I;URRENT [V[NTS PASS IN REVIEW By EDWARD W. PICKARD ~), W~tern Newspaper Union, CHANCELLOR ItITLER'S virtual threats of war, though coupled with protestations of peaceful inten- tion, are having their effect In almost every nation on earth. In his own land the result is probably one of his main objectives, for the Germans, in their loud rejoicings over the military re- birth of the reich a~qd regaining of its old position, are losing sight of the grave eco- nomic prohlems which the relchsfuehrer has Anthony Eden not yet been able to solve. France, having decreed the enlarg- Ing of its army and the increase In the term of conscription, began mov- ing fully half of the troops heretofore placed along the Italian frontier to the Rhine area. Premier Mussolini of Italy, as minister of war, ordered the reeall of the entire military class of ]911, estimated at 220,000 men. These additions bring the strength of the army up to approximately 675,000, and when the more than 400,000 Fascist militia are Included, the Italian forces number more than a million. The class of 1913, due to be dismissed soon, is being kept under arms. Mussolini made a hot speech to the nation In which he said Italy was ready "for any threat of war" and that "our desire for peace and European col- laboration Is based upon some mil- lions of bayonets." According to a Rome paper that usu- ally speaks with authority, there will soon be held an Anglo-Franco-Italian conference to discuss the re-armament of Austria, Bulgaria. and Hnngary. Tills has heretofore been Olrposed by the countries of the little entente, but it is supposed their views have been altered hy recent developments. Even in the United States the sentl- meat for at least adeqnate defense has been spurred. The senate and house conferees reached an agreement on the $400,000,000 War department appropristion bill. The house confer- ees receded from a proposal to give tide Pcesldent discretionary authority as to the rate of increasing the army's strength to 165,000 men. The senate plan providing that the increase shall begin at once was adopted. The pro- posed increase, recommended by the War department as necessary to bring the army up to the "least allowable minimum" was the major new pro- vision of the bill but it represented a gain In total appropriations of more thnn $70.000,000 above last year. AS a preliminary to this meeting there was an important conference in Paris particjpated In by Capt. Anthony Eden. Brittsh lord privy seal; Fulvlo Suvieit. ltallan under-secretary of for- eign affairs; and Foreign Minister Lanai of France. Lanai sought to stiffen the British attitude toward Hit- ler. but Eden tried to turn him from bls determination not to deal with [:ermany until the l.eague of Nations has passed on France's pretest of Ger- man violation of the Versailles treaty. It is understood France proposed to impose severe economic penalties to Germany but that Eden persuaded Lanai that such measures should be delayed until they had been debated at tide coming meeting of the powers at Corot. Italy. This conference was postponed for some da~s to give Edeu time to go to Moscow. R ESTRICTIONS on planting spring wheat have been removed by Sec- retary of Agriculture Wallace, who fears the effect of another widespread drouth. The y e a r's first crop report show- ing that farmers In- tend to plant 17,847,- 000 acres of spring wheat is said to be ro- spansible for Wallace's about face. Last year the acreage was 18.- 521,000 acres. The ad- mlnlsl ration Is con- vlnced that the gov- ermnent and farmers have a duty to protect Sec'y Wallace consumers against a wheat sht~rtage, he said. Farmers will plan an addi- tional t~lO,O00 to 2J~0.tYJ0 acres as a result of tile new order, and will her. vest between ten and thirty million bushels more. Wallace estinmtes. ~prlng wheat normally constitates about one-fourth of the nation's crop. He denied that tile European situa- tion poiattng to a possibility of in- creased sales had .~Jlything to do with the new decision. F~,-mers nnder con- tract who plant their full spring wheat acreage will reee~ve full I~,ne- fit payments" but in return will he required to agree to reduce produc- tion in I~16 by the amount asged in next year's contract plus the m~.~mt they would have reduced this year. There is no indication tlmt the cor~. acreage eotitrol program for 1935 will be altered. ~['~tIE Belcher ease, regarded as the lgovernment'a strongeag test of NRA'S eomBtitutlonallty, will be dropped, according to rvl~rts from WashinBtolL It will be recalled that William E. Belcher, Alabama lumber mill owner, was alleged to have paid employees less than the lumber code minimum wage, and to have kept them employed eight hours a week more than the code maximum. Belcher did not deny the charges, but attacked the constitutionality of NRA legislation. He was sustained in a demurrer by Judge William Grubb. whose recent ruling that TVA may not sell power in competition with private utilities gave scant comfort to the admlnistra- tlon. The Supreme court's decision in the Belcher case has been regarded as very important since It would go directly to the questlou of NRA's validity, and would make or brea~ government control of industry. JAPAN steps out of the l.eague ot Nations and flanked by her single avowed ally. Manchukuo, she faces the world as the self-chosen preserver of peace in the Orient. Japan's action is the culmination of a series of events started February 24, 1933, when Yosuke MatSuaka led the entire Jap- anese delegation in a walkout from the league assembly. Shortly after, Japan gave formal notice of Iter with- drawal from the league because the as- semhly had censured Japanese aggres- sion in Manchuria. She has advised other powers that she considers her- self guardian of peace in eastern Asia, and that outside assistance is neither desired nor invited. In addi- tion, Japan has embarked on an arma- ment policy marked by denunciation of the Washington naval treaty, de- mands for naval parity with Great Britain and the United States, and armed forces "snfficient to defend, but inadequate to attack." H ERBEItT HOOVER suddenly proj- ected himself into the political picture, and set wagging the tongues of countless politicians and observers. In a letter addressed to the California Re- publican assembly, meeting In Sacramen- to, tile former Presi- dent spoke hls mind with utmost freedom concerning the doings of the Roosevelt ad- ministration w h o s e theories, he &~serted "are no longer a propa- gandized milennium ; I-~rhert they are self-exposed." Hoover The Republican party, sald Mr. Hoover, has today tile great- est responsibility that has come to It since the days of Abraham Lincoln--to raise the standard in defense of funda- mental American principles: and he called for a rejuvenated and vigorous Republican organization. Here are some of the tl~ings Mr. Hoo- ver said in arraigning the present ad- ministration : "The most solemn government obli- gations have been repudiated, "The nation is faced with the great- est debt ever known to our country. "The currency has been rendered un- certain. "The government has been central- ized under an enormous bureaueracy in Washington . small business men have been disabled and crushed. Cla~ conflicts have been created and embittered. "The cost of living ls steadily ad- vancing. "'More people are dependent upon the government for relief than ever before. "Recovery is still delayed." Leaders of the regular Reubltcans in Washington were quick to declare their approval of Mr. Hoover's attack on the New Deal. Most of them scouted the idea that be was tentatively look- ing toward another nomination, but the general impression was that he was in the way of becoming the leader of his party In fact as well as in name. CONSIDERABLY mutilated, tbe ad- ministration's $4.880.000,000 work relief bill finally got through the senate by a vote of 68 to 16. and was returned to the house later, to be adjusted in conference. Tile senators accepted an amendment by Senator Thomas of Okla. homa for a currency expansion of $375,- 000,000 through the issuance of sliver certificates at the $1.',>'.) an ounce mone- tary value of the treasury's silver stocks Instead of the present practice of using the purchase, value of the sil- ver. However. it was confidently ex- pected this wouhl be stricken out in the conference. I'reviously the senate rejected Senator's VCheeler's amend- ment for $4.000.~3.000 of new currency to finance the works program. Another amendment which was adopted was that offered hy McCarran of Nevada requiring senate conflrma- tlon of all officials receiving $5,tX)0 or more who would ilave charge of ex- t, anditure of the fund. One of the efforts to specify tlle use of part of the huge work fund was given tim approval of the flood control committee of the house. It is a bill to earmark $600,000,000 of the money for flood projects in all parts of the coun- try, and under It about 400 projects which have been recommended by army ~nglneers would be started. The committee was tohl the list of projects called for expenditure of ap- proximately $100.000,000 in the lower Mississippi river valley and that ex- penditure of $181,000,000 would "pre- vent the devastating floods" In that ar~a. BY A vote of 20"2 to 191, the house voted to substitute the Patman currency expansion bill for payment o,J the soldiers' bonus for the "sound money" plan of Representative VIn- ann. A ~')lsterous house thus defied President Roosevelt's warning that be wltl veto immedlatm payment of the adjusted eompemmtlon certifies tes~ The admlnistrstlon is eountlng on the senate sustatnlng the veto. THE BEACH REVIEW pRESTDEN~P ROO~EVEI.T Is look- ing ahead to 1936. Authoritative word has reached the Capitol that he wants all controversial administration legislation cleared away at this ses- ~on, so that congress can meet for a short and harmonious session prior to the 1936 Presidential campaign. Besides the relief bill. Mr. Roosevelt is said to he specially anxious to have con. gress pass his social security program ; utility hohling compm~y legislation; a bill continuing NRA for two years; transportation regulation co-ordina- tion; banking legislation; ship sub- sidy and increase in the capital of the Home Owners Loan corporation. If this can be cleared from the calendar, it may prevent any serious party squabbles that might interfere with plans to bring about Roosevelt's re- election. The White House is much concerned over rumors that congress may scrap a good part of the admin- istration's controversial legislation. SI'RIN(I ?frlved in the West with a stitlin~ dust storm which shroud- ed the country from eastern New Mex. ice to the Great Lakes. Powdered soil whipped up from the drouth- scourged prairies hid the san, and beat relentlessly upon the senses. A dozen dealhs were reported, due to suffoca- tions, dust-lndneed pneumonia and traffic accidents. Freight trains were rolled to sidings" and passenger trains crept along on slow orders. Schools were closed in a numher of communi- ties in western states. Wheat prices Jumped from 2 to 3% cents a bushel as winds cut into the dry Southwest. and Governor Landon of Kansas appealed to Preshlent Roosevelt for aid. THE government is ready to sell gold to foreign nations that eau offer an attractive proposition, Secre- tary Morgcnthau announces. Recent sales to the Bank of Mexico and to Guatemala, Morgenthau points out, have cleared the way to similar nego- tiations with other countries, although he emphasized that no other transac- tions are being considered at this time. No conditions were attached to the transactions already consum- mated. In the dealings with Mexico vlrtaally all her silver sales have been made to this country. "We've got all the gold we can pos- sibly use," Morgenthau added, indi- cating that the government would make no farther nndue efforts to as. cumulate tile metal. WITH considerable ceremony the Soviet government transferred to Japan full ownership of the Chinese Eastern miilway and thus ceased to be an opposing factor in the Japanese occupation of Manchuria. In the offi- cial residence of Foreign Minister Kokl Hirota in Tokyo the sale agree- ment and general protocol were signed and the bargain was clinched by the payment hy Japan of 23,333,000 yen to the Soviet ambassador. M USSOIJNI'S answer to the latest note on the Abyssinian situation postpones approval of the proposal that differences be decided by an inter- national commission on conciliations "at least until the futility of direct negotiations has been proved." II Duce made a counter- proposal suggesting tlmt the Italian minis- ter to Abyssinia and the Ethiopian foreign minister get together for a series of per- sonal conferences" go Premier over all the data, and Mussolini attempt to settle the dispute without the necessity of con- clliation umler the direction of the League of Nations. Dh'ect negotia- tions are sald to Imve the approval of both the French and British. CLARENCE DARItOW, foe of NRA, and author of the famous report which attacked NRA more than a year ago, assailed the administration's economic theories, including the na- tional recovery act, In his testimony be- fore the senate finance committee. The famous lawyer whose sharp speech and fiery courtroom tactics have made him famous, denounced NRA as playing into the hands of big business to the destruction of tim "little fellow." He argued that NItA attacked the prob- lem from the wrong angle and that the real trouble lay In faulty distribution. thus assallin~ the theory of scarcity. Darrow swept aside statements that NRA had helped organized labor, re- duced unemtdoyment and abolished child labor, with an assertion that It would have happened anyway. "Tim panic lint an end to child labor," he said. "There wasn't any room for it while fathers and mothers were out of work." The suffering due to continued con- eentration of wealth would have gone on anyhow, he said, but added that NRA accelerated it. "I am not an optimist," he added. "I may he an idiot, but not a cheer. fui hliot." THE federal tree planting project will get under way in North Da- kota on April 15. Tile project has al- ready been started in other states, but the major development of the pro- gram will he centered in North Da- kota this year. The state has been assigned a quota of 600.00O trees for a belt 35 miles long. This is only a part of tbe operations which envisage a 100-mile wide belt of trees extend- lag from near the Canadian border to the Gulf of Mexico. The work started March 1 in Texas and Oklahoma, and March 15 In Kaasa~ Nebraska and Bouth Dakoto p~aJects will be started at the same time as that In North Dakota. N .??.. ,o..
