Both Odlen anc Levin, admitted Communists, wen turned over by the veteran police tc Officer George Greenip of No. 11. Waddington said he and two othei veterans would testify against Odier on sedition charges if the Crime Pre vention Division decided such charges could properly be made. Police said about 15 others were unde: ■urveillance. Meantime, the' arrival of a part o the "left wing” or radical section o: the New York contingent caused somi stir in the camps. These men number ing less than 100 were segregated b; the camp commander from the rest o: the veterans and are being kept undei close watch. Police Have Material. The material so far seized by thi veterans’ Dolice and turned over to thi metropolitan police consists of leaflet! published by the league. On* of the pamphlets seized contain; an attack cn the manner in which thi Washington Police Department is co operating wiih the veterans. "The veterans' d'legations are com ing to Wrshington to bring pressure or Congress and not to be supervised ovei by the M tropclitan Police," the pam phlet read. As to flogging and chasing the so called radicals out of the camps, the pamphlet stated: "Who gave Mr. Waters (former com mander of the veterans) or anybody else any authority to escort to the Dis trict line any veterans because of opin ions they might hold?’’ The veterans' pqlice were continuing to weed out all undesirables throughout the afternoon. An application for a permit to parade In front of the Capitol tomorrow, filed by the Workers' Ex-Service Men's League, a Communistic organization, was rejected today by David Lynn, architect of the Capitol, following a conference with Vice President Curtis and Speaker Garner. The league’s permit to parade in the District of Columbia probably would be held up because of this decision, it was ■aid. "Such ft demonstration would be un warranted,” Mr. Lynn explained. I’lan conference. The decision was a blow to members of the National Provisional Bonus March Committee of the league, inas much as they said they obtained Vice President Curtis' assurance last Satur day that the demonstration could be heid. Emmanuel Levin, chairman of the committee, said he would hold a con ference with members of the league already in camp here and see if they desire him to press again for a permit. If they desire this move, he said, and the permit is again rejected, "we will hold another conference." Until a final rejection is handed down, the leadar went ahead with prep arations for the demonstration, which, according to Mr. Lynn, "positively will not be held.’ "We call on all bonus marchers.” Le vin raid, "and veteran residents of Wa hington to march in the parade to night in a united support of demands for the immediate payment of the bonus and to present to Congress to rn rrcw the -.petition for the bonus through a patzete and demonstration of all veterans at the Capitol." Careful plans have been laid to pre vent Communists mixing in with the Bonus Expeditionary Force about the Capitol and to keep all avenues of traf fic wide open. • The police board of the Capitol has decided with the approval of the Speaker and other leaders that the proposed Eicentennial pageant in the Capitol plaza scheduled for June 20 should be postponed indefinitely. Due not only to the congestion about tUe Capitol by bonus marchers and other visitors, but also on account of the closing rush for adjournment of Congress it was decided advisable that no obstruction should be allowed at this time in the Capitol plaza The proposed pageant was to have been a one-night affair, but the plans called for rehearsal on four days, and the District of Columbia Bicentennial Commission, under the leadership ol Dr. George C. Havenner, was de sirous of immediately setting out plat forms, chairs and other paraphernalia In the Capitol plaza. The usual Capitol police force of ap SPECIAL NOTICES. SPECIAL NOTICE.

These policemen are stationed In the corridors, particu ' larly at the House end, of the Capitol and are doing patrol duty In the cor ridors of the House Office Building, , where there Is the largest group of vet eran bonus marchers visiting the offices of the members of Congress from va rious States. These police are on duty to prevent any disorders and to pre vent members of Congress from being inordinately annoyed by groups ol visitors. 7.000 in capital Now. Many members of Congress have is sued gallery cards to the veterans who have been crowding the galleries of the House to such an extent as practi cally to crowd out other visitors. Start ing today the veterans having gallery cards will be admitted to the card gal leries, but not to the other sections, which must be reserved for other visitors I and sightseers. | Approximately 7,000 veterans from ' every State in the Union were in the | Capital today. Under police care at 5 | a m. were 5,711, divided as follows: Ana • costia, 4.517: Twelfth and D streets , I southwest, 450; Eighth and I street* : southeast, 440; Seventh and L streeus ,' southwest, 314. Other ex-soldiers were , arriving by the scores and hundreds by freight, trucks, automobiles and on foot. Approximately 1,000 on whom po lice have no check were estimated to be staying with friends and relatives, r.t the city missions and the cheap lodg ing houses. The food problem was relieved tem , porarlly today by the purchase of 1.000 ; pounds of meat, quarter of a ton of potatoes, 1,000 loaves of bread, 300 ’ pounds of rice, 4 cases of milk, 200 pounds of coffee, 300 pounds of cugar ! and 3 cases of tomatoes. The pro i vsions were bought on credit and will j be paid for from proceeds taken in r.t I tomorrow night's athletic show at the ! Griffith Stadium. ilMtruirnt v am u a ai.ix • Glassford’s statement of last night, concerning a radical plot, was branded today as “being false in its entirety” by the ranking Communist leader :n Washington. He has requested that his identity be not revealed The police official said he had gath ered Information that a Communist plot had been formulated to cause "blood shed" in the parade tonight. "At a recent meeting,” Glassford's statement read, "one of the Communist • speakers said that there could be no gain by lobbying; that what was need ed was forced bloodshed or otherwise. Plans were then laid for organization, of 100 men into a combat flghtog unit ; to combat police. ® I “Pennsylvania avenue will be roped ; off in order that the situation mav be handled bv the police should there be j any interference with the veterans’ . parade. j "No difficulty whatsoever is antici pated with the veterans who will par 1 ticipate in the parade. The Police De partment will do everything possible to prevent any interference pith the march by outside agencies.” The ranking CommunLst leader said j that it was "natural that Mr. Glass ford would attempt to pass the buck on to us In event there are some disorders I tonight.” Expects to Be Blamed. “We feel assured.” he asserted, "that if there is the slightest semblance of a fight the Communist party will be blamed. "As far as the Communist party is concerned this affair is a movement on the part of the Workers' Ex-Service Men's League, which has caused to be massed here veterans who are 100 per cent Americans. “Naturally we have discussed the movement, but only from one angle. We want to see the veteran successful in his demands for full payment of the bonus. We think that such is due him.” The Radical Committee, which is composed of some of the ranking Com munist agitators in this country, in cluding James Ford, colored, candidate far Vice President of the United States on the Communist party ticket, was in a somewhat state of bewilderment this morning. All efforts to get word to their mem bers in camp here, which is not more than 5 per cent of the total number of veterans, were meeting with failure. A request for an interview with the com mander of the expeditionary forces was also denied. Twelve marching members of the league slept on the lawn in front of the league's headquarters last night. They haiied from New York and are part of the "left wing" contingent of the New York delegation. When they reported to the Anacostia camp later on in the day they were segregated by the commander of the camp along with the rest of the “left wing” group. uuaruea uy roiitcuirn. Two uniformed policemen stood guard over the outfit as it dug in last night in front of the headquarters at 905 I street, and it was reported that two plainclothesmen followed them to An acostia. The committee branded Glassford's statement that its members were at tempting to incite a riot here tonight as a "provocation of the most shame less kind." "Glassford's statement." said Levin, speaking for the committee, “which has not the slightest foundation of facts, is an attempt to divide the ranks of the bonus marchers and to lay the basis for further police control and sur veillance of the rank and file, the policy which has made the bonus marchers military prisoners in concentration camps in Washington. "It should be remembered that the same policy of studied provocation as an excuse for the most extensive police concentration was followed by Glassford Marchers Take Over Train A PORTION of the crowd of 900 former soldiers assembled outside the ! A Pennsylvania Railroad yards at Cleveland, Ohio, as they climbed aboard ' Z_1 one of the locomotives seized when officials of the road refused their 1 1 request for a freight train for transportation to this city, .so that they might join their comrades in the fight for the bonus. They threatened to tie up all operations £nless their wishes were granted. —Wide World Photo. “Boityis Marchers” Prepare for Big Parade Tonight during the recent hunger March. This policy, which is the joint policy of the Hoover administration and the Demo crat party in Congress, is based on the theory that workers, veterans or otherwise, have no rights which the po lice are bound to respect. Even in mak ing demands on Congress they are to be spied upon, regimented and treated ' as potential criminals.” In regard to the accusation made by Glassford that orders for a riot were Is sued during a meeting of the league and the Communist party. Levin said: "No such statements have been made in any meeting under our auspices and the alleged statements, if made, were made by agents of the police. Activities Well Known. "We have never held any meetings at 1105 New Hampshire avenue, as charged by Glassford. Our purpose here is to organise unity and united efforts to en force the demands of the veterans for the immediate cash payment of the bonus." The activity of the league is well known to veterans encamped here, ac cording to opinions expressed by a num ber of former soldiers today. They re ferred to the league as "that red outfit" as each expressed himself as not favor ing any part of the program fostered by the unit. The veterans conceded that the league mav have originated the movement to march on Washington as it claims, but they give full credit to the Oregon dele gation for making it a success as the result of its clash with railroad officials at St. Louis. Two Lancaster. Pa . veterans declared today that the league had been active in their section of the country distribut ing propaganda, which was discarded by the veterans without giving it a thought. "We flogged two birds in the court house square at home because their ac tivity became a nuisance,” the Lan caster veterans declared. "We are here on a peaceful mission in an effort to collect what we believe the Government owes us. We are go ing to sleep under the: canopy of the skies until our demands are nlet. Our morale is high and we have no com plaints to make about the treatment in the camp. You have never seen a real veteran complain about anything yet— the life in the trenches or in camp. He would rather brag about the fun he is having.” In a further effort to guard the health of the men at Anacostia. two physicians from the Health Department—Drs. W. J. Duncan and R M. Rosenberg—were sent in this morning to give whatever treatment was necessary, their efforts supplementing those of doctors who are handling the bulk of tne ailing veter ans at the Marine Reserve headquarters, near police headquarters. A number of the men who have sustained cuts had their injuries treat ed and clean bandages applied. The Police Department sent down a huge truckload of food, principally beef and bread, just before noon. Two women, who were said to have worn Communist emblems and to have been talking Communism, were report ed to have been escorted from the camp this morning, but camp officials said they knew nothing of it. 4 IIUIU4S « isus vamp. Senator Thomas was an early morn ing visitor at the camp, where he was brought by John Simpson, president of the National Farmers' Union, who wanted the Oklahoman to get a close up view of the invading army. Thomas talked to leaders of the bonus expeditionary force and after ward said that he would present their case before the Appropriations Sub committee and see what could be done about it. The veterans want tents from the War Department and they are also anxious that some arrangements be -, made to transport here food which the Iowa farmers told them yesterday was at their disposal if they could get it on the grounds, Simpson pointed out that to furnish tents would cost the Government noth ing: just what arrangements might be made to bring the food here is con jectural. Senator Thomas and Simpson were photographed with several groups cf the veterans but the Senator was forced to decline an invitation to address them because of the impending committee meeting. He was cheered repeatedly when his presence was announced. His is the first visit of the nature that has been made to the camp. a __j Aiman in Command. The flare-up over the designation of a commander in chief for the bonus expeditionary force which occurred yes terday afternoon when W. C. Cox was appointed to that post by a quorum of the Steering Committee of the veterans, which at the same time removed George Aiman. apparently had subsided today with Aiman back in the saddle. ‘‘Let's have a good parade," he said. A check-up at Anacostia which was begun yesterday morning by order of Supt. of Police Glassford. and was not concluded until this morning, showed that 2,077 men are on the grounds. A telegram received by Aiman this morning from Las Angeles said that a group totaling 17,000 was ready to leave there Thursday. The telegram read: "How many bonus marchers are in the Washington bonus army of the United States? Los Angeles has 17,042 enlisted, with 3.000 at local points to join the first regiment. Will leave about Thurs day. Rations and transportation are arranged all the way to Washington. Awaiting your reply before we move. Answer." It was signed by Arthur G. McQuary, as "field marshall.” Aiman read this telegram at the morning meeting at Anacostia and an nounced that he had answered it. Sergt. Ray Smith, who was former heavyweight champion of the American Expeditionary Forces, came to Anacos tia this morning and announced that 17 agencies in Camden, N. J.. were collecting food, the Jerseyites having formed the advance guard of the vet erans now encamped there. Epidemics Threatened. An epidemic of typhoid or dysentery. ! or both, threatens the bonus 'marchers encamped at Anacostia unless sanitary steps are taken immediately, Maj. Don S. Knowlton. U. S. M. C. Reserves, medical officer in charge of treating the veterans, told the press last night, after making his daily report to Glassford. The increase of ailments among the men was pointed out last night as an » ominous sign. On Monday, a week ago. 54 men were treated: yesterday 158 applied for medical care. During the week the marchers have been encamped 626 have been treated. More than a dozen of yesterday's suf- ! ferers were treated for pleurisy, a re sult. the major said, of exposure in Sun day night's rain. The number of men with sore throats, too. showed an in- j crease. The condition of the veterans’ teeth is deplorable, it was said, and wholesale extractions are being made. Yesterday again brought donations from Washingtonians to the hastily established “bonus clinic” at 6th Re serve Marine Brigade Headquarters on Indiana avenue. W. C. Kloman, head of the Kloman Instrument Co., made a substantial con tribution of surgical instruments: Dr. M. G. Gibbs, president of Peoples Drug Stores, made a third donation of medi cines, disinfectants and other para phernalia. and all physicians and sur geons in the Washington and Columbia Medical Buildings gave medicines and equipment. Committee Agrees. Grave dissension appeared to have broken out in the veterans' ranks yes terday with the rump election of Cox as "commander in chief” of the forces. Alman was tossed out by nine of the 17 members of the Legislative Com mittee, meeting in secret session at the "barracks,” at Eighth and I streets southeast. But he "bounced back” Into command four hours later when the whole committee, acting in "harmony,” according to the veterans' publicity, man, repudiated Cox and renamed Alman. » The sudden shift in leadership appar ently was sponsored by veterans outside tl* Oregon division, the first on the ground here, and was ascribed to a j "clash of ideas.” Although they chose j another Oregon man in Cox, this was not satisfactory to the rank and file of the Oregon veterans, who almost to a man were behind Alman. William Keyser, one of the "quorum” which deposed Alman at a meeting about 2 o’clock, four hours later placed SOME of the scenes at the main bonus expeditionary force camp, in Anacos tia, today where the population had swelled to more than 5.000.

Alman, one of the most forceful of the veteran leaders, is said to be dis liked by many of the conservative and | reactionary element because of so-called • radical'’ tendencies. He is not a Communist, however, and has said he has “never had time to look into this Comunist business.” When the bonus bill is passed, however, ne said he would “give it a thought.” Will Act as Marshal. Reinstated as commander in cruel, it appeared likely today that Alman would lead the parade tonight as grand marshal. Accompanying him will be his ‘‘general staff," composed of A. F. Taylor, Oregon division commander; Mike Thomas, commander of the Ana costia encampment, and Elmer Jensen, Twelfth and D streets southwest. The Executive Committee of the War Veterans of America, a new organiza tion which has temporary headquar ters at 2626 Pennsylvania avenue and claims some 300 members among Dis trict ex-service men, has come out against the leadership of one man for all the bonus marchers now here. Dan O’Brien, ‘‘king of the hoboes,” after a mass meeting last night in Franklin Park, today called on all hoboes throughout the country who are ex-service men to meet in Washington and join the fight for the bonus. He said he would demand “good food and clean beds" for the army of bums. Still Coming In. Marchers continued to come into camp from all sections of the country during the day. Early this afternoon a group arrived from Pennsylvania. They were mostly colored. They said they expected about 300 others later in the day as they are marching to Wash ington. some arrivals came irom as iar as Utah. One car pulled in from Indiana. fVn automobile, coming from New Jersey, carried a wheel chair for the use of one of the occupants. He is Joseph Fofrich of Perth Amboy, a miner, who suffered i broken back in a mine accident. He was also wounded overseas. . Police Chief Olassford visited the camp at Anacostia early in the after noon. Because of the influx of veterans, he announced he would supply two ad ditional rolling kitchens. "Have you any complaints about my policemen?” Glassford asked the vet erans gathered about him. The veterans' answer was a cheer. Waters, former commander of the marchers, left his bed at Walter Reed Hospital this morning against doctor’s advice and visited the camps. He drop ped his command because of a nervous breakdown. He said his only thought was to serve in the ranks. — 28 yeqrs of service has brought to me a large per centage of patients referred by hundreds of satisfied people.

HUNDREDS MORE JK COMING HERE Reinforcements for Bonus “Army” En Route From Widely Scattered Points. By the Associated Press Reinforcements marched, hooked rides and motored today toward Washington to lend their presence to the appeal for a two-billion-dollar bonus for World War veterans. ♦ At Washington It was parade day, with a touch of Red offering a prospect of fireworks. Police there announced that a Communist plot to “combat the police with violence" had been discov ered. Rev. James R. Cox, who led a bat talion of unemployed to Washington during the Winter, was considering sev eral requests to act as spokesman in laying the veterans' plea before the President and Congress The men, he said, are not seeking a “bonus," but are claiming "pay" that “they should have had 14 years ago." The problem of feeding the marching, hitch-hiking, freight-riding forces con tinued to vex many communities through which the men passed, but so far it has been met. 2,000 at Los Angeles. Leaders of unemployed World War veterans at Los Angeles expected to head a procession of 2.000 out of there today to demand Immediate payment of the bonus. By nightfall yesterday, It was stated, 600 veterans had presented honorable discharges from the Army, Navy or Marine Corps as qualification for en listment in the “Bonus Expeditionary Force.” leaders were elected, motor car* promised and assets pooled. Rules were adopted against “panhandling," fire arms. liquor, gambling and radical talk. The leaders said the ranks included for mer commissioned officers. One woman was registered—Mrs. W. J Hull of Los Angeles—who said her husband had been out of work two years. Texans Seise Train. Some 500 Texas “bonus marchers" swept aside a handful of railway guards at Texarkana today and swarmed aboard a northbound freight train. None was injured in the brief struggle with the railroad officers, who made a futile gesture of resistance. A part of the “arjny," about 125 World War veterans from the East Texas oil field area, had been delayed here since Sunday by the refusal of railroad officials to permit them to ride freight trains The group was swelled to about 500 with the arrival of delega- j lions from Dallas and other Texas cities I yesterday. John Patman, father of Representa- j five Wright Patman, chief bonus advo cate, addressed the men.'He was cheered ■ enthusiastically. 206 at Culpeper, Va. Two hundred and six bonus marchers, who had been riding a freight train, were left in a pasture at Culpeper, Va.. last night as the train crew cut the locomotive loose from the cars and left them 62 miles south of Washington. The group included 148 iead by B. H. Boyter of Greenville. S. C., and 58, led by John L. Talbert of Columbus. Ga While they waited, colored veterans in the crowd entertained with spirituals and Edward Perkins, a colored preacher from Greenville, prayed for transporta tion. The American Legion at Culpeper sought to procure transportation, but was unsuccessful. Members of the train crew, working for the Southern Railway, said they were not allowed to carry the ex-sol diers across the Virginia line into the District of Columbia, and when they re fused to leave their perches on the train, the cars were uncoupled from the engine. Halted at State Line. Philadelphia's group of about 200 veterans were halted for a short time at the Pennsylvania State line near Claymore. Del., yesterday until State police received assurance from leaders that the veterans would not stop in Delaware. The police explained that because neither Wilmington nor the State had made provision for caring for the vet erans overnight, it was necessary that they pass through Delaware without stopping, except for brief rest periods. Sixty-seven veterans from Denver. Colo., encamped today on the hanks of the Sanitary Canal, at Chicago, await ing a ride to Washington. Spokesmen for the veterans said: ‘‘The railroad provided transportation all the way from Denver. The train crews solicited food for us in the towns." Merchants of Blue Island fur nished food for today's meals. YOUNG TELLS CHICAGO BANKERS OF AID PLANS - I Conference on Stimulation of Busi ness Is Held Behind Closed Doors. By the Associated Press.
