A COPY ASSOCIATED PRESS AND UNITED PRESS FULL LEASED WIRES MASON GITY IOWA THURSDAY MAY 1937 THIS PAPER CONSISTS OF TWO SECTIONS SECTION ONE NO 192 Talk About Depressions Stewart Surprised More Dont Seek Solution By CHARLES F STEWAKT ASHING TON CPA How will thf United States meet its next depres sion One hears this question asked with sur prising frequen cy in Washing tons official circlet Senator Mil lard E Tydings of Maiyland re cently put it with extraor dinary plain ness Another will be due in 1939 or 1940 he said He quoted Chairman Eccles of the federal reserve board for mer Vice President Charles G Dawes and all economists as predicting it He agreed with them tco When it comes as it must wha are we going to do he asked Wallace Is Exception To me it seems queer that no public man with one exception inquires How is another depression to be prevented The exception is Secretary of Agriculture Henry A Wallace Wallace suggests the desirabil ity of hitting upon some plan to end the alternation of booms and slumps SMASH DES MOINES WINDOWS Opposes World Monetary Meeting GERM ANY CALLS TO CRITICISMS Lodges Informal Protest at Cardinals Insults to Hitler Nazis WASHINGTON Ger man embassy has made informal representations to the state de partment over criticisms voiced by Cardinal Mundelein at Chicago against Chancellor Hitler and Ger manys nazi regime This was learned Thursday co incident with a statement by em bassy officials that Ambassador Hans H Dieckhoff had not thus far received instructions from his government to make a formal pro tes Subsequently Dieckhoff after a j brief courtesy call on Wilbur J Carr assistant secretary of state told newsmen that the King George VI Holds Coronation Navy Review Warships of Britain Just what his scheme is does not i tion by the embassy on its own ini seem clear to me Nevertheless it appears to me to be a far brighter idea not to have depressions than to know how to struggle tnrough them with as little distress as possible when they befall Henry George Disciple I suspect Secretary Wallace of being a disciple of Henry George an economist of a generation ago the Messiah ofthe single tax philosophy of thai philoso phy which if accepted in time probably wouldhave prevented subsequent booms and slumps If it had oeen accepted then I dont doubt that jj would have done the business I am not so sure that the Henry Georgian plan of taxation exclu sively upon land values could be adopted today without a revolu tion Even yet the theory is cor rect but are different A start is harder if not impos sible It is almost if not quite too late Different in 80s In the 1880s and a little later there was in plenty of free land All the cash it took to preempt a sizable bit of it was a nominal filing fee Anyone who in the east was tiative seemed to close the incident as far as his government con cerned No Reply Required Secretary Hull said at his press conference that the character of the representations did riot call for a reply by this government Had they been of a formal nature diplomatic custom would have re quired the state department to make some rejoinder Dieckhoff indicated he expected no formal protest to be made When we received a report ol Cardinal Mundeleins remarks from our consul general in Chi Dieckhoff said we called it to the attention of the state de partment hi the usualfriendly way Of course

coincident ly with news from Paris that France had approved a British suggestion for international action designed to arrange a truce in the civil war under which all foreign volunteers would be withdrawn It was believed that the loyalist telegram made certain a bitter fight in the council over the prob lem of foreign intervention in Spain and of the noninterven tion policy of the European pow ers The loyalist government holds that it is the legal government of Spain particularly as nearly all world powers maintain diplomatic relations with it Hence it is argued that the present nonin
