Young British Diplomat To
Urge Economic Rather
Than Political Peace
ROME, Aug. 13. - () - Informed
circles described Italy's policy today
in the forthcoming tri-power confer-
ence on the Ethiopian situation as
one of "no compromise."
These sources said Premier Musso-
lini outlined this policy yesterday in
discussions with his aides and offi-
cials who will attend the Paris con-
versations, beginning Thursday, with
representatives of Great Britain and
It was said that Italy will neither
abase her demands for a definite set-
tlement of her dispute with Ethiopia
nor give further heed to suggestions
of compromise whic~h involve conces-
sions on her part.
EDEN LEAVES FOR PARIS
LONDON, Aug. 13.--(W)-- An au-
thority said today that Anthony Eden,
minister for League of Nations af-
fairs, will urge an economic rather
than political basis for the solution of
the Italo-Ethiopian dispute this week.
It was stated he was prepared to
offer this suggestion Thursday when
the tri-power conference on the Ethi-
opian question opens in Paris among
representatives of Great Britain,
Italy, and France.
The British government is repre-
Sented as hopeful that Premier Pierre
Laval of France would make some
definite poposal along economic lines
which would be acceptable to Pre-
mier Mussolini of Italy.
.An economic settlement, it was
said, might involvetvarious conces-
sions in .Ethopia to Italy. These
might be railway, mineral and trade
rights and perhaps a definite voice
in Ethiopia's further import and ex-

nine days intensive survey of the
possibilities for reaching an agree-

how serious would be any disregard

WOMEN TAKE JOBS
ADDIS ABABA, Aug. 13.-()---
The loyal response of Emperor Haile
Selassie's subjects to the call to the
colors found 10,000 native women suc-
ceeding today to the jobs abandoned
by the men.5
They became servants in the homes
of native and foreign residents as
their husbands and fathers prepared
*to march with the volunteer armies
toward the borders. Most of the
troops will go to the Somaliland fron-
The emperor, still hopeful of a
peaceful settlement of the dispute
with Italy, nevertheless reiterated
yesterday to his crown council the
readiness of his followers to spend
their last drop of blood in defense
of their land.
His foreign minister also made offi-
cial denial that Haile Selassie had of-
fered to cede a strip of Ethiopia
to Italy in exchange for an outlet to
the sea, as reported in Paris dis-

Last year's virtually barren fields are yielding corn so tall in South
Dakota that farmers are overjoyed with prospects of a great crop. Fed-
eral crop experts predict the yield will be 80,745,000 bushels, or more
than 68,000,000 bushels above the production in 1934. Here is some of
the state's finest near Sioux Fals.
Former Missouri Senator
Gives Republicans Good
Chance In 1936
FAIRVIEW, Aug. 13.-(P)-Former
Senator James A. Reed, (Dem., Mo.),
predicted today that if the Republican
party adopts a good platform and
nominates a good candidate, it can
defeat President Roosevelt in 1936.
He expressed the belief, however,
that the Democrats should nominate
a conservative candidate rather than

the so-called New Deal, the one-time
fiery orator of the Senate said in an

who happens to be President cannot

live always under some name."

to tear it down, aided by a disgrace-

possible to defeat President Roosevelt
for renomination. He made it clear
he favored the selection of a con-
servative rather than a liberal Demo-
He mentioned three former gov-

Death House 'Pal'
Of Hauptmann To
Die During Week
TRENTON, N. J., Aug. 13. - (A) -
John Favorito, a prison comrade of
Bruno Richard Hauptnmann, will go
to his death this week for the slaying
of an acquaintance of Charles A.
During the dragging months of
awaiting results of appeals to New
Jersey's high courts, the inevitable
death house friendship developed be-
tween Favorito and the man convict-
ed of the Lindbergh baby slaying.
The 25-year-old Edgewater mechanic
on his way to the electric chair, was
expected to bid farewell to Haupt-
The court of pardons, court of last
resort, recently refused clemency to
Favorito, convicted of slaying Emil
Vyborny, gasoline station operator, of
Englewood Cliffs, during a $4 holdup.
Col. Lindbergh, who occasionally was
a customer at the gasoline station,
inquired several times about Vybor-
ny's condition in the Englewood hos-
pital, where the victim of the shoot-
ing died last Christmas day, nine days
after the holdup.
Hauptmann, who found six death
house companions when he came to
Trenton after conviction at Flem-
ington, will be left with two, Charles
Zeid, Philadelphia gangster, convict-
ed of killing a Camden detective, and
Arthur Johnes, Newark Negro, con-
victed in an Essex county killing.
While Hauptmann awaits the de-
cision of the court of errors and ap-
peals whether he shall have a new
trial, his counsel, C. Lloyd Fisher,
is at work upon "new evidence."
Fisher, after a visit to Hauptmann
yesterday, said he discussed this evi-
dence with him and considered it
important. He declined to reveal its
nature, but said he planned a visit
soon to California in connection with
it. Hauptmann's sister, Mrs. Emma
Gloeckner, in Los Angeles, recently
retained a lawyer to present 'new
Abbott Resents Hint
Of Political Infidelity
SAULT STE. MARIE - (A')- Hor-
atio J. Abbott, Democratic national
committeemen who was challenged
yesterday by Giles Kavanaugh, col-
lector of internal revenue, to tell how
he voted in the 1934 election, was
ready today to "stack my Demo-
cracy up against his feeble efforts."
Kavanagh had issued his challenge
in denying Abbott's charge that he
violated a promise by dismissing Ab-
bott's son, Floyd, from the collector's
"I have no desire to enter into any
controversy with Kavanagh," said
Abbott, who attended the banquet
of the Northern Michigan sportsmen's
association last night.
"He is headed for enough trouble
as it is. I simply say that I am
willing to stack my Democracy up
against his feeble efforts over the past
35 years and allow the public to judge
who has been the most helpful to the

Detroit's Pickert Brands
Schroeder's Charges As
DETROIT, Aug. 13. - Charges
that the Detroit police have shown
hostility to the State Liquor Control
Act and have sought to discredit the
home rule provisions of the act, made
in Lansing Monday by Rep. George
A. Schroeder (Dem.) of Detroit, were
characterized as "silly" today by Po-
lice Commissioner Pickert.
"The records of the department
will not bear out the charge," Pick-

vestigation into the operations of the

He charged that the Detroit police
have sought to discredit the Liquor
Control Actbecause the Legislature,
in framing the act, exempted Wayne
County from the home rule provi-
"This was done because of the cn-
ditions in Detroit under prohibition,"
Schroeder said. "Bootleggers just
paid the officers in their precinct and
that's all there was to it."
The committee, called together by
Schroeder and Lieut.-Gov. Thomas
Read, spent most of Monday organ-
izing and discusing the scope of its
The greatest breakdown in the liq-
uor control system is the lack of co-
operation of local officials in en-
forcement, members of the committee
agreed. It was suggested that the
license fees, returned to the local
communities for enforcement, might
be witheld from those communities
where enforcement is bad, but there
was doubt as to whether this could be
Beer Garden Blight
The beer garden in Detroit is a
"blight" Rep. Schroeder said. He
said the Legislature had the German
type, family beer garden in mind
and that he never had an idea there
would be more than five in Detroit.
Lieut.-Gov. Read suggested that
the members of the Liquor Control
Commission, Frank A. Picard, for-
mer chairman, and Mrs. Frederick
M. Alger, who resigned last week, be
summoned to testify before the com-
mittee and that Gov. Fitzgerald be
invited to give his views of what
should be done.
The committee agreed that the next
meeting would be held in Lansing
Aug. 21, and announced that they
would hold hearings later in Detroit
for perhaps two or three days.
Senator Adolph F. Heidkamp
(Rep.), of Lake Linden, and Rep. Carl
F. Delano (Rep.), of Kalamazoo,
members of the committee did not
attend Monday's session.

Alphone B. Conrad, Detroit drug-

CHICAGO, Aug. 13. - (k') - As the
Western clubs moved into enemy lots
today for their final Eastern inva-
sion of the campaign, President
Thomas Hickey, of the American As-
sociation, predicted an increase in
attendance this season of 100,000
more than last year.
A tight pennant race, so close that
today six of the eight clubs were
above the .500 percentage mark, and
night base ball were given credit for
the attendance increase by the vet-
eran league head.
"Through the first two-thirds of
the season, we were better than 40,-
000 ahead of last year," President
Hickey said, "and' with six teams
still holding a chance to win the pen-
nant, it doesn't seem unreasonable
to expect a total gain of 100,000.
Night base ball has been a great
boon. Six American Association
clubs, all execpt Minneapolis and St.
Paul, have night games and I expect,
they will have it next year. And I
think the major leagues will go in for
night base ball in a big way next
Is Dismissed By
Detroit Edison Is Refuted
In Legal Effort To Have
Order Made Void
LANSING, Aug. 13.-- ()- Circuit
Judge Leland W. Carr dismissed the
appeal of the Detroit Edison Co. to-
day from a public utilities commis-
sion order that it reduce its rates.
The court also dismissed the ap-
peals of the city of Detroit and the
Michigan Manufacturers' association,
which had contended that the utilities
commission did not go far enough
in its rate cutting order.
The Detroit Edison Co. had con-
tended that an order reducing com-
mercial electricity rates in Detroit
by $1,500,000 was unfair. The com-
pany demanded that its rate schedule
be permitted to stand.
The Michigan Manufacturers' asso-
ciation in its suit contended tha all
customers of the company should
benefit under a cut of approximately
$5,000,000 a year. The city of De-
troit also had requested a reduction
in all of the rates but wanted a $2,-
Judge Carr in his decision said
the questions raised in the three suits
"become moot" and that none of the
plaintiffs had succeeded in proving its
contentions. He dismissed all of the
