London, July 6 Virtual admis Ion that Great Britain is prepar ing ror a far-reaching world peace conference in which the United States will be an active participant was made today by Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain in the House of Commons. The Prime Minister's statements came as Premier Paul Van Zeeland of Belgium arrived in England after a series of important discussions with President Roosevelt in .Washington. The Princeton-educated Belgian Premier, who conferred with British statesmen late today, is said to have brought with him America's terms for participation In uch a world conference.

States on the subject of having America join the conference, Prime Minister Chamberlain told Com mons: "I think it a superficial view to assume that you can solve the prob lems of the world merely by calling a world conference. In order to be successful, a world conference must be preceded by very careful prepar ation." To another question, he replied: "The government has shown" a willingness to cooperate in entering the tri-partite monetary agreement, and in conjunction with the French Government we will talk with the Belgian Premier this afternoon." An added reflection on his sue cess in sounding out President Roosevelt's views on the subject of an international conference was voiced by Premier Van Zeeland on his arrival at Southamption today. He said: "President Roosevelt was very helpful. I am very satisfied with my visit. I have returned with a new light on International affairs and much new information." TELLS OF UNITED STATES. Van Zeeland conferred with Chamberlain for an hour and a quarter early this evening. Later, he attended a dinner party at the home of Foreign Secertary Anthony Eden, with Lord Halifax, President of the Board of Trade, and others. A Foreign Office statement said in part: "During -the course of the con versations Premier Van Zeeland's impressions of his visit to the United States were discussed. An agreement was reached as to fur ther steps which might usefully be taken in pursuit of the objects of Van Zeeland's .investigations." President Roosevelt reportedly made clear to Van Zeeland that the United States will sit in on international peace talks only when, and if, Europe shows a unified willingness to establish peace, halt the world arms race, and generally clean house across a world con ference table. Democracies To Win Race Of Arms, Bingham Says London, July 5 (AP) Britain and America will win the world rearmament race, United States Ambassador Robert W. Bingham declared tonight, although they en tered it reluctantly. If dictatorships are better to prepare for' war, democracies are better to finish wars," Bingham said in address to the American Society in London's Independence Day dinner. "Despots have forced America and Britain to undertake rearma ment and, having undertaken it, we must necessarily win the rearmament race. "May we hope that this realiza tion may come to war-mongers in time, and before another catas trophe occurs, so terrible and ghastly that imagination recoils." Roosevelt Notes Start On World Peace Task Charlottesville, Va., July 5 (AP) President Roosevelt expressed conviction that a constructive beginning has been made in the Western Hemisphere 1 1 the establishment of machinery for international peace, in a message de livered tonight at the opening of the eleventh annual Institute of Public Affairs, University of Virginia. In his message, read by Dr. Charles Gilmore Maphis, institute director, the Chief Executive said, "The problem before every thinking man and woman" was "how to STEAMSHIPS. Spa v.r!

George Palmer Putnam, Miss Earhart's husband, caid in Oakland he believed the words "above water," indicated certainly the plane had landed on a reef, that the gasoline, required to turn the right motor to provide radio transmission, was being exhausted, and that his wife and Noonan were somewhere north of Howland. The Coast Guard here messaged Washington that independent hearings armeared to agree with the garbled transmission from the Department request British cooper o'clock (Pacifio Standard Time) this morning, he said. The naval minesweeper Swan was within 200 miles of Howland Island at 9 o'clock (Eastern Stand' aid Time) this morning.

A Ce Soir reporter asked him: "Do vou believe she is lost? And his answer was "How should I know? Nevertheless, I should sav 'No.' " In sUDnort of a Pan-American Airwavs suggestion, based on bear ings from the faint signals, that the plane might be in the Phoenix Island group, the Coast Guard at San Francisco suggested the btate Diane, that Miss Earhart and Noo nan were approximately 281 miles north of Howland. From San Diego, Calif., swinging down the great arc toward the tropic waters, the navy's fastest vessels hastened to the Howland Island area.

These people overlook the fact that the fault is not lack of laws, but rather their own carelessness in investing, buying or signing. It is impossible to pass enough laws to protect people against their own carelessness. It is impossible to enforce laws so perfectly that they are never violated. READ--INVESTIGATE If people will read and understand provisions of contracts before they 6ign, if they will investigate before they invest, then they will not be disturbed about the sufficiency of laws or those few who violate the exist; ing statutes.

Professional and amateur radio operators throughout Japan kept constant vigil for a signal from the missing flier, believing that she may be marooned on one of the Phoenix group of islands south of Howland Island. rier Lexington, mothering 57 pursuit planes. Accompanying the carrier were the destroyer Drayton, Lamson, -and dishing. From Honolulu the battleship Colorado, bearing three navy planes with great cruising range was speeding southward. As the vessels draw near the search area, planes will leave the decks to take up their own pursuit of clues. The Colorado also carries fuel and water supplies for the cutter Itasca, so short on both that drinking water has been rationed to the crew. For three days without pause the Itasca has searched the waters east and west of Howland Island and to the north. Great smoke beacons have been sent up by day, and searchlights lashed the skies at night, signals for the missing fliers. CONSTANT WATCH KEPT. On every ship and in every shore station, a constant watch was kept for signals from the Earhart plane. The ceaseless vigil brought small reward in definite information, but endless rumors came from amateur listeners over htlf the world. Coast guard listeners said, how ever, that probability was lent the "281 North Howland" report by the fact that the freighter Moorby, itself north of Howland Island, re ported at 6:30 o'clock (Eastern Standard Time) this morning that it had heard a strong continuous carrier wave on the Earhart frequency, A message from the command ing officer of the aircraft carrier Lexington said the vessel expects to reach Lahaina Roads, in the Hawaiian Islands at approximately 2 o'clock (Eastern Standard Time) on the afternoon of July 8. She will refuel at that point, which is about 75 miles southeast of Honolulu, before proceeding to the Howland Island area. The Lexington was averaging 25 to 26 knots, virtually her top speed The carrier likely would wait until she leaves Lahaina to release squadrons of her planes to aid in the hunt. THREE BASHES HEARD. Paul Mantz, technical adviser to Miss Earhart when she was making her globe-encircling flight plans, said three long dashes, as requested by the Pan-American station at Honolulu, had been heard by him in Los Angeles. We heard the dashes here, he said, "and this is the most hopeful sign yet." The dashes wer received at 5 ation in an examination of unln rts nf the islands Pan American radio men esti mated the Earhart ship might be in the vicinity of Gardner and Mc Kean Islands in the Phoenix group which is from 150 to 200 miles south of Howland Island. Rnnvrhers renorted they were heartened, also, by what appeared to be wirelessed replies to instruc tional broadcasts sent to the miss Imr fliers bv Station KGMB at Honolulu. The faint signals were intf-rr.eDted bv the navy, coast guard, and Pan American stations at Honolulu, and by the coast guard at San Francisco. WHISTLES IN REPLY. The fliers were told to send scries of two long dashes if they were on the water, and a series of three long dashes if they were on land. Apparently in reply, on the 3105-kilocvcle band assigned to the Earhart plane, came a number of high frequency whistles from a car rier wave, but most listeners couia not be certain what the genders were trvine to transmit. Mantz interpreted them as three long dashes. Through commercial stations here, Miss Earhart's husband sent frequent encouraging messages. "Heln is on the way," he told her. "Signals have been heard." VOICE NOT AMELIA'S? Raymond Mahoney, 3818 Herron Avenue, who reported Sunday that he had picked up faint radio sig nals from Amelia Earhart, missing round-the-world flyer, said yester day that he still was receiving brief Dhrases of appeal from the avia- trlx, for whom he said he worked in Hollywood until a few weeks ago. However, radio engineers, ex amining his receiving set yester day, were doubtful that the mes sages he has been hearing came from the lost flier because they think his set Is not tuned to the band assigned to Miss Earhart. New Bill Sponsored By Pope And McGill To Revise Farm Act Washington, July 5 (AP) Two Democratic members of the Senate Agriculture Committee drafted today a measure they called" a "thoroughly Democratic" method of improving and stabilizing agriculture. Senator James P. Pope of Idaho and George McGill of Kansas said their legislation, a revision of the pending "Agriculture Adjustment Act of 1937," will be Introduced to morrow. They added they expected the Roosevelt Administration to back it. The new measure deletes a flexible tariff provision of the older measure a provision to which Secretaries Henry A. Wallace and Cordell Hull objected. It declares one of its aims is to assure farmers a "parity" income that is, equal to the purchasing power attained in the pre-war years 1909 to 1914. It would establish an "ever-normal granary" and a quota system of crop control, but would require a two-thirds vote of producers of affected commodities before control measures could be taken. Pope was unwilling to predict Congress would pass the legislation at this session, but advocated committee hearings with the idea of putting it into effect next year. "A 200,000,000-bushel wheat surplus is in prospect this year and another such surplus would beat prices down to a serious degree," he said. 1 LEGISLATORS Warned By Distillers Against Increasing Liquor Tax Rate Gain In Consumption Of Beverages Forecast. Washington, July 5 (AP) The Distilled Spirits' Institute warned legislators today against seeking to balance their budgets by increasing the tax on alcoholic beverages. Reporting state and Federal revenue from such beverages' totaled $864,927,355 in 1936, the distillers' organization issued a statement which said in part: "We may expect a further increase In consumption of alcoholic beverages for 1937, and perhaps still further reduction in bootlegging, with consequent increases in public revenues from alcoholic beverages. "But the bootlegger stands ready to recover lost ground whenever legislators disregard his capacity to take advantage of high liquor tax rates and seek to balance their budgets by the simple device of in-Creasing the tax on alcoholic bev-. erases." The Institute reported consumption of alcoholic beverage, although higher last year than in 1935, still was substantially less than in 1916, which it called the last comparable pre-prohibition year. Asserting the Federal Government collected $612,581,000 from taxes and customs on alcoholic beverages last year, the institute said this made the industry rank second only to the income tax as a source of treasury income. New York had the greatest net revenue with $41,416,229, it was reported, followed by Pennsylvania with $29,223,470 and Ohio with $26,706,927. Of the wet states, Nevada's net revenue of $371,227 was the lowest, the institute added. HYDE PARK PLAY DAY SET.
