It Is A Crime For Person In

WASHINGTON, Aug. 10. - (P) -
,A trying job that has bobbed up in-
termittently for a century and a half

trality laws - threatens to arise again
over the prospective Italo-Ethiopian
Already the tide of racial feeling
is running high in some quarters. In

This country's officials of state

some experts the broadest in the

Law Passed In 1794
Uncle Sam started out in 1794 to
put a stop to recruiting men in this
country for clashes elsewhere, mak-
ling it a crime for any person in this
country - whether or not a citizen
-to enlist himself for alien war serv-
From the earliest days heavily re-
strictive measures against recruiting
in this country have been maintained
but not always effectively, due us-
ually to popular sympathy with the
zealots. One of the most heated of
American diplomatic exchanges with
England came in1856 on the conten-
tion that the British in defiance of
law were recruiting Americans to
fight against Russia.
Sought to Free Colonies
In a broad survey, Dr. Roy Emer-
son Curtis found that the United
States had failed in several historic
instances to enforce anti-recruiting
-measures. Unauthorized expeditions
from $his country against powers
with ,which America was at peace
hve been many and colorful. In
1806, according to Curtis, Francisco
de Miranda organized an expedition
in New York and sailed against Cara-
cas in a plan to free the Spanish col-
onies. Defeated, he escaped. A New
York port official was tried for com-
plicity, but acquitted despite a strong
jury charge by the judge.
rThe Texas war for independence
from Mexico got much natural sym-
pathy and help from citizens of the
United States. After the defeat of
the Canadian rebellion under the
leadership of William L. McKenzie in
1837, the insurgents fled to this coun-
try and got recruits in preparation for
more attacks.
One Lopez, a Spanish adventurer,
sailed openly from New Orleans in
1849, .despite presidential orders for
his arrest, with an expedition which
planned to annex Cuba to the United
States. Driven off by the Spaniards,
he came back to the United States,
was tried and acquitted amid cheers.
He made a second expedition before
losing his life in Havana.
Walker Led Three Attacks
Armed expeditions intervened in a
revolution in Nicaragua in 1855. One
of the most widely known of the 19th

century recruiters was William Wal-
ker, who led at least three major
attacks against other countries in the
fifties, and made three other at-
In 1866 an expedition set out from
Buffalo with the purpose of taking
Fort Colbourne in Canada. Repulsed,
the filibusters fled back to this coun-
try and 375 were arrested, but the
prosecutions were abandoned. They
tried it again,and one of their leaders,
convicted of violating the neutrality
law, was unconditionally pardoned by
the president.

He figured out that if a batter
gained some advantage from swing-
ing several bats before going to the
plate, thus making the single bat feel
lighter, the same principle could be
applied to pitchers. He decided that
the way to do it was to swing anheavy
ball before, starting to pitch and be-
tween innings.
Manager Lefty O'Doul, a south-
paw himself and therefore wide open
to that sort of reasoning, had two
regulation-size baseballs cast in iron.
He hands one to the pitcher assigned
to work. The pitcher winds up with
it, and snaps his wrist, but does not
attempt to throw it. All the Seal

Auto Cavalry Unit
ToGuard U.S. Gold
At KentuckyfCache
FORT KNOX, Ky., Aug. 10.- (') -
A cavalry regiment without horses,
but with $2,500,000 worth of fighting
machinery on wheels, is going through
a period of intensive training on
this 33,000-acre militar.y reservation,
where the treasury will build a rock-
bound vault to protect heavy stores
of government gold.
The First cavalry is the only mech-
anized cavalry regiment in the army.
Not a man in this fast moving unit
is on foot when assigned to active
duty; not one rides horseback except
for recreation.
Backing up the mechanized cavalry
in war department. charts is the 68th
Field Artillery, mechanized, also per-
manently assigned to Fort Knox.
The next development, after an ex-
tensive building program here is
completed, is expected to be the mech-
anism of another cavalry regiment.
At an estimated cost of $2,500,000
for new fighting machinery, this
would give Fort Knox full brigade
strength of three regiments, con-
centrating the mechanized forces in
this growing military center, 31 miles
south of Louisville in the Ohio River
To- mnan their 200 vehicles, which
will be brought up to the minute
this fall with 56 new 17,000-pound
combat cars to replace outmoded
"mosquito" and medium sized ar-
mored automobiles, every soldier in
the regiment has to be a mechanical

ers, bristling with machine guns,
short-wave radios and armor plate,

Brig. Gen. Guy V. Henry, comman-
dant, down, is ready, day or night,
to snap into action.

dividual mobility of men on horse-
back, its speed - officially 45 miles

Texas. Given two steady years of
play and practice, Gene says, and
this young lady would have an even
chance of winning the national open.
"She hits her drives 250 yards at
times," says Sarazen, "and I've seen
her belt them 280. She hits her irons
as crisply, and with all the wrist pow-
er of a man. Only when her putter
fails her - and that's her weakness
now - does she slip into the 80's.
The Babe is no longer the tomboy
of the last Olympics, the girl who
shunned rouge and powder and
dressed like a boy. She's as chic
and well turned out today as any of
the lady golfers, and once she got
started that way, she went all the
way. Her ensembles, as the ladies
say, are quite something to see. It
hasn't hurt her athletic ability any.
* * *
Bill Cunningham, in the Boston
Post, gives something of an inside
picture of the Babe's early problems
in sports, as gained from a discussion
of the situation with the young lady
in person, a fellow-Texan.
Bill writes that the Babe told him
she never did have to report 'for
duty at that insurance company
where she "worked" for $50 a week
while representing the firm in track
and field. She would drop around
half an hour now and then and talk
sports with the boss. He liked that.
This was the kind of amateurism,
Bill points out, that Miss Didrikson
gave up when she became a "pro-
fessional" by endorsing an automo-
bile. He says the A.A.U. wanted to
finance her suit against the automo-
bile firm, a suit that might have re-'
turned her "amateur" standing, let
her go on collecting $50 a week for'
talking to the boss now and then.
She must have been proud of that'
"amateur" standing.
Large Wheat
Crop Reported
By AAA Heads
WASHINGTON, Aug. 10.--(P)-
The AAA took the view today that
there is still "plenty of wheat" de-
spite a drop of 124,000,000 bushels in
the government estimates of that
The Aug. 1 estimate of the de-
partment of agriculture, issued yes-
terday, placed the total wheat crop
for 1935 at 607,678,000 bushels. This
compared with a July 1 forecast of
731,000,000 bushels.
"Radical changes" have itaken
place in the past month, said the
department, which also reported a
corn estimate of 2,272,147,000 bushels,
as against the estimate of 2,045,000
bushels a month earlier. This was
an increase of 228,000,000 bushels in
the 30 days.
AAA officials made plain that the
altered figures for wheat foreshad-
owed no change in their plans to re-
quire that acreage be reduced 15 per
cent next year. The four-year wheat
adjustment contracts also will remain
unaffected by the estimate, said
George E. Farrell, director of the
AAA's grain division.
There was a reduction of 97,031,-
000 bushels in the spring wheat crop
and officials attributed this to black
rust, hot weather and drouth. Winter

To Carry Dkrive
To Berlin Now
Streicher Will Address Al
Overflow Meeting; Even
Press Must Stand
BERLIN, Aug. 10. - (P) - Julius
Streicher, most uncompromising Nazi
foe of Jews, will carry his anti-Se-
mitic drive into Berlin Thursday, it
was learned today, as further reports
were received of religious strife
throughout the Reich.
Both Jews and Catholics suffered in
the latest restrictions.
Foreign correspondents, .applying
for tickets to hear Streicher, were
advised only standing room remained.
This will be the second invasion of
Berlin by Streicher, publisher of the
relentlessly anti-Semitic newspaper,
Der Stuermer, of Nurnberg.
Overflow Meeting
Following an address in the Sports-
palast, Berlin's largest auditorium, the
fiery Stericher will speak to an over-
flow meeting in the Jewish section
of the city. In the current issue of
his newspaper Streicher reveals why
Richard Strauss resigned as head of
the Reich's musical chamber last July
13. At the time Strauss, who is 71,
said he was retiring because of ad-.
vanced age.
Der Stuermer said the resignation
was forced because Strauss employed
Stefan Zweig, a Jew, to write the
libretto of "The Silent Woman,"
played at Dresden June 24, and be-
cause Strauss' son married a Jewess.

tions in Upper Silesia continued to

This is the first German attack
on Austria since the chancellor tried
to patch up the demolished German-
Italian friendship.
Gustave Giesecke, peasant leader in
the free state of Brunswick, issued
an order which declared: "Whoever,
as a German peasant, engages in*

comfort to the deadly enemy of the
German people, the Jew."
Seek Early Action
On Guffey Coal Bill
WASHINGTON, Aug. 10. - (P) -
House passage next week of the Guf-
fey bituminous coal stabilization bill
was the goal set today by administra-
tion leaders. '
They were convinced that they had
the votes necessary to get the measure
out of the ways and means commit-
tee Monday with a favorable recom-
niendation. The Senate has yet to
act on the legislation - a "must" bill
on the President's calendar.
The Guffey billhwould set up a little
"NRA" within the bituminous coal
industry. A national coal commission
would be created to regulate wages,

hours, production and trade practices.
Regulations would be enforced
through a tax on producers, most of
which would be returned to those
who signed up to observe them.

Long Death 'Plot'
Just Another Story
To HisColleagues
WASHINGTON, Aug. 10. - (P)- -
Senator Huey P. Long's description
of what he considered a half-formed
"plot" to kill him in the Senate drew
scoffs today from some other Louis-
iana legislators.
Long told the Senate about it yes-
terday, reading from what he said
was a transcript, taken down by a
sound-recording machine, of three
conferences of anti-Long men held in
New Orleans July 21 and 22.-
Among others at the first meeting,
Long said, were Mayor T. Semmes
Walmsley, of New Orleans, Rep. Na-
ma F. Montet and Rep. John H. San-
din, both Louisiana Democrats, and
Oscar Whilden, head of the "Square
Deal League" of the state.
The talk of shooting the senator,
Long asserted, came at a later session
at which Whilden was present, but
Walmsley and the congressmen were
When he heard of Long's statement,
Montet said:
"Huey just had another bad
At the opening of the first meet-
ing, Long asserted, the sound-re-
cording device recorded Whilden as
"I am out to murder, kill, bull-
doze, steal, or anything else to win
this election."
Long said it was at the third con-
ference that the talk of killing him
in the Senate was recorded, the rec-
ords being made by a brother of his
secretary and another man.
This was the way the conversation
went, according to Long who said he
was not able to identify the "vocies" :
Voice: "I would draw in a lottery
to go out and kill Long."
Voice: "Single handed?"
Voice: "Yes, that's the only way
to do it ."
Voice: "I haven't the slightest
doubt that Roosevelt would pardon
anyone who killed Long."
Voice: "But how could it be done?"
Voice: "The best way would be just
to hang around Washington and kill
him right in the Senate."
