GOOD MORNING Uf' To Congress The. "Nein" Voters CCC Magazine Award for Safety BMIM By JACK HUTLEDGE YESTERDAY PRESIDENT Roosevlt urged to rec- ognize that a crisis exists in the railroad industry, and suggested they do something about it. Apparently discouraged at the reception given other recent proposals he has made to legis- lators, he avoided concrete rec- ommendations Monday, making but two suggestions: First, that federal subsidies not be granted to meet fi- and second, to enable railroads nancial obligations; that the United States avoid the pitfalls of government ship. A crisis undoubtedly exists and mere recommendations for action will not solve the ciisis. The president has placed the matter squarely up to congress Possibly that is the best way to handle the railroad problem at present. Congress is in an ag- gressive mood, and no matter what proposals Roosevelt may have made, it would have auto- matically attacked them. His recommendations may have been sound, but congress would have possibly killed them, just to prove once again it is no "rubber stamp" Congress has recently dis- couraged executive leadership. Let's see what is can do under its own steam now. The nation is watching. THE AUSTRIAN VOTE Sun- day proved (or did that the Hillerized nation taken by un- precedented bloodless invasion is 99.75 percent pure. The vote was not surprising to the world. It was expected. In fact, we would not be surprised to learn some day that the outcome was pre- arranged. We also wonder if .25 percent of the nations voters who said "nein" in the plebiscite will be put behind bars or killed. Or, to be punny, will the nein voters be behind the eight ball? WITH FATAL ACCIDENTS reported daily and the national highway toll mounting seriouslv, it is refreshing to hear ol safe drivers getting awards and rec- ognition for handling their cars for months, even years, without denting a fender. Such recognition has been given Leonard Hadlock, who handles the so-called "Merchants' Route" in Reno for the Railway Express Company. Hadlock has driven this route for three years without an accident, and the company is giving him the covoted safe-driv- ing merit card. The system of awarding safe drivers was started by President L. O. Head of the company, and has worked successfully. Leon- ard Hadlock is one of over the United States who will be complimented publicly for his work. THE CAMP IDLEWILD C.C.C. camp boasts its own magazine, edited, printed and distributed by capable Robert A. Carrier. The magazine is surprisingly good. It is printed on a mime- graph machine, and is profusely illustrated. Carrier is cantoonist, too. The boy editor has been with the local camp since December, prior to that he was in Oregon for eight months. Carrier is aided by a staff of other C.C.C. workers, and we wager the boys are having a good time.

The British government's note Monday to Joseph Avcnol, secre- tary general of the League, sought to open the way for releasing League states from their pledges to withhold formal recognition of the new Italian empire. Pact Near Signature London's action indicated that negotiations in Rome on an Anglo- Italian pact of ing British recognition of Italian Ethiopia for an Italian pledge of "hands off at the point of conclusion. Formal announcement of the pact may be made Saturday in Rome and London. The British note opened the way for one of the stormiest ses- sions in League history and diplo- matic observers predicted that the delicate situation arising from the note might make or break the League. Action Protested China and Soviet Russia, both concerned with Japan and both members of the council, probably will make a strong stand against the British move, believing that it might come to serve as a pre- cedent for similar recognition on Manchukuo. Strike Spreads French Idle; Cabinet Formed PARIS, April rap- idly-spreading strike wave para- lyzing the nation's armament program made-more than workers idle Monday night as Premier Edouard Daladier's new "Salvation" government took of- fice. Nearly 40 large metallurgical plants, including key industries holding contracts for France's speed-up of airplane construction, were occupied by sit-down strik- ers. Since the fall of Premier Leon Blum's popular front government last Friday and the rise of Dala- dier's virtual one-party cabinet the number of strikes has nearly tripled.
