M., Jan. 31.—Officers today paced the dim trail of Mexican legend and sought to find in a trile of burled treasure an explanation of the apparent murder of W. W. Brooks, 65, of Hollywood, Calif. Brooks' body, the neck broken and the face cut and bruised, was found Saturday by, a cowboy on the little- used trail in the Burro mountains. A. I,. O'Brien, a. rancher friend, said the elderly man had come, with a map, to seek a treasure which legend says is buried near the spot where the body was found. Tho map was not on the body. Sheriff John E. Casey said a robbery theory was not scfund as a watch and ?35 were not taken from Brooks but admitted the Callfornian might, have fallen and been fatally hurt. But Dr. N. D. Eraztn, county health officer, said wounds on Brooks' face (Associated Press Leased Wire) could not have been caused by a fall. Brooks, who lived here In 1883 and had lived more recently in Duncan, Ariz,, came back a few days ago to seek the burled gold of the legend, leaving a wife and five children in Hollywood. The treasure is said to be the loot of a white raiding party, which, In the days of Spanish rule, waylaid and murdered a mule-train party carrying a shipment of gold bullion. After killing the Indians and Spaniards of the crew the raiders fled with tho gold but became frightened and burled It. Since then countless perspns have sought In vain for the treasure. Even its location Is now dim. Some say It Is hidden near LiOrdsburg, others believe it to be near Anlmas, but the majority opinion is that It is at the foot of tho Burro mountains, ^lear where Brooks died.

MORGAN (United Press Leased Wire) "DOME, Jan. 30.—Italy will have a •*•*• Parliament of technologists In 1934, despite, Premier Benito Mussolini's 'recently expressed scorn of "technocracy," the United Press learned today. The new Parliament is expected to make greater use of technical knowledge than ever before has been attempted by a 'governmental body. Duce's System The new Parliament will be the natural outgrowth of Mussolini's "corporative" system. Although the premier opposes a "technocratic dictatorship,".he believes in using every technological advantage for the well- being of the state. The 1034 Parliament, while consisting mainly of technologists, will Include also representatives of tho arts and professions. The present Chamber of Deputies will bo dissolved late thin year or early next year, the United Press was Informed, and the now body of technicians will replace it. Tho technocratic body will hardly be a parliament in the classical sense of tho word. It will be a group of chosen experts from the 13 federations that compose the Fascist state, Including Industry, agriculture, transport and commerce. Mussolini Attitude Mussolini made it clear that ho favored technology over technocracy in a recent audience granted Rabbi Abba Hellel Silver of Cleveland, Ohio. "Technology, yes; technocracy, no," the premier said. "Technology is needed because it means progress, great economic progress, but technocracy only solves part of man's problems. .We try under Fascism to co-ordinate all the state's activities to give the greatest score for man's expression of himself in arts, sciences and production." The next Parliament will be organized on the basis of 11 duce's opposition to technocracy as a politico theory and his support of the encouragement and promotion of al technological progress. The technical experts will be subordinated to the general rule of the country under the Premier, the Fascist Granc Council, and tho Cabinet.
