Meantime, the California contingent continued its so-called 'march of death" qn the sidewalks in frcnt of the Capitol. Roy W.

Efforts by Urban LeDoux, better known as Mr Zero, to make a speech to the veterans from the Capitol steps met with boos from the veterans. They refused to listen to him. Mr. Zero, who has been in Washington for about a ■week, has affiliated himself with the California contingent. An effort bv In spector Headley to make an address ' also met with boa·; Waters reappeared on the steps of the Capitol a few minutes after his initial address, and informrd his com rades that Speaker Garner said he would meet Waters and his committee at noon. He promised to acquaint them with the result of the parler. Waters also said that he had been asked why the Β Ε. F. wou'd not re turn home, and he declared that no army in the history of America had ever j quit while fighting for a principle, and I that the Β Ε F would not be the first I to do so He added also that many of the men had no homes to which to return, and these who did would have nothing to do when they got there. Comdr Waters later appeared and said that he had been denied an inter view with President Hoover, which he had sought all the morning. Waters continued that a national po- ' litic^l organisation had been chartered | with the Β Ε. F. as a nucleus. He said there would be a convention some time within the next week He had reason I to believe, he said, that this organiza- I tion eventually would have a voting itrength of 25.000.000. The crowd was kept quiet by singing and speeches by Carter. Waters' aide, while the general'' disappeared within the Capitol. He cam» back a few min utes later, and 'aid h= had been eranted an interview with Speaker Garner at noon. Waters Calls on Garner. An hour after he had been released ι bv police. Waters and a committee rep resenting the Β. E. F called on Speak er Garner and delivered a protest against adjournment of Congress until "some material relief" for the bonus army in Washington, and the bonus bill itself, had been passed. Newspaper men were barred from the interview, and after the conference had been con cluded. Waters told the press Garner had agreed to "make every effort" to prevent adjournment. But the Speaker, interviewed bv newspaper men. said he had made no such statement, merely telling Waters ί and the committee that he would lay j the Β Ε F. proposa1* before his col- ; leaeues for consideration.

Waters went out on the portico of the Capitol, where he told the thousands ' of assembled veterans that the Demo- ι cratic nominee for Vice President had ί promised to "use all his influence to prevent adjournment of Congress, and also use all his influence to obtain an S appropriation to buy food for the > Β Ε.

This statement already had been I denied by Garnir to newspaper men who doubted Waters' story of the conference. ; After Waters ha-i concluded his ad dress to the men. th» demonstration ; began breaking up. and the veterans ( started the trek back to their camps ! icr dinner.

In discussing the Garner conference, j Waters said he had "voiced the protest ! of the veterans assembled in Washing- ι ton against adjournment of Congress ! until proper legislation has been passed j for the bonus army, and until the bonus I bill has been enacted. He quoted Garner ss saving in reply that he would "discuss cur proposals I ■with his colleaeues. end make ever" effort possible to comply with your re quest." In contradiction. Garner told news paper men: "My exact words were that I would take their suggestions under considéra- : tion and advise my colleagues about not ! adjourning until the bonus bill was con- j sidered. Then they asked me about tak ing a recess, and I said I would take their request under consideration and impart it to my colleagues. I expressed no opinion with respeci to not adjourn in e at this time. Before the meeting of veterans broke up.

In concluding his speech Waters re quested the vétérans to leave the grounds, or "join that outfit over there," pointing to the Californians. The veterans cheered the commander In chief loudly, and immediately began ; to clear off the Capitol steps, which a few hours before they had attempted to j take possession of without permission and almost participated a near-riot with | police. At the request of Roy W. Robertson, j leader of the California veterans group, ■who paraded all night in the rain, th; | military police set un by the veterans. | early in the morning had removed their arm bands and joined in the march. ' If there is going to be any police in this business/ Robertson said, "the District of Columbia can furnish them." Denied Hoover Interview. Eugene Γ. Everett, representing Waters, had told newspaper men at the White House earlier that he had failed in an effort to secure an interview for Waters with President Hoover for today. Everett S3id one of the President's secretaries had informed him that the Chief Executive was too occupied. Everett said he informed White House officials that despite the plan of one wing of the bonus army to picket the White House after the adjournment of Congress, the main body under : Waters would not take part in any such movement, believing it "undignified." Thf effort to make an app intment with the President.

Offhand, he said he kn^w of no statute prohibiting th° men from marching to end fro before the White House as they have been doing at the Capitol for the past four and a half days. From the squalid mud flats at Ana costia. practically every veteran en camped trudgrd up to Capitol Hill this morning to .join Robertson and his band. Similarly, all the oth-r encamp ments of veterans scattered throughout the Capital turned out. in full fnrre to register their objections to Congress' adjournment. At th·» height of the rush hour this morning the streets in Southeast Wash ington were jammed with tattered hordes of veterans, wending their way to the Capitcl. Scattered among th? hungry men. who have been here now for seven weeks, were a number of women and children, accompanying their husbands and fathers to the dem onstration. As the n»*w men began arriving. Rob ertson's band gave way and withdrew for some mu"h-needed sleep. The 500 men under his command have been marching in relays continuously almost for five days, without a break, except for a brief ppriod of less than an hour yesterday, when Communist veterans assembled in front, of the Library of Congress and drafted a petition for presentations to both Houses of Con gress. Communists Withdraw. Robertson, fearing his men would clash with the "reds." withdrew to Peace Monument, where the ' march of death" was continued. When the Communist veterans threatened to take over the plaza and put on a march of their own. Robertson ordered his men back to the tfillets They had hardly gotten back to their grounds, however, before the Communists withdrew and the Californiens, therefore, resumed the "march of death." Extra police details were ordered on duty at the Capitol Plaza, due to the increase in numbers of veterans. Here tofore. during the death march, less than 50 Metropolitan police have pa trolled the grounds. The spirits of th? veterans reached a new high level last night when the match was in full swing. Bugles and drums were brought out for the first time by the recruits to the "march of death." and the m^n began cheering and singing intermittently. Vice President Curtis arrived at the Capitol at 8 a.m.. shortly after a re inforcement of approximately 500 vet erans began to congregate In front of the Congressional Lib.ary. The Vice President went immediately to his cfllce ifter observing from his automobile that the veterans were still on the march.

It was at this point that Borah and Senator Olass. Democrat, of Virginia, insisted that there had been no record vote in the House r.n the am»ndm*nt and declined flatly to give way to the House. Senator Glass, in his most vigorous style, said: "If we want to let the House legislate for use we can yield now If we do not want to be perpetually dictated to by the Heure we will insist upon this amendment." House Responsible. Senator Norris. Republican.of Nebraska, declared the Borah-Glass amendment was the most important thing in the heme loan bank bill. He said as far as he was concerned if this amendment was not to be adopted, he would let the home loan bank bill die. Senator Borah said the House would then have to take the consequences of its refusal to vote on this amendment.

All so far is to increase taxes and make loans. "We have not done anything what ever to stabilize the prices of commodi ; ties." The home-loan bill is the last of the emergency reconstruction proposals ad vocated by the administration, and was sponsored through tile Senate by Sena tor Watson.

"The greatest crime which ever has been committed bv any Congress against the masses of the people—the small home owners—will be the heri tage of this Congress if it adjourns without passing the h«Bie loan bank bill."

CAPPER DEFENDS GLASSFORD ACTION Commends D. C. Police Chief for Averting Trouble With Veterans. Gen. Glaasford's tactic* in handling war veterans engaging In the "march of death" on the Capitol Ground* was defended today by Chairman Capper of the Senate District Committee, who declared the police chief "has earned full confidence." Coming to Gen. Glaseford's defense after Vice President Curtis and Speaker Oarner had repudiated his action In permitting the veterans to continue the»r march. Senator Capper declared: "In his handling of the difficult situ ation created by the presence of the war veterans In the city, Gen. Glass ford has earned full confidence. It would have been a most unfortunate thing had serious disorder resulted from the presence of the "bonus army"; un fortunate both for the city and the country. Glad Violence Averted. "It seems to me that in handling the matter in a way to avert such a mis fortune Gen. Glassford has demon strated a high ability and earned the confidence of the entire city.

Glassford, and said "He has displayed eminent good sense in a most dangerous situation. "It would have been tragedy, indeed, had violence been used on these vet erans, whose good temper, good conduct and sobriety have been conspicuous." The attacks on the police chief were an outgrowth of a faux pas of calling for the Marines night before last. The Capitol Police Board, composed of Sen ate Sergeant at Arms David S Barry.

LEWIS WARNS POWER*. Declares No Debt Part Final in Sen ate's Absence. By thft Associated Pre-ft. Senator Lewis. Democrat, of Illinois, said in the Senate today: "There Is no theory of our Governmrnt by which the arran?ements of foreign nations ran bind the United States" to a moratorium or debt cancellation while Congress ts out of session. Assailing what he termed "volun tary international .rtatesmen and finan cial brokers, called international bank ers. w ho assume as world affairs lobby ists to include the United States in their audacious assumption of authority and power," Lewis said: "We wish the nations of the earth to know that any modification of obliga tions between the United States due from other nations of the world can only be consummated by affirmative action by the people of the United States themselves or by the legislative body which speaks in b-half of the people, the United States S-nate." Lewis contended the contins election would bring forth an expression from the people on debts and in this con nection touched on the agreement be tween the United States and Canada over the St. Lawrence waterway with this comment : "Only from the voice or expression of the people will we obtain what is the will of our Nation and what would be the beneficial course to our country in any international arrangement, par ticularly any presumed treaty now rumored as secretly consummated be tween the representatives of Canada and the United States." Congress is adjourning. Lewis said, "with the understanding" that world powers will "not assume by expression to include us in arrangements they are making for themselves on the theory that if there be no denial upon our part or immediate official repudiation, such silence sneaks approval." Other Democrats in Congress say they are not quite f.ure of President Hoover's attitude toward war debts revision, not withstanding his recent letter to Senator Borah promising that a European com bination would not coerce the United States into action. Just about the time the State Depart ment indicated anew yesterday that it would accept an invitation to participate in a conference sponsored by the League of Nations to discuss financial and economic questions, the President's let ter was called to the attention of the Senate by the Democratic leader, Sena tor Robinson of Arkansas. •'It seems to me that the policy of the administration has meant a revision of these debts." Robinson said. "We will be asked to say again whether we will transfer this burden to the Amer ican taxpayer or leave It where it belongs." Senator Harrison.
