i Events the Senate Ratifies the Hoover War Debt Moratorium After Warm Debate--Woman Made Member of Arms Parley Delegation. By EDWARD W. PICKARD .~[XTY-NINE senators voting In the t.~ affirmative, some with reluctance the senate ratified the ltoover mora- torium on lntergovernmental debts after several days of hectic debate. Twelve members, equally di- vided between the two parties, were recorded in opposition. The Re- publicans, all listed as insurgents, were Fra- zler. Johnson, Nor- beck, Norris, Nye and Schali. The Democrats who voted no were Bulow, Caraway, Con- Sen, dotln~n "naliy, Dill, McKellar and Thomas. In view of the pledges President Hoover had received in advance, the fight againSt ratification was admt, tted- ly hopeless, but Senator Johnson of Oalifornia and several others insisted nevertheless, on voicing at length their objections to the resolution. Johnson in particular was hitter in his denun dation of Mr. Hoover's course in thls matter, criticizing him for not giving due notice that the moratorium as originally proposed had to be altered to mar France. He repeatedly charged that the President had abandoned the former American policy and had agreed to the linking of war debts and reparations. McKeilar of Tennessee. Gore of Oklahoma, and one or two oth~ ors were scarcely less outspoken that Johnson In their opposition. The senate rejected half a dozen amendments and adopted the resolu- tion as It came froth the house which had passed it by a vote of 317 to 100 after adding an amendment which puts congress on record as not committing Itself to any policy of cancellation or revision of war debts. Both house and senate, having set- tled the moratorium matter, adjourned until January 4. Senator Borab made a futile effort to have the date for reconvenlng changed to January 28, as the President had recommended. About the time the President was ~gulng the moratorium resolution WOrd came from Basel that the Young plan advisory committee had report- ed that Germany will be unable to re- sume payment of the conditional rep- aratlons when the moratorium termi- nates next July, and that "adJustment of all reparatlons and war debts to the troubled situation of the world" would be essential The next repara- tions conference IS to open at The Hauge on January 18. F, CAUSE of difficulty in obtaining foreign exchange for debt remit- the government of Hungary declared a moretortum for one year on forei~a debts The decree stipulated that public and private debts for which SU~elent foreign currency is not avail- able must be paid in pengoes to the Hungarian National bank which wih hold the money as trustee for the cred. ttors. The pease is the Hungarian monetary unit. In order that trade and commerce may not halt, the National bank wlll put at the disposal of Hungarian citi. zeus such sums as are needed to carry on and also will cover service on the so-called credit-freezing agreement. WHILE congress was debating the moratorium, the senate finance committee continued its inquiry into the sale of foreign securities In this country. Several emi. ael~t bankers were heard, the most inter- eating in iome ways being Otto H. Kabn, bead of Kuhn, Loeb & Co. For hours Mr. Kahn held forth, ex- plalnLug the intrica. eles of International finance and describ- ing vividly the crisis In world economics. Although Mr. Kahn Otto H. Kshn made dear that he was opposed to either cancellation or permanent reduction of the war debts Owed the United States, he declared that the emergency required tempor- ary adjustments to lighten the burden of German reparations and European war debts Neither Justice nor expe dlency could lead to insistence at this moment on demands for payments to the full letter of agreements effected in the past, Mr. Kahn said. In an outline of his own attitude, in vigorolm .terms, Mr. Kahn, sald~ "if it were possible to find a way by which all these reparations and war debts, which hang around the neck of the world like a millstone, could be t~/ken out end nnk in the ocean, I should welcome it." pREKIDENT HOOVER announced that Oen. Charlem G, Dawes, am- would head the world In Geneva. a member of the Emma Woolley, Mount Holyoke college, the et her mx to be given m ch a tJea by a Irt-clm power. She has beeu am acttve work for late, national peace and an advocate of navy reduction. Senator Claude A. Swanson of Virginia. Democrat and member of the senate foreign affairs and naval committees` already had been named as a delegate. The President and Mr. Stimson will direct the course of the American dele- gation from Washington. The mission will go armed with secret instructions and will keep In close touch with tim State department. DURING consideration of President Hoover's proposed $50().0qM),000 reconstruction finance corporation by the senate banking and currency suh- committee. D a n i e I WIIlard, president of the Baltimore & Ohio railroad, praised the inclusion of the rail- roads in the category of institutions to be aided as necessary at this "critical time." Banker witnesses heard did not oppose this inclusion. Mr. Willard told the committee the t the Daniel Willard railroads throughout the country had $1,000,000.000 In ma. rarities falling due within the next three years and no money to pay them. His own railroad, he admitted, must meet $8,000,000 worth of ma- turities in May; $35,000,000 more In August. "It would be a satisfaction to me." said Mr. Willard, "and I think tt would be in the public interest, if. when these securities mature next summer, we could borrow at a reasonable rate of interest from the government. And, of course, it would be to our~ interest to pay back as quickly as possible. It would be a good deal for the govern- ment with a profit, and the hazard would be well nigh aegilgibi~ The alternative, he pointed out, would be for the railroads to borrow from other sources and at "stress p rices," Senator Couzens of Michigan broke in at one point with the assertion that it was folly for a board of "now experts in railroad affairs" to pass Judgment on loans to railroads; and praised the success of the transporta. tion act of 1920 with its revolving fund of ~q00.(~0,000 adminisiered by "railroad experts." He intimated that he will-seek to revive a part of that act of 1920. SENATOR GERALD NYE of North Dakota, on behalf of his committee on campaign expenditures, reported to the senate that Bishop James Cannon Jr., had violaled the corrupt practices act in his handling of campaign funds in 1928. The committee also declared that a considerable part of the $133,000 received by the bishop and his anti-Smith Democratic committee found its way into his personal accounts. Bishop Cannon, It was found, had per- Bishop Cannon serially handled the greater share of the money. He handled it, so Inves- tigators discovered, through no less. than ten bank accounts, from and to which funds were transferred in a maze of transactions All told. the committee learned, $18,300 in.political contributions was transferred to the blShop's private accounts and re- mained there until long after the elec- tio~ DISPATCHES from Paris stated that France was on the point of signing two important trade treaties.. One is with Germany and provides that that country shall supply France with all the nitrates she needs for the next nine months. The other Is with Russia and in it France pledges herself never to Join any movement to boycott any class of Russian goods or refuse to supply the Soviets with any materials they may need. France's stock of nitrates, an essen. tiai for the manufacture of war muni- tions, is said to be dangerously de- pleted, and it Is held as curious that Germany should undertake to supply the deficiency and, through other pro- visions of the treaty, to aid in build- lng up the French nitrate Industry to a point where it will be Independent of the Germans. In the pact with Ru~sis both na- tions agree to commit no act of ag- gremion against each other and not to take recourse to war; and ff a third country commits an act of aggres~slou against one signatory, the other signa- tory promises to observe neutrality and give no help to the aggressor nation. pRI~MIER MUSSOLINI of Italy suf- fered a severe leas In the death of his beloved brother Arnaldo, diree- to~ of the newspaper Popolo d'Italls and able assistant of the dace in the Fae~lst reglme. He died suddenly In Milan aftec an attack of angina peetoris. / THE TIMES, SUNDANCE, WYOMING, JANUARY 7, 1932. CHRISTMAS and the succeeding days In the White House were decidedly merry. For the first time since he became President, Mr. Hoover had all his family with him for the yuletide. Mr. and Mrs. Herbert Hoover, Jr., were there and their two little children, Peggy Ann and Herbert IIL wire is known as Peter. came all the way from Cal;fornia to celebrate the holiday with their grandparents. Allan Hoover, too. came from Los An- geles where he is employed in a hank. On Wednesday Peggy and Peter were hostess and host at a children's party and the gifts brought by the guests were distributed to needy children. Clwistmas eve youngsters behmging to the White House secretaries marched with the ['residential family in a candle procession, listened to carols und then X received gifts from the Cilristmas tree.

The American legation in China warned Americans residing along the Peiping-Mukden railroad to evacuate to Tientsin. General HonJo sent a force of 600 Infantry and railroad guards north- ward from Mukden. These troops were instructed to seize the towns of Kangping, Changtu and Fakumen with the object of sweeping out 7.000 Chi- nese troops who are said to be men- acing Japanese lines of communica- tions on both the South Manchuria railway and the line runnmg north- west from Ssupingkal through Chen- chiattm cad Taonan. Fakumen was taken on Tuesday, CHINESE internal affairs, mean- while, were in a terrihle muss and the country was without a govern- meat. Every minister and vice ndn- ister resigned, and the nation was without an official to volce a protest against the Japanese aggression. The entire government quit despite an ap- peal from Gem Clan Ming-shu. acting head of the executive council, to stay on the Job. It was explained thai the resignations were due to indications of lack of confidence hy the public in its handling of the Manchurian affair. FOLLOWING the example of Great Britain, Australia has ousted its Labor government and Prime Minister James Sculiin and his cabinet have been replaced hy Joseph A. Lyons as premier and a coalition government made up of members of the United Australia and the Country parties. Lyons had been treasurer in Scullin's cabinet but had broken with his La- bor colleagues. In the dominion par- liament the coalition has now 5 seats otlt of 76; the f,aborites have 13. the Extreme Laborites have 9, and Inde- pendents. 2. LOSS of patronage is not the only trouble Representative Louis Mc- Fadden of Pennsylvania faces as a re- sult of hls fierce attack on President Hoover. He may even lose hls seat In the house at the next election.

Whether or not It Is given to Mrs. Plnchet. Back In 1928 the lady and McFadden had an Interesting fight for the nom- ination and he won with the organiza- tion aid. McFadden was notified by the Post Office department that he had been cut off from all patronage tn his dis- trict. Postmaster General Brown wrote him stating that his speech against the President had convinced him that hls advice concerning aP- pointments would not be helpful to the department WHETHER or not Dwight F. Davis is to return to the Philippines as governor general was not decided dur- Ing the week. Mr. Davis arrived in Washington and had a long conference with the President. but did not hand in his resig- nation as had been ex- pected because Mrs. Davis Is unable to live in a tropical climat~ Coming from the White House he said to correspondents: 'There is nothing ! can say about the fu- ture except that the D.

This idea of com- plementing n o v e I woolens in w a r m ruddy colorings with spectacular furs Is being played up for all it is worth this season. As to the furs which enhance smart coats, suits ann ensembles, they are-not only in them- selves out of the ordinary, bul .flay are handled in most unusual and in teresting ways. A cilaracterislic fea- ture of the more voguish costumes in this winter's style panoranm Is thal of the little fur capelet which is in. terpreted in endless versions Tim frock Of dark green wool crepe, to the right In the illustration, is strikingly entranced witl} a separate capelet of moleskin, featuring . high neckline and fastened at the shouhler with large green hall buttons` Black patent leather oxfords with close rows of ecru stitching toA.~ether with a stun nine paten! leather ba~ add chic with this costume.

The Lander City Council has agreed to accept a new fuel gas rate offered by the New York Oil Company. The ~cceptance ended a year's controversy between the city and the oil company. The new rate represents a reduction of 10 per cent over the rates for last year, officials said. Shirley I.ea Cottrell, 3-year-old daaghter of Mr. and Mrs. Elwood ('ot- trell of V,'orland, died recently fol- lowing the accidental taking of poison while at play. The child discovered a bottle of pills in a cabinet and ate the contents. Each pill contained a small amount of strychnine which caused her death. A decision to start legal action to obtain ,payment of delinquent assess- ments against the Cowley Drainage district in Big Horn county has been reached by state officials. James Greenwood, attorney general, an- nounced in Cheyenne a few days ago. Greenwood said the state probably will file suit in the District Court at Bas'n to collect the assessments. The work of dismantling buildings which occupy the site for a new $90,- 000 federal postoffice to be construct- ed next spring, has been resumed in Thermopolis. The work was inter- rupted because of a dispute which arose over the value of the buildings. The dispute has been settled in Fed- eral Dist~ct Court at Cheyenne. F. D. Hagins of Laramie has been appointed assistant director of the U. S. employment service in Wyoming and will be in charge of an office to be established in Cheyenne. Horns was appointed assistant to J. F. Min- nick, state director, with offices at Casper. The appointment was made by W. N. Desk. secretary of labor. Labor organizations in Wyoming re- cently sent a protest to the Wyoming congressional delegation against the use of natural gas in the federal vet- erans" hospital for Wyoming, to be constructed soon. The protest was by officials of the United Mine Work- ers of America, Wyoming district, and the Wyoming State Federation of La- bor. A book, "Range Sheep and Wool," by Dean John Hill of the University College of Agriculture, and Dr. Fred S. Hultz. head of the animal hus- bandry department at Laramie, was recently reviewed by the Interna- tional Review of Agriculture, Rome, according to word received in Lara- mie from the International Institute of Agriculture. Ordered deported Oct. 26, 1927, George Pedaris of Laxamie, Wyo., has won the legal right to remain in the United States.

Figures compiled by the Great Western Sugar Company revealed to beet growers the most successful pro- ducers on the Wheatland Flats in 1931. R. B. Logan leads the list in the columns headed highest yield, and highest combination of sugar content and yield. The grower securing hon- ors in the highest amount of sugar content was C. M. Gray. Total expenditures for county gov- ernments during 1530 were $3.117,- 988.20 in Wyoming, reports from coun- ty officials to the state examiner's office in Cheyenne, show. The total was an increase of $292.418.22 over the preceding year. Nineteen of the twenty-three counties in the state showed an increase in operating ex- penses and four showed a decrease. Skunks have multiplied so rapidly in eastern and northern Wyoming during the last two years they are becoming a nuisance. Adolph S. Harem, leader of the biological sur- vey for Wyoming, related in Cheyenne how a family skunks took possession of a dude ranch near Sheridan and drove all the guests out. It took three brave hunters and a cleanup squad to make the ranch habitaable once more. The "parked car" incident at the University of Wyoming at Laramie, is a closed incident. Student leaders at the university announced they would accept as final the decision of the university board of trustees, an- nounced recently, which upheld Dr. A. G. Crane, president, In his demand that petting and other "objectionable practices" be eliminated from the, campus. A gift of a brick business block, willed to Converse county by the late Mrs. Luella Mendenhall of Douglas, by which she sought to provide a trust fund from the property for the benefit of senior students of the Con- verse county high school, was recent- ly refused by the county commiseion- ere of Converse. The gift had never been accepted by the county and the board felt that the limited revenue derived from it would not warrant acceptance. The property will now revert to the legal heirs of Mrs. Men- denhall.

George Jean Nathan writes, in the Forum and Century: Work hard: play to the allowable limit, disregard equally the good or bad opinion of others; never do a friend s dirly trick; eat and drink what you feel like when you feel like; never grow Indignant over anything; trust to tobacco for calm and serenity; bathe twice a day; modify the esthetic philosophy of Croce but slightly with that of San- tayana and achieve for oneself a pragmatic sufficiency in the beauty of the esthetic surface of life. Learn to play at least one musical Instrument and then play it only 1~ private; never allow oneself even a passing thought of death ; never con- tradlct anyone or seek to prove any- thing to anyone unless one gets paid for it In cold, hard coin; live the moment to the utmost of its possi- bilities ; treat one's enemies with po- lite inconsideration; avoid persons who are chronically in need, and be satisfied with life always, but never w~th oneself. An infinite belief In the pussibill- tles of oneself, with a coincidental critical assessment and derogation of one's achievements; self-respect combined with a measure of self- surgery; aristocracy of mind com- bined with dem~racy of heart : forthrightness with modesty or at least with good manners; dignity with a quiet langh ; honor and hon- esty and decency--these are the greatest qualities that man can hope to attain,, And as one man, my hope is to attain them.
