Observers interpreted his statement to m^nn that Italv may resort to ths military occupation of the East African empire. A nation like Ethiopia, said the •Italian noble, "cannot have equality of rights or equality of duties" us compared to civilized nations. He claimed that the Ethiopian attitude prejudiced the interests of other league members. Alois! charged that slavery still flourished in Ethiopia and declared: "All solidarity with such a nation should be refused. Italy would consider her dignity profoundly wounded if she continued to discuss at the league on n footing with equality with Ethirpia." Eden t.old the council thttt, conflict between Great Britain and Italy was impossible because the latter nation had promised to respect ' Great Britain's interest in Ethiopia "and Great Britain is sum these interests will be respected in the future." Dr. Ruiz of Argentina. president of the council, announced that the Ethiopian delegation wished time to prepare a reply to Italy and said the time for the next meeting would be announced later. Premier Laval of Prance pleaded for conciliation on the part of both Italy and Great Britain, declaring: "I am convinced the Italo-Ettiiopian dispute can be .settled by the league." As the council members assembled., Italy had filed a protest against Ethiopian membership in the ieauge. (The Italian memorandum charged that Ethiopia by her conduct "plnccd herself openly outside the league and rendered herself unworthy of the confidence accorded her when she was admitted.") Prance and Great Britain, which have been of somewhat divergent ideas concerning the paths to peace in the Italo-Ethiopian controversy, were reported to have attained a common footing. Shortly before the League of Nations council was to meet in private session (at 4 n. m.—9 a. m. CST) *he British delegation announced: "Great Britain and France have net only agreed on the text of the report of Anthony Eden, minister for League of Nations affairs, of the Paris parley, but Mr. Eden and Premier Laval of Prance actually drafted it together and believe the text is agreeable to the Italians."

"Of — ATTORNEY IS KILLED HABLAN, Ky., Sept. 4 (/P)— County Attorney Elom Micldlcton, who engaged in a bitter controversy with the Harlan grand jury over state troops supervising the primary, was fatally in- today by an explosion of dynamite that wrecked his automobile. He died , shortly afterwards in the Hai'Ia'n hospital. medical director of the camp. The word of Dr. Main's death Was brought to the mainland by Dr. Lnsser Alexander, a medical examiner at the camp. , Graphically, Dr. Alexander described the Monday night of horror: "1 was at Snake Creek hotel, which was used as a hospital. This collapsed about 10 p. many persons under m., with the ruins. There were about 40 patients in this building, about half of them women and children. Out of this number, there were only seven men and three or four of the women saved. When we found the water still rising, we made our way to .the railroad track. We dug holes into the earth under the cross ties so we could protect our heads from the flying debris. This was the only v/ay we could keep our brains from being crushed put. We stayed on the railroad tracks until 3 a. m. (Tuesday) as that was the only place above water. At daybreak Tuesday, we found a tank car full of water which offered refuge." Nothing Undamaged Coffee was made for the ill and Injured, Dr. Alexander said. In the afternoon, Buck Wright (one of the men at the camp, evidently) and several others who had row boats took Dr. Alevander and the other survivors across Snake Creek, separating Matecumbe Key from Lar- jo Key, one at a time. From ;here, they were brought to Miami in rescue trucks. An Associated Press correspondent in Miami, who flew over the devastated Keys area, reported: '"Below Tavernier to the Vaca Keys, in the region that bore the brunt of the tropical hurricane, almost nothing man-made remains. Nothing is whole, undamaged. "Houses, are ' twisted piles of natchwood. Boats are piled high on dry land, shattered and twisted, "The veterans camps are literally :lat. The lumber that went into building them is strewn askew." West Coast Endangered The hurricane, after raging across ;he Keys, swerved to the north in ;he Gulf of Mexico 'and endangered cities on the Florida west coast. The full intensity of the hurricane In this area, was looked for around Cedar Key, a dot of land in ;he Gulf 90 miles north of St. Petersburg, connected with the mainland only by a narrow, causeway. Many of the 1,200 residents of Cedar Key began evacuating the village when the word of the ap- iroaching hurricane reached them. The school and other substantial buildings were thrown open as shelters. Most of the homes in Cedar Key are of flimsy, wooden construction.

Paul ftoy of Gettysburg extended the invitation on behalf of the Pennsylvania state commission and Gov. George H, BJarle of that state. He said Confederate and union forces, meeting at Gettysburg .in 1813, had agreed to return Is years after the battle for a final get'to- gether. At the opening session of the forty-fifth annual reunion of the United Confederate Veterans, aged soldiers rose, waved their arms, and cheered with husky voices as the United States Marine band played "Dixie." Gen. Rice A. Pierce of union City, Tenn., commander-in-chief of the veterans, and Gen. Harry Rene Lee of Nashville, Tenn., adjustant general and chief of staff, addressed their comrades. Carl Hlnton, reunion director and past commander of the sons of confederate veterans, urged acceptance of the Invitation for the joint rally of -the opposing forces. Dallas, Shreveport, La., and Atlanta, Ga., were expected to ask for the. 1936 reunion and the U. C. V. Because of the advanced age of the remaining veterans, it has been suggested that no other meetings be attempted. With death thinning the ranks by 20 per cent each year, his year's rally was expected 'to be trie last for many of the southern warriors. The vote on the Joint reunion came after Roy had assured the southern veterans that they would 5e allowed to carry 'the stars and bars of the confederacy when and where they pleased. He said he would present a similar invitation to the meeting of the G. A. R. at Grand Rapid.s, Mich., next week * Gov. James V. Allred spoke to the veterans at their annual convention last night.
