BERLIN. Oct. 14. (*>>—The United
States had assurance today that the
German government would leave no
stone unturned In prosecuting
Nazis who molest Americans.
In a meeting at which American
Ambassador William E. Dodd cited
the cases of at least 27 United
States citizens allegedly assaulted
within the last few months. Foreign
Minister Von Neurath—
1. Apologized profusely for keep
ing the Ambassador waiting six
2. Promised that nothing would
be left undone to handle the pro
tests satisfactorily; and
3. Suggested that future mutual
discussions be arranged to settle
; the matter definitely.
, Before the ambassador finally
, gained an audience, Von Neurath
* and the German cabinet considered

! It was apparent, despite the re
. assurance of Von Neurath, that
* Ambassador Dodd did not consider

Embattled Sidewalk Cafe Owners Of
Gotham Enlist Famous Folk In ‘Cause’
—III. ;
The light started here when five
sidewalk cafes in lower fifth Ave
nue and Greenwich Village got
legal notices issued by Borough
President Samuel Levy, ordering
them to remove their tables and
chairs from the sidewalks by Oc
tober 1, on the grounds that they
were “obstructions and encum
Assemblyman Herbert Brownell,
Jr., who is a Greenwich Villager,
volunteered his services to defend
the sidewalk cafes. Pirst, he de
manded legitimate reasons from
the Borough President for having
issued the notice. He got vague
answers, he asserts, such as “an
onymous persons asked that they
be closed up.”
Second, Brownell states that It
seems curious to him that Samuel
Levy should issue such an order
when Levy is an owner of Chat
ham Walk, the snootiest sidewalk
cafe in New York, which happens
to be out in a parking space owned
by the Hotel Chatham and so
would not come under this order.
Brownell has organized a com
mittee to combat the closing or
der. Heywood Broun, Dorothy
Parker, George Jean Nathan, Tony
Sarg, John Sloan, Hendrick van
Loon, Inez Haynes Irwin and
other celebrated New Yorkers have
rallied enthusiastically to the de
fense, even signifying their will
ingness to take the sidewalk soap
box in defense of the sidewalk cafe.
“Neighbors” Join Defense
The Washington Square Asso
ciation, composed of conservative,
old First Families who still live
in brownstone mansions facing
Washington Square, has lined up
to help defend the cafes. Apart
ment owners and store keepers in
the vicinity have followed suit,
stating that these sidewalk cafes
have increased business. Hundreds
of isolated persons have signed
petitions to have the notice re
voked, girls and boys who have
eaten outdoors and loved it, tired
business men who found their
spirits revived by sitting in side
walk cafes, mothers of families
who have enjoyed one gala evening
at the Jlrevoort or Longchamps
sidewalk cafes on lower Fifth Ave
nue. One card came to Brownell
from an old lady wl\ describes
herself as a “New Yorker, 82 years
old,” Who, from buses as she rode
by, has watched folks enjoying
themselves in these sidew&V cafes
and thinks it would be a shame to
take away such simple, commend
able pleasure.
To date, New York has 20 side
walk cafes, a majority of them in
the Village. Every cafe manager
who has one reports Increased
business through them and a nec
essary increase in hiring waiters,
cooks, dishwashers, Jean Barrere,
manager of the Brevoort Hotel,
who put out the first sidewalk cafe
in New York, states that they have
averaged more than 500 guests an
A recent dosing order may spell
the doom of sidewalk cafes, like
the one pictured above, in Man
hattan. But it won’t effect out
door restaurants Idle the Chat
ham Walk (at right), which hap
pens to be situated in a parking
space instead of on a sidewalk
and also happens to be owned at
least partly by Borough President
Levy of Manhattan.
Map Legal Fight
Brownell's first legal step was
to secure a* hearing before the
Commission of Public Works.
“They must prove, first, that side
walk cafes are an obetruction," he
stated. “To date, all sidewalk
cafes are located on only the wide
sidewalks. With tables, chairs and
greener}-, none of them extends
farther out onto the sidewalk than
do other building’s steps or fa
cades along the street. The Bre
voort, for instance, doesn't extend
as far out onto the sidewalk along
Fifth Avenue as does the Mark
Twain house steps, ,at the corner.
“If the city wants to go into the
subject of sidewalk obstructions
they might take up the question
of newsstands, sidewalk vendors,
and the unpleasant habit of leav
ing ashes and garbage cans on the
curb. I feel confident that with
the valiant support of so many
hundreds of interested persons,
we will win."
For “The Defense’’—
Notables in New York grow
lyric in their defense of sidewalk
cafes. George Jean Nathan says,
“Sidewalk cafes are a note of
charm in a city suffering from ex
cess of dullness.’* Jean Barrere,
Brevoort manager, points out:
“Our waterfront has been turned
Into factories, ashcans and rail
road yards. We lack color tn our
New York life. Sidewalk cafes in
troduce it.1* Nathan Straus. Pres
ident of the Park Association of
New York, starts off defending the
sidewalk cafes for their healthy
zest and ends by quoting poetry.
Inez Haynes Irwin deplores that,
just ss Americans have begun to
learn something about the simple
pleasures of living from Continen
tals, the city government steps in
The concensus of opinion through
the Village is that sidewalk cafes
express the section's spirit mors
than any one other thing could,
that to abolish them now means
eliminating the romance, the col
or. the simple joy in living that
they bring.

These statements were made oy

For Better Schools
Mr. Roosevelt emphasized the im
portance of cutting local govern
mentcosts "by good business metn

"The quality of our teaching in

HARLINGEN, Oct. 14.—The out
look for acreage of winter crops
of vegetables in Texas remains veri
uncertain, says G. D. Clark, fruit
and truck estimator for the U. S.
Dept, of Agrt., with offices in Aus
tin in his first truck crop notes of
the season.
Plant Inga Delayed
Plantings are greatly delayed in
the Lower Rio Grande Valley, in
Hidalgo county growers were able
to do considerable work the latter
part of September, and with favor
able weather plantings should go
actively forward during October,
Due to the character of the soil and
the topgraphy of the land .the
growers in Cameron county are hav
ing more difficulty in getting the
land prepared for planting and as
a result are behind the growers w
Hidalgo county. The Valley grow
ers Intend to plant substantial
acreage of all winter vegetables, and
particularly cabbage and carrots.
The ultimate acreage will depend
upon future weather conditions nnd
ability to secure financing. Under
the most favorable weather condi
tions. the harvesting date for most
crops will be delayed and not much
tonnage can be expected prior to
February from the Valley. Willacy
county growers are contemplating an
Increase in the onion acreage and
should be able to get the seed into
the ground on time if future weath
er is normal
Other areas of the state are plan
ning Increased acreages of most
vegetables, and there is no prospect
for a shortage of plantings in the
state, however, the tonnage of most
crops will be light until February.
Onion Inrmuw Sera
Preliminary reports indicate a
probable increase in the plantings
of Bermuda onions in south Tex
as .The most marked increase is ex
pected in Willacy county. An acre
age is planned for Zapata county
While there may be no increase at
Laredo in Webb county, the Win
ter Garden area will probably plant
heavier than a year ago. Corpus
Christi plantings are uncertain, but
no reduction is expected from the
planted acreage of a year ago. At
Laredo and in the Winter Garden
the first seed beds are up and con
ditions are favorable.
Based upon Oct. 1 condition, the
production of onions in the late
northern states Is forecast at 16.
177,000 bushels. This represents
about an average crop for this
group of states. The large crop of
last season was placed at 20.453.000
bushels, while the small crop of wo
years ago totaled 12,911,000 bushels.
The production of Danish cab
bage in the late northern states is
forecast at 193,600 tons, or roughly
amount one-third less than an aver
age crop. Previous forecasts have in
diet ted that the domestic type cab
bage in this group of states Is *iae
about one-third below the averags
The acreage of fall cabbage m
South Cantina and Virginia is
somewhat under that of a year ago.
South Carolina Is estimated to oa%e
1000 acres compared with 1.100
teres last fall, while Virginia plant
ings are 160 acres as against 200 a
year ago
