FULL LEASED WIRES FIVE CENTS A COPV wiMJ THE NEWSPAPER THAT MAKES ALL NORTH IOWANS NEIGHBORS MASON CITY IOWA WEDNESDAY OCTOBER 4 1939 MASON CITY THE BRIGHT SPOT THIS PAPER CONSISTS OP TWO SECTIONS SECTION ONE NO 308 YANKEES NIP REDS IN OPENER 21 Arms Ban Puts U 5 in War CLASHES WITH CONNALLYOVER CASH CARRY Texas Senator Fears U S to Lose Ships If Law Is Not Changed WASHINGTON Senator Vandenberg R Mich told the senate Wednesday that admini stration efforts to repeal the arms embargo were directed at reach ing into the existing area of for eign war to aid one belligerent against another Vandenberg read a speech op posingr revision of the neutrality law after Senator Connally D Tex had predicted that Germany would begin sinking American merchant vessels un less the administration bill was adopted The measure would substitute a title and carry system ot sales of munitions and all other sup plies for the present arms em bargo It would prohibit American ships from carrying any goods to warring nations Vandenberg said he thought that repeal of the embargo would be a deliberately unneutral act which may too easily be the fore runner of others when once the habit starts Consciously or but mostly consciously he said Sff we sat asked from IBT onrHeritraJItypolicy In of one belligerent whom our personal sympathies largely fa vor and against another bel ligerent whom our personal fceiings largely condemn In my opinion his is the road that may lead us to war and I will not voluntarily like it Vandenberg declared it was a treacherous doctrine that we can do a lot things short of war to help our though we might successfully be half in this war and yet stay safely out Connallys appeal for adoption of the administration bill opened the second day of senate debate on neutrality law revision The debate was suspended Tuesday be cause of the death of Senator Logan D Ky Siding with the administration on this issue although he was op posed it on various domestic ques tions Connally pointed out that the law which imposed the arms embargo left United States mer chantmen free to carry other goods to belligerents He cited a long list American vessels attacked or sunk by Ger man craft before this countrys entrance into the World war and declared They were attacked or sunk notbecause they carried arms or munitions or implements of war but because they carried general commerce and on the theory lhat the destruction of such commerce aid Germany and injure the allies What Germany did in he World war she will flo in this war Unrestricted submarine warfare on all neutral commerce has already begun Germany did not hesitate to sink our ships before we entered the World war and ivere at peaxic She will not hcsiiate to do so now Thus Connally said the present embargo act does not guarantee the United States against war but its continuance as law in volves a constant threat of our being plunged into war through the sinking of American ships and American cargoes The administration title and carry bill would make it wholly improbable that any American vessel or cargo would be sunk he continued because it provides that all goods purchased by belligerent nations must be transported in foreign ships and that the purchas ers must take title to the ship ments before they leave American shores Touching on the contention of repeal opponents that lifting of the embargo would benefit Brit ain and France because their sea power would prevent Germany from buying in this country Con nally said the United States vas not undertaking to impair ad vantages which Germany enjoyed by reason of her location It has no right he added to deny or to curtail natural advantages which Britain and France might enjoy By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Verbal ammunition was most in
