The gun used by Weinberg, it was reported at the time of the shooting, had been taken from the labor representatives described as a political patronage device and as "fundamentally unsound." Lieutenants of Gov. John W. Bricker held their own in another sector, however, as the senate tax- ation committee recommended the S5.000.000 temporary poor relief bill for passage in substantially the same form that it passed the house. The senate w-as expected to vote on it today. The committee not only retained the clause requiring the cities and counties to match state grants, dol- lar for dollar, but specified that they should finance January relief entirely with their present funds. The state funds may be spent for relief only from the time- the bill becomes effective until June 30.

New Frontier Of America President Tells Senators He Aims To Preserve Peace BERLIN The Berliner Nachtausgabe splashed the head- line "America's Frontier on Rhine" across its front page to night and described President Roosevelt's meeting with the sen- ate military affairs committee yes- terday as "without example since the days of the World war." In a two-column dispatch under a New York dateline Nachtausgabe quoted American newspapers as saying Roosevelt had told commit- tee members that the United States must back up democracies in any war against the totalitarian states with arms deliveries. "Unbelievable agitation of Roose- velt alter the fuehrer's peace ad- dress" was a subhead on the dis- patch. Another said, "Washington stirs up the people to make business." "This action of the dispatch said, "is without example since the days of the World war. It leaves no doubt that Roosevelt, is a second Wilson who is deliber- ately walking in the footsteps of his Democratic predecessor in of- fice. "As a result of these conversa- tions it is clear that the United States finally has broken with its neutrality policy. "The intervention policy of Washington in European matters has become a fact.
