Dr. G.

With him are aligned the Southern delegations, almost solid, he stated. Dr. Smead has before the House of Deputies a resolution en dorsing the Ltague of Nations cove nant in its present form.

NEW RADIO CONTROL POLICY LA LIBRE BELGIQUE Station to Be Opened to General PpubliCj Correspondence WASHINGTON, Oct. 18. A new policy for control and development before Congress today by Secretary Daniels. It provides for the maintenance of both naval and private stations, with the latter under control of a national radio commission, and proposes toj open existing tations to general pub lic correspondence at rates to be fix ed by the Navy Department and Con gress. General public transoceanic correspondence through naval sta tions would not be permitted, how ever, except during temporary sus pension of private service. Private radio stations would be li censed by the national radio com mission, and their corporate affairs, "apparatus," operators, and trans ition rates would be under super vison of he commission, which would be composed of four members and a secretary appointed by the President, with representatives from the Navy, War, Commerce, and Post Office De partments. The Secretary would be an active line officer of the Navy. ) Under. ' Vot bill, aliens or al- B Don E. Chamberlain. (United Press Staff Correspondent) ' NEW "YORK, Octl 18. How the famous mystery .paper of. occupied Belgium La Libre Belgique (Free Belgium) deled the German Gov ernment and told the truth of the war right under, the nose of the Ger man officials in Belgium, , was told here today by Pierre Goemaers, one of its staff of reporters. ' . Goemaere, who is only 25, ifc- companfing the Belgium rulers on their tour of the United States, and today for the first time he told the United Press some of its history. Gomaere, who acted as one of the twelve contributors bf the famous newspaper, has written a book on his ekneciences which is shortly to" be published. - V "The Libre Belgique was founded at the beginning of 1915 by .the ayed Brussels journalst Victor- Jourdain, who gathered around him several devoted collaborators' said Goe- maere. "Toeether this group of friends wrote thearticles for the pa per. To do this they etired with their chief to a secret chamber, where an electric bell had been ' in stalled to warn them of danger. While waiting to send articles to the printer, the . wriers hd the ejnu scripts in the pipes of the radiators. "The day on which the paper had to be printed saw' the manuscripts transferred to the hollow interior of several walking sticks, and thus were they transported through the streets. . "Where was the paper printed? is a 'question often asked. The Libre Belgiqque had no less than sixteen printers (they were al thrown in jail one after another, so it can be im agined that the place of publication changed often. The Germans believ ed the printing place was in an auto mobile, but'the Libre Belgiqque was often printed in the cellar of aban doned houses or in secret under ground spot. "If the work of printing was dan gerous there was another part of the task of publication even more peril ous that of distribution. Here is how managers generally proceeded : "When the paper had been printed lfty thousand were run off at a time they were carried to certain places known to the men in charge of distribution. To enter these plac es pass words were required, such as "For the King," "Praise God," "Princess Marie Jose," or "Long Germans. 'He will return for lunch, answered the woman. 'We will wait here,' the detectives said. 'Do not leave the place.' Then they hid in the store. "But the woman had made an agreement with her husband that if the Germans ever arrived durng his absence she would place on the door the sign: 'Closed.' Without losing any of her nerve she said to the Ger mans, 'I had better put this sign on the door, to keep away customers who may come in and annoy you by their presence.' The detectives con ferred and decided it was a splendid idea. 'But o not budge yourself,' they said, 'We will put up the sign ourselves.' And so they did. "Wren noon came the husband ap proached his store and seeing the sign walked nonchalantly down the street, and was saved. One day the Germans made a tre mendous ecort to capture the collab orators of the Libre Belgique. One hundred and twenty-two persons were thrown into prison. Everything had been disnvoMd. The secret of fice had bee Ant ing house an papier."" "That night the German governor gave a banquet to celebrate the death of La Libre Belgique. At des sert, the governor thanked every body who had anything to do with the discovery of the paper and its editor. Then raising his glass, he said, 'I drink to the end of our night mare and the death of the Libre Bel gique.' ''But at that moment a German officer came in and threw a paper on the festive board. The governor, consternated, beheld a new issue of La Libre Belgique, in which appear ed a photograph of all the detectives who believed they had discovered the editors and plant. "The legend was: 'These men think they hrve killed La Libre Bel gique. As they see, it still exisw However, ' vhey must not dispair, and to stimulate tneir zeal, we ocer a prize of 100,000 marks to anyone of their number who will come to visit us in our omce.'

The Board of Missions today asked the convention to authorize a cam paign among the church membership fnr nled?es to finance the church work extension program, to cost an undetermined amount that probably will reach $100,000,000.

It was an enjoyable enter tainment, presented by a company well balanced, but not of particular brilliance. The dialogue was clever and kept those present amused throughout. Hilary Farrington is a novelist. When he suddenly discovers hat his wife has ceased loving him and is about to elopt with another man he sets about, in a rather uncommon and decidedly polite manner to make things extremely comfortable for both. This, of course, in the truest sense of the word. He does not by any means, proceed to make wifey see the folly of her way and explain to her that his work has kept him from showering all attentions upon her. On the contrary, he proceeds in a most charming manner to suggest all sorts of nice things for the pre-ar ranged elopement In fact, he goes so far as to even suggest that they give up thir intended journey to California. The long, tedious train ride would, in a great measure, erase all elements of romance from their journey. He suggests and finally persuades them to journey in a motor to his country bungalow and spend their proposed honeymoon there, just as he did almost a year before. The eloping wife lnds she does not love the other man, ' a realization brought about by jealousy, and the piece ends with all happy. ST. JAMES METHODIST CHURCH.

German military governor of Brus- sells, who raged and fumed, but never found the guilty one. The distributor learned that at a certain hour each day the Governor went in to a room adjoining his to dictate letters. He chose this hour to enter Wirnnch a window. After several times, Germanu detectives were But on the job, but they never succeeded in catching this man. The Germans were highly en raged. Their pride could not sup port the thought of thus being mock ed. But the more the lion roared the more the mouse tickled. Street urch ins took great deliyht in pinning the secret paper to the backs of dandy German omcers. "When the Libre Belgique had reached its first anniversary a hu morous cartoon was published under the title "The Woe of Lofe." It showed the German governor seated in an arm chair, with an air of des olation. Before him wer ethe records of all the searches which had been made to discover the publishers of La Libre Belgique, also the bills paid to detectves. Above the governor's head was the indication of his dream: an automobile rushing about in a cloud, with the poor official wringing his hands and crying: 'For a year now I have searched for thee night and day, O beloved, but always thou hast escaped me.' "Another time the Libre Belgique published the portrait the gov ernor, and under it these words: 'O'ur dear governor has done us the honor of sending his autographed photographe, and we thank him heartily.' The alleged autograph was as follows: 'I thank you sincerely for all the compliments you have not ceased to shower on me, but I ask you please to treat the animals with gentleness.' "I regret not to be able to recount all the ruses employed by the cour ageous collaborators of La' Libre Belgique in the moment when they were on the verge of ruin through discovery But I can tell one of the thousands." One day tne uerman ae tectives learned that one of the re porters for the paper lived in a paper store and, with revolvers in hand, they burst nto the place. The man's wife was behind the counter.
