MADRID, Jan. 7.--Asfter holding the reins of government ae dictator of Spain for srx years and tour months, Premier Primo He Rivera Is teced with a, political crisis which it is believed pvc«age« the early decline o! his regime and which may lead, among other things, to' the abdication ot King Alfonso. Tho premier, in a statement e*- ciusivcly to the United Press today, discussed in some de'tail the methpd by which he hopes to end his dictator- chip In Spain. The National Conciliative Assembly, ho said, w i l l dinettes whether he country IB to 1 h a v e a one-chamber; or two-chamber py.'-tem, no 1n the past. Tho premier, f o l l o w i n g these die'cue- flons, plane to take lilri subsequent program to Kin;: Alfonso for acceptance or rejection. The statement by Do Ktvora f o l lows : "Up to now 1 have submitted for the approval of tho king merely a political plan for the els months of life that remain to tho National Assembly, which will convene J a n u a r y 27, and (liscuf-6 before t h e middle o£ J u n o laws regarding public order, the jiress and public associations.

Do Rivera's iron hand quickly cuopped the domestic troubles, but it wus not u n t i l two years l a t e r that tho Morocco campaign succeeded and tho Kifi' leader, Abd El K r i m , -was d created, with the aid of the French. U o t u r i i i n g from Morocco, Go Rivera s-'trove for the political regeneration of the country.

T.--The 'new e-dition of Ihe f a m o u s Index of Prohibited Books r e c e n t l y published by tho Vatican li'olfglo!.

Thees errors are duii, however, to a misunderstanding of tho Index, Svhich, It must be admitted, is not the .easiest book in t.ho world to undo.

The Dumas, both father and son, are condemned, and their condemnation dates as far back as 1S63. Glancing through tho weighty volume of tho Index, -one Is chiefly strn_--k by the fact, that it dot's n-ot eoent to have been properly brought to date. Voltaire and Rousseau aro both .Indexed, out when we come to modern tirnori the o n l y outstanding namce prescribed nre d'Anmuizio, Bc-rgBon and Charles M a u u r a s of t h o Action Fran caise. Numbers of religious works of ultramodern character and scores oj? works belonging to the u l t r a - m o d e r n school or outspoken sex n o v e l i s t s pass u n - sc.athed. 'The; e x p l a n a t i o n for thi« is that in the- i n t r o d u c t i o n to the Index written by C a r d i n a l Merry del Val, it ia pointed out that according to t h e canon law all works which offend morale or religion aro for that fact alone prohibited for Catholic reading, and 'the- mu-ttor fa teft ,to the conscience, of tho reader. Moreover, in order to get. placed upon the Index, it is necessity to be "denounced" In a regular formal wtty to tho Congregation of t h e Holy Oflice. Eithi.T f r o m the- fear oC g i v i n g nece-ssar^' advertisement to certain ecaiidalous works, or because the reading staff o£ the Congregation of the floiy Oflic'C, cnrivnot bo expected to road all of tho published matter in I h e world, triousandfi of book« w h i c h would be expelccd to f a i l under the condemnation of the Church pass unnoticed. Among British writers of the eighteenth century, 'Melding, Sterne and Addfeon ar-o hw!oxe(i, wMle the earlier Sir Thomas Mo re's "Religio Medici" ia also banned. Owing to the enormous volume of printed matter daily tesulnV fromi the presses of tho world, the task of keeping the Index up to- data and -instituting regular -processes against tho various authors hns become such an Impossible one tht the Congregation of ('lie M'0,ly Office no longer at,tc«i'p'ts it. ' A staff at Joast 15 tmes larger than the present one would be requre], and a knowledge of some 20 or 25 languages would be neceeeary. 11 ia a curious fact, t h a t even certain, verfiioiid of life Holy Bible are included among the prohibited works of the Index.

Eighty thousand telephones were added to the Bell lines in this state. Eig hty thousand new places which, a year ago, could be reached only by per ional visit or messenger -- now within the sound of your voice. Your telephone service grows in convenience and value as tjw number of lelephones increases. In :he past year your service has become more useful by 80,000 telephones, in the last five years by 325,000 telephones, in die last ten years by 615,000 telephones -- in Pennsylvania alone. : I N 1930 our plans call for an expendi- t ire of $44,000,000 to expand and i m j rove the telephone system, In the coming five years the total will be $215,000,000. "These amounts are for nev construction only and represent nev investments in the business. In adc ition, the operation and tnainte- nar ce of the telephone system in Penn- syl"ania in 1930 will involve an expend- itxi -e of over $60,000,000, and in the fivi -year period a sum of $340,000,000. Telephone service is essential to mod- en business and social life. It: is imp o - t a n t that it continue to expand to meet the needs of (he people of Pennsylvania. The quality of tht. service was never better than it is today--despite the increasing complexities which are inherent in a growing inter-communication system. These complexities will continue to increase. But they will be met, and the quality of the service in speed, dependability and genera] efficiency will continue to improve. There is no stand ng still in the Bell system.

Holner makes the following statement in regard to the policy of h e office in the matter ot granting ex; enslons of time for filin,; income tax eturns for 1929 and subsequent years: "It has been brought to the attention of mj' office that tax layers, apparently rely ing, upon the .-.rivlloge of securing an extentiiou of time for filing their income tax re urns, have failed to make proper effc.-t to file their r e t u r n s on or befo e the- due date. "For example, in many cases taxpayers, or attorneys actli £ on their behalf, have requested e; ensions of t i m e for f i l i n g returns h; j been the rule rather I ban the excei lion. It is believed, tluit. in these, as well as in m a n y other cases, tho del ty in filing the returns wa« ocoaslonei , primarily, by a n ( i i n d i i e exercise of t is privilege of the t a x p a y e r s to c-ocuri extensions of time, r a t h e r t h a n for m e r i t o r i o u s rr-Hsons. I n o t h e r words i t a p p e a r s t h e privilege a f f o r d s t a x p yers of ee- c u r i n g an extension of tii -e for f i l i n g their income tax rot urns has been abused. "Inasmuch as it is essential to the proper, ad ministration'of the internal revenue laws Uita returns he flled on or before tho regular clue date whenever possible, ami inesnr.ach . as extensions of time were intended to be granted only in those cases in which, by reason of the circumstances involved, the taxpayers could not have filed a timely return through the oxer- else of o r d i n a r y diligence, extension of. t i m e for filing income tax returns, hereafter, w i l l be granted only u p o n shoeing a good and sufficient cauee Cor the delay in tiling the return. "Therefore, it will be the policy of j this office to refuse to grant extensions of Lime except in exceptional caoes where it is clearly shown that the return cannot be filed within the time prescribed, by law, and no application for an extension of time will be coneitl-ered unless it is accompanied by ran affidavit from the taxpayer in i which the reasons for asking for an i extension iire clearly eet forth. la order that a p p l i c a t i o n s of taxpayers for extensions of time may receive proper consideration, they should Tie f o r w a r d e d to this office at the earliest lnte possible." 5,052 INCREASE IN 4-H ENROLLMENT STATE COLU5GE, J a n . 7--Fourteen different kinds of 4-H agricultural club work were conducted in the State last year, A.
