NEW YORK, May 28.-(AP)-A
thorough going defense of the Uni-
ted States administration's tariff
policies was presented to the Na-
tional Foreign Trade convention to-
night by Dr. Julius Klein, assistant
secretary of commerce.
It came after a variety of attacks
on the tariff, including demands
I for a special Congress session to
cut duties; charges that America
had started an international tariff
war; accusations that the United
States had discriminated against
Argentina-and in the face of per-
sistent reports of impending rises
of Canada's tariffs.
Denies Decline of .Export.
The assistant secretary vigorously
denounced th o s e who advocate
American retirement from the for-
eign field, a n d suggested "We
f might decorate these noble-hearted
altruists with the grand order of
the yellow streak."N
He denied United States exports
had declined more than is normal
in a depression, citing 18 per cent-
as representing the fall in exports
both in 1930 and 1921, the country's
last depression.
Earlier today Ambassador Man-
uel E. Malbran of Argentina, had
courteously suggested his country
might be forced to embark on a
policy of high tariffs to build inter-
nally, as a result of America's bar-
riers to its exports. He said Ameri-
ca had discriminated against Ar-
gentine products.
Montague,.Kemmerer Speak.
Gilbert " . 'Montaue, New York
lawyer, after praising the Webb-
Pornerene act, which permits cer-
t a i n co-operative efforts among
export traders, urged that similar
legislation be enacted to permit in-
ternal co-operation.
Dr. Edwin Kemmerer, Princeton
university economist, and financial
advisor to 20 countries, in gen-
eral analysis of the Latin-Ameri-
can situation, emphasized that it
is important to bear in mind "that
for a number of years preceding the
p r e s e n t crisis, Latin-American
countries borrowed very heavily, in
American markets," and that 'the
money "was spent easily in many
cases and very wastefully."
"In 19 representative countries
all over the world, comprising most{
of our leadirg customers," he said,
"our share in their import totals
last year was almost exactly 29 per
cent. Our proportion in the trade.
of the same markets during 1924-
1927 averaged 20.7 per cent. Pre-
liminary figures for 1931 show al-
most exactly the same trend as
that indicated for 1930."

American exports to Argentina in
1929 represented more than 40 per
cent of our total South American
exports, the ambassador said, and
the exports of the first three
months of 1931 have decreased
about 60 per cent from 1930, which
in turn was 39 per cent under 1929.
Don Manuel called the United
States tariff prohibitive rather than
protective, citing that in the case
of linseed the tariff had been
changed upward 20 times-and that
nevertheless the United States pro-
duces less linseed today than she
did in 1901 when the tariff was
one-third as high.,
The ambassador said the presi-
dent, working under the "flexible
clause," could change rates when
so advised by the tariff commission,
adding that "the truth is that Ar-
gentine petitions to the commis-
sion have not met with the same
good fortune In regard to celerity
of procedure as petitions regarding
items coming from other countries.

Diesel Motored Plane Returns
Non-refueling Record
to America. .
May 28. - (AP) - Walter Lees and
Frederic Brossy, Detroit aviators,
today made good their third at-
tempt to bring back to America the
world's non-refueling flight record.
Flying a Diesel motored mono-
plane, they attained a new official
record of 76 hours and 23 minutes
at 11:10 a. m., but did not land,
preferring to stay aloft as long as
their fuel held out. At 6:47 p. m.,
they had passed 84 hours contin-
uous flight and weregoing strong.
The new record will supplant the
mark of 75 hours, 23 minutes set

Had Given False Figures
The paper said the superintend-
ent of the assembling department
had been discharged because he
gave out false production figures.
He claimed 438 machines w e r e
ready for shipment, whereas inves-
tgation showed there were only 20.
On May 25, for example, investi-
gators at the plant found not a
single mowing machine or binder
had been turned out, though the
program called for 100 mowers and
110 binders. There has also been a
serious drop in the production of
other machines.
Some of the trouble is attributed
to sabotnage, but it is generally ad-
mitted that unskilled workers are
to blame. Individual parts of ma-
chines can be manufactured with-
out much trouble, but most Russian
workers show their lack of experi.-
ence and training when it comes to

is generally considered the inter-

Moscow papers also assert that
production in various other plants
and factories is lagging, and point
especially to the failure of the
transportation system to fulfill its
program for the latter part of 1930
and the first quarter of 1931. Trans-
portation authorities blame the fac-
tories for failure to supply mater-
ials, while the factories blame the
railways for failing to bring them
fuel and other necessities.
taIn connection with the transpor-
tation difficulties, the superintend-
ent of the Red October metallurgi-
cal plant, at Stalingrad, is charged
with failure to carry out urgent
orders for the railways. He will, be;
tried soon by the Transport Court
in Moscow.-

Shirru Condemned by Mussolini
to Be Shot for Attempt
at Assassination.
ROME, May 28. -(IP)-Michele'
Schirru, naturalized American citi-
zen, was convicted today of plotting
the assassination of Premier Mus-
solini- and sentenced to death by
shooting in the back.
Schirru, who was tried before a'
special tribunal for the defense of
the state, maintained an attitude of
bravado until the trial was nearly
ended. He broke down, however,
during the final summation of the
prosecutor, who described him as
"a man without morals." At this
point Schirru bowed his head and
began to weep.
The defense attorney concluded
his pleas by addressing the judges,
"Your.sentence will be heard by the
world, let it therefore be merciful."
Schirru was charged on seven,
counts, including the possession of
bombs, the wounding of three de-
tectives and membership in an an-
archist party. He is the first Amer-
icani to be prosecuted for such an
offense in Italy's highestcourt.
Police said that Schirru, 32 years
old and a former resident of New
York, had confessed to coming to
Rome early this year with the in-
tention of killing Mussolini. He was
arrested in February after a gun
battle with police and explosives
were said to, have been found in
his room.

Mussolini intervened today to pre-,

controversy between Fascist zealots
and Catholic organizations, it was
understood on excellent authority.
From sources close to the govern-
ment it was learned the Duce had
come to the conclusion that viol-
ence of the young Fascists against
members of the Catholic Action or-
ganization and property of Catho-
lic groups had gone too far. This
was especially true of the disorders
of last night, when a portrait of
Pope Pius XI was trampled on the
pavement and Catholic papers and
books were burned in a Fascist at-
tack upon a Catholic publishing

The real test, however, came
