TWO WILMINGTON MORN INC NEWS. WILMINGTON, DELAWARE. TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 19. 1935 ITALIANS SEEKING 10 TRAP SEY0UW1 2 Fast-Moving Columns Trying 'Scissors' Tactics on Wily Chief in North Ethiopian 'Tough Guy' Who Turned Traitor Aiding Pursuit of Ex-Tigre Head MAKALE, ETHIOPIA. Nov. 18 AP) Two fast moving Italian columns began an attempt today to use a "scissors" action on the wily Ras Seyoum, commander of Ethiopia's northern army, and to dis-perss his followers. Ras Seyoum was reported to be beating the "chitets" or sounding mobilization drums to gather his men, estimated now at between 20,000 and 30.000. Among those in pursuit of the former governor of Tigre Province Is a native Ethiopian called "esto-clu," which Is the popular equivalent in this country of "tough guy." Because of his hatred of Ras Seyoum, this village leader came to the Italian lines and asked only a chance to fight his foe. Wiley Seyoum Sought Scouts said Ras Seyoum had thrown out the blind of an alleged retreat, but in reality was stiil lurking in the Tembien region and might yet fight the Italians before they reach Amba Alagi. Two columns with mounted artillery from Makale and Hauzien started marching to. the east into the Tembien region. Officers said they were expecting word of some contact with the elusive Ras Seyoum at any moment. General Emilio De Bono, who at the age of 70 directed Italian forces in their campaign of conquest, surrendered his command today and left for Rome. Taking no chances, the Italian high command has ordered the construction of fortifications at every strategic point on the recent advance to Makale. The fortifications are Intended to further the Italian offensive by removing the danger of possible counter-attack. Along the Aduwa - Entiscio - Adi-grat - Aksum line, where the first Italian advance stopped, the Associated . Press correspondent has seen dozens of fortifications, usually earthworks supported by brick walls and supplied with cannon, machine guns, and anti-aircraft guns. Even though the front line is miles in advance of these fortifications, they always are guarded. At night, the sentinels are re-inforced. ITALIAN PLANES BOMB TOWN, KILLING CIVILIANS ADDIS ABABA, Nov. 18 (AP The Ethiopian government said tonight Italian airplanes had bombed the civilian population of Enderta, near Makale, leaving a number of persons dead and wounded. As Emperor Halle Selassie made ready to depart for the northern front, the government asserted the populace of the northern -area around Enderta, which the Italians have occupied, had risen against Italian domination, because of resentment over the bombing. An official announcement said the refusal of the natives to provide cattle and cereals to the Italians without payment had brought on the bombing. Ethiopia's King of Kings, said an authoritative source, probably will go to the northern front within ten days. 3 BRITISH SOMALI MEN SLAIN BY ITALIAN FORCE BERBERA, British Somaliland, Nov. 18 (Reuters) Three British Somali tribesmen were killed when Italian native irregulars attacked three Somali villages, it was reported here today. The advices said the British Somali tribesmen had brought their grazing herds across the border. The incident was termed "minor" because some of the tribes had not returned to British Somaliland from grazing territory jn Italian Somali-land despite the government's instructions.

RUSSIA SHIFTING FROM SOCIALISM TO COMMUNISM Continued From First Page reminded his listeners of Lenin's statement that food and .other necessities would be distributed according to need, under Communism, and not in regard to the purchasing power of an individual because of his working capacity. The Stakhanovite system, called "rationalization of movements" for the more efficient use of tools, is now being used in several factories and textile mills. The process has met great opposition, however. Several Stakhanovite workmen have been murdered and others beaten. One person was sentenced to death and others were arrested for attempting to disrupt Stakhanovite operations. Stalin called the movement the means of bringing production to the point where real Communism can be begun. Stakhanovite workmen, he declared, are approaching the position of technically educated engineers. He said the differences between mental and physical labor will eventually be removed, making his goal at hand. Opponents of the movement, the Soviet leaders asserted, should be crushed relentlessly. Klenenti E. Voroshiloff. commissar of war and navy, davocated rapid spread of the Stakhanovite system to strengthen Russia's defenses. He declared "our enemies are surrounding us and preparing for war." G. K. Ordjonokidze. commissar for heavy industry, expressed the belief the movement "will so strengthen our country that no Hitlers and no, Japanese imperialists will dare plot against our land." Miner Inaugurated System Alexei Stakhanov, Don Basin coal miner, who inaugurated the system, stepped up his daily output of coal 1.400 per cent. Workmen under the Stakhanovite method are receiving greatly increased pay, some earning more than 1,000 rubbles a month as compared with their old wages of 150 to 200 rubbles. Russians, however, look on the system not so much as a producer of more money, but of more comfort. By working his drill every minute for a six-hour shift, producing 102 tons of coal as compared with his previous seven tons in the same length of time Stakhanov started the trend declared so "revolutionary' that it will change the Soviet Union's whole social structure. Movement Spreading In two months the so-called Stakhanovite movement has spread to all lines of industry and even to agriculture and transport. The result, according to official figures, has been a great stepping up of the tempo of production and distribution which, Stalin declared today, opens the wav to an era when the necessaries of life will be distributed according to need. That is one of the principal promises of Communism. Today the name of Stakhanov is next to that of Stalin as the best known in the Soviet Union. Following his example, it is officially stated, miners have hewn as much as 550 tons of coal; a forger in an automotive plant has forged 1115 crankshafts; a shoe worker has put lasts in 1820 pairs of shoes all in one shift. A woman worker in a textile mill now tends 144 looms. Wheat and sugar-beet harvesting and oil drilling have been speeded up; the average speed of freight trains has been doubled in some localities and car loadings show a huge gain. SHIP BATTERED BY STORM LIMPS INTO PORT HERE 'LOVE INTOXICATION' COSTS AUTOIST $2000 Girl Wins Damages; Says He Was Kissing Another At Time of Crash DENVER, Nov. 18 (AP) "Love intoxication" appeared in the lexi-oon of the Colorado Supreme Court today. The court upheld a $2,000 damage award to a girl who said the driver of an automobile in which she was riding was kissing another girl Just before the crash occurred. "If his metal processes were blurred due to his lovemaking. which was probably the fact, he must be held to the same responsibility as one who voluntarily becomes intoxicated," said Justice Hasiett P. Burke. Continued From First Page of its woodpulp here today, then leaves for Chester. Either there or in Philadelphia it will discharge the remainder. Then load pitch in Philadelphia for France, thence home, "perhaps" by Christmas "if we don't lose too much time, you know!" Another storm stossed freighter, the S. S. city of Fairbury. is due at the Terminal today also with woodpulp, but this time from the Baltic Seaports, and carrying in addition a quantity of naphthaline. Advices received here were that she suffered damage oft tlie Atlantic Coast Sunday. A thiru cargo ship, hardest hit of all. is the S. S. Florida, en route to Wilmington, wit'n lumber, but so badly battered Sunday that she had to put into Norfolk, Va, for repairs. Charles H. Gant, manager of the Marine Terminal, said yes-.terday afternoon that he did not look for the Fiorida until about the end of the week. 30 Ships in Breakwater The unprecedented number of 30 large ships rode at anchor yesterday morning in the harbor afforded by the Delaware Breakwater, where they had remained for safety during the height of the gale. By late afternoon they had started moving toward their respective destinations. The collier Hartwelson, one of its crew washed overboard, limped into Delaware Breakwater, after bucking mountainous seas off the Maryland coast since Saturday night. The three-masted schooner Lillian E. Kerr was escorted to safety in Hampton Roads after riding out the worst of the storm off Cape Henry. Tug and Coal Barge Safe The tug, P. F. Martin, of Philadelphia, towing the coal barge Bavarian of the Oliver Transportation Company, of Philadelphia, which was believed lost in the storm, was reported safe to the Lewes Coast Guard Station. The report was received at 3:30 p. m., yesterday, and stated that the tug and barge were at Paramore B;ach, Va., 75 miles south of Cape Henlopen. The tug. it was reported, put into the port with a broken prc-pellor which was repaired. The tug and its tow then started under its own power for the Delaware Breakwater, where it was expected early this morning. The coal on the barge is consigned to Deepwater Point, N. J. Scores of small boats and pleasure craft were smashed or damaged in the New York area. At Long Branch, N. J., the two old steamboats sank at their wharves. Twenty-one sailors of a reconverted submarine chaser jumped to safety when it was driven aground at Jamestown, R. I. At least 25 automobile deaths resulted from snow, rain and ice accompanying the storm. Seventeen were accounted for in Pennsylvania, where the season's first snowstorm made highway travel hazardous. Five others were in New Jersey, and three in New York. Seven Missing Off New England j Seven men were missing last night off the New England coast, five of them Rhode Islanders out in a 35-foot boat. Two duck hunters were unreported in Buzzards Bay. Five hunters from Amityville, N. Y.. were forced to stay out all night in an open boat in the Great SouUi Bay off Long Island, but made land Monday morning. Fifteen oystermen also spent the night in open boats off Deal Island. Md., being forced to wait until the storm subsided before making port. Part of Pennsylvania lay blanketed under snowfalls of from four to 13 Inches. In the Pocono Mountains, around Wilkes-Barre and Scranton, in the anthracite coal regions, thousands of motorists marooned on the treacherous mountain highways since Saturday finally moved on to safety yesterday morning and afternoon. Many suffered from hunger and exposure, and the suffering would have been Worse but for the efforts of local agencies, including a bus company and the Wilkes-Barre Red Cross chapter. Rescue crews of trucks and army ambulances ploughed through the snow-bound highways with food, blankets and gasoline. NAVY PARLEY PLAN TO BE GIVEN TODAY Roosevelt Announcement Expected to Name U. S. Delegation to London Davis, Envoy at Large, and Admiral Standley Seen as Chief Delegates WASHINGTON, Nov. 18 (AP) Selection by President Roosevelt of America's delegation to the forthcoming London Naval Conference is expected tomorrow in an announcement outiining general plans for participation. Norman H. Davis, who represented the United States in the preliminary naval talks in London a year ago, conferred with the President for nearly an hour today on naval affairs. As he left the White House, Davis indicated the President would make his announcement tomorrow, but declined any furiher comment. Informed sources looked for Davis and Admiral William H. Standley, Chief of Naval Operations, to be named the chief American delegates. Neither, however, has confirmed the report. Parley Opens December 6 The conference, whose primary purpose is to strive for an agreement to replace the London and Washington naval limitation treaties which expire next year, is scheduled to begin December 6. The American delegation must sail before the end of the month to arrive in time for the opening discussions. The Japanese delegation of 20 is already on the high seas, bound for London. The size and personnel of the American delegation is understood to depend on whether Mr. Roosevelt requests Davis to attend the parley. Standley probably would take two or three technical experts with him. Davis, if named, is expected to recruit his aides from amcng State Department officials who specialize In Naval, Far Eastern and European affairs. The preliminary nava! discussions in London last year ended without any agreement on a formula by which the naval desires and needs of the three chief sea powers might be achieved. Japan's dissatisfaction with the 5-5-3 ration limitations placed on the British. American and Japanese navies was emphasized as the discussions drew to a close for formal denunciation of the Washington Treaty, effective December 31, 1936. The London pact automatically ends at the same time. Davis then eaid "the United States favors a progressive reduction in naval armaments in accordance v.-ith the principles established in both the Washington and London treaties." NUMBER NEEDING AID IS INCREASED COLLINS ASSERTS STORM PREVENTS LEWES PILOTS FROM LANDING Special to The Morning New LEWES, Nov. 18. Three river pilots w-ert carried out to sea when the storm yesterday prevented their leaving the ships they had brought down the bay and returning to por here on the pilot boat. J. Wright Rowland, one of the youngest Lewes pilots, came down theriver at the helm of the Chen-nitz. When his ship reached the Delaware breakwater the storm was at its height and it was impossible to halt the vessel and put the skipper aboard the pilot boat Philadelphia. Consequently he remained aboard and was carried to Tampa, Fla. Thomas J. Virden, of Lewes, one of the association's veteran skippers, met the eame fate when he brought down the B'.ack-gull, and today he was in New York, while Christopher Beckman, a Cape May resident pilot, was carried out to sea aboard his vessel bound for some southern port. The Blue Hen 1, a racing sloop owned by Leighton C. S. Dorsey, of Wilmington, was swept from its moorings at Lewes Beach and was saved from being carried out to sea by fishermen who succeeded in fastening a line to the boat. Ssott Hart, 56, sustained serious injury to his back when his automobile rar into a drain ditch this morning. He was removed to Be-be Hospital. Several other autos ran into the ditch which was filled with water but escaped injury. Rainfall Above Normal Over the week-end, 3 75 Inches of rain fell, boosting the total for the month to 4.79 inches, as compared with the normal monthly rainfall of 3 1-2 inches. City Registrar Simmons reports. The total fall for the year is now 55.77 inches, or about 16 inches in excess of the fall for the corresponding period of last year. STORM TOSSED PLANE IN NEED OF REPAIRS His plane, a Bellanca Skyrocket, buffeted by the storm Sunday, Fred Powell, pilot for an oil company, nevertheless, "made" Washington, D. C. from Kansas Sunday afternoon. He flew to Wilmington yesterday, landing at Bellanca Field. The plane, which will be held up here for repairs for several days at the Bellanca Aircraft Corporation plant, was pitched about like a feather during the storm, Powell said. Major J. Whittley, of the U. S. Army Air Corps, was forced down at duPont Airport yesterday by motor trouble. A telephone call from there to Aberdeen, Md., brought Lieutenant Brian up by plane. He and Major Whittley flew down to Langley Field later in the afternoon after he had repaired the major's motor. A. Felix duPont. accompanied by two friends, Mr. and Mrs. John Miles, of this city, flew to South Carolina yesterday from duPont Airport. They will spend a short time at the A. Felix duPont, Sr.'s plantation in that State. REBELS CUT OFF EARS OF 2 SISTERS IN MEXICO MEXICO CITY, Nov. 18 (AP) Dispatches to the newspaper Excelsior from Guadalajara tonight said a group of rebels attacked two sisters who were teaching school in San Martin Hidalgo, Jalisco, and cut off their ears, mutilating the father of the girls in similar fashion. The dispatches said the girls stated that the rebels had threatened to kill them if they continued to teach "socialistic education." The same band of rebels, the correspondent reported, killed the chief of the rural defense forces in the town of Congregacion De Cama-japa. 195-MILE CANAL BEGUN TO TRAVERSE FLORIDA OCALA, Fla., Nov. 18 (AP) Giant machines dug into the sand today as excavation contractors started the task of carving a 195-mile ship canal across Florida.

Asked what the Temporary Emergency Relief Commission proposed to do with its staff of relief workers after December 1, Mayor Collins said undoubtably a number of them would have to be carried on the payroll for some days after that date to assist in closing out the work and reports of the commission. The Relief Commission, Inc., he said, faced with a huge problem will also no doubt require the services of many of the workers on the present relief staff. With the aid of Federal funds already on hand. Mayor Collins said the TER.C will endeavor to carry on the support of the twenty some men now at the Single Men's Unit for whites at Third and Washington streets, until December 1. or later if possible. The Sing e Men's Unit for Negroes, at Eleventh and Walnut streets, he said, will be closed down in a day or two and efforts made to find work for the 38 men there, now receiving meals. The men at the Third and Washington streets unit, he pointed out, will have to be kept on a longer time due to the fact they sleep at the barracks and temporarily have no homes to go to. It was also decided. Mayor Collins said, to ask the Relief Commission, Inc., to cooperate with the Federal Government in working out some plan whereby the needy may avail themselves of the Government's offer to distribute approximately $38,000 in surplus food commodities here this Winter. Recently the Levy Court voted against giving an annual appropriation of $162 for the salary of an administrator for the plan here. It is now up to the Relief Commission, Inc., and the WPA officials here. Mayor Collins said, to work out some plan satisfactory to both parties. Representatives of the workers for the contractors on dry excavation on the Chesapeake and Delaware Canal widening project placed their complaints about low wages and poor working conditions before individual members of the commission yesterday after the close of the meeting. Mayor Collins informed the men he had the "utmost sympathy" for their problems but due to the fact they were now empoyed by the government he could not immediately do anything to better then-conditions. He promised, however, to lend the support of the relief commission to assist any individual or family in "dire distress" as a result of insufficient wages. Clyde D. Miller, chairman of the canal workers' group, tcld Mayor Collins that he understood some of the workers on the canal project, were still receiving assistance from , the relief commission, and he felt if that was the case, all those in need should receive similar assist- i ance. Mayor Collins said he had no knowledge such aid was being given. Later Mr. Miller arranged ; to meet with Miss Alice D. Caskie, j temporary director for the relief commission this afternoon, to state the workers" complaint more fully. Actress, Grid Star Reconciled HOLLYWOOD. Nov. 18 (AP) A reconciliation between Dorothy Lee. film actress, and Marshall DufiBeld. former football star, was predicted today by friends of the couple di- i vorced io days ago in Reno. They said Duffield, former U. of Southern California piayer, had followed Miss Lee to a desert resort at Palm Springs, and' ttiat the two were "making up." i AM ORGANIZES SURPLUS AGENCY Commodities Corporation to Encourage Domestic Farm Goods Consumption Unit Might Serve to Arrange To Divert Surplus Products To New Channels WASHINGTON, Nov. 19 (Tuesday (AP) Organization cf the Federal Surplus Commodities Corporation was completed ty the AAA today, with the new agency taking over functions of iie former Federal Surplus Relief Corporation. The Surplus Commodities Corporation, the AAA said, will "provide means for effective use" of funds appropriated for the purchase of surplus products, and in encouraging domestic consumption of agricultural commodities. Circumstances may arise, the AAA said, under which the new corporation would serve as an agency to arrange for diversion of surplus farm products from normal channels of trade. The commodities purchase section of the AAA, already established will handle the buying of surplus products. The commodities corporation is expected to arrange with state and local welfare agencies for distribution of the products to relief clients. Transfer of functions of the relief corporation to the AAA was begun last week, and AAA Administrator Chester C. Davis explained that the character of the organization was being changed from that of relief agency to a surplus removal organization. The new corporation is a nonstock, non-profit organization chartered under the laws of Delaware. The secretary of agriculture, the governor of the farm credit administration and the AAA administrator are members of the corporation. The surplus removal program was begun in 1933 and the AAA reponed that as of November 1, 1935, a total of $204,156,727, had been spent. Of this total, the AAA claimed, $187.-540,089 has been or will be recovered either in 'cash or in the value cf commodities used by the Government for relief distribution. FIRST LADY ACCUSED OF COMMUNIST DABBLING BOSTON, Nov. 18 (AP) Mrs. Franklin D. Roosevelt, wife of the President, was accused tonight by Mrs. Robert Lincoln Hoyal, director of the Women's Division of the Republican National Committee, of "dabbling in Communism." Mrs. Hoyal, speaking before the State Women's Republican Club, said Comptroller General McCarl recently had ruled District of Columbia school teachers could not be paid until they had - given hita signed statements they had not taught or advocated Communism. "Mrs. Roosevelt," the speaker adder, "dips in to tell the teachers they can be paid. The 'First Lady of the Land' has openly started dabbling in Communism."

Y., Nov. 18 (AP) Frances Winlock, 21, daughter of Herbert Winlock, noted Egyptologist, who helped discover King Tutankahmen's tomb, died today after a long illness. Take these three simple steps to Better Control of Colds 1. To Help Build RESISTANCE to Colds Live normally avoid excesses. Eat simple food and keep elimination regular. Drink plenty of water. Take some exercise daily outdoors preferably. Get plenty of rest and sleep. (During the colds season, gargle night and morning with Vicks Voratone Antiseptic, especially designed for safe daily use to aid in defense against infection which may enter through the mouth.) 2. To Hlp PREVENT Many Colds At the first warning sniffle or sneeze, use Vicks Va-tro-nol just a few drops up each nostril. Va-tro-nol is especially designed for the nose and upper throat where most colds start Used in time, Va-tro-nol helps to prevent many colds and to throw off head colds in the early stages. . To Help END q Cold Sooner If a cold has developed, or strikes without warning, rub throat and chest at bedtime with Vicks VapoRub. VapoRub acts (1) By stimulation through the skin like a poultice or , plaster; (2) By inhalation of its penetrating medicated vapors, direct to inflamed air-pas sages. Through the night, this combined vapor-poultice action loosens phlegm, soothes irritation, helps break congestion. These three steps form the basis of Vicks Plan for Better Control of Colds a practical home guide to fewer and shorter colds. Developed by Vicks Chemists and Medical Consultants; tested in extensive clinics by practicing physicians; further proved in everyday home use by millions.
