WASHINGTON, Jan. 3. — (ff) —The Dies committee placed responsibility on the labor department today for "large part" of subversive espionage, activities ' and propaganda in the United States.. Reporting to the house on five-months inquiry of un- American activities, the committee accused the department of failure . to enforce the deportation laws. 'The laxity with which the department of labor deals alien agitators would be with _ a unbelievable Yf we did not have before us the most convincing proof," the voluminous report said. "Due to limited time and funds, wo were unable to go Into this question as fully as it deserves.

Hopkins, former WPA administrator, it called fot legislation to "make impossible further offenses of this character. The senate must soon pass upon Hopkins' nomination .to be secretary of commerce. <t The committee, headed by Rep pies (D-Texas) asked a new ap proprlatlon of $150,000. I Foreign affairs also came into discussion during the opening day Chairman Plttman (D-Nev) of the senate foreign relations commit tee forecast a complete review o legislation Vfecting our relation With other nations. • Otherwise organization formall ties were the only business of th Jay as members awaited the pres identlal message. Asde from a forthright decla ration of foreign policy, it -was reported that his suggestions woul< %e less specific than usual, and that he would leave to congress the job of working out detailed legislation, No major changes of ' administration objectives wore ' forecast. i Speaker Bankhead told a radio audience last night, however, that '•vigorous efforts probably would be made to amend the farm law and the labor relations action. ^ Administration Aide. SI 1 Bankhead, whose office as speak», «r casts him in the role of an ad- fe ministration lieutenant, made this > statement on the political Issues which will be meshed with any I* legislative program: & ? Speaklng as one representative R of*the democratic party, I feel R, that iwe can not afford to overlook t the'results of the last election. fc y'l think it the part of political s'< expediency, as well as of public " service, to undertake to analyze, is far as we may, the causes of lithe increased vote by the opposition party." > Bankhead said that if the republican gains resulted from bad- f lyidrawn or unwlsely-admlnlster- ed <New Deal laws, congress should tfcke steps toward """"»»i«»»inn Kf*nB correction." ^ lllnternatlonal affairs and na- luster of preliminary activity, nd "freshmen" legislators wait- d impatiently to take their oath f office. There were off-the-record hud- les among legislators plotting ma- nuevers. Oldest members piloted •ounger ones to the senate and louse chambers. Much conversation in both par- ies dealt with the 1940 preslden- .lal campaign, and how it may be affected by the actions of con- tress during the next two years. Several potential candidates for ,he presidency are siting In the new congress. Texas democrats lave started a boomlet for Vice President Garner. How battle lines for tho session may be drawn remained a matter of conjecture. Democrats of all political complexions were start- Ing-with protestations of harmony, but It appeared likely that the informal coalition of republicans and anti-administration democrats would be found in operation before the' session ends. Sound Harmony Note House democrats sounded a harmony note yesterday when they unanimously renomlnated Speaker Bankhead and re-elected representative Rayburn (D-Tex) as majority loader. The action, similar to that by which senate democrats re-elected Floor Leader Barkley (D-Ky) last week was taken amid expressions of friendship and good will. House republicans unanimously picked Representative Martin (R- Mass) as their . candidate for speaker last night. But since the democratic majority had the votes to re-elect Bankhead at today's session, Martin automatically be- ames minority leader. Senator Mcary of Oregon was unopposed >r another term as minority ader in his chamber. In the senate, republicans have 3 seats, democrats 68, progres- ves 1, Independents 1, and far- ler-laborlte 2. The house has 61 democrats, 189 republicans, 2 rogresslves, 1 farmer-laborlto, nd 1 American labor party mem- er. There is one vacancy.

Speedy approval of a vast navy program for construction of air bases and other shore facilities was forecast today by- house members awaiting complete details of President . Roosevelt's armaments plans. The President Intends to send congress a separate message early next week outlining his Ideas for bolstering national defenses. It is expected to contain disclosures about the arms and potential munitions capacity of European countries. In the meantime, the navy recommended yesterday establishment or expansion of two- score bases for naval aircraft, destroyers, submarles munition pensable to enforce the deportation of the land." The committee was composed of Representatives Dies (D.-Tex.), as chairman; Mosler (D.-Olilo), Starnes (D.-Ala.), Dempsey (D.- N. M.), Healey (D.-Mass.), .Thomas (R.-N. J.), and Mason (R.- 111), all of whom signed the report, NI.RB Probe Suggested The committee expressed a belief that the national labor relations board .should be subjected to a thorough Investigation to determine to what extent board members and employes "approve the communist views" expressed by David J. Saposs, NLRB economist. In connection with the so-called Lansing, MicK, "holiday" whun a throng assembled at the state capitol, closed stores and marched on the state college, the report criticized "all public officials involved" for lack of courage in handling the situation. Attorney General Frank Murphy then was governor of Michigan. During its open hearings the committee received testimony that Murphy blocked enforcement of a court order directing the evacuation of sit-down strikers. Calling the Lansing occurren- cles "disgraceful," the committee said "a courageous stand" would have "avoided the loss of millions of dollars to both labor and capital." Urge Continued Probe Tho report, bristling with condemnation of communism, nazlsm and fascism, recommended that the 'house continue the investigation for two years with an appropriation of at least $150,000. The investigation should not be continued, it said, unless it has dequate funds. The committee, hich expires today, had $25,000 rlglnally. • "The congress should also .re- Baptist Women Of Kerens Met Monday In Regular Session KERENS, .Jan. 4.—(Spl.)—At the regular monthly meeting of the women comprising the Baptist W.

He presented It at the request of the Army and Navy Union, an organization of former service men. The navy report gave no estimate on the probable cost of the projects, but a much smaller program which failed of enactment last year called for an outlay of about $28,000,000.

It did not make specific legls- atlve proposals to curb unAmcr- can activities but indirectly re- erred to the necessity for reg- stratlon of alien groups, organl- ations and movements. Committee Findings. Some of tho committee's flnd- ngs are: 1. Communism, an integral part f a world revolutionary movement, works to embroil thla na- lon in a foreign war by propa- atlng the doctrine of collective ecurity; it is active in political artles, labor unions and schools, and has penetrated the government to such an extent that some ommunlsts hold key positions in ederal agencies and projects. 2. Nazi-fascist groups, like the lommunlst party, aim ultimately at the destruction of -the nation's ree institutions. These groups lave shown themselves "apt itudents of the communist tac- ics" and the three "Isms" become "more and more alike each year," 3. While congress can not deny citizens tho right to advocate communism, fascism or nazlsnr, it can "focus the spotlight of pub- Iclty" on subversive activities. . 4. Communism will not be able :o advance in tho face of a 'fearless and complete exposure" of its true nature. Its most com- non device in attempting to sl- ence criticism Is to charge critics with red-baltlng. High Sounding Titles. 5. Communist leaders • set up "front organizations" with "high- sounding titles and laudable objectives," most of whose members are unaware of the 'real control and Influence. 6. '.A thorough' investigation, of the west coast would demonstrate that the communists have "enjoyed greater success" • there than anywhere else in . the nation, HOUSTON, Jan. 8.—(ff)—Prison Manager O. J. S. Elllngson today said he "Intends to stay on the job" in answer to charges made by three members of the state prison board. Elllngson, named ' by three members In complaints charging inefficiency said: "I have no intention of resigning and have never submitted my resignation. As long as six members of the prison board are satisfied with my work, I intend to stay on the job." Dr. Sidney M. Lister, Houston board member, today answered critics of the prison manager with this statement: "Mr. Elllngson Is a hard working man. I happened to know that the majority of the board continues to be, as It* has been In the past, behind him." Dr. Lister's statement was Issued after Dr. C. W. Butler of Crockett, Mrs. C. A. Teagle of Houston and W. A. Boyett of Bryan, other board members, had concurred In a statement charging El- llngson with neglect. 'Their statement concluded: "The general manager's inefficiency and Inability to co-operate with his subordinates, and continuous -waste in the construction program, may lead to an early discharge of the general manager." The statement specifically charged the government's $7290 allotment for rice growing would be lost due to an oversight and neglect on the part of the gen~ eral manager; that Improper Instructions from the general manager caused the tearing out of a gable on a new building at the Clemens farm, that the oat crop was planted too late, and 600 acres of cotton was plowed up.
