LINCOLN EVENING JOURNAL, F1UDAY, DECEMBER 11, 1936. NINE mum WAR IS WAGED IN SPAIN European Fascist Powers Accused by Madrid's Foreign Minister. GENEVA. .!. Juho Alvarez D*1 Vayo, Madrid's foreign minister, told the League of Nations council Friday that an international war was being fought on the soil of Spain "An international conflagiation daily becomes more of a menace," he added. The mlmtei chaiged European fascist powei s hoped to "put Spain with all that it tepiesents in resources and #t©graphical position at the set vice of their national policy " Socialist government war casualties, he said, were "victims of fascist airplanes and foreign war material deliveied despite the non- mtei vention agreement," while "women anil children in this capital i M a d t i d i are butchered in hundreds by bombing planes under the orders of rebel generals supplied by states which had in fact begun war whilst their statesmen talked of pieservmg peace." Reliable sources said, the Span- lard sought investigation of the "aims" of the fascist states in Spain. Alvarez Del Vayo, authoritative Spanish circles said, desired the league to learn p a r t i c u l a r l y whether Germany and Italy sought territorial or military advantages from Gen. Francisco Franco, Spanish insurgent leader, in exchange for their alleged aid. With excitement over the abdication of King Edward VIII some- what subsided, the Spanish situation forged back in the limp- light. A joint effort by Gieat Britain and France to mediate the conflict in co-operation w i t h other powers by submitting the socialist-fascist issue to a referendum of the Spanish people, was a moot question in council lobby conversations. Authoritative Spanish sources declared they consi iered foreign mediation a dangerous undertaking and ailded that a popular vote was out of the question for the present. League of Nations officials, on the other hand, said they believed the council \vould not take any steps it considered might jeopardize the Anglo-French mediation effort.

Lindbergh, may seek refuge in Denmark when he passes the throne to the duke of York, it was repot ted.

Simultaneous with the announcement of the official vote in the last presidential election cornea the Information from the two major broadcasting' companies that the republicans bought more time on the radio than did their adversaries. Superficially, this might be construed to mean that the power of the radio in a political campaign is not what it is often represented as being. If the republicans spent more money on radio time than did the new dealers, it Is also true that the effort did not pay them in the final tally of votes. There has been something of a tendency since election to decry the power of the press and to indicate that, somehow or another, the power of the radio was superior to all other influences in the last campaign. But such a statement ignores the fact that notable radio speakers, such as Father Coughlin, confined themselves almost entirely to radio appeals and did not make any considerable dent on the electorate. It will be contended that President Roosevelt, because of his marvelous radio voice, made better use of the broadcasting facilities than did Gov. Landon, who had a glaringly ineffective radio voice. While this is so, it does not prove that the radio hence had more Influence, but that Mr. Roosevelt was a better radio speaker. Radio Intensively Used. The radio was intensively used by the new deal long before the national conventions of last summer. This was time and facilities that the administration did not have to pay for. It began with the "fireside" chats almost immediately after the inauguration and continued with the "nonpohtical" addresses even to the extent of an extraordinary night session for the delivery of the "state of the union" message to a night audience of vast proportions. Likewise, officials, high and low, in the new deal were given time on the air for three and a half years, and, while facilities were offered to the republicans, the latter did not begin to make use of them until the year 1936 in anything like a concerted or planned campaign. What was the effect of three and a half years of radio appeal by the administration? Could it be offset by a short campaign of a few months at a time when the argument got to be so much of a bore that many people turned off their radio instruments altogether except for one or two celebrities ? The big fact rpvealed by the official returns is that the tremendous vote was cast and that some 27,700,000 persons were influenced in one direction and 16,600,000 in another. It might be interesting to note that, inasmuch as, four years ago, Mr. Roosevelt had 22,800,000 and his opponent 15,700,000, the total increase in the voting strength of the country in the two major parties was 5,800,000. Organization Credited. Who influenced the 5,800,000? Of this number, the republicans got only 900,000 and the new deal about 4,900,000. There was a pet out the vote movement on in both parties and it may account for the fact that 5.800,000 more votes were registered than in 1932 but the chances are that effectue political organization wotk by the leaders and workers in the ^jmmmHUiiiiiiiiniiiiiiii Phillips to the WORLD'S LARGEST ^ ^ ^ CHRISTMAS SHOPPING IS SURE TOUGH ON THE OLD BUS--WITH THOSE LONG WAITS IN THE COLD WHILE THE WIFE AND ME WERE PICKING PRESENTS.

Too often in American politic*, the hard \wrk Uone by the persons in the local communities is overlooked and acme extraneous cause is assigned to explain the outcome of an election. Irrespective of the influence of the radio and irrespective of the influence of the press, both of which must have played a part in lining up 16,600,000 votes for on* candidate and 27,700,000 for Mr. Roosevelt, wise political leaders will probably say that the biggest single influence in the election was intensive organization for the last three years. POPE HAS TRANQUIL NIGHT Holds His Own Against Paralysis of Legs. VATICAN CITY. (JPi. Lying in bed, Pope Piux XI assisted at mass Friday in a chapel adjoining his sick room, after what was described as his most tranquil night since he was stricken with paralysis of the legs. His holiness was given a dose of digitalis shortly before dawn. This was the only medicine he took during the night, attendants said. Vatican officials said the Holy Father was holding his own against the paralysis which has confined him to bed for the past week. He went to sleeo Thursday night after reciting his rosary and expressing gratitude the British throne had not fallen and a divorcee would not become queen. The pope's* rest, reliable reports said, was deep but fitful, his swollen legs causing him pain at frequent intervals when h« stirred in his slumber. Altho he might be lifted into an armchair Friday to strengthen his blood circulation and to relieve his restless spirit, it wis considered absolutely out of the question that the 79-year-old pontiff would be allowed actually to get up. WANTED PAUPER'S FUNERAL Dying Wish of Pirandello Is Carried Out. ROME. (.=P. Luigi Pirandello was buried Friday with a pauper's funeral in accoardance with the dying wish of the famed playwright and Nobel prize winner. In the early morning hours a brief prayer was said over the cheap wooden casket in his beautiful Roman villa. Then a simple hearse, used to bear paupers to their graves, drew up before the house where Pirandello died suddenly Thursday morning at the age of 69. The drivers-- Pirandello had asked that he have no pall bearers -- carried out the coffin with only members of the immediate family in attendance. His widow bowed as the hearse left the house and male members of his family gave the fascist salute. The body was placed aboard a train for Agrigento, Sicily, where Pirandello was born and where he will be buried without further ceremonies. "QUEEN AGRICULTURE" DIES Mrs. Virginia Meredith Had Had Long Illness. LAFAYETTE, Ind. (/P. Funeral services for Mrs. Virginia Claypool Meredith, 88, widely known as "the queen of America agriculture." will be held here Saturday. Mrs. Meredith, Purdue university's only woman trustee, died late Thursday after a long illness. Her career as a farm manager, home economics pioneer and farm lecturer started in 1882 after the death of her husband, Henry Clay Meredith. The title "queen of American agncultui e," came from the state of Mississippi in 1934. The state of Wisconsin cited her for eminent service in 1930. In 1889 she became the first woman in tho r o i i n t i y to lecture on crop and livestock production. She organized the home economics department at the University of Minnesota in 1906. Mrs. Meredith was woman's editor of the Breeders' Gazette.

WASHINGTON. (UP). Secretary of Labor Perkins told the council for industrial progress that the federal government has launched an intensive drive to relieve reported shortages in skilled labor by an "apprentice training program." "The program calls for the upholding of mechanics' standards ol skill and the prevention of a flooded labor market," Miss Perkins said in a speech before the council's concluding session. "Thru the machinery set up, organized labor groups can determine the number of apprentices to be trained and the terms of the apprentice agreement. This permits the thoro training of appren- tices where needed and under proper safeguards instead of flooding the labor market with thousands of half trained helpers." ' Miss Perkins' announcement followed widespread complaints from industrial leaders that the skilled labor shortage was becoming acute. The United States chamber of commerce ia surveying the situation. "The standard of the fwleval program will protect apprentices from exploitation which happened too often in the past," Mia* Perkins said. "No apprentice programs provided thru collective bargaining agreements will b« disturbed. The public will profit from the program because there will be an adequate supply of journeymen thoroly skilled in all branches oil the trades." The secretary asked industrialists attending the meeting to survey their plants "for all jobs suitable to old^r or unskilled workeis and then, whenever possible, fill these places from those groups as an initial attack on the growing problem of finding work for men over 40 and heads of families." She warned that, unless this situation Is corrected, "made work will have to be provided for the** unemployable! for which taxe* will be ne«d«d." The chamber, at its last board of directors meeting, Intimated that elderly jobless on relief rolls were unsuited to industrial requirements. It suggested they M cared for, hinting that relief should b* returned to states and communities. Leaden of labor and industry gathered in private conferences to draft a program of social legisla- tion including minimum laws. The proposals will be "pr«« »ented to the president by MaJ. George 1-,, Berry, co-ordmatoi W* industrial co-operation and council chairman. Berry said it would then be submitted to congress for ao» tion. COUNTY AGENT QUITS. BEATRICE, i.?). Harold Bewick.
