Without or with or foei, i I .ketch your world exactly -a. it 1 ENGLAND PUT "ON THE SPOT" The government of South Africa -has de- cided to pay the full balance of its war indebtedness to Great Britain, amounting to approximately South Af- rica had already made partial payments 6n the debt, but the decision to pay up in full probably came as something of a sur- prise to London. As a matter of fact the announced de- cision of South Africa to pay in full no cloubt brings mingled feelings to the British government, not the least of which will be a feeling of embarrassment. England has proved herself a bad debtor by defaulting on her debt to the United States. -She is showing herself a very able collector, how- ever, by being able to collect in full her loan made to the government of South Africa. j In short, the government of Great Britain is going to have to do a lot of reconciling in order to save her own face. Will she accept the -payment of this loan, or will she reject it? To reject the payment of which is honestly owed to her would look Hike the ultimate in folly. The loan was made in good faith, and the debtor is pay- ing it back in good faith, without question -and without ckircss. On the other hand Great Britain has with the other bad credit risks of iEurope in repudiating her debt to the States, which was also a debt en- tered into in good faith, and which she is as much morally obligated to pay as ,-South Africa was to pay her. England has committed herself to the of a general suspension '.of inter- payments. If she accepts this pay- Tncnt from South Africa she will definitely '..show that the stand which she has taken is ,u sham and a hypocrisy, unless she herself ahead with payments to America. If CEngland really as a matter of .principle, that no more inter-allied debts, contracted during the World War, should be paid, then she cannot accept this pay- ment under any condition. Then, here is another feature of the mat- ter. England, casting about as did the other European debtors for some plausible' excuse to avoid payment of her honest debt to the United States, dug out the excuse of poverty. She was not able to pay the debt, some of her governments officials said. Very well, then, let her at least turn over to the United States the from South Africa, if she accepts the payment. At least she will be unable to say that, she cannot "afford" to do this. Of course our honest opinion about the matter, and the honest opinion of perhaps 99 per cent of the American people, has been that the European debtors purely and simply wish to beat the United States out of the billions of the war loan, so unwisely extended by this country. This means that they wish to beat the American taxpayers out of this amount, for in the e'nd the loan must be paid by the American taxpayers. It is the old "skin old as the principles of money as a means of ex- change and credit as a method of doing business. But England at least will be put on the spot by this blunt offer of South Africa to pay her in honesty that is astound- ing in this age of defaulting nations. Eng- land must now do one of two things: She must liand back in good cold cash which rightfully belongs to her, or must openly confess to the world that her policy in regard to the debts is a policy of sham, hypocrisy and deceit. Which will she do? iltonian organization. (It was wirelessed from ocean to ocean-and from the Canadian border to the Gulf of Mexico and the assumption, is that some niightly opulent Republican paid the radio folk's bill, for McFad- den has no money to speak of..) Anyway, -this same Louis T. McFadden is the identical McFadden who, when President Hoover proclaimed his war debt moratorium in 1931, declared, on the floor of the house of rep- resentatives that the Californian had "sold us out" to Europe; who subsequently made repeated attempts Nto have articles of impeachment voted against tlie then White House tenant; who there- upon virtually was read out of his party; whose committee posts were taken away from him by his fellow Republicans in the lower congressional chamber; whose selections for federal appoint- ments in his home'1 district were turned down with ostentatious regularity; who was ostracized by Republicans, and referred to as crazy; who was fought by the Republican national machine when hs came up for re-election in 1932. Oh, my! How the G. 0. P. management at .that particular juncture did hate Louis T. McFadden. At that, it was only a culmination of its hatred of him. McFadden, a representative of two decades of service, had gradually been working himself up, by seniority rise after seniority rise, to the chair- manship of the powerful banking and currency committee. Finally he gravitated into it. Im- mediately he took the warpath -.against all the' financial abuses of which we have been hearing so much under the present administration. Chair- man Fletcher of the senate committee on bank- ing and currency, Ferdinand Pecora and a few others have, won most of the credit for the actual exposure, but McFadden already had "provided them with the bulk of their ammunition. In the meantime, however, the infuriated fin- anciers had been doing their level best to wreck McFadden, They succeeded along business lines. That is to say, "They cleaned as he once told me, describing his commercial status. But there was one thing they couldn't do they, couldn't beat him for re-election. Through thick and thin his congressional district supported him, though his conservative opposition even threw its weight in favor of the ultra-radical Mrs. Gif- ford Pinchot in its 1932 effort to defeat him.

La Guar- has decided to try to put a stop to it. The riding of police rough shod into groups of strike pickets in many parts of the country, coupled with unwarranted and illegal arrests and imprisonment are seen as leading to violence and actual revolt, rather than to peace and legal .methods. In the history of revolutions is interwoven the brutality of police as the climax. When workers learn they are only with force, then revolt is born. In Russia, a charge of mounted police into groups of protesting workers was the spark that i started the revolution. Within a few moments, I'the police themselves joined the workers. They were brothers. Human nature is made up of such queer components that the paradox is nor- mality. BRUTALITY IN NEW YORK j Police brutality in New York is succinctly de- scribed by the newspapers. (In Germany, in Austria, in Italy, in Russia, p.apors do not dare to print stories of police brutality.) -Says the New York American: "With Chief Inspectator Valentine in attend- ance, Mayor La Gaardia at City Hall yesterday informed Salvatore Ninfo, head of the knit goods 'workers strike, that he will not tolerate police brutality in their dealings with pickets. "The mayor added that he considered the beat- ing of pickets at 250 Moore street, Brooklyn, un- warranted. Ordering Inspector Valentine to file specific charges against individual officers, one of whom was alleged to have used abusive lan- guage in addressing three girl strikers, the may- or said: 'L fail to find justification for the attacks by police. 1 am basing these remarks ..on a re- port made by police officers who investigated the complaints of strikers. There was no viola- tion of law. If police go out of their -way to enter into combat with peaceful pickets they are entirely overstepping their police duties'." Let the New York Daily News describe the hearing scene: Most of the pickets, some of whom were so badly hurt, they had to be carried into the .room, were and fined or given the -alter- native of a day in jail, merely because they were pickets. And the magistrate who threw them into jail (because they hadn't the So) announced he would continue throwx pickets into jail The News describes the scene at the "mill: "Five hundred of them they said, were peacefully patrolling in front of the plant when police radio and patrol cars swooped down. Without warning, they said, the police swarmed, out of the cai-s, flailing with their blackjacks and striking down men and women alike."

The report, prepared by Donald R. Richberg, executive secretary of the executive'council, said: "The1 Tennessee Valley Au- thority, while engaged in the con- struction of public works, is mak- ing a contribution to the relief- of industrial unemployment, not only through employment of but also through its gen- eral-, -.program- for ment of living ditions .throughout lhe--Tennejpe valley."

(ff) The Japanese government charged to- day that 'the third internationale is responsible for fomenting from Moscow intrigues against Japan involving train wrecks in Man- chukuo on the Chinese Eastern Railway. This was the latest blast in the j conflict of propaganda Japan I and Manchukuo are waging with awaitt signs of the other's weak- 1 ening in deadlocked negotiations i for Japan's purchase of the rail- road from Russia. i A foreign "office spokesman said 30 Soviet employes of the i-railroad arrested in Manchukuo "will' be tried in' two sets on charges of train wreckings' and intrigues against i Japan, at the behest of the third Internationale: Some ot confessions showed involvment of the Third Internationale according to offic- ial information reaching he' asserted.

It was not known whether this was due to fears of drastic action by 'Jap- an and Manchukuo, or if Mbs- cow intends to change its rep- resentatives' in the hope of bet- tering the situation.

The Saar territory, soon to participate ihe momentous plebiscite, had the' word of Chancellor Hitler today that "the whole German nation is behind you." More than half a million per- sons jammed together here yes- terday for a great of loyalty to the Saar and to give Hitler a tremendous oVation. It is inevitable, Hitler said, that the Reich region would vote Jan- uary 13 to return to Germany in preference to remaining under the mandate of the League of Na- tions or becoming part of- Prance. He said this should improve the Franco-German relations. "The Saar is the greatest prob- lem now separating France from. he asserted.
