By the Associated Press. GIBRALTAR. November 3—Presi dent Niceto Alcala Zamora of Spain, it was learned on highest authority today, may soon resign the office lo which he was elected in 1931 after a republic «as proclaimed, and great changes may take place in the na tion's government in a few* days. Zamora Is said to be depressed by division in the cabinet of Alejandro Lerroux. whose rise to power last month was immediately followed by an uprising. The President also is affected deeply by the arrest of his soldier son, Luis, facing trial by court-martial. A mili tary official said Luis is charged wit η incitement to rebellion through the encouragement of his fellow soldier· to commit acts of disobedience. Divided on Sentences. The cabinet was divided on the question of imposition of death sen tences in connection with the revolt in Catalonia. From ministerial sources it was learned the President had granted clemency in several of the revolt cases, and that ministers of the agrarian action group objected stren uously. President Zamora's position threat ened to become precarious with the reopening of Congress, as rightist deputies demand an accounting of revolt responsibility. It was believed in some quarters the Ceda party mi nority would gather enough suppor ters to condemn the President's action and force his resignation. A reliable source said the President would confer with an important right ist leader Monday and the resignation question would then be discussed. Leftist Threat. As important government develop ments were pending, the authorities prepared against threats of a leftist revolutionary movement near Zara goza. At Oviedo Gen. Lopez Ochoa an nounced all miners giving up fire arms will be reinstalled without pen alty provided they are not members of the Revolutionary Committee or guilty of any crime. In Asturias 14 school teachers were removed after conviction as parti cipants in the revolution. At Carta gena 14 marines and a corporal were tried in summary courtmartial for an alleged attempt to revolt. The sentences will be announced later. · INDIANA PUBLISHER DIES FROM INJURIES By the Associated Press. MICHIGAN CITY, Ind., November 3.—Don M.

ROBERTS OFFERS NEW fill REROUTING PLAN People's Counsel Attacks All Proposals So Far Made for Changes. EIGHT-BLOCK TUNNEL SUGGESTED IN SCHEME Charge Made That Present Out lines Fall Far Short of Cap ital'» Meeds. j People's Counsel William A. Roberts,1 I In a brief prepared today for the Pub ! lie Utilities Commission, attacks all rerouting plans for the street car and bus lines so far introduced and sug gests a radically new set-up. Roberts contends all rerouting plans so far offered by the Capital Transit Co. or the commission's own engineers are simply an effort to eliminate a few bad spots such as the quadruple iraclcs on New York avenue and on Four teenth street. He contrasts this with statements made by proponents of the merger resolution as to the millions of dollars to be spent in improving service. He suggests a new layout which would cost $3,500,000. The most ex pensive of the company propositions would cost approximately tl.500.000 Roberts says the latter figure amounts to no more than the average annual expenses for track improvements for the period 1920 to 1926. Proposal Include* Tunnel. Roberts' plan is based on giving superior service, particularly to the Federal triangle area south of Penn 1 sylvania avenue, and the Federal rectangle area to be developed weet of the White Hom»e. He proposes a construction of a tunnel in the line of Ε street from the District Building to Twenty-second street, and north in Twenty-second street from Ε street to a point below F street. Surface track woula be built In Twenty-second street to Pennsylvania avenue. Then it would be possible for street cars operating eastbound on Pennsylvania avenue to make a right turn into Twenty-second street into the tunnel, emerging in front of the District Building and rejoining Penn sylvania avenue at about Thirteenth and a Half street. This would elimi nate some of the extreme congestion »t Fourteenth street and Pennsylvania avenue as much of the east and west 1 street car traffic would go through i the tunnel. His second major proposition is to built tracks on C street southwest | from Fourteenth to Seventh streets so street cars traveling south on ί Fourteenth street Instead of coming | to a dead line, as at present, in front ι of the Bureau of Engraving and Prin ing. would continue east on C street and north on Seventh street. Roberts suggests that the fare on all street cars and all bus lines be uniform. In this connection he has some entirely new bus routes to offer. He proposes to eliminate street car ι tracks on Conndecticut avenue north I of Porter street and on Wisconsin 1 avenue north of Nebraska avenue and on Pennsylvania avenue southeast east of Eighth street, serving exten tions from these termini by busses. ! One new bus line would start at River road and go to the downtown section by way of Wisconsin avenue, > Porter street. Thirty-fourth street. Cleveland avenue, Calvert street. Con- ! necticut avenue (across the Taft Bridge ι. Twenty-second street, Vir- } ginia avenue and Constitution avenue , to a loop around Twelfth street. ! Pennsylvania avenue and Ninth street ! and thence back to the point of ori- ι gin. Second New Bus Line. A second new bus line to serve the ' area east of Connecticut avenue to , Rock Creek Park would be brought I down to Connecticut avenue and Por- ! ter street. A third new line to serve the Fort Reno section would be brought down to the seme terminal. Roberts estimated the new con struction called for by his plans would cost $3,500.000. of which $2,000.000 would be for two tunnels, one the Ε : street tunnel already described and the other a short tunnel in Connecti- | cut avenue to permit street cars to go under Dupont Circle instead of around it. as at present suggested in all of the rerouting plans. The cost of the Ε street tunnel, Roberts contends, should be borne en tirely by the Federal Government, since its construction is mede neces sary by the congestion of Federal Government workers in the Triangle and Federal rectangle areas. He sug gests that the cost of the Dupont Circle tunnel be borne by the Public Works Administration. Roberts says he has estimates show ing that when the buildings in the Federal rectangle are complete they will house some 10,000 employes and that to load such a number during the peak half hour would call for 15 more street cars during the period than It is physically passible- to accommodate on the single track loop, which the com mission has ordered around Eight eenth and Nineteenth streets, Virginia and Pennsylvania avenues. In his attack on the rerouting plans as they now stand. Roberts points out that they are based on service in which the street cars carrying the j maximum allowable load of passen- j gers. Charge Halts Hymn Raiders At Door of Texas Night Club By the Associated Press. FORT WORTH. Tex..

IL F. to IF. F. STABILIZING AUTO IS INVESTIGATED Code Extension Is Regarded as Providing Delay for Employment Study. By tht Associated Prrss. President Roosevelt's decision in the automobile code controversy was gen erally regarded today as a compro mise attempt to prevent conflict from dbrupting industrial peace. The President issued an order lut night prolonging the N. R.

Afttr the em ployment study is completed, the President will determine whether the hearing will be held. Manufacturers had favored extend ing the code unchanged. Labor Telia Story. The President, in ordering the in quiry into stabilization of employment before the code again expires on Feb ruary 1. apparently recalled a chat he had with a blue-shirted automobile worker. The conversation took place last Winter at the Wihte House, where a labor delegation from Detroit had come to confer on the code. Suddenly Mr. Roosevelt turned to one and asked what he earned. The reply was "tlO a day." The President said this seemed like a pretty good wage. But." the worker replied, "last year I made less than $700." In his last radio speech to the Nation, the President referred to the importance of good annual salaries aa nnrveni to dailv wage rates. In ex tending the automobile code, he went more deeply into the question, express ing himself in identical letters to Wil liam Green, president of the American Federation of Labor, and Alvin Ma· cauley, president of the Automobile Manufacturers' Association. Roosevelt Not Satisfied. "I have no hesitation in telling you," Mr. Roosevelt said, "that there are a number of matters connected with this code with which I have never been fully satisfied. I believe that a number of them need to be cleared up and a number of other matters need Immediate and intensive study. "As you will recall, I talked with several of the manufacturers last Spring in regard to the objective of so arranging automobile work that the employes could have reasonable j assurance of employment through a greater part of the year than they now enjoy. For example, it is not very useful to pay a man tlO a day if he is only employed 65 days in the year.

OOUMERGUE SAVES CABINET BY TRUCE Herriot and Other Radical Socialists Refuse to Approve Plan. Br the Associated Pre». PARIS, November 3.—Premier Gas ton Doumergue today saved his "political true* cabinet" but there was an armed truce with two factions.

Consequently they remain free to vote in Parliament against their own cabinet's plan.

Br the Associated Press. CHICAGO. November 3.—Shouting "No, sir! No, sir! No. sir!" in a flare of anger. Samuel Insult denied thai he kepi Ins biggest company afloat only by juggling securities between the other concerns of his system, as far back as 1928. Tne deposed utility executive on the stand (or tlx third day. to defend himself against mail fraud charges, was confronted with the income lax return* of Middle West Utilities Co.. his giant holding concern and master key to his system. He was excused from crots exami nation after defending his financing practises for Uiree and a half hours as the high point of his trial. As the trial opened Inaull denied that the Corporation Securities Co. issued its first dividend as bait" for Investors, scolding Salter for "ques tions with inferences." Insull professed not to be able to recall much about the dividend in question, issued just before the Cor poration Securities Co. put its common slock out in a Nation-wide sales cam pa ικ η in 19:10 The prosecutor was armed with a half dozen letters and telegrams on the subject. In one of which H. L. Stuart. Insull's investment banker, said the dividend was ill advised in view of the fact that the corporation had taken huge losses on the securities it held. Was in Europe. These failed to refresh Insull's re collection. He said at first that he approved the dividend, although re calling that he was iu Europe at the time. Salter read an exchange of tele grams and cables and then asked: "Isn't it a fact that the reason you put the common stock on a dividend basis in the Spring of 1930 was simply to make it look more attractive?" Insull began to answer, stopped, and then said: "If I give a direct answer I'll have ι to say no. I don't know. I wasn't here." Salter persisted. "Isn't that the reason?" he asked quietly. Insull turned to the jury. "No, gentlemen." he declared vigor ously. "at that time there wasn't any trouble selling a million and a quarter shares." That was the size of the issue put on the market in April, 1930. "It had nothing to do with your desire to sell the stock?" Insull shook a finger at Salter. "That was a question with an in ference." · "I only want you to tell the truth," Salter said. "We'll get along famously." Insull responded, "if that's all you want." Refuses te Identify. Salter, with letters and memos from the flies of the 40-odd Insull concerns involved in the transactions under tire, could not get Insull to identify them.

NEW YORK November 3 —The Em pire Slate, a battleground in the past which lias often seen Republican vic tories, is safely Democratic this year. This Is partly due to devastating \ quarrels among the Republicans. A ; year ago the Republicans in New York. I making common cause with disgusted! Democrats and independents, elected their "Fusion" candidate for mayor, Fiorello La Guardia. Immediately there arose in the breast of the G. O. P. a hope that something might be done in the Slate elections this year. But a long series of rows, resulting finally in the ousting of W. Kingsland Macv from the Stale chairmanship, made the Republican hopeless. Aided By Kooaevelt Position. The Democrats will re-elect Gov. Lehman beyond the shadow of a doubt unless the mast astute Repub lican politicians are themselves fooled. Then, too, President Roosevelt s I action yesterday in abandoning hu I "hands off" policy to appeal for Leh- ' man s election u expected to aid the ■ Governor considerably. The Republicans also had conceded victory for Senator Royal S. Copeland ' and the result is not expected to be ' affected by Mr. Roosevelt's omission ! of the Senaux s name in indorsing Lehman. The Democrats likewise are ex- j peeled to retain their advantage in llie House delegation. The make-up of » that delegation today is 2» Democrat.· ; to 18 Republicans.

The Republicans, oil me other Hand **ν they «ill retain their present 16 seals and rain one or two now held by the Democrats. I The prospective change in the House delegation, if it materializes, will ! not be Impressive. Of great importance to the Repub- j licans in this State is the control of ; the Slate Assembly and of the Stale Senate. At present the Republicans have a fair majority in the Assembly and the Democrats hold the Senate by a single vote. Both sides are ; working hard to control these legis lative bodies and both claim victories, j If the Republicans can regain con- ! trol of the Senate, though only by ! a single vote, and can retain then majority in the House, they will feel i they have accomplished quite a lot ! If in addition, thev can make a net ' gain in their representation in the House delegation which will go to j Washington next January, and if they ι can keep Lehman's plurality in the j gubernatorial election down to 300 - ; 000 or less, their cup of joy will be ι quite full.

November 3 — President Roosevelt upon Ills arrival home today hastened to correct any impression that he would not support Senator Copeland. Democrat, for re election in Tuesday's balloting. Upon reading interpretations in the morning newspapers oi his declara tion yesterday for Gov. Lehman and jf remarks in his press conference at the White House. Mr. Roosfvelt a.sked his secretary, Marvin H Mclntyre, to make It clear he was voting for Sena tor Copeland. Voting for Copeland. "In making a statement yesterday for Gov. Lehman." said Mclntyre, "the President intended to leave no in ference that he was not voting for Senator Copeland. He U voting for Senator Copeland. The President confined his statement yesterday to Oov. Lehman, an intimate friend Ob viously he could not name all candi dates on the ticket simply because of numbers." While making clear the presiden tial attitude toward Senator Cope land. no attempt was made to dis guise Mr Roosevelt's statement In yesterday's press conference that it would be amazing to know how many times he had voted for individual Republicans. In this declaration is seen another signal by the President to voters to disregard party lines for the New Deal, although no White House In terpretation was placed upon Mr. Roosevelt's words. Upon reading his statement yester day calling for the election of Gov. Lehman, attention was called that no mention was made of Senator Copeland. Mr. Roosevelt replied that it was a statement for Gov. Lehman. Then, asked if he would vote the straight Democratic ticket, he smiled and stated it would be amazing to know how many times he had voted lor individual Republicans. Nul Clear to Reporter·. Reporters are still guessing whether this meant he had voted very few ur very many times lor individual Republican*. But Mr. Roosevelt did emphasise to day that he did not intend any inter· pretation against Senator Copeland. There is no particular close associa tion. however, between the President and Senator Copeland and this natu rally led to the speculation. Spending the day at home, the President received at lunch Frank Gannett, New York State publisher. Home folks welcomed the President both at Highland and here He went directly to the house, where his mother waited with a steaming breakfast. He planned no other participation in the campaign and will remain at home, going to the polls Tuesday. Heniv Morgenthau. jr..

STAND AROL'SES GOSSIP. Politicians Kind Difficulty Solving President's Remarks. HI J KtSStl.t. YOtNG President Roosevelt gave political circles something to mull over through his public indorsement yesterday of the candidacy of his friend. Herbert Lehman, for re-election as Governor of New York. and his omitting at the time any mention of Senator Copeland or other Democratic candi dates in New York. Mr. Roosevelt made it very clear yesterday that omission of Copeland's name was not an oversight. Asked about it. the President replied that he was discussing only his old friend Lehman. This answer was viewed by some as evasive. One of the newspaper group asked jocularly if the President did not always vote the straight Democratic ticket. With a twinkle in his eye the President retorted to the effect that his listeners would be amazed to know how many times in the past lie voted for individual Republicans. Even then, however, those familiar with the President's mind doubted very much that he intended to give the idea he would vote against Sen ator Copeland. They were of the opinion that Mr. Roosevelt was in dulging in irony when he mentioned that lie had voted for individual Re publicans in tiie past. Political Quarters Stirred. The fact that the White House last night made no attempt to coun teract the impression the President had intended to snub Senator Cope land naturally gave rise today to all sorw of gossip in political quarters. There is no secret that Senator Cope land had not been close to the ad ministration or popular in New Deal Littles. There are those who believe the President, and Postmaster Gen eral Parley, too would have preferred fonie one else as the Democratic candidate for the Senate, and that his renomination was assented to by the President and his New York political following principally because Copeland has clearly demonstrated (Continued on Page 3, Column 1.)
