MORE OFFICERS CALLED
ROME, Aug. 7.- (P) - The war de-

officers from home and abroad today
as the populace, aroused anew by
Premier Mussolini's order constitut-

All prospective officers of the classes
from 1909 to 1914 (men born in those
years) who have not completed offi-
cers' training were ordered by the
war department to resume it by Nov.
15. They will complete the training
by next May 15.
The order also applied to pensioned
officers under 39 who "still aspire"
to readmission to .military service, as
well as officers who have left the
service because of foreign residence.
The popular excitement was re-
flected in turbulent demonstrations
at San Remo and Asti, headquarters

sions of regulars, and Milan and sur-
rounding communities, from which
the recruits will be drawn.
MACDONALD IN POWER
LONDON, Aug. 7. - (P) - Ramsay
MacDonald became acting prime
minister of Great Britain today on
the eve of an expected climax to the
Anglo-Italian controversy over Ethi-
Uneasy over already frayed rela-
tions between this country and Italy,
the government decided to let France
take the lead in next week's tri-power
talks at Paris. The decision was
reached before Prime Minister Stan-
ley Baldwin departed for a vacation
at Aix-Les-Bains, France.
The decision, however, did not
mean any relaxation of Britain's de-
termination to uphold the sovereign
rights of Ethiopia, especially in view
of the declaration by Anthony Eden,
Nminister for league affairs, that he
would assume responsibility for put-
ting the issue squarely before the
League of Nations Council Sept. 4 if
the forthcoming tri-power confer-
Although MacDonald, former prime
minister and now lord president of
the council, became nominal head of
the government, Baldwin was ex-

Blaze Breaks Out In New
Navy Cruiser Preparing
For Trial Run
QUINCY, Mass., Aug. 7. - (P) -
A fire in the engine room of the
recently launched U. S. S. Quincy was
extinguished early today after a five-
The 10,000 ton cruiser lay at a dock
at the Fore River ship yards of the
Bethlehem Shipbuilding corporation,
where she was being prepared for her
trial run. She had been launched at
the Fore River plant June 19.
Harry E. D. Gould, general man-
ager of the Fore River plant, said
the fire was believed to have started
in the switchboard of the main cable
room, a 60 by 80 foot section at the
aft end of the engine room.
Beyond that he declined to discuss
the blaze. He said, however, that a
board of Bethlehem and navy officials
would investigate today.
Word of the blaze was not received
outside the yard until some hours
after it had been discovered.
Yard workmen attempted to ex-
tinguish the fire with the shipbuild-
ing company's apparatus, and after
three hours of unsuccessful battling,
called in the Quincy fire department.
Acrid, heavy smoke billowed from
engine room openings and firemen
worked in groups of three for periods
of five minutes as they sought to
reach the seat of the fire.
The deck plates were so hot, they
were unable to get within two decks
of the engine room and clouds of
steam shot up as the water from their
hose lines struck the decks.
Shipyard officials, who declined
their names, set the loss at "thou-
sands and thousands of dollars."
The Quincy was built at the Fore
River yard at a cost of $8,196,000. It
is 578 feet long at the waterline.
She is of the very latest type, and
is named in honor of former Secre-
tary of the Navy Charles Francis
Adams, whose birthplace is Quincy.
The vessel was christened by Mrs.
Catherine Adams Morgan, daughter
of the former navy secretary.

He declined to disclose her name.

On Guffey Bill
Roosevelt Intervenes In An
Effort To Get Coal Act
Out Of Committee
WASHINGTON, Aug. 7. - () -
New Deal chiefs decided today, after
counting noses again, that until the
situation changes it will be impos-
sible to get the Guffey coal regulation
bill out of the House Ways and Means
Consequently things were at a
standstill, insofar as apparent activ-
ity was concerned. Undercover, how-
ever, the "heat" was being put on.
There are 18 Democrats and 7 Re-
publicans on the committee. Six of
the seven Republicans will vote
against approving the bill. To get
a favorable report, the Democrats
thus have to muster 12 votes on
their own side.
Today, all 18 Democrats had been
2hecked. The tentative count stood
10 to 8 for the bill- two short of the
required number. Vigorous attempts
were being made to change two votes.
It was reported that President Roose-
velt, who favors the bill, had inter-
The intervention, it was said, was
naot in the form of personal appeals
to individual members but rather a
blanket statement transmitted to
the Democrats that they could make
whatever changes they wished so long
as they maintained the major objec-
tives of the bill.
Administration committee leaders
hoped the two votes could be 'swung.
The immediate strategy, however,
was t sit tight and see what de-

Nazis Act To Halt Flow Of

Nazi announcement proclaimed today
that further "measures" would be
taken to halt a stream of "undesirable
elements," especially Jews, pouring
into Berlin for refuge.
The announcement said the meas-
ures already have been drawn up by
Count Wolf Hendrick von Helldorf,
head of the Berlin police, and Julius
Lippert, Nazi commissioner for Berlin,
to stem the migration from the pro-
vinces - "greater than ever before."
No indication was given as to the
precise nature of the steps to be

against Jewish foreign films because
"it is necessary to admit these films
in order to sell ours abroad."
