TURKEY PLANNING DECISIVE ACTION hold Details of Scheme Istanbul, Turkey, Dec. 31 UP) Turkey moved toward decisive action yesterday in the government's de termination to suppress religious re action, and a member of the depu ties advocated in a session of par liament establishment of a "reign of terror" in the campaign against rebellious elements. The government itself, which re cently threatened "stern measures" continued to withhold details of its plans, but President Mustapha Kem al Pasha has abandoned a projected tour through the Province of Smyr na and is going directly to Angora. Other reports from Smyrna, where the minister of the interior is to conduct his own investigations, in dicated a stubborn attitude on the part of the people, particularly at Meneracn where a young army offi cer recently-was killed by reaction ary rioters. Not one per cent of the population turned out for the funeral. Turkish youth, however, appears to have rallied to the support of the government, swearing loyalty to the Gazi.

POISON REPORTED IN A1DFSST0MACH Doctors Refuse to Confirm Ru mor About Naval Attache Washington, Dec. 31 (UP) In vestigation of the mysterious death of Lieut. Bruce Settle, White House naval aide, has revealed evidence believed by police to connect his automobile with an accident which caused the injury of four persons the night before he suddenly died at the Washington navy yard. The Washington Post said also there was a report "from a reliable source" that poison was found in Settle's stomach, but that physicians who performed the autopsy refused to confirm the report. The naval board of inquiry inves tigating Settle's death was called to gether again today to hear witnesses describe the accident in which the young officer was believed to have been involved. Settle was reported by Grant L. Russell, an employe of the apartment house where he liv ed, to have appeared to be drinking Sunday night, when the accident oc curred. Police have recovered the officer's automobile, which showed signs of having been in an accident of some sort. POLISH PLEA FILED ONPOLASKISTAMPS Delegation Waits on Postmaster Who Promises Quick Action Although New Britain is not in cluded among the first cities to re ceive the Pulaski stamp efforts ai-j being made by Polish Literary guild, an organization composed of nine: civic and military societies of this city, to have the stamps issued here soon after the day of their release inent on January 15. A suggestion made by Lucian No winski, president of tho guild, at a meeting last night at the Falcon hull on Beaver street, to have a petition presented to Herbert K. L'rwin. post master by representatives of the or ganization, was adopted. Mr. Nowlnski. Joseph Kozakicn icz. secretary, and Boleslaus Karpinski, a delegate, conferred with Postmas ter Erwin on the matter this after noon after delivering Iho petition and were assured that immediate action would be taken. The petition reads: To the Honorable Herbert E. Em in, Postmaster, New Britain, Conn. At a meeting duly held for that purpose on December 30, 1 930, by the Tolish Literary Guild comprised of the following organizations: Falcons' Nest No. 8S, Group No. 2093 Polish National Alliance, Group No. iHS Polish National Alliance.- Polish Political Club No. 1. Polish American Republican Club, Kosciuszko Post. Polish Business Mens' Association, Haller Post, and Association of Musicians, it was voted that a petition be drawn requesting your assistance in obtain ing as soon as possible after the is sue of the new stamp known as the "Pulaski Stamp" an allotment for the sale of said stamp in the city of New Britain. As it is well known our city probably numbers more citizens of the United States of Polish ex traction than any other city in New England, and the above organization representing about 3500 people of Polish extraction practically repre sent the sentiment of that class of people. It. is therefore requested by the. said organization that ou use ef forts to do everything possible to ob tain as soon as can be a number of said stamps for use of the citizens of this city.

O'Sullivan, Marg.uc.tte universitj;, Mencken Says Budding Authors Nowadays Don't Have to Languish; Wishes Lewis Had Kept Still Critic Says Friend Sinclair Ought to Stop Making Speeches and Return to Writing Novels Says Prize Award Blow to Theologians. Baltimore, Dec. 31 (IP) It s land ho! and rainbow's end for the bud ding genius of the pen! H. L. Mencken, editor, critic, sometime lambasted bad boy of Baltimore, thinks times never were better for the young American writer. Said Mr. Mencken: "If a new Walt Whitman should write a new 'Leaves of Grass' tomorrow he'd certainly not have to print it at his own ex pense. I know- at least a dozen high toned and very solvent publishers who would leap at it. Would Have Real Income "Moreover. the magazine rights would bring a pretty penny. Thus the new Walt would not have to re sort to mendicancy: he would have an income at least equal to that, of a young lawyer, doctor or pedagogue." The editor of the American .Mer cury and arch bachelor of the coun tryuntil he married last August was gratified that Sinclair Lewis won the Nobel prize for literature, but he hopes Mr. Lewis "stops mak ing speeches and returns to writing novels." Mr. Lewis misplaced his rosy glasses when he addressed the Swed ish Academy and avowed art was a hard struggle in America. .Mr. Menc ken counters: "It is possible to get a hearing for any sort of idea, no matter how unusual, and for most of thom there is very good pay." "True enough," continued Mr. Mencken, "young writers of genuine originality arc always violently de nounced by certain groups of old sters. This was the case with I'oe. it was tho cac wilh Whitman, it was the. case with Dreiser, and it is still the case with Sinclair Lewis. Tin: correct criticism of 155". eloquently voiced by tho Itev. Kufus Griswold, dismissed Poe as a wicked fellow. Warned Against Whitman "In the 70's all the professors warned their charges against Whit man, and to this day he is under the ban in many American colleges-. In the same way Mark Twain was read out of meeting as a mere clown; the first Christian pedagogue to speak a decent word for him was William Lyon Phelps, and that was not until 1310, when Mark was 7 5 and about to die. All of them still deride Dreiser and Lewis. "But this opposition is of no im portance. If it has any effect at all. it is probably a good effect. That is, it warns multitudes of bright young men and women that academ ic criticism is simply what Al Smith calls boloney. Such indignant meta physicians as Professor Irving Bab bitt of Harvard can no more stop the course of national letters than Fr. Robert A. Millikan and Com pany can stop the destruction of the ology by science. Blow lo Theologians ''The award of the Nobel prize to Lewis was a humiliating blow to moral theologians, and it is no tvoh d.:r that they show a certain amount of rancor. As a follower of tho oppo sition, I confess that I'd have been upset a bit if the Swedes had given it to Henry Van Dyke, Robert Un derwood Johnson, Owen Wister, Owen Davis. Herman Hagedorn. Augustus Thomas, Robert W. Chambers or some other such academician. But tho Swedes were well advised, and so avoided that mistake. They seem to have far more humor in them than Dr. Babbitt. "As for Lewis' harangue m Stock holm, I can only regret it. Though neither was intended, it probably had two had effects. The First was that it spread the inmression in Europe that Van Dyke. Babbitt and company are not quite honest. The second was that it seemed to say that Lewis himself had a hard time getting a hearing. 1 see no sien of dishonesty in any of the eminent Presbyterians he denounced. They are all very earnest and fervid fel lows. It seems to mo that, m general, they are sadly wrong, but in this or that detail they are sometimes un doubtedly right, just as Tonpiemada, Bricham Young, l.y.lia pinMmrn and Czolgosz wore soim-tinies right. IMiln't Harm I.cwl- "Thcy certainly did no harm to l ewis, lie v a.s an immense success before they ever beard of him. and after that their shrill denunciations only helped him. Ho is up today, and they arc down; I think he might have been more humane. "In any case. 1 hate to sec an artist flog his critics. Critics have a hard enough time in the world as it is. They lead wretched lives and de serve to be handled gently. I hope Lewis stops making spe.ehes and returns to writing novels. He has made a masterpiece of ore of the. Babbiits; now b-t him do a book about the other one." New Haven AVoman Hurt; Driver Leaves Machine New Haven, Dec.
