Doubt Effective Defensx- It was not known whether the motor transports that had started to move westward from Benghazi were taking soldiers and war equipment or only civilians, but doubt was held that the Italians could .stop their retreat and organize any effective defense of Benghazi. There was dotibt also whether Marshal Rodolfo Graziani could spare any of his Tripolitan forces to aid the men fleeing toward Benghazi. Graaiani is believed to have only about three divisions. 45,000 men, in his main Tripoltan army and. he needed these to guard Tripoli and the frontier of French Tunisia where tens of thousands of French colonial soldiers would welcome an order to march into Italian 'territory, - .JrVthe'.ieveht the Italians decide to make a stand at Benghazi they will risk being completely wiped] out. in the house today.

She had lain by the road, in the ram. from 6 p.m. Sunday until 7 a.m. Monday, when the collie led Lonxo Caldwell, a farmer, to her. Residents reported that the dog —they did not know to whom ;it belonged—barked at several houses' during the night, and whined and scratched ac their doors. They ran. him away. Finally he attracted Caldwell's attention,, and led him straight tl the mother and her baby. Pnysiclans said the child weighed nine pounds, and was healthy.

Testifying against the British aid bill, he said the United States was free from invasion now but might become prey to a hostile power if it depletes its own defenses to aid Britain. Lindbergh said .he, did not believe Britain could win the war even with American help. He said that the United Status . therefore should "stop encouraging this war and throw the forces of the country, behind, a negotiated pence."

Federation Head Tells Group At Osceola Problem Is Production Limit OSCEOLA. I-Vb. ' G.-"Congr«>.ss holds the key to fnrni equity." Roiney R Short of Urinkley, president _ of the Arkansas Farm BU- reau Federation, (old liOO members of farm bureaus from .seven Noi-ih- east Arkansas counties attending u dLsirlet session here yesterday, "in i-onunSttoos and on the floor of the house uud senate will be solved, If solved nt. nil, tho problems wliich have grown eaeh year .since the 'World war until they have reached proportions .surpassing every other economic Issue In our national HIV." he added. "We have solved the problem of production, but the remaining problem Is to limit production to national needs, for wherever production exceeds national demands the fanner takes 50 cents Instead of the one dollar he hus earned," Mr. Short pointed out. "We' must now solve the Infinitely more difficult, problem of distribution nnd thnt will be done only through national legislation." Furmers On "Third Step" A member of the executive board of the American- Farm Bureau Federation and a well known student of agricultural economy, Mr. Short .said the farmers of the nation were on tho third round of the seven-rung ladder on which the farmers In every totalitarian nation and decadent power had traveled to "serfdom" Including Russia, Chlnu and India. Naming them In order as (I) In emergencies and depression private industry and institutions break down; ('>> Government comes to the rescue; (3) Cooperatives become cooperatives In name only (as he said would occur If the Jone.s-Wheeler bill is enacted); 14) Government monopolizes the farm credit system; (6) Credit 'policies become confused' with political and social policies; (6) noncommercial agriculture develops; 17) Then farmers find themselves tied 'to the land as. "serfs." ^Criticizing,.,,:'certiun >•- trends!.' >,,iiv national agricultural pc-JieJea designed to lead to subsistence farming, he asserted that these cun only be stopped by an alert, mlllr tant and aggressive farm organisa- tion strong enough to. take tiielr fight to congress and assemble their manpower 'behind their' leadership.. In 1909, Mr: Short said, Arlciil- ture, Labor and Industry were receiving parity prices for their products, while today. Agriculture Ls receiving less than 75 per cent of Industry Is getting half again, and Labor Is receiving twice parity; in other words, the farmer Is on half-rations and the other groups on double rations. Labor Lobbies Busy Industry and Labor lobbies have been on the Job for years and arc- firmly entrenched' In Washington. Clever diplomats and highly paid experts and economists pour Into the halls and committee rooms of the House Office building when any important measure is up In either House.' "They speak with the voice of 9,000,000 members," Mr. Short said. "In striking contrast, Ed O'Neal, president of the American Farm Bureau Federation, stands almost alone—representing 400,000 farmers."

Due to a Denver traffic regulation allowing unrestricted parking In that area, the body was not found for four days. Several residents of the area phoned police that the car. had been parked there unusually long, but when officers Investigated, they found the door locked, eveiy thing apparently in order, and no "wanted" stolen order for it in their files. Cm the following Saturday—Jan. 4—another officer broke open the door and discovered Chandler's body beneath the blanket. An immediate investigation was begun by Denver officers, who found that Short was the last man to have seen Chandler alive. At. first the private denied all knowledge of the killing, saying that he left Chandler early New Year's eve and hnd not seen him since. However, several parts of his story didn't jibe. He paid off several debts when he had been known to be broke except for the $10 he drew as mess money on Dec. 31. Officers continued their grilling, and finally on Jan. 7 he told Capt. Childers that he was "ready to tell it all." Chandler's pockets contained 42 cents when his body was found. He was known to have drawn $93 in pay, and officers at the army hospital described him as the type of man who wouldn't spend $100 in nver celebrating- New Year's eve. Short said the killing was a "mistake." but Capt. Chllders described it as "one of the most carefully planned" he ever saw. When the confession was signed, officers learned that the killing took place Just outside the hospital gates. Tlius the matter of jurisdiction, which had .been bothering Denver and Adams county officers, was settled. As the killing occurred in Adams county, Short was moved to Brighton and heldi for trial. Simon said that he had not yet secured all the evidence and the total number of witnesses he needed for a trial against Short. He first-degree murder conviction.

It was said that Britain's factory dispersal system nnd the attitude of British trade union leaders with whom he had long and earnest conferences, were, phases of the war situation that impressed Wilikie deeply.
