THE PACE TWO News Review of Current Events the World Over President Confers Willi Roosevelt and Congress Leaders on War Debts Hitler Offered German Rule Under Conditions. By EDWARD W. PICKARD RESIDENT HOOVER and pres- policies and that General Kurt 1) ident Elect Roosevelt held tlit'ir scheduled conversation on the war debts in tlie White House Tuesduy und views lis to the wis- exchanged est course for the I'nlted Stutes government to pursue. conference The have been of value to the two gentlemen but Its national or Intemay rnational Impor- tance Is questionable. Mr. RooseDr. Raymond velt had no Intention of committing Moley himself concerning the debt question or of nssiMiiIng any responsibility In advance of his Inauguration. Mr. Hoover can do nothing more than make a recommendation to congress In the matter of reopening the debt settlements, and it Is practically certain tiiHt congress is overwhelmingly opposed to reducing the debts or suspending the payments. Besides Mr. Hoover nnd Mr. Roosevelt, there were but two persons admitted to the conference. These were Secretary of the Treasury Ogden Mills, who with Secretary of State Stlmson had prepared the data for the President ; and Dr. Raymond Moley, professor of government and law in Columbia university, who attended as Governor Roosevelt's adviser. Doctor Moley. an authority on sociology and crime, was one of the "brain trust" that traveled with Roosevelt during the campaign, nnd It was he who assembled much of the material for the governor's There are those who speeches. think the professor will be the Colonel Mouse of the Roosevelt admin- von Schleicher must be retained as minister of defense and Baron von Neurath as foreign minister. At this writing the outcome of the conference Is In doubt. Hitler was still trying to get assurance of a majority in the reiclistag, but thin seemed a feat almost Impossible, as Hugenbiirg's Nationalists and vari ous other relatively smal parties were holding out. Kon-stanti- REDUCTIONS In the budget reof $ri(K).(KJMXM). quested of the cabinet by president Hoover have been met. The cuts In appropriations for the fiscal year beginning June 1 next were settled by the cabinet at aliout $7OO,(MK).000, but It was explained that this would be offset "by certain Increases In uncontrollable Items, such as Interest and amortization on the public debt and tax refunds to the extent of about SISO.OOO.OOO." The White House statement said "the administration is determined to present a balanced budget," and leaders of congress appear equally determined to keep down the regular appropriations at the short session. TIMES-NEW- congress Its rights to prescribe diversion from Lake Michigan for navigation purposes. The Mississippi Valley association ha In the past Indorsed the St. Lawrence project, and It still does but It opposes the treaty in its present form. UOK A, the smooth, representative of Japan In Geneva, apfieured before the council of the League of Nations and set forth his country's position In relation to .Manchuria and China. In effect he defied the league and ridiculed the findings of the Lytton commission whose recommendation of the Internationalization of Manchuria he declared unthinkable. "Establishment of the state of Munchukuo seems to be the only solution possible," fuild Matsuoka In fluent English. "We have violated neither the covenant of the league, r tbo treaty nor the pact of Paris. We acted In and spontaneously, and when we acted the Independence movement developed spontaneously." Matsuoka assured the council that China was a dismembered nation which was a prey to rival war lords and was menaced by communism. Had China or even Manchuria been properly governed, the present situ atlon would not have arisen, he said Welington Koo replied with eloHe quence and spirit for China. charged that Japan had kept China In turmoil as part of a plan to conquer Asia and the world In successive stages. Matsuoka had complained that Chinese boycotts were Koo hurtful to friendly relations. Inquired whether friendly relations still existed. He explained that the sacrifice boycott was a and the most humane method of resistance to aggression yet devised. Then he whipped forth a clear threat In behalf of the Chinese government to legnllze, extend and protect the boycott. The league council was helpless, for there was no chance for conciliation, so the whole affair was referred to the assembly of the league. Whatever the assembly's may do, the statements of Foreign Minister Uchlda and the war office In Tokyo make it plain that Japan Intends to maintain the status quo In YOS U K E NEPIIL UTAH S.

With the fF3 election over everybody seems to have settled down to steady argument. The old "Hide Bound" Republt cans still think the world Is Just on the verge of coming to an end and you can kinder see their angle at that for they have been running things all these years. You would think a lot of folks would have their passage booked to bo me foreign land till the next election when tbey could get these Democrats back among the unemployed. Why they was In for eight years here not so long ago, from 1912 to 20. Course I was just a boy and cant remember back that far but I have beard my dear old Dad say there was some mighty good times including a war thrown in for good mfasure. Personally I never could see much difference In the two "Gangs". Tbey used to be divided by the Tarriff. The Tarriff was originally supposed to aid the man that manufactured things. Well the Democrats of those days dldent manafacture anything but arguments, so they was against the Tarriff, but the South woke up one day and saw some spinning looms advertised in a Montgomery Ward menu card, so they sent and got some and started spinning their own cotton. Well they had cheap water power, cheap coal, cheap labor, and the Yankees started moving their shops down from the North. Well the Democrats woke up on another morning with a Tarriff problem on their hands The South had gone In dustrlal In a big way. Well they started talking about a Tarriff in bigger words than the North, so now that the South has got era some smoke stacks where they only used to have some mule sheds why they are Just Tarrifflng themselves tc death. So that 'eft the principal dividing line between the two partiep shot to pieces. You cant tell one from the other now Course the last few years under Mr Coolidge and Mr HooVer there had grown the old original Idea of the Republican Party that It was the Party of the rich I think the general run of folk; had kinder got w'se to that In the old days tLey could get away with It, but of late years the rich had diminished till their voting power wasent enough to keep a minority vote going. This last election was a revulsion of feeling that went back a long way ahead of the hard time? Why after that twenty eight elec tion there was no holding em. They really did think they had "Hard Times" cornered once and for all Merger on top of merger Get two things merged and then Issue more stock to the Public. Con solidations and "Holding Com panies". Those are the "Inventions" that every voter that had bought during the "Cuckoo days were gunning for at this last election. Saying that all the big vote was just against hard times is not all so. They was voting against not being advised that all these foreighn loans was not too solid. They was voting because they had never been told or warned to the contrary that every big consolidation might no) be just th best investment. You know the people kinder look on our Government to tell em and kindei advise em. An many an old bird really got sore at Coolidge, but could only take it out on Hoover. Big busi ness sure got big, but it got big by selling its stocks and not by selling its products. No scheme was halted by the Government as long as some body would buy the stock. It could have been a plan to deepen the At lantic Ocean and it would have had the indorsement of the proner department I n Washington, and the stocks would have gone on the market. This election wns lost four a. id five and six years ago and not this year. They dident start thinking of the did the President say to Britten? That was the question that was agitating the proponents of a bill legalizing beer. The wet congressman from Chicago ad mittedly went to the White House in the hope of finding out what Mr. Hoover would do to such a bill if it were passed in the short session, and as he came forth lie announced he was convinced that the President would not veto it.
