Radicals Increase Pressure Towards
Control of Government;
Munich Quiet
London, Oct. 1-(By A.P.)-A rev-
olptionary movement originated by
Nationalists organizations has broken
out at Kuestrin, 50 miles from Ber-
lin, says a Reuters' dispatch from the
German capitol.
The insurgents attempted to disarm
the garrison and occupy but the com-1
mander of the Reichswehr arrested the
Nationalist leaders and drove back the=
attackers. As a result of the insur-;
rection, Dr. Geissler, the minister of
defen'se, has imposed a censorship of;
all news of a military character. ,
Revolution Put Down7
Berlin, Oct. 1-(By A.P.)-The rev-
olutionary movement originated by
.nationalists organizations at Kuestrin
has been put down, says a commin-
ique issued by the ministry of defense.
and the reinforcements requested wili
not be required.
The communique says that the com-
mander of the red Reichwehr troops'
by energetic action was speedily the'
master of the situation. The Reichs-
wehr garrison forced its way into the
two surrounded by the rebels in the
arsenal and arrested several of their
The situation now is such that the'
reenforcemnts which were called
need not be sent to the scene.
Face Many Problems
Berlin, Oct. 1-(By A.P.)-Produc-
tion, and still more production,
abandonment of the eight hour fet-
ish and drastic curtailment of gov-
ernment job constitute some of the is-
sues on which chancellor Stresemann
and the socialists ar'e likely to disa-
gree in the near future.
The Bavarian situation also has
furnished an unexpected supply, of
combustibles, which threatens the
present solidarity of Stresemann's so-
cialist bourgeoise cabinet.1
Although the cabinet held a long
session today, at which the outlines I
of the chancellor's declaration to the
Reichstag tomorrow were formulated
parliamentary circles believe that the
socialist members of the cabinet will
be forced to retire under the increas-
ing pressure of the party's radical
Munich Quiet
Munish, Oct. 1-(By A.P.)-Quiet
prevailed in Munich and other points
in Bavaria today. A decree issued to-
day by Dr. Von Karh, the military
dictator prohibits strikes and pro-
vides for penitentiary sentences to
persons interfering with the opera-
tion of public utilities or who carry
out acts of sabotage, incite to strike
or perform acts of terror.
In case violation of the decree re-
sults in loss of life the death penalty
will be imposed.
New Haven, Conn., Oct. 1-(By A.
P.)-Decision to limit the freshman
class of Yale university to 850 stu-

dents is one of the most signficant
changes which marks the opening of

twenty-third year.
Other important changes include
the creation of a single undergradu-
ate faculty of arts and sciences, the
arrangement of 4 common time table
for the college, scientific school and

Rye, N. Y., Oct. 1-(By A.P.)-In a
gale that made play difficult, the
qualifying rounds for the women's na-
tional championship over the West
Chester-Biltmore country club course

for the 32 places of honor.
Miss Alexa Stirling, of New York
a native Georgian and a three time
winner, was the medalist with an 84
and the other 31 qualifiers netted the

Mr. Tillotson. ie stated that the
alumni allotment is certain to be sold
out within a short time with appli-
cations for 350 tickets being received
daily and that when thij supply is
exhausted, alumni and their friends
will call upon the students to get ex-

that many members of the student
body will find their individual sup-
ply curtailed.

plications for the Vanderbilt, Marine
and Minnesota games will be allowed
three extra tickets for each contest.

Oklahoma Head
Facing Crisis

Gov. J. C. Walton
Contention concerning the preroga-
tives of Gov. J. C. Walton of Oklahoma
has reached such a height that armed
forces may be necessary to keep
(down the rioting. The question to
be decided at the polls today is wheth-
er officers acting under the orders of
the governor-can prevent the elector-
ate of the state from going to the polls
to ballot at a special election at which
one of the matters for decision would
be whether the lower house could
meet on; its own initiative.
London, Oct. 1.-(By A. P.)-It took
George Carpentier, the French fight-
or just about 20 seconds today to
quiet the championshipaspirations of
Joe Beckett, who holds the heavy-
weight title in Great Britain. Carpen-
tier used both lefts and rights in a
brief series of exchanges and Beckett
remained on the floor for the final
Beckett led with a light left to his
opponent's jaw but there was no
power in the blow and Carpentier
shot over a left followed by a right to
Beekett's jaw, and Beckett *went down
for the count of five. The Englishman
got to his feet and the Frechman
dashed in and ripped with a right and
lift. He beat Beckett down againj

Portland, Ore., Oct. 1.-(By A. P)
-The declaration that the child labor
question is the vital one of the hour
was emphasized by President Samuel
Gompers in his annual address at the
opening of the 43rd annual convention
of the American Federation of Labor
here today.
He discussed this question before he
turned his attention to radicals.
He said "There can be no greater
menace to the civilization of our time
than the sacrifice of the citizens upon
the altar of Mammon. The child life
of our country must be conserved at
all hazards. To say that the consti-
tution of the United States is impot-
ent to protect the children of our time
is begging the question.
St. Louis, Mo., Oct 1-(By A.P.)-
A ten year program of building air-
planes to meet the deficit in machines
needed for purely training and de-
fensive purposes was advanced in an
address here tonight by Dwight F. Da-
vis, assistant secretary of War.
Speaking before the St. Louis Aero-
nautic Cooperation, and the Flyng
club of St. Louis, Mr. Davis said the
U. S. had no desire to enter aero com-
petition with other nations and that
such a program could not be consid-
ered as such by other nations, which
"already are doing all in their power,
to build up their air fleet".
"Today," he' sa'd, "we are showing
the same supineness, the same failure
to appreciate the necessity for pre-
paration which we have exhibited in
every period between war in which.
we have been forced to engage. This.
in spite of the fact that the recent
world war should have brought home
to us the utter folly of the course
which we have pursued."

Oklahoma City, Oct. 1-Preparations
for the opening tomorrow of polls in
Oklahoma moved apace tonight as the
hour for an election unprecedented in
the nation, drew near.
Court action, sustained by armed
citizens who volunteered for service
under county authorities, carried for-
ward the preparation for registering
the will of the people as to whether
the legislature shall be empowered to
meet to consider the official acts of
. C. Walton without his sanction.
The governor tonight reset the date
for the election as Pecember 6 after
declaring the national guard would
not be used tomorrow.
Election Looks Certain
Parred by the governor through
proclanmations and hampered by his
eleventh hour maneuvering of state
and county election boards, the elec-
tion tonight nevertheless appeared to .
be a virtual certainty.
lEvenm Gov. Walton's action tonight
in calling a new election for Decem-
ber failed to halt preparations for
the balloting tomorrow. le declared
that he did not want to be governor Itf
the people want to amend their con-
stitution to enable the members of the
Ku Klux Klan to impeach him, there-
by renmoving all legal restraint on the
lawlessness of the ian. The execu-
tive reiterated his charge that the
election tomorrow will be illegal, but
said he is willing to submit the ques-
tion in a fair and legal election.
Take (moo ernors ('hallenge
Only the initiative bill empowering
members of the lower house to con-
vene at their own call will be voted
upon at the Deecember election. Tak-
ing up the challenge of tie governor

tomorrow to prevent the election, op-

ing the governor without power to

the state at large today what they
termed an expresion of sentiment
on the part of citizens and officials
ithat constituted a strong denial of the
executive course.
From one county after another
came the report that the authorities,
ordered by the governor to prevent
the election had announced that they
would ignore his instuctions.
The governor denied the statement
attrilbuted to him yesterday that the
entird national guard would be mob-
ilized to prevent the election.
