Under tho captain "rlsturbance of the Christmas Peace," the service said: "Senator Plttman's declaration constitutes a carefully timed brutal .disturbance of the Christmas peace. "Whyat cynical baseness and at the same time what Impudent smugness is apparent from those utterances by a man who, as committee chairman (of tho senate foreign relations committee), occupies a position of responsibility, yet who acts with complete Irresponsibility. Didn't Ask People "He didn't ask tho American people, yot he considers himself authorized to Insult a great European power In such an unbelievable manner. "After all he must know he insults the German people in Its In- tlrety and in all its strate when ho arrogates to himself such an expression of opinion." Tho propaganda ministry spokesman, in stating the "Ickes Incident" was closed diplomatically, declared: "We don't think uterances like Ickes' help promote tho Christmas spirit."

The award to the Japanese of the highest Gorman decoration at this time was' regarded In some diplomatic quarters as an Indirect reply to Plttman In emphasizing the solidarity of tho Japanese and 'German governments. Recalls Elections. Deutscher Dienst, in its comment on thet Plttman statement, recalled the German elections— which were almost 100 per cent for tho government—and contrasted thorn with American elections. 'It is therefore understandable," It said, "that insolent effusions of this queer parllamcnarlan, who evidently acts as an exponent of certain sufficiency notorious democratic Jewish clique in America, call forth tho deepest ronenthient in the entire German people. "The form of tho state of the German roich is solely the business of tho Gorman people who owe no accounting for It to any other country, least of all to Mr. Plttman and 111* wire-pullers," It then developed Uio thesis that the" alleged clique, Deluding Ickos, Pittmon and formlor Ambassador Dodd. was doing everything to prevent better relations between Germany and tho United States.

CONGRESSIONAL OPPOSITION IS DEVELOPING OVER PRESIDENT'S RAIL COMMITTEE PROPOSITIONS WASHINGTON, Doc. 2-1.—(/!>Congressional opposition developed today to somo recommendations of President Roosevelt's special committee on railroad legislation. Chairman Wheeler (D-Mont) of the senate Interstate Commerce committee and Senator Norrls (Ind-Neb) said they would fight any effort to repeal the long- and-short haul rate clause of tho Interstate Commerce act. » This clause prohibits railroads from charging less for a long haul than for a short haul over the same route In tho same direction. Its repeal was one of the recommendations made by tho committee. Tho committee told the President yesterday that government "fnvorltolsm" for competing forms of traffic had contributed to tho railroads' financial difficulty. Tho President appointed the committee, representing railroad management and labor, to prepare a legislative program for rehabilitating the debt-burdened carriers. Mr. Roosevelt may not, how- over, endorse all the committee's recommendations. It is up to him to decide which of them shall be submitted to congress. Most of the committee's recommendations parallel closely long time legislative objectives of the Association of American Railroads and proposals which have been made by tho ICC. The group proposed a modlifcatlon fo existing restrictions on RFC loans to railroads; that reduced government freight rates be eliminated; that the government bear tho cost of grade crossing eliminations and help pay for the work mndo necessary by Federal projects; that "unjust" state and local taxes be repealed, and that the government pet out of the Inland waterway business In addition to establishing a toll system for commercial use of certain waterways. The committee also proponed that the government leave to the Initiative of the railroads tho matter of consolidations, subject to approval of tho proposed new transportation board.

Roberts was shot in tho log, the wound apparently having boon Inflicted during a chase of a stol- on car that preceded the gathering of tbo posse.
