Austrian Strife
Not Ended With
Dollfuss' Death
Problem Of 'Powder In
Politics' Outlives Slain
VIENNA, July 28. - UP) - Austria's
most perplexing problem - powder in
politics-has outlived the "little chan-
cellor" who tried for more than a year
to solve it.
Assassination of Engelbert Dollfuss
climaxed but did not concludea per-
iod of political disorder which began
more than a year ago when the
chancellor told parliament it was par-
alyzed, and called out the army and
police when some legislators threat-
ened to dispute that point.
With Prince Ernst von Starhem-
berg in the, chancellorship, the shoot-
ing still continued.
Up to the time Dollfuss shelved
parliament, Austrian politics had been
intermittently noisy for several years
-but never really rough. When Hit-
ler came to power in Germany, how-
ever, minor clashes between Nazis
and socialists increased and Austria
seemed headed toward the same path
Germany took.
Bombings Begin
Dollfuss had other plans. With
parliament dissolved, he decreed an
end to municipal or even provincial
Hardly had a blanket of silence des-
cended on parliament, however, than
Nazi street demonstrations increased
in violence. Dollfuss muzzled the
Nazi press and prohibited Nazi mass
meetings. Whereupon bombs began
bursting in the streets\ of Austrian
Powder was being applied more ex-
tensively to Austrian politics.
Tourist Trade Hurt
Behind the spectacular was the
bread-and-butter element of Austria's
trouble. Tourists contribute much to
the nation's earnings, and bombings
and street warfare do not make a
pleasant playground for vacationists.
Dollfuss tightened his rein on the
Nazis, but the bombings continued.
The government was in the embar-
rassing position of fighting not only
Nazis but socialists, who protested his
high-handed treatment of parlia-
ment. Some Dollfuss backers urged a
compromise with the socialists to cre-
ate a united front against the Nazis.
But Prince Starhemberg, then com-
mander of the heimwehr, urged
"ruthless crushing" of the socialists.
"Throw the reds out of the Vienna
city hall and provincial diets; dem-
onstrate that this government is real-
ly anti-Marxist," he advised, "and
the bulk of the Nazi following will
immediately swing over to us."
With Socialist Aid
The socialists became more and
more restive. Finally, when the
Heimwehr began taking matters into
its own hands and new anti-socialist
police raids were begun, the socialists
flared into open revolt.
For a week, Dollfuss had civil war
on his hands.
The "reds" were thrown out, but
contrary to Prince Starhemberg's pre-
dictions, the Nazis did not swing over
to Dolfuss. Instead, the bombings
began again -this time with socialist
Then the government appealed to
the "loyal population" to "take mat-
ters into your own hands" and "stamp'
out the terrorists."
The Dollfuss government contended1
the peopleras a whole were loyal, and
that a mere handful of bomb-tossing
terrorists could keep a nation on edge.
To which the opposition replied that
it was more than a year since the gov-
ernment began jailing the "handful,"
and that bombings were increasing.

They said an unpopular government
could not stand in Austria.
Germans Accused
Austria would be quiet, retorted
Dollfuss supporters, if terrorists were
not supplied with money and explo-
sives from Germany.
On the day before Dollfuss' assas-
sination by the Nazis, a 20-year-old
socialists was hanged after police said
he confessed an attempt to blow up
a suburban railroad. Then came the
unsuccessful coup, the assassination,
civil war in some sections.

Roosevelt To Confer
With Industrialists"
WASHINGTON, July 31. - (A') -
President Roosevelt expects to ask big
business what it thinks of one of his
most cherished social readjustment
hopes, the linking of factory workers
with the soil.
Officials have been informed the
chief executive intends to invite to
his council table some time within
the next two months men who speak
for about 70 per cent of the nation's
industrial producers.
He wants them to discuss his idea
for decentralization of industry.
It is a long-term idea. It involves
a suggestion that during the next
decade or two, many factories move
from crowded cities to the country-
side. There, amid semi-rural sur-
roundings, the workers would have
factory jobs for the mainstay of
their livelihood. But they would own
their own homes and raise food for
themselves as an anchor to windward
in case of need.
Local Police Capture
Two Escaped Prisoners
Two men who were identified as
Earl Dawson and Robert Allman were
captured Monday morning by Ann
Arbor police following their escape
from the farm of the Michigan State
Prison at Jackson Sunday.
The two were apprehended by Offi-
cer Harold King and Special Police-
man Leonard Vorce of the local police
force after a chase of more than a
mile over Ann Arbor streets.
The two prisoners, following their
capture here, were returned to the
penitentiary immediately.
