Garnet "Hunger Marchers" Parade in the Capital A BOUT six hundred men and women, members of the recently organized Unemployed Workers Alliance, staged a big parade of "hunger marchers' In Washington, shouting demands, singing nnd waving banners. They sought to present a petition to I'resl dent Roosevelt In the White House but the best they could do was to obtain an audience from Secretary Marvin Mclntyre for a delegation headed by David Lasser, president of the alliance. Lasser declared after spending 30 minutes with the President's secretary: "Mr. Mclntyre gave us a lot of nice words, but nothing substantial. If nothing is done to give these people jobs there will be a hunger inarch on Washington next summer In which hundreds of thousands will take part. We are tired of Mr. Roosevelt's promissory notes." Lasser and his delegation also called on Vice President Garner at the Capitol and got even less satisfaction from him. "The jobless feel that we have been sold out by the Democratic party," Lesser declared, In present- Ing his petition. "I resent that," snapped the Vice President, reddening. "I have been In politics for -10 years and I don't think anybody has ever been sold out by the party." The marchers carried banners and placards with such inscriptions as: "Give the hankers home relief; we want Jobs!" "Slaves will not be killed," "We demand employment insurance," "Pass the I.Iarcantonlo bill," this being a C billion-dollar relief bill Introduced by the New York city representative. Labor Says Industry Is Arming for Conflict TJEFORB the senate subcommittee *-* on labor appeared spokesmen for organized labor with charges that there is a great movement of machine guns, tear gas and police clubs Into Industrial centers for use in contending with strikes and attendant disorders. The first witness to tell the story of the arming of industrial plants for conflicts with labor was J. P. Harris, a steel worker from Portsmouth, Oiiio. In r-jii of bis assertions came a mass of data compiled b'y the seriate munitions investigating committee and presented at the hearing by Ileber Blankenhorn, an employee of the national labor relations board. At one point Harris testified that ho knew the Wheeling Steel corporation at Portsmouth was "arming," a statement that brought from corporation officials at Portsmouth an assertion that company police were armed to protect property against "thieves and firebugs, and they will continue to be armed." At another point In the hearing there was testimony that general "rumors" were being circulated that the Ford Motor company was "shot through" with spies, hired to report on the activities of labor. Death of James M. Beck Is Loss to Nation C UDD10N death, due to a coronary ^ thrombosis, came to James M. Beck nt bis residence In Washington, and all Informed Americans mourn the demise of this public spirited citizen and eminent authority o n constitutional law. Though he wns a sturdy and conscientious opponent of the present national adminlstra tlon, leading ofll- cials In Washington united with the lie- publicans in declar- J ' M> Beck ing that In his death the nation had sustained a great loss. Mr. Beck was not only one of the foremost lawyers of America but for more than three decades was a public man of distinction, holding numerous offices at Washington, and an Influential place in the counsels of the Republican party. Born In Philadelphia in 1S01, he first held office as United States attorney for the eastern district of Pennsylvania, as a Democrat. He left that party on the silver issue and was made an assistant attorney general by President McKiriley. In 1921 Mr. Harding appointed him solicitor general, an office which he filled with distinction. He then served three terms In congress, where he was one of the best debaters, and retired in 103-1 because he thought congress had become a "rubber stamp." Since then he had been prominent In the legal attacks on various phases of the New Deal. Richard Yates, former governor of Illinois and former congressman. died in Springfield nt the age of seventy-five years. The son of the Civil war governor of the state, Mr. Vates was for many years, a picturesque figure In Illinois poll- tics and an influential member of the Republican party. Maryland Young Democrats Hear Mr. Roosevelt PRESIDENT ROOSEVELT, ac' companied by Mrs. Roosevelt, attended Easter services at St. Thomas Episcopal church, after the First Lady had witnessed the Knights Templar sunrise service at the Arlington amphitheater. Next day the President went to Baltimore where he addressed the Maryland Young Democratic clubs. Mr. Koosevelt accepted an invitation to speak before the annual convention of the Daughters of the American Revolution which opens in Washington April 20. He also will deliver an address on April 25 at the Jefferson banquet of the National Democratic club in New York. Harry L. Hopkins Congressmen Working on Taxes and Relief C ONGRESS settled down to earnest work that would clear the way for early adjournment, the two chief matters under consideration being taxes and relief. Democratic members of the house ways and means committee worked' in executive session to draw up the new revenue measure which they expect will yield about .$109,000,000 in additional taxes during the next year. The minority members stayed away, scornfully asserting their presence was useless because the preparation of the measure wns utterly partisan. Representative A. P. Lamneck of Ohio, Democrat, was insistent on his plan to raise $500,000,000 by a flat 20 to 22 per cent tax on corporation income. To produce 5203,000,000 more and bring his plan nearly up to the money requirement outlined by President Roosevelt, Lamneck would repeal the present exemption of corporation dividends from the normal income tax rate. On that, he was in agreement with the committee program. Harry L. Hopkins, head of the WPA, appeared before a subcommittee of the house appropriations committee, also in executive session, :o urge compliance with President Roosevelt's request for nn additional billion and a half to finance relief in the 1037 fiscal year. Various committee members at once demanded that Mr. Hopkins tell what lad been done with the $4,800,000,000 granted last year. He wns said to have promised to do his best to satisfy them, but Chairman J. P.' Buchanan warned the minority members that "this is not to be made Into an investigation." The committee extracted from Mr. Hopkins a reluctant promise that relief funds will not be spent lierenfter on projects not approved by congress, these Including especially the Florida ship canal nnd the Fusamuquoddy tidal power experiment. Hagood Given Command of Chicago Area rpOLLOWING a conference wltli r Maj. Gen. Johnson Hagood, who was removed from command of the Eighth corps area for criticizing WPA methods, President Roosevelt took the soldier back Into his good graces and appointed him to the command of the Sixth corps area with headquarters In Chicago. He will replace Maj. Gen. Frank McCoy and the assignment takes effect May 2. General McCoy is transferred to the Second corps area at New York to succeed Maj. Gep. Dennis K Nolan, who is retiring. Calles Is Expelled by Mexican Government DLUTARCO ELIAS CALLES, for- 1 mer president of Mexico and for long the most powerful figure in that republic, was forcibly exiled to the United States, together with three other once prominent citizens, by the Mexican government, which declared their presence there was dangerous to the welfare of the country. Summarily ousted with Calles, who for 11 years ruled Mexico with an Iron hand, were Luis Morones, former minister of labor and leader of the regional confederation of workers and peasants; Luis de Leon, former minister of the Interior and agriculture; and Rafael Melchor Ortega, former governor of Guanajuato. The four men were, by order of President Cardenas, placed aboard a plane at Mexico City and taken across the border to Brownsville, Texas. From there they took another plane to California. Spanish Parliament Ousts President Zamora S OMETHING new In Spanish his tory took place In Madrid. The parliament, by a vote of 238 to 5 ousted Nlceto Alcala Zamora from the office of president of the republic. This action, accomplished by a coalition of Socialists, Communists, Left Republicans and ten minor groups, was taken on a Socialist motion that the president had acted Illegally In dissolving the last parliament before the elections and that therefore he should be expelled from office. Back of this motion, however, lay radical sentiment that Zamora, in using his power ac cording to personal whim, has hampered the progress of the "repub Ilcan revolution." Diego Martinez Barrio, speaker of parliament, was made temporary president to serve until elections are held. Black's Lobby Committee Wins Court Decision CENATOR BLACK'S lobby com^ mlttee won a considerable victory In the District of Columbia Supreme court when Chief Justice Wheat refused to enjoin the committee from using the telegrams from and to William R. Hearst which had been seized. The judge held that the court had no juris diction over the committee, and said he could not see that the freedom of the press was in Senator Black any way Involved. Said his honor: "I have not been informed yet of any case in which any court has assumed to dictate to a committee of the senate what it should do and what it should not do, and I do not feel that I have any right to inaugurate any such principle as that." Elisha Hanson, counsel for Mr. Hearst, announced that he would appeal from the decision, and it was certain that the case would ultimately be taken before the United States Supreme court. Continuing its Investigation, the Black committee heard the testimony of Fred G. Clark of New York, national commander of the Crusaders. Mr. Clark denied that the organization had ever engaged in lobbying, and declared that it had assailed the methods of lobbyists in a national radio broadcast. Tangle of Diplomatic Rivalries in Europe M USSOLINI'S African adventure and Hitler's Rhineland doings and future intentions, tangled together, have created a situation that seemed to Imperil the formal friendship between Great Britain and France. The British were insisting that Italy be curbed, that her use of poison gas in Ethiopia be taken up by the League of Nations and that peace negotiations between Italy and Ethiopia be opened quickly to forestall any attempt by Premier Mussolini to sign a settlement which might rise from ruins of Halle Selassie's Ethiopian empire. Foreign Secreia^-y Eden Indicated the British were deic'-mined to make peace progress "before -re leave Geneva," Britain reserving Its decision as to what to do next if this conciliation effort failed. The conciliation committee of the league was making little or no progress, and In Rome Mussolini told his cabinet that Ethiopia's armies should and 'would be "totally annihilated." His own forces, meanwhile, were moving rapidly toward Dessye and Addis Ababa. France was reverting to her former policy of letting Italy go ahead with Its African conquest, devoting her attention mainly to Germany and central Europe. The British continued to treat nil that in a conciliatory way, which disgusted the French. League of American Nations Propos:d TN THEIR formal acceptances of 1 the invitations of the United States government to the forthcoming IntoT-Amorlcim peace conference, three of tho Latin American nations have proposed that n league of American nations be formed to preserve peace In the western hemisphere. The suggestion comes from Presidents Alfonso Lopez of Colombia, Jorge Ubico of Guatemala and Rafael Trujillo of ithe Dominican Republic. They believe the proposed league would be not only a means of preventing war in the New World but also would be an effective adjunct to organizations working to preserve peace In nil the world. National Topics Interpreted by William Bruckart Nitlonal Press Building Washington, D, C. Japanese Arrest Five Mongolian Officials H EADQUAKTRKS of the Jnp- aneso nrmy In Manchukiio announced tlint five Mongolian officials high In the service of the Man- chnkunn government had been arrested on the charge, of being secret agents of Soviet Hussla and would he court-martialed. One of them Is Lin Sheng, governor of Northern Uslngim province. It was assorted that the officials were accused of conniving with the Russian government and of supplying to Russia and Outer Mongolia military information which was used advantageously by both of MancbuUuo's neighbors Jn recent frontier clashes. Washington.—It has been several months since the administration -. farm relief pro- Memory grnrt)i the n ,, r | Cll |. Lingers On tural adjustment net, wns declared dead, but like the words of the son--', "the memory lingers on." And It is quite apparent that mistakes as well as memories of the AAA will continue through the heat of thn coming Presidential campaign and probably considerably longer, for it is only necessary to recall that the stepbrother of the AAA, the federal farm board of the Hoover administration, still is the butt of much criticism and many pointed paragraphs. One of the main reasons why tin-; memories linger on, where tlmse memories involve AAA, is Michigan's Republican Senator Arthur 11. Vandenberg. Senator Vanderibei-g never did get enthusiastic about the merits of AAA as they were expounded by Secretary Wallace, Administrator Chester Davis nnd other New Deal spokesmen, and when the Supreme court of the United States threw out the processing taxes upon which the law was predicated, Senator Vandenberg was in a delightful spot from a political standpoint. He bas not found It necessary to say "I told you so" and has had, I imagine, a great deal of personal fun in simply hinting to or reminding others of his previous stand. But it was not until the Michigan senator began pulling figures out of his senatorial hat, showing how benefit payments from the AAA had gone to great and wealthy corporations In sums as high as n million dollars or more, that he held a key :o the New Deal skeleton closet. They know now, however, exactly what he meant' when he announced n the b'enate several weeks ago that no such plan as the AAA could be administered without vast sums be- ng distributed [n what he termed unwarranted payments—unwarranted from the standpoint of help for the smaller farmers. Secretary Wallace stalled off Senator Vandenberg's demand in he senate for a complete list of )eueticiaries who received checks from AAA in excess of one thousand dollars for quite n while, but ;here were too many senators who >elieved as Senator Vandenberg did, :hat the truth ought to be known. Of course, as the procedure usually' ;oes in Washington, many things are done without actual force being used. It was 'thus in the case of he AAA payments. Democratic senators who foresaw their inability to )i-event a senate vote demanding a 1st of AAA payments persuaded Mr. Wallace to make public the list voluntarily and It was done just in advance of senate action. So, we now lave for the first time, at least, nn ndication of the grotesque results of the agricultural adustment administration program that wns hailed rom the Atlantic to the Pacific as ai. Ideal plan. * * * The dynani'te In the situation lies in the fact that there were doz- . ens, t v e n nun- Dynamite drcdSi of co ,. p ora- in It 'ions which received AAA chocks among the big bounties paid to Induce curtailment of bosic forage crops. This would not be so bad except for the fact that the brilliant planners of the AAA continuously stressed its value to the small, debt ridden farmers. Throughout the time the law wns under consideration nnd through the two years of Its operation, never did Mr. Wallace or Mr. Davis fail to point out In their numerous speeches how great sums of money, collected In process- Ing taxes, were being distributed to thousands of farmers and that those payments were In time going to put agriculture on Its collective feet. Now, however, ,the truth of their statement has been proved, bur when the whole truth has been exposed on the lloor of the senate. it was found to go far beyond the sijiull, debt ridden farmers. The whole truth disclosed, In fact, that several million dollars had been paid even to corporations chartered by the British government and with home ottlces In England. Wall Street, that home of "entrenched greed," received its share, and its share wns substantial. On top of all of this there lately has come a disclosure that a great wheat farmer in Montana received something like .$50,OUU for agreeing not to plant wheat on land which he had rented from the Indians through the Federal Department of the Interior for the specific purpose of raising wheat./ The list of huge benefit payments Is much too large to Include In this letter, but the fact remains that it showed how even the best laid plans of mice and men aft go astray, even when those men are brilliant brain trusters who themselves claim to know all there Is available for human understanding. Reyond that, the Vandenberg disclosures have sei in motion discussion that will come pretty close to continuing Into every farmhouse In the land. Unless I njiss my guess, and I am no Doctor Tugwell, thousands, of farmers are going to bitterly resent the fact that their payments were small, whereas gigantic corporations received sums ranging from ten to a thousand times as large. Uiffair Criticism In behalf of the AAA officials, it must be said that there will be as, inrleed there has been already, considerable unfair criticism. The criticism to which I refer Is of this type; th.it they should have discovered in advance of the payments that funds were going to these corporations. Assuming that they could have discovered that fact In advance, there was no alternative for them except to pay the checks authorized by law. Congress made the law, or rather, congress passed It under the lash of the administration, but It was on the statute books and administrative officials are not supposed to disregard such provisions. If there Is to be criticism It should be directed at the Initial framing of the statute that brought about the condition. The results that have attracted so much attention since Senator Vandenberg's exposure constitute one of the curious coincidences and queer quirks of planned economy. And a further word about the criticism. A great many people are likely to forget that while their check was in three figures nnd some corporation received one In six figures, the condition results wholly from the fact that one owned more land than the other. You may properly say this should have been foreseen and I believe you will be making a correct statement. But surely this is a fact: the AAA officials cannot be blamed for sending out the checks when the law said they should do It regardless of the name or nature of the beneficiary. The fault lies solely and completely with those who, from their professional desks, conceived the whole scheme and gained President Roosevelt's approval of it. •"»* hr ONLY 10* CLABBER GIRi A Place in the Sun No man can make for place in the sun If he is PI seeking Stop PAINFUL: PRESSU...

For one disclosures have foil- off proposals of that may result as well in the new proposition crop control through the medium of soil conservation.
