Austria and Hungary took this stand when the 16th League Assembly reconvened this evening In the Electoral Building here for the purpose of taking unctions against Italy, as an ag gressor Power. Both of the nations which thus supported Premier Benito Mussolini's regime are political allies of Italy Austria, because she is dependent upon the Fascist Government to keep the Schuschnigg Government in power at Vienna against the Nazi movement, and Hungary, because she still hopes to achieve revisions of her frontier!, with Italian aid.

Herald T'ihunt LONDON, Oct. 9,-Although Great Britain has not severed diplomatic relations with Italy and may not even after economic sanctions have been ordered, agitation against Italy is growing in this country and leading to unfriendly acts against Italian nationals which may strain affairs between the nations to the breaking point. An example of this was seen today when the Italian steamer Rina Corrado, upon her arrival at Cardiff, was invaded by aggressive dock workers who levied sanctions of their own making. The longshoremen pasted large anti-Italian pasters along the sides of the vessel, and, when the ship's officers remonstrated at this hostile reception in a once friendly port, there were Continued on Page 6, Column 4 BALANCE IS UNCHANGED IN MEMEL ASSEMBLY German Partly Retains Its 24 Seats In Election MEMEL, Oct. 9 (A.

The French Government has informed II Duce, it is said, that if the war goes on too long France will not be in a position to con tinue her role of mediator. She will be forced, both by her interna tional obligations and by her in ternal situation, to put all her weight behind League sanctions, and if the Italian military operations extend in Ethiopia the sanctions are bound to be more severe as time goes no. This will bring a great strain on Italian finances, already heavily burdened by purchases of war materials.

The Fairmount Park Commission voted unanimously yesterday to throw open its books and records to the special investigating committee of the House of Representatives. Declaring "we have nothing to hide," the commissioners at their first meeting of the fall moved to "co-operate with the committee and facilitate its investigation," despite a disbelief in the committee's authority.

McCarthy, that he drowned his two small step-daughters in a Michigan lake because he wanted to be "rid" of them. The girls, Katherin Woodin, 6, and Virginia, 2, daughters of his wife by a former marriage, disappeared from Harrison, Mich., Sept. 17 with their step-father. Their mother is in custody in Harrison. Rowland, .traced to St. Louis by correspondence with friend3 in Michigan, was arrested by local and Michigan officers in a hotel here today. They said he attempted to shoot himself when they approached him. According to the statement made to the chief of police, Rowland took his step-daughters from theiy home the morning of Sept. 17 and drove to Slag Lake, near Flint, Mich.

John was badly shaken up, but his brother emerged without any appar ent effects. The front of the car was smashed. But the Roosevelt brothers--only occupants of the machinewere dismissed from a hospital, attendants said, after an examination revealed no injuries.

A crowd surrounded the car a-s soon as the identities of the occupants became known and sought to strip it for souvenirs. Police held the crowd bark with difficulty, Polire said a serious accident probably was averted by the fact John swerved the light roadster to a path parallel with the train. It wedged against a post. William J. Norton, operator of the train, brought it to a quick stop. Tine accident occurred at the Maverick at. crossing.

What has been done so far can be called "work" only by si retching the Imagination to the breaking point. Although more than $10,000 of taxpayers' money has been spent In these three days alone, the men might as well have been paid for playing mumblety peg in Broad St. Station, as far as results are concerned. That is, results from a road building standpoint. Other results have been coming thick and fast, with the effect that the Guffey-Earle Democratic State machine's patronage dispensers themselves are beginning to regard this latest dream with a somewhat jaundiced eye, I-egal Action I'rged The three Chester County Commissioners, after an inspection trip yesterday, denounced the whole af fair a.s "preposterous" snd asked District Attorney William Parke to take legal steps at once to halt the operation.

P.).-The body of a pretty IB-year-old high school girl, victim of a strangler, was discovered tonight in the living room of her home in the exclusive avenue section, After an autopsy, police officially pronounced the case a murder. The victim was Muriel Hall, East High School student. Text of abstract af Jlanptniann rasa decision npprnrt on Page U. Special, to The Inquirer. TRENTON, Oct. 9.The Court of Errors and Af pals, New Jersey's highest court, ruled unanimously today that Bruno Richard Hauptmann was justly convicted and must die for the kidnap-murder of Charles A. Lindbergh, Jr. The refusal of the Court to reverse or modify the sentence leaves Hauptmann with but three possible avenues of escape all of them very doubtful. His only hope of avoiding the death sentence now lies in an appeal to the United States Supreme Court; a plea to the Court of Pardons, which may commute the sentence to life imprisonment, or the discovery of new evidence, so startling, that it will require a new trial. C. Lloyd Fisher, chief of Hatiptmann's staff, announced tonight after reading the decision that an ai peal to the Supreme Court would be the first step in a last desperate drive to save him. Justice Thomas W. Trench-ard, who originally sentenced Hauptmann on February 13 after a jury had found him guilty of murder, is expected to set a new date for the prisoner's execution this week and it will be necessary for defense lawyers to obtain a stay from the New Jersey high court to pursue their appeal. When informed of the decision by Fisher, Hauptmann, who had not left his cell in the death house of the State prison, was reported to have swallowed hard once and then exclaimed in a- distressed voice : "My God, won't this be a terrible anniversary present for Annie."

Jures' condition is not serious. Governor Horner denied today thf t he wa-s contemplating the ordering of National Guard troops into the strike area. He said the State highwav police and the sheriffs had the situation under control.

P.).-Anna Hauptmann tonight sought the seclusion of a lonely Bronx apartment, to consider In stunned silence the ruling of the New Jersey Court of Errors and Appeals upholding the death sentence for her husband, Bruno Richard Hauptmann, convicted kidnap-slayer of the Lindbergh baby. Tomorrow is her tenth wedding anniversary, and it was of this that Hauptmann, In his death cell, first thought when the news was brought to him. Cries Out in AnguUh "My God, what a fine anniversary present for Anna," was his anguished cry. "I never did this and surely they will find that out before it Is too late." There was virtually no echo to Mrs. Hatiptmann's despairing cry.

On Friday Judge McDevitt will sit as committing magistrate to hear between 25 and 35 cases of motorists arrested for speeding over the Park drives--particularly the East and West drives. It is said that not one of the warrants issued for the arrest of the accused motorists reveals clocked speeds of less than 50 miles an hour. Several were "clocked" by Park Guards at speeds approximating 75 miles an hour in other words, the maximum speed attainable from the type of cars detected.
