NORTH IOWANS NEIGHBORS VOL XLV AND UNITED PRESS FULL LEASED WIBES FIVE CENTS A COPY MASON CITY THE tftlQHT SPOT MASON CITY IOWA FRIDAY MAY 19 1939 NEWS THIS PAPER CONSISTS OP TWO SECTIONS SECTION OMB NO 190 URGES CONVINCING NAZI PLEDGE F D E Had Answers to Idle Money Men WASHINGTON Mr Roose velt had the answers in his pocket when he wrote those questions to tile monopoly committee ask ing what to do about idle money and men Dont be misled by the mild and pas sive query into believing the old sailor is lost at sea on this subject and is looking for navigating service His men at the economic helm have been PI IF working on the Paul MalloD plobiem f o r months and energetically for the past few weeks At least one of them Assistant State Secretary A A Berle has worked out an answer which will shake the world or certainly the banking world until its teeth play chopsticks Authoritative quarters have already heard Berles formu la is astonishing if not revo lutionary It is supposed to be based primarily on the idea of creating a new capital credit banking system which would furnish money for new enter prise and might crowd the exist ing capital finance system into ihe background if not off the map Monopoly committeemen have lieard that Berle the presidents primary economic adviser for the past year and the ablest one the white house ever had is to pre sent the program to them formal ly in a statement To Address Retailers Big promotion is attending Mr Roosevelts announced intention of talking straight to business at the retailers national forum next week It sounds like the president himself v and pessinisn ih JjStefc forum lair but that Isnot the caseT never been held before It is a sort a conven tion of the National Retailers as sociation an organization formed by Mr Roosevelts good friend Louis J Kirstein Boston in 1035 The association is a super organization the older better known retailers organizations like the grocers jewelers etc and the president himself counseled Kir stein in its formation after the NRA broke down from a blow by the supreme court Mr Roose velt is called the big brother of the movement by those within This may explain in an offi cial way at least why Mr Roose velt turned down an invitation the U S Chamber Commerce about March 25 because of the pressure of the European situa tion and then accepted the R N F invitation presented to him 10 days later Prepare SEC Data A case against flybynight in surance companies like those of Henry Van Porter the Kingfish says they pay off only in case you are hit by a train while in a row boat is being worked up extra quietly in the securities exchange commission by SECers in charge of the general insuranceinvest ment inquiry It is aimed at some of the small est health insurance and trial insurance companies hav ing policies in which the big print on the first page gives the policy holder practically everything and the small print on the second page takes it away The data will be slipped into the SEC report to the monopoly com mittee Mr Roosevelt dropped the naval dirigible like the last half dozen of them fell straight down A lot more things than were announced made it too hot o at least comfortably For one scorch ing thing Senator Tobey the New Hampshire republican was threatening a scandalous fuss over what he claimed to be favoritism by a naval officer toward one bid ding company For another sen ators were contending the likely builder was 25 Germanowned although this had been denied Considering that the navy ad mirals did not like the idea much and a large section of congress op posed the appropriation in the first place all concerned were glad to drop it at the first sign that the president too had come to doubt its desirability Girl 10 Rescues Twins 2

Prime Minister States Concessions Must Not Lead to More Demands LONDON Minister Chamberlain offered Friday to lay down a definite long range policy for European peace Germany would renounce in a convincing way the intention of aggression or the further use oE force in her relations with other countries Speaking in foreign affairs de bate in jhe house of commons Chamberlain said however that Britain was not prepared to buy peace with concessions which would only lead to further de mands He was replying to David Lloyd George war time minister who had demanded speedy conclusion of an alliance with Soviet Russia and Clement R Attlec leader of the labor opposition who had urged a clear and firm foreign policy Charges Lack or Faith Chamberlain declared that the German government itself was responsible for a lack of faith iii its assertion of nonaggressive in tentions and added If we could have such a re nunciation of aggressive aims it we could have the conviction that there was no intention of aggres sion or the further use of force in the relations between Germany and other countries then I think we would find we would not be backward in stating what is our view of he lines on xvhich we would discuss the terms oE a per manent peace Jlaisky Delivers Note Just before the house began its debate willi emphasis on the gov ernments failure thus far to con clude a pact with Russia that countrys ambassador Ivan Mais ky delivered a note to the foreign office It was understood that this ex pressed again the soviet position in favor a BritishFrenehRus sian accord involving definite military commitments and talks among the general staffs of the three power Chamberlain told commons thai the idea that we despise the as sistance of the Soviet Union is without foundation Peace Front Main Goal We are concerned with build ng up a peace front and it we can get the cooperation of the Soviet Union in building up that front we want it he added The prime minister described the pledges Britain and France gave Poland Rumania and Greece aid them in resisting any at tack endangering their indepen first aid treatment given to avoid any further deter ioration in the situation Seek Additional Support It still remains to strengthen them by more permanent ar rangements and to try to get ad ditional support for them from any other quarters which are willing and able to give that sup port he said Alice declared that the best hope of preventing war was to get a firm union between Britain France and Russia Dealing with the negotiations with Russia the prime minister said I find it difficult to understand why it should have been thought the suggestion we made was lack ing in reciprocity It may be the view that it did not cover the case of certain states other than Po land and Rumania through which perhaps she Russia might be at tacked but I say on the other hand it did not apply to certain western states which if attacked must ultimately involve us in war Clearly there is a misunder standing and whatever can bo al leged against our proposal I am sure it could not be alleged it was unfair x x x Want Early Agreement We arc anxious that we should be able lr come to an agreement quickly I ask tiie house to re member that in this matter we are trying to build up not only an alliance between ourselves and other countries but a peace front against aggression and we should not be succeeding in our policy if by ensuring the cooperation of ope country we rendered another country uneasy and unwilling to cooperate with us The government had hoped he saidthat Russia might have been willing to declare its agreement with us on those matters on which we could agree1 and to continue n discussions at greater length on subjects where there were diffi culties He expressed regret that Rus sia had decided not to send hei first assistant foreign commissary Vladimir P Potemkin to Geneva ;
