Restriction of Operations
to Certain Area Is
Refused.
BACKGROUND—
Since America, Great Britain and
France signed the 1936 naval treaty
they have been watching closely to
see just what Japan, a non-signer,
intended to do with regard to in
creasing the size of her navy. Japan
now has refused to disclose whether
she has exceeded or intends to ex
ceed 35.000 tons in her battleships,
the limit fixed by the 1936 treaty.
By the Associated Press.
The House Naval Committee re
fused today to restrict the Navy's op
erations in the Pacific and Atlantic
Oceans to a definite area.
Chairman Vinson announced the
committee had voted, 16 to 6, against
an amendment by Representative
Kniffin, Democrat, of Ohio, which
would have established a definite
naval frontier beyond which the Navy
would not be permitted to operate.
The defense line Mr. Kniffin pro
posed would have extended from the
Western tip of the Aleutian Islands
to Midway Island in the Hawaiian
group, thence to American Guam,
Panama, the Virgin Islands in the
Atlantic and north to the easternmost
extremity of Maine.
Another Amendment Rejected.
In rejecting Representative Knlf
fln’s proposal, Mr. Vinson said the
committee also turned down another
amendment by Representative Sut
phin. Democrat, of New Jersey, which
would have required withdrawal of
all American warships from Chinese
waters, including the Yangtze River
patrol.
Chairman Vinson said a vote would
be taken tomorrow on a policy amend
ment he offered, which would estab
lish a policy of non-aggression for the
fleet, but commit the United States
to maintaining a Navy strong enough
to protect both the Atlantic and
Pacific coasts from simultaneous at
tacks.
The chairman said he expected the
committee to complete consideration
of the $1,171,000,000 naval expansion
program tomorrow.
The present London consultations
among the United States, Britain and
France, officials said today, will clear
the way for Germany and Russia to
build larger warships.
The results of the consultations,
which were regarded here as certain
to abandon the 35.000-ton limit on
battleships and the 8.000-ton limit on
cruisers, will be communicated to Ger
many and Russia by Britain.
This is by virtue of the naval treaties
Great Britain has with those two na
tions.
The first treaty, which limits the
German Navy to 35 per cent of the
British Navy, also contains a qualita
tive clause limiting the size of battle
ships to 35,000 tons. The Russian
treaty is more vague because Soviet
officials will not discuss any limitation
of their Asiatic fleet.
Italy May Build.
Italy also can build bigger ships.
Bound by no pacts, she is the freest
large nation in Europe as far as treaty
limitations are concerned. Britain
and France are bound, together with
the United States, by the treaty of
1936.

ing undivided responsibility and ef
ficient management in the hands of
the Chief Executive?" Mr. Walsh in
quired.
If independence from executive con
trol is the goal, he said, this could be
accomplished by giving the commis
sion 15-year terms. He denied, how
ever, the claim of advocates that the
bill would prevent presidential removal
of the administrator. The omission of
specific power to remove does not put
the administrator beyond presidential
removal or make his 15-year team se
cure, Mr. Walsh contended, citing
court decisions. Loss of the commis
sion does away with bi-partisanship,
he pointed out.
The arguments used to justify one
man civil service rule would apply
with equal force to the Social Security
Act or to a number of other agencies
for which Congress has boards or
commissions, the Massachusetts Sena
tor declared.
In opposing the Advisory Board,
Senator Walsh explained the com
mission already has a council of
personnel administration, through
which the 10 executive departments
and independent agencies co-operate
with it on personnel problems.
For several hours yesterday after
noon Senator Byrd, of Virginia, Demo
crat, and leading opponent of the bill
in its present form, exchanged argu
ments with several supporters of the
measure over the relative merits of
the present and proposed Federal ac
counting systems.
McCarl’s Supervision Defended.
The Virginian battled for reten
tion of the General Accounting Office,
and defended the supervision of that
office by former Controller General
J. R. McCarl. senator Byrd admitted
the contention of the proponents that
the G. A. O. makes a pre-audit only
when a department requests a ruling
in advance, and that only a small
percentage of disbursements are pre
audited.
The Virginian, however, added:
"The real power, as I have said, is
In the pre-examination which is per
mitted by the Controller General and
which is denied in the pending bill,
because there cannot be any audit of
any funds under the pending bill by
the auditor general except as a ppst
audit, after the money has been spent.”
Virtues Claimed for Plan.
Senators Byrnes of South Carolina
and Schwellenbach of Washington,1
Democrats, interrupted Senator Byrd’s
speech to take issue with his conten
tions and to stress their belief in the
superiority of the new plan, under
which current accounting would be
vested in the Burget Bureau, with a
post-audit and report to Congress by
, the independent auditor general’s
office.
Senator Schwellenbach insisted the
new plan is in accord with the ac
cepted system of accounting in the
private business world. He argued
it is a mistake to have the same
agency give preliminary opinions on
current expenditures and also make
the post audit of those expenditures.

Bombings Figure in Debate
Over Drastic Mobilization
Legislation.
By the Associated Press.
TOKIO, March 2.—Japan’s ever
present fear of air raids on her
closely-packed cities in "the next war”
figured heavily today in excited
parliamentary debate over the govern
ment’s drastic national mobilization
bill.
Defending the measure, which
Parliament members have attacked as
dictatorial and Fascistic, Maj. Gen.
Isamu Yokoyama declared: r
“In the next war Japan will suffer
air raids. It is quite possible that the
Diet (Parliament) could not be con
vened because of destruction of rail
roads and highways following an
enemy raid.”
The general said that because of
this danger, the law was neoessary
as an emergency instrument through
which the nation instantly could be
placed on a war footing.
Wide Control Provided.
In general, the bill would give the
government wide control powers over
Japan's business life, even to the
extent that it could "expropriate sub
jects of the empire and cause them to
be engaged in a general mobilization
of business.”
Only a week ago Chinese planes
bombarded the Japanese Island of
Formosa and on the next day air
alarms were sounded in Japan proper,
warning of the approach of raiders
who did not appear.
Premier Prince Fumimaro Konoye
made his first appearance in Parlia
ment since his cabinet and lawmakers
moved into a bitter deadlock over the
war control measure, and met a
withering fire of questions from mem
bers.
One Diet member told the Premier
that the people, fearful of losing their
constitutional rights, were "struck
with terror" when they saw the bill.
"Unrest is now prevailing through
out Japan,” he said.
Does Not Aim at Dictatorship.
The Premier acknowledged that
similar foreign legislation had been
studied, but said the proposed law
"does not aim at a dictatorship” in
Japan.
“It was formulated after careful in
vestigation, taking the merits and
abandoning the demerits of foreign
laws in order to suit Japan's particular
situation,” he explained.
•“It would be premature to regard it
as Fascism because the Japanese na
tional policy is so remote from those of
Italy and Germany.”
Diet observers found a possible me
dium of compromise in the Premier's
remarks about a proposed national
mobilization council.
The power to declare a state of
emergency necessitating the national
mobilization provided in the bill would
rest with the council. The Premier
explained that the majority of council
seats would be occupied by Diet mem
bers.
CHANGES POSITIONS
John J. Co: son Made Acting Chief
of Old-Age Insurance.
John J. Corson, 3d, who has been
assistant executive director of the
Social Security Board since its estab
lishment, has been designated as act

Insurance.
He is succeeding LeRoy Hodges, who
resigned to become controller for the
State of Virginia.
LOS ANGELES HIT
BY NEW DELUGE
Streets Run With Water,
Homes Threatened,
Walls Collapse.
By the Associated Press.
LOS ANGELES, March 2—A new
rainstorm created flood conditions in
Los Angeles County from the moun
tains fo the sea today, marooning
homes, washing out roads and filling
control dams to capacity.
! In downtown Los Angeles store
fronts were sandbagged for protection
as streets ran curb-full with water.
Lifeguard boats were requested for a
southwest district of the city, inun
dated to depts of four and five feet.
Collapsed retaining walls and land
slides were reported at many points,
one slide burying eight garages in mud.
Fifty houses in Topanga Canyon were
threatened by the storm run-ofl. Oc
cupants were trapped in the canyon
by a road washout.
Los Angeles was drying out from
three days of continual rain when the
new storm broke last night. Nearly
2 Inches of precipitation fell before
dawn.
In the unceasing downpour, Holly
wood firemen hurried to save a *20,
000 home from sliding down a hill
behind the Trocadero cafe. A lake
had formed back of the home and the
foundations were being washed away.
Other residences on the same street,
North Belfast, also were imperiled.
The pelting rain continued as work
aday folk struggled to get to offices and
shops over streets that were surging
rivers.

and 90 ordinary spectators who were
lucky enough to find available seats.
Mr. Niemoeller entered the court
room exactly at noon. Smiling broad
ly, evidently sure of himself, he
slapped one of his attorneys on the
shoulder.
The court entered at 12:05 p.m..
with the presiding judge saying "I
once more give the floor to the Defend
ant Niemoeller.”
The pastor rose, asying:
“I have nothing to add to my obser
vations last Saturday, and ask the
court to deliver a verdict of not guilty.
"I have finished.”
The verdict was pronounced as Mr.
Niemoeller listened serenely, smiling at
his wife and children.
Trial Was Secret.
The pastor was tried before a secret
tribunal, after his bitter protest in a
45-minute speech to the three presid
ing judges on the opening day.
“Why am I here under the accusa
tion of a traitor?” he cried. “I’ve done
nothing to justify such a charge."
The 46-year-old minister for years
was an outspoken campaigner against
Fuehrer Hitler’s efforts to Nazify re
ligion in Germany. This campaign
ended with his arrest July 1.
His trial could have been avoided
had he been willing to agree to cease
his attacks, but he refused stanchly
to do this.
In the turbulent past five years he
has been under arrest repeatedly, has
submitted to frequent searches of his
parish house and his private apart
ment. His wires wei*e tapped, his mail
opened, secret service agents took
notes when he preached, a bomb was
thrown into his parsonage- in 1934,
and he even was trailed on errands.
TEAR GAS SALES
CITED AT INQUIRY
207 Manufacturers Bought
60% of Total “for Labor
War,” Official Says.
A Senate Civil Liberties Committee
official said today that the 207 leading
contributors to the National Associa
tion of Manufacturers bought 60 per
cent of all the tear gas sold to Industry
"for labor warfare” in 1933-1937.
Robert Wohlforth, committee secre
tary, made that statement shortly
after the opening of the committee’s
investigation of the aMnufacturers
Association.
It brought John Gall, association
lawyer, to his feet with a reply that
"the association has at no time during
the period covered by this report
<1933-19371 suggested to its members
that they use tear gas.”
Mr. Wohlforth also told the com
mittee some of the contributors also
were "quite prominent in the employ
ment of detective agencies." He listed
the General Motors Corp., the Chrys
ler Corp., the Pennsylvania Railroad,
Oongoleum-Nnirn, Inc, and Laclede
Gas of 8t. Louis in this connection.
Cites Contributions.
8ome officers and directors of some
of the contributing companies, Mr.
Wohlforth said, also had contributed
to the American Liberty League, the
Crusaders, the Sentinels of America,
the National Economy League, the
Farmers' Independence Council and
the Johnstown tPa.) Citizens’ Com
mittee.
Boosted principally by large con
tributions for its "public information”
program, the Income of the N. A. M.
has risen gradually from *240.900 in
1933 to *1,439.548 in 1937, it was dis
closed before the committee.
The Income statistics were Included
in a maze of data and numerous charts
by which the committee demonstrated
that the 207 companies, or about 5
per cent of Its membership, "are in
a position to formulate and effectuate
the policies of the association."
As the hearing opened, Chairman La
Pollette, Progressive, of Wisconsin de
clined to allow the witnesses, Walter
B. Weisenburger. executive vice presi
dent, and Noel Sargent, secretary, to
read into the record a long, prepared
statement on operation of the associa
tion.
Amplifying Statement.
Concentrating on its own exhibits as
prepared from material furnished by
the association, the committee placed
in the record an amplifying statement
Indicating that the trade organization
is controlled primarily by the larger
corporations
The committee exhibit follows, in
part:
“Among the corporations that have
retained directorships for five years
are the American Rolling Mill Co. of
Middletown. Ohio: the General Mills.
Inc., of Minneapolis, the Interna
tional Business Machines Co. of New*
York, the American Cyanamid &
Chemical Co. of New York, the Lam
bert Pharmacal Co. of St. Louis.
Standard Oil Co. of Ohio and the
Eastman Kodak Co. of Rochester,
N. Y.
“Some of the largest contributors
for the five-year period (1933-1837)
included:
“E. I. du Pont de Nemours 8z Co.
contributed *116.800. General Mo
tors gave *65,295.
"In the oil business, the constituent
companies of the old Standard Oil
contributed *76.800. The Texas Co.
gave *26,500 and the Sun Co. $18,500.
“In the automobile business Chrys
ler gave *35,400 and Borg-Warner
*27,141.67.
Leads List With *22,700.
In the non-ferrous group the Amer
ican Smelting Sc Refining Co. leads
the list with $22,700.
"In the food line Swift Sc Co. leads
with $18,950.
“In steel the list is led by the
United States Steel Corp. with $37,500;
National Steel Corp., $42,050; Bethle
hem Steel, $29,250, and Republic
Steel, $24,550.
"The electrical manufacturing in
dustry is led by the Westinghouse
Electric of Pittsburgh with $39,937.50;
glass by the Pittsburgh Plate Glass
Co. of Pitsburgh with $16,000, and
the business machine Industry is led
by Remington Rand, Inc., wtlh
*13,750..”
Despite objection from association
witnesses and admission by Commit
tee Secretary Robert Wohlforth that
there was no established connection,
the committee exhibit charged that
the association "is closely connected
with the National Metal Trades As
sociation, which this committee has
previously investigated. It is interest
ing to note that 27 A. A. M. members
were active in the N. M. T. A. during
the five-year period, or some time dur
ing it.
Tear Gaa Purchases.
“It is also interesting to note that
approximately 60 per cent of the tear
gas purchased by all industrial firms
in the United States during the period
for labor warfare was purchased by
these 207 companies. The total sales
of tear gas to industrial companies
was ascertained by the committee to
equal approximately $500,000 for the
period.
The total purchases of tear gas by
the companies listed equal $296,531.30.
This includes 45 companies. Similarly,

55 of the 207 companies used Indus
trial detective service, and paid $2,
250,000 to Industrial detective agen
cies in the years 1933 to 1937.
The Income charts showed that the
informational program of the asso
ciation was undertaken first in 1934,
and brought approximately $20,000 in
contributions in that year. For 1937
contributions for this purpose reached
about $800,000.
The largest contribution to the as
sociation in any one month was last
June, when the "little steel" strike was
under way.
Directing his questioning first at
Mr. Welsenburger, Senator La'Follette
was told that the association has a
membership of about 3,000 "respon
sible" manufacturers. The association
has a board of 80 directors, jt was ex
plained, who in turn name associate
officers and a governing Executive
Committee.
Questioned Closely.
Establishing the existence of com
mittees on employment relations,
public relations and national Indus
trial Information, Chairman La Fbl
lette questioned both witnesses closely
about the functions of these groups.
Mr. Sargent said that a reopen shop
committee had met twice with the
employment relations body in 1933, but
had not met since.
Mr. Welsenburger estimated that
members and affiliates of the associa
tion employ nearly 5,000,000 workers,
almost one-half of the total manufac
turing workers.
"Is it the function of the associa
tion to voice the united opinion of its
members?" Senator La Follette asked.
"That is more an ambition or ideal
than a fact,” Mr. Weisenburger said.

Modification of Relations
With Vatican Demanded
by Graz Leaders.
B» the Associated Press
GRAZ, Austria, March 2.—Nazi
leader* In this center of Austrian
Nazidom advanced a demand today
that the traditionally Catholic nation
modify its relations with the Vatican.
"The concordat must be changed,”
they said, as the Nazi-inclined minister
of Interior, Arthur Seysz-Inquart, con
tinued efforts to mollify the excited
National Socialists.
Handbills assailing the church were
distributed. They did not, however,
ask specific changes in the concordat
or set forth the Nazi reason for wish
ing to alter church-state relations.
Seysz-Inquart, whose appointment
to the Austrian cabinet last month was
approved by Germany’s Fuehrer Hitler,
came here to the welcome of an esti
mated 20,000 Nazis who paraded
noisily through the city last night by
torchlight. Police and soldiers did
not interfere.
Has Delicate Problem.
Seysz-Inquart had before him the
delicate problem of satisfying, on the
one hand, the Nazis bent on complete
union and Hitlerizatlon of Austria;
on the other, Chancellor Schuschnigg's
program to coax the Nazis into his
Fatherland Front party, with the con
dition that they strive wholeheartedly
for independence.
Principal Nazi demands presented to
Seysz-Inquart were for legal rights to
belong to the Nazi party ithe father
land front is Austria’s sole legal party),
'permission for a Nazi membership
drive to serve as a plebiscite on the
nation's wishes, and a ban on socialist
and communist organization.
The Graz Nazis, claiming 92 per
cent of the Styria provincial govern
ment officials and 82 per cent of city
officials, were determined to attain
more power "without Berlin, if need
be,” they declared.
There was hope, nevertheless, that j
Seysz-Inquart. in his position as
friendly to Hitler and a member of
the Austrian government, might effect
a compromise.
Favor for Schuschnigg.
While it was a Nazi' day in Styria.
in other provinces there were signs of
an upsui’ge in Chancellor Schuschnigg's
popularity. ,,,
From Innsbruck and Salzburg came
reports the Fatherland Frontiers
enthusiastically were organizing pa
triotic demonstrations for the coming
week. In Vienna there was a feminine
rally to Schuschnigg. with the
“Frauenschaft” of the Front deter
mined on a demonstration Friday.
They are to hear, among others. Fanny
Starhemberg. mother of the Fascist
Prince Starhemberg, whose private
army, the Heimwehr, was disbanded
in 1936.
Starhemberg is now out of the coun
try on his honeymoon, but a move
ment is under way to reorganize the
Heimwehr members as a political unit
to combat Nazi inroads in Austria.

BIG W. P. A BILL
$250,000,000 Is Authorized
as Agency Prepares to
Hire 500,000.
By the Associated Press.
President Roosevelt signed the
$250,000,000 emergency relief appro
priation bill today to provide supple
mental funds for the Works Progress
Administration up to next June 30.
Works Progress Administration of
ficials authorized their State admin
istrators today to hire 500,000 more
relief workers this month, to offset
part of the unemployment increase at
tributed to the business recession.
15 to 25 Per Cent Rise.
Aubrey Williams, acting W. P. A.
administrator during the convalescence
of Harry Hopkins, estimated that the
March increases would pull up local
enrollments from 15 to 25 per cent,
depending on State needs.
Without the new money, to be avail
able as soon as Mr. Roosevelt signed
the measure, W, P. A. rolls would have
been curtailed by 500,000 between now
and July 1, Mr. Williams said, instead
of being increased.
2.000,000 in February.
Thus W. P A. rolls, which reached
2.000. 000 in February, will be open to
1.000. 000 more persons than had been
contemplated last year when Congress
allotted $1,500,000,000 for the 12
months.
Mr. Williams said he expected large
industrial centers to furnish heaviest
demands for a slice of the new relief
money, but added:
‘ There is no part of the country
that is not affected in some real de
gree.”

REALTY MORTGAGE'
Federal-American Company
to Keep Same Officials
in New Set-Up.
Reorganization of the Federal
American Co , real estate and mort
gage firm, to operate under a new
Delaware charter as the American Co.,
was announced today.
John Poole, president of the com
pany, said reorganization of the capi
tal structure was "made necessary by
the existence of a technical capital
deficit, which situation prevented the
old company from distributing any of
its eamings . .
Federal-American stockholders ap
proved the reorganization plan yes
terday and took final action to trans
fer all assets and liabilities of the
old company to the new firm. The
plan provides for the exchange of one
share of new preferred stock, with
par value of $100, for each share of
the old preferred stock, and one
share of new common stock for eight
shares of the old common stock.
Mr. Poole said capital and surplus
of the new company will amount to
*697,781.
The same board of directors is re
tained by the new company, which
will have offices at 807 Fifteenth
street N.W. for carrying on a general
real estate and mortgage business.
Preparation of certificates will delay
the actual exchange of stock until
the latter part of March, Mr. Poole
said. The new preferred stock will
be 5 per cent cumulative. The di
rectors are authorized to declare a
$5 per share annual dividend on the
new common stock if earnings are
sufficient.
Mr. Poole was president of the Fed
eral-American National 1 snk & Trust
Co., which closed in 1933. Its assets
were taken over by the Hamilton Na
tional Bank.
