Peiping Ultimatum to Nanking Sent CHINCHOW Manchuria Feb 22 main force of a Japanese army which plans to wrest Jehol from Chinese rule in the next few weeks was preparing today to strike next at Chaoyang second largest city of the province After a rapid but uneventful ad vance 30 miles across the border this force was consolidating at Peipiao terminus of a branch of the PeipingMukden railroad from this point It occupied Peipiao late yesterday without encountering opposition A further movement in the drive aiming ultimately at the capture of Jehol city the metropolis and capi tal of the province was expected to meet with resistance of Chinese de fending forces The Japanese mili tary command announced the ad vance would not be resumed imme diately Ultimatum Delivered Meanwhile a 24 hour ultimatum was being delivered today to the Chinese nationalist government at Nanking issued by the Japanese sponsored state of Manchukuo This gives the Chinese until a late hour tomorrow to decide not to re sist the Japanese Its acceptance was hardly expected and when the time limit expires it was believed the drive would resume in earnest The Japanese force at Peipiao is only 20 miles northeast of Chao yang Military leaders were confi to benia tured by thei end of the 52 weeks as plannedby the committee It is expected however that some of the scrip issued will mature con siderably in advance of the year end maturity period probably in a month or two by the simple pro cess of having gone through 52 transactions and getting 32 stamps If that is the case additional scrip may be issued providing the com munity shows no Indication of sat uration Wagner Presides Chief speakers at the meeting were Col Hanford MacNider who originally suggested the scrip plan and Lester Milligan secretary of the Chamber of Commerce who were introduced by E H Wagner former president of the chamber and general chairman of the scrip committee The plan as we announce it must be regarded as tentative as it may be changed before finally adopted Mr Milligan said There is little actual experience in this type of money which originated in Germany particularly in a little mining town where business was actually revived by it The Hawarden plan which has attracted much attention consisted only of a issue half of which was collected by souvenir hunters It also has been tried in Albia

nerve to say Everyman every industry in the U S was hit by depression Before you start dealing out public funds to help you should have first found out have we enough money to give aid to ev eryone every Industry If not I am not going to give part of them a sandwich and leave the rest go hungry But no they didnt do that They just started right in by helping the bankers so every man woman and child in the U S thinks and right fully so that they have got as much right to get some sort of government aid as the bankers Due to the lack of foresight of our lawmakers the bankers the railroads and big business got the first IT S dole and it will never be finished till the last one hundred and twenty million reach in and get theirs because they feel they got It coming No wonder Glass was too

relief to every taxpayer in Iowa After reading letters which he said he had received from taxpay ers demanding tax reduction Sen ator Stevens said it was a ques tion of who we are here to serve and I believe It is the taxpayers Senator Claude Stanley spon sored an amendment which would have made the reduction apply to the total taxes instead of to the millage levy This was vigorously opposed by
