WASHINGTON MERRY (Continued trom Page 4) antine" speech in Chicago, urging an economic blockade of aggressor nations.

Simultaneously the British started a part of their Fleet through Gibraltar to Singapore. However, the Axis, probably decoding American diplomatic cables, discovered what was happening and Mussolini started a submarine campaign against British merchant shipping in Spanish waters. So the British fleet turned back from Singapore and remained near Spain and Gibraltar. State Department Appeases Roosevelt, however, persevered. Calling the Brussels Conference of the Nine Power nations supposed to protect China, he gave Norman Davis, head of the American delegation, full power to invoke an economic blockade against Japan.

Following this, FDR made his greatest mistake. He went on a fishing trip. In his absence, appeasers inside the State Department made mincemeat of his instructions to Davis. Every move Davis made at Brussels was stymied in Washington. The attempt to block Japan was a complete fiasco.

That attempt, in the autumn of 1937, was the last real move to save the faltering machinery of peace, In October 1938, at Munich, came one more semi-attempt, but it was halfhearted and every realist knew that there was no chance whatsoever of stopping Hitler by giving him the Sudetenland. But, unfortunately, many diplomats are not realists. If they were, they never would have permitted the first small penetrations of the world's peace machinery in Manchuria, in Ethiopia, in the Rhineland. (Copyright, 1946, by The Bell Syndicate, Inc.)

The assembly last Jan. 15 adopted by a 120-2 vote a resolution censuring Schenck for what it termed "reprehensible" conduct. Schenck testified before the special grand jury concerning the incident and said he had considered of toothpowder, indicating that somebody somewhere decided the natives of his town no longer needed to polish their choppers.

Our Community Nursing Service has helped bring strong and healthy babies into the world besides providing health instruction for growing Youth and his elders. A Day Nursery is provided for the tiny tot; The Bradford County Child Health Committee has aided those who had nowhere else to turn for Health Guidance.

Reuther replied to the charges, point by point, within a matter of minutes, claiming that Thomas in his attack was following the Cornmunist line "that the Daily Worker has been running for a year." The delegates for the most part took the charges and counter charges calmly They approved a resolution calling on state legislatures to pass equal pay for equal work laws to give women an equal opportunity in industry. They rejected a proposal to lengthen the term of office for union leaders from one to two years, and a recommendation for establishment of a fair practices and anti-discrimination department within the UAW..
