As the former president planned to leave tomorrow for his Palo Alto home he left a somewhat divided opinion as to his own aspirations, among the more than two score political leaders and acquaintances who conferred with him. Opinion Divided One-group received what one of its members called a distinct impression that Mr. Hoover does not now intend to seek the position. There were others, however, who while not saying he would "seek' the nomination, asserted after talking with him that he would like once more to carry the Republican standard against Franklin D. To no one, so far as could be learned, did the former president say that if the nomination was thrust upon him he would decline to accept it. ]n one usually informed quarter it was asserted that Mr. Hoover felt he had much to gain by not making any open move toward the | candidacy. In the first place, it ng, the reunion was brought to an end at Shrine auditorium. Most of the oldsters were re- uctant to leave, in spite of two full days of celebration, reminiscence, and business, as gviests of the Arizona Republic. Museums Entertain During the day the "pioneers hac been received and entertained the Heard Museum, and the Arizona museum—both containing now priceless objects bringing- back potent memories of the early and hardy days of Arizona—had attended a business meeting of the Arizona Pioneers Association, and hac enjoyed an entertainment program prior to the final dance. The Arizona Pioneers Association, re-elected its officers—Charle 11. Clark, president, and Sharlot XT Hall, vice-president—and W. \V Brookner was rcappointed secre tary. All have se.rved in the same capacities for many years. It wil be President Clark's-13th consecu live lerm. Vote By Acclamation The elections were by unanimous acclamation, and ."President Clark hastened to announce that Brook ner would continue as a> mcmbe: of the-old-time pioneer triumvirate In solemn silence the honored roll of pioneer dead was read. Since the reunion of last year, 206 have gone to pioneer, in the unknown. "These," said President Clark "are men and women we all have known, with whom we iave worked and striven." There was a minute of silen prayer, with white and graying heads bowed in reverence. Honored Bp "Taps" Suddenly, slicing- through th' hush, came the clear bugle note of "Taps," in fitting requiem. ove the scattered graves of the honore' dead. , A bugler of -the Arizona Nationa uard performed the honorarj rite. Again solemnity entered the proceedings with presentation by President Clark, in behalf of the Arizona Pioneers Association, to the Arizona Pioneer Historical Society, of a bronze plaque in memory of Dwight B. Heard, founder of -the Arizona Pioneers Association, and- who conceived the idea of annual reunions, of pioneers. It was presented to the histori cal society to be perpetuated i memory of "a great man and great spirit." "Builded A State" In rec-flSving the plaque, Mr was said, his words would carry more weight than if be -were an avowed seeker after the nomination.' In the second, it was added, it he himself does not desire it then silence would give him more of a hand in the selection of a candidate when the time comes.

Neutral War Policy Shaped By President Program Would Bar Loans By Americans To Belligerents • WASHINGTON. Apr. 10.—(AP) — A strict neutrality policy to keep America free from entanglements in foreign wars was shaped today by President Roosevelt and Secretary Hull. The latter carried .to the White House the results of a still incomplete exploration of the intricate problems involved. His departmental aids have been conducting the study, which is to be made the basis for such a policy, for nearlj year. Favors Resolutions In apparently authoritative quarters, it was learned that Mr Roosevelt has ideas of his own on the subject. As part of such a plan it was said, he favors two resolutions introduced only yesterday by Chairman Nye of the senate munitions, committee and Senator Clark Democrat, Missouri, one of its members. These would Impose a .virtual embargo upon American loans to belligerent nations for the purpose of purchasing munitions or other contraband, and would empower the President to keep venturesome Americans out of war areas by the simple expedient of refusing^ them passports.

Testifying in the case which the coroner described as "touching certain human remains," Sir Bernard said he found three long strands of emale hair on the chest of the •ictim which he said might be a lue to the killer.

Premier Benito Mussolini, host or the conference, spent the afternoon and evening isolated on [sola Sella island, conference headquarters, going over his plan.of action 'or tomorrow with Fulvio Suvich, his under-secretary for foreign af- 'airs. Premier Pierre-Etienne Flandin and Foreign Minister Pierre Laval of France arrived at 10:35 p. m. to >e greeted with warm handshakes by Mussolini and Suvich. Soldiers On Guard Hundreds of soldiers guarded the station and nearby streets. After Mussolini's brief- greeting, a band played the French national anthem and the soldiers presented arms. The two (premiers -then passed :he troops in review,' after which ?landin and Laval drove to their lotel-through crowds of villagers. Prime Minister Ramsay MacDonald and Foreign Secretary Sir John Simon, Britain's chief conferees, were - speeding down from Paris aboard the Simplon-Orient express. They spent three feours in the French capital, to which they flew from London. They will reach Stresa tomorrow morning. " Delegations' Views The three delegations, information available this" evening indicated, looked iipon the parley thus; Great Britain—A ground for discussion in the course of .which some plan may be reached for bringing Germany into an agreement for collective security and back into the League of Nations. Italy—An opportunity; to reach an accord among the three powers, perhaps an alliance,'with which-to face Germany in case Adolf Hitler refuses to enter the proposed collective agreement. ' . France—A, chance for reconciling the Italian position, which she prefers, with the British, from which she is not inclined to move far. An authoritative spokesman said the British argument .is as follows: "Stresa should prepare the way for a larger conference in , which Germany may participate and enter a coHective system. MacDonald, therefore, is coming to Stresa without a definite plan but 'for a visit of exploration." . An equally authoritative source stated the Italian position thus: "' "The bigger commitment Great Britain makes on the continent, the less commitment she actually (Continued On Page 5, Col. 3) Roosevelt To ' Way To Prosperity* WASHINGTON, Apr. 10—(UP)—President Roosevelt believes he can- spend the nation out of the depression without using all of the $4,880,- Increase Puts Metal At 71 Cents Rebuke Rewards Efficient Police ST PAUL.

The CCC will continue its work in forest planting and control as well as erosion work and forest fire fighting. It is about the only recovery agency concerning which somebody in congress has not complained in the last two years.
