In the opinion of some of the nation s most prominent industrial leaders who claim knowledge of current plans in Washington, important parts of the new policy now taking shape, are expected to be presented to the new congress. In place of the policy of “sweet reason,” as one industrial leader expressed it, the United States will hereafter “talk a language the dictators understand,” backing up diplomatic and trade policies with armament designed to overawe any possible combination of totalitarian nations. They summarized the gigantic scope of the program described at dwarfing by comparison the dreams of the totalitarian nations—as follows: I.—An army, navy and air force which "could stand off the world.” 2—Loans to other American countries for allied defense systems. 3.—An international diplomatic drive to put starch into the democracies” to block further totalitarian encroachments. 4.—Immediate diplomatic and economic raproachement with all nations in the western hemisphere to forestall further political and trade penetration by aggressive European and Asiatic nations. 5.—A swift drive to end unemployment, labor strife, and economic troubles within the United States to eliminate the chief argument of totalitarian nations regarding democracy s failure.” 6.—Peace between business and government—without loss of existing gains of liberal social legislation. 7.—a heavy industry stimulation program correlated with necessary re armament spending in an effort to bring prosperity. Despite these aggressive protective tactics, however, no departure from the traditional ideals of American democracy is . contemplated, they said. No compromise with the good neigh-bor” policy is in prospect and the United Etates will gladly resume its leadership in disarmament programs and stimulation of equitable international commerce whenever other powerful nations of the world ' see the light,” according to this view. No better evidence exists of this determination to hold fast to democratic international idealism, some said, than the fact that the Anglo American trade agreement, begun in a vastly different international atmosphere, was carried through to com pletion in a period of unparalleled international pessimism. However, recent developments not only in Europe and Asia, but nearer home in several Latin-American countries were described as having convinced the president and his close advisers that certain nations have already laid the groundwork for aggressive political, military and economic penetration detrimental to the future political and economic existence of the United States. This nation's danger in the next decade came to light, they explained, during those tense moments in Washington two months ago when, the European warfare seemingly only a few hours away, the war department experts realixing the United States was hopelessly unprepared to defend itself summoned leading industrialists, some of whom discussed the problems involved with the president. While the full scope of the rearmament program, they said, may not become known for months, it now appears that early estimates of its size, measured in dollars, although large—a round figure of $5,000,000,000 was several times previously mentioned—is likely to be revised upward, rather than down. ward. Business leaders interviewed expressed belief that the national defense program, superimposed on a business pick-up already begun, and a “huge” residential building boom -in tho way, would tend to reduce unemployment and WPA payrolls to a marked degree.GERMAN LEADERS GIVE RATH A MARTYR'S FUNERAL WITH FORMAL ASSIGNMENT TODAY— Ballinger Pastor M’Murry Head Chancellor Adolf Hitler (arrow-upper right) headed the Natl statesmen who gave Emit Aom Rath, slain German diplomat, a martyr’s funeral at Duexseld'rf.

PROPHETS BANNED Protestant churches in some parts of the country were ordered to eliminate the German word “Jehova.'’ taken from the Hebrew for God. and old testament names of Jewish prophets. Wealthy Jews in Nurnberg, according to advices received in Munich, were forced to sign over 90 per cent of their possessions to the German labor front and then told to leave the city within three months. A mass eviction of Jews was reported in Vienna. In Berlin thousands clamored in vain for permission to leave while officials debated ways and means of letting them go. Lay teachers of religion in public schools asked that pastors and priests assume such instruction. They explained no German teacher could interest nordic pupils in See GEHM ANY, Tg. 6, Col. 6 MINERAL WELLS.

Jones and his crew of diggers kept on searching today for $80,000 worth of gold pieces which may or may not be buried in East mountain. Jones started his excavation in an effort to find the treasure buried by Sam Bass, the Denton train robber. 50 years ago. That Bass had a treasure has never been questioned. He and his gang took $80-VK) from a Texas and Pacific express car at Cedar Brakes. $60,000 from the Union Pacific railroad at Big Spring, Neb., and $20,000 from the bank at Bradford. Legend has it that the Texas and Pacific loot was buried on East mountain, but no one knows, as Bass was shot down by Texas rangers at Round Rock, 20 miles north of Austin, without telling.

In Process Reported By Scientist— FATHERHOOD AFTER DEATH POSSIBLE BV 'LIGHTNING FREEZE' Every boy and girl will want to follow the thrilling adventure Bohbv has with Santa Claus and Peggy in Tolland' Th* Story Starts TUESDAY MORNING. NOV 21 Watch for III PHILADELPHIA, Nov. 19 -(JP—Primitive forms of life have been slowed down so that one minute equals ten thousand years In their rate of living by a method reported to the American Philosophical society today. The method makes possible a test of scientific ideas that human male seed may be preserved indefinitely. A man now -Iring might, long after death, become a father through artificial fertilization. This means has been suggested for giving the talents of geniuses to posterity. The new, slow tempo of life was developed in the laboratory of the California Institute of Technology by Dr. Alexander Goetz. He told today how it Is done. and. in an interview afterward kdmitted the posterity experiment may be possible. In the laboratory he plunged various kinds of bacteria and yeast cells into liquid hydrogen, which has a temperature around 400 degrees fahrenheit below zero. The tiny bits of living matter froze at the equivalent of a drop of 1,000 degrees per second. When thawed out rapidly no matter how long they had been frown, most of them were still alive. Dr. Goetz said ultimate death for such frozen forms of life is probable, but for practical purposes they can be said never to die. He calls their state "latent life.'* The lightning freeze is limited to forms which are not more than aoout one thousandth of an inch in diameter. The male seed is one form with this extremely small size. ;
