    Says Hoover Pushed By Bank

Republicans Are Coming Around to

Washington, July 21.—The Hoover
administration Is gradually adopt

lican theories failed to work. Re
cent steps to save tier many have
caused people here to recall the
Wilson attitude toward the Con
quered countries.
"President Hoover's abandonment
of the Insolatlonlst position which
has been a cardinal principle of his
own a-s well as the administrations
of Coolldge and Harding is a tardy
though none the less welcome recog

along," said Representative John M.
Evans, of Montana, today, through
the Democratic National Committee.

common screw.”
Judge Evans Is saying just what j
many other members of Oongre* ,
Republicans as well as Democrats, !
are thinking.
He continued:
Perhaps if Republican admlnis
tratlons had been less anxious to 1
discredit Woodrow Wilson and had
frankly participated In the con
gresses which have at various times
assembled in the effort to straighten
out world conditions, those condi
tions. might not have reached so
desperate a crisis as that which
compelled President Hoover’s pro
posal for the moratorium on inter
national debts. The circumstance
that a European debacle must in
volve the United States was as evi
dent two years ago or five years ago
as it was on the day President Hoo
ver suggested the moratorium. It
would have been a good thing had
we been as frankly and as openly
concerned In the arrangement of the
Dawes plan and tho Young plan
and the various other efforts In the
same direction.
The almost unanimous support
aecorder the President’s recent pro
posal indicates quite clearlly that
the fears that caused the adminis
tration to wriggle and squirm lest
It be blamed for becoming Involved
In European affairs were without
substantial basis.”
"Originally, the policy of strict
Isolation was a political expedient
adopted for tho sole purpose of as
sailing the prestige of Woodrow Wil
son and his administration," Mr.
Evans added. Later it became a
fetish and successive Republican
Presidents bowed down before It
until circumstances forced our pres
ent chief executive to recognise the
validity of what had been the Dem
ocratic position through all the time
since the World War.
Had the new international policy
been adopted by the Republican ad
ministration before the American
farmer was hopelessly bankrupt it
would doubtless have had a stronger
appeal to the agricultural section ”
Sees Calendar
With 13 Months
Head of Fixed Calendar League Sara
Present System Has Dis
Paris,—The year soon will have 13
months Instead of 13 In a proposal
sponsored by the League of Nations
and supported by 34 nations goes
Into effect, according to Moses B.
Cotsworth. director of the Inter
national Fixed Calendar League.
Disadvantages of the present cal
endar, Cotsworth said, are due to
three undisputed defects: The
months are unequal; the month Is
not an exact multiple of the week;
as the ordinary year consists of 3«5
days, Just one day over 53 weeks,
the week days change each year to
different datee.
Several plans have been proposed
to remedy these defects, but the plan
which Is claimed to have the most
advantages and is most practical
from the modern point of view Is
the International fixed calendar. It
would be applicable throughout the
world and would accord an Inter
national day of rest. Instead of the
present system of Sunday repose,
which Is not observed throughout
the world. In conformity with Bib
lical tradition, the eight day would
be a day without labor, while every
month would have 38 days.
The new month, which would be
Inserted between June and July, In
order to take up the days left over
from the 38-day months, would be
called Sol, according to the sugges
tion of Cotsworth, who Is the origi
nator of the new calendar.
Under the new calendar Sunday
would fall on the first, eight, 15th
and 33nd of the month. The day
of the week would always indicate
the monthly date and, conversely,
the monthly date would indicate
Its weekday name.
The complete four weeks would
exactly quarter all months, harmon
lilng weekly wages and expenses
with monthly rents and other ac
counts. Each month-end would
coincide with the week-end. Frac
tions of weeks at month -ends
would cease. Easter could be fixed
with benefit to churches, certain
industries and schools. As there
would be 13 monthly settlements
during the year Instead of twelve,
there would be a faster turnover In
money and the same volume of
business could be handled with less
money, resulting in considerable
saving In every country.
Cotsworth claims that labor, sci
ence and education will benefit by
the new calendar, which he hopes
to see adopted by general consent
of all the nations represented at

New York Police Chief Issues Defl->
an Challenge to Stop
New York.- A defiant challenge to j

400 night club proprietors into a

For one thing, he told the club
owners, the police department will
not tolerate shady night clubs own
ed by or catering to the underworld.
It is a wellknown fact that many
night resorts, particularly in the
Broadway sector, are frequented by
gangsters and thugs. Occasionally
these clubs have been the scene of
gang warfare.
Mulrooney s regulations forbid the
“push button" type at entrahce “the
front entrance must aland wide open
during business hours," he said,
"wide open to the public, police and
prohibition agents "
“I can’t dictate your prices," Mul
rooney said. “I can't tell you how
much to charge for cigarettes and
food. But I can tell you one thing.
Your customers are not going to be
robbed hereafter. Your short change
artists have got to stop. And the
business of raising checks is at an
end. This night club robbery is a
disgrace to the city.”
The police commissioner will de
mand that every night club proprie
tor register his name, right address,
photograph and fingerprints at the
headquarters, along with the name*
and addresses of all employes. It is
estimated that cabarets and night
clubs furnish employment for more
than 30,000 musicians, entertainers,
kitchen workers and waiters.

Senator McSwain Does Not Think
Tax Reduction Large Enough Here
To the Editor of The Star
In a recent issue of the Cleveland
Star there appeared a news item
and an editorial in which the coun
ty commissioners were given credit
for a possible tax reduction of'
twenty-three cents in this county, j
I am not writing you in any spirit
of criticism; but in an effort to get
the facts and the truth before the
public, and with the hope that
something may be done to give the
taxpayers of this county the tax
relief they are entitled to receive
a.> a result of the legislation enacted
by the recent General Assembly.
The past Legislature provided for
tire reduction of school tax in this
county from forty-seven cents tc
fifteen cents. It also turned the
roads and bridges over to the state
for maintenance, thereby relieving
the county from any tax for the
support and maintenance of bridges
and roads.
If the County Commissioners arc
going to adopt a fifty cent tax rate
for the coming year as stated in
The Cleveland Star; then instead
of a tax reduction we are about to
have a tax increase of thirteen
cents over the 1930 rate. The total
county rate for 1930 was seventy
three cents, distributed as follows:
Schools, operating expense_47c
Schools, capltol outlay and
debt service _. 7c
General fund...... 15c
Bridges ...... ...... 4c
Total .. .. ... .73c
Since the Legislature reduced the
school tax from forty-seven to fif
teen cents, and relieved the county
from maintaining it's bridges, the
tax rate in this county for 1931
should be as follows
Schools, operating expense . 15c
Schools, capltol outlay and
debt service _ 7c
General fund _ 15c
Total . ...... 37c
When the Legislature adjourned
I felt sure that we had enacted
legislation that would guarantee to
the people of this county a tax re
duction of at least fifty per cent,
or in other words that the tax rate
for 1931 would not exceed thirty
seven cents. If our tax rate is to
