U.S. Neutrality
Is Proclaimed
By Roosevelt
President Warns American
Travelers To Keep Off
Belligerents' Vessels
Reverses Old Policy
Coast Guard Will Begin
Enforcement Of Ban On
Arms Shipments
WASHINGTON, Oct. 7. -- A) -
The United States was fully em-
barked today upon a precedent-shat-
tering neutrality policy capped by a
formal proclamation by President
Roosevelt admonishing American
travelers to keep off vessels of Italy
and Ethiopia.
As the 17,000 men of the coast
guard and customs service took up
today the task of preventing any ship-
ments of American arms and muni-
tions to the two embattled nations,
diplomats in the world's capitals were
busy studying over the President's
triple move over the week-end.
Goes Beyond That
Besides proclaiming the embargo
and the warning to travelers -two
steps provided for in the recent neu-
trality legislation adopted by Con-
gress - the President went beyond
the text of that legislation in another
move. He declared in a statement
that Americans who engage in "trans-
actions of any character" with either
of the belligerents will "do so at their
own risk."
This marked a distinct reversal
of policy. In the past the United
States has argued for the right of
neutral citizens and commerce, to
"freedom of the seas." Passionate
controversy about deaths and in-
juries suffered by Americans and
about restrictions on American trade
preceded this :country's entry into
the World War.
The warning to travelers was is-
sued last night after the President
had made his other two moves late
Saturday night. Since Ethiopia has
no merchant marine, the latest proc-
lamation affects only the ships of
After quoting the authority con-
ferred upon him by the neutrality
law, the President proclaimed:
"Whereas I find that the protec-
tion of the lives of citizens of the
United States requires that American
citizens should refrain from travel-
ng as passengers on theavessels of
either of the belligerent nations;
Effect Uncertain
"Now therefore, I, Franklin D.
Roosevelt, President of the United
tates of America acting under and
by virtue of the authority vested in
me by the said joint resolution of
Congress, do hereby admonish all
citizens of the United States to ab-
stain from traveling on any vessel of
either of the belligerent nations con-
trary to the provisions of the said
joint resolution; and
"I do hereby give potice that any
citizen of the United States who may
travel on such vessel, contrary to the
provisions of the said joint resolution,
will do so at his own risk."
The effect of this proclamation on
the ships of Italy has yet to be cal-
culated. Dispatches from New York
quoted shipping men as saying that
the effect of the Italo-Eethiopian
quarrel already had been felt on pre-
vious trips of the Italian line's two
big express liners, the Rex and Conte
de Savoia. First class cabin lists on
those trips were described as smaller
than usual.

Ladies Must Have
Their Rights Says
A Michigan Co-ed
With all types of students applying
for National Youth Administration
jobs, those in charge of allocating'
work have had lots of humorous ex-
periences, but about the funniest was
that of the co-ed who told them she
would consent to take a job, but if
she didn't like it, she reserved the
right of quitting.
"Surely," she was told, "we don't
want to force work on you. We're
offering it to you because we thought
you needed it."
"I do," said the young lady very
determinedly, "but I'm not going to
do anything I don't like.
"In fact," she added, "I even got
return tickets when I came to this
school. If I don't like it, I'm going

has used neither her prerogative of
quitting nor her return tickets for

who can trace their heritage to the

its ancient beliefs. A common super-

dress all their daughters in boys'
clothes and they feel that with this
precaution the spirits are fooled.
