The Ethiopian losses are estimated nt 10.000 dpnrt nnd many morp wounded. Thp Tptnhipn region Is now completely In the hands of thp Italians nnd thplr way to the confer of thp country Is fairly cJpnr. Dispatches from Addis Ababa admitted that the Italians also were advanclnp rapidly in the southern part of the country and said Rns Destfl Demtu's army and large numbers of warriors from all over the south were gathering to try to stop them. Marshal Badogllo's troops in the north were besieging Abbi Addl, 25 miles west of Makale and the 5,000 Ethiopians there were said to be facing surrender or extermination. With these successes on the military side, Mussolini was reported to be losing economically because of the increasing pressure of the various sanctions against Italy. Because of nis weakened position at home, it was said in Geneva and Paris he probably would be disposed to negotiate peace If terms satisfactory enough to save his face are proposed. The sanctions committee of the League of Nations unexpectedly decided that Mussolini shoujd' be asked once more whether he Is ready to discuss peace; and It was understood that If he said no, the league would proceed to Impose an embargo on oil. Such a step, Mus- Bollni has repeatedly asserted, would mean war in Europe. Emperor Haile Selassie, accord- Ing to Geneva dispatches, sent a -message to Great Britain, offering to discuss peace on the basis of the status quo, letting Italy retain the territory she has occupied, provided King Edward will act as Intermediary. Japan Military Revolt Ends in Failure JAPAN was calming down after «J the amazing revolt and attempted coup de' etat of a thousand soldiers ted by a group of young "fascist" officers who thought the Okada government was hampering the military progress of the nation. So far as can be Judged at this distance, the net results of the uprising were: Admiral Viscount Makoto Salto, former premier and lord keeper of the privy seal; Koreklyo Takahashl, minister of finance, and Gen. Jotaro Watanabe, chief of military education, were assassinated by the rebels. Premier Okada escaped death, his brother-in-law being mistaken for him and slain. The mutineers, threatened by loyal troops and the fleet, obeyed an edict by Emperor Hirohlto and surrendered. Of their 23 leaders, two committed suicide and the rest were put In prison to await probable trial by court martial. One other Important result Is likely to follow the uprising, and that is the formation of a new government more national In character and Including some able military men. That Is what the army wants, not caring especially who' Is premier. Okada, after emerging from his place of hiding, offered his resignation, but the emperor commanded him to carry on for the present. It may be Japan will really be the gainer for the revolt, but It suffered one great loss In the death of Takahashl, who was a financial genius. The whole affair emphasizes the fact that the Japanese do not look with disfavor on assassinations and suicides that are motivated by "patriotism." Building Service Strike Cripples New York M ORE than 150,000 workers In 110,000 buildings in New York city were called out on strike by James J. Bambrlck, president of the Building Service Employees' International union, and the sky-scrapers from the Battery to Washington Heights were badly crippled. Elevator men stopped their cars, furnace men banked their fires and scrubwomen threw down their mops and all marched out of the buildings and formed picket lines. There strike said tho owners must now sien Ihe union terms nnd that he would accept no mils for arbitration. Enoh building, hp nssprtprt. nmsl sipn for itself. Since the strike affeoted not only office buildings but Innumerable apartment bnlldlnirs also, the occupants of the Inttpr were deprived of hent and telephone connections, and In many cases sick persons were marooned without food supplies. This led Mayor Ln Guardla to call the city health officials Into conference, nnd declare a civic emergency and order Health Commissioner Rice to spe that fires were stoked and that trips necessary to health of the tenants and care of the sick were made in all residence buildings of more than six floors. Union officials in Akron, Ohio, warned the law enforcement officials there that a general strike would be called in that city if force were used to break the strike blockade by pickets at the Goodyear Tire and Rubber company plant. About 14,000 workers of Akron are Idle because of the strike, which was started In protest against layoffs which the company said were seasonal reductions In production. Jews in Saar No Longer Have Any Protection C*ULL sovereignty over the Saar " Is now possessed by Germany. The supreme tribunal which was left there for a year after the government was turned over to the reich January 13, 1933, has been dissolved. Its function was to protect Jews, political refugees and others who feared reprisals, and now they have no protection, for the year has expired during which the German government promised there should be no discrimination "on account of race, religion or language." The Nazi governor of the coal basin already has said In public speeches that soon after this assurance lapsed "the Saar will become the most Jewless part of Germany." During the winter Olympic games the campaign against Jews In Germany was practically suspended In order not to offend foreign visitors. It has now been resumed with vigor. Putting New Farm Bill Into Quick Operation IMMEDIATELY after President *• Roosevelt signed the new soil conservation-farm relief act passed to take the place of the Invalidated AAA, Adminlstra- for Chester C. Davis began planning ways to spend $500,000,000 authorized. Under his orders more than five thousand employees of the AAA who had ibeen waiting since January 6 for something to do got bnsy placing the new program into effect. The goal of the new law, Mr. Roosevelt said in announcing his signature, is parity, not of farm prices but of farm income. He said the New Deal has "not abandoned and will not abandon" the principle nf equality for agriculture. The President, In a formal statement, stressed three "wajor objectives" of the program which he said are "Inseparable and of necessity linked with the national welfare'" They were: 1. "The conservation of the soil Itself through wise and proper land use. 2. "The re-establishment and maintenance of farm income at fair levels so that the great gains made by agriculture In the last three years can be preserved and national recovery continue. 3. "The protection of consumers by assuring adequate supplies of food and fiber now and in the future." Davis planned, as the first move, a series of four conferences witii agricultural leaders in Memphis, Chicago, New York and Salt Lake City to formulate plans to take 30,000,000 acres out of commercial production this year and place them In legumes and other soil conserving crops. The o)il t.lfcpn thpro frvw U* ;•*•*«* u< ttu« st:Ue onpitol iv'isvih* In Austin nnd i?ov, James V. AUrtxl of To.vas nnd Cov. Philip LaFcllrtte of \Yls- oonsln went along to take part In the ceremonies. The party then went to Huntsville, where Gen. Sam Houston gathered an army of Texnns to fight the Mexicans, and there Gov. Hill MeAllster of Tennessee made the address. San Antonio and other cities followed on the program, and the celebrations will continue for months, reaching a climax In the opening of June 0 of tiie centennial exposition at Dallas. Removal of Gen. Hagood Stirs Up Big Row S UMMARY removal of Maj. Gen. Johnson Hngood from his command of the Eighth corps area because of his critical expressions concerning the WPA and other New Deal activities stirred up a pretty row In Washington. Gen. Malln Craig, chief of staff, signed the order t o Hagood, by order of the secretary of war and the President The Gen. Hagood Republicans In con- some scattered fighting between the pickets and men hastily hired to take their places, but the entire police force of the city was mobilized In a hurry to preserve the peace. For almost a month the union leaders and building operators bad been trying in vain to reach an agreement that would avert the Strike. Bambrlck as be called the Federal Judge Ritter Impeached by House A RTICLES of Impeachment ** against Federal Judge Halsted L. Ritter of the Southern district of Florida were voted by the house of representatives. The vote was 181 to 140. The Judge is accused of accepting from a former law partner who collected $00,000 in fees in Ritter's court. This Impeachment Is the twelfth voted by the house in American history. Of the 11 men previously impeached eight have been judges, one a senator, another a cabinet officer, and the other was a President, Andrew Johnson. Only three, all judges, were found guilty by the senate, which sits as the court in such cases. gross, backed up by Tom Blanton of Texas and some other Democrats, assailed the action vigorously, and Senator Metcalf of Rhode Island introduced a resolution for an Inquiry into the incident In behalf of "free speech." Breaking its usual "rule of si- dence," the War department made public a letter from General Craig to Secretary Dern, declaring Hagood's record was "marked by repeated examples of lack of self- control, irresponsible and Intemperate statements." Hagood had told a house subcommittee that it was "almost impossible" to get WPA'S "stage money'" for "anything worthwhile." These remarks, said Craig, "can only be characterized as flippant in tone and entirely uncalled for and designed to bring ridicule and contempt upon civil agencies of the government." Accusing him of "thinly veiled" opposition and "contempt" toward War department policies in the past, Craig pointed out as "contemptuous": Hagood's references to CCC activities as "hobbies," "collecting postage stamps" and "taking an Interest In butterflies." Breckinridge in Ohio's Democratic Primary DRESIDENT ROOSEVELT appar- *• ently Isn't going to have the Democratic Presidential primary In Ohio all to himself. C. A. Weinman of Columbus announced he had received petitions signed by Col. Henry Breckinridge of New York, to enter his name, and said he would at once set about getting the necessary 1,000 signatures from 30 counties. This does not mean an attempt to get pledged convention delegates, there being in Ohio a separate Presidential preference ballot. Breckinridge is a member of the American Liberty league, and Is attorney for Col. Charles A. Lindbergh. Boulder Dam Turned Over to the Government /COMPLETED two nnd one-half ^-* years ahead of schedule, Boulder dam and its power houses were turned over to the reclamation service. The Job was the biggest single contract ever executed for the government. There was no ceremony In the transfer. Frank Crowe, construction superintendent for the Six Companies, Inc., contractors, said to Ralph Lowry, reclamation service engineer: "Take it; it's yours now," and that was all. The dam and power houses are done, but there Is plenty of work on the entire project remaining to keep the government engineers busy for a long time. The Six Companies received $54,500,000, and the total cost will be $105,000,000, In addition to the federal project, which includes an all-American canal in Imperial Valley, Calif., there is under way a $220,000,000 aqueduct to southern allfornla. A. F. of L. Estimates the Unemployed at 12,626,000 A CCORDING to the American -TV. Federation of Labor, the num her of unemployed in January wai. 12,628,000, and the Increase from December to January was the great est In five years. "To lose ground to duch an ex tent at this time is nothing short of tragic," the federation said in reporting that Us survey indicated 1,229,000 persons who had lobs In December lost them in January. The survey blamed lengtbene< working hours and slackened man ufacturlng operations for Hie lob losses. Out Of the 12,620,000 unemployed in January, the federation said 8,524,000 now had WPA work while PWA took in 148.25!) others Washington.—A routine War department order came through the other day which Thunder &i\A, cryptically i Over Hagood "By direction of the President, Maj. Gen. Johnson Hagood, U. S. A., is relieved from assignment to the command of the Eighth corps area and further duty at Fort Sam Houston, Texas. Major General Hagood will proceed to his home and await orders." Each day, there comes from the War department anywhere from two or three to a couple of dozen orders by which army oflicers are tansferred from one post to another, from one assignment to another or given new instructions. It Is not unusual at all. That Is why I said at the outset of this item that the order respecting General Hngood was routine. But it was routine only in the language that was used. Otherwise, It was significant. Just how significant It will prove to be remains as a secret to be unfolded by the future. Suffice to say that seldom has one minor Incident of government admiaistration created such a storm as this army order be- ause It has become a political is- ue. General Hagood Is the third anking officer In the United States army. He has been In the service ;omething like forty years. His •ecord Is generally regarded as iistineulshed, but at the same time le has never been a pussyfoot. He has spoken boldly, sometimes too >oldly and sometimes out of turn, yet I think it is generally agreed :hat General Hagood is sincere. But, to go back of the "routine army order" by which he was summarily relieved of his command nt he important army post of Fort Sam Houston, we find a record of eneral Hagood's testimony before an appropriations committee in the house of representatives. In that estimony, General Hagood spoke with his usual bluntness. He ap- mrently offended somebody when did It. His testimony has been criticized and commended, the War department and Secretary Dern have been attacked and defended and even President Roosevelt has )een dragged into the controversy Because somewhere, somehow New Deal opposition has become convinced that President Roosevelt and Secretary Dern punished General Hagood by removing him from his post because he dared to point out ilukes and flaws and ridiculous aspects in New Deal policies of handling taxpayers' money. * * * General • Hagood was,, called be- Tore the appropriations committee , by its chairman Speaks and told to ex- Freely press h 1 s candid sentiments, h 1 s honest convictions and any constructive suggestions he might have respecting improvement of the United States army. The general, somewhat blusterlngly, related to the committee that the army must have additional housing facilities He related conditions In many army posts and asserted that many persons on relief were accorded better places to live than Uncle Sam's soldiers. That part aroused no particular controversy but when General Hagood told the committee of the difficulty the responsible army authorities have in getting money with which to provide better houslim for the soldiers, he stepped on administration toes by saying that It was more difficult to get "five cent's for a pencil than a thousand dollars with which to teach Civilian Conservation corps boys new hobbles or boondoggling." He said he couM get a hundred dollars to build a gravel walk and a rose garden but could not get ten dollars with which to repair a broken steam pipe in an army barracks. The next outburst by the general brought forth his description that money being handled by Relief Ad mlnistrator Hopkins was stage money; that nothing worth while or of a permanent character was being done with that money and the explanation that he called It stage money because "it is being handed around and you can do nothing with it in the end." His plea was that some of these funds which he said were being otherwise wasted should be employed to build structures of concrete and steel "that can be shown to our grandchildren 50 years from now." In hearing General Hugood's testimony, the committee understood that the War department had given him permission to speak freely. Indeed, such assurance had been passed along to the committee from the War department but apparently the War department did not know what General Hagood had on his chest. If It had known, It certainly could have expected exactly such expressions because Gen era! Hugood never has pulled UU punches. Be has said each time what he thought By saying what he thought, however, he undoubtedly moved across the line of discretion. Army officers must guard their speech. They are under disciplinary regulations. It has to be so. Otherwise, we would see frequent outbursts by army officers in opposition to established policies, rules and regulations and it takes no stretch of the imagination to see what a disordered mess would result On the other hand, General Hagood was certainly privileged to be- lleve that his ob- Then the aervatlons were Storm Broke being made only for the committee of congress before which he appeared. The doors to the committee room were closed and locked nnd only committee members were In attendance. It happened, however, that subsequently the stenographic record of the committee hearings was made public and when that happened, the storm broke. Almost simultaneously with the removal of the bond of secrecy on the committee record, the War department order denorning General Hagood was written. When that happened, the politicians literally blew up. They shouted charges of censorship, terrorism by the President and Secretary Dern, dictatorship political punishment and half a dozen other vicious accusations. A few of the administration spokesmen in congress defended the War department action. Almost in the same breath these administration spokesmen sought confer ences with Secretary Dern and others In an attempt to persuade the President and the war secretary tn soften the punishment but those moves were futile ami Representative Blanton, Texas Democrat, shouted on the floor of the house that the Hagood punishment would cost the Democratic party "a million votes unless it were withdrawn." As a part of the defense of the War department action. Gen. Malin Craig, chief of staff of the army, made public his memorandum to the secretary of war respecting General Hagood's attitude and his testimony before the congressional committee. In the' course of this 2,000 - word memorandum. General Craig described General Hagood as a "wise-cracker," and he was probably correct In so far as General Hagood's remarks about stage money were concerned. Yet, I have found very few among the Washington observers whose opinions are worth while who saw in the Craig memorandum any real justification for the severe punishment meted out to General Hagood. The order still stands. General Hagood is going to his home in Charleston, S. C., "to await orders." No one familiar with the army procedure expects that General Hagood ever again will be given an army assignment. He will be sixty-four years old next year and at\ that time automatically retires from active duty. So there Is hardly any question but that General Hagood has held his last command. Tne whole situation, suddenly come to be known as the Hagood case, Is bound to be multiplied and mirrored. It will figure In the coming political campaign because, however justified the War department action may have been In the Interest of discipline and good army administration, there are thousands of individuals who never will be convinced that the Hagood removal was for any purpose other than as punishment because he criticized New Deal spending policies. • * * Although there Is, and can he, no connection between the two, it was the basis for a U. S. at really humorous Dallas Fair reaction that dur- • Ing the time when the controversy raged over General Hagood's removal from his Texas army post, a federal government committee was busily engaged in making _plans for federal participation In 'the Texas Centennial exposition which opens at Dallas June 6. Uncle Sam Is spending $:i,000,000—the largest sum congress ever has authorized for federal participation In such-a show — so that twenty odd government agencies can display to exposition visitors what the government has done with Its billions since the cards were shuffled for the New Deal. The Agricultural department, as usual, will be represented by the largest of all federal exhibits. The Commerce department and the State, War, Niivy, Treasury, Jus tice< Post Office, interior and Labor departments will have their booths or buildings. The Federal Housing administration and the Farm ('red it administration will he there with displays of their wares, and the Public Health service will attempt to further the cause of health ir. its usual splendid fashion. ® We«t<>rn N«w»p«p«r Coign.

Also, Hitler will remember that- in 1914 Germany thought she had Italy in a "triple alliance" — Italy- Austrla-Germany, but Italy did not stay. Had she stayed, the war might have ended otherwise. That Increases Mussolini's bitterness, with England trying to cause Italy's defeat by barbarous Ethiopia. Mr. Eden, young foreign secretary, tells England modern conditions are "dreadfully" like conditions before 1914. England must arm herself to the teeth and have, for final objective, "a world-wide system of collective security which embraces all nations in an authority which is unchallenged and unchallengeable." That might be done by two or three countries closely united, although the airplane makes everything in war uncertain. It might destroy a capital city and an alliance In one morning, us a pistol destroys the strongest man. Countess Barbara Button Haug- wltz-Rev'entlow has a new baby boy weighing seven and a half pounds, and twenty million dollars; that in gold at the present price would weigh more than thirty thousand pounds. Ask Barbara Hutton Haug- witz-Reventlow, as she holds that small baby, its eyes not focused, one small hand holding her finger, whether she would rather have the baby or the $20,000,000, and she will think your question silly. She would not take a million millions for the baby. This proves that any good young woman who marries a kind young man may be richer than any "five and ten" heiress. Gen. William E. Mitchell was buried In the family plot in Milwaukee, not in Arlington cemetery Having fought all his life against the enemies of his country and the stupidity of his. superiors,' he wanted peace at last. He lies beside his father, a United States senator from Wisconsin. General Mitchell has gone wherever patriotic, brave men go; some that opposed him will not follow him there. At Greenwood Lake, N.
