"What I intended to convey was that no, laws would be passed that would result in a reduction of present revenue." He added that he believed the onlv way deterrents could be removed would be-by increasing general corporation taxes to compensate for lost revenue, and that ho feared that action would bring protests from the 150,000 small corporations. In the wake of President Roosevelt's statement the administration was considering an overhaul of corporation taxos, powerful senate sentiment developed today for prompt action as an aid to business. The Chief Executive, discussing tax questions at his press conference late yesterday, said consolidation of five existing business levies was being studied.

The decree made clear to the Slavic peoples that there will bo two classes within the protector- tho Gcr- all the rights and privileges of citizens of Germany, and a class of non- German who will be subjects of the protectorate. They learned, further, that their army, foreign policy, railways and other communications, post office, telegraph and telephone services will be run by their powerful protector and that thoy will have nothing to say In these matters.

Resolutions of Thanks. In behalf of the entire post, Fred Blucher read a resolution thanking the congregation Agudas Achim for their cooperation In securing the headquarters for the post, The building was formerly occupied by the congregation. The resolution was accepted by Julius Jacobs for Louis Wolens. The resolution was as follows: Whereas, It is well known^to the membership of Johnson-Wiggins Post No. 22, The American Legion, of Corsicana, Texas, that the officers of Congregation Agudas Achim, of Corsicana, have, in the past several years, refused to sell its lot and the brick synagogue thereon on North 12th street in Corsicana to various prospective purchasers for a purchase price largely in excess of that which this Post has contracted to pay for the property; and Whereas, It is further known to 'the officers and membership of Johnson-Wiggins Post No. 22, The American Legion, that the officers of Congregation Agudas Achim have been seriously concerned in seeing that this property and former place of worship of this congregation would be used and utilized in the future not as business property, but as the property of an' organization whose purpose was patriotic, civic, fraternal or religious in nature; and Whereas. The officers of and in behalf of Congregation Agudas Achim have in their contract of sale of said property with Johnson-Wiggins Post No. 22, The American Legion, generously and patriotically agreed to give One- Thousand Dollars of the agreed Three Thousand Dollars purchase price, so as to aid the American Legion Post in Corsicana to become the owner and user of the synagogue property: Therefore, Be It Resolved: That Johnson-Wiggins Post No. 22, The American Legion, Department of Texas, in Corsicana, In this meeting on this, the 15th day of March, 1939, which celebrates the Twentieth Anniversary of the American Legion, by this resolution records its appreciation of the manifest expression of patriotism, clvlc-mlndedness and generosity on the part of President Louis Woolens, all the other officers, and the individual members of Congregation Agudas Achim in the sale to and donation towards the purchase of the former synagogue of this Congregation to and for The American Lelon Post In Corsicana as its permanent headquarters home. and decree continued. It exercises sovereign appertaining to a protectorato in harmony with tho political, military and economic Interests of the relch." number of constitutional auditions concerning Bohemia and Moravia." Bones Press Chief Arrested. One of the first persons to be taken into custody by the Gestapo, Hitler's secret police, was Jan Hajck, who was personal press chief for Dr. Eduard Bencs, pro-Munich president of Czechoslovakia. Hajck was arrested yesterday morning and released last night. It was understood the Gestapo sought certain information, the nature of which was not disclosed. Hitler reached the capital un- i obtrusively last night during a his army. The army, Instead of the flowers and kisses they received in Stidotcnland, got boos and hisses from Czechs on the streets but tnere was no great disorder. Tho German chancellor settled shattered Czechoslovakia's fate In conference with its white-haired president, Emil Hacha, early yesterday morning. Hitler In tho late afternoon named Konrad Hcnleln, the Sude- ten nazi loader, to bo civil administrator for Bohemia. General Johannes Blaskowltz, commander of group three of the German army, was named military ruler. Moravia's executive power was placed In the hands of Genera! Wilhelm List, commander of tho fifth army group stationed in Vienna, and Moravian civil administration was vested in Joseph Buerckel, Hitler's commissioner in Austria. Croatians Demanding Their Independence ROME, March 16.-W)—Croatian demands for independence from Yugoslavia were reported today in the fascist press on the heels of Relschsfuehrer Hitler's entry Into Prague. "Croats also domand independence," said 11 Popolo Di Roma in headlining a dispatch from Belgrade. Tho dispatch said Czechoslovak events had caused a "profound Impression" among Croats | who now arn asking a Hoparate INCREASE OF ONE PER CENT IS VOTED ON MUTUAL GAS PROPOSED AMENDMENT TO CONSTITUTION FOR PENSION PAYMENTS CONSIDERED added that any revision must | tj, nt "t ne hand of the autonomous Ths German fuehrer decreed Crotlan army to assure Croatian maintain federal revenues at their present level. Amid consideration of the tax problem, the administration was confronted with another request for encouragement of business when 10 stock exchanges recommended that tho securities commission order sweeping modifications of its regulations. Tho New York stock exchange and 15 others called for clearer definition of rules on manipulation and simplification of registration statements. Present rules, they contended, deter operators from acts which "are wholly in the public Interest." After Mr. Roosevelt outlined his tax views, some members of congress said his remarks appeared to conflict with statements by Speaker Bankhead and Senate Leader Barkley. Those two men .have indicated a belief little would be gained from revising the corporation levies because tho aggregate tax load could not be reduced. Just a few hours before tho President's press conference, in fact, Bankhead had said he expected no general revision this year. Be If Further Resolved, That the attitude of the officers and the membership of Congregation Agudas Achim toward the future ownership and use of their former house of worship and their desire to have The American Legion acquire same for its patriotic use and purposes reflects spiritual, sentimental and patriotic qualities of this Congregation that merit praise. We recognize that Just such qualities put into practice and effect have helped make the United States of America a great democracy where citizens of diverse racial and religious background and origin live in brotherhood, peace, happiness and love of country. Such qualities are enduring American qualities. Be It Resolved that a copy ot this resolution be given to Louis Wolons, president of Congregation Agudas Achim, that a copy be placed in the permanent records of this Post, and a copy be given the press.

The Prime Minister angered many newspapers by his mild statement in the House of Commons yesterday—that Relchs- fuchrer Hitler's action was inconsistent with "the spirit of Munich." Generally the press called on the government to "keep your powder dry" and characterized Germany as an "undisguised" enemy of all Europe. It was believed General Jan Syrovy, former premier and more recently Czeoho-Slovak defenso minister, ' and Premier Rudolf Bcran might have been among the group of refugees from Prague which flew to London Tuesday night and went Into seclusion. The average Briton felt the full Impact of Hitler's triumph in those figures: Germany at the outbreak of the world war had an estimated population of 68,000,000 and an area of 208.780 iquare miles. Today Germany dominates a population of 90,000,000 and an area of 268,000 square miles. In the loss of friendly Czecho Slovakia, Britain and France saw disappearance of 40 army divisions and. their modern military equipment, passed Into German hands—tanks, heavy artillery, munitions, an air fleet and the factories that produced them. They saw Germany gain timber, iron, coal, graphite, lead, copper, silver and other mineral wealth along with thousands of industrial units. administration should enjoy all protection and honors accorded the head of a state. Supreme Hend, Ho said there would be a supreme heid of the autonomous protectorate and n rnlchs-pro- tector as guardian of Germany's Interests. He assumed charge of the protectorate's foreign affairs, "especially protection of its subjects in foreign countries," and accorded it. one representative to the German government with the title of minister. The protectorate was assured military protection, although allowed its own "formations" for "safeguarding domestic security and order." Germany took direction over communications—Including postal telegraph and telephone service—and transportation. The decree linked the protectorate "to the customs territory of the German relch" and put It under German "customs sovereignty." It made the German relchsmark and the former Czeoho-Slovak crown legal tender, at least temporarily, with their relative value to be determined .by Berlin. Germany, the decree said, may issue legal regulations in matters of common interest, may set up German authorities and take over parts of the protectorate's administration. ' \ It said Bohemian and Moravian laws would remain "insofar as they do not run counter to the spirit of the German rcich as protector of the territory." Long Period of Pence Promised. Hitler promised Bohemia and Moravia a long period of peace and cultural development" In a brief response when the Lord Mayor of Prague paid him a formal call at Hradcany Castle, asking the fuehrer to take tho city and its people under his protection. Hitler's troops had completed occupation of Bohemia and Moravia. "Foreign affairs and especially tho protection of. citizens abroad are to be taken over by the reich," the fuehrer's decree said. The proclamation continued, point by point, to outline the nature of Hitler's protection: "The reich will grant military protection .to the protectorate. "The customs administration will be taken over Dy the relch. "Laws now in force in Bohemia and Moravia will continue except, whore they run counter to German law." The fuehrer spent the night a* Hradcany Castle, formerly the Czecho-Slovak presidential palace, and this morning made a balcony appearance. The crowd before tho palace was mostly German and in response to the fuehrer's appearance it set up shouts of "Hell!" and a refrain of, "Fuehrer, We Thank You!" autonomy.. There has been a long struggle and negotiations have been proceding over autonomy for Croatia, in northwest Yugoslavia near the Italian frontier. (Yugoslavia is a convenient name for tho triuno kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes which was originated at the end of 1018 by union of parts of the former Austro - Hungarian empire with Serbia and, at a slightly later date, with Montenegro. (The Catholic Croats of Croatia- Slavonla and Dalmatla, number- Ing more than 3,000,000, form the second largest group in tho Yugo- slavl population of about 14,000,000. Serbs constitute more than one-third of tho total.) Previous to 1935 certain Yugoslavs frequently charged Italy attempting to wean Croatia Coalition Government Bought For France PARIS, March 16.—M>}—Agitation appeared to bo increasing in France today for a coalition government of all parties which would present a strong front toward Germany, conqueror of France's onetime ally, Czecho-Slovakla. -t Full realization that tho bloodless conquest made Adolf Hitler the dominant power of Central Eu- I rope seemed to strike like a sudden blow. French observers last week were talking of friendship with Germany and possibility of a general European peace agreement Today they were referring to Germany as an eternal enemy of peace. But oven in the demand among all political groups for a national I union government were evidences of a split. A powerful socialist-communist i bloc supported by several independent nationalists, demanded that the 1 Daladler-Bonnot government be overthrown at once as responsible for the diplomacy which lulled France Into a feeling: of false security. Rightist groups Insisted all parties must unite behind the present government, contending: Premier Daladter was the only man strong enough to keep France on even keel. There was some indication that the socialists and communists might be won over to Daladter, if he ousted Foreign Minister Bonnet and enlarged his cabinet to their advantage. _ .

Italy was accused of sheltering Croat terrorists who planned the assassination of King Alexander I at Marseille, Oct. 9, 1034. Italy has about 150,000 Croats within her own frontiers, mostly in Julian Vcnetla, obtained from the breakup of Austria-Hungary. Slovakia Also Taken Over BERLIN, March 18.—-(/P)— Reichsfuohrer Hitler today agreed to take Slovakia, "independent" central portion of broken Czechoslovakia, under his potectlon. Dr. Joseph Tlso, who declared independence of Slovakia Tuesday under Hitler's guidance and promise of support, appealed to the German fuehrer to take the little country of 14,500 square miles and 2,450 population under his rule. (It was Slovak separatism which furnished Hitler with an opportunity to stop in and break up tho Czecho-Slovak republic. (Dr. Emil Hacha, president of Czecho-Slovakla, last Friday ousted Dr. Joseph Tiso as premier of Slovakia and two of his cabinet ministers, (Tlso flew to Berlin last Monday and conferred with Hitler. Tho next day ho proclaimed tho independence! of s his country— which lasted only two days—and resumed the premiership.) VATICAN CITY. March 16.—(/P) —Popo Plus XVII received Karl Cardinal Kaspar, archbishop of Prague, In private audience this morning. He was believed to hove discussed German occupation of Bohemia with the pontiff, although the Czech Cardinal's call presumably was also to say farewell before returning to his see now that tho coronation ceremonies are over. Others received In audience by the pope included Monsignor Gabriel Brcynan, apostollo vicar of MacKenzie, Canada, and the coronation missions from Venezuela, Guatemala, Nicaragua, and Salvador. Lort Something? Try a Dally Sun Want Ad. ally bigger old ago pensions. The four per cent figure was somewhat of a compromise. The constitutional amendment committee had recommended a 3?i per cent levy on gas and Rep. Abe Maya of Atlanta wanted a considerably higher tnx. The amendment's provisions Increasing the oil and sulphur tnx 25 per cent and Imposing a 2V» per cent sales tax had not been reached when tho lower chamber adjourned. An Important change adopted was one providing that cigarette and liquor tax revenues now going to the old age pension fund would continue to be used for pensions. This would glvo tho pension fund $0,000,000 a year In addition to the $26,000,000 estimated to bo raised for that purpose by the constitutional amendment. Pension expenditures now aggregate only $10,000,000 annually. Tho proposed constitutional amendment would yield nt least $33,000,000 a year. l-otsch Loads Off Rep. Alfred Petsch of Fredericksburg, now serving his seventh term in the legislature, led off for tho amendment, assorting the present lawmaltlng body should settle the old ago pension question once and for all, "Wo should write Into the constitution," Petsch said, "clear statements of who shall receive pensions and how much they shall receive so tho political racketeer In the futuro cannot make promises impossible of fulfillment." To finance old ago pension spending about thrco times as great as at present, the proposal called for a 2Mi per cent tax on retail sales, gasoline, light and phone bills, and a boost of approximately 25 per cent in natural resources levies. Potsch said if the legislature submitted a pension financing amendment ".we will have met the issue laid down by the nearly 600,000 persons who. voted for W. Lee O'Daniol last summer and elected him governor In the first primary." Pensions For All Fast 65 O'Dantcl campaigned on a platform of $30 a month pensions to every person past 65 years of age. Texas now is pensioning only 115,- MEMBERS CIVITAN CLUB FINGERPRINTED BY LOCAL EXPERT Following the luncheon program of the Civltan club Thursday noon at the Navarro Hotel each club member was fingerprinted by Jaclc Mereenthaler, local fingerprint expert. The fingerprinting of all Individuals Is a phase of a safety program, now being encouraged by national and state safety officials. Ed Wendorf, program chairman for the meeting explained, One set of prints Is placed In the files of the State Bureau of Identification and Records of thn Department of Public safety In Austin and a second set Is recorded with Federal Bureau of Investigation of tho United States Department of Justice in Washington. Mr. Morgenthalor displayed an exhibit of fingerprinting apparatus and material, illustrating the use of fingerprinting identification. Eugene Robinson, Louis Sims, and S .W.

Allen has announced. 000 of tho estimated igr o 280,1 ,000 per- sons over 68 and the average grant from state and federal funds la but $14 per month. "Nearly every candidate last summer for any office," Pctsch recalled "declared for substantially bigger old age pensions. Generally thci more generous tho candidates' pension promises the more tavor- nble they were received by the electorate. "Our people in this nation aro gullible to receive governmental aid free of charge as those of any country in the world. As a consequence, political racketeers who promise everything have a material advantage over those who keep their campaign pledges within reasonable bounds." Referring to arguments that no tax plan should bo written into the constitution Pctsch said under ordinary circumstances that contention was correct but tho present pension crisis constituted "extraordinary circumstances," "The time has come," he said, "when the legislature and the people must clearly and permanently establish the state's policy on pensions." The proposal woo expected to be bombarded with amendments and it was doubtful a vote on Its adoption would bo reached before Friday at the earliest.
