SAN FRANCISCO, Aug 20 President Roosevelt is po- litically weaker today than at am time-since his election, and if the present political trend continues the new deal will unquestionably go down to defeat next year. Paul Block, thu; summarised his findings on a re. cent sxtended tour of Westerr states in- an address over the na- tion-wide network of the National Broadcasting company, entitled The Political Trend as I Find It last night.. Block spoke from San, Francisco. A year ago, Block said, workers were still hopeful new deal experi- ments might succeed, and farmers seemed satisfied, although business-- men were distrustful, and skeptical of administration policies. Today, the publisher reported, "not only is business stronger than ever against the new deal, but work- ta in both industry and agricul- ture, who were previously either sat- isfir.d or 'on the are definite- ly turning against iU" He said: 'My Investigations of the political trend have convinced me that the people are beginning to recognize the president's broken promises; his assault, on the constitution and Ms intimation he would pack the United States Supreme court NOT AMERICAN. "I am also convinced our citizens have awakened to the fact that the new deal administration is not an American administration, not a Democratic administration, but a group of men who perhaps inno- cently, but at least, ignorantly, arc trying to create one national state, a regimentation not only of Business and agriculture, but of the people themselves." The president, Block said, has either followed or led "in the poli- cies suggested to him by a coterie of "experienced, professors and young awyers, a radical instead of adhering to the Oemocratic plat- form of 1932. Further, the publisher stated, when he lunched with President Soosevclt the day after the Supremo court's NRA decision, "his (the iresidcnt's) statements outlining his, slans were most disturbing and if :nown would shock every staunch American."

The testimony was elicited in senate lobby investigation persistent interrogation by Senator Schwellenbach (Democrat, Wash- Hopson acknowledged that during half the time covered, the utility system under him was not payinf dividends on its stock. The earn- ings were made by private com- panies owned by him and his fam- ily which sold services to companies in the system. TENSION AT HEARINr, It was.the first time he had ac- knowledged his profits publicly HE had characterized them as inaccur- ate before the house rules commit- Tension pervaded (he hearing. At the outset the committee warned the witness it would "no longer per- mit him" to evade questions or make speeches, and unless he com- plied an additional contempt cita- tion would lie presented in the sen ate. One already impends against him there, as well as against. William A Hill, of his counsel. The latter was close by his side today, as were other advisors. Across the way sat Chesley W. Jurney, senate sergeant-at-arms, who makes contempt arrests. Senator Schwellenbach began ask- ing about the organization of the Associated system and control. The utility operator replied brief- ly and to the point. TWO CONTROL SYSTEM. Hopson agreed that he and J. I Mange maintained control of the system until the company passed dividends on its stock, but they now hold less than 10 per cent of the voting stock, because additional stock is eligible to vote as long as dividends are not being paid. Candidates for positions nomin- ated by him and Mange have been elected just the same, however, it was shown. Schwellenbach pointed out there were virtually no stockholders at :he last meeting. Hopson agreed here were only two, one of whom said he only came because he lived n Ithaca, where the meeting was held. The other, a large stockholder named Martin, seconded the motion ipproving tin management. After the hearing recessed until .mpiTow, Schwellenbach told news- men the evidence so far disclosed profits of from 1926 to 1933 to Hopson and J, I. Mange. He said more would be discovered later. Hopson contended throughout, ipwcvcr. that the great bulk of the wofits were only "paper profits" and that he never actually realized on them. Schwellenbach said many others also failed to cash in on then- profits when they had them.

Only a few persons were present when the big ship took off from the same flying field from which Post started many aerial ad- ventures including the one which ended in death for him.and Rogers his boon companion. The flight was expected to lake about seven and hours with refueling stops at Albuquerque N. M., and probably Amarillo.
