i Both Mentioned to Succeed
Morrow, Who Comes to
Senate Soon.
If The names of Senator George H.
Moses of New Hampshire and J. Reu
ben Clark, jr.. former Undersecretary of
State, were mentioned today as pos
sible successors to Dwight W. Morrow
as Ambassador to Mexico, following the
announcement from New Jersey that
Mr. Morrow is to occupy the seat re
if cently vacated by another Ambassador,
Walter E. Edge.
Senator Moses was absent from Wash
ington. Ills name has been mentioned
in connection with several diplomatic
posts now filled and it is known that
P he has refused to consider any work
which would take him out of the Sen
ate at this time. There were sugges
tions that pressure might be brought to
cause a change of mind.
I.arson Announcement a Surprise.
The announeemrnt of Gov. Larson
that Mr. Morrow would be appointed
to the Senate and then would run for
the* Republican nomination later ap
peared to have caught official Wash
ington very much off guard. State De
partment officials would not even admit
that Mr. Morrow would resign his Gov
ernment commission upon the comple
tion of his work at the London Arms
Conference. They met all inquiiies
with the statement that they knew
nothing of his intentions.
The name of Mr. Clark readily came
to mind in some official circles. He
has been in Mexico for several months
and is widely versed in Mexican ai
fairs, to which he gave particular at
tention while serving as Undersecre
b' tary to Frank B. Kellogg, Secretary of
The wide boundaries of the surprise
manifest in Washington with the pub
lication of Gov. Larsen's announcement
was attributed largely to the emphatic
manner in which Ambassador Morrow,
on a recent visit here, scotched then
prevalent rumors that he might enter
the New* Jersey senatorial race.
While his retirement from the diplo
j matie service will cause some reshift
ing in the foreign field, the candidacy
of the former partner in the Morgan
banking house in the New* Jersey sena
torial race next year aiay go a long
way toward clarifying the Republican
political situation in that State.
New Jersey G. O. P. Situation Clarified.
, Previous to the Larsen announcement
the Republican situation in New Jersey
was somewhat muddled. w r ith the pros
pect that there would be three candi
dates for the Republican nomination,
two generally regarded as the organiza
tion and the other an anti-organization
man, former Senator Joseph Freling
- huysen.
David Baird, jr., of Camden has been
« named to succeed Senator Edge, who
leaves soon for Paris to take over his
new duties, but he is to retire as soon
as Morrow can take the seat after the
London naval conference ends. It had
been expected that both Baird and
Representative Franklin D. Fort, a close
personal friend of the President, would
be candidates against Frelinghuysen.
Some of these familiar with the Re
publican situation in New Jersey in
terpreted the entry of Mr. Morrow into
the political field as presaging the re
tirement from the senatorial race of
both Mr. Baird and Mr. Fort.
When Ambassador Morrow was here
recently he regarded his work in Mexico
as far from completed, and so keen was
his desire to finish the job there that
he declined to consider appointment as
Secretary of State when Mr. Hoover
was selecting his cabinet. He was urged
for that place at the time by Ambas
sador, then Senator, Edge and many
other Republican leaders of New Jersey.

Control of Basic Raw Mate
rials Is Held Effective
Peace Measure.
Denial of Necessary Products
to Belligerent Nation Sug
gested to Avoid Conflicts.
By the Associated Press.
A proposal whereby industrial leadeis
of the world should enter Into a pact for
the permanent abolition of wars through
control of basic raw materials was sub
mitted by Edward N. Hurley, war-time
chairman of the United States
Board, in a letter teday to M. George/
Theunis of Brussels, president of the
International Chamber of Commerce.
Mr. Hurley explained, that through
control of the raw materials, by an
agreement between industrial leaders,
any belligerent nation could be denied
the necessary products to wage war.
These raw materials were listed as iron
ore, coal, rubber, manganese, nickel,
aluminum, petroleum, newsprint, tung
sten, chromium and mercury.
Has Faith in Suggestion.
“I am personally acquainted with
many of the industrial leaders who
could form such an organization,” Mr.
Hurley said. “I am satisfied that they
would judge this plan to be practicable
if it were presented properly for their
attention and study, and I am certain
that the motives of these men are such
that naturally they are inclined to de
vote their powers to the common good
of mankind. The only real obstacle to
the association of such men in a project
of this kind is their reluctance to enter
domestic political controversy.”
Mr. Hurley said he placed his pro
posal before the International Chamber
of Commerce because that body was
organized to express the views of busi
ness men upon world affairs and to pro
mote peace.
Declaring that no nation in the world
is self-sustaining for modem warfare,
Mr. Hurley cited that, “as all steel men
know, at one critical period in the World
War the United States had only a three
week supply of manganese ore. If the
four ships carrying supplies of this ore
from Brazil had been delayed by Ger
man submarine activity every steel
plant in America would have had to
shut down.”
Mr. Hurley said that the current pro
posals” for world peace have "laid
little or no emphasis upon the indus
trial methods for the prevention of
“It seems to me that in the present
state of technology and commerce, no
peace-preserving machinery can be
complete without some fowl of interna
tional control of raw materials.”
A roster of Industrial leaders was
given by Mr. Hurley, men who could
control the disposal of the raw ma
terials without which war cannot be
waged. The letter stated:
“Walter S. Teagle, president of the
Standard Oil Co. of New Jersey, and'
Sir Henri Deterding, managing director
of the Royal Dutch Schell Corporation
of Great Britain, can say whether auto
mobiles and airplanes shall continue to
move and whether the machinery of
the world shall continue to produce
goods or be stopped by friction.
John D. Ryap, chairman of the Ana
conda Copper Mining Co. of New York,
and E. Franque of Belgium, are in a
position to control the distribution of
that copper without an ample supply
of which the electric energy of any
country cannot be generated or dis
tributed effectively. Harvey Firestone
of the United States and H. Eric Miller,
managing director of Harrison’s &
Crossfield (British), command such
confidence among the men who produce
and manufacture rubber that they can
mobilize that industry in the cause of
war prevention.
“The modern world Is energized over
copper wires and is moving more and
more on rubber. Yet it is a world in 1
which energy must still be generated
from coal: and the energy must be har
nessed by machines made of steel. Coal
and. iron are far more widely distrib
uted than copper, oil and rubber.
Names Steel Leaders.
“The allotment of steel to the nations
of the world could be determined very
largely by concert of such men as
these: For the United States—James A.
Farrell, president of the United States
Steel Corporation: Charles M. Schwab,
chairman of the Bethlehem Steel Cor
poration: Willis L. King, vice president
of the Jones & Laughlin Steel Corpo
ration; James A. Campbell, president
of the Youngstown Sheet & Tube Co
For Great Britain—Sir Hugh Bell,
Rounton Grange and Sir Arthur J.
Dorman of Dorman, Long & Co.: Sir
Robert A. Hadfield. chairman of Had
flelds. Ltd. For Germany—Dr. Albert
Vogler. general director of Verein
Deutscher ELsenhutten Leute; Dr. Fritz
Thyssen of the Stahlwerks Verband.
For Belgium—Jacques Van Hoegarden,
managing director Societe Anonvme

gene Schneider of Schneider & Co.:
Francois de Wendel. manager of de
Wendel et Cie; Alexander Dreaux. pres
ident of the Societe des Acieries de
“The technical genius of Italian en
gineers and industrialists is such that
business leaders of Italv would have
an important part in the control of
steel and all ferrous materials despite
the fact that Italy is not richly endowed
with the raw materials of these in
dustries. Her importance as a con
sumer and fabricator •would make it
necessary for such men as Alberto
Pirelli (former president of the Inter
national Chamber of Commerce) and
Count Giuseppe Volpi (former minister
of finance) to lend their influence in
any plan for co-ordinating the metal
lurgical industries.
Could Control Chemicals.
“The chemical industries of the world
could be mobilized for world peace by
business control if a few men like Pierre
S. du Pont of the United States, Dr.
Carl Bosch and Dr. August Diehn
of Germany, Lord Melchett and Sir
William Alexander Barta of Great j
Britain and M. Donat-Agache of
France got together and determined to
do it.
“The strategic position of the chemi
cal industries with respect to war
making and peace maintenance Is
somewhat similar to that of the gigantic
enterprises which provide the world’s
workshops with electrical energy. Any
nation deprived of free access to the
methods and machinery which are the
fruits of their research would be abso
lutely handicapped.
Such men as Owen D. Young, chair
man of the board of the General Elec

General Motors Research Corporation,
and A. W. Robinsom chairman of the
board of the Westingnouse Electric Co.,
could bring about not only sentiment
but constructive action toward mobili
zation of electrical enterprise for the
abatement of war.
“There are other materials without
which modern warfare cannot be waged.
The volume of them is altogether out
of proportion with the paralyzing effect
that their withholding would produce.”

volved today following Federal prohi
bition raids upon the home of Anton
Rench, the village mayor.
Numerous complaints concerning con
ditions in Stickney led to an investiga
tion by agents under Edison Smith,
deputy dry administrator. This culmi
nated in the raid Saturday night upon
the Rench home, also known as La
Ruth Bungalow.
Several barrels of beer and a quan
tity of gin, whisky and wine were seized
and Mrs. Rench, wife of the mayor, who
said she was in charge of the road
house, was held in custody until the
village mayor pledged the appearance
at the Federal building today of both
himself and his wife.
Rench, former chief of police in
Stickney, has had an Involved political
career. A year ago he was announced
the winner over Edward .HAbella in the
race for village president. Then County
Judge Edmund K. Jareckle declared
Kabella the winner in an election con
test recount. Rench, however, contin
ued in offlce pending an appeal.
About a year and a half ago Rench
was indicted for election frauds, along
with the two Capones. “Scarface Al"
and his brother Ralph. These, however,
were later dismissed.
Electrifying all the main railway
lines of England would mean an annual
saving of more than 11,000,000 tons of
coal a year, according to an expert, who
puts the saving between coal ajnd elee
