PRACTICAL POLITICIANS SEE FAILURE IN ATTEMPT TO FORM LIBERAL PARTY ®- Keen liitorest, Howerer, in Movement Launched by Samuel Harden Church. WOULD DRAW WET ELEMENT By THOMAS TX STOKES,' "Unit*" 1 **"» Staff Correspondent. WA 2 a CON, Feb. 11.--Seasoned , oolitic, eaders ar watching with keen, interest development of the infant movement for a third party built along slight] v new lines--a liberal party pro£e*sin.g tolerance in all things as its underlying purpose. Most practical politicians are frankly skeptical at success for any such new party as proposed by Samuel Harden Church, president of the Cav- negle Institute, at a recent meeting ot the Association Against the Prohibition Amentment. Some few, how- rvor, connect it with current restlessness with tho existing political order and wonder it it may not produce iomething, if not in tho near future, perhaps at a more distant date. Church's idea is to draw from both llio old parties liberal elements whoso aim would bo to work for "abolition uE hypocrisy, fanaticism, and cowardice, of which there is so much among Democrats ard Republicans." It would go beyond a fight against prohibition and embrace a campaign against religious intolerance, as wet,l. That there are not only many of the rank and file but alsso leaders who are ready to throw aside an old party iabel and pick up a now ono was demonstrated hi tho la«t campaign when some old-line Republicans de- sertod their parly and voted for Alfred K Smith. It Is this class among which tho leaders of tho new movement plan to do .their first work, apparently. They also regard as significant continued dissatisfaction among responsible party men with their parties, notably tho rocent denunciation of tho Republican party in the House bc cause of its staud on prohibition by Itepresentative James M. neck of Pennsylvania, former so' id tor general ot the United States and similar criticisms. The most formidable of recent third parties went down to defeat--the Roosevelt "Bull Moose" movement in 1912 and the I^aFollette independent campaign for the Presidency in 1924. These failure i are cited by those who express doubt ot the success of a new third party movement The Republican party has become The prohibition party, though it has many dissenters. The Democratic party is neitier. having- ite wet and BERtEY TRIAL Continuoil from Page Ono, counsel. In addition to asking binding instructions fur the 15 defendants, defense attorneys submitted 20 points for tho judge to comment on in his charge to the j u t y . J. C. Tucker of Garrett, also named as a defendant in the true bill, IB not on trial because of serious iillness Besides Iformei Judge Berkoy, the case's of these defendants will be given to tlie jury Footer Zipgler, Ed Darlr, Victor G!e;,sner, Hurry S. Sel- lerSj James Mclntyre, John Griffith, John Sherman, John Clarke, John Gress, Petiw Han Ion, William Ditman and John E. Cut tear. Thu array of defense lawyers was increased to 10 j estorday when Mrs. Dorl^r R, Heckm^n ot Somerset took her place ia^theii midwt after she was sworn as i»n attorney to practice in Ffideral court. Sds is associated with Attorney Clarence L. Shaver ot Somerset, also a de-iense counsel, Mrs, Heckman* is the only woman lawyer in Someraot county. Tho court ove-ruled a motion by Attorney qeorgo D. Wick, representing Ditman, to st-ike from the record all testimony regarding slot machine activities as not having a bearing on the national prohibition act. Judge Berkey denied he had an agreement with Ditman aivd Hanlon to operate slot machines and that 20 per cent of receipts itiould be jiaid to hie campaign funds. Ho said protection waa never given ty him to sell liquor or to operate slot devices. Berkey declare! the "Public View" was established tor the purpose ot disseminating court news. Berkey told of talking to Burgess Beachy in his chambers on on'e occasion and accu Ing him of having conferred with newspaper men and Government agents to ruin his good name. He told j'.eachy, Berkey said, that his office w is the headquarters o-t the probers. The witjaess dt uied that Attorney Joseph Ma her ha 1 a case before him at the tima Welsh had testified. Berkey said h^e had transferred the trial to another) judge. On erosjs-exam (nation, Berkey assorted he needed a newspaper to defend himself and let the public form it* own opinions. He said Imler and olhers started to - ritielsft him because ha would not ghe them advertising. He declared he had launched tho p.iper to encourage party regularity. He asserted his policy always had been "to teeep the Democratic party out of power." The witness was shown a copy of the- "Public View" to contradict his statement that no person during part dry factious which are at war with (of 1929 knew w] at hiss political iu- onc another, so that la a national election no tM.ited front can bo shown. petitions were. The paper contained a statement that ht would run for rc- Kortner Senator P-ruco ot Maryland, \ election as judge on the non-partisan nationally V.uown Democrat, it» j tickdt. The sam isue contained a among those who take very sharp issue with th-* dry wins'* of his party and has become otto ot the leading f i g u r e s in tho n oveme/it tor A new political deal. W h e n such moc as Beck and Bruco --tuvJ there are- others who, privately, art tlissatiHed--publicly denounce t h e i r parties, it -S considered significant, and Is bo regarded by Church and those who a v o working with him tor tho new part). The- original Keublican party grew out of a bltiulioii in some respects similar to the present one. The Whig party had outlived UK usefulness and grown moribund. Founders of tho Republican purty in the fifties capitalized the grovlng discontent with nn old order, and fought the powerful established order on the issue of that clay, slavery. That was both an economic and a moral light. The party won a presidential election only a few years after U waa founded, putting Aibraham Lincoln in the vVhite- House, duo ts a division among the Democrats and Jio dissolution of the Whigs. A ue-w party today would have to drive- u wedge, similarly, into the ranks of both old parties in the opinion it political observers. Church's hope to found a new party on the general idea of tolerance and then evolve its position on such economic issues sis the tariff, business, world peace. Some see in this a possible weakness. There is at the present time in this country the basis of a new political party founded on ec-onomi-cs, many believe, There lias becu much talk of the posslbiiit yot a third party com- tiuing progressive western Republicans and liberal Democrats, built about the present Democratic-Western Kepublicau t.irift' coalition in the Senate. Many of tho loadeis of this pros- pocti'Vi" tiue-up however, are dry. The new liberal party probably never would draw tome of thsii, though t h e i r economic philosophy might bo similar. Similarly, the pioposed liber«.'! party, H ib pointed out, would draw many voi wealthy meu who are Uberal ns t o w a r d s prohibition and religion but who do not hold economic theories ho-ld by a minority o£ the present Republican and Democratic parties. j copy of a petltioi. for nomination. Claude A. M. Welsh was called in rebuttal. He denied t h a t he hud told Attorney Archibald Meyers that the prosecution of Berkey and others was a "dirty trick and it was a political move." He also t.iid be had not made a faimllar statement to Miss June Werner, the prothouotiiry of Somerset county. James Lecbtemby ot Meyersdalo testified he was i member of the citizens' eommttt, e during the tiro- men's convention, lie declared no person was authorize d to see Berkey for police protection, Lechtemby also was a witness called by the Government in rebuttal.

Although the United States is a butter importing o u n t r y , a great increase in the use of butter substitutes would decrease tho world demand for butter, cause the Avorld price to decline, and finally causa butter prlccs f in tho United States to be lower. The increasing i onsumptian of butter substitutes In European countries is a factor of gro vlng importance as affecting both the demand for butter In importing countries and tho surplus In butter exporting countries. Margarine consumption in'Germacy now exceeds bulk r consumption. In Denmark and The Netherlands the exportable surplus of butter is augmented by the uu-e ol margarine in :iom-e consumption The increased iisd of butter substH utos in European countries is attributed in part to material improvement in the quality ol 3uropean margarine." Foreign produc ion of butter in recent years has followed much tho same upward trend as that of tha United States. Relatively low Arher- can butter prices d'uring much of tho pust year have d scouraged imports into tho United S ates and produced a slight export bal inco. New Zealand butter shipments (o Canada continue to increase, but of 'he Canadian cream arid tnllk thus displaced some 20 per cent iebs t h a n in the previous year was hold in the Ui Ited States in 1939 Other factors in tho current international dairy t tuadon are thai.
