SHANGHAI, Sept. 30.-W--Chi-

of western provincial war lords were
ordered into action today in an ap-

against Japanese invaders.
Two hundred thousand more Chi-

join their former enemies, Chinese

Japanese were reported continuing
their advances in the north. But
around Shanghai, terrific Japanese
assaults failed to budge the en-
trenched Chinese armies. A Japanese
spokesman admitted Nippon's forces
had made only slight gains.
Far to the south, Chinese reported
Japanese warships had destroyed a
fleet of Chinese junks at Swatow.
Nanking, China's capital, had its
third day of respite from Japanese
bombardment. Officials said they be-
lieved Japanese withheld their raid-'
ers because of hostile world opinion.
(A Japanese spokesman at Geneva
said bombardment of Chinese cen-
ters will continue, if necessary. In
London, the British Labor Party
planned to demand an emergency
session of Parliament as the first
step toward a world boycott of Jap-
anese goods.
(An informed source in London
said British colonial authorities at
Hongkong had opened an inquiry
into the reported sinking of a fleet
of Chinese fishing junks by a Jap-
anese sub~marine.)
Canton, like Nanking, had respite
from Japanese bombardments. North
of Canton, however, a school, several
houses, and a Confucian hall were
reported destroyed at Tsingyuen. Ci-
vilian casualties there were estimated
to number 200.

Mussolini told the cheering throng

are joined to seek a "rebirth of Eu-
In one of the shortest speeches Il
Duce ever has made, he proclaimed:
"Blackshirts-I bring a profound
and indelible memory of my conver-
ations with the Fuehrer of Germany.
Italian and German friendship, con-
secrated in the policy of the Rome-
Berlin axis, has become engraved on
the heart of two nations in these days
and there it will remain.
"Theobjects of this friendship are
strict solidarity between the two rev-
olutions Fascist and Nazi, the rebirth
of Europe and peace between the peo-
ples worthy of the name."
(In Berlin, Mussolini had predict-
ed Europe would turn Fascist. He had
joined with Hitler in renewed denun-
ciation of Communism.)

of more than two to one.
The balloting, conducted by the
city election commission, showed 1,-
052 votes for the Labor League and
507 for the Gas and By-Products
Coke Workers' Union, a CIO affiliate.
The American Labor League and
the Employes' Association formed a
single unit to oppose the CIO group.
Martin Wagner, international vice-
president of the CIO union, issued a
statement after the result of the elec-
tion was announced in which he
charged irregularities.
"We consider the vote just a tem-
porary setback and we are investigat-
ing gross irregularities in connection
with the election," Wagner said.
From the victors' camp came a
statement by the Labor League at-
torney, William McDowell.
"This shows that employes can do
for themselves without help from an
outside organization," he said. "It
just goes to show that there can be
executives as well as politicians
among employes."

resolution which would pin the fate

Accepted after two hours and a

recommended an end to non-inter-

ians serving with Insurgent forces.
Delegates of Austria, Hungary,
Bulgaria, Portugal, South Africa, and
the Irish Free State opposed the res-.
olution on various grounds. Debate
centered on the section which said

that if negotiations for withdrawa
of foreign combatants failed, mem-
bers of the League which are parties
to the Spanish non-intervention
agrement "will consider ending the
policy" of non-intervention.
President Eamon De Valera of the
Irish Free State objected that the
section was a "threat" and said his
government intended to preserve the
policy of non-intervention.

WASHINGTON, Sept. 30.--(T)--
Associate Justice\Hugo L. Black will
ask the public 'tomorrow night to
judge his fitness for membership on
the Supreme Court.
For the first time, he will reply
to those who accuse him of affiliation
with the Ku Klux Klan and contend
that he thereby is disqualified for
service upon the nation's highest

bers within the glistening marble.

itself, his words will be carried to
the distant corners of the country
by the National, Columbia and Mu-
tual broadcasting networks.
Talk Will Be Precedent
It will be the first time a member
of the court ever has delivered a
radio speech of a controversial na-
ture while in office. Never has such a
speech originated from the court
What Black will say furnished a
subject for excited speculation to-
night. Will he deny the charges?
Will he produce evidence that he
long since severed any connection
with the hooded order? Will he seek
to disprove the newspaper articles
saying he is a life member? These
questions predominated.
As yesterday, when 60 reporters
besieged him with questions upon
his return from Europe, Black uttered
no public word today about the Klan
charges. He could not be reached
at the home of Clifford Durr, a gov-
ernment attorney, where he and Mrs.
Black are staying temporarily. Nor
did he appear at the Capitol, or Court
A 'close friend of the Justice said
he left the Durr home early in the

somewhere and work on his state-

Scheduled For 9:30
Arrangements for the radio speech
were made through Durr. Kenneth
H. Berkeley, Washington manager
for the National Broadcasting Com-
pany, sent for reporters at noon and
made the announcement.
The speech is scheduled to go on
the air at 9:30 p.m., Eastern Stand-
ard Time, and while Black plans
to speak for but 20 minutes, a full
half-hour has been reserved for him,
so that if he should wish to expand
his remarks a longer time will be
The place from which the justice
speaks will not be decided until to-
morrow, the broadcast official said,
but it might be from the Durr home,
from a Washington hotel, or:
"Perhaps, he may speak from his
office in the Supreme Court building.
He has several places in mind."
2nd Car Abandoned
By Bandits Is Found
MIDLAND, Mich., Sept. 30.-(P)-
With a second abandoned automobile
as a clue, officers sought tonight to
clear up all ramifications of an at-
tempted bank robbery here Wednes-
day in which one gunman was killed
and another wounded.
The second automobile was found
eight miles south of Corunna, in
Shiawassee county, at noon today.
A letter in it, addressed to Jack Gra-
cey, of Hamtramck, the dead robber,
apparently connected it definitely
with the robbery attempt.
The license plates on the motor car
were issued to Steve Kalisz, also of
Hamtramck. Kalisz was being ques-
tioned here by state police and sher-
iff's officers when the discovery was
reported. He said he knew Gracey
and Anthony Chebatoris, thehwound-
ed robber, and that Gracey had bor-
rowed his automobile, but denied he
knew of the robbery plans.

WASHINGTON, Sept. 30.-UP._
The United States and Japan reached
a diplomatic deadlock tonight over
the question of responsibility for in-
jury to Americans and American
property in China.
The Tokyo government capped an
exchange of notes by refusing to ac-
knowledge liability. The Unitedt
States previously had warned Japan
repeatedly that it would be held ac-
countable for damage resulting from
its military operations.
The expression concerning liability
was only one phase of Japan's reply
to a sharp American protest against
the bombing of Chinese non-combat-
