tionary activities had been directed
In Maiei*s home they said they
also found subversive Nazi propa-
ganda and multigraphed, directions
to Nazi Storm Troop detachments,
After a defeat of the Nazis at Eibis-
wald the peasant population of Styria,
which is generally regarded as a Nazi
stronghold, immediately began talk-
ing about revenge and indicated that
they were awaiting news from Ca-
rinthia as to the developments there.
Meanwhile, the Heimwehr and the
Catholic Storm Troops in Graz, the
capital of Styria, were celebrating
their victory.
They made wholesale arrests of
Nazis and even of Nazi sympathizers.
They raided clothing stores in search
of neckties and other wearing appa-
rel with the colors of the German
flag.
People in the street, even girls
wearing dresses showing the com-
bination of black, white, and red,
were compelled to remove the colors.
Nazis Beaten
A milk dealer arriving in Graz
from Andritz reported that more than
100 Nazis had' been arrested there.
He said that they were stripped of
clothesand received terrible beatings
as " the first treatment."
Bitter fighting took place in the
vicinity of the festival city of Salz-
burg during the night. At Liefering,
not far from the German border, a
Heimwehr commander was killed and
six of'his men wounded during a
skirmish' with Nazis.
The fighting in and around Lamp-
rechtshausen was especially heavy.
Clashes also occurred at Mandling,
where a Heimwehr detachment was
attacked by Nazis, who were beaten
off.
Another sector of conflict is east-
ern Tyrol. Feldkirchen and Klagen-
furt, Carinthia's picturesque capital,
are centers of civil war. The Govern-
ment is rushing troops in increasing
numbers to that section in an effort
to stamp out the revolt.
Carinthia is a tangle of barbed
wire. It is jammed with gleaning
bayonets. The wounded are pouring
in from neighboring battlefields.
There was no serious fighting in
Vienna itself today. Guns, however,
bristled everywhere, evidence of fear
that the Dollfuss funeral might be an
occasion for fresh outbreaks.
Casualties 3,000
Casualties since the revolt began
are still estimated at close to 3,000,
but there are no official figures.
Authorities express confidence that
the revolt can be crushed before it
has a chance to develop into a con-
flagration compelling the intervention
of one or more neighbor nations.
There is no attempt to conceal the
fact that Italy is fully authorized to
rush her troops across the border if
the Nazi uprising becomes too pow-
erful for Austrian Fascism.
The jumpy atmosphere in Vienna
was graphically revealed when a
brisk and lengthy exchange of shots
developed between two Government
forces during the night. A lorry of
Fatherland Front troops skirmished
with pro-Government police and
Heimwehr patrols because of mis-
taken identity. The entire district
was thrown in a panic.
Thousands Weep
Thousands wept freely tonight as
the bronze casket containing the body
of their assassinated Chancellor was
borne in a long funeral procession at
the ancient cathedral of St. Stephen.'
Even the foreign diplomats pres-
ent, inured to funerals of state, gave
vent to their emotions, but Frau Doll-
fuss, who entered the Cathedral sup-
ported by Prince Ernst Rudiger von
Starhemberg and Fritz Stockinger,
minister of commerce, was dry-eyed.
Only the privileged could enter the
somber Gothic edifice to hear Theo-
dore, Cardinal Innitzer pronounce
the funeral oration. He spoke with

great emotion of the hopes which had
animated the Chancellor May 1 when#
he attended a service there which,
he hoped, would mark the begining
of a new era in Austrian history.
The common people outside, along1
the route which the procession had
taken from the city hall, were not
ashamed of their grief. Tears rolled
down weatherbeaten faces. Peasants
and the women of all classes sobbed
as the procession passed.1
Two old peasants, clad in simple7
black, had a place of honor in the
procession. They were the parents
of Dollfuss, the man who rose froms
humble birth to be dictator of the'
nation.

Tigers Regain
Lead; Trounce
Chicago 11-1
'Schoolboy' Rowe Allows
Sox Three Hits; Swats
Three Himself
The Detroit Tigers climbed back
into the number one position yester-
day behind the three hit pitching of
Lynwood (Schoolboy) Rowe as they
trounced the Chicago Sox, 11 to 1.
Rowe's thirteenth victory of the
season came while the Athletics were
splitting a double-header with the
Yanks at Philadelphia and gave the
Tigers a slight percentage-point mar-
gin of the New Yorkers in their hot
race for the American League pen-
nant.
It was a big day for the Schoolboy
who is almost single handed in keep-
ing Detroit in the race. Besides al-
lowing only two singles and one double
in nine innings, he got three hits, two
for two bases, and drove in three runs.
The Bengals, smarting under two
consecutive drubbings by the Boston
Red Sox at Navin Field, started off
with a bang yesterday batting around
in the first inning to amass five runs
before the Sox came to bat. Three
Chicago errors didn't do the Detroit
cause any harm.
The Sox got their single counter
in the fifth on a walk and a single.
The Bengals forced across single runs
in the fourth, and fifth, and got two
each' in the third and ninth while
Walker, Rowe, and Owen were all fat-
tening their batting averages with
three hits apiece.

Von Starhemberg
Urges Austria To
Remember Dollfuss

VIENNA, July 28. - (R) -The spir-
it of the assassinated chancellor En-
gellbert Dollfuss was invoked today by
Acting Chancellor Ernst van Star-
hemberg to plead "before thenThrone
of God" for Austria's independence,
as thousands lined up before the city
hall to pay last honors to the mar-
tyred chancellor.
Other hundreds of thousands lined
the streets through which his body
was carried.
"I am not saying farewell to you,
beloved leader, comrade and friend,"
declared von Starhemberg at the
casket for his predecessor, "for, as a
Catholic, I know that only that which
is mortal of you will perish. You will
continue to live.
"Already, you have entered the
proud history of our fatherland.
"I implore you to be our mediator
before the Throne of God, the All
Highest." -
Candle light around the catafalque,
brouht white-red cloth in which the
coffin was wrapped, the blue uni-
forms of the members of the old im-
period army, the gay bluish-grey of
the Heimwehr men, the gold dress
uniforms of the diplomats - among
whom George S. Messersmith, United
States minister, in his plain cutaway
looked conspicuously democratic -
the field grey of the regular army, and
the purple and gold robes of the
clergy - all presented a picture in the
midst of which the gently sobbing
and desolate Frau Alwine Dollfuss,
clinging to the arm of von Starhem-
berg, seemed bewildered.
President Wilhelm Miklas arrived
in the presidential automobile to be
greeted deferentially by high gov-
ernment officials. He was followed by
a procession of 13 army motor trucks
heaped high with floral tributes from
every part of Austria.
Promptly at 2:30 p.m., a chorus as-
sisted 'by a brass band chanted a
dirge. Then Miklas mounted the ros-
trum.
"Never in all my life has it been as
difficult to speak on an occasion of.
this kind," he said. "A damnable
crime has taken from us Engelbert
Dollfuss, a true Austrian and a true
German who by blood and race was
tied to his native land."

Government Is
Losing Money
By The Millions
Deficit Is Twice As Heavy
As Last Year's, But No
One Is Worrying Yet
WAHINGTON, July 28. - (P) -
Secretary Morgenthau, returning
Monday after a month's vacation, will
find that the deficit is growing more
than twice as fast as at this time a
year ago.
Between July 1 and 25, treasury
figures showed today, the government
spent $244,293,998 more than it took
in. The deficit for the same period last
year was $101,360,234.
The treasury view is that this is not
a ground for worry. The situation is
considered a temporary one, involving
emergency outlays designed to speed
recovery. It is in line with President
Roosevelt's budget message in which
he outlined large borrowings this year
for recovery. He added that the budget
should be balanced in the fiscal year
beginning next July 1.
Emergency expenditures from July
1 to 25 reached $224,813,039, nearly
seven times the figure for the same
period of last year, in spite of credits
of $50,626,398 from the Reconstruc-
tion Finance corporation this year as
against outgo of $22,738,671 in 1933.
The overdraft on the nation's in-
come is expected to increase much
faster in the next few months, with
$6,414,019,043 down on the President's
program for emergency spending, if
needed, during the fiscal year.
About $1,000,000,000 of this will
come from the Treasury's cash bal-
ance, now at the abnormally high fig-
ure of $2,477,262,857. The remainder
must be borrowed, adding to a debt
that stands at $27,190,253,203.
The largest item in the emergency
spending is $126,000,000 paid out by
the federal emergency relief admin-
istration, for drouth and other re-
lief.
Emergency conservation payments
of $36,197,716 are nearly two and a
half times the 1933 figure at this
date. Agricultural adjustment admin-
istration expenditures of $7,305,470
compare with credits from this source
of nearly five times the amount last
year.
POOR LITTLE KEETS!
The youthful Roman emperor,
Elagabalus, thought common food
was not good enough for his pet dogs
and had servants throw them pheas-
ants and parrakeets.
