FRENCH AGREE TO STAND BY ITALY'S DUCE Cabinet Decides to Oppose Any Attempts to Put Curb on Rome. LOSE HOPE FOR PEACE Paris, However, Convinced War Can Be Strictly Local Affair. B*f l m Prt m PARIS. Aug 28 —The French cabinet in a three-hour session to day, was understood to have ap proved a firm French stand at Geneva against international pen alties against Italy. The cabinet has abandoned hopes of seeing the conflict in Africa set tled without war, but was increas ingly optimistic on the chances of localizing it, avoiding a breakdown of the League of Nations and Frances policy on the continent. Paris was hopeful that the ten sion between Italy and Britain would be settled as a result of the Italian decision to present Italy's case to the League Council next Wednesday. Success of the League machinery depended, however, on an agree ment by Italy to suspend military action pending a League decision. If Italy refuses, the situation is hope less. Demonstrating its anxiety over the crisis, the cabinet appointed a formidable delegation to represent France at Geneva. It will be headed by Premier Pierre Laval. Edouard Herriot and Joseph Paul-Boncour. All are veteran French stateomen and have been both premier and foreign minister. Reach Complete Deadlock Rjf I in Ull I'n PARIS.

VOLUME 47—NUMBER 146 Paralyzing Ray, Perfected by Italy’s Marconi, Stops Planes’ Motors in Air, Fleets at Sea Bu I nited Pres* CANTA MARGHERITA, Italy, Aug. 28.—Gugli elmo Marconi, inventor of wireless telegraphy, an nounced today that he was working on experiments which he believed would permit him to halt air plane motors in the air. He said he hoped to per fect some tests within the ne>:i few weeks and that the experiments generally were in an advanced stage. It was reported that he had disclosed his secret to King Victor Emmanuel and Benito Mussolini. His revelation, after years of secret experiments, came as he volunteered, at 61 years of age, for active service with the army at the front in East Africa. One of the great scien tists of all times, Marconi revealed that he expected the revolutionary ultra short waves with which he has been working to be an agent by which he may * Tree-Sitting ’ Battle On; Ray Puts Deputy in Race Sheriff Perches Deputy in Poolroom to Guard Against Gambling, Matching Morrissey's Method.

"If we learn of any gambling out there,” Chief Morrissey said, "we will move in and stop it.” Only one day after the American Legion state convention left town during which all local gambling op erations were said to have been suspended, this new symptom of un - rest on the levee sprung directly from a Municipal Court hearing this morning.

INDIANAPOLIS, WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 28,1935 not even be limited to delicate airplane motors, but may be sus ceptib'e of use on others. Marconi made his announcement to a group of newspaper men just after disclosure that he had vol unteered for active service. He intends to sail for Brazil in the liner Augustus Sept. 10 to in augurate a powerful short wave radio station at Santos. 000 HE will return to Italy about the end of September—at the time when the Italian-Ethiopian war is expected to start—and en roll in the army as a volunteer in the engineering signal corps. To do so he will renounce his present rank as captain in the navy. Marconi refused bluntly to re veal the exact nature of his experi ments, but admitted he hoped to perfect some phases before he leaves for Brazil. No definite an nouncement would be made, he said, until he had obtained patents. Those who heard the wireless wizard got the impression that if his experiments met with the ex pected success he would be able to paralyze operations of fleets and airplanes, halt automobiles, bring to a halt all types of military mechanized units and take war fare back to the foot soldier and cavalry era. 000 THERE have been many re ports, in scientific circles of rays that would halt airplanes. The one today came as a calm as sertion from the man who at 25 instituted practical wireless trans mission and who won the 1906 Nobel Prize in physics. From time to time, for the last five years, there have been reports of Marconi’s experiments, hints that he might make history in the sixth decade of his life as he did in his youth. He has spent nearly all his time cruising about Ital ian waters in his yacht Elettra which contains one of the most remarkable of scientific labora tories. In the Elettra he has experi mented year after year with the ultra-short waves. It has been re ported on apparently reliable au thority that he hoped micro and ultra short wave rays might bring'life to mankind as well as death to those who made war in the air. One report was that he believed the weaves, applied somewhat in the manner of X-rays, would elim inate many operations and make those which are necessary less dangerous. He has experimented also with operation of ships and airplanes as well as with paralysis of their motors.

Mr. Hapgood. wT.o returned here last night after imprisonment in Vigo County jail under orders of Maj. Earl Weimer. in charge of In diana Guardsmen enforcing martial law in the home city of the late Eugene V. Debs, said today he had been warned against holding meet ings out-of-doors. Mr. Hapgood. a member of the national executive committee of the Socialist Party, was released Tues day morning although he refused to promise not to return to Terre Haute and speak. ‘‘Fascist Dictatorship” Admitted The Indianapolis Socialist leader was arrested when he went to see Sheriff William Baker about the release of Leo Vernon, Madison, Wis., Socialist organizer, arrested as he made a Terre Haute speech last week. Mr. Hapgood charged here today that when he was released he de manded to know if a Fascist dicta torship had been established in America. "Not in all America,” he quoted Maj. Weimar as saying, ‘but in Vigo and Sullivan Counties a Fascist dictatorship is exactly what we have.” Maj. Weimer arrived at the Vigo County jail Monday morning to in terview him, Mr. flnpgood said. Weimer Asked for Pledge "If you are released,” he quoted Maj. Weimer as saying, "will you understand that you can hold no meetings in Vigo and Sullivan Counties?” “I have no such understanding of the situation,” Mr. Hapgood said he told the military chief. Thereupon, according to Mr. Hap good, Maj. Weimer left the jail and did not return until Tuesday morn ing. Monday, Mr. Vernon was freed. According to Mr. Hapgood, the mil itary authorities did not ask him to promise not to hold meetings in Terre Haute. When he was released, Mr. Hap good said he was informed he could not hold open air meetings in the two strike-torn counties. He de clared Maj. Weimer said indoor meetings may be held “if you don't go too far.” Efforts will be made to secure a hall for the proposed meeting, at which Mr. Thomas will speak; If none can be hired, Mr. Hapgood said, an outdoor meeting will be staged in defiance of the military order.

DEBATE LIMIT TALKED Joe Robinson Hints Senate May Pass Rule to Gag Huey. Pit United Press WASHINGTON, Aug. 28. President Roosevelt today said $72,000,000 in benefits for the aged, widowed moth ers and crippled children ap parently would have to be held up four months because of Senator lluey P. Long's filibuster which killed the third deficiency bill. Mr. Roosevelt said that a careful study revealed no source of funds to provide the benefits and that the stuation looked discouraging. . Fiscal experts are still hunting a way to provide the money, which was carried in the deficiency bill but there appeared small likelihood that the hunt would be successful. Wait for Congress All the government will be able to do. Mr. Roosevelt indicated, is to set up the machinery for adminis tration of the new social security program and wait for Congress to meet in January to supply money to finance it. The President's statement coin cided with announcement by Sen ate Majority Leader Joseph T. Rob inson that as a result of Long's action he would move in January to change the time-hallowed Sen ate rule providing for unlimited debate. The rule, a jealously guarded Senate privilege from the time of its earliest meeting, would be amended if Senator Robinson's plan is carried out to end the possibility of one-man filibusters such as Long's. Assails Long’s Tactics Long's tactics were characterized by Senator Robinson as "disgusting to the Senate and the nation.” The specific funds feared by the President to be unobtainable due to the death of the third deficiency bill are those which under the new security program would be allotted to the states to enlarge state pen sion plans, provide mothers' bene fits, aid the care of crippled children and similar social purposes. Some leaders had hoped to ob tain this money from the $4,003,- 000,000 works relief fund. Mr. Roosevelt felt this probably would be impossible. McCarl Studies Issue The situation was canvassed thor oughly with Controller General John R. McCarl and Senate and House leaders in a White House conference yesterday. Mr. McCarl is still studying the legal technicalities of the matter, but Mr. Roosevelt’s remarks were thought to indicate that while funds for establishing an office and a skeleton personnel may be provided, little else will be possible. The third deficiency bill aLso car ried funds for other purposes, but none as important as the security program. Senator Robinson did not indicate the exact nature of his rules change, except that it probably would be di- ITum to Page Three) ROOSEVELT TO SGIN NEUTRALITY ACT TODAY Bill Imposing Arms Embargo on Warring Nations Awaits Signature.
