April 7.— i UP'—Former President Herbert Hoover said today that the direction of the New Deal is the "same as every state in Europe that has lost Its democracy.” “The danger in the New Deal is in the direction of It," he said. * Europe's democracies were lost as the result of economic misery. And the actions antecedent to that are a mixture of government interferences, socialism, fascism and various tendencies that demoralize a free economic system.” Hoover made his statement at a press conference at the Palace hotel shortly after he arrived in San Francisco en route to his home, Palo Alto, from his recent trip to Europe.

Already purtsh-dmnk from a sudden drop in temperatures Wednesday night, young crops and much fruit were due to receive a knockout blow during , the night. But the question of whether the freakish cold snap would freeze wheat remained a matter of conjecture, with experienced farmers taking both sides of the argument. Meanwhile snow piled to formidable depths on highways and traffic was disrupted to the north of Abilene. All motor traffic on highway 30 from Haskell north was halted Thursday afternoon by state highway department officials, after drifting snow on the highway, in some places four and five feet deep, had stranded about IOO cars and trucks in the 18-mile stretch between Haskell and Welnert.
