Franco Prepares For Teruel Siege; Reds Hold Fast Grim Reaper F. R. Will Continue ~ Conferences With - Business Leaders By United Prcw. -· WASHINGTON, Jan. 7--President Roosevelt today indicated that he would have.further conferences concerning the business recession.' ~ The President 'g.ivc this indication .when he .was asked concerning his discussion' yesterday with President William S. Knudscn of General Motors Corporation. He pointed out that he was hopc- "ful of receiving suggestions .from Knudscn;-but mode it clear their discussions were not yet ended. The President was .asked whether he favored subsidy of the press through rates to newspapers and magazines in their handling by the Postofllce Department. He WPS reminded that last year it cost the Government $38,000,000 to carry newspapers through the mail while the return in postage to the Government was only $9,000,000. For the same period, he was informed it cost the Government $33,000,000 to carry magazines while the return was $9,250,000. ·" The President obscrv'e'd " that it was not "a healthy thing but suggested that the reform be under- jlaken by some agency other than tho Government. ; He pointed out-thai the practice of .giving low rates- to .newspapers and magazines began in the early days, and was based on the theory that many communities had. no other means of-receix'irig the news cxccpl through the daily press.

One building, a two-story frame structure housing a beer tavern, store and dance hall was abandoned when it settled four feet into the mine tunnel, and five families were forced to evacuate when three nearby buildings began to list. ,Walls of some of the buildings cracked in places as the ground sloped away. A heavy ralrf which beat down on the town during the night added to the danger.-.:. .,,.. .. -The mine, reportedly , owned"' by Charles Lizzie,-"of -LntrobE, -'was opened two years ago".'-- -·'-"---'·'-' ·.

H12NDAYE, French-Spanish Frontier, Jan. 7.--Guaidcd reports from nationalist Spain indicated toU.iy tint the instil gent:, hud abandoned hope of taking Terurl with present forces and had begun preparations Or a long-scale light in hope a decisive victory would smash the loyalist regime. Both sides reported heavy ft.;h'.ing. But the loyalists, expressed confidence .hat their lines would hold and co- ncidcnlly information from the nat- onalist side was that the present Ighting was only preliminary -ind did not constitute an^iltempt to .torm the city.. Information reaching the 'rentier 'rom the nationalist .side was that he terrain about Tcruel was most dif- icult--a ring of mountains surround- ng a city which it.sclf was on a central hill, separated from the outer ring by a valley. It was also said that Generalissimo Francisco Franco was unwilling to sacrifice thousands of lives by frontal asasiilts on foi mi'dablc positions hold by the loyalists. Hence, the information \vas, if 'feeling" attacks,--tome in considerable force--m the next few days did not succeed, he planned to start an operation similar to that which won him the Bay of Biscay coast. That ivould mean the massing of his btst men, Italians and Moors and Fascist nnd Carlist militiamen, and a milo by mile advance in close order. Sharp Charges Mark Battle Between CIO, Jersey City Mayor By United Pros. JERSEY CITY, N. J.. Jan. 7.-Battle lines for continuation of the bitter struggle between Mayor Frank Hague and the Committee for Industrial Organization were clearly drawn today, each having accused the other of being a "menace to the Nation" and having pledged themselves to a "finish fight." Climaxing a fight of several months' duration, Huguc spoke last night at a rally sponsored by the Jersey City Chamber of Commerce. His speech was carried over a nation-wide radio hook-up. He said the CIO represented the "forces of intimidation," that its leaders were Communists who have "marked Jersey City for destruction" and declared that he would continue to prohibit tho, organization existing here. At the conclusion of his speech Morris Ernst and Dean Spauldinc Frazcr of the Newark Law School both acting as special counsel for the CIO spoke over the same radio hookup in rebuttal. Addressing Hague directly, Ernst said: "You arc a danger to the American Nation because you arc the basic radical of our day, radical in the sense that you are going back on the founding fathers and our Bill of Rights. "The fight is on. We are not going to stop until that town is open to the traditions and the folklore of the American people." The fight began several months ago when the CIO started a unionization drive in Jersey City. Several organizers were arrested, others deported Those arrested served five days in jail. The State Supreme Court now is deliberating the propriety of the sentences.. Following the arrests, the CIO made repeated attempts to hold public meetings hero but police prevcntec them. Hague spoke to an estimated 20,000 within the National Guard Armory and some 50,000 standing outside the building who heard his remarks over amplifiers. Governor-elect A. Harry Moore, a Hague political protege presided. The mayor, boss of the powcrfu Hudson county and state Democratic machines, received thunderous applause as he took the dias. He described his CIO boycott as an effort "to protect our city from invasion by the Communists and other red groups operating under the mask of a labor organization." MRS.

GARGLING IS the most popular method o£J local treatment in sore throat, and colds. It« popularity rests on the fact that you can do It yourself. In fact, Ilka blowing your nose, nobody cl«e can do it for you. The first ul- trosclentlflc inv e s t 1 g ator of gurgling woa an X-ray man by the name of Haasc. He took X-ray pictures of people gar- fling with an opaque fluid--a barium suspension such aa is Dr. Clcndenlng; used in examination of the stonv ucli, and reported that the gargling lluld does not reach the tonsils or the back of the soft palate. His findings were confirmed by Snow and Stern in New York, who used the some method and found that during gargling; the tongue Is firmly pressed against the soft palate in such a way that liquid cannot reach the back regions of the throat. Then came a Dr. Walker, of London, who reported an invest!, gallon In. which he had ten pa. tlents gargle with a solution of methylene blue. An examination made immediately a f t e r w a r d showed that In no case had the fluid reached the tonsils, the back of the soft palate, or the back of the throat. From this, he said, he reached the conclusion that gargling wa« an entirely inadequate means of Introducing an antiseptic medication to the tonsils or palate. So much for the evidence against gargling. In defense, there came Dr. Kounltz of New York, who replied to th« X-ray men that there was a good deal simpler way of finding \vhcther a solution of barium, which Is visible s a white paste to the eye, has reached the parts or tnc tnroat intended, and that in by looking In the throat after the gargle. If anyone will take the trouble to examine the throat of a person who has just gargled with a suspension of barium, he will find that every port of the mouth and throat, Including the tonsils, the soft palate and the pharynx, if coated. With the "commotion that occurs" during gargling, can anything else be expected ? Mcthylono Blue Won't Stick His reply to the methylene blu» experiments Is that you cannot make methylene blue stick to tonsils or the soft palate. It will dy» the tongue, but that is all. Therefore, the methylcno blue experiments are entirely discredited. Finally, we have the advice of Dr. H. L. Swain, of New Haven, that the thing that Is needed Is instruction in expert gargling. Hli advise Is that "The person should first swallow the fiuld he is about to gargle, with the mouth wide open, head well back, and then gargle it around, as is the usual practice, as long as his breath will permit." The point seems to be that it In unnecessary to make the many melodious sounds as of a babbling brook in a great hurry, in order to do good gargling, but to move tho fiuld around as much as possible with the muscles of the throat and then, as you let the air bubbles! come through, throw the head for-' ward so that some of the fluid will go out through the nose so that, In this one comprehensive act, you will reach the mouth, pharynx, throat and all the accessible parts of the nose. ·" The purpose of gargling is not so much to introduce an antiseptic fluid, 03 to Introduce a hot fiuld and produce counter-Irritation and thus relieve Inflammation as we do with hot water bags and all other forms of heat. The best solution for gargling is the simplest--hot salt solution. The final judgment as to whether yoar gargling docs any good is whether it makes you more comfortable or not.
