Education Parley
Formulates Plans
For War Recovery

World Reconstruction Plan
Is Submitted At Final
Session Of Conference
Assumes Def eat
Of Totalitarianism
Nineteen elucators from six coun-
tries yesterday submitted to the final
session of the eighth international
conference of the New Education Fel-
lowship a plan for reconstruction of
the world after war embodying the
formation of a world brotherhood of
nations and giving to youth its re-
sponsibility in the post-war world.
The report, described as the first
concrete attempt of qualified men to
solve the problem of post-war re-
construction," stated that reconstruc-
tion after war must reach into -every
form of our economic, political and
social life.
"Without careful planning and pre-
paration of the educational element
in this reconstruction, Europe will
again collapse."
In making the report, the Com-
mittee assumed that Hitler and Hit-
lerism will be defeated, and the world
will be left in a state of near-chaos.
Three points were contained in the
report for action at the end of the
war. Paramount tasks would be the
immediate feeding and care of chil-
dren of all nations, medical care and
public health care to prevent outbreak
of epidemic, and the reconstruction
of schools and housing.
Call For Cooperation
The Committee called for the full-
est cooperatiop of all with the lead-
ers of the post-war era.
A comprehensive plan of education
for children, youth and adults must
be developed, adaited to diff1 ent
cultural conditions, and making the
fullest use of the experiences and
wisdom of the great educators.
The only basis for a durable peace
is a brotherhood of nations, the re-
port continues, in which each society
recognizes its own duties and rights.
- No existing society is a perfect de-
mocracy, but democracy is the stan-
dard by which societies and their
governments are judged and the idea
and goal towards which they strive.
Affirming that the first duty of
society is to guarantee to every man,
woman and child equal opportunity
for education without regard to race,
birth, sex, income or creed, the Com-
mittee declared that to embody these
principles into a society of the future,
men must be inspired by forces which
spring from a deeper dimension of
Action, Faith And Reason
"To develop, men need action; to
act, men need faith; to keep faith,
men need reason; to direct all three,
men need a vision of excellence; and
all this is empty unless it is pervaded
by love; and love is action and out-
The Committee laid down seven
tenets for the improvement of the
educational system, claiming that the
main need is to break down the walls
that stand between school and com-
Equality should become a reality in

NEW YORK, July 12:- ()-The
United States has given Portugal as-
surances it will not move into the
Azores or Cape Verde Islands, Joao
A. Dibianchi, Portuguese Minister, de-
clared today.
Dibianchi, awaiting the arrival of

Bermuda, said, "We've got full con-
fidence in the United States Govern-

ment and that's what counts."
(Pour contingents of Portuguese
treips have been sent to the Azores

them this week.
(Portugal protested to the United

German operations.)

Tax Revision
Is Considered
Defense Expenditures May
Necessitate Changes
WASHINGTON, Juy 12. -{'P)-
Mounting defense expenditures and
smouldering controversies over tenta-
tively-approved new levies led today
to Capitol talk of further revision of
the $3,500,000,000 tax bill
Ten days ago the House Ways and
Means Committee gave preliminary
approval to legislation to raise $3,-
504,400,000, but there were reports
that it ;night' be revised materially
and its presentation to the House de-
layed perhaps until Aug. 1.
The tentatively-approved bill is de-
signed to raise $1,154,500,000 addi-
tional in individual income taxes,
$1,332,000,000 in corporation levies
and almost another billion dollars in
excise and miscellaneous taxes. It
is now in the hands of bill-drafting
experts who expect to complete work
on it next week.
Because of President Roosevelt's
requests in the last two days for more
than $8,000,000,000 additional for de-
fense, some committee members pre-
dicted that an effort would be made
to raise the tax bill's total now, rather
than wait until later in the year or

even until next year for a new one.
One member said privately that he
woud renew the periodic attempt that
has been made to create a Congres-
sional super-budget committee to co-
ordinate the Government's expendi-
tures and revenue.

McKay Trial.
Ends As Jury,
Is Dismissed
Judge Lederle Announces
Decision To Write Up
Case As Disagreement
Will Have Retrial
First Of October
DETROIT, July 12. -(P)--The
storybook trial of Republican Na-
tional Committeeman Frank D. Mc-
Kay, who is himself almost a story-
book figure in Michigan politics, came
to a storybook conclusion today-
just a day short of two months from
its beginning.
The courtroom was packed with
spectators-including relatives and
friends of the defendants who had
waited through six weary days dur-
ing which the the jury deliberated-
when U.S. District Judge Arthur F.
Lederle announced he would write
the case into the record as a dis-
He ordered bonds of the twelve de-
fendants continued and announced
the case would be set for retrial, but
"not before the first of October."
Accused Of Mail Fraud
McKay, Flint's former Mayor Wil-
liam H. McKechan, and Fret C. Ehr-
mann, former secretary of the State
Liquor Commission, were accused of
mail fraud in connection with a
$500,000 liquor graft shakedown
charged by the government as a
basis for the eight counts of an in-
dictment returned last November by
a special federal grand jury.
Most of the remaining defendants
were associates in sales agencies
which the indictment described as
"dummy corporations" organized as
fronts for illicit graft collections.
They were: Louis H. Luckoff, vice-
president of Bass-Luckoff, Inc., De-
troit advertising agency.
John H. Marolf, son of an Iron
Mountain publisher.
JamesA. Trimble and Fisher Lay-
ton, both of Flint.
Charles Williams of Windsor, Ont.,
and his son, Earl.
Don Flory, Hudson, Mich.
Isadore Schwartz and Charles Let-
ter, both of Detroit.
McKechan was associated with
Marolf and Trimble in the Duo Sales
Engineering & Service Co., special
sales representative for Hiram Walk-
er and other distilleries in 1935 and
1936, and with Charles and Earl
Williams and Don Flory in the Wil-
liams Sales Co., which took over the
Hiram Walker account subsequently.
Depicted As Go-Between
Government attorneys depicted the
two sales agencies, Brass-Luckoff,
Inc., Schwartz and Leiter as go-
betweens who relayed payoffs from
distillers who sought to buy political
favor in an attempt to boost their
business in Michigan to "McKeighan,
the lieutenant" and to "McKay, the
The defense contended the sales
agencies were legitimate business
enterprises and that transactions
through which the government sought
to link McKay with McKeighan,
Luckoff, Schwartz and Leiter were
likewise legitimate.
Defense attorneys charged the en-
tire prosecution to a "political con-
spiracy" by "men high in the ranks
of the Democratic Party" to revenge
themselves for the defeat of former
Governor Frank Murphy.

15 Votes For War,
Wheeler Declares
WASHINGTON, July 12. -()-
Senator Wheeler (Den.-Mont.) said
today that if President Roosevelt
asked Congress for a declaration of
war now "he would not get more
than 10 or 15 votes in the Senate."
Wheeler has challenged the Chief
Executive to ask a declaration of
war "instead of trying to lead us in
by the back door."

Moscow ;Paints Different
Picture Of War Situation,
Sa'ys Defense Is, Holding
Syrian Armistice
Reported Initialed
(By The Associated Press)
Germany declared last night that
Adolf Hitler's legions had broken the
Stalin Line "at all decisive points,"
but Soviet Russia maintained stub-
born fighting had produced no im-
portant change on the 2,000-mile
Vitebsk, on the Dvina River 300
miles west of Moscow, was taken Fri-
day, the high command said, Ger-
mans are advancing toward Lenin-
grad east of Lake Peipus, on the
Russian-Estonian frontier, and Nazi
legions are "standing close before
Kiev," the Ukraine capital.
A markedly different picture was
painted in a midnight communique
from the Soviet Information Bureau
in Moscow.
It declared stubborn fighting took
place Saturday in the Pskov, Vitebsk
and Novograd Volynski sectors, but
that these engagements produced no
important changes in the front.
Issued Simultaneously
The German high command's
statements were issued in a special
communique shortly before mid-
night, almost at the same time the
Moscow war report was made.
In the Ukrainian operations, the
German high .command said "Ger-
man and Rumanian armies moving
out of Moldavia have thrown the
enemy back to and over the Dnestr
on a broad front."
The break-through east of Minsk
was accomplished, it said, by over-
coming "the strong fortified zone of
the Dnepi River"..north -of the Pinsk
marshes, evidently a major target
ever since the German forces moved
east into the buffer territory of Po-
land and the Sovietized Baltic states
three weeks ago.
Railways Destroyed
"Our air force, by destroying the
enemy railway net, already has taken
away from the enemy further possi-
bility of a counter operation on a
large scale," the high command said.
"Supply bases necessary for con-
tinuing operations of our panzer
armies already have been advanced
close to the former Stalin Line."
In another major development of
the world's wars, an armistice agree-
ment was reported to have been ini-
tialed by representatives of the
French and British-DeGaullist allies
to end the 34-day-old war in Syria
and Lebanon. ,
Ordered To Cease Firing
A cease firing order went out Fri-
day midnight to desert legions and
;arrison commands battling over the
announced British intention to see
that the French-mandated 'Levant
;tates did not become bases for a
German drive against Suez.
Tass, official Russian news agency,
;aid "the flames of a nationwide
-uerilla war are enveloping" the dis-
;ricts of Soviet Byelo-Russia (White
:ussia) captured by German Fascists.
rhe agency gave numerous instances
>f these harassing tactics, notably
n the region of Pinsk.
A Pravda dispatch from the front
leclared that Old Polish City, far be-
"ind the German front, was still in
Russian hands.

Foothold In Syria
Threatened By Nazis
(By The Associated Press)
CAIRO, July 12.-Firing ceased in
Syria today as the British and their
Free French Allies signed an armis-
tice on British terms with the Vichy
forces of High Commissioner Gen-
eral Henri Dentz.
But within a few hours after Syri-

an hostilities ended, Germany served
explosive notice that Britain would
have to fight to keep its middle east
foothold. A German raid onthe vital
Suez Canal route for American aid
caused "some material damage," an
Egyptian communique acknowledged.
Shooting in the war which started
June 8 ended at midnight, a middle
east communique announced, "after
General Dentz agreed to negotiate
