The Atlanta brand of the Ku Klux

to let it alone. It will kill itself from
lack of real sustenance.

McCo:mick, who is head of the In

statement issued through his secre

have been afloat ever since Mrs. Mc
Cormick exiled herself In Switzerland
eight years ago.
"Mr. and Mrs. McCormick are liv

tot known whethe r there will be di
Yorce proceedings. No steps toward
legal action have been taken."
.The statement concluded:
"Mr. McCormick hasn't anything
'fur'taer to give outt."
SThe secretary to .John D). 'Rockefel
Ier's son-in-law thon smiled.
"I do not know wher'e Mr. Mc~or

upon her return from Europe and it
Is reported she visited her billionaire
Shortly afterward she and her hits
hand traveled to Chicago on separate
trains--after having returned from
Eiurope on separate liners.
Mrs. McCormick, since she arrived
here, has denied ierself to several of
her former close friends.
The socially ,Irominent, whose pal

dier whether Mrs. McCormick, in pur

position she alone had the right to

Eight years ago, before Mrs. Mc
Cormick left for abroad, she shared
the leadership with Mrs. Potter Pal

McCormick was entitled to the lead
Social lights expressed their belief,
when KMrs. McCormick returned, that
"Chicago would be 'Chicago again,"
but When the news leafted out that
several of Mrs. McCormick's close
friends had been unable to get to

enter the social life, but give all of
her time to her psychology colony.
Mrs. "Fifl" Stillman, center of the
sensational divorce wrangle with her
millionaire husband, James A. Still

Bottled Fireflies Lure Fish.
Anyone would have supposed that
fish were immune to demoralization of
modern scientific progress, but even
fishing is coining under the sway of
advanced and entirely original ideas
of balt and fish hooks.
Izaak Walton would have shuddered
at the thought of using the storage
battery in the tall of a firefly to lure
wily bass at night, yet the contri
vance has been used to good advan
tage by William P. Osborne of the
New York State College of Forestry.
By imprisoning tireflies in a small
glass vial and rigging the container
with an ingenious arrangement of
hooks, black bass have been found to
succumb to the seinttilations of the
insects and to swallow with great rap.
