The orders, civil vorks official's estimate, affect the employment nf 263,682 individuals. Some will be retained on a few continuing federal projects, however.

Curing the night an estimated 3,000 socialists driven out of their strongholds under heavy cannon fire entrenched themselves on a high hill near the capital. The great suburban Floridsdorf factory section, a center of socialist strength, lay today a miserable vista of smoke-blackened buildings, torn by artillery bombardments. Socialists at Linz, capital of upper Austria where first disorders broke out when police raided socialist headquarters Monday were given until nightfall to surrender arms. An indication of the pait women played in the fighting was seen in the capture last night of the so- called "American quarter" of Vienna. Women Conio Out. When fighting finally ceased in this quarter--so known because the George Washington and Indian Court apartments are located there --women emerged from the buildings. Some carried children. Others waved white flags. It was known that women, an uncounted number slain- in the bloody encounters, had aided sons and husbands, reloading guns and carrying ammunition.

LONDON, Pen. 15. (/PI--Douglas Fairbanks, Sr., American actor, and his wife, Mary Pickford, also of the films, were "on the verge of a reconciliation" when Lord Ashley's recent divorce action naming Fairbanks as correspondent, fell like a bombshell in the midst of their marital mending, the Associated Press learned from an unimpeachable, source today. The same source ridicules rumors that Fairbanks will marry the doll- like Lady Ashley, the former Sylvia Hawkes, an actress. Not to Contest. At the same time, it was learned on reliable authority that Fairbanks has been advised not to contest the suit with a view to allowing it to simmer out quietly that he may be saved any further unwel- 'come publicity. Lord Ashley, 33 year old son and heir of the ninth earl of Shaftcs- burg, filed the suit Feb. 5 .and notice was served on Fairbanks and Lady Ashley the following day. Fairbanks now is at Monte Carlo but his attorney, F. M. Guedalla. filed an appearance for him in the case Tuesday, thus enabling the screen star to move to contest the case within the next two weeks.

The divorce action came as a complete surprise to Fairbanks, his son, Douglas Fairbanks, Jr., and their friends here, the Associated Press was informed. Lady Ashley -had been estranged from her husband five years. The. senior Fairbanks has steadfastly declined to utter a word In his defense since the suit was filed. Neighbors of Austria Keep Close Watch By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Other European governments, with one eye fixed on their own Internal affairs, watched Austria with the other eye Thursday. Italy, with 75,000 troops concentrated on her northern border, was ready for any eventuality although government spokesmen stated the soldiers had been concentrated there over a period of months and not because of the Austrian rebellion. Workers in Czechoslovakia struck for five minutes in sympathy with the Austrian socialists. The Czechoslovakian government was cautious leSt the workers' sympathies should develop into disturbances. In Germany, newspapers expressed resentment against Dollfuss, the enemy of naziism, because he had appealed to his people to aid his government.
