Hl By E Baby Bond Bonus Passed Over President’s Veto PAYMENT of the veterans’ bonus by * means of baby bonds payable on de mand was enacted into law by con gress, and the money for the ex-sol diers will be available on June 15. The Harrison compromise bonus bill that went through the senate and house easilj’, was vetoed by President Roose velt. The house immediately and en thusiastically repassed the measure. The senate was a little more deliber ate, but within three days it, too, had overridden the disapproval of the Chief Executive, and the bill was made law. The vote in the senate was 76 to 19. In the house it had been 324 to 61. It was a notable fact that all the senators —95 in number, for Huey Long’s successor has not yet taken his seat —were present and voting. Notable, but not strange when one remembers this is an election year. Fifty-seven Democrats. 16 Republicans and 3 Rad icals—La Follette of Wisconsin, Ship stead and Benson of Minnesota —voted for the bill, while 12 Democrats and 7 Republicans voted against it The galleries were filled and there was wild cheering when the vote was announced. Republican senators amused themselves and the spectators by twit ting the Democrats on their failure to stand by their chief, the most voluble of the twitters being Senator Hastings of Delaware. Informed of the vote, President Roosevelt at once ordered government departments to prepare for payment of the bonus certificates as quickly as accuracy will permit. Secretary of the Treasury Morgenthau said that the payment would be the most difficult mechanical task the treasury had faced In its history. He said the treasury would need $2,500,000 and the veter ans’ administration $5,000,000 to in crease the force to take care of the job. More than seven million interest calculations will be necessary. Al Smith’s Indictment of the New Deal ««\UE CAN either take on the man- ▼Y tie of hypocrisy, or we can take a walk; and we’ll probably do the latter.” These words of Al fred E. Smith in his speech at the Ameri can Liberty league dinner in Washington were perhaps the most interesting and signifi cant of his utterances on that occasion, for he professed ,’ to be speaking for “the dis ciples of Jefferson. is « I M * ■ "Mv « j Al Smith land” and concerning their action in the Democratic national convention next June when the dele gates are asked to indorse the doings of the Roosevelt administration. There could be no misunderstanding Smith’s meaning, and he must now be con sidered the leader of the conserva tive Democrats in their revolt against the policies of the New Dealers. The concern of the administration Dem ocrats is now as to how extensive will be the bolt; and whether the conserva tives will put up their own ticket, sup port the Republican nominee or mere ly stay away from the polls. Of course in any case the Republican cause will be aided materially, unless the guesses of its leaders are all wrong. New Deal Democrats were quite un dismayed by the Smith speech, which they declared was weak and ineffective. They announced that Majority Leader Joseph T. Robinson of the senate would deliver the official reply in a radio address, and unofficial answers to Smith’s denunciations came from various sources. One of the latter, by Donald R’.chberg and Melvin D. Hil dreth on behalf of the National Pro gressive league, dug up this quotation from one of Smith’s speeches in the 1928 compaign: •* ‘The cry of socialism has been patented by the powerful interests that desire to put a damper on pro gressive legislation. Failing to meet arguments fairly and squarely, spe cial interest falls back on the old stock phrase of socialism ... To refer to the remedies for all these evils as state socialism is not constructive statesmanshp, it is not leadership; and leadership is what this country is hun gry for today.” The Richberg statement continued: ‘‘lf Governor Smith was right in 1928, then by that same token and by his own once powerful arguments Alfred E. Smith must be wrong today, when he is giving aid and comfort to the op ponents of progressive policies which he formerly espoused.” Mr. Smith in his Liberty league speech never once named President Roosevelt but he specifically put ou that gentleman the full blame for repu diation of most of the planks in the Democratic platform of 1932, which he declared was the best ever put forth in this country. “Millions and millions of Democrats just like myself, all over the country, still believe that platform,” he shouted. “And what we want to know is why it wasn’t carried out And listen. There is only one man in the United States of America that can answer that question.” Stately Funeral of England’s Late King FOR two minutes Tuesday afternoon (London time) there was silence throughout all the vast British empire. In St. George’s chapel at Windsor the last rites were being performed over the remains of the dead king, George V, by the archbishop of Canterbury, assisted by the archbishop of York and the bishop of Windsor. The late rul er’s body had been lying in state for Pick Jackson and Cleve- ITS ard © Western Newspaper Union two days in Westminster hall, London, and thousands upon thousands of mourning Britons had passed sadly by the bier, while other throngs filled all the churches at special services. In the funeral procession King Edward VIII walked behind the catafalque wearing the uniform of an admiral of the fleet. With him were his broth ers and after them came innumerable representatives of foreign nations, these Including kings and princes. The United States was represented by Nor man Davis, ambassador-at-large. Albert Sarraut Becomes Premier of France E'RANCE’S new government, under * Albert Sarraut as premier, it is hoped will stand up until the spring elections. If it does, the results will ■r not be happy for Italy ' f° r 11 take a muc h stronger stand in sup fWg port of the League of Nations than did that ’ of Laval. The new ? fo re te n minister is Pierre-Etienne Flan din, noted for his pro- British tendencies; and i Joseph Paul-Boncour, no friend of Mussolini, ..'LL . is the minister of state concerned chiefly with league affairs. In other respects there is nothing especially notable about the Sarraut cabinet. Regnier is re tained as finance minister, and he Is committed to the Laval policy of de fending the franc. Flandin went to London for the funeral of King George, and it Is ru mored in Paris that he would sound out British bankers on the subject of a loan of three billion francs which the French treasury sorely needs. With Laval in the discard, the British might look on this suggestion with favor. Liberals Win Most Seats in Greek Election GREECE held its first general elec tion since the restoration of King George, and while no single party won a clear majority in the parliament, the Liberals or Venizellsts secured a com manding position with about 135 of the 300 seats. The next party in strength is the Kondylis-Tsaldaris com bination with 125. The Venizelists an nounced they would give full support to the king; their leader, Themis tocles Sophoulis, said he was ready to co-operate in the formation of a coali tion government, which is what George wants. Leaders of Jewry Plan Exodus From‘Germany IF PLAN,S announced in St. Louis by leaders of world Jewry are carried out, there is to be another exodus, this time from Germany where the Jews are greatly oppressed by the Hitler ites. Sir Herbert Samuel, eminent British Jew, attending the national council of Jewish federations and wel fare funds, said a definite method would be formulated soon to provide for the gradual emigration of at least 100,000 of the German reich’s estimat ed 430,000 Jewish population. The un dertaking will be financed by a fund of about $15,000,000 raised by English and American Jews. As many refugees as possible will seek haven in Palestine. Others, as immigration laws permit, will be taken to America, Canada, England and Eo ropean countries free from anti- Semitic restrictions. “We cannot hope to take all Jews from Germany,” said Sir Herbert “Many of the older generation, most of whom are living on their savings, must die there. It is the young Ger man Jew, helpless and hopeless now, whom we would aid. Our object is to set him up in another country as a self-dependent, self-reliant citizen— not to make him a name on a relief list” Three Convictions in Morro Castle Case A JURY in the United States District court in New York returned ver dicts of guilty against acting Capt. William F. Warms and three co-de fendants in the criminal negligence trial resulting from the disastrous fire that swept the Morro Castle off Asbury Park, September 8, 1934, taking a toll of 134 lives. Besides Warms, those convicted were Eben Starr Abbott, chief engineer of the burned ship; Henry E. Cabaud, executive vice president of the New York & Cuba Mail Steamship com pany, operators of the Ward Line, and the New York & Cuba company itself. Charges of negligence and coward ice on the part of officers and crew of the liner were made by survivors testifying at the trial. Abbott was shown to have scrambled into one of the first lifeboats put overboard after ordering an assistant to go below and investigate the progress of the fire. Warms was accused of delaying the sending out of an SOS until it was too late. Six Army Flyers Killed in Plane Collision DURING night formation flying near Honolulu, two army planes col lided above the Hawaii military air base and fell in flames. Six of the fly ers were instantly killed; two escaped by bailing out. The dead were: Lieut. William G. Beard, twenty eight. San Francisco, pilot of one of the planes; Staff Sergt Bernard F. Jablonowsky, thirty-three; Private John B. Hartman, twenty-seven, Chicago; Private Bruce Taylor, twenty-six, Pu yallup, Wash.; Private Truman J. Gardner, twenty-seven, Olney, 111., and Private Gordon M. Parkhurst, forty thrbe, Yorkville. N. Y. Death of G. W. Wickersham, Eminent Attorney NOTEWORTHY among recent deaths Is that of George W. Wickersham of New York, who was attorney gen eral of the United States in the Taft administration and for many years one of the country’s leading corpora tion lawyers. He was seventy-seven years old. and died of heart disease in a taxicab. Mr. Wickersham was chairman of the famous Hoover commission named to investigate prohibition and other law enforcement in 1929. The commis sion’s report opposed repeal, but the document was accompanied by the members’ individual statements in which a majority urged repeal or mod ification of the eighteenth amendment. The net result was confusing. Much good work, overlooked by the public in the controversy over prohi bition, nevertheless was done by the commission. Its exhaustive reports, filed early in 1931, covered many phases of the crime problem and were regarded as important contributions in that field. Surgeon General Cumming Will Retire February 1 FAR. HUGH S. CUMMING announced that on February 1 he would re tire as surgeon general of the United States public health service, “because of long service and health that isn’t too good.” He has been in the service since 1894 and has had four terms as its head. His administration is cred ited with completion of the quarantine system; Inauguration of preimmigra tion examinations at American con sulates; establishment of a national leprosarium and national narcotic farms, and construction of eight ma rine hospitals. His influence in control and treat ment of bubonic plague and yellow fever has been world wide. Many na tions have honored him with decora tions. It was believed in Washington that President Roosevelt would appoint as the new surgeon general Dr. Thomas H. Parran, Jr., state health commis sioner of New York and assistant sur geon general on leave. Federal Relief Costs Analyzed by K. K. Hoyt THE present federal relief program, depending principally on work re lief, CCC and public works, is alone costing approximately as much as the fourfold program which went before and which embraced these three items plus direct relief which has now been returned to the states, according to a study of the relief problem and the government finances by Kendall K. Hoyt in the Analyst. For immediate purposes, at least, there is no prospect of much reduction in the rate of federal expenditure, ac cording to Mr. Hoyt. In order to pre vent the states from trooping back for more relief funds the government must keep its pledge to employ the arbitrary three and one-half millions of persons which have been carried since last No vember principally under WPA and CCC. In dollar terms this means that, according to budget estimates, the out lay for recovery and relief for the fis cal year ending June 30, 1936, will be almost the same as that for the preced ing fiscal year, namely, three billions in round numbers. Victory of Long Faction in Louisiana Primary HUEY LONG’S lieutenants, follow ing the victory of their primary slate in Louisiana, declared that the late senator’s fight on the Roosevelt administration would be pushed, with the share-the-wealth program as the spearhead of attack. Returns on the primary indicate a majority of more than 100,000 for senator, governor and other state officers. Nomination is equivalent to election. Premier Nessim Pasha of Egypt Resigns PREMIER NESSIM PASHA, weary of his Job since the anti-British riots started November 13, has handed the resignation of his cabiet to King Fnad I. The resignation was accepted. Nessim found it exhausting to keep an equilibrium between the conflicting forces of the throne, the British resi dency, the nationalists and their com patriots. But the final blow, dealt him by the British government at London, was the thinly veiled ultimatum to Egyptian Nationalism, in the form of verbal instructions for negotiations for an Anglo-Egyptian treaty. The sting to Egyptian pride was in the warning that if the present negotiations fail, the British consider their hands will be free and will revise their Egyptian policy. Developments in League Adverse to Italy RECENT League of Nations develop ments have gone heavily against Italy’s aspirations for African con quest. Of four major actions taken by ... asserr> bl e( l powers led again by Anthony Eden of Great Britain, two definitely were antagonistic to Italy, Bf* ;* * one was a draw and one was somewliat in nF the Fascist state’s fa- H vor. They were: 1- The league coun j cll deeded f 0 move gOfe fy w toward an oil embargo against Italy. A com- Anthony Eden ni jf tee O f experts was appointed to ascertain if oil sanctions could be made effective. 2. Britain announced a military al liance with France, Greece, Turkey and Jugoslavia and these nations pledged aid should Italy attack Britain because of sanctions. Rumania and Czecho slovakia promptly joined this group, making seven nations pledged to com bined action against Italy should war come over efforts to stop the Italo- Ethioplan conflict. 3. The league declined to send a neutral Investigating body to Ethiopia, which Ethiopia asked and to which Italy consented. 4. The league conciliation committee published a report that no new peace proposals are possible at the present time, and that the league should pur sue a policy of watchful waiting. 4 i i : 1 —i . ; I THE ELY MINER. ELY. MINN. NATIONAL PRESS Washington.—The American Liberty league has laid aside its swaddling clothes and has Liberty League put on long pants Steps Out ln 1116 fiel(J of pol ‘ it 1c s. Although comparatively new as a group and promoted consistently as non partisan, the league can now be said to have plunged headlong into the po litical warfare. If Its first big rally can stand as a criterion, Its influence is due to be felt in an important way In the forthcoming national elections. This rally that really marked the league’s campaign debut was a pic turesque thing. It was picturesque first because of the time and the place and the very nature of the thing and the manner of approach to the voters of the country but It was more pic turesque and more Important as well because the headline speaker was Al fred E. Smith, ond time Democratic can didate for the Presidency, and by all odds the most colorful and pungent speaker of the present day. It was a dinner of more than 2,000 persons— from every state In the Union—and It was held in exactly the same rooms of the Mayflower hotel here where two weeks earlier President Roosevelt had addressed about the same number of persons at the Jackson day SSO-a-plate dinner. As a further note of interest, attention might be called to the fact that the meeting was presided over by Borden Burr, a lifelong Alabama Dem ocrat, and the other speakers were Dr. Neal Carothers, a Southern Democrat, long head of the economics depart ment of Lehigh university in Pennsyl vania, and former Federal Judge Charles I. Dawson of Louisville, Ky., a Republican. I referred above to Mr. Smith as be ing a colorful speaker, and from all of the comments I have heard, it seems to be the consensus that never has he justified the description better than in his league speech. He was Introduced by Mr. Burr as “Al Smith of Amer ica.” and proceeded to assure his audi ence that included millions listening by radio that he placed patriotism above party, that he was a candidate for no office under the sun. that he had no ax to grind and that such critical shots as he might take were without personal animosity for any one. But he did not pull his punches when he pilloried the New Deal and he showed no mercy when he drew the deadly parallel between the Demo cratic platform of 1932 and the policies w’hich Mr. Roosevelt had carried through. I believe it may be said that he reached the peak of his speech when he laid on the speaker’s stand copies of the Democratic platform of 1932 and the Socialist platform of the same year and in his best East side twang he challenged anyone to deny that Mr. Roosevelt had been elected on a Democratic ticket and had car ried out the Socialist promises. The President’s “breathing spell” ut terance, his message to congress on the state of the Union, his staff of ad visers, his monetary policies formed other meaty subjects which the former governor of New York picked to pieces in his own inimitable wmy. He begged congress to assert itself again and quoted from the Bible in his plea it should return to the father’s house and be again one of the three branches of the federal government. He said it took courage for a lifelong Democrat to say the things he was saying, but there is no gainsaying he displayed what it took. Through the speech was Mr. Smith’s chosen theme that a great danger lies ahead, a danger that the New Deal will destroy everything which he held had made America the outstanding na tion that it is. He accused the Presi dent of having arrayed class against class and asserted that what the na tion faces Is the most gigantic tax bur den ever known. To this he added that it will not be the rich who will pay, nor the poor, but “that vast army of individuals with incomes from a hundred dollars a month to five thou sand dollars a year.” Finally, in conclusion, Mr. Smith said: “Let me give this solemn warning: There can be only one capital, Wash ington or Moscow. • There can be only one atmosphere of government, the clear, pure fresh air of free America, or the foul breath of communistic Russia. There can be only one flag, the Star and Stripes, or the flag of the godless union of the Soviets. There can be only one na tional anthem, ‘The Star-Spangled Banner’ or ’The Internationale,’ there can be only one victor. If our Constitution wins, we win. But if the* Constitution —stop, stop there —the Constitution cannot lose.” • • « But what of the significance of the league dinner and the Smith speech? Prior to the din- The Smith ner, the league’s ex- Walkout ecutive council met in secret. Whether it committed the league to a definite stand was not formally announced, yet surely there are grounds upon which to base a statement that it means to support candidates and platforms on the conservative side. With equal emphasis. It can be said that Mr. Smith has walked out on that section of the Democratic party that sticks by Mr. Roosevelt He said It was a choice either to “put on the mantle of hypocrisy or we can take a walk." He explained it probably would be the latter course. And frankly it seems with the personal following that he has. a walkout by Mr. Smith cannot be described as oth erwise than serious to the party from which that group is defected. It has all of the earmarks of an interesting political situation. Immediately after Mr. Smith had spoken, quite a few Democrats in con- IONAL TOPICS INTERPRETED WASHINGTON. D.C. BLDG. gress fired back at him and in defense of the New Deal. Men like Represent ative Doughton of North Carolina, a Democratic wheelhorse as chairman of the powerful ways and means com mittee; Speaker Byrnes, and a flock of others. They insisted generally that the Smith barrage was more helpful to the Democrats than campaign speeches they themselves could make. Administration leaders in the execu tive departments are beginning to fire also, but they are smart enough to let the enthusiasm aroused by the speech die down before they attempt to upset arguments advanced by Mr. Smith. I have no doubt, from the signs even now cropping up, that an effort will be made in congress to discredit the league. It looks like Senator Black, Alabama Democrat and chairman of the senate lobby committee, probably will dig Into the league’s files to show how it was financed to a large extent by such wealthy men as the Duponts, among others. Such an investigation likewise will carry an undercurrent of a movement to do away with political Influence of such men as John J. Raskob, former Democratic national chairman, a league director, and Jouett Shouse, former executive chairman of the Democratic national committee and the league president. If that fight gets started it will be a mudslinging beauty. So, summarized, the picture result ing from the league’s dinner is that of a major feud, as well as a major polit ical movement, because there is a real ly bitter fight between personalities in sight as well as the possibilities of a third party movement. In the situation as it now stands, however, the Republican party holds the key. Smith and his following and the league membership generally can be counted in definite opposition to the New Deal and most all of its works only on condition that a candi date and a platform, viewed by them as sound, are put forward by the Re publicans. If the Republicans turn too far to the radical side in their efforts to match the Democratic position (which necessarily must be in support of everything the President has done), then, there is likely to be a third par ty, which would make predictions of the outcome worthless. Congress frequently goes off on a tangent in which it will set about ex posing this or that Digging or the other among Up Secrets the practices of pri vate business. In the last several years it has been particu larly active in exposing to public view secrets of corporations and individual representatives and senators have blown off much steam concerning sal aries paid business executives and they have directed criticism at private busi ness as well for some of its other ex penditures. A few years ago Senator Norris of Nebraska, among others, spoke at great length in criticism of our gov ernment’s diplomatic service because of the salaries paid and the expendi tures allowed for operation of our for eign diplomatic offices. The Norris at tack apparently did considerable dam age to the diplomatic service because it made many capable men fearful of entering that field where highly trained men are necessary. But all of the time during which criticisms have been leveled at private business on account of salaries paid business executives and because of other expenses, the senate Itself has been going ahead from year to year using taxpayers’ money to suit its own purposes. For instance, Col. Edwin A. Halsey, secretary of the senate, lately has made public his annual report cov ering senate operations and It shows that the taxpayers’ money to the ex tent of $3,296,852 had been spent for maintenance of that one branch of congress. There are 96 senators, each of whom has an office staff; there are some 30-odd committees In operation, each with a staff, and there is the reg ular senate organization with a large personnel. Consequently, salaries alone take up a considerable chunk of the total outlay, but Colonel Halsey’s re port disclosed that general “contin gent expenses’’ of the senate had eaten up $701,000. Included in this total of “contingent expenses” was an Item of $236,000 for the cost of senate investi gations in the last year. Almost half of this amount was used by the muni tions investigation committee headed by Senator Nye. Republican of North Dakota, who lately was made the sub ject of criticism on the senate floor because of his committee’s attitude. Congressional expenditures, and the house is as bad as the senate, long have been spoken of Reckless in a humorous vein. Spending Many times in past years the senate has “broken into print” when some newspaper correspondent discovered what appeared to be new means of wasting money in order to provide additional comforts for the senators. For instance, it has been a practice a long time for the senate to supply its members and staff with mineral water, Washington city water being good enough for its half mil lion residents but unsatisfactory, or perhaps unhealthy, for the senators. Ice has to be supplied the senators and all sorts of service must he main tained to enable the legislators to work in comfort High priced automobiles are main tained for the speaker of the house and for the Vice President who is president of the senate. Each must have a chauffeur and the chauffeurs are paid like other workers around the Capitol, out of the taxpayers' money.

The unnecessary air disaster in Ha waii, two United States bombing planes destroyed in collision while flying “in formation” and six men killed, causes aviators to say that they object to night formation flying.
