^*x2£x**z^y*atxt»vxtiit^fift£ TUESDAY, MARCH 21, 1939 DOUGLAS TO GET QUICK SUPPORT Speedy Confirmation by Senate Expected for Court Nominee WASHINGTON, (/P)--President Roosevelt's nominatign of William O. Douglas to succeed Justice Louis D. Brandels on the supreme court appeared headed Tuesday for speedy and overwhelming senate confirmation. Although most western senators expressed disappointment th someone from their region wa not chosen, none said specifical he would oppose the 40 year o chairman of the securities corr mission. Republican Leader MI Nary joined democratic Leacu. Barkley in predicting quick ap provai. Representative Franklin (D Miss.) said the appointment prob ably would mean Douglas' nom nation for president on the demo cratic ticket next year. Speculation arose over tit choice _of a new SEC head. Th remaining commissioners are un derstood to feel that on this se lection will depend to a great ex tent whether the agency will con tinue its active holding regulatio and regional reorganization c utilities holding companies o whether, as one administratio adviser put it, there will be trend "to the right." Some well-informed person said Commissioner Jerome Frank who was reported planning to re sign, might be persuaded to sta on and become chairman. Thes men also proposed filling the va cancy on the commission from th present staff.

AUNT HET By Robert Quillen "In the old days you could size up new neighbors by watchin' their furniture as they moved in, but now you have to wait and see if t h e installment collector acts mad." Paul he could take Chamberlain Was Caught Flat Footed WASHINGTON--One officia inside version is that Chamberlain, Daladier and Boosevelt had -ome inside information aboui what Hitler was going to do . . . considered · i I inevitable therefore were not surprised. T h e y m a y have known it in the sense t h a t , a s a l l Czech fortresses had been delivered up to Hitler with the Sudeten l a n d , everyone knew i.^ .-wmvA itir.^ the rest whenever he decided to break bis promise. Apparently they did not know he would break his word right after the ides of March, or even this year. That Chamberlain was caught flatfooted is evident in the fact that he was at that very moment publicizing a trade rapprochement with Germany, sending a mission to Berlin. And Mr. Roosevelt told his press conference this was not the crisis he hinted at before he started his naval cruise. (He did not say so, but he merely knew then both Mussolini and Hitler were to bring up new troop classes; the crisis he expected apparently was that still threatened by Mussolini in the Mediterranean). They were all outwitted again. Chamberlain and Daladier are supposed here to have a definite ilan of stopping the dictators at he point where they have expected the next crisis--in the Mediterranean. But no one here believes hey will or can do anything effective about Rumania or^Memei. M in Bread Basket Britain, France and the U.

The excellent inside lobbying job which saved much of Mr Ickes' interior department appropriation from congressional economizing was done by his assistant the ex-congressman William Beiter. As an ex-member he had the privilege of the house floor and used it. (Copyrltkt/Kini Tenures. I n t ) EXPLANATION IS GIVEN ILDUCE Hitler Wants to Be Sure Mussolini Has Full Understanding · BERLIN, #P) _ Adolf Hitler made doubly sure Tuesday that his Italian axis partner, Premier Mussolini, understands developments of last week when Germany a b s o r b e d parts of Czechoslovakia. The reichsfuehrer gave Italian Ambassador Bernardo D. Attolico a personal letter to Mussolini, persons close to the Italian embassy said, before the envoy left Monday night for Rome to report to II Duce. He was expected back in a few days. It was believed the next expansionist move would come from Memel this weekend. Japan Congratulates Hitler Field Marshal Hermann Willelm Goering and his wife left for San Ac-mo, Italy, Tuesday afternoon, to resume their vaca- ion, interrupted last week when ifi was called back to Berlin. Later Goering is to see Mussolini and possibly also Marshal Italo Balbo governor of Libya, in Africa. (Japan sent Hitler congratula- lons on the nazi absorption of Sohemia-Moravia, but the absence of similar felicitations from Rome vas interpreted as a possible indication that Mussolini did not approve of it.) Indicates Question Settled Foreign observers felt that Hiter s permission to Goering to con- mue the holiday was an indication hat the question of the return to Germany of Memel--a 1099- Quare mile Baltic strip under -dthuaman sovereignty--had been ettled and that Lithuanians had promised not to attempt to pre- ent that former German district from getting "home to the reich " Ambassador Attolico saw both Witler and German Foreign Minis- MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE Air Ya Listenin?

RISSE LASHES LEGISLATURE "We're On Road to No-Where," Mitchell Representative Says DBS MOINES, (IP)--The Iowa general assembly heard itself appraised Tuesday "as the leasl effective of legislatures" and ir the next breath was urged to "nol be discouraged." At the same time republican leadership in the house cautioned that night sessions, "at least three this week," would be necessary if (hat body is to keep abreast of its work. Representative H. P. Risse (R) of Mitchell, gave the house its verbal "going-over." "Let's get down to business," he shouted, "we're now on the road to no-where. I'm ready to put myself on the spot to go to work." Claus, Blue in Tiff Risse, a minister and insurance dealer in private life, took the floor following a brief but sparkling tiff between Representative Claus Randall (R) of Manly, and Representative Robert D. Blue (R) of Eagle Grove, over Randall's attempt to bring up for early consideration, a bill by which 500 to 1,000 patients in Iowa state hospitals would be returned to county homes. The bill was not on the calendar. Blue resisted Randall's motion challenging the house to "dump the calendar (now controlled by a sifting committee) if you want to." "This house," Blue continued, "is in a log jam; we're a week behind the senate." With that Randall withdrevv his motion, and Risse's admonition followed. Liberal applause from the floor and gallery followed his retirement. The galleries were well filled with old age pensioners. Peisen Urges Courage Representative Dean W. Peisen (R) of Eldora, leader of the house reorganization group, poured oil on troubled waters when he appealed to the membership to "sweat it out" and not be discouraged. "I say Risse hasn't discovered anything new, but we shouldn't lose faith in ourselves for the democratic way is the hard way. You are going to wish you were back home, that's one of the penalties for being here." Representative E. A. Moore, (D) of Harlan, ended the affair with a plea to "end the addresses and go'to work." SLAIN BY TERRORISTS SHANGHAI. W--Terrorists, inactive for nearly a month. Tuesday shot and killed Wong Shigh-Zung, an official of the Japanese-sponsored shipping control bureau, while he was shaving in his hotel room in the international settlement. ; Nazi Citizen Shot by Jew at Brasov . BUCHAREST, (/P)_The shooting of a German citizen by a Jew at Brasov caused concern Tuesday m the Rumanian capita], where King Carol has taken the lead in a Balkan struggle to escape complete German political and economic domination. The German was reported in a grave condition. Some sources believed Germans might regard the shooting at Bi-asov, which is 100 miles northwest of Bucharest, as an "international incident." Followed Argument The wounded German, Dr. Hjalmar Krarzt, had gone to a Jewish community house at Brasov, reports from that city said and an argument between him and the. doorman's wife developed whereupon her husband appeared and shot him. Dr Krarzt was taken to a hospital. Officials meanwhile said trade discussions with Germany would not be concluded for several days Rumania, they said, has not grant-' 1 ? e £ n H n y any monopolistic hts, but instead will adhere to a free commercial policy Prepared for Defense As for Hungary, Germany's anti-Comintern pact partner, au- ^h ft s . sai . d . Humanias relations vith that state were "as good as can be expected." However a spokesman added that Rumania vas prepared to defend every inch of her territory and regarded the present frontier with Hungary as JD3J, Rumania seemed to have escaped German economic domina- lon and Carol assumed the leadership of Balkan forces opposed o the nazi political and economic penetration. VOICES VIEW ON GARNER FUTURE Elliott Roosevelt Says Vice President in Line for 1940 FORT WORTH, Texas, (iPj-- Elliott Roosevelt, son o£ the president, says Vice President John N. Garner is "in the driver's seat right now" as a likely democratic- candidate for the presidency in 1940, In a radio broadcast, young Roosevelt said Monday night there is little room to doubt that Mr. Garner and the president ot the United States have traveled separate roads since the winter oC 1937. Reports have it that the vice president became so incensed over the administration's handling of the sit-down strike situation that he quit Washington and returned to Uvalde for a six-month vacation. Since his return, his opinions have been at variance with the president's as to the path beinz taken by the democratic party." Terming Garner "a party man" the speaker said Garner saw in last fall's elections a return to conservatism and that Garner was "reported to have requested frequently that the administration sense the trend and bring the democratic party into a more conservative alignment." Roosevelt declared, however, "I do not feel qualified to voice an opinion as to the results thus far and the future attainments of t$e conservative element as opposed to the new deal." st Person Leaps 7 rom "Suicide Bridge" PASADENA, Cal., OF)--"Sui- ide bridge," spanning the Arroyo iego at Pasadena's western en- rance, claimed SO lives before the ity erected high fences in August 937.
