Danger Passing,
England Claims
BERLIN, Aug. 10. -(P)- Rudolf
Hess, Adolf Hitler's deputy for Nazi
party affairs, declared tonight that
the German nation was convinced
that "the moment now is at hand
to break England's power even to
the. ruination of the entire Empire."
Speaking in a Vienna concert hall
at a ceremony marking the success-
ion of a new Nazi district leader,
Hess said Germany would "fight for
the peace which the ruling English
plutocratic clique derisively rejected
when the Fuehrer once more offered
to England after England's aides and
accomplices were defeated.
"Never in history was a more gen-
erous offer made to a land which is
in the worst situation since its be-
'Boundless' Animosity
The animosity of the German peo-
ple toward England, he said, was
"All of us," Hess went on, 'know
how widespread among our people
is the conviction that there can be
no peace in the world until England
definitely has been struck down.
"Now when all means of power of
Germany and her ally Italy can be
concentrated on England, the nation
is saying that the moment is at hand
finally to make a clean sweep-to
break England's power even to the
ruination of the entire Empire."
Says Axis Superior
Germany and Italy were so super-
ior to Britain, he asserted, that
"there can't be the slightest doubt"
about the outcome of the battle.
England daily had been experiencing
"tiny foretastes" of what is in store
foil her, he added, "and care has been
taken that all doubts will be removed
in England whether the Fuehrer's
offer (to hialt the war) sprang from
British Military
Is Optimistic
LONDON, Aug. 10.-(A')-Although
Nazi warplanes struck with renewed
ferocity today, British military men
expressed belief that the threat of
a German blitzkrieg invasion is
dwindling day by day toward a van-
ishing pointnear the end of Septem-
ber. -
Mass attacks by power-diving Ger-
man bombers, spraying machine-gun
fire and whistling bombs on British
coasts and shipping, caused unstated1
damage and casualities. The Birtish,
however, expressed belief they were
primarily "terror" raids.
The British, too, kept up theirI
dogged air attacks on Germany andt
German-occupied territory.t
The Air Ministry announced:
Several fires started by three wavest
of British bombers at Guernsey air-I
drome in German-occupied channeli
islands; "heavy damage" on muni-
tions factories in Germany; hangars
and anti-aircraft batteries damaged
at German seaplane base near Brest,
France; oil tanks set afire at Flush-
ing, the Netherlands.
Italians Advance

CAIRO, Egypt., Aug. 10.-StrongI
Italian armored columns, harassed
almost continuously from the air,

the tempo of the desert war by fierce-k

The British-still apparently de-.

has done-were active mainly witht
their aviation.

Manufacturers Face
Patent Prosecution
NEW YORK, Aug. 10. -(/P)- In-

of the country engaged in produc-

dicted in informed legal quarters to-
day as Thurman Arnold, assistant
U.S. Attorney General, took over tem-
porary direction of a Federal grand
jury investigation into patents.
Lawyers for many large concerns,
however,shad been fully aware for
months of the Department of Justice's
investigation into the alleged use of
patents in restraint of trade.

or housemothers, all unwanted, ser-
viceable clothing when they leave
Ann Arbor. University trucks will
collect the clothing, which will be
delivered to the Committee, of which
Maxime Rainguet, French Consul in
Detroit, is honorary chairman. It
has not yet been decided whether
the clothing will be.sent to England
or France. The Committee empha-
sized that it is serviceable clothing,
not fancy- or decorative, which is
needed in Europe today.
Headquarters have been set up in
Lane Hall this week for students and
townspeople who wish to bring in
clothing themselves. Deadline for the
acceptance of this clothing has been
set at noon Saturday.
A similar drive will probably be
carried on in Ann Arbor in the fall
when the University is in regular
session, according to the Committee.
Nazis Blame
Britain For Famine
(By The Associated Press)
BERLIN, Aug. 10.-(P)-Nazis are
pressing a propaganda campaign de-
signed to place upon the British
blockade responsibility for any fam-
ine when winter howls down upon
this war-ravaged continent.
"Who in England has the right to
speak of the necessity on the part
of Hitler to supply relief to the peo-
ples of the countries he has occu-
pied?" asked a propaganda broad-
caster who uses the air name "okay".
"There's no necessity. There is no
obligation-either legal or moral."
The broadcast today was addressed
especially to the United States.
The broadcaster suggested that
Great Britain could avert 'a serious
food shortage" without aiding Ger-
many by loosening the European
Meanwhile the :German press, dis-
cussing harvest prospects, said Ger-
many herself was assured an adequate
winter food supply and that German
surveys of Balkan crops indicate that,
"while they are not record breakers,''
they will be more than sufficient to
feed the southeast.

French Trial
Will Decide
'War Blame'
Supreme Court To Study
Actions Of Ministers
And Former Premiers
RIOM, France, Aug. 10. -(/P)- Al-
most the whole. recent past of
France's national life-not merely the
quality of its military and political
leadership-will be examined before
the supreme court here in the forth-
coming "war blame" trials.
It was evident today, as accusation
piled upon accusation, that this ex-
traordinary prosecution by officials of
the new government of Philippe Pe-
tain would be much more than a
proceeding to lay direct responsibil-
ity for France's conflict with Ger-
many and her disastrous defeat.
It will push back through the years'
into the broad fields of diplomacy,
finance, social life, social experi-
ments and secret lodges.
Names of former premiers Edouard
Daladier, Paul Reynaud and Leon
Blum are constantly mentioned, along
with those of former Minister of Col-
onies Georges Mandel and Gustave
Maurice Gamelin, the deposed French
The case will, be a long as well as
historic one: the court is expected to
take formal charge shortly. The gov-
ernment then will present its com-
lpaint and secret investigations and
hearings will begin.
Only at the end of all this-which
will require weeks-will the open trial
be started.
The press already is spot-lighting
the trial by accusing old-school poli-
ticians of keeping alive a state of
dissatisfaction and refusing to co-
operate with the new regime. "Severe
punishment is suggested.

Montana Senator Claims
Popular Sentiment Is
Against Draft Measure
People For Draft,
Barkley Asserts
WASHINGTON, Aug. 10.-(P)-A
challenge to supporters of the Burke-
Wadsworth compulsory military
training bill to submit the question
of conscription to a referendum vote
of the people was voiced today by
Senator Wheeler, a leader of Senate
forces opposing the measure.
Contending that popular sentiment
definitely was against drafting young
men into the army, Wheeler said that
those who believed in the compulsory
method ought to be willing to test

the popularity of their views at the
polls in the November general elec-
"If the proponents of conscription
feel that it is necessary to have the
draft to save democracy, as they re-
peatedly have said, they ought to
be willing to submit the question to
the people because that would be the
democratic way to ascertain the pub-
lic viewpoint," Wheeler told reporters.
Wheeler's challenge came as pro-
ponents and opponents of the Burke-
Wadsworth measure prepared for re-
sumption in the Senate Monday of
debate which began yesterday with
a routine explanation of the bill by
Senator Sheppard and flared almost
immediately into a heated contro-
versy as to whether the United States
was likely to be attacked in the near
The Montana Senator's confident
statement that public sentiment was
opposed to conscription was quickly
disputed by Senator Barkley of Ken-
tucky, the Democratic leader, who
said he thought the weight of opin-
ion in favor of drafting men would
begin to be felt heavily as debate
On the other hand, Senator Nye,
an opponent of conscription, said he
thought the Senate debate would
build up so much popular opposition
to the draft that even if he and oth-
ers of like views were unsuccessful
in defeating the measure in the Sen-
ate, it would almost certainly be com-
promised in the House.
Barkley said he was opposed to
proposed compromises such as that
outlined in a substitute bill by Sen-
ator Maloney.
The Burke-Wadsworth measure
would call for the registration of
about 12,000,000 men 21 to 30 years
old, and part of this number would
be drafted by a selective system. Ma-
loney's bill, however, would delay
conscription until after a period of
voluntary enlistments had elapsed.
