CONVENTION HALL, St. Louis, Sept. 26. (/T 1 )—Shouting approval, the national convention of the American Legion today renewed its demand for immediate cash payment of the soldiers' bonus. Delegates and visiting Legionnaires who packed the convention hall roared a unanimous vote in favor of a three paragraph resolution that scored the vetoed Patman bonus inflation' bill. Dwight Sullivan of New York, legislative chairman of that state's department, arguing for the resolution, declared a campaign of vilif- cation had been carried on in congress against Frank N. Belgrano, national commander, in the fight against the bonus. Rep. W. B. McFarland of Texas obtained the floor but also was booed as he recommended that method of financing that payment be left to congress. "You have booed my comrade and your comrade, Wright Patman. Where were you back in 1928 when he was using his own money in an effort to get the bonus payment," he shouted. McFarland said the second section of the adopted resolution provided only for a bond issue "that would give the bankers of this country more than $2,000,000,000." "Don't tie inflation around the Mrs, E Woodcock Dies in Shamrock Mrs. E. Woodccck, 46, died In a Shamrock hospital yesterday afternoon following an Illness of several months.

BUDAPEST, Sept. 26 (#) —Approximately fifty demonstrators, shouting "down with Mussolini and Italy!" stoned the Italian legation, smashing' windows, today. There were no arrests and local newspapers were not permitted to mention the incident. neck of the bonus," shouted Chas. Hallock of Indiana. "Take the road that will get you there. The bonus is popular with all the people. Inflation is not." A resolution opposing executive clemency for Grover C. Bergdoll, draft dodger now residing in Germany, was unanimously adopted soon after the bonus excitement subsided. Another resolution expressing the Legion's "deep regret" at the loss of liver of world war veterans in the recent Florida hurricane was adopted unanimously by a rising vote.

LEAGUE tlm>6i!%Bai t»$6 t) again tomorrow to discuss fimperor Haile Selassie's request that a commission of neutral observers be Sent to the Ethiopian frontiers to follow the situation and to forestall any hil'ltary clashes. The president of the council, fen- rlque Ruiz Gulnazu of Argentina, presented the recommendation for procedure under article XV to "make and publish" a report on the case and recommendations—violations of which, If adopted unanimously, would be considered on act of war against all league members, under article XVI, leading to sanctions. The Italians caused a brief whirl of excitement, just before the council's public meeting was opened, by their walkout. As Anthony Eden of Great Britain, Premier Laval of France, Mixlm Lltvinoff of Russia, and others went to the council chamber to cast their unanimous vote, the Italians met in a compact body. Italians March Out. Included in their number were members of the delegation and other prominent fascists. They strolled up to the bar in the league's glass- roofed lobby, ordered drinks, stood stiffly In a circle, and raised their glpsses high in a toast. Then, after downing the drinks, they ostentatiously marched down the steps and out from the building. As on the occasion of the recent dramatic walkout by Baroii Pompeo Alois!, their chief delegate, from a council meeting, the other delegates and spectators were left in the dark as to the meaning of this new gesture. It was not immediately indicated whether this meant the delegation's final departure or was merely a repetition of the previous gesture by Alois!. A spokesman, for the Italian delegation, however, later explained that the second version was correct— namely, that "Italy will not sit at the same table with Ethiopia." This time, moreover, the act was a little stronger, since the Italians had walked all the way out of the building. Sanctions Foreseen. Some observers said they saw in the speeches of both Anthony Eden of Great Britain and Maxim Litvinoff of Russia an indication that iconversations on the "sanctions" which might be employed against Italy will be vigorously pursued. Eden said in his speech that while the council's report was being drafted, "the governments will have an opportunity to consider whether, and if so how, anything further can be done to safeguard peace." Litvlnoff was deemed to have made an even clearer allusion to sanctions when he said no doubt could be entertained regarding the response his government would give to "any proposals which the council may make for the safeguarding of the, peace of Africa as well us other continents and for maintaining the league covenant." In connection with this angle league officials stated that the council has the power to put Into its recommendations, if it 'wishes, suggestions for economic and financial sanctions and other general measures of restraint against a nation which launches war after rejecting the recommendations. feisfe to what tliel-te'ftfeWe b'f.frAtlons,rB&y Say 1 , Mi %ttH6irt fcfgfeMinf te.ftSit ahtil aftef the boggy path & AcftHs Ababa becomes dry enotlgh to «ig* port Its Mmy." (The leafcue'eotmelt unanimously adopted ft resolution to proceed with the Italic-Ethiopian deliberations under article XV of the league covenant, which automatically makes the aggressor any nation which initiates hostilities before Dec. 4.) These officials continued to declare that nothing can halt II Duce's expedition to East Africa; and denied any fear that Great Britain's fleet will bar its way. Anxiety over the mobilizing of the British fleet subsided somewhat. Officials emphasized that Italy and Britain had assured each other that neither has "aggressive" intentions. ROME, Sept. 26 f/P) —Official Italian sources said today its was "premature" to express Italy's reaction to the reported proposal by the council of the League of Nations that Italy and Ethiopia keep •the peace until Dec. 4. They said Italy now was awaiting a report from the council. Until this report arrives, they said, Italy was not expressing an opinion. These sources saW they were not sure that article XV is the one which the league will envisage and y<!«f ' Aft. tefea w sss tfl- Cfifel «6titM V «t the' Italian newspapers were Unanimous in declaring that, Italy could act outside .the league. They argued that hither- articles XV nor XVA applied in the preseftt circumstances. (Article XV of the covenant provides the council shall endeavor to settle disputes and, if unsuccessful, make a report. • Article XVI warns that if a league member resorts to war in disregard of article Xli, XIII, or XV, it has committed an act of war against all members. Article XII is a promise by all league members they will not resort to war at least until three months after an award by arbitrators.) (The arbitrators in the Italo-Ethi- oplan dispute made their award on Sept. 4 with a finding that neither Italy nor Ethiopia was responsible for a border skirmish last December at Walwal.) ^ MOTHER DENIES OPERATION PERTH AMBOY, N.
