Unrest Grows"
In Mexico As
Election Day
Rioting Begins
Newsboy Shot, Four Others
Hurt In Mexico City;
Government Officials
Expect No Revolution
Entire Army Kept
On Hand For Duty
MEXICO CITY, July 6. -(i)-
Mexico's angry Presidential cam-
paign ended tonight in an atmos-
phere of growing tenseness, scat-
tered bloodshed and fear of major
disorders in tomorrow's election.
Late in the day, one newsboy was
shot *and killed and four other per-
sons were wounded in front of the
union headquarters here of the
workers of the marine department.
They had shouted "Viva Alama-
zan!" thus demonstrating in behalf
of the anti-administration candidate
for president, General Juan Andreu
The group of boys had stoned the
building, which displayed photo-.
graphs of Manuel Avila Camacho,
the administration candidate. Police
arrested one man in the union head-
quarters and rescued :other occu-
pants from a'mob of boys.
Substantially the entire army of
52,000 was kept to barracks and
police were on the alert.
It was openly predicted that there
would be many "minor incidents,"
but government officials said again
that there would be no revolution.
General Alamazan and President
Lazaro Cardenas, who is backing
General Manuel Avila Camacho as
his successor, exchanged recrimina-
tions in newspaper statements.
Alamazan called upon Cardenas to
fulfill his "duty to respect and make
respected the popular will as he.
spontaneously and frequently offered}
to do," and referred especially to a
presidential statement that the cam-
paign "renews the traditional strife
between the democratic and the
anti-democratic forces."
This statement, Alamazan's fol-
lowers protested, implied that' Ala-
mazan was an anti-democrat, where-
as, they said, his whole campaign
has been an attack on totalitarian

to handle psychological drama in
terms of utter simplicity.

two brothers. Neither of them is

'Pro-American' Bloc Plans
Nation-Wide Movement
To Oust Communists
(By The Associated Press)
LAKE GENEVA, Wis., July 6-A
group of young "pro-Americans" at
odds with the Americap Youth Con-t
gress decided today to launch a one-
state organization of its own as a
start toward a national youth move-
Michigan was selected as the
starting point, since a large majority
of the "pro-Americans," backed by
Gene Tunney, former heavyweiglt
champion, live in Michigan.
Members of the group talked brief-
ly with Tunney today, and then the

former champ left by automobile
for Chicago, to fly from there to
New York.
The Youth Congress itself pro-
ceeded with routine business and
discussion o fits constitution and
by-laws, after voting a policy of
support for national defense and.
non-intervention in foreign wars.
A lengthy debate preceeding adop-
tion last night of the defense reso-
lution by a vote of 384 to 19 pro-
vided the liveliest session of the an-
nual meeting which began Wednes-
day. For congress delegates it
dwarfed the "revolt movement of a
group of about 65 young "pro-Amer-
icans" who had the personal backing
of Gene Tunney, former heavyweight
The defense resolution of the Con-
gress said in part:

tribute, to the maximum, our ener-

America Watches
British Blockade
About Martinique

Full Information
Lacking,_Hull Says
WASHINGTON, July 6.-)-(-The
possibility of joint Pan-American
action with regard to the reported
British blockade of Martinique arose
At a press conference, Secretary
Hull said that this and other Amer-
ican governments carefully were
studying reports that British war-
ships had hemmed in the French
Caribbean island to prevent the de-
parture of a French aircraft carrier.
He added that they now lacked in-
formation on which to base any gen-
eral policy.
Machinery set up by' Pan-Ameri-
can conferences at Buenos Aires in
1936 and at Lima in 1938 provides
for hemisphere consultation in the
event of world peace disruption or
of any threat to American nations.
In addition, a declaration of Amer-
ican nations at Panama last Septem-
ber outlined a 300-mile neutrality
belt, which embraces Martinique.
Hull, saying he expected to attend
the conference of foreign officers of
21 American countries at Havana
July 20, indicated today it would
cover the whole field of Western
Hemisphere problems, including pos-
sible establishing of United States
air bases in South America.
He declared he could not say now
whether this government might call
to the attention of Great Britain
and France the reported blockade
of Martinique. ,He -said, too, that a
question of whether the United
States was ready to seize British and
French islands in this hemisphere if
Germany sought to take them was
a bridge to be crossed when we came
to it.
French spokesmen said they had
no information regarding any block-
ade of Martinique, and British em-
bassy authorities expressed the view
that reports of such a maneuver in-
volved "a great deal of imagination."
On Capitol Hill, senators generally
applauded Hull's declaration yester-
day reaffirming the Monroe Doc-
trine. Hull's statement was made in
response to a note from Germany
that the Administration's interpret-
ation of the Doctrine was "unten-
British Hammer
French, Italian Seapower
LONDON, July 6.-(P)-British
warplanes hammered a double blow
at Italian 'and French seapower to-
day in far-ranging attacks.
At home, Britain enrolled another
300,000 men in her constantly ex-
panding armed manpower, poised
now for invasion.
"Successful action" by naval and
Royal Air Force planes against Ital-
ian warships in Tobruk, Libya, was
announced by the admiralty.
It said other units of the fleet
air arm also had raided an airdrome
at Catania, Sicily, leaving hangars
and workshops in flaming ruins.
Naval mop-up planes made sure
that the damaged French battleship
Dunkerque was out of the war for
They revisited Oran, Algiers, where
the British attack on the French
fleet Wednesday crippled the Dun-
kerque and forced her aground, and
scored six bomb hits on the 26,500-
ton dreadnaught.
"It was considered essential," the
Admiralty explained, "that the ship
should be in no condition to take
part in the war in case she should
fall under enemy control . .."
The planes attacked without warn-
ing because the French commander
had declared his ships hors de com-
bat and said they were to be aban-
doned, a communique disclosed.

To Be A Dud
NEW YORK, July 6.--()-Crowds
at New York's World's Fair got their
second bomb scare in a week today.
But this time, instead of a deadly
explosive similar to the one which
took two lives Thursday and injured
seven, it proved to be only a package
containing-women's silk stockings,
and a handkerchief.
The package was discovered in the
British Pavilion-the same structure
in which the death-dealing bomb
was found two days ago.
It was rushed from the Pavilion
into the little-used area where the
earlier explosion occurred.
Members of the police bomb squad
hastened the package into a lava-
tory and there examined it with a
portable X-ray machine, which dis-
closed no bomb-like structure.
Other sources said it was about
the size of a cigar box, wrapped in
brown paper and bore a note saying:
"Please deliver to address inside
when opened. Danke shoen (German
for. 'thank you.')

Parley Valuable As An Exercise
In Democracy, Blakeman States

140 Youths Enjoy Paradise
At UniversityFresh Air Camp

Free discussion is one of the basic
principles of the growing democracy,
likewise of higher education; there-
fore the Summer Parley is an enter-
prise of great merit, Dr. Edward W.
Blakeman, faculty Parley adviser and
religious counsellor of education, as-
serted in an interview yesterday.
Originating as the brain child of
religious groups, the Parleys contin-
ued on through the years to serve
an ever-broadening and deepening
spiritual purpose, he added. Con-
ceived in the "delur era of two cars
and banish poverty," the initial meet-
ings were devoted solely to discus-
sion on religious beliefs and philoso-
phical theory, Dr. Blakeman remi-
nisced. Recent Parleys have, he
