Several armies of varying size are
moving today in different sections
of China. What were supposed
to be northern troops to the num
ber of 80,000 in the neighborhood
of Wuhu, up the Yangtse river
from Nanking are not northerners
but contingents of the, second

40th divisions of the nationalists
(Cantonese) heretofore regarded
as neutral or uncertain as between
the Hankow and Nanking govern
ments. Most of these, troops are pro
ceeding down the river to Nanking
but it has not been determined
whether they are on their way to
join or attack Chiang Kai-Shek,
commander of the moderate sec
tion of the Cantonese.
Issues Final Appeal
Chiang has issued a last call on
Hankow, urging those in favor of
the Nanking government to join
him without - delay, and develop

MEDFORD, April 27. (AP)
While state anc Gefense attorneys
are busily preparing for the open
ing of the trial of Hugh DeAutre
raont next Monday, the defendant,
one of three brothers charged with
murder: in connection with a mail
train holdup in which four men
were killed, .spends his time quiet
ly in the Jackson county jail at
Jacksonville, near here.
DeAutremont, who was 19 years
of age when the holdup occurred
three and a half years ago. has
told some of his experiences while
state, government and railroad de
tectives were 'searching for him
and' his brothers, Roy ami Ray,
after the. holdup.
In Arkansas he obtained work
on. a farm, owned by. a man named
Adams. There was a largo mud
hole in front of the farm, said
DeAutremont, and part of his
daily work was to fill this mud
hole each morning with water
from a hose.
It was then his job to take a
team and haul out any motor tour
ist who got stuck in the mire. He
said he was kept quite busy at
this, charging each tourist $3 for
the services of himself and team.
"I got sort of tired doing this,
and one day I was standing there
with the. team when I saw a flivver
coming down the road towards
the mud hole," said DeAutremont.
"I waved to the driver to stop.
He was an army officer in uniform.
I warned him of the hole, and vol
unteered to take the wheel and
drive, him safely through the mud
hole. He answered saying "Sure,
jump in I just paid three bucks
to get hauled out of another hole

Beveridge, whose time since re
tirement from the United .States:
senate in 1911 after 12 years ot
service had been divided between
politics and literary endeavor,
had not been in rugged health for
some time. It was not until April
13, upon returning from a visit tot
Chicago that he called Dr. Williams
Thayer of Johns Hopkins univers-j
ity, and Dr. Charles P. Emersonj
Indianapolis. They prescribed
complete quiet and relaxation for
heart symptoms which they re
garded as alarming but not criti
cal. Obeying orders despite a
restless, energetic nature that
chafed at inactivity, Beveridgej
convalesced rapidly and today's;
relapse came as a surprise. He
was 64 years old.
Beveridge's talents inclined ia
three directions. In writing
statesmanship and oratory,- ho
gained rank alongside - the great
men of each field. Major political
success came when he was com
paratively young and in. the sen
ate, he displayed a grasp of do
mestic and international problems
that, for two decades gave him
the status of a sage1 in the field if
political economy.
He was writing the "Life of Lin-t
coin," with the hope that it would
be comparable with or even supe-
friorno his "Lite of John Marsh4
all," which in 1916 had brought
him pre-eminence as a biographer.
Excellence in oratory was the first
talent in his complex makeup to
assert itself in the swift ascent
from a humble station to national
