Angelo Herndon to Speak Here July 15th Complete in all its horrible de tails ,a twelve-foot replica of the cage used by chain-gang prison ers will arrive here on Monday, July 15th. The cage, built on a truck, is being taken on a coast to-eoast tour by Angelo Herndon, 22 year-old Negro whose sentence of 18 to 20 years on the Georgia chain-gang the United States Supreme Court recently upheld. Herndon, for whom a stay of eecution has been secured until the fall, when the attorneys of the International Labor Defense will press for a re-hearing, before the highest court, will speak in Omaha, Monday night at 8 o’clock.’ A permit is being re quested from the City Commis sioners for the use of Grant Street, just west of 24th, for the meeting, between 7:30 and 10:00 o’clock, p. m. If request is refused, will hold meeting at 24th, and Blondo Streets. The chain-gang display will be shown at the meeting. In case of rain the meeting will be held at the Workers Center, 2404 Parker Street, at 8 o’clock Monday even ing. The chain-gang cage, which is 12 feet long, seven feet wide and seven feet high, is two-thirds the actual size of the cages in which Georgia prisoners spend their nights. It was built under the supervsiion of John L. Spivak, whose exposure of Georgia chain gangs rocked the country a few years ago. The cage resembles a huge cir cus wagon. It is enclosed by latticed iron bars. There are three-decker tiers of bunks cov ered with thin mattresses of bur lap stuffed with straw. To illustrate the horrors of the chain-gang volunteers will don the striped uniforms of convicts and take the part of prisoners. | In addition to the cage, there will be on display models of the instruments of torture commonly used on the Georgia chain-gang There will be “stocks,’’ in which the prisoner lies three inches from the ground, his whole weight suspended from his wrists and ankles. Herndon, who faces these tor tures if he goes fO the chain-gang, was convicted in Atlanta in 1933, of “inciting to insurrection.’’ The statute on which he was indicted is based on a law of pre-Civil War days, designed to crush slave up risings. The state asked the death penalty but the jury recommend ed 18 to 20 years on the chain gang. Ht<rndon’s attorneys, employed by the International Labor Defen se, then appealed to the United States Supreme Court, which re fused by a six to threee decision to reverse sentence, on the basis of a technicality. A stay of exe cution was obtained, and a re hearing will be pressed. Mean while Herndon is out on bond of $15,000 cash raised by popular subscription. A drive is now be ing made to gain two million sig natures to a petition to Governor Eugene Talmadge of Georgia, asking Herndon’s freedom and asking also the repeal of the ‘slave insurrection’’ law.

See Special League , Meet On Ethiopia (Continued from Page One) have developed when Prof. Gaston Jeze, legal adviser to the Ethiopian government, asserted that Ualual, scene of the first major frontier inci dent, was in Ethiopian territory. The Italian representatives entered a strong protest against such testi mony, asserting that the commission was empowered to consider only the causes of incidents. They insisted they would hear no more evidence from Prof. Jeze- When the Ethiopian adviser persisted in giving his views, the session ended. A proposal to call in a neutral fifth member to resolve the deadlock had been discussed, but the Italian repre sentatives would not agree to such a step The conciliation commission, under ' the instruction of the League of Na- | tioas council, held preliminary meet ings at Milan, Italy, in (June and re- ■ convened in this suburb of The Hague June 25. Predict Italy to Quit League If Session Called. Geneva, July 10.—'Italian circles predicted today that Italy will resign from the League of Nations if a spe cial session of that body is called on the Italo-Ethiopian conflict. A spe cial session appears likely because of | the breakdown in the conciliation | commission proceedings. A resolution adopted by the league council May 25 provided a special ses sion of the council should be called July 25 if the Italo-Ethiopian arbitra tors failed to reach an agreement and failed to appoint a fifth arbitrator to act as umpire. Jt also provided for a council ses sion August 25, at all events, if the dispute had not been settled by that time Today the Italo-Ethiopian concil iation commission, meeting at Sche- j veningen, Netherlands, decided to sus pend its sessions indefinitely. The dispute between Italy and the African empire already has gravely affected the work of economic and fi nancial experts who are meeting here privately to study the feasibility of imposing economic and financial pen- j alties on nations endangering peace through the repudiations of interna tional treaties. Italy Believes Its Path Is Clear. Rome, |July 11,—Italy believed to night a path from Rome to Addis Ababa was clear/ Official circles said there was scarcely a possibility of English in tervention; there is no doubt of France’s friendly neutrality, and the S United States has just declared its | neutrality. Germany is now friendly, they said, and Russia will be friendly be cause of France. The only foreign nation England may possibly per suade to her point of view was be lieved here to be Japaji, which has growing commercial interests in Ethiopia, but Japan apparently has her hands full with the Chinese and Manchoukuon situations. There' remained only the League of Nations, of which Benito Musso lini has no fear. Before that assemb ly Italy does not intend to remain on the defensive, but will take the of fensive with charges that Ethiopia violated the conditions under which she was permitted to enter, and should be reduced to the rank of a mandate. If the league should attempt to con demn Italy, official circles disclosed, j II Duce would not have the slightest; hesitation about leaving Geneva. Meanwhile Italy continued military preparations against Abyssinia to- j day by calling to the colors all sub officers and soldiers classified as specialists or technicians and belong ing to the classes of 1909 and 1910.
