in his wife's new picture, "Million Dollar Legs."
