Turk Assembly To Choose

Who Modernized Nation

Watch For Choice
ISTANBUL, Nov. 10-(P)-Kamal
Ataturk who built and ruled modern
Turkey with a clenched fist died to-
day at the age of 58.
There were unconfirmed reports
that the Turkish President whom
Parliament named Ataturk-"Father
of the Turks"-had left a political
testament to guide his successor in
his own rigid doctrine of Westerniza-
tion and nationalism. /
No one expected Turkey's new lead-
ership to turn in the immediate future
from the domestic foreign balance
which Ataturk achieved for this na-
tion, strategicallly situated between
the East and the West.
Borrowed Before Illness
Before Ataturk became gravely ill
in mid-October he was borrowing
money for Turkey with little discrim-
ination from both Britain and Ger-
many, although his early struggle for
power was tinged' with bitter hatred
For 'the influence of both.
The British and German foreign
offices were known to have keen in-
terest in his successor and the future
course of Turkey.
The President of the National As-!
sembly,'Abdul Halik Renda, assumed
the interim Presidency upon the
passing of the ashen-faced "gray
wolf." A Governmnt ,proclamation
announced convocation of the assem-
bly to elect a new Chief Executive.
probably tomuorrow.
Inou Likely Successor
General Ismet Inonu, known as the
"military bookkeeper," premier for 13
of the 15 years that Ataturk headed
the state, was the most likely choice.
A parliamentary group of the major-
ity party decided to support Inonu,)
apparently assuring his election.
Ataturk once said of Inonu, "he is
my conscience-he is always on the
alert and finds out what is wrong
and criticizes me."
Day and night eight physicians
had helped Ataturk fight his illness
in the great alabaster palace of Dolma
Bagtche on the Bosphorus from which
Ataturk had ejected the last Sultan
of the old Ottoman Empire.
But the rugged spirit of this man
who had always lived as he liked-

'Good Earth' Gains Prize
For American; Physics
Honors Go To Italian
STOCKHOLM, Nov. 10-(P)-An
American, Pearl Buck, author of "The
Good Earth," and an Italian, Enrico
Fermi of the University of Rome,
discoverer of a new element, today
won the 1938 Nobel Prizes for Litera-
ture and Physics-$37,975 each.
The literature award went to Mrs.
Buck for the novel on Chinese life,
one of her several novels dealing with
the China she camp to know as the
daughter of missionary parents.
Observers commented on the fact
that "The Good Earth" was published
in 1931 and Nobel Prizes usually are
restricted to works published in the
year preceding each award. "The ,
Good Earth" also won the 1932 Pulit-
zer Prize.i
Mrs. Buck, who now lives at Greati
Neck, N,. Y., was born in 1892 at
Hillsboro, W. Va. She is the third,
American to win the Nobel Literature
award. The others were Sinclair Lew-
is in 1930 and Eugene O'Neill in 1936.
It was announced that Fermi won
the Physics Prize "as a reward for
his discovery of new elementary radio-
active substances engendered by ir-
radication of neutrons" and for other
research on reactions created by neu-

New Species Of Snake
Named After Ruthven
A new species of garter snake
"thamnophis ruthveni," has been
named in honor of President Ruth-
This was revealed in one of seven
research papers published recently by
the Museum of Zoology. Norman
Hartweg and James A. Oliver, who
wrote this particular paper on three
newly-discovered snakes from the
Pacific slope, said this honor was
bestowed on President Ruthven be-
cause of his contributions to the
knowledge of systematics.

specimens of a dwarf race of spotted
skunk to reach an American museum.

FDR's Conf erenees Bring
Predictions Of A New
National Economic Plan
NEW YORK, Nov. 10-0P-Stimu-
lation of private industry-particu-
larly heavy goods-coupled with
major reductions in relief spending,
is expected by some leading figures
in the financial and industrial com-
munity as a sequel to the election.
Private and extended cnversations
during the past six weeks between
President Roosevelt and some busi-
ness leaders have led these Wall Street
sources to forecast a new phase of
national economic policy for the final
half of the President's second term.
Fully recognizing that character-
istics of the new economic plan may
be altered before its delivery to the
nation, they said they discerned some
of its principal features to be:
1. A long range heavy industry
recovery program under the guise of
national defense, which Wall Street-
ers have urged as likely to be more
enduring that the short-lived recovery
cycles depending on WPA and other{
efforts to stimulate consumers goods.
2. A drive to get 80 per cent or

GOP Demands
Roosevelt Veer
Toward Right
Proninent New Dealers
Hold 'Liberal Policies'
Were Not Repudiated
IRepublican Gains
May Stall Congress
Prominent Republicans, flushed by
their Party's victories at the polls,
appeared last night to be getting
ready to serve a virtual ultimatum
on President Roosevelt in some such
words as these:
"Veer to the right, or face two
years of stalemate in Congress!"
They expressed confidene that,
combined with Democrats critical of
many Roosevelt policies, they could
block the President if he insisted on
following a "leftward" course.
On the other hand, prominent New
Dealers were declaring that the elec-
tion was not a repudiation of Presi-
dent Roosevelt's "liberal policies."
Secretary of the Interior Ickes spoke
of the possibility of Mr. Roosevelt be-
ing drafted for a third term drive
in the interests of continuing the
New Deal.
Meanwhile returns from Tuesday's
balloting were all but complete. They
showed that 81 Republican votes had
been added to that Party's roster in
the House, and eight in the Senate.
One House election remained in
doubt. ,
In the Indiana Senatorial race,
which was so close that it was decided
only'yesterday afternoon, Sen. Fred-
erick Van Nuys, Democrat, finally
beat Raymond E. Willis. In Iowa,
scene of another nip-and-tuck con-
test, Sen. Guy M. Gillette, Democrat,
was the apparent winner over former
Sen. Lester Dickinson, Republican.
In all, but without counting the
uncertain elections, the Republican
Party held 170 places in the House,
out of a total membership of 435
and 23 seats in the Senate of a total
of 96. Thus a coalition of 48 anti-
New Deal Democrats with the Repub-
lican membership would give such
forces a majority. On some past
issues. many more than 48 Democrats
have deserted the Administration. In
the Senate, the Republicans would
have to pick up 26 Democratic votes
to assume command.g

WASHINGTON, Nov. 10--(4)-The
newest compilations of Tuesday's
election results only serve to empha-

the magnitude of the reverses suf-

The turnovers of offices fell short of
a political revolution only because
of the stupendous Congressional
majorities the Democrats accumulat-

any other election year back to dimly

That opposition found its leader-

lay among southern Democrats. It
was first disclosed in the Senate fightI
over the Roosevelt proposal to re-

clear the way for the far-reaching
program of permanent economic and
social changes he planned. It was as)
sharply emphasized in the intra-party
