Judge Arthur Webster pronounced
suspended sentences today on 118 sit-
down strikers whose ejection from the

Senate Pays Tribute To Lost Leader


Capitol police lowered the flag on the Senate office building in
Washington to half staff as a tribute to the late Senator Joseph T.
Robinson of Arkansas, majority leader of the Senate. Behind the flag
is the dome of the Capitol, where the veteran senator was leading
the fight for the administration's court re-organization bill. Robinson
died in his Washington apartment at the age of 64.
Foyer Francais Celebrates And
Has Everything But Ghampagne

French Dinner Is Served
To Commemorate July
14, BastileDay
Complete with butterless bread and
whole fresh fruit, a French dinner,
served and prepared in true Gallic
style was the high point of the cele-
bration of July 14, national French
holiday, by students living in the
Foyer Francais.
July 14, to the uninitiated, is just
another day, but to the French and
to French students it is important
because it is the anniversary of the
Fall of the Bastille. When the oc-
cupants of the Foyer came to dinner
Wednesday, a red white and blue
bouquet centered the table and the
pyramided napkins at each place
flaunted tiny French flags at the top.
A typical French dish, "Soupe a 1'-
Oignon," or translated, simply onion
soup, was served as a first course.
Next came "Gigot de Mouton," or
roast mutton," Haricots Verts," or
roast mutton, "Haricots Nerts," or
French bread, "Salade," and "From-
age Roquefort" or Roquefort Cheese.
A "chef d' oeuvre" was the desert of
whole fresh fruits,'served in a wicker
basket lined with green leaves.
The , dinner was a somewhat
lengthy affair because.each dish was
served individually, according to
French dictates of etiquette. Thel
sole concession to the American hab-
it of speed was the serving of the
beans with the meat, but as it was
the meal lasted one hour and a half.
Several members of the Foyer found
French bread without butter rather
hard to eat, but the dinner was

strictly a case of "do as the French
The house director of the Foyer,j
Miss Deirdre McMullan, who planned
the menu, admitted that there was
one essential lacking: champagne,;
but she stated that the guests ac-1
cepted a rather inadequate substi-
tute, ice water, with good grace.
After the "cafe Noir," served in
the living room, the guests danced
on the front porch of the Foyer,
which in the regular schoolyear is
the home of the Kappa Alpha Theta
sorority. A meeting of the Cercle
Francais concluded the day's festivi-

Norris, Negro
In Scottsboro
Case, Convicted
One Of Nine Found Guilty
For 3rd Time; Attorney
Plans New Appeal
DECATUR, Ala., July 15.-(P)-A
new chapter in the celebrated Scotts-
boro case was concluded today when
Clarence Norris, one of the nine Ne-
gro youths accused of attacking two
white women, was convicted for the
third time bya jury which recom-
mended the death penalty.
Twice before during the six-year
court battle which attracted inter-
national attention, Norris had been
convicted of the crime and sentenced
to death, but was saved from the elec-
tric chair by the United States Su-
preme Court.
Today. he listened stolidly as the
court clerk read the verdict. It was
the first returned in the re-trials of
the nine Negroes charged with as-
saulting Mrs. Victoria Price and
Ruby Bates, textile mill workers,
aboard a freight train bound for
Huntsville, Ala., in 1931.
"I will appeal the sentence to hell
and back," declared Samuel E. Lei-
bowitz of New York, chief of defense
Judge W. W. Callahan said he
would formally sentence Norris next
week, probably Thursday. The trial
of Charlie Weems is scheduled to
open that day.
The court room was only half filled
as the jury of 12 white men filed in.
Spectators heard the verdict with-
out a demonstrtion.
The state demanded the chair for
Norris as "a warning to other rapists
and a protection for the womanhood
of this state."
Judge Callahan charged the jury,
just before it took the case at 10:50
a.m., that "this suit is not Victoria
Price vs. Clarence Norris, but the
state of Alabama vs. Clarence Norris."
League Council
Announces New
Ethel McCormick, Social
Director, Issues Decree
For Dance Tonight
At a meeting yesterday of the
League Council, Miss McCormick,
Social Director of the Summer Ses-
sion, announced that cutting at the
informal dances will be allowed.
Heretofore there has been a ruling
against allowing unescorted men to
go in the ballroom. 0
This ruling has been due primarily
to the excessive heat. During the
first half of the evening until inter-
mission the men are requested to ob-
serve the old rule.
The next in the series of the in-
formal dances will be held tonight
from 9 p.m. until 1 a.m. in the
League Ballroom. The League Gar-
dens will be open to every one on the
nights of the dances, and fountain
service may be had. The gardens
will be lighted indirectly with Jap-
anese lanterns hung in the trees.
Jeanne Geyer, chairman of the
Friday night dances has selected as
her assistants: Phylis Cozart, Eva

point out that action was of immed-
iate necessity and, therefore, that the
process of Constitutional amend-
fren was an impossibility if the ob-
jective was to be attained within a
reasonble time.
"It is, of course, clear that any
determined minority group in the na-
tion could, without great difficulty,
block ratification by one means or
another in at least 13 states for a
long period of time."
The President declared both the
original court bill, for six new jus-
tices, and "Senator Robinson's bill,"
which would permit the appoint-
ment of one new justice each calen-
dar year, are clearly constitutional.
Another reason for action by legis-
lation rather than by constitutional
amendment, Mr. Roosevelt said, is
the fact that the situation of the
civilized world has been at a point
of extreme danger for several years.
"The United States is happily free
from any thought of aggression or
armament for aggression," he con-
tinued, "but the people of the United
States have called for economic se-

satisfactory method, and told him
further that responsibility for adop-
