PACE TWO TOE News Review of Current Events the World Over President Hoover Orders Drastic Economies in partments Old Military Posts May Be Abandoned Briand Defeated. Anglo-Frenc- De- By EDWARD W. PICKAKD H K S 1 1) E N T I louver notified the members of tlie cabinet that they must introduce economies In their depurtid e n t 8 wherever possible.

Hurley er the President with Secretary of War Hurley and Secretary of the Navy Adams, and it is evident lie expects ninny of the economies to be made effective In those departments. Surveys have been recently made Indicating liow savings could be made by the sale of old Indian posts, navy shore stations coast artillery fortilicntlons, and yards and oilier shore properties of the navy that ure no longer needed fop purposes of national defense. Secretary Hurley said the other day that the iiiliiilnlKt ration desired to remove army posts from the "pork barrel" classification, and It seems that among those considered superfluous are Fort Lincoln, North Dakota, Fort Meade, South Dakota; Fort Missoula, Montana; Fort Justus. Virginia, and various posts along the Mexican border. Home air flying fields also may be abandoned. How far the expenses of the military establishments can be cut is problematical. The lust annual supply hill for the War department carried about JM4i,000,000, of which approximately $111,000,000 was to he devoted to nonmllltary activities. The latter figure included $00,000,000 for rivers and harbors and $:.00O,000 for Mississippi flood control. As for the navy, it Is known that civilian labor cost that department $79,000,000 Inst year. Some ofllcinl investigators have estimated the Navy department personnel at Washington could be cut as much as 40 per cent without Impairing elliclency. Congressmen In whose states are located the obsolete army posts and liad conferred surplus shore stations probably will fight against their abandonment, that being their habit in matters of this sort, but if economies are applied throughout all the executive departments their political wrath may be unavailing. FRKD of the President'svice emergency committee for unemployment, stated that during the week ending May 9 contracts were awarded for e work and public amounting to $27.SK)4,7!!. This brought the total since December 1. 1030, to nearly a billion and a half. C. CKOXTON, semi-publi- PORKIG.V P MIN- - Ister AristldeBriand was per- tVrr "SO .

The result was that he failed of election on the first ballot M, Briand astounded and broken hearted, he withdrew his name from the presidential contest.

This action by the French parliament was of Importance not only to France but to It Europe and all the world. meaus that for the present ot least Iiriand's policy of peace and conciliation is discarded and the nationalists are In the saddle. It is possible Briand will continue to represent his government In the debates of the League of Nations at Geneva, but if he does he will be subject to daily orders from Paris. More likely It Is that he will soon retire to Cocherel, his home. He has been In poor healtii for maDy months and it is feared this defeat will break him down badly. Andre Tardieu and Edouard Herrlot, leaders of the left, are held mainly responsible for the rejection of Briand. gfff -- Vl and. A of Spain, egged on by Communists and very possibly by Monarchist plotters, staged violent riots In Madrid and other cities for several days, and the government was forced to proclaim martial law. The mobs directed their attacks against Catholic churches and other religious edifices and burned many of them. Monks and nuns were beaten and driven through the streets, and In some cases the troops that were called out refused to move against the rioters, telling their otiicers they would not fire on the people. Angel Galarza, the republic's prosecutor, declared the riots were the result of a carefully laid Monarchist pjot and tiiat there would be a monster trial of captured royalists In which former l"Ung Alfonso will be Judged, In his absence, for complicity.

Duncan U. Fletcher, senator from Florida and rank-SeFletcher lng Democrat on the senate commerce committee, voiced the opposition to the plan. He called for lower rates rnther than higher carrying charges nnd said one reason why trucks were moving so much freight today was because of "high rail rates." "I cannot see how the railroads can expect to Increase their revenues by Increasing rates," he said. "Some ten years ago an increase of 40 per cent was allowed the railroads and this brought the rates up to the highest point ever reached. They have been revised downward by the Interstate commerce commission In 5,000 out of 6,000 cases brought. "Today the railroads complain of a loss of business and lay a good deal of that to competition by trucks and to some extent airplanes. Undoubtedly they would increase their revenues by raising the rates provided they could carry the same amount of tonnage, hut it is perfectly obvious that one reason why trucks are moving so much freight is because of the high rail rates. Consequently If these rates were Increased there would be an Inevitable decrease In tonnage.' n. of the world's greatest Prof. Albert A.
