LENOX TIME TABLE, LENOX, IOWA 1" 'j > Pickard .£) Western Nrospn/KT Union J. Jasper Bell Townsend Plan Inquiry Attracts Attention W HILE waiting for Instructions ns to what to do In the matter of taxation, the members of the bouse—and many others—directed their attention to the investigation of the activities of the Townsend pension plan promoters. Speaker Byrns appointed on the probing committee of eight two avowed Townsend- ites—John H. Tolan, Democrat, and Samuel L. Collins, Republican, both from California. The chairman Is J. Jasper Bell of Missouri, Democrat, author of the resolution for the Investigation. It wns understood that Mr.Bellhnd already gathered a mass of Information to substantiate the charge that the Townsend plan has become a huge racket. The leaders of both parties in congress have been getting rather nervous over the growth of the Townsend movement and nre glad to see It attacked; but some Impartial observers call attention to the fact that the way the committee Is going after it 'smacks of unconstitutional abridgement of the right to petition. It was expected that one of the first questions to be considered by the committee would be the salaries received by Dr. Francis E. Townsend, author of the scheme, and R. E. Clements, former California real estate operator, co-founder and general manager. Clements has revealed to newspaper reporters that he and Doctor Townsend receive salaries of $100 a week each from OARP—the old age revolving pension organization—and $50 a week each from the Townsend national weekly, which claims a circulation of 250,000. It has been charged on the floor of the house that this newspaper, privately owned by Townsend and Clements, has a reserve fund of at least ?200,000. Congressman John Steven McGroarty, California's "poet laureate," says the Townsendltes will control the house of representatives at the next session, and adds: "They have built up the largest political organization in the history of America, with 10 million enrolled members. If you Include those who have signed petitions favoring the Townsend plan the number Is Increased to 30 million. By November it will be twice this large. This Investigation will vastly strengthen the Townsend movement and anybody that knows anything knows that. The American people like fair play and they know that this Investigation Is Just dirty politics." was burled In Arlington National cemetery with full military rites after funeral ceremonies that were I attended by President Roosevelt and many other high officials. Gen. Hagood Punished for New Deal Criticism A/TAJ. GEN. JOHNSON HAGOOD AVi recently suggested to the house appropriations subcommittee that congress take advantage of what he termed "WPA stnage money" and use it to improve housing at army posts. Within a few 'days came this order signed by Gen. Malin Craig, chief of stnff, by order of the secretary of war: "By order of the President, MaJ. Gen. Johnson Hagood, United States army, Is relieved from assignment to the command of the Eighth Corps area and further duty at Fort Sam Houston, Texas. MaJ. Gen. Hagood will proceed to his home and await orders. The travel directed Is necessary In the military service." 1* Two Prominent Men Are sj Claimed by Death «Vi * TQRATH took from the scene two ifA raen P roml "ent in notional life —Albert Cubell Ritchie, governor of Maryland for four terms, and Henry Latrobe Roosevelt, assistant secretary of the navy and 'distant cousin of the President. Mr. Ritchie was a leader among conservative Democrats, from the start a determined foe of national prohibition, and in 1032 a candidate for the Presidential noml- A - c - Ritchie nation by his party. Though beaten out by F, D. Roosevelt, he had the satisfaction of seeing his repeal plank put Into the Democratic plat- "*Yorrn. Of late he had been an outspoken critic of the New Deal policies, for he was a champion of state rights. Henry L. Roosevelt was the fifth member of his family to serve as assistant secretary of the navy, and In recent months he had played an Increasingly Important part In the affairs of the department, acting as secretary during the Illness Of Secretary Swangon. He was a student in the naval academy class of J009, but left before graduation to become, a second lieutenant In the marine corps, In which service be rose to the rank of colonel. He Week-End Activities of President Roosevelt PRESIDENT ROOSEVELT had a * busy week-end. First he went to Philadelphia and received from Temple university the honorary degree of doctor of jurisprudence. He delivered an address In the course of which he said: "True education depends upon freedom In the pursuit of truth. No group and no government can properly prescribe precisely what should constitute the body of knowledge with which true education Is concerned. The truth is found when men are free to pursue It. "It is this belief In the freedom of the mind, written Into our fundamental law and observed In our every day dealings with the problems of life, that distinguishes us as a nation." Next the President hurried up to Cambridge, Mass., to see his son John initiated into the old aristocratic Fly club of Harvard. Return- Ing to Hyde Pork, Mr. Roosevelt delivered a radio address marking brotherhood day of the national conference of Christians and Jews, and he called on all believing Americans to unite against the wave of irreliglon that challenges all faiths. "Tills Is no time," he said, "to make capital of religions disagreement, however honest. It Is time, rather, to make capital out of religious understanding. We who have faith cannot afford to fall out among ourselves. The very state of the world Is a summons for us to stand together." Ship Subsidy Measure Seems to Be Discarded T~\ EVELOPMENTS In Washington •»-' lead to the belief that the Copeland ship subsidy bill has been abandoned. Word came from the White House that the President, although he initiated the principles of the measure, would not press for Its passage; and Senator Royal S. Copeland, whose commerce committee Sen. Copeland approved the bill which was a part of the administration program, Is so Irritated that he may drop it. Senator Guffey of Pennsylvania has prepared a rival measure, not yet introduced, and Senator Black of Alabama Is opposed to the Copeland bill. Shipping interests have given warning that new construction for foreign trade will continue to be paralyzed by uncertainty and lead to additional Insistence by the Navy department on the building of Its own auxiliaries in partial compensation. New Farm Relief Bill Sent to Conference TATFFERENCES between the J -' house and senate versions of the new farm relief measure were utterly irreconcilable, If you could take the work of the conferees of both bodies to whom the bill was sent. Nevertheless, it was expected the disputes would all be adjusted within a few days and the measure sent to the White House. Senator Smith, chairman of the senate agriculture committee, voiced Indignant opposition to a house amendment providing that tenant farmers and sharecroppers shall bo included in cash benefits paid landowners for conserving soil nnd thus controlling production. Eden Warns That Another World War Impends /-IAPT. ANTHONY EDEN, British *-• foreign minister, stood up In the house of commons and warned the world that recurrence of the World war was imminent and In his opinion could not be averted except by a system of collective security "embracing all nations In an authority which U unchallenged and unchallengable." Eden Impressed upon members of the parliament the difference between a policy of collective security and one of encirclement, such as the "ring of steel" which Germany complains is being forged about her by France. "The British government will have no lot or part in encirclement," Eden said. Earlier In his speech the minister anounced that the sanctions already Imposed upon Italy by members of the League of Nations are achieving their purpose of hastening the cessation of war between Italy and Ethiopia. He failed to satisfy the opposition on the question of an oil embargo against Italy by sidestepping a definite commitment on such a boycott. Puerto Rico Slayings i May Start Reforms | P OLITICAL conditions in Puerto '• Rico, notoriously unsatisfactory, | may be rectified as a result of the • assassination In San Junn of E. Francis Rlgps, chief of the Insular police, and a 'district police chief. Klggs, a former United States army colonel, was shot by two Nationalists; two hours later District Police Chief Francisco Velez N. Ortiz attempted to {nit down a Nationalist riot at a cafe In the central town of Utundo and was killed. Gov. Blanton Wlnshlp announced that a full Inquiry Into the incidents would be energetically pushed. De ploring the slaying of RIggs a? "dastardly," he asserted a revlva of capital punishment and a ban against carrying of firearms, belnj urged upon the legislature, would prevent such crimes. The assassins of RIggs were caught and admitted the killing, say Ing it was In revenge for the Rio Pedras "massacre" In which police killed four Nationalists last November. While being questioned, the murderers, the police said, reache'J for guns and were shot to death. The Puerto Rlcan Nationalist movement is the Island's group campaigning for Independence from the United States. NATIONAL TOPICS INTERPRETED NATIONAl PRESS BLDG. WASHINGTON, D.C. SEC Head Is Worried by Stock Speculation J AMES M. LANDIS, chairman of the securities and exchange commission, speaking nt an alumni meeting at Princeton university, expressed great concern over Increased stock market speculation, and set forth three methods, whereby the government might curb It. These are: Control of banks arid brokerage credit, nntimanipul a tlo n laws, and a program to educate the public against unwise stock purchases. "One sees with concern," Landis said, "the efforts of traders to outguess events, like court decisions, and the Increasing tendency subtly generated to induce people to pour their savings Into the market with heedlessness as before. "Still too prevalent, as our monthly reports show, Is the tendency of officers arid directors to toy with the stock of their corporations at the expense of their true responsibility of functioning as executives." J. M. Landis Neutrality Act Extended for Another Year DOTH house and senate passed - 1 - 1 the resolution extending for one year the existing embargo on arms, ammunition, and Implements of war, and prohibiting loans and credits to belligerents. Senator Nye was out of the city when the senate assembled, an hour earlier than usual, to act on the measure. Hearing what was going on, he flew from Minneapolis through a storm and arrived five minutes before the final vote, but too late to put through any of hi? proposed amendments. Gen. "Billy" Mitchell Is Dead of Heart Attack /~\NE of the most spectacular and v - / dynamic figures In American life of today passed with the death ef Brig. Gen. William Mitchell In a New York hospital. He succumbed to a heart attack and Influenza al the age of fifty-seven years. "Billy," as he was known to airmen, was commander In chief of the American air forces In France during the World war and was decorated bj six governments. Afterwards, while yet In the regular service, he severely criticized the government's air preparedness policy and was court-martialed and suspended. Immediately resigning, he devoted himself to lecturing nnd writing to further his demands for a separate department of aviation In the cabinet, combining both army and navy air defense. Gen. Charles P. Stimmerall once aptly described Mitchell as the kind of soldier "who Is wonderful in war and terrible Is peace." Interesting Selections of Convention Delegates O ELECTIONS of delegates to the ^ national conventions, already being made In some states, are Interesting, especially In the case ol New York. Representative Fish, supporting Borah for the Republican Presidential nomination, led a hot fight to displace some of the "old guarc}" and lost, the state committee naming these delegates at large: Charles D. Hllles and Mrs. Ruth Pratt, members of the national committee ; Mrs. Robert Low Bacon, vice chairman of the state committee; Representative Bertrand H. Snell, minority leader of the house; Representative James W. Wasd'worth, former United States senator; Edward H. Butler, publisher of the Buffalo Evening News; John R. Crews, Brooklyn Leader; Charles H. Griffiths, Westchester county chairman. Tammany made public the list ot Us delegates to the Democratic convention, and It Is headed by Alfred E. Smith, who will represent the Up of Manhattan and Staten Island. Washington. — Congress, has given a fine Illustration of how , a horse soes up t( Neutrality the jump, then a Shell fulls to take It It faltered on the neutrality question. True, congress has re-enacted for another year the neutrality law that was put through under pressure a year ago but It did not have the necessary courage to go Into that question and work out anything of a permanent character. The result, I am convinced, Is that as soon as there Is any excuse whatsoever, neutrality for the United States will be noth- ng but a shell. I do not know, nor do I believe anybody can tell at this juncture whether the United States ought to embark on a rigid policy of Isola- Ion from affairs of the world but hat Is a question that Is subordinate at this moment. The point Is hat congress, a year ago, made a great show of neutrality and put )n a second stage performance on- y lately with the same theme song. Since It has backed away from HIP •eal Issue It begins to appear that he original action was but hollow mockery; that the politicians moved a year ago with the thought n mind that they would not have o go on record so soon and that hey could make the country feel t had elected statesmen. But, In- tead, their course had led them to he point where a decision had to 3e made—and they have dodged it. One of the reasons why this neu- rality question has become so !m- Dortant Is the combination of cir umstances that has developed In Europe. The maneuvers have put ur congress on the spot nnd It, ike so many previous times, again las wavered. It is difficult to forecast what Is going to happen in Europe but here are certain signs and por- ents that may not be Ignored. His- ory, as we all know, lias a habit f repeating itself and it promises o repeat itself In a hurry this time. Let us look at the European picture. On the one hand we have an alignment of France and England nd probably Russia. On the ither, we see Hitlerized Germany, Austria and ^.aly. There has been nothing more tangible thus far than a baring of fangs. Thnt is, no overt acts have been committed but It always 'has been the case that the snarling and show- Ing of teeth has provided the setting, the atmosphere, for more serious accusations. It may never happen that Germany or Austria or Italy will take steps which France or Russia could regard as an invasion of national rights and then, again, any one of them at any time may accidentally or deliberately do some minor tiling that would provoke hostilities. * * • The chief significance of the reported alignment of Italy with Germany nnd Austria New is that the Cen- Alignment tral Powers, as they stood In 101-1, have been augmented by the strength of Fascist Italy. It means that the Germany of 1914 has access to the North sea and the Mediterranean Instead of just the North sea as occurred '20 years ago. Coupled with that fact is the condition of a better defense for the Central Powers. If the agreement between Germany and Italy sticks. Germany has only the western and Russian fronts to maintain. Ft allows for a more compact military program because. Instead of guarding against Italy on the South, Germany lias an ally In that direction from which sources of supply can be established. The fresh understandings worked out between Franco and England really are nothing more than a restoration of the arrangement thut existed in the World war. The British, on the surface at least, have no compact with Russia but the French have a very definite agreement with the Soviet. It seems likely, therefore, that If hostilities should break out again, the British and the Soviet will have no difficulty In establishing a pact of mutua! help. As a sidelight, It seems to mi; that the new developments rather turn the spotlight on the policies of Pierre Laval, former French foreign minister, M. Laval, it will be remembered, was ousted because of alleged pro - Italian policies. He sought for months to maintain friendship between France and Italy because he feared to do otherwise would result In alignment of Mussolini with Hitler. The bulk of the French parliament disagreed with him, however, and M. Laval was replaced by Foreign Minister Flandin. Now, Europe has seen the prompt desertion of Mussolini from the French side and hla alignment with Hitler. So, the old picture has been put together again ID Europe with the only change being the Jilacement of Italy on the opposite side of the fence from where that nation stood in 11)14. But let not the fact tlmt the alignment differ? only because of Italy's position be minimized. It Is the most Important of the combination that has Developed In Europe. • • • The new situation. Insofar as Great Britain Is concerned, means that In case of a France Backs clash In the Med- Britain 1 terra nean between the forces of Mussolini and the Urltish there will he French support. It means, therefore, thnt Mussolini hardly dare disturb the concentration of British warships around the Suez. To do so would call down upon his head not only the shells of the British fleet but those of the French as well. For the French, the revived understanding with Great Britain gives support against the slow flow of Hitler lava into the Rhlnelnnd which was demilitarized by the Treaty of Versailles at the end of the World war. The French are very touchy about the Rhinelnnd and any attempt by Germany to fortify the territory makes French nerves very jittery. It Is only natural, then, thnt the French look upon the agreement with London as an assurance of security In event Hitler should strike in the Rhlnelnnd. Through It all, foreign advices Indicate that British fists are gradually being doubled up against Filter. This Is true notwithstanding :he fact that the new King Edward VIII Is trying to be friendly with >ermany. Foreign dispatches and private advices explain that there s a notable recurrence among the British of discussion recalling German atrocities in the World war. Slowly but surely throughout Eng- and the old hatred Is arising. On the northern frontier of Germany there In a new line of steel The Communistic state of Russia ooks with disfavor upon the Nazi. My Information Is that It would take very little to provoke trouble there. cr - Altogfther, the situation Is .one where, If a stone rolls down a m'bun tain side. It could very easily become the detonation cap that would explode an ammunition dump. With these facts In mind, one can understand readily the gravity of tbc relations between the United States and thp rest of the world. BRISBANE THIS WEEK What a Troubled World? What Will TVA Do?

Washington wonders what TVA will do with the Supreme court letting government enter the business of producing and selling power. Some suggest putting power on every farm, regardless of distance or cost, as rural mall delivery Is put on every farm. If every home Is entitled to government mall deli ,-ery, every farm should be entitled to government power delivery on the same basis. That would mean business for copper companies, more running water In cow barns, more Irrigated garden patches, more electric light after sundown In chicken coops.

If the future forces us into It and, In the meantime, there Is a sound arrangement worked out between nations of the western hemisphere, their combined strength ought to put an end to European strife morp quickly than if those European nations were left to fight it out alorif In other words, If Mr. Itoosevelt can work out a binding agreement between all the nations of the western hemisphere, they can exert a tremendous Influence. This Influence will carry further than on the homeland of any of the countries now involved In the European case of Jitters. It possibly may extend to the point of becoming the balance of power In the settlement o; colonial disputes between the central powers and the newly re-established allies. European Interests In South America are important and If our South American neighbors have the, Important weight of the United States on their side, they will be in it position, for the first time, to force proper adjustment of colonial rights In the western hemisphere Insofar ns those colonial rights are concerned In settlement of European differences. © Western Newspaper Union. Naming India*. Children Indian children of the North often are named for the first object the mother sees after the child Is born. Charles M. Schwab, seventy-four, still specializes in optimism, like the man who went to the race track, lost every cent, but escaped death In the railroad wreck. Mr. Schwab says labor conditions are the best In 56 years. He should know; he began as a laborer and did not get $5, or $3, or $2 a day. Industry he calls a "three-legged stool." Capitol, labor, management are the three legs. Put Charles M. Schwab back where he was 50 years ago, the same as then, In age and energy, and he would soon be at the head of a great Industry. Who does not believe It does not know Schwab. Russia, trying everything, experiments with a steam-propelled turbine plane for stratosphere flights. At such heights water boils at half the temperature necessary at sea level. The exhaust steam after heating the plane would be recovered 00 per cent. Two years ago William and George Bessler, in Los Angeles, built and flew a plane with a steam engine. There is still much to learn about flying. Uncle Sara, convinced that he Is his brother's keeper, after all, wants a peace agreement among all American republics. Beautiful. But if any republic decides to light, anyhow, it is to be hoped this country will not become arbitrator. "Judge not that ye be not judged," Is sound advice. We can no more decide the right and wrong of a row between Mussolini and England, or Chile and the Argentine, than we could between the two Kilkenny cats.
