L OPENING CONVENTION Stormy Debate Seen On Suspensions, Labor Peace, War. CINCINNATI, O., Oct. 2, (£>)-— The American Federation of Labor pened its 59th convention today amid forecasts of stormy debates n. such issues as labor peace, hreatened suspension of two of its Idest unions, and a proposal that he United States offer to bring •bout peace in war-torn Europe. The executive council, in its an- .ual report issued on the eve of the onvention, made the whole topic t war and neutrality a definite ubject for convention action, by .dvocatiug the role of an interna- ional peacemaker for this nation. The council's report avoided any tatement on President Roosevelt's Tograrn. for revising the neutrality act and employing a system of cash and carry" for sale abroad of American, munitions and planes. Some union leaders, however, voiced the hope the convention would support the complete program of he administration. The council report contained strong criticism of totalitarian gov- rnments and called on the convention to declare itself "emphatically and decisively 1 ' against "autocracy in government, let it be Nazi, Fascist or Communist." The administration was urged to follow a "judicious policy" on neutrality to avoid involvement in war. The 14-carat square-cut diamond, set in platinum and shown below, is valued at $25,000. Mrs. Robert Stranahan, of Toledo, Ohio, went to a New York City beauty shop for a manicure, left it in a tray which was dumped into the trash can. A truck picked up the garbage, and radio • police stopped it before the stuff was dumped into a scow for disposal at sea. Two hours of search by the policemen resulted in recovery of the ring. PHILATELIC TRUCK DRAWING CROWDS TJ. S. PostofS.ce officials say that the philatelic truck, which will pay Hagerstown a visit ealy in November, has been visited by upwards of 300,000 people since it left Washington on May 15 last. More-than 150,000 copies of the junior stamp booklet have been sold. Postmaster Thomas Simpson arranged last week for the truck to pay Hagerstown. a one-day visit. He extends a cordial invitation to the public to inspect the truck and its display of specimens of all the TJ. S. postal issues. In all probability the truck will be .parked.during the visit in front or in the rear of the local post- office.

They are marching day and night, division after division, from the interior of Russia. The army looked as if it were three-fourths Asiatic and one-fourth European. It was western in its motorized heavy artillrey, in the standardization of equipment and plentiful modern anti-tank guns. As Russia penetrates what once was Poland, the inhabitants of this region are wearing hits of red cloth in button holes or pinned to their sleeves to signify allegiance to the new order. Small improvised red flags made of any sort of material and cut to a point hang from houses. Red banners with pictures of Stalin and signs in Russian reading "Welcome" are stretched across the streets for the red army to march under. Food is scarce and most stores are closed but some open for a few hours daily. Long lines wait before them. In order to get one meal for 15 persons at Bereza Kartuzka, the red army had to send an automobile through surrounding villages within a radius of six miles. Sausage was requisitioned from one village, tomatoes in another, bread another, and cheese in the fifth while 15 waited. Hotels also are closed. I slept in private homes with three or four snoring persons in the room. I spent one night in the library of the Polish district governor's home among encyclopedias, books on Pil- sudski and stacks of translations of American novels. Between here and the old Russian frontier there is no destruction beyond ruined railway stations and airports, bombed by the German fliers. This is the only section of Poland whore trains are running. Brest-Litovsk itself was shot up in fighting around the Citadel for i several days before the Poles surrendered. The airport is pock-marked with bomb holes and 20 burned Polish planes lie by a caved-in hangar. BILL'S REPEAL DESIGNEDTO KEEPJSOUT (Continued from Paj^e 1) discrimination in favor of Germany, because it prevents Great Britain which is surrounded by water from purchasing in our market arms, ammunition and implements of war, whilst Germany, being land power, has access to arms, am munition and implements of war that may be manufactured in Rus sia, Italy, Rumania, Yugoslavia and other countries." Pittman said under the existin law Germany could get American goods through such neutral coun tries as Russia, Italy and Rumania Pittman said many people believ ed that a prohibition, against the sale ot American armaments to bel ligerents "will entirely eliminat us from any part in the destruction of human lives during Avar." "How mistaken and unCounded i this conception," he said. "We ar participating in mass murder b> the- Japanese in China today." The Senator contended tha Japan now was purchasing ra-\ materials in the United States an using them to manufacture arm for the war in China. Discussing effects of the legisla t.ion on the American Merchant Marine, Pittman agreed that tha prohibition against the use of American ships in trade with belligerents would be "injurious to some extent." He said American vessels could pick up additional shipping: in the Pacific and the South Atlantic, however, and added: "No matter what the effect may be on our Merchant Marine * * * No patriotic citizen will oppose making such sacrifice and if a great sacrifice is made it is better than our government as a government should assure.such losses that that our merchant vessels should be permitted to engage in commerce with belligerents. "This commerce must and shall be-discontinued during the war." SMALL FRY IN RING ON TRIAL Many Of Them Widows Of Victims Of Poison Ring Face Trial. PHILADELPHIA, Oct. 2, (£>).— The lesser lights in the insurance murder cabal start their parade to the stand today—many of them widows of victims. Already 11 defendants have either been convicted or pleaded guilty, including a trio dubbed as the "big shots" by investigators who estimate 50 to 100 persons were poisoned or slain by other means in the last decade. Thejbig three are the Peirillos, Herman and Cousin Paul, and Morris Bolber, self-styled witch doctor. None was able to- cope with the tight-spun evidence unfolded by the commonwealth. During this month and next 12 of the 23 persons indicted on homicide charges will go on trial. A middle-aged fortune teller, Mrs. Providenza Miccichi, goes on trial today charged with plotting with Dominick Casseti to slay his wife, Jennie, by "seasoning" her food with a lethal "witch's potion." Cas- seti has pleaded guilty to the murder and with the others awaits sentence. U. S, May Yield Little America May Abandon It To Britain And Take Title To Other Land. ' WASHINGTON, Oct. 2 (£>).—The United States may abandon "Little America" in the Antarctic to Brit- sh claims and take- title instead to erritory lying further east. Officials of the forthcoming gov- rnment expedition to the South >ole disclosed this possibility today when they removed their headquarters from Washington to Boson. There- they will complete preparations for the trip. The party will embark from the Boston navy yard early in November and reach South Polar waters early next January. Although the flagship-North Star, aider command of Rear Admiral Richard E. Byrd, will proceed di- ectly to the explorer's old base at jittle America, a permanent c.\mp may be established east of this British-claimed territory, the officials said, between 70 degrees and 150 degrees west longitude. That would put the American flag "over an. area never before claimed by any nation, they explained, .and would avoid possible conflict with rival British operations. A definitely defined American pos session at the South Pole, experts say, would make possible accurate weather information for aviation and naval operations in the South Pacific. This would be of value to the United States in event of a wai and would make possible weathei forecasts .for the new air mail ser vice between the "United States Australia and New Zealand. ISLAND AGAIN SETTING FOR TWIN SLAYING (Continued from Page 1) partment had learned the couple killed yesterday were neighbors whose children played together. He said Casper had taken Mrs. Werner shopping. Several purchases apparently made by the woman, were scattered around the death car. The police chief fixed the time of the shooting at 2 a. m. yesterday, said both bodies were clothed and reported a medical examination had not determined whether Mrs. Werner was assaulted criminally. Deputy County Physician David A. Fluck said Casper, an auto me- :hanic, was killed by a shot fired 'roni close range into the right side of his head and neck. Mrs. Werner, Fluck said, had part of her right arm blown off and apparently had been runiug away from the car. Death was caused, he said, by a blunt instrument, which crushed' her skull. State police, city and county detectives, familiar with the setting from their investigation of the November tragedy involving Mary My> tovich and Vincenzo Tonzello. joined township police in the investigation. Anti-Trust Drive Faces Many Tests More Than 400 Cases Face Supreme Court, Convening Today. WASHINGTON, Oct. 2 (&)— The government's anti-trust drive is facing a series of major tests with the opening today of a new Supreme Court term. Awaiting action by the court were anti-trust proceedings against the American Medical Association, 12 midwest oil companies and a group of milk dealers in the Chicago area. They were charged with activities in restraint of trade, in violation of the Sherman Act. The government was unsuccessful in lower courts. These were among more than 400 cases that accumulated since the court adjourned for the summer on June 5. A number of disputes involving interpretation of the National Labor Relations Act also are pending, but the law itself has been held constitutional. A test case of the constitutionality of the Federal Wage-Hour Act is expected to be filed sometime during the eight-month term. The program for the opening session consisted of the admission of attorneys to practice before the tribunal-and the receipt of motions. The court will announce next Monday which cases it has decided to review. Oral arguments also will begin then. All the justices were reported to be in excellent health, except 73- year-old Pierce Butler. He has been seriously ill for several weeks with a bladder ailment. There has been some speculation that he might retire, but he has given no indication that he plans to take this action. Friends of Justice McReynolds, also 77, report that he plans to continue on the court for iihis term at east. He and Justice Butler are he two remaining members cle- cribed by administration men as conservative/' WONT QUIT SAY Take Up Challenge Of Churchill As 250,000 More Called To Colors LONDON, Oct. 2, (/P). — Great Britain strengthened herself today for hostilities on the World War scale, apparently intending to ignore any Nazi-Communist peace offer. The first official reaction to indications that Adolf Hitler would propose through a neutral power that the war be called off on a basis of the partition of Poland came from fiery Winston, Churchill, British First Lord of the Admiralty. Churchill told Britons last night "we are going on to the end." Prime Minister Chamberlain was expected to amplify the government's stand in a message to the House of Commons today on the, German-Soviet Russian treaty of amity. Chamberlain will give the House his fifth war review at another session, tomorrow. But no further statement from the war cabinet was expected before the British government learns the details of Hitler's plan. Meanwhile, King George's first proclamation under the armed forces act approved by parliament at the outbreak of war, raised Britain's men called to the colors almost to a potential 500,000. The King called up lor service about 250,000 additional soldiers, summoning all youths between th« ages of 20 and 22 to register for military service at a date to be set later. About 240,000 youths who rea'ched the age of 20 before last June 3 already had been registered under the conscription introduced before the war started. ST.

SOVIETS SEEK LATVIAN PACT (Continued from Pag* 1) Kremlin. Presentation of this plan, informed quarters expected, would he accompanied by demands upon Rumania for return of Bessarabia, the rich oil region which Russia lost after the World War. The Russian program, diplomatic circles said, calls for an agreement with Turkey designed to strengthen the Soviet position in the Black Sea. Moscow, they declared, seek to prevent Turkey from reaching any agreement with France nnd Britain that would leave the Darclanel les, entrance to the Black Sea, open to Allied warships in event of con flict with the Soviet. This situation, it was believed was the subject of a four-hour con ferencc last night at the Kremlir between Turkish Foreign Ministei Sukru Saracoglu, Russian Premier Foreign Commissar Vyacheslaf Molotoff and Josephin Stalin. Meanwhile, reports which neith er the Russian nor Rumanian capi tals would confirm said Rumania^ Foreign Minister Grigore Gafenci would arrive here within the nex day or two. It was expected Russia wouU make his visit the occasion for pre scnting a Balkan peace plan a well as for demanding return o Bessarabia.

Among these was the speedy liner Cap Norte which shipping men said would serve admirably as an armed raider if she possessed or obtained armaments. She sailed more than a week ago from Recife, heavily loaded with fuel and accompanied to two German, freighters, likewise carrying fuel and foodstuffs. The Cap Norte, a 13,615-ton passenger boat is one of the fastest liners in the South Atlantic service. HAGERSTOWN WOMEN Are Wise For selling their Old Gold at SAUM'S Jewelry Store.
