The movements In general have been carried out behind official secrecy and It was believed they were calculoted not to alarm the British people or the diplomats at Geneva, but- to serve at the same time, as a stern warning that Great Britain Is prepared to maintain her prestige in the Mediterranean. Diplomatic circles today reeard- ed £ "good will" Sunday visit of Bernardo Dl Attolico, Italian ambassador to Berlin, to Reichsfuehrer Hitler as a warning round of grapeshot across the bow of Premier Laval's cherished anti-German front. Startled by the unheralded meeting, an almost unprecedented occurrence for Sunday, British circles regarded it as an attempt to slow up French support of Britain at Geneva. It was further viewed uneasily as n Duce's bid for "Germany's understanding" and as a tentative proposal to bury the hatchet between Italy and Germany. Deep significance was also attached to the fact that the official reception of Attolico was mov- de up three weeks ahead of schedule at the request of the Italian government, according to reports. British 'Play Up" ^ .Shooting of Long LONDON, Sept. 9 (AP)—The shooting of Huey Long took precedence here today in the press over, the Italo-Ethiopian situation. Papers recalled that Great Britain had had no similar incident for more than 100 years. The Baton Rouge accounts were featured with pictures of Senator Long and the Louisiana capital building under such captions as the following: "Huey Long Shot." "Dictator Likely to Recover." "Gun Battle in Senate House of Louisiana." The evening Standard said in an editorial: "Although he had never indulged in • anti-British utterances, tpng.does not command any particular sympathy in Great Britain. But Britons of all parties will unite in the wish he may recover from the assassin's bullets which struck him down. We in Great Britain are in more fortunate circumstances than America. There has not been an assassination of a political leader here in more than a hundred years," WOMAN MAY BUN AUSTIN, Sept. 9 W)—The possibility that Mrs. Arthur P. Duggan would be a candidate to succeed her husband in the Texas senate from the south district developed today. Arthur P. Duggan Jr., son of the late senator, said the question probably would be discussed at a family conference soon. He said his mother had expressed no views on her possible candidacy.

Heavily armed guards stood al the doors of the Louisiana house of representatives. Persons Searched Men with saWed-Off shotguns and rifles were in front of the governor's office where Long was wounded. Scores of other plalnclothes men were at the state house entrance and in the basement. Persons entering the building were searched for arms. The assault on the senator was as dramatic as many of his own appearances before the public and in the legislative halls of Louisiana and Washington. The legislature had just recessed for the night. The senator strode from the assembly hall, accompanied by his ever-present bodyguard and Supreme Court Justice John B. Fournet. "Everybody be here In the morning," Long called to aides. "Tell everybody to be here." Weiss—A son-in-law of Judge B. H, Pavy of Opelousa, a political opponent of Long—had been waiting around the corridors of the new $5.000,000 skyscraper statehouse. He hurtledly stepped up to the senator, pulled a pistol from inside his white linen jacket and pressed it against Long. Justice Deflects Gun But before he could press the trigger again Justice Fournet lurched at him, deflecting the bullet. The pistol then jammed. The course of the bullet which struck Long entered the upper portion of the abdomen, piercing the body. The bullet twice penetrated the transverse colon and caused considerable hemorrhage. There was another immediate roar of gunfire. Members of Long's bodyguard had shot Weiss through the he-art. The doctor's body lay on the floor, blood-splotches on the left breast of his linen jacket. In the excitement, the bodyguard for a moment lost sight of the senator. Blood streaming from his mouth, caused by hemorrhages, Long staggered down a stairway from the main corridor of the capital. Near the basement exit of the capital, Long fell into the arms of Public Service Commissioner James O'Connor. He muttered to him: "Jimmy, my boy, I am shot." Shouts For Gun Everywhere, over the capital, aides rushed to protect the senator from further assault. O'Connor pulled out a pistol he was carrying in his coat, hold it in one hand as he helped Long in a taxi cab and hurried the senator to the Our Lady of the Lake hospital, a short distance away. Back upstairs, Governor O. K. Allen—the senator's friend from his boyhood—rushed out of his office. "Give me a gun," he shouted. "Somebody give me a gun." The calmest person through it all was Long. At the hospital, placed on an operating table for an emergency operation on his wound, Long said: "Nobody is to give any statements." Physicians informed him the operation was necessary. He told them to go ahead, gritted tils teeth, waved away an anae- sthetic, and murmured out a prayer as the physicians cleansed the wound. Mrs. Long: Arrives Mrs. Long arrived two hours later trom New Orleans, with the three children—Rose, Russell and Palmer Flsed Long—she rushed to Baton Rouge in an automobile. Composed, but with eyes showing evidence of weeping, she left the hospital room and said: "He told me 'I may not come back, but I'll die fighting'." On the way to the hospital, O'Connor disclosed, Long quietly said, in the taxicab: "I wonder why he shot me." Weiss' relatives also pondered this question. One of the bills before he special session, it was reported. vould "geirymander" Judge Pavy's district. The doctor's mother, when she earned of her son's death, said "Oh, feod, we've been opposed t6 i*ng 'but t didn't think he wOuld do a ! thing like that.' 4 Weiss Wart Bitter A. J. Pavy of opelusas, a brother- in-law of Weiss, told the Associated Press the senator's assailant "was a calm and deliberate man, although somewhat high strung. "There Was nothing on his part to indicate to his family he would ever do such a thing. He felt bitterly toward Senator Long, but no more so than many Other persons I know, and as far as I know he had no specific grievance against the senator." > In contrast to the reports the bill in the legislature would cost Judge Pavy his seat, young Pavy said: "My father was not losing his judgeship, he was merely being transferred from one district to another. Dr. Weiss felt bitter toward Long, but not for anything the senator had done to him personally. "It came as a terrible shock to all of us. He was not In politics, he had never sought public office of any kind and he was not Interested In gaining any office." Weiss was graduated from Tulane university medical school in 1927, did post graduate work In Vienna and served his interneship in tne American hospital in Paris. In December, 1933, he married Miss Louise Yvonne Pavy, daughter of the jurist. Planned Attempts In the Tulane class prophecy, at his graduation, It was said of Weiss: "With knowledge a plenty and friends galore, he is bound to go out and make the world taks notice." Dr. Weiss, apparently, had thoroughly planned his attempt to assassinate Long. Two Baton Rouge persons who were in the state house witnessing the proceedings of the special session—Fred Watklns and N. A. Shelton—said they saw Weiss lurking In a corridor near the office of Governor Allen. They said Weiss muttered as they passed: , "It won't ba long now." Not only from. Weiss' relatives but from other political opponents came expressions of regret for the phvsician's deed. Oscar R. Whilden, vice chairman of -the square deal association, an organization vigorously opposing the senator's domination of the state, said: Attempts Flared "It is a pity a thing like that lappened. It was never the intention of the square dealers to want anything like that done." The news of the attempt on Long's life brought from the Rev. Gerald LI. • Smith, national organizer of he senator's "share-the-wealth" clubs, a plea for all members of he society "to spend at least five minutes a day in prayer." The bullet fired by Weiss ended ,he estrangement »f years' stand- ng between the s^n^t"* 1 B V ""' '~ brother, Dr. George B. Long, a Tulspl dentist. He ended a hunting trip and lastened to his brother's bedside. There was no denying the senator was in fear of such attempts, albeit political opponents frequently scoffed at the size of his body- uard. • • These guards were in appearance with the senator, everywhere, except on the floor of the United States senate. They accompanied him on his frequent trips to New York and stood guard in the foyer of hfs hotel suite. The senator's sister, Miss Callie Long, informed of the shooting in Denver, Colo., said "I had a premonition that something would happen." The bodyguards—two of the best known of them were Joe Messina and Murphy Roden— generally strode beside the senator or in the rear. Seldom (did they precede him. They walked beside him last night. Thus, Dr. Weiss had a clear field to approach the senator. Sheeting Described Long was enroute to the office of Governor Allen when he was shot. Smith preceded Long to the governor's office. "As I reached the door of the governor's reception room I turned in," he said. "Just as I stepped across the threshold of the door I heard Senator Long cry out loudly. I knew instantly it was his voice." "In a split second I heard a shot; Mother to Pafee Kidnaping Trial Cooking Schools use and recommend ADMIRATION COFFEE Houiewlvei, hoiteuei, ifudenti of cookery, will have a treat for i»v«r«l day* thli week, if they attend the leiijpni pf the School of Cookery, conducted under the auipicei of thi* nowipaper.

ITALY (Continued From Page 1) AUSTIN, Sept. 0 (ffy- The state canvassing board began the official canvass today of returnm from the Special election August 34, The canvass started despite the absence Of Attorney 'General William McOratv, who, with Governor Allred and secretary.of State R. B. Stanford, comprise the' board. On the official tabulation and certlficatlori, 8 constitutional amendments, which unofficial returns showed were adopted, will become effective, although enabling leglsla- lation will be necessary to put them In effect. One amendment repealed statewide prohibition, substituting a. system of local option. The others provided a salary Instead of a fee, basis of remunerating certain county officers, and authorized old age pensions, temporary commital of insane without trial by jury and suspension of sentnces by Judges. Returns received from Culberson, Jim Hogg, Potter, and Uvalde counties reduced the number of counties unreported to 23, but Governor Allred said missing returns had been telegraphed for and the canvass would proceed.
