"We all "work hard for the good of

"The street showers give the chil?

The opportunity was seized by Hylan
to explain to the foremen that he
e-pjosed higher gas rates and increased
carfares. He added he intended to
"keep up a relentless fight for the in?
terests of the common people."
Mayor Hylan also received a dele
. cation of patrolmen, who asked that
the ten-squad system be restored in
the Police Department. They com?
plained that under the present nine
i;quad system they are able to get a
day off only every twenty-seven days.
Frank J. Priai, Deputy Comptroller
and head of the Civic Forum, an or?
ganization of city employees, explained
that the nine-squad plan had been in?
troduced when the crime wave was at
its height. Previously the patrolmen
had a day off every week.
The Mayor said he sympathized with
their desire to see their families once
?a week and would consult with Com?
missioner Enright about restoring the
old system.

doorbell, and that even if it was a new
one it ought to ring all the better. He
pressed the button. He preyed it
again after about two minutes. Then
he put his thumb against it and leaned
there for several minutes.
New or old, it was a good bell. Mr.
Tellegen cftuld hear it ringing. It
rang and rang. Not a footstep sounded
from within, howeverj although once
or twice Mr. Tellegen thought he de?
tected another such movement of the
curtains as had caught his eye when
he bounded up the steps.
He gave up the doorbell as an ac?
tivity that mi?ht be entertaining to
the servants but was distinctly un?
profitable so far as he was concerned.
He withdrew with as much dignity bb
he could muster and sought the nearest
telephone booth. He called his home
and got an immediate response.
The servant who answered said that
she was sorry, madame was out. No,
she did not know where she had gone.
As to when she would return, she
could not say.
That was the best Mr. Tellegen could
do by telephone. He is said to have
maintained his siege of the house for
several days, making the Kitz-Carlton
his base and moving against the dwell?
ing at frequent intervals, day and
night. His assaults were all unsuc?
cessful. He has not set foot within
its threshold, nor has he heard his
wife's voice.
Although it wa3 suggested in the
letter that he received that arrange?
ments could be made for him to obtain
his clothing and other belongings if
he would call at the office of Guggen?
heimer, Untermyer & Marshall, Mr.
Tellegen has not called there. When
he decided to abandon the siege, he
called on his own lawyer and Mr.
Stsinfeld assured him that it was de?
sertion whether his wife ran away and
left him or whether she stayed home
and left him.
The house from which Lou Tellegen
is barred is leased in his wife's name.
It was sold last February and the new
owner, whose name ?was not divulged,
is said to intend to make alterations
and occupy it himself. The lease docs
not expire, however, until October,
"Obey" Omitted at Marriage

Only a few months before that the
opera singer had said that/ an artist
could not afford to marry, adding: "I

rimony, locked them and thrown away
the key."
That phrase may nave recurred to
Lou Tellegen as he tried vainly to fit
his own key into a strange lock on his
own door a few days ago.
Marriage a Problem, Diva Says
Only about a year ago, in an article
inspired by Zola Forrester's The Dan?
gerous Inheritance, Miss Farrar had
reiterated her doubts concerning the
advisability of marriage for an artiste.
This time she was of the opinion that
the career of the artiste who married
inevitably must be shattered, as her
natural love and regard for her hus?
band would triumph over the more or.
less artificial characteristics born of
her art. *
"A groat singer who has been married
but once has said," Miss Farrar wrote,
'Marriage is a very serious problem
and doubly so for the woman artiste.
Too often masculine domination in?
fluences the complete artistic inde?
pendence. The woman acquiesces to
save her emotional strength and from
the sense of her own necessity for
masculine understanding and protec?
tion, though she may not acknowledge
her capitulation as such.'
"I venture this to be true."

Hardships of General Navarro
MADRID, Aug. 5 (By The Associated

ings and hardships endured by General
Navarro, commanding the Spanish
troops at Melilla, and his soldiers since
their enforced retreat, which , began
July 22, before superior forces of Moor?
ish rebels, are being related by the
newspaper La Libertad.
General Navarro, when the attack
was launched, had to' fight his way back
into the fortified positions on Mount
Arruit, resisting- the ferocious attacks
which continually were thrown against
him by the rebels. When he recaived
orders to retreat from the south toward
Melilla, with 6,000 men, Navarro had
to cut his Wfy through a cordon of
rebels, who ware determined to wipe
him out, and on every inch of ground
over which he retreated he lost men
and material. When he reached Mount
Arruit, Navarro had only 2,000 men
left. Water was lacking. The nearest
well to the fortifications was 500 meters

The troops had held out for eleven
days against great odds, taking refuge
first in a church and finally in a nearhy

only after the attacking tribesmen had

The defeat of ?he Spanish forces
in northeastern Morocco, where they
have been resisting heavy attacks by
rebellious tribesmen, has been ex?

say that Zeluan, as well as Nador,
both of which have been looked upon
as keys of the Spanish position before

LONDON, Aug. 6.?Fewer than 200
survivors of the garrison at Nador

wounded. ef
With the loss of Nador, Zeluan and
Mount Arruit, Spain's possessions in
the region disappear, except for Mel?

Between 1,500 and 2,000 square miles
of territory thus are lost to Spain.

"There is at the same time a reaction

England. Thift fact empnasizes the
power that the dominions now enjoy
and the influence their spokesmen
wield in the councils of the empire.
The practical end of this under?
standing will receive its real test
when the disarmament discussion
opens in Washington. It was the
original view here that the ground?
work could be laid in a series of pre?
liminary conferences, but Washington
did not sympathize with this opinion,
and consequently the disarmament con?
ference will take place in the presence
of representatives of all the nations
invited by President Harding and
Secretary of State Hughes.
The influence of the dominions' is
expected to be strikingly apparent in
these discussions, for they are de?
cidedly interested in an Asiatic set?
tlement. Naval appropriations also are
a highly important issue with them.
The Westminster Gazette says to?
day on this point:
"We look to the British Empire and
the dominion governments, as well as
the British government, to giv a clear
lead to the world against the doc?
trine of the mailed fist and acknowl?
edge that the pursuit of safety by
armaments is a myth. The day when
any one power can, by virtue of its
army and navy, declare itself unas?
sailable and independent of its neigh?
bors is past, and the power which is
most likely to prosper in the world
is that which clearly recognizes this
fact and shapes its course according?
"The world presently will witness
a most crucial experiment between
one kind of national development and
another. On one side is Germany, de?
feated in war, stripped of her arma?
ments and shut into a limited terri?
tory in Europe. The other is Great
Britain, victorious in war, still heavily
armed and extended all over the
Warning to the Allies
"Germany has her indemnity to pay
off, but she has no armaments to main?
tain, no Mesopotamia to drain her re?
sources, no foreign adventures to dis?
tract her energies, no liabilities out?
side her own territory and nothing to
distract her from the intensive culti- i
vation of her own soil and industry.
What an industrious, able population
of from sixty to seventy-five millions
may do under these conditions may yet
astonish the world, and moEt of a'.l if
we and other nations drain each other's
wealth competing in armaments and
scatter our resources and energy over
vast spaces of the earth, which we are
unable either to govern or to exploit.
"Seriously, it will be open to doubt,
if the victorious nations start again in
the old way of mutual antagonism,
whether they will not have handed the
fruits of victory to the defeated enemy
and whether in thirty years' time he
will not have built up an industrial
and political power and restored the
prosperity of his people in a way which
will be the envy of them all."

willingness to attend. The American

Strike of Musicians Ordered
Is Expected to Go Into Effect
in Theaters To-night
The radical element in the Musical
Union of New York last night ordered
a general strike, which is expected to
go into effect to-night, involving many
leading amusement houses.
The union, which was recently ex?
pelled from the American Federation
of Labor, has been torn with internal
dissension during recent months, and
the impanding strike indicates that
radical influences in the organization
have prevailed.

BERLIN, Aug. 6.?Three hundred
thousand children in the famine
stricken regions of Russia are being
cared for by the. Soviet government,
according to the Novi Put, the Bol?
shevik organ at Riga. Hundreds of
'thousands, probably millions, of others,
however, are utterly without care. This
is one of the many frightful facts re?
garding the present situation included
in a statement by Foreign Minister
T chit cher in sent out to all govern?
ments. While seeking to deny the ex?
istence of grave chaos in the famine
regions, the Tchitcherin statement re?
veals in detail the extent of the mis?
fortune which has befallen Russia.
Tchitcherin makes no mention of the
six million starving Russians advanc?
ing in the direction of Moscow, looting
and robbing on the way, which was ad?
mitted several days ago by the Bol?
shevist official paper Izvestia. Tchitch
erin's note says, in part:
"The commission of the Central Ex?
ecutive Committee for the relief of the
famine-stricken provinces has acknowl?
edged the existence of famine in the
provinces of Astrachan, Tsaritzin, Star
atoff, Sainara, Simbirsk, the Tartar re?
public and Tchuvash territories, as well
as in Birsk, Belebeisk, Yarensk, Ur
shumsk' and Malmishk counties of Uffa
Province and Serunsk, Crashokok and
Shaisk counties of Viatka Province and
Mari territory. In the ten provinces
involved the harvest is destroyed, as a
result of the drought. At best the har?
vest will not be more than 2 to 15 per
cent of normal.
"The population of these ten prov?
inces amounts to approximately 18,
000,000. In order to feed the rural
part of this popufation at least 41,
000,000 poods of seeds are needed be?
fore September 15. Because of the
lack of complete details regarding the
harvest in other parts of the country
it is now impossible to determine how
much of this Russia herself can sup?
ply. There is nothing left of the for?
mer reserves in the stricken prov?
inces and supplies from other prov?
inces are possible only in a limited
