Outlaws It Both As Econ
omic And Political Wea
pon, At Home, Abroad
United Press Staff Correspondent
—Secretary of State Cordell Hull
yesterday outlawed as a political
weapon the economic boycott
which framers of the League of
Nations conceived as a fearsome
bogey to compel nations to ob
serve treaty obligations.
Hull said the United States, as
a matter of general policy, could j
not subscribe to the use of the
economic boycott, either as a po
litical or trade union weapon. He
said that past experineces had
shown that the United States
would lose $5 in decreased ex
ports for evefy dollar's worth of
damage inflicted upon the power
against which the economic boy
cott was invoked. He explained I
this was because the United States [
customarily exports more goods
than it imports.
With this statement Hull laid
to rest efforts extending over a
period of years to have the Unit
ed States invoke an economic
boycott against one or another
foreign power. He also served
warning to certain private inter
ests and individuals in this coun-1
try who have been advocating the |
boycott that, economically, they
would be cutting off their noses
to spite their faces if their pro
posals were carried into practice,
i An economic boycott against
Japan was actively sought by a
number of college professors and !
private organizations in this
country three years ago as a
means of compelling Japan to ob
serve her treaty obligations with
regard to China. At that time
Japanese troops had invaded
Manchuria, in what was regarded
here as a violation of Japan's ob
ligations as a member of the
League of Nations; of the nine
power and four power treaties
and the Briand-Kellogg anti-war
Henry L. Stimson, then secre
tary of state, was known to have
toyed with the idea for a t;me
and there was considerable talk
in Geneva that the League of Na
tions might seek a universal eco
nomic boycott against Japan as a
treaty violator. The suggestion

Pellagra Found In 27 Fam
ilies In County; Diet
Instructions Given
The report of Mrs. Nelle Dot
son, emergency home demonstra
tion agent,, for August showed
that her department had served
551 white and 1$8 negro fami
lies. A total of 32 demonstra
tions were given 659 visits were
made, 27,958 quarts were can
ned, and approximately 106
pounds of vegetables and 162'
pounds of fruits were dried. I
Twenty-siven families were found !
to be suffering from pellagra, j
19 of which were given instruc-f
tions in food selection. These!
monthly reports require a writ- j
ten narrative and the following
by Mrs. Dotion shows some of
the problems, not only of her de
partment, but the local emer
gency relief administration.
The canning department last i
week reported that 5791 quarts
of fruits and vegetables had been >
canned by 106 families visited!
by the canning leaders during
the week. Apples took the first
place with 1570 Quarts. Peaches
followed and next in order were
tomatoes and beans. Twenty
one varities of fruits, vegetables
and preserved goods were em
braced in the list.
Mrs. Dotson's report on her
workin the county has been pre
pared as follows:
1.—I am following Miss Turn
er's plan of county organization.
The county is divided into six
teen communities. The workers
visit these in rotation checking
on the canning being done, possi
bilities for future canning and
offering suggestions and help if
needed. We call on each family
at least once a month, oftener if!
possible. Some of our families'
are in remote mountain sections
and can only be reached by walk
in* several miles.
I have only added one leader
to my group since taking over
the work. She was selected from
our relief roll. She has had
practical experience in canning
and is proving- h very capable
canning leader.
One of oifr difficulties is the
small amount of mileage allowed
the canning leaders. Three dol
lars a week does not pay for the
gas they use and does not begin

Republicans Run Close
Third To New Party
Candidates In State
MILWAUKEE, Sept. 19. (UP)
—The voters of Wisconsin, who
abandoned rock-bound Republican
allegiance two years ago to help
elect President Roosevelt, today
affirmed their faith in the Demo
cratic New Deal, incomplete re
turns from yesterday's primary
Scattered but representative
tabulations showed the Democrats
under Gov. Albert G. Schmedeman
to be leading the Republican and
new-born progressive parties in
the total number of votes cast.
Schmedeman—chief target of
the LaFollette progressive—was
assured of renomination on the
Democratic ticket on the basis of
early returns.
The Republicans, although ap
parently failing to reclaim the
state from the Democrats, sought
to heap vengeance upon the pro
gressives who bolted their ranks
after 40 years of attachment.
The G.O.P. was running the new
party a close call for second posi
tion in both the gubernatorial and
senatoiial votes.
The new party, springing from
the left wing of the Republican
party, was established by the La
Follette brothers, whose family
dominated Wisconsin politics for
more than a quarter of a century.
It was designed as the basis of a
new national political alignment
attracting the liberals of both old

Robert M. LaFollette, Jr., had no

in his candidacy for return to the

Depot dairy farmer and choice of
the state organization, led the Re
publican field for governor.
John M. Callahan, former Dem
ocratic national committeeman
from Milwaukee, led the five can
didates for his party's nomination
to oppose Senator LaFollette in
the November election.
John B. Chappie, Ashland edi
tor, was unopposed for the Re
publican senatorial nomination.
Returns from 1267, or nearly
half of the 2915 precincts in the
state, for governor, were:
Democrat — Schmedeman, 62,
888; William B. Rubin, 14,155;
Richard F. Lehman, 1,628.
Republican — Greene, 36,701;

This is the third of a aeries of six articles reviewing thej history
and contents of the U. S. Constitution, in observance of "Consti
tution Week" and the 147th anniversary of the Constitution's
birth, Sept. 17, 1787.
THE Constitution of the United States divides the government
into three important branches, each devised to be what has
been termed a "check" and a "balance'' to the other two.
As against the legislative, therefore, stand the executive and
the judiciary. Article Two defines powers o* the president and
how he is to be chosen. The manner of choice has been changed
by amendment, but the original method was by means of electors
chosen by the various states.
The electors were to vote for two candidates, the one receiving
the greatest number of votes, if a majority, becoming president,
the second highest, vice-president.
Otherwise, the House of Representatives was to choose the
■ president from the five highest.
Article Two also makes the president commander-in-chief of the
army, navy and militia of the states, apd gives him power', with '
sensatorial consent, to make treaties, and appoint mkjor officials
^under him. "•»>.. r; j ■
Article Three vests judicial powers in a supreme court and such'
inferior courts as Congress may establish. It determines the scope
of federal jurisprudence, provides for trial by jury, and defines
Under Article Four, equal rights are assured as among the
citizens of all states, provision is made for return of escaped
slaves, and for return of escaped prisoners.
Another section anticipates admission of new states into the !
Union, and another guarantees to all states a republican form of
government and protection from invasion.
Article Five provides for amendments to the Constitution. Ar
ticle Six establishes supremacy of the Constitution -over all other
laws of the land and forbids any religious test for holding office.
It also accepts responsibility for all public debts of the Confed
The Sixth and last article provides for ratification of the Con
stitution by nine of the 13 states, to make it effective.

Would Extend Tax Re
lease To All Of Crop
Harvested This Year
Congressman H. P. Fulmer,
representing the second South
Carolina district yesterday tele
graphed Secretary Wallace from
here, asking that the farmers be
permitted to sell or to secure
loans on ail cotton tax free, be
cause of the low estimated pro
duction figure. It is below the
10,000,000 bale figure provided
in the Bankhead act.
Fulmer took the position that
the allotments are unfair in many
instances, and that many farm
ers would not be able to meet
their obligations unless they
were allowed to sell, tax free.
JASPER, Ala., Sept. 19. (UP)
—Senator John H. Bankhead,
author of the Bankhead cotton
control act, last night urged that

States naval officer in 1933 to
inspect the bombs sold to Hon
Yesterday he testified ne naa
shipped tear gas to National
Guard units "all over the coun
try," but added, "I don't know j
whether it was all used."
He said an airplane carrying i
400 pounds of gas to the National
Guard in Rhode Island—scene of
j strike riots—was forced down
i and' guardsmen were compelled to
use rifles.
"If our plane had got through,"
Young said, "the loss of life in
Rhode Island probably would have
been averted."
"What effect would this gas
have upon strikers suffering from
malnutrition?" asked Sen. Homer
T. Bone.
"Far less effect th$n lead bul
lets," Young replied. ,
"I wasn't asking for your opin
ion on the merits of the strike,"
Bone said. "I want to know if
this gas would make a man phy
sically sick from lack of food,
sick for a long time."
"I don't think so," Young said.
Testimony revealed that Fed
eral Laboratories, Inc., were per
mitted by an unnamed Cuban
colonel to see official United
States quotations on guns and
'munitions so the private firm
could underbid the government on
'sales to Cuba.
Young testified he bought $300
worth of flare guns from a Phila
delphia man named Sedgley, and
Senator Arthur Vandenburg said
the man was known as "Sidewalk"
Sedgley because he sold machine
guns on the streets.
Earlier testimony revealed that
last month the state department
warned American munitions man
ufacturers that shipments of air
plane equipment to Germany
might be a violation of the Ver
