At that time this department said Roosevelt had had his own way for six years and would continue to do as he pleased regardless of the sentiment of the public. That statement has proven true.

Ardery WASHINGTON — (AP>—An m- Anybody can be a philanthro- pixt in spending; other people's money. All the great gift* Roosevelt has given to the working people have beerf taken from business men and financiers and pamed on. These gifts were not made by Roosevelt JMmself and debt after debt has been piled Up until the country faces bankruptcy, and there Is no end In tight. Not a single movement has been made to pay any of the $60,000,000,000 that has been granted to the Roosevelt war ; program. There i* no Intention it the present time of paying tack any ot this money, of pey- i teg up any of the great Indebtod- of this country. Step by step the country hat led on the way. The orlg- tnal scare started some yean ago when It was reported by President Roosevelt that a German U-boat was located in the Caribbean sea. It was never seen by any other person, it was never beard of by any* others, but it threw a great scare into the American people. Step by stop these scares have been handed out where they would make the biggest •care. As a matter of Jact, It occurs to this column that i President Rooeevelt and his New automata were In favor of formal administration poll showed today that at least 55 senators—six more than a majority—would vote to amend the pending armed ship bill so as to permit American merchant vessels to sail anywhere on the seven seas. The poll, conducted by senators Interested in broadening the house- approred legislation lifting the ban against the arming of merchant ships, indicated that a maximum of 60 members would support the suggested amendment to knock out the neutrality act provisions forbidding merchant ships to enter belligerent ports or designated combat rones. All indications pointed to an administration effort to expand the pending bill after the senate foreign relations committee concludes hearings this afternoon. On* informed senator said the committee vote for granting American merchantmen complete freedom of the sew would be at least 12 to 11 and might be 13 to 10, depending on the ballot of Senator George (D-Oa). rank- kit member of the croup.

A muddy torrent poured through a 100-foot k«h in the drainage canal dike which normally routes a trickling creek through the city. Steady ratn since early In thfe week brought the flood. Water ran from one to three feet deep through the entire business district and 75 per cent of the residence section. More ominous, however, was the threat from under the ground where the water table, normally 15 to 20 feet down, had risen to near the surface following incessant rams and overflows. Engineers feared a damage toll approaching that In 1039 when a similar combination left the oil and sail mining center a $3,000,010 repair bill.

Tank Output For Own Forces Is to Be Doubled Defense Program Is Undergoing Revision, Chief.!xecutive Says WASHINGTON — <AJ»» — Withholding all figures. President Roosevelt announced today that the American program for producing tank* for United States armed forces would be approximately doubled at once. The chief executive told a press conference that the projected expansion was part of an over-all revision of the defense picture. But the rest of it, he said, will not be ready until later in the fall or perhaps when ujtigiess meets for a new session in January. Mr. Rooaeitflt would not say what the present tank prognm called for nor what the increase would provide. That, he asserted, was Information which the axis would like to have. It does call for many thousand more tanks, he asserted, along with certain items of ordnance relating to them. The principal reason for the decision to make a UeuieJtoqs increase in tank output, the President disclosed, grew from the experience in the use of tanks In North Africa last year. Some new plants probably win have to be built to turn out the enlarged volume of tanks, Mr. Roosevelt declared, while factories no making them will have to step up their operations. Reminded that William 8. Knudsen. director of the office of production management* had lUfiiUaitid a goal of 2,000 medium tanks monthly. Mr. Roosevelt aaid the new program went beyond it.
