process conference regarding the relief mes sage expected by Thursday Byrns said of reported plans to limit the relief extension to seven months I didnt hesitate to say to the president that that would be the wise thing to do there is no way of telling what the revenues or amount of employment will be making it hard to plan too far in Representatives of railroad man agement and labor renewed efforts to negotiate an agreement on meth ods of protecting employes displaced by rail coordination projects BORDER PATROL IS SET UP HERE Minnesota Trucks Entering State Must All Carry Iowa License Mason City became the center of operations Monday morning for a state border patrol extending from the Mississippi to the Missouri river to force Minnesota truckers doing business in this state to carry an Iowa license This move was undertaken in or der to put Minnesota truckers doing business in Iowa on the same basis as Iowa truckers that operate into Minnesota where Minnesota licenses are required Harry assist ant state chief of the state highway stationed in Mason City in charge of the state border assign ment stated Orders From Wallace Orders for the border patrol were issued by Lew Wallace chief of the state motor vehicle department and Chief John Hattery of the state highway patrol Mr Nestle met with 18 state patrolmen at the of fice of Sheriff J M Robertson Monday morning At 9 oclock these patrolmen left to assume their po sitions at strategic points on high ways operating between the two states We have been ordered to stop all trucks operating either direction check them for safety appliances such as lights brakes reflectors clearance lights as well as on over loads and the chauffeurs said the assistant chief Those carrying Minnesota plates with exception of farmers hauling their own produce or trucks travel ing through the state or trucks not actually doing business in Iowa are obliged to register their trucks in Iowa Stop Iowa Trucks The reason for this ruling was the fact that Minnesota authorities have been picking up Iowa trucks found to be operating in Minnesota and requiring them to carry the li censes of that state We however are not confining our duties to the one assignment We are also checking automobiles when we are able as to mechanical condition and the standpoint of safety Each driver is required to prodiice his drivers With Mason City as the head quarters Mr Nestle has established a subheadquarters at Decorah L L Meyer resident patrolman in charge and one at Spirit Lake with H F Fischer resident patrolman there in charge Others in North Iowa Men also are stationed at Wav erly Cresco Northwood Forest City Algona Emmetsburg Rock Rapids and Sibley as well as Ma son City Deputy sheriffs over the nortlrern tiers of counties are as sisting in the project it was point ed out Four additional patrolmen are to be brought in later We have given considerable publicity to this the past week so truckers knew what was coming and that we are not trying to sneak up on Mr Nestle stated These men are going to be on duty day and night at least for the remainder of this week The patrolmen have been given orders that all leaves during the week are canceled and that they are to remain at their posts until midnight next Saturday night Not License War This is not a license war or any thing of that nature It is merely giving Minnesota truckers the same treatment that Iowa truckers get in Minnesota Heretofore Iowa has recognized Minnesota plates as proper for operation in Iowa The patrolmen have been told not to file criminal charges but to hold the trucks until the licenses are procured We are not confiscat ing trucks If truckers are hauling perishable goods we will help them reach their destination as rapidly as possible WILL NOT TAKE UP PEACE OFFER AT CONFERENCE League Council Agrees to Demand for Equality at Meeting By JOSEPH E SHAKKEY Copyrijjlit 1936 by The Associated LONDON league of na tions council ill secret session agreed Monday to Reichsmuehrer Hitlers demands for equality but flatly rejected his condition that the council must discuss his peace proposals Hitler had offered to send a rep resentative to the councils deliber ation on Germans remilitarization of the Rhineland only on a basis of full equality in the conference and with the understanding that his re cent offers of new peace pacts would be considered Six nations headed by France op posed Hitlers insistence on bring ing his peace proposals up simultan ously with the discussion of tha Rhineland reoccupation Side With France The other nations with France were Turkey Spain Russia Poland and Rumania The council then voted unani mously to accept Hitlers first con dition and to reject the second The vote was interpreted as tan tamount to a qualified refusal of Hitlers conditions The council was agreed that Ger many was entitled to sit in the council on an equal footing with the other Locarno is without the right to vote The council ruled however that the Reichsfuehrers proopsals were a matter not for the council but for the signatories of the pact Not Entitled to Vote It was slated that owing to their status as interested parties in the Locarno pact and Belgium as well as Germany would not be entitled to vote in the league coun cil meeting This decision disposes of the diffi culty by which if Germany attended the council on an equal footing with other members of the league she could block an otherwise unanimous decision by voting against it herself The French delegates said they regarded the verdict of the secret session as a decisive victory for France Predict Condemnation A French spokesman predicted that the league now would condemn Germany since Great Britain and Italy have given France their as surances that for them the Locarno pact still He added that the French then could go home with what would amount to a triple alliance of Great Britain Italy and France Other said the French spokesman may then discuss Hit lers proposals but France never will We are not sure that Germany will not attack us some day and in view of recent events we shall not talk with her until we get the guar antees we require of her good Begin Drafting Message League officials immediately af ter the secret session began draft ing a message advising the German government of the decision which was made subject to ratification in public sessions It was said that the wording of the message would not slam the door completely shut in Germanys face although it would not contain any new invitation to Germany to attend the council sessions In British quarters the councils decision was interpreted as a com promise between the British and French of two hitherto irreconcil able viewpoints It was said that the British now were willing to vote for the condem nation of Germany as a Locarno treaty violator but that should the French return home Great Britain would be free to starther own rec ognitions with Germany regarding Hitlers peace proposals Clarification Sought Earlier in the day members of the councilsought to clarify Hitlers reply to the invitation to send a representative to the council Clari fication it was said centered in just what was meant by the word alsbald contained uTthe telegram Joseph A C Avenol secretary genera of the league received from Hitler Sunday night The word at first was taken to mean immediately therefore that Hitler demanded the negotia tion of his peace proposals simul taneously with the discussion of his denunciation of the Locarno pact Translation Is Corrected The German embassy in London explained it had communicated with Berlin and was informed the word should be interpreted in due time ;
