PAGE TWO SANTA CRUZ SENTINEL, SANTA CRUZ, CALIFORNIA Saturday, March 23, 1940 Washington. March 22. The trouble with the speech for which James -H. R. Cromwell, new young millionaire minister to Canada, is being taken to task, is that this kind oi talk from officials of the United States arouses false hopes in London and Paris. The Allied peoples are apt to expect that we are about to go sailing across the Atlantic with another army. When that doesn't happen, and it isn't likely to happen, they are going to think we have let them down. Young Cromwell idealized the Allied case somewhat but he substantially reflected the attitude of this administration and of a large proportion of the people of this country, when he made it plain that he preferred the ways of the English and French to those of the Hitler regime. It is idealizing the case to say that the Allies are "fighting for the perpetuation of individual liberty and freedom." The Allies are fight-ing far their lives. They are not fighting for Czecho-Slovakia. for Poland, for Finland. They are fighting far England and France. Thtty went to war when all other meant of checking the advance of Hitler failed. They let him have Austria and Czecho-Slovakia, thinking tlat he might be content. When he wnt into Poland it was clear that he would stop only when he was prevented from going further. WithHhat England and France went in. l is a fight to determine whether Great Britain continues as top dog jr. whether Germany replaces her. Can't Ignore Realities Of Life In that sense, it is fair to say that this is a war between one old-established imperialism against a rising power that constitutes a dangerous challenge. But it is ignoring the .realities to end the statement of the case there. One rnust think of the kind of civilization and the kind of life that are found in Great Britain and France Then, one must think of the kind of civilization and the kind of life that Germany is establishing under the EDITORIAL remark, and without further parity the bargain was closed. Her, little flock were waiting for her in the churchyard around the corner and were de-lighjed to hear that she had found a snug house so speedily. The' landlord says he shall never trust a woman in black after this."

March 22 The film colony learned without much surprise today of the Lin Howard-Judith Barrett elopement They have been companions at film affairs since they met at a party a yea)- ago after a horse race. Only a few friends knew, however, of their plans to wed today Kenneth Walsh, a mutual friend, accompanied them. Mjss Barrett, the "Venus from Venus, Tex," was a Dallas .schoolgirl,' daughter of Cattle Rancher Sam Kel(y. She and her mother came to Hollywood a decade ago so she cruld study dancing. She has been rising rapidly in the movies for two years or .. Her latest picture was "Road To Singapore." in which she played the girl friend of Bing Crosby, who finally, lost him in the end to the wiles of Dorothy Lamour.

And Bussia goes in as part of that picture Which kind of Europe would we rather see? Which kind of Europe would be more to our liking and to our advantage? A Europe in which the instincts, patterns and methods of the British and French are dominant? Or one in which the instincts, patterns and methods of Hitler and Stalin are dominant" You don't have to paint the British and French governments as lily white, nor the German and Russian regimes as totally black, to have a choice. Those Americans who have spent even a little time in the four countries have no doubt as to which kind they prefer. l'. S.. British "Imperialism" Dovetail In terms of imperialism, the Brit-. ish imperialism and ours have dove-I tailed. Our systems of trade and exchange have been similar. Some I of our sources of vital raw materials (rubber and tin are under friendly j British control. We compete at j numerous points but it is a competition between kindred nations I playing the game with an essentially common set of rules. There isn't so much cricket in the way Hitler and Stalin play it. We are better I off under the status quo than under a shift of power from the British to the Germans. , That does not mean that Americans think the issue is sufficiently menacing to our national interest to i require that we do much more than i we are doing now. If any larger expectations are raised abroad by speeches like that of Minister Crom-Iwell they will prove illusory. Twenty .years ago this country went into the European war under circumstances somewhat like those of today, and the relief afforded to the hard-pressed Allies proved only temporary. Twenty years later the enemy was back at their gates. The country appears determined this time not to go out looking for bridges to cross, but rather to sit 'tight and see whether the danger to our national interests becomes more tangible.

March 22 iTY The new French government of Premier Paul Reynaud wrung an absolute majority of just one vote from the chamber of di-puties today but decided to stick it out and fight for its life. For a time it appeared that the Kraft radical socialist ministers headed by former Premier Edouard Daladier would dt ert the regime. But after an hour and a half's pow-wow. the unwieldly 22-man cabinet agreed unanimously to carry on. Whether this means a mere momentary arrangement or that by the time the chamber re-convenes April 2 Reynaud will try to whip up a larger majority, remains to be seen. At all events, the inner "war committee" formed by Reynaud to meet several times a week is gathering at 10 a. m. (4 a. m.. EST) tomorrow to get on with the little premier's promise to push the war. The government emerged from it-, first precarious day of existence shy only one man the Navy Undersecretary Jean Le Cour Grandmaisoii who resigned under pressure from his rightist party. There are now 12 undersecretaries in the new negime, making a total governmental group of 34. Reynaud gave several clear-cut pointers in his talk to the chamber which returned him a majority of one today. He said he intended to prosecute the war vigorously. Nevertheless, he intends to follow the policy of his predecessor, Daladier. in doing nothing rash. That is, he. like Daladier, will be "sparing in lives." He will continue a relentless fight against communism Speaking to the chamber, he said: "It (the communist party) is an organization of treason It acts against the country. We will crush it."

On top of these developments came word from Amsterdam that u British plane, apparently attempting to make a forced landing after a battle with several German planes over the German frontier, had crashed in flames in a Netherlands flooded defense area. The plane's crew presumably was killed. Three other British machines accompanying it were reported to have made their escape. Tonight, reports from off the Norfolk coast said, a German plane had attempted to bomb the Cromer Knoll lightship during the day. Holiday From War Despite this quickened tempo of the war, even British munitions workers took a Good Friday holiday.

Sutter hung his head and never once looked at the skeleton of the man he is accused of 'slaying for Mazennuer'.s $5300 bank account and automobile. Police said he admitted previously he shot an intruder on his ranch two years ago. then discovered the man was Mazenauer, became panic-stricken, and then buned the body. Capitola Capitola, March 22.

THR ASH Killer Of Own Family Flayed In Sentencing Los Angdes, March 22 (fP). "A diabolically conceivi'd and ruthlessly executed plot." A judge hurled that description of the killing of his family at Laurel H. Crawford. 41-year-old world war veteran, as he sentenced him today to life in prison and recommended no parole ever be granted. And for the first time, when it was all over, the attitude of calm which has been Crawford's suice his arrest, was shattered. Led back to hi cell, he sobbed bitterly: ' It's a crooked world! There's nothing to live for. I didn't kill I swear I didn't. I was framed on a bunch of trick questions, just as the officers told me I would be if I didn't confess that I drove my loved ones over the cliff." Crawford's expression changed not the slightest in court as he heard Judge Clarence L. Kineaid's sentence, made mandatory by a jury's recommendation for leniency. But when he broke down in his cell, muttered "there's only one thing left" and "thank God, there's no one to leave behind," county officers ordered a special guard. He will be kept here pending an appeal. Crawford was convicted of deliberately driving his car, contained his wife. Elva. 41; has three children, Alice 15. Paul 10. and Betty, 8, and a roomer at his home, Ralph Barnett. 61, off Mt. Wilson highway and down a 1000-foot cliff December 11. All were killed. The state charged $30,500 in insurance which the mechanic carried on his family was the motive, lhe complaint charged him only with the deaths ol his wife and children.
