Chinese Delegate Warns
Of Growing Imperialism
In Latin America
MOSCOW, Aug. 8. - (A) - The
unusual proposal that Communists
ally themselves with churchmen for
a fight to overthrow the Nazi regime
was presented today to the Seventh
Congress of the Third Internationale
F. Walter, the German delegate,
said communists are prepared to unite
with Catholics in a fight against Fas-
cism in Germany.
"We told the Catholic workers we
are ready to fight with them for free-
dommofnconscience, as we have one
common enemy -ftascism," Walter
declared. He predicted a united front
governmentin Germany "after the
fall of- the Nazis, "
Harry Pollipp, of .England, urged
"lovers of freedom in France, Eng-
land, and America" to help overthrow
the Nazis. "We call upon them to
encircle the Nazi hell with a steel
ring!" he shouted.
Pollipp said death sentences passed
in Germany on communist leaders
Rudolf Klauf and Albert Kayser was
the first time "even Fascist courts"
had decreed death as a punishment
for political belief and that the
Internationale is organizing "a strong
movement" to rescue them.

Sox In Series
Opener, 5 To 2
Crowder Wins His 13th As
Tiger Infield Smothers
DETROIT, Aug. 8. - (Special) -
A stellar defensive exhibition by De-
troit's vaunted infield enabled Alvin
(General) Crowder to pitch the Tigers
to a 5 to 2 victory over the Chi-
cago White Sox in the opening game
of their current series at Navin Field
Four double plays, all occurring at'
crucial moments when potential Chi-
cago runs were on the bases, helped
Crowder register his thirteenth win
of the season and sent the Detroiters
into a five-game lead over New York
in thesleague pennant race. The
Yankees were defeated by Phila-
delphia, 9 to 6.
Before Crowder had been com-
fortably settled on the mound, the
White Sox drove out three hits and
had a run across the plate with no
outs registered, but a fast double
play, Gehringer to Rogell to Green-
berg, on Washington's ground ball
put a halt to the uprising.
The Tigers knotted the count in
the second on Greenberg's long double
off the scoreboard and Goslin's timely
single to right. Just prior to this the
Bengals had quelled another poten-
tial rally when Sewell hit into a
double play with Dykes on first.
In their half of the fourth the
Tigers picked up another run to go
into the lead. Rogell opened the in-
ning with a sharp two-bagger down
the right field foul line, advanced to
third on Fox's sacrifice bunt, and
scored on Owen's drive over the
drawn-in White Sox infield.
Three singles and two passes ac-
counted for two Detroit runs in the
fifth. The final Tiger scoring ef-
fort came in the eighth after Fox
had doubled against the scoreboard
with nobody out.

ROME, Aug. 8. - (A') - Premier
Mussolini gave strict orders today
that gigantic military maneuvers to
be held near the Brenner Pass be
kept secret, following unconfirmed
reports that Italy has made great
strides in developing offensive weap-
ons hitherto unknown.
More than 500,000 men will take

Il Duce gave his orders for secrecy
in response to queries from foreign
correspondents for the privilege of
witnessing the maneuvers.
"No form of newspaperman will be
allowed," said his spokesman, who
laughed when asked if photographers
would be allowed.
One of the arguments of Europe'
against Mussolini's African plans has
been that he cannot send great con-
tingents to Africa without bleeding

upon by England and France to ex-

ADDIS ABABA, Aug. 8. - (P')-De-
velopments in the Italo-Ethiopian
dispute lent strength today to the
growing belief that Emperor Haile Se-
lassie is turning to the Orient for
munitions the rest of the world thus
far has denied him.
Daba Birrou, a former Foreign Of-
f ce official, will leave soon for Japan
on an unannounced secret mission,
which was believed connected with
getting credit for munitions and
foodstuffs for conducting a war.
A lack of supplies is becoming more
evident daily as outlying troops pour
in the capital to get equipment, only
to find none is available.
Coupled with this development, was
a report (officially confirmed in1
Tokio) that Japan would shortly1
