Fob. 1—(AP)—' A symposium on the lease-lend bill] today produced an argument over! \Vendell Willkie, the 1940 Repub-' lican presidential nominee. i Alf M. Landon. the 1936 Repub-! lican nominee, said in an address at Topeka that in the lost election the; people did not have opportunity to j vote on the question of how close the United States should get to war. I "Both candidates for the presidency were on the same side," Landon said. "Now they are still together, hut on the other side, x x x Now both are in favor of an 'all- out aid' policy for England, even at the risk of war." Clark M. Eicholbergpr, national director of the Committee To Defend America by Aiding the Allies, speaking at Chicago, had this to say: Says People Want Action "The people want quick, practical action. They will have little patience with the politicians who do not like the lease-lend bill because President Roosevelt is for it. "Wendell Willkie looms as a greater Republican today than the members of his party who oppose the bill on party lines." Landon said he opposed the measure because "its delegation of powers to the President is so vague and limitless that no one can accurately define its extent." Eichelberger asserted charges that the measure was a "dictator- Ship bill" were "sheer bunk." Senators At Odds Two members of the senate were at odds over the question of what would be the position of the United States if the British fleet were beaten. Senator Connally. Texas Democrat, a supporter of the bill, said defeat of the British fleet "would open the Atlantic to the incursions of axis naval power upon Central and South America and the Western Hemisphere." He contended that the axis leaders planned, after an infiltration of influence in Central and South America, to make a "military and naval the United States." attack upon Senator Nye, North Dakota Republican, denied that the defense of this country rested upon the British navy and said that if Hitler should "choose, foolishly, to make war upon this hemisphere, we can give him, if I may use the expression, 'the works' as no power was ever given the works before."

The convention asked that congress take "such action as it deems necessary to achieve these ends, Including the granting of emergency executive powers with specific provision made for the return of any power granted as soon as the emergency is ended," and that congress retain its constitutional powers over the purse and declaration of war. Follows Baldwin Plan This provision is along the line of the address Friday by Raymond E.

The clerk, Fred Kaplan, was held in $25,000 bail for a further hearing February 10 on charges of extortion and violation of a section of the selective act which prohibits interference with duties of service boards. John F. Sears, chief of the Fed-, eral Bureau of Investigation ml Philadelphia, said Kaplan accepted $50 from Max D. Dantowitz, 23] years old, a registrant, "to see that"' he was not summoned for military training. Kaplan was arrested by FBI agents last night when he appeared at a jewelry store Dantowitz operates. The clerk pleaded innocent when he appeared today before a U. S. commissioner, but did not testify. Arguing for high bail, Edward J. Kallick, assistant U. S. attorney, declared: "I personally regard and my office regards this case as tantamount to treason against the United States. We have heard other complaints and we want to investigate all of them." Federal agents said the Jeweler co-operated with them in bringing about Kaplan's arrest. Phoenix, had applied for a certificate to take advantage of the internal revenue act of 1940 and amortize over a five-year period, for income tax purposes, plant construction or expansion costs connected with national defense.

Prices Good for Monday and Tuesday. Limit Rights Reserved. PadficMutud News By Frank J. Schwentker, C.L.U. I was astounded when I read last week that more people were killed In the United States during 1940 in automobile accidents than were killed in Britain as a result of German bombing. An editorial in "Canadian Insurance", states that automobile deaths In the United States in 1940 are estimated at 34,500, whereas the total number of killed and wounded, civilians and soldiers in Britain as a result of bombing In the present war n about 33,000. I was further impressed when I read in yesterday's Arizona Republic an Associated Press report from the National Safety Council giving 34,400 as the number of automobile deaths, and then the surprising information that deaths resulting from accidents in the home totaled 32,500—almost as many as from automobile accidents. What to do to decrease these terrific losses should have the best thought of all good citizens. I shall not attempt to point out a remedy; however, I would call attention to the fact that our Pacific Mutual accident policies provide much needed help when accidents do occur. Last year our Agency alone paid over ISO claims under our accident policies, and the gratitude expressed by these >olicyholders for benefits received makes me enthusiastic about accident insurance. Our accident policies are now ivailable not only for men, but Iso for women and for children s young as 14 years. The cost is urprisingly small and the benefits urprisingly large. For example, or only $20 per year a housewife may have a $5,000 accident policy overing loss of limbs and eye- |ght, as well as death" and in ad- Jition $500 reimbursement for medical expenses.
