German-Polish discussions about j Danzig and the corridor and in,: dicated that the British sov- · eminent hoped normal talks ! would take place on those · phases of Hie situation. It generally was expected that Polish, British and French mill- tary authorities would meet soon to draft a specific plan of military action in event Poland should be attacked following Chamberlain's declaration. Talks With Kussia He disclosed that Britain also was m close contact with Soviet Russia in reaching the momentous decision. "The foreign secretary (Viscount Halifax) saw the soviet ambassador (Ivan Maisky) this morning and had a very full discussion with him on the subject." Later in reply to a laboi-ite request "for an assurance that there are not x x x ideological impediments between ourselves and Russia," Chamberlain replied: "Yes sir! I have no hesitation m giving that assurance." Text of Statement by Chamberlain LONDON, (fP)--l"ne text of Prime Minister Chamberlain's statement in the house of commons Friday follows: I am glad to take this opportunity of stating again the general policy of his majesty's government. They have constantly advocated the adjustment by way of free negotiation between the parties concerned of any differences that may arise between them They consider that this is the natural and proper course where differences exist. In their opinion there should be no question incapable of solution by peaceful means and they would see no justification for the substitution of force or threats of force lor the method of negotiation. Has Assured Poland As the house is aware, certain consultations are now proceeding with other governments. In order to make perfectly clear the position of his majesty's government, in the meantime, before those consultations are concluded I now have to inform the house' that during that period, in the event of any action which clearly threatened Polish independence and which the Polish government accordingly considered it vital to resist with their national forces his majesty's government would feel themselves bound at once to lend - the Polish government all support in their power. They have given the Polish government an assurance to this effect French Stand Same I may add that the French government have authorized me to make it plain that they stand in the same position in this matter as do his majesty's government. The foreign secretary saw the soviet ambassador Friday morning and had a very full discussion with him; on the; subject. I have no doilbt the principles on which we are\ acting are fully understood and 'appreciated by that government. ' The visit of Colonel Beck will provide an opportunity of discussing with him the various further measures that may be taken in order to accumulate the maximum amount of co-operation in any efforts that may be made to put an end to aggression if--if aggression were intended--and to substitute for it the more reasonable and orderly method of discussion. Dominions Are Informed The question of a conference is amply a matter of expediency We have no theoretical views about conferences if they prove to be the best way. If there are other and more effective ways of achieving our object we might disperse with conferences. The dominions are being kept lully informed.

Senator L. B. Forsling (R) Sioux City, claimed responsibility lor the change, explaining that it had been a correction of a stenographic error. Brcen charged the word "additional" iosertcd in each line of the graduated license tax schedule \vas "just making another whack at the bill's effectiveness." The Fort Dodge senator's amendment to apply a chain organization's highest bracket to all its stores failed by a vote of 17 to 3 3, "It is purely a matter of arithmetic. You're going to cut the amount which the A. and P. (food stores) would pay about in half if you permit the word 'additional' which was not in the bill when I last saw it," Breen declared. There seems to be three musts' m regard to this bill," he continued. Says Faith Broken It must be anemic. It must leave out the oil companies And othTM" 51 PaSS in S ° me way or "Talk about keeping faith with committees," Breen laid, referring to Thursday's debate when Majority Floor Leader E.

Forslins Mas Explanation It was I who made the change I made the mistake in the first place. I corrected it to conform to the views of the committee," Fors- lins explained. "Now we see what happened," Breen replied. "After some members of the committee saw it, and Under the bill as it stands, a large chain pays a certain license fee on each store up to a certain number; a higher amount on the next ten stores, and a still higher amount on the stores in each succeeding bracket. HOUSE DELAYS ON NEW OFFICE BUILDING A last minute economy plea by f re |^ taUve ' Dean W- Peiseri" J. tldora, who asserted Iowa's mam industry is existing "under* federal, subsidy," Friday caused the lowa house to delay action on a bill appropriating 51,300,000 for a new state office building "Ordinarily, when a person is not sure of his future or when he is living on his neighbors, he does not build himself a new home' Peisen said as the lower chamber was preparing to vote on the building measure. The bill's sponsors explained Iowa beer drinkers, through the state barrel tax on the beverage, would pay for the structure The §1,200,000 annual beer levy income now is used to pay claims against the state sinking fund, which guarantees public deposits against bank receivership losses 'After July 1, 1940, they assert] the claims all will have been paid and the beer money will be available for other purposes. A companion bill to the building measure would place the beer revenue in. the state general fund, out of which an office building or other state needs could be financed. U. S. Lets Contract for Aircraft Carrier Costing $31,800,000 WASHINGTON, (./P) -- A S31 800,000 contract for constructing the aircraft carrier Hornet increased to 75 vessels Friday the modem fleet which the navy is building or has ordered.

FRANCE SIGNS WITH RUMANIA Trade Treaty Designed to Offset Economic Expansion of Germany _ PARIS, (!P) -- France Friday signed a commercial accord with Bumania and the French government arranged for final discussion Saturday of the armed support France could pledge to Poland against German aggression. The French-Rumanian accord, designed as a check against Germany's economic penetration of southeastern Europe, was signed at the foreign office by Foreign Minister Georges Bonnet and Rumanian Ambassador Georges Tatarescu. President Albert Lebrun summoned the cabinet to meet Saturday to reach a decision on the measure of military aid France would promise Poland if the expanding nazi s t a t e marched against Polish territory.
