Justice Jennings Bailey stated consideration of the packer’s con tention that changing conditions in the last ten years have made modifi cation necessary after denying the motion of the American National Livestock association and the Nation al wool growers to intervene. They were permitted to file briefs in sup port of the meat packers. Prank J. Hogan, counsel for the packers, argued the rise of chain store groups and changes in distri bution of food products had elimin ated all possibility of food monopoly by the packers. He contended it was in the public interest to allow the meat packers to sell meat at retail. Hogan said profits of the packers had been reduced to such a point by 4 limitations imposed upon them that their business stability might be en dangered unless the modifications were allowed. Government counsel replied condi tions which made it necessary to proceed against the packers under the anti-trust laws in 1920 still prevailed. After the government brought Its suit la 1930, five of the largest pack ing groups agreed to confine them selves to meat packing and closely related lines. Litigation which grew out of this decree went to the su preme court, which upheld the agree ment.. The packers then brought a pro ceeding) for modification in the Dis « trlct of Columbia supreme court.

FRENCH SCIENTIST OBTAINS POWERJROM OCEAN 1 WATER Operates Electric Light With Efcfetridity Generated by New Contrivance Matanzas, Cuba, Oct. 7.—Pro fessor Georges Claude, French scien tist and engineer, put nature to work here last night and kept forty 500- watt electric lamps burning tor more than a half hour. The feat culminated five yean of constant and unremitting effort and expenditure of about $2,000,000 of bis own money to finance a scheme util izing thermal differences in surface water from the gulf stream and water from 1,800 feet below the surface tj generate steam, run a turbine, drive a dynamo and generate the electric ity to light the lamps. A gathering of engineers and scien tific men saw the demonstration staged by Dr. Claude In his labora tory. He received with calm a chorus of congratulations on his achieve- ment, many of them from those who In the last few years have declared his scheme impracticable. 8om« said afterwards the experiment conceiv- ably would revolutionise the entire field of Industrial power methods. Dr. Claude first pumped warm water from the surface of Ma&anzas bay. and then, through a mile-long tube tank, MOO feet below the surface of the sea, from the depths. The warm surface water was submitted to a vacuum and became steam, finally of sufficient power to turn the tur bine. Prom the turbine the steam was sent into a tank where the cold water condensed it, creating a new vacuum in which new steam could be gen erated as soon aa the first vacuum was exhausted, the alternate process to be kept up Indefinitely. As the turbine gathered speed* and finally attained several thousand revolutions a minute it turned a dy namo and the electric lights began to glimmer and then burn brightly. The experiment was kept up long enough to convince even the most skeptical of the suecern of the gen erative methods. The only energy extraneous to the process Itself used by Dr. Claude was In keeping the pumps which brought him warm and cold sea water going. Skeptics have expressed doubt that he will be able to drive the pumps with, the power he generates and still have c- -igh left over tor any prac tical p j - He saki he would work for some time longer to increase the efficiency of Ids tantrlvanee before going to Europe for a short while. Returning he will construct a larger plant some where on the coast of Cuba.

AMERICAN LEGION HAS 70,000 IN IN CONVENTION PARADE March Through Strests Whara Cannon of Revolutionary War Once Roared Boston, Oct. 7.— (JP) —Seventy thou sand marching men, who trod the muddy roads of war a dozen years ago, marched in gay parade today through streets where once the can non of another war roared. Perhaps to the “boys" of the Amer ican Legion, as they swung along to day, there was little thought for the boys of ’76. But, about them, through the streets of Boston, there was much to remind them of the men who lired the first shots for the liberty for which they fought nearly a century and a half later. Past old Boston common, which echoed to the impassioned cries of revolutionary orators, over Beacon Hill and down the hill beside the weather-stained walls of Kings chapel, where the soldiers of Great Britain worshiped; they marched to day, surrounded by the ghosts of the past. They swung beneath a victory arch that turned their faces toward Fan euH Hall, “cradle of liberty”; Ihfi trod the spot where British rifles cracked in the “Boston massacre." The rampant unicorns of the old state house, from whose balcony the declaration of independence was read to the populace, gased down up on them as they passed. In unbroken array, eight abreast, the men of the Legion marched in what their officers said was the greatest parade of World war veter ans—a greater array than gathered in one marching unit even during war time days. From 10 o’clock, when the first units got under way, there was no let up through the day and darkness was expected to fall as the last rank reached the end. Ftrom Alaska To Panama They were there from Alaska to Panama, from Maine to the Philip pines, a scattering few from the more distant points, a regiment or more from nearby states. At 9 o’clock they began to form and the first to start had reached the end of the five mile route, before many of the delegations had gathered at their starting points. At their head, as grand marshal, was Paul V. McNutt of Indiana, past national commander; Major General Clarence R. Edwards of Massachu setts, war-time commander of the 26th “Yankee" division from New England, honorary grand marshal; and William H. Griffin of Massachu setts, past department commander, as chief of staff, and their aides. Be hind them, first of nearly 400 bands and bugle and drum corps, marched the champion legion band of electric post 22S of Milwaukee, Wis. Through Beacon street they climbed beneath festooned arches up the slope of Beacon hill and past the state house, where the first of four reviewing stands stood. Here were gathered state officers. At the city hall was another reviewing stand for city officials. But it was the third stand on Tre mont street that brought a quickened step and the snappy “eyes right" of every veteran. Tor here stood the man who led them in France, Gen eral Pershing. In the stand with him were Nation al Commander O. L. Bodenhamer, General Henri Gouraud, bearded and crippled nrench leader, Major Gener al Sir Wiliam Hickle of England, Secretary of War Patrick Hurley and Secretary of the Navy Charles Ftancis Adams and a group of other distin guished guests. As for the Legionnaires themselves —though their step was brisk and their heads erect, the mark of pass ing years wae evident in graying hair and bulging waistcoats. As they passed the Tremont street reviewing stand, they were greeted by salutes from Commander Boden hamer and General Pershing. Farmyard Bara Near McClusky Bums Down McClusky, ‘N. D., Oct. 7.

STOCK EXCHANGE TO MAKE WAR ON BEARS Will Discipline Brokers Aiding in Raids Which Unsettle Market New York, Oct. 7.—(tf*) —The New York Stock Exchange has declared war on the “bear party” which has carried on a campaign of selling raids during the last few weeks. The declaration of war took the form of a warning that brokers risk disciplinary action for selling or as sisting in the sale of securities “for the purpose of bringing about a con dition of demoralization in which prices do not fairly reflect market values." The purpose of the move to put an end to reckless selling campaigns, Wall Street operators said, would be to discourage short selling of all kinds, although the business conduct committee of the exchange made It plain it was only concerned with “bear raiding.” As the first step lr. the campaign, tta conduct committee called several brokers before it and questioned them at length regarding recent operations. The penalty for trading operations which have the effect of demoraliz ing the market ordinarily is suspen sion of membership, although the ex change authorities have the power to order expulsion.

C.. Oct. 7.— (JP) —A warning that the constitution and American institu tions must be protected from foreign influences which would mean “de struction of the driving forces of equal opportunity,” was voiced by President Hoover, At the same time the chief execu tive, standing within view of the Kings Mountain battlefield of the Revolutionary war, asserted that any practice of business which would lead to domination of the country by selfish interests also would mean a destruction of equality of oppor tunity. “It is the first duty of those who believe in the American, system,” he said, “to maintain a knowledge of and a pride in it, not particularly be cause we need fear those foreign sys tems, but because we have need to sustain ours in purity and strength. “In the American system, through free and universal education, we train the runners, we strive to give them an equal start, our government is the umpire of its fairness.

Anarchy (Continued on page nine) POLICE STATION FLOODED BY RAIN Rescue Lodgers From Drowning as Quarters Are Inundated; Pavement Damaged City police had to get busy last night and save six lodgers and suspects from drowning in the city jail. As a result of the heavy rain, the city hall basement, where the police have their quarters, was flooded. In addition, the flood which poured down Thayer avenue undermined the ledge of alley paving along the hall and dropped it into the steam pipe ditch which is connecting the new courthouse with the central heating plant. The flood was due to the earth banked up on Thayer avenue while workmen for Frank Grambs, the con tractor, are laying the steam pipe up the city hall alley. This bank ex tended out into the middle of the avenue and diverted the water flow ing off Sixth street and down Thayer into the steps leading into the police quarters. Sewer connecticvs there are mea gre and the floor of the police office and of Police Magistrate Allen’s of fice began to fill. Patrolmen Reid and Cleveland were kept busy sweep ing out the flood to the drains. Meanwhile Contractor Grambs was vainly sought by telephone, so the police cut an opening in the banked earth to allow the street flood to pass. The water then passed Into the ditch and washed the earth out from un der the ledge of paving left along the hall when the ditch was cut! This morning workmen for the con tractor were engaged in shoveling out of the ditch the ground they had re moved last week. Police headquarters still were draining off the residue of the* flood at 9 o'clock this morning. Had the patrolmen all been out cm the street, as they sometimes are, the flood would have filled the quarters In a short time, such was the volume of water, and the men sleeping in the cells would have had a considerable bath, if not actually been placed in danger of drowning.
