"[ think that is correct to the extent
that there is or may be a general
obligation imposed upon the American
government by the negotiations," said
He added that in his letter to the
PritiMi Ambassador he explicitly stated
that the papers related only to "ten?
tative proposals or suggestions" and
not to any agreement. He explained
that the negotiations were suspended
before there was any agreement.
No Agreement Signed
"None of the papers or documents
fan be construed as commitments, as
'here was no agreement drawn up and

Senator Reed said the fact3 sur?

Chinese Report Loss of 23
Aboard Burned Schooner
Gulf Coast Officials Hold 20
Celestials on Suspicion of
Odd Smuggling Plot
PENSACOLA, Fla., July 21.?Twenty
Chinese, castaways from the two-mast?
ed schooner Viola, which burned to-day
off the gulf coast near West Day, were
arrested to-night by Bay County au?
thorities. The Chinese declared twenty
three men were lost in the burning of
the schooner, a small craft sixty feet
long and equipped with a small gasoline
motor, but the authorities were not in?
clined to believe the statement.
The Chinese also claimed to be
bound for Chicago by way of Pen
sacola and are alleged to have offered
the authorities $800 to allow four of
their number to escape.
The officers of the Viola had not
been located to-night, and the craft is
unknown in these waters, although
federal officials say that they have
been expecting attempted smuggling
operations and have been watching for
a small vessel answering the descrip?
tion of the Viola. ? '
Nine Provinces of

Confirmation of Reports of
25 Million Facing Famine
Received at Headquarters
of Anti-Bolsheviki Here
The official Bolshevik newspaper,
Pravds? of Miacow, under date of June
26, telling of the terrible sufferings of
the Russian people, says that "as a re
suit of the drought and the crop fail?
ure, famine is raging among a popula?
tion numbering about twenty-five mil?
This announcement, given out by A.
J. Sack, director of the Russian infor?
mation bureau in the United States,
who represents the Russian anti-Bol?
shevik forces in this country, confirms
recent cable dispatches, which have
described the widespread famine con?
ditions prevailing in Russia.
The famine territory, Mr. Sack said,
embraces the provinces of Ufa, Tza
ritzn, Saratov, Samara. Simbirsk, Viat
ka, Perm, Kazan and the northern
Caucasus, from which the population is
fleeing in terror.
"The situation," he continued, "is
made more catastrophical by the fact
that, due to the destruction of trans?
port and the shrinkage in area under
agricultural cultivation, the other re?
gions of Russia are unable to help
those?affected by the famine. The offi?
cial bolshevik Izvestia of Moscow, No.

figures gathered by the Central Statis?

vated in 1920 was sixty-one million des
siatines. Before the revolution, how?
ever, the total area cultivated was over
ninety million dessiatines, about 270
million acres. The shrinkage in culti?

"Before the war the crop yield
amounted to about four and one-half
billion poods, a pood equaling app'rox
i imately thirty-six pounds. Under
average harvest conditions there should
bo obtained from the curtailed area
2,940 million poods of grain. Actually,
however, as a result of the crop failure
2.199 million poods were gathered, so
that the shortage, as compared with an
average harvest, amounts to 775 mil?
lion poods. The curtailment of the
cultivated area and the shortage of the
grain crops have gone so far as to

Compromise Is Planned
Objections to Norris Meas?

Against Granting Bonus
From The Tribune's Waehinaton Bureau
WASHINGTON, July 21.?- Adminis?
tration forces in the Senate, led by
Senator Lodge, majority leader, began
a movement to-day to defeat the Norris
farm export financing corporation bill.
Senator Lodge in a vigorous speech
opposed the passage of the bill, which
calls for a $100,000,000 Federal corpora?
tion and would put the government
into the business of handling surplus
farm products for export. Support of
the bill comes from the agricultural
"bloc," including both Southern and
Outcome of the matter, it was said
to-night, probably will be a compro?
mise which will give the War Finance
Corporation the financing of exports of
Senator Lodge spoke to-day with
the backing of the Administration, it
was generally understood. Secretai*y
of Commerce Hoover recently opposed
the. bill before the Senate Agricultural
Committee. President Harding made
it known to Senator Norris when he
recently visited the Capitol on the sol?
diers' bonus bill that he did not favor
the Norris bill, but the Nebraska Sen?
ator was unwilling to sidetrack it.
Senator Lodge held the Norris bill
would not be of permanent help to
the farmers. He declared it would
"destroy the Liberty bonds of the
United States" and undermine the
financial stability of the government
and the nation.
"It is the sort of legislation," he
said, "that leads to national insol?
vency and emulation of the Russian

mit the issue of bonds up to $1,100,

Senator Lodge held this would ruin
"A bill of this financial magnitude,"
said Senator Lodge, "requires an opin?
ion from the financial head of the gov?
ernment. I realize that the farmers
are in desperate straits, and that it is
proposed by this bill to create a mar?
ket for them. But no amount of money
Congress can appropriate will create
a market. What will give you a mar?

powers of the nations abroad. Govern?

"The depression in various lines of
business is not confined to the farm
products of the South and West. In?
dustrial activities are _ severely af?

states are shut down."
Senator Lodge referred to the fact
the soldiers' bonus bill had been re?
turned to committee because of the
menace to financial stability involved
in it and thought it inconsistent with
that action to pass the Norris bill.

Somebody has been painting adver?

At 12:26 p. m. the airmen, having

"A cold material fact has been de?

that the battleship can be sunk by the

this affair. The onlv thing to be-done
is to attack the problem accordingly.
"I have not changed my mind at all
as to the result of these bombing

that extraordinary precautions had to
be taken to meet the menace. That's

New Battleship Arrives
At Yard Unannounced
Shipbuilders Insist on Deliver?
ing Maryland, Though Not
Special Dispatch to The. Tribune.
NORFOLK, Va., July 21.?Without
authorization from the Navy Depart?
ment the battleship Maryland was sent
to the navy yard to-day by her builders,
the Newport News Shipbuilding and
Dry Dock Company, arriving at noon.
Plans of the navy yard officials were
thrown topsy-turvy. A board of naval
officers sent from the navy yard to in?
spect the Maryland at Newport News
last Monday reported that she was not
ready for acceptance by the government
and it was expected that the ship would
not bo brought over until next Monday,
The delay apparently did not suit the
plans of the Newport News Company
They had a ship costing $26,000,000 on
their hands which they considered reads
for delivery. The cost of maintaining
a watch force on board and a larg?
number of caretakers probably was ?
compelling consideration. There was
the utmost surprise at the Navy Yare
when a message was received this morn
ing stating that the Maryland was un
der way for Norfolk.
Captain W. K. Riddle, captain of thi
yard, and acting commandant in th?
absence of Rear Admiral Andrews, callei
Washington by 'phono. He was author
j ?zed to accept and receipt for the vessel
subject to adjudication of pendin;
claims. The Maryland came in tow am
without any of her naval complement 01

properly introduced to Mme. Sacher.
This restaurant is not for the me

those whom madame knows by name
who are vouched for by her friends.
Everyone shakes hands with madar

You can see there any day half t
aristocracy of Vienna. The day t
corrspondent lunched there there wc
half a dozen counts, one princess, sc

Minister. Everybody seemed to kn?
everybody else. It was more like
high-class club than a restaurant.
In her little office madame will sh

A lunch at Sacher's?to-day will c

Ex-Soldier Asked Arrest
Timely Service Officer Tells
of Thirty Women Who
Work on Commission Plan
Daisy Russell, eighteen years old, of
attractive appearance, was arrested
yesterday afternoon, ct Fifty-ninth
Street and Seventh Avenue, by Patrol?
man McGinnes, of the East Fifty-thirl
Street police station, charged by Rich?
ard Bell, ex-service man, of 1219 Mad?
ison Avenue, with fraudulent solicit
Miss Russell was wearing insignia
similar to that of the American Red
Cross, Mr. Bell told the police, and
carrying a pan for collections such as
Red Cross collectors carry. The young
woman said she was collecting funds
for the "Timely Service Association,"
with offices in Room 17 at 132 Nassau
Street. After several hours' confine?
ment at the police station she was re?
leased on $500 bail, furnished by Vin?
cent P. Keough, described as a member
of the "advisory board" of the Timelv
Service Association. Mr. Keough
pledged household furniture to com?
plete the bail bond.
Thirty Women Employed
After Miss Russell had been set
free, Harry C. Messervy, "commercial
manager" of the association, said in
a statement issued to newspaper men,
that the organization employed about
thirty young women who were kept
busy collecting funds for the benefit
of work being undertaken. He said the
girls so employed received 25 per
cent of thi amount collected as "sal?
ary or expenses" and that the remu
n.ration amounted to about $3 a day.
Masservy said the Timely Service i
Association owned a tract of land near
East Millstone, N. J., upon which
wero several buildings. The money
collected was to equip the land for
use by unemployed persons. It was
intended to use the money for pur?
chasing implements necessary in
? farming. Mr. Masservy described him- j
self as treasurer and general mana- '
ger of the association and named Ed- \
ward A. Chase as vice-president.
Factories Are Planned
It was ultimately intended, Messervy I
I declared, to erect factories on the Mill- i
stone site. Water power was avail- i
able, he said, and competent persons !
had consideeed the scheme industrially
sound. With regard to Mr. Bell, who i
signed the complaint against Miss Rus-,
sell and is a member of the American;
Legion, Messervy said he believed Bell j
was the same man who had visited the j
company's offices several times and
asked questions concerning it.
Miss Russell was arrested on July 2 '
in company with a young woman j
named Margia Phillips on a similar ,
charge. The girls were discharged by I
Magistrate Sweetser in the First Dis- I
trict Court, who reprimanded the of?
ficers for making the arrest.
