Bridges scornfully repudiated a “peace pact” reached at San Francisco last night by three committees, representing the waterfront employers’ association, the district I.L.A., and the San Francisco local.

Phillips, Oakland, rul ing on a closely contested vote, favored a motion for adjournment after a bitter day of wrangling. The passage of the motion automatically left Phillips in office as president, and retained other officers and directors. Directors of the group immediately indicated that another meeting would be called after the May 5 primary, in the hope of electing a new slate of officers. Police Called The adjournment came after hours of fighting oratory and nearbrawling which caused police to come to the aid of hurriedly deputized sergeants at arms. George Klor, a Phillips supporter from San Francisco, became involved in a one-punch battle with William Stark and Jack D. Ryan, “bodyguards” which Hal Williams, also of San Francisco, admitted bringing to the convention. Williams said he brought the pair to “protect” Phillips from an asserted plot to “frame” him and cause his ouster. Order Restored Jack Waluker, state sergeant at arms, called police as the fight progressed. Order eventually was restored. The uproar started when a southern California delegation favoring E. C. Hammond for presidency of the group attempted to gain seats in the meeting. They finally were admitted. Tonight Hammond protested “unfairness” of the group’s nominating committee, which assertedly “pack- j ed” a proposed ticket of 10 officers and 31 directors, with onlv one officer and two directors from Los Angeles. G.O.P. Split Seen Tbe fight was said to have mirror- ; Million ed a split throughout state G.OP. ranks. Phillips was said to be a candidate on the list of “unpledged and uninstructed” Republican delegates in the May 5 presidential primary. The Hammond forces were reported supporting a delegation pledged to Gov. Alf M. Landon. Resolutions were presented by the resolutions committee providing that the group should not endorse any Republican presidential candidate until after the primaries, and that the president of the young Republicans shall take no public political action without consent of two-thirds of the board of directors. Another resolution provided that no young Republican officer shall be a political job holder.

'Dead1 Speak Again * * * 4c Miners In Ca ve-in Talk To Rescuers Copyright. 1936, by United Press. MOOSE RIVER. N.S., April 19.. ..— (U.E) — The voices of three men who were given up for dead days ago came faintly from the recesses of an abandoned gold male today and told rescuers who have labored frantically in their behalf for seven days that they were “all right ” Communication was established through a five-inch pipe driven 140 feet below the surface. Food, brandy, flashlights, and messages of cheer were lowered and efforts to dig a shaft through hundreds of tons of rock to rescue the men were redoubled.

Mexicali Fire Controlled With Calexico Aid; Seven Stores, Buildings Razed MEXICALI. Mex., April 19—OlE) —One of the largest fires in the history of this border town, which razed seven stores and small buildings in the Chinese district, and for a time threatened the entire town, was brought under control early today. The Calexico fire department, rushed here after local equipment failed to halt the blaze, succeeded in extinguishing the flames, after a favorable shift in wind averted tremendous property damage. The fire had been blazing unchecked for a half hour before Mexicali fire equipment reached the scene. Youth and Church To Be Topic for Forom Speech Answering affirmatively the question, ‘‘Is Youth Pair to the Church?” j James McGiffin will address the School of Religion forum here at 4:15 this afternoon in the Bowne room of Mudd Memorial hall. Acting as chairman of the discussion will be Prof. Robert Taylor, professor of biblical education, 54 Injured in Jerusalem Riot JERUSALEM, April 19 — (EE) — Nine were killed and 54 injured today in riots between Jews and Arabs at Jaffa and Telaviv which precipitated racial tension throughout Palestine. Riots at both Telaviv and Jaffa reached such serious proportions after several days of tumult that police opened fire several times before order was restored. The government published an order to council empowering Lieut. Gen. A. G. Wauchope, British high commissioner for Palestine, to make emergency regulations operative. A curfew was proclaimed at Jaffa and Telaviv. Streets are to be deserted after 7 p.m. nightly. Casualties today included seven Jews and two Arabs killed. Eleven Jews were wounded seriously and 28 others suffered lesser injuries. One Arab was critically hurt and 14 others suffered slight wounds. Scenes of panic were created when Arabs invaded the Jewish city of Telaviv. They attacked the Jews, who fled in terror, and charged auto busses carrying Jews. Three busses were burned. Compatriots Cheer Art Groman, captain of the Trojan varsity debate team, became a hero in the eyes of the thousands who inflict themselves upon society and its digestion—after-dinner speakers—when he was named winner of the after-dinner speaking contest of the annual Pacific Forensic league tournament held at U.C.L.A. Friday night. After having won the extemporaneous speaking contest the night before, Groman came back on an empty stomach to earn the second championship. After-din-ner speaking under such conditions is practically unheard of, making Groman a .martyr to his following. “It’s treason, that’s what it is,” exclaimed an annoyed Groman after being informed of his victory. “It’s all right to win the trophy, but I’d have done much better with a six-course dinner and demitasse under my belt.” May Day Leaders Offer Mooney Bail Dollars Proffered If Convict flowed to Head Union Parade Italians Smash Right Flank of Ethiopian Army Five Days Fighting Brings Success to Force of General Graziani Many Are Killed in Battle ‘Hell on Wheels’ Motorized Columns Push Across Edge of Desert Bulletin ROME, Monday, April 20 —(U.R) —Ethiopian Crown Prince Asfao Wosan was enroute to Dessye today presumably to contact Marshal Pietro Badoglio, commander-in-chief of Italy’s East African armies, reports from Dessye said. It was reported that the crown prince, Emperor Haile Selassie’s eldest son, is ready to negotiate peace with Italy. La Guardia, in Bay City, Seeks Sleep SAN FRANCISCO. April 19 — (U.F) — Mayor Fiorello La Guardia of New York city, here for a regional meeting of the U. S. conference of mayors, was interested in only one phase of western hospitality tonight — that which permits a visitor to sleep to heart’s content. La Guardia arrived here today by plane. He said he had enjoyed little or no sleep during a 13-hour hop from Chicago. Other mayors scheduled to attend the conference included Mayor Joe Carson of Portland, Ore, and Mayor T.

Frank Merriam of California, offering to post $1,-000,000 cash bail for Tom Mooney if the governor will permit Mooney to head the May day parade here. A similar offer last year was rejected. Amicus Host, executive secretary of the committee, issued this statement: “The constituent organizations represented on this committee have together pledged to put up a million dollars in cash bail to permit Tom Mooney to come to New York May 1. We have wired Governor Merriam accordingly. Last year this offer was made and refused. “Considering the fact that Mooney is now in San Francisco renewing his efforts before the courts for freedom, and that every bit of evidence presented by him indicates that he should be free soon anyway, I can see no reason why this request should be refused. This is no idle offer. The unions and other organizations making up this committee are well able to back it up.” Blanc Will Lead Managerial Club Members of Ball and Chain elected Hal Blanc vice-president of that organization at their last meeting held at the Phi Kappa Psi house. Blanc, manager of varsity basketball and member of Blue Key, will have only a short time to serve in his new office as he is a senior. Other business of the meeting concerned awards for sophomore managers. The organization is trying to establish awards for sophomore managers, who at present, get no acknowledgement of their services except probable promotion to position of being a junior manager. In this connection, the group is also trying to make the position of manager more important. Copyright, 1936, by United Press. ROME. April 19 — (UJR) — After five days of fierce fighting which cost Italy the heaviest casualties of her East African campaign, Gen. Rodolpho Grazini today smashed the right flank of the Dedjazmach Nasibu’s Ethiopian army. His “hell on wheels” motorized columns pushed on across the fringes of the Ogaden desert toward Harrar and Jijiga, most formidable Ethiopian strongholds, j In an official communique transmitted through field headquarters of Marshal Pietro Badoglio. Graziani admitted 10 officers killed or wounded, three flying ofiicers wounded and several hundred Italian troops out of action. Planes Shot Down Two Italian airplanes were shot down, he said, but they succeeded in comming to earth behind Italian lines. Several thousand Ethiopians lie dead on the field. Most of the Italian losses were among Lybian and Somali troops. Graziani’s victory gives him po-session of vital water holes on the southern front and puts his forces in position for a frontal assault or an encircling movement against Harrar and Jigjiga. Dispatches from the southern front show that in the fighting at Giana Gobo ford Graziani crushed Nasibu’s right wing, the major Ethiopian defense before Harrar and Jigjiga. Lybians Take Offense The Lybians first attacked the Ethiopians in the gorges of the Gorrah Wadi, 30 miles southwest of Sassah Baneh. The fiercest battle of the campaign occurred at the Giani Gobo ford where the Ethiopian divisional commander, Dedjazmach A b e b e Damtu, was reported to have fallen with 3,000 of his men.

Cantor Makes Award ♦ + * Portland Boy Scout Succeeds Lewis NEW YORK, April 19 — (HE)— Eddie Cantor made his second award tonight of a $5,000 scholarship for the best essay by a boy on how to keep the United States out of war.

Lloyd Lewis of Plattsburg, Mo., won that contest, but after he came to New York and had seen the sights at Cantor’s expense, it was learned that he had plagiarized his essay. The result was that he was sent back to Plattsburg, his dream of a college education shattered.
