THE SAGUACHE CRESCENT News Review of Current Events the World Over Soviet Premier Attacks the United States and Secretary of State Stimson Begins Study of the Russian Question. By EDWARD UCH attention Is being paid these days to our relations with Russia, or the lack of them. In Mos- cow the opening ses- sion of the All-Unlon Soviet cugress was aroused to wild en- thusiasm by a violent attack on the United States--and incident- ally all other "capital- V. Molotov tstlc" countries-- de- livered by Viacheslav Molotov, presi- dent of the council of people's com- missars, which means premier of the Soviet government. Molotov characterized the lack of diplomatic relations with the United States as abnormal and as being part of a plot of European groups, headed by the Vatican, against Soviet Rus- sia. He said that twenty countries are having satisfactory relations, ex- cept Poland, whose relations might be Improved. He denounced the charges of dump- ing and forced labor that have been made against the Soviet government, and declared the American "foolish Fish blll"--framed by Representative Hamilton Fish, Jr., after a congres- sional investigation into Communist sctlvtles--undoubtedly would affect trade relations between the two coun- tries. "America must remember," he de- clared, "that the Imports of the Union of the Socialist Soviet Republics de- pend upon her exports." The premier called the attention ot the delegates to a statement IY an American senator that "a thou- sand persons are starving to death daily in the United States." He asked the delegates to compare this situa- tion to that In the U. S. S. R. where he said, there was no unemployment and no starvation. In Washington it was learned that Secretary of State Henry Stimson Is now devoting most of hts time to a careful study of the Russian question In all its phases, presumably at the request of President Hoover. That this indicated any important change of policy by the administration was considered unlikely by the well in- formed. Indeed, William R. acting secretary in the absence of Mr. Stlmson, said that the latter's study had no significance beyond the fact that the secretary desired to inform himself more 21osely on the Soviet problem. Since becoming seeretary, Mr. Castle pointed out, Mr. Stlmson has been devoting his time to dis- armament, Latin-American affairs, and other problems, leaving no time tO study Russia. From the statements of state de- partment officials it was gathered that no consideration would be given to the suggestion that a separate div- ision for Russia be established in the state department, and that there was nothing in the report that an assist- ant secretary of state would be ap- pointed to handle Russian affairs. President Hoover haz In the past stood firmly by the policy that there can be no recognition of Russia be- fore the Soviet government agrees to recognize official and private obliga- tions to thls country and cease propa- ganda intended to overthrow the Ameflcan goverament. D ISTRICT ATTOR. ney Thomas C. T. Craln of New York county is liable to lose his Job as a re- sult of the exposures of corruption in the magistrates' courts of ithe metropolis. The City club through its officers filed formal charges against Craln. alleging inefficiency, T. C. T. Crain incompetency and mis- feasance in office, :;nd asked that Gee. Franklin D. Roosevelt remove him. The governor promptly appointed Samuel Seahury as special commis- sioner to investigate the charges and report back to him. If he sees fit the governor may remove Crain and name a successor to serve the remain- der of the year. Seahury already has been serving as cpeclal referee in- vestigating the magistrates' courts and will continue that work. It is expected hat the Craln inquiry will lead into the police department and any other department of the city gee. ernment or phase of political life which may be related to the district attorney's conduct of hls offiee, Republican leaders and others are urging that the legislature aLthorlze a thorough nonpartisan Investigation of the entire New York city govern- ment, and a mass meeting of citizens was called to promote that plan. T IS understood now that the new naval treaty between France and Italy will be signed by only those nations and Great Britain. It will not be incorporated In the London naval treaty of 1030, but both pacts will run concurrently until 1936. Of- flclal expressions of approval of the convention will he asked of both the United States and Japan, but neither W. PICKARD will be called on to slgn it, because it was recognized that this might em- barrass them owing to the high sub- marine tonnage which the pact allots to France. The London treaty as ratified by the American senate provides for 52.- 000 tons of submarines for the Unit- ed States and Great Britain. The Franco-ltallan-Britlsh agreement pro- vides for 81,(D0 tons of submarines for the French navy. If this figure were to be inJerted in the London treaty It is possible the higher ton- nage would be questioned by the sen- ate and the whole treaty would need the senate's consent again. This the administration desired to avoid. Tim same parliamentary reason applies to the case of JapaL. Arthur Henderson, British foreign secretary, made public the terms of the three-power accord in a long mem- orandum. They cover three outstand- ing considerations in the armaments sltuatlom Technical problems of Eu- ropean naval power are swept away; renewal of an armaments race such as led to the World war has. it Is hoped, been prevented; success of the world disarmament conference at Geneva next year is brought meas- urably closer. The basis of the agreement as out- lined is the detailing of the limits of both the French and Italian building programs in all fleet categories until 1936. It is estimated by naval experts that France will ontinue to hold a superiority of about 157,000 tons over the Italian fleet, although this is not stated explicitly in the memorandum. NE of the State department's most valuable men, Undersecre- tary Joseph Potter Cotton, died In Baltimore after a long illness and two severe operations for spinal infec- tion. Mr. Cotton. who was' fifty-five years old and a native of .Rhode Is- land. worked under President Hoover when the latter was food adminis- trator and later secretary of com- merce. He was appointed to the state department post in 1929 and made a reputation for bls frank and direct diplomatic methods. LIVER WEN- dell Holmes, the grand old man of the Supreme court of the United States, cele- brated his ninetieth birthday n Sunday. and received at his home the affectionate congratulations o f countless friends and admirers, In the eve- ning the venerable as- Justica soclate Justice made Holmes his first radio speech, after listening to the tributes of Chief Justice Hughes and ethel's. Justice Holmes said, through the microphone: "In this symposium my part is only to sit in silence. To express one's feelings as the ena draws near Is too intimate a task. "But I may mention one thought that comes to me as a listener in," he added. "The riders in a race do not stop short when they reach the goal. There is a little finishing canter be- fore coming to a standstill. There Is time to hear the kind voices of friends and to say to one's self: "The work Is done.' But Just as one says that the-answer comes: 'The race ts over. but the work never is done while the power to work remains.' The canter that brings you to a standstill need not be only coming to rest. It cannot be, while you still live. For to live is to function. That is all there Is to liv- ing." Next day Justice Holmes achieved his ambition of hading down a decls- after he was ninety. In it the Su- preme court ruled that within the meaning of the motor vehicle theft act an airplane is not a motor vehicle. TEALING a march on the insurgent Republicans and Democrats, the Republican national committee an. nouneed the organization of an ad- visory council for agriculture, with Senator-Elect L. J. Dickinson of Iowa as Its chairman. The other members are enator Arthur Capper of Kansas and Representatives Robert G. Sim- mons of Nebraska and Fred S. Pur- nell of Indiana. ThlL council will have headquarters in Washington "and in the West, and will immediately he- gin work in the corn and wheat belts. One of its purposes, It was stated, is to be the "dissemination of accurate information regarding the various con. strucflve steps the administration has taken to aid the farmers and to save them from bankruptcy in this critical period of economic depression and drought." Two days after this announcement was made, the insurgents opened their scheduled conference the purpose of which was to demonstrate that the Hoover administration did little if anything to relieve the economic de- pression In the country. Five sesslons were held, each devoted to discussion of a major topic. Seantor Borah. who still advocates the export debenture, presided over the session on farm re- lief; Senator Norris, ehalrlnan at tile conference, presided over the public utilities session ; Senator Cutting over the representative government ses- sion, and Senator-Elect Costlgan of Colorado over that devoted to the tariff, All of these except Costigan are nominally Republicans. NE more campaign Issue was pro- vided for the Democrats when President Hoover vetoed the Wagner bill for a reorgauized employment service. Even If the measure is again introduced and passed by the next congress, the Democrats are sure to make the veto one of their principal talking points, claiming the bill should have been enacted and signed at the height of the business depression. MPRESS N A G- ako of .Tapan has given birth to a daughter, her fourth, and the imperial fami- ly and the Japanese nation are rejoicing am celebrating. But :he Joy is mainly over the safety of tile new princess anti her mother, and there is little concealment of t h e d.isappolntment Empreet that the child is not a Nagako son. The throne of apan can pass only to male descendants of the sun goddess and Emperor Htrohlto is yet without a direct heir to carry on the line that has been unbroken for many centuries. Prince Chichibu, the em- peror's next younger brother, contin- ues to be the heir presumptive. EAR ADMIRAL SAMUEL Mc- Gowan, retired, appearing before the war policies commission that is now conducting hearings, advocated the adoption of a constitutional amendment to prevent the country from going to war without a refer- endure of its citizens. He added the amendment also should provide that if the referendum resulted in war every able bodied male citizen be- tween the ages of eighteen and thirty- five be drafted. He advocated pro- hibltlng any increases In wages dur- ing war also. Chairman Johnson of the house veterans' committee and General Del- afield, former chairman of the war department board of contract adjust- ments, opposed the referendum plan as impracticable and unnecessary. Bernard M. Baruch, who was chair- man of the war industries board dur- ing the World war. proposed that, to prevent profiteering during a war, all prices should be fixed by Presidential proclamation at the prewar level. CORES of towns and villages In the Balkans, in Jugoslavia, Bul- garia and Greece, have been wrecked 'by earthquake shocks, and the though officially put at 150, probably numbered nearer 1,000. The temblors continued for several days. King Alex- ander of Jugoslavia and King Boris of Bulgaria both left their capitals and personally directed the relief work in the stricken districts, which was carried on effectively by the Red Cross. Terrific gales, accompanied by snow and extreme cold, swept over most of Europe during the week. and flooded rivers, blocked highways and delayed trains added t .the distress. The is- land of Mauritius was devastated by a hurricane that killed a number of persons and left Z0,000 homeless. Northwestern Japan had an earth- quake that destroyed many houses. ERU'S new provisional president is Lieut. Col. David Samanez Ocam- pc, and he has assumed the office in Lima after flying there from Arequlpa. Ocampo was the head of the "southern Junta" which was set up by Arequlpa revolutionaries. He and his to bring peace to the country, gave up their regime in .favor of the new Junta at the caplta, and Ocampo was promptly put at the head of the gov- ernment. ECRETARY of the Interior has ac- cepted the bid of the i Six Companies, Inc., of San FranCisco which offered to build the Hoover dam, pew- ' er house and appurt- enant works at the Boulder canyon proj- ect fo $48,890,995. rhib huge engineering Job, the biggest ever W. H. Wattis undertaken In the United States, will be directed for the present from a hospital in Sau Francisco, for William H. Wattls, president of the Six Companies, is confined In the institution. The entire project, including erec- tion of a dam and power house, in- stallation of machinery and building of a canal, is estimated to cost the tremendous total of $165,000,000. Con- gress has already autLorlzed expendi- ture of $108,000,000 for the dam and appurtenant work. AVY department officials announce that contracts for the construc- tion of at least six of the eleven de- stroyers appropriated for during the short session of congress will be awarded early this smnmer. The de- signs for the new destroyers call for the largest, most heavily armed, fastest and most seaworthy vessels of this class ever built for the Unit- ed States fleet. They will have a speed of 40 miles an hour, weigh 1,500 tons each, carry 5-1nch guns and, In addition, have a large fuel carry- Ing capacity to provide a larger ra- dius of action. I(), 1931.

Within the past twenty years, a thriving industry has been developed in the West, and par- ticularly in southern Colorado--that of growing Pinto beans. These beans are delicious and are quite as valu- able as Navy or white dried ACcording to Miriam J. Williams of the Colorado Agricultural College, beans, when dried, are changed in composition, losing a great deal of water and increasing in protein and starch content. They have a much higher percentage of protein than mos vegetables, although the protein found is not complete. Gunnison.--Old King Winter made his last stand against approaching spring 10,000 feet up in the Rockies near Gunnison, when he presided over a spectacular winter carnival, the fea- ture of which was the selection and crowning of a queen.
