Army Flyers to
Use Big Bombs OnOld Alabama! _ |,000-Lb. Missiles Expect* j ed lo Send Battleship in Bottom in New Test! planned by. Air Service j Battle Conditions Asked; Ship in Motion, Powder in' Magazines, When Craft j Is Turned Over by Navy' WASHINGTON, Aug. 5 (By The As- j socistvd Prc?s>. ? An independent j bombing enterprise against naval craft ? I', beir.g planned by tho Army Air Serv? ice. With the old battleship Alabama ls a target and using missiles up to 4,000 pounds in weight, the army flyers hope to add a new chapter to the inter service controversy which recently re? sulted in destruction from the air of several former German war vessels. Acting Secretary of the Navy Roose? velt has announced that the Navy Do- j partaient is dismantling the Alabama trA will be ready to turn her over tc the land and war warriors about September 1. Efforts will be made to simulate actual battle conditions when the ves? sel comes under tire. The ship will be (r. sea-goir.g shape, and the army asked that she have steam in her boilers and powder in her magazines. Even if the army men are unable to obtain raido control equipment for her, they hope to have the ship in mo? tion, probably under tow, when the airmen open their attack. Army plans call for all phases of air attacks at sea. Everything from the 300-pound bombs, similar to those first rained on the German dread? nought Ostfriesland and to missiles double the size of the 2,000-pounders which sent her down will be employed, It was said, and in addition smoke and gas bombs will be hurled at the Alabama's decks. Several new project? of the Chemical Warfare Service are to be tested and penetrative qualities of the gassea will be measured by means of the ventilation system of the ship. The air service also plans to attack the Alabama with torpedo planes. In this phase, naval airmen may be asked to participate, as army development of the air torpedoes is not regarded as fully satisfactory. The Alabama is a much older ship than was the Ostfriesland, but pro? tected by armor varying from 16^fc to 9 inches in thickness as against 11% to 6% on the German craft. The protective decks are about the same. Woman Tells of Poison In 3 Mysterious Deaths Kolze Housekeeper Is Taken From Questioners on Writ of Habeas Corpus ? Special Dispatch to The Tribune CHICAGO. Aug. 5.?Startling revela? tions were being made to-day by Mrs. Mary Demmer regarding the three mys? terious deaths at Schiller Park, when her attorney secured a writ of habeas i corpus and took her away from the questioners acting for the state. Mrs. Demmer formerly was house? keeper for Fred Kolze, wealthy farmer and owner of large tracts of land. This was after his wife had suddenly died. Then Mrs. Demmer's husband died, also suddenly and mysteriously, and still later Kolze himself went by the same route. Post-mortems on the three bodies showed the presence of large quantities of arsenic. Mrs. Demmer told of the presence in the Kolze house of a number of white powders, and of threats by Kolze to choke her if she ever mentioned that there was anything strange in the death of his wife. She also said: "It now ap? pears that Kolze had something to do with the death of my husband, John Demmer." "Did he ever try to give you any of these powders?" "Yes, once, when I had a headache, but I refused." Mrs. Demmer expressed the belief that Kolze not only poisoned her hus? band and his wife, but that he killed himself by the same method. The case took on larger aspects to? day, when the Coroner ordered the ex? humation of Fred Kolze's mother. It ?Iho is said another body, that of a person not yet mentioned in the case, will be exhumed and examined for poison. In response to question?, Mrs. Dem? mer said she was in love with Kolze, but her affection did not become pro? nounced until two or three months after his wife had died. -?? .?'?"?' - "Kid Cop" Routs 4 Rowdies Attacked While Taking Girl Home, He Captures Two Patrolman Ettore Caspallano looks as though he might have a year or so yet in high school, but in reality he is at? tached to the Clymer Street police sta? tion, Brooklyn.

Borah Demands Cut In Army and Navy For Quick Economy j 100,000 Men Sufficient, He Insists: Counts on Public Opinion of Three Nations to Compel Disarmament Frinn The Tribune's Washington Bureau WASHINGTON, Aug. 5.?Speaking in the Senate to-day in favor ?f a resolu? tion which he offered for the reduction of the army to 100,000 ?nen, Senator Bor??h, of Idaho, called for economy. H?a said to increase taxes at thi_ *.ime would be almost a disaster, urged that the troops be brought home from Ger? many, declared for a halt in the con? struction of part of the battleships now planned and for construction of air? planes and submarines, and expressed the hope that public opinion in this country, Japan and England would force the adoption of a disarmament ? program at tne forthcoming conference. Calling attention to the recent ad? monition of the Secretary of the Treasury that expenses must be cut if taxes are to be reduced, Senator Borah asserted that only by reducing the army and navy could there be reductions of costs which would be left as a benefit to the taxpayers. He said he "had never supposed the diplomats would affect disarmament, but he did have hopes of an aroused public opinion in England, Japan and the United States. Senator McKellar expressed the hope that *public opinion here and abroad would help bring about dis? armament. In opening his remarks, Senator Borah said it would be deplorable to fail to reduce taxes. "We can cut the army and the navy, and if we are not willing to do that we may just as well say to the country that we shall do exceedingly well if we keep the expenditures and the taxes at the present point and that there is no hope of reduction," he continued. "We reduced the army during this session of Congress to 160,000 men, ? but in mv opinion it would be per? fectly safe to reduce it to 100,000. ? If we do so, we can certainly cut ex i penses from $50,000,000 to $70,000, 1000. If we can reduce the commis i sioned officers so as to save from $25, 000,000 to $30,000,000, here would be a saving of $100,000,000 or $150,000, 000. "I venture to say that if we main? tain the army at 150,000 enlisted men and 14,000 officers and increase taxes thi3 year we shall have a much smaller Republican membership in both bodies of Congress after the next election than we now have. "There is nothing which is now of so much concern to the people as to know whether or not they are going to get any relief from these ever-increasing expenditures. "We are expending about $400,000,000 upon the navy, and I think since the experiment off the Virginia coast we are expending at least $240,000,000 of it in a way that will never add any se? curity to the people of the United States. The bombing test demon? strated that the battleship is practi? cally obsolete." ? ? i Labor to Raise 25 Millions National Campaign for Russian Relief Is Launched Representatives of the Central Trades and Labor Council of Greater New York and Vicinity, the United Hebrew Trades, the Workmen's Circle, the International Ladies' Garment Workers' Union and other labor organ? izations decided yesterday, at a meet? ing at 41 Union Square, to raise $25, 000,000 for the relief of the needy in Russia, particularly children.

To Help Builders Of Homes in City Conference of Manhattan and Brooklyn Financiers Pledges Assistance After Report Made by Curran Following the report made by Henry L. Curran, Prosident of the Borough of Manhattan, on the $100.000.000 of investments made in home building in the five boroughs since the passago of tho tax exemption clause of the hous? ing bills lust February, comes the announcement that a group of Man? hattan and Brooklyn financial institu? tions have started a fund for the mak? ing of mortgage loans. In his report Mr. Curran called at? tention to the urgent, need of money ) to finance new housing construction, I pointing out that under the limita- j tions contained in the* law construc? tion must start before cold weather in order to take advantage of the tax exemptions provided. The Title Guarantee and Trust Com : pany announced yesterday that at n conference of bankers at its offices ? $2.900,000 had been pledged. The con I j'orence considered what could be done to assist tho builders of moderate priced homes who have their opera? tions under way, but who are in need of mortgage loans in order to com? plete them. ; Fresent at the conference and sub? scribing to the fund were the New York Life Insurance Company, the l Bowery Savings Bank, the Bank for i Savings, the Home Life Insurance Com j pany, the United States Trust Com ; pany, the Equitable Life Assurance So? ciety, the Farmers Loan and Trust Company, the Brooklyn Trust Com? pany, the Brooklyn Savings Bank, the Bankers Trust Compay and the Central Union Trust Company. These institutions subscribed from $100,000 to $500,000 each. The fund will be made available im? mediately to builders in Kings and Queens counties, where, according to Mr. Curran's reports, plans have been filed for housing to accommodate 13,541 families. Other builders, who are anx? ious to start similar.operations in time to bring their work within the timo ! limits of the tax exemption, and who are seeking to provide homes for per? sons of limited means, also will receive financial assistance. In addition to Mr. Curran's report, the recent statement made by Secretary of Commerce Hoover that the source from which sufficient funds for housing could be expected was the institutions holding the savings of the people, in? cluding trust companies, postal savings and insurance funds, was considered by the conference. Purdy Bares Drive on Tenement House Law Landlords' Agents Accused of Harassing Poor and Also Misrepresenting Cotulitions Lawson Purdy, chairman of the tene? ment house commute? of the Charity Organization Society, charges in a pamphlet issued yesterday that associ? ations of landlords owning tenement houses are endeavoring, through paid agents appearing before the committee of the Legislature, to have the tene? ment house law of 1901 abolished. The usual arguments advanced by these agents, Mr. Purdy says, is that tho Tenement House Department of j New York is "coddling" the poor by ob- ? taining for them surroundings far bet- ' ter than they need or are able to ap? preciate, housing of a kind that they were unused to in their original homes in other countries. Mr. Purdy says that because of the latitude permitted tenement house owners during the war abuses of the law have grown up which have led the owners to seek many amendments and to annoy their tenants in tho hope that they will move out and leave the prem | ises available for reletting at higher rents. "We have no hesitation in asserting," Mr. Purdy's pamphlet says, "that at the present time the force of the de? partment is inadequate to keep up with the complaints received, not to speak of making the original inspections of all tenement houses which the law re? quires." Mr. Purdy concludes by saying that public sentiment should be aroused to combat these assaults on the law. 17 Cited in Prison Inquiry Michigan Officials Named in Indictments MARQUETTE, Mich., Aug. 5.?Sev? enteen indictments, involving former and present officials of tho Marquette State Prison, were returned to-day by the grand judy, which haa been inves? tigating the institution's affairs since July 13.
