The German foreign office mouth-

Just Missed Diploma;
Civil War Hero Dead
A 98-year-old man who quit the
University three weeks before his
graduation' in 1861 to enlist with the
Union forces, died yesterday at his
Chicago home.
The man, Major George Mason, re-
ceived belated acknowledgement of
his work here when the University
granted him a Bachelor of Arts de-
gree, in 1933.
It was in April, 1861, when Mason
joined the Union forces. During the
Civil War he served in the 18th 1111-
nois Infantry and, during the Atlanta
campaign, in the 2nd division of the
16th Army Corps. After the war he
'located in Chicago, establishing a
foundry business.

Germany and 'Italy, the foreign

as 'honest brokers' to help end this
conflict (between Czechoslovakia and
Hungary) and thereby lay the
groundwork for a good neighbor re-

The Trianon Treaty, said the or-

correcting these injustices and re-

Arms Preparedness And

But Refuses to Arm

LONDON, Oct. 31.-(/P)-Prime
Minister Chamberlain put Sir John
Anderson, "the Iron Man of Bengal,"
into his rebuilt cabinet tonight to bul-
wark Great Britain's home defense
of nearly fifty million civilians.
On the eve of the reassembling of
Parliament, which was shocked by
the nation's unpreparedness in the
days of the September crisis,- the
Prime Minister reconstructed the
Government to assure vigorous lead-
ership for wide organization of Air
Raid precautions and related mea-

ply to put rearmament on a wartime
Such an extreme measure, Cham-
berlain was reported to believe, might
block his carefully laid plans to ap-
pease Reichsfuehrer Hitler and Pre-
mier Mussoilni and end all hope of a
four-power understanding on arms
restrictions. He was also understood
to fear the consequences of such a
move on normal industry and export
Lord Runciman may also aid in
strengthening the Ministry for co-
ordinatiori of defense now headed by
Sir Thomas Inskip. Runciman's dip-
lomatic skill and wide knowledge of
trade and commerce will be at Cham-
berlain's disposal.
For the present at least MacDonald
will carry the tremendous burden of
colonial and dominions affairs. Both
are vital portfolios because of the
Arab-Jew upheaval in Palestine and
the imminence of negotiations with
Germany over the return of her war-
lost colonies. The dominions post
had been vacant since the death of
Lord Stanley Oct. 16. '
The whole newcabinet line-up ap-
peared to have been cautiously ma-
neuvered by Chamberlain to further
his idea of a four-power arrangement
between the great European democra-
cies and the Nazi-Fascist nations built

"At no time is there anything which
could be called cross-examination.
Some of the yarns contain serious
accusations against public officials
and private citizens. These officials

Dies accused President Roosevelt,
the justice department and the WPA
of ignoring a congressional request
that his Committee be staffed with
stenographers, investigators and at-

ments. Moreover, he said, the secre-
tary of the Senate Civil Liberties

tors for the purpose of "sabotaging"
the investigation.

President, Anderson said, two other

ers who have covered the hearings.
Eleven thought the hearings "unfair,"
he said. Two thought them about as

In a jovial mood members of President Roosevelt's fact-finding board are shown at the White House as they
called to tell the President they saw no need for a 15- per cent wage out for railroad employes. The board
asked that carriers cancel notices of such a reduction. Left to right: Dean James M. Landis of the Harvard
law school, Chief Justice Walter P. Stacy of the North Carolina supreme court and Prof. Harry A. Millis of the
University of Chicago.
