ADEQUATE DEFENSE
URGED BY RITCHIE
Governor Emphasizes War
Threats in Opening Maryland
Bicentennial Exercises.
■y the Associated Press.
BALTIMORE. February 11.—Gov.
Albert C. Ritchie today called on the
United States to maintain adequate
armed Torres to protect the Nation in
the face of a world giving every Indi
cation of preparing for another war.
Standing at the foot of the first
monument erected in nonor of George
Washington, the Maryland executive
and Democratic presidential possibility
issued his plea over a Nation-wide radio
system, in opening Maryland's celebra
tion of the Washington Bicentennial.
Declaring that the armed forces of
the Nation now ars far below the pro
visions of the National Defense act, he
pleaded not to weaken them further.
Wants Assurance of Safety.
“A military system adequate for our
national defense threatens nobody, but
it does assure safety to our people and
our possessions, due regard for our self
respect and neutrality and our effec
tiveness as a factor for world peace." he
said.
"If any one doubts the need of an
adequate Navy let him remember the
World War could not have been won
without the British and American
fleets. Let him look to the Far East
and wonder if tomorrow or the day
after the lives and safety of Americans
may not rest solely on Bluejackets to
protect them.
‘ Our Army is at an irreducible mini
mum, far below that provided by law.
Is not this little enough in this human
world, marked not alone in both men
and nations by human virtues, but by
human faults and weaknesses as well,
and in which governments are only
mortals in power, often impelled by
over-vaulting ambitions for themselves
or for thdr countries?
Favor* General Disarmament.
“By all means let the nations of the
world meet at Geneva to consider gen
eral disarmament. Let our representa
tives there find out on what theory
European countries think they cannot
afford to pay their just debts to us
while they rah afford to pay huge sums
on armaments which are an economic
drain on them and an incentive to fu
ture wars.
"We see a world which has just
emiged from the most destructive war
in its history giving every indication
of preparing for another one.
"We should not encourage those who
would have the United States disarm
further as an incentive to other nations
to follow our example. I see little to
convince me other nations would do
so and we live in times too dangerous
to try that experiment.
"There is no place for economy at
the expense of maintenance of a
thoroughly adequate national defense
policy. Let the Government stay out
of the fields of private business where
it should not be, and save the millions
it spends yearly there. Let the Gov
ernment remember that the national
defense is public business and must
have what the protection of cur people
and our rights require.”

ROOSEVELT RULE
PROBE IS VOTED
Republican Senate Asks for
Investigation of Governor’s
Administration.
_ i
By the Associated Press.
ALBANY, N. Y.. February 11.—The
Republican Senate of New York State
has passed a resolution to investigate
the Democratic State administration,
headed by Gov. Franklin D. Roosevelt,
presidential candidate.
In a surprise move last night the
majority party brushed aside Demo
cratic opposition and put through the
resolution for a thoroughgoing inquiry
into every department and subdivision
of the State government. Not a single
branch or agency of the complex gov
ernmental system would escape scru
tiny.
Introduced over the name of Charles
D. Hewitt, chairman of the Finance
Committee, the resolution was patterned
after that by which the Legislature
last year launched its investigation into
the Democratic administration of New
York City.
Passage in House Expected.
After its passage by a strictly party
vote, 27 to 21, the measure was sent to
the Assembly, where, again with Re
publican guidance, its passage was con
sidered certain.
The investigating body of five Re
publicans would be permitted to push
its work through the Summer and
i Fall—well into the national campaign
of the forces which hope to nominate
and elect Roosevelt to the presidency.
The inquiry also wo: 'd be continued,
under provisions of the measure, dur
ing the State pre-election campaign.
It would be financed by an appro
priation of $25,000.
Declared Election Ammunition.
Undertaken ostensibly to find out
why State budget obligations for the
coming year should amount to $301,
000.000. the resolution was branded
by a Democratic Senator. William T.
Byrne of Albany, as purely an attempt
to find "ammunition for the cam
paigns—State and national—In 1932.”
The approved budget measure was
only a few minutes old when the reso
lution was introduced. The budget was
passed in its reduced form late in the
day.
SCHOOL BOARD BILL
IS REINTRODUCED
House Measure Asking Elections
Calls Appointive Method
“Unamerican.'’
Declaring the present method of
having members of the Board of Edu
cation of the District of Columbia ap
pointed by the Supreme Court is "un
American.” Representative Allard H.
Gasque. Democrat, of South Carolina,
reintroduced his elective School Board
bill in the House late yesterday.
This new bill includes a provision
from the old Zihlman bill considered
several years ago. under which any cit
izen over 21 years of age living in the
District of Columbia, whether or not
he maintained a legal residence else
where. would be qualified to vote for
candidates for the Board of Education.
The Senate and House District Com
mittees have been flooded with resolu
tions adopted by citizens’ associations
and many organizations particularly
interested in the schools in opposition
to the elective School Board bill.
The provision in the new Gasque bill
covering qualiflcatin of voters is as
follows:
"Any citizen of the United States,
21 years or over, without regard to sex.
who is not an insane person nor An
idiot, nor a person convicted of a fel
ony, shall be qualified to vote in any
school election in the District of Co
lumbia. if he has resided in the District
of Columbia for a period of at least
cne year immediately preceding the
date of the election, irrespective of
whether he has maintained a legal
residence in a place other than the
District of Columbia during such
period."

TAMMANY SPLIT
Elements Supporting Smith,
Roosevelt and Walker Give
Rise to Specuation.
(Cotyrtiht. 1MJ. by the Associated Pre*s>.
NEW YORK, February 11.—'Tam
many Hall, which traditionally goes
into political battles with a united
front, is at present spilt three ways
as the Democratic National Convention
approaches.
New York State will cast 94 votes
when the balloting for a presidential
nominee begins in Chicago, and 48 of
these delegates will be from New York
city. , . ,
Normally Tammany controls most oi
these 48, but the political observers
believe as things now stand, that no
one candidate can count on even a
majority of this bloc on the first ballot.
Roosevelt Has Following.
Gov. Franklin D. Roosevelt has
aroused the ire of many Tammany
leaders by not squelching the Hof
stadter Legislative Committee’s investi
gation into the Tammany municipal
government. Nevertheless, he has a
sizable following in the organization.
His campaign manager, James A.
Farley, chairman of the Democratic
State Committee, Is a Tammany man
and his his own supporters within the
organization.
John F. Curry. Tammany leader. Is a
personal friend of the Governor, but
he has not yet Indicated whether he
will support Roosevelt.
Alfred E. Smith. Tammany’s ’’happy
warrior.” has his following, too, but
it is not an organized bloc. So far
not a Tammany chieftain has publicly
commented upon Smith's announce
ment.
The third bloc Is the one which
swears allegiance to Mavor James J.
Walker.
Mayor Looms Large.
The mayor looms large on the Tam
many horizon. He heads an army of
130.000 city employes and controls ex
tensive Tammany patronage. He will
have much to say about which presi
dential aspirant is to get a large per
centage of New York City’s votes In the
convention.
Welker and Roosevelt have been at
swords’ points since the investigation
of the Walker government began. Some
indication of the feeling between them
was seen in the mayor's failure to greet
the Governor as he filed past him at
the funeral of John R. Voorhis, Tam
many grand sachem. Monday. Like
wise it is no secret that Walker and
Smith are no longer close political
friends. It is considered unlikely that
Walker will throw the support of his
Tammany followers to Smith.
The mayor refused to comment yes
terday on a report that in the event
of a Smith-Roosevelt deadlock at the
convention, the Tammany delegates
would advance him as a vice presiden
tial candidate, to run with a presiden
tial aspirant from the West or South.
The speculation was given little
credence in political circles here.
Another report was that John W.
Davis might be put up as a compromise
New York candidate if the convention
should become deadlocked.
Wants to Keep Grip.
It was said the real significance of
the Walker report was that he is at
temptinug to keep as firm a grip as
possible on the New York City dele
gates. with the idea of not pledging
their support to any candidate until
the convention—or shortly before.
Tammany Hall exists officially only
in the Borough of Manhattan and tech
nically controls only 22 of the 48 New
York City delegates, but in the past the
leaders in the four other boroughs gen
erally have followed Tammany’s lead.
This time, however, the Democratic
leader in the Bronx is Edward J. Flynn,
Roosevelt's secretary of State, and it is
considered likely the six Bronx votes
will go to the Governor on the first
ballot, regardless of Tammany's posi
tion.
In Brooklyn, which has 18 delegates,
John H. McCoey. who has been a wit
ness before the Hofstadter Committee,
is the Democratic leader. He has not
committed himself.
Tammany's attitude on the nomina
tion question is likely to be Influenced
tp some extent by whether the Gov
ernor sumn-arily orders the removal of
Sheriff James M. Farley, a Tammany
leader, in accordance with the demand
of the Hofstadter Committee. Roose
velt's decision is expected within a few
days.
Meanwhile. Tammany is in the un
usual position of being a divided house,
but the Tammany Tiger is an astute
political animal and old-time observers
have said that while its fur may bristle
now June may find it purring.

SMITH AND RASKOB
VISITED BY BYRD
Former Virginia Governor
Says Call Was in Interests
of National Committee.
By the Associated Press.
NEW YORK. February 11.—Former
Gov. Harry F. Byrd, recently Indorsed
by the General Assembly of Virginia
as Democratic presidential candidate,
called on Alfred E. Smith and John J.
Raskob today—not as a candidate, he
said, but as vice chairman of the Dem
ocratic National Committee.
Asked about his own candidacy. Byrd
pointed out that the Virginia Assembly
had unanimously adopted a resolution
announcing its support of him, and
said his friends had started an active
organization on his behalf in Richmond.
Byrd to Speak in Kentucky.
Byrd said he was going to Kentucky
next week to address the Legislature,
but he did not say what his subject was
to be or whether his visit had any
political significance.
Byrd arrived in New York early this
morning and, after breakfast at the
home of Col. Henry Breckinridge, As
sistant Secretary of War under Wil
son, went immediately to the Empire
State Building, where former Gov
Smith, who has announced that he will
accept the Democratic presidential
nomination if it is offered him. and
Raskob. chairman of the Democratic
National Committee, have their offices.
Declared “Courtesy Calls.”
He called on Smith first and then
on Raskob. Col. Breckinridge pointed
out that the visits were purely "courtesy
calls," as vice chairman of the na
tional committee.
Byrd said his call on Raskob was
for the purpose of discussing arrange
ments for the national convention in
Chicago in June.
Later Byrd was guest of honor at a
luncheon given by Col. Breckinridge,
who said the affair had no political
significance whatever, and that neither
Raskob nor Smith was to be there.
Col. Breckinridge said Byrd would
leave for Virginia on a midnight train
tonight.
HOOVER OPPOSES
BUSINESS ‘TRUCE’
Tells Industrialists Their Proposal
Would Violate Anti
Trust Laws.
A group of nearly 100 industrialists,
who have been meeting in Washington
since yesterday, called at the White
House today to enlist President Hoo
ver's support for proposed legislation
that would make possible the two-year
truce in destructive business competi
tion and the maintenance of price
schedules The President reminded his
callers that their proposal suggested the
violation of the anti-trust laws and
suggested they return to their meeting
and give more mature thought to the
proposition.
As spokesman for the industrial
group. Malcolm D Whitman of Massa
chusetts told the President the strug
gle for existence on the part of indus
trialists has become so serious that de
structive competition is lowering wages,
prices and the earnings of industry.
He declared this condition threatens
the welfare of every business and every
worker so seriously that a national
emergency exists. In trying to work out
some plan to relieve the situation, the
industrialists called their meeting
which started yesterday in Washington.
"To make such a competition truce
effective.” Mr. Whitman told the Pres
ident. "the impulse must be so wide
spread and so deeply imbued with the
thought of the common good as to im
pose upon each individual an obliga
tion comparable to a patriotic call in
time of war.”

Shouse Draws Comment
National Chairman’s "Neutrality” Almost Unani
mously Held Direct Move to Stop
Roosevelt for Smith.
I
By the Associated Press
Widespread editorial comment was
made yesterday on the statement by
Jouett Shouse, chairman of the Demo
cratic National Executive Committee,
to the Associated Prers that the party’s
national headquarter:, was maintaining
strict impartiality in the pre-conven
tion campaigns of various contenders
for the presidential nomination, and
that he personally favored sending of
uninstructed delegations to the con
vention.
St. Paul, Minn., Dispatch (independ
ent) : The statement Is calculated to
answer the charge Mr. Shouse is try
ing to block the nomination of Gov.
Roosevelt. There is a grain of genu
ine wisdom in his reasoning, but it
does not have enough weight to nullify
the right of the rank and file of the
party to a voice in the decision.
Minneapolis Tribune (Republican)—
One has reason to suspect that what
Mr. Shouse fears more than anything
is a convention deadlock over two out
standing men, w’ith the possibility a
weaker candidate might win the nomi
nation in a compromise move. As a
friend of Mr. Smith he has every rea
son to assume that an uninstructed
convention would make the nomination
of his friend a great deal easier.
Unit Rule Opposed.
Austin (Tex.) American (Demo
cratic)—Really uninstructed delega
tions from all States, the delegates to
be high-minded and patriotic Demo
crats. would work wonders In the mak
ing of a platform and the naming of a
presidential standard bearer. Delegates
nog-tied under the unit rule are dele
gates as dumb as wooden Indians.
Helena (Mont.) Record-Herald (Re
publican)—Sighting the storm clouds
that are gathering to break at the
Democratic National Convention, Jouett
Shouse is the latest leader to come for
ward with a plea for unpledged dele
gations. when he well knows that bor
ders almost upon the Impossible. He
avers he is neutral, which is just an
other way of side-stepping inevitable
trouble.
Albuquerque IS. M.) Journal (inde
pendent)—Roosevelt is the only candi
date who might obtain control of the
convention. Shouse's statement, on top
of that of Smith, indicates the des
perate methods Roosevelt opposition is
taking to head him off.
Cheyenne Wyoming State Tribune
Leader (Republican)- Jouett Shouse's
interpretation of his expressed wish for
a Democratic National Convention com
posed of delegates unpledged in ad
vance to any candidate as "complete
impartiality'' falls on the ears of sup
porters of Franklin D Roosevelt as
"reverse English” and the echo they
hear is "Smith.”
Field Should Be Onen.
St. Louis Post-Dispatch (Independent
Democrat) —It might very well happen
that the favorite of today might not be
the logical choice of an unpledged con
vention four months from now. It is
conceivable at least that the man of
the hour may appear in the meantime
* * * A national convention charged
with the high duty of nominating a
President, ought to be a fair field where
the best man wins
unio .M2te Journal iColumbus, Re
publican)—In denying the existence of
anv attempt to keep Franklin D. Roose
velt from obtaining the Democratic
i presidential nomination. Jouett Shouse
t has indicated the opposite prettv plain
ily His explanation is too detailed.
( “. * * The Raskob-Smith-Shouse com
bination to stop Roosevelt is too ap
parent to be denied away.
Seattle Times (Republican)—It is an
interesting coincidence that on the day
Mr. Shouse was urging an-open-minded
and untrammeled convention. Mr
Raskob. chairman of the Democratic
National Committee, declared his neu
trality as to the various candidates
* * * The Democratic party is under
heavy financial obligations to Mr
Raskob. * * • It is evident Mr.
Shouse does not purpose to bite the
hand that writes the checks.
Clovis / (N. Mex.) News-Journal
(Democratic)—Pledged votes often
create blocs with resultant rivalry that
clouds sane judgment.
Neutrality is Doubted.
San Francisco Chronicle (Republican)
—Jouett Shouse's insistence on unin
structed delegates looks hard to explain
to the Roosevelt cohorts as anything but
a move in the interest of Alfred E
Smith’s candidacy. * * * Mr. Shouse
protests that he Is neutral. The Roose
velt forces are likely to say he protests
too much. They can hardly view as
friendly, or even neutral, a suggestion
that they throw away the lead they
have so laboriously piled up.
Oklahoma City Times (Democratic):
It is difficult to avoid the conclusion
that Shouse. who was hired by Raskob,
is hand in glove with Raskob and Smith
in the movement to thwart Franklin D.
Roosevelt.
Baltimore Sun (Democratic): It
I
would be better, every one will agree
If It were possible for uninstructed'
delegates of the finest type Tom M?
Shouse would have the States send to
Hje ”, 1:?a convention, could meet
the Monday before the election In
November to select the presidential
candidate. Instead of next June • • *
But Mr. Shouse In his high-minded
way has done the best that is prac
ticable in calling for uninstructed dele
gates to meet In the coming June. And
we shall be grievously disappointed If
any of the friends of Mr. Roosevelt
profess to see in his exalted policy any
thing remotely resembling a device to
strip him of delegates.
Memphis, Tenn., Commercial Appeal
(Democrat): The conventions are
much more representative of all mem
bers of the party than the few chosen
delegates can be. If the Shouse idea
should be adopted the whole future of
the party would be placed in the hands
of considerably less than the 1,100 or
more delegates to the national con
vention.
opposes Long Campaigns.
..Worcester, Mass., Telegram (Republi
can) : Chairman Shouse • * • brings
to public attention the fact that the
present system of presidential nomina
tions Is far from being perfectly satis
factory. * • ♦ campaigns begin months,
sometimes a year or more, bofore the
conventions meet. These early cam
paigns are necessarily made without
knowledge of what conditions will be,
what the Issues will be or what candi
dates will the better meet the various
requirements. The national conven
tions are partly conventions and partly
direct primaries. This not only causes
a certain amount of confusion, but it
also spreads the whole presidential
campaign over too long a period
Roanoke (Va.) World-New*: Mr.
Shouse makes out a strong case for
himself. His declaration for a conven
tion unfettered by promises or Instruc
tions will be regarded in certain quar
ters as a declaration for a convention
in which the leaders may dicker and
trade among themselves, the great body
of delegates representing just so many
pawns in the game, to be moved about
as the leaders decide. But in other
quarters a more friendly construction
will be put upon it and there will be
support for his view that the nomina
tion should not be foreclosed In ad
vance of the convention and that the
delegates should have something more
to do when they get to Chicago than
merely to ratify a decision reached
months before the date of the con
vention.
Nebraska State Journal (Lincoln),
(Independent Republican!: What he
wants is a convention of delegates free
to act. A convention that may be
swept into impulsive action without the
hindrance of instruction anchorage—a

BOOM FOR GARNER
GATHERING FORCE
Speaker Refrains From Ex
pression, but Friends Plan
Formidable Action.
By the Asaocisted Press.
The ‘■Gamer-for-President" move
ment atlll lacks any expression from
the Speaker of the House, but his
friends among the Representatives are
getting together now and again on
ways of speeding it along.
Before the month is out it may take
even more formidable form. The call
of a rally at San Antonio for Febru
ary 22 to begin a campaign for Garner
is seen here as offering possibilities :
for broader activity.
The San Antonio-meeting was called
by Mayor C. M. Chambers and Harry
P. Hornby, editor of a paper in Gar
ner’s home town of Uvalde. Later an
other rally will be held in Dallas to 1
round up North Texas support.
Southerners Interested.
House members from Southern States,
including Alabama and North Carolina,
and from the North, including Indiana.
New York. Missouri, New Jersey and
from New England, have manifested
substantial interest In their Speakers
possibilities.
Gamer also has received overtures
from many States, especially from the
Northwest and Pacific Coast. Some
representatives of big Eastern business
and banking interests have called to
look him over and to guage him and.
incidentally, to find out if he is a can
didate.
The Texan remains silent, but has
made it clear to visitors that he will not
become a party to the movement to stop
the candidacy of Gov. Franklin D
Roosevelt of New York.
Busy Kunning House.
Asked about his candidacy, Gamer
said:
"My job Is running the House, and
I’m going to do my best to do a good
job. I have nothing to say, and that’s
all there is to it.”
Garner said he intended to confine
himself to his House duties, particularly
toward reducing Government expendi
tures and In helping to raise enough
revenue to balance the Federal budget j
as soon as possible.
