Besides showing photographs of atrocities committed by invaders of China, the speaker told of Japanese efforts to "freeze out" all foreign trade in the Far East. He said that Japan had a "fear" of the growing Chinese nation and was endeavoring to make a subject race of the Chinese for "territorial and economic aggrandizement."

(P) The big-business touch brought no saving in the per capita cost of running the state's two Irrgest cities as contrasted with a score orners by the New Jersey Taxpayers' association today.

For the cost of operating city government this year debt service and capital expenditures were ignored the association found that Jersey City, with a 1930 population of 316,715. appropriated $11,786,648 a per capita cost of more than $36.

Crop Conditions Weekly summary of weather and crop conditions in New Jersey; week ending Tuesday, Sept. 20, 1938.

Th" much needed rain occurred during this week, some sections receiving showers during the course of the week, and all areas getting the copious showers which fell at the end. Temperatures were about normal with high maxima during the fore part of the week. No nights were exceptionally cool. The sunshine was somewhat deficient. Corn, both sweet and ensilage, suffered from the lack of rain during the past few weeks, and as a result what had promised to be a large crop failed to materialize.

Small grains are being sowed in most sections. Pastures and meadows are again In good shape due to the rains of the week. Most of the truck crop has of course been harvested, but what remains appears to be quite good. Potato digging continues in some areas; the crop now is of fine quality. Fruits are also of fine quality, apples being plentiful on the markets.

The cranberry crop is poor. I 144 Broadway, Ocean Grove, have left for North Bergen, to attend the wedding of Mr. Brennerke's nephew. Mrs Brennecke will be the soloist at the ceremony, that will take place in St. Brigid's church, North Bergen.

which stepped out in the lace of rising indignation over its "capitulation" to the Anglo-French proposal to cede Sudeten-land to Germany. A government spokesman said the new regime would not be a military dictatorship but "a military government" capable of the firmness needed to rojie with the excited temper of the nation. Syrovy is regarded as a friend of Russia. He lost an while fighting in the famous Czech legion with the Russian armies during the World war. The Hodza oiler to quit came at the height of a vast wave ot popular demonstrations of patriotic fervor, which completely disrupted normal lite at the capital, aroused by yesterday's capitulation to British and French urging to yield Sudetenland, the frontier areas bordering Germany.

Thousands Mill in Streets Tens of thousands left their homes and shops to mill about the streets In excited, shouting groups. Hodza berame premier June 3. 1935. His present government was formed in July. 1937.

Many of the thousands on the streets todav shouted "resist!" "We want the army!" was the legend on many banners being carried In spontaneous parades hich stretched for blocks and completely disrupted traffic. "We follow the army." said other, Last nlRht there had been cries "We want a military dictatorship!" and 'Rather war!" when the surrender of territory was announced. The usually sober Czech citizens seemed thoroly aroused now that the full import of the blow struck against the republic had begn to sink home. Alilio the territory was rot fixed definitely, among that to be ceded would be the nation's strong frontier fortifications. Hungary Demands Territory BUDAPEST It was officially announced today that Hungary, thru her minister to Prague, handed a note to the Czechoslovak foreign minister, Ka-mil Krofta, tins morning requesting rights for Hungarian minorities in Czechoslovakia, equal to those which may be granted the Sudeten German minority.

The demarche in Prague came after the Hungarian council had decided upon measures to assure the return to Hungary of territories whicli she lost to Czechoslovakia as a result of the World war. Hungary seems determined to get those territories back at the same time Germany sets foot on Sudetenland. It also was announced that other powers were informed of the step. A special appeal was said to have been sent to England by the Hungarian government, asking neither neglect nor postponment of Hungary's demands. The Hungarian regent.

Admiral Hor-thy, returned this morning from his "hunting trip" as the guest of Field Marshal Hermann Wilheim Goenng in Germany, and immediately thereafter received the premier, the foreign and war ministers.

Czechoslovakia. iA'i Czechoslovak soldiers, gendarmes and police began retiring from the Sudeten German region at midday today as the first step toward carrying out the annexation of the territory by Germany.

They fell back by mutual agreement toward the "language frontier" lint which separates the Czech-speaking areas from districts where German is the predominant language. Simultaneously with their withdrawal, the Sudeten "Free Corps" organized in Germany by Sudeten Leadrr Konrad Henlein marched in from all sides of the frontier.

Clifford Anderson, 38, an Itinerant colored laborer, was found unconscious along the right of way of the Pensylvania railroad this morning. Howard Burdge, engineer of a train that reached here at 7:33 a.

m. notified persons at the station that a man was lying along side the tracks a few hundred feet north of the depot. Patrolman Leo Galcher said the man apparently was struck by a train that enters the station at 7:03 a. m. He was treated for head Injuries by Dr.

H. B. Fairbanks and taken to Eitkin. hospital, Neptune, where 31 stitches were taken to close a head wound. 200 Left Dead In Worst Gale In 100 Years (Continued from Page One) The first direct report, covering only the base of the cape nearest the mainland, showed at least 21 dead a tentative figure apparently certain to go much higher.

From the curving finger of the outlying, less protected, part of the cape, there was a suggestive and sinister silence. Streams Rise In Stricken Area Streams rose everywhere in the stricken area, most of which had been beaten for days by extraordinarily heavy falls of rain, and to those standing amid the debris left by the wind there came the added menace of imminent flood. Especially hard-hit were the areas of Providence. Rhode Island, and the swank north shore of Long Island. Hundreds of summer cottages were smashed in the roaring gale.

The storm blew up yesterday morning from Cape Hatteras, hitting Long Island in the afternoon and sweeping northward thru western New England. Reaching Vermont, weather bureau officials said, the center bore to the west, crossing the lower St. Lawrence valley near Montreal. In that Canadian section, only one death had been reported, but the destruction of property was heavy. To the widespread devastation of wind was added, at some points, the destruction of fire.

Lone Hill Saves 2.000 At one point on the Cape Cod canal. Onset, the whole population of 2.000 rushed to the village's one hill to escape inundation from great waves which made the town an Island. Of the seven states hit by the storm Massachusetts had the largest number of dead well above 50. Others where fatalities were high were Rhode Island, Connecticut and New York. New Jersey, Vermont and New Hampshire escaped the full horror.

Looting started at several points. The storm flooded hundreds of miles of rich farm lands, ripped out bridges, railroads and highways, demolished buildings, sank boats, destroyed livestock, tore down telephone and light wires and left scores of communities isolated in chaos and fear. The rains stalled trains in the Hudson and Manhattan tubes for several hours and played general havoc with New Y'ork city's complicated transportation network. Eastern New Y'ork. struck only by the "edge" of the storm, suffered from floods and blocked highways.

Clearing skies gave promise of relief. Volunteer workers dropped workaday tasks to search debris for bodies of missing victims or rescue residents marooned by floods. Red Cross authorities mobilized their forces to feed and comfort hysterial refugees. Coast guard headquarters in Washington dispatched 2.500 men and scores of cutters to the storm scene The coast guard estimated between 500 and 700 small fishing and pleasure craft had been sunk or driven ashore. Florida Escapes The hurricane, which spared the Florida and the southern coast as it curved northward, by a similar fluke missed New Yok city in its haphazard march of destruction.

Sections of Manhattan and the Bronx were plunged into darkness for hours, and a power failure stranded several thousand subway patrons underground for several hours, but the rock-based skyscrapers of the city weathered the winds easilv. Torrential rains forced hundreds of residents in low-lying sections of the Bronx to flee to safety. Waves battered the entire 100-mile length of Long Island, washing away hundreds of small summer cottages and beach buildings. Among them was a lighthouse that had withstood the sea's waves for 75 years. Most forlorn of the "Gold coast's" villages was West Hampton, a summer playground for New York society, where at least 140 homes were wrecked.

A dozen bodies lay in the exclusive West Hampton Country club, many unidentified. Whistling northward with unabated Aniiuann Reversed In Aeeident Aetion (Staff Correspondent) FREEHOLD Common Pleat Court Judge John C.

Shadow Lake (Continued from Page One) the actual damage but pointed out thai it would be considerable if the Interlocking steel core of the dyke buckled or was weakened by the water surging around in back of It. The top of the steel core was several feet under the top of the embankment and the roaring water made an impressive sight as it poured over the 200-foot long minature Niagara. Lake Fed by Springs Shadow Lake, an artiflcal body of water, is -at least a mile long and in some places is from 30 to 40 feet deep.

It is feed by Nutswamp brook which rises some distance north and west of Everett and numerous springs. The spill from the lake empties Into Quig-ley's creek, an arm of North Shrewsbury river. The lake is a favorite spot of bass nad trout fishermen. The dam. according to Mr.

Parkes, is county property. It was in 1932 that the old dam over the causeway broke in almost the same spot. The lake remained empty on that occasion for almost two years before the present embankment was thrown up. Several hundred persons flocked to the scene before dark last night. The damage was plainly visible to passengers in trains as they moved over the North Shrewsbury river railroad bridge.

The extra water coming from the lake created a current in the river which could be seen for some distance downstream from the Route 35 highway bridge. Despite the great amount of water released from the lake Mr. Parkes said last night there was no apparent drop in the level of the lake several hours after the damage had been done.
