last night thru the white house It urged the elimination of political considerations in the selection and appointment of district attorneys The great powers of the district attorney under the continual exten sions of federal jurisdiction in the present century the report said are giving increasing political im portance to the office Treatment of it as a reward for political ac tivity is a serious menace to en forcement of law Has Had Effect The report declared the claim of the senate not merely to exercise a collective power of rejecting unfit nominations but to dictate appoint ments as the patronage of senators of the state in which the district lies has often had a bad effect upon the personnel and conduct of the office In states where the senators are in opposition to the administration the commission said it happens too often that political organizations insist on treating the office as po litical patronage and1 thus deprive the president of the information and support he should have in order to make suitable appointments The commission said that federal state and local prosecutors were more responsible for the increase of crime than the failure of juries to convict Crowded dockets it said resulted in prosecuting attorneys dismissing charges thru the power Tnm to rase 2 Column I AUNT HET By Robert Quillen Jim thinks its love that makes him not want his

expenditure of many millions in the erection of nearly 2000 build ings in Vatican City and other dis tricts was said to have ceased on orders from Pope Pius Construction already underway win be complet ed but possibly in abbreviated form This move was considered signi ficent inasmuch as the building of new religious edifices is known to be close to the pontiffs heart He recently discussed his program with Cardinal Mundelein of Chicago teil ing him that building was one of the best remedies for unemployment in the Catholic world On the other Hand the Vatican has announced that the

of a site for the million dollar hospital to be built in Iowa next year by the United States Veterans Bureau may be decided by Major Gen Frank T Hines director of veterans affairs after a visit to Iowa Such a probability was indicated Saturday forenoon by the general in a conference with newspapermen at his office in the department of interior building at Washington D C There was an inference in his an nouncement that he had talked at least informally with Col John J Phelan the bureaus site inspector who last month visited j 42 Iowa communities and is preparing a formal report on the 142 sites of fered for consideration It Sounds KeaHonable In Florida Mississippi Kansas and other states the recommenda tion of the inspector has been ac cepted but because of an admittec complexity of

will be made by the high chief of all veterans af fairs Referring to the Iowa situation General Hinesspoke as follows to Radford Mobley the GlobeGazettes Washington staff correspondent Because of the several months controversy concerning selection of the site in Iowa I have consented to make an Inspection tour and choose its location Iowa Stands Apart Commenting on the interview Mr Mobley in his report to the GlobeGazette writes General Hines pointed out that Iowa enjoys a peculiar position New and unusual factors are in volved in determining the best lo cation Hundreds of points in the state
