A chorus of boos and angry words
signaled mounting tension today as
the House approached a vote on the
bill to authorize the Government to ‘

Democratic side.
"I believe the American people will
fight for their rights." the Georgian !
declared vigorously. "This bill is one
of the things we need to do it and
we're going to pass it.”
Ramspeck Booed.
Representative Short had de
nounced the legislation as "just an- 1
other slap in the face and kick in
the pants to the Axis powers" which
he said would bring the United
States closer to war.
“The gentleman from Missouri
may be named Short." Mr. Rams

“If I had no more faith in the
American people than he demon

Boos interrupted the Georgian
briefly and. turning directly to the
Republican side, he shouted:
"You can boo if you like.”
Mr. Short declared the United

Senator Pepper Says
U. S. Ready to ’Spill
Blood' to Beat Nazis
Floridian Then Leaves
Chamber oi McCarroft
.Starts Reply to Him
'Earner Story on Page A-i.)
Urging- that the -United States
and Britain occupy strategical
strongholds all over the world. Sen
ator Pepper. Democrat, of Florida,
said today the American people were
ready to "spill their blood” to pre
vent dictators from ruling the earth.
In an impassioned plea for this
country to "take the initiative away
from tyrannical braggarts,” Senator
Pepper asserted in the Senate that
it was time for the United States
“to get tough" by helping Britain
occupy Greenland. Iceland, the
Azores, the Cape Verde and Canary
Islands, Singapore and Dakar,
More than two score of his col
leagues listened intently as the
Florida Senator, an early advocate
of aid to Britain, argued that the
United States would face the fate
of 15 European nations already con
quered by the Axis powers if it did
not act at once.
Senator Clark. Democrat, of Mis
souri. a critic of the administra
tion's foreign policies, attempted to
interrupt Senator Pepper's denun
ciation of what the latter said was
the "appeasement” attitude taken
recently by Charles A. Lindbergh,
but Senator Pepper waved him aside.
Refuses to Hear Reply.
Consistently, Senator Pepper de-;
dined to yield the floor during his I
address, and left the chamber!
shortly after Senator McCarran,
Democrat, of Nevada arose to an
swer him.
Senator McCarran asked that
Senator Pepper remain, but the
latter waved and walked through
the door.
"Although the Senator is going |
out, the American people are not
going out with him.” Senator Mc
Carran commented.
Senator Pepper's remarks were
characterized by Senator McCarran
as "a declaration of war. not against
those who would challange our
system of government but against
the entire world.”
Saying that he wondered whether
Senator Pepper spoke for the ad
ministration, the Nevadan observed
that "apparently In the last two
years he has assumed that position
and apparently that position has
been accorded to him.”
Senator McCarran said that he
had supported the administration
whenever it w-as within "the bounds
of democracy,” but had opposed it
when it “went into Fascism.”
Clark Raps Pepper.
Senator Clark described Senator ;
Pepper as "one of the most adept
and vociferous advocates of Hitler- i
ism in the world.”
The Missourian said that Senator1
Pepper had openly advocated “total- j
itarianism” for this country in two!
separate speeches, the one today, j
and one 10 months ago.
“It's bad enough to have a dicta
tor in Europe,” Senator Clark con
tinued. “I do dot wish to have a
Hitler in the United States today.”
Senator Bone, Democrat, of Wash
ington broke in to credit Senator
Pepper with the "rather astonishing
statement” that it was better, for
a "few of our boys to die now—
to be blown to bits or drowned in
the ocean—than for a large army
of them to die later.”
Dr. Simon, 61,
Holdup Victim,
Police Indicate
Evidence Points
Strongly to Murder,
Maj. Brown Says
Dr. Heinrich Simon, 61. refugee
German journalist and music critic.!
whose grandfather founded the
Frankfurter Zeitung—one of Ger
many's most influential newspapers
before Hitler came into power—died j
this morning of a fractured skull
which he apparently received when
beaten up on the streets last night.
Dr. Simon was a former chairman of
the editorial board of the Zeitung.
Police expressed the opinion that I
It was a case of murder, probably
committed in the course of a rob
bery. Dr. Simon died in Garfield
Hospital, where he had been taken
from his home at 1816 New Hamp
shire avenue N.W.
Dr. Simon, a Jew. was a refugee
from his homeland His family left
Germany when Hitler first took over
control of the government. He has |
wandered around the world since
and had been in the United States
for about two years.
Deputy Coroner Christopher J.
Murphv said an autopsy performed
this afternoon had “clearly estab
lished" Dr. Simon was the victim
of an attack. He said Dr. Simon
probably was struck "with a biunt
instrument that had been wrapped." ,
a deduction made from the manner
in which his skull was fractured. j
Grease Smears on Trousers.
A careful examination of Dr. Si
mon's clothing revealed grease
j smears on the trousers near the
1 cuffs. When informed of this. Maj.
j Brown said he was not precluding
| the possibility that the refugee had
1 been struck by an automobile, al
i though he admitted the evidence
pointed more strongly to murder.
Coroner A Magruder MacDonald
agreed with Dr. Murphy that Dr.
! Simon was the victim of an attack.
He said the nature of his injuries
gave little weight to the theory that
it might have been a traffic case.
Dr. Murphv said the fracture was
on the left side, that the skull was
depressed, but that the scalp was
not lacerated. In addition. Dr. Mur
phy said Dr. Simon's lips and nosp
were swollen, and that he had a
bruise near the middle of his back.
A jury was sworn in over the body
in preparation for an inquest.
Both Maj. Ernest W. Brown, chief
of police, and Inspector B. W.
Thompson, chief of detectives, ap
peared at the morgue for the
Awakened by Calls.
Last night about 9:30 o'clock Dr.
Simon went out for a walk, as was ■
his custom. He did not return until '
3 am., at which time he rang the
bell at the door of his apartment.
His wife got up and let him in.
She did not turn on a light and
in the dark noticed nothing unusual
about his actions. At 6:30 a m. to
day sne was awakened by his calls
for help. She told police she thought |
at first that he was suffering from
nn attack of indigestion, but on
looking at him more closely she
realized he had been beaten about
the head.
She said he mumbled in German.
"They beat me over the head * * •
