' Franco replied thai this is a matter which will be dealt with "when this is suitable to the interests of the nation" and that "it will have to be the Spaniards themselves who pronounce themselves in its favor. In short. I take it Spain isn'l pag Ing foreign nations for advice. ' I broached the matter by calling Franco's attention the fact that his , ambassador to Washington. JuJan Francisco De Cardenas, recently was quoted as saying that "Spain is steadily and progressively re- stroing a political situalion with more representative system." I asked if this had any relation to the current talk about a possible restoration of the monarchy. "Spain is a country of open and not closed constitution, "was Fran co's reply . , "For Spain, the perfections of it: institutions is constant and progres sive and every stage is effected a the moment when the best service of the nation requires it. withou Hope Star Stflf of Hope 1899; Press 1927, Consolidated January 18, 1929 Published every weekday afternoon by Stor Publishing Co., Inc.

And the act of Congress permitting the appointment of Mrs. Rosevelt to a job paying $12,000, in addition to her >ension of $5,000,' specifically states thai "no member of Ihe Senale or House of Represenlatives or officer of the United States who s designated a representative or allernale to the general assembly shall be entitled to receive such compensation" of $12,000 a year. The bill authorizing the $5,000 pension to Mrs. Roosevelt was in- Toduced by Representative John Jesinski, of Michigan, a Democrat, chairman of the committee on invalid pensions. It was referred to tiis commitlee and he presented a favorable reporl supporled by a letter from General Frank T.

Among the recipients of such $5,000 pensions are some widows who would seem to have been in no need. Mrs. Edith Boiling Wilson, the widow of Woodrow, is commonly understood to be wealthy in her own right and Mrs. Edith C. Roosevelt, the widow of Theodore, had not only an estate but prosperous sons who, in a pinch, could have maintained their mother as most sons, in case of need, feel a filial obligation to do, regarding Ihis duly as a privilege. Franklin D. Roosevelt's sons, also, could have made it unnecessary for the taxpayers to support their mother. A long roster of widows of presidents, beginning with Martha Washington, have received the franking privilege but Mrs. Eleanor Roosevelt is the first one to whom the grant amounts to more than a senli- mental gesture providing for the free carriage of a little personal mail. Mrs. F.leanor Roosevelt maintains a political and business office in New York and her Frank is aplicable to tons of Ihe political propaganda of the political action committee and the correspondence incidental to the commercial business of running a newspaper column and a magazine deparlment, Legilimale journalists in the same praclice pay such postages themselves.

In the tense dispute between iiissia and Iran, representatives if the Iwo eounlrics were cxpecl- 'd lo meet loday to seek a solu- ion of that controversy. Obstacles to the agreement on a secrelary-gencral mostly were vorked 'out al a five-power mcel- ng last nighl in Ihc hotel room of Ochvard R. Stettinius, Jr., chief U. K. delegate. Authoritative information was hat the United Stales suddenly gave up its advocacy of Lcstei f'earson, Canadian ambassador to Washington, and Stettinius formal- 1 v propused Lie as a compromise who might be acceptable to the Uniled States, Britain and Russia.

Thirly-eighl others of the approximately 1,500 workers in the hangar wore injured, none critically. Thc blaze, reportedly touched off yesterday by an explosion of cleaning fluid, caused damage officially assessed by army aulhorilies al $750,000. Only three of the dead had been identified at a late hour last nighl, and a painstaking check of personal effects was being made to identify the remaining bodies. Names of the victims, as released by the army, were: James M .Mangum, 44, Oklahoma Cily; Marvin A. Damn, 40, Oklahoma City; Murray W .Jackson, 41, Okla- uima Cily.

Delegates of the five key powers met privately last night and sought to resolve their differences over Ihe nomination of a secretary-general. Official sources said later that an "agreement within 24 hours is expected." United States and British delegates have favored Lester Pearson, Canadian ambassador to Washington, while the Russians have urged the selection of someone from eastern Europe. Under UNO procedural rules, the five big powcrs musl unite in nominating a candidate for Ihe general assembly's final approval. Norwegian Foreign Minister ''J?
