Mrs. Roosevelt Asks Aid
For Quake Sufferers
By the Associated Press.
Mrs. Franklin D. Roosevelt ap- *
pealed yesterday in a radio address I
for contributions to the Red Cross
fund for Chilean earthquake relief, j
"We must do our share," she said, j
"and show that we care for those !
who suffer no matter where that
suffering occurs.
"I think, perhaps, that we forget—
we mean to do all that we can do, i
but in the hurry of life, burdened
with the everyday cares, and faced
with problems which we think very
great, we forget the problems of
other nations, and we must not
forget, for it is the gesture of
sympathy and brotherly love which
cements friendship between na
tions."

he has held the office since then.
He has accompanied the President
on all of his travels, and is con
sidered one of the President's closest
personal friends.
The White House explained that
there will be no difference in Col.
Watson's retirement pay by reason
of his promotion to a brigadier and
immediate retirement. As a White
House secretary he will receive
$10,000 a year and the White House
will make up the difference between
his retirement pay and that
amount.
It was pointed out that Col. Wat- 1
son may be temporarily restored to
active duty as an aide at any time
the President desired. This may
occur, some suggested, when the
British King and Queen visit the
White House in June.
Is Native of Alabama.
Col. Watson was born in Eufala,
Ala., December 10, 1883. He was ap
pointed to West Point from Virginia
by Secretary of the Navy Swanson,
who was then Senator from Virginia
and upon graduation in 1908 was
commissioned as second lieutenant
of infantry. He was promoted to
first lieutenant in 1915; captain, in
May, 1917; to major ftempoorary
ramo. in August, 1917; and to lieu

and to colonel in 1937.
Col. Watson has seen duty in the
Philippines as well as in France.
During the war he commanded the
1st Battalion, 12th Field Artillery.
He saw service in the Verdun sec
tion, the Aisne offensive northwest
of Chateau Theirry, in the Aisne
Marne offensive, south of Soissons, ;
and in the St. Mihiel offensive. His j
battalion of artillery was the first
American unit to go into action at
Belleau Wood. For this he was
awarded the Silver Star (United
States), the Croix de Guerre
'France) and was recommended for
the Distinguished Service Cross. He
again was cited in 2d Division order
and in French army orders at
Thiaucourt. These citations re
sulted in the award of the Oak Leaf
Cluster to the Silver Star and a |
Palm to the Crois de Guerre.

Shortly after the war Col. Watson
was ordered to Paris as chief of the
military section of the American
Peace Commission and as junior

$15 Monthly Pension
Sufficient for Aged,
Swope Believes
U. S. Government Has
Made Good Start,
He Declares
Gerard Swope, president of the
General Electric Co. told the House
Ways and Means Committee today
he believed $15 per person per month
was as much as the Fedeial Govern- !
ment should pay new toward the
cost of old-age pensions.
He testified at hearings on pro
posals to expand the social security
system.
"I think the Federal Government
has made a good start." he said. "It
it pays $15. it doesn't preclude the
States paying more than that as
their share."
He recommended domestic and
farm workers and employes of
charitable and educational organi/a- j
tions be brought under the Social'
Security Act. He admitted, how
eevr. the question of including em
ployes of religious institutions of
fered a delicate problem with a
bearing on the separation of church
and state and freedom of religion.
He suggested payments of old-age
pensions be started next year instead
of 1942, also that an increase in
old-age pension taxes from 1 to
l12 per cent on both employers and
employes be allowed to go into effect
next year.
hc saia ne had no idea what
amount was proper to be held in
the Social Security reserve fund,
which, under present law, is sched
uled to reach about $47,000,000,000
in 1980.
"I have never taken that big re
serve fund seriously,” Mr. Swope
asserted. "It is speaking of mvthical
figures in the first place and of
1980 in the second place and there
will be many changes before then.”
European Federation
Needed,Says Benes
Bj the Associated Press.
CHICAGO, March 6.—Dr. Eduard
Benes. former president of Czecho
slovakia. holds that definite fron
tiers in Europe are imposssible and
that the next step "must be toward
a democratic and federative Europe."
"Such an institution as the League
of Nations which will constantly en
courage collaboration among Euro
pean nations is essential for a lasting
peace in Europe." he asserted yes
terday during a radio round-table.
Discussing the "outlook for democ
racy,” Dr. Benes said "Precise fron
tiers in Europe, especially in Central
Europe, are impossible because dur
ing the centuries mutual penetration
of different nations and races has
been so profound and so far-reach
ing.”
The economic limit of armament
costs soon will be reached in Europe
and then will follow “a really criti
cal period." Dr. Benes declared.
"If peaceful settlement of prob
lems producing tension are not then
attained there will be either war
or bankruptcy and collapse followed
by revolution.”
Dr. Benes is teaching at the Uni
versity of Chicago.

Senator Lee, Democrat, of Okla

which would "recover for the Gov
ernment most of the profits” made
in armaments building.
“I think we ought to eliminate
most of the profits which have the
effect of leading us into war,” Sena
tor Lee said.
Seeking speedy enactment of a
unified defense program, congres

In the Senate, wncre an argu
ment over foreign policy delayed It
last week, the $358,000,000 Army ex
pansion measure was approaching
a vote. First, however, members
had to decide whether to accept a
committee proposal to fix the limit
of Air Corps strength at 6,000 planes
instead of the 5,500 approved by the
House.
In another Senate committee

Hughes, Noted Pianist, Lauds
Offer of Symphonic Records
Thinks Appreciation Campaign Will
Create Desire for Musical Library
Edwin Hughes of New York, noted ]
pianist and president of the Music j
Teachers' National Association, i
believes The Star's music appreci
ation campaign will create a deep
desire among lovers of music to
build up a complete library of re
cordings of the finest works in the
realm of classical music.
Mr. Hughes expressed this convic- j
tion yesterday in enthusiastically!
indorsing The Star's program under
which recordings of 10 symphonies i
and symphonic compositions by !
some of the greatest composers of \
the past are being made available ■
to the public at an extraordinarily ;
low cost.
Now in the midst of a recital tour ]
with his wife, Jewel Bethany
Hughes, also a noted pianist, Mr.
Hughes was a visitor over the week
end at the Washington College of
Music. In joining with the scores
of other musical leaders who have
praised the music appreciation cam
paign, Mr. Hughes said:
"Every music lover, of course, will
want to obtain the symphonic re
cordings being offered by The Star.
But I believe, also, that after they
come to know and love these great
works, they will want to own and
enjoy other types, such as piano
and chamber music recordings.
Many of these are among the finest
works in the musical repertoire.
Recordings Widely Used.
“The study of music appreciation
through the playing of recordings
is recognized and used by every col
lege in the country offering courses
in music.”
Mr. Hughes said the library of
recordings being offered by The
Star includes some of the finest and
most significant works in the whole
realm of symphonic literature.
“This campaign is another indi
cation of the interest long taken
by The Star in forwarding artistic
and cultural ideas and endeavors.
The Star is second to no other
newspaper in the United States in
its work in this field.”
Mr. Hughes heads an association
which has a membership of between
8.000 and 9.000 teachers of music.
The association held its annual con
vention in Washington last Decem
ber.
Meanwhile, Mrs. Fanny Amstutz
Roberts, presiden* of the Washing
ton College of Music and president
of the Washington Music Teachers’
Association, announced today that
seven other members of the Execu
tive Board of the association have
High Court Rejects
Attack on Labor Board
By the Associated Press.
The Supreme Court refused today
to review an attack by the Carlisle
Lumber Co. of Onalaska, Wash., on
a Labor Relations Board order re
quiring reinstatement of 147 dis
charged employes with $185,000 back
pay.
Without explanation the tribunal
refused to pass on a decision by the
Ninth Federal Circuit Court uphold
ing the order.
No opinions were delivered by the
court. This postponed at least until
next Monday a final decision on the
right of the Government to deport
an alien Communist. Joseph G.
Strecker of Hot Springs, Ark., is in
volved. The case has been awaited
since the ruling may determine
whether deportation action Is taken
against Harry Bridges, West Coast
C. I. O. leader.
Action on the Carlisle case had
been up for several weeks to await
rulings on three Labor Board cases,
which were decided last Monday.
In those cases the court set aside
Labor Board orders directing the
reinstatement of striking employes.
The board found that the Carlisle
Co. had discharged employes who
were members of the Lumber and
Sawmill Workers’ Union and naii
dominated a “pretended labor or
ganization” known as the Associated
Employes of Onalaska, Inc.

while we are here trying to legislate
to help them there are conditions
at Gallinger Hospital that constitute
a "damned shame.”
Other Bills Approved.
Representative Seccombe then
withdrew his previous motion after
declaring he did not intend to see
District police and firemen “abused,"
because of conditions at Gallinger
or any other institution. Then by
vote of 10 to 2, with Representatives
Bates, Democrat, of Kentucky, and
Bolles, Republican, of Wisconsin,
dissenting, returned the bill to the
Police and Fire Subcommittee.
The committee, however, did give
its formal approval to a bill to permit
firemen to join the International
Association of Firefighters and to a
Senate-approved measure designed
to protect banks in the District from
unreasonable obligations and unjust
claims. It also decided to hold all
future meetings on Monday instead
of Wednesday.
The bank bill was approved by a
7-to-6 roll call vote after Representa
tive Dirksen. who objected to two
'of its provisions, made a futile effort
to have it returned to the Insurance
and Banking Subcommittee for fur
ther consideration. Mr. Dirksen in
dicated he would seek to have the
bill amended on the House floor
to meet his objections.

dling the affairs of the department
regardless of changes in adminis

In response to committee ques
tions Mr. Ickes agreed there should
not be two Government agencies
competing with each other in the
same kind of public work. The Un
employment Committee contended
in a recent report that State and
local officials who are turned down
for P. W. A. projects have the op

statement: “That was a W. P. A.

McNary added, however, that it was
one of the best projects that had
been built.

Chinese Seek Further
U.S. Scrap Iron Ban
Attempt to Half
Portland Shipments
To Japanese Ports
By the Associated Press.
PORTLAND, Oreg., March 6.—
Portland Chinese, cheered by a vic
tory at Astoria, massed today to
prevent longshoremen from loading
the Greek steamer Ann Stfcathatos
with scrap iron for Japan.
The Chinese prepared to send
1.200 persons on the pier in a
"peaceful demonstration” like that
which held longshore gangs back
from the Japanese freighter Norway
Maru at Astoria for eight days.
The vigil, in which rain-chilled
children trudged along with grown
ups, resulted in Astoria port officials
declaring an embargo on future
shipments of iron to Japan.
Longshore leaders here declared
the situation presented possibilities
of a port closing such as threatened
at Astoria and Marshfield. Samuel
B. Weinstein, Federal arbiter, con
ferred with labor and water-front
employers' association officials in an
attempt to effect a peaceful settle
ment.
i he Chinese meanwhile prepared
for a lengthy siege. Four hundred
of their number, who held the dock
I yesterday, arranged a first aid sta
tion and food was donated by Chi
nese and American restaurants.
White pickets were absent, despite
offers of several organizations to
join the Chinese. They were po
litely but firmly refused.
The Norway Maru at Astoria con
tinued to load the last scrap to
leave there and longshore crews at
Marshfeld loaded scrap iron on the
Greek ship Kostis after pickets
withdrew Sunday.

ther growth in private residential
building, larger outlays for plant
and equipment, and greater public
expenditures for construction or
other purposes.”
The board estimated that the
February rate of industrial produc
tion was about 99 per cent of the
1923-25 average, compared with 101
in January and the recession recov
ery peak of 104 in December. The
board explained, however, that the
, index reduction was due to a failure
of factories to speed up by the usual
seasonal amount since December,
but added that output had not
actually been curtailed.
The principal congressional fight
on Government expenditures may
come over an administration pro
posal to increase the national debt
limit by $5,000,000,000, a proposal re
garded by some Senate Democrats as
the most politically dangerous meas
ure of the session.
Several economy-minded Senators
who usually follow the advice of
Vice President Garner said thev
; were surveying the situation to de
! termine whether action could be
| delayed until after the 1940 elec
tion.
The proposed increase advocated
by Secretary Morgenthau would
i lift from $45,000,000,000 to $50,000.
000,000 the maximum amount which
the Government could owe. The na
tional debt will total about $41,100,
000,000 when this fiscal year ends
June 30. By present estimate it will
stand at $44,500,000,000 on June 30,
1940.
Republican strategy this winter
has been centered on making econ
omy a major political issue. Re
publican leaders said today that
Government spending policies un
doubtedly would be emphasized dur

declared in a statement yesterday
that “before lasting recovery and
increased employment can be a
reality in the United States, all
doubts about the national credit
must be removed.”

Hard Coal Operators
Gear Production to
Three-Day Week
Bituminous Industry
Also Studies Action
To Curb Output
E> the Associated Press.
HARRISBURG, Pa., March 6.—
One branch of the Nation's coal
industry geared its production to
day to a three-day week while an
other was considering similar action
as a possible cure for its economic
ills.
Anthracite operators in Pennsyl
vania’s Eastern counties put into
effect a "holiday” plan to curb—
for a month at least—their output
in a move that Republican Gov,
Arthur H. James called necessary
to "stabilize the market,” for hard
coal.
Soft coal producers meantime re
ceived a suggestion from a prom
inent West Virginia executive to
take steps in a like direction
adoption of a four-day work week.
Program Submitted.
In a five-point program for the
bituminous industry submitted to
the committee for amendment of
the Coal Act in Washington yester
day. E. C. Minter, president of the
Miner Fuel Co. of Beckley, W. Va.,
ventured the belief the shorter week
would "balance” production and
demand.”
The Pennsylvania anthracite plan
was worked out late in the week
at a conference called by Gov. James
and attended by hard coal operators,
three district presidents of the
United Mine Workers of America
and a spokesman for the so-called
"bootleg” miners.
Reduced Week First Step.
The decision on what three days
their workings would run each week
was left to the operators themselves
—but all agreed that three should
be the maximum.
oov. James, a native o: tne hard
coal fields, viewed the reduced week
as only the first step in a long
range co-operative program he
hopes to carry on to re-establish
the anthracite industry on a firm
economic basis.
Hard coal men also have asked
the Governor to appoint a commit
tee to work out a "production-con
trol" program and mete out produc
tion quotas, and to give serious con
sideration to some form of State
1 control of the industry.

By thp Associated Press.
Senator Norris, independent, of
Nebraska, said yesterday he was
positive "the T. V. A. is going to get
a clean bill of health” in a report
being prepared by the special Sen
ate-House committee which investi
gated the agency.
Although he declined appointment
to the committee, Senator Norris
said he had followed most of the
public hearings and "read a great
deal of the testimony, some of it
twice.”
Senator Norris predicted that the
committee would report: "First, that
there's been no fraud, and. second,
that all charges of corruption are
absolutely blasted.”
Members or the committee said
reports already had been completed
by Francis Biddle, committee coun
sel. and Thomas Panter, committee
