Behind a curtain of silence drawn around the statehouse, the divergent Interests and ambitions of Long's followers created an impression of confusion in their ranks, and foes of the Long machine seized the opportunity to begin their attack. "Long is dead but Longism still lives," Mrs. Hilda Phelps Hammond, chairman of the women's commmit- teejrf Louisiana said. The committee has sought to have Seha 1 tor John H. Overtoil unseated frdm the United States senate on the^clairn that he had been elected through fraud Inspired by the Long machine. "in 1 Louisiana absolute tyranny still reigns," Mrs. Hammond said in a statement. "The cruel, shackling laws stand upon the statute books and corruptionlste are still in control, while in Washington Longlsm lives oh in the fradulcnt title of Jbhn H. Overton' to his seat In the senate of the United States. "The battle of the women's committee of Louisiana has always been based on principles, not on personalities. That fight goes on." Bitter Statement To offset the rapidly developing attacks, Governor O. K. Allen, titular head of the organization which Long built into the most powerful machine In America, issued a formal statement bitterly denouncing "those •who plotted and inspired" Long's death and declaring "principles cannot be annihilated by murder." "The principles for which Senator 'Long stood will survive through the ages," Allen said. "They will be impervious to gun-fire and gangster jiiethods employed by those who hope to achieve political success through their destructions." He added that there would be no "temporizing" with the "assassins." There was silence today at the $5,000,000 skyscraper capitol Long built even as there was a move to resume normal activities. It was where he Was wounded fatally by an assassin during one of his special sessions to strengthen his "dictatorship" Sunday and it became his monument yesterday. Inquest Monday As a crowd estimated at from 100,000 to 200,000 looked on, Long was buried in front of the capitol yesterday afternoon. While speculation over Louisiana's political future continued, Dr. Thomas B. Bird, East Baton Rouge c'oroner, laid plans to go forward Monday with the oft-delayed inquest into the death of Dr. Carl A. Weiss, Jr., Long's assassin. The coroner returned a simple verdict in Long's death. It read: "Gunshot wound (Homicidal.)" District Attorney John Fred Odom said new witnesses would be heard Monday but it was not known whether any of the bodyguards, whose presence the coroner has been unable to secure, will testify. An indirect denial came from Mrs. Weiss 'today that her husband was involved in any "hotel room plot" to kill Senator Long. At her parents' home in Opelousas, La., shq said she did not believe Dr. Weiss was present at a hotel room conference of politicians, in New Orleans 'at which Long once said plans for killing him had been discussed. Earle J. Christenberry, Long's secretary, had issued a statement saying he believed Weiss drew a "short straw" in an assassin's plot to kill the senator. Clubs' Fate Uncertain Along with the uncertainty over the future of Louisiana's politics, there was similar speculation over what might became of the senator's "share our wealth" clubs over the United States. Talk that they might fall behind Governor Eugene Talmadge of Georgia to support him as a "share our wealth" candidate for president in 1936 was scouted by the Rev. Gerald L. K. Smith, Long's national club organizer. Long's funeral yesterday was a memorable event. Dying Tuesday morning at 4:06 fC. S. T.) of a bullet wound in the abdomen, the senator's body was placed in the magnificent rotunda cf the capitol Wednesday where from 3:15 p. m. that day until 4 p. m. yesterday more than 100,000 filed past the bier to see the fallen leader. With tens of thousands massed on the slate house grounds, bringing lunch to spend the day, sleeping under oak trees and milling about, double lines were formed so that persons could pass on both sides of the coffin simultaneously. By actual count, they moved by at the rate of about 100 per minute. Officers kept them almost running with shouts of "hurry up," "get nlong," and 'step lively," but dlspite that thousands were disappointed when the doors were colsed promptly at 4 p. m. A score or more in the huge crowd were overcome and many were brought into the state house where they were revived. 'Ain't He Pretty' A child which had been lifted by his mother so he could see the body, exclaimed: "Ain't he pretty?" Later in the crowd outside as the casket was being carried to the grave, an aged man hysterically shouted: "I want to throw myself on Huey Long's body." Just as the body was brought to the grave hundreds broke through police lines and rushed forward. There was considerable confusion before officers, aided by 100 men hastily deputized in the crowd, could push them back. With the Rotunda closed to the public at 4 o'clock and the hall cleared, Mrs. Long and the Long children, Miss Rose, Russell and Palmer Reid, came in to view his bcdy for the last time. They followed the coffin as it was carried down the broad terrace of steps to the grave in the sunken garden in front of the capitol. With them was Huey P. Long, Sr., 82-year old father of the senator. 'They were followed by other relatives, a United States senate committee of Long's colleagues, the membership of the Louisiana leg- isalturc, state officinis and others. The funeral services were conducted under an awning by the Rev. Gerald L. K. Smith, national organizer of Long's "share-the- wealth" clubs. Smith Speaks "The lives of great men do not end with the graves," he said. "His spirit shall never rest as Long as hungry bodies cry for food, as long as lean human frames stand naked, as long as homeless wretches haunt this land of plenty. He fell in the line of duty. He died for us." After a short prayer, the body was lowered into the grave at 4:52 p. m. (C. S. T.) the copper lid of the IT'S THE DOBBS Millinery ftews In Smart Headwear!

Thousands of persons lingered far into the night Italy Begins to Grow Scared of England's Guns ROME, Sept. 13 (/P} — England's reinforcing of her Mediterranean and Rfcd sea bases and sending of additional battleships to the Mediterranean is "placing in a state of alarm Italy's position in the Mediterranean and Red sea," the semiofficial Azlone Coloniale said today. The publication said in a front page editorial that this move by England could not but give rise to special measures by Italy. "The moment must come," said the publication, "to demand what rind England is pursuing in the Mediterranean sea—our sea for geographical reasons, for military security and for necessities of provisioning." It said the presence in the Mediterranean of a "never-before seen number of units of the British fleet" constitutes a "political act of undoubted significance." O. K. Gaylor and W. W. McDonald made a business trip to Amarillc yesterday. 11»' KELLOGG PEACE PACT IS INVOKED BY POWERS WASHINGTON, Sept. 13 W)—The United States threw its full moral support into the scales against war today in a stirring, last-minute appeal by Secretary Hull for a peaceful settlement of the threatened Italo-Ethiopian conflict. Proclaiming the peaceful ideals of the American people and citing this government's contributions toward the world's collective efforts •to avert hostilities, Hull called on all signatories of the Kellogg peace pact to observe their solemn obligations and maintain world peace. Although the strong plea—made in the form of a public statement last night—was not a formal Invocation of the peace pact, it was interpreted by international observers here as 1 lacking only the mechanical details and the added weight of other signatories to make it so. World reaction was eagerly awaited today. Emphasizing that Italy and Ethiopia—along with 61 other nations— have pledged themselves to settle their dispute by pacific means, Hull declared that since war would have serious and adverse effects on every other nation they had a right to demand that nations threatening world peace live up to their obligations. "All nations," he said, "have the right to ask that any and, all Issues, feetweeri *hak*M naltoM, be >e- ! storM by Pt61ft« MiSfSS. "Every nation has ft right to asfe that no natlbni subject it and othef nations to the hazards and uneferi tainties that must inevitably accrue to all from resort t6 arms by any two." The American government's cardinal policy in regatd to the Itftlo- Ethiopian controversy, Hull said, is "the preservation of peace." Every other nation, including Italy and Ethiopia, he asserted, is committed by treaties to that same high ideal, "and we earnestly hope that no nations will, in any circumstances, be diverted from this supreme objective." *«•• REVOLT SQUELCHED MEXICO, D.
