A left wing victory and, in particular, a surprisingly strong communist showing, were assured today by returns of yesterday's national election for members of the chamber of deputies. It was certain also that the new chamber would be almost unman-ogenble because of conflicts among the parties comprising the left wing popular front. A complete official tabulation of the 618 voting districts in France and the colonics showed 179 elected, distributed as follows: Left Communists, 9; dissident communist, 1: socialist 19; Joseph Paul-Boncour's dissident socialist union, 4; independent and republican socialists, 3: radicnl socin'-ists, 22; independent radicals, 14. Center and Right Lett ana independent republicans, 36; popular democrats. 9; union republican democratic, 42; conservatives, 5. Independent and belonging to no party. 11. More than three-fourths of the 618 seats in the chamber must be re-contested at a run-off election next Sunday in those districts where no candidate obtained a majority.

From the Headlines By Deacon Richmond "To Be Or Not To Be Capitalized" In poetry, that's written in the old established way, the line is ended with the word to the rhyme in play but, when a rhyme is written in this prosaic style, some people find that reading it is something of a trial. The scheme of using capitals for every rhyming word, was quite a welcome plan to some; to some 'twas quite absurd. Just what will please the public is a matter hard to tell: folks seldom make much mention of the things they like real well; they sometimes write about the things that really raise their ire yet, even this, is not enough to show their real desire. wow. it you read tne ijfaronjj ami line wie inyming Yi well emphasized with capitals, and don't think them ABSURD, we'd like to have you say so with a postal card or LETTER; and if. upon the other hand, you like small letters BETTER, your comment will be welcome and we'll thank you for explaining, for we'd like to write 'The Headlines' in the way most m i BS JERSEY JOBLESS MOVE ON CAPITAL , TO LOBBY RELIEF Trenton, N. J., April 27. An angry army of the 300,000 men, women and children whom the state quit feeding a week ago marched on the capital today to "lobby" for relief at a meeting of the legislature tonight. Authorities called state police from highway patrol duty to help Trenton and slate house police preserve order. William Arbridge, Workers Alliance secretary, said he expected 10,000 marchers. Several hundred men, women and children slept in rickety cars and., trucks . pnrkoi!. around the state house last night. Members of the mock legislature of unemployed men and women that has been "in session" in the assembly and senate chambers of the capitol since last Tuesday pit-pared to greet the solons they have been burlesqueing. Fifty of them, instead of the usual 25, slept in the assembly chamber last night to guard against any attempt to clear the chamber. "Speaker" John Spain, leader of the group, said "Trouble's the last thing we want," but he named a committee of three to inform the real assembly's speaker, Dr. Marcus W. New-comb, that the mock assembly expected to be given the privilege of the floor tonight.

Labor Split Eyed Another political development accentuated the split between President William Green of the American Federation of Labor and President John L. Lewis of the United Mine Workers. Green issued a warning to state and local A. F. of L. organizations to stand aloof from partisan politics until the "occasion seems appropriate." Green's advice was in direct conflict with that of Lewis who has pledged his union and its efforts to the candidacy of President Roosevelt.

Two great ocean liners, the Washington and the Bremen, fought mountainous wavos and gales today as they sought the freighter San Quentin, which reported last night that it was in distress approximately 600 miles east of Newfoundland. Great fear was felt for the safety of the Saint Quentin's crew of 29 since nothing was heard from the ship after it sent an appeal for assistance, reporting its steering apparatus damaged and its radio cabin flooded. Hie Washington, nearest of the two rescue ships, expected to reach the vicinity of the Saint Quentin early this afternoon but because, of the apparent failure of the Saint Quentin's radio there was no assurance the Washington could find the distressed vessel at once. , 2 More in Distress Meantime, two other freighters. crippled by the same southwest, gale that struck the Saint Quen-! tin, seemed certain of riding out the storm. The Polish liner Pilsudski raced to the aid of the Swedish freighter, Ivanhoe, but then proceeded to New York when the Ivanhoe said that despite rudder trouble it could await the arrival of tugs.

Every type of warfare from aerial bombardment to hand to . hand fighting with the bayonet is proceeding. Casualties are believed heavy on both sides. The Italians, moving in parallel columns up the caravan roads from the south, have hemmed in Sasa Baneh from the south, east and west. Bayonets Used Early today the column of General Agostini took Bullaleh, on the right flank, and completed the investiture of the group of water wells called Sasa Baneh, key. to the Italian objective the Harar-Jijiga .line and the Addis Abata-Djibouti railway. Soon afterward the troops of General Frusci's vanguard effected contact with the strong field . fortifications of Sasa Baneh itself. Frusci's men took Hamalei, important pivotal point in the advance network of Sasa Baneh'ss fortifications, by storm with the bayonet and then resumed their advance on Sasa Baneh proper. " Among the casualties were two volunteers from abroad.- Their names were not mentioned.. Counter Attack Falls The sixth battalion of Frusci's division, Somali natives, lost 40 per cent of its effectives.. Two white officers were among the killed. General Agostini's division captured Gum Agado on the right flank, in a battle in which the Ethiopians last 600 killed . or wounded. None surrendered unhurt, and no unwounded warrior was left. Tht Italians killed one by one, with the bayonet, numerous snipers in the caves, trees and holes dug in the ground. On the Italian left, the troops of General Verne occupied the whole Daggah Modo area west of Sasa Baneh after heavy fighting in which the Ethiopians counter attacked in great force, but vainly- : . The three main columns, according to the official dispatches,, had lost 11 white officers killed and 17 wounded, and about 730 white and native troops killed or wounded. Advance on Capital Italian General Headquarters, Dessye, Ethiopia, April 27. A gigantic motorized column, one of the most formidable assembled In the entire war, moved southward today on the Imperial highway to Addis Ababa. Not alone the Impressive size of the column but the record number of white Italian troops included, made it appear certain this advance was the final one with which Marshol Pictro Ba-doglio intends to end the war on the northern front, before the heavy rains begin in June.

Timber Land Owners Will Get Warnings Salem, Ore., April 27. State Forester J. W. Ferguson planned today to notify all owners of timber and fire hazard lands whose forest patrol assessments are delinquent for one or more years that they will be held responsible for any fires which may occure on their lands. An opinion from Attorney-General Van Winkle supported Ferguson's plan. "While the giving of such notice will not add anything to the liability of such owners, either under the statutes or the common law," the attorney-general said, "it would have a tendency to promote observance of the laws relating to fire protection." , ; NAMES CAUSE CONFUSION Attention has been called to the fact t0nt Robert Torrance who last week was cojvicted in justice court here on a robbery charge, is not Bobbie, son of Mr. and Mrs. C. H. Torrance of Albany. The confusion of names, according to the parents, has caused misunderstandings. SAA BA Minority Leader Claims Congress ' Kept in WorkbyF-D Washington, April 27. Rep. Bertrand H. Snell focused the republican attack on the administration's $803,000,000 tax bill today with a biting charge that the measure would destroy many "small and struggling" business organizations. Climaxing a series of speeches criticizing the measure as a "farce" and a blow at business, Snell went down the line in assailing new deal activities, especially in' regard to huge relief expenditures. Snell characterized the bill as a "direct threat to employment" and asserted that the administration is running on a "hit-or-miss" financial program. Definite Program Needed "The most urgent need of the . country today,' he said, "is a definite and positive financial program for the federal government a program which will signalize the end of the New Deals spending joy-ride. The. florid faced minority leader unleascd his attack after convoking his party members into their first confep'nee of session to discuss, the tax bill at 8 P-m- ' . ... He asserted that "everybody" in the house knows that the" New Deal is not spending the "taxpayers' money wisely or economically" and accused the administration of "foolish boondoggling and extravagant and wuslelul" projects. . - Congress in Dark "I have made up my mind, long since, that I will not vote for any new taxes for these national planners to waste, throw away, or use lor purely political purposes," he said. Snell said the New Deal has appropriated the "stupendous sum" of $32,075,000,000 since inauguration and it will "have taken $1,-250,000 from every family in the United Slates" including those on relief. ' "Has it been worth $1,250 out of our pocket to have Mr. Roosevelt in office during these, four years?" he demanded He charged the administration never presented congress with a "true and honest picture" of the federal fiscal situation.

PublUhen Sn4leU) 0 HOW MAY AT Tacoma. Wash., April 27. The nation-wide, year-long search for William Mahan, wanted for the kidnaping of nine-year-old George Weyerhaeuser of Tacoma, today shifted back to the region of the crime. He first was reported from Wenatchce, Wash., where a filling station attendant identified photographs of Mahan as those of a man who stopped at his station late Saturday and left hurriedly after hearing an announcement over a radio in his car.. The attendant said Mahan was accom panied by two other men and all were heavily armed. Lewiston, Mont., April 27. A week's search through two states for William Mahan, Weyerhaeuser kidnaper, apparently had ended today with the arrest of Woodrow Lambert, of Clakston, Wash. Lambert was arrested at Grass Range, 33 miles east of here, late last night by Sheriff Guy 1 ul-lock, and city police and State Highway Patrolman Joe Young. The arrest followed a report from Roundup, Mont., that a man identified as Malum had earlier in the day purchased gasoline and then hud driven away without paying for it. The man was driving a durk-colorcd Buick sedan. "Lambert has been identified as the man who last week abandoned a wrecked coupe in Billings, stole another car and later robbed a garage in Laurel, Mont," Sheriff Tullock said today. F-D to Return to . Capital on Tuesday Hyde Park, N. Y., April 27. President Roosevelt will spend u quiet day at his Dutchess county home today.

On his return to the capitul, the president was expected to examine the reactions to his address in New York City Saturday night in which he put forth a bid for reelection on the pledge of higher wages, shorter hours, and better homes. ing of the nation." Soil and water problems should be treated not separately, but as one, Wallace said. "Soil and water are running off much of our farm land at an accelerated and alarming rate," he said. "The job of holding swollen rivers within bounds of safety has become steadily more expensive and difficult. Dredges are working overtime on our navigable rivers. "These are not isolated phenomena, but linked parts of a natural process, which we have aggravated by misuse and carelessness and allowed to get out of hand." Wallace said he did not mean to imply that flood control work such as levies, spillways, rip-rapping and impounding reservoirs could be dispensed with or minimized. He contended, however, that the run-off of water from farm land "need not be as savagely excessive as it is now." Slowing down the run-offiipstream, he said, "means thift defense against raging water need not be, so exclusively as now, a matter of building masonary and earth defenses, downstream higher and higher," IATC Roosevelt Pledges Aid in Conserving Water Supply Washington, April 27. President Roosevelt today pledged the National Rivers and Harbors Congress that his administration would deal with the problem of control and conservation of water resources on a national basis. At the same time. Secretary of Agriculture Henry A. Wallace advanced a program to prevent land misuse as a necessary adjunct to flood control and prevention. In a letter read at a luncheon meeting of ti.e congress, the president said: "The recent devastating floods have have given tragic emphasis to the problem which faces all those agencies dealing with the control and conservation of the nation's water resources. "The entire problem is a national one and should be dealt with on a national basis. "I have every hope and expectation that progress towards its (Solution will be advanced as a result of the forthcoming delibera tions of the 31st annual meeting j at the National Rivers and Harbors congress.
