WASHINGTON, March 9.-Presi-
dent Hoover today cleared his desk
of bills sent him by the last Con-
gress by giving four minor bills a
pocket veto along with the Wag-
I ner Unemployment bill.
The Wagner bill went into the
President's pocket Saturday, after
he had issued a statement saying
he could not sign it because, in
providing for state employment a-
gencies subsidized by the Federal
Government, it completely wrecked
the Department of Labor's employ-
ment service.
Two of the bills the President ve-
toed today were minor claim meas-
ures. The other two were bills pro-
viding for changes in free mailing
privileges and in the financial setupI
covering village letter carriers. I

BELGRADE, Jugoslavia, Mar.
9.-With the dead unofficially
reported at about 150, though
some rumors placed the number
much higher, the seriousness of
earthquakes during the week-end
in the region of the Jugo-Slav-.
Bulgarian and Greek frontiers,
began to be fully realized today.
Communication with all the
affected areas had not been re-
established, but it was known that
many villages had been devastated,
hundreds of peasants made home-
less and bridges and railways
ruined. The suffering from cold and
hunger was widespread.
Lines Down.
Relief work was handicapped by
the breakdown of communication,
and it was only with the greatest
difficulty that food, medicine, and
warm clothing were taken into re-
gions where it was most needed.
Shaken from their beds, and
panic - stricken after Saturday
morning's quakes, residents of the
borderline country were afraid to
to back to their homes until late
Saturday. At 4 a. m. Sunday morn-
ing they were routed into the open
again, screaming and making for
woods which afforded some shelter
from the bitter weather without
the danger of falling masonry.
Bulgaria Is Center.
The quakes, both Saturday and
Sunday, extend from eastern Jugo-
Slavia across Bulgaria to the shores
)f the Black sea. The epicenter was
near Drama, Bulgaria. The quakes
were felt in Greece, where 70 houses
.vere destroyed in the village of
.avallion, and in eastern Thrace
