FORD NEWSPAPERMEN HOUSED
IN DUTCH SANITARIUM
The Hague, Jan. . Because the
hotels are full, 50 newspaper corre
spondents acompanying Ford peace
party have been quartered in Dutch
sanitarium.
No guest of the sanitarium is per
mitted to use tobacco or liquor in
any form. No meat is allowed to
contaminate the bill of fare, which
consists largely of nuts, ground fig
ures and queer vegetables. Guards
of impressive appearance threaten to
oust" any correspondent who fails to
oT)ey regulations.
Mme. Schwimmer arranged for
quartering of correspondents and a
press caucus voted that she sent the
newspaper men to tobaccoless re
treat out of revenge. She has been
very angry because correspondents
cabled home accounts of various
rows among peace delegates. x
Peace meetings began here today,
but for some reason they are under
auspices of Royal Zoological and Bo
tanical society instead of being ar
ranged by Dutch peace societies. ,
