After Strike On
Island Of Crete
Thirty Wounded When
Labor Strike Becomes
Riot; Use Martial Law
LONDON, Aug. 5. - (P) - The Ath-
ens correspondent of Reuters (Brit-
ish) news agency reported today that
Gen. Bakopoulos had advised the gov-
ernment that order was restored. in
Crete and that the strikers had
agreed to disperse peacefully.
ATHENS, Aug. 5. - (P) - Thirty
persons, including five policemen,
were reported wounded today as a
rebellion broke out in Candia (Era-
kleion,) Crete. Martial law was de-
clared and the government dispatched
two destroyers and soldiers to re-
store order.
The rebellion originated from a
labor strike which turned into riot-
ing. The government asserted the
disorders were inspired by adherents
of former Premier Eleutherios Veni-
zelos, who led an unsuccessful rebel-
ion in Crete and Macedonia last
spring.
The reported 30 casualties occurred
as the demonstrators sacked the ad-
ministrative offes in the Cretan city.
Planes Dispatched
A squadron of bombing planes was
dispatched by the government to as-
sist the local authorities, who were
augmented by troops garrisoned
there, in suppressing "at any cost"
the rebellion. Four thousand striking
.workmen were alleged to be partici-
pating in the uprising.
Gen. George Kondylis, minister of
war, who was the chief personality in
suppressing the rebellion of last
M[arch, issued government orders to-
day in the absence of Premier Panay-
oti Tsaldaris, who is in Germany for
his health.
He ordered Gen. Bakopoulos, as-
signed to the trouble zone, to try
other means of restoring order before
firing on the demonstrators.
Bakopoulos reported the demon-
strators had ignored all orders to
disperse.
The trouble began five days ago as
a labor strike, but government sources
said the strike was essentially political
and was caused by adherents of Veni-
zelos.
These sources said the strikers had
procured arms and ammunition and
had fired on the police who, althongh
aided by troops, were insufficient to
maintain order.
Official reports said the .trouble be-
gan yesterday with street riots and
that widespread shooting had occur-
red today.
115 ARRESTED
LONDON, Aug. 5. -(P)- A Reut-
ers (British) news agency dispatch
from Paris today saidtGreek police
had suppressed an attempt by 25
Greek soldiers to revolt in the air
force camp at Athens.
The dispatch said one of the sol-
diers had fired on the police but that
15 of the alleged rebels had been
arrested while the other 10 fled.
Greyhound And
Tilly Tonka Are
Made Favorites
Horses Chalk Up Time
Considered Capable Of
Winning Hambletonian
GOSHEN, N. Y., Aug. 5. - (P)-It's

Greyhound vs. Tilly Tonka, according
to the early railbirds, in that annual
"Kentugky derby of the harness
world," the $40,000 Hambletonian
stakes, scheduled for Will Crane's
Good Time park here August 14.
Greyhound, owned by E. J. Baker
of St. Charles, Ill., and driven by
Sep Palin, veteran Indianapolis sulky-
sitter, thundered around Thorncliffe
track in Toronto in 2:02%/, a half-
second better than Lord Jim did in
winning the 1934 Hambletonian. In
adidtion, Greyhound in this race con-
quered Tilly Tonka, Lawrence Han-
over, Prince John and other Hamble-
tonian eligibles, in spite of a bad start.
Tilly Tonka, however, the only en-
try in the Hambletonian with a form-
er winner of the race as her sire
(Spencer, victor in 1Q28) apparently
was not extended in copping second
spot in two heats of the Toronto dress
rehearsal. Withdrawn from the third
heat because of two heavy engage-
ments awaiting her at Rockingham
park, Tilly Tonka is depended on by
Fred Egan, her trainer, to help him
regain the glory he lost in 1933 when
Brown Berry stumbled in the stretch
just as victory was near.
Lawrence Hanover, pulling down
second money at Thorncliffe, with
Prince John earning third, also may
prove tough for Greyhound. That
world records will skid into the dis-
card August 14 seems a distinct pos-
sibility, with 10 to 12 starters, all
owning fast records, assured.

But Measure May Be Sent
To The House Without
A Recommendation
WASHINGTON, Aug. 5. - P) -- A
possibility that the Guffey coal sta-
bilization bill might be reported to
the House without a recommendation
was conceded today by Rep. Robert
L. Doughton, Dem.), chairman of the
House Ways and Means Committee.
Doughton made that assertion after
a scheduled committee meeting today
had been called off because, he said,
of the absence of some members.
He said the full committee would
consider the bill Tuesday. He added,
however, that there was "considerable
opposition" to. the measure in the
committee.
A Ways and Means Subcommittee,
headed by Rep. Samuel B. Hill (Dem.)
Washington, has reported the bill to
the full committee without recom-
mendation execpt that Title 2 be
eliminated. That is the title author-
izing a $300,000,000 appropriation for
the Federal Government to purchase
coal mines and keep them out of
production.
The subcommittee took that action
after President Roosevelt in a per-
sonal letter to Hill, suggested that
the committee not let its doubts as
to the constitutionality of the bill,
"however reasonable," stand in the
way of the legislation.
The constitutional question, the
President added, was one which he
believed should be left to the courts.

Controversy Over Cartoon
Breaks Into Vacation Of
Japanese Ambassador
WASHINGTON, Aug. 5. - (0P?-
The resentmen in Japan about an
American magazine caricature of
Emperor Hirohito engaged the earn-
est attention of the officials of two
nations today.
His vacation interrupted, Hirosi
Saito, Japanese ambassador, hurried
here from Connecticut to prepare a
report for his home office and to re-
ceive expected instructions-from To-
kyo.
State Department officials indicat-
ed a belief that no formal protest
would be filed because of the cartoon
in Vanity Fair. In some other quar-
ters it was believed Saito would take
up the issue directly wth the maga-
zine's editors.
One State Department spokesman
said Japanese officials realized that
the American government had no
control over the press, but cable dis-
patches said Japanese newspapers
criticized their embassy here for al-
leged failure to see that "such in-
dignities" were not published.
The dispatches also reported that
the Japanese home and foreign of-
fice officials characterized the carica-
ture 's "terrible." Tt showed the

ATLANTIC CITY, N. J., Aug. 5. -
(P) - William Green, president of the
American Federation of Labor, here
today to preside at a meeting of the
Federation's executive council, pre-
dicted a militant drive to expel from
the organization communists who
are under orders from Moscow."
"When it is clearly proven that a
member of one of our unions is a
red carrying out Moscow's orders," he
said, "the union will be called upon
to expel him.",
The Federation chief charged com-
munists are undermining confidence
in the trade union movement, foment-
ing 'strife and urging and inspiring
violence.
30,000 Reds
"The American delegation reported
to the Communist Congress in Mos-
cow last week that there now were
30,000 reds in this country," Green
said.
"While that number in comparison
with the membership of the A.F. of
L. is inconsequential, never-the-less
they are distributed among our trade
unions and each is assigned a special
task."
Green said the council would con-
sider how to deal with the communist
problem in general, and particularly
with the recent amalgamation of
Danish Treasure Legend True
HEILSMINDE, Denmark - (P) -
For generations a legend has persist-

Hugh S. Johnson, former NRA
chief and now head of New York
work relief, might confer with the
council this aftenoon on the protests
of Federation unions against the se-
curity wages on relief projects, Green
said.
Jurisdictional Dispute
The council's first job was to at-
tempt to settle jurisdictional dis-
putes between moulders' and foundry
workers' unions. Efforts to amalga-
mate the unions, Green said, have
been unsuccessful.
Most of the council's 18 members
were on hand for the opening session.
Among absentees was John L. Lewis,
scrappy chief of the United Mine
Workers. He is expected to renew his
fight for industrial unionization of
mass production industries when he
arrives later this week.
Lewis contends that industries such
as steel and automobiles should have
unions embracing all the workers in
them, instead of dividing the workers
among the various craft unions.
Any council action on this issue
would have an important bearing
on future federation policy.

Japan To Sell
Ethiopia Arms,
Repo-t Claims
Two Nations Sign Contract
For Supply Of Guns To
Modernize Army
LONDON, Aug. 5.- (P)-The Ex-
change Telegraph correspondent at
Addis Ababa reported that he learned
today Japan signed a contract Friday
to supply a "very heavy consignment"
of arms and ammunition for moderni-
zation of the Ethiopian army.
Arrangements were said to be com-
plete for dispatch of a Japanese mil-
itary and commercial mission to Ethi-
opia.
British circles said today that the
chances of staving off an East Af-
rican war by territorial or economic
concessions to Italy are likely to get
a thorough airing at secret tri-power
negotiations next week in Paris.
Main Objcct
Diplomatic quarters recognized that
the main purpose of diverting the dis-
pute from the public forum at Geneva
to private deliberations. among the
three big colonial powers affected -
Britain, France and Italy -was to
permit such discussions.
The British government was repre-
sented as not discouraged by Premier
Benito Mussolini's abrupt rejection of
its recent offer to surrender a strip
of British Somaliland for the sake of
peace.
The fact that France made an Af-
rican territorial concession early in
1935 was considered an indication
that she, too, is willing -to talk about
a further remapping of Africa if it
will avert war.
Pleased With Eden
As today was a British bank holi-
day, Anthony Eden, minister for
League of Nations affairs and Brit-
ain's delegate to the League of Na-
tions council session last week, was
not expected to report until tomorrow

and Sir Samuel Hoare, foreign secre-
tary.
Official circues expressed extreme
satisfaction with Eden's actions at
