Hauptmann Case Will Be
Delayed If 'Plausible'
Evidence Is Found,-

Detective Parker Believes

'Not The Man'
TRENTON, N. J., Dec. 6.-(P) -
A source close to Gov. Harold G. Hoff-
man disclosed today that the gov-
ernor is determined to "see that jus-
tice is done" in the Lindbergh kidnap-
slaying and will delay Bruno Rich-
ard Hauptmann's execution if any
"plausible" evidence is produced in
the condemned man's favor.
The governor said that Ellis H.
Parker, noted Burlington county, de-
tective, reputedly refused cooperation
by the New Jersey state police, is
working on the case and that Parker
is "under the definite impression that
Hauptmann is not the man."
Parker was reported impressed by
a letter received by the Trenton chief
of police shortly after the kidnaping
directing him to follow telephone
wires from Hopewell, the Lindbergh
home, to the Lindbergh baby.
Hauptmann Silent
Parker, who is 62 years old and has
had a high percentage of successes
in homicide cases, could not be
reached today and was reported
hunting ducks around Barnegat Bay.
Gov. Hoffman visited Hauptmann
in the death house of state prison the
night of Oct. 17. He declined to dis-
cuss the details of the call and
Hauptmann was silent today about
his visit, his attorney, C. Lloyd Fisher,
said.

By Cordell Hull
Diplomatic Immunity Does!
Not Give Total Freedom
From Laws,_Says Official
WASHINGTON, Dec. 6. - (P) - A
plain hint was given foreign envoys
by Secretary Cordell Hull today that
the United States expects them to
observe this Country's laws, notwith-
standing their privilege of diplomatic
immunity.
He made it in a statement an-
nouncing apologies had been tendered
to Ghaffar Djalal, Iran's (Persia's)
minister, for his arrest Nov. 27 at
Elkton, Md., on a speeding charge.
Djalal protested that he was
handcuffed and treated discourteous-
ly and demanded punishment for the
arresting officers.
The formal apologies of Gov. Har-
ry Nice, of Maryland, together with
an expression of regret by the United
States Government, were transmitted
to the envoy.
Assurance also was given by the
Governor that the two officers who
arrested Djalal had been fined for
assault and discharged.
In announcing this at his press con-
ference, Hull remarked that this Gov-
ernment impresses upon its represen-

:,aizations or private militias" and
political uniforms, insignias and
arms. The other two would increase
the penalties for illegal possession of
10e,,,(;cns and provide for prosecution
of publications which "incite to mur-

Open Assembly To Decide
Official Stand On Taking
Fart In Olympics
NEW YORK, Dec. 7. - (gP) - After
wrestling all day with the highly
charged issue of American participa-
tion in the 1936 Olympic games, the
executive committee of the Amateur
Athletic Union decided tonight to
place it squarely before the open as-
zembly of the annual convention to-
morrow.
The committee, with President
Jeremiah T. Mahoney in the chair,
voted 10 to 5 to refer to the con-,
vention, without recommendation, aI
strongly worded resolution condemn-
ing Germany's alleged discrimina-i
tion against the Jewish athletes, and
calling upon the AAU to withdraw
support from as well as actively to
oppose holding the Olympics in Ber-
lin.
This vote followed a dead-lock on
the motion to refer the resolution,,
"favorably" to the board of the con-
vention. The committee ballot
showed seven members favoring, and
seven opposing a definite stand on the
Olympic boycott issue, but President
Mahoney casting the tying vote was
for the anti-Nazi group, after Daniel
J. Ferris, secretary-treasurer, re-
frained from voting.

'Paints' Used By Coeds
WotdCover 4 Barns
MADISON, Wis., Dec. 6. - (A) -
University of Wisconsin coeds use
enough lipstick a year to paint "four
good-sized barns."
A reporter for the Daily Cardinal,
student publication, said today he
had found this out by cajoling co-eds
to press their rouge-coated lips to a
graph paper.
Then he took the average lip-cov-
erage-83,000 square inches --mul-
tiplied it by 32, the average fre-
quency of application per week, the
total was multiplied by the num-
ber of weeks in the year.
Result: Annual coverage per co-ed
of 9.68 square feet. This times 2,875,
gives 27,800 feet; and this is "enough
to cover four barns," he calculated.
U. S. Neutrality
Is Reaffirmed
By Roosevelt
Publication Of Nov. 14
Letter To Bishop Is Seen
As Emphasis Of Stand
WASHINGTON, Dec. 6. - (/P)-
Declaring formally that the United
States 'should not let the world
down" in the current war crisis, Pres-
ident Roosevelt asserted at the same
time today that this country already
has done "its share toward the res-
toration of peace."'
The President's statement, made
in a letter Nov. 14 to Bishop G. Ash-
ton Oldham, of the Episcopal diocese
of Albany, but published only today,
quickly was interpreted here as prin-
cipally a reaffirmation of the Ad-
ministration's neutrality policy.
Informed quarters here were equally
quick to contend, however, that the
statement did not mean a departure
from the traditional policy of avoid-
ing foreign entanglements.
Least of all could it be interpreted,
these same sources said, as any ack-
nowledgement that this Government,
consciously has participated in any
concerted international effort to end
the Italo-Ethiopian war by sanctions.
In this regard, it was noted that
the President stated that this Gov-
ernment in a number of respects ac-
tually has "gone beyond the actions
so far taken by other nations."
The Administration's course from
the outset has been one of rigid sep-
arate and independent action, re-
gardless of what other nations may
do, with the twofold object of keep-
ing the United States out of war and
avoiding as far as possible contribut-
ing to a prolongation of it. There
has been no change in this policy, of-
ficials said.
The President's letter to Bishop
Oldham was written in reply to one
from the churchman late in October
declaring that America should "not
let the world down" by standing aloof
in the East African war situation.

The 100-piece Varsity R.O.T.C.

Detroit to play for the annual Foot-
ball Bust to be held in the Hotel
Statler.

The members of the 1935 football
squad will be feted at the bust which
is sponsored every year by the Detroit
alumni. In the past, it has been
the custom to have several of the
prominent alumni who have played
on the team in the past years ad-
dress the annual affair.
Practically all the members of the
coaching staff will also be present
at the bust, and Coach Harry Kipke

The American hospital at Dessye

Press, the New York Times, Reute;.s,

Since the war began, Selassie said,
"it has been evidenced to us that
the Italian government has adopted
a policy of destroying our people, not
by the use of its own troops but solely
by mechanical means and native
troops recruited in Italian colonies.
"The Italian government may, in-
deed, consider itself authorized to
bombard us when we go out to share
the sufferings of our soldiers and to
defend our soil.
"But certainly not bombardment of
open towns as Dabab, Gondar and
numerous villages inhabited by non-
combatants, and containing neither
troops or means of defense. The
killing of women and children andI
the bombardment of Red Cross Hos-

IMPERIAL ETHIOPIAN HEAD-
QUARTERS, DESSYE, Ethiopia, Dec.
6. - UP()- The Fascist invaders car-
ried war to the very throne of Em-
peror Haile Selassie today when nine
huge planes circled three times over
the city and dropped more than 1,000
bombs, leaving a dozen - dead and
nearly 200 wounded.
The American Hospital, Red Cross
tents and the Imperial Palace, recent-
ly occupied by Selassie as military
headquarters, were damaged by
bombs and a large part of the town
was laid waste.
Selassie himself, an expert marks-
man, seized a machine gun and
poured a stream of lead into the sky,
but the planes made their escape after
raking the streets with their own ma-
chinegun fire.
The King of Kings escaped un-
scathed, taking refuge in the old Ital-
ian consulate after exhausting his
supply of ammunition.
Roaring over the horizon, their silv-
er bodies gleaming in the morning
sun, the Fascist planes threw the
civil population of Dessye into a pan-
ic. The raid came at exactly 8 a.m.
Women And Children Hit
Many women and children were
among the dead and wounded.
One ward of ' the American Sev-
enth-Day Adventist Hospital was
wrecked. Pounded by 100 bombs,
the Emperor's palae was badly dam-
aged.
Miss Petra Hovig, d Norwegian
nurse, suffered a broken leg. The

Selassie Mans Gun When Italian
Planes Rain Fire OnEthiopians
The bombing by Fascist planes of the American Red Cross hospital
at Dessye, scene of the most bloody battle of the Italo-Ethiopian war, was
protested to the League of Nations early today by Emperor Haile Selassie.
The emperor charged that the Italian army, which carried yesterday's
"big push" to the Ethiopian field headquarters, "undeniably violated
international law" by killing women and children and bombarding Red
Cross hospitals.
Haile Selassie himself took charge of the defense, manning a
machine gun, in an attempt to drive the death-dealing planes from the
skies. More than 12 were reported killed and 200 pounded in the en-
counter.
GENEVA, Dec. 7. - (Saturday) - (A.P.) - Ethiopia's emperor,
emerging unscathed from the Dessye, his imperial battle headquarters,
protested bitterly to the League of Nations early today against "the killing
of women and children and bombardment of Red Cross hospitals" by
Italian war planes.

Africa. Farmers have pledged them-
selves to feed the nation.
Fascism remained obdurate despite
the peace overture voiced yesterday
by Sir Samuel Hoare, British for-
eign secretary, in an address before
the House of Commons.
Hoare's speech, a government
spokesman declared, "presented no
new element which can justify a
change in the situation. It is known
that the Italian viewpoint has not
changed."
Thus another fiery appeal to the
nation by Il Duce was anticipated to-
morrow. His words will be broadcast
into every town and village.
Mussolini \is represented as deter-
mined to settle the crisis in his own
way. His way is a crushing victory
over Ethiopia, with Emperor Haile
Selassie sueing for peace.
Report Plan Of
Compromise In
Chinese Crisis
PEIPING, Dec. 6. --(P) -A ten-
tative compromise agreeement in
North China's autonomy crisis was
reported unofficially tonight to have
been reached.
The Rengo (Japanese) News
Agency said that the plan would be
submitted to Maj. Gen. Mayao Tada,
Japanese military commander in
North China, and to the Nanking
Government and is subject to their
approval.
Rengo's report came after 17 Jap-
anese airplanes had roared over this
city, center of the crisis, during the
day.
Creation of a North China Com-
mission, it was stated, is provided in
the compromise plan. This commis-
sion would be given wide powers of
self-government and the new Nan-
king currency reform program, in-
volving nationalization of silver,
would not be applicable to the region.
Japan strongly opposes the currency
plan.

Auto Deaths Reach

LANSING, Dec. 6. - (P) - The
death toll of accidents on Michigan
highways this year reached 1,476 to-
day -just 26 less than the number
killed in the full year of 1934.
Dr. W. J. V. Deacon, director of
records and statistics for the state
health department, counted the No-
vember dead at 134. He said still
unreported accidents might increase
the figures by six or more.
The total for November, a month
in which state wide traffic safety cam-
paigns were conducted, was well be-
low the toll of 168 exacted by motor
cars in October and 156 in November
