havoc and confusion.
Warned, however, by 16 days of
preliminary tremors, most people
had extinguished fires in their
homes before sleeping, and there-
fore escaped a conflagration, such
as that which, added its horror to
the earthquake of 1923, destroyed
10,000 buildings in Tokio and killed
approximately 100,000 persons.
The quake w s most severe near
Mishima and Numazu, in an area
15 miles long and five to ten miles
wide and about 125 miles southeast
Violence was concentrated at
Nirayama village where 74 lives
were lost. Twenty-two perished at
Nagoka, a hot springs resort, and
80 others died in villages nearby.
To the north, larger towns suf-
fered less severely, four lives being
lost at Mishama, three at Atami,
and one at Numazu. Fire which
followed in these towns were ex-
tinguished without great damage.
A portion of the great Panna tun-
nel between Atami and Numazu
collapsed, causing fear that many
laborers were caught in the bore'

10 year's work. Four bodies were
recovered and the tunnel, costing

Because Doak, legislative repre-
sentative of the Brotherhood of
Railway Trainmen, is not affiliated
with the American federation of
labor, William Green told President
Hoover Tuesday his appointment
would be opposed. Doak is figured
as the favorite in discussion of the
post, which will fall vacant next
week when James J. Davis takes his
seat as senator from Pennsylvania.
The federation president also
registered opposition to elevation
of Robe Carl White, assistant secre-

Green maintained the federation

the solution of the unemployment
problem took shape on Thanksgiv-

The suggestion that the country

the money in giving jobs on its

styles himself "king" of hoboes.
The general and the king were
exhorting a crowd of unemployed
today urging them to gather
each day for four hours outside
the city hall.
"You'll frighten those fellows,
in the city hall, to death, and
then we'll get something done,"
In a moment, however, he
found his audience vanishing.!
The listeners had espied a truck
moving along the street and it
bore the sign:
"Mr. Glad - Sandwiches and
coffee for the unemployed."
King O'Brien observed the
disappearance of the audience
sadly. "It's that coffee," he ru-

MOSCOW, Nov. 27. - One by
one, eight prominent Russian en-
gineers are throwing away their
chances for life in a counter-
revolutionary drama which is the
sensation of the communist world.
While snow is packed in the
cold streets of the Red capitol,
while the radio blares forth their
testimony to far regions of the
Soviet domain, while movie cam-
eras grind and four judges smoke
cigarettes, these eight are confess-
ing fully to the charges placed up-
on them in indictment last month,
that they conspired with certain
French and British interests for
the overthrow of the promninent
As the trial began yesterday,
Prof. Leonid Ramzin, appeared as
chief of the plotters, told full de-
tails of the scheme which was al-
leged to involve former President
Raymond Poincare, foreign minis-
ter of France, the French and Brit-
ish staffs, Polish and Roumanian
soldiers, and others, and he asked
no mercy, though he repented.
Just as frank today and equally
repentent was Victor Alexis Lar-
ichez, second in command. Like
Ramzin, he "told everything."
A third, Prof. Ivan Kalinikoz, al-
so told his story today, which was
substantially the -same related by
the other two and he told when
the indictments were made public
All Agree on Plot.
Late tonight the fourth, Prof.
Nikolai Chainovsky, took the stand
and will continue his confession
tomorrow. He verified the testi-
mony of the proceeding three and
admitted working to slow down
Soviet building concessions.
It was' a wide-spread plot, as the
defendants described it, to bring
intervention from France and Eng-
land with the neighboring coun-
tries of Poland and Jugo-Slavia; to
sabotage Soviet industry, thereby
slowing them down and raising the
cost of production, and otherwise
bring discontent among the Soviet
public so as to make the overthrow
of the proletarian dictatorship
The principle blame, however,
was laid upon French officials and
capitalists, and the defendant even
named by initial, those connected
with a "certain institution" in Mos-
cow. The French embassy was the
only institution of that country in
the red capitol.
