"Ladies and gentlemen, kindly take

Having banned everything at the

the National Association of Masters of

through the intricnte steps of a num?

this," Arthur Kretlow. who did the
leading, admitted before the session
The cat step, tcrpsichorean creation
of Mr. Kretlow, will be known in the
ball rooms of the nation during the
coming season as the polonaise mo?
derne. Mr. Kretlow also exhibited a
dance, originally called the came)
walk, which in its revised form will
masquerade as the fox trot artistique.
This dance consists of a numb??v
of steps, something after the fashion
of the paille step of the modern ballet.
Other innovation? of the ballroom
were the triangle one-step, which ?s
a modern version of the old French
dance which, was known as the valse
quatre temps, and the chique wait'/.,
which is a dance with the movements
of skating introduced.
At the morning session the executive
committee passed resolutions resenting
the opposition of the Methodist Church
to dancing, particularly as shown ir.

Miss Shaw was formerly the super?
intendent of the primary department of
the Sunday school of the (?race M. K.
Church of Wichita. In good standing,
she took a letter from the (?race
Church and applied for affiliation with
the First M. E. Church. Miss Shaw
said that she was denied membership,
and the reason given was the fact
that she conducted a dancing school.

The Tribune Fresh Air Fund
Boy Goes on Vacation With One Leg and Will
Come Back With Two
Tho Fund sent out 175 vacationists
yesterday. It sends twenty to-day, and
to-morrow will send 32(5 more.
Fifteen of those who began vac.it.ions
yesterday were mothers accompanied
by broods of children of various sizes.
Ordinarily, the fund does not provide
outings for mothers, but confines its
efforts to caring for children.
Those who went yesterday were
taken by the Fund because in all New
York no other fresh air organization
could be found which had places for
them. They are all mothers of large
families and need a chance to rest. At
The Tribune camps where they now
are they will be relieved of care of
all their children except babies in
arms, yet they will be where they can
watch over them and be sure that they
are safe and happy.
One of the Tribune Fund's proteges
went to tho country three weeks ago
with ono leg and is coming hack a
week hence with two. Naturally, the
second leg will be an artificial one,
Nevertheless, the lad will bring back
almost enough additional flesh and
blood to make a leg of his size, for he
has gained six and one-half pounds
?luring his three weeks and ought t?
acquire at least two more in the wee!
The story of how this boy and hi;
two sisters came in for four weeks o:
vacation each instead of the usua
fortnight shown the sort of hear
which dwells in a Fresh Air host';
When the children went to Castile
N. Y., their vacation place, to Di
Mary Greene, their vacaticn host, the;
were booked for a fortnight stay. Th
day before they were to board th
train for home, their mother was dis
possessed and there was no home fo
them to come back to. The Fun
learned this fact and te'legraphed Di
Greene, a:;king if she could manag
to keep the three children another tw
weeks until the mother could prcpar
a place for them. She wired in repl
that she could and would?an?l she i
doing so. Incidentally, all three of th
children in question are cripples, as i
the fourth child of the same mothc:
who remained at home.
The method by which Louis is to gc
his new leg is described in a lettc
from Dr. Greer.e:
"The three - children are doin
nicely. Louis has gained six and a.ha
pounds. I think we may have a benei
concert next week to help pay for
leg?when he can have it.
"He has already banked $3 for it <
money he has earned here.
"They can stay the two weeks mor
making the whole vacation here foi
"Louis is old enough to go hon
with the girls all right. Each one hi
a small bank account."
This Fresh Air host believes in soi
help?with encouragmont, Just how
her method works is indicated by the
fact that two crippled ""Fresh Air'i"
whom she took from the Fund for.
vacations in 1919 are still in Castile
one of them self-supporting.. And each
of these two girls--they are almost
young women -has herself played host
to two smaller "Fresh Airs" this sum?

Fund's work is invited. The following

Of Mayor G ay nor in
Divorce Suit Again
Mrs. Nelson Gammans, For?
mer Mrs. Ruf us Gaynor,
Answers Husband's Action
by Asking Separation
Mrs, Mary Gammans, once the wife of !
Rufus Gaynor, son of the late Mayor
William J. Gaynor, filed a suit in the
Supreme Court yesterday for a separa?
tion from her third husband, Nelson
Gammans, a lawyer, wno is now in
Porto Rico, suing his wife for divorce.
Mrs. Gammans is thirty-two years
old and her husband is twenty-eight.
Each charges the other with abandon?
ment, whiie Mr. Gammans adds to his
complaint that his wife treated him in
a cruel and inhuman manner. Mrs.
Gammans says that in the two years he
lived apart from her. Mr. Gammans
failed to provide for her.
Mr. Gammans ?j-, connected with the
law firm of Rounds, Hatch, Dillingham
& Debevoise. He left here for San
Juan. Porto Rico, on June 26. In his
suit, for divorce, he asks the custody
of Constance, his wife's daughter by
her first marriage, whom Mr. Gammans
Mrs. Gammans, then Mrs. May
Giuffrie, was married Lo Gammans
February 8, 1911. Gammans was nine?
teen years oid and a Harvard sopho?
more. This was followed by strong
objections from the young man's fam?
ily, who criticized the Rev. Dr. Duncan,
McMillan, pastor of the New YorkJ
Presbyterian Church, for performing
the ceremony. Mrs. George Garden
Gammans, mother of Mr. Gammans,
and Elbert H. Gammans jr., his uncle,
threatened proceedings to have the
marriage annulled on the ground that
the l>:idegroom was not of age. Noth?
ing came of these objections, however.
Mrs. Gammans obtained a divorce
from her first husband 0:1 the ground
of desertion. Then she married Rufus
Gaynor. This union was annulled on
the ground that Mrs. Giuffrie had not
obtained her decree of divorce dissolv
ii g her first marriage.
England Seeks Damages
For Holding Ships
WASHINGTON, Aug. 24.? Great
I Britain has initialed diplomatic con?
versations with the American govern?
ment as to the liability of the United
States for expenditures necessitated
by the detention in American ports of
the seven former German line steam?
ships allocated to this country for the
homeward movement of American
troops. The ships were held up by the
Shipping Hoard after their surrender
by the War Department, but finally
were delivered to England.
While the ships were detained here,
British crews sent to America to take
them over were idle in New York. A
question of demurrage charges al--.o
is understood to be involved, as sail?
ing dates for the shins on British
schedule had been announced.
No specific claim for reimbursement
has been presented, it is understood,
the negotiations having been started
for tho purpose of reaching an
amieahle agreement as to where the
responsibility for the delay rests. The
ultimate ownership of the vessels,
which include the Imperator, now
operated by the'Cunard Line, also is
understood to have been made a part
of the discussion.

Notice of contest over a will which
is said to dispose of $200 was filed in |

testator _ of the disputed instrument !
was David Kessler, who for many years j
was one of the leading playwrights and
theater managers of the East Side.
Mrs. Ida Heine, a daughter, is the con?
Ill the hey-dey of his popularity with
the Yiddish theater-going public Mr.
Kessler possessed a comfortable for- I
tune. lie suffered business reverses, |
but he never changed his will or added j

his reduced circumstances. When it ;
was filed for probate it was found that j
the will left the entire estate to his

For Americans !
Rumanian Crown Prince
Takes Morning Off to
Pencil 30-Page History
to Enlighten U. S. People
Reporter Staggers Him ?
Refuses Interviews After
Being Asked Whether His |
Nation Was in War!
Crown Prince Carol, the twenty-seven
year-old heir to the throne of Ru?
mania, spent the greater part of yes?
terday writing what he called "a con-j
eise history of Rumania." Seated at a'
window overlooking Fifth Avenue in i
his suite on the third floor of the j
Waldorf-Astoria, he scribbled with a j
pencil a narrative covering thirty j
pages of hotel stationery, because, he j
said, he had discovered on his eleven
days' journey from San Francisco that i
Americans were not sufficiently ac- ?
quainted with his country.
Once or twice the prince abandoned
his literary labors to make some pur- j
chases. He bought five new trunks to
add to his collection of fifty-nine and j
he acquired six new rifles, which he j
purposes to use for hunting. In the
evening he went to the Hippodrome, |
but it was not until he had completed
h?3 manuscript and had handed it over j
to stenographers to be copied. The ?
prir.ee will sail Saturday for Europe. ?
Describes Visit to United States
The prince is said to have meditated
writing out a statement concerning his
country ever since he landed on the
Pacific Coast, because at San Fran?
cisco some reporter asked him if Ru?
mania had been in the war. After
that he. refused to be interviewed, de?
claring chat if reporters did not know
Rumania had been in the war nothing
he could say would enlighten them.
Concerning his visit to America the |
"Having finished the official part of j
my trip, which consisted of a visit to ]
Egypt, India and Japan, I wanted on !
my way home to get a glimpse of the ?
United States. That is why I passed j
through here so as to be able to have
a faint idea of- the conditions in this
part of the world. This part of my
trip being completed unofficially, I
have tried to keep away from any of?
ficial or public receptions and demon?
"In the few days I have "been ir, your
country, I have bee,\ able to see some
of your economic institutions and a
certain number of your leading busi?
ness men, also something of your
spirit of business, which is so much
spoken of in Europe. I have seen, too,
with great pleasure, that Rumania has
many friends in the United States, and
I am convinced that it would have many
more if the country and the conditions
at home were better known here.
"All Roumanians keep in their hearts
most grateful remembrance of the ad?
mirable work done by the American
Led Cross and relief missions. We
will never forget that in our great
misery and need valiant American citi?
zens came to give help to a starving
und brave ally."
Praise for Rumania
After he had carefully detailed
Rumania's part in European history,
beginning with the year 105 A. D., the
prince discussed his country's entry
into the European war in August, 1916.
He did not hesitate to point out that
the war soon turned to Rumania's "dis?
advantage." The prince continued:
"The enemy aimies, which should
have been checked by tho Allied offen?
sives at Sal?nica and in Bukowina,
were thrown against us, and after a
heroic defense of a month and a half
in the mountains we were forced to re?
tire into Moldavia. Before doing this
we made a brave effort to beat the
enemy in an open battle. In this we
were nearly successful, and the battle
of Bucharest will remain one of the
fine pages of our war.
"The retreat, made in the most mis?
erable conditions, succeeded perfectly,
through the energy of our commanders
and the devotion of the soldiers, leav?
ing their homes in the hands of a
heartless enemy.- Oil wells and grain
stations were destroyed.
"In Moldavia the army reorganized
with the help of French instructors,
for which we will be ever grateful.
However, here also misery came. The
epidemics ravaged our army and cieil
population. The devotion of those who
fought against these epidemics, headed
by the Queen herself, was admirable.
"After the disease came the Russian
revolution, which destroyed the last
aiil which we could get from the out?
side, but still we were able to inflict
upon the enemy a great defeat, the
first which Marshal Mackensen had
had from the beginning of the war.
This was at the battles of Marasti and
Troubles After Armistice
"Soon came the armistice and the
peace of Bucharest, which was forced
upon us, as we were completely sur?
rounded by enemies. Before the gen?
eral armistice we immobilized and were
able to enter Transylvania, but even
after the peace our troubles were not
over. We had to fight the Hungarians,
being attacked by the Hungarian Bol
sheviki. It was necessary for us to
go to Budapest and occupy the greater
part of Hungai*,', where we established
law and order."
When the war ended, the prince
said, it was found that the enemy
had taken everything, "from the loco?
motive to the last shirt of the peas?
ant." He said he hoped Americans
would help in speedily reconstructing
Longshoremen Win Point.
In Fight for Closed Shop
Judge Hand Refuses to Grant
injunction and Dissolves
Old Restraining Order
Federal Judge Augustus N. Hand, in
the United Slates District Court yes?
terday, refused to grant an injunction
against striking longshoremen and
their closed shop methods and dis
s< lved a restraining order which had
been in exi3ter.ee for some time. New
^?,ik merchants by the decision lost a
point in their light against the long?
The ruling followed a test suit
b. ought by Samuel Buyer & Co., elastic
g.'.rter manufacturers of 935 Broadway,
against William S. Guillan, genera!
agent of the Old Dominion Transporta?
tion Company; Martey Lacey and Will?
iam O'Neill, of the International
Biotherhood of Teamsters, Chauffeurs,
Stablemen and Helpers, and the Inter?
national Longshoremen's Association.
The suit charged the defendants with
con-piracy to violate the Federal Ship
pi i g act, the Sherman anti-trust laws,
' the Lever act, the penal and state
criminal codes, and alleged that long?
shoremen had interfered with inter?
state commerce by refusing to handle
freight hauled by non-union truckmen.
' The restraining order had been ob?
tained to prevent such refus;1.!-:.
Jvdge Hand's decision was based on
arguments of the Old Dominion com?
pany that the restraining order or an
j injunction would ruin its business.
The issues of the suit have not yet
come to trial.

Smith Will Confer Here
To-morrow With Prison
Officials on the Subject
OSSINING, Aug. 24.?Inmates of the
state prison here are again to print and
enjoy the columns of their newspaper,
The Sing Sing Bulletin, which was
suspended recently, owing, it is said,
to a difference between Warden Lawes
and Charles F. Rattigan, State Super?
intendent of Prisons.
Following a lengthy conference yes?
terday betwen the two ofriciais, at
which the policy of the newspaper, its
method of printing news items ?:nd the
advisability of retaining its former
editor in chief were discussed, Super?
intendent Rattigan made the brief an?
nouncement that Warden Lawes would
issue any statement he thought ad?
'"The warden," he said, "is running
Word came from Albany earlier in
tho day that Governor Smith had in?
terested himself personally in the fate
o fthe prison newspaper, which for
twenty-nine years has been published
monthly by the inmates, until its re?
cent shutdown by Warden Lawes. He
was quoted as saying that he would
hold a conference in New York to?
morrow with Mr. Lawes and Mr. Rat?
tigan and would take up the qv.e-ition
upon which the two officials seemed
to be divided. According to the Gov?
ernor. Mr. Rattigan objected to certain
articles in "The Bulletin" and had
found fault with one article in par?
ticular, which dealt with the case of a
man who was under paro'e from the
prison and who, it was said, had dis?

! cle that no effort had been made by
; the state authorities to find him. When
Mr. Rattigan's attention waJ5 called t?:
this he informed both the Governoi
and Warden Lawes that if proofs of
j the article had been first submitted tc
the Prison Department it would havt
been "killed." as the man's absence
from the state was due to the fac^
that he was now serving a sentenc?
in San Quentin prison, California.
Following the publication of thi:
article, it was explained that Mr. Rat
tigan had riven Warden Lawes th?
alternative of ousting the inmate edi
tor in chief, submitting all proofs o
etories to his department before pub
lication or discontinuing the pape:
The warden chose the latter course
asserting that when he assumed office

that he would resign before he woul?
