Besides, it is a surrender by ongrcss, in advance of a war, to dictatorship. It claims to prevent roflteering and to equalize the bur- ens of war--and docs neither. It aims to provide for the national do- ense, and in no way does so. It says tat it is 'to promote pjace' and does ic opposite. We favor a bill to tilke the profits ut of war and promote peace. If ongrcss is not courageous enough o adopt such a bill, the matter might s well be dropped." The extension of the House Naval .Hairs Committee hearings beyond ic original schedule was due chiefly 6 Congressional clamor for more dc- illed information as to American oreign policy.

"For present purposes," Hull wrote, 'I may say the proposed program docs not contemplate the use of any of the units in cooperation with a r y other nation in any part of the world. To be still more specific, f may say that the policy I announced our- ng last August is still being strongly observed; that is that this government carefully avoids, on the on land, extreme internationalism with its political entanglements, and, on the other hand, extreme isolation with it.s tendency to cause othc nations to believe that this n.ition more or less afraid; thnt while avoiding any nllianccs or cntanglinr commitments, it is appropriate nm advisable, when this and other coun tries have common interests am common objectives, for this Govern mcnt to exchange information with governments of such other countries to confer with those governments and, where practicable, to proceed on parallel lines, but reserving alw.iy the fullest freedom of judgment an right of independence of action" omersel Coroner To Hold Inquest Info Confluence Crash DEMOCRAT HEADS DON'T LIKE LEWIS DIRECTING SLATE Special to The Courier.
