President Hoover Talks of
Problems and Policies
in Three Speeches.
By EDWARD W. PICKARD
“tj^HEEE public addresses in two
days gave President Hoover oppor
tunity to say a lot of things about our
problems, our Institutions and our
prospects. His utterances on each oc
casion were dignified and well consid
ered : they were praised by his admir
ers and fellow Republicans, and belit
tled by some Democrats and others who
do not agree with bis national policies.
Speaking before the convention of
the American Legion In Boston, the
President told the Legionnaires that
the ideals and purposes of tlieir organ
ization must be translated into cold
realism of the day to day task of citi
zenship ; and he reminded them that
the Legion is consecrated by Its con
stitution to the high purpose of up
holding the laws of the country. He
touched on preparedness, and said
that real peace in the world requires
something more than treaties, that all
International good will is founded on
mutual respect among the nations.
Mr. Hoover expressed warmly the
nation’s gratitude to the men who
served in the World war and its sym
pathy for wounded and disabled vet
erans. He continued;
■'In addition to hospitalization, re
habilitation, war risk insurance, ad
justed compensation, and priority in
civil service, the government has un
dertaken through disability allowances
to provide for some 700,000 veterans
of the World war. Our total outlays
on all services to World war veterans
are nearing $600,000,000 a year and
to veterans of all wars nearly $900.-
000,000 per annum.
"The nation assumes an obligation
when it sends Its sons to war. The
nation is proud to requite this obliga
tion within Its full resources. I have
been glad of the opportunity to favor
the extension of these services in such
« manner that they cover without
question all cases of disablement
whether from war or peace.
"There is, however, a deep responsi
bility of citizenship in the administra
tion of this trust of mutual helpful
ness which peculiarly lies upon your
members, and that is that the de
mands upon the government should
not exceed the measure that justice
requires and self-help con provide. If
we shall overload the burden of tax
ation we shall stagnate our economic
progress and we shall by the slacken
ing of his progress place penalties up
on every citizen."
L ater in the day the President ap
peared before'the American Eedera-
tion of Labor convention and gave the
workers of the nation a message of
hope and encouragement. He said that
co-operation resulting from confer
ences which he Initiated has materi-
ahy minimized the adverse effects of
the business depression, that wage
levels have been generally maintained,
that industrial strife has been reduced
to a minimum and that some of the
slack in employment lias been taken
up by the speeding up of public works
construction. He called for nation-wide
teamwork to pull the country out of
the slump and set it once more on the
high road to prosperit.v.
Referring to the displacement of as
many as 2.000,000 workers by labor
saving devices and a breakdown of
wages on account of destructive com
petition. Mr. Hoover said that one key
to a solution of the problem lies in
reduction of this competition possibly
by a revision of regulatory laws. This
was interpreted as a suggestion for
amendment of anti-trust laws.’
F rom Boston the President traveled
down to the northern border of
South Carolina and participated in
the celebration of the one hundred
fiftieth anniversary of the battle of
Kings Mountain, •sihich was a ciucial
engagement in the Revolutionary ^rar.
In his address he dwelt on the insti
tutions, the ideals and the spirit of
America, and took the opportunity to
score the Reds.
Likening the American "system” to
a race, with tlie government as um
pire, Mr. Hoover said that "Social
ism or Its violent brother, Bolshe
vism, would compel all the runners
to end the race equally," while "an
archy would provide neither train
ing nor umpire," and “despotism or
class government picks those who
run and also those who win.”
But ail the menace does not come
from without, Che President said, add
ing that "there are always malevo
lent or selfish forces at work which,
unchecked, would destroy the very
basis of our American life."
Mr. Hoover defended the conserv
ative policies of his administration,
and denounced governmental inter
ference in business as ‘‘a destruction
of equal opportunity and the incar
nation of tyranny through bureau
cracy.”
T his is the favorite season for na
tional conventions, and some of
the most important last week heard
and considered some vital proposi
tions. Delegates to the A. F. of L.
meeting received 'he report of their
executive councir dealing with means
for alleviation and removal of unem
ployment causes and with effort to
carry forward attainment of political
objectives of unions; with the cam
paign to unionize the South, and spe
cific details of national policy toward
immigration; judicial action In indus
trial disputes, and the approach of
more Intimate industrial association
with enterprise and organization of
other countries. President William
Green dwelt especially on the cam
paign for the five-day week. Among
the resolutions submitted was one for
change in the federation’s prohibition
policy from modification to repeal.
Another asked the federation to sup
port unemployment insurance legis
lation.
Before the National Association of
Manufacturers, in session in New
York, President .John E. Edgerton of
Tennessee proclaimed the "unashamed
resistance of organized industry" to
govemmentnl pensions for the aged,
insurance for the unemployed and
similar legislation. He declared noth
ing has happened to weaken the con
fidence of understanding minds in the
soundness of the American economic
system or sclieme of government.
.Tames A. Emery, general counsel for
the association, upheld lobbying for
and against legislation as a private
right and a public duty. He sounded
a warning that public expenditures,
unless checked, soon will consume
one-fifth of the national indoifie.
F OLLOWING' the lead of their fel
low Latin-Americans in other coun
tries, Brazilians took up the revolu
tionary movement, seeking to over
throw the gpvernraent of President
Washington Luis and to prevent the
inauguration of President-Elect Julio
Prestes. They asserted Prestes was
elected by fraud and that new elec-
rlons must be held. Such rapid prog
ress was made by tlie revolutionists
that their complete success may be a
matter of history before this Is read.
On the other hand, the federal gov
ernment declared the revolt would be
suppressed. The rebellion started al
most simultaneously in several of the
most important states, notably Rio
Grande do Sjal, Parana, Minas Geraes
and Pernambuco. By the middle of
the week the important city of Per
nambuco had been captured by the
revolutionists after two days of fight
ing, and large armies were converg
ing on Sao Paulo, center of the vast
coffee-growing region. Numerous
smaller cities and towns were occu
pied without bloodshed.
Of course tlie rebels were not hav
ing their own way everywhere, for the
federal armies and the navy were ac
tive, and two classes of reservists
were called out Measures were tak
en to protect Rio de Janeiro from at
tack. It was feared the food prob
lem In the capital city might become
G reat Britain’s hope to revive
her declining trade by the Insti
tution of free trade witliin the empire
was definitely shelved In the imperial
conference. After J. H. Thomas, do
minions secretary, had given the facts
and figures of England's distress and
asked If something could not be done
about It, the representatives of one
dominion after another arose and de
clared in effect that they would not
give up the protection of vheir own
industries for the sake of Great Brit
ain. All of them, however, expressed
hope that Great Britain would buy
more of tiieir agricultural products,
and there were covert suggestions of
a British tariff on foreign food,
against which the present British gov
ernment is pledged. Premier Bennett
of Canada voiced what seemed to be
the general opinion of the dominions
when he said flatly: “In our opinion
empire free trade is neither desirable
nor possible.”
ENGLAND’S huge dirigible. R-101,
’argest In the world, crashed and
exploded near Beauvais, France, soon
after its start for India, and 48 men
perished, only seven of those aboard
surviving the disaster. Among the vic
tims were Lord Thomson, minister of
air; Sir W. Sefton Brancker, director,
of civil aviation, and many other lead
ing air experts and airmen. The ship
was flying low through a dark, stormy
night and apparently dipped so far
that it struck a hill. The bag ripped
and sparks from the motors set off
the Inflammable hydrogen gas.
P'ollowing a day of ofllcial mourning
in France d'creed by the government,
the bodies of the dead were taken to
London and placed in state in West
minster hall, A solemn national funer
al service was held and the remains
were then interred in a common grave
at Cardington, the home port of the
ill-fated dirigible.
Most of the fatalities in this disas
ter were due doubtless to the use of
hydrogen gas in the bug. Helium gas,
which is used In American dirigibles,
is not Inflammable; but the* United
States has the only unlimited supply
of that gas and its export is forbidden
by law. It is likely this ban will be
removed by the next congress.
One of the big Lufthansa passenger
planes of Germany was caught In a
violent squall at Dresden and was
dashed to earth. Six passengers, the
pilot and the mechanic were killed.
A nnouncement is made of the
betrothal of King Boris of Bul
garia and Princess Glovanna, daughter
of the king and queen of Italy. The
oSicial organ of the Vatican denies a
report that the Vatican had consented
to an arrangement by which the first
son of this union would be reared in
the Bulgarian Orthodox church and
any other children would be brought
up as Roman Catholics.
^HICAGO’S underworld “pulled a
fast one” the other evening which
caused Police Commissioner Alcock
and his men much embarrassment.
Four young thugs held up the auto
mobile of Mrs. Thompson, wife of the
mayor, at the door of her residence
and took all the jewelry the lady was
wearing, as well as the gun of her
policeman-chauffeur. It may have been
sheer bravado or, as the police sug
gest, a frame-up to have Alcoek ousted
so that a man more lenient to or
ganized crime in Chicago might have
bis place.
The campaign to jail the Chicago
master criminals or drive them from
the city Is progressing slowly and not
so surely. Several of the worst gang
sters have been arrested on vagrancy
charges and held in heavy bonds; but
unscrupulous lawyers and magistrates
who are over-observant of technical!"
ties may frustrate the best efforts ot
the crusaders.
B y A resolution adopted by the Na
tional Poultry, Butter and Egg as
sociation in annual convention in Chi
cago, an organized attack was started
on the federal agricultural marketing
act.
The resolution “calls upon acd Im
plores the leaders of representative
units of this industry to lay aside all
other considerations and join a move
ment to perfect an organization with
prestige and power enough to carry on
a determined fight" against the farm
act and any other “radical legisla
tion in general and that affecting our
own industry lu particular.”
'The officers of the association,
whose industry is estimated by them
to approximate a volume of a billion
dollars annually, are Instructed by the
resolution to “accept it as a mandate
to proceed with all possible force and
dispatch."

RUSS. GRAIN MENACE
TO U. S., SAYS LEGGE
To Flood American Market,
Farm Bd. Head Predicts.
Chicago.—Predicting that in three
years Russia would be flooding world
markets with cereal grains, except
corn, to the department >f American
farmers, Alexander Legge. chairman
of the federal farm board, said the
government’s De;mr(ment of Agricul
ture and his board intended to give
grain growers full warning of what
was coming. He sh’oUe before the Na-
tiona! Association of Farm Equipment
Manufacturers at Us annual meeting
held here.
“There is no Santa Claus in TVasii-
ington," Mr. Legge declared. “We are
simply trying to aid the growers when
they themselves volunteer to organize
and readjust their meihods to modern
conditions. We have set up seven
central marketing-agencies and turned
them over to farmers, and are helping
other groups that need it. Our only
interest thereaftei is as creditor.”
Cheap money rates for many months
have not brought a “comeback” in
business or agriculture. Mr. Legge as
serted, but Americans are better off
today than people in other countries.
He expressed the hope that the bot
tom of business depression had been
reached. New York hunkers have as
sured him tliere can be no stabiliza
tion of securities until commodity
prices start back upward, he said, ex
pressing the opinion that big business
was just beginning to realize the basic
Importance of agricultural well-being.
"Manufacturers in recent years have
been obliged to discard old methods
and rearrange their factory units.’' the
farm board chainran declared. “Farm
ers, unorganized, have been unable to
do this, and conlinue ’blind produc
tion.’ We are trying to point out the
need of taking Inventory and plan our
farm production accordingly. The two
crops, wheat and cotton, are in meat
need of readjustment, and in each case
our recommendations are different.”
Mr. Legge pointed out that lowered
production costs and reduced acreage
were necessary for grain growers,
with possible changes in the size of
farms to facilitate more economical
handling.
“Faulty information last fall caused
us to make some mistakes in handling
the wheat situnfli;’i.” Mr. Legge said,
"but high tanir'ift"Ills ini'i decreased
wheat consumption were not foreseen
by either the farm board or experi
enced men in the trade. We have bet
ter information sources now. and that
kind of error is out of the picture."
Senator Arthur dapper (Rep., Kan.)r
speaking at the luncheon of the ad
vertising council of the Chicago Asso
ciation of Commerce, said:
“Manipuiation of the New York
Stock exchange by ‘short selling’ does
n’t mean one-tenth to the West what
the menanclng control of your grain
markets by the speculative element
does." He added that Kansas and
Chicago had many things In common,
but the “henvy losses In grains due to
price fluctuations In Chicago have
caused total lack of confidence by
Kansans in the grain markets here.”
The senator asserted that unless the
wrongful practices are righted the
government will have to take a hand.
Claim Grain Men’s Right
to Defend Themselves
St. Paul, Minn.—Replying to the
second broadside fired by the farm
board in the last few days, in which
it is charged Minneapolis grain inter
ests are pouring .$1,000,(X)0 into propa
ganda to undermine the hoard, the
Minneapolis Chamber of Commerce de
nied the allegations and firmly upheld
the right of the grain trade to defend
its interests against any ill-advised
marketing theories and unfair com
petition originating from governmental
or any other source.
At the same time Soi’th St. Paul
Live Stock exchange members voiced
criticism of the farm board’s attitude
In the matter of the proposed investi
gation Into nmrked attacks on the
board and pointed out that, in the
live stock setups, It has been co-opera
tive organizations whose voices have
been lifted in loudest protests against
the farm board's program for that
industry.
Latest development in the farm
board's plan to unmask attacks whlcb
have been made on it include state
ments from Washington that, through
friendly western Interests, the board
learns that Minneapolis grain inter
ests are putting $1,000,000 a year Into
propaganda to undermine the board.
This money, the board claims, Is used
to finance 200 traveling representa
tives of Minneapolis grain commission
houses covering most of the elevators
of the Northwest.
Appropriates $30,000,000
New York.—An appropriation of
$30,000,000 for parks and playgrounds,
the largest ever made for that pur
pose In the city's history, was ap
proved by the board of estimate.
1,251 Infantile Paralysis Cases
San Francisco.—With 1,251 cases of
Infantile paralysis reported in Califor
nia tins year, Dr. George E. Ebrlght,
president of the state board of health,
said the peak apparently has been
reached.'
Three Children Die in Barn Fire
Marion, Ky.—'Three children were
burned to death in a fire which de
stroyed a barn on the farm of Graves
Rickett, near Raywick, in Marlon
county.
KING BORIS TO WED
King Boris
Rome.—Following announcement a
few days ago of his engagement, court
circles said King Boris III. of Bul
garia, really wooed and won his twen-
ty-three-year-old bride-to-be. Princess
Glovanna, daughter of the Italian king
and queen. Boris is thirty-six years
old.
It is said that one ceremony will be
performed at Rome and the second at
Breslav, ancient Bulgarian capital, in
the presence of the exiled King Ferdi
nand, Boris’ father.
ATHLETICS WIN FLAG
TWICE IN TWO YEARS
Philadelphia Beats St. Louis in
Championship Contest.
Philadelphia.—The Athletics of Phil
adelphia, world’s champions for the
second time in two years, have a right
to consider themselves “a gre'at team.”
The American leaguers won the se
ries in impressive fashion by captur
ing the sixth game, 7 to 1, from the
St. Louis Cardinals. The deciding
game never was in doubt, for the
world’s champions made two runs,
enough to win, in the first inning,
while the Missourians did not offer
a serious tnreat to score until the
ninth when they were seven runs
behind.
Against the effective pitching ot big
Geoi'gc Earnshaw, the Cards were al
most helpless, failing to get a man to
third base until two batsmen had been
retired in the final inning, When the
visitors counted their lone rub they
broke a streak of scoreless pitching
against them by Earnshaw, which had
extended over a stretch of 22 innings.
The big moose of the A’s blanked
the opposition in the last seventh in
ning of the second game of the series,
permitting six hits and winning, 6 to 1.
In Uie fifth game at St, Louis he went
the first seven Innings without being
nicked for a run when he left the
game for a pinch hitter. In this game
he had allowed only two hits. In tlie
final game he turned the opposition
back without a run and with only
three hits until the ninth when a sin
gle and double with a pass in between
was good for a run.
The triumpli of the Athletics marked
the fourth straight year in which the
American league champions had won
the highest prize baseball has to offer.
The Cardinals of 1930, however, may
take with the loser’s share of the se
ries receipts the satisfaction of carry
ing the autumn struggle a game long
er than did the Chicago Cubs Inst year
and two games father along the trail
than the Pirates of 1927 or the Cardi
nals of 1928, when tlie New York
Yaukees disposed of the National
league opposition in the minimum time
of four games.
The game which rang down the cur
tain on major league baseball for the
year was typical of the pitch set by
the moundsmen for the series.- In
only one game was the losing team
able to score more than one run and
In the opening battle only a scant two
runs fell to the lot of the vanquished.

court to decide whether persons who
refuse to declare without qualification
their willingness to take up arms In
defense of this country are entitled

The Legion again defeated what
many delegates charged was an at
tempt to drag it into politics by re
jecting a proposal for the immediate
payment of 80 per cent of the face
value of adjusted compensation cer
tificates. Proponents of the measure
held It would he a great aid in reliev
ing the hardships of veterans who are
unemployed, tut the opponents saw
in it a slap at the Washington admin
istration which sponsored the present
program of compensation.
Immediate action to bring the
United States navy up to the limit

rine, and the appropriation of $1,000,-

Boston, Mass.—William Green,

of Labor, in a speech before the fed
eration's annual convention pledged

ence, I will drive hhn from this move
ment if 1 can,” he declared. “And 1
know the brave men and women as
sociated with me who try to place
this movement upon a plane of hon
esty will join with me.”
(Treen’s declaration came after Rev.
Father J. W. McGuire, president of
SL Viator collie, Illinois, had
warned the convention that the work
of “dishonest and grafting labor lead
ers was being used to discredit or
ganized labor.”
James 'J. Davis, United States sec
retary of labor, in another address
before the convention expressed an
optimistic view of the future for la
bor and industry. "1 am one who be

era of prosperity, surpassing, per
haps, all former periods of prosperity
in the history of our country.”
