King supporters claimed their candidate had enough votes to win. Report Shift Toward G. O. P. George W. Wright, temporary chairman of the party who presided at yesterday's mooting, was pleased with the har- i moiiy of the session. "The meeting showed that members of the party are ready to present a solid front under the leadership of Chairman Bushfield in the next campaign," Wright, u former state chairman, said. "Party leaders here for the meeting brought en- courasing reports of a shift toward the republican banner among voters in all ecetions o£ the stale." Bushfield indicated he would issue a statement early next week, announcing I preliminary program of action. The chairman returned to his home at Mi,.,., yesterday afternoon and then left, for Minneapolis for n few days. He is expected to be in Huron Monday or Tuesday. certain kinds of production as it has been in removing recent burdensome surpluses," he continued. "For example, an expanded production of hogs, to replace shortages caused by drought, is contemplated under the proposed new corn-hog program, which is put up to decision of producers in a nationwide referendum tomorrow.

LOS ANGELES, -Oct. 25.-(fl)--LcarinC tlie Malibu Beach film colony apparently safe behind, a roaring fire today threatened to rage down the coast line into a heavily wooded mountainous strip which for 20 years has been regarded as the most dangerous fire menace in southern California, Gravest concern · was felt as the fire, sweeping southward a mile or so oft the coast highway, went out of control. Lying in its path, over an 18-mile route thick with trees, matted underbrush and shrubs, are Los Florcs, Topan- go and Santa Monica canyons, and then the wooded country embracing the fashionable Riviera, Brenlwood, Bel Air and Beverly Hills. Members of the exclusive Malibu Beach colony breathed more easily as the blaze, changed direction and rushed on southward, leaving an ever-widening burned- over area between their seaside homes and the roaring fire line. Stnrt Back-Firo Fire met fire to halt tho roaring advance of flames barely 100 feet away from the,north end of the beach resort. Five hundred nearly exhausted fighters started a back-fire, herded it back to meet the on-rolling wall of flames, and with a 'spectacular clash tho fire that leaped high in the air against a billowing background of smoke, the menace to the Malibu colony was ended, at least temporarily. Fighters said unless -'renew South Dakota Department of Justice agents today were continuing their efforts to solve the mystery surrounding the death of Lela Hatvorson. above, Madison teacher whose nud» body was found In a Lcoln, S.

War Cries Echo Through Ethiopia As Efforts To End Warfare Are Pushed Selassie's Kingdom Turns Deaf Ear To Peace Proposals Of Individual Nations; Italy Recalls Troops From Libya (By the Associated Press) With their women behind, shrieking, singing, crying arid with the blessings of their church on. their colors, 12,000 of Haile Selassie's smartest warriors swept southward from tho city of Harar today to meet Italy's challenge to their kingdom. Ahead, moved 2,000 camels laden with munitions and supplies. Behind came infantry, cavalry and anti-aircraft corps, all well equipped and all ready to strike back at the soldiers of Rome. All Ethiopia, plateau and desert and deep jungle alike, echoed to the tom-toms of war, unaware mostly and seemingly unconcerned about the talk of peace that was gaining more assurance among tho diplomats of Europe's capitals. There was a Paris account that said Mussolini, holding forth a tentative olive branch, was ready to concede Britain's right to mass its fleet in the Mediterranean even though he has ordered 15,000 oC his soldiers to return from Libya; and that under some conditions ha was ready to order a stop to his military operations against Ethiopia. From Addis Ababa came word that Individual diplomaiic moves for peaco didn't interest Ethiopia; that th u unconquered kingdom had its case entirely in the hands of the league of nations.

Prairie Fire Now Under Control STEELE, N. D., Oct. 25--{/P)--Residents of this community breathed more easily significance may attach to talk . in Europe, there was no note of peace in the laconic statement in B Rome war communique today which said: "The action continues." For the moment the war booms loudest on the southern front--a front which is not a front at .ill but rather a series of widely separated penetrations. Leading deep, into Ethiopia from Italian Somaliland are two important .riv- ers--tho Jube and Shibcli. It is up . these .valleys the Italian strategy is di. r . e 9.* ^r^the';'BtJvanco. being; necessarily- jilow because the-terrain is none too favorable. . . · · · The first gesture along tho Juba. was at Dolo in tho early days of tho war. No significant infantry advanco . has been reported from Dolo since the Italians captured it; but the aerial reconnaissance is active along tho Juba and its tributaries as far as Magalo. Italian conquests have occurred, however, along the Shibeli river. · Tha occupation ot "various villages" along the river bank was announced. Ethiopian Officials Unworrlcd The numerous reports of village occupations do not appear to cause much concern among Ethiopian officials, and the suspicion prevails that slight re- j sistance has been offered, the Ethiopians still preferring to defer a decisiva encounter. Tho Rome communiques continued to tell of tribal chiefs who are turning-tail to the'-king of kings and throwing in their lot with those who bear arms for II Duce. There was no mention In today's wav report from Rome of casualties among the Italians. The Italians continue to maka regular use of .their airplanes, but Ras Nasibu, leading the Ethiopian forces in the south, said the bombing planes were ineffectual. Tho total casualties among Etliiopians in bombing operations along the Shi- beli river, the Ras said, were six dead and throo wounded. Certainly there has been no whirlwind forward movement into Ethiopia from either the north or the south in several days.
