USHA Warns
Of Quartering
Claims Housing Shortages
Imperil Defense Work;
Tank Bids Are Opened
At Rock Island, Illinois
Roosevelt To Ask
Taxes Tomorrow
WASHINGTON, July 9.--(PD)-
A warning that the defense program
was in danger of "bogging down" be-
cause of a shortage of housing ac-
commodations for industrial work-
ers was issued by a government
agency today, while the War De-
partment prepared to place orders
for 629 light tanks.
The United States Housing Author-'
ity made public a report by the Na-
tional Executive Committee of Hous-
ing Authorities saying that with pre-
paredness effort just getting under
way "we are already in a situation
as desparate as we were during the
the world war, when disastrous de-i
lays occured because war industries
couldn't get and hold workers for
whom no housing was available."
Tank Bids Opened3
Bids. for the new tanks were open-1
ed yesterday at Rock Island, Ill., but
the War Department said the contract
would not be awarded until later
this week. When the 629 are finished'
.the Army's mechanized forces will
have a total of approximately 1,700
light and medium tanks.
In many industrial cities, the hous-
ing report said, "Migration has al-
ready set in on a large scale, and
warkers brought in for jobs in de-
fense industries are being forced to'
leave because they cannot find places
to live."
New Appropriations Proposed
Defense developments elsewhere in
the Capital included:
1. The National Defense advisory
Commission proposed that Congress
appropriate $25,000,000 to the Ten-
nessee Valley Authority for electric
power to speed production of alum-
inum for airplane production.
2. The Senate Military Committee
postponed hearing testimony by Army
experts, on the Burke-Wadsworth -
Compulsory Military Training Bill
until after the Senate acted on the
confirmation of Col. Frank Knox
and Henry L. Stimson to be Secretar-
ies of Navy and War. 'Asked about
this bill at his press conference, Presi-
dent Roosevelt said the whole ques-
tion was being mulled over.
3. Rear Admiral Chester W. Nim-
itz said in a letter read in the House
that no navy vessels had been sold
to any belligerent nation.
4. Mr. Roosevelt said he would send
to Congress tomorrow a message re-
questing a $5,000,000,000 supplemen-
tary defense program.

To Treat Life
Of Hanptmann
Personal aspects of the life of Ger-
hart Hauptmann, 78-year-old Ger-
man author of "The Weavers," and
many other works, will be discussed

Fitzpatrick Discusses Catholicism
In Religious Conference Lecture
& ,

Dr. Gale Reviews Church
In China; Prof. Sweet
Considers U.S. Religion
"A cult which develops a culture"
was the description of the part Cath-
olicsm has played in modern civiliz-
ation, given by Dr. Edward Fitzpat-
rick, president of Mt. Mary College
for "Women in his speech at yester-
day's forumn of the Sixth Annual
Conference on Religion, attended by
students and faculty of the Summer
Session and prefessional religious
leaders and clergy of the Mid-West.
"A supreme literature, the begin-
nings of modern science, the creation
of great philosophy" were asscribed
by Dr. Fitzpatrick to the Catholic
church in American development..
Its opposition to the totalitarian
states, its broad social basis, its em-
phasis on the individual' and justice
were justifications for its existence
as a potent force in modern civiliz-
ation as it has been in the past. The
origin of the University in the Cath-
olepistemiad in 1817 under the lead-
ership of Father Gabriel Richard was
cited as an example of this trend in
the nation's early struggles.
China Has Many Missions
Dr. Essen M. Gale, advsor to the
Chinese government for more than
15 years, pointed out that the coun-
try has been a more formidable front
for missions than any other culture
group from the earliest contacts of
the 13th century down to the present
crisis in the Far East. Now missions
must reconcile American political
social ideals and Japanese idealogies
in order to contine t be an effective
force for good will and charity. The
question of whether Christainity will
abdicate its leadership is the most
vital question facing religion in
China, he emphasized.
Dr. William Sweet of the Divinity
School of the University of Chicago
opened his series of four speeches
before the conference with his anal-
ysis of the "American religious Scene
at the Opening of the National
Period" by picturing the divirsity of
religious groups which has developed
into the most complex patterns in
Religious Apathy In Colonies
The Colonial period was'folldwed
by a time of striking religious apathy,
Dr. Sweet noted, although various
dominations extended their organ-
izations throughout the American
continents and severed their relations
with churches abroad. Telling of the

The Government began mobilizing

Sweet noted the fact that colonies
which had official sanction were not
as frequently the home of religious
refugees as were those which had so-
called free churches.
The third day of the conferenece
will feature another talk by both Dr.
Sweet, Dr. Gale and Dr. Fitzpatrick.
Dr. Sweet will continue his addresses
on his central theme, "Church and
State in the World". Dr. Gale will

Fox Discusses Religious Reform;
Ministers In Dictionary. Listed

President Of Union College
Tells Of New England's
The nineteenth century pattern of
village thought in America had been
firmly established by 1830 and the
new philosophy had come to be dur-
the preceeding 15 years, President
Dixon Ryan Fox of Union College,
stated last night in his speech for
the Graduate Study Program in
American Culture and Institutions.
Abandoning . his announced sub-
ject, "Religion and Humanitarian-
ism", for the topic of "The Protest-
ant Counter-Reformation in Ameri-
ca," President Fox told of the fight
of the orthodox leaders in New Eng-
land to regain ground lost at the
turn of the 19th century to the lib-
eral sects.
American Orthodoxy
The most important single insti-
tution in the development of Ameri-
can orthodoxy for fifty years, Presi-
dent Fox asserted, was the establish-
ment in 1808 of the academy at
Andover, which spurred the develop-
ment of the theological seminary,
thus leading to a better understand-
ing among the clergy of that study.
Two years later, President Fox
maintained, the first general organ-
ization of Congregationalism came
about in the American Board of Com-
missioners for Foreign Missions,
marking the beginning of an at-
tempt at world evangelization from
America. Later, he said, the prosecu-
tion of missions became the church's
most popular appeal.
Bible Society Noted
Another movement of the Coun-
ter-Reformation was that of the Bi-
ble societies, President Fox pointed
out. In 1816 the American Bible So-
ciety was formed in New York which,
tQ this day, sends Bibles to all quart-
ers of the earth.
Reform movements, from war
against Sabbath-breaking to swear-
ing, and especially the temperance
movement, were taken . up by the
clergymen, President Fox told. Full-
time agents of the American Tem-
perance Society, formed in 1826, co-
operating with churches everywhere,
helped make this movement a na-
tional crusade, he stated.

Only Statesmen, Writers,
Outrank Men Of Church,
Dr. Dumas Malone Says
Clergymen are outranked only by.
statesmen and writers in their num-
ber of listings in the Dictionary of
American Biography, Dr. Dumas Ma-
lone, director of the Harvard Univer-
sity Press and editor of the Diction-
ary, told students and guests of the
Graduate Study Program in Ameri-
can Culture and Institutions yester-
Through a process of elimination
based upon the amount of space
given each clergyman in the Dic-
tionary, Dr. Malone presented a list-
of 25, who, on this basis, could be
considered as America's "Clerical
Role of Honor."
In this group, Dr. Malone pointed
out, the Cqngregational Unitarian
sects predominate, with the Anglican
Episcopal and Presbyterian following
in order. Catholics come about in
the middle, and Evangelists and
Lutherans lag behind in proportion
to their numbers, he indicated.
Geographically, he said, New Eng-
land rates highest, claiming 12 of
the 25. Of the others, 10 were born.
abroad, two came from Maryland,
and one from Virginia.
From these figures Dr. Malone
concluded that New England estab-
lished religious independence first of
all parts of the United States, and
that other churches were longer in
breaking away from the European
influence, suffering a delay in the
development of a native clergy.
The fact that there is no repre-
sentative on the list from west of
the Appalachians, Dr. Malone at-
tributed simply to chronology, say-
ing that by the time the West began
to produce a native clergy the great
age of clerical leadership in America
had passed.

The Mediterranean battle-royal
for which the world has been watch-
ing was in progress today (Wednes-
day) between British and Italian
naval forces.
Each side contended its fleet was
chasing the other.
The British said their Mediter-
ranean fleet was chasing a heavy
Fascist squadron which withdrew
behind a smoke screen yesterday af-
ternoon (Tuesday) after one Italian
battleship had suffered a hit at long
A correspondent for Stefani, offi-
cial Italian news agency, reported
the Fascist forces were pursuing the
British, who fled southward in the
Central Mediterranean after a bat-
tle that lasted from 2:30 p.m. to 9
p.m. Tuesday.
Stefani Report
The Stefani report, as received in
London, added that on Monday Ital-
ian planes had sunk a British criiser
and damaged a British battleship
and aircraft carrier in a battle far-
ther east, near the island of Crete.
No word was received direct fron
the Italian Government on either
.engagement, and the Stefani report
did not mention damage to the
British ships in the fight that began
Tuesday. It said the Italian Air
Force was bombing the British, how-

Italian resistance and did not tell
of any fighting on Monday.

ship emphasized Tokyo's attitude
toward England by seizing a British
ship in Shanghai's harbor.
These manifestations of Japanese
discontent with United States and
British policies in the Far East coin-
cided with a Japanese protest against
"mistreatment" of Japanese gen-

the death warrant of the democratic
Third Republic today by giving Pre-

unrestricted powers to write a new
totalitarian constitution.
The vote of the Chamber of Depu-

desperation, gave the Petain Govern-
ment authority to frame its own
laws and constitution, then create
its own national assembly to ratify
The measure, voted with only four
negative voices raised against it, de-
clared the new constitution "must
guarantee the rights of labor, family

they appeared armed, in plain
