EUROPEAN SITUATION IS BECOMING TENSE TWO NEGRO HOLD ■ UPS RESULT IN DEATHS MUSSOLINI PROPOSES \ ALTERING v (By The Associated Press) ROME, Nov. 12, Benito Mussolini tqday put an end to the parliament ary machinery of Italy. He predict ed that the experiment in self ad ministration for industry, commerce and business would lead to a world wide repudiation of the old poltic al methods. His system apparently embodies the latest methods of carrying on legislation by the people. To come to a direct ‘point, the new political system, if it may be called such, will be administered by business people instead of politicians. In oth er words, the business man will have more to say, in a direct way, how the government shall be con ducted. Suggests Loaning Large Sums Money Take Care Relief (By The Associated Press)* WASHINGTON, Nov. 12, Anoth er suggestion which is gaining fav or in government councils, is to lend a large number of families ienough money “at One shot” to take them off the relief rolls, and make them self-supporting units.

EUROPEAN SITUATION IS TAUGHT (By The Associated Press) UNDATED, Nov. 11, Europe came to the eve of the Armistice’s 16th anniversary with fear for the future, tempering its celebration of the re turn of peace, in contrast with the delirious joy that greeted the end of the war. It looked apprehensively toward the plebiscite to be taken in the Saar section in January, which seems to indicate the “hang-over” of the past war. This appears to be the chief cloud on the horizon, and can probably be taken as the prevailing mood in the most dangerous war section in the world. ‘ The pMPlscite to be taken in the Saar in January is a small factor in comparison to the large countries directly interested in the proceed* ings, but it is such small, apparent ly inconsequential things, which ig nite the spark culminating in war. All of Europe at the present re presents an armed camp, much the same as during the year or two prior to the Worlg War. The only feature not visual at this time is the actual preparedness of the var ious nations which seem connected with the political situation in Eur oDe. Despite the evidence of progress in the world since 19M> the indica tions of war continue to be delib erately overlooked. During the next few months several pre-scheduled conferences on war-disarmament are to be held. Taken into considera tion, will probably be the fact that many individual meetings have been held before-hand in which nothing toward disarmament has been ac complished. According to prevailing opinions, no actual accomplish ments are expected to be arrived at during the coming meetings. Ramsay MacDonald, Premier of England, stated that the Saar pleb iscite might possibly result in hard feelings amongst the nations of Eur ope. He said however, that despite England’s move, or attempt to pro mote peace by disarmament, wfuch proved fruitless, that Great Britain was “in the meantime taking steps to secure a position, that if she is met by aggression, we will be able to defend ourselves.” BOLD PLANS ARE TALKED OF FOR RECOVERY SOON / k 1 _, fpL - AnflAnioliul \ toy me /vssociaiea rTess/ WASHINGTON, Nov. 10, (Copy right), A bold move for a auper re covery under which industry will be directed to expand production, with the government bearing the risk of any losses entailed, is now under con sideration by high administration aides. Gne of the most seriously consider ed plans is to have the government figure out the normal demand for staple commodities and figure out staple commodities and guarantee the purchase of any production with in that amount, for which there is no market. Proponents believe there will be no substantial surpluses if the plan is properly administered. They al so contend that it will be cheaper to take care of the unemployed this way than through direct relief and the banks.
