Move Pushed
By Germans
Baden State Government
Orders Dissolution Of
Youth Soiety
(By The Associated Press)
BERLIN, July 24. - The Bden
state government intensified the cam-
paign against "political Catholicism"
today ,announcing that the youth or-
ganization, Deutsche Jugendkraft
(German youth-strength), would be
dissolved and its property confiscated.
For the first time in the succession
of events leading to the Nazi fight
against Catholic youth organizations,
even indoor sports were forbidden.
Meanwhile, an independent inves-
tigation in Catholic Upper Silesia
revealed that the campaign of the
Hitler youth for attracting the grow-
ing generation to its banner already
had borne rich fruit and that the
Roman Catholic church there was
having difficulty in retaining its grip
outside devotional hours upon the
Catholic youth.
Steel Helmets Left Alone
The steel helmets - the German
war veterans' organization --thanks
to the personal intervention of Franz
Seldte, leader of the organization,
with Reichsfuehrer Hitler, seems as
a national body to have been given a
brief breathing spell, possibly until
Another "bund" of former service
men has been dissolved. It is the
Reich Federation of Baltic Fighters.
This federation, said to have been
made up mostly of German nationa-
lists, never merged with the accred-
ited formations of the Nazi party,
whereas the Steel Helmets did merge.
It is an'open secret that many of
these Nationalist fighters in the un-
official so-called free corps do not
approve of certain tendencies such as
presents of political jobs to Nazi
party members, and that they freely
vented their criticismhat their meet-
Meetig Forbidden
As the present policy of the Hitler
regime seems to be the wiping out of
every formation which might become
a center of dissension, the Free Corps
Fighters' Organization also fell under
the ban.
From Erfurt, word reached the
capital that despite Seldte's visit to
Hitler ,the tbcat adthorities forbade
the Erfurt Steel Helmet organization
to meet or to wear distintvie garbe
or badges.
Jews still bore the brunt of the
Nazi drive against "reactionaries."
The district leader of Solingen,
Friedrich Kari Florian, reiterating
the position that Nazism protects re-
ligion ,asserted in an article:
"It is a mere incident that there
are Catholic and Protestant Germans,
but foremost God wanted us to be
Germans. Anyhow, we wish the
churches full success and as much
demand that they collaborate with
us, not against us."

At Windsor Docks
WINDSOR, Ont., July 24. - (R) -
Stevedores employed by the Canada
Steamship lines and the Canadian
Pacific railway on the Windsor docks

20 cents. They are asking for pay

(By The Associated Press)
Sir Samuel Hoare, Great Britain's
foreign secretary, lauded the United
States government in an address to
the house of commons because of its
attitude on the dispute between Italy
and Ethiopia.
He promised "His Majesty's gov-
ernment will always be ready to co-
operate with the United States gov-
ernment in seeking to preserve
Authoritative British sources said
Great Britain would do its utmost at
Geneva to prevent action of non-
action by the League of Nations coun-
cil which would "legalize" the threat-
ened war.
The war ministry of Italy pro-
claimed today that every young Fas-
cist graduating from the Italian
youth movement at the age of 18 be-
comes a "soldier."
"From that day, he assumes obliga-
tions of military service which he will
satisfy, according to the scope of the
organizations of the regime, until he
is called to actual service," said war
ministry publications, establishing
regulations for pre-military age train-
The publications of the ministry,
mobilizing an army for East Africa
service, specified that in this pre-
liminary period the youth of Italy
would give a certain portion of each
week to military training and physi-
cal exercise until the regular con-
scription age of 21 was reached.
Recognition of the youths between
18 and 21 as soldiers, however, gave
the nation a heavy reserve of partly
trained men on whom it could draw
for action against Ethiopia.
Approximately 85 per cent of the
members of the Columbia University
(New York City) graduating class
have obtained positions.

SHANGHAI, July 24. - ()') - The
Hankow Red Cross society announced
today it had picked up 30,000 bodies
of persons drowned in the present
floods along the Han and Yangtze
rivers near Hankow alone and re-
ports from other points indicated a
far greater loss of life.
While Central China .turned to the
grewsome business of counting its
dead, which were piling. up by the
tens of thousands along the banks of
rivers from which flood waters were
receding, the northern provinces con-
tinued to battle the floods of the
Yellow River.
The Yellow River, crashing barrier
after barrier to swallow immense new
areas of fertile farmlands, has al-
ready 'blanketed more than 10,000
square miles of the Shantung coun-
Governor Han Fu Chu of Shan-
tung sent an urgent telegram to
Nanking reporting nearly 5,000,000 of
his people homeless.
The neighboring provinces of
Hopei, Honan and Shensi are also
seriously hit. Chinese press reports
say the refugees are clinging to the
remnants of dykes under a pitiless
mid-summer sun and dying like flies.
Efforts are being concentrated to
-prevent the spread of the water into
northern Kiangsu province, where a
farming population of 1,000,000 in
the low lying districts surrounding
Hinghwa is menaced.
The most strenuous labors failed to
forestall the collapse of the dykes
surrounding Hanyant lake on the
Shantung-Kiangsu border, where the
waters stood eight feet higher than
the neighboring land. When the
barriers~ went out, the flood deluged
