Foes said they fy he was killed because th6 proper way to eliml- ~ . from state politics was at ta* jpoiis,. tffctables of the state and nation, at 'frell as humble citizens, some dtisSed In working clothes, awaited thl funeral, to be open to the-pub- life. At 9 o'clock the great crowd passing the bier of Senator Long extended single file a quarter of a MM in length and was growing. Although Governor O. K. Allen, titular head of Long's powerful Machine, is pledged to carry on the doctrines of the dictator, the man whb is running things for the state administration is Seymour Weiss, orte Of the senator's closest aides and companions. Weiss,. president of the New Or- laehs dock board, is issuing the orders keeping the administration's machine in fold. He is taking the lead In making decisions, attending to details and generally directing the senator's funeral. However, there was uncertainty Whether his present leaders would extend to domination of the machine's political policies. They appeared to be no doubt that ethers high in the organization's council would dispute any attempt he may make to do so. Weiss Indicted Weiss was indicted several months ago along with several other political and personal associates of Long for alleged income tax law violation. .Weiss is about 40 years old and reserved. He became closely associated with the senator, who had kept a suite at the hotel Weiss operates in New Orleans. NUmeicus report.-, ab;ut likely polltcal developments among the admlinstrationists went unconfirmed as did others concerning activities Of the oppositionists. Neither camp had divulged its strategy. "I wired the speaker," said Mr. Smith, "that, since he had appointed a committee to investigate Senator Huey P. Long's activities in Louis- Ina, he should appoint one to investigate his assassination." Byrns recently designated a committee with authority to inquire into Louisiana politics to determine whether a "republican form of gov- ernmlent" was not destroyed by Long's dominance and legislation. ;His cjction was in conformity with a house resolution, generally intended to permit inquiry into congressional elections, but so broadly worded that it provided for a Louisiana investigation. Long's grave 'was dunr near two great caks in the center of a beautiful sunken garden across the drive fronting the capital. It was Mrs. Long's wish that he be burled there and the senator was himself quoted as having expressed a desire to lie in the state house grounds. . The funeral was sst for 5 p. m. (CST). Simple was the ritual arranged for one of the most striking figures in southern politics. A funeral march, adapted from "Every Man a King," the campaign song which Long wrots; the eulogy and sermon by .Mr. Smith, and the reading of scripture; that was all. But every foot cf the 20 acres of capita) grounds was expected to be filled at the time. The sorrowing and the curious meanwhile streamed by the hundreds past the huge bronze casket, magnificent in construction, in the capital. Dressed in evening clothes, Long lay on a couch within the coffin. Long Wish Remembered. Floral wreaths were banked higher as the throng passed. G. O. Maher of Baton Rouge, builder of an electrical machine 1 used to locate underground metal when the state house was being built, told of having located several metallic, coffins. The bodies in them, buried 100 years before, were relatively well preserved. He said Long ordered re-burial of the coffins, with the remark: "When my time comes. I hope I'll be buried there, too." Governor Allen and Mr. Smith were announced by circulated handbills as speakers at a state-wide memorial service for Long in Alexandria Saturday. Trent L. James, a Long supporter, and tax assessor of Rapides parish, was named as the presiding official of the assembly. Shortly before Mr. Smith announced his request for investigation of Long's slaying, District Attorney John Fred Odom of East Baton Rouge parish sairl he "would leave no stone unturned that might throw light" on the assassination of Long. Odom announced that the thrice- pbf tponed inquest into the death of Dr; Weiss, shot to death by Long's bodyguards, would be resumed Monday at 10 a. m. Guards Cause Delay. , It has repeatedly been continued because the bodyguards failed tpVappear when summoned. "I^ore witnesses have been obtained," Odom said. "I r'o not wish to reveal their identity at this time, and I don't know what new information, if any, they will throw on the case. , '<A case of this sort, in my opinion, should be, thoroughly investigated and we are going to unearth every bit of evidence." tyr. Smith's request paralleled a suggestion by Rep. Flnerty (R., Pa.) made before Long succumbed: "The committee which is about to ; Investigate i Senator Long's activities in" Louisiana might also investigate whp it was who instigated hj$ attempted, murder." fipur United States senators were expected for the funeral. ..

The Immediate cause was an exchange of words between Juan Benet, rightist deputy for Guanajuato, and Roman Campos Viveros, member of the majority. Spectators said both drew guns, blazed away, and within a few seconds shots were fired- from many parts of the chamber. Many deputies ducked under their desks and spectators in the galleries scrambled for the doors. When the smoke cleared away and order was restored, Valadez was found lifeless on the floor. Mendez, a rightist, was wounded seriously in the" side. Viveros and Vertlz, both leftists, escaped with superficial wounds. The dead deputy, 38 years. old, was well known in Mexico as a poet and humorist. He was serving f first term in the chamber and .was trying to escape from the room when he was struck in the head by a bullet. Present during the affray. was a Nicaraguan deputy, Casimiro.

AWAY TEARS OF SORROW TO GIVE SNOW "When you have visited the circus and watched the performers, has it ever occurred to you that the wire walkers, the tumblers, animal trainers, who are smiling, cutting capers, cavorting about the sawdust with feet that seemed to be fitted with wings, laughing, smiling clowns that can only laugh are dare devils that 1 have no cafe? Then, have you ever walked behind the scenes, andj wondered why the tears run in an j unbroken flow down that laughing' clown's cheeks? He just received a wire, his mother or dad were seriously ill or maybe God had called his wife or babe away into the grand entry—that clown daubed a little white paint or powder on his swollen eye lids and cheeks that were streaked with tears, walked into the circus tent and made you laugh while he carried a heart of lead. "Or maybe it is the dardevil away up the top of the tent who'has a broken heart because of someone gone. And he in hi« next cast, may slip because a tear that he had brushed away had wet his grasp, and down, down through space he goes, smashing to the ground with a thud, his body carried away, and still through it all, the show must go on. Forget our sorrows, forget our injuries, and brighten up the life of someone else, the show inust go on. ,. "Since the day of the . Romans where the circus first, originated the age-old maj{im has carried on. Forgotten are the sorrows of the performers in their desire to make you laugh and forget your sorrows.

PARENTS (Continued From Page 1) to prevent open violence. Young children wept. When .two women enrolled at the schsol yesterday, the rush for adult "review" work was on. Eight more conferred with War-ram, told him the Caiey district board has cast away the age limit, and asked if he had any objections to their brushing up on textbook lore. None at all, said Warram, counseling them to pay close attention to their "review work," and to preserve order. Warram said some of the adults were pro-Plog, others anti-Plog. Leave on Trip.

Both Rogers and Kelly said the gii-1 had klled herself after a violent quarrel with Rogers. She had been a house guest for about a week. Chauffeur bisagtees Lending weight to the suicide theory was the statement of Clyde Battln, a farmer employed by Rogers, who was In the house. He said that Rogers and Kelly never left the couch in the living room until after they heard the shot upstairs. On the other hand the authorities considered the following remark of the chauffeur, Frank Catano, made in answer to a question; "I don't see how she could have shot herself. Still I can't express my opinion, because I don't know." Both Catano and the neighborhood farmer, Battln, said Miss Hoey was right-handed—an important matter in consideration of how the girl met death. The story of what happened at the farm house, located at Lyndell, a tiny community on Brandywlne creek about 25 miles west of Philadelphia, was pieced together today by officers after they had questioned Rogers, Kelly and servants at the place. There had been drinking at the farm. They found unfinished glasses of liquor, bottles of soda, gingerale and liquor, and bowls of melting ice were still standing about when officers reached the place about midnight. Popularized Songs Miss Hoey, who popularized the song, "What Is This Tiling Called Love?" in New York night clubs and who more recently Introduced "April in Paris," became angered and threatened to leave the place. Rogers, angered and under the influence of liquor, ordered his chaffeur, Frank Catano, to get the car and drive her away. The actress, who has appeared in principal roles with Leon Errol and was featured with Betty Compton (now wife of the former New York mayor, James Walker)" in "Fifty Million Frenchmen," rushed upstairs to her bedroom.Intending, the two men thought, to pack. Rogers and Kelly, drinking and talking, heard a shot. When they reached the room they found her lying on the floor. Attorney Reports Suicide Catano first tola his story to Dr. Thomas Richmond, and he declined to make the journey to the farm when his wife objected on the grounds that she disliked the reputation of the place. It was then that Catano came here and notified Chief Glisson. While the police chief was awaiting the arrival of Deputy Coroner Harvey Cox, Rogers' attorney, Joseph Clark, rushed into the office and also reported a suicide at the farm. When the party of police officials arrived at the Rogers place they found Rogers and a companion, William J. Kelly of Union City, N. J., in little condition for questioning, due, the chief said, to intoxication. Regardless of the outcome of the questioning, Detective Grubb said, Rogers and Kelly will be returned to jail here. J. Paul McElree, prominent West Chester attorney, has been retained as counsel for Kelly and Rogers. Rogers quit the luxuries of his father's home before he was twenty, and went to work in a Cleveland, O., machine shop for twenty-five cents an hour. He wanted to be an engineer, he said, and intended to finish his education at Oxford. In 1929 he was married to Miss Virginia Lincoln, the daughter of a Cleveland physician, but before the year was over there was talk of rifts and finally separation. Hollywood called, and he got a $l-a-year job as cameraman with Paramount News. Because he lacked a union card he ran into difficulties at the Astoria, Long Island, studios when he undertook to make some "short subjects;" and when he attempted to take "crowd" shots at Madison Square Garden, he was unceremoniously booted out. Young Rogers fared none too well under the will of his father who died in July. The provision made for him under the will of Col. Henry Huddleston Rogers was the income from a $500,000 trust fund. The will was filed July 30 at Riverhead, Long Island. Under the will virtually the entire estate was bequeathed to his widow, Mrs. Pauline Rogers, his only daughter, Mrs. Mary Millicent Ramos, and to the son of her first marriage, young Peter Alfred Con- tanstin Maira Salm.

'"Damn it all, 1 he said, 'look ttt this place, the dogs are mined, the cattle haven't been fed. the blui are unpaid, it's all gone rb hell'." Miss Hoey tried to get him. to, "take It easy," Catano said. When Battln arrived last night; Rogers again became excited about, the dogs, said Catano. Miss Httey said to him, according to Oataho: "Go to bed and rest. You've gbt to get sleep." "But Rogers was stubborn," da* tario continued, "and this started the quarreling all over afcaui." About 8 o'clock Miss Hoey came to the chauffeur and asked him to lend her five dollars to get to New York with. Singer Bawled Out. "I told her I did not want to go against Mr. Rogers' wishes,' 1 the chauffeur's story continued, "as he was my boss. Later he said to her, 'what the hell do you mean trying to borrow money from my chauffeur?' He told her he would have given her the money If she had needed It. "She went up to Mr. Rogers' bedroom, where there was an extension telephone, ana tried to get in touch with her mother. Mr. Rogers heard her over the living room telephone and said: 'Who in hell gave you authority to use my phone?' "About 20 minutes before the shooting I saw Miss Hoey and she was crying. She appeared perfectly sober, however. "When the shooting happened, I was out in the driveway putting the station wagon away." ITAIY (Continued rrom page 1) a high source disclosed, today. Three battalions stationed at Cat- tcrlck, England, are being sent to the tiny island which has already become the focal point of Britain's Mediterranean defense plans. A British battalion normally is composed of four companies of 250 men each. The units ordered to embark are "the Lincolnshire regiment, the South Wales Borderers and the King's • Own Scottish Borderers. The authority which disclosed the troop movements pointed out that the Malta infantry garrison has been undermanned since, 1929, when troops were sent from Malta to Palestine. The authorized establishment of the regular army for Malta is given for 1934 as 3,276 men. Troops understood to number more than 1,200 arrived at Malta yesterday from. England. If the three battalions ordered to sail today go out in full strength) the island will be garrisoned by more than the so-called "authorized establishment."
