WW PICK MILITARY Jffl AS PLACE DNAPFRS Country's Toughest Killers, Abductors and Racketeers to Be Confined in Prison in San Francisco Bay After Being Convicted. Washington, Oct. 13 Alcatraz mil itary prison, high on a rocky island in San Francisco Bay, has been selected as the spot where the country's toughest killers, kidnapers and racketeers will be confined" after their conviction in federal courts. Attorney Cummings ' announced today. Negotiations have been completed for its transfer to the department of lustice. The militarv nrisoners will be taken to other institutions. About 600 may .-be confined on Alcatraz is land. Cummings contemplated the im mediate transfer of about 75 prisoners frcm Atlanta prison and the same number from Leavenworth. Habitual criminals cf the type knwn to students of penology as re-cividists, repeating crimes at every opportunity, will be taken to Alcatraz Cummings pointed out that criminals who make troublo in the federal in- rtitrticn. who continually attempt to escape, those not susceptible of re habilitation, those who have influential outside contacts and who make business of a crime will be confined cn the island. George ('Machine Gun") Kelly, just given life for kidnaping, probably will be among the first arrivals at Alcatraz, it wa3 said today, although de partment of justice ofifcials said definite 2!ections had not been made. Kelly, however, comes within th? class of prisoners Cummings said would be sent there. He has made ?. life career of crime and stands no chance of parole cr parden. Cummings said the island is about a mile from the naarest land, located on a precipitous island. The current is swift and escapes are practically impossible. Explaining that about both Atlanta and Leavenworth prisons has arisen a criminal element drawn to keep in contact .with the prisoners, Cummings said it would b-3 impossible to establish such groups about Alcatraz. '. Breaking up of these underworld contacts will have a wholesome influence on prison discipline, Cummings said. ' "Prisoners can't escape and we want them in a place where they know it is hopeless to try to get away," Cummings said.

A boycott of German-made goods and services, as a protest against the Hitler regime, was voted today by the American Federation ; of Labor convention. The report of the Committee on resolutions, considereing three anti-Hitler proposals, provided for the A. F. of L. boycotting "German made goods and German services, this boycott to continue until the German government recognizes the right of the working party of Germany to organize into bona fide, independent trade unions of their own choosing ahd until Germany ceases its repressive policy of persecution of Jewish people." The boycott proposal for the four trillion members of the federation was adopted with only one vote registered m opposition. William Green, president of ' the federation, in speaking for the boycott declared one of the finest trade union movements in the world was destroyed in " a ghastly manner" 'when the German labor movement was put down by Hitler. r He quoted from various reports on German conditions showing how German labor leaders were arrested, persecuted and labor property confiscated. Green also spoke of the anti-Jewish persecution by the Hitler regime. "I can hear the tears of the wives and families of an imprisoned and persecuted ' brothers heartening to our action," shouted Green.- Mathew Woll, chairman of the committee, charged there were Hitler forces within the United States preparing similar "persecution of the Jews." ; ' The strong action of the federation was explained in the adopted report as "of an entirely voluntary nature on the part of our trade union movement and its various divisions and members." "It is strictly economic and non-political, free from governmental influences and does not contemplate or call for support or encouragement of the government of our country or its agencies," the report said. "It must not be directed against any individuals in our own country, regardless of their nationality, race of political beliefs and affiliations."
