Rumania Fearful She Will Be Drawn Into Fierce Border Clash. REPRISAL THREATS BEING CIRCULATED By SIDNEY J. 1VILLIAMS United Press Stall Correspondent. ·' LONDON 7 , Jan. 7.--Diplomatic reports said today that most dangerous situation exists on the Czechoslovak- Hungarian frontier as the result of a clash at Munkaes, and that a new explosion might occur at any time. ·Rumania was reported to be so worried at the possibility that she would be drawn into a general fight, that she was inclined to reconsider her refusal to agree to a common Hungarian-Polish frontier at Czechoslovakia's expense. When news first reached London yesterday of the serious fight between Czechoslovak, and Hungarian soldiery at Munkaes, which was awarded to Hungary in the dismemberment of Czechoslovakia, there was a tendency to regard the incident as an isolated one of little importance.- Today, however, it was reported in well informed quarters that Hungary, in protesting to the Czechoslovak government, asserted that Hungary's efforts to improve mutual relations had been frustrated by the Munkaes attack and that Hungary would decline to accept responsibility for tu- ture events. This wis believed to contain the threat of reprisals. Authoritative Hungarian sources in London predicted that it would not be possible to localize, and thus isolate, the incident. Observers oC central European events said that they were not surprised by the Munkaes incident. They said the whole frontier between Hungary and, eastern Czechoslovakia had been a danger area ever since the dismemberment agreements, that hatred and suspicion were so intense that a clash on a large scale might be expected at any moment.

Vtu, said that because of the criticism which followed the quick Senate confirmation of the appointment of Justice Hugo L. Black, Frankfurter would be scrutinized thoroughly. One committee member said that Frankfurter might be asked for his views on President Roosevelt's Supreme Court reorganization * bill, which was rejected by the Senate after a long fight in 1937. In addition to Senator Matthew M. Necly, D., %V. Va., the committee "is made up ot Senators Pat McCarran, D., Ncv., Tom Connally, D., Tex., j James H. Hughes, D., Del., Charles L. McNory, R., Ore., William E. Borah, R., Ida., Warren R. Austin, Ft.. VI.. and George W. Norris, Ind., Neb. "I think it would be a good idea for Mr. Frankfuiter to be present," King said, "in view of the attitude of some persons who feel that he has been too closely identified with the New Deal. If I were- Mr. Frankfurter, I would certainly ask for an invitation to appejrr." McCarran said that ho "would like very much to have a talk with Mr. Frankfurter." It was learned that a friend of Frankfurter had been in communication, with Ncely and had been advised that "it would be wise" for Frankfurter to be in Washington today so that he would be available if the committee desired to question him. "There is little or no opposition to Mr. Frankfurter's nomination," Ncely said. "However, in view of the controversy that resulted from the Senate's speedy confirmation of the nomination of Justice Hugo L. Black, it is deemed wise to scrutinize all future Supreme Court appointments thoroughly."

HARRISBURG, Jan. ' 7.--V:rtual elimination of the eisht-mill personal property tax and limitation of the five-mill "emergency" capital stock; levy, perhaps below the present rate, will be oustanding recommendations of the Dent Commission assigned by the 1937 Legislature to study the effect of taxation on Pennsylvania industry, it was learned today. Chairman of the group, · Senator John H. Dent, D., Westmoreland, told the United Press a rough draft of the report had been prepared and Uiat the final version will be submitted to'the 193D Legislature early in the session. The commission will meet here January 18. Dent would not reveal how strong his commission's report would go on the highly controversial issue of whether "emergency" relief taxation sponsored by the Earle Administration is "bleeding" the State o£ its industry. The fact it will urge tax repeal and reduction is significant. Some indication has already been given, as to what the report contains on this point. In its third preliminary report, the committee held "we are in a position to say that the migration of industries from Pennsylvania has reached a point where all. thoughtful citizens . . . may well pause to give serious consideration to the causes of these removals, and the painful consequences of this continued exodus of production, employment and payrolls from our state." Then during debate in the 1038 special session on Senator G. Mason Owlett's demand for the report, Dent asserted, "I refuse to be stampeded into hurting the people and industry of this State to please politicians who want to make political plunder of it." The personal property tax is collected on all stocks, bonds,. mortgages, annuities and similar investments held by individuals, and brings in $31,000,000 a year. Its primary effect on business and industry is to~ make investment offers less attractive a t thereby reduce the flow of credit available for expansion or establishment of plants in Pennsylvania. It also tends to discourage location of industrial plants in this State because of the cost to officials, who must live near their businesses, of carrying their investments. Corporations themselves do not pay personal property tax. Four of the eight mills collected on personal property is held by the State for relief purposes and the other four go to counties. It is sec- c .d to real estate taxation in importance to some counties. The committee is expected to recommend ts discontinuance on all Judge Soffel Will Address Bar Members Special to The Courier. UNIONTOWN, Jan. 7.--Judge Sara M. Soffel of Allegheny county will be the guest speaker at the dinner meeting o£ the Fayette County Bar Association Saturday evening, January 14, at White Swan Hotel.

ROME, Jan. 7.--United States and Italian oflicials joined today in a denial of persistent reports abroad that Premier Mussolini had rejected an appeal by President Roosevelt in behalf of Jewish refugees. An American embassy spokesman said that Mussolini had expressed his "sympathetic interest" in the President's suggestions, handed to him by Ambassador William Phillips, and had promised to give them careful consideration. It was expected that Mussolini would make his reply through the foreign office here to Phillips. business investment.paper. The capital stock tax is a five-mill levy paid by industries and businesses on their capital investment. Opponents of the levy charge it is a huge burden for business to carry in that it constantly reduces, capital investment. There was considerable agitation during the 1937 Legislature for reduction of the tax to three mills. The Dent report, it was learned, many recommend a limit be fixed at four mills. The seven per cent tax on corporate net income, another emergency levy, i t . was indicated, will not ba listed for repeal or reduction by the Dent commission. This tax is paid by corporations on their annual net income. , Dent said the report will point cut that all taxation is a buden on those who have to pay and will xirge that the load be equalized in accordance with ability to carry it. The Dent Commission was given $5,000 by the 1937 regular Legislature for its survey .and another $10,000 by the 1038 special Legislature to complete the work. Hearings were held throughout 1937 and part of 1938 in all parts of the State. Questionnaires were sent out by the thousands. Atmiittctl to Hospital.
