The Senator propped himself on a pillow and asserted he still believed in the principles he enunciated in 1916 when he spoke against a bill which would have had Congress warn Americans that they traveled in belligerent vessels at their own risk. At that time, Glass, speaking of his two sons, said that ' < "would rather be pursued through time and eternity by the pitiful apparition of their shattered forms than to see my country dishonored and its flag ator Carter Glass in an 'interview yesterday. The veteran statesman referred to the Reich leader as "this wretched creature—Adolf Hitler." The Si-year old Virginia Democrat declared it was "the sheerest drivel" to say that the President could involve this country in a .foreign conflict. Saying that only Congress has the power to declare, war, Glass added that "the only person who may drag this nation into war is Hitler. * * * his pledged word is not worth a thrip. He is a fervent believer in the immoral machiavellian doctrine of the end justifying the means, however vile the end may be.

Rudy's Rexa " Pharmacy Hotel Hamilton Corner "One of my sons was gassed, and the other was a combatant soldier,'' he remarked. "But a nation without spirit or an elevated soul is as had as a derelict on the seas, and must be devoid of self-respect and unworthy of the respect of other nations. "This country should not be content simply to eat and sleep and go to the movies. That would be a sorry contribution to modern civilization." Ill For Month Glass, who has been ill for a month, said he was "distinctly distressed" at his inability to cast his Senate vote for repeal "'of the abominable embargo act." He expressed sharp disapproval, however, of provisions in the bill which would prohibit American ships from trading with belligerent nations. "Not in my eighty-odd years of ! life," the veteran Virginian said. I "have I known or heard of a more humiliating spectacle than that presented by the legislative body of a great, rich and powerful nation spending months in devising expedients to contravene immemorial requirements of international law through positive fear of a central European assassin. "In .my view, the talk about the President or any other personage in this nation 'dragging the country into war' is the sheerest drivel. The Congress has the sole constitutional right to declare war; the President is not granted the power to either approve or veto the decision of Congress in this respect. So that if we are to be dragged into the war or to stay out, as we undoubtedly should do, it must be by action of the Congress. "The only person on earth who may drag this nation into war is Hitler, and the action of the Senate in passing the 'cash and carry' feature of the embargo bill was, as it seems to me, distinctly in anticipation of Hitler doing this very thing in brutal disregard of international law. "No sane person conceives that either Great Britain or Franca is going to sink any of our merchant vessels, or ruthlessly drown any of our nationals without warning and in shameless violation, of international law. "Nobody has ventured to suggest that Italy or even Russia is capable of'doing anything of this kind. It is only Hitler who is expected to do it, and it is in fear of this wretched creature, dripping with the blood of women and children and non-, combatants, boasting of his ravages of open towns in one of his conquered nations, that we have the shocking spectable of this great nation relinquishing its rights on the high seas and excessively penalizing its own shipping industry for carrying on-its legitimate business. "We are spending approximately a billion dollars to create an elective merchant marine, and now are deliberately proposing to paralyze the industry by preventing it from going to sea except in restricted areas."

NEW YORK, Oct. 30 (#>).—Alice Brady, celebrated star of stage and screen, died Saturday night, only a few days before her 47th birthday. The end came three weeks after her famous producer-father, William A. Brady, rushed her here from Hollywood for treatment for the illnes which she knew for the last twelve montns or more would be fatal. In addition to her father and her step-mother, Actress Grace George, she is survived by a son, Donald Crane. The latter's father is Actor James Lyon Crane from whom Miss Brady was divorced in 1922. Private funeral services will be held in New York Monday and burial will follow in Sleepy Hollow, N. Y. Miss Brady, known always along Broadway as one of the theatre's most courageous and most enthusiastic troupers, continued her stage and screen career as long as she was able to give a performance despite her illness. One of her greatest triumphs came as late as 1938, her performance of Mrs. O'Leary in the motion picture of "In Old Chicago," a performance that won her the'mo- Editor Is Victim Of Heart Attack TEANECK, N. J., Oct. 30 (£>).— Harvey Deuell, 49, managing editor of the New York Daily New*, died of a heart attack Sunday while driving alone through this township. Dr. William J. McKeever of Holy Name Hospital, where Deuell was taken after his car left the road mowed down six cable guardposts and landed right side up at the bottom of a ten-foot embankment said a heart attack was the cause of death. The front of Deuell's car was damaged. There were no signs he had received any bodily injury- Deuell lived in Cornwall, N. Y. He is survived by his widow, the former Peggy Howe. They had no children. CITY IS READY ALICE BRADY tion picture academy award. Miss Brady, whose mother was Rose Rene, a Parisian singer, started out to be an opera singer and did study at the Boston Conservatory of Music. But, after singing the leads in several Gilbert and Sullivan operettas she turned to serious drama. In 1912 she won her first fame as a straight dramatic actress when she played Meg in "Little Women" and this trumph carried her on to stardom in' silent pictures in such films as "Bought and Paid For" and "The Gilded Cage." She returned to the stage in 191S in her most successful part, that of Jennie in "Forever After" and which she played for two solid years. In 1931 she triumphed on the stage again in one of the leading roles of Eugene O'Neill's trilogy, "Mourning Becomes Electra," a sad, tearful role so different from the light, comedy parts with which she had just won new acclaim in talking pictures. Aside from her trumpbs as a stage and screen actress, Miss Brady was'famed in the'theatre for her courage, her keen wit and her ducation. Her last -screen role was with Henry Fonda in "Young Mr. Lincoln" and when she came on to New York after that for medical treatment she said, "perhaps it's for the best. Now I can do a Broadway play again." BLAST IS FATAL TO FIVE YOUTHS Rock Springs, Wyo., Oct. 30 (£>). Five Rock Springs schoolboys were killed Sunday by an explosion in a mining area. Sheriff M. J. Dankowski said he had not determined -what caused the blast. He speculated that the five might have found some dynamite caps or black powder around one of the nearby coal mines. The victims vere so badly torn that identification was possible only through examination of bits of clothing. Those identified were: Gordon Grant, 9; his brother, O'Dea, 11:. David Chamberlain, 7; Donald Cooper, S and Valentine Herrira, 12. The window? of several residences were broken by the explosion. The Sheriff and Coroner J.

Chief 'Marshal :: F. H. Cost, OFFICERS TO DRAFT PLANS National Guard Leaders To Map Program For Camp Training. BALTIMORE^ OcT. 30 (#>).— Maryland's top-ranking national guard officers met today to draft plans which will send guardsmen from ail parts of the state to Camp Ritchie, Md., for a week of cold weather training. Tentatively, the plans call for the 1st Regiment, composed of all the infantry except that in Baltimore City, to start for Camp Ritchie in the Washington county mountains on November 5. The Fifth (Baltimore) regiment and the artillery cannot go until later, by which time the mountain weather will be too cold for the troops. Other units, infantry and artillery are not prepared for training and. will be unable to use Camp Ritchie because of severe weather there. General Reckord said if suitable housing arrangements could be made the rest of the Guard would drill at Camp Meade. General Reckord said Maryland Guardsmen will be permitted to drill for a full week or space it over three week-ends if business duties required it. Army drills, now held iy 2 hours each week, will be doubled under Woodring's orders. Under arrangements being worked out. 3-hour drill periods will be held to avoid two periods weekly. Company I of the First Regiment will have 6u of the new semi-automatic Garand rifles among its equipment-.when it reports for the extra training. The rifles, which only recently were given their first public demonstration by the Regular Army, were allotted the company because of its high-ranking marksmanship, aptain Gray said. Vessel Hits Dock- None Badly Hurt Manchester, Wash., Oct. Her captain dead on the 30 (ff) bridge AUTOIST FINED Lewis List, 48, of Red Lion, Pa., was fined $100 and costs yesterday by Magistrate E. G. Miller on a charge of operating an automobile while under the influence of liquor. He was arrested Saturday night at High.fleld by Sheriff's officers. while George D. Albert will have charge of the division banners and •egalia assigned to club members. the. Black Ball Ferry Crosline crashed into the Manchester dock Sunday, shovinj a dock warehouse into Puget Sound. The bay was littered with merchandise and the ship's superstructure smashed. Several passengers were badly shaken up, but there were no immediate reports of serious injuries. The crash came as the Crosline arrived from Seattle. After turning around, the ferry began backing toward the slip, with Capt. Frank Clements, of Kingston, Wash., alone In the wheelhouse and Mate Robert Vetters on the rear deck guiding the ship with whistle signals. Vetters said he gave the signal to slow down, but there was no answer from the bridge. Under virtually full reverse speed, the ferry smashed into the dock proper, struck a warehouse on top of the dock and shoved the whole structure into the bay, and continued pushing toward the shore. Vetters gave a hurried signal to the engineer to stop the engines and rushed to the wheelhouse to find Captain Clements dead at his post, apparently the victim of a sudden heart attack. With the captain's body still on board, and Vetters in command, the. Crosline returned immediately to Seattle for repairs. Inspecting Of Cars To Start Annual Checking To Extend From November 1 To December 15. Golden Gate Fair Closed On Sunday SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 30 (£>).— Treasure Island was jammed here with thousands of visitors for the ^finale of the Golden Gate .International Exposition, which officials said had. been unable to raise sufficient funds for "succesful reopening" next year. Total paid attendance for the Western World's ' Fair, which opened February IS, reached 10,461,502 at 4 p. m., after ferries and automobiles had poured 112.973 visitors onto the man-made, 400- acre island since 6 a. m. today. While crowds coursed through the gayway and exhibits for last looks at the $50,000,000 exposition, a special fund-raising committee met to decide whether the fair would reopen for four months next year. The annual inspection of motoi vehicles in Maryland will be held from November 1 to December 15 and "there positively will be no extension of time," W. Lee Elgin, Commissioner of Motor Vehicles, announced last night, During the past eleven years there has always been a 15-day ex tension period granted persons who had failed to comply with the law. Mr. Elgin has decided, however, that the extension in the past has meant that a certain group of peo pie put this safety measure off until the very last minute. The Commissioner said there would be approximately 1200 stu tions located throughout the State to make the inspection. "Maryland's highway fatalities rank among the highest in th country," the Commissioner de- lared. "This condition is to be deplored. I cannot impress too strongly upon all owners the importance of a stringent campaign." "I want to warn all motor vehicle owners that there will be no time extension this year and, furthermore, to stress the importance of having this inspection made. Seeks Co-operation "It will be impossible to secure your new license plates unless you can show proof when making application for same that you have fully complied with the inspection. I seek the wholehearted co-operation of every motor vehicle owner in the State to make this campaign an outstanding success." Last year more than 63,000 owners failed to have their automobiles inspected by the time the campaign and an extension period had ended Several thousand of these were summoned into the office of the Commissioner of Motor Vehicles to explain their delinquency. Parts to Be Examined The save-a-life campaign is designed to protect careful motorists Blu, 64 W, Wanhlnrton St. The House of White Diamonds and to force thoughtless ones to| protect themselves, Mr. Elgin said.| "The' examination will concen-f trate upon brakes, lights, horn, f steering mechanism, windshield I wipers, mirrors, tires and wind- \ shields," he added. "In other words, those parts which are essential to safe driving." SUSTAINS INJURY Robert S. Spalding, 4000 block Georgia avenue, N. W., Washington, D.

For N. <£ W. dollars are community dollars. To its thousands of employees in six states, the Norfolk and Western pays approximately $32,000,000 annually in wages and salaries. These railroad workers spend their earnings In their home towns—your communities—for food, rent, clothing, automobiles, radios, and other necessities and luxuries of life. They deposit their savings in local banks; invest in local real estate; contribute to local charities: pay local taxes. And the Norfolk and Western itself, is a big customer in the hundreds of communities along its lines. This railroad spends an average of SI8.000,000 a year on a shopping list of 50,000 different items, from pencils to freight cars, from steak to steel rails, from lumber to stationery, from coal to crossties, from tooth* picks to paint, from advertising to apples, and so on and so on* Day in and day out, year after year, these millions of railroad dollars are pouring steadily into rural sections, towns and cities along the railroad—promoting prosperity, creating jobs in industry, business and agriculture. Indeed, N. & W. purchases- and payrolls are no mer» "shot in the arm" to briefly quicken the eco nomic pulse, but a sound, vital investment in the welfare and progress of the territory the railroad traverses. The Norfolk and Western Railway and the Norfolk and Western Family are proud to have such an important part in promoting prosperity in communities along their lines. The railroad and its employees are worthy of your support and consideration; their tremendous purchasing power is worthy of preservation. NORFOLK and WESTERN RAILWAY
