Foreign Minister Eduardo Hay handed Owen St. C. O'Malley, the British minister, a check for $85,000 and. in a note informing him of the president’s action, said: "May I be allowed, however, to call your excellency's attention to the fact that not even powerful states with ample resources at their disposal can boast of having fulfilled their monetary obligations?” There seemed no doubt that Hay ta,rant to remind Britain that it owed more than $4 000,000.000 * B) | to the United States on its war debt.

BERLIN. May 14.—(UP)—Baron Gottfried von Cramm, Germany's greatest tennis player, was sentenced to one year in prison today on immorality charges at a trial in which a story of "Jewish blackmail” and a blighted honeymoon was announced by the court. According to the verdict as read, von Cramm was blackmailed for between $8,000 and $12,000 for the act for which he was .sentenced. The verdict said that von Cramm's "service to German sport was in his favor when it came to consideration of his sentence,” but on the other hand "he damaged the reputation of German sport.” The verdict pointed out that von Cramm “suffered economic loss by blackmail by Manfred Herbst of between 20,000 and 30,000 marks." There was no proof that he had committed punishable acts, thp coort said, until he met Herbst, "who is a Galician Jew.” With regard to the honeymoon, i Judson Dike, paroled from San Quentin prison where he was serving a sentence for embezzlement, was reunited in Lodi, Calif, with his wife.

The tone of the British messages was regarded as deliberately insulting. There was a surge of anti-British feeling, which had been brewing as part of the oil controversy. Senators demanded that the government boycott Britain and refuse to sell her oil.

Taylor countians Commissioners Table Proposal On Plumbers Ordinance Dies For Second On Final Reading An ordinance proposed for the I purpose of requiring all journeymen plumbers to work at the direction of a master plumber w’as tabled by the city commission yesterday after Commissioner Lucian Webb's motion that it be passed on final reading died for want of a second. The plumbing issue had been before the commission for a month. in the form of an ordinance passed four weeks ago on first reading. It would have required a journeyman plumber to work under the direction of a master plumber; otherwise the city would grant no permit for the work nor give approval after the Job was finished. Raymond Choate, representing master plumbers, asked yesterday for a vote. He said plumbers did not favor an amendment proposed last week that men employed by the month as upkeep men be exempted. "That would cover all types of plumbing.” he declared. MAV or POSE LICENSES "If this does not pass.” said Choate, "master plumbers are going to ask to be relieved of the requirements for bond and licenses now set up by a city ordinance.” Under the plumbing ordinance now in effect, a man must pay $20 examination fee if he wishes to become a journeyman plumber. If 1 he passes the plumbing board, he is granted a license as a journeyman. A master or contracting plumber goes before the same board, paying a $3 examination fee Then a license fee is required. $15 as a mas- , ter plumber and $15 as a gas    armV    communique said to plumber, with bond also required, .day the vital Lunghai railway—ob-j The master plumber bond costs $10 for $1,000 as a plumber, and a xinv-' th r Imcunt ii a gas plumber, tie | total being $50 for a master plumb* I er who also does gas work. Mayor Hair has opposed the ordinance, on the contention that it would give the ll master plumbers in Abilene a monopoly on the plumbing business. Then it was pointed out. that under the ordinance, anv journeyman I plumber could by passing the mas-j te; examination, paying his license fees and securing a surety bond become a master plumber. That's the wrong way to go at i this thirds" said Mayor Hair "We believe ail plumbers should be put on the sam* basis." said ! Webb In moving that the ordinance i be passed on second and final read-1 mg "We have had a demonstration this week. A rock addition had been built to a house here, with 'JEWISH BLACKMAIL' REVEALED— NAZI TENNIS ACE SENTENCED IN MORALS CASE BARON von CRAMM the rourt said: "Von Cramm at the age of 19 became engaged and was married soon afterwards. The marriage was not happy. On the honeymoon the bride was unfaithful and ran about with a French sportsman.” Von Cramm was divorced last year, the court recalled. The judge said von Cramm confessed to police after hts arrest that he engaged in the activities for which he was sentenced until early in 1936, but told the court during the trial—which was in complete secrecy—that the confession was incorrect. The court said the act for which von Cramm was sentenced was not punishable under German law until 1935, when a tighter law governing acts of immorality was parsed after the "purge” of 1934 in which Ernst Ro*hm was killed. The judge mentioned Roehm several times.

Voile troops reaching I the line immediately blew up a | bridge. Traffic over the railway, running east and west through the heart of Central China's rich agricultural area, had been blocked shortly before by aerial bombardment, disrupting transportation of war supplies to China's huge army defending the region. In reaching the railway the Japanese achieved a goal for which they have been battling five months Japanese army spokesmen declared 400.000 Chinese troops were trapped in the Suchow area, with no choice other than to surrender or face annihilation. Suchow was violently bombed, with IOO civilians killed. While athe Japanese were furiously pressing their advantage in Central China, warships landed troops near the South China port ’ of Foochow—evidently for an attack on the Canton-Hankow rail- I way. Japanese planes swarmed over- j head, protecting the ground troops j ar; they planted the Rising Sun flag on the Lunghai railway. At least 200 planes were reported supporting the operations, bombing and machine gunning Chinese defenses and dumping huge quantities of explosives on Suchow. junction point of the Lunghai and Tientsin-Pukow railways.

ARMED PEACE GOAL His hearers, massed in Victory Square where he spoke from the thrusting gray prow of a model warship, thought that he referred to the United States when he said: "The aims of our program ar# clear. We want peace, with everyone. Nazi Germany also wants peace. But this peace must be an armed peace. "We must be prepaid to defend this peace, especially when speeches such as those across the ocean are delivered. If the democracies want to make doctrinal war then totalitarian states will close themselves into one bloc.” It was recalled that Secretary of State Cordell Hull in a statement at Washington Thursday said that the United States would continue its policy of non-recognition of Italy) conquest of Ethiopia. Likewise in Washington last week: Secretary of War Harry S. Wood-ring. in a speech directed at the dictatorship nations, said “a wave of indignation” might sweep over the democracies if they were pressed too far "that would make it extremely difficult to keep the peace.” The crowd's cheers turned to catcalls and boos as Mussolini made iii# reference to overseas speeches. SPEAKS WITH CANDOR Mussolini spoke with even more than his usual candor, the despair of more cautious diplomats He said he would remain faithful to his new' friendship wuth Germany and that h»* wanted to make his treaty with Great Britain everlasting. 'Talks with France are progressing." he continued. "I do not know whether they will be successful because they want a Barcelona I Spanish loyalist) victory and we want a Franco (Spanish nationalist) victory.” To this—the first hint from any quarter in Italy or France that .    agreement with France on a treaty ™ i «    i    .    .    of friendship was not absolutely Diplomatic quarters heard fha* certain—Mussolini added the fol- Briton Report Of Attack Sent To London Unarmed Subject Is Bayonetted At Zone Boundary SHAN .GHAI.

British consular authorities, admitting candidly that they regarden the incident the most serious of ! the entire Japanese-Chinese war, urged the British Residents’ association to postpone a mass meeting to consider direct action to protect Britons in Shanghai against Japanese attack. There was open talk of a break lowing regarding Germany's annexation of Austria: "Italy replied: ‘No!* To projected diplomatic steps against Germany. This greatly disappointed antifascists.
