SEPTEMBER TRADE FIGURES ARE GOOD Britain Best Customer —Fa- vorable U. S. Balance Is $9,853,581. Tiie United Kingdom supplanted Canada a* America’s best customer in September, purchasing $34,589,023 in American good* as against $28,001,653 for the Dominion. Both the export figures, however, showed sharp declines from the same month last year, when the United King dom took $57,845,532 and Canada $51.- 978.595 in American shipments. Commerce Department reports today gave the United States a favorable trade balance, for September of $9,853,581 and showed trade with Asiatic countries holding up better than those on other continents. Imports from Great Britain were sl3 - 379,213 in September compared with $17,017,363 and from Canada $21,927,- 618, against $32,522,475. Russian Trade Hold* Up. Shipments to Russia continued to hold up well, amounting to $10,500,292 against $4,923,093. Soviet trade repre sentatives said, however, this did not mean that Russia was buying more in the United States than heretofore, but rather that orders for heavy machinery given a year or more ago were Just now being filled. In another report cabled to the Com merce Department today, business con ditions in Great Britain were described as considerably improved since the Na tional government victory at the polls on October 27. Besides acting as a strong stimulant to business confidence, the department was advised the outcome of the elec tion had Immediate favorable reaction in many lines of industrial activities. "Early extension of important tariffs as one result of the election is con sidered probable by business opinion,” said the report drafted by Commercial Attache William L. Cooper, at London. Sterling Decline Help*. The report came 24 hours after the department had received world-wide telegraphic information of a noticeable upward leap in business from many parts of the globe. Depreciation of sterling with the re duction in gold prices of exports also has resulted in a stimulation of British production, according to Cooper. He added that the view is rather widely held in British trade circles that this increase in activity may be sustained, despite increased prices in terms of pounds sterling of imported raw ma terials. The report showed registered unem ployment aggregated 2.738,000. which represents a decrease of 74.000 from a month ago, though a net increase of 539.000. as compared with the situation in October, 1930.

CITIZENS DEMAND BETTER DRAINAGE Columbia Park Association to Ask Relief of “Flood Con ditions” in That Area. Determination to carry to high offl- ; cials the campaign for correction of i "flood conditions" said to exist In the j Columbia Park district after every heavy rain was expressed by the cit izens’ association of that territory at Its regular meeting in the George Truesdell School last night. Insufficient drainage facilities were I held responsible for the flooding of cellars and streets in the area between Fifth and Seventh, Ingraham and Gal latin streets, in the opinion of the resi dents at the meeting. It was decided to communicate with the District Com- ; missioners by letter, through a personal call by E. F. Neagle, president of the i association, and direct conference with the office of the engineer commissioner. The association resolved to make every effort to halt the construction of a Washington Gas Light Co. gas tank at Ridge road and the Baltimore «fc Ohio tracks, asserting that the presence of such an object would be an In fringement on a residential district. It was resolved not to designate a representative to the North Washington 1 Citizens' Joint Committee on the ■ grounds that this committee if main tained will constitute a "little federa tion” within the present Federation of Citizens’ Associations. Belief was ex pressed that the functions of the North ! Washington Committee could be prop erly handled through the usual channel of reference to the city-wide federa tion A membership drive also was an nounced at the session last night, prizes for those obtaining the most new mem bers to be awarded at the next meet ing.

SABATINI BLASTS MYTHS OF HISTORY William Tell Never Lived. “Iron Mask” Erroneous, Audience Told. The necessity of studying history } with a critical mind was emphasized last night by Rafael Sabatinl, whose l modem historical novels have done much toward preserving the colorful tales of the past. Speaking under auspices of the Com munity Institue. before a capacity crowd in Central High School, Saba tinl cited several outstanding instances of historical distortion of fact. William Tell, who according to his tory shot an apple from his son's head to win his freedom, never lived, de spite the fact three chapels and numer ous statues have been erected In his honor In Switzerland, Sabatinl de clared. Tell Myth Exploded. A creature of someone's imagination. Tell has become a Swiss national hero. Sabatini said, and Is the outstanding example in support of the assertion that, history ts composed of fiction in no small degree. The famous man 1n the Iron mask also was shorn of his mystery by the novelist. The mask was of velvet, not Iron, he said, and the man who wore It was an Italian governor who had swindled Louis the Fourteenth. The King's henchmen kidnaped the gov ernor and Imprisoned him in France. There is strong reason to believe the mask was worn to hide some disfigure ment. Sabatini said, and not because the prisoner was the twin brother of the King and the rightful ruler of France, a belief widely held In some circles. Guest of Lido Club. After the lecture Sabatini was guest of honor of the Lido Civic Club at a reception and dance in the Mayflower Hotel. The Italian embassy was represented at the receptiqp by Count Carlo Soardi and Signor Adriano Monaco, secretaries, and Cav. dl Girolamo, chancellor. Among other guests were Representa tives Vincent L. Palmlsano of Maryland and Fiorello La Guardia of New York, District Commissioner Herbert B. Crosby and District Attorney Leo A. Rover.
