Cordell Hull Urges Three=Year Extension of Reciprocal Trau

de Plan

G0P Allacks Stir Anger
Of Secretary of State
1ull States That Reciprocal Trade Is Basis
F'or Essential International Cooperation

By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON, April 12.-Secre-!
tary Hull motored up Capitol Hill to-
day to urge continuance of the Re-
ciprocal Trade Treaties Program and
found himself the brunt of a Repub-
lican attack which stirred his Ten-
nessee anger to the point where he
acknowledged himself "fed up."
The 73-year old secretary presented
a 3,000-word statement to the House
Ways and Means Committee. He said
any curtailment or repudiation of
the trade treaties would be a clear
indication to other countries that the
United States does not intend to bear
its full share of responsibility in
peacetime.
Then Republican members of the
committee started questioning Hull.
Rep. Gearhart of California declared
the trade agreements are an economic
failure and have won this country the
nickname of "Uncle Sap." For an
hour, Gearhart tried to draw from the
secretary an assent to the Californ-
ian's contention that other nations
have taken undue advantage of the
trade plan, first authorized in 1934
and close to Hull's heart.
Hull, urging a three-year extension
of the trade plan, said it "is the cen-
tral and indispensable point in any
feasible program of international co-
operation."
"Theionly alternative," he said, "Is
for nations to travel the same ex-
tremely narrow road that was travel-
ed so disastrously during the years
folowing the last war.
"The many peoples who look to-
ward this country with hope are
watching our action on this act with
profound interest. Repudiation of the
Trade-Agreements Program, or the
curtailment of it in scope or time by
amendment, would be taken as a
clear indication that this country
which, in war, is bearing its full share
of responsibility, will not do so in
peace."
Hull's mention of possible curtail-
ment of the program "in time" was
an apparent reference to sentiment,
expressed in some congressional quar-
ters, to renew the President's author-
ity to negotiate such mutual treaties
--but for less than the three-year
period requested by the Administra-
tion. Under the program the President
is permitted to lower tariffs in re-
turn for concessions from other
countries.

destroyed at least 84 enemy planes
of all types in the past two days.

With the captives of the last few
days, the Eighth Army now has taken
more than 100,000 prisonsers since El
Alamein, and the enemy has left a
trail of thousands of graves over a
2,000-mile stretch from the flat sands
of Egypt to the grassy hills of Tunisia.
About 80 per cent of the prisoners are
Italians, left behind by the withdraw-
ing Germans. The Americans, French,
and British First Army have seized
several thousand more prisoners,
many of them Germans.
Rommel's Army is but a battered
skeleton of the powerful fighting ma-
chine that he sent into the Nile Val-
ley last summer, but it is still resist-
ing.
Now the Axis grasp on Africa is
reduced to a small corner of north-
east Tunisia, and the question is
only how long it will take to extermi-
nate those last remaining enemy
troops.

Wit, satire and comedy compose
the theme of the French play. "Le
Monde ou' P'on s'ennuie" by Edouard
Pailleron, to be given at 8:15 p.m.
April 27, in the Lydia Mendelssohn
Theatre.
Wit is shown in the remarks of La
Duchess, a shrewd old woman of
the world, played by Connie Taber,
'44. She understands clearly and
ridicules the motives of the three
aspirants to the government posi-
tion and the vain coquetries of the
women who surround the young phi-
losopher, Bellac, played by Robert
Berahya.
Satire is apparent throughout the
whole play. The characters, philos-
ophers, pedants, poets, politicians,,
aristocrats, the motives which dom-

Buddy Brennan's foxhole fugitives get into the groove with Buddy
at the ivories when their truck got jammed up in ruts and mud on
Guadalcanal. The band gives with a swing interlude while trekking
from camp to camp on the battle-scarred South Pacific island.
Good American Jazz mixed with a little swing drowns Aut the whine
of plunging planes, and relieves the strain of Yankees fighting far from
domestic dance bands and ballrooms.

Inate them and their comments all
show the nature of the fashionable
French salons and ridicule them.
Roger, the "savant", played by War-
ner Heineman, '43BAd., Bellac, the
philosopher and opportunist, the su-
perficially dignified Miss Watson,
played by Hazel Batchelar. '46, and
the misbehaved Suzanne, played by
Shirley Robin, '45, who lends gaiety
to the play, are all examples of the
affected attitude of the characters
Pailleron has depicted.
Humor is evident in the attempts
of Frank Maclear, '43E, as the Sous-
Pr6fet Paul Raymond, to teach his
wife, Jeanne, played by Helene Sieg,
'44, to be proper and serious before
the other members of the salon.
