As U. S. Ambassador Hugh Wilson Arrived home from Germany and German Ambassador Hans Diekhoft sailed home to the Reich, Secretary Hull published the texts of an exchange of notes with Germany, begun in October and. finished "last week, by which he sought unsuccessfully to get Germany to make good on some $20,000,000 of Austrian bonds held by the U S. and Its nationals. Germany had replied that it felt no legal responsibility for these bonds since they were Issued to "support the Incompetent Austrian state artificially created by the Paris treaties", and that German trade with the U. S. was In too passive a Lakota Pastor Is Shaken In Upset SUSIE—by Edith Swanson Exclusively each week In The Algona Upper Des Molnes Have Your Holiday Suit Tailor Made Don't Sacrifice Fabric or Style to Get a Proper Fit Have you ever desired a particular suit and then discovered your size isn't In stock?

Referring to the equally blank U S.-Japanese relations, Mr. Hull also declared that a reply received from Japan, In response to his sharp note of October 6 warning that U. S. trade and other rights In China must be preserved, was "not responsive*" Japan hal talked vastly and vaguely about a "new situation" in China. As In the case Of Germany, there was absolutely nothing the State Department could do except perhaps send another, sharper note, and get back another > vaguer reply. Thus, for the first time since Commoaore Perry opened Japan to U. S. trade in 1854, the U. S. was totally impotent In Japan and Chnla. Unless Congress sent the Navy to enforce U. S. trade rights—a step which U. S. business Interest in China and the nation at large "would deploce— there was nothing further Secretary Hull cbuld do or say.

S. a while to "advise" the Department on Central European donigs. To join their conversations at Warm Springs, President Roosevelt summoned William ("Bill") Phillips, his Ambassador to thejother Jew-purging dictatorship, Italy, who returned to the U. S. early last month on leave. After two huddles with Mr. Roosevelt, the two diplomats headed back for Washington. The press was told nothing of what they had told the president or he them. Ambassador Phillips said he would start back to Rome this week, which suggested that the president plan- nod no crack-down on Dictator Mussolini. Ambassador Wilson said only that his stay In the U. S. should not be called "indefinite." The world press then began to watch the comings and goings of Mrs. Wilson in Berlin. Should she sail for the U. S., it might be momentous. NEW ANGLES ON WPA WASHINGTON: Ever since election the prospect of WPA Administrator Harry Hopkins' being elevated officially to Cabinet rank (he already attends Cabinet meetings has been vigorously chattered. At a meeting of 21 Democratic leader with National Chairman Jim Far ley last week In Manhattan, th Hopkins boom was discussed and al 22 thumbs were reported turne( down on it Actually, the Hopkfns chances were never good. Meantime, the destiny of WPA. even before it Is investigated by Congress, was becoming apparent. In response to President Roosevelt's warning that Us 1038 appropriation must be made to last through February, WPA rolls, which had risen steadily since October 8 to a peak of 3,262,669 on November S, began to be cut last fortnight, chiefly by not replacing clients who left to enter private employment. By last week's end they were down considerably from the peak. And besides cogitating a more popular berth for his favorite henchman, Franklin Roosevelt was studying projects for WPA more popular than road- patching and leaf-raking. Plan is to divert WPA men and millions Into the big new act of the Fourth New Deal (rearmanment); to set WPA workers to building airports, barracks, arsenals; training boys under the National \outh Administration to become airplane mechanics. Also well In advance of congressional actipn, Harry Hopkins last fortnight declared: "The American people fesent, will resent and should resent the injection of petty politics into unemployment relief work. They don't like the idea that anybody gets a jobs because he has political Influence; they don't like th? Idea that anybody gets his pay raised because of political influence; they don't like the Idea that he gets fired because of that. They are quite right. My feeling about It is this: that I would put this organization or any organization like it, lock, stock and barrel, under Civil Service—the whole works under Civil Service."
