World Service
By Radio Phone
Is Planned Soon
Companies in Patent Merger
to Start Work at Once on
General Communication
With Europe and Vessels
Details Now Are Withheld
Dr. Alexanderson's Device
Is Installed at Several At?
lantic Coast Stations
Steps to bring about general wire
loss telephone communication with
Europe and with ships at sea are to be
taken immediately as a result of the
merger of patents between the Ameri?
can Telephone and Telegraph Company
and the General Electric and Radio
Corporation of America. This fact
was learned yesterday, although all
the principal officers of each company
concerned with the merger were out
of town.
A short statement from the Amer?
ican Telephone Company announced
that, in order to carry out the pur?
poses of the recent agreement with
the General Electric Company, the
former company had purchased a
minority interest in the Radio Corpo
ration of America, and W. S. Gifford,
second vice-president of the telephone
company, has been made a director in
the Radio Corporation.
The merger between the two compa?
nies is the culmination of a campaign
started shortly after tne war whereby
the control of wireless development
was gradually concentrated in Ameri?
can hands. Up to the conclusion oi
hostilities in Europe the controlling
interest in the American Marconi Com?
pany was held by the British Marcon:
Company. American scientists anc
engineers, however, succeeded ir
bringing out many remarkable inven?
tions that completely revolutionized
the science of wireless communica?
tion.
U. S. Company Takes British Interests
By mutual arrangement the interest
of the British corporation was taker
over by the General Electric Companj
and the new Radio Corporation oi
America was formed.
Since the negotiations that broughl
about the present merger were com?
menced Dr. Ernest P. W. Alexander
son, who was known as the wireless
wizard of the General Electric Com?
pany, has been made chief engineer oi
the Radio Corporation.
At the offices of the Radio Corpora
tion yesterday it was said that then
were yet several details to be worket
out in connection with the contract
Mr. Gifford was the only official in N'ev
York yesterday. He refused to discus;
the situation, other than to say thi
merger was complete and the develop
ment of the possibilities offered by thi
patents of the two companies would b'
carried out.
New Alternator Ts Installed
The famous high frequency alter
nator invented by Dr. Alexanderso;
that revolutionized transoceanic wire
less has recently been installed at th
trans-Atlantic station at Chatam an
Marion, Mass. These two stations ar
in daily communication with Norwa
and Germany. The two stations at Be'
mare and New Brunswick, N. J., are i
daily communication with Great Britaii
The trans-Atlantic station at Tuckei
ton, N. J., is being remodeled. Whethe
this station will be used as a test sts
tion for trans-Atlantic wireless tele
phony could not be learned. As a re
suit of the merger it is planned t
construct the largest wireless station i
the world at Rocky Point, Long Islam
During the war Dr. Alexanderson ir
vented an apparatus that gives to wir?
less telephony the same efficiency a
the ordinary telephone. This inventio
permits the user to interrupt the pei
pon he is talking to in the same manne
as in the ordinary telephone. This j
one of the inventions that make it po?
sible to link up the wireless telephon
with the ordinary land line exchange

Girl Who Jilted War Hero
To Wed Hero No. 2Loses Both
English Typist, Won on Voyage Across Ocean to
Meet Fiance, Finds Man Who Was Cause of
America Barring Her Is Accused by Tradesmen
Fate?capricious clement?has toyed 1
ungcntly with pretty Helen Butler,
twenty years old, a Manchester, Eng?
land, typist recently denied entrance
to Canada and the port of New York
because she had changed her mind con?
cerning her two suitors, both officers
in the English army.
News was received in New York yes?
terday that fianc? No. 2, Captain Paul
Miller, late of the R. F. A., whoso
acquaintance on shipboard caused
Helen to turn away from the man who
was waiting for her at Halifax, Cap?
tain T. H. Kitchen, late of the R.F. A.,
will not be Helen's husband. Fate
has stepped in again at Manchester,
and the engagement ?3 over.
When the Halifax immigration
authorities boarded the Royal George
on June 19 and learned that Helen
had given her heart to another on the
voyage over they sided with the fianc?
thnt-was-to-be, waiting at the dock.
"You are free to choose between us,"
said Captain Kitchen. Helen lost little
timo in choosing Captain Miller. The
latter dashed ashore and returned with
a preacher and a wedding ring, but the*
immigration authorities were adamant.
The ne"xt attempt to land on this con?
tinent was made at Ellis Island a few
days later. Captain Miller was thero
and so was Helen. Americnn immigra?
tion authorities refused to admit the
girl and there were no nuptials. Helen
sailed for Liverpool on the Cunard liner
Caronin and Captain Miller followed
her across 8,000 miles of water on the
next steamer.
The latest word comes from the Man?
chester edition of The London Daily
Mail. Captain Miller, otherwise Major,
or Paul, Mcllor," is charged with "ob?
taining goods from tradesmen."
"It has all been a big blunder
throughout, but I am happy to say
that my engagement to Captain Miller
has been broken off," was Helen's com?
ment to The Daily Mail, "I deeply
regret tho whole affair, but surely I
cannot be held to blame. If Captain
Kitchen had only come to England in?
stead of my having to go out to Can?
ada to him, things might have been
so different. I have not been in touch
with Captain Kitchen nor will I be."
Six thousand miles of ocean travel,
two sets of immigration authorities and
Fate have been too much for the girl,
and according to the English newspa?
per she is still a "pretty Manchester
typist."
State Agents Raid

Bascom Turns Attention to
Three Cigar Emporiums
Downtown ; Batters in the
Doors of Indian Tavern
SARATOGA SPRINGS, Aug. 24?The
raiding activities of Deputy Attorney
General Wyman S. Bascom, who is in?
vestigating alleged gambling in this
city, unexpectedly shifted to-day from
roulette wheels on the outskirts of the
city to three cigar stores on Broadway,
in the heart of the city. The stores
were visited this afternoon by a dozen
deputies. They cut the telephone
wires and took possession of charts
and sheets, which they said were used
in receiving bets and information on
the races here and in Canada. Names
of persons found in the stores were
taken. The raids were witnessed by
large crowds.
Earlier in the day Bascom's men bat?
tered in the door of the Indian Head
Tavern, a restaurant within the city
limits. They found a roulette wheel
and other gambling paraphernalia on
the upper floor.
John P. Dennin, of Albany, proprie?
tor of the restaurant, was summoned
to appear before Justice Van Kirk, pre?
siding over an extraordinary grand
jury at Ballston Spa. Four employees
were arrested. Their cases were ad?
journed until to-morrow.
The evidence gathered in the restau?
rant and cigar stores will be presented
to the grand jury. Bascom also is ex?
pected to submit evidence regarding a
raid made on an alleged gambling es?
tablishment in the village of Corinth,
north of this city, where he found, he
said, gambling apparatus and a quan?
tity of liquor.
The jurors resumed their sessions
to-day after a recess over the week
end.
Hylan Denies Being "Seen
About Limestone Contracts"
Mayor Hylan yesterday denied the
statement published in a morning news?
paper that he "was seen about lime?
stone for the new courthouse," and
was introduced to one of the principal
limestone dealers in his office at the
City Hall.
The Mayor declared that, "the mo?
nopoly of the granito contract gang
having been broken," they were now en?
deavoring to impute wrongdoing on the
part of the city officials. He said this
was the usual method employed by con?
tractors who failed to obtain a con?
tract through public letting.
$1,000,000 Stolen
Bonds Recovered;
Delay for Arnstein
Surety Company's Counsel
Announces That He Ex?
pects Return of as Much
More of Lost Securities
One million dollars of the $2,500,000
worth of bonds stolen from Wall
Street banks and brokerage houses
last winter have been recovered, ac?
cording to a statement made yester?
day by Samuel Meyers, counsel for the
National Surety Company, after the
case of "Nicky" Arnstein, called be
fore a referee in bankruptcy, hac
been adjourned until September 10.
It was expected by the suretj
company attorneys to make an effor
to force Arnstein to disclose what h?
might know about the hiding plac?
of the alleged stolen bonds. Willian
J. Fall?n, counsel for Arnstein, sough
a postponement of the examinatioi
and Meyers agreed.
Meyers said that of the bonds re
covered, $600,000 worth, were foum
in banks and trust companies in Phila
delphia and Washington. Through th
confession of persons implicated i;
the thefts, Meyers said, additiona
bonds, to the value of $400,000, ha
been restored.
"We are confident," he said, "of re
covering more of the stolen securitie
to the vnlue of $1,000,000 by Electio
Day an.d the remaining bonds will b
restored to their owners by Christ
mas."
Meyers, while refusing to disclos
the names of the persons who ha
helped in the recovery ?if the $1,000.00
in bonds, said his firm was dcalin
with members of the conspiracy, an
that to say too much at this time mig!
put a check to further investigate;
The main task now, according (
Meyers, is to prevent the disposal (
the bonds by those who have them i
hiding.

Bedtime Stories
The Little Rabbit Tells His Troubles
By Thornton W. Burgess
To get your trouble off your mind
A sympathizing listener find.
?Peter Rabbit,
How Striped Chipmunk did laugh
when the willful little son of Peter
Rabbit confessed that he guessed he
was lost. You see that little Rabbit
hated to admit that he was lost. It
hurt his pride. Striped Chipmunk un?
derstood this. You see, once upon a
time Striped Chipmunk had himself
started out to make a place in the
Great World, and he hadn't forgotten
his experiences. He knew just how
Peter's little son felt.
Now Striped Chipmunk's laugh
was good to hear. He is a merry little
fellow whom everybody loves. The
very sound of that laugh made the lit?
tle Rabbit feel better, and before he
knew it he was laughing himself.
"Tell me all about your adventures,"
commanded Striped Chipmunk.
So the little Rabbit began at the be?
ginning and told about ull his adven?
tures. He told how he had not in?
tended to really run away, but had got
lost and then couldn't find the deal
Old Briar-patch. He told how he had
spent one night in the homo of Johnnj
Chuck without knowing whose home i(
was. Last of all he told about his ad
venture with the Black Shadow wit!
claws, and showed Striped Chipmunl
his torn coat.
"That wasn't p Black Shadow at all,'
declared Striped Chipmunk. "It mus
have been Spooky the Screech Owl. I
it had been his big cousin, Hooty, yo\
wouldn't be here now. I guess Spook;
must have made a mistake. You ar
too big to need to fear him, but watcl
those Black Shadows 1 Watch them
The Black Shadows themselves' ar
harmless enough, but the terror of th
night is Hooty. He makes no soum
and seems to drift along for all th
world like a ?Black Shadow. Wheneve

where Hooty's great claws canno
reach you. There is no one in all th
Green Forest or on all the Green Mead

Hooty the Owl. Thank goodness

"Why don't you have to worry abou
him?" asked the little Rabbit, innc
cently.
"Because," replied Striped Chipmunl

demanded Striped Chipmunk.
time, goodness knows, without running
unnecessary risks at night. That is the
time to sleep."
"Somehow I feel safer at night," said
the little Rabbit. "I can't be seen so
easily then."
"Huh!" exclaimed Striped Chipmunk.
"Huh! That goes to show how little
you know of the Great World and the
people who live in it. There are better
eyes than yours always on the watch
for young Rabbits at night. There are
the eyes of Hooty the Owl and Old Man
Coyote and Reddy and Granny Fox, not
to mention Shadow the Weasel."
"Who is Shadow the Weasel?" asked
the little Rabbit. "I have seen Old
Man Coyote and Reddy and Granny Fox,
but I wouldn't know Shadow the Weasel
if I should meet him. Who is he and
what is he like?"
At that very instant Striped Chip?
munk gave a smothered little gasp and
' such a look of fright crept into his
eyes that the little Rabbit felt cold
chills run all over him without in the
least knowing why.
"There he is now," whispered Striped
Chipmunk.

Bergdoll Guard
Thought Insane
Over His Escape
Sergeant O'Hare, Who Took
Grover on Treasure Hunt,
Is Sent to Washington
Hospital for Observation
Mind Upset by Worry
Army Officials Await Re?
port on His Condition,
Which Mav Delay Trial
Sergeant John O'Hare, in charge of
the military guard that escorted Grover
Cleveland Bergdoll, millionaire draft
dodger, from Castle William's prison on
Governor's Island to Philadelphia last
May, and from whom the convicted
slacker made his escape, is thought to
be mentally unbalanced as a' result of
worry over the matter.
O'Hare was sent to Walter Reed
Hospital, Washington, on August 2,
for observation and treatment, but no
report has been received by the military
authorities on Governor's Island re?
garding the case.
O'Hare and Sergeant York, who com?
prised Bergdoll's guard on the proposed
"treasure hunt," are nwaiting trial by
a general court martial Friday.
O'Hare Showed Worry
At the trial several weeks ago of
Colonel John E. Hunt, former com?
mandant of the Governor's Island
disciplinary barracks, for neglecting to
take the proper precautions to prevent
tho prisoner's escape, both Sergeant
O'Hare and Sergeant YoTk testified.
At that time Sergeant O'Hare proved
a normal witness. Ho showed, how?
ever, traces of worry in his face and in
his voice. The military authorities be?
came disturbed recently by his con?
dition and sent him to the Washington
hospital.
Under military law alleged offenders
cannot be held without trial for more
than forty days. O'Hare and York
were placed under arrest the latter
part of May, immediately after Berg?
doll's escape, but after forty days were
restored to duty.
Trials Set for August 27
Colonel Charles Cresson, assistant
departmental judge advocate, said yes?
terday that he was awaiting the hos?
pital report on O'Hare's condition, and
that when the report is received a
board of three medical officers will be
convened to examine into the non-com?
missioned officer's sanity. This is the
| usual proceeding, Colonel Cresson said.
i It was done in the case of Grover Berg
| doll prior to his trial by court-martial.
? Captain Leo Samuelson, commandant
j of Castle William prison, where Berg
? doll was confined, said yesterday he
had had no word regarding O'Hare's
! condition. The O'Hare and York cases
i are set for trial August 27, he said,
' and if O'Hare is not back by then it is
; likely that York's case will be taken
up alone. Captain Robert F.. Hannay
j will be the trial judge advocate; and
I Captain Weir is expected to defend the
| two sergeants.
Truck Interests Unite
To Stimulate Industry
Campaign Planned to Encour?
age Shipments Through Asso?
ciation's Membership
Temporary organization of the prin?
cipal trucking interests of New York
into a unit designed to become a part
of the National Haulers' Association
was effected nt the Biltmore Hotel
yesterday afternoon. W, B. Doran,
Eastern manager of the Ship-by-Truck
Bureau, was elected temporary chair
! man of the organization, which will
meet again next Friday.
The purpose of the action is to de
! vise a means of stabilizing the truck
i ing industry in New York and ajacsnt
! territory and of educating shippers to
! the advantages of having their hauling
I done by truck in these times when
i railroads are hampered by an un
| precedented congestion of freight.
L. C. Frazer, of California, director
I of the National Haulers' Association,
told the truckmen of the advantages
that had acctucd to haulers through
unified action in those states where
organization already has been per?
fected. He said it was the duty of re?
sponsible hauling concerns ta take
some action that will eliminate irre?
sponsible truckmen and establish con?
fidence among manufacturers and ship?
pers in the truck as a method of haul?
ing their freight.

trousers. All are good, sensible Wanamaker,
Burlington Arcade styles, mostly single-br<

men.
Wide choice of colors. Pick of hard finished
worsteds, the softer unfinished worsteds, and
