Second Part Paqes 11 to 20 VOL. 36, NO. 108. CONNELLrSVIULE, PA., FRIDAY KVBNING, MARCH 11, 1938. TWENTY PAGES. F. R. CALLS TV A HEADS ON CARPET Making Unusual Effort To End Fight Among New Dealers. MOVE MAY OR MAY NOT END TROUBLE By JOE ALEX MORRIS United Press Staff Correspondent. WASHINGTON, Mar. 11.--President Roosevelt has the three directors of the Tennessee Valley Authority on the carpet today in an extraordinary effort to end a quarrel threatening the New Deal's outstanding social and economic experiment. To the White House executive office, he summoned Dr. Arthur E. Morgan, chairman of the TVA board, and Harcourt A. Morgan and David E. Lilienthal, co-directors. Chairman Morgan is on one side o£ the bitter quarrel; Harcourt Morgan and Lilicn- thal are on the other. Mr. Roosevelt required them to give proof of their charges, one against the other-charges which have opened TVA to the attacks of its critics. Chairman Morgan recently has brought the agency's internal feud into the open by charging his associates with "bad faith." Lillcnthal and Harcourt Morgan have blamed "jealousy" for the chairman's attacks on their acts and motives, and accused him of resorting to obstructive tactics. The President, seeking only "facts" at the lockcd-door conference scheduled for 11 A. M., warned the directors that he would demand an accounting of their stewardship of TVA--a project of tremendous cost and importance to the Nation. Out of the Xacc-to-faco meeting of these four men may come developments of great significance to the Nation's economy as well as to Administration policy. It may end with or open the way for the peaceful solution which TVA's friends seek. Or it may end--and the Capital's veterans predict it will--with controversy over TVA administration boiling more fiercely than ever and headed for n sensational public examination before a congressional committee. The effect of such an inquiry on the Administration's power "yardstick" program would be unpredictable. Even as the angry TVA directors gathered for the confeicnce, rumor, speculation and debate indicated the intensity of feeling in the Administration and m Congress. Congressional foes of the New Deal's power policy reiterated that they would fight for a Senate investigation regardless of the outcome of the conference. Sentiment among senators indicated they commanded a heavy bloc of supporting votes. Rumors spread that Mr. Roosevelt was likely to remove all three directors in order to end the controversy, but Administration sources scoffed at the suggestion. Reports that members of the Federal Trade Commission had expressed opposition to the proposal of Senator George W. Norris, I., Neb., that the commission investigate the TVA were denied officially. Debate over whether the President had the pcwer to remove the TVA directors resulted in a general belief among the Senate's legal experts that he did have that power. Norris said he doubted it. An attempt to compromise the opposing Senate resolutions by Norris for nn FTC inquiry and Senator H. Styles Bridges, R., N. H., and Senator William H. King, D., Utah, for a Senate investigation were postponed bdt appeared foredoomed to failure. Speculation centered on whether President Roosevelt would attempt-as a last resort if necessary--to offset * congressional inquiry by appointing an independent board to inquire into the facts. It was recalled that he did as much in regard to government rcoiganization and threatened to do so on other occasions. Actually, there appeared to be little doubt that Mr. Roosevelt was withholding all decisions until after the White House conference, at which Secretary Stephen Early and a stenographer will be the only other persons present. Congressional leaders, too, postponed all action until after the conference. Charqes Against Lohr Dropped by Dog Officer Charges of harboring an unlicensed dog, preferred against Ray Lohr of U34 Queen street, were dropped by County Dog Law Enforcement Officer Peter Susano before Alderman Sarah Cohen when it developed that Lohr hnd made application March 3 for the license nnd was downtown getting the tags at about the same time the officer was at his home. Lohr's dog became six months of age last week and it was not until then that he was required to get a licence. Campbell Not President Then. Director Clyde S. Campbell jaid that he was not president of the Bo.ird of Education at the time the . ddrcsMOgrjph committee was named, stating the action took place December 13, 1335, and adding that a report was submitted February 3, 1936.

STUDENT ROLL SHOWS INCREASE There were five more students in the city public schools during the month of January than in December, which is quite unusual, Superintendent Bela B. Smith informed the Board of Education Monday night. He said this peculiar attendance should be additional incentive for the board to think hard of the houi- ing problem for the school children, adding that the task isn't only what to offer to the pupils but where to pla c them. President Clyde R. Weihe declared thai, the people of Connellsville, in evcit they were to proceed with providing additional housing facilities, had no assurance that the nonresident pupils would continue to attend the High School here, adding tahi. he felt the State Department of Public Education should designate the schools to which students would be required to go, especially in instances where it aids a district in paying a tuition bill. The superintendent said that the State was discouraging construction of small high schools. The board president then said he had been hearing reports of n projected building program, possibly by the State, that would result in erection of an auditorium on the lot at the Cameron school building, which would be given over to a gymnasium and a swimming pool, among other things. Mr. Weihe suggested to Solicitor S. D. Eracmer that he keep "his car to the ground" for additional information. Meyersdale Girl Shakespearean Contest Winner MEYERSDALE, Mar. II.--Mary Susan Collins, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. George W. Collins, a student in Meyersdale High School, won first place in the Shakespearean reading contest in the Somerset county eliminations of the Pennsylvania Forensic Music League. Second place went to Ernest Walker of Boswell and third to Ruth Bowers of Somerset Township High. Other contestants were Bcrnice Leatherman of Berlin-Brotherval- ley, Betty Nicholson of Rockwood, Marian Smith of Windbcr, James Woodward of Stonycrcek township and Betty Harding of Salisbury. Police Rue Evidence. SAN FRANCISCO, Mar. 11.-Preservation of evidence, when it comes to stench bombs, no longer will be insisted upon in local courts. In two recent cases where an effort was made to hold them for evidence, their presence not only forced the police officers to have their uniforms deodorized but even mtci ruptcd police business. DOCTORS URGE EDUCATION TO CURB DIABETES JBy United Press. BOSTON, Mar. 11.--Boston doctors, in a report in the Annals of Internal Medicine, declared deaths from diabetic coma, described as "shockingly high," should be reduced to 7cro through the education of physicians, patients, parents and diabetic children. The findings were based on n study of diabetes ranging over 15 years. "Since we have insulin," the report declared, "the death of a single child from diabetic coma signifies pure and unadulterated neglect nnd nothing else." Education, both of doctors called on to treat the disease and of diabetic patients, was emphai,i?ed Kb the remedy which already was effecting a "rapid decrease (in mortality), and during the next five years probably the decline will go on nnd be accelerated." Physicians themselves suffering from diabetes, the doctors said, "live with their disease between two and four times as long" as other diabetic patients. Education, they continued, should result in "deaths from diabetic coma dropping entirely out of the picture." Already, they pointed out, "the expectancy at life of a diabetic child has increased from one year to 31.7 years," but "yet we are only on the threshhold of still greater progress." At the bamc time, they sounded a warning that while "each diabetic child must be recognized as a coma possibility x x x for very obvious reasons the disagreeable symptoms attending the process as well as the discomforts of treatment should be stressed, else, in a moment of discouragement, patients might deliberately welcome it as a means to an end."
