PRESSES FOR PEACE IN MINES FRANCE DEADLOCKED OVER ARMS REDUCTION War Shadow Blankets Europe on Eve of Conference By STEWART BROWN IT. P. Staff Correspondent Copyright 1988 by United Press GENEVA OLE)~War talk thru- out Europe and a complete deadlock between France and Germany on disarmament brought strong indications Monday that the world disarmament conference, scheduled lor next Monday, •would be adjourned indefinitely after a brief meeting. Conferences among chief delegates of the disarmament steering committee as the? gathered for a formal meeting Monday afternoon showed France firmly opposed to German demands that either France disarm or Germany be permitted to rearm. It became highly probable that the "big five" nations — Great Britain, France, Italy, Germany and the United States — would seek a compromise by private negotiations. Their chief delegates seemed inclined to believe it would be better if they reached an agreement in the next few days, . to adjourn next week's full disarmament conference indefinitely after a brief formal meeting, and continue secret negotiations. France apparently won the support of Britain and America against German demands. The British particularly indicated their strong opposition to Germany's desire to obtain guns up to 155 millimeters (6.1 inch) caliber, light tanks and reconnaissance and pursuit airplanes, all forbidden her under the Versailles treaty. However, in an effort to effect a compromise, the British were urging France to start dis- .. Statesmen talked franluy of the present prospects for another great war, and newspapers in sensational headines, charged that Germany was plotting to invade France thru Switzerland. The French an* German attitudes remained absolutely opposed on means of initiating disarmament. France wants a four- year test period, under which there shall be no reduction of armamente — and no increases for Germany. During ithis period a system of international supervision of armaments would be tried out. If the system worked out,' France said, she would be willing to disarm. Germany wants disarmament to "begin now, or alternately she wants increased armaments for herself. WASHINGTON «IE>—The federal trade commission by unanimous action Monday barred William E.

FEW CANDIDATES WORK TERRITORY OUTSIDE OF AMES Part of Large Cash Award Set Aside for Country Persons residing outside of Ames city but within the Ames trading territory apparently have not as yet begun to appreciate what the Ain«s Daily Tribune - Times circulation expansion campaign really means to them. They do not yet understand that a definite portion of the prize money as well as regular dally cash commissions have .been reserved especially for ^corkers oujtside of Ames in what is termed" district No. 2. The Tribune-Times on Saturday published the names of candidates already at work within the city. This list was small and more candidates are sought, for all of those now entered will not be active and will make little difference to those who really are trying lor the big prize money. No names from district No. 2 were published, because there-are not as yet enough active workers to qualify for the prizes offered. Field Wide Open So the field is :.till wide open to workers, particularly in district No. 2 Which 'represents all circulation territory outside of Ames city. Out of the $6,500 cash distribution which the Tribune-Times will make between now and December 15, a definite portion has been reserved for candidates in district No.2. One each of the $500,$150 and $100 awards .will go in this district And in addition, all workers in both districts have an even chance to win the $1,000 capital prize or the $700 second prize. As stated above, many of the candidates whose names were listed in district No. 1 Saturday, are not active candidates. The Tribune-Times onlr hopes that at least ''SO per cent of these ,witt ; be active when the first vote standing is pub; lished. . ' . " -• -*•% ,. f "'*'"' . New Workers Sought New workers still will be welcomed, and there is just as great an opportunity now for new candidates, because none of-those already at work have.attained a lead; great enough to constitute a serious handicap to a; new contestant. Several sections'; in : ' Ames, arei not 'as* yet represented. Wprleers however, are not*J.confined to any particular districts 1 'In which they may labor. : ••'."; If the names of any persons who have been nominated as candidates did not appear in the published list Saturday, they should notify the campaign manager at once. A nomination gives each candidate his first 5,000 votes in-the drive for the big cash prizes. Semi-Weekly. Report Day Candidates are reminded again that Wednesday and Saturday are report days. An additional honus of 100,000 votes is offered all candidates who make reports of subscriptions written on either of these days. These reports should be made in order to have one's total, totes included in the list to be (Contin-.ed on Page Two.)

Altho police debated whether Lebeuberger was slai by gang.associates or whether he killed himself, they traced his;deatfi"di rectly to the-indictment and the nation wide activities of the gang with which he was intricately linked It wound thru details of how Leb- ensberger wealthy proprietor of the 225 club on Superior street, acted as principal agent for the gang in disposing of stolen securities. With his beautiful wife, Luella, an accomplished artist and host, he entertained lavishly in their Venetian home. They invited to their apartment prospective customers for the stolen securities There the most polished members of the gang mingled with and deftly transacted their business Only gamblers who play high stakes visited the 225 club.

The operators promised the president Saturday to negotiate "in good faith" with representatives of the strikers' own choice in attempts to end the long tie-up of the captive mines. Mr. Roosevelt was represented a; prepared to "put in effect such government assistance as may b* necessary" if the negotiations fail to end the strike. It was authoritatively indicated that this "assistance" would be use of the recovery administration's machinery for s ttlin§ labor troubles. Thousands Return To Work in Pits PITTSBURGH flJJJ)—Thousands of miners returned to the pits Monday while other thousands continued the strike which they hope will force 100 per cent unionization of the Pennsylvania soft coal fields. Steel company executives prepared to obey the command of President Roosevelt and receive representatives of miners who work their captive mines. These representatives undoubtedly will be officials of the United Mine Workers, but the steel men will not receive them as such as it would involve tacit union recognition. The recovery act gives labor the right to collective bargaining by representatives of their own choice. The directors of the American Iron and Steel institute meet in New York Tuesday to receive President Roosevelt's message. The crux of the coal situation hinges on their action-with labor leaders. If they agree to the check-off system, the strike will be definitely ended. If they don't, the captive mine workers are likely to continue the strike indefinitely. Twenty thousand strikers resumed work in the Cambria and Somerset county fields last week. Others voted to return Monday in West Mpreland and Indiana counties. Some mines in Allegheny county planned to resume operations. National Guard Out in Indiana SULLIVAN, Ind.
