WORKS ENGINEER BrainTrttst Makes Plans HullMoley Affair Is New Indication of Roosevelt Idea By HERBERT PLDMMER WASHINGTON Aug 10 However unpleasant the HullMoley affair may have been to the white house President Roosevelt and his close advisers may be strength ened in the belief credited to them at the very start of the new ad ministration that the function of the brain trust should be one of planning and not of admin istra tlon Time and again since he has RAYMOND MOUY been in the white house Mr Roosevelt has demon strated that belief It has been the professors who have done much of the planning for the new deal but it has been the hard boiled and practical men who have been called in and clothed with the executive authority for getting action Moleys New Job Prof Raymond Moleys venture into the executive field at London produced results not entirely happy in the relations between the brain truster1 and his superior Secretary Cordell Hull But Moleys new job of surveying methods of combating crime lies definitely in the planning field It is not as a superpoliceman that he takes up his new duties He does not profess to be anything of that sort of an aid to law police departments of devising new ordinances looking to more ef fective control of crime It will be his job to find a way for more co operation between the federal and state governments to prevent and control crime Interesting F D R It was in this particular field that he first attracted President Roose velts attention Moley had conduct ed a survey of crime In the city of Cleveland that was generally cre dited with bringing about a decided improvement in conditions there The New York crime commission heard of him and sought his ser vices Roosevelt was then governor of New York That the presidents idea was to keep his brain trust strictly In the planning field is evidenced by the fact that of the dozens of profes sors at work for the administra tion none has been entrusted with the job of carrying out the plans they have devised Of course Dr Morgan of Antioch college in Ohio was placefi at the head of the Tennessee valley project but Morgans reputation as an exe cutive was taken into account For Example Some have pointed to the state department for an example of the weight given executive ability When Cordell was decided upon as secretary of state some of the pres idents advisers were reported a bit skeptical as to his ability as an ex ecutive Hull had been in congress long and had become known as a deep student of economics The president therefore placed William Phillips a close friend and a career diplomat in the depart ment as Hulls executive assistant It is Phillips rather than the sec retary of state who looks after the actual job of running the routine of the department Continue Effort to Force AUNT MET By Robert Quillen There aint nothin rests me like a cup o tea unless its takin my teeth out after a party RIFTS INCREASE WITHIN PARTIES IN CUBAN CRISIS Group of Presidents Supporters Considers Ouster Plan HAVANA Aug 10 question whether President Machado shall resign his post to bring peace to Cuba now under a formally de clared state of war as the result of the menace of revolution was placed today before the national executive committee of General Machados liberal party The executive committee met to consider the formula of peace pre sented by United States Ambassa dor Sumner Welles acting as med iator In the conflict between the Machado supporters and the oppo sition This formula entails the with drawal of Machado to make way for a president approved by all parties Party Differences Differences within the parties over the mediation program wid ened as the liberal conference got under wayand it appeared possible that the old party linos would be completely obliterated Meanwhile the general strike which brought the over Machado to a head continued un broken despite the effortand ex pectations ofthe government Santiago the

Solution MIAMI Fla Aug 10 eral Mario G Menocal former president of Cuba and a leader of the opposition to the government of President Gerardo Machado to day declared Cuban affairs are rapidly nearing

nature of the news he had received from Havana but was in an obviously joyful mood HOPES FOR QUICK ACTION IN CUBA Roosevelt Does Not Want to Intervene to Stamp Out Warfare HYDE PARK N Y Aug 10 UP Roosevelt looked today for quick action In Cuba in response to his strong appeal to the island republic to stop political warfare and restore economic order The president carefully withheld open intervention in the interest of bringing about peace and happier times by the policy of mediation In plain words to Senor Oscar Cintas official ambassador of res ident Gerardo Machado Mr Roose velt sent word to Cuba that The problems of starvation and of de pression are of such immediate im portance that every political prob lem should be met in the most pa triotic spirit in order to improve conditions at the earliest possible moment Mr Roosevelt gave this final op portunity to the president of Cuba and his government to restore con ditions while the governments of foreign nations were protesting to the United States about injury to their nationals and damage to their property in Cuba It is known unofficially here that Great Britain and Spain made these protests Mr Roosevelt how ever does not regard armed force as the way to do things He Is seek ing a new order by peaceful meth ods Will Rogers SANTA MONICA Cal Aug look out democratic administration you are about to revert to the old republican type You are telling some Latin Am erican country who shall be president and who cant Now there Is no doubt that Cuba is run cockeyed But what coun try aint Now we get our sugar
