WASHINGTON, March Secretary Ickes endorsed today a proposal to set up a permanent department of public works, but said some government, agencies now administering heavy construction rograms might fight the plan. Ickes testified beforo the senate unemployment committee on a bill by Chairman Byrnes (D-SC) to overhaul the existing relief setup. The measure would liberalize social security benefit and create the new works department. Ickes told the committee "the question of unemployment Isn't a temporary thing. I'm afraid we are going to have it more or less as a permanent problem.." The witness snld he was "heartily In accord" with the proposed creation of a new department, but By MORGAN M. BEATTY AT Feature Service Writer WASHINGTON.—Mussolini's on tho spot In Spain! That's the international piano's tune now that red-sashed General Franco has won his victory. The quick decision of those powerful democracies — France and Great Britain—to recognize the new dictator and to go along with him is the nickel that started the piano going. At any rate, that's the way the experts here interpret the situation. « * * Why It's 'Watch Mussolini' Hero, In chronological order, are their main reasons: 1. From the very outbreak of civil war, Spain presented an opportunity for the conflicting ideologies struggling for supremacy in tho world today—fascism, democracy, communism, nazlism, or what-have-you. A victory for any ono of these systems of government in Spain would be a feather in that system's cap, so to speak. Therefore, "volunteers" poured In—from communist Russia, fascist Italy, nazl Germany even democratic France, Britain and the United States. Intervention In Spain blossomed into a sort of business for ideologists and military strategists. From there on Spnln became the world's stamping ground. 2. When Mussolini began to ship thousands of Italian troops to Spain, he explained to alarmed Britain and Franco that he was taking this drastic stop to protect Spain from bolshovlsm, or communism, or—to him—kindred evils. He gently reminded tho democracies nnd Russia that they, too, were permitting volunteers to help republican Spain (or democratic, if you prefer). He reasoned that a democratic or corn- added: possibly be arranged. Chamberlain succeeded last year, and those assurances reached the world in tho form of an Anglo- Italian Mediterranean accord. That treaty assured everybody who might be Interested that Italy was hy no moans Intent upon upsetting tho Mediterranean status quo (apple cart, to you and me), where Britain and Italy shared the driver's seat. Therefore, Mussolini was quite willing to withdraw from Spain. But tho canny Italian was not putting his "M" on paper, willy nllly. He would withdraw, of course, only after the war was over and Franco had won. * * * : A' Strategic Move 5. Just to bo sure that Mussolini would have no further excuse to remain In Spain, Franco and Great Britain . recognized Franco as soon as It was certain he'd won. Tardy recognition of tho Franco regime would have been the one excuse for Mussolini's troops to stick around in Spain to guarantee that Franco's victory stuck. But now Spain hhas been recognized. Its Mussolini's move. 6. That's what put Mussolini on the spot. If he expects trouble in Europe soon—some military movement by Hitler, say, or a flare-back from hla quarrel with France over African colonies—ho would naturally find some plausible excuse to keep Italian troops In Spain. Italian troops In Spain are a direct, threat to France, forcing her to plan defenses of both her Italian and Spanish borders. Spanish airplanes and submarines In the Balearlcs—where they now are—could menace French communication with her African possessions. So Italian military positions in Spain give Mussolini something of AMERICAN CIVIL LIBERTIES UNION HAS RATED CITIES DENIAL OF RIGHT OF PUBLIC ASSEMBLY CLAIMED MOST ABUSED IN NATION NEW YORK, March 8.— (JPf— A national survey classifying 19j American cities, of a total of 332 Investigated, as "good" to very good" In ovscrvance of slvll rights and the remainder from "fair to "verv bad," was made public today by 'the American Civil Liberties Union. _. Cleveland, New York and St. Louis were put at the top of the list as "very good," but not among these, said the Union, was there "more than a 60 percent observance of the civil rights presumably guaranteed citizens." The "worst" cities covered In the study, which was made by Rebecca O. Rcls under the direction of a committee headed by Richard S. Chllds, president of the City Club of New York, were desgnaled as Little Rock, Ark., New Orleans, and Tampa, Fla. Inquhles, said the ACLU, were sent to mayors, chtcts of police, school superntendents and to the Union's own correspondents In 958 communities of a population of 10,000 and above. Among the general conclusions announced were that free speech "suffers less assault" than any other civil right, while the right of public assmbly "Is the most unversally disregarded." "In the great majority of the cities polled," said the Union, "conditions are most satisfactory as to free speech, rights of unemployed, labor unions, negroes, free press, schools and police, and least satsfnctory as to radio, movies and theater, parades, picket- Ten Can Boy.

Negro Sworn In On Bexar County Grand Jury Monday SAN ANTONIO, March 6.— (/P) —A negro was sworn In on the Bexar county grand jury today for the first time In ten years. He Is S. J. Button, principal of the Phyllis Wheatley high school. Complying with the suggestion made by Judge W. W. McCrory of criminal district court last week, the grand jury commission selected one negro to represent his race on the grand jury. In proposing this action, Judge McCrory cited recent high court rulings in which convictions of negroes were reversed because negroes were barred from serv- rangeme a menace to fascism, a cannon aimed In Italy's direction. 3. Repeatedly, Mussolini has assured England and France that he has no designs on the Independence of Spain, or the integrity—as one diplomatic note put it—of Spain's islands or colonies.
