tion has been materially changed
within the last lew weelts.
The main change la In Japan. Ap

He has two or three friends who

are flagrant cases. They collected dis

really had less connection with the
war than Injuries sustained by agita

Indiana Educator Tells of
Talk at Dinner With Five
Administration Workers
and Soviet News Agent
WASHINGTON, April 10 (AP)
The Bulwinkle committee voted
today to summon all persons who
participated in a Virginia twi
ner last September on which Dr.
William A. Wirt said he partially
based, his "brain truster" revolu
tion statements.
WASHINGTON, April 10. (AP)
Testlmoriy by Dr. William A. Wirt
today naming; "brain trusters and
their satellites" as having talked to
him of "overthrowing the social order"
gave rise to Indications that those
named would be subpoenaed In the
house Investigation.
The Gary, Xnd., educator told of an
evening spent In September with five
administration workers and Lawrence
Todd, local representative of Tasa,
the soviet news agency.
Despite repeated attempts to con
fine his remarks to the dinner In
question, he frequently quoted from
public statements by Secretary Wal
lace and Dr. Rexford Guy Tugwell,
assistant secretary of agriculture,
especially the latter. Sometimes his
words were cheered by persons In the
audience that crammed the bouse
caucus room.
Gag Rule Claimed,
Limiting his testimony was decried
by Republican members of the com
mittee as "gag rule.' Wirt did not
complete his statement, and will con
tinue tomorrow.
Meanwhile, It evidently was planned
to call at least Todd and Miss Hilde
garde Kneeland. the latter a "depart
ment of commerce economist, for
their versions of the conversation re
lated by Wirt. Todd denied to re
porters that. he had -said, (is Wirt as
serted, that 'President Roosevelt was
"the Kerensky" of a revolution and
would be succeeded by "a Stalin."
The committee arranged to meet
late In the day to decide on pro
cedure. Speaker Rainey expressed the opin
ion Wirt's allegations "have been
shown to be silly, but If we call these
additional persons his statements
will get sillier and sillier.'
Charges Not So Silly.
Representative Lehlbach (R.. N. J.)
a member of the committee, disagreed
with the "silly" Judgment, and told
reporters :
"I think Dr. Wirt got off to a very
good start. His testimony at least
shows the necessity of making a
thorough Investigation."
Toward the close of today's session
Wirt suggested that the committee
summon Lewis W. Douglas, budget
director, and W. I. Westervelt, Chi
cago business man formerly with the
farm administration. They, Wirt as
serted, could throw more light on
the alleged plotting to bring com
munism. Speaker Ralney's name figured, too.
Wirt quoting Westervelt as having
said "he had asked Rainey what con
gress was going to do; and Rainey re
plied that congress would assemble,
pass certain laws, stay In session until
May or June, and within a month or
six weeks the government would take
over some industries 'and then I don't
know what will happen'."

REGIONAL MEET
Only 'Milking' Dairymen
Allowed Vote On Federal
Adjustment Plan to Pre
vent Collapse of Prices
PORTLAND, April 10. (AP)
gon, Washington and Idaho dairymen
today voted six to one approval of the
government's proposed dairy adjust
ment program with suggestions for
minor changes, at the final session
of the two-day regional meeting
called to consider this last AAA pro
posal. Federal representatives were to leave
later today for Berkeley. Cal., where
the last of 15 regional meetings will
be held.
Opposition to the general plan
which was reported strong In some
regional meetings farther east, was
found today to be confined largely
to a few who proposed entirely dif
ferent Ideas of economic adjustment,
so that the final vote for adoption of
the plan with suggested amendments
was 108 to 17.
Dean W. A. Schoenfeld of Oregon
State College, as chairman, had pre
viously ruled that only bona fide
"milking" dairymen should vote on
the question. .This eliminated from
the count members of other branches
of the Industry and the state and
government representatives who had
been invited to participate In the dis
cussions. Complete reports of' all the meet
ings will be taken to Washington,
D. C, where, from the evidence ob
tained from the entire country, de
cision will be made as to whether a
production control plan will be put
Into effect and what modifications,
If any, will be made In the tentative
program.
Supplementing the main action on
-the program" itself, the conference
adopted without dissenting vote a
resolution asking the president to
use his Influence to bring about adop
tion of the pending bill for an -excise
tax on all importations of vegetable
oils.
TALK AT
Dr. Dan E. Standard presented
splendid, inspirational address on the
subject of "Evaluation" before the
members of the Medford Rotary club
at a luncheon meeting today at the
Hotel Medford. Dr. Standard's inter
esting talk was divided Into three
sections under the heads of retro
spection, introspection and perspec
tion and his message was enthusias
tically received by the Rotarians.
Advancement In economic and
social fields during the past half
century was covered by the speaker
who frankly expressed doubt in the
value to mankind of recent mechan
ical developments due to the fact
that social and economic adjust
ments of the people themselves havu
not kept pace with this advancement.
"Recent economic conditions have
brought us to our senses to a large
measure" Dr. Standard said. "Many
who had forgotten such a thing as
unselfish consideration of others are
changed. The recent depression has
brought out a finer emotional side
of human nature."
Dr. Standard urged the Rotarians
to take Inventory of themselves so
that greater and more unselfish ac
complishment might result, " He also
paid tribute to the youth of today
and pointed out that the ability of
young folk and their rightful place
In the scheme of everyday life is now
recognized and accorded them.
Dr. Standard's address was one of
the finest yet presented before tbe
Medford Rotary club.

ANOTHER STRIKE
LOOMS IN PATH
Motor Products Corporation
Workers to Return to Jobs
Tool and Die Makers
Now Threaten Walkout
DETROIT, April 10. (P) A "key"
strike that threw 33,400 automobile
workers out ot their Jobs has been
settled, but mediators looked anx
iously today toward s threatened
walkout in the vital tool and die
Industry.
William Collins. American Federa
tion of Labor leader, announced last
night that striking employes of the
Motor products corporation had
agreed to return to work this morn
ing at a 10 per cent increase In wages.
This dispute involved 1.000 strikers
and 4.000 others laid off because of
the walkout,
Edward P. MoGrady, NRA represen
tative of Oen. Hugh S. Johnson, play
ed a prominent part In this settle
ment, which was regarded as a dis
tinct step toward peace In the motor
car Industry.
, The strike In the Motor Products
plant, which makes auto parts, had
thrown 18.000 men out of work in
the Hudson factory yesterday because
of inability to get materials. The
Hudson factory was expected to re
sume work late today or tomorrow.
A threat of a strike of tool and
die-makers who want a 30 per cent
wage boost became the next hurdle
for the peacemakers. The Mechan
ics' Educational Society of America
may call these workers out on Thurs
day In Detroit, Pontlac and Flint If
the Job shops In which they are em
ployed refuse to meet the demand.
