TWO MASON CJTY GLOBE-GAZETTE, APRIL 16 · 1936 satisfactory (for Italy) conclusion of the war was the possible imposition of more sanctions against ItaJy under the leadership of Great Britain, but fascists said they could win against sanctions just as they had against Ethiopian warriors. Especial criticism was directed in Italy against Anthony Eden, the British foreign secretary, who went to Geneva for a meeting of the league of nations conciliation committee which seeks to determine whether Italy is ready yet to make an. early armistice with Emperor Haile Selassie. France Is Fearful. Reports from the · conference room indicated that things were not going any too well in Geneva and that there was little reason to assume that Premier Mussolini intended to make peace on other than his own terms. France, fearful for eventualities, surveyed its own military strength to be certain that she had sufficient power to defend herself in case the whole system of collective security should collapse under the weight of the Ethiopian war and Reichsfuehr- er Hitler's denunciation of the Locarno pact. French military officers, with those of Great Britain and Belgium, continued their conference in London concerning plans for co-operation in case of some sudden act of aggression on the part of Germany. Foreign military observers said they 'believed, however, that these talks would'prove virtually useless. Mediterranean Tense. The tenseness in the Mediterranean was'illustrated further by the fact that Great Britain has dispatched 15 mine sweeping trawlers of a new, secret type to Gibraltar. The mine sweepers were recently tuilt and rushed to the Mediterranean from Portsmouth. . An authoritative source in London said the British government ·was not considering the withdrawal of any of her warships already in the area. At the same time, the Egyptian government took several Italian manufactured articles off the list of products banned from import by · sanctions. FRANCE WAKNS BRITAIN AGAINST LONE HAND PARIS, S) -- Official quarters said Wednesday night a French agreement to aid the British fleet if it is attacked in the Mediterranean "does not hold if England plays a lone hand against Italy." ·. This warning to Britain was published in the newspaper Le Temps and was confirmed in official quarters. France along with several Medi terranean nations had assured Greal Britain that if she were attacked in the . Mediterranean by Italy they would come to her aid. (France favors the lifting of sanctions from Italy in order to,be assured of her aid against Germany, ·while Britain reportedly favors increasing the sanctions if current league peace (negotiations are not fruitful.)'

Representatives of the Omaha and North Western railroads, acting together in the purchase proposal, said their taking over 91 miles of track between Albert Lea and Hopkins, Minn., would mean -in creased benefits in traffic servid over the system.

S., «"--En- gineers set up a diamond drill Thursday to bore 'a five inch hole 140 feet into the ground to try to send food and supplies down to three entombed men of Toronto, who may still be alive deep in a caved in gold mine. The drill was brought in from New Glasgow during the night.

JP--The house labor committee Thursday gave its approval to legislation to regulate the textile industry. President Roosevelt, using George Washington's old trowel to dedicate the new $12,000,000 interior department building pledged renewed efforts to conserve natural resources. Secretary Ickes called him "the greatest conservationist in American history." The senate reconvened in secret session and, after a quorum call, resumed deliberations on the impeachment case against Federal Judge Halsted L. Ritter of Florida. It was agreed not to vote on the seven impeachment articles until Friday because several senators wishing to be recorded were absent. Highway Bill Up. A $440.000,000 highway bill had right-of-way in the house. Senate investigators heard from Emil Rieve, president of the Hosiery Workers federation, that his union was loaded with labor spies. Dr. Dorothy W. Douglas, assistant professor of economics at Smith college, told a senate committee the social security act provides "inadequate benefits for too short a time, to top few workers." The president completed membership of his committee on industrial analysis. Request Voted Down. The house, where controversy raged over the lobby committee's subpenaing of telegrams, voted down late Wednesday a request for $10,000 to fight William Randolph Hearst's attempt to enjoin the investigators from examining his telegrams. Some members were indignant over the committee's action in bringing into its inquiry the names of representatives, including six who shared a home with a lobbyist.- Senator Minton (D., Ind.) served notice that the committee would pursue its inquiry into activities of Silas Strawn, Chicago lawyer. and anti-new dealer, who recently obtained an injunction preventing Western Union from turning his firm's telegrams over to the senators. In a speech prepared for delivery Thursday to the American Society of Newspaper Editors, Grove Patterson, society president, attacked what he termed the "indefensible, dictatorial methods of the Black senatorial committee in seizing private messages." Ask for $100,000. Other developments: · A committee headed by Senator Wheeler (D., Mont.), which has been investigating railroad financing, prepared to ask $100,000 to continue the investigation ] through to the next session of congress. In addition to the railroads, big Wall street bankers are prominent objectives of the committee, which expects to conduct public hearings later. The justice department pressed for quick action against eight men arrested in connection with the disappearance of 5310,000 worth of bonds from the United States Trust company of New York 16 months ago. The arrest of the eight, in New York, Florida, and Washington, was announced Wednesday night by J. Edgar Hoover, chief G man. Wcndel in. Mercer county rise are pending. Brooklyn authorities were investigating his story that he was imprisoned . and tortured until he "confessed" the kidnap murder. Brooklyn authorities said they were anxious to have Wendel there as soon as possible to aid them in their inquiry. They hoped Wendel would be admitted to bail on the' embezzlement charges so he could go with them. Plan Nothing Further. Prior to its adjournment Wednesday night, there was grand jury talk of possible indictments for perjury or conspiracy to obstruct justice in event the charges against Wendel proved wrong. With" the voting of the "no bill," however, there was every indication, a reliable source said, that the jurors would do nothing further in .the case. The jury term expires May 12. The grand jury action constituted the first major defeat in many years of Ellis H. Parker, chief of Burlington county detectives, who obtained the Wendel "confessions." Parker told the grand jury he was staking bis life's reputation as a detective that Wendel was the Lindbergh kidnaper. emocratic presidential primary, nd all of the candidates for dele- ates to the national convention in 'hiladelphia were pro-new deal.
