JERSEY North Carolina Digs in; Ships Flee to Harbors WILMINGTON, N. C. <U.E) — A terrific hurricane raged off the ; North Carolina coast near Capo I Hatteras Saturday. Moving nortft- westward, the storm center, if it continues its present course will lilt the New Jersey or Long Island coasts. Winds approaching hurricia v& locity assailed the North Carj'.'na coast where residents, given ample warning, had made themselves secure. Some communication lines were down, but only damagj of a minor nature had been reported. Hurricane warnings were posted from Wilmington north to Cape Hatteras. Gale warnings flew from Hatteras to the Girginia capes, ani storm warnings were up from there to Boston. 'The official weather bureau ad- risory said the center of the storm •was of "great intensity." it was moving northwesterly at a rate of 10 miles an. hour. Coastwise shipping south of New York had either taken to the sofety of land-locked harbors or was making wide retours. In the Norfolk-Portsmouth, Virginia, area, where a hurricane less than a month ago caused loss of life and heavy damage, residents "dug in." The cuter fringes of the disturbance were expected to sweep the district late Saturday. Heavy seas pounded the coasts of both North. Carolina and Virginia- Strong winds and rains, part of the tropical disturbance, were felt for inland. Bridge Wished Away in N. C. NORFOLK, Va. QJJ.)— Torrential rains which accompanied Friday night's hurricane, washed away the A Banner Climb I river bridge at New Bern, N. C., acocrding to reports t& coast guard headquarter* here Saturday.

Mining Shares Lead Boom on Stock Market NEW YORK (UK)—Under the leadership of mining shares which leaped one to 15 points, the stock rjarket staged a. spirited /ally Saturday. The government's announce ment of $30.49 per ounce for gold, a peak since the government started establishing a gold price, served as the incentive. Trading picked up and issue after issue shot into new highs. • Only the utilities showed a tendency to hold back and even they in most instances erased early losses to substitute some gain. New high after new high was scored among the metal shares. Home State, the widest swinging member . of the gold mining group, leaped, more than 25 points to a new all-time record. Federal Mining jumped 15 points. U- S. Smelting reached 100 .for an eight and a- half point gain. Tickers, after early dull tactics, began to be pressed to set down the quotations as traders plunged into the market. Turnover was 1,079,000 shares compared to 249,000 last Saturday. Here's the peril-fraught nocturnal' trip that Policeman William Engeihart had to make up a slippery, 80-foot flagpole atop New York's city hali—ail because communists had hoisted there a salmon-pink sateen banner bearing in white letters the words: "Hands Off .Cuba." The climb, which would have meant death or grave injury if he had slipped took two hours. But he brought down the banner. 32 Perish In Mexican Storm MEXICO CITY fllE) — A hurricane which swept the Mexican coast, caused 32 deaths and tremendous property damage, veered Bouthwestward toward the interior acd away from Texas Saturday.

What is tbs Equator ;• Airlines Pilot Missing; Crash In Fog Feared CLEVELAND OLE)—Two planes left here at 7:30 a. m. to seek for the missing plane piloted by Harold Neff, unreported since he left the Toledo airport en route from Chicago to Cleveland at 1:53 a. m. Officials feared that Neff, flying an open cokpit plane, might have rashed in the fox that settled between Toledo and Vickery, 0.. Friday night. Neff was to have flown the regular passenger and mail plane of the United States Airlines inc., between Chicago and Cleveland, but went up in the open cokpit ship with 450 pounds of mail when all passenger reservations were cancelled at Chicago beause of bad weather. He arrived at Toledo and at 1:53 a. m. took to the air again. Twenty minutes later be radioed that he was flying at an altitude of 3,500 feet in heavy skies.

Cragg, district traffic manager for United Air Lines, ordered two planes to begin an intensive search.

Funeral services were held at 2 p. m. In the chapel .at Glenwood cemetery here. President 'Roosevelt, members of his family, the entire cabinet and scores of other officials high in administration life attended. The President and Mrs. Roosevelt who numbered Ike among their friends since the days they. went to the white house to visit "Uncle Ted" offered the executive mansion for the funeral. Mrs. Hoover, however, requested that the final rites >e simple. An air of mourning prevaded the white house, where Ike had been a familiar figure since: the' admin- stration of Benjamin Harrison. He >egan his service as an electrician and remained at the request of 'resident Harirson to serve the re- ;imes of Cleveland, McKinley, Theodore Roosevelt, Taft, Wilson, •larding.

PRESTIGE OF NEW CUBA PRESIDENT MOUNTS RAPIDLY Puts Down Revolt in Province 'Without Bloodshed HAVANA ,<IIE>~-President Ramon Grau San Martin, nil prestige mounting rapidly, Saturday began new negotiations for the support of principal political leaders. It was .reported reliably that representatives of the student directory which engineered the revolt that put Grau San Martin in office were in contact with American Ambassador Welles.

Grau San Martin -proceeded serenely with his program. Friday night-he. made a radi speech to the nation. Begin ning with a Roosevelt-like "M friends," he recounted the achieve ments of his government and de scribed the new code of prov sional statutes and the provision for a constitutional assembly. H told of his hopes for the future Cuba, he said, would respec vested interests. Primary atten tion would be given to better liv ing conditions for laborers an peasants. » He made a gesture to the su gar workers of the eastern 'hal of the narrow - island, when American destroyers are watch ful of uprisings or anti-American riots. The government would arrange he said, that the size and weigh of sugar bags would be reduced greatly to ease the laborer's work. He added that a national labor board would be created to study the question of. maximum hours.. It is "in the three eastern provinces that many of the 1,200 Americans scattered thru the country are in potential danger. The American destroyer Hamilton was. sent Friday to Santa Cruz Del Sur, on the south coast of Camaguey province, to watch out for nine Americans employed at two sugar centrals of the Caribbean Sugar company. The danger was all potential and the situation seemed improved for the moment. The government was in complete control in Havana and the army maintained order in the provinces. Four thousand persons, mostly youths in search of fun, attended a. meeting; last night at which New York Stages Nation's Greatest Parade—for NRA orators demanded the withdrawal of American warships. On each side of the meeting hall'.were long streamers which read: "Hurrah for the Agrarian Anti-imperialist Revolution. Not One Cent for Yankee Bankers."

McGrady, member of he NRA advisory board, told the story Saturday. He accompanied (ohnson to New York for the recov- r>- parade there and early Thursday afternoon (bey were at Newark lirport, expecting to take off for \Vasliington. It was misty and .ieiitennnt.

"General," the pilot protested, "I can't even see the tower of tlie Empire State building. We can't fly in this weather," "Come on, let's go," the general insisted. "General, I don't mind for myself, but if we go np now we'll never Innd alive," the pilot said. "I don't Rive a damn." McGracly quoted Johnson as replylnfi. "We'll get. a private plane to fake us."

As result of the agreement, many farmers were deserting trike" ranks, according to re- orte received here. Attempts to eliver milk we're to be made aturday at Hampshire, previ- olisly considered one of the centers of the embargo. Farmers there voted .95 to 13 to handle milk, ending a 'three-day halt of deliveries. Farmers loyal to the Pure Milk association, which is not sanctioning the strike, joined with deputy sheriffs Friday in escorting milk trucks thru picket lines. Violence broke out on several fronts and considerable milk was dumped. At Harvard, authorities battled with 500 strikers. When the new price becomes effective, it was reported unofficially following Friday night's meeting, farmers will receive approximately $2.10 for their milk per hundred pounds. At present they receive $1.75. Strikers said they would not call off the embargo even after the new price was put into ef- 'ect. They said they also would demand elimination of the "price and surplus" system of market- ng. CAJPE -TO W,; British :&mita Africa (IIE) — A national recovery program similar to President Roosevelt's NRA in the United States has been drawn. up by. members of parliament from the Rand district in the' trans and 'was to be submitted to the government Saturday.

Clear skies Saturday were accompanied by rapidly rising temperatures and a gentle northwest breeze. The barometer which sank below the 29-inch mark during the night, as a storm area passed over central Iowa, was rising steadily. A brife gale whipped up iate Friday night, and rain fell between 1 and 2 a. m.

In addition tnere were ''emergency'' expenditures of $257,442,045 not included in the budget. Total ordinary end emergency expenditures were $723,154,544, leaving a deficit of $249,006,265. The gross deficit at this time a year ago was "730,464,470. Despite tKe demand of Senator Fletcher, chairman of the powerful senate banking and currency committee, and demand by Senator Harrison, democrat, Mississippi, chairman of the finance committee, the administration was not contemplating direct inflation at this Lime. More stringent means to pump credit into the nation's business undoubtedly will be sought, however, it was felt, as the administration is anxious to lift, the price of farm commodities during the fall crop movements. Later price rises would be of small value to farmers. This indicates that the new financial program will be laid down within a month. Senator Carter Glass, democrat. Virginia, and Bernard M. Barucli. New York, financier, reached Montreal Friday from Europe, and may be drawn into conciliation on the fall program. Owners, Miners Now Negotiating a Contract WASHINGTON, <U.P>— Bitumm : ous coal operators Saturday accepted a code of fair practice for their industry and began signing the document with indications that practically all of the industry would be bound by early afternoon.. Discussion of wage contracts between the United Mine "Workers of America and operators of the Applachian group were in progress with efforts being made to reach an agreement simultaneously with approval of the coal code by President Roosevelt later in the day. The signing of the code by individual operators was necessary because the code was not sponsored by any one organization or trade association. Th'e code will carry seven or eight group* of operators signatures with independent operators bringing the number of those signing to 50 or more. The code in final form provides for fixing of minimum prices, prescribes a maximum 40-hours work week, sets basic minimum wages for underground workers ranging from ?3.?5 to ?5.63 in 16 districts, recognizes the right of miners to organize and creates regional and national boards to govern the industry and settle labor disputes. It becomes effective the second Monday after presidential, approval, which. is expected by Saturday night. Wayne and Appanoose counties in Iowa, which originally were thrown in with Missouri and other southern states at a $3.75 wage . scale will be treated separately by the NRA board and schedules applying to them will be announced later. Conferees representing operators, labor and the NRA reached .an agreement an the code late: Friday night. The,;; 1 accord--; : ^sd^6, weeks of bickering" that tampered the NRA program and led to fresh bloodshed in the coal fields. It came at the expiration of the deadline set by the president for completion of a code. The provision for a -flat maximum 40-hour week replaces a plan for a 32-hour week for 26 weeks and a 40-hour week for 26 weeks thereafter. Hours of work may be shortened if a majority of workers at a mine desire to share work with -unemployed men. Under the code the NRA as soon as possible will study the practicability of shortening hours thru- out the industry and making further adjustments in wages, representatives of operators and miners will meet with NRA officials on Jan. 5, 1934, to consider what changes should be made on the bathe period s js ° f tnis study. . . The labor relations section of the code repeats verbatim the language of section 7A of the recovery act which guarantees workers the right to bargain collectively thru representatives of their own, choosing, forbids employers to in-" terfere with organization of their employes, and at the same thus protects the right of those who prefer to deal with employers on an individual basis instead of joining a union. Appended to the code is the Aug. 24 statement n which Johnson declared the language of section 7A was plain and was not to be changed or interpreted by any provisions in industrial codes. This was in line with the attitude of Mr. Roosevelt. He feels the section is so clear that no interpretations are needed until when and if som» specific dispute arises. FACES LIQUOR, CHABGE NEVADA—C.
