II * li I LENOX TIME TABLE, LENOX, IOWA By Edward W. Pickard © Western Nnrspafer Unfon Benito Mussolini Mussolini Abolishes Chamber of Deputies B ENITO MUSSOLINI evidently expects another European war and In preparation for it he an nounced several drastic measures on the seventeenth anniversary of the founding of the Fascist party. He abolished the chnm her of deputies, substituting for it n council of guilds; and he also eliminated the country's large industries, leaving the medium and small private industries In existence. This latter .move, he told the council of the 22 guilds of the corporative state, was •to Increase the nation's economic self-sufficiency. "When and how iWar will come, one does not know," lie said, "but the wheel of fate turns fast." . Mussolini asserted the large Industries, particularly those working for the defense of the nation, would be formed Into organizations called ."key Industries." These, he said, "will be run directly or indirectly by the government. Some will have mixed organization." He drew tremendous cheers from the audience, rising In the gorgeous Julius Caesar hall of the capltol building, on Capitoline hill, when he .declared that with this reform, the Fascist party reached fulfillment of Its purposes. jRussia and Poland Don't Trust Negotiations TpASTERN Europe, especially sovl- -*-' et Russia and Poland, Is distrustful of the negotiations among the Locarno powers. Russia, according to Karl Radek, authoritative writer in Moscow, is convinced she must rely for her safety mainly on her own resources for defense, and accordingly will strengthen her armed forces, already numbering 1,300,000 men. He described commitments of the four Locarno powers In regard to future action as "so uncertain that they can be discounted as not existing at all." . Suggestions offered In London for the summoning of an international conference to discuss new agreements Radek found to be "so vague" as to appear to be "nothing more than a capsule to quiet the nerves of countries for which Hitler has expressed no particular love." The Polish government was decidedly worried by reports of secret negotiations in London behind the scenes of the conference of the Locarno powers. These reports were forwarded by Col. Josef Beck, the foreign minister, who scented a plot to secure peace In western Europe at the expense of eastern Europe by granting Germany a free hand in the latter region. Beck thought there were possibilities of revision of the Versailles and other treaties. The Information he sent to Warsaw led the press there to publish bitter attacks on the course Great Britain apparently was pursuing. Joachim von Rlbbentrop Hitler Considers Reply to Peace Proposals "D EICIISFUEHRER HITLER re•"• called Joachim von Ribbentrop from London, where that diplomat had heard Germany condemned as a treaty violator by the League of Nations, and with him spent several days carefully planning his response to the proposals of the other four Locarno 1 powers. Others of his advisers participated In the conferences, but there was no doubt that Hitler himself would determine the course of the reich, and from the demonstrations in his honor over the week-end it appeared certain the German people would sustain him In his decision. Going to Breslau, Btill accompanied by Van Klbben- trop, Hitler told a big gathering of citizens: "We will not make a single compromise in internal or external politics. We want the world to know we will never capitulate before the resolutions and formulations of others." Declaring the world Is getting Itself entangled In military alliances Hitler promised: "We Germans wil not allow ourselves to be entangled because we have reconquered our sovereignty and intend to keep it.' The fuehrer answered charges that his peace proposals were mere Jy a gesture by saying: "I make no empty gestures. These were pro posals to insure the peace of th world for 25 years. Let other states men ask their peoples to express their opinion In votes as to whethe .they want war or peace. Maybe then the nations will come to agree ment, May God show us the rtgb way." Parts of the peace plan offered by the four Locarno powers that were most objectionable to the Germans were the creatloni of an international police zone 12 miles wide along the Rhlnelnnd frontier, and the submission of the Franco-Russian mutual aid treaty to the World Court. Foreign Secretary Eden urged Von Rlbbentrop before the latter left London for Berlin to prevail on Hitler to submit counter proposals. Eden emphasized that the four power proposals were not Intended to be final. Believing Hitler would be obdurate, the French cabinet prepared a program of sanctions against Germany for proposal to the league, although Foreign Minister Flandln and others doubted that England ivould agree to support it. Flandin ivus prepared for a struggle to keep Britain, Belgium and Italy in a united front with France against German efforts to drive them apart. The four Locarno powers are agreed n a virtual military alliance If the reichsfuehrer falls to accept their proposals for a new Rhlneland set- lement. Isabella Greenway Will Retire From Congress [SABELLA GREENWAY, the capable lady who has represented Arizona in congress since October, 1933, has announced In Tucson that she will retire from public life at the conclusion of her present term. She was first elected for the remainder of the term of Lewis Douglas, who resigned, to become director of the budget, and was re-elected In 1034. Mrs. Greenway wns and operate several ranches In irizona and New Mexico and a otel In Tucson, and is also inter- sted in some mining companies. Undoubtedly she could go back to ongress without opposition, but he says she wants to devote more ime to her private activities. A girlhood chum of Mrs. Roose- elt, Mrs. Greenway has been a fre- uent visitor at the White House during her two terms In the house. Great Floods Recede and Reconstruction Begins TNTREPID citizens of scores of T- cities and towns in the eastern nd New England states which were evastated by the unprecedented loods were digging out their homes ind places of business from tho mud and debris as the turbulent vaters of many rivers subsided. Re- onstruction and refitting began tverywhere immediately, and this, us well as the relief of the suffier- ng thousands, wns aided by funds otaling more than $43,000,000 allo- lated by President Roosevelt be- ore he left Washington for Florida. Rough estimates were that the to- al dead in 13 states were 160; the lomeless were 221,500, and the total property damage, $271,r>00,000. The ast figure probably would be tripled f one took Into account the losses 'rom interruption to Industry and :rade and the stopping of the wages of labor. Cities along the lower Ohio were hreatened as the flood waters raced down to the Mississippi and the Gulf of Mexico, but they had lad plenty of warning and were in a 'measure prepared. Of course many communities were submerged, jut the residents had moved to :iigher land. Everywhere In the devastated re- ions the Red Cross workers were msy with food, clothing and med- cal supplies, and In many places National Guardsmen were kept on duty to prevent looting. The people of the nation were respondln liberally to the call of President Roosevelt and Admiral Grayson, head of the Red Cross, for a fund of $3,000,000. , Doings of the Senators and Representatives S TILL refusing to appropriate $12,000,000 for the Florida ship canal, the senate passed the army bill carrying approximately $011 000,000. More than half the sum goes for the military activities of the War department. There will be no reduction in the number of CCC camps during most of the coming fiscal year, and the enrollees will be kept up to aboul the 350,000 mark. This was the decision of President Roosevelt after a threatened revolt of Democratic representatives induced him to change his mind In the matter. Senator Black, chairman of the senate lobbying committee, has add ed the Wichita Beacon to the papers whose telegrams he has seized or attempted to seize. The list also Includes the Hearst publications, the Cowles papers, and the Times Pub lishing company of Wichita Falls Tex Three Powers Agree to Limit Battleship Size f»REAT BRITAIN, the United vJ States and France, the only nations remaining In the London naval conference, accepted the final draft of a new treaty limiting the size of battleships to 35,000 tons, retaining 10,000 tons as the maximum for cruisers and providing that none of that size shall be built for six years. Norman H. Davis, chief of the American delegation, served notice that the United States would consider herself free from the large cruiser limit if Preat Britain should build more than 70 cruisers. Unsuccessful In keeping Japan and Italy plodged to naval limitation, the conferees wrote escape clauses In the treaty which would jermlt them to disregard the limits if Japan and other nonsigners exceeded them. President Goes South on His Fishing Trip P RESIDENT ROOSEVELT packed up his fishing tackle and started South for his annual angling cruise, this time on the new Presidential boat, the Potomac. He made a brief stop nt Winter Park, la., where he received an honorary degree from Rollins college. H. R. Tolley National Topics Interpreted "> by William Bruckart National Press Building Washington, D. C. Dr. Townsend Comes Out or Senator Borah JENATOR WILLIAM E. BORAH is campaigning earnestly for the Republican Presidential nomination, and has just received a big boost or his cause In the announcement hat Dr. Francis E. Townsend, ounder of the old age pension plan hat bears his name, will give the dahonn nil his support. Repudiat- ng President Roosevelt and chang- ng his registration at Long Beach, lalif., from Democratic to Repub- lean, Townsend said Borah was the inly Republican candidate who 'even approached" the standard oi he Townsendltes, although the senator has refused to Indorse the Townsend pension plan as it stands. Hitherto the Townsend organiza- ion had favored circulation of third larty petitions In every state to en- 1st millions of people as a demonstration of strength. So the doc- or's announcement Is a reversal ol Dollcy. If he can induce a considerable proportion of his followers o enter the Borah camp the sena- or's chances may be greatly en< hanced. Plans Announced for Soil Conservation Program OECRETARY OF AGRICULTURE WALLACE announced the eS' tablishment of five regions for administration of the soil conservation and domestic allotment act, substitute for the Invalid AAA. H. R. Tolley, administrator of the new plan, said the department already has begun a field service to administer the program In various states. As under the AAA, the leading part within the states is to be played by the farmers' county and community committees. Mr. Wallace also directed discontinuance of the four commodity divisions whose work of liquidat- ng AAA production control pro;rams will be taken over by the regional directors. The order leaves ntact other administrative units of the AAA, such a's the division of marketing and marketing agreements, division of program planning, and the division of the consumers' counsel. Effort to Keep Politics Out of WPA Administration R USH D. HOLT, the young Democratic senator from West Virinia, gave notice that he would continue to hammer at the Works Progress administration until a senate Investigation wns ordered. He demanded an inquiry into all relief activities under charge of Administrator Harry L. Hopkins, and other agencies affecting relief, the RFC, CVVA, and FERA. \ In reply to some of the charges made, Mr. Hopkins Issued this bulletin : ! No employee of WPA Is required to make any contribution to any political party. No WPA employee's job will .be in jeopardy because of failure to make such contribution. "No employee of the WPA shall at any time solicit contributions for any political party, and evidence of such solicitation will be cause for immediate discharge. The question whether or not tb contribute to any political party is a matter entirely for the voluntary decision of employees. "No person will be employed or discharged on the ground of his support or nonsupport of any candl date." Income Tax Collections Show Big Increase T E1E Treasury reported that In come tax collections for the firs 16 days of March amounted to $281, 758,032, or a gain of 40.4 per cen over the $192,429,413 In the corre spending period of last year, Prac tlcally all collection districts reg istered an Increase. Washington.—The President's latest message to congress, asking more than a bll- Thunder n 0 n and a half in Over Relief new money to spend on relief as be sees fit has caused political thunder to rumble again. It has brought out in the open much of the undercurrent of gossip that has been going on about political racketeering with federal funds and It has brought into sharp relief, Just ahead of the spring campaigning, the fact that the federal government has used something like $8,000,000,000 under the guise of relief ince President Roosevelt took ifflce. Naturally, the situation is Immersed In politics. All of the barges that were flung nt Mr. Roosevelt during previous sessions f congress when he had requested hat he be given, as he was given, lank checks on the treasury, hove een revived. In addition, new ac- usatlons and disclosures of petty raft and political machinations lave been dug up and flaunted In he face of the New Deal leaders, lore and more of these are coming o the surface and there Is no onger any question that throughout he relief organization there Is poll- los. This is true notwithstanding he strongly worded statement by Ir. Roosevelt that politics was not o figure in the administration of elief In any way. All of this leads up to the conclu- lon that whenever the federal gov- rnment horns in on administrative affairs of states, counties or munlcl- alities, the organization becomes o extensive that It is impossible or those at the top in Washington o know what goes on. It is but an- ither way of saying that the federal government ought to confine tself to federal affairs, matters of national scope Instead of attempt- ng to supersede the local governments In any function. * * * Since we are heading into a cam- jalgn In which Mr. Roosevelt Is seeking re-elec- Charge tlon, his opposl- Waste tlon ls making much of two bases of the spending and relief ituatlons. They are stressing the waste that they charge has perme- ted every phase of the relief ef- ort In the last three years as well as the waste that has taken place In the countless alphabetical agencies that Mr. Roosevelt has iullt up in the federal government. The relief machinery, Roosevelt opponents claim, has been convert- id Into a gigantic political machine, he chief object of which is to reelect Mr. Roosevelt. They claim as well that there has been created i bureaucracy that makes ' us, as ndivlduals, responsible to a thousand little dictators who act as prosecution, judge and jury over our every coming and going. All of these are harsh accusations but there is enough evidence available now to make it appear :hat there Is, at least, some truth upon which such charges can be based. Of course politicians will magnify all phases of every subject which they, discuss. The opposl- sitlon will make the crimes look heinous and the administration spokesmen will make everything :ook pure. Neither one is justified n going quite to the extent of the indicated trend. It seems to me that voters ought not be fully convinced by either side but that they ought to examine the picture from the local viewpoint where the evidence Is first-hand. * * * There are 3,071 counties In the United States. In nearly every one of them, there are More a Republican and Politics a Democratic county chairman. In many of the counties the Demo cratic county chairmen are trying to use the WPA and its relief set vjp for political advantage. In an equal number of counties Republican county chairmen are watch ing for and reporting irregularl ties. There can be no doubt, therefore, that the charges about relief being used politically will in crease In number as the campaign progresses if there Is ground for the charges. So, it is made to ap pear that the local voters will have a complete picture of conditions upon which to base their judgment Two recent instances where im portant individuals have called at tention to alleged corruption and political maneuvering under guid ance of relief leaders serve to sup port the contention I have just advanced that the local communities will have complete facts before them. I refer to the charges by Senator Holt, Democrat, of West Virginia, that the whole relief organization in his state is honeycombed with politics and the bitter attack by Governor Plnchot, Pennsylvania Republican, upon what he called the manhandling of relief administration in the state la which he formerly was the chief executive. Relief Administrator Hopkins, with the aid of poll- Iclans, has denied these charges n toto. Senator Holt called the Hopkins' denial a whitewash of his own appointees and Mr. Plnchot urned loose a fresh fire. T.his sort of thing probably will develop in every state In the Union. * * * I referred to the Presidential message asking an additional bll- lion and a half Ana Aaks tor relief. This New Taxes would not have created quite so much of a storm had It not fol- owed closely on the heels of the SVnlte House request for new axes. The combination of taxes and an additional appropriation to >e used ns previous blank checks mve been used by Mr. Roosevelt ms enabled those who are opposed to the President and those who, while they may support him for reelection, are not in accord with some <of his policies, to make pubic statements of their positions to i better advantage than was possible before. If they had been able only to oppose relief, ndmlnistra ion supporters could have accused them of being opposed to the relief of destitute. To put taxes and a >lank check together simply offers additional ammunition and a good many members of congress will use it before the new relief appropriation Is voted. I think there Is no doubt that Mr. Roosevelt will get the money. When Mr. Roosevelt wns voted 54,880,000,000 a year ago, his op- )onents threw up their hands and said that "you can't beat $4,880,000,000 for re-election." Now, one hears observations frequently ex- )ressed that while "you can't beat 54,880,000,000 for re-election," It is entirely possible that $4,880,000,000 plus almost that much more may )eat Itself. In other words, I have attempted here to present a comprehensive analysis of the pros and cons in order to show that since politics has crept In, has permeated the relief setup, the AAA organization and other New Deal agencies, it is entirely possible for a reaction to develop whereby the vast sum of money would be the cause of defeat rather than the cause of re-election for Mr. Roosevelt. • * * • Much Is being made of the President's proposal to tax the surpluses of corpora- Spht on tions. I have Tax Plan hitherto reported to you something of the nature of the tax proposals but there have been developments that bring the subject again to the fore. One of these, perhaps the most Interesting one, is differences that have arisen between men who are supposed to be the President's closest advisers. Professor Raymond Moley, now a magazine edl tor, lately criticized the tax plan most vigorously in his publication. At the same time, attention wns directed here to the recorded attitude of Prof. Rexford Guy Tugwell. Professor Tugwell published a book called "The Industrial Decline" not so long ago and in thai volume he advocated the • control of capital by the "driving of corporate surpluses into the open Investment market" by taxation These two views simply cannot be reconciled and yet they came from two individuals who have been very close to Mr. Roosevelt In an advisory way ever since Mr. Roosevelt entered the White House. Professor Moley takes the posl tion, editorially, that if, during the depression, American industry had been stripped of all surpluses, few of even the greatest corporations could have survived. He regards surpluses as life insurance policies for corporations and holds the con vlction that unless a corporation Is permitted to retain funds as I sees fit, It cannot protect Usel when our economic structure goes into a tullspln such as that through which we have been passing. The difference In viewpoint o these two men shows a sad stati of confusion among the "economli planners of the more abundan life," and demonstrates, among oth er things, that Professor Tugwel still has very great influence with the President. While we bave no beard many of Professor Tugwell' speeches lately, and it Is probablj true, as publicly stated by the op position, thav Professor Tugwel has been muzzled for the period of the campaign, there are man things being done under Preslden tial orders that have their origl In the Tugwell brain. He is pro ceeding merrily on his way wit the Resettlement Adininlstratio program, of which be is head, an has 14,000 employees on bis pa roll. All of which seems to indi cute that while Professor Tugwel will not make any more speeche calling upon farmers and laborer to ally themselves against "ou common enemy," he is still a ver, effective member of the New Dea administration. <& Western Newspaper Uoloo. BRISBANE THIS WEEK If Russia Joined Japan Not Heroic Action Lloyd George Hopeful England Still Safe Editors talk about Asia, led by Tapan, conquering the world. They might speculate on a union between Japan and Russia, Improbable.you will say, truly, but If Russian- Japanese hostility could be changed Into Russian - Japanese agreement a new world chapter might open. You hear of Russia's "Red army," 1,300,000 men, thorough- y armed, and 7,000,000 reserves. You see photographs of Russia's amphibian tanks, mounted with ma-nine guns, rolling over the land ;nd swimming rivers; you read about Intensive training of tens if thousands of Russian air pilots, parachute jumpers, etc., and see jven the broad-shouldered young Russian women drilling with rifles. Vestern Europe may have a prob- em closer at hand than Japan. Arthur IJrislinnc Our British cousins In the Revo- ution cheerfully let loose howling, scalping Indians on their cousins n the American colonies, and bolshevism might cheerfully turn Asiatic killing efficiency against western "capitalism." " v You remember how cheerfully the great historian Gibbon predicted :hat, In the American war, "with firmness all may go well," because 'Scotch Highlanders, Irish, Han- overians, Canadians, Indians, etc., will all In various shapes be employed." There Is no reason why Russia of 1036 should be more squeamish now than England at the end of the Eighteenth century. Lloyd George, who ought to know about Europe and war since he and old Clemenceau won the big war, tells Universal Service this present war Is "off," France having learned :hat "even her most ardent friends In Europe shrink from war." Lloyd George declares that peace 'without derogating from the dignity of'any of the powers" will be preserved. If France does not make it Impossible. Lloyd George says not 1 per cent of Englishmen would vote for war, and not 10 per cent for employing sanctions against Germany. If enough rich Americans go to England to "escape kidnapers" the kidnapers may move over after them, as professional gamblers follow on big ships. London police arrested Alfred Molyneux, thirty-one, trying to extort 51,000 from the Countess Barbara Hutton Haug- wltz-Reventlow, offering to reveal a plot to kidnap her baby. Police knew by the moderate price it could not be an American "snatcher" or confederate. Easily caught, the young man confessed he had Invented the plot. With "visibility cut to zero," street lights burning by day, not visible across the street, dust storms are blowing over parts of Oklahoma, Kansas, Colorado and New Mexico. By such displays of nature's power, for which man's foolishness is responsible, fertile areas of the world have been changed to deserts. A bill that would have limited work to five working days of six hours, or thirty hours a week, is dead in congress for the time being It would have given workers twenty-four hours off on Saturday and Sunday, eighteen hours off on even- other day— eight hours for sleep "ten for what we will." All that will come some day, but not by discouraging Improved machinery. An Intelligent young man who fought well in the big war speaks of "the z-to-l" advantage whici modern methods give to the defense over the attack. TO let the other man or nation come at you if you are prepared, has been wise ln th» past. It might be different in future wars, if the attacker, with a couple o thousand airplanes, dropping e s plosive bombs and poi on gas should surprise the enemy? '?De' ense" would have no 2-to-f advantage over that sort of attack Lloyds, the great English Insur ance concern, at first refused to In sure against war at any price Now L oyds will insure, otherwise -bet^ months.
