Selective Service Terms
Would Be Extended
More Than One Year
Barkley Predicts
Favorable Action
WASHINGTON, July 14.-('P)-
Congressional leaders decided at a
conference with President Roosevelt
today to press for immediate enact-
ment of legislation to hold selectees,
national guardsmen and reservists
in service for more than one year.
The decision was made despite
some earlier doubts in Administra-
tion quarters on Capitol Hill that
Congress would be willing to take the
After the White House conference,
however, Senator Barkley of . Ken-
tucky, majority leader, predicted to
reporters that when Congress "gets
the facts and realizes its responsi-
bility it will react favorably." Speak-
er Rayburn (Dem.-Tex.) of the
House had said last week he doubted
the proposal could win approval from
Congress at present.
Hearings To Start Thursday
Chairman Reynolds (Dem.-N.C.)
announced that the Senate military
committee would hold hearings on'
the legislation starting Thursday. He
added, however, that he was still op-
posed to the bill as an individual'
Arguments in support of the legis-
lation were submitted to the Presi-;
dent's congressional lieutenants by,
Gen. George C. Marshall, Chief of;
Staff, who has recommended that
all men now in the Army be kept in
service beyond their scheduled peri-
ods of duty.
Barkley said he was convinced
that the action was needed to pre-
vent the Army from "disintegrating
because of- the withdrawal of large
numbers of trained soldiers."
Leaders made it clear that the
immedate program did not include
anotb er recommendation by General
Marshall that an existing restriction
against use of selectees outside the
Western Hemisphere be removed.
Three Approaches
The majority leader said there
were three possible approaches that
might bemade to the questionyof
keeping the troops in service, any
one of which might be chosen.
Congress might, he explained
amend the act directly to provide for
keeping the men in service; it could
declare a state of national emergency
which would permit keeping the
troops on duty, or the law could be
amended to put the selectees on the
same basis as reserve officers, so
that they could be called for active
duty after their regular training
periods had ended.

The World War of 1914-18 was sig-'
nificant chiefly in opening up for
Germany the possibility of 'domina-
tion. over all the smaller5 national
areas of easternhEurope, Prof. Rich-
ard Hartshorne of the University of
Wisconsin declared yesterday.
Professor Hartshorne spoke in the
lecture series sponsored by the Grad-
uate Study Program in Public Policy
in a World at War. His subject was
"The World's Geographical-Political
The possibility of German domina-
tion was brought about through the
destruction of her ally, Austria-Hun-
gary, Professor Hartshorne pointed
out, the immediate result being the
prevention of threat of Austro-Hun-
garian domination of all southeast-
ern Europe.
The most critical weakness of
southestern Europe in recent years,
Professor Hartshorne explained, has
been the exposed position of most of
the smaller states to the overwhelm-
ingly larger German unit, but the
fact that it may now lie suffering
destruction does not prove that the
structure was inevitablS destined to
collapse. It shows only that the struc-
ture lacked the military power to
withstand direct attack from Ger-
many following the withdrawal of
counter-pressure from its other neigh-
bor, Russia, and the general aband-
onment of a larger system of collec-
tive security, the lecturer asserted.
The major threat to the security
of eastern and western Europe is the
same, Professor Hartshorne main-
tained: the central German national
area of much greater productive size

increase its potential danger to the
national states on the west, he said.
"Hence the paradox insufficiently
understood in France and England,"
Professor Hartshoren noted, "that
the stability of western Europe de-
pended upon the national security
of states that were otherwise of such
little concern tothem as Austria,
Czechoslovakia and Poland."
Prof. Hartshorne warned against
the acceptance of a solution in the
form of the Nazi concept ofth e Leb-
ensraum. "The world in general,"
he stated, "cannot be expected to
accept a proposal that the previous
organization of half a continent be
overthrown by force for the sake of
a so-called "new order" for which
no plan has been offered."

LONDON, July 14.-The RAF went

A tenth German plane, the second

The RAF made morning raids on

Cherbourg and Le Havre, rail yards

in the afternoon big Blenheims of
the bomber command, searching for
North Sea shipping, attacked a small
convoy off the Dutch Frisian iselands,
the Air Ministry said.
Three direct hits were scored on
one vessel of 6,000 tons, another of
3,000 tons was hit astern and an
escort vessel of 1,500 tons was struck
amidships, the communique said. A
fighter which tried to break up the
attack was shot down into the sea, it
was said, and all the Blenheims
came home unharmed.

Group Cooperation
Gives Experience,
IBeauinont 'Asserts
"Today pupils acquire experience
in cooperating with each other
towards a common goal," Prof. Henry
Beaumont of the University of Ken-
tucky said before the educators in
the Univesity High School Auditor-
ium yesterday.
"They soon discover that the best
interests of all requires a considera-
tion for the needs of each individual
in the group," he said, and that each
child must put forth his best effort
if the results are to be what he wants.
This interest in common enterprise
serves. as a powerful motivation and
makes it possible for the modern
teacher to dispense with the older
forms of discipline."
"Those forms were necessary at a
time-when the pupils were not aware

of their relations to the group and
were compelled to engage in activi-
ties frequently unrelated to their in-
terests and needs," Professor Beau-
mont said.
