London, Oct. 25.—(AP)—Two thou
sand jobless "“hunger marchers"
cloced in upon Ix>ndon today to pre
sent demands for abolition of the
"means test." which obliges every re
cipient of the dole to prove that he
has no other means of support.
It has been hard going through in
cessant rains along muddy roads from
Scotland, Wales and many parts of
England, but early this morning the
yun broke through briefly, only to
hide behind clouds which threatened
another downpour.
Tonight the marchers will camp at
.«uch nearby places as Croydon and
St. Albans, converging tomorrow aft
ernoon at Hyde Park, where there will
be a great demonstration of welcome
by the London unemployed.
Then on Sunday afternoon the Job
less will gather In Trafalgar Square,
where there will be speeches. Many
in the ranks are wearing new red"
rosettes, and the charge is openly
made in several London newspapers
that the march was fostered by funds
from Moscow.
The “army” was represented before
the London County Council yesterday
by a deputation which demanded
among other things accommodations
for the men when they arrive. “ j

Raleigh. Oct. 25.—Those here who
arc familiar with both the new high

win clevoted much of his time in ar

State highway law. with one board of
education that should have the same
powers as the State Highway Com

But Mr. Erwin is either arguing for
something which none of the other
county superintendents and school po
