Given to Police to Quell Violence BUCHAREST, Nov. 30. (IPy-Corneliu Zella Codreanu, ; Rumania's "little Hitler" and 13 sub-leaders of the illegal Fascist iron guard were slain today and police were ordered to shoot ruthlessly in the drive to wipe out terrorists. ''Talk later was the gist of 'instructions which went to gendarmerie posts throughout the country advising that ' verbal .commands" were useless in dealing with anyone caught in the act of committing a crime of violence. Codreanu, 39, chieftain of the secret organization, and his followers fell on the road from Rum-nik-Sarat prison at Bucharest under the volley of a prison guard detail. An official announcement said they bad tried to escape. Buried In Prison Five hours later they were buried I secretly in a prison graveyard and tonight no one m Rumania challenged the royal dictatorship of . King Carol. Codreanu was serving a sentence for treason at Rumnik-Sarat, 10 : miles from the capital, but had been taken with the 13 others in open cars for a trip under guard to Bucharest for questioning con-cerning an attack attributed to iron juardists. v The case was that of Flory Ste-' fanescu Goanga, rector of the University of Cluj, who was shot and critically wounded Monday. The attack on the rector was said to be part of a large scale Iron guard conspiracy for rebellion which police presumed had been directed by Codreanu from his pris on cell. Prisoners Killed The police account of the shoot ing said the procession of automobiles was halted a short distance " from the prison by armed men who rushed from a roadside woods. J The prisoners disregarded orders to remain in the automobiles, it wai said, and there was a blast of gunfire in which all 14 were killed. The guards were exonerated promptly. With Codreanu and like their leader serving sentences for treason were 13 "heroes" of the guard who had been convicted in two import ant assassinations three for the flaying of Premier Ion Duca in 1933 and 10 for complicity in the murder of an iron guardist who had been accused of betraying the ' movement. Mihail Stelescu, the accused betrayer, was slain by the. guard's legion of death" in July, 1936, Si he lav ill in a hftsnital. No Bands Play The bodies of the 14 were brought to the cemetery of Jilava military prison near here and buried without band music or propaganda the usual mark of funerals for the iron guard's dead. The mass shooting had a stunning effect on Rumania. Blond, resourceful Codreanu long counted as one of Rumania's half-dozen leading personalities had passed and with i him a name that had brought terror to many political leaders. Codreanu had retained his Influence despite his incarceration since May 27. His death brought consternation to the underground terrorist organization he headed. University Watched Guardist secret councils during the last few days were reported marking several prominent govern ment leaders for death. The guard was said by authorities to have considerable headway at the Uni versity of Cluj, drilling students In bomb-throwing and marksman- hip. The university rector, Goanga, was shot by students described as members of the iron guard. A po-, liceman who tried to defend him , was slain. Codreanu advocated more authoritarian policy than that of western European Fascists. He said once that 24 hours after seizing , Power he would scalp Rumania's traditional foreign policy and make alliances with Germany and Italy. Outstanding in Codreanu's pro gram was violent anti-Semitism. LEAP TO DEATH IS DECLARED SUICIDE WASHINGTON, Nov. 30. A coroner's report today designated a suicide the death of Stephen Sullivan, 44, formerly a member of the Phoenix, Ariz., fire department, ho jumped from a hospital window here after stabbing himself with a penknife.

UTILITY FIRMS OBEYING LAWS Integration Plans Placed In Hopper by Big Power Groups NEW YORK, Nov. 30.-(P)-All major utility holding companies to night had met the December deadline set by Chairman William O. Douglas of the securities and exchange commission for filing vol untary integration plans under the holding company act of 1935. Three more big systems were re ported to have filed today, leaving only some smaller ones, and a sec ondary plan by a subsidiary, (Amer ican Power and Light Co.), of a larger one to come in tomorrow. , Others Register Today's additions were the fol lowing: The $488,000,000 American Gas and Electric company (made public in Washington.) The $1,194,000,000 Commonwealth and Southern corporation and the $1,037,000,000 Associated Gas and Electric company. Both the last two corporations have figured prominently in disputes with administration agencies. Howard C. Hopson, a former officer of Associated, has frequently been involved in controversies, and Wen dell L. Willkie, president of Com monwealth and Southern, has car ried on lone and bitter conflict with the Tennessee valley authority. Try to Comply Associated Gas, in making public here today full details of its integration plans, declared it wf s striving to comply with public opinion and the spirit of the holding company law. Commonwealth and Southern described its report to the SEC as "confidential" and would give no information, but reliable Wall street sources reported that Willkie termed any plan for integration of southern properties of Commonwealth unfeasible until an agreement with TVA was reached. However, Willkie was said to have repeated his recent public offer to sell any or all Southern Commonwealth- properties to the TVA at appraisals determined by the SEC. Cooperation Planned He also was said to have suggested a definite plan for integrating northern properties of the system in compliance with the law, and to have promised cooperation in working out a southern plan. The act requires not more than one intermediary stage of holding companies between the top holding company and operating companies and either physical interconnection, or approximate geographical contiguity of operating companies. A holding company is defined as one owning 10 per -cent or more of voting stock in a subsidiary company. Land of Lynchings, Kidnaping And Strip Tease Is Nazi View of U. S. RERLTN. Nov. 30.

The youth', son of D. W. Drummond of Wichita, Kan., is accused specifically of attempting to sell, for $2,000, photographs of United States army and navy airplanes in various stages of construction, and documents dealing with the construction of aircraft, embodying closely - guarded secrets of design. Arrest Made Drummond was arrested by Deputy United States Marshal Edward F. Faupel, after having been under surveillance for several months. The government charged that last May Drummond obtained employment with the Northrop division of the Douglas Aircraft corporation, and managed to obtain the photographs, documents and information he was alleged to have offered for sale to a high Japanese official and certain other Japanese here. The indictment charged this was done with "intent to injure United States defense plans" to the advantage of Japan. Federal officials said they intervened before any transactions were completed. Papers Stolen Drummond was also charged with having stolen photographs and blueprints of the latest type navy planes being constructed at the Northrop factory, and of the pow erful "BP-1" type bombers, and to have smuggled confidential papers, concerning construction, from the factory. . Government agents reported that last May 28, Drummond boarded a Japanese freighter at Los Angeles harbor and discussed with mem bers of the vessel's crew the possibility that Japan might purchase the photographs and documents. Later; the agents charged, he vis ited a Japanese official in Los Angeles and conferred with a Japa nese dignitary here from Tokyo to purchase aircraft. a 12-year-old Kentucky girl to a 24-year-old man, adding: "Year after year there are similar cases in all parts of the country. "In 'God's country,' which turns a somersault over Germany's Jewish legislation, there were between 1899 and 1935 more than 100 cases annually of lynch justice against Negroes. An unpleasant side of American justice." Kidnaping was described as "an American specialty" going back as far as the kidnaping of Charlie Ross in 1874. "The most terrible crime of this sort which shook the entire world was the murder of the Lindbergh baby." TUCSON, ARIZONA, THURSDAY MORNING, DECEMBER 1, JEWISH SUICIDE WAVE STRIKES GERMAN AREAS New Police Order Brings Death for Mcny, Is Indication CENSORSHIP STRICT Nazis Order Secrecy as To Number Killed by Their Policies BERLIN, Nov. 30. (IP) A wave of Jewish suicides was reported by responsible per sons . today to have spread throughout Germany as the Nazis decreed new "ghetto" measures. Rabbis worked overtime conducting funerals. They and other authoritative sources were forbidden to disclose how many killed themselves or died suddenly from causes attributed di. rectly to anti-Jewish actions. Police Orders Police in all parts of Garmanv were empowered by a new order to forbid Jews to appear in certain districts or leave home at certain times. A new attack on the United States was opened by the newspaper Fraenkische Tageszeitung, organ of strongly anti-Jewisn Julius Streicher, Nazi leader of Franconia, The newspaper called the United States a "land of lynch justice, kid naping, false prophets and strip dancers." Official hindrances to Jewish emi gration continued. A new decisive measure required Jews to get special identification cards before January 1. These will serve to dis tinguish them from the rest of the population and must carry as first names the prescribed Israel for males and Sarah for females. Curfew Order ! The official Gazette printed the "Jewish curfew" measure under the heading, "Police Order Regarding the Appearance of Jews in Public. The regulation declared "the proper provincial police depart ments" may forbid German Jews or Jews without nationality to appear in definite districts or to leave their homes at definite times. , Violations may be punished by fines up to 150 marks ($60) or im prisonment up to six weeks. It was expiainea tne order provided a "legal basis' for a decree . forbids ding Jewslo- appear on the streets during eight hours on the day of national solidarity, December 3, when Nazi leaders collect for the winter relief fund. The sudden deaths of both men and women fall into two classifications: Deaths Numerous 1. Those who could not stand the unaccustomed rigors of concentration camps and either died while still confined or shortly after, their release, from the effects. Jewish sources estimated up to 60,000 Jews have been taken to concentration camps. 2. Men and women who died after heart attacks resulting from grief over the fate of relatives and friends or from strain and excitement of repeated searches by police and the destruction of their property. Applicants for passports who have German securities with which they have been trying to pay their share of the $400,000,000 levy against Jews so they could emigrate soon . are being tojd by banks they may not sell their securities except by spe cial permit. Gold Demanded It is explained the finance minstry wants Jews to give up their gold, jewelry and art objects first. Financial sources believed the reason for this regulation was that gold and jewelry can be converted reaaily into badly-needed foreign exchange whereas German securi ties might find a less ready market. When Jews wish to draw on their bank accounts they must explain where the money is going. Unless the proposed expenditure is considered proper, they are refused the money. HIGHWAYS SAFER PHOENIX, Nov. 30. JP) Arizona highways were safer during the first eight months of this year than during the same period in 1937. the traffic engineering division of the state highway department reported today. There were 132 motor vehicle fatalities in the state up to Septem ber 1 this year, compared to 144 on that date last year. - During the eight-month period Pima county had 18 fatalities. 276 persons injur ed, and 275 accidents were report ed. The Rev. -Charles Coughlin was mentioned in the section devoted to "the land of a thousand sects and false prophets" although he has been lauded in the Nazi press during the last few days. Other mention was given to Father Divine as "the Negro God of Harlem," and Dr. Francis E. Townsend as "the idol of the aged." Aimee Semple McPherson and her "religious circus" received the most attention. The papers said "at least 200 theatres in New York from afternoon till late at night to sold-out houses play smut whose high point is the gradual undressing of more or less beautiful dancers." RESCUE CREWS struggled valiantly to hoist the two survivors, the pilot, Charles Snead, and Passenger I. R. Edelstein, 700 feet up the rocky walls of a cliff from the surf where they had struggled ashore after a United Air Lines mainliner crashed into the sea off Point Reyes, Calif., early in the morning during a storm. Rescuers are shown bringing Edelstein up the cliff. Five other persons were washed into the sea, according to the pilot. Lewis Assails Profit Sharing for Industry Share in Profits Does Not Help Man Who Is Out Of Work, He Points Out in Urging Other Means for Meeting Present Problems WASHINGTON, Nov. 30. (P)-John L. Lewis, chairman of CIO, called profit-sharing programs a "snare and a delusion" today when he testified before the senate committee studying the use and possible extension of such systems in TREASURY ASKS FOR NEW FUNDS Giant "Financing Move Is Started to Pay for Spending Plan WASHINGTON, Nov. 30. (JP) The treasury decided today on a $1,641,613,750 financing operation for December 15. Secretary Morgervthau announced that $700,000,000 would be sought to pay for part of the spending pro gram and $941,613,750 would be borrowed to repay the same amount of k per . cent notes maturing next March 15. It was the largest financing order of, the treasury in two and a half years. Borrowing Heavy Not counting refunding issues, the new financing will bring to $1,500,- 000,000 the total money borrowed in this fiscal year to pay for operating expenses of the government. A.t least $600,000,000 more will be need ed before the close of the year next June 30, according to present treasury estimates. When the last congress expanded relief, public works and national defense expenditures, it authorized a program expected to cause a $4,000.- 000,000 deficit in this fiscal year. The shortage, Secretary Morgenthau has indicated, would be made' up by selling securities; by spending de sterilized gold, and by borrowing from social security and other gov ernment trust funds. Gold Profit Sought At the time he recommended the spending program, President Roose velt asked the treasury to release $1,400,000,000 worth of gold from an inactive account so currency issued against the metal could be used in the spending. The borrowing decision was made in a conference today between treasury and federal reserve officials. The group anticipated no difficulty in selling new securities because the banks now have a record total of $3,350,000,000 of idle money. The financing will increase the federal debt, already at a record high. The treasury's direct obligations now total $38,590,577,625. They will rise to about $39,300,000,000 after December 15 and are expected to pass $40,000,000,000 by the end of the fiscal year. Morgenthau said details of the fi. nancing, including the types of securities and interest rates, will be made public Monday. WPA CHECKS ARE TO BE OUT EARLY PHOENIX, Nov. 30. (JP) State works, progress administration officials said today the work of issuing checks would be speeded so that 10,800 Arizona workers will receive1 approximately $600,000 between now and Christmas as pay for the month beginning Nov. 25. Ordinarily many of the WPA workers would not receive their checks for this period until early in January. In addition to the funds involved in payrolls, the administration was expected to spend $709,059 for materials, equipment and other expenses from December 1 to 24. 1938 American industry. Labor, Lewis said, does not like them because they have been put forward too frequently as a substitute for genuine collective bargaining. The working man, the witness added, wants his pay each .week without , waiting ..for, and resents' "paternalistic generosity." Employment Need Beyond that, the bushy-haired union executive said: "The perfect system of profit-sharing would not avail the man who is going to be displaced next month. Production is coming back, but we are not reemploying men in the old ratio and we won't." He added: "There is only one answer, and that is to give the adult population willing to work a share in the work remaining to be done." Possibility Seen He said he believed that if a corporation's earnings permitted it to share its profits with its em ployes there would be "no diffi culty under collective bargaining in making the necessary adjust ments in the wage structure." Lewis opposed incentive taxa tion in connection with profit-sharing as likely to upset the basis of competition by giving preferred status to some employers. Monsignor-John A. Ryan of Catholic university told the committee he knew of fewer than 200 profit-sharing systems in operation in the United States and not more than 1,000 throughout the world. This led Chairman Herring (D-Ia.), to remark that the committee's survey had disclosed nearly 500 in operation in this country. PHOENIX ROBBERY PHOENIX, Nov 30. (JP) Two unmasked bandits, posing first as customers and then flashing guns, held up and robbed a drug store here tonight, escaping with loot estimated in excess of $100. Forcing the druggist, Henry Hayutin, into a rear room, they met four successive customers with guns, herding them into the back of the store. Then they rifled the cash register, took the druggist's billfold, obtained $3 from one of the customers, and fled. Japan Seeks to Push Sway Over Mongolia HOHO (Kewisui), Suiyuan Province, China, Nov. 30. (JP) The head of the Japanese-established "Inner Mongolian nation" said today he hoped to unite all of Mongolia, including Soviet Russia dominated Outer Mongolia, under one rule. (Such a move would eliminate Outer Mongolia as a buffer state between "Japanese dominated parts of China and Soviet Russia and extend some 1,800 miles the frontier between Russia and Japanese-ruled areas.' Prince Teh, who heads the present Inner Mongolian regime, made this statement as the government prepared to celebrate one year's sway over this highly strategic area of the Mongolian -plateau. Japanese officials, who control the Mongol-staffed government of this "nation" athwart the old caravan route between China and Russia, declared this regime had play SIXTEEN PAGES CAUSE FOR AIR CRASH SOUGHT Radio Troubles Checked By Scientists in Coast Tragedy SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 30. (JP) A radio "ghost wave" and a barrage of sunspot energy possibly played sinister parts, scientists said tonight, in the loss of an airliner and five of its seven occupants in the Pacific yesterday morning. Following up the report of United Air Line officials that radio reception was "too good," causing veteran Pilot Charles B. Stead to become confused over a strange multiplicity of signals, radio engineers said there were plenty of technical considera tions to support the unusual theory. r . out of Fuel .... The big. ship ran into squally weather and off its course en route to Oakland, Calif., from Medford. Ore. Pilot Stead ran out of fuel while groping to get back on his course and landed neatly at sea near Point Reyes, 35 miles short of its goal. All hands climbed out on the -wings and five of them drowned when heavy surf dashed the craft against the rocky shore. While civil aeronautics authority officials arrived to begin an' official investigation, Dr. L. E. Rukema, associate professor of radio engineering at the University of California, suggested the "ghost wave" and sun-spot factors as a theory of the tragedy. Signals Overlap Pointing to the flight log showing Stead as believing ithere was "something wrong" with the radio beam long before the plane got into actual trouble, Dr. Rukema said the difficulty possibly was due to the pe-culiaritv of overlapping of directional radio signals. Sunspot aotivity, which frequently plays tricks with radio traffic, could easily have accounted for the 'too good" radio reception which reputedly gave the plane strong signals from Salt Lake City and other distant stations but apparently nothing from nearby Oakland, the station whose beam Stead was try ing frantically to find. Anthony Gerhard, radio engineer for Press Wirejess. Inc., reported a radio "blackout" between the United States and the Orient a few hours after the tragedy. Both Gerhard and Dr. Rukema said sunspots not only caused the blackout but likely induced the condition which confused Stead. APPEAL DROPPED SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 30. (JP) Rufus Franklin and James Lucas, Alcatraz convicts, decided today not to appeal from their federal court jury conviction and life sentence for the murder of Royal C. Cline, a prison guard. ed an important role in Japan's plans for conquest, especially since it had compelled the Chinese and Russians to go nearly 2.000 miles further inland to establish direct contact. Prince Teh's regime was set up after Japan conquered Inner Mongolia and ousted General Fu Tso-Yi, Chinese governor of Suiyuan, more than a year ago. Prince Teh. who claims direct descent from Ghenghis Khan, the great 13th century Mongol conqueror of most of Asia, has been connected with Japanese expansionist schemes in the northwest for years. Nominally conducted in behalf of the 300,000 Mongols of Inner Mongolia, his regime rules over some 3,000,000 Chinese. Japanese officials disclosed they planned to build here a modern city rivaling Hsinking, capital of Manchoukuo. , PRICE FIVE CENTS DALADIER ENDS FRENCH STRIKE IN SHORT TIME After Work Disorder Is Troublesome for Police Force LABOR IS DEMANDED Industry Must Produce If Country Lives, Leaders Say , PARIS, Nov. 30. P) La-bor disorders broke out in eight French cities tonight after Premier Edouard Daladier had smashed a nation-wide general strike with the threat of armed force and by military law. At Toulouse three police inspectors and the mayor of the city were injured in clashes between strikers and police. Large groups of workers paraded through the main streets of the city, smashing windows of stores and automobiles. Mobile guards charged the crowd several times before restoring order. At Clermont Ferrand groups of strikers smashed store windows and attempted to seize the general commanding troops guarding the city. He brandished his revolver and escaped in an automobile. After Work The disorders broke out as workers left their jobs after enforced working hours. There were few disorders during the day as the premier compelled public service workers to stick to their jobs under military orders. Labor tacitly admitted it had lost its fight with Daladier in other industries as well, stating "the use of military force" resulted in a "resumption of work." After work scuffles also occurred at Lille, Lyon, Nantes, Dieppe, Grenoble and Marseille. There were encounters between police and mobile guards on the one hand and foiled strikers on the other. Guard Assaulted Guards fired into the air at Lille to break up a group of several hundred strikers who besieged them in a cafe. Lille crowds seized one of the mobile guards and tore off his helmet and took away his carbine, his cartridge-belt and his automatic pistoL Eleven other guards who were patrolling with him called reinforcements by firing into the air. In another part of Lille several hundred strikers overturned a brewery truck and fought with mobile guards until they were dispersed. At Marseille 10 persons were ar- . rested for attacking police. Lyon crowds clashed with police outside a metal factory, and at Nantes mobile guards and gendarmes were attacked by refinery workers. Inspector Hurt At Dieppe a police inspector was injured by dockworkers. Eleven workers at Grenoble were arrested for "violence against the police." Organized labor of France had sought to. tie up the country for one day in protest against the Daladier government's economic 'program. It was the first big challenge to the Daladier regime. Tonight Daladier went ahead by ordering for France a three-year state of "economic mobilization,'' and turned to a campaign for parliamentary approval of his decrees imposing new taxes and suspending the 40-hour week labor's chief target in the general strike call. Text Is Printed "Economic mobilization" was decreed in the "national interest," the government said in explanation of its 1939 budget demands. The full text of an explanatory note wras made public today. "During the whole (three-year) plan," the note said, "the French must understand they are in a state of economic mobilization." Daladier broadcast his thanks to French workers tonight for disregarding the general strike order. He said today would remain "an historic date" in French history because it was marked by a renewal of "respect for law and respect for order" throughout the nation. He declared the general strike order had met "total defeat" and emphasized his government would continue its efforts to improve the national position domestically a3 well as internationally. The 24-hour strike call was met head-on by gruff, tight-lipped Daladier. Within a few hours the movement had crumpled and there were only isolated partial strikes in some private industries, dock workers' strikes in some ports and a few street car strikes. Thousands of public service workers were requisitioned under their military service obligations to con- (Continued to Page 7, Column 1' LIVINGSTON LEADS IN COUNT IN YUMA YUMA. Nov. 20.iJP) J. G.
