Five-Hour Plea Tf o jury
MOSCOW, March 11,--(AP)-Death
for 19 of the 21 defendants in Rus-
sia's greatest blood purge trial was
demanded today by Prosecutor An-
drei Y. Vishinsky at the climax of a,
furious summation of tr'eason and
murder charges.
For five and a half hours, in the
glare of floodlights, the prosecutor
packed in details of the prisoners'
confessed plots, calling them "human
scum" and unscrupulous tools of for-
eign intelligence services.
The burden df his whole review
was that the Soviet exists within a
ring of enemies and the plotters
sought to hand over to them the keys
to Russia's frontiers.

out of the way. But Russia,, thank
God, is not America."
Pleas Heard Tomorrow
He spared Rakovsky because the
former diplomat, lone; in exile, had
been "out of contact with the reali-
ties" despite his confession of spy-
ing for Great Britain and Japan.
Vishinsky said Bessanoff had
played only a. minor role as conltact

former Soviet warlord, and Nicholas

Nazi leader, was appointed to succeed
The appointment -was announced
officially early today, after two days
of strife, rioting, troop mobilization
and bloodshed.
The new cabinet, all but two of
whom were Nazis, was announced as
Seysz-Inquart, Chancellor and de-
fense minister.
Wilhelm Wolff, foreign affairs.
Franz Hueber, justice. Hueber is a
brother-in-law of Germany's number

Asks German Troops
Earlier, Seysz-Inquart had sent a
telegram to Hitler saying that the
"provisional Austrian Government"
requested Germany to send troops as
soon as possible to assist it in "pre-
venting the shedding of blood."
The new Chancellor was one of five
Nazi sympathizers included in the
cabinet at Hitler's order Feb. 15. He
started formation of a cabinet which
the press bureau declared would give
"thorough recognition to national-
Tonight's developments came after
moves and counter-moves by Schus-
chnigg and the Nazi command. There
was violence throughout Austria
Thursday and Friday.
Early today German troops mobil-
ized near the Austrian border. Austria
likewise sent troops to danger points.
Schuschnigg had his regular army of
70,000, but called out 100,000 reserves
and 30,000 guardsmen.
Vienna and many Austrian cities
were in turmoil, with Nazis and
Schuschnigg clashing over a plebis-
cite on Austrian independence Schus-
chnigg had ordered for Sunday.
Nazis Attack Plebiscite
Nazis denounced it vehemently,
claiming it was violation of Schus-
chnigg's agreement with Hitler at
Berchtesgaden Feb. 12.
As tension increased, schuschnigg
postponed the plebiscite indefinitely.
Then, Schuschnigg announced that,
bowing to the German ultimatum,
a new government was being formed.
He declared that "to prevent the
shedding of blood" orders had been
given for Austrian troops to fall
back "in case of invasion."
Before midnight the Nazi swastika
flew from the Chancellery and the
City Hall.
Vienna Nazis went wild.
While Schuschnigg, President Mik-
las and Seysz-Inquart were in con-
ference and before appointment of
the new Chancellor had been an-
nounced, many police and minor offi-
cials openly avowed their switch to
the Nazi cause,

Premier-Designate Leon Blum,

of all parties from Communist to ex-

Sources close to the Socialist lead-
er said the cabinet would be or-
ganized by early tomorrow and would
be ready to deal with events in Aus-
tria. Besides the critical situation in
central Europe, Blum was confronted
with a difficult financial problem
and labor unrest at home.
Although the People's F r o n t
showed signs of cracking under the
strain of events in Austria, its three
main components-Socialists, Com-
munists, Radical-Socialists-as well
as Socialist-Repubicans all agreed to
the National Union.

PRAHA, Czechoslovakia, March 11.
-P)-2The Czechoslovakian Cabinet
met in special session tonight to con-
sider the general situation in con-
nection with events in Austria.
The impression prevailed in some
quarters that the Nazification of Aus-
tria was not the private concern of
that neighboring state, but a matter
affecting all western powers.
Reports from Bratislava, on the
Austrian-Czechoslovakia border about
40 miles from Vienna, said trains and
automobiles arriving there were filled
with refugees from Vienna.

WASHINGTON, March 11.-(1P-
Officials anxiously studied develop

Taking their lead from Secretary
of State Hull, they refrained from
placing the United States in the posi-
tion of taking sides.
The secretary said he had con-
ferred with the President in the last
two days on the situation in Central
Europe, but without formulating a
special policy.
He denied emphatically a rumor
that the United States had urged
