January 4 (/Pi.—'The United States neutrality course at- j tracted close European attention to day, with a general belief growing that if the Roosevelt administration re stricted exports of oil as a war ma terial. the League of Nations would follow suit. Interest in Washington’s action. 1 heightened by President Roosevelt's [ internationally broadcast message to the joint session of Congress last night and introduction of new neu trality measures, was increased further by a sense of a rapidly returning European crisis. Earlier Tension Quiet. The earlier tension, arising from I proposals for extension of League sanctions against naiy to mciuoe an oil-coal-iron-steel embargo, quited with the advance of the Franco British proposals for peace in Ethio pia. That plan for East African conces sions to the adjudged Italian aggres sors collapsed under the weight of ad verse public opinion, and the question of an oil embargo against Italy— involving the question of European peace—is to be revived at Geneva In about two weeks. Great Britain, a League leader, in j formed sources said, would be influ enced by the American attitude in determining its own stand on the controversial question. Rome Is Apprehensive. In Rome, where reliable sources had said denial to Italy of the oil supplies much needed by its mechan ized armies might spread the East African warfare to Europe, the ‘‘elas ticity” of the Roosevelt neutrality policy was regarded by some as its , most hopeful feature. Apprehension was expressed in in : formed Italian quarters, however, lest the American program in practice should be susceptible to the ‘‘influence of Great Britain and fanatical sanc tiontsts.” This view was reflected in a widely current Italian conviction that any extension of embargoes by the United > States, to stay out of war, would encourage the League of Nations, al ready applying other financial and economic penalties to Italy. The American neutrality moves also fell short of Italian hopes in another respect. Informed sources pointed out that iteration of American oil exports to rs tiOTia loi'olc nnHor rrvnoroccinna 1 I >rft/posals for permanent neutrality legislation, would supply Italy with *nly 6 per cent of its normal con sumption. Britain Hears Broadcast. The British public listened In on President Roosevelt’s annual message to the Congress with an anxious earnestness such as has not been given to any similar occasion since the World War year, 1918. Throughout the British Isles, cold and flooded in some sections by wintry rains, many sat up until 2 a.m. <9 p.m. Friday, E. S. T.) to hear the voice of the American President broadcast across the Atlantic. The British followed with particular interest Mr. Roosevelt’s references to American foreign policy, outlining a two-fold neutrality program—to ban American arms and ammunition to belligerents and to hold to normal peace-time exports shipments to war ring nations of all American products entering Into conduct of war. If the United States thus cqrtailed its shipments to Italy of oil, as an essential material for war-making, it was becoming generally recognized, the League of Nations—the Council or executive body of which meets in mid January—scarcely could hesitate longer. Should the United States restrict its oil exports, the Laborite Dally Herald said, "an oil embargo becomes a cer tain means of stopping the Ethiopian war.” “Should the League powers refuse to use similar means, they would be deliberately allowing continuation of the conflict,” the newspaper said. Course in Embryology. A course in embryology, offering two Illustrated lectures and four hours of laboratory weekly, beginning January 13, was announced today by the Agri culture Department Graduate School. Dr. Alice L. Brown, a graduate of the University of Kansas and Cornell, will instruct f Burroughs Association Ex presses Opposition to Re turn of Prohibition. Enactment of the Guyer bill, which would return prohibition to the Dis trict. was protested last night by the Burroughs' Citizens' Association. David A. Babp. president of the organization, declared enactment of the measure would deprive the Dis trict of about $1,700,000 in annual revenue. Paul E. Jamieson, chairman of the association's executive committee, was instructed to survey existing liquor control regulations with a view to suggesting improvements at the Feb ruary meeting. The organization also voted against any increase in Federal taxes until such time as the Federal Government decides to make a "fair and equitable" appropriation toward maintenance of Uie U1MI ILl. After hearing J. M. Jamieson, presi dent of the Fire Fighters' Association, tell of the difficulty in fighting the Post Office Department fire last month because of a lack of gas masks and other equipment, the association adopted a resolution urging an ap propriation by Congress for more fire fighting paraphernalia. Opposition to Corporation Couasel E. Barrett Prettvman's ruling that communism could be taught in Dis trict public schools was expressed in another resolution. Sound motion pictures, depicting development of the automobile, were shown, with F. .A. De FonteX in charge. Djalal i " (Continued From First Page ! call, but doubts were expressed about the dissatisfaction of King Riza with the settlement of that incident. The State Department pointed out that both the Federal Government and the State of Maryland have ex pressed regrets about that incident and the two policemen involved had been dismissed. It is difficult to con ceive. it was stated, what other form of apology could be expected from a government. In certain foreign diplomatic quar ters Minister Djalal's version was con sidered correct. It is true, it was pointed out, that Secretary Hull ex pressed publicly his regrets at the in cident, but at the same time the Sec retary of State gave a mild lecture to the foreign diplomats about not abus ing their immunity privileges. This form of apology, it is said, irked the Iranian sovereign, who desired an unqualified apology for the mishan dling of his representative in the United States by the Elkton police. Loses Job for Second Time. Yesterday Clayton L. Ellison, the Elkton constable, lost his job for the second time es a result of the arrest of the Persian Minister. Finding there was no person to re place Ellison in the third district, the Elkton Town Council reappointed him and then reconsidered and re scinaea its action. The Minister was arrested November 27 when It was alleged his automo bile was speeding through Elkton. Town Officer Jacob Biddle stopped the car and Ellison handcuffed the min ister. Both officers were dismissed. After Djalal had made a formal protest to the State Department in Washington, claiming diplomatic im munity, Oov. Harry W. Nice of Mary land extended the apology of the State and Secretary of State Cordell Hull expressed regret. Police Cars Disguised. London police cars are to be painted buff and other popular shades, Instead of the present dark blue. - " 1 1 * 111 11 1 Suburban Residents In the News Rev. and Mrs. Pfeiffer Return Home Today.

They likewise com mended the proposal for restricting trade with belligerents to normal levels. They added, however, that "there | are a number of provisions giving the President wide discretion whi^n we believe should be tightened." In this connection, they demanded that the mandatory arms embargo should apply at the outbreak of a war. Proposes Immediate Embargo. The administration bill proposed that the embargo on arms should gc into effect “uoon the outbreak or dur I ing the progress of any war" in which j the United States was not engaged. There was some disagreement ; among congressional students of the I neutrality problem over the vital sec tion of the administration bill dealing with trace m war materials outer j than outright munitions. The bill would require the °resi dent to apply curbs on finding that ' it was in the interests of neutrality | to prohibit more than normal exports 1 of such commodities. Pittman con tended this was a mandatory pro. vision. Some other Senators said they wanted to study it before committing themselves. Chairman McReynolds of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, who intro duced the bill with some changes, would give the President discretion in j this matter. Would Prevent Loans, j Other features of the adminlstra | tion's proposed legislation would: Prevent loans to belligerent gov ernments. except normal short term credits, if the President should find them desirable. Permissive power for the President to withdraw diplomatic protection to nationals doing business with belliger ents, and require them to operate at their own risk. In all. three neutrality measures j were introduced yesterday, two of ! which bore evidence of State Depart ment draftsmanship and approval. A i fourth bill was in the making. Co oh cnimKit fn BAAnmnlteh fha nnp_ poses outlined by the President—that of declining "to encourage the prose cution of war”—but in a variety of ways, thus presaging heated disputes in debate to come. Agree on Arms Ban. All the measures proposed a per manent mandatory prohibition against shipments of arms and munitions to warring nations to replace the exist ing temporary ban, but there the agreement on legislation to keep the United States out of foreign con flicts ended. A short truce after McReynolds of fered his bill in the House, Pittman introduced a bill also tagged as having administration backing. He said it would require the Executive to impose normal quota shipments on all belligerents if it was found that non-munitions purchases were being diverted to military uses. On such a discovery, the quota order would become mandatory, Pitt man said. However, other students of the measure said they felt it would give the President far greater leeway in imposing export quotas than Pittman contended. Involves One Word. The actual difference in the dis puted section of the two bills lay in a change of one word—‘he" substi tuted for "and." Later in the day. Representative Ludlow. Democrat, of Indiana, intro duced the most drastic bill of all. On the outbreak of war between foreign nations, it would forbid American ex ports or loans of any kind to them and like the rest would impose re strictions on Americans traveling on foreign vessels. The bill to be introduced Monday has been drafted by Senators Nye and Clark, Democrat, of Missouri. It would impose rigid mandatory pro visions on the Executive. Under its provisions when the President dis covered increasing exports of war ma terials. such as steel, copper and oil, to belligerents, he would be required to prohibit all but normal shipment as determined by a 5 or 10 year average. Agreement inuicairu. Even though there existed this wide breach over mandatory and discre tionary provisions, indications that an agreement might soon be reached was seen in the statement by Pittman that he expected the Foreign Relations Committee to report out his bill early next week to permit the Senate to act on it ‘ while there is nothing els; to do.” Similarly from Clark came the com ment that the Pittman measure "is a very great improvement over existing law. I don't look for much of a fight. Everybody is practically think ing along the same lines.” The Pittman, McReynolds and Nye bills agreed generally in many fea tures with the exception that the latter prohibited any American ship carrying produce to belligerent coun tries by providing that the purchasers must come to America, buy for cash or short-term credit, and take away their own stuff. Pittman denied to newspaper men a prevailing Impression that the Pres i ident and the State Department nnd I insisted upon wide discretionary pow ers in its neutrality-preserving func | tions. - • ■ ■ ■■ - PREVIEW OF PAGEANT A description of the pageant. ‘ The Winning of the West,” to be held at !
