FOREIGN SUSPECTS
TIFLIS SOVIET
HAVE IJP TIME
(B7 Associated Prel. .
i Tiflis, Soviet Georgia, Oct. 21
iwhat happens to the foreigner pick
ed up as a political suspect eve'n 'un
der the supposedly mild rule of this
Soviet, may be judged from the case
of Mrs. Liana Edwards, the Russian
wife of James Edwards, of Youngs
town, 0., who has just been released
through the efforts of the Dutch con
sul, representing United States in
terests here.
Mrs. Edwards had a perfectly
good passport, obtained as the wife
of James Edwards, whom she mar
ried here 16 months ago while he
was an officer of the Near East Re
lief. He went away on business, so
he told her, and has not since re
turned. When Georgia passed again into
the hands of Moscow last March, af
ter Several years as an independent
republic, she fled with many others
to Batum but there decided to re-
main and take her chances.
She worked for a time as transla
tor of English under the new Soviet
and then in August was arrested by
the secret police, charged with being
a foreign spy and was offered money
to go to Constantinople and work for
the Soviet. This she refused and so
she was sent here and imprisoned.
. In prison most of her clothes v;cre
taken away, ostensibly to be burned
during the cholera epidemic and
those she had on fumigated. She
was not given a bed but told to sleep
on the floor. Her food, so she relat
ed later, consisted of a pound of bad
bread per day, with hot water in the
morning and thin soup at night. She
scrubbed floors during the day. Also,
each day she was told she would be
shot as a bourgeois.
What aroused the special hate and
attention of the Bolsheviki was her
maiden name of Romanov. She stat
ed that her mother was an American
Liana Davenport, and that she was
born in Taskent, where her father
was governor general. Because of
the name Romanov she was suspect
ed of being related to the famiiy of
the late Czar.
She gave her . last possessions of
iewels as a bribe to a released wo
man prisoner and got word to the
Dutch Consul who after various ce

HARDEST BATTLE
01 II GRID TODAY
(By AoeU:d Vmn.t
Jacksonville, Oct. 21. The Univer
sity of Florida football eleven will
engage in its hardest struggle of the
season thus far when it meets, Ten
nessee at Knoxville, tomorrow. Flo
rida's showing this season has given
oromise of the best squad the uni
versity has turned out in several
years, and the Tennessee game is
looked upon as a real test.
Rollins and Stetson Uuniversity
come together at DeLand for their
annual clash, this game apparently
making up the major portion of their
card. Both teams are of the lijjht and
fast caliber and theyshould stage
an interesting contest.
The high school card for the week
is somewhat split between today and
tomorrow. Lakeland and Lake City
ushered in the week end with a com
plete upset of predictions when Lake
land ran away t othe tune of zb to o.
Tomorrow's high school schedule
follows:
DeLand at Orlando. '
Charleston, S. C, and Duval.
Sanford at Ocala.
St. Petersburg at Palmetto.

LABOR BOARD STIFFENS UP
TO TEST ITS REAL POWERS
(Continued from Paee 1.).
for violation of its decrees.
In connection with the Labor
Board order to defer strike action
it was pointed out the Big Five union
chiefs yeatereday informed the Doara
that the strike could not be post
poned as no arrangements for such
a contingency had been made, al
though it could be settled.
The board's announcement today
came as one of the most sensational
developments in the rail crisis since
the Big Five unions let it become
known that they were formally
sending authorization for a strike.
Tt. was issued virtually without warn
ing and at a time when the concen
sus had been that this governmental
agency met an impasse in its at
tempts to settle the strike when its
conference , yesterday with union
chiefs was adjourned with the an
nouncement that no results had been
attained. Coming as the first instance
where the board so decisively expres
sed authority which many railroad
and labor men had maintained it did
not possess, the board's action found
most of the interested leaders too
astounded to comment.
Tnnio-ht local railroad presidents
refused to discuss, the pronouncement
other than to say that it woum pe
complied with so far as they were'
concerned. They declared that they
had not violated the board's decision
and took the attitude that the cita
tion really was directed at the un
ions alone, saying that carriers were
called in simply because it was nee
essary to have both sides in the de
cision represented.
The impression was given tnat
the administration feels other ave
nues are open by which a settlement
I may be reached. No indication w
! given, however, as to what course
would be followed or wnav
tion the government may have had
from the Labor Board. It was made
plain by high officials that they be
lieved the use of war powers
t o00!.r-v. meanwhile declaring
HUt wvwu-.J,
that "this nation is at peace. Beliet
was expressed that amicable anu
definite results could De ooiamu
n,,,rh Tipo-otiations rather than by
use of force such as involved in the
exercises of war powers.

Kn War Powers to Be Used

on the Peniel road. Mr. Cubbedge
was closing up, according to Officer
Green, when a tall mullatto negro
approached him and attempted to
rob him. Mr. Cubbedge ran into his
store and slammed the screen door.
The nearo. he said, thrust the muz-
!e of a revolver through the screen,
but Mr. Cubbedge called for help and
some cowboys camped a short dis
tance away responded and the negro
made his escape. A search was made
for him in the adjacent woods, said
Officer Green, but the flash light bat
teries gave out and at 3:30 the
trail was lost.
"There's no doubt in my mind that
Tanlac saved mv wife's life," was the
positive statement' of Benjamin H
Kauffman, 505 Bingainan St., Read-
in. Pa., nonuiar clothing salesman
for the well-known firm of Crol! &
Keck.
"I was almost desperate from Wor
rying over her condition, as she hart
suffered so long without getting re
lief and I can hardly believe my. own
eves now when I sec the change in
her. Why, she doesn't show her age
by twenty years and declares she
never remembers feeling better in
her life. Her health was failinf
steadily for a year as a result of ca
tarrh of the stomach, and I have nev
er seen anybody suffer as much fron
indigestion and nervousness as she
did.
"Alter a five weeks' course of T
iac she was like another person, and
I'm firmly convinced that years have
been added to her life. It manes mei
shudder now when I think what the
result might have been if she hadn't
taken Tanlac in time."
Tanlac is sold by Aekerman-Slew

gists.
