FREDERICK, Md., Aug. 30 (/P).— Political contention was submerged—so far as neutral observers could determine—here yesterday as the state's Democratic leaders and a few favored followers gathered to observe the 63rd birthday anniversary of the late Gov. Albert C. Ritchie. Gov. Herbert R. O'Conor delivered the only formal address, a brief tribute to Ritchie, and the rest of the day was spent in small- group speculation of the reported forthcoming contest between Sen. George L. Radcliffe and Howard Bruce of Baltimore for the senatorial nomination. The program was sponsored by David C. Winebreuuer, 3rd, of Frederick. The scheduled features included an ox roast, vaudeville and a parade, but impromptu talks by Bruce, Radcliffe and others also highlighted the day. Senator Millard Tydiugs, whose support may be a powerful factor in the Bruce-Radcliffe contest, was out of the state but among those present were Mayor Howard W. Jackson of Baltimore, Congressman Lansdale G. Sasscer; Attorney General William C.'Walsh; Comptroller J. Millard Tawes; former Gov. Emerson C. Harrington; E. Broote Lee of Montgomery county; William Preston Lane of Washington; Secretary of State Francis Petrott; Joshua M. Warfield, chairman of the State Democratic Central committee; Congressman William Byron and Judge Stedmau Prescott." the new community hall in the town's park. Prior to his employment as town engineer in Williamsport, Mr. Hetzer was associated with his father in landscape gardening and the nursery business. Later he took a special course in general engineering. He is married and the father of one child.

The awards were believed to he for service in the Far East, another confirmation of the belief that fighting there has been extremely sharp and is still under wav. BALTIMORE, Maryland's new budget and procurement act re quires the State Racing Commis sion to come under the budget fo the first time in 19 years, Attoi ney-General William C. Walsh ruled today. Waish wrote Walter N. Kirk man, director of budget and pro curement, that the Racing Com mission should submit an estimat of how it planned to spend the $20,000 allowed it for expenses and should also submit budget esti mates before the next budget is made up next fall. The Commission's first and onlj appropriation was enacted in 1920 the year it was formed, Walsh said adding that apparently this had been considered a continuing appropriation. Each year since the Commission has subtracted from the fees and taxes it collects |30,000—$10,000 for salaries and $20,000 for expenses. Walsh's opinion was given under a provision of the new act which requires all government agencies to submit, within 90 days after the adjournment of the Legislature, a schedule showing how it plans to spend its appropriation. The- provision was one of several which centralizes in the Board of Public Works and the Budget Department a closer control over activities of the State government. Another centralizes Aug. 30 (£>)— ( the authority of the State purchas- and far-reaching 1 i Q S agent, who is aware of the trend of market prices, with that of the budget officer who must know these prices in order to make up budget estimates. Still another provision gives the Governor power to reduce appropriations by 25 per cent after the Legislature had approved them. This authority has been in some budget laws, but has never been embodied in separate legislation. The director of the budget is given power to examine the books and employes of all State agencies and all private agencies receiving State funds. In addition, he estimates the State income for the two years of each budget period and must pass on all amended budget schedules before they go to :he Governor for approval. Finally, he is directed to examine the State government for instances of WELCOMED to report to the Governor reorganizations which will eliminate them. The act gives the Board of Pubic Works authority to supervise all contracts for capital expendi- ures for the State with the exception of roads and bridges built y the State -Roads Commission, t also provides that the board hall set up uniform business prac- ices. including the forms of leases nd insurance, the payment of lileage to employes, and the form f State bonds. Bilbo - Backed Johnson Wins Majority O f Mississipp Governor-Nominee Is Mounting. JACKSON, Miss., Aug. 30 (&)— The majority of Mississippi's gov ernor-nominate Paul Burney John son of Hattiesburg today slowlj mounted toward the 25,000 mark in •eturns from Tuesday's Democratic primary as Senator Theodore (The Alan) Bilbo scored victory over hi: senatorial colleague, Pat Harrison Harrison's candidate. Martin Sen lett Conner, was defeated in hi effort to regain the governorship after the four-year interim required jy law. Republican votes are so ew that the Democratic nomination s tantamount to election in this state. The count early today was: John >on. 115,139; Conner, 95,113, with 1345 of the state's 1160 precincts eported. About 50,000 votes were jelieved unreported. Conner's defeat puts the Bilbo Johnson forces in power in 1940 vhen Mississippi will send IS dele ;ates to the national Democratic onvention. Bilbo is an outspoker idvocate of a third term for Presi dent Roosevelt. The Johnson victory likewise in reased Bilbo's political stature, ,-hich will be needed next year .-hen he seeks election to his sec- nd term in the Senate, as there re indications Governor Hugh Vhite wants to unseat him. White ras allied in the primary campaign vith Harrison and others. Conner's defeat somewhat blight- d the "favorite son" talk for Harison, whose friends will not be in ontrol of the state's delegation ext year. Neither Harrison nor ilbo openly campaigned for their avoritcs, but they announced their upport, and worked behind the cenes. Covertly, they have feuded since 1035.

(Continued from Page 1) progress depended on the German attitude.) As evidence of Germany's willingness to have the issues with Poland negotiated, German informed quarters pointed to the discussions uow going on with the British government. Authoritative quarters -were emphatic in stating that "the efforts of the two sovereigns for the maintenance of peace and the European consciousness of responsibility which is reflected by this offer receive general appreciative recognition." "This exchange of thoughts proves that German efforts are proceeding in the same direction as those of the two sovereigns," they said. Germany's demand for the return of Danzig and the Polish Corridor, however, they declared, remained unaltered. Germany has taken the initiative toward a peaceful solution by Hitler's communication to Chamberlain, they said. These persons added that now the initiative must be taken by Great Britain to bring Poland to a state of readiness to deal with Germany, always, of course, on the basis of Germany's irrevocable demands. The possibility that Foreign Minister Jozef Beck of Poland might come to Berlin was neither affirmed nor denied. (In London diplomatic quarters there was a suggestion that Hitler might want a special Polish envoy sent to Berlin; it was not disclosed whether the Fuehrer definitely suggested this in his latest note to Britain). In the Wilhelmstrasse there was a constant coming and going of diplomatic limousines. The fact that the Belgian ambassador's car was parked directly before the office of Foreign Minister Joachim von Ribbentrop gave rise to speculation in the crowd before the chancellery that Brussels might become the scene of a mediation_conference. Much Spent For NYA Labor Here (Continued from Page 1) types. The widespread use that facilities provided through N.Y.A. projects have received, show they ure needed. The fact that the projects have been locally sponsored by cities, counties, villages, school districts and other governmental subdivisions indicate they are regarded as useful and desirable. For the most part N.Y.A. expenditures have been for wages, while sponsoring agencies have contributed to th e purchase of materials and equipment. Not only did these part-time NYA jobs provide younsgters with a much-needed cash income, but they provided an opportunity for boys and girls to acquire .sound habits of work and experience. The basic skills which youths have developed on N.Y.A. projects will enable them more readily to secure jobs in private industry when openings are available. It is a common practice on N.Y.A. projects to try youths out on several types of work in order that they may thus gain a broader understanding of the problems attaching to various trades, and a better knowledge of their own aptitudes and abilities. After having worked at several different types of jobs these young people are in a position to make a more considered choice of a vocation in line with their talents. All N.Y.A. project workers are required to register at Public employment offices and in an effort to help young people secure jobs in private industry the National Youth Administration has fostered establishment of a junior placement service in connection with the employment services of the several states. Shutdown Of Oil Wells Nears End Six - State .Shutdown Causes Crude Prices To Move Upward. TULSA, Okla., Aug. 30 (/p)—Production of crude oil—and its price —surged upward today as the shutdown of wells in six mid-western states approached an end. An unprecedented experiment, stoppage of 68 per cent of the nation's production was ordered by Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas, Louisiana, New Mexico and Arkansas when many major purchasers of crude dropped the price an average of 20 cents a barrel. Texas, which produces nearly 40 per cent of the nation's oil, permitted its SS,000 wells to reopen today, two days ahead of expectation. Humble Oil and Refining Co., largest producer and purchaser In Texas, rescinded its price redifctions. Most other majors which had not already taken similar action followed Humble. Sinclair-Prairie Oil Marketing Co., which started the price slashing- Aug. 10 with a 20-cent cut, let its lower postings stand. Arkansas already was gradually lifting its shutdown. Louisiana's expired last nighl. Oklahoma officials set 7 a. m. Friday for resumption of production. The Kansas Corporation Commission gathered today to decide when restrictions will be lifted, and indications were New Mexico will reopen Saturday. HITLER NAY NEGOTIATE WTHPOIES (Continued from Page i) with. Poland concerning Hitler's claims for Danzig, the Polish Corridor and other concessions would be welcomed in London, reliable quarters emphasized that demands such as these could scarcely pro\*e acceptable as a basis for discussion. The disclosure, however, that a further British communication to Germany was planned indicated that the London government was anxious to keep conversations going as long as possible, both in the hope of finding a basis of settlement and also, as one diplomatic informant put so-called "war it, of to prolong the nerves" for its possible effect inside Germany. Hitler's note was said in official circles to be three and a half pages of. typed foolscap.

Aug. 30 (#>).—A study reported today by the Department of Commerce tells the story of the rising cost of operating and maintaining state governments. The total cost for the 4S states in 1937, the last year for which complete figures are available, was $2,061,887,000, an increase of G7.G per cent over the $1,552,075,000 expended in 1932. The cost of Maryland was $28,427,000 in 1937, compared with $22,060.000 in 1932. The cost was exclusive of operating public-service enterprises and of payments for interest and outlays as well as payments for debt retirement and other non-cost payments. as only emphasizing question was one of TODAY'S STOCK QUOTATIONS Quotations by Mackubin, Legg & Co., Wareham Building, Hagerstown, Md.

The British were said to be asking whether it should be thus interpreted that the urgency. Meanwhile P r i m e Minister Chamberlain and Hitler pursued a policy of silent diplomacy to avert public discussion that might upset their "war or peace" exchange on Europe's crisis. Arrival of Hitler's reply to the British statement oC position late last night caused^a flurry of activity that continued until early this morning. Chamberlain and Foreign Secretary Lord Halifax studied the message until long after midnight.
