Treaty Waits for Ratification By HERBERT PLUMMEU ASHINGTON Dec 23 2P That the present admin islration will continue to mark time as far as a general tariff policy is concerned is evi denced by recent white house sug gestions that pre vailing interna tional conditions are not favor able The negotiated tariff idea had a prominent place in the campaign a r g vi m e n ts of President Roosevelt More than nine months have elapsed since his in auguration with little progress made in this direction A biateral treaty has been signed with Colombia but must await rat ification by the national legislatures of the two countries before it be comes effective Repeal of the eighteenth amend ment added new impetus to the old policy of Yankee trading Clothed as he is however with i greater tariff powers than any ever I enjoyed by a president Mr Roose 1 velt as yet has used that authority I in only a few instances I Little Action So Far I Under the broad flexible provi sions ofthe tariff act the president I has it seems been loath to act even I more so than his republican prede cessors These provisions empower the president to raise or lower any spe cific jduty by 50 per cent There has kittle indication that the tariff commission is doing more than marking time Importers say the commission has been flooded with requests for stud ies oa varioua but il any i any import case they have been few and minor When NRA came along addition al powers were granted the presi dent to meet the fears that any in domestic prices would bring a flood of imports He did in effect lay an embargo against importa tions which threatened domestic measures but no addition il powers to lower duties were in luded Hulls Resolution Secretary Hulls activity at the anAmerican conference in Monte ideo in advancing his tariff reso ation calling for downward revision s considered significant At the ame time adhesion of the Latin Vmerican delegates to the Hull res ilution does not imply obligations Tariff changes for that matter not effected at international conferences I President Roosevelt evidently has this in mind as his reason for seem jingly believing for the present at I least that the best method in the direction of world wide reduction in tariff walls lies in the negotiation of bilateral treaties with individual na tions Breeder of Fighting Bulls PCA Head Dies BOGOTA Colombia Dec

4 FREED AS CASE COMES TO END Van der Lubbe Takes No Notice as Court Gives Verdict LEIPZIG Dec 23 The su preme court ended three months of deliberations today with the verdict that Marinus Van der Lubbe 24 a brick mason from Holland must die for setting fire to the reichstag building in Berlin last February At the same time the court freed four communists whom the1 state had held to bo responsible with Van der Lubbe Thus ended one of the most spectacular trials In Ger man history The communists acquitted were Ernst Torgler former communist whip in the reichstag and three Bulgarian refugees Georgi Dimtt roff Blagoi Popoff and Wassil Taneff Takes No Notice Van der Lubbe did not appear to take any notice of the verdict Apathetic at the end as in the be ginningof the trial a grotesque figure in a hunched over position with a shock of tousled hair almost touching his knees he seemed al ready dead If the others defended their lives heroically before the meticulous court the young Hollander gave his by communists and despiied by riazis rib one ex cept his official counsel and his mother in far away Leyden had a good word of him But if Van der Lubbe received no favors he asked none He did not shrink from bearing the burden of a crime that was hailed by govern ment leaders as having made Ger many safe for naziism and he never betrayed his accomplices if any Set Fire Alone Throughout the trial Van der Lubbe insisted that he set the fire alone and unaided To the suave communist leader Torgler the verdict did not seem to come as a surprise He glanced af fectionately at his wife who sat in the first row of spectators next to Dimitroff s mother an elderly woman with a pleasant wrinkled face and a shawl tied around her head peasant fashion Dimitroffs sister was there too an energetic woman like her broth er Dimitroff the voluble who as his own counsel frequently aroused the ire of the court by his remarks took the acquittal with a quiet smile The two other Bulgarians Taneff and Popoff grinned happily Only Spectators Special police precautions includ ing the calling out of a brigade of storm troops to patrol the streets proved unnecessary when only a handful of spectators appeared braving the rain outside the court building The official wording of the charge on which Van der Lubbe was found guilty was high treason in conjunction with an act of insur rectionary incendiarism and an act of simple incendiarism Court officials announced that Torgler and the Bulgarians would Tnrn to Oliimn 4t SENTENCED TO DEATH How Far Yon Little Candle Throws

the full text of an Episcopal letter published throughout the nation in Catholic Austrias newspapers today In exceptionally outspoken terms the bishops wained their country men to turn their backs on false doctrines of popular sovereignty and reject with equal vigor the ra cial mania and religious errors of Hitleriam Futile and Unchristian The talk about the sovereignty of the people is not only futile and unchristian hut in fact is really atheistic said the letter which is to be read in all pulpits Sunday From popular sovereignty and unbridled freedom it is only a step to the ruinous errors of commun ism socialism and terrible harbingers of death for the bourgeois society While thus bluntly denouncing the democratic critics of the Dollfuss regime the bishops reserved their sharpest attack for the nazis Religions Battle The struggle against Hitlerism led in Austria by Dollfuss and his associates was pictured as a reli gious battle Catholics were urged to support the Austrian chancellor Condemned with particular vigor were the new German sterilization law and nazi antiSemitism Gods authority alone the letter said can make one person the ad ministrator over others Aberdeen
