United Pr«M Wire Service HO.M MACHADO RETIREMENT IS ANNOUNCED AND WEALTHY WOMAN IN NRA Consumers Advisory Board Scene of Struggle WASHINGTON (ILK) — A bitter quarrel within the national recovery administration has arrayed a daughter of wealth against one of America's foremost economists over policies of the consumers' advisory board, it was learned Saturday. The board which was created as an agency of protection to consumers during the recovery program has become the battleground for a. struggle which has reached the point where President Roosevelt may be called upon to make the final 4ecision. .Mrs. Mary Rumsey, daughter of the late railroad magnate, E. H. Harriman, is chairman of the board. She is a handsome, smartly gowned and charming woman who brought her Jimousine and liveried chauffeur to Washington and has undertaken a task somewhat foreign to her background of wealth and ease. Prof. William P. Ogburn. tall and distinguished sociologist and economist of the University of Chicago, was a member of the board and in attempting to contribute the experience of a long career of social studies and factual research in costs and methods of living, found himself in \ disagreement with Mrs. Rumsey's ideas. Demands Removal Weeks of working at cross- purposes came to a climax this week when Mrs. Rumsey demanded Ogburn's removal. She was successful. Secretary of Commerce Roper notified Ogburn while he was in Chicago that he was being transferred to the central statistical board, a new /act-finding agency created Cuba in Grip of Political Strife Crimson pools in a side street of Havana give mute testimony to' the sanguinary massacre that occurred near the presidential palace when guards fired on demonstrators celeb'rating a report that President Machado had resigned. Here natives stafcd in awe-stricken silence at the spot where several of their countrymen fell. , Coal Hearing Atmosphere Is Tense, Bitter WASHINGTON, (UJK)—Hearings on proposed codes for the bitumin. ous coal industry progressed Saturday in a tense and bitter atmosphere pointing toward a showdown on the -"company union" issue in which President Roosevelt may be called upon to exercise his most drastic powers under the national recovery act. Operators opposed to organized labor remained firm in their stand against any code which would permit employes to join unions other than those sponsored by the coal companies. Recovery .f Administrator Hugh recently. by e/scwrWo'e • order of Mr. Rooievelii Ogburn;'does*not intend to be otiEted without a struggle. He is arriving in Washington Saturday from Chicago to force a fchowdown., ^ Some Mpfe has been held that •the quarrel might be patched. But the split has grown so wide, with factions, in the NRA lining up on either side—the preponderance of support going to Dr. Ogburn—that it appeared a clean cut decision must be made one i way or the other. - i In addition to. the personal elements, there is also a question of politics. Mrs. Rumsey was a heary contributor to the Roosevelt campaign fund. Ogburn has been active in republican administrations as well as the present one. Politics. So Part Administrator Hugh S- Johnson said only this week that politics was playing little or no part in the NRA and. a personal capability and not .his party was the deciding'factor. The consumers' board was named as a companion agency to the industrial and labor advisory . boards. It. was a three- way sef-up designed fo give representation to every phase of American life. The labor board, headed by Dr. Leo Wolman, has been the spearpoint of labor's participation in the new deal. The industrial board, whose chairman is Walter C. Teagle, has been busy in -industry's behalf. . But the consumers' board, representing the persons who are expected ultimate^ to pay the cost of the recovery program from purses strengthened by more prosperous conditions,, has been tied into comparative inactivity by internal dissention. Sheriff Mows Down 2 Killers In Kansas; City KANSAS CITY. Mo. (UP)— Gangland revenge turned suddenly and spectacularly into a boomerang of death Saturday when three men were slain on the street in front of the elite Stuben club on the south side. One man was "put on the spot." Two were shot to death by a sheriff who coincidentally drove by the scene while machine gun- bullets still were whizzing thru the street arrested.

He saw a man ..running on the sidewalk, exchanging gunfire with three others in an automobile. Seizing a riot gun in his car, the sheriff shot to death two occupants of the automobile and captured the third. Police identification, which officers said was not yet positive, named the ^victims as: Ferris Antone or Tony Ahthon, ie "spot" victim; Sam Scola/ also known as Sam Hogg, driver of the death car, and Gus Fasoni, -known as Stiene, also in the car. A man identifying himself as Charles Gargotta was arrested and held as the third occupant. Police said all the victims were recognized as well-known "night club racketeers." ' .The motive for Anthon's slaying was lost in a maze of underworld activity and secrecy.

Coftimbla, went to their commanding officer, Colonel Castillo, and said they thot Machado should resign. Captain Mario Torres Menier. commander of the army air field at Columbia, told of Friday's events.-, "Practically; " the entire army united and"gave President Machado until' noon today to get out," he said. -": -~ - ' "The first battalion at Castillo De La Fuerza started the movement. They invited other units to join, and ask "Machado for his resignation, in order to avoid any bloodshed and any skirmishes between army units for and'against him. "The air force here decided -t once to join, i was delegated to advise the president what we were doing. He had learned of the revolt and by that time had reached Columbia. I went there and explained the views of the air force. "The Camp Columbia adjutant said that he agreed,, and the president realized that a ' branches of the army were against him.

(Continued on'Page Five) Johnson insisted he would permit no qualification of sections of the recovery law which guarantee labor the right to organize and bargain collectively in any manner it chooses. : It seemed eitremel? unlikely that any agreement could be reached during the public hearings on the proposed codes. In that event. President Roosevelt, might find it necessary to prescribe terms of the code and to license bituminous operators in an effort to enforce it. It is believed such action would lead to a court test of the president's power under the recovery act. ' , -• I342.450F MY occupants of nearby buildings and drawing, a throng of excited spectators. DUBLIN, <t!E>—President monn De Valera, meeting a fascist challenge to his government and the present parliamentary system, Saturday invoked the grim public safety act which gives him power to execute summarily state enemies. Resort to the act automatically banned a fascist blue shirt parade scheduled for Sunday which General .Owen O'Duffy, fascist leader, had said frankly was an effort to recruit men to.aid him in establishing a new and "truly democratic" system of government. O'Duffy said he meant to abolish political parties and parliamentary voting districts and arrange for representation in parliament by classes—agricluture. science, labor, education and so forth. Both he 'and former President William T. Cosgrave denied they planned an open revolt.

Under the provisions of the Civilians, Army Won't Accept Alberto Ferrara • HAVANA, Cuba <UJ?) — The Impending retirement of President Machado from the presidency of Cuba was announced officially Sat. urday. The question of the successor- ship to the presidency appeared to be still unsettled. The state department issued th« following statement which was also presented to the foreign, diplomatis corps: "President Gerardo Machado will send a message to congress Saturv jr day morning soliciting leave of absence which will follow his resign nation. The secretary of state had previously resigned but will, continue at the state department uatfl his successor is appointed."

The few high army officers who remained loyal to Machado w?r« displaced from their command Saturday and anti-Machado men took full military control. Progress For U. S. Ambassador WASHINGTON flUR) — America official circles Saturday believed the definite withdrawal of General Gerardo Machado from the presidency of Cuba was a^jnatter of 'hours. • If Machado surrenders the office he has held for nine years, his action will represent progress in ambassador Sumner Welles' effort to unite the warring political factions of Cuba behind a strong but benevolent government. Withdrawal of Machado was considered'by the state department as an imeprative prelude. Welles telephoned Assistant Secretary of State Caffery summarizing the fast-moving 'events in Havana. In general, tit'was understood to be similar to press dispatches, telling of the army's revolt and its ultimatum to Machado-to withdraw by noon today. • Officials said they could foresee no reason why Machado should not be permitted to enter this' country in event he should desire to seek refuge here. ' American officials said they , had no choice among Machado's possible successors, providing only that the" man be strong enough to end Cuba's political strife and establish .an fffectiy* government.

Evidence will be taken .to Washington to be studied by the legal advisors of the agricultural administrator. Simultaneous with the warehouse hearings - a meeting of country elevator operators was held at which plans were laid for drafting a code.
