Ask Roosevelt To Call World Peace Parley Nebraska And Illinois Solons Issue Proposal rrcM (An PRICE FIVE CENTS Jubilee Parade Launches Fair Monday Noon WASHINGTON. Oct. I. —UP'*— Two democratic senators—Burke of Nebraska and Lewis of Illinois— proposed simultaneously tonight that President Roosevelt summon international conferences to effect a lasting European peace. Burke, a critic of some administration measures, Just returned from a European tour, said the president was the logical man to call a badly needed world economic conference. Lewis, an administration supporter, declared the time had come when Mr. Roosevelt should summon all parties to the Treaty of Versailles to meet in this country and survey what that treaty had produced “in discontent, revolt and war.” •Then” added Lewis in a formal atatement to the press, "a Just disposition of the colonies can be made in a calm atmosphere in the United States, under one direction—as we do not look for resentments and seek no rewards. We only seek a world peace." FDR TO HYDE FARK Both proposals were advanced a ■hort time before President Roosevelts scheduled departure for Hyde Park. N. Y., a departure which indicated he was confident that the recent threat of war In Europe was definitely past. In an interview. Senator Burke said he thought the time was ripe for an economic readjustment which would remove trade barriers and. with them, many of the causes of war. "I think Europe's troubles are basicly economic.” he said. “The president is the logical one to take the leadership in calling an economic conference. The president is in an ideal position lo ta<e the lead because he can do it without involving us in Europe's squabbles ” Praising the reciprocal trade treaties fostered by Secretary of State Hull, Burke said some such treaties might well be the basis of agreements among all the larger nations of the world. In a sense, this is the golden jubilee year of the effort to establish a first class regional exposition in Abilene. There were earlier community exhibits than that of 1888, of course, but it was fifty years ago when Abilene business men set forth to develop a regional show that would represent not only the commercial, industrial and agricultural life of Abilene and Taylor county, but the huge region lying round about. That first effort was a distinct success, as many of its successors have been. -AN EDITORIAL- The 1038 West Texas Free Fair is a continuation of that effort. When the gates are opened tomorrow for a six-day run, the people of this community and .section will have an opportunity to enjoy themselves and contribute their share toward the success of the fair by attending it. Many men and women have worked hard for many weeks getting the fair in shape. They have labored unselfishly and efficiently, and their only reward will he the knowledge that they were doing something to build up their city and their section. The average citizen has not been asked to contribute either time or money to this effort. All that is expected of him is that he show his civic loyalty by attending the fair one or more days. It is little enough to ask, and no doubt it will be given ungrudgingly; for the average Ahilenian recognizes tile fair as a strong factor in the development of his city and its surrounding territory. (Jet ready to attend the Free Fa r and show your loyalty and appreciation. You’ll be well repaid for your effort, ami you will come away from the fair with a better appreciation and understanding of Abilene end its immediate territory.
