WAR FEARS VOICED Parliament gave him one of the biggest ovations of his career at the end of his speech making clear he was risking his political future on conferences with the dictators In an attempt to halt Europe's drift to- ward "the cataract" of war. A surprising number .of other members expressed., the fear war was Inevitable unless the vital Brit- ish talks with Italy and Germany succeed. A gloomy picture of Brit- ain's alrforce in relation to Ger- many's was drawn by Winston Churchill, war-time cabinet mem- ber, who said the Reich was spend- ing more than double Britain's huge sums. He warned against turning Britain's back on her ally, Prance, or on the League of Nations. Opposition members assayed berlaln's foreign policy, which they termed a flouting of Ideals of the league in favor of a return to the old-time "balance of power" politics which prevailed before the World war.

Jackson PRICE 5 CENTS PftOF WHO SATIREO AMERICA'S HANDLING OF MONOPOLIES IS FO'S CHOICE FOR JOB OF EN FORCING. ANTI-TRUST LAWS WASHINGTON, March few months ago Prof. Thur- man w. Arnold of Yale pub- lished a best seller poking Intel- lectual fun at America's handling of (rusts and monop- olies. Today President Roosevelt nominated him for the Job ot en- forcing the anti-trust laws. Arnold regards those statutes as a "ceremony of atonement" by which the country has been able to denounce Its monopolies and have them too. His book, "The Folklore of published by Yale university press, contended that the laws have actually encouraged mo- nopoly, because Ineffectual en- forcement, providing an outlet for public Indignation, has taken the place of actual government control. In many ways his views are similar to those of his predeces- sor as assistant attorney general in charge of the anti-trust divi- sion; Robert H.1 Jackson, now solicitor general. His chapters of the antl-tnist laws are adorned with footnotes liberally quoting Jackson's speeches. The small group of senators who opposed Jackson's confirm- ation was obviously smarting to- day under the 62 to 4 vote by Khlch the nomination was ap- proved last week, and-would have nothing to say as to plans for opposing Arnold's confirma- tion His book, R barbed discussion of certain "Ideas about social or- finds the origin of anti-trust laws In the popular psychology of the 80's. By popular concept, he writes, bigness was "curse" that In- terfered with the law of supply and .demand. Therefore, it was considered bad. But bigness also offered ways in which goods could be produced in large quan- tities at low prices. As a result, he wrote, "It be- came necessary to develop a pro- cedure which constantly attack- ed bigness on rational, legal and economic grounds, and at the same time never really Inter- fered with combinations." 200 OF CREW SAVED- Farm Meeting Series Begun Others To Be Held For Discussion Of Form Bill, Quotas Farmers of the Abilene viclnlt1 convened at the city hall auditorium last night in Ihe first of corn munlty meetings for discussion o the new farm bill and the cotton .marketing quotas to be voted on Saturday.
