Pope to Seek Lake Retreat To Preserve His Strength Advancing Age Causes Pins' Escape From Summer Heat VATICAN CITY, June 29 Ufl— The infirmities of his advanced age combined with the approefch of Rome's humid summer heat will send Pope Pius off to his summer retreat at Castel Gandolfo Tuesday, many weeks earlier than usual. This year, for the first time, the holy father has acceded to the counsel of intimates who heretofore have urged him in vain to make change in time to escape completely the summer temperature. Preserve Health Prelates said his acquiesence now is further evidence of the pontiff's realization the time has corne when he must take every precaution to conserve his strength. The pope passed his seventy-ninth birthday May 31. Three years ago members of the papal household urged his holiness to revive the practice.of his predecessors before 1870 by removing his court to the hills outside Rome for the summer. The pope refused, asserting, since he had proclaimed a holy year, all who visited Vatican City to see him had a right to find him there. He did make two inspection trips to Castel Gandolfo in 1933, the first excursions outside metropolitan Rome he had taken since he was crowned. Two years ago, Pope Pius reluctantly agreed to spend a part of the summer in the country, but he postponed his departure until August 1. James Stares At Serpent in Murder Trial Snake, Which State Says Barber Used to Slay Wife, Brought in Court LOS ANGELES, June 29 MPJ—A rattlesnake the state charges Robert S. James, marrying barber, used in slaying . his seventh wife, Mary, struck repeatedly at its glass cage in superior court Monday while a snake expert gave matter-of-fact testimony concerning its deadliness. The defendant, stocky and red- haired, stared at the serpent and its companion, only a few feet away from him. When court recessed at noon he said to his attorney: "I'd like to look at those snakes myself." A bailiff stood beside him as he peered into the cage containing the reptiles. Their evil-looking heads thudded against the glass, splotched with the venom of their futile blows. James paled visibly. His attitude has been one of amused indifference. The snakes are those which Charles Hope, ex-sailor, testified he purchased for the defendant He saw James thrust the bared leg of his wife into a box holding one snake, he said, and later helped him carry her body and toss it into a fish pond after James drowned her in a bathtub. The state charges James murdered his seventh wife last August 4. to collect 520.ri.10 insurance. Women in the courtroom gasped and recoiled when the snakes were brought in. Lois Wright, 21-year- old niece of James, became hysterical. Comparative calm settled over the room while the snake expert, Ronald Kirby, testified. He said snakes are .able to register hits on the objects of their attacks more than three-quarters of their length away. The wound made by a rattlesnake's fangs, he testified, can be seen a day after. "In my own case, when I was bitten, I could see the puncture for three weeks afterward," he said. "The fangs are curved and if the victim jerked or the snake pulled sideways, a tear would be made taking the fangs out." Dr. A. F. Wagner, county au Baldwin Voted Confidence by British House Labor Scores Foreign Policy of Government as 'Danger to Peace* LONDON, June 29 (£>)—Prime Minister Stanley Baldwin's government was attacked as "a danger to our country and the peace and security of the world" Monday night, but it won a vote of confidence in iiouse of commons debate.

From each of the two sojourns he returned bronzed-in the sun and increased in vigor. The papal summer estate is situated in the Alban hills, 17 miles from Rome, amid a beautiful lake region. At an altitude of 1400 feet, the freshness of its air is in welcome contrast with the steaming vapors which hover over Rome's sea-leve] area during the hot months. Castel Gandolfo became'the papal summer residence after Pope Urban VIII erected a villa there in 1629. Japan, Britain Aim Blows at Naval Treaty Tokyo Spurns Sea Pact; British Want to Save Destroyers in Excess LONDON, June 29 UP) — The crumbling structure of naval limitation received two strategic blows Monday. Japan officially refused to adhere to the 1936 London .treaty, signed by Great Britain, the United States and France, and it was learned the British would shortly invoke the escalator clause of the 1930 treaty to save excess destroyers. Formal notification to Washington and Tokyo that Britain wants to invoke 'the escalator clause will be sent within a few days, diplomatic quarters said. The United States will benefit by Britain's use of the escalator, which will free all signatories to the same extent. The United States also has built over treaty limits, but her destroyers are older. Submarine restrictions of the treaty may be upset by a subsequent invocation of the clause by Japan. The British previously explained in notes to Washington and Tokyo that they want to retain destroyers because nnn-sjgr, a t O ris5 have built more than 200 submarines since 1930. WASHINGTON, June 29 (/P)_ The American government already had notified Great Britain that it is willing to accede to the British proposal for an increase in the destroyer strength of navies providing London assumes responsibility for the increase. Formal notice that Britain must assume this responsibility was dispatched to the British government early this month. While neither government has published the text of this correspondence, the United States is understood to have taken the position that the only way for a government to so increase its naval power is for that country to invoke the escalator clause of the 1930 London naval treaty. topsy surgeon, has testified that a wound found on Mrs. James' leg was i- a "puncture with a slight tear."

The de.bate was called to discuss declarations made by cabinet ministers outside parliament which the labor faction contended were in conflict with Britain's declared policies, •Little Boy Blue' Baldwin was absent and Clement R. Attlee, labor leader, sarcastically referred to him as "Little Boy Blue who is sound asleep," Herbert Morrison, closing the case for the laborites, charged: "It is not a team, it is an aggre gation of conflicting units. It L a danger to our country and the peace and security of the world. "The truth is, the government ha. got into a state of utter irresponsibility in the conduct of foreign affairs." A loud cheer from opposition members went up when Morrison declared ministers like Duff Cooper "ought to be kept under control; it is bad for the country and bad for the peace of the world." Duff Cooper did not participate in the debate, but he heard Sir John Simon, home secretary, and Winston Churchill, conservative, come to his defense after Morrison joined other laborites in charging he had promised an unrestricted alliance with France in case of war, "presupposing it will be against Germany." Alliance Denied Both Simon and Churchill denied :he war minister advocated a military alliance in his speech to a French audience in Paris, June 26. Sir John added: "I ought to make it quite clear :here is no closing of the door on :he possibility of agreement with peaceful Germany." Attlee led the labor attack on the government and particularly against :he absence of Baldwin. . "It's time the prime minister came o this house and told us plainly what the government policy is," he said. "Thereafter members of the :overnment should control their :ongues."

"Meanwhile," added Cohalan, a former state supreme court justice, "the Roosevelt-Farley group had better give up their George III attitude and let the Democrats of New York select their own candidates for office in the state of New York.

Dill and his wife, the former senator testified in his divorce trial against her Monday. It was an outburst at the Chicago Democratic convention in 1932, ivhen Franklin D.

When they first were married, he added, he got the impression she was an admirer of Franklin D. Roosevelt. "She didn't like the Theodore Roosevelt family — their estate and the estate of Mrs. Dill's family were adjoining," he asserted. Speech Invited "She thought Franklin D. Roosevelt was all right until some time before the convention, when she invited him to make a speech over a national radio hookup she was arranging for the Peace league. "I had advised her—or suggested —she not embarrass him-by asking him to make the speech, but she did. He declined with some polite excuse and after that she had no use for him."
