TEN THE DAILY MAIL, HAGERSTOWN, MD., WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 9, 1939. NAZIS SPEED REGISTRATION OFOVILIANS Survey Being Made To Meet Any Emergency That May Menace Nation BERLIN, Aug. 9, (#>).—Germany today directed a comprehensive sur- Tey of her civilian power—men, women and children—to meet any"emergency which may menace the nation in the critical days ahead. While the program to establish a peak of preparedness by mid-August •was stepped up, a gigantic card index of special talents of Germans was being prepared for the new civilian registration ordered last night for next week. Only soldiers, reservists and persons less than five years old and more than 70 were excluded in the orders for a vast surve yof the abilities and capacities of Germans. "We are squeezing the last drop tf efficiency out of a nation which already has attained an impressive degree of all round competence," one official commented. The "Registration of Talents" Tvas one of a series of preparatory measures being taken. It was reliably reported that a number of Berlin schools would be used to quarter troops being called up at the end of this week for maneuvers. Classes were being doubled up to prevent interruption of the educational program. There was no official explanation of the purpose of including children as young as five years in the civilian registration. One explanation was that the number of temperaments of children might be a controlling factor in deciding what and how much special service a mother might perform. Searching Questions Soldiers and reservists -were excluded from the survey because the army already knows where and how they are to be used. But civilians were puzzling today over cards— green ones for females and orange for males—on which were columns of searching questions. They must be filled out and turned in to police—by Aryans—between Aug. 13 and 19. Jews will have a registration of their own between Aug. 28 and Sept. 2. Fine Is Provided The announcement observed that "should Germany be attacked then women and men unable to bear arms will have to support the fighting army by substituting at home in even a greater degree than during the World war." A fine up to 150 marks (about $60) or six weeks imprisonment is provided for failure to fill out the registration card or for deliberately answering any question falsely. Despite Germany's preparations to put the nation on a preparedness footing, there were declarations that no war was in the offing, so far as Germany's intentions are concerned, and that Adolf Hitler would find a peaceful solution to "pending questions." Important Steps Aside from the registration order, there were these important steps: 1. Army and Hitler youth leaders agreed on a plan whereby future Hitler youth leaders will receive pre-military training under experienced army officers. 2. Filing stations were cautioned to limit the sale of gasoline. 3. In many centers, especially in southern Germany, the requisitioning of trucks for military maneuvers was ordered. 4. Hitler ordered that beginning Thursday a film depicting Germany's Siegfried Line—the fortress (Continued on Page 2) Grange Plans For Soil Work Well Attended Meeting Held At Hancock High School. Members of th£ Hancock Grange, who met Monday night to discus? the organization of a Soil Conservation District in Washington County, are planning in the near future to visit some of the farms in the southern and eastern parts of the county where soil erosion is being combatted. Illustrated examples of erosion were shown by means of lantern slides at the meeting held at the Haiicock High school building, and the program proposed in this county was discussed by Robert T. Haas and J. C. Tignor of the Soil Conservation Service. Milt D. Moore., county agent, urged that the farmers organize and form their own soil conservation group, and through Federal, state and county assistance stop soil erosion. Those present at the meeting included: B. H. Exline, Andrew Bishop.

HUGE BOMBER MISSING AND 4 FLIERS DIE (Continued from Pago I) land" raider which crossed the coast in eleven swift attacks last night was quickly spott-ed. Throughout the night giant searchlights combed the skies and anti-aircraft guns were sighted on "raiders." Bombers were equipped with outside- flashlights to glow each time a theoretical bomb was dropped, and whether it hit the objective was recorded on the ground by photography. Anti-aircraft gunners' "hit" also were checked photographically. Besides guns, lights, a balloon barrage and the usual listening apparatus, the defenders were reported to be using effective new secret air defense equipment. Five hundred planes from the mythical "eastland," which is pointedly in the direction of Germany, are act : ing at attackers against SOO "west- land"' defenders. Blackout Tonight. The high point of the maneuvers in the air comes tonight with a gigantic blackout covering- half of England, including London. Estimates were that it would involve some 200,000 air raid precautions personnel. Householders, restaurants, railway stations, factories and newspaper offices are to curtain their windows during the blackout, which starts at 12:30 a. m. Traffic lights will be hooded and street lights will be turned off. Trains, buses and automobiles will operate with lights shielded from the skies. Officials warned that those who fail to cooperate may receive a visit from the police or air raid wardens. "While the air force staged its show King George went to Weymouth for a review of the reserve fleet, mobilized for the August-September preparedness period. After the review the reserves will engage in extensive maneuvers with the regular home fleet. Land forces already are engaged in extensive training maneuvers which will come to a head in a huge "battle" beginning Sept. 14.

Eight members of his congregation formed a volunteer guard around his home today. A spokesman, asserted: "We're here to protect him.'" Miss 'Dworecki, left her home Monday night to "go to a drug store." Police reported the girl had been molested, beaten or threatened by strange men on at least two other occasions. Chief County Detective Lawrence P. Doran said that after the April abduction and beating Miss Dworecki was shown several rogues' gallery photographs but had not identified any as her assailants. Twice Warned He quoted her father as saying that during her recovery he received two telephone calls from a man who warned: "You'd better tell Wanda to keep her mouth shut.—or somebody is going to get bumped off." With the corsage as their leading clue—the girl didn't have it when .she left home—detectives sought a stranglcr "with a grip strong enough to break a bone." Dr. 0. W. Saunders. county physician, reported: "The bone which connects the breast-bone and the collar-bone was fractured. The man responsible for her death probably was big and strong. There were no linger marks on her throat, which indicate she probably was strangled from behind, possibly with a headlock." "There was a wound on the head near the temple which was caused by a blunt weapon." Mrs. Mary Rudolf, a neighbor of the Dworecki family, told police she saw Wanda Monday night "leaning against the pillar of a bank building, as though .she were waiting for someone." Other neighbors said that as far as they knew the girl had no boy friends who visited her homo. YELLOW GOLD Wedding rings with three fine diamonds $7.50. Saum's, 21 X. Jonathan St. Adv.

WASHINGTON, Aug. 9 (£>).— The United States Army, from chief of staff to its lady stenographers, has retreated from its ancient quarters, but General John J. Pershing, still holds the fort. Not a shot was fired, but ia one of the capital's major office shifts, workmen today got the last remnant of the army out of the State department building. All, that is, except the office and furniture of General Pershing. "No," said an official, "the General's offices will stay where they are. There is nothing that will exactly meet his needs where we're going/' ' Where the army went was the Munitions building—a long, squat, rambling structure down near the Washington Monument. It was hastily put up during the World war, and now houses most of the navy's offices. The army high command will move again when a new War department building is erected. General Pershing's offices are not so austere as you would imagine the commander of the A.E.F. would have. On the door is a sign which reads: "General of the Armies." The only others who could have stuck that title above their doors were V'ashington, Grant, Sherman and Sheridan. Inside is a beautiful old wood desk/a high ceiling, polished floors, an ornate mirror and walls that fairly drip with Victorian ornamentation. The office is always ready for the general, even though he hasn't been in Washington for some time. He could step in tomorrow and his mail would be there opened and ready for reading. The office once was used by President Roosevelt—a short time when he was assistant secretary of the navy—and by Herbert Hoover, when, the White House offices were damaged by fire. Japan's Sages Facing Toughest Decision Since Perry's Arrival (Continued from Page 1) England's hand. It might also be useful in event of trouble between Japan and Russia. But Germany long lias had an eager eye on the trade with China's 450.000,000 people. The fatherland was doing right well for itself before it lost the World War, and isn't doing so badly right now. The Nazis have signified their intention of having their share of oriental riches. So Japan's statesmen have to figure out what it will profit their country to use a military alliance wlvh Germany to oust England, if Germany is to replace the British. There are some of the dominant military party of Japan who want to conclude an alliance with Germany, feeling that this will give Nippon the control of the Far East which she desires. Thus far, however, many Japanese have been against any military alliance with a western power. They have wanted to make their Monroe Doctrine cut both ways— Japan to rule the Far East but not get involved in the quarrels of the west Many observers believe that Japan's decision will be against nn alliance with the axis if it can be avoided. Certainly she is proceeding with the utmost caution. Much may depend on Russo-Japanese relations, which recently have been pretty ragged, although they have smoothed out some at the moment. Danger of Avar with Russia might impel Japan to ally herself to Germany. Also Japan naturally doesn't like the idea of the projected Anglo- French-Russian defensive alliance, and is examining that prospect carefully. Further, many Japanese have been making a vigorous flourish of the claim that the United States is forcing her into a bond with Germany by cancellation of the American-Japanese treaty of lyil. However, a lot of observers feel that those who make this claim are considering its propaganda effect, having a weather-eye on the possibility of an American trade embargo, which would be well-nigh disastrous for Japan. The only alliance Japan ever has had with a western power was the one which was made with England in 1902 and which laste'cl until just after the World war. It is also interesting to note that it was Japan who, as one of the allies, booted Germany oxu of China during the war. The Nipponese drove the Germans out of Tsingtao and Kaio- chow and took over the concessions. Japan also got the mandate over German islands in the Pacific. To sum the position up, most observers feel that Japan regards the suggested alliance with much distaste and will try to avoid it. The experts also believe that the Japanese haven't the slightest, intention of precipitating war with Britain if it can be avoided. ROAD CONTROL IS DISCUSSED (Continued from Page 1) Roads Commission took over the roads years back all the county- owned machinery at the time was sold to the state. If the county resumes control, machinery must again be purchased. Members of the local Board of Commissioners are said to be satisfied that local control of the roads will prove far more satisfactory and that more can be accomplished. For months members have been sounding sentiment among business men, farmers, etc. the concensus of opinion is said to be decidedly "in favor of county control. Several weeks ago the Montgomery county Commissioners voted in favor of assuming control. Frederick likewise intends to take back its roads. On the other hand Prince Georges Commisisoners yesterday declined 10 take advantage of the oiler, voting against the proposed change largely on the grounds of the cost of machinery and because of the large deficit, charged against ihe county by the State Roads Commission.

The wall of the power house is perpendicular for 20 feet. From the base of the chimney to the first rung of the latter is a jump of 15 feet. How he managed to climb to the roof and then reach the foot of the ladder mystified officials. Hundrerls of spectators gathered outside the walls and heard the convict's shouts to guards below and the reply of prison officials, hoarse from long and futile argument. GOING UP CHI CO.

The Chinese was one of a crowd engaged in an anti-British demonstration before the British consulate. Both British and Japanese versions of the incident said that after the demonstration started a party of sailors from the British de- sctoyer Tenedos took up positions before the consulate. British accounts said that one of the demonstrators was injured in. fighting among members of the crowd after the sailors withdrew inside. But Japanese asserted he was hurt in a clash with the sailors. Broaden Campaign PETPING, Aug. 9 (^—Broadened activity against Americans in Japanese-controlled areas of China was reported today in fresh dispatches on anti-foreign manifestations. Chinese dispatches said both Americans and Britons were among foreign missionaries forced to leave Sinyang and Kikungshan, Honan province. Two Canadian missionaries and four Chinese associates were reported arrested last Sunday- at Snchow, Kiangsu province, accused of organizing an anti-Japanese "National Salvation Society" in mission compounds and of furnishing military information to Central Chinese government forces. Anti - American demonstrations were reported at Hwohsien in Shansi province and Shuhchiachwang in Hop eh. JAPAN TORN BY STRIFE (Continued from Page 1) that Lieut-Gen. Seishiro Itagaki.

The cabinet as a whole "\\'as described as strongly against the alliance. The imperial household — the high officials closest to the emperor—was said to be strongly opposed to any serious European commitments. Even the army high command was reported to want to avoid the outright alliance for which the "young officers" are agitating and to desire nothing more than ,1 limited mutual agreement against Soviet Russia only. fODAY'S STOCK QUOTATIONS Quotations by Mackubin, Lftgg & Co., Wareham Building, Hagerstown, Md.

Criticism Adams, Economy Advocate, Denies There Was Coalition After President Takes Parting Shot At Those Who Blocked Neutrality, Housing Programs. WASHINGTON, Aug. 9, (/P).~ Congressional foes of the administration neutrality and lending programs took sharp issue today with President Roosevelt's assertion that a Coalition of Republicans and Democrats had gambled with the nation's welfare by refusing to pass those bills. "The President really ought to look over the roll calls," said Senator Adams (D.-Colo.), an economy advocate. "There was no coalition. Individual members merely voted their own convictions." Adams declared that the groups which opposed Senate consideration of the Neutrality bill and which shelved the lending- bill in the House were quite different. Somewhat similar sentiments were expressed by Senator King (D.TTJtah) who opposed the lending bill. He said: "I don't see how anyone can contend consistently that when we appropriated nearly $13,000,000,000 for next year, Congress was not doing everything within its power, provided spending is the answer." Tackles Bills HYDE PARK, N. Y., Aug. 9, (/P). —Having sent a parting shot at those legislators who blocked his neutrality, lending- and housing programs. President Roosevelt tackled today a file of bills which Congress did approve in its closing days. He arranged to spend most of the day in the library of his Hudson Valley home deciding whether to sign or veto the measures. Mr. Roosevelt said at a press conference yesterday be still had to act on 145 bills which he had not yet examined and about 10 more which ha had sent back, for restudy. to interested government departments. At his first press conference since the congressional session ended, the President said a solid Republican minority and 20 to 25 per cent of the Democrats in Congress had: (1) Made a large wager with the nation, on neutrality, that there would be no war until sufficiently long after they returned to Washington in January for them to take care of things; and (2) Wagered that private industry and business would take up the slack occasioned by dropping a million WPA workers this year and by closing out next spring a PWA program which had been providing 2,000,000 jobs. It was a combination of Republicans and rebellious Democrats which forced administration leaders to postpone until the next session efforts to obtain Senate action on neutrality and, in the House, prevented consideration of the lending and housing measures. If this coalition loses its neutrality wager, Mr. Roosevelt declared, it may effect a billion and a hall! human beings. That, he added, is pretty important. Says Hands Tied If those legislators were wrong, lu> continued, they have tied his bunds and he has practically no power to make an American effort to prevent any war outbreak. He said that was a. pretty serious responsibility. As for the lending and the Housing programs, he said, WPA rolls would be cut from .'5,000,000 to 2,000,000 by next spring and the PWA program, giving employment to another 2,000,000 individuals, will have'.ended. With dependents, he said, iflte individuals involved total 20.000,000. If business does not take up the slack, he said, the country must place the responsibility for their condition on the congressional coalition. The President remarked repeatedly thai he hoped the two bets were good ones. And he emphasized time after time that if the bets were lost, tlic responsibility rested 100 per cent on a. solid Republican, minority plus about 22 per cent of House and 25 per cent of Senate Democrats. The Chief Executive indicated that he was not planning to carry the neutrality and lending issues to the nation. He said he ha.d three speeches scheduled for a trip to the West Coast starting about Oct. L One will be at the dedication of (he Croat Smoky Mountains National Park, another at the San Francisco Exposition and the third at the dedication of the Olympic National Park in Washington. He challenged reporters, even through surmise or guessing, to find any groat, political occasion in those three events. Mrs. Roosevelt was at her husband's elbow, leaning back against a book case, and occasionally offering a suggestion. Apparently the conference was in part a review of a. family chat, over the breakfast table this morning. Give them the illustration of a precipice, Mrs. Roosevelt proposed. Pointing a thumb over his shoulder in her direction, the Chief Executive said he was saying to her at breakfast that we have been carrying on at a fairly high .level with 3,000,000 on relief rolls, and, count-, ing persons who get jobs from supplying materials, another 2,000,000 on PWA. Many Given Work With their dependents, he said, 20,000,000 people have been given work, not always steady, but some work. —And some buying power, Mrs. Roosevelt interjected. —And a great deal of buying power, her husband went on, which affects the little grocer and every store on Main street of Poughkeepsie (Dutchess ccumty seat), and the two or three small stores In Hyde Park village. It affects all the gasoline stations, he added. Next spring, he said,, WPA rollt will have been reduced from 3,000,000, to 2,000,000 and the 2.000,000 on PWA will have finished their work. The theory luis been, on the part of the solid Republican minority, plus 20 to 25 per cent of the Democrats, the President said, that business would take up the slack as jobs were lost. But there is a serious condition, he said, because it is not a gradual decline over a period of years, "but, rather, a precipice. "Precipice" Method The theory of the .lending Mil, lie said, was to provide a, graduated descent from the level of high employment, but the coalition voted in favor of the precipice 7nethod.
