"It was not my intention to insist j this British move. Diplomats expressed belief that with Drummond leaving Rome at this time, when his presence here is so much required, owing to Italo-British relations, his visit to Vienna must be of unusual im- portance.

A controversy on relief appro- oriations for next year was brewing between those who want to cut government expenditures to the nesses who placed Hauptmann in the vicinity of the Lindbergh home near Hopewell a few days before the baby was kidnapped March 1, 1932.

(Continued on Page Ten) 'Time ClockT In a Washington birthday speech in which he accepted an honorary degree of doctor of jurisprudence from Temple university, Mr. Roose- velt said the father of his country "deeply appreciated the importance of education in a republic and the responsibility of the government to promote it." The chief executive asserted he was "proud to be the head of a gov- ernment that has sought to make a substantial contribution to the cause of education, even in a period of economic distress." He noted that these efforts included appropria- tions of more than to local communities for col- leges and library buildings, as well as projects for adult education and other purposes. Other Qualities Besides freedom of thought, he 1 listed two other "qualities of a true education One, he said, is a "sense of fair play among realiza- tion of their "essential dependence on one another." The other is a "sense of equality among men when they are dealing with things of the mind." "Inequality may linger in the world of material he said, "but great music, great literature and the wonders of sience are and should be open to all." Although referring to George Washington, Mr. Roosevelt said he would "break a century-old pre- cedent" and refrain from quoting from the first president, lest "some captious critic might search the li- brary of Congress to prove by other quotations that George Washington was in favor of just the opposite."

Italian re- ports arose today that Emperor Haile Selassie was suing for peace, just as Fascists said their black- shirt legions were menacing their next major Ethiopian objective Amba Alaji. Informed sources reported the Ethiopian king of kings was advanc- ing peace proposals directly to the League of Nations, with an offer un- derstood to contemplate a league protectorate over his empire. Whether he would cede any ter- ritory, however, or yield the broad sections of Ethiopia already occu- pied by the advancing Italian forces, was not specified. Fascists, fortified by their recent victories, insisted, nevertheless, that they looked with little favor on Haile Selassie's purported plans to save his empire from conquest by mandating it to Geneva an order for emasculstTon were pronounced today on Adolf See- feld, an itinerant watchmaker known as "Uncle who was convicted of slaying 12 boys over a period of wo years McCoy Continues to Improve LOWELL.

The fresh disorders, carrying on the demonstrations in which 27 per- sons have died since the leftists de- feated the former government cen- ter-rightist coalition in last Sunday's parliamentary election, centered in southern Seville province. There, rioters raided churches in the towns of Saucejo and Fuentes, burning images and furniture, while demonstrators in the own of Pena- flor stormed another church, de- stroying unages and pews.

Dr. Angell contended that if teachers' oaths have any result at all they "render teachers timid about mentioning current political issues which properly should engage their best thought." _He said he considered teachers an "essentially loyal and patriotic group" and that one of the principal objections to the oath laws was the "outrageous initial imi! cation" that teachers are not loyal "Compel all persons to take such an oath if you will, but do not insist on the teacher while you spare the radio speaker, the news- paper editor, the maker and pur- veyor of the movie and the movie news reel, all of them far more pterful agents for insidious propa- ganda than the unfortunate Dr. Angell said.

With President Roosevelt out ot the city today speaking at Temple university in Philadelphia, and Congress meeting briefly to listen to Washington's farewell address, there was a short moratorium on contro- versy here. But a fight threatens next week on the soil conservation-farm sub- sidy bill which the House passed ycsteiday, 267 to 97, in somewhat different form than a measure the approved errlier. Senator Smith (D., S. C.) was up in arms over a House amendment to include share-croppers and tenant farmers in the subsidies that will be paid for taking land out of com- mercial production. The supreme court decision of Monday, upholding the govern- ment's right to generate and dispose of power from Wilson dam in Ala- bama, continued to have repercus- sions. The Chamber of Commerce of the United States saw an "in- creasing threat" of government competition with business.

It pre- sumably would be along TVA lines. Farley Assails Opponents In Mid-West Drive ers Believed Solved With Snow Conditions Ideal WASHINGTON, Feb. 22 Postmaster Gen. Farley stormed the Middle West today, praising the New Deal and its spending to the echo of Republican charges that there has been a "saturnalia of extrava- gance." On his way to the very camp of Gov. Alf M. Landon of Kansas, widely considered a potential con- tender for the presidency, the Demo- cratic national chairman mounted two Missouri platforms to declare that President Roosevelt "has res- cued and to assail his op- ponents. In a speech prepared for delivery today before the Young Democrats at Jefferson City today, Farley de- clared "the youth of the nation, came to the front when the forces of defeat, of inaction and sel- fishness were battling against us" in the campaign four years ago. "We have travelled upward a great way since March 4, he said. "Our adversaries cannot deny the facts. They cannot escape the logic of the black entries that have wiped out thp red entries of the Hoover period." on Four) LOS ANGELES, Feb 22 Police insisted "time clock murders" of a middle-aged rooming house proprietor and his wife were solved j today, despite their prisoner's repu- diation of a confession attributed to him.

He admitted, Capt. Wallis said, that he contrived the arson clock. The bodies of Barbour, 66, and his wife, Dorothea, 61, were found in a flame-scorched bedroom of their rooming house Thursday morning. They had been beaten to death.
