BERLIN, Feb. 8.—Hermann Wilhelm Gocririg, Germany's record holder of public offices, is not the regular theatergoer these days hr is in ordinary times. The Anglo-French proposal for an air convention is consuming all his time, and as a result Herr Goering is confined for the most part to the air ministry. Goering is not only director-general of the Prussian theaters awd minister of avirition, but is commander of the police, premier of Prussia, president of the Reichstag, chief of the secret x service, .head forester, and chief game warden besides. Ordinarily the state theaters and operas require most of his attention. He has visions of making Prussia's play and opera houses the best in Europe, if not in the world. He will even throw overboard allowed Nazi principles to attain this end. "In my theaters .1 determine who is aryan and who is not," he said. unperturbed theories. by Nazi radical Forthwith he appointed Leo Blech, a Jew, as assistant Kapellmeister of the opera Unter Den Linden at Berlin. When Wilhelm Furtwaengler resigned in a huff as first kapellmeis- ter, Goering imported Clemens Krauss from- Vienna to take his place. That Krauss is a half-Jew did not bother Reichsfuehrer Hitler's right-hand man. There are limits to Goering's power, however, as the Furtwaengler intermezzo showed. Goering considers him the world's greatest baton wielder, not even excepting Arturo Toscanini. So, despite his row, he tried to retain the mercurial Furtwaengler. The latter drew up terms under which he would remain, listing them as separate points. Goering took the list to Adolf Hitler. He got no further than the first point. ' "Throw him out," roared the irascible' dictator. That ended the argument. Even the. mighty Goering is cowed when the Fuehrer flies into a rage. Still Goering hopes some day to get Furtwaengler back into the fold. Although Alexander Klpnis, a star of the Chicago and Ravenswood operas, is a Jew, he continues to be a member of the State opera's cast since Goering finds he cannot find a bass to equal his.- Easy Pleasant Way TO LOSE FJ Miss Nellie Bird Richey and Mrs. Richey of Schaeffer visited here over the week-end.

(/P)—An NBA report criticizing labor conditions In the automobile industry dropped today into the midst of the controversy over the auto code renewal. It said the speed-up had raised 'production demands beyond human capability to produce-day after day," that spies kept watch on workers "day and night" and that men are virtually forced to quit work at the age of 40. "Labor unrest exists to a higher degree than warranted by the depression," the report prepared by the Blue Eagla research and planning division said. "The unrest flows from insecurity, low annual earnings, inequitable hiring and rehir- ipr methods, espionage, speed up, and displacement of workers at an extremely early age." The investigation was made at the direction of President . Roosevelt. Tho president, in extending the automobile code until June 16, overruled NRA suggestions on working hours and a labor board. He approved one designed to spread work. Whether- the code should be reopened in the future for possible insertion of more NRA suggestions was a subject of discussion in official circles today. Ono source predicted it might be. There was no immediate word from the White Housa. The long awaited report, signed by Leon Henderson, recommended a maximum 40-hour week, with a 48- hour maximum permitted for not more than eight weeks in a year, and time-and-a-half pay for all. work over 40 hours. . jf The code, as amended and exWind- ed by the president, provides for time and a half for all work over 48 hours. It retains the clause saying the work week shall average no more than 40 hours through the year. streamers of pink- and white*' As Mis. McLaughlln .entered, giies.te greeted her by sltiglng Happy.
