A touch of nerves bothered Mary Martin when she saw her mother
(left) in the first row, the slim star of a Broadway comedy, "Leave It to
Me," admitted after a recent performance. Mrs. Preston Martin came
from Weatherford, Tex., to see the show for the first time and watch
Mary do a partial strip tease while singing her hit song "My Heart
Belongs to Daddy."

should be given discretion to name an
aggressor and refuse to sell him war
supplies, the question why it was im-
portant that all belligerents should be
treated alike was raised. Senator'
Green (Dem.-R.I.) an unfailing Ad-
ministration supporter, pointed out
that Baruch's system of "treating all
alike" meant the opposite of that.
"I admit that there's an inequality,"
Baruch replied. "It would favor Japan
ih one ocean and Great Britain and
France in another."
"Wouldn't it be the same inequality
as if we didn't have any legislation?"
"Yes, it would keep the same in-
equality that now exists." i
"Why is it so important then to
treat everyone alike?"
":Because, if we don't we will be en-
gaged in an economic war.".
May Lead To War
On that subject, Baruch, noting
what he called suggestions" that
American economic pressure should
be applied to prevent European ag-
gressors from starting a war, had this
to say:
"If our economic war fails, we will
be in military war. I am not sure that
even with the utmost economic pres-
sure we could prevent European war
if it were determined upon by the
"I also question the theory that we
must take part in any European war.
I am no military expert, but I do hap-
pen to have some experience with
many nations in the World War. (He
was an intimate confidant of Presi-
dent Wilson). I venture to believe that
this country or this hemisphere can
escape involvement in a European
conflict and we can do this without
burying our head in the sand; we can
still raise our voice against faithless-
ness and brutality.
U.S. Still Formidable
"You will hear it said that if we
do not go in of our own volition our
turn will come next. It is true that
our barriers of sea water have been
narrowed by science and invention.
But they are still formidable. It is
incredible that without almost com-
plete domination of the water and sky
of both the Atlantic and Pacific
Oceans, a military attack in truly
threatening force could be launched
against this hemisphere from either
Asia or Europe.
"Who has the wisdom, or the bold-
ness, to advocate involvement of our
country in any overseas war on the
assumption that this apparent axiom
is no longer true-and on what known
Eact or theory? If we believe we can
defend this hemisphere then the whole
argument for now waging economic
war weakens.
"Our defeat here certainly can
never happen if we maintain a de-
fense adequate to prevent it."

independence, previously had a mu-
tual defense pact with Poland).
Beck conferred unexpectedly to-
night with Foreign Secretary Vis-
count Halifax for more than an hour.
The Rumanian Minister to London,
Viorel Tilea, returned from Bucha-
rest where he had talks with King
"Rumania is seeking a policy ofj
peace," Tilea said, "but at the same
time the country is determined to
defend its independence and its fron-
tiers: if necessary, with arms."
Beck visited the British aircraft
carrier Ark Royal where, Tuesday
night, Earl Stanhope, First Lord of
the Admiralty, gave Europe the jit-.
ters by announcing that anti-air-
craft guns abroad British warships
had been ordered manned.
Lord Stanhope's speech again was
made an issue in Parliament when
Chamberlain was questioned on a
"D"-for danger-notice issued later
to newspapers to suppress the speech.
Although the new British-Polish
agreement unqualifiedly provides for
mutual military assistance in case of
danger to either nation, it leaves Po-
land free to negotiate with Soviet'
Russia or with Germany.
"It is understood that the agree-
ments . . . should not preclude either
government from making arrange-
ments with other countries in the
general interests of the consolida-
tion of peace," Chamberlain said.
Asked by Geoffrey Mander, oppo-
sition liberal, whether "the Home
Secretary will continue to watch
closely the activities" of German sec-
ret police and other Nazi organiza-
tions in England and "take what ac-
tion may be necessary from time to
(time?" Sir Samuel answered:.
"Yes, certainly."
He assured another member that
no Nazi agent enjoyed diplomatic
immunity in England.

Solicitor-General Pledges
Federal Action Io Free
Interstate Commerce
CHICAGO, April 6.-(JP)-Solicitor
General Robert H. Jackson informed
representatives of 44 states and four
territories tonight that the Federal
government would support efforts to
remove state trade barriers.
In an address prepared for de-
livery at a conference called to con-
sider means of restoring free trade
among the states he promised:
"The Federal authority must and
will uphold the constitutional man-
date that commerce among these
United States be free. We will con-
tinue to take direct action in the
courts where necessary, wherever
and whenever a predatory parochial-
ism or a local parasitic interest tries
to flourish by obstructing the gen-
eral commerce among the states."

Japs Inflict Damage
On Railroad Center
SHANGHAI, April 6.-(P)--Be-
lated reports indicated tonight that
Japanese air attacks had inflicted
heavy damage on Chengchow, impor-
tant Chinese-held Lunghai Railroad
center in Honan province.
The attacks typified the continu-
ing aerial warfare of the Japanese,
apparently checked in their westward
offensive toward Changsha, capital
of Hunan province.
TheChengchow raids, according to
these reports, occurred March 27, 29
and 31, causing 800 casualties among
Chinese troops and undisclosed non-
combatant casualties.
Chinese reported 200 casualties
from raids today which Japanese
said were aimed at military estab-
lishments, particularly along the
Chekiang-Kiangsi railway and the,
Kan River. An attack on. Changsha
itself, Chinese said, caused 40 deaths.

Rubber Glass

Roosevelt Wires Praise
Of Safety Discovery
To Scientific Institute
A new high-test laminated safety
glass, known as "rubber-glass" will
be available for 75 per cent of the
1939 automobiles at no additional
cost, manufacturers recently an-
The new "rubber glass" received
considerable praise from the Franklin
Institute. President Roosevelt, in a
telegram to a gathering of scientists
and industrial leaders at its introduc-
tion in Philadelphia, added his praise
to that of the Insiitute:
Roosevelt Adds Praise
"It is especially fitting that we rec-
ognize every achievement in which
the practical application of scientific
principles adds to human happiness
through the promotion of traffic
safety. Such an occasion is doubly
significant because it is indicative of
the great benefits to mankind which
result from a social-mindedness on
the part of industry. It seems to me
especially appropriate that the meet-
ing is being held at the Franklin In-
stitute which perpetuates the memory
of a great American who devoted most
of his life to the service of his coun-
Offers Greater Flexibility
The new product, "rubber glass,"
is similar to present day safety glass,
but substitutes a highly improved
plastic filler for that now in usd. This
new filler is much more flexible, does
not become brittle in cold weather,
and is not discolored by the sun's
rays. The composite glass made with
this material is entirely shatter-
proof. It is strong enough to stop
a half-pound steel ball travelling 40
miles per hour, yet it is flexible
enough to be rolled up after it has
been broken.
