The Miami Beach Tribune esti mated the death toll as high ‘as 70U, FKRA officials feared thrh toll would exceed 300. Airplanes which flew over the Keys reported at least two veter ans’ camps destroyed. All but the locomotive on a 12 car train which had been sent to evacuate the veterans were over turned.

The huge wave rose from the sea on one side of the Key, swept across land and lifted the hospital off Its foundations. The three story building rose to the top of the wave. It whirled around several times and then flouted swiftly on the crest of the wave out to sea. I paw nothing more of the building or any of the people who were In It at the time the wave struck. Dr. Ulster Alexander Jumped from the third story, Injuring hit back. He was the only one saved. The storm blew rocks bigger t.lmn my list through the air like millstones. This was the cause ol many deaths. Most of my buddies can't under, stand what caused the evacuation train to be delayed. The hurricane warning In Miami sturted the evacuation of the camps. But a later dispatch said (here would be no dunger, .• ■> the camps thought they could s.t it out. It was not until i or 4 o’clock Monday afternoon that the veter ans were told to get ready to leave.

LEAGUE TOLD TO KEEP HANDS OFF (Continued from Page 1.) need be .against the concerted opin ion of other nations, followed a fervent plea for solution of the dis pute by Captain Anthony Eden of Great Britain. Eden warned that collapse of the league’s efforts to bring the controversy to an end would be a world calamity. Baron Aloisi’s statement b6re out the declaration of Premier Benito Mussolini in his recent in terview with the United Press, in which iie said Italy would go ahead, "with the league dr with out the leauge or against the league.” Alolsl surprised the council when he strongly Indicated that Mussolini no longer regards the Italian-jBthiopian friendship pact of 1928 binding. e"fhe Italian government, he said, “has been obliged to conclude that the Treaty pf 1928 has failed in practice to guarantee, the peace ful existence of tjie Italian col onies. Ignores the Treaty "Therefore, Italy can no longer count upon the provisions of thut treaty. Nor, when, a country like Ethiopia is Involved, can Italy rely on purely legal guarantees to ful fill the duty of banishing forever the dangers menacing her col onics.” Alois! announced that Italy re fuses to be treated on an equal footing with Ethiopia before the league, because Ethiopia violated her obligations as a member of the league. In a remark which Gaston Jczc of Ethiopia Interpreted as an Ital ian move to oust Ethiopia from the league, Alois! said: "All solidarity with a state which allows such abuses to exist within Its borders must be refused by civilized nations. In an address preceding that of Alolsi, Premier Pierre Laval of France announced that his coun try would fully support the coun cil. He expressed confidence that a peaceful solution would be found, “which would assure Italy the sat isfaction she would clu|m without disregarding the essential rights of the Ethiopian government." Laval Confident Laval expressed satisfaction with Eden's statement that Britain re mains loyal to the collective sys tem among nations. "I maintain all my confidence In the future of the League of Na tions," he said. Alolsi presented the Italian memorandum, which said that Ethiopia, through alleged viola tions of International agreements, Is no longer fit for league mem herhlp or entitled to claim rights under the covenant. The memorandum said Ethiopia constitutes an Immediate and per manent danger to the security of Italy's colonies in East Africa, and th-.t "In rising against this Intoler able situation,'' Italy Is defending her own security as well as the prestige of both Italy and the league. Specific Charges Specifically, the memorandum charged Ethiopia with the follow ing: 1. A series of acts of terror against Itallun citizens and prop erty. 2. Wilfully violating solemn Itullan-Ethloplan agreements and Illicitly occupying Italian territory. 3. General non-observance of her obligations under the league covenant, all of which deprive her of the right to privileges as a member of the league. The league was regarded as hav ing been split wide open on the African conflict. Alolsi's speech re affirming Italy’s determination to enforce her will—coming after the pleas of Eden and Laval for peace —was described by non-partisan delegates In the lobby as "burn ing tlaly’s bridges." While Laval merely reaffirmed France'* loyalty to the league, Eden more openly demanded that Mussolini use thel cague instead of war as an Instrument to settle the controversy. At the same time he stressed Britain's friendship with Italy. League Must Make Peace Julio Lopez Ollvan of Spain, as the first speaker on behalf of the powers without a direct stake In ,4**.

Ethiopia, uttered the strongest of all when he said: "The league must, use all the means at its disposal to preserve peace.” He expressed regret that Fran co-Itritish mediation had failed. "The machinery of the covenant should be put Into action as rap idly as poslble," he said. Jeze, addressing the council for Ethiopia, commended the Ualunl verdict and said: "If the Ualual Incident no long er exists—so far, this has been the only reason put forward for Italy's military preparations—what doett exist? The Italian government now puts forward a new charge.” He warned the council that time presses, adding: "The question Is, whether there Is danger of war—whether there a war of extermination.” The council adjourned at B:02 p. rn.

GERMAN ARMY IN TESTOF MUSCLE Berlin, Sept. 4—(UP)—For the first time since the "disgrace of Versailles," a German army tested its muscles today while Berlin diplomats failed to hide their sat isfaction over Benito Mussolini's defiance of the League of Nations. The first Oerman war games since the armistice were played deep in the Interior of the country to ob viate the slightest suspicion that they might be Intended as a dem onstration against any foreign na tion. The government did every thing in its power to bring the maneuvers into the public eye. Gramophone recordings of crack ing rifles and booming “seventy fives,” made while the maneuvers were In full swing, were later broadcast to millions of Germans. Foreign military attaches were invited to watch the Brunswick and Lueneherg maneuvers, the in fantry drills held near Breslau, In Silesia, and the speedy deployment of cavalry at Mecklenburg, where the mounted forces cooperated with motorized units. The political aspect of the Ger man maneuvers, paralleling in time the League of Nations last efforts to prevent real war In Af rica, Is illuminated by the govern ment's moves to curb rejoicing over Mussolini's present estrange ment from other league powers. Nazis who a few days ago were eagerly speculating over the ad vantage Germany might gain from an Anglo-Itallan split and talking sangulnely about German annexa tion of Austria “as soon as Musso lini has his hands full,” have been brusquely muzzled.
