GARNER CITES VIEWS OF 1932 Declares Opinions Same as Then; Lists 2 Government Duties WASHINGTON, (£j_vice President Garner is answering inquiries about his stand on governmental policies by citing a statemen of views he made in 1932. He says he now holds the same opinions. The 1932 statement was contained in a letter accepting the democratic vice presidential nomination.' Foregoing the usual notification ceremony, Garner wrote Senior Barkley (D., Ky.) his philosophy on Germany. "There are just two .things to this government as I see it," the letter 'said. "The first is to safeguard the lives and properties of our people: the second is to insure that each of us has a chance LO work out his destiny according !o his talents. "This involves protecting him .rom being injured or oppressed )y those of superior acquisitiveness, and perhaps less conscience vho seek to strain the rules to their own advantage. "In my opinion, nearly all of our civic troubles are the consequence of government's departure rom its legitimate functions. Our ncreased population and new Conditions arising from new in- dentions often make it necessary o change the rules in order to ;eep the balance between the peo- ile and those who would exploit them. "Unfortunately, these changes nd adjustments result loo often n enhancing instead of diminishing the evils." FILIPINOS FEAR JAP INFLUENCE Take Steps to Combat Danger of Militarism From Japan's Forces MANILA, Iff)--Prominent Fi limes took steps Monday to combat, through organization, what hey termed the danger of the D hihppmes "coming under the avage heels of .Japanese mili- arism." Organization of an anti-Jap- nese, anti-fascist congress to Jromote democracy and to boy- ott all Japanese goods was an- lounced fay Aloises Nicomedes F iupmo attorney. Speakers at the organization meeting declared that every cent iiipinos spend for Japanese goods vould be used by Japan for manu- acture of munitions which even- ually would be used to "strangle" Philippine democracy. Appealing to the Filipino peo- le for support of the congress' orpgram, Nicomedes said Japanese Actions--military preparations at ormosa, occupation of Hainan olitical and economic penetra- lon of Davao and other regions- all clearly indicate the Philip- ines are in actual danger of com- ng under the savage heels of apanese militarism." Nicomedes said the congress 'Inch plans a nationwide conven- on, in July, was designed to ohdify Filipinos in' support of regressive American democracy nd other progressive forces hroughout the world.

LEGATION IN PRAGUE CLOSED U.Jx Regards Hurban as Czech Minister for Time Being W A S H I N G T O N , (/P--The -Tinted States closed its legation in Prague Monday and ordered its minister to Czecho-Slovakia to return to this country.

The order went from Washing- .on in the midst of a renewal of congressional debate over American foreign policy. Telegram Is Released The state department also re- eased a telegram from Carr, dated^March 17, which said: "There are no officials of the :zecho-Slovak g o v e r n m e n t to vhich I am accredited with whom can maintain relations for the n-otection of the interests of the United States and its cifeens." "Temporary Extingnislimenl" Sumner Welles, acting secretary if state, was asked by reporters vhether the United States con- inued to regard Colonel Vladimir iurban as Czech minister to the United States. He said that the tatement made on Friday by Mm vas the answer to that question. That statement spoke of the 'temporary extinguishment" of Czecho-Slovakia and his reference o it was taken to mean that the tale department would continue o regard Hurban as Czech min- ster for an indefinite length of ime. Hurban has refused to surrender the legation to German epresentatives.
