BOSTON, Feb. 30 (VP)-Sup• port of the New England Democrats seems definitely divided between Franklin D. Roosevelt and Alfred E. Smith for the Democratic presidential nomination, witn the first real test of their strength, (he New Hampshire presidential primary, less than a month away. Two of the eight states Smith carried In 1924, Massachusetts and Rhode Island, seem inclined to continue their allegiance to New York's former governor. Bay State for Al Massachusetts Democrats, at a peak of power which'sees them occupying both United States senatorial seats as well as the gubernatorial chair, apparently will go the limit to hang tne brown derby on the White House rack. Virtually every Bay .State Democratic leader is supporting Smith. The only notable dissenter is Boston's popular mayor, James Curley, whose following in this Democratic stronghold is tremendous. An ardent Smith booster lour years ago.

Rogers, for the first time In a , like period. Rhode .Island, which went for Smith ,by a slim margin in 1928, still appears strong for him. Hatae Is Divide* In Maine Edward C. Moran, Jr., Democratic candidate- for governor in the last two. elections, said he "stcod four square by Smith in 1928 and was standing in the samp ifoi today." Chairman John H Dooley of the state committee, ' Smith's supporter in 1928, is out for Roosevelt and has organized 13 of Maine's 16 counties. Surface sentiment in Connecticut "favors Smith, but this represents the attitude only of so-called old guard Democrats. The new Democratic organization headed by (terrier Wilbur L.

The salary reduction ordinance, as originally drawn, contained a clause for reduction in the pay of city council members, but this was stricken put before the ordinance was brought to a vote. Adoption of the new salary ordinance was followed by the. adoption of a resolution reducing the pay of the two fire truck drivers from $125 to »120 per month.

Italy, Grand! said, Is ready to abolish capital ships, submarines, aircraft carriers; heavy artillery, all cinds of tanks, bombing aircraft, and all means of Aggressive cherh- cal and bacteriological warfare. Grand! was followed by Matstid- alra, Japanese ambassador io London arid former foreign minister. Matsudaira, short- and stocky, was greeted by a nutter of surprise and gasps when tie said Japan favnr- ed the prohibition of aerial bom- mrdment.
