RIO DE JANEIRO, Oct. 8. -The
federal government of Brazil, faced
with revolutionary movements from
the north and south, today poured
out armies and naval forces to sup-
press the rebel armies. The govern-
ment devoted particular attention
to the rebels in the state of Minas
Geraes to the northwest, and Per-
nambuco in the north. A concen-
tration of troops also was being
carried out in the state of Santa
The main purpose of these move-
ments was to prepare the ground

Unidentified Bodies Lie in State
in Westminster Abbey
Mortuary Hall.
(fy Associated Press)
LONDON, Oct. 8. - Peers and
commoners met alike today in
homage to the 47 dead of the R-10
whose bodies rest, all but a few of
them unidentified in the mortu-
ary chapel of Westminster Abbey.
Coffins ranged in grim rows, over
each a flag, gave silent testimony of
the completeness of Athe disaster
which had overtaken the world's
largest dirigible airship, to which
many Londoners waved a farewell
as it departed on its journey East

Frey Criticizes Massachusetts
for Giving Judiciary
Too Much Power.
(fly Asocied IPes )
BOSTON, Oct. 8.-Massachusetts
law which permits the judiciary to
rule on the constitutionality of
legislation before it is passed was
criticized today before the Amer-
ican Federation of Labor conven-
tion here by John P. Frey, secre-
tary of the metal trades depart-
ment. Frey spoke on the so-called
"yellow dog" contract.
The criticism was made, Frey
said, because a recent opinion of
the supreme court of this state
which declared proposed anti-
yellow dog contract legislation to
be unconstitutional, would un-
doubtedly be used against labor in
other states. The only state that
has adopted legislation prohibiting
the yellow dog contract is Wiscon-
sin, Frey said. Such legislation has
been endorsed by many state labor
Frey said the "interference" of
the judiciary with the legislative
branch of the Massachusetts gov-
ernment runs contrary to the fed-
eral constitution. He criticized the
supreme court for taking advantage
of the provisions in the law which
allowed it to render its opinion.
The "yellow dog" contract is an
agreement wheeby an !employer
prohibits an employee from doing
certain things, usually affiliating
with unions. It was because of the
decision, unfavorable to labor and
such a contract, that organized
labor opposed the nomination of
Judge J. J. Parker for a place on
the United States Supreme Court
bench recently.
An attempt by a group of 50
communists to gain entrance to the
convention hall was thwarted by
federation officials.
Prom, Frolic to Stay
as Separate Functions
Favoring the continuance of the
Frosh Frolic and the Soph Prom,
the Student council voted to retain
both social functions at their meet-
ing last night.
Discussion on the subject, which
was tabled from the meeting last
week, was limited to a compara-
tively few remarks after the coun-
cil had determined the amount of
sentiment, by both sophomores and
freshmen, in support of the dances.
Since both parties had, in the past,
been unsuccessful from a financial
viewpoint, and since little interest
had ever been shown for the Soph
Prom, the council was considering

either combining the two into an
underclass event or abolishing one
or the other. Student leaders of
both classeshowever, strongly op-
posed any such action.
The date for the Soph Prom has
been set for Dec. 5.

the chapel, some persons to help in
giving names to the victims, others
in profound grief and many promt-

A glimpse of the dead was denied
to all save those military officials
and relatives who might aid in
The interior of the chapel, ordin-
arily severe and cold in ancient
dignity, today was a bower of floral
tribute sent by persons from many
walks of life.
Tomorrow the bodies will be re-
moved to Westminster hall, adja-
cent to the Abbey. This venerable
building will then again become a
national shrine for the month, as
it was 20 years ago when King
Edward VII laysthere in state.
Westminster hall, which dates
from the time of Edward the Con-
fessor and has been the scene of
some of thehmost celebrated trials
in English history, will be open to;
the public on Friday morning, with
the bodies lying in state during the
whole day.
Memorial services willhbe in two
parts, in each of which separate'
creeds will have their part, each
paying homage to its dead.
The Church of England memorial
will be held in St. Paul's cathedral
and Westminster cathedral will be
the scene of a stately mass of
requiem by the church of Rome.

jamin, '32, and John Denler, '32, the
Student Council filled the two jun-
ior vacancies in their membership
at the second meeting of the year

tee Monday night to fill the open-
ings caused by the ineligibility of
two members elected last year.
Hugh Conklin, '32E, and Norman
Elizer, '32, were the defeated candi-
dates for office.
Because of the confusion hereto-
fore regarding the eligibility of class
officers, the council passed a reso-
lution providing that all candidates
for office will be required to pre-
sent an eligibility slip, secured from
the office of the Dean of Students,
before they can be chosen to any

Veterans Seek Legislation to End t
All Communistic Activities e
in United States a
(By Assoiatd HPres)V
BOSTON, Oct. 8. - The serious B
matter of a national convention oc- c
cupied the attention of the Amer-
ican Legion here today. The out-y
standing events of a five-hour ses-
sion were:
1. The choice of Detroit as the
1931 convention city.
2. The adoption of, resolutions
condemning the acts of vandalism
by hoodlums who took advantage of
the convention to spread disorder
last night.
Cheer Resolutions. I
The resolutions dealing w i t h
communism and that condemning
the activities of the hoodlums were
cheered. In the first, the Legion
endorsed the appointment of a spe-
cial Congressional committee now
investigating communists in the
country and urged that after it had i
reported, that Congress enact legi- d
slation to end all communistic ac-a
tivities in the United States. Thet
second rebuked those who tipped a
over automobiles, set fire to them,«
and engaged in street brawls with t
policemen and civilians late last
night and early today. The Legion g

Vote is Large.F
The fight for the next convention v
was between Detroit and Los An- b
geles with Wilbur M. Brucker, Re- t
publican nominee for governor of
Michigan and Mayor Frank Murphyt
of Detroit leading the fight for De-1
troit. John R. Quinn, past com-'i
mander, put forth the cause of Los n
Angeles. The vote was 658 to 570 F
in favor of Detroit and Quinn im-
mediately withdrewathe name of
Los Angeles and asked that Detroit
be unanimous.
Mayor Murphy's chief argumentg
for Detroit was that it was central-
ly located and easily reached fromX
all parts of the country.t

mperial Conference Proposes
Measure to Prevent
(By Asoiated Prss)
LONDON, Oct. 8.-Great Britain's'
mperial conference made plans to-
lay to build high tariff walls'
around the United Kingdom and
he dominions beyond the seas, as'
a protective measure against the
"economic blizzard" that has hit
he world.
It was J. H. Thomas for the home
government who called the present
epression a "blizzard" when he
)pened today's session but it was
Premier R. B. Bennett of Canada,
where they know how to deal with
blizzards, who took the center of
the conference stage.
Mr. Bennett quickly aroused in-
terest with a definite proposal of
10 per cent additional preference
n the Canadian market for the
mother country and for other em-
pire units which would return the
favor. A
Moreover, the Canadian prime
minister invited the empire dele-
gates to Ottawa next spring as
guests of the Canadian people for
he purposeof building a compre-
hensive system of British empire
preferential tariffs. There, in Ot-
towa, under the shadow of the
United States tariff wall, the em-
pire envoys would prepare their
own protective system.
Bennett spoke following Mr.
Thomas,who had inaugurated the
empire's economic survey. Spokes-
men of other empire units, Aus-
tralia, South Africa, Newfoundland,
the Irish Free State and India, one
after another, approved the gen-
eral principle of empire preference.

to Withdraw Vessels, Men
From Service.*
(By Associated Press)
WASHINGTON, Oct. 8.-The first3
big move of the United States Navy
to bring its fleet within the limita-
tions of the London Naval Treaty
was announced today by Admiral
William V. Pratt, chief of naval op-
His plan calls for the withdrawal
from service of 49 vessels and the
immediate reduction of 4800 men.
He said the navy would save $10,-
998,949 by the end of the 1932 fiscal
year under the new arrangement.
Admiral Platt said the greatest
reduction would be made in de-
stroyer units, each division of which
would be reduced from six to four
vessels. Submarine tonnage would
be kept to a figure within the 52,-
700 tons allowed by the treaty in
a program of decommissioning and
scrapping to prepare for replace-
Supplementing Admiral Pratt's
announcement, Rear Admiral John
Halligan, jr., assistant chief of nav-
al operations,said the changes
would result in saving of almost
four million and a half dollars dur-
ing the 1931fiscal year and over
$7,500,000 during the same period
for 1932.
I As a result of the new program, a
training squadron has been formed
from two battleships, the Arkansas
and Wyoming, and eight destroyers
to operate with the scouting fleet
in the Atlantic. Admiral Platt said
the squadron was created so that
fighting units might carry on their
operations without being involved
in training activities on visits to
local celebrations.
