WD MBS E Planes Launch Missiles Air Raids Along South Front NORTH ARMY ACTIVE Aviators Report Dessye Deserted and White Flags Showing Rome, April 10. Italian airplanes blasted Ethiopian towns to day, Italian soldiers pressed their wav toward Dessye, and Italians at home talked anew of the possibility of war in Europe. Not only had Premier Benito Mussolini refused to discuss peace before Easter, net only had he curtly refused to discuss charges that Italy violated the rules of war by using poison gas, tint u was learned he sent special orders to Marshal Pietro Badoglio to intensify activity on all fronts in Ethiopia. Southern Front Active It was felt here that the efforts of the league council to arrange peace were about to collapse and that the Italian-Ethiopian problem was approaching again the crisis stage, with the danger of war in the Mediterranean and Europe. Newspaper dispatches from Mogadiscio, Italian Somaliland, told of a terrific bombardment by 22 Italian planes of six Ethiopian towns in the eastern-southern re gion of Ethiopia. They rained bombs on Bullale, Sasa, Baneh, Daggan Bur, Daggah Modo, Ga-gaba and Birout, southeast of Haror.

They stomped .through. .corridors of the cnpitol, some humming the "Internationale" and emphasizing with clenched fists demands for a $(1,000,000,000 work relief appro-Diiiition and prevailing wage rates on WPA projects. Not since the "bonus army" marched through Washington streets, camped on the banks of the Anncostia river and fought with nnlire and soldiers, has the nation's cnpitol witnessed a similar situation. That was in 1932- The nearly BOO nondescript delegates, after parading unmolested about the White House, trudged down Pennsylvania avenue to the cnpitol to present demands to congress. Penniless and jobless, the unemployed besieged the offices of representatives and senators, and milled through corridors of the capilol for three hours, clamoring to be heard. Their demands for a $1,000 emergency appropriation for. food and shelter, carried to the house lloor by Rep. Gerald Bolleau, P.. Wis., forced immediate adjournment until Monday. When Rep. John Tuber, R., N. Y., blocked the resolution through demands for a quorum call and forced adjournment, Boilcau and Rep. Vito Marcantonio. New York liberal republican, rushed into the corridor for u hurried conference wilh David Lasser, leader of the convention. Without wailing for their hats or coals, Boilcau and Marcantonio dashed from Ihe building with Lasser, hailed a taxicab and went directly lo the office of Works Administrator Harry Hopkins.

' i Eden then threatened, if Mad-ariaga's report of his conference was unfavorable, to seek convocation of the league committee of 18 April 17 next day to vote new penalties against Italy. Eden and Pierre Etienne Flan-din clashed bitterly at the meet-ing of the committee of 13. - Committeemen seemed exhaust-"cd "When the? " left - the 'meeting, giving Italy a week to show that it means peace. The alternative is an oil embargo and a grave European crisis. Eden impulsively championed the Ethiopians, responding to angry British public opinion bt the Italian war. He sought to prevent any delay in negotiations which would enable the Italians to exploit their victory. Flundin favored Italy throughout, and fought Eden at all points in seeking a long adjournment.
