Week-End at Rapidan
Washington. May 14.—(AP)—A little
trimming around the edges rather
than any major surgery is the eco
nomic offering Interior departments
officials plan to lay before President
Hoover in the coming week-end con
ference at his Rapidan camp.
They do not see In their domain
anything to compare with the aban
donment of 20 to 30 army posts or
dered for the war department Major
cuts, they fear, are impossible unless
there is a change In general policy
as to public works.
The Indian office, which receives
one of the biggest shares of the total
appropriation, has Inaugurated a pol
icy which hinges on employment of
high-calibre personnel at attractive
salaries.
It received for the fiscal year 1932
a net appropriation of about $25,000,-
000. The staff reorganization and its
construction program will require
that figure as a minimum for next
year. If a material cut were made
officials fear their program would be
wrecked.
There unquestionably will be a
shrinkage in work of the reclamation
bureau. Tobogganing oil prices and
other causes are expected to cut the
reclamation fund on which it oper
ates principally from $11,000,000 to
about $6,000,000. However, as a re
volving fund, this has Utle bearing
on the general treasury condition.
Building Hoover Dam will take an
other $15,000,000. as in this year, and
the bureau hopes to get $5,000,000 to
start the All-American canal.
The education office is conducting
surveys which ft fears would be dis

CAIRO DISORDERS
Police Use Machine Guns to
Quell Egyptian Mobs Dur
ing Striker Clash
Cairo, Egypt, May 14.—<AP)—Serious
rioting developed in the Cairo rail
way shops here Thursday when
striking workmen clashed with police.
Some reports placed the number of
killed as high as 30 with many more
wounded. Police were said to have
used machine guns to quell the mobs.
The strikers, numbering between
4,000 and 5,000 became disorderly
Wednesday night and police sur
rounded the workshops but were kept
at a distance by streams from fire
hose.
Three English police constables
were reported killed. Train service
has been disorganized.
Disorders broke out later in the
day near the center of the town,
where mobs attacked and burned
trolley cars and busses. In other
sections workmen pulled down lamp
posts and threw them acrow the
streets to block traffic.
The government reported the situ

were considering sending troops to
the railroad workshops.

WEN DIPLOMATS
May Increase Police Guards for
Foreign Statesman Fol
lowing Attack
Washington, May 14. — UP) —The
state department sought Thursday to
determine if further police protection
should be given foreign diplomats in
Washington.
This study followed an attack Wed
nesday by liquor thieves on Dr. Carlos
Leiva, charge D'affaires of the lega
tion of El Salvador.
Secretary Stimson, in a letter to the
diplomat, said police would make
every effort to apprehend the mar
auders. He announced the investiga
tion of protection but said he would
not go so far as to predict that it
would result in the posting of police
outside all foreign missions.
Leiva, returning to the legation
early Wednesday, was ordered by an
armed man he met at the door to
raise his hands. Instead, he grappled
with the man as one shot was fired.
Hie charge D’Affaires was struck
several times with a flashlight, suf
fering minor scalp and face lacera

In French Mix-up |

: ■ ...... ;
Though Paul Doumer, above, was
elected the 13th president of France
Wednesday, Aristide Briand, below,
defeated candidate, was more in the
public eye of France. Frenchmen were
speculating on whether Briand would
be dropped as foreign minister. The
veteran minister left Thursday for
Geneva to attend the meeting of the
committee of the confederation of
Europe.
FUTURE OF BRIAND,
BEATEN CANDIDATE,
REMAINS PROBLEM
Foreign Minister of France De
parts for Geneva for Con
federation Meeting
Paris, May 14.—(/P) —Aristide Bri
and, veteran of the foreign office, in
defeat Thursday was more in the
French eye than Paul Doumer, suc
cessful candidate for president.
Briand’s associates thought his
friends had repudiated him and the
policies of international conciliation
which he fathered.
Thursday there was widespread ex
pectation that he would offer his
resignation as foreign minister, a post
which he has held almost without in
terruption for seven years, and would
retire into the comparative obscurity
which attended his predecessors in
similar defeat, Georges Clemenoeau
and Paul Palnleve.
His departure Thursday for Geneva,
it was believed, would be only to pre
side at the inaugural meeting of the
committee on his pet confederation
of Europe, whereafter he would re
sign fils place probably to Premier
Laval, expected to follow him in the
foreign office.
Premier Laval’s attitude was that
the presidential vote in no way af
fected French foreign policy, which
has been frequently ratified by par
liament.
It was believed he would request
Briand to remain in the government
at least until June 13, when accord
ing to custom the cabinet of an out
going president presents its resigna
tion to the incoming official.
Briand Thursday offered his resig
nation as foreign minister, a post he
has held for seven years, but Premier
Laval and other colleagues persuaded
him to remain at least until his im
mediate tasks at Geneva are com
pleted. _
When Briand left the Quai D'Orsay,
where the cabinet met, he confirmed
the report of his resignation, adding,
“They refused to accept it,” but in
dicating that the resignation still
stands.

Forcing three employes and a cus

New York, May 14.— UP)— Busts of
four illustrious emericans were un

and a distinguished company cele
brated their memory in prose and
poetry.
The statues, placed with 65 others
previously unveiled at New York uni
versity, are likenesses of:
James Monroe, fifth president,
sponsor of the Monroe doctrine.
Matthew Fontaine Maury, ocean
ographer, called the “Pathfinder of
the seas.” His researches in mapping
ocean currents and winds saved mil
lions on dollars to shippers by re
ducing sailing time.
James Abbott McNeil whistler,
painter, etcher, watercolorist and sa
tirist.
Walt Whitman, called the “poet of
democracy.”
President Hoover sent a letter
praising the enduring quality of the
work of the four. He said the Mon
roe doctrine “has formed the firm
foundation upon which had steadily
grown an ever-increasing mutual re
spect and good will between our own
country and those advancing nations
to the south of us.”
Henry Morgenthau said it was due
largely to the doctrine that the
Americas are practically a happy

British Explorer Was Buried in

CHIMNEY WAS VENTILATOR
Rescuers Found Huge Snow
drift, Which Turned Out to
Be Scientist's Haven
(Copyright, 1931, By The Associated
Press.)
Angmagsallk. Greenland, May 14
(AP) —A story of being buried two
months beneath ice and snow in an
igloo was told here Thursday by Aug
ustine Courtauld.
The British scientist, rescued last
week by fellow-members of the Brit
ish arctic air route expedition, had
only a chimney way to provide air
in his place of refuge on the Green
land ice cap.
Courtauld, whom Captain Albin
Ahrenberg. Swedish aviator, brought
here with H. G. Watkins, chief of the
rescue party, from their inland base,
was unshaved and almost unrecog
nizeable beneath a long growth of
beard, and appeared somewhat the
worse for a long enforced diet of seal
meat.
Watkins said his rescue party toil
ed for many weeks over the ice crags
toward where at the winter’s begin
ning they left Courtauld to observe
weather conditions. They frequently
lost the trail and were delayed for
days when the skies clouded and they
could not ascertain their position.
In searching a wide ice field they
found an enormous drift, covered with
a thick layer of ice which they at
once concluded must have been
Courtauld’s igloo. At the top of the
snowmound, which rose above the
surrounding acres of frozen snow the
weary party found a small hole which
was the only opening in the sur
rounding desert and which they con
cluded must be the igloo's chimney.
They shouted down into it, hoping
their comrade was safe below, and
heard in reply an unexcited: “Hello.
All right.”
They went to work with spades and
within 15 minutes had reached Court
auld. •
Courtauld said that two months be

Mansfield, Ohio, May 14.—C/P>—Ap
proximately 150 pickets were posted in
front of the Mansfield plant of the
Empire Steel corportation Thursday
as the answer of the 1,600 striking
employes to an offer of peace by the
company.
The employes Wednesday night re
jected the management’s proposition
to return to work with a recent 5 per
cent wage cut rescinded, but with a
previous cut of 10 per cent still in
effect. Hundreds immediately began
signing applications for membership
in the Amalgamated Association of
Iron, Sheet and Tin Workers ot North
America. The plant heretofore has
been on an open shop basis.
The decision to continue the strike,
which began Tuesday, foliowed the
announcement of Carl W. Henkel,
president of the corporation, that the
mills face certain destruction and a
permanent shutdown if the workers
do not return to their jobs.
The employes contend that the
present wages, even disregarding the
rescinded 5 per cent cut, are 30 per
cent under those paid in other steel
plants which use union labor. Union
ization of the workers was started by
Edward W. Miller, Pittsburgh, a vice

LABOR FEDERATION
URGES WORKMENTO
OPPOSE WAGE CUTS
A. F. of L. Seeks to Forestall
'Continuous, Permanent
Unemployment'
Washington, May 14.— (APi —Seeking
to forestall what it said would mean
“continuous, permanent unemploy
ment,” the American federation of
labor’s executive council is asking
workers to resist wage reduction “to
the fullest extent.”
In a study of joblessness, the coun
cil announced, it found "an attempt
which apparently certain banking in
terests and certain employers are
making to bring about a general re
duction in wages.”
"As usual,” said the organization's
formal statement, "labor must be de
pended upon to save the situation and
prevent the further imposition of in
justice. For this reason the execu
tive council calls upon labor, organ
ized and unorganized, to resist wage
reductions.
"The executive council proposes to
appeal to the workers to stand firmly
in opposition to wage reductions. The
council will urge working men and
women, both organized and unorgan
ized to resist to the fullest extent any
and all attempts to reduce wages and
lower American living standards.
• • • The council is inspired by a
firm conviction that it is only a step
from reductibns in wages to continu
ous permanent unemployment.”
A wage cutting policy, the council
held, "constitutes a public violation
of the understanding reached" in a
conference of industrial and labor
leaders with President Hoover. After
such a conference in 1929 it was an
nounced that the industrialists had
pledged themselves not to initiate
any movement for wage reduction. It
was said recently at the white house
that the president was pleased that
pay levels had been maintained dur
ing the depression.
The labor council asserted that an
apparent move toward lower wages
“Is Indefensible both from an ethical
and economic viewpoint.
“There are strong indications that
we are facing a third winter of dis
tressing unemployment,” the council
forecast, adding that despite a de
creasing earning power “a number of
employers are attempting to further
reduce the purchasing power . . .
through the imposition of wage re
ductions.”

Madrid, May 14.— (JP}— A Catholic
Spain went to church after the riots
of the last four days in which Cath
olic buildings in many of the prov

Thursday was the feast of the as
cension, one of the most important
days in the Catholic calendar and a
national holiday in Spain. The banks
were closed, business and industry
were suspended, and the churches
were thronged.
Cardinal Segura, primate of Spain,
had fled to Prance on the way to
Rome and charred ruins of churches
and convents were guarded by sol

apparently had ended.
Martial law continued in most of
