NEW YORK. Nov. 28.—(/TV— [
Pres.-elect Roosevelt will be con
fronted by a list of 10 ‘forgotten"
states when he sets about deter
mining the personnel of his cabinet.
A perusal of political pages of j
the past disclosed today that these 1
states never have been represented
in the official family of any presi- I
dent, and that one of them—Rhode {
Island—is one of the original 13
The others are Florida, Nevada :
Arizona, Idaho. Montana. North

ALBANY. N. Y., Nov. 28 <A>i—
Thousands of letters are piling up at
the executive mansion while Pres - i
Elect Roosevelt is in Georgia, some
of them suggesting how to run the
government, others pointing out the
accomplishment* ol the writer dur
ing the recent campaign and still
others seeking jobs.
Many of the letter writers want
the governor's signature, or his
photograph; inlorruation on his fa
vorite books; the music he likes;
the iood he prefers, even the poems
he reads.
Many of the letters are sorted and
classified and forwarded to Mr.
Roosevelt at Warm Springs. Some
are answered by the secretaries, un
der the direction of Guernsey T.
Cross and James Mahoney at the
capitol and Miss Grace Tulley at
the mansion.
The president-elect, himself, a
prolific letter writer, is also an eag
er letter reader. He has tried to read
as many of the letters as possible
and to answer as many as is human
ly possible. Until the requests be
came too numerous he always
granted a request for an autograph.
Oft times. running through a
batch of letters, he will pause to
read a missive written in pencil on
lined pajier and not infrequently in
correctly phrased and containing
bad spelling. Several of his themes
for speeches have come from letter
He once said that the pulse of the
people was recorded in the letters
he received. It is certain that some
of the information he has used ef
fectively in statecraft and politics
has come from letter writers, most
of them unknown to him.
Two convicts were back within
"the wails" today at the Texas
penitentiary and two others were
fugitives, after an escape effected
by means of a clever forgery.
The men escaped Armistice Day,
November 11, but the affair was
not revealed until yesterday. Those
who escajied were Jack Peddv,
serving a 20-year sentence from
Shelby county for being an ac
cessory to robbery; L. P. Woods,
serving IQ years from Van Zan’S'
county for robbery; G. W. ^addis.
serving io years from Montgomery
county for burglary, and Joe
Churehwell. serving three year*
from Joimson county for attempt
ed burglary.
Churehwell and Gaddis were re
captured by officers in their home
Pr.son authorities were tViN'nt
concerning the escape but revealed
that the lour men were liberated
on Armistice Day when they pre
sented an order to which the name

Governor R. s. Sterling, had’ been
forged The forgery was discovered
two days after they had left.

MOSCOW. Nov. 28.—dPV— Soviet '
Russia and Poland, long viewed as
traditional enemy countries, placed
the stamp of final approval today
upon two treaties aimed at peace
ful relations between neighbors.
The act was officially looked
upon as presaging a new era of j
friendly relations between Europe s
easternmost country and the na
tion that lies between her and
much of the rest of the continent.
In the broader sense, foreign
circles saw in the two documents
the completion of a series of
similar agreements — save witn
Rumania—between Russia and all
her European neighbors.
This was pointed out in the ex
pectation that Russia and Prance
would sign a treaty of non-ag
gression and conciliation with Rus
sia tomorrow.
Since these tw'o—France and
Poland—were the last of the
larger European states close to
Russia to complete pacts, foreign
circles looked to Rumania in the
expectation that she would soon
follow suit.
The pacts with Poland were
concluded over a long oeriod or
negotiation. The first one is a
*reatv of non-aggression. one of
the important points In the general
soviet foreign policy. The document
declares the eagerne&s of both
parties to maintain peace, and
commits both to renounce war as
a national policy. This obligates
the two countries mutually to re
frain from aggressive acts.
Both agree not to grant direct
or indirect help to a third state
attacking either of the parties, and
not to enter into any understand
ing. which from the surtklpoint of
aggression would be mimical to
the other party.
The second pact Is a ror Uhry
agreement of conciliation, setting
up a procedure for settling disputes
between the two countries.

GENEVA. Nov. 28. i4'(—The coun
cil of the League of Nations re
ferred the widely discussed Lytlon
report on Manchuria today to a
special assembly of the league.
The council then dismissed the
commission, which had gone to
Manchuria under the chairmanship
of the Englishman. Lord Lytlon.
and spent weeks gathering data on
the Sinc-Japancsc dispite involving
that huge territory.
The decision of the council stipu
lated that the commission, whose
American member was Gen. Frans
R. McCoy, should consider itself
subject to recall if needed.
The action was taken by the coun
cil despite the fact that Yusuke
Matsuoka. Japans special counsel,
entered his country’s reservation as
to the handling of the Manchurian
question by the assembly. Mr Mat
Hioka abstained from voting and the
decision to refer was taken with
out discussion.
The Lytlon commission held that
Japanese action during the famous
Mukden incident of Sept. 1931. was
not a legitimate act of self-defense,
and recommended a special autono
mous Manchuria recognizing Chi
nese sovereignity.
It was understood the assembly
would be convoked on Dec. 5. and
the committee of 19. which previous
ly considered the Manchurian issue,
would gather next Thursday to pre

DALLAS. Nov. 2« —Maury
Hughes, chairman of the democra
tic state executive committee, is
sued a call last night for the
committee to meet m Austin next
Saturday at 10 a- m. at the Drisklll
hotel. He conferred during the
day with Ed Hussion of Houston,
secretary of the committee.
It was understood that several
members of the committee had
requested a meeting to consider a
report of the legislative subcom
mittee which has been drafting a
program to be si>onsored by the
committee for legislative enactment
in order to strengthen party ma
chinery ar.d give the party more
authority over its affairs.
Several members claimed that
the party's power is ineffective
under present laws because the
state committee functions as little
more than an election board and
the party is without means to
enforce discipline over its mem
It was understood that a move
would be made to force out a num
ber of county chairmen and other
party officials whose regularity
was questioned on the grounds
that they did not support Mrs.
Miriam A. Ferguson, governor
elect. but voted for her republican
opponent. Orville Bullington.
NEW YORK. Nov. 28—♦**>—The
stock market began the new week
with traders still taking a watch
ful attitude today and accepting a
further slump m sterling exchange
The somewhat better undertone
which develoiied Saturday was still
apparent, however, and such light
selling as appeared was readily
absorbed. Price movements were
in the mam too narrow to mean
much, although a few shares lost (
a point or so in the early trading
These losses were mostly regained |
by midday, however, and a num
ber of the leaders were then frac
tionally higher.
Losses of about a point in Amer
ican Telephone. American can and
Ca«e were virtually recovered Al-,
lied Chemical more than regained
a l-polnt loss. National Biscuit was
a soft spot, slipping off 1 3-4
points, which was not fully recov
ered. Westinghouse was firm, ris
ing a fraction, and Coca Cola, re
cent soft spot, showed signs of
short covering, with a 2-pomt rise
U. S Steel, after dipping a frac
tion, recovered to show a frac
tional gain.
Week-pnd trade reviews indicated
that business was taking the usual
course- for this time of ywir. Stand
ard Statistics Co. said Business i
continues to recede at a rate equal
to seasonal, or somewhat greater."
The war debt problem, and the
forthcoming session of congress,
were widely mentioned as injecting
elements of uncertainty, but *n
any case, the business trend it this
time is normally downward, and
if tlie recession does not exceed
the usual seasonal proportions. Wall
Street will not be disturbed.
The October railway net operat
ing income reports attracted con
siderable attention, in that many
of the leading carriers were able
to show tnrreases over the like j
month of last year. Gross, how
ever. was generally lower, so that j
the gains in net merely reflected
curtailment of expenses. How long
the roads may be able to hold their
maintenance expenditures to the
such low levels remains problemati
cal. Railroad purchase of steel
this year will probably be the
smallest in more than a genera
tion. One steel expert estimates
that the total amount of steej
rails rolled by mills this year will
be the smallest since 1877.
