Oxford Students Use Rats

New York Hrrald Bureau. I
I/ondon, March 13. (
AN exciting game of hockey
golf, with rats serving the
purpose of balls, was staged
in Cornmarket street, Oxford, by
a group of Oxford undergraduates
to-day. The students, armed with
hookey sticks and golf clubs,
formed a circle in the busy streets,
freed from sacks about 150 rats
and proceeded to kill them, while
the long drives and wild shouts
sent pedestrians scurrying for
shelter. The affair arose from a
statement in a local newspaper
that things were not so lively In
Oxford as some years In the past,
when rat hunting in the streets
was the favorite frolic of the stu
^ J
fore. The line, however, had been re
paired on both occasions.
One commando. 500 strong, which had
succeeded in blowing up part of the
railway at Driefonteln. was located and
bombed by an airplane. The airplane
dropped rations to a number of de
tached police officers who were besieged
by the strikers.
It has been ascertained that a few
officials who were guarding the Brak
pan mines were clubbed to- death after
having surrendered when their ammu
nition ran out.
A volunteer power station has been
successful In maintaining the lighting of
the city. It is doubtful if Joliannesburg
ever experienced such a Sunday as yes

This Spring.
Moscow, March 18 (Associated Pr??*).
?T.?eon Trotzky, addressing the Mos

the Genoa conference, presented docu
mentary, newspaper and circumstantial
evidence designed to show threatening
Interventionist and counter revolutionary
activities against Russia this spring.
Trotsky advised preparations of the Red
Trotzky declared during his address
that the followers of Gen. Wrangel were

From the White Sea to Baku, declared
Trotzky, the interventionist danger

responsible for this." he declared, "but

Suggestion Heard to Refer
Plan to League of Nations.
Paris, March 18 (Associated Press).?
The Allied Governments are worried by
the tone of the communications from
Moscow with regard to the Genoa con
ference and views have been exchanged
as to the conditions under which the
conference is likely to open If the Rus
sian Soviet representatives go there in
the spirit Indicated by the recent decla
rations of Soviet leaders. French diplo
mats believe the Russian representatives
will go with a determination to talk
about anything they desire to, or not
take any part at all
One of the chief purposes of the con
ference has been the restoration of Rus
sia. and in view of the Soviet attitude
the suggestion that the whole enterprise
contemplated In the call for the Genoa
gathering be referred to the League of
Nations Is being more and more fre
quently met with here.

Most chauffeurs' caps are ti&ht

head and too easily blown off <
while driving.
The Saks' "Flexo" cap eliminates all
these troubles. A special sweat-band
prevents it from leaving the head in
the most severe storm, and at all times
acts as a cushion to prevent binding
and discomfort.
