LENOX TIME TABLE, LENOX IOWA By Edward W. Pickard © Wgfmi Neutfaf" Union Italy Is Ruthless and the League Helpless /^VCCUPATION of Addis Almbn ^-' and nil of Ethiopia was the price demanded by Unly for nn armistice In East Afrlcn when the council of the League of Nations met again In Genevn. Baron Pompeo Alois! presented the ultimatum on behalf of Dictator Mussolini. Woldo Mariam, represent Ing Ethiopia, coun tered with n request that the league Invoke all penalties against Italy under article 10 of the covenant, these including military sanctions as well as the economic penalties which the league has been trying to enforce. Baron Aloisl military budget to ?3S,000,000 and created a special fund of $20,000,000 for the development of aviation. Hungary is clamoring for revision of the Trianon treaty and recovery of the territory It lost to the little entente. The forty-seventh birthday of Relchsfuehrer Adolf Hitler provided an opportunity for a big display of Germany's military power. As the dictator stood on a balcony overlooking the Wllhelmstrasse In Berlin nearly 15,000 soldiers of all arms, with motorized vehicles, passed before him, shouting renewal of their pledges of faith In Hitler. In many other cities of the reich there were like demonstrations. British Budget Highest Since That of 1931 The British and French delegates explained the stand of their respective governments in the embroglio. The league was helpless, and having received the discouraging report of the conciliation committee, was compelled to confess it could not find means to attain peace. France will not consent to the imposition of military sanctions, and Great Britain naturally will not undertake to enforce them by herself. It appeared the poor Ethiopians were to be abandoned to their fate, mean- Ing the extinction of their empire and their exploitation by Italy. The council adopted a resolution regretting its inability to end the war, reminding league members that they should continue the sanctions and asking Italy to be generous in bringing the conflict to a close. Anthony Eden in his address to the council warned France that she might expect from Great Britain no further support against aggression by Germany than France had given against Italy. From the north, south and west the Italian armies were advancing on Addis Ababa, and the panic stricken civilian inhabitants of the capital were fleeing from the city. Foreigners sought shelter in the bomb-proofed British legation. The mayor Issued all the arms available and the government called on all able bodied men to make a last stand for liberty, saying "It Is better to die than to be enslaved." Terrible Famine in Once Fertile China Province TAISPATCIIES from Chengtu, • L ' China, tell a terrible story of the famine and drouth In Szechuen province, once one of the most fertile regions in the country. It is said to be the worst famine in the history of China, the deaths numbering many thousands and fully 30,000,000 persons being in distress. Suicides and "mercy slayings" are everyday incidents. The peasants are reduced to eating dogs, cats, rats and clay. Officials said the situation primarily was a result of Communist incursions during the last two years In which the reds overran and pillaged the land. Turkey Remilitarizes Dardanelles Zone A XOTHER post-war treaty has •* x gone flooey. President Kemal Ataturk of Turkey and his cabinet decided that the Dardanelles must be remilitarized, despite theLusanne pact, and Turkish troops were promptly moved Into the zone along the 75- mile long strait that connects the Sea of Marmora and the Aegean sea. It Is believed Kemal will soon rebuild the fortifications In the scone which the allies failed to capture during the World war. The Turkish dictator didn't surprise anyone by his action, for he asked permission of the League of Nations, some time ago to rearm the Dardanelles. No formal reply had been made, but the British government rather favored giving consent, and the Soviet union openly approves Turkey's move. Italy was displeased, and there was considerable excitement in the Balkan states, especially Bulgaria which borders on European Turkey. The Bulgarians renewed their demand for a corridor giving them a direct route to the Aegean sea. Probably Keuml's action will not be severely condemned by anyone, for most of the European nations are preparing for war with feverish baste. Austria's army, small but well equipped, held a spring parade in Vienna, and immediately the nations of the little entente displayed their anger at this show of military, force and their military attaches in the Austrian capital were ordered •not, to occupy the places reserved for them among the reviewing officials, Rumania has Increased its President Kemal XTRVILLE CHAMBERLAIN, chan- •^ cellor of the exchequer, submitted to the British cabinet and later to parliament the annual budget, which is for almost four billion dollars, the highest since 1031. The huge rearmament program and other unusual expenses made It certain there will be no relief from present taxation bii'rdens. No estimate has yet been presented to parliament of the amount to be spent In 1936 on strengthening the fighting forces. All that is known Is that the air force's part of the program will cost about $50,000,000 thIS year. Requirements of the army and navy may bring the aggregate for 1036 up to .$110,000,000. Judge Ritter Is Found Guilty by Senate F EDERAL JUDGE IIALSTED L. RITTER of Florida was found guilty on impeachment charges by the senate and removed from office, being the fourth federal jurist to be ousted In this manner. On each of the first six articles of impeachment a majority of senators voted for his acquittal; but on the seventh artl- nle, which was n generalized s u m- H L Ritter mar y of the charges against him, he was convicted by a vote of 50 to 28. An order declaring Ritter should be "forever disqualified from holding any oflice of honor, trust or profit under the United States" was defeated, 76 to 0. The senate's verdict in the twelfth impeachment case brought before It as a high court of Impeachment since foundation of the American republic amounted to a decision that Judge Ritter had violated the Constitutional requirements of good behavior in office. It carried no punishment other than automatic removal from the bench. Editors Condemn Seizure of Private Telegrams T) ESOLUTIONS condemning the **• blanket seizure of private communications were adopted by the American Society of Newspaper Editors In convention at Washington. "\Ve are of the conviction," said the resolution, "that If such practice Is not checked the threat to liberty of Individual action and particularly to the freedom of the press Is Immediate and menacing." The society urged its members to co-operate with nil law enforcement agencies by guarding against the premature publication of Information harmful to the successful completion of criminal Investigations. The editors also Inaugurated a formal study to determine if it is possible for the press and bar jointly to reacli some working formula to prevent sensational murder cases from becoming public scandals. President's Secretary and Adviser Taken by Death T GUIS McHKNRY HOWE, secre- • L ' tary to President Roosevelt and for many years his close friend and adviser, died In the Naval hospital at Washington after an Illness of more than a year. Mr. Howe was known In the capital as "the President maker," for it was largely dae to his efforts that Mr. Roosevelt reached the White House. For twenty-five years, from the day when Mr. Roosevelt and he first met In Albany, he had devoted himself to forwarding his friend's political fortunes. During the Chicago convention and the ensuing campaign his planning and his advice were credited largely with the results attained. Respighi, Noted Italian Composer, Is Dead O TTORINO RESPIGHI, one of the most famous of modern Italjan composer', died In Rome at the age of fifty-six of heart disease following blood.poisoning. His pass- Ing is cause for deep mourning among music lovers everywhere. Results of the Illinois Primary Election I I LLINOIS' primary held tlm center of political Interest, for It not only provided lively state battles but also was of considerable moment nationally. Col. Frank Knox, publisher of the Chicago Daily News, and Senator Borah of Idaho, who was born in Illinois, were the contestants for the Republican Presidential preferential vote, and the former came out with 31 delegates against 26 for Borah. The senator's friends were elated, because, without organization, he carried a large part of the state outside of Chicago. This preferential vote is purely advisory and neither man has a slate of delegates to the national conven- ton. The result makes it certain that Knox will make a respectable showing on the first roll call. It also adds to Borah's prestige and aids him in the coming Ohio primary. Gov. Henry Homer, seeking re- nomlnation, was victorious In the bitter fight with the regular Democratic organization and the Kelly- Washngton —«F - .. By WILLIAM BRUCKART Frank Knox Nash machine In Chicago, which had thrown him overboard and supported Bundesen for governor. The Democrats almost unanimously voted for the renomlnatlon of Senator James Hamilton Lewis, and the Republicans named former Senator Otis Glenn to oppose him In November. Republican leaders in Washington were encouraged to believe the internecine warfare in the Democratic ranks would help the Republicans carry the state. The Democratic sages, on the other hand, liked the showing of strength made by Borah, feeling his liberal following might switch to Roosevelt in November if the G. 0. P. puts up a conservative candidate. In Nebraska's primary only Borah's name was printed on the Republican preferential ballot, but about one-sixth of the voters wrote In the name of Gov. Alf Landon of Kansas. For the Democratic preference President Roosevelt was unopposed in both Illinois and Nebraska. PWA Power Loan Suit Goes to the Supreme Court A SKING that the Supreme court ** review the lower court decision In the celebrated Buzzard Roost case, the Duke Power company and the Southern Public Utilities company carried up to the highest tribunal the question of whether the Public Works administration may finance publicly owned and operated hydro-electric plants to compete with private enterprise. Unless extraordinary measures are taken to speed the cases, arguments cannot be heard until the term beginning next October. The government has 80 days in which to reply to the petition for review. This case, which deeply concerns the New Deal program, arose when the PWA allocated $2,852,000 for construction by Greenwood county, South Carolina, of the Buzzard Roost plant on the Saluda river. Sam B. Hill Draft of New Tax Bill Ready for Consideration H AVING discarded the President's suggestion of temporary processing taxes, Chairman Sam B. Hill's house subcommittee completed its draft of the new tax bill. It calls for a new type uf corporation levy, ranging from 1 per cent to 29.7 per cent for corporations with net Incomes up to ,$10,000, and from 4 to 42^ per cent for corporations with net income over $10,000, depending on thp amount of earnings that are not distributed. Preferential fax treatment Is given to banks and Insurance companies, to debt - ridden companies, to companies In receivership, and a new system of taxing non-resident aliens Is created. Big Pay for Lobby Committee Lawyer Is Refused B Y A vote of 153 to 137 the house rejected a resolution to permit Senator Black's lobby committee to pay $10,000 to special counsel In injunction litigation started by William Randolph Hearst to protect his telegrams from the probers. This action, which followed a bitter debate, doesn't halt the work of the committee, which has Its own funds, but it prevents the payment of more than $3,600 a year, in accordance with general law, to Crampton Harris of Birmingham, Ala., former law partner of Chairman Black. The lobby committee In a recent session brought out the fact that some wealthy men who are backers of the American Liberty league also have contributed to the Southern Committee to Uphold the Constitution, though what this has to do with lobbying was not quite clear. The Southern committee, which is headed by John Henry KJr- by of Houston, Texas, Is opposed to some of the New Deal doings- Washington.—I suggested in thesi columns a year or more ago tha _ . , the campaign 01 Break in 1930 would bring Party Lines fortu some °f the mostamazlngodd Ities in political alignments thn this country had ever known. I was apparent, even during the bat tie for ballots In 1032, that a gl gantlc shake-up in the voting align ment of citizens was in the making These things are now being demon strated and more proof of the changing times seems just around the corner. We all have seen how such outstanding figures as former Gov. Alfred B. Smith of New York, the Democratic Presidential nominee in 1928, have boldly flouted President Roosevelc and his New Deal theories and we have witnessed such vitriolic outbursts as those by former Senator James A. Reed, that old- line Missouri Democrat, and we have watched with Interest the hauling and filling by Jeffersonlan Democrats who find New Deal fantasies to be a bitter pill to swallow. Lately, there has come another most Interesting situation respecting partisan alignment Although the action received much less attention than I believe it deserves, the determination of the Virginia Republicans in their recent convention at Roanoke to refrain from placing a Republican candidate in the field against Senator Carter Glass constitutes, to my mind, one of the most extraordinary twists ever to take place under our two party system. That convention, acting utterly without precedent, took the position that it was better to leave the field clear for the election of the veteran senator than to precipitate a political battle by naming a Republican candidate. The reason for the action of the Virginia Republicans is quite clear in one way. They felt that Carter Glass, although a life-long Democrat who has carried on his share of bombardment of Republican principles and policies, could do the country more good from their standpoint than could be attained by placing a Republican candidate against him without chance of success. To state this premise in another way: Carter Glass does not swallow the New Deal as a.-whole and when he finds objectionable features in the Roosevelt program, he is Independent enough and has the strength of character to voice his feelings. Doing this as a member of the majority party in the senate necessarily has more weight than all of the criticism of the New Deal that could be voiced by a Republican—if one could be elected in Virginia—and the Virginia convention chose a course which it believed would best serve the nation as a whole. But it is the circumstance of a party convention refusing to engage in battle that interests me most. Under such' circumstances, the old idea of party loyalty becomes not only Illogical but ridiculous. Instead of a call to battle, we see what amounts to a call for support of a theoretical opponent. Of course, in the opinion of many, Carter Glass is the outstanding exponent of conservative thought in the Democratic party and If he speaks for conservative thought in the Democratic party he Is almost speaking for conservative thought in the Republican party. It is easy to see, therefore, why the Virginia Republicans adopted the course they did hut where does that leave party loyalty? What does It mean as to the future alignment of political thought? partisans that they have been unable to determine yet what their course ought to be. One of them remarked confidentially to me that he believed he would have to consult a clairvoyant before he could say whether he .was going to support the New Deal or oppose it or try to straddle the fence. Of course, his remark was in a humorous vein but it epitomized the thought and, I may say, the worry of a very great many partisans at this time. So, we have a picture six months ahead of the actual casting of the ballots in which party lines are torn asunder for countless hundreds of more or less important party figures. I think everyone agrees that the condition comes from the development of New Deal principles and policies under the President Roosevelt. leadership of There will be many who are now doubtful as to their course who will realign themselves with the New Deal because they were originally Democrats and there will be many who will again follow the Republican banner down the stretch. But it seems to me that three years of Roosevelt probably have established a greater segment of independent voting strength in thir country than had resulted from a quarter of a century of partisan politics before. The situation must be Construed then as indicating that hereafter those who stick definitely In party harnesa will continue to stand hitched because they have political aspirations and ambitions or because economic conditions in their communities are better fostered by the party with which they have aligned themselves. * * * At last, after almost two years of promotion work, President Roose- BRISBANE THIS WEEK 18 and 65 « No Perfect Crime A Heavenly 400 Fighting Over Rivers President Roosevelt In another "opening speech of the 1936 campaign," addressing 20,000 Young D e m o- crats of Baltl more and th nation on the radio, suggest ed that youth should begin work at eight een and "old age" stop work at sixty-five. Youth should have its first 18 years, at least, for exercise, study, h a p p !• ness. Sixty-five might be a good age to stop dull routine work for wages, but no man would want to stop real work until death, except that six months to look around ihls side of the grave might be acceptable.

Senator Johnson and Senator Norrls have not been regarded as regular Republicans but they have been Hying the Republican banner for a good many years. Yet, the President verbally pats them on the hack and offers his blessing. During the same period, we have watched Sir. Roosevelt playing touch-and-go with the La Follettes in Wisconsin. Of course, the La Follettes catalogue themselves as Progressives but they never, have bad a great deal In common with old-line Democrats. Likewise, In the senate If one Is to believe gossip frequently bandied about. Senator :McNqry of Oregon, the titular Republican leader, has been only half-heartedly fighting the New Deal.

The Quoddy project designed to produce electric power In quantities never jefore turned out, was to cost $40,000,000. The great job of excavat- ng a slit across the face of the state of Florida to let ships go direct from the Atlantic to the Gulf without going around the toe of the state was to cost $150,000,000. Only a small amount, that Is, a small sum compared to other New Deal expenditures, had been wasted on the ship canal plans before It vas tossed into the llmbp of forgot- en things, but something like $10,100,000 already has been used in the attempt to make' the moon work hrough the medium of the tides of Quoddy bay.
