MAN IS ARRESTED ON FIRE CHARGES (Continued From Page One) fire near Hampstead was reported nearly under control. One blaze was eating its way through the Padget section of Ons low county last night and during the last few days fires have been reported in the vicinities of Swans boro, Lloyd’s Meadow, Richlands, the State college property and near the Southern Kraft Paper company property. The fire wardens attributed the large number of forest conflagra tions to the dry condition of the woods and to the brisk winds. The flames are carried from one tree to another by the heavy undergrowth of dry grass. Fire Warden Dawson Jones said last night the fighters there have not yet turned in detailed reports hut most of the flames were extinguish ed with a destruction of something Eles than 5,000 acres of timber. Several of the blazes were started ly farmers burning of land, burning stumps and other areas.

Will Speak Here PR, BARUCH BRAITNSTEIN ADAMS PROPOSES BORROWING TO MEET SPENDING (Continued From Page One) the budget, but might necessi tate a later supplemental ap propriation. Adams said he thought that congress had “an obligation to decently take care of relief, but it shouldn’t attempt to fool the public and itself.” “We ought to get a fair, honest estimate of what seems to be required for relief needs and make an appropriation for a full year,” he said. “Then we should make provision to raise that money. There would be no use putting it down on paper when we couldn’t trans late it into bread.” Supporting Adams’ stand for , a full year appropriation, Sen ator Austin (R-Vt) said he would prefer new taxes to fi nance relief rather than an in crease in the debt limit. He observed that Adams’ propos al to grant specific borrowing auth orizations to the treasury might “take the ceiling" off the debt limit and said he would not be in clined to favor it. Economy advocates, meanwhile, were none too enthusiastic about the possibility of making any sav ings in the remaining appropria tions bills to be considered. The senate appropriations com mittee will resume work tomorrow on a war department civil func tions bill, already boosted $74,900, 000 by a subcommittee to provide $30,000,000 for flood control, $25, 000,000 for new rivers and harbors projects, $15,000,000 to start a third set of Panama canal locks and other minor items. THOMAS NOMINATED BY SOCIALIST PARTY (Continued From Page One) the things necessary for plenty, peace and freedom as the rightful possession of 130 million Ameri cans." "Why do I run? Because it is al ready clear that no matter what the old party conventions may do there can be no effective independent farmer-labor ticket in the field in 1940. It is already too late for such a party to appear on a national scale, except perhaps as a tempor ary expression of personal interest or desire for vengeance or a commun ist front. No Prophesy “I make no prophesy of the size of our vote. But this I affirm: if we can make our fellow-citizens stop and listen to our program for keep ing America out of war, and abolish ing poverty, if we can make our words like a burr to stick in their minds and consciences in this hour of darkness, doubt and confusion, we shall not have failed.” Most of the convention’s day was taken up with a renetval of yester day’s controversy over the party’s position with respect to American economic assistance to the Allies. A majority report had been prepared calling for a position against any sort of intervention. A minority arguing for assistance to the Allies lost 28 to 159 in an effort to sub stitute a statement of their own views. The adoption of the remain der of the party's platform was post poned until tomorrow. In nominating Thomas, Felix praised him as one whose "entire adult life” had been spent "in the service of the oppressed and exploit ed.” He praised him, too, for his many fights for civil liberties and his “lifelong uncompromising strug gle against war.” The latter alone, he said, should "make him the na tural choice of all, whether socialist or not, of those who abhor war.” DESTROYER ROE ARRIVES TODAY (Continued From Page One) by the Country club, and the men will be guests at a dance at the Cape j'ear armory, with music to be furnished by Ozier Stevens and his orchestra.

BRITAIN PLANS FURTHER CUT IN U. S. PURCHASES (Continued from Page One) been home several months, and Sir Percy Lorrain, ambassador to Italy, will attend the meetings of Britain’s representatives in the Balkans. Foreign Secretary Lord Halifax will preside at the first meeting tomorrow. Britain has warned the Balkans that they would be deprived of rubber and other products of the empire if they act as reservoirs for German war supplies. Confidence in tightening of the blockade around Germany and the drive for markets was expressed freely in Britain. The Sunday Chronicle proclaim ed that “Britain has taken the offensive. The great push is on— bloodless but deadly.” Reynolds News reported the plan for wtjsky dumping with the head line “Whisky to Buy Us Bombers.” The paper said Sir Andrew Rae Duncan, president of the board of trade, also would announce plans regarding limitation on imports of American-made movies next week. Determined “The government is determined to stop the transfer of sterling abroad wherever possible and if the process continues it is possible that eventually a ban on Holly wood films may be declared,” the newspaper declared. Britain was said to pay between £8,000,000 and £10,000,000 ($28,480, 000 to $35,600,000) for American films annually. Britain’s economic drive was careful to take in dominion sources of supply. Dispatches from Sydney said Australian wool exports would be limited to those countries which guaranteed to refuse exports to Germany. Radio reports were quoted as saying Spain already had arranged a big wool purchase on these terms and that Australia also had fixed wool exports under similar condi tions to several southeastern Euro pean countries, notably Greece and Hungary. The ministry of information’s foreign division was given a new director with the appointment of I. A. Kirkpatrick who acted as in terpreter for Prime Minister Cham berlain at his Godesberg confer ence with Adolf Hitler in 1938. Kirkpatrick succeeded E. H. Carr who resigned.

The reconnaissance machine landed safely at a home port. "Late in the afternoon of April 6, numerous enemy planes entered Germany by flying over Luxem bourg territory northwest of Trier and returned the same way.” War Increases Value Of American Exports WASHINGTON, April 7- — — Six months of war boosted the value of United States exports 33 per cent over 1938-39 levels, the Com merce department disclosed today, but caused notable shifts in the type and destination of American products. Trade trends mirrored such inter national policies as the British French eforts to conserve exchange, the blockade of Germany, abrogation of the United States-Japanese trade agreement and the 'eedom of arms sales under the American neutrality act. During the period from September 1939 through February 1940, Cana da and Latin America increased their purchases about 47 per cent each, Europe 27 and Asia 33. Eu rope, in spite of war-time trade re strictions, took 4'2 per cent of the total, ^ OBITUARIES JAMES LEE CLEWIS LUMBERTON, April 7.—Funeral services for James Lee Clewis, 64, former textile worker, who died Saturday were held this afternoon at 3:30 o’clock from the late resi dence.

New Orleans reported perfect weather, and some observers said the shadows of trees during the eclipse looked like “double expo sures” on a photographic film. That was an expected feature which probably was noticed in other places. The full, ring phase—known to astronomers as the annular phase— was visible where skies w-ere clear in an area about 75 miles both north and south of a center line which touched San Antonio, Tex., New Orleans, Pensacola, Tallahas see and Jacksonville, Fla. The rest of the United States and Canada saw a partial eclipse in which the moon covered varying amounts of the sun’s surface. In the annular phase, 93 per cent of the sun’s diameter was obscured. The light was about 100 times that of a full moon. Astronomers and physicists set up elaborate instruments throughout the path to study a wide range of scientific factors connected with solar rays. These rays can be studied only when the sun is in eclipse, because they are too intense for practically all instruments when the full solar power is on. The Chisos mountains in Texas w-ere the scene of an expedition to measure the intensity of rays com ing from the edge of the sun. THOUSANDS VIEW ECLIPSE NEW YORK, April 7. — C£>> — Crowding various points of vantage throughout the city Sunday, thou sands of New Yorkers observed a partial annular eclipse of the sun by the moon, which first became visible at 3:50 p. m. and reached its climax at 5:05 p. m. when 08 per cent of its surface was covered. As the partial phase of the black out occurred, the city took on the appearance of dusk or a very cloudy day. The eclipse itself was visible only to those persons equipped with dark glasses or a strip of over-ex posed film. Some 200 persons were gathered on the terrace of the Empire State building where Arthur Draper, as sistant curator of the Hayden planetarium gave a short lecture on the astronomical phenomenon. The National Broadcasting company televised the eclipse from the top of the RCA building, making it pos sible for some radio listeners to view the sight from their homes. GERMAN FREIGHTER STARTS TEST TRIP (Continued From Page One) merchantment against seizure in her waters. German shipping agents said, however, that if the ship gets through without interference, “many dozens” of German freighters would ply the route. They hinted that Ger many might get supplies through neutral territorial waters from points as far away as Russia's Black Sea oil ports. Yugoslavia was said to hold that bauxite is not a war material and therefore not subject to seizure, al though what she would do to up hold this view seemed uncertain. Britain contends that bauxite is a war material and therefore contra band. (Informed quarters in London said Friday that reports of German ship ping activity in the Adriatic were “greatly exaggerated” and that Britain would continue to exercise control over sea-borne war mate rials without giving the Germans ad vance notice of her plans of strate gy.) Only yesterday the Yugoslav freighter Dubac, bound for Italy, of ficially was reported seized by the British off the Greek coast and tak en to the contraband control base at Malta for examination. tour members Of family Are Drowned In Florida MIAMI, Fla., April 7.—UP)—Four members of a family were drowned today when their skidding automo bile plunged from a highway into a drainage canal.
