ROME, June 4.--(P)-The ablest

the church and the state, but the
Italian government apparently was
making no move toward concilia-
On the other hand, meinbers of
the Catholic clubs which have been
closed by government order have
been informed that up to July 1
they are eligible for membership in
Fascist organizations. After that
date they will be required to work
their way up through the Fascist
ranks through eligibility.
Make Gesture of Protest.
The Marchese Pacelli, attorney to
the pope and brother of the papal
secretary of state, attended the
'conference with the pontiff this
morning. It has been reported that
fthe Marchese, with Cardinal Gas-
parri, has been conducting infor-
mal negotiations for a settlement
of the dispute.
As a gesture of protest against
dissolution of Catholic clubs the
Pope today forbade the customary
religious proc --ions commemorat-
ing Corpus Christi outside the Cath-
oheld inside and the priests in Italy's
20,000 parishes explained to their'
congregations that t h e unusual
procedure was taken because there
was no guarantee that the Cor-

Astounded The World.
It was in October, 1929, that the
;w-X astonished the world by tak-
ing into the air 169 persons and
flying for an hour at an altitude of
1,200 feet over Lake Constance, on
which she had b en built. In No-
vember, 1930, thship was ready
for a flight to the United States
and in preparation made a num-
ber of test flights which carried her
over ,Rolland, England, and France.
In England, the Prince of Wales
made a flight in her and for 10
minutes took over the controls.
From Calshot the DO-X flew
down the French coast, making a
descent off Larochelle and then
taxiing for 50 miles to a point near
Bordeaux. This was her first test of
ability to weather a lengthy trip,
on the surface.
Trip to U. S. Abandoned.
Because of the lateness in the:
season, the flight to the United
States was abandoned and plans
were made to the trip to Brazil. On
Nov. 27, the DO-X reached Lisbon,
and it was while there that a fire
destroyed one of her huge wings.
Repaired last January, she again
took to the air and on Jan. 31
reached the Canary Islands.

MANISTEE - A body found last
night in Manistee harbor was
identified definitely today as that
of Dr. Alvin T. Letson, Fountain,.
Mich., veterinarian, who disappear-

down the Elbe river several hours
later in a liner. A curious crowd
assembled to greet them but there
was no sign of life 4from their cur-
tained windows.
Their conversations with the
British premier and Foreign Secre-
tary Arthur Henderson at Chequers
are expected to dealwith the mat-
ter of reparations, the Austro-Ger-
man customs treaty and other mat-
ters affecting indirectly the whole
of Europe.
The chancellor's last act before
leaving Berlin was to submit to
president 'Paul- von Hindenburg a
number of emergency decrees which
are believed to embody additional
slashes in the budget and in wage
schedules. If approved, these are
expected to contribute further to
the nation's discontent.
Their departure coincided with
rioting byCommunists and unem-
-ployed persons near the city hall.
Sho ps were raided, at least two per-
ss were wounded.and a half a
dozen arrests were, made before the
disturbance was put down. Four
persons were wounded at Disburg-
Hamborn . in a similar outbreak
during the* day.
Ex-Ruler of Hedjaz
Dies afterSickness
JERUSALEM, June 4.-(IP)-For-
mer King Hussein' of ,the Hedjaz
died at dawn today hatAmman,
Trans-Jordia, after a long illness.
Three of his sons were at the
bedside. Another, King Feisal of
Irak, was unable to come here from

Hussein was born in Constanti-
nople in 1856, the son of one of the
noblest families in Arabia. Taken
to Mecca at the age of 8, he spent
his early manhood in assisting his
uncle, .3heriff Abdulla, in managing
the Hedjaz tribesmen. Later in
life he led a revolt against his un-
cle's successor and was banished
to Constantinople, where he became
a member of the imperial Ottoman
council. In 1908, he was appointed
sheriff of Hedjaz and became king
some years later. His failure to
form an Arab federation led to his
abdication in October, 1924.
Redemption of Stubs

No Reponse Made.
The Fascist newspapers made no
comment on this development, nor
did they carry any editorial expres-
sions in connection with the con-
troversy. Neither did the govern-
ment make any outward response.
It was learned- today that: the
pontiff had sent a second note of
protest to the government follow-
ing that which Foreign Minister
Dino Grandi declined to receive
last Friday.
Submarine Completes Trial Run;
Left Last Night for
PROVINCETOWN, Mass., June 4.
-()-The submarine Nautilus, in
which Sir Herbert Wilkins and a
group of scientists hope to sail to
the north pole, returned to the har-
bor this afternoon after satisfac-
tory speed trials and was to leave
tonight for London.
Captain Sloan Danenhower, the
Nautilus commander, expressed sat-
isfaction with the submarine's per-
formance in the speed trials over
the navy's one-mile course off Pro-
vincetown, and said the undersea
craft would have a cruising speed
of 11 knots an hour. He said he
also was well pleased with the sub-
marine's fuel consumption.
The submarine crew included be-
sides Sir Herbert, 18 scientists who
will accompany him in the attempt
to cruise under the Arctic ice.
Three other scientists will join the
party in Europe.
Captain Danenhower said the
submarine was stocked for its long
voyage with food sufficient for 18
months and fuel and oil for a voy-
age of from 4,000 to 5,000 miles.
From England, Wilkins plans to go
to Spitzbergen where the start will
be made for the projected voyage,
most of it under ice, across the Arc-
tic circle to Alaska. The Nautilus,
christened in honor of the craft

Mellon Announces $800,000,000
Issue Oversubscribed
Seven Times.
WASHINGTON, June 4.- (P) -
Popularity of government bond is-
sues through which the United
States raised money for the World
war was evidenced again today,
when Secretary Mellon said an
$800,000,000 issue announced Mon-
day had been oversubscribed seven
and one-half times in three days.
In a statement Mellond said $6,-
000,000,000 had been subscribed for
the 18-year, 3 1/8 per cent bonds to
be issued June 15. The allotments
will be announced later, probably
tomorrow night.
While treasury officials had ex-
pected the bond issue would be
oversubscribed the eagerness with
which it was sought was received
with surprise and credited to a
desire by investors to put their idle
money to work in safe investments.
It also was pointed out that gov-
ernment bonds could easily be con-
verted into cash. The bonds will be
tax exempt except for inheritance,
estate taxes and sur-taxes.
The bond issue is the first move
to reduce the outstanding short
term paper through which funds
have been raised to operate the
government in the face of declining
revenues and increasing expendi-
The reception given the issue in-
creased the belief that the treasury
would announce another bond issue
either when the Septembre financ-
ing is done next fall or in Decem-
ber. From July 1 to December 1,
approximately $1,600,000 in short
term paper will mature.
