While Japanese air- planes flew threateningly ~wer Peiping and Tientsin, the Japanese com- manders filed a demand for an apol- ogy for the Incident, an indemnity, punishment of the culprits, complete elimination of anti-Japanlsm, a g~aar- antee against its repetition, and the appointment of Japs.nese advisers In the Chinese police departments. of the United States court, Including Chief Joined in an opinion the Agricultural Adjust- ment act. Three as- sociate juStices, Stone. Brandeis and Cardozo, dissented. The major- lty decislou, read by A s s o c I a t e Justice Owen J, Roberts, held that the AAA was wholly unconstitution- al because it Invaded the rights of the states In seeking to control farm production.

As a substitute for the general neu. trallty law proposed by the President, Sermtor Lewis advocates enactments granting the chief executive authority to issue regulations placing embargoes upon shipments of commodities which would threaten American neutrality, but stipulating that these regulations should be submitted to the senate for acceptance or amendments. WITH the obvious Intention of building up public sentiment in favor of the special brand of neutral- Ity legislation he desires, Senator Nye had before his senate munitions committee for several days ft. P. Morgan, Thoums W. Immont and o t h er members of the great Morgan banking com- pany. Nye and Ste- phen Rauschenbusch, investigator for the committee, sought _,,to prove that the United States was drawn Into J. " ~. Morgan the World war bY the loans made to the allies by Mor- gan & Co. and Its associates. The tea. timony concerning these loans and their implications was long and com- plicated, The financiers were well pre- pared for the inquiry and were armed with a great quantity of documents, and though there was a good deal of acrimonious talk. Mr. Morgan aP- peared entirely unperturbed. WHEN the delegates to the naval conference in London resumed their deliberations Admiral Osaml Na- gano. chief representative of Japan, firmly repeated his demand that Great Britain and the United States concede the parl~y claims of Japan as prelim- Inary to any agreemenL Thls attltnde stopped all discussion of the British, French and Italian proposal for ex- change of Information about naval building plans and threatened the con- ference with early collapse. The crisis was so serious that Foreign Secretary Anthony Eden himself took a part in the affair, calling the Japanese to his office in an attempt to induce them to adopt a more conciliatory attitude. Japanese spokesmen declared they were Interested first and last In the total tonnage question---under which they demand equality--and were not at all interested in other aspects of naval limitations. SURROUNDED by klleg lights, mi- crophones and movie cameras, President Roosevelt stood before the senate and house in night ~olnt session and delivered what wan nominally his an- nual message on the state of the nation. Actually It was not that at all, but a statement concernln~ the warfare and In- ternational d i a t u r- banee.~ onthe other continents, followed by what the press generally conshlered an eloquent and mill- President tent political speech Roosevelt addressed to the people of the United States, wl)o by the millions were listen- ing in on tlwlr radios. Partisan olnn- Ion of his message Is perhaps wortl~- tess. Of course his sapporters [)raised It highly, and his opponents were equally emphatic In derogation. Democrats and Republicans alike commended the President's opening paragraphs In which he boldly con- demned the aggression of Italy and Japan, though without nantlng those nations: and there was little dissent from his assertion that the United States must maintain Its neutrality while seeking to "discourage the use by bellt~eren~ nations of any and all American products calculated to facil- itate the prosecntlon of a war in quan- tities over and above our normal ex- ports to them In time of peace," The remainder of the message, de- vnted to domestic affairs, was devoted chlclly to a belligereptly worded de- fense of the New Deal measures of the administration, an attack on those who oppose tltem anti a spirited passage in which Mr. Roosevelt defied aaa dared his critics to move tar the re- peal of those measures Instead at "hiding their dissent in a cowardl.v cloak of generality." In only two paragraphs did the President dwell oa "the state of the nation." In tl)eso he said that after nearly three year~ of tile New DPa[ national income 1~ Increasing, agriculture and lndastry are '+retnrnhlg tO full activity," aml "we approach a balance of tile nath, oaJ budget," One passage In the message was m. terpreted by some as a throa~ to close tile lower courts to suits attacking tl~e constitutionality of federal laws. Tap TIIOUGH the rainy season that wlll check his campalgu is fast ap- preaching. Mussolhd continued to send fresh troops by the thoasands to Ethi- opia, It was estimated that Italy'~ I~st African forces already numbered more than 250.000, and there were re- ports that 100,000 more would be sent iu the near future. The Ethiopian governmenL accusing Italy of continued employment of poi- son gas In a policy of "merciless ex- termination" of the Ethiopian people, urged the League of Nations to dis- patch a co~nmisslon of Inquiry to the scene of strife. League officials an- nounced that the request would be handled by the league council, which meets January 20. SECRETARY of Labor Frances Per- kins found in the developments of the last year much of benefit for the American workingman. In her annual report she cited these five great advance- meats for labor: 1. Unemployment compensation, accom- pllshed through the social security act. 2. Old-age security, brought about also by the social security act. I]. Establishment of hoards for settling in. dustrtal disputes lo- cally. 8ecretary 4. Greater co-opera. Perkins ties between the states and the Labor department, through regional confer- ences. 5. Development of the United States employment service. THIS WEEK AAA Is No More Who Will Pay Now? Only 11 Can Run Fast The State of the Union Even the large number of strikes during 1935 could be viewed with some satisfaction hy her, for she said they were "due In part to the natural expec- tation of labdr to share in the early fruits of~business Improvement." IN HIS message to congress submit- ting his approved budget for the 1937 fiscal year, beginning July 1 next, President Roosevelt followed the dou- ble system of accounting his admin- istration has alwayd employed---one set of books for regular expenditures and Income and another set for emergency spendlng and appropriations. He as- serted that receipts from all sources in the next fiscal year will aggregate an estimated $5,054,000,000. Expenditures for all regular government departments are estimated at $5,649,000,000. So the "regular" budget will be in balance, The Supreme court decision reject- lng AAA, the "'agricultural adjust- nlent act," affects every American di- rectly. Issued Just as the President announced his pro- gram to balance the national hud- get w I t hi n one thousand m i 1 1 i o n dollars, the decision upsets that adndn- lstration program. Men with large Incomes, of Wllonl few survive, may worry, for the de- cision takes from Arthur Brisbane the government sev- en hnndred milllon a year of proc- essing taxes that will have to be made good elsewhere. The manufacturers'. or processiog, tax. handel1 along to the little people, was. In reality, a sales tax on Ilfe's necessitles--cotton cloth. flour, meat. The question is. Who will provide cash promised the farmers, since the Supreme court will not sanction the sales tax, disgu'Ised as a "press" tax? Whence will come the hundreds of mllllons the government owes to farm- ers under Its AAA promises and has ] not yet paid? The farmers did their I part, the government could lmrdly fail to do its part by paying.

It happened on a Sunday morning in July, 1912. Caroline was just a young bride then. She had only been married a couple months. She and her husband had moved into a new house. There were rugs to be laid and furniture to be moved and a million other things that had to be done all at once. Caroline was so confused that a lot of things slipped her mind.
