TWO JAPANESE W AR VESSELS REPORTED SUNK IN YANGTZE Defenders’ Fire Drives U. S. Destroyer From Guard Post—Pacific Blockade Declared by Tokio. BACKGROUND— Undeclared Chinese-Japanese war begun as result of clash of armed forces near Peiping July 7 and spread to Shanghai after killing of two Japanese there. Japan rushed marines and bluejackets to the Chinese metropolis to protect Japanese nationals and property there, while Chinese threw large bodies of provincial and national troops around the city. Bombs falling within International Settlement 11 days ago killed 1.403 Chinese and- foreigners, including three Americans. Fourth American, sailor on the U. S. S.

SHANGHAI, August 25 (fP).—The lives of hundreds of Japanese soldiers were sacrificed today in a mass effort to land desperately needed reinforcements and wipe out the Chinese armies of Shanghai. The city’s wily defenders took heavy toll of Japanese landing parties, thwarting a Japanese plan to land 55,000 troops near Woosung and storm Shanghai’s defenses from the rear. Woosung is at the confluence of the Whangpoo and Yangtze downriver 12 miles from the heart of Shanghai. Closer in to the foreign areas, large Chinese land forces with drew from the North Station area, near Hongkew, where they have tried for days to push Japanese bluejackets back into the Whangpoo. The action, however, was described by the Chinese as “merely a tactical change in the front line.” An estimated 42,000 Japanese still were on their ships and the ranks of some that reached shore were riddled. The Chinese allowed the new Japanese troops to tttfH what seemed to be second defense lines, then exploded hidden mines and virtually wiped out the invaders with sheets of fire from secret machine gun nests. Casualties Are Extremely Heavy. Both sides admitted that casualties in the Woosung sector, Where the battle front abruptly shifted, were extremely heavy. The foreign residents of the heart of Shanghai were sur rounded by the devastation of 13 days of war—$125,000,000 worth of ruined property and at least 100,000 war dead and wounded. Unconfirmed reports said Japanese troops had entered and v nn v*a /I a C ATti a! aa<%a<«1a4a aoa fr^l> _ . i ^ _ j • a. a — v»*v wxvv wiiuuiuw iivi v.. iiuo tuuouiaic, au,iacciit iu Japan’s own consulate, was closed last week when war engulfed the area. Chinese asserted that two Japanese warships were sunk off Tsungming Island today m the Yangtze River, Shanghai’s waterway to the sea; that 500 of a Japanese landing party drowned at one point alone. A Chinese artillery bombardment on the water front north of Shanghai, near where the Yangtze and Whangpoo Rivers meet, drove the United States destroyer Parrott from where it was pro tecting Texas Oil Co. plants off Gough Island. A Japanese Army threat to attack Shanghai’s Nantao area, in the Chinese city south of the International Settlement, threw Nantao’s 200,000* inhabitants into turmoil. Thousands struggled past blazing areas, set aflame by Japanese Incendiary bombs, to seek refuge in the French concession. The terrified natives found their way barred because the con cession already is choked with Chinese refugees. Japanese commanders declared the Chinese resistance in in dustrial Pootung, across the river from Nantao, was cracking and civilians were fleeing across the Whangpoo into the native area. If the Chinese retreat in that direction, they said, the Japanese forces will pursue them. | Great fires raged in three sections of Shanghai, north, east and south of the International Settlement. They were believed to have added countless more victims to the war toll. Japan’s third fleet, now in Chinese waters, stretched a blockade along 800 miles of the coast against all Chinese shipping from a point north of here to the extreme south of China. Blockade in Force Immediately. Vice Admiral Kiyoshi Hasegawa, commander-in-chief of the third fleet, proclaimed the blockade immediately in force. He exempted all except Chinese vessels. The blockade embraces the lower Nangtze. Clearing skies, after weeks of torrential rains, plunged North ern Hopeh and Ohahar Provinces into a new burst of warfare. There, dispatches said the Chinese were thrown again on the defensive. Japanese forces launched attacks southward from Tientsin and Peiping and northward against the Nankow Pass and Kalgan, Great Wall strongholds guarding the gateway to Mongolia. gjggB.. incir swniKUi was uuimcicu uy an-' i^fcraft and heavy armaments freed from |Hthe mud, but the mire of the two prov- i ^Hnces still were obstacles to both sides. | The fiercest fighting was at Nan Hkow Pass.

WELLES PARLEYS ON CHINA LIKELY Undersecretary of State Going to Europe on “Vacation.” BY CONSTANTINE BROWN. The departure of Undersecretary of State Sumner Welles on a vacation to France and Great Britain is con sidered in diplomatic quarters as an important political move on the part of the administration. Mr. Welles had decided to go on a vacation to Europe several months ago. The troubled international situ ation, and especially the disturbing developments in the Far East, com pelled him to put off his departure several times. He left this morning on the Queen Mary with the avowed intention of spending a couple of weeks in England and France. Yesterday morning Mr. Welles called on President Roosevelt to say good-by. Will See Statesmen. Washington diplomats, however, be lieve the Undersecretary of State, a trusted adviser of the President in international affairs, is not going to France and Great Britain merely to see the Paris Exposition and the An necy Lake. He will make the usual “courtesy calls” on the leading British and French statesmen and will discuss with them the question of the Far East, which has become one of the most important and troublesome ques tions for the foreign offices in London, Washington and Paris. A decided stiffening of the attitude of the administration in the Sino Japanese conflict was noticeable in the last few days. This attitude coincides with a crystallisation of public opinion against Japanese meth ods in the Far East. Secretary Cordell Hull’s statement to the press on Monday night urging China and Japan to come to terms on the basis of the principles enun ciated by the Secretary of State on < See-WELLES^ Page A-5J RAIN WILL CONTINUE THROUGH TOMORROW Low Temperature Also Forecast for Capital—Tropical Storm North of Virgin Islands. Washington housewives can keep the extra blankets out and the umbrella stand near the door because the wet, cool spell is going to continue through tomorrow, according to the weather man. Cloudy skies with occasional rain today and tomorrow and the low temperatures which today evoked an order to local police to wear their warm jackets were predicted. The temperature at 10 o’clock this morning was 66, which was also the average for yesterday, when the high point was 68 and the low 64. Meanwhile vessels north of the Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico were warned of a small tropical disturbance moving northwestward at about 12 miles per hour. The squall, said to be centered about 80 miles north of St. Martin at 1 a.m. today, was declared to be of small diameter and small intensity, but may cause a few sea sick moments to the less hardy Dis trict Naval Reserves on a training cruise in those waters. ~ -1 SAH FALLS; REBELS RULE ALL NORTHWEST SPAIN City’s Civil Guards Revolt, Hastening Surrender to Franco’s Men. PRESIDENT OF BASQUES ARRIVES ON FRENCH SOIL Hundreds of Shells Pound Into Madrid, Killing 10 in New Bombardment. BACKGROUND— Drive upon Santander begun nearly two weeks ago by forces of Gen. Francisco Franco to wipe out last vestige of Loyalist re • sistance in North Spain and to re lease insurgent troops employed there for use against Madrid, Span ish capital, which has withstood siege since November. In Eastern Spain rebel forces are attempting to sever Madrid-Valencia com munications and thus complete en circlement of the capital. Ey the Associated Press. HENDAYE. Franco-Spanish fron tier, August 25 —A flying column of Insurgent Generalissimo Francisco Franco's motorized cavalry drove into fallen Santander today to plant the red and gold Spanish insurgent ban ner on public buildings. Fifteen thousand government troops were captured. Entry of the conquering troops came only a matter of minutes after the insurgent high command an nounced that government officials had surrendered the city—the last impor tant government seaport stronghold on the northwest Spanish coast. Re volt of Santander's civil guards and other insurgent sympathizers hastened the capitulation. President Jose Antonio de Aguirre and several other members of the Basque government who found San tander a refuge after the fall of Bilbao arrived safely at Bayonne, France, just before insurgent advance guards entered the city. British Ship Aids Refugees. The British flotilla leader, Keith, was evacuating a number of refugees, including several remaining members of the Basque government, to St. Jean de Luz, France. A column of Navarre Requetes (Carlists) flooded into Torrelavega during the night and early morning and closed Barreda, Junction point on the only road from Santander to ward the last government refuge in Northern 8pain, Oviedo Province. Torrelavega lies 11 miles southwest of Santander and Barreda 11 miles west. The “Navarras” found the impor tant manufacturing and potash min ing city defenseless and promptly moved in behind three lumbering tanks. Franco’s communique said huge stocks of oil were seized in Torre lavega. Franco Warns Neutrals. SALAMANCA, Spain, August 25 l/P'.—Gen. Francisco Franco, the in surgent chieftain, in a blunt com munique apparently aimed at Great Britain and other neutral powers, threatened today to continue his campaign against ships aiding the Madrid-Valencia government. “Nationals anxious about the pres tige of their flags must be most in terested to see that the seas are cleared of this band of undesirables,’’ the communique said. “All projects for neutrality are use less if these nations passively leave the door open for traffic in arms and munitions by allowing their flags to be used by persons lacking all scruples.’’ Madrid Shelled Again. MADRID, August 25 (A3).—Madrile tios cleared away the debris of a brief Out deadly artillery bombardment to day while the newspaper El Socialists, Drgan of the Socialist party, called for 1 Spanish government diplomatic "of fensive” abroad. Ten persons were reported killed and 25 wounded in last night’s half hour shelling, the first to Jilt the be leaguered city for 18 days. Hundreds of projectiles crashed into the center of Madrid. Government guns returned the insurgents’ fire. Meanwhile, it was announced that the University of Madrid, the campus Df which has been one of the major battlegrounds of the 13-month-old civil war, would reopen in October, provisionally merged with the Univer sities of Valencia, Barcelona and Murcia. $700,000 IN DAMAGES DEMANDED OF UNIONS Seven Women Charge Expulsion Offlcial Answers They Were Only Suspended. By the Associated Press. ATLANTA August 25.—Suits asking $700,000 in damages because of ex pulsion from a C. I.

BACKGROUND— To meet budgetary requirements of current fiscal year new and higher taxes were levied on District citizens Meanwhile, department heads compiled tentative budgets for next fiscal year. First budget came from School Board, asking SO per cent increase over current appropriations. Board of Public Welfare asked for 63 per cent in crease. BY DON S. WARREN. Asserting that District fluids pro vided in tile past for promotion of public health have been “woefully in adequate,” Health Offioer George C. Ruhland today asked the Commis sioners to approve 1939 estimates amounting to $3,416,655, an increase of 54 per cent over sums granted the department for the present fiscal year. Planning a wider attack on disease all along the line, Dr. Ruhland pro posed construction of a $450,000 medi cal ward building at Gallinge. Hos pital, construction of the second of a series of health centers, or polyclinics, and the erection of staff buildings at the Glenn Dale, Md., tuberculosis sanatoria.

Dr. Ruh land protested that the District mor tality rates are deplorable and argued the cause was a lack of sufficient health funds. He emphasized in justification for his budget proposals that in the past 10 years the per capita expenditure for health in the District has never exceeded $1.09, and that for the pres ent fiscal year it amounts to 97 cents (See HEALTH, Page A-3.)

Officers Sent To End Riot on Bahamas Isle 14 Forced to Risk Death to Flee Terror. By the Associated Press. NASSAU, Bahamas, August 25—A force of five constables, sent from Nassau in response to a call for help, sought today to restore peace to the usually placid tropical isle of Great Inagua, scene of six days of rioting. The constabulary arrived yesterday aboard the steamer Priscilla to restore the King's law to the island where rioting cost one life, extensive prop erty damage and forced 14 persoiK, including the British commissioner, to flee to Cuba in a balky launch. The constables, their commandant, • commissioner and a wireless oper ator, were dispatched last Thursday when a wireless call for help was in terrupted. With communications cut ofT, it was not known until yesterday when Arthur Symonette, Haitian Con

sul, boarded the Royal Netherlands steamer Medea some distance from the island, and sent a message, did government officials learn the trouble. 14 BRAVE DEATH AT SEA. Flee Terror of Natives on Great Inagua Island. MAYARI, Cuba, August 25 t/P>.—The leader of 14 sea-buffeted fugitives irom ureal magua island related today how they escaped the terror of a native uprising only to run the risk of death by hunger and thirst on the open sea. Ironically, the group was suspected by rural Cuban police of being revo lutionists themselves because of the arms they brought to land with them in a disabled motor launch. The 14 were ordered to trial today at Santiago on charges of unlawful possession of war materials. All were said to be United States citizens. Their leader, Dr. Dudley Arthur, was described as an official of the British Bahamas government. They reached Cuba yesterday after flve terrifying days at sea without food or water. The group carried a small arsenal, police said, including two tear gas guns and liquid for charging them, several rifles, shotguns and pistols and 500 cartridges. Dr. Arthur, a physician and head of the group, told a reporter they had fled the island after he ordered the arrest of a native accused of mis treating a child. Natives blamed Joseph and Douglas Erickson, also among the fugitives, for the arrest order, Dr. Arthur said, and went to their home to kill them. They did kill an Erickson employe, he related, and then started rioting over the island to wipe out all "Yankees.” MM IK 191 Indiana Senator Calls Ex Governor a “Natural” for Presidential Race. BACKGROUND— Speculation has been rife for months about whether President Roosevelt would run for third term, but he has declined direct reply to inquiries. Indiana’s McNutt, World War veteran and former national com mander of American Legion, some omnths ago was sent to Philip pines as commissioner. By the Associatec Press. Senator Minton, Democrat, of In diana predicted today that Paul V. McNutt, American high commissioner to the Philippines, will be nominated by the Democrats in 1940 to succeed President Roosevelt. The Indiana Senator, a New Deal stalwart, who Is close both to the President and McNutt, said he did not believe Mr. Roosevelt would run for a third term. Minton's eyes flashed as he enthused in an interview over the former In diana Governor’s availability, not only from the standpoint of his record, but also from a purely political stand point. ’’He’s a natural,” he said. “He gave Indiana the best administration In diana ever had. He put more legis lation on the books of Indiana for labor and the farmer than anybody ever did in the history of the State and he demonstrated his executive ability. "He has acquaintances all over the United States. There isn’t a cross road that doesn’t have some one that knows him. ‘He’s a great campaigner, too. There isn’t a better one in the country. "His views are substantially the views of the New Deal.” * McNutt has been frequently dis cussed as a Democratic possibility in 1940. But Minton was the first of his close associates to "nominate" him so boldly. When President Roosevelt sent Mc Nutt to the Philippines, instead of giving the former American Legion commander a place in the cabinet, as it had been reported he would, there was speculation that the Chief Execu tive wanted to remove him from the political spotlight. But McNutt’s friends expect that he will return to this country well in advance of the 1940 political cam paign. VAN NUYS ASSENTS. Hoostor Senator Joins Minton in Nom inating McNutt. INDIANAPOLIS', August 25 ’JP).— Senator Frederick van Nuys, Indiana’s senior Senator, joined Senator Sher man Minton today in indorsing Paul V. McNutt,'high commissioner to the Philippines, for the Democratic nomi nation for President in 1940. Van Nuys said he, like Minton, was convinced "from conferences and other sources of information,” that President Roosevelt would not be a candidate for a third term. "Paul McNutt would make an ideal candidate and an ideal President, and I would be glad to ‘go right down the line’ with him in 1940,” Van Nuys said. "As my Senate colleague has pointed out, Paul gave Indiana a great ad ministration. He would be a perfect candidate from a geographical stand point and he has the training and ability to make a great President.” Indiana Democrats viewed the de velopments as additional evidence the presidential boom for their former Governor is gaining Impetus. ENGINEER DROWNED Body In Canal Identified as Everett D. Kern. The body of a man identified as Everett Deane Kern, 40, marine engi neer for the Maritime Commission and former naval officer, was found In the Chesapeake Canal in the 4400 block of Canal road early this after noon.

BACKGROUND— One of bitterest fights in Nation’s political history was precipitated last February by President Roose velt when he proposed reorganiza tion of Federal judiciary. Sugges tion centered around changes in Supreme Court. Finally, Congress passed compro mise bill, which does not affect Supreme Court. President Roosevelt today an nounced his approval of the so-called small-courts bill, but severely criti cized its lack of provision for impor tant judicial reform objectives he had sought from Congress. After signing the bill last night Mr. Roosevelt prepared a statement for the press, which said that while the measure contains several provi sions “which are definitely a step in the right direction,” it “leaves entirely untouched any method of relieving the burden now imposed on the Supreme Court.” He declared the bill “registers a moderate and limited advance into a field which calls for further and more complete exploration.” Other Criticism of Bill. Besides omitting to relieve the Su preme Court’s Durden, the President said, the bill is lacking in the follow ing things: “It provides no increase in the per sonnel of the lower courts—an in crease confessedly necessary. “It provides no effective means of assigning district judges to pressure areas. 'It sets up no flexible machinery, with methods of administration read ily adaptible to needs as they arise. “It leaves untouched the crowded condition of the dockets in our lower PAiirfs “It provides lor no flow of new blood to any of the Federal benches. “It does not touch the problem of aged and infirm judges who fail to take advantage of the opportunity afforded them to resign or retire on full pay. Commends Some Features. The President asserted all of these are objectives “which are of necessity a part of any complete and rounded plan for the reform of judicial processes.” On the other hand, the President stated, the bill contains a number ot commendable reforms which should be of great value in improving the work of the courts. He pointed out that the measure prorides that the Attorney General shall be given notice of constitutional questions involved in private litigation and accords the Government the right “to defend the constitutionality of the law of the land." Text of Statement. The text of the President’s state ment follows: "On the fifth day of February I brought to the attention of the Con gress the necessity of a careful and thorough-going reformation of our judicial processes and submitted ten tative plans outlining essential objec tives. These objectives, recognized as de sirable by most of our citizens, were predicated on the necessities of a great and growing Nation. Many of us have viewed with concern the widening chasm between the people on the one side and the courts and the bar on the other—a chasm recognized and deplored by many of our ablest and most enlightened judges and lawyers. It can hardly be doubted that our peo ple are restive under the slow and uncertain processes of the law. “I spoke, therefore, for an upbuild ing prooess, not only to preserve the independence and integrity of the ju diciary, but to reinforce It and strengthen It as an essential and hon ored part of our institutions. “In effect, I spoke in behalf of the American people in their desire for in creased respect for, and confidence in, speedy and fundamental justice as represented by the Federal courts. "We have wanted to bring to an end a trying period during which it has seemed that a veritable conspiracy existed on the part of many of the most gifted members of the legal pro fession to take advantage of the tech nicalities of the law and the conserv atism of the courts to render meas ures of social and economic reform sterile or abortive. Because repre sentative government, in order to suc ceed, must act through the processes of law, it is necessary for it to attain a high degree of co-operation among its three co-ordinate branches. “In the light of the above, there fore, let us examine H. R. 2260, which io » mu aueciuaung certain changes In judicial procedure. It contains meritorious provisions and registers a moderate and limited advance into a Held which calls for further and more complete exploration.
