Until the announcement some for

The reason given by the Reichsbank
for lis decision not to carry the con

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

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
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

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.

People's Counsel Attacks All
Proposals So Far Made
for Changes.
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
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
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

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. A. code
for the vast industry for 90 days with
out change and announcing an In
vestigation aimed at smoothing out
peaks and valleys in automobile em
ployment. The code would have ex
pired tonight.
Union labor, which some time age
sought a 30-hour week and an end
to the "merit clause." under which
employers can hire and Are without
regard to union afflliallons. had asked
a hearing on the code. 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
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. Another example: Statements
have been made that the average
earnings of automotive employes have

Denies "Juggling" to Keep

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

He was excused from crots exami

As the trial opened Inaull denied
that the Corporation Securities Co.

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

The prosecutor was armed with a
half dozen letters and telegrams on

had taken huge losses on the securities

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
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
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,
"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.

their "Fusion" candidate for mayor,

there arose in the breast of the G. O.

But a long series of rows, resulting
finally in the ousting of W. Kingsland

Of great importance to the Repub- j

confined his statement yesterday to

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

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.

last night made no attempt to coun

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
