BARKLEY of Kentucky, who was temporary chairman of the Democratic national convention in 1932 and as such delivered the keynote speech, will serve in the same capacity at t h e Philadelphia convention In June, outlining the issues of this year's campaign as his party views them. Senator Joseph T. Robinson of Arkansas will be the Sen. Barkley perm anent chairman again. Yet another repeater will be former Judge John E. Mack of New York. Four years ago he placed Franklin D. Roosevelt in nomination, and he will do it again in June. These selections were made by the committee on arrangements. Other officers of the convention chosen are: Lee Barnes of Alabama, chief doorkeeper; Mrs. J. Borden Harriman, national commlt- teewoman of the District of Columbia, hostess of the convention, with Mrs. Agnes Collins Dunn of New Hampshire as assistant; Col. Edward C. Halsey, secretary of the senate, sergeant at arms; Representative Clarence Cannon of Missouri, parliamentarian, assisted by Representative John J. O'Connor of New York; W. Forbes Morgan, secretary of the convention. National Chairman Farley said that the two-thirds rule, which has prevailed in Democratic conventions for a century, will not be abolished. The rules committee will be headed by Senator Bennett Clark of Missouri and it will report for abrogation of the two-thirds rule as well as elimination of the unit rule. The latter binds the state delegations to abide by the decision of a majority of the delegation. According to Mr. Farley, these changes will not prevent the practically unanimous nomination of President Roosevelt. Present plans are to have Mr. Roosevelt go to Philadelphia on Saturday, June 27, to close the convention by accepting the nomination In a speech delivered either In the Municipal stadium or in the University of Pennsylvania stadium close to the convention hall. of the President's budget-balancing program. It was added that the deficit could be acted on "more intelligently" next session. Roosevelt Addresses National Democratic Club PRESIDENT ROOSEVELT made * what might be considered the first of his campaign speeches before the National Democratic club in New York city. Tammany was there in full force, but such disgruntled Democrats as Al Smith and John J. Raskob were conspicuous by Stick to Your Bargain When you must choose the lesser of two evils, choose and don't scold about it. their absence. Mr. Roosevelt declared his purpose to bring more food, higher prices and better homes for the people. "If you Increase buying power," he said, "prices will go up; more goods will be sold. Wages ought to and must go up with prices. .This does not mean unsound inflation or skyrocketing prices; this should be avoided Just as we seek to avoid bankruptcy sale values." Turning to his critics with sarcasm, the President said "some Individuals are never satisfied," Referring to charges of extravagance and mounting deficits, he said people complain to him about "the current costs of rebuilding America, about the burden on future America." He insisted that the measure should not be the three-billion-dollar deficit of this year but the assertion that the national Income has risen from thirty-five billions In 1932 to sixty-five billions In 193C. Green Urges Unions to Remain Nonpartisan W ILLIAM GREEN, president of the American Federation of Labor, has sent a letter to all affiliated unions urging that they adhere to the federation's "traditional nonpartlsan political policy." He says: "For obvious reasons, labor should avoid division even In the pursuit of Its political policies. Such division can be avoided If working men and women, loyal to the American Federation of Labor, will refrain from Identifying themselves with any political movement designed to serve as a substitute for the nonpartisan policy of the American Federation of Labor." Some time ago George L. Berry asked all unions to Join "Labor's Nonpartlsan league," the object of which, he said, was "to put American Federation of Labor unions on record for President Roosevelt." Von Starhemberg of Austria ,Voices His Defiance C IVIL war in Austria became a possibility as the quarrel between the Fascists led by Prince Ernst von Starhemberg and the clerical and monarchist elements became acute. Government officials, however, were try- Ing desperately to patch tip the trouble. Prince Von Star- hemberg, who is vice chancellor, In a defiant speech at Horn warned his political opponents that his helmwehr, or home guard, would be dissolved "only over my dead body." Chancellor Kurt Schuschnlgg, speaking at Baden, retorted that "Austria is not Italy and Austrlans are not Fascists." Von Starhemberg asserted that if Internal foes press too hard there will be a "repetition of 1934"— when the heimwehr triumphed in a short but bloody civil war against Socialists. False' friends surround Schuschnigg, Von Starhemberg said, and the heimwehr plans to protect him from them. The vice chancellor directed a thinly veiled reproof at monarchists, who are too "democratic" to suit him. "Democracy In Austria Is high treason," said he. • For Austria, said Starhemberg, there are three possibilities—a continuation of the authority of the state, Nazilsm, or Communism. He asserted the heimwehr Is determined to preserve the Fascist system and would continue as a separate organization but that other private armies would be absorbed by the regular army. Navy in Six-Week Drill on the Pacific O NE hundred and fifty vessels of the United States fleet, with 450 airplanes, are now engaged In the year's grand maneuvers in thej Pacific. War conditions prevail and: the vessels and their crews are be-' Ing given a severe test of their fitness that will last for six weeks. The Panama canal region was the first objective of the fleet. The units are divided Into attacking and defending forces and something is doing all the time, 'lay and night. The naval officers are trying to solve the seventeenth of a series of stratelgc problems, each based upon some possible international sltuatiota, mapped out by naval strategists. Steiwer to Be Key-Noter for the Republicans W HEN the Republicans gather In . national convention at Cleveland next June their keynote their Presidential campaign will be sounded by Frederick Steiwer, the eloquent and handsome United States senator from Oregon.

Observers held that the main motive in picking Steiwer was a desire of the party leaders to give the convention a western atmosphere right at the start, with an especial eye to agriculture. The senator has been actively. Identified with wheat growing and his home town, Portland, Is a center of the northwest battleground of the November elections. His colleague Is Senator Charles L. McNary, one of the authors of the old McNary-Haugen'ag- riculture bill and by many regarded as a possible dark horse in the Presidential nomination race. Congressman Bertrand Snell of New York, minority leader In the house, was selected to be permanent chairman of the convention. Secret Panama Treaty Is Cause of Concern A RMY and navy officials were reported to be concerned over a new treaty with Panama which Is being secretly .Considered by the government. It was said an uncorrected text of the pact showed It provides for >'Jolnt conversations" rather than for defense of the Canal Zone in event of aggression. The grant by Panama for the "use, occupation, and control of lands and waters outside the jurisdiction of the United States," if necessary, Is renounced by this country In the treaty. Chairman PIttman of the senate foreign relations committee said closed hearings on the treaty soon would be completed, after which the senate might consider the document in secret session in order to avoid international complications. Senator Hiram Johnson has said he will try to have the text of the pact made public before It is taken up by the senate.

The Republican minority of the committee Issued a report which stated that the proposed tax law was "unsound In principle, will undermine business stability, IB another step toward regimentation of all business, and Is not designed to raise revenue but admittedly Is another New Deal experiment." Conservative Democrats Joined with the Republicans In this attack against the bill, but tbe administration leaders were confident the measure would pass before May 1. Complete revision of the corporation tax system Is the main objective of the bill. It levies a graduated tax on corporation income, based on percentage of earnings withheld from distribution to stockholders In the form of dividends. The majority report asserted the measure would raise about $803,- QQftOpQ the first year, but admitted that over a three-year period revenue would fall $334.000.000 short Advance o. T the Italians in Ethiopia Continues I TALY'S victorious troops in northern Ethiopia continued their advance on Addis Ababa, though It was somewhat retarded by the efforts of the natives to blow up the roadways and otherwise harass the Invaders. The Italian motorized column in this movement Is the most formidable yet formed in this war and is notable for the large number of white troops Included. General Grasslana's southern army, meawhlle, was driving toward Harar,'second city of the empire, In three columns. The Ethiopians were putting up stiff resistance at various points but everywhere were driven back, according to Italian dispatches. Officials at Addis Ababa were still confident of success in saving the capital and were reorganizing their forces there and sending fresh troops to the front. The general opinion there was that the Italian army could be held off If It tries to come In from Dessye, by small detachments concealed in mountain caves with only a few grenades and machine guns. Therefore, It was asserted by Ethiopians, the Italians are likely to attack the railroad running to French Somallland before attempting to advance Jo the capital. Supreme Court Decision in Stock Yards Case T TPHOLDING a reduction of rates ** and charges at the St. Joseph (Mo.) stockyards, the Supreme court held that the findings made by Secretary of Agriculture Henry A. Wallace Justified the rates be set and that the stockyards operators had failed to show confiscation. Justices. Louis P. Brandels, Bar- Ian F. Stone and Benjamin Cordozo agreed that the rates should be upheld, but in an opinion by Justice Brandels expressed belief that the court went too far In passing on tbe fairness of the rate*. Rescue of Entombed Men Is Epic of Heroism T HAT old gold mine at Moose River, Nova Scotia, provided an epic tale of unselfish and heroic human endeavor that will be told for many a year. For ten days more than a hundred experienced miners strove unceasingly to rescue three men who had been trapped by the fall pf dirt and rocks In the 140-foot level of the abandoned- mine they were Inspecting. Machinery and other equipment were brought from far away. A diamond drill was driven through and through this small opening, communication was established and food was dropped down, but already one of the three was dead of hunger and exhaustion. Finally the desperate efforts of the rescuers were successful and the two survivors were brought safely to the surface, together with the body of the dead man. Those saved were Dr. D. E. Robertston, famous and beloved surgeon of Toronto, and C. A. Scadding. The one who did not live was Herman Maglll, also of Torbnto. Two Well-Known Writers Taken by Death BATH came to two of America's well-known writers. One was Flnley Peter Dunne, creator of "Mr. Dooley," the genial satirist of modern life whose witty sayings delighted two generations. The second was Percy Hammond, veteran dramatic critic of the, New York Herald Tribune, one of the foremost of the country's commentators on matters Washington.—One swallow does not make a summer nor does one statement, even though from a high official, make a condition, absolute. But one state- Relief ment from a high Problem official under the present New Deal relief setup comes rather close to disclosing the transcendent Importance of the nation's relief problem In American economy at this time. I refer to the recent testimony by Harry A. Hopkins, Works Progress Administrator and professional reliever, before the house committee on appropriations. He told that group a few days ago that 3,853,000 heads of families or unattached persons were receiving a livelihood for themselves and their families from the federal government on March first of this year. If this be true, and it can hardly be disproved, there are nearly fifteen million persons dependent entirely upon Federal assistance. And the condition appears even worse when It is shown that about ten million others are receiving assistance from state, county and city relief or charitable organizations. In short, the Hokpins testimony reveals that about 20 per cent of all of our people are living on relief money. These figures are astounding. They are made the more amazing when one considers that the condition exists even after the New Deal has expended approximately twenty-one billions In its three years of government management, the bulk of the outgo being directly chargeable to what Mr. Roosevelt has consistently maintained was an emergency. I have reported to you Intermittently heretofore the various stages through which Reliever Hopkins has gone in search for means to solve the relief problem. I have been among those observers here who have felt that even though Mr. Hopkins lacks practical experience In commercial life and even though he casts aside every consideratlor except those Inherent In the mind of a man who has devoted his life professionally to relief work, that he should be given time to solve the problem, it seems to me, however, that he has had ample; time to find the answer if he is going to provide a solution.,- Neither he nor President Roosevelt has given anj Indication yet that they know the answer or even have a clew to it The net result ''of their efforts to date has been/the expenditure o money In unprecedented amounts and the piling up of a debt, the like of which this country nevei has known. Mr. Hopkins has gone about his Job smugly and with that apparen complacency that characterizes the official who Is convinced that he alone is equipped to do a partlcu lar Job. By his attitude, he ha created in congress a feeling tha he thinks he is a superior being and if anything makes a congress man hot under the collar, It Is t see a member of the executiv branch exhibit a pose that the con gressmen ore dumbbells. Some o them are, of course, but that Is no true of all and it is fast doing Mr Hopkins no good at all to show ar rogance toward the men who g out and campaign directly for th votes of the people." I said that the relief problem was of transcendent Importance 1 _.. . governmental af Visionary f a \ Ta at this time Policy This Is true because I bellev D theatrical. Both New York city. passed away In Contreras;Is Elected President iof Venezuela the conviction is growing that th whole New Deal policy on relief 1 Impractical and visionary; that I Is founded upon a wrong psycho ogy ; that It is creating in this na tion the greatest mass of panhand lers and "the world owes me a llv ing" type or class of Individual that has ever existed anywhere an that, In addition the men who ar doing the Job for the federal gov ernment lack the ability to under stand Its whole significance. As proof of the observations have Just stated, let me point ou how the demands for vast expend tures of money and wholesal methods of relief for the destltut have subsided in congress. Tim was when a half dozen so-ealle welfare workers, college professor or organization leaders could get hearing by the simple crook of finger before a congressional com mlttee. Such men as Senator La Follette of Wisconsin, and Senate Costlgan of Colorado, and the lat Senator Cutting of New Mexico t mention only a few, would w'ee salty tears In senate speeches- the would call for ten billions for thl and five billions for that and othe billions for other things and shou le1 Were 8tarvln S In plenty. And they' wer of beorles were all wet, because Mr. lopklns certainly has disproved he value of their plans. Another Indication of how con- ress feels Is the movement to divide the billion and a half relief und, which President Roosevelt sked, between Mr. Hopkins and •ubllc Works Administrator Ickes. The President demanded that con- press give the whole fund to Mr. lopklns. It probably will work out hat way eventually but the feeling gainst Mr. Hopkins cannot be denied. It Is violent and only a small art of It has come to the surface. The congressmen could not afford o see the flow of money cut off In an election year so they maneuvered o spank Mr, Hopkins by seeking to give a portion of the money to Mr. ekes. Now, It is currently rumored that Mr. Ickes, who never has liked Mr. Jopklns, has done some lobbying In he fine underground manner of which he is capable. He sincerely believes that the use of funds in the construction of permanent things ike buildings, roads and bridges gives the government and taxpayers at least something for their money. But, be that as it may, the ground swell against Mr. Hopkins is very powerful and if Mr. Hop- tins possessed any understanding of the science of the times he would see it. Thus far he has given no Indication that he understands what It means. • • • Where will it all end? The answer to this relief problem is not now What's near enough to the Answer? h *™ r * a 8 uess Let us go back for a brief review. When President Roosevelt took hold of the relief problem early in his administration, he advanced two theories. They were to solve our problems and solve them quickly. He urged the NRA and the PWA, which with the AAA, formed the first battalion of the alphabetical army. The NRA was designed to regiment business and Indirectly force re-employment by the shortening of hours and the spread of work. The PWA was to provide a lot of construction Jobs immediately, giving work to those not absorbed in private commerce and Industry and thus take up the slack until buying power of individuals had been restored. By November, 1933, it became quite evident to unbiased observers that NRA and PWA were falling short of the mark. So, out of the Presidential hat came the CWA. Congress promptly provided funds so the Civil Works administration— and here Is where professional reliever, Mr. Hopkins, came on the scene—could hire such unemployed as had not been absorbed by PWA or had not been restored to Jobs In commerce and industry by NRA. It was not long until CWA was as much in disrepute as the original schemes for providing employment. I believe it was In even greater disrepute because ordinary citizens could see the utter waste and the reckless expenditures of money occurring under CWA for Its relief raking and stone gathering and other nonsensical Job-creating results. CWA went the way of any unsound proposition. Forward then came FERA. It was a proposition of emergency relief. Washington writers were deluged with speeches and statements that none should be allowed to starve. The spigots of the treasury were opened wide and $4,880,000,000 gushed forth. In every section of the country, federal money was distributed and distributors In Washington were none too careful of how they passed it out. In parallel lines with FERA, the politicians formed to the right. They saw the money and from precinct to pinnacle of politics, they were on the Job and they have been on the Job ever since. E LEAZAR LOPEZ CONTRERAS, an army (ifflcer who rose to the rank of genera) under the late dictator, Juan Vlncepte Gomez, Is DOW president of Venezuela. The national congress elected htm to that office by a vote of 132 to 1. ™. midst the shouting and the tumult raise by these political saviors did no provide a solution for the problem I have a hunch that the silenc ^T'.^ 88 ^ through that we offonn were off on the wrong foot. » cannot help but realize that ! Too Much Waste Last year the President became convinced that there was too much waste ; that FERA was building up a clientele of mlU lions who were saying, both publicly and privately, that it was no use to work when the government would feed them und he ordered a quick change In course. With this change In course came a locking of horns between Messrs. f?°J* ln » and Mces. Mr. Ickes was Heked by the simple expedient of a new federal agency.
