Union Agrees Not

BUFFALO, N.Y., July 24.-()-
Two thousand striking meat packers
and wholesale grocery truck drivers
reached a 24-hour truce with their
employers tonight after a four-day
setrike but the agreement provided
no alleviation of a food shortage
caused by a tieup of delivery trucks.
The Rev. Dr. John P. Boland,
chairman of the State Labor Board,
said the employers agreed not to
move meats, butter, eggs and staple
groceries for 24 hours and union
leaders promised abandonment of
picketing and other steps taken to
prevent food deliveries-
Both groups consented to meet to-
morrow with Dr. Boland and media-
tion assistants to discuss closed shop
clauses in proposed contracts.,
Dr. Boland, Buffalo priest who
started settling labor disputes as a
hobby, returned to his home here
and drew the contenders into a quick
conciliation conference as a special
state mediator. after wholesalers ap-

The priest, who recently gave up
most of his parish duties to become
chairman of the newly created State
Labor Board, also obtained an agree-
ment from union leaders that they
would not . call further strikes to

TOKYO, July 24. -(P)-Japan's

The plane, just completed at theC

army leaders tonight declared theC
North China situation, which for two
weeks has kept China and Japan on b
the verge of war, again had become is
ominous because Chinese troops were
not leaving this area rapidly enough.
They charged that units the Chin-
ese had undertaken to withdraw ac-
tually were digging in for resistance. a
Peaceful settlement of the crisis, r
which yesterday appeared in process
of being carried out, had struck a
dangerous snag.w
Twice in the past 24 hours, said C
Domei, (the Japanese News Agency,)
the Japanese command had warned b
Chinese leaders they must speed upN
withdrawal of the "anti-Japanese" p
37th division.
Japanese troops began searching o
passengers on trains of the Peiping- C
Hankow Railway, on which normal
sevice had just been restored after p
two weeks. As a result service again
was suspended.
The attitude of North China lead-
ers toward Japan, hitherto concilia-
tory, had stiffened, the Japanese de- A
cared, and this coincided with the
arrival here of General Hsiung Ping, n
vice-chief of the Chinese General h
Staff. I
General Hsiung came by airplanei
from Nanking on orders from Gen-
eralissimo-Premier Chiang Kai-Shek.'
Japanese said they believed he had
induced General Cheh-Yuan, chair-
man of the Hopeh-Chahar political
council and commander of the 29th
Chinese army, to alter his recently
yielding attitude.

McCormack Passes
Lie Detector Test
LANSING, July 24.-(P)-Detective
Lieutenant Harold Mulbar said that
relimniary lie detector tests "gave
no indication" that James McCor-
mack either started the New Balti-
more roadhouse fire or killed Mary
Jane Mohan, 16-year-old victim of
the blaze.
McCormack was closeted with
Mulbar and St Clair County offi-
cials for nearly three hours, from 1
to 3:45 p.m.
There were four tests.
On the blunt questions, "Did you
kill the girl?" and "Did you strike
the girl?" there was no deviation of
the line representing McCormack's
reaction on the graph, Mulbar said.
After the long session the question-
ers and the questioned left the test
room, all visibly affected by the
closeness of the room, witnesses said.

11 Duce's Paper
Terms Post-War1
Debts 'Fictions'
MILAN, Italy, July 24.-()-Pre-
mier Benito Mussolini's own news-
paper, Il Popolo D'Italia, today listed
numerous international "fictions" it
said some day would be "overwhelmed
by reality."
Among them was the contention of
the United States that World War
debts still are collectable.
Persons close to the government in
Rome interpreted "reality"-which
the newspaper went on to say always
had "had a single brave name for
which there was no substitute"-to
mean war, with its general upheaval.
They declared there was no doubt
the vigorous style of the newspaper's
750-word editorial on "post-war make
believe" was that of Il Duce himself.
Informed persons saw a slap at the
democratic powers in this statement:
"Policies which ought to be real-
istic and therefore face the problems
as they exist become the play of
irreality and sophism, sometimes dis-
guised in the motheaten garments of
immrta~l nin les"

WASHINGTON, July 24.-()-A
rush for adjournment seemed today
;o threaten 'the five-point program
hat President Roosevelt has laid out
for this -session of Congress.
Senator Barkley (Dem., Ky.), fresh-
y crowned with the laurels of Dem-
ocratic leadership, traveled down the
Potomac with President Roosevelt to
figure out with him what might be
salvagedufrom the presidential pro-
gram. His return to Washington will
bring new thoughts on the subject.
As it stood, however, the clamor
was rising for adjournment as soon
as the greatly modified court reform
bill has been passed. Republicans
spoke strongly for such a step. Many
important Democrats felt likewise.
They spoke of this bill, or that one,
being put over to the next session.
All Anxious To Leave
Representative Woodrum of Vir-
ginia, frequently spoken of as a man
who talks for the Administration in
the House, said that any effort to jam
through a heavy program now would
meet wide opposition; that if a broad
group of measures were insisted upon
"Congress will still be here when the
frost is on the pumpkin."
The President has listed as "desir-
able" for this session bills to fix
minimum wages and maximum hours,
to reorganize government depart-
ments, to provide low cost housing,
to plug tax loopholes, and to set up
a new farm plan.
Wage And Hour Legislation
Senator Barkley has said that wage
and hour legislation would pass the
Senate by late Tuesday. The House
Labor Committee is still trying to put
such a measure into shape for action
on that side of the capitol. Some
leaders in the House say they would
like to see it go over until next ses-
sion to permit further study.
Government reorganization has not
been heard of in some time. The
joint committee set up to study the
presidential proposal will meet M.on-
day or Tuesday to choose a new chair-
man. That post was vacated by the
death of Senator Robinson of Ar-
kansas. Senator Byrnes of South Car-
olina is spoken of as a likely choice.
Not too much enthusiasm has been
shown on the proposal from the be-
