of Secretary Charles Dick, who referred It to Chairman Odell of the New

Thereupon Mr. Odell reported to Secretary Dick, 'who laid all the fnctx'bo

the President's closo friends an advUcrs.

President out of harm's reach. ,
Messrs. Dick and Hnnna laid tho whole matter before the President
shortly before ho departed for Canton. They Instructed Mr. Odell to con
tinue his Investigation and cautioned him to'work with tho utmost secrecy.
To a World reporter last night Mr. Odell admitted that ho and certain
members of the National Committee had discovered a plot to ussassluato
