SOVIET PAIR S I
FACINGICV ILF
Former Communist Leaders
Reported Sentenced to
Arctic isie.
By the Associated Press.
LONDON. December 31.—'The Daily
Express in a dispatch from Warsaw
today says Gregory ZinoviefT and Leon
Kameneff, once powerful in Commu
nist circles, with their families are
en route to a "living death" in Russia's j
Arctic "Devil's Island.”
The exiles, the dispatch says, were |
dispatched to Solovetski Island, in the
White Sea, for participating in a re-1
cent plot against the government.
•'Both were shackled before being
placed in cold freight cars for the
fortnight's trip.” the account says,
“and the only concession made Zino
YieU was a large bundle of books.
Stalen Reported at “Trial.”
"Only Josepii Stalin, head of the
Communist party, and the commissar
of the interior were present at a se
cret session when sentence' was pro
nounced without a formal trial.
"Both Zinovieff and Kameneff ap
peared happy and astonished to have
been sentenced to anything less than
death, and the former smiled as he
walked along the station platform.
Under the plot, it was alleged. Zinovieff
was to have supplanted Stalin, marked
for death.”
The dispatch says the exile is a vir
tual death sentence, because the tern- |
perature seldom rises above zero, and, i
in addition, Zinovieff is in an ad
vanced stage of tuberculosis.
Twelve officers of the Odessa Red
army, the dispatch asserted, hive been
arrested.
400 Suicides Reported.
A Warsaw dispatch says passengers
from Moscow and Leningrad reported
more than 400 suicides in Russia with
in the last two weeks during the in
vestigation of the assassination of
Sergei Kirofl, Leningrad Communist
leader.
Berlin newspapers state diplomats in
Moscow will demand that the Soviet
name the unidentified foreign consul
In Leningrad it accuses of supporting
the plot.
Fourteen men were put to death |
Saturday for Kiroffs murder, bringing
to 117 the number executed thus far. j

EIGHT GO ON TRIAL
IN IMSSMINGS
Night Sessions Expected to
Expedite Kansas City
Massacre Case.
By the Associated Preu.
• KANSAS CITY, December 31,—Be
fore a 6-foot Federal Judge noted for
the rapidity of his court proceedings,
four men and four women were called
to trial today on charges of conspiracy
In the Kansas City Union Station
slayings.
It was the first time any one has
been brought to bar In connection with
l the mass slaying of June 17, 1933, In
which four officers and their prisoner
Jell before a burst of machine gun nre.
Night sessions—Judge Merrill E.
Otis himself sleeps but about four
hours in 24—were expected to be or
I dered to expedite the trial of the
eight, accused of arranging for the
i delivery of Frank Nash, an escaped j
convict, who wu being returned to the
Federal Penitentiary at Leavenworth.
A panel of 30 juror* was summoned
to provide £he 12 men who will decide
whether Mrs. Frances Nash, Mrs.
Vivian Mathis, Louis Stacci, Frank B.
Mulloy, Richard T. Gallatas. his wife
Elizabeth: Herbert Allen Farmer and
his wire Esther were guilty of a con
spiracy to rescue Nash.
The actual “trigger men," the Gov
ernment alleges, were Charles “Pretty
Boy’* Floyd, Verne Miller and Adam
Richetti. Floyd and Miller are dead
and Richetti 15 In jail here awaiting
trial for murder.
Nash, captured at Hot Springs. Ark.,
was brought here by train and -was
being placed in a motor car when the
three gunmen appeared and ordered
escorting officers to raise their hands.

McAlester, Okla.; Raymond Caflrey, a
Federal agent, and two city detec
tives, Frank Hermanson and William
Grooms, were killed. R. E. Vetterll

MORE NAVAL OFFICERS
TO GET POSTS IN D. C
Navy Expected to Limit Tours ol
Duty in Washington to
Three for Each.
There’ll be aome new faces around
the Navy Department shortly, Instead
of those of naval officers that have
shown up periodically for duty lr
Washington.
The Bureau of Navigation, Navj
Department. It was learned today, la
preparing to promulgate orders di
recting that an officer shall have but
three tours of duty In Washington
These are usually for two years each
but may vary a bit, depending upor
the needs of the service.
The contention has been made thal
particular classes of the Naval Acad
emy have been coming back to Wash
ington, after each tour of sea duty
without giving others an opportunity
to serve here. This Is declared tc
be especially true in the detail office,
which sends officers on various as
signments. Secretary Swanson is in
terested in seeing that as many of
ficers as desire to come to the Na
tional Capital for duty get their turn
here, If not incompatible with the
good of the service.
Braves Icy Wind in Shorts.
NEW YORK, (^.—‘‘Nudist camps
are stupid and Idiotic." cried the bar
rel-chested Anthony Sclafant. "Their
contention Is that we came into the
world without anything on. But in
those days we didn’t know any bet
ter.'* Sclafant knows better. He wore
shorts—and only shorts—for his
jaunt past New York’s shivering
churchgoers in yesterday’s subfreez
ing wind.

An army instructor is giving lessons
on Italy’s defenses in' public schools

EVILS OF RENO DIVORCES
ASSAILED BY ATTORNEY
Mexican and Reno divorces are ab
solutely void In the District of Colum
and are creating "a horrible after
ith of bigamy, lllegltimary of chll
en and confusion of property rights
which will clutter up the courts for
years to come,” Jean M. Boardman,
local atttomey, said in a radio broad
' cast last night from Station WJ8V,
| under the auspices of the Bar Asso
| elation of the District of Columbia.
Many District residents have ob
tained utterly worthless divorce de
crees in Reno and Mexico, Boardman
said, because the District “is one of
the hardest places in the entire civil-1
ized world in which to obtain a
divorce.” The local Bar Association,
he said, has indorsed unanimously a
proposed bill to liberalize the prezent
District divorce law, which admits
adultery as the only ground for
divorce.
