"And this was the first step of the present turmoil m the vvoild." The congicssman cited the case of Italy's invasion of Ethiopia (Italy also was a signatory) and of its con- iiscation of Abyssinia.

Mi. Rooscvent's attitude had indicated i cccntly. he chai ged, that certain alignments had been made with several foreign powers. H was because of his work in the Velevans of Foreign Wars, militant jn its campaign to keep this nation out of Euiopcan affairs, and tneie- loic none could question the sm- ceiity of his efforts, that he was granted the piivilcge of challenging the President in Congiess. "In my first appearance In the halls of Congiess, I was given the privilege ot challenging the President's foreign policies," VanZandt said He then followed up, he said, v. ith newspaper ai tides and radio MOTORISTS WOVT GET LICENSE APPLICATIONS IF ADDRESS; INCORRECT Does the State Department of Revenue have your correct address?

That is, he said, until the recent crash on the west coast of an Aimy bomber, investigation of which icvcaled a French miiitai y attache "was a passenger in the ship. The airplane mishap, Congressman VanZandt declared, revealed to -he American people that alignments existed between this Nation and Euiopean powers*. "You must have faith in CongresF for trying to pull from the President his alignments nnd his policies," the speaker said. "Then, and only then, will we be ible to build a policy of national defense." "I believe the position I have taken in Congttt-s has won the popular suppoit of the people. The hundreds' of Ictteis I'\e received since my radio addiess l«*ss .than a week ago contained but a few tnat werr of a critical natuie, the others being of commendation," he said. Congressman VanZandt declared "the American people stand- united against this country's involvement an an entanglement or alliance with any European power." He predicted that if any foreign power would ever comn to tne American shores "that old Yankee spirit will rise up and overnight we'd have an army, nav^ and Diane power that would reaailj repel and destroy the invaders." The congressman called on the V. F. W. and ^ts auxiliary to push ahead the piogtam of the national commander. He said he had been named a member of the World War legislation committee in Congress and was preparing to "put over the barrel" the spokesman of the Ameiican Veterans Association, reputed foe ot benefits to veterans and their dependents, when he appeared before the committee this week. "RIy job is to show to my colleagues just who are the financial angel's of this 01 gamzation and why," the congressman sa.d.
