Cant Bestore Order Out of the first hectic session of he conference, which met at the president's invitation, came several concrete suggestions. Suggestion was by Roth that the "little fel- ows" have a permanent advisor; council similar to the business advisory council which represents larger interests. Another requested creation of a special government agency to handle small business oans. Even the decision to disband into groups failed, however, to restore order in the commerce department auditorium where the conference was held. In the midst of continued shouts for permission to make speeches, or motions, the main body of visitors was resolved into a committee for discussing miscel- aneous subjects. Most of the business men remained there at least tor a while. In that general "committee' meeting, speeches were permitted to continue, while the smaller groups ook up such problems as: Loans to small companies, unemployment, fair trade practices, social security, research for small business, wages and hours, housing, installment selling and the development and locating of small industries. Speaker Asked to Quit The speech-making in the auditorium continued until the recess for lunch—and after. A. S. Shaffer, Philadelphia building contractor, just kept on talking after the recess. A policeman finally asked him to quit, so Janitors could sweep out. Some said they were interested In getting taxes imposed on chain cor- wratlons. Others sought conference ipproval of varied types of restric- ions on their big competitors. Many said they believed these demands might figure in President Roosevelt's efforts to end monopol- es and business "abuses." Many Sscgesttons Beady The business men will continue their "town meeting" with commerce department officials until tomorrow afternoon. Then a dozen of hem will report to Mr. Roosevelt what they and their colleagues think should be done to Improve and stabilize business. Group discussions in and out of conference halls, ranging from calm appraisals to torrid arguments, indicated there would be no lack of uggesUons. A proposal for federal loans to -mall concerns probably will head the list. Letters which business men have written the president indicate a tight credit situation- is one of their chief worries. Mr. Roosevelt said at his press conference yesterday that government study of the credit question would be reopened. Consider Ran Problem At the same time the president disclosed that aid for another big section of business—the railroad industry—was tinder consideration. He said Walter M. W. Splawn, chairman of the Interstate Commerce pt»«Tni«aton. had suggested a White House conference on ways to help the carriers and was arrant- ing with rail offldals and others to attend. The prasMknt also gav« further attention yesterday to the problems of the automobile indurtxy. Representatives of the United Automo- 1130,000,000 at relief in Mtchlcan and reporUd bile appropriation for that the bad agreed to take up the natter with the Works Progress administration. In the general relief field. WPA offldals disclosed they had decided to expand their rolls to approxi- matelr MM.OM tn Febmar*. They hoped that business improvement in the' spring and summer would permit curtailment to 1300,000 by June and thus offset the temporary expansion. Enrollment reached 1,831,000 in late January. An Pay Own Expenses The small business men at today's conference were from stores and factories, men who only yesterday took off their grocery aprons and drug store Jackets, and men who usually the overalls of cattle raisers. All highly articulate, they had asked that they, as well as the nation's leading industrialists and financiers, be permitted to lay their problems before the administration. A delegation of about 100 came from New York, some carrying placards telling their intention to "bust the recession." A few invitations had been sent to representatives of trade organizations, and-some men ware invited at the request of congressmen. All paid their own expenses. Following the morning organization meeting, the T^frrf*- was to split into 10 groups, to lessen confusion by separating the points at issue. Each group was told to report tomorrow recommendations on one of these general topics: Ask Credit Agency Loans to small companies, fair trade practices and prices, unemployment, social security, government research and small business. wages and hours, housing, installment selling, development and location of small industries, and miscellaneous subjects. Charles P. Bloomer, executive rice-president of the wearing apparel board of trade of Pennsylvania, prepares* a -resolution asking creation of a federal "intermediate credit agency." Bloomer and several other trade association representatives were ready also to urge approval of legislative curbs on chain store competition. Dewitt M. Emery of Akron. Ohio 215-pound president of the National Small Business Men's association, said: "I fail to see any need for specific legislation to help the little fellow. If the government would only let us alone, we can pull ourselves out." Wisconsin Will Consolidate Nine State Inspectional Services. Madison, Fek- *-<*•>—The com mlttee on reorganization of state departments approved late yester day a proposal by Governor La Follette to consolidate nine state inspectional sex vices. While nominally a part of the tax commission, the new agency to be known as the state inspection and enforcement department, wO] be-under control of .a board com' pond of directors of the tax com' mission, department of agriculture and markets, public service com' mission and conservation commis slon and the secretary of the state Ijomj of health. Governor La Follette, in submitting the new plan, pointed out tha a consolidation would result in di< vision of the state into smaller inspectional districts and each inspector would perform some or al the functions previously performed by nine men. The governor said the salaries of the 178 inspectors in various categories totaled $306.860 in the last fiscal year, while their traveling expenses were $173.740. He reasonec that expenses would be reduced greatly by creation of smaller districts in which inspectors could return to their homes at night. The following employes are affected by the transfer: 57 oU inspectors, 21 beverage tax inspectors 19 beverage tax enforcement agents, eight traffic inspectors of the treasury department, 33 ton-mile truck tax inspectors, eight sealers 0 weights and measures, two inspectors of feeds and fertilizers, a sampler of seeds and 39 treasury agents The committee transferred pure food inspection other than of dairy products from the agriculture department to the board of health. Control of the worskshop for the blind and the social agency for the adult blind was placed with the department of vocational and adult education. The library school and the "traveling library" were transferred from the library commission to the University of Wisconsin board of regents. The committee will meet again February 17.

Sherman anti-trust act by fixing gasoline prices. Judge Stone has withheld sentence until he rules on these motions as well as motions for a new trial. A second indictment against some of the same and additional defendants, which Attorney General Cum- mlngs said In Washington today orobably would go to trial next fall, also will be tried before Judg- Stone. No NBA Cenneetim Besides dealing with another matter—alleged fixing of Jobbers' margins of profit, the second case also differs from that in which the defendants recently were convicted, lustlce department representatives have said, in that there is no connection with the former NRA. One of the focal points of the recent trial was the defense contention that a surplus gasoline buying nrogram. which the government al- 'eged was a means of raising and fixing midwestern prices, was start ed as a part of the NRA and was continued after the Blue Eagle's demise with governmental acquiescence. The second indictment alleges a conspiracy beginning in 1931 and continuing to the date of indictment in December, 1936. BOUND OVER Ashtand.

Feb. *—(*)—Britain today called for rigid enforcement of the three-power Mediterranean wanhip patrol to put down what Foreign Secretary Anthony Eden called a "revival of piracy" arising from Spain's civil war. Eden called on Ranee and Italy, sharinf with Britain the patrol set up by the Nyon accord of last fall, to Join in direct action against the recurring submarine menace, but the bouse of commons dtena Spanish government charge* that Italy herself was rfsporuihle for the latest sinking. Eden told the home Britain already had acted to strengthen the patrol—spurred by the sinking of the British freighter Endymion by an unidentified submarine off Cartagena. Spain, Sunday with the loss of ten lives. He said he had definite proposals to put before the ambassadors of France and Italy, whom he summoned to conference on means of meeting the new submarine danger, The situation was complicated by charges of the Spanish government that Italy had placed four destroyers and two submarines at the disposal of the Spanish insurgent navy, and that it was an Italian vessel that sank the Endymion- In commons David Rhys GrenfeU. Laborite, suggested that the nonintervention committee be informed there was "considerable ground for assuming that the attacks (on shipping) were caused by nations who had pledged themselves to non-intervention." Eden said the Spanish government charges against Italy had "nothing to do with the immediate question." In the western Mediterranean eight British destroyers continued their search for the submarine responsible for what Eden called an unjustified attack on the Endymion. REPUBLIC OBJECTS TO BOARD'S REPORT Threatens to Appeal Hibbing Case to Court. Republic Steel corporation has filed objections and exceptions to the intermediate report of the examiner for the National Labor Relations Board in the case of Norton Brownlee against Republic Steel corporation, it was learned here today. Brownlee was formerly employed at the Susquehanna Mine at Ribbing. The hearings were held recently in Hibbing. According to J. E. Nelson, manager of ore mines for Republic Steel corporation, objections and exceptions were filed because the findings of the trial examiner are not supported by the evidence and are contrary to law. Nelson pointed out that the examiner's intermediate report is merely a recommendation to the National tabor Relations Board and does not constitute an order. "Should the Labor Relations Board agree with the examiner's findings", nid Nelson. "Republic win undoubtedly appeal the case to the federal court. In the meantime. of course. Republic is not obliged to comply with the recommendations of the trial examiner". Policy Racket Chieftain Captured in Apartment he would not have known Davis had be seen him on the street Dewey bu described Davis as a man from a modest upstate New York hamlet who rose to wealth and power within the realm of crime. He kept three apartment*, boasted an expensive wardrobe, engaged an entire floor in a downtown skyscraper as offices, and was a well-known figure in "cafe society." Within ten yean of practice. Dewey said. Davis had established powerful political connections. It was only after creation of Dewey's racket-destroying bureau that suc- cessors to SchulU and rival lords of vice and rackets lost confidence in immunity. Even "easy money" began to come hard. Davis was ordered to answer questions about Schulti as early as 1933. He appeared before grand Juries and courts frequently after that in connection with Investigators' of the Wiley "Dutchman's" farfiung racket empire. Davis was reported sought not only by the law but SchulU enemies outside the law as well. On July 14. 1937. Davis was among those indicted in the policy racket. Re went out to buy a few trifles.

Michigan's largest agricultural conference neared its climax today as thousands of Michigan farmers and their families poured into East Lansing to attend the third day session of fanners' week at M'^'gan State college.

Verschure also won the sweepstakes award for showmanship of potatoes selected for uniformity of shape, size and color, while the prise for the best table stock potatoes went to August Dvokkola of Calumet. VON BLOMBERG QUITS HIS POST (Continued troai p«f* aot.1 that the war minister's resignation was impending referred to it as an other "Wallis Simpson affair"—referring to the decision of former King Edward Vm of England to abdicate rather than give up the woman of his choice. They said that Von Blomberg. realising how formidable was the opposition in the army to his mar- "iage, remarked: "Wen, I love her, and I would rather give up my Job than leave sr." The 39-year old field marshal's bride is 28 and the daughter of a carpenter.

The next thing I knew I was standing there with a gun in my hand. There was blood, and he was moaning." That was the climax of Wright's fight to save himself from the lethal gas chamber. By his own testimony he branded his wife as unfaithful to marriage vows. Bare Life's Secrets It was the climax of several crowded hours in the witness chair in a stuffy litle courtroom. He bared many secrets of his life as a student at the University of Wisconsin, as an artillery sergeant in the World War, as bond trader in Chicago "with 26 telephones on my desk," as a druggist in St. Petersburg, Fla., and as an airplane salesman. He admitted he told friends he suspected his wife of unfaithfulness but insisted that at no time did he plan to take her life. November 8. 1937, was the first tune, he said, that, to his knowledge, Mrs. Wright and Kimmel were together alone. That was the night they were killed.

With 32 men in custody. Keegan appealed to the public for information about bombings, beatings, win- dow-smashings and other violence. He laughed off threat* of harm unless the investigation is dropped. Names of informants will be withheld and "there need be no fear of reprisal," he promised. He asserted threats made against him and Carson in telephone calls 'don't mean much. I'm not paying any attention to them-" Sixteen city, state and county officers studied stacks of reports and statements from men held for investigation. Nearly 200 reported acts of violence in less than a year formed the background for the drive. Deputy County Prosecutor Clarence A. Potts declared. He said lives had been endangered by dynamite plots, automobiles scarred with acid and scores of business and residential properties damaged. In each case. Potts said, there was a labor dispute in the background. Mayor Carson in a speech to civic groups last night attacked labor leaders and the national labor relations board. He charged "no rules of evidence govern its (the NLRB's) conduct. My police department was indicted and condemned by the board, but neither my chief nor I was consulted." Keegan said James T.
