Previously they had drafted main outlines of plans to link their army, navy and airforce resources against any threat of invasion to either.

The National Progressive Party of America, dedicated to those Ideals, was offered to the nationa last night by Philip F. LaFollette. governor of Wisconsin, who widened beyond repair a breach with President Roosevelt, junked political theories of other parties and set a new course In this direction: "Definitely and irrevocably we are In the lists to stay until the American people recapture their heritage.” This heritage was defined as the right of every American "to earn his living by the sweat of his brow" Security "founded on a definite, decent annual income for all,” and freedom of conscience and control.” To attain these ends, La Follette declared for public, and not private, control gnd ownership of money and credit, "without qualification j or reservation," a staunch defense of the "basic concepts of American government, and, in particular, that grants of power should always be safeguarded against abuse.” Flatly the governor opposed "every form of coddling, or spoonfeeding the American people,” declaring that "whatever it may cost —so help us God—we shall use the power of these United States to restore to every American the opportunity to help himself.” After that, said La Follette, "he can sink or swim,” Tile governor begins welding the ; new party Into effective organization at Des Mcines, la., today, where he is scheduled to make a radio broadcast.

"The relief offered to roads by Increase of freight rates and the program of the government for assistance is adequate to meet their problems." 25-Word Riddle Is Ford's Speech Haskell, Jones Developments Grip Oil Men Pardue to Acidize Today; Chittenden Test Makes Head Interest in Abilene circles hit a new pitch today as developments were reported on the discovery wells of taw Jones and Haskell county pools.
