OVER TALBOT’S STATE BEER REGULATION RELIEF MEASURE HITLER EMULATES MUSSOLINI AND STALIN Two Measures in legislature Said to He Not Pleasing: to Pinchot Wants Licenses Issued bt State Department, Not by Commissions HARRISBURG, March 23—fINS) —Like the unbridled waters of a swollen river, legalized beer and wine will flow' through Pennsylvania on April 7 unless, and until, control legislation is enacted. The Congressional bill which modified the Volsted Act had a similar effect upon the state’s dry law. permitting unrestricted operations within the commonwealth. The authority behind these assertions is Attorney General William A. Schnader. Unless some regulation is enacted between now and April 7, 3 2 beer and wine can be sold in Pennsylvania.” Schnader stated. "These beverages can be manufactured and sold. as well as imported from other states.” 'The legislation now contemplated, of course, is not designed to prevent manufacture and sale of good beer, but merely to regulate the flow. The Legislature, even under harmonious conditions, has barely enough time to get a control bill to the Governors desk, and even then there is no assurance he will sign the one that reaches him. A stiff fight over the enactment of regulations loomed today. Attorney General Schnader attached little importance to the pos- j sibility that existing acts may be in- , voked to provide the state with a temporary control. "I have given no opinion on any existing law and there are a number of things more important than beer at. thus time.” he replied. The plunge of Gov. Gifford Pinchot to the stage for legislation controlling the manufacture and sale of beer , brought a variety of predictions today. While the governor and his aides scrutinized the first Sowers bill, the spopsor, Rep Clinton A. Sowers, ! joined his Philadelphia colleague. Patrick Conner, in the presentation of a second, or substitute measure. Although Governor Pinchot denied any “knowledge of such a plan.” Continued on Page Thirteen SCHOOL PRINCIPALS TO HOLI) MEETING Speeds $2,000,000 Appropriation for April and May Allotments Had Second Reading: Today; Biennium Amount for Jobless Considered HARRISBURG Pa..

It was reported unofficially that J an attempt would be made in the conference to include in the farm measure the President's proposal for farm mortgage and small home mortgage relief. Mr; Roosevelt earlier, had indi-: rated that plans calling for the eas-; ing of the mortgage burden through ; a reduction of interest rates and the I extension of time would be taken care of separately in a message and a bill.

BREAKS ARM AT PI XV Edward Em rn iso. 16, of 1921 West Eiont siree’, sustained a fractured arm yesterday afternoon while playing in the vicinity of Third and Flower streets He was taken to the Chester Hospital, where the fracture i wa* reduced.    4 Little concern was displayed by bartenders and proprietor' of “speaks" in this cav yesterday when it was learned that President Roosevelt had signed the beer bill. Some of the few old bartenders who formerly had membership in the Bartenders’ Union were elated at the praspect of the return of legal beer, while others feared the competition of pretty barmaids in beer gardens, restaurants and road-houses. The few proprietors who were up and around in the afternoon merely shrugged their shoulders when told the beer bill had been signed “Beer? What of it?” was tho usual response. None appeared to believe the return to a legal status of beer would affect their business. Certainly there was little business to affect, they admitted, but added that many of the younger generation, in acquiring a taste for synthetic liquor and gin during the great drought would not switch to beer. Just because it was legal. Not a few' bartenders and others who have been engaged in some sort of racket allied with speakeasies during prohibition, are planning to open beer gardens, but most of them are "up a tree ’ as to how the venture might pan out.

He announced in ringing tones that Manlius Van Der Luebbe. Dutch Communist, and his accomplices in the burning of the Reichstag last month, would be executed publicly in order to bring an end to charges that the blaze was set by Nazis themselves as an excuse to suppress the Communist and Socialist parties in Germany. In recognition of the fart that world attention has been focussed upon the treatment of Jewish citizens in Germany, Chancellor Hit let-lost no time in reiterating that the Nazi creed demands subjugation of semitic interests to the Interests of the nation at large. “The government.” he said, “recognized that both Christian churches are most important to the founda- ('on I inned on Rage Thirteen ALLEGED LAXITY AGAINST BANKERS WASHINGTON, March 23 (INS) A preliminary investigation into the failure of the Department of Ju tier under former Attorney General William D.
