Roosevelt Composes Dispute of Ickes and Moffett By HERBERT PLUMMER ASHINGTON Dec 7 President Roose velts success in composing the differences be tween Secretary Ickes and James JV Moffet on the federal housing program is being set down as one of the most striking feats yet performed by him The gravity of the dispute be tween the two was weil iscog nized among ob servers here Not a few on the in side thought for a while that one or the other might have to go The fact that Both Mr Ickes and Mr Moffett remain at their posts presumably in good spirits is being spoken of as a tribute to the execu tive ability of Mr Roosevelt A president of lesser force or less abls to command the devotion of those who serve under him might not have been able to have accomplished what he did Both of the disputants are indi vidualists accustomed to command Its not like either one of them to give in once they have tUeir minds made up their friends say Sticks to His Aides Thus far Mr Roosevelt hasnt parted company with any of his major aides no matter how much they have quarreled among them selves or witb others in the admin istration Professor Raymond Moley clashed his superior Secretary Hull ajid left the state department Moley however is still close to the house and is one of the pres idents most trusted advisers General Hugh Johnson had all sorts of rows with his colleagues both in and out of NRA while he administrator His departure owever was due to other kan these squabbles Secretary Hull and George N jeek clearly are at odds on the question of tariff policies but the president is keeping both of them on the job When Peek previously clashed with officials of the AAA Mr Roosevelt was so eager to keep him in the administration that he invented the exportimport bank job for him

quit for this reason Professor Sprague and James P Warburg were permitted to leave their positions in the treasury be cause they were out of step with the thite house Dean Acheson was asked to resign for the same rea son It makes little difference to the president apparently how much his aides squabble among themselves Just iso long as they avert an open break or do not direct their shafts at him

Reply By JOSEPH E SHARKKY liyrlRhl 1SI34 by rrcfift GENEVA Dec flat threat of war against any nation which seeks to violate the alliance of Yugoslavia Czechoslovakia and Ru mania was made to the world today by the foreign minister of Czecho slovakia The warning was issued by Dr Eduard Bcnes the personality re garded as most responsible for the organization of that little entente He told the council of the league of nations gathered in an exciting session in an effort to settle a quarrel between Hungary and Yugoslavia that if anyone strikes a blow at the unity of the little entente war will result by Russia He said that soviet Russia was joined with the little entente in a securities pact which defined an aggressor nation as a country which supported armed bands or which protected such armed bands Previously the council has heard Yugoslav charges that armed bands of assassins plotting against the life of the late King Alexander of Yugoslavia had been protected in Hungary while they plotted against the monarchs life They also heard a Hungarian re buttal that a plot against King Alexander was announced in Amer ica and that hte assassination was the result of internal conflict in

also asserted that if the assassination of King Alexander at Marseille had occurred before the World war or before the existence of the league of nations war be tween Yugoslavia and Hungary would have been a dolorous andhor rible reality If in the future he declared anybody strikes at the unity Yugoslavia Czechoslovakia and Rumania catastrophe will surely come Replies to Accusations Tiber Eckhardts
