The radical socialist organ, Ere Nbuvelle, too a, strong stand against the government's measure • to shorten labor's hours. The 40-hour week, Ere Nouvelle said, would put production costs so high Prance would lose all her foreign markets. Additional unemployment will result, the organ predicted. . The newspaper's criticism was one -of the first authoritative indications of a vigorous fight when the socialist leader's bills are called for debate in the chamber of deputies Thursday. In add.ition to the 40-hour week, paid annual vacations, collective bargaining contracts, and restoration of s'ome civjl service pension reductions .are included in the labor proposals,' wnio'h Blum introduced yesterday.

Clyde Tlngley announced today a "solution appears about near" in the year-old disappearance mystery of Mr. and Mrs. George Lorlus and Mr. and Mrs. Albert Hcbcrer, Illinois tourists who dropped from sight near Vaughn, N. M., In May, 1935. The governor said two men were held in jail for questioning, and a diver was en route from Houston, Texas, to aid state police who, are dragging a little lake near Roswell, N. M., for the bodies. The governor said a tip from an unnamed informant indicated all four were killed near Vaughn "and told what happened" to the jewelry and valuable diamond rings of the missing tourists. "We've checked out everything told us," said, the governor, "and now we are concentrating on finding the bodies." The governor said his informant's story related that the tourists stopped near Vaughn to fix a tire and that two men, one of them intoxicated, approached them with an offer of aid. The drunken man, the governor said he was informed, insulted one of the women and struck her husband fatally over the head when he remonstrated. The others were killed later, the story went on, because they refused to promise; not to reveal the slaying. Then all four "bodies were bound with fence wire and dumped into the lake, said the informant. Governor Tingley declined to reveal the names of the men in jail or to say where they were held.

Bertrand Snell of New York appealed ;o the republican convention today to sink its differences and unite 'to restore the government to the ?eop!e." The party is not contending against the democratic party as such, he told the thousands in the auditorium, but "it offers to lead America against an unconstitutional dictatorship—yes, the arrogant individualism of Franklin Delano Roosevelt.'' Mentioning no candidate for the presidential nomination, he predicted victory in November and said 'we shall need in executive positions the services of constitutional democrats and republicans alike." "Reckless Squandering" In a burning prelude to the address tonight by former President Herbert Hoover, the republican leader of the house imputed betrayal of platform pledges to the new deal. He charged . "reckless 'squandering," retardation of recovery and violation of constitutional liberties under "this demoralizing reign of incompetence." "I hear today America's earnest prayer of deliverance," he said. Republicanism he praissd as a "great heritage—a political force which personifies the deeply rooted American instinct for law and order, for true social security and the square deal, for a practical and workable system of government."

E. Hall, rancnman, came out winner over E. L. Stratton by a decisive margin of nearly two- thirds of the votes cast—18 out of 28—in the seventh election con- tost between the two since 1933. Each of the previous six elections was contested' and eventually thrown out by the higher courts. The seventh election was held yesterday. Every eligible voter in the precinct went to the polls in an attempt to end the recurring friction, which sharply divided this West Texas county into two camps. Residents feared even the seven- the election migHt not be the last. Stratton challenged five of ;he votes. Yesterday's voting started with a spirited argument over personnel of the election board. Outside a typical ranchhouse, where the voting took place, Hall stood with a new lawbook in his hands. He referred to it frequently, as did his opponent, Stratton, who stood in the doorway with another srand new law book. Finally, election officials were chosen, with Sheriff Hardin Ross passing on their fitness to serve. Technicalities figured in the previous election contests. The district court decided in Hall's favor each time, and each time the appellate court reversed the lower court and ordered a new election. The voting westerday gave Hall three "victories" and Stratton three. The other election ended in a tie.
