Badoglio's Promise
To Resign Followed by
Hints King Will Quit
By the Associated Press.
•ITALY, Nov. 15.—Premier Mar
shal Pietro Badoglio’s pledge to
resign as head of the Italian
government when Rome falls
was quickly followed today by
strong indications that King
Victor Emmanuel’s abdication is
only a matter of time.
Dr. Leopoldo Piccardi, who quit
as minister of labor and commerce
on the heels of Badoglio's statement
yesterday, reflected the general atti
tude that the end is near for the
monarch when he told friends he
could not afford to be associated
with the Premier’s proposed “tech
nical cabinet” and, by inference,
with the King.
By his statement that he would
quit when the Allies reach Rome,
Badoglio altered previous declara
tions that he would stay in office
until the Germans are driven from
the country.
Badoglio's decision was a direct
result of his refusal to take part in
any government which unseats the
Swore Loyalty at 17.
“When I was 17,” the marshal said
at a press conference. "I swore loy
alty to the King and will keep faith
as long as I live.”
In a statement, issued last night,
he confirmed reports that Count
Carlo Sforza, pre-Fascist foreign
minister; Benedetto Croce, noted!
Italian pholospher, and other po
litical leaders had refused to join
a government under a king they
considered tainted by fascism.
Badoglio now has abandoned ef
forts to form a representative gov
ernment. He announced Saturday
he would set up what was desig
nated as a technical cabinet—a
mere government framework in;
which minor functionaries would
carry on the necessary work until
the capital is freed.
The premier said Count Sforla
and others had asked not only that
the king abdicate but that Crown
Price Umberto renounce the succes-;
sion and that the latter’s son. the
six-year-old Prince of Naples, should
become king under a regency.
Badoglio said he was forced to
refuse these conditions.
No Alternative but to Quit.
His refusal and decision to resign
once Rome is reached, by a political
paradox, removed the one‘strong
prop that has been keeping Victor
Emmanuel on the throne he has
occupied for 43 years.
When Badoglio resigns, the king,
under the constitution, must try to
form a new government. With all
political parties united on the
ground they would not join any gov
ernment under him, he presumably
would have no alternative but to
Badoglio said he had received a
message from the leaders of the six
Italian political parties, each making
known “that once the capital was
liberated they favored the estab
lishment of a completely constitu
tional government composed of
political personages, leaving me only
the military.”
Tire Premier said he then pro
posed the stop-gap government of
“technical experts" in each ministry'
to work with the Allied commission,
“and when Rome was liberated I
would present my resignation as
head of the government and retire.”
Badoglio said the undersecretaries
for the technical government would
be announced in a few days.
Closing his announcement about
the technical government, Badoglio
said “I hope my government lasts
only a short time.”
With the resignation of Piccardi,
the Premier's present cabinet is al
most non-existent. Piccardi was the
only civilian member. Military men

their plundered farms.
“The length of the war may be
materially shortened if, as we free
each occupied area, the people are
enlisted in support of the United
Nations’ armies.
“Already, for example, a new
French army has been created and,
as we strike toward Berlin, increas
ing numbers in Sicily and Italy are
falling in step beside the soldiers of
the United Nations. Others con
struct roads and military installa
tions required for our military opera
tions. Millions more are waiting for
the moment when they, too, can
strike a blow against the enemy.
“They do not want charity. They
seek the strength to fight, and to do
their part in securing the peace.
Aid to the liberated peoples during
the war is thus a matter of military
necessity as well as of humanity.
Not a Long-Range Plan.
“UNRRA will not of course, be
expected to solve the long-range\
problems of reconstruction. Other!
machinery and other measures will j
be necessary for this purpose. What,
UNRRA can do is to lay the neces-!
sary foundation for these later tasks
of reconstruction. The devastation
and disorganization caused by the;
Nazi and Japanese war machines is'
so great that this world disaster can
be met only by the united action of
the 44 United Nations and associated
nations. Accordingly, under the
agreement establishing UNRRA. it
is proposed that each nation will
contribute in accordance with its
ability. Each will determine for it
self the amount and character of;
the contribution which it can make, i
“A small fraction of the national
income of the contributing States
will, it is hoped, be sufficient to
meet the needs. Some of the liber-!
ated nations may be able to make
payment for the supplies and serv-i
ices rendered. But only by bringing
to bare the resources of all the
United Nations will we be able to
relieve a substantial part of the
suffering of the millions who will
need help.
"The nature and the amount of
the contribution to be made by the
United States will, in accordance of
the UNRRA agreement, be deter
mined by the Congress of the United
States under its constitutional pro
“At this time I recommend to the
Congress the enactment of a bill
■authorizing the appropriation of
funds as Congress may from time to
time determine to permit the par
ticipation by the United States in
the work of UNRRA. I am not now
recommending the appropriation of
a specific sum. At a later date after
the conclusion of the Atlantic City
meeting I shall send to you a further
recommendation informing you of
the result of the meeting and re
questing the appropriation of spe

Need of Postwar Rationing
Declared Less Likely
By the Associated Press.
ATLANTIC CITY, N. J„ Nflfr. 15.
—The need for postwar rationing
in this country, in favor of relief to
Europe and China, appeared less
serious here today as the commit
tees of the United Nations Relief
and Rehabilitation Administration
began their work.
Tliis development followed on the
heels of a report that the overall
cost to the United States for its
contribution to the UNRRA would
be about a billion and a half dollars.
The entire bill will not be pre
sented to Congress in a lump sum,
it was said, the initial appropri
ation bill probably asking for less
than half a billion.
It was reported after the first
Finance Committee session last
night that UNRRA members are
striving to fix a flexible formula
to produce about two and a half
billion dollars, the amount spent by
the United States for European
reconstruction after the World War.
Flexible Formula Needed.
The formula, it was said, must be
flexible as it is not possible for all
nations to meet fairly the proposal,
for instance, that they be assessed
1 per cent of their annual income.
This formula, however, seems to
have the lead as the American con

to have a fats surplus, since much

"The Office of Price Administra

citizens, depriving them in certain

nonreviewable power and authority
in the hands of the administrator."
Beyond that, the report dealt gen
erally with OPA as a whole, rather
than with any individuals.
The committee said it found that
OPA "has developed an unauthor

that through the mass of rules and
regulations daily enacted by that
agency it has also developed such
intricate and involved administra

So far no reply is known to have

any overt move against this chal

notably, he has not reprimanded
eight top army men who joined the
monarchist movement.
Although Franco has shrewdly
countered previous attempts to
lessen his office, these informants,
who cannot be further identified,
noted that he did not punish se
verely any of the several prominent
members of the Cortes who signed
a letter given him June 17 proposing

These reports, confirming earlier,

Franco's opposition as consisting not

also of a strange mixture of repub

disgruntled land owners, big capi

It was indicated, however, that
proponents of a monarchy had more
chance of success than advocates of
reviving the republican government

tutional the section of the Public
Utility Holding Company Act pro
hibiting registered holding com
panies from making contributions
to political parties or candidates for
public office.
The legislation was challenged by
the Union Electric Co. of Missouri
and by Louis H. Egan of Clayton,
Mo., former president of the com
pany. Mr. Egan was sentenced to
two years' imprisonment and fined
$10,000. The company, a subsidiary
of the North American Co., was
fined $80,000.'
In upholding the legislation and
the two convictions in the Federal
District Court at St. Louis, the
Eighth Federal Circuit Court said:
Ban Called Constitutional.
"Considering the evil effect of po
litical contributions * • • we think
the prohibition of such contribu
tions. whether made to candidates
for Federal or non-Federal offices.
1 whether to national or local parties
! or committees, * • • by public utility
; holding companies is within the
pow-er of Congress."
It was contended by the company
that the legislation was unconstitu
tional because it sought to regulate
non-Federal contributions and "en
croached upon the powers reserved
to the States.”
The Justice Department asserted
that "the problem of political con
tributions may be viewed as an inci
dent of the comprehensive statutory
regulation of interstate utility hold
ling company enterprises, to the end
i that their integrity shall be main
j tained.”
The Government charged that a
$591,000 "slush fund" was raised be
tween 1930 and 1939 and was con
cealed on the books of the corpora
Gifts Ranged Up to S4.000.
"In the period from 1932 to 1939.”
the Justice Department said, "con
tributions varying in amount from
$25 to $4,000 were made to candi
dates for virtually every type of
I elective office. State or local, in the
State of Missouri, in all elections,
primary, general or special, in all
parts of the State.
"The contributions were made to
Republicans. Democrats and non
partisans, sometimes to opposing
candidates for the same office. A
number of the contributions were
made to candidates for local offices
who would be in a position to pass
on the valuation of Union’s property
i for tax purposes.”
| The defense contended that
neither Mr. Egan nor the company
knew of the fund, authorized it. or
participated in its distribution. They
said the blame rested on Frank j.
Boehm and Albert C. Laun, former
vice presidents, who testified for the
Chief Justice Stone and Justices
Douglas and Jackson did not partici
pate in today's action.

Japs Increase Claims
Of Bougainville Sinkings
! By the Associated Press.
The Japanese radio, broadcasting
another entire^ unsubstantiated re
port of heavy Allied naval losses, de
clared yesterday that naval planes
had sunk two cruisers out of an
Allied task force south of Bougain
ville Island Saturday, and damaged
a destroyer, a battleship, and a me
dium-sized aircraft carrier.
This alleged engagement was the
“fourth air battle off Bougainville
Island,” said the broadcast.
Berlin relayed a Tokio dispatch
giving this total of Allied losses since
October 27 in the Solomons area:
Thirty-seven warships and trans
ports sunk, including four battle
ships, two airplane carriers and 12
cruisers. Damaged, said the Jap
anese, were 52 warships and trans
ports, including two battleships,
three aircraft carriers and 11 cruis
But, despite these wholesale sink
ings, “the Anglo-Americans have
such large reserves in this area that
they could immediately form a
further large formation of their
fleet," said a second Toklo-via-Berlin
Bricker Announces
He Will Not Run for
Ohio Governorship
By the Associated Press.
COLUMBUS, Ohio, Nov. 15.—Gov.
John W. Bricker announced formally
today he was a candidate for'the
Republican presidential nomination.
His statement also renounced any
bid for a fourth term as Governor.
“In view of the great needs, con
fident of the fact that the Republi
can Party will be called to lead our
Nation at the next election, } shall
be a candidate for President of the
United States in the Ohio primaries
and before the Republican National
Convention,” he asserted.
His only reference to delegates in
any State was that he would seek
to win support of the Ohio delega
Assails ‘‘New Deal.”
Gov. Bricker said in his statement
the New Deal had “come to the end
of its service to the people.”
“Confusion and distrust reign
throughout the land," he said. "We
need not alone a change of admins
tration but a change of the philoso
phy of government held by many
New Dealers. The playing of one
class of our people against another,
the building of pressure groups by
Government must come to an end.
"There is need for impartial and
just administration as -between all
classes, groups and individuals in
our society. The American people
must be encouraged to look forward
to the day as soon as possible after
victory when Government restraint
will be relieved, rationing with all
its implications will end. business
will be encouraged and individual
liberty and opportunity restored.”
Four Seen As Candidates.
The Governor said last week that
his action in other States would be
determined by events "as they come
to pass.”
His withdrawal from the guberna
torial picture threw open the field
to four potential candidates who,
according to all reports, refused to
withdraw during a dinner with Gov.
Bricker last night and thus clear
the way for one of the quartet and
prevent any intraparty dispute.
Efforts to arrive at “a guber
natorial ticket satisfactory to all”
were unsuccessful at the dinner be
cause “nobody indicated a willing
ness to withdraw as a prospective
candidate,” a dinner guest said.
Would Have Withdrawn.
Political observers in the capital'
agree that if Gov. Bricker had
1 chosen to seek the gubernatorial
j nomination three State officials
i who are considered likely candi
dates would have withdrawn.
These are Attorney General
Thomas J. Herbert, Lt. Gov. Paul
M. Herbert and State Treasurer Don
H. Ebright. The fourth potential
candidate, who has indicated Gov.
Bricker’s decision would not affect
his plans, Is Mayor James Garfield
Stewart of Cincinnati. All attended
; the dinner.

was challenged in this case by Stan-'
ley W. Taylor of San Francisco,
who contended that the OPA ad
ministrator was converted into a;
"one-man legislature."
His complaint was dismissed by
the United States Emergency Court
of Appeals, which sustained the leg- I
islation and maximum rent regula-;
tions for the San Francisco area.
The Justice Department said the
Court of Appeals decision was
“clearly correct" but that a Supreme
Court review was warranted because
of the importance of the questions
involved in the administration and
enforcement of the Price Control

The tribunal on October 11 had
denied a review for Walter Ford
Gormlv of Milwaukee, who con
tended that reporting for duty would
make him a "participant in the

Gormlv then filed a petition for

tained this “invocation of divine

or in camp as assignees of a crafty
system of imprisonment without
benefit of trial or authority of law.
"May the voice of Almighty God
speak through the members of this

throughout the land."
