Dictatorships also were raked over the coals before the committee voted 7 to 4 a favorable report on the bill, by Rep. Alfred Petsch of Frederlcksburg. Judge J. H. Baugh of the Austin court of otvll appeals brought the communism issue out into the open after a few earlier Interrogations by Rep. James Goodman of Midland had hinted the question would be raised. Judgo Baugh, proponent of the bill, was the closing speaker and said the communist intertanionale was working through American student groups to spread Us propaganda, fie said the student organizations were being used as dupes. He told Rep. Lelghton Cornett, foe of the bill, he did not believe the students were communists .Insisting they were being used as pawns. ,^,, Cornett, arguing vigorously \ against the measure, said "a situation worse than civil war will prevail if military training Is placed on the unverslty campus." v Judge Baugh read excepts from reports on communist Investigations by congress. He also read reports from communist papers referring to the American student union as "one of the greatest triumphs in the United States." No Danger of Militarism. Asked whether military training might develop militarism In the United States, Judge Baugh replied "there Is no danger of Uje $r.fted States going militaristic. But we ought to have the fore• sight to realize the need to look out for our own safety." L, Cheers, boos, handclaps and hlss- 4 punotuated the hewing. The demonstrations came from a comfortably filled gallery and floor. Petsch opened the hearing with an explanation of his bill. Prior to vote ho offered an amendment which, in effect, directs the re- onts to request the war and navy epartments to establish and maintain courses in military and naval training, and qualifying men student graduates for reserve commissions. The course would not be required as a condition for entrance to or graduation from the university. Arguments In favor of the proposal wore made by H. W. Gully, engineering school student at the university; Col. Ralph IDurkeo of San Antonio, an official of the reserve officers' association; Dr. Andercon Fitzgerald, professor in the school of business admtnlstra- tion; Adjutant General Knox and Judge Baugh.

WASHINGTON, Feb. 7. -W—Chairman May (D- Ky) said today the house military committee had unanimously approved leg- slation to authorize the ma- por part of President Roosevelt's $552,000,000 special defenso program, including ex- lanslon of the army air corps to p,500 planes. Action on tho bill came, he said, after republican membera of the committee sought unsuccessfully to limit the war depart- nent to production of no more .ban 1,000 airplanes in any fiscal year. Representative Andrews (S-NY), senior minority member, of the group, 'said the limitation propoa- il was defeated, 15 to 10, on 'straight party vote." May declined to say how the committee divided on his original iropoeal to give the air corps a :otal of 6.000 planes. "The bridle is off," he asserted. "They can buy these planes as fast as they can be built." WASHINGTON, Feb. 7.- The house military committee sought to wind up its work on the administration's defense legislation today and send the measure to the floor for Immediate action. Tho bill, embodying major portions of the $552,000,000 armament program, would authorize pur- Dhase of $300,000,000 of new planes Buying additional army equipment, and placing $32,000,000 in "educational orders." The latter would enable manufacturers to familiarize themselves with military needs. House leaders hoped to start debate Thursday. In addition to ADMINISTRATION TO DISCOURAGE ANY AMERICAN INVESTMENTS IN JAP CORPORATIONS FOR CHINA WASHINGTON, Feb. 7.— (IP)— The administration will discourage any American Investment, officials indicated today, In proposed Japanese corporations designed to develop Industry, commerce and agriculture in China. This attitude became known as the state department released correspondence dating back to 1023 which showed such a policy previously had been followed. Officials said the government's attitude remains exactly the same, "Recently intimations came from Tokyo that the development companies being formed there for the business Improvement of China would be open to American and other foreign capital." One of the state department's old communications declared: "In the opinion of the department It Is as a matter of general not desirable that American policy credit be placed at the disposal of foreign interests for investments or enterprise^ In third countries In oases in which the use of such American credit would tend to prejudice or circumscribe the opportunities for American enterprise or to further the organization of competition therewith." Officials said there was no doubt that the present Japanese develop ment companies would compote with American interests in China. Notes from the state departmont to Japan have complained specifically of the monopolies already being exorcised by such Japanese corporations. Discouragement of American Investment in such companies must be done through state department suggestion and not through any formal order. The effect a slate department suggestion might have, however, Is Indicated by the unanimous response that met Secretary Hull's appea Ito American airplane manufacturers not to ship planes to countries engaged In bombing civilian populations. Airplane shipments i populi Japan to Japan have ceased. JUDGE DISMISSED INDICTMENTS AGAINST MAYOR G. K. QUIN OF SAN ANTONIO AND TWO OTHERS the augmented army plane program, President Roosevelt recommended to congress yesterday that it spend an extra $6,723,000 for aviation research facilities. The money would supplement the regular appropriation for the national advisory committee of aeronautics. In the senate, the hot controversy over the sale of fighting planes to France brought a statement from Senator Nye (R-ND) that members of the military committee may be "forced" to give their version of what took place at a secret conference last week with President Roosevelt. Mr. Roosevelt has called "a deliberate lie" any statement that he told the committee America's frontier was on the Rhine. He also outlined the administration's foreign policy, saying It involved no "entangling alliances." Several committee members, con> tending that Mr. Roosevelt had given his version of the meeting, have suggested that he released them their pledge of secrecy. Nye said today he saw little chance that Mr. Roosevelt would do that. But, he added, demands for Information by other senators might make it Incumbent on those who attended the conference to report on It Although Nye and Senator Bridges (R-NH) have insisted that commltee members should be permitted to give their version of the White House meeting, it was apparent republicans would not act as a unit to bao!c up this demand. It was learned that Senator Mo- Nary of Oregon, the republican leader, had been urged to call a party caucus to consider the foreign policy problem, but had decided not to do so. Senator Capper (R-Kaa) aald that while there had been conflicting reports as to what occurred in the White House meeting, he felt the president's statement last week should be regarded as final. The senate recessed late yesterday until Thursday after Demo- cratlo Leader Barkley said there was no pending business. Pope Suffered Asthma Attack; Was Unconscious VATICAN CrrrT Feb. A Vatican news aervice aald' tonight Pope Plus had suffered an attack of cardiac asthma and was unconscious for more than half an hour. Physicians in attendance administered restoratives which brought him back to consciousness, the aervice said.

The service a abort time earlier had reported the pontiff had taken "a alight turn for the worse." It gave no details but other sources familiar with his condition aald an attack of influenza had developed into bronchial pnu- monla, In Vatican circles It waa regarded as almost certain the meeting of all Italian bishops, which the Pope waa scheduled to address Saturday in observance of the 10th anniversary of the Lateran accord between the church and the Italian state would have to be cancelled. It also waa considered unlikely the Pope would atte' 4 Sunday'a pontifical mass at St. Pete.-'s to inaugurate the 18th year of his pontificate, Second Victim of Highway Crash Died Monday Afternoon Oad Colbert, about 69 yeara, of Oklahoma City, who waa critically injured * early Thursday morning In an automobile crash near Angus, died at the p. and 8. Hospital Thursday afternoon at 3 o'clock. A. H. Meek, also of Oklahoma city, waa inatantly killed In the .oraah. Cblbert'e death waa the "• aecpnd" of the year from trafflo mishaps in Navarro county. By OUN W. CLEMENTS SAN ANTONIO, Feb. 7.-W- Exonerated of> charges of misuse of public funds, Mayor G. K, Quln, one of the head men of Boxar county's politics, today was ready for another fling at the mayorshlp of San Antonio. Quln's victory in court yesterday when Judge R. D. Wright of Laredo dismissed five indictments against the mayor and two city employes, R. Nelll Campbell and L. P. Bishop, not only gave Quln the exoneration ruling that he said he had expected but it may have paved the way for action today that may bring cleared names to several other Bexar county political figures who have been indicted. Judge Wright . that because Mayor Qi yesterday 3r Quln hi 1 ruled eld his political office that office did not make the mayor .custodian of the city's finances ' and therefore there has been no criminal action or misapplication of San Antonio's money in the alleged payment of $3,487, to 400 political workers,In the democratic primary last year. The verdict Was roundly cheered by spectator's, who raised such a din of noise in the court room that the Jurge retired to his'cham- bers for a few minutes before completing his work. A few minutes after Mayor Quln and Bishop and Campbell had been cleared, District Attorney John Shook announced he would ask today for dismissal of old indictments chaglng public fund irregularities pending against George W. Huntress, Jr., former Bexar county clerk; W. R. Beaumier, former chief clerk under Huntress; Dillard Coy .deputy county clehk, and Joe S. Ccbieskl, former county treasurer. 8:30 p. 8 Navarro Chapter UDC In Regular Monthly Session Wednesday Navarro Chapter UDO met In regular monthly session in the Townsend room at Klnaloe House m.
