EDITION VOL XLI riVE CENTS A COPT ASSOCIATED PRESS LEASED WlllB aKKVlCB MASON CITY IOWA MONDAY NOVEMBER 26 1934 THIS PAPEH CONSISTS OK TWO SECTIONS 8EUT1OH ONE NO 39 NRA Veiled in Secrecy No Other New Deal Agencys Future So Uncertain By HERBERT PLUMMER ASHINGTON Nov 26 agency of the new deal is cloaked in more secrecy or its future more un certain at pres ent than the once all impor tant NRA The national industrial recov ery act creating NRA will expire next June 16 un less renewed by congress but no one seems to 3 s know what the 11 future holds for the Blue Eagle Members of NIRB which succeed ed Gen Hugh Johnson as admin istrator have been at work for something like two months suppos edly engaged in the job of salvaging but no one knows what has been done They meet daily in secret have conferred with the president several times but that is all the public ifest knows of their operations The fa iSlsl SImous fish bowl of the John son era at NRA has disappeared completely Stuying Blue Eagle This official silence on the part of the administrators has given rise to all sorts of rumors as to what the future has in store for NRA One day rumor will have it that NIRB is allset to scrap NRA An I other day the report gets around jj that all the pricefixing and produc IjiUtioncontrol provisions of the codes Ijjlare to be discarded Again it is heard that plans are being laid to in industrial production fjwith the government guaranteeing loss The most plausible explanation of what actually is happening behind the scenes at NBA is that members loyery board some intense studying of NRA and the Blue Eagle The growth of the two has been enormous so much so fn fact that result some say is a hodgepodge of contradictions and problems Codes were thrown together tily and without careful study of their effect NIRB is now going about the task of attempting to re store order and is saying nothing until the job is completed They Want It to Stay There are few however who be lieve that NRA is to be scrapped entirely They areconvinced enough good has been found in NRA to in sure its continuance in some form after June 16 1935 when the act expires Several thingg appear to make this certain For one thing labor will demand of the next congress that Section 7A of the recovery act be made per manent or retained in some slightly modified form And labor is con fident it has the necessarynumber of votes Then too industry itself in sev eral important instances has no de sire to return to the old order The administration wants NRA to stay because it provides the machin ery for keeping in contact with in dustry If the time comes when it thinks it necessary for the govern ment to assume a tighter grip on in dustry to speed up recovery NRA might provide the means FORECAST IOWA

for America The agriculture secretary whom new dealers hail as one of their top notch thinkers and philosophers pinned his hopes in part on the work of fanners in production control as sociations These are local groups that take a hand in adjusting loca problems as part of AAAs gigantic attempt to restore agriculture In the long view of Wallace told the Associated Press things that are happening now on the farms of the country may be the beginning of a new ep och in which democracy embracing the economic as well as the politi cal field becomes for the first time a Sees Strong Possibility As far as agricultural adjustmen is concerned the secretary added I think there is a strong possi bility that the local groups will one day take over all the work of agri culturaladjustment except those national decisions which can be bes made by aceritral organization coi relating the needs and productivity of all Illustrating the point he reiter ated a statement from his book New which said A modern democracy in my opinion is essentially a graded hier archy of New England town meet ings with responsible democratical ly selected people dealing with the hard facts at every step Methods Point Way Again and again the methods employed by county control associ ations inthe AAA seem to me to point the The secretary hopes that the peo ple will respond to this movement He acknowledged that the control associations which make necessary adjustments with individual farm had made sands of A few of these were deliberate with intent to de fraud he said hut most of them honestly developed the concept of justice for the parts in terms of the The men and women in these groups and the people with whom they dealt dropped the mean grasping local attitude and

ILLS Eastman Rail CoOrdinator Says Should Rule AH Transportation ST LOUIS Nov 26 B Eastman federal coordinator of transportation today told members of the Mississippi Valley association that interstate commerce commis sion control of all transportation facilities would cure the shipping ills of the nation Speaking at the sixteenth annual convention of the association the coordinator said the country needs the btst system of transportation that can be provided and one which will utilize every means of transport to the best advantage each in its proper place and with a maximum of cooperation and a minimum of uneconomic duplication and waste One Great Trouble One great trouble as I see he said is that while transporta tion is a very live subject and there is plenty of talk about it the talk is mostly by partisans Each form of carriage has its own particular watch dogs and to make the meiee still hotter there is another lineup of the watch dogs of the investor of labor of shippers and of com munities The only interest which has lack ed a watch dog has been the gener al public interest I am trying to occupy a small part of that vacancy and living in hope that I shall not be chewed up in the Backbone of System Pointing to the railroads as the backbone of our transportation the coordinator told the waterways advocates the health of the railroads is essential to sound transportation health Serious and widespread impairment of their se curities therefore has far reaching and demoralizing consequences quite apart from any transportation effect The thesis I am going to under take to defend here is federal reg ulation of all important forms of transportation including water car riers and their porttoport rales REFUSES TO GIVE UP 2 SUSPECTS IN KING SLAYING

Ante Pavelich alleged terrorist wader and bis supposed assistant Egon Kvaternik Both have been under arrest in Italy since shortly after the murder of Alexander and Louis Barthou the late foreign min ister of France Three Line Communique A curt three line communique is sued this afternoon announced that the court of appeals had decided the extradition must not be con ceded to This was the second blow Italy has delivered to Yugoslavia in two days Saturday she demanded flat ly that the league of cations council immediately hear Yugoslavias grave charges that the Marseille as gary and an Italian government spokesman said Italy and Hungary will be joined by Austria in present ing a united front at Geneva when Yugoslavias charge is heard Demands Extradition France acting on the urgent sug gestion of Yugoslavia demanded the extradition of Pavelich on lie ground that several alleged accom plices arrested in France named him as their leader He was the ac knowledged head of the Ustachi A Crotian organization aimed at lib erating Croatia from Yugoslavia control That Frances demand would be met with a negative reply was a foregone conclusion since France had denied 42 Italian requests for the extradition of political exiles in recent years However diplomatic sources said that the Italian deci sion coming at this delicate mo ment would further complicate the situation and embitter the Italo Yugoslav relations still more Demand Benes Withdraw GENEVA Nov 26 today demanded that Dr Eduard Benes foreign minister of Czecho slovakia withdraw as president of the league of nations council when that body considers the dispute be tween Yugoslavia and Hungary over the assassination of the late King Alexander In its communication today Hun gary pointed out that Czechoslovak ia is a member of the little entente with Yugoslavia and Rumania and that since the charges are of ex ceptional gravity neighborly rela tions are thereby endangered The Hungarian communications said that since the rules of the league will continue as president during the next session of the council the situation will be embarrassing unless he resigns be cause he is not only the foreign minister of Czechoslovakia but is also a member of the permanent council of the little entente which has as a whole supported the Yugo slav charges Fun to Be Broke The story of Alexander Ec tor Orr Munsell that
