"I don't see how anybody could stick a knife into himself like that, Elboom said. "He was a model boy and had no troubles. I am going to demand a thorough investigation." Sullivan said the evidence indicated Schiffer had apparently spent several hours smoking and gazing at a skull on his desk in his apartment in exclusive Hitchcock ball and then had stripped to his pajama trousers, reclined on a bed and plunged the 12 inch blade into bis chest just above the heart.

By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS France faced a critical test of its political forces as the election results showed a decisive swing to the left with communists showing considerable gains in the late returns. A runoff election would be necessary in many of the 618 districts because of the failure of many candidates to receive a clear majority in Sunday's voting. The voting, however, showed that the radical socialist party, dominant factor in the old parliamentary setup, would still retain a leadership in the new assembly, although the party sustained some losses. Left Appears Victorious. The combined body of the leftists, united under the "popular front," appeared to emerge victorious in the elections, polling their votes in a front against the "fascist menace" of the right parties. The Spanish voting for electors to replace the deposed President Niceto Alacala Zamora, brought forth Premier Manuel Azana as the most likely candidate for the country's presidency. The common electoral front of the leftists, in most of the country, succeeded in choosing the majority of the 473 electors who will meet with a similar number of members of parliament to choose the new president. Crisis in Austria. In Austria Vice Chancellor Ernst von Starhemberg said flatly he would oppose any attempts to disband his private army, instigating a succession of conference of government officials to deal with the impending crisis. _ The young prince warned there would be a repetition of the bloody socialist and then nazi civil wars o) 1934 should any attempt be made to curb his military power by dis arming his heimwehr, or horn- guard.
