Oct. 27— (dT.P> —Six thousand delegates to the Townsend old age pension convention cheered their mild, soft-spoken leader wildly today when he warned at a post-session of fhe conclave that the United States “faces universal prosperity or universal disaster” The applause reached its height when Dr. F. E. Townsend urged his adherents to go to the polls at the next election and bring about “an orderly change in our economic affairs that will result in established prosperity for all." The method bv which it is hoped to reach this objective, a method which has been drummed steadily into the ears of delegates since they gathered here four days ago, and which has proved attractive to a reputed 18.030.0D0 followers, consists of payment to all over 60 of $200 per month. Dr. Townsend outlined the rudiments of the plan and traced economic factors which he said led to the stock market- crash of 1929.

ROME, Oct. 27.—(U.E)—Italian armies on northern and southern fronts Will hurl themselves forward in » smashing assault upon Ethiopian defenses tomorrow on the 13th anniversary of the Fascist march on Rome, authorities forecast tonight. Officials said Italian troops were rested after their preliminary gains and the rains which delayed Gen. Rodolfo Grazani’s southern columns have stopped. League Meets Thursday Italians virtually have lost hope of a satisfactory solution of the diplomatic stalemate with Great Britain before the league meets Thursday to begin enforcement of economic sanctions. The moment for a shattering drive to realize Ethiopian objectives by force of arms may appropriately coincide with the blackshirts’ holiday, it is believed. Eve of the anniversary found Fascist Italy engaged in the greatest undertaking since groups of impatient youths wearing black shirts massed outside the walls of Rome ready to advance in three columns to capture ths government for Benito Mussolini, the erstwhile Socialist editor from Milan. Italy Keyed Up AH Italy was keyed tonight to the War and the anniversary. The nation worked all through Sunday in preparation for a complete holiday celebration tomorrow. Premier Mussolini personally will lead tomorrow’s celebration. He spent today at the Venice palace studying latest reports from ths diplomatic and war fronts and conferring with party leaders regarding tomorrow’s plans. All day long squadrons of Caproni bombers and pursuit planes—some of the latter capable of 400 kilometers (250 miles) an hour—roared across the city to put the nation in a warlike frame of mind. Flames Whip Over County Men Get Equipment, Food As They Struggle To Save Grass Lands By United Press. Dying winds tonight gave an army of 6,000 weary fire fighters first real hope of making headway against ravages of brush blazes in Malibu canyon that for five days have defied efforts of county and state fire control. Reports from Fire Dispatcher S. H. Welch said men, recruited from sheriff’s offices, Civilian Conservation camps, forestry details and communities, were “holding their own.” “It is not possible to tell whether the fire definitely will be brought under control,” Welch reported, “but we have gained sufficient advantage so that there is no serious menace now if the wind does not rise again.” Flames Lick Mountains Persisting flames, licking through the saw-tooth Santa Monica mountains, left a charred waste of more than 100,030 acres of brush land and timber, razed ranches and mountain lodges in half a dozen areas and menaced the swanky Malibu lake and Seminole hot springs regions. Blown on a hot desert wind, the flames swept early today across the Ventura county line. Additional equipment and food was sent to men waging a desperate battle to save rich grasslands and settlements in Dume canyon. Wind Rises A sudden rise in wind, forestry men said, would send the blaze whipping over Los Flores canyon, into hitherto untouched territory, with possibility of another serious outbreak similar to that which razed mountain lodges and beach dwellings along the edge of the Santa Monica mountains last week. Sightseeing motorists thronged highways, where square miles of land had been laid waste, a barren stretch of black desolation spreading from Malibu beach into the heart of the mountains.

C. one of the few colleges in the country to have a member of the consular service as a member of its student body. Serving his country in the capacity of vice-consul in charge of diplomatic relations throughout southern CaUfomia, Navarro is one of the youngest attaches in the Ecuadorean foreign service. The handsome, brown-haired, olive-skinned young man, now 25 years of age, came to the United States in 1932 to compete in the Olympic games. His event was the 400 meter run, for which he held the record in Ecuador. However, political complications and strife in his native land kept Navarro from entering the games, a bitter pill for the athlete to swallow. Not long afterward, Navarro received an offer to accept the position of vice-consul, but refused, saying that he had not proved himself worthy of the job. Later he returned to Ecuador and, in competition with other applicants, won the right to represent the small South American republic. In a small office in Hollywood, Navarro carries on his business. Among his most prized possessions are certificates from the president of Ecuador and from President Franklin D. Roosevelt, officially recognizing him as a member of the diplomatic corps. When George came to North America he knew no English. Today his st)23ch, although hesitant, is far superior to that of the average college student. He is majoring in engineering ar.d international relations, with a smattering of political science. His ambition is to continue in the diplomatic service, although he intends to prepare himself for a non-political life if the occasion arises. American school life Was far different from that of Ecuador, Navarro points out. For instance, he often became very annoyed when professors assigned extra-heavy loads of home work. He said that South American students would have risen as one to threaten the instructor with dire consequences when the lessons were too hard, whereas the Americans “sit back and take it.” “The United States and her people are wonderful,” Navarro seated. “I have grown to love them and to appreciate the citizens’ qualities of warmth and friendship. I hope that my consular service will keep me in ths United States always.” The cultured young vice-consul plans to begin intensive training immediately for the 1936 Olympic games in Berlin, where he will represent his country, unless unexpected political troubles again hamper him. Quill Club Contest To End October 31 Campus writers were reminded of the closing dates of Quill club’s annual membership contest which will end on the last day of the month by Fred Nichols, Quill president. Manuscripts are now being accepted in the Knglish office, and contestants are asked to submit them as early as possible. Rules for the contest, as announced by Nichols, are: manuscripts must be typed on standard size paper. Submitted under a nom de plume, the manuscripts must be accompanied by a sealed envelope which contains the correct name, address, and phone number of the applicant. “As competition in the contest Is always keen, applicants are advised to submit as many different types of creative work as possible,” the president explained. From time to time Quill, a professional creative writers’ club, brings prominent men in the world of letters to address members on the practical way of breaking into print. Authors nresenled last year included Irvin S. Cobb, and Hamlin Garland. Mel Ruick To Play At Engineers Ball Tickets Placed on Sale for Friday Night Dance At Country Club Music by Mel Ruick and his recording orchestra, who have provided the themes for many Fox motion pictures, will furnish the incentive for dancing at the engineers’ all-university ball at the California Country club next Friday evening, announced Jack Graves, chairman of music, last night. “Ruick is the son of a United States district attorney who lost his first case when he pleaded that Mel become an engineer instead of a musician,” Graves said. “The engineers are going to show him what he missed at their dance next Friday.’ The engineers’ dance win be an informal affair, with corsages banned. the committee announced. Tickets are priced at $1.00, and may be purchased from members of the Engineering council and from Miss Marie Poetker, cashier in the Student Union.
