'We Have Contributed

BERLIN, May 22 -(A)- While en-
thusiastic Nazis acclaimed the peace
gestures in Reichsfuehrer Adolf Hit-
ler's Reichstag address, some skepti-
cal foreign diplomats saw in it the
promise of "an unprecedented re-
armament race."
Germans openly found no conflict
between Hitler's declaration to the
Reichstag that the country "needs
and wills peace" and the promulga-
tion a few hours later of a conscrip-
tion program making possible the
largest peace-time army in the na-
tion's history.
In diplomatic and other circles,
however, the opinion was heard that
"Hitler has offered nothing tangible
toward the international peace cause"
except an attempt to justify his
The motive of trying to allay for-
eign apprehension to gain sufficient
time for fulfilling his arms plans was
laid to Hitler by some.
Points Of Address
Among the features of the address
regarded as unusual were:
Its rejection of the idea of national
assimilation in the face of continual
harping by the Nazi-controlled press
on the fact that thousands of Ger-
mans lived beyond the borders of the
Its opposition to pacts of mutual as-
Its obvious attempt to placate Italy,
France and Austria, while bristling at
Its expression of interest in preser-
vation of the Locarno treaty.
Soon after Hitler completed his
speech in the Kroll opera house - it
required two hours and fourteen min-
utes - the government passed a law
compelling all German males between
the ages of 18 and 45 to serve one
year in the army.
Names Commander
The decree named the Reichsfueh-
rer as the supreme commander of
the armed forces. The minister of
war is in charge of the army, subject
to Hitler's orders. Gen. Werner von
Blomberg, who will head the ministry,
hitherto has been known as minister
of defense.
The tone of Hitler's address and of
the closing remarks of Gen. Hermann
Wilhelm Goerin, minister of aviation,
was that "we have made a real con-
tribution to world peace now it is up
to the rest of the world to follow our
Expressions of Germany's interest
in peace frequently punctuated the
speech. Der Fuehrer insisted the
Reich was compelled to rearm be-
cause of the militaristic policies of
other European powers.
Expect European
Peace Conference
LONDON, May 22. -(I)- A call for
a new European security and disarm-
ament conference was regarded in
political circles today as the logical
answer to Adolf Hitler's conciliatory
gestures in his foreign policy address.
The press generally marshaled
opinion in favor of swift, decisive
peace measures. It urged that Hitler's
offer to participate in an air Locarno
pact, agree to naval limitation and
bind Germany against aggression be
snapped up immediately.
While Hitler presented no specific
plan, his reiteration of previous dis-
armament and security statements
and the enunciation of new policies,
particularly his willingness to acept
a naval strength inferior to Great
Britain's, were highly praised in some
political quarters and newspapers.

Measure Would Give Five,
Departments Power Of
Licensing Arms
WASHINGTON, May 22.-P) -
Legislation which would set up a cab-
inet committee to license munitions
exports has been placed in the hands
of .a Senate leader by President
The measure, handed by the Pres-
ident to Key Pittman (Dem., Nev.),
chairman of the Senate Foreign Rela-
tions Committee, would give licensing
powers to the Secretaries of State,
Navy, War and Commerce. State De-
partment officials are reported to have
drawn the proposal.
Senator Gerald P. Nye (Rep., N.D.),
leader of the Senate's long investiga-
tion into the munitions business, is
said to regard the outlook for enact-
ment of drastic legislation against'
war profits as much improved by the
President's action on the licensing

munitions committee, plan to con-

They have been trying to force ac-
ceptance of amendments which would
curb profits to shipbuilders and strike
out the financing of 24 new war-
Their effort was side-tracked tem-

of Senator Huey P. Long (Dem., La.),
against President Roosevelt's appear-
ance before Congress to read his
bonus veto message. They stood aside

a "five-year armament holiday."

Ohio Governor To

COLUMBUS, O, May 22. - (P' -
Gov. Martin L. Davey announced to-
day that he had withdrawn a war-
rant charging Harry L. Hopkins, Fed-

The governor gave the following
reasons for withdrawing the warrant,
which was filed March 18 at Newark,
"All the objectives which were
sought have been accomplished, and
no good purpose can be served by
carrying on a guerilla warfare.
"So -far as I am concerned, there

Business Men's
Meeting Favors
NRA Extension
Congressmen Serve Notice
That They Will Combat
Richberg Bill
WASHINGTON, May 22. - (k')-- A
rally of business men who favor ex-
tending NRA for two years shared
interest today with a difference of
opinion between Donald R. Richberg
and several senators.
Richberg, the chairman of the Na-
tional Recovery Board, appealed
Tuesday to the House Ways and
Means Committee for a provision
empowering the President to impose
limited codes on recalcitrant indus-
In the Senate, which3 has passed l
a resolution to clip the Blue Eagle's
wings and extend its life only until
next April, several legislators have
served notice they would fight the
Richberg proposal.
The meeting of business men was
called under the auspices of the In-
dustry and Business Committee for
NRA Extension to urge the two-year
plan as the alternative to "business
The business men met in Consti-
tution Hall, and later planned to
visit their congressmen.
Leaders of the meeting maintained
it had no partisan political' complex-
ion, and vigorously denied assertions
by congressional critics that NRA of-
ficials had inspired it. NRA men
from the first have been careful to
avoid any appearance of sponsoring
the session.
Ward Cheney, organizer and chair-
man, opened the conference with this
statement: "NRA has made life pos-
sible for literally thousands of small
business men and industrialists, and
its extension for two years is abso-
lutely necessary unless we are again
to be exposed to the grim danger of
business death."
Committee officials said men from
more than 150 industries were at-
Among the delegations listed were
groups from the bituminous coal op-
erators, the construction industry,
druggists, bakers, and the clothing
trades, with some men from steel
and other heavy industries.
A special train from New York
brought some 400 from cities in the
Northeast, leaders said, and others
came by plane and train.
