CAMBRIDGE, Mass., May 15.- (W)
-- Student editors of the Harvard
Lampoon, student humorous monthly,
tonight faced criminal action in con-
sequence of their published satire on
a nationally-known magazine which
yesterday was banned from newsstand
sale and barred from the mails.
Assistant District Attorney William
Andrew after a conference with Police
Chief Timothy Leahy announced the
case would be presented to the Mid-
dlesex County grand jury in June.
Chief Leahy said he believed the
magazine pictured nude and other
allegedly offensive matter and to be
obscene and lascivious.
While authorities investigated to
determine what students were re-
sponsible, editors of the Lampoon sat
in their offices and awaited develop-
"Well, our 4,500 copies are almost
a complete sellout," Stephen Burnett,
art director and treasurer of the
Lampoon, commented. "We don't
know yet whether we will publish
an expurgated edition or not. In
fact we are awaiting the officials'
next move."
The Lampoon editors said little
about the seizure of between 400 and
500 copies of the magazine in Provi-
dence, R. I., today. Although ad-
mitting that some of the student staff
had mailed the mazagines in the
Rhode Island city, Burnett tonight
did not know whether they would at-
tempt to reclaim the copies seized
by postal authorities.

PALO ALTO, Calif., May 15 -(A)-
Former President Herbert Hoover said
today that complete abolition of the
NRA is "the one right answer" which
the House of Representatives should
make to the Senate's action extending
its life.
"We do not construct new buildings

interview, "and we cannot build a

"Present NRA proposals are as bad,
in many ways, as the original with its
continuation until the next Congress
and with the Federal agents putting
pressure on State Legislatures to get
them to enact state laws in support
of NRA, it is evident there has been
no real retreat.
"This whole idea of ruling business
through code authorities with dele-
gated powers of law is un-American

practice. The codes are retarding re-

the dispute.
ROME, May 15.-(P) - Italian
newspapers openly demanded today
imposition of a new "organization''
on Ethiopia, which was taken by dip-
lomatic circles to mean civil or mili-
tary control by Italy.
The authoritative Giornale d'Italia,
which most often is chosen to echo
government plans, said Ethiopia's "in-
capacity to comprehend and assimi-

be given Ethiopian territory to an
organization which will deprive it of

partment, and the "blue bird" test car,
an old Chevrolet remodelled along
box-car lines for wind-tunnel experi-
ments, will be on exhibition. The

the program. Mr. Hanson directed

featured as soloist in the other parts

The young Metropolitan lyric so-
prano proved so popular with the
audience, which almost completely
filled Hill Auditorium, that following
one encore with the orchestra, she
had a piano brought onto the stage
and sang three further numbers with
Mabel Ross Rhead as accompanist.
Visibly moved by the stirring qual-

poem, "The Moldau" by Smetana with
