The trial of Gen. Sanjurjo and

he hoped to complete it speedily, per-

The general expectation was, how-

of his fame as a soldier.

Marconi Bends
Short Waves
In New Radio
Perfects Communication
System Capable of Long
Distance Transmission
ROME, Aug. 13.-(P/)-Guglielmo4
Marconi announced today he had fl-
nally succeeded in "bending" ultra
short radio waves so that he will be
able to utilze his newest means of
communication at longer distance
than previously was possible because
heretofore he was unable to trans-
mit through obstacles.
His latest perfection has enabled
him to overcome the earth's curva-
ture, which is proof, he said, that
ultra short waves are not definitely
limited by all obstacles.
Marconi announced his discovery
in a radiogram from his yacht Elec-
tra in the Gulf of Aranci at the
northern tip of Sardinia. He said
he had used an ultra short wave ap-
paratus of low power utilizing 57
centimeter waves and pqrtable re-
flectors, communicating clearly both
by radio telegraph and radio tele-
phone from Rocca Di Papa to Capo
Figari, a distance of 270 kilometers.

President Confers withr
Cabinet on Coming Eco-

WASHINGTON, Aug. 13. -(P) -
Dropping for the time being the poli-
tical activities which have engrossedt
him for several days, President Hoo-
ver today directed his activities to-
ward Governmental affairs and ther
Economic Conference he is planning
in an effort to stimulate business.
Several Cabinet officers were call-
ed in, one after another, by the
Chief Executive for discussions cen-
tering about these two topics.E
Roy D. Chapin, the new Secretaryj
of Commerce, said he had discussed
plans for the General Business Con-
ference with Mr. Hoover, but saidj
the White House itself would have
to be the only source of informa-
tion concerning it.
"All I can say," Chapin added, "is
that the President has a very definite
and a very fine plan, and I think
the business men of the Country are
going to like it."
.Chapin said he assured Mr. Hoo-
ver that he found the Commerce
Department in excellent condition,
with "the personnel about as effi-
cient as one could imagine."
In order to be more closely in
touch with affairs, the President
abandoned his customary week-end
vacation at his Rapidan Mountain
Camp. Tomorrow he is scheduled to
dedicate a statue here to the late
Cardinal Gibbons, of Baltimore.

Refuses Special Post
Hitler had been offered the post
of vice-chancellor, a post which
would be created especially for him
and would include the office of pre-
mier of Prussia, which has been va-
cant since the national government
imposed a virtual dictatorship in
Hitler rejected that. Chancellor
Franoz von Papen next offered cabi-
net posts to some of Hitler's lieuten-
ants. Hitler refused that.
To Hitler's claim that his party's
size entitled him to exclusive power
-in other words, the right to erect
a Fascist dictatorship-President von
Hindenburg then imposed his duty
to his conscience and to the Father-
land to goven Germany impartially
and not in the interests of one move-
ment, however large and formidable.
Returns to Summer Home
Having failed in a plea to Hitler
to make good pre-election promises
to support the presidential govern-
ment, the aging von Hindenburg
ended his historic audience with the
fatherly words of admonition and
lost no time in assuring Chancellor
von Papen that he backed him to the
full in the days ahead, during which
most important tasks await the cab-
To a nation excited over reports
from abroad that Hitler's storm
troops would attempt to seize power
by force, the president then gave an
example of undaunted confidence by
taking a night train to his summer
home at Neudeck, East Prussia.

LOS ANGELES, Aug. 13.--()-
It took an architect, a chamber
of commerce secretary and rail-
road official to get Eddie Tolan,
newly crowned 100-meter and 200-
meter Olympic champion, out of
town today..
While preparing to leave for De-
troit, the Negro athlete packed
his railroad ticket in his trunk
and did not discover it until the
trunk was well on its way east.
He appealed to P. R. Williams,
Negro architect,twho in turn asked
the advice of A. G. Arnoll, cham-
ber of Commerce secretary. Arnoll
took the case higher and appealed
to railroad officials.
They gave Tolan another ticket
on his promise he would mail the
other back on his arrival home.

Republican Heads1
President's Plan
Vote in December


WASHINGTON, Aug. 13. - (1P))
Spurred by President Hoover's call
for prohibition reform, leaders of the
Senate Republican majority intended
to go to work on the eighteenth
amendment at the coming December
session. ..
Senator Monary, of Oregon, the
assistant Republican leader, says the
order of business when the Senate
reconvenes is a vote on taking up
prohibition repeal.
The pending motion and proposal
is one advanced by Senator Glass,
Virginia Democrat, who asserted last
night that Mr. Hoover's prohibition
recommendation "is identical with
the proposal offered by me." He
facetiously denied writing this sec-
tion of the President's address.
Republicans, now intent on set-
tling the congressional end of the
prohibition controversy before the
inauguration next March 4, previous-
ly have contended that Glass offered
their party platform proposal.
President Hoover is fully expected
by capitol leaders to recommend to
the Congress in December immediate
action on his idea for state liquor
control with a Federal guarantee
against the saloons and protection
of dry states.
