HAUK WITHDRAWS; KILLIAN TO OBTAIN COMMANDER POST Morristown Candidate Quits Race as Voting Nears; Friends Blame ‘Too Much Republican Politics.’ DE PAUW PRESIDENT UNDER FIRE Dr. Oxnam Accused in Resolution of Bringing Radical and Pacifist Speakers to Campus; Colmery Speaks. BY ARC II STEINEL Timfs Staff Writer Just before delegates to the Indiana Department of the American Legion were ready to cast their ballots this after noon in what was expected to be a bitter partisan battle for state commander, L. V. Hank, Morristown, said he would withdraw in favor of ids opponent, I>r. A. R. Killian, La fayette, and would second his nomination. Friends of Mr. Jiauk said the withdrawal from the race, when he was believed to hold the balance of power, was prompted by "too much Republican politics.” Unless there is a nomination from the lloor, which is considered unlikely, Dr. Killian will be elected without opposition. As the delegates gathered at Keith’s Theater this morn ing for the last business session of the convention, Dr. Killian was supposed to have the in- j side track on the election, be cause of the location of his home in the northwest sec tion of the state. The fact that Frank R. Kossa. re tiring commander, of Jeffersonville, lives in the southern section, was believed to have boosted his stock. Harry W. Colinery. Topeka, prom- ■ inent candidate for Legion national | commander, today urged the Legion ' to “meet the challenge of the : church on the question of national; defense and permanent peace." "It is rather strange,” he said, "that 49 ministers, five priests and two rabbis—who can't even agree on who God is and what day is Sun day—should in two years sign state ments that the American Legion has a vicious lobby and that it | ought to be investigated. i Recalls War Sermons “Let's go back to the sermons they preached during the war, urging Americans against the Hun: re naming sauer kraut liberty cabbage, and saying it was all right for the boys to drink and smoke and swear | and even run around with women so long as they won the war.” Mr. Colmorv took a slap at the Federal Administration when he urged the Legion to join hands with the National Economy Leaghe and the United States Chamber of Commerce In their drive for j economy in government, “before the disabled veterans of the war must bear the burden of maintaining the nation's credit." And he swung into an attack on j "Communism" bv naming five so-1 cieties he says must be the target ; of a Legion drive, "because.” he said, "we can not and will not sac rifice the constitution of the country to the encroachment of Communism or any other ism.” Munrie Gets '36 Session The organization he branded as Communistic are The American Civil Patriots Union. The National Student League. The Committee of Militarism in Education, the Wom en's Inter-league for Peace, and the Fellowship of Reconciliation. He also scored the Legion itself for "wasting ammunition on long range at opposing groups instead of that opposition by directing its thought." Tli? northern district and south ern district vice-commanderships became uncontested just before the election with the withdrawal of op position to Russell Rhodes. Peru, and William Hyland. Evansville, re spectively. George Litchfield. Jasper, south ern vice commander, presided at the closing day session of the legion convention in the absence of Com mander Kossa. who left last night for Texas to attend the funeral of his father. Muncie was selected over Ft. Wayne as the convention city for next year. Muncie was defeated for this year's convention by Indian apolis. Seek 1936 I\ S. Session A strong effort to bring the 1936 national convention of the Ameri can Legion to Indianapolis was be gun by department officers. The 1935 convention meets in St. Louis this fall. Dr G.

VOLUME 47—NUMBER 145 LEGION WOMEN ATTACK ‘REDS’ Urge Drive to Stamp Out Communism in Schools and Colleges. BY HELEN LINDSAY Times Staff Writer A direct blow at Communism, which they consider “rampant in the schools and colleges of the United States” was struck today by delegates to the Indiana American Legion Auxiliary convention. In resolutions adopted at the clos ing sesion in the Masonic Temple, the delegates opposed the appoint ment as teachers of any persons af filiated with the Third Interna tionale, or advocates of Communism. Charging that atheistic and com munistic propaganda is "confusing the minds and souls of American youth,” the delegates further urged the exclusion of foreign Communist students from schools and colleges, and urged a strong national policy (Turn to Page Ten) MANAGING EDITOR OF MEMPHIS PAPER DEAD James K.

SWARM ACROSS BORDER Dispatches Arouse Interest of Diplomats Gathered in Addis Ababa. BY EDWARD BEATTIE United Press Staff Correspondent (Copyright. 1935, by United Press). ADDIS ABABA. Aug. 27 Reports reaching here today said more than 12.000 Somalis, chiefly troops and equipped with machine guns, have deserted the Italian army and have offered their services to Emperor Haile Selassie I. Ethiopian officials refused to con firm or deny the report but it is known that in recent months up wards of 15.000 natives of Eritrea and Somaliland, including native troops have crossed the borders of those respective Italian colonies into Ethiopia. The latest exodus, it was reported, occurred several days ago and the soldiers and natives have been ar riving in groups of hundreds at Walwal, safely within Ethiopia. The reports aroused high interest in diplomatic circles which have been waiting to see which way the native tide would turn in view of the impending Italian invasion. The soldiers were said to have crossed the borders openly proclaim ing their allegiance to the emperor and announcing their readiness to die for him. Many diplomats here have pre dicted such difficulties for Italy, pointing cut that although the bor der lands cf Ethiopia are controlled by the Italians, French and British, an Ethiopian, regardless of which flag he is under, remains a subject of his emperor. Emperor Pledges Protection The emperor has pledged protec tion for all legations to the extent that his army can supply it. He has warned, however, that property should not be left unprotected since the government will refuse to recog nize war loss claims. The populace of Addis Ababa con tinued serene today but full of cu riosity as to approaching events. The Ethiopian ar<ny continued., drilling and 100 skilled motor drivers were dispatched to Ogaden Province to man American motor trucks to be used if Italy attacks. The trucks were acquired last spring when the Italian crisis first became acute. Meantime, reports that Italian nationals were evacuating Addis Ababa were declared groundless.

NAZIS BEHEAD YOUNG MOTHER Woman Who Permitted Her Three Children to Starve Killed by Ax. (Copyright. 1935. by United Press). BERLIN, Aug., 27. Charlotte Juenemann, 24, believed to be an expectant mother, was beheaded by battle ax today at Ploetzenss Prison. She permitted her three children tc starve to death. Adolf Hitler, her only hope, re fused to intervene. He left yester day for a cruise with the Baltic fleet, on maneuvers. Willy Gehrke, condemned in an other case, perished with her by the ax of the silk-hatted Nazi headsman. Frau Juenemann’s death brought to an end a sordid story of direst poverty and of the effort of a wo man of weak intellect to find in the vile dens of the city's poorest sec tions her idea of the glamour of life. Her crime was that she spent the money given to her by relief organi zations in low cases—treating men friends—and even gave away the milk cards that would have kept life in her children. When her head, with its sharp featured face and brown bobbed hair, rolled from an emaciated body, but one member was left of a fam ily of five—the father, who is in an insane asylum. At dawn she was led from her cell to a small courtyard in the center of the prison, accompanied by an Evangelical Church pastor who had spent half an hour with her. The cloaked, silk-hatted, white gloved executioner, August Groeb ler, former butcher of Magdeburg, and two assistants similiarly attired, were waiting. Frau Juenemann, pale, face drawn, gasped and sobbed as she saw the block. She was placed on the block and her bare, shaved neck was severed by the ax. Ten minutes later Gehrke's head fell into the basket. 1485 MEN GET JOBS ON 31 WPA PROJECTS 19,787 Now Employed on 356 Relief Programs in State.

Several congressional leaders re iterated today that they had been given informal assurances by Mr. McCarl that funds for the vital parts of the social security program could be obtained from that, or another, source. They expressed confidence that a way out of the difficulties created by the filibuster by Long, which ended only with adjournment of Congress, would be found. Quirk Report Expected Mr. McCall's assurance on this subject was said to have been given informally to Chairman James Bu chanan cf the House Appropriations Committee. At Mr. McCarl's office it was said that a study of the legal possibili ties of obtaining the money was al ready underway and that a quick formal report would be made to President Roosevelt. Resentment against Long for his blockade of the vital appropria tions w'as apparent among congres sional leaders and was reported to extend up to the White House, it self. In one quarter suggestions were I heard that President Roosevelt him self take to the air in a series of national radio addresses to put the situation before the people. Advisors Are Uncertain Whether this action would be taken in the event that funds were found to put the social security pro gram into operation, however, was uncertain. Some advisors considering the pos sibility of such an address or series of addresses by President Roosevelt indicated that they did not believe Long's tactics should be given rec ognition in such a formal manner. A decision, it was believed, will not be reached until after the status of the appropriations ques tion has been thoroughly explored with Mr. McCarl. Among those invited to the White House w’ere Senate Majority Leader Joseph T. Robinson, Speaker Joseph W. Byrns, Senator James F. Byrnes. Mr. Buchanan, and Daniel W. Bell, acting budget director. No Way of Stopping Him With every Senator in the cham ber against him, Long talked from dusk to midnight. Both the Sen ate and the House previously had agreed to adjourn at midnight. Under Senate rules there was no way of stopping him and, despite the fervent pleas of colleagues to sit down and permit the deficiency bill to pass. Long kept right on un til the adjournment resolution took effect. Long was fighting for the Senate rider to the deficiency bill calling for a 12-cent cotton loan and a 90- cent wheat loan. This issue pre vented Congress from adjourning Saturday night as scheduled. .Yesterday President Roosevelt mediated between warring congres sional factions arranged a compro mise. The cotton farmers were to get a 19-cent loan, a 1-cent advance over the loan set by AAA. The wheat farmers were to get nothing. Oratory Wins Nothing Long's tireless oratory won noth ing, either for cotton or wheat farmers, but effectively killed the deficiency bill. The cotton farmers will get their 10-cent loan, but be cause the AAA had pledged it be fore the last Senate session even convened. The wheat farmers still are minus the subsidy the coalition cf cotton and wheat Senators had hoped to obtain for them. What Long himself gained was problematical. Seme believed he had created an effective issue with which to promote his share-thc wealth candidacy for President in 1936, enabling him to appeal to farmers "as the man who fought for you in Congress.” Others believed he harmed him self politically by offending labor and accomplishing nothing for the Unra to Page Three) New guaranteed tires 15c wk.
