(/P)~Through a s-.ystcin of pre-arranged signals, operators of roadside filling- stations, tourist camps and eating ntprids may play a part in aiding- the sliite department of public safety to "bottle up" criminals peeking to evade pursuit. L. G. Phares, acting director of the department, said he may recommend to the public safety commission that 14 well manned district offices be established at strategic points. Since the men must spend much of their time on the road out of contact with headquarters the wayside businessmen would be used to advise patrolmen when something big was breaking and to call headquarters.

(£>)—A second protest from the German government grew today from the July riot In which the nazl flag was ripped from the mast of the Bremen—this one because of remarks attributed to the New York City magistrate who freed five men Involved In the melee. Like the ether, the state department promised to Investigate. To day's protest was made by Ambassador Hans Luther under Instructions from the German foreign office. He protested to the department orally against what German officials considered an unwarranted "Insult." The ambassador discussed the question with Secretary Hull for nearly an hour, and declined any comment as he left the state department. State department officials later let It be known that the secretary had assured the ambassador that Governor Herbert Lehman of New ;York would be asked for an Immediate report. No answer is expected until sometime next week. • The understanding here was that Ambassador Luther objected to remarks about the Nazi flag that were attributed to Magistrate Louis B. Brodsky. The magistrate spoke of opinions held by "the defendants and others of our citizenry" that the nazl flag flying in American territory had been provocation for the riot. He said some citizens appeared to have been provoked through "flaunting of an emblem which .symbolizes all that Is antithetical to American ideals of the God-given and inalienable right of all peoples to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness." Brodsky also was quoted as expressing views held by "others" that "the prominent display of this emblem even carried with it the same sinister Implications as a pirate ship, sailing defiantly into the harbor of a nation, one whose ships it had just scuttled, with the black flag of piracy proudly Hying aloft." 37 Arrests Made For Intoxication Here In August Arrests by the police department in August numbered 57, of which 37 were for Intoxication.

MERRILY WE ROLL ALONG! tt And Sudden Death" -O KENTUCKY CITY BALLOTS UNDER EYES OF ARMY 750 Guardsmen Keep The Peace at Harlan HARLAN, Ky.. Sept. 7. lan citizens voted under national- guard guns for the third time in two years as Kentucklans registered their verdict today between two battling democratic factions in the statewide runoff primary, nominating candidates for governor • and other offices. Leaving 40 men under orders to watch ballot boxes until the vote is counted, the rest of the 750 men ordered here by. Gov. Ruby Laffoon withdrew tonight. The Harlan vote was heavier than in August, ^Sheriff Theodore B, Mlddleton and other officials attributing this to citizens' resentment at the military occupations. Many precincts used all the ballots of their allotment in a few hours. The county—condemned by Governor Laffoon as the abode of "a reign of terror"—today had one of the quietest elections in its history. Only trivial disputes arose and no shots were heard. There was no recurrence of the turbulence which has in the past spilled blood in Hatlan elections See ELECTION. Page 8 B. J. S. FURNAS (Reprinted by Permission of "The Reader's Digest") psUBLICIZING the total of motoring injuries—almost a million last year, with 36,000 deaths—never gets to first base in jarring the motorist into a realization of the appalling risks of motoring. He does not translate dry statistics into a reality of blood and agony. Figures exclude the pain and horror of savage mutilation—which means they leave out the point. They need to be brought closer home. A. passing look at a bad smash or the news that a fellow you had lunch with last week is in a hospital with a broken back will make any driver but a born fool slow down at least temporarily. But what is needed is a vivid and sustained realization that every time you step on the throttle, death gets In beside you, hopefully waiting for his chance. That single horrible accident you may have witnessed Is (Here in full text, is an article acclaimed as the most powerful deterrent to traffic accidents ever put into words. With school opening tomorrow, The NEWS thought it especially timely. Like the gruesome spectacle of a bad accident, tbe realistic details may nauseate some readers. But you arc invited to attempt to read it in its entirety—Editor). no isolated horror. That sort of thing happens every hour of the day, everywhere In the United States. If you really felt that, perhaps the stickful of type of Monday's paper recording that a total of 29 local citizens were killed jn week-end crashes would rate something more than! a perfunctory tut-tut as you turn back, to the sports page. AN.ENTERPRISING judge now and again sentences reckless drivers to tour the accident end of a city morgue. But even a mangled body on a slab, waxily portraying the consequences of 'bad motoring judgment, isn't a patch on the scene of the accident itself.

MM T POPE URGES PEACEFUL MEANS, CONDONES 'NEEDS' (By The Associated Press.) ' AH Italian consuls in Ethiopia WCI-D recalled to Addis Ababa Saturday, a move many observers interpreted as predicting- an ultimate war. Other developments: Home—Pope Pius expressed Old wish Italy's "needs" in Ethiopia might be achieved by peaceful means and said: "From our latest information, we seem to see forming on the horizon a rain- • bow of peace." •£ Geneva—A sub-committee of the League council asked Italy and Ethiopia not to resort to force pending attempts to settle the dispute. ADDIS ABABA, Sept. 7. (/P)—Italy called all its consuls in Ethiopia ' to Addis Ababa today in a precau- ' tionary move and one which many regarded as an Indication of ultimate war. The order, explained the great distances and lack of communications made it desirable to remove the consuls from possible., danger zones, adding it would take some of them several weeks to reach;: the capital by horseback. (A government spokesman In, ; Rome said Vinci-Gigliucci acted on' his own initiative in view of the unsettled conditions and not under orders of the foreign office.) The recall, it was believed certain, would not only disturb Ethiopians but also foreigners in the interior. The Italian minister told the Ethiopian foreign minister he believed his action would prevent a recurrence of alleged incidents Involving mistreatment of consuls. • A French suggestion of the possibility 'of an Italian protectorate over \ Ethiopia, similar to Britain's position in Iraq, has been summarily rejected by Ethiopian unofficial sources as beyond all discussion.
