MUSSOLINI HEADED FOR DESTRUCTION, IS BELIEF OF SEASONED DIPLOMATS Expedition Against Ethiopia Is Bad Gamble, Say Veteran Observers; See Italy Racing Madly Toward Complete Ruin. BY LID WELL DENNY Tim** Spinal Writer. WASHINGTON, Aujr. 28.—Mussolini in effect has de clared war :n advance on Great Britain or any nation which interferes in his Ethiopian conquest. He could not win such a war. “It should he realized without the possibility of mis understanding that whoever applies sanctions against Italy will he met by the armed hostility of our country,” II Duce has just declared in a British press interview. This belliger ent warning is his reply to the vast naval concentration and other war preparedness moves by Great Britain in the last 72 hours. It can mean only on** of two things: Either Italy nr Britain or both are bluffing or the danger of a major war between these two re cent allies is uncomfortably close. In the judgment of mast diplomats here neither Italy nor Britain is bluffing. More Madness than Reason London, it is said, is not alarmed by what Mussolini may do to Ethiopia or the League of Nations but fears for the safety of the Brit ish Empire itself. Italian ronquest in East Africa would jeopardize and pprhaps destroy the Mediterranean- Suez lifeline of the British colonies in Africa, the Near East, and Far East Why Is Mussolini willing to risk a fight with the mighty mistress of the seas? This is the question diplo mats are asking each other. There are plenty of answers, but none of them seems altogether convincing. After all of the plausible and not so-plausible excuses for Mussolini are recited, the experts still have thp suspicion that there is more madness than reason in his grew some gamble. This is true even if he comes to last-minute terms with the British, under which they will look the other way while he grabs half a loaf in Ethiopia. Here Are the Reasons Here are the •reasons" given for Mussolini's willingness to start an East African war. at the risk of finding Britain and possibly other League of Nations’ members arrayed against him: 1— Italian population pressure and the need for colonial outlets. 2 Ethiopia's unmeasured mineral riches, which would give Italy ma terials she now lacks for industrial ization and military power. 3 Italian victory would save Mussolini’s skin at home—the an cient ruse of slipping dictators to make the discontented people forget their 'roubles in an orgy of im perialistic patriotism. 4 Victory would raise Italy from a second to a first class naval-mili tary power, and thus increase Mus- ; solini’s strength in the European and world balance of power. Not Worth the Gamble At first glance these stakes may appear worth the gamble to those who —like the Italian dictator—have no scruples against war but rather glorify it. The international ex perts, however, doubt that it is a good gamble, even for a confirmed militarist. They point out: 1— Ethiopia is not suitable for large scalp white Mus solini can relieve more Italian popu lation pressure by ceasing his "more babies" campaign than by un suitable African emigration projects. A deal with France or Britain for some of their unsettled Near East ern territory would be less costly than an Ethiopian war and much more effective as a population measure. 2 Assuming that Ethiopia is as rich in minerals as reported but not proved. Italy has neither the large capital fund nor technical organiza tion to exploit those riches without foreign aid, which would prevent the desired Mussolini monopoly. Italy in Weak Condition 3 While it is admitted that Mus solini’s war preparations already have given Italy a shot in the arm —jobs for the unemployed, orders for the profiteers, and patriotism in place of incipient revolt —this infla tion dope soon wears off and leaves the victim a worse wreck. Italy is poor financially and weak industri ally. She is less ablp than any other large European country to with stand the collapse which customarily follows war. 4An Italian victory, far from in creasing her European and world power. would more likely weaken her to the point where she could no longer hold off Hitler penetration ot Austria or even stop invading Teu tonic Nazis at the Brenner Pass. An Italian victory in any event would destroy even the present partial European -*nitv and thus increase Hitler s power at the expense of all others, including Mussolini. All of these nightmares, which should be disturbing II Duces dreams of himself as another Caesar, give him the benefit of two very big doubts. They assume he can lick Ethiopia; and they assume ITS PURITY IS YOUR SAFETY either that Britain will back down or be defeated. But in tart few of these experts here think he can defeat either— not in the long run. He has a 50-50 chance of msking a last-minute deal with Britain that will leave him fairly free ;n Ethiopia. But if Bri tain closes the Suez and opens up on him with her Navy, he is through —he ran not send more troops and supplies to Ethiopia; he can not even bring home or save his troops already there. It is true that, if he buys off Bri tain. he has a moderate chance of initial military victory in Ethiopia. But it's not the first cost; it's the upkeep that counts. Military vic tories will only lead the Fascist legions deeper into the maddening attrition of guerilla warfare in the world's most hostile terrain for an invading modern army. There are no strategic centers to take and hold; once conquered, the vanishing black hordes will have to be conquered over and over again. The Ethiopians can iast indefinitely, even in chains as they have proved; but the white invaders, even in win ning battles far from home, can last only a little while. That is why Mussolini is apt to get more misery than gain out of his manufactured war. SECURITY ACT FUNDS LACKING McNutt Silent After Roosevelt Statement on Situation. (Continued From Page One) rected specifically at one-man fili busters such as Long conducted sev eral times since his entrance into the body. McNutt Is Silent Gov. Paul V. McNutt this after noon would make no comment on the situation created by the lack of Federal funds to carry out the President’s social security program. Informed that President Roose velt had declared no funds appear to be available to finance the Fed eral government's share of old-age pensions, Gov. McNutt would make no statement regarding the probable disposition of the huge surplus re maining in the state treasury at the end of the last fiscal year. The Governor had' said he in tended to apply most of the sur plus to financing the state's share of the enlarged obligations under the Federal old-age pension bill. Meanwhile Virgil Sheppard, gov ernmental research director of the Indianapolls Chamber of Commerce, made public a statement indicating a sp&cial session of the Indiana General Assembly will be necessary unless the Federal Social Security Board temporarily waives three con flicts in the present Indiana law r . Mr. Sheppard pointed out that the Federal old-age pension law provides for state administration or supervision of the administration of old-age pensions. Under present Mate laws this administration is in the hands of county commissioners. Uniform standards to be used throughout the state to determine the eligibility of applicants also must be established. Mr. Sheppard pointed out. A reduction of the 15 years state residence rule to five years residence in the past nine years must be made to conform to the Federal law. the Chamber of Commerce directors were told. Mr. Sheppard declared the new Federal law does not make it man datory to increase the maximum old age pension payments from sls, as the law now provides, to S3O. To ob tain sls Federal aid for each pen sioner. however. Mr. Sheppard said, grants must be at least S3O. The social security law does not set up an unemployment insurance plan for Indiana. Mr. Sheppard de clared. It practically compels In diana to establish such a plan, oth erwise the entire tax collected for the purpose would go into the Fed eral treasury and Indiana employes would not benefit. The insurance plan goes into ef fect Jan. 1. 1936. Mr. Sheppard de clared. A meeting of the Legisla ture will be necessary before th? state can adopt an unemployment insurance act, he said.

Eighteen others were charged with visiting and gaming. Judge Halts Arguments When the hearing opened before Judge Dewey Myers, Jacobs moved that the property taken in the raid, consisting chiefly of $712.25, be re turned to the defendants and that they be discharged. Paul Rochford, counsel for Sheriff Ray, objected, saying the men were not on trial on affidavits filed July 6. the date of the raid, but on affi davits sworn out June 15, and that the property was not under juris diction of the court. Judge Myers halted arguments, saying he would need time to study the law to know if he had jurisdic tion over the property. "If the court please,” said Jacobs. "I have 50 names against whom I wish to file gambling affidavits.” Go Ahead. Roars Ray "Why bring that in?” asked Sheriff Ray hotly. "That has noth ing to do with this case, has it?” • No.” replied Jacobs. "I hope you do file these affi davits.” the sheriff continued heat edly." I would be willing to pay you well if you would file these affidavits. And I would bring into this court some of the crooked dice that I ob tained in these gambling raids.” The court then fixed Sept. 10 as the date for trial and parties to the action left the courtroom.

Zionist Leaders Launch Bitter Attack on Nazis Demonstration of Protest Arranged for Tomorrow at Lucerne; Rabbi Wise Blasts at Hitler. By l iiifrrf Prr LUCERNE. Switzerland. Aug 28.—Presentation in the World Zionist Congress against German persecution of Jews erupted today in organiza tion of the representatives of 1.300.000 Jews throughout the world in a demonstration of protest tomorrow. Acting with the greatest unity since the right wing revisionist par ty bolted to form a rump conven tion, the Congress voted a half hol iday tomorrow in formal protest against Nazi persecutions. Rabbi Stephen S. Wise of New York and the venerable Dr. Chaim Weizmann, Congress president, led an attack on the Hitler government that was as frank in its wording as it was unexpected. ‘ We haven't met here to erect a wailing wall before which to recite our woes,” Rabbi Wise said. ‘‘This Congress is a Jewish world forum at which we present the Jewish case to the world, not that it may reach decisions for us, but that it may hear decisions reached by us. ‘‘ln terms of American slang, we are not asking the world, we are telling it. If this Congress ware to be silent on the German-Jewish question it might well be thought by the world that the situation is not so grave as we claimed, when in truth nothing could be more catastrophic.” He recommended as the only final solution for German-Jewish trou bles a strong national movement toward Palestine. ‘‘At the doors of Palestine Jews cease to be a problem and once more become Jews and men,” he said. Dr. Weizmann added: ‘‘The only dignified asswer we can make to the terrible accusations of the Third Reich against us is good, honest, free work in Palestine. This we are doing and no power on earth can stop us.” START WPA PROJECTS Three New Undertakings Begun in City; Employment Now 19,926.
