I he head of the Soviel govern ; ment would be the first to state thai neither soldiery nor the nationalism that soldiers protect, had any place in' | the ultimate ideal of communism. | As an economic program the Soviet ; experiment rested on the workmen and ?the peasants. Between these two :: classes there remained to be worked out a system of direct exchange which would dispense with money and the I machinery of capitalism. While this machinery was in nrnr<,sa 01 construction it was importa \\ (both classes remain at work , me i products of the industry of the one wero indispensable to the continuing lite of the other. Of the two classes i the peasants continued a< work until | they were starved for the products of industry and the last grains from their bins had rone to the city. We are in a great shoe factory in the city of Moscow. For two years this factory has turned out only enough shoe--, to supply the workers. To-day its output is practically nil. It is now used not as a factory at all but as an adjunct to the new system of education practiced by the Depart? ment of Public Instruction. There is in the factory a half million dollars' worth of machinery. To-day that ma? chinery is idle. Around each piece. a group of hi?h school boys is ex? perimenting, discussing together the character and uses of," the machinery or topics more wonted for boyhood.

Raw Material in Plenty; Guiding Spirit Is Lacking I remember this scene when a little later I am in Samara and see the great loads of hides which are being piled up as a consequence of the un? usual slaughter of cattle pad horses. The Russian people need shoes, the hides are waiting for a market. And yet, a valuable shoe factory is being employed as a laboratory for the in struction of youth. Long after the industrial workman had ceased to do his share the peasant and the railroad worker continued to support labor., and thus indirectly to support the Soviet experiment. The peasant cannot run his farm indefi? nitely without fabi'icated materials, clothing and plows. The railroads can? not run indefinitely without, sending the locomotives and cars to the repair shops. All the peasants and railroad men have asked was that in return for the service they rendered the indus? trial labor of the country should con? tinue to supply the conveniences and necessities that belong to its domain. These labor has not supplied. Fabri? cated materials have disappeared. The repair shops have been closed for lack of labor. Save among special classes in which the vital spark seems still to glow, notably the government officials, the railroad men and the peasants, indus? try in Russia has been followed by in? ertia, labor has been succeeded by lethargy. The joy of production has expired. Cynical distrust has taken the place of creative faith. Conditions such as these cannot arrive without some deep cause. Whatever may be the pretensions or the accom? plishments of the government we 3nust look for this cause in the govern? ment's policies, pointing to these for the collapse of that industry and co? operative effort by which alone the structure of society can hang together. The disappearance of industry from Russia is less a matter of mechanical disintegration than of the death of the (Continued on paijt) f?ur) Bars Rouge and Lip Stick In Jersey Parole Bureau Girls in State House Threaten to Appeal to Gov. Edwards on Personal Liberty Issue Special Dispatch to The Tribune TRENTON. April 7.?Until to-day Mr' Cornelia Meytrott was merely the assistant director of the Division of Parole of the. Department of Institu? tions and Agencie? of New Jersey. But now she has admired new importance. Her individuality has asserted itself, however, at a r'.ii of incurring the ever? lasting disregard of the five hundred voung women employees of the State House. Mrs. Meytrott has ruled that the lip stick and rouge box won't be welcome hereafter in the Division of Parole of the Department of Institu? tions and Agencies, and is understood to. have the support of her immediate superior in the matter. The young women employed in the department feel that the lip stick and the rouge box are necessary to the Department of Institu? tions and Agencies, and that the depart? ment can't, function without them. The order of Mrs. Meytrott, it is said, has provoked the open hostility of young women in all other departments, and it would not be surprising if stenograph? ers? and secretaries combined forces and went right to the Governor about it, it being known that Mr. Edwards is a (rreat believer in personal and all other branda of liberty. It seems that there's no objection to the young women roug? ing and lip-sticking on the street, so long as they are sufficiently pallid once they come beneath the State House roof. 6 Die in Air; Paris-London Liners Crash 3 Passengers, Pilot, Me chanic,Cabin Bov Killed as "Pullmans" Collide! in France; One Survivor ^ N. Y. Man and Bride Among the Victims! Christopher Bruce Yules! Homeward Bound When | Accident Occurs in Fog TARIS. April 7 (By The Associated j Press).?Six persons were killed to-day when two airplanes on the Paris-Lon- ! don aerial express route collided over the village of Thieulloy, seventy miles north of Far'?-, and crashed to earth. The dead are: Christopher Bruce Yule, a New York exporter, anel his wife, who were homeward hound by* way of England i in the French machine. M. Bouriez, another passenger in the French craft. Aviator Mire, pilot of the French ma? chine. Mire's mechanic. Cabin boy of the English maehine. The entire personnel of both ma? chines, except. Pilot Ft. E. Duke, of the English plane, met death either in the crash or in the? flames that, followed it. The French airplane left Le Bourdet, in the environs of Paris, at noon for London. The British airplane, which left Croydon, in the London area, this morning, carried mail and was manned only by a pilot. Duke, who was seriously injured, was till unconscious late to-night. The i cabin boy in his machine wore a suit adorned with brass buttons. Mr. and Mr. Yule arrived in France on hoard the steamer Empress of Scot | land, which sailed from New York in I February on a tour. 1 wo women ; friends were to have accompanied the Americans to London, but changed their minds at. the last moment on ac? count of the stormy weather prevail ing. The friends were Mrs. Titus Berst and her daughter, Lois, of Erie, Fa. The British machine had only been in use three days on the express route. It belonged to a new company operat? ing a Paris-London service. The accident occurred during a fog, the pilots seeing each other too late to ?ivoid h collision. Five persons from the machines were dead when inhabitants of the village of Thieulloy arrived on the scene shortly after the crash and the sixth victim was dying 'Christopher Bruce Yule, who with his wife was among those killed in tha wreck, was New York manager for the Boston tirm of Joseph Middleby jr..

April 7 i By The Asso? ciated Tress).?The British airplane which collided with a French passen? ger liner in France to-day carried only the pilot, Duke, and the cabin bo?t, according to authoritative information in London to-night. The British machine, was atie of a ' number operated daily in the London Paris service for pasengers, mail and goods by three British and two French companies. The average number of planes making daily trips each way! is six, anel the total number of pas- ? sengers daily usually averages about twenty. Yesterday there were twenty two passengers both ways. During fine weather there are sometimes as many ] as forty. The first machine in the daily service usually leaves London with the morn ing newspapers about, 7 o'clock, and is followed at intervals by others until 7 ! o'clock in the evening. They all leave j from and arrive at the Croydon air- ? drome, where, in case of fog, those equipped with wireless apparatus are j thus guided on their coursa. The crash is said here to have been ! the first of the kind on the commercial air route between England and France. For the British machine it was its first trip under the new management of a company which inaugurated its service. last Monday. An official of the com? pany said the machine had been in the j Paris service for more than two years, : but that it was loaned to the company ) by the Air Ministry, owing to the de? layed delivery in the new company's j own machines. The capacity of the machine was eight passengers and 500 pounds of baggage.

Lloyd George arrived at the (Jare du Nord at 4:20 o'clock and found Poincare' wailing there for him. The French : Premier boarded the train and the con ference went on while the car was : being switched to the Mediterranean station on the other side of Paris. Before (3 o'clock Lloyd George had started on for Genoa. Baron Hardinge, Rritish Ambassador to Paris, and Louis Barthou, chief of the Trench Genoa delegation, also took' patt in the conference. To Follow Boulogne Program It was agreed by the premiers that their Genoa program, as worked out in their meeting at Boulogne six weeks ago, should he followed out in detail. This involves exclusion of the German reparations questions and other mat? ters affecting the Treaty of Versailles from the Genoa discussions. After the conference Lloyd Gorge, in an interview, said he was pleased with the complete accord between Great. Britain and France. He --aid the I French Premier had assured him ' Fiance would do all in her power to make the conference, a success in its efforts to reconstruct Europe. He said that complete harmony between the British and French delegations was now assured. In French official circles it, was ex? plained that to-day's conference had been arranged at the request of the British Premier, who' was a little wor? ried' over France's attitude as ex? pressed by Poincare in the Chamber of Deputies and in his letter of in? structions to the members of the French delegation. Therefore Lloyd George wanted to be reassured that France would not bolt the conference suddenly and thereby nullify the de? cisions reached there. Premier Poincare refused after the conference to comment on the discus? sion, but he expressed satisfaction over the complete agreement which had been reached. Soviet Issue to Arise Early Special Cable to The Tribune Copyright, 19C2. N'etv TorK Tribune Inc. GENOA April 7. Foreign Minister v Schanzer, of Italy, told the Tribune correspondent that when he was in Lon? don last week Premier Lloyd George asked him to offer a motion at. the. Genoa conference next, week to re.cog nize the Russian Bolsheviki. He added that he had refused this request be? cause he felt that such a motion would not be courteous to France, but that as soon as the conference opened he believed the question would be raised and discussed. The neutral nations whose delegates conferred this week at Berne have ad? vised the Italian government that be? fore they will assist, in economic recon? struction measures in Europe the Con? tinent must disarm.. The Italian press is furious at the French because the Paris government is planning to operate a large press bu? reau at the conference. The news? papers charge that the French appar? ently are going to try to use the con? ference, for political propaganda pur? poses. Reds Object to Rail Tunnels The foreign delegations arriving here are giving the government some con? cern with their dissatisfaction over the living quarters assigned to them. Georg Tchitchcrin, Bolshevik Foreign Minister, and others of the Moscow delegation had an argument with the Italian police this morning over the fact that the train which brings them daily from Rapallo, where their quar? ters are, to Genoa, must pass through seven tunnels. The Reds demand that heavy guards be placed at all these tunnels to prevent any attempt? at train wrecking. A palace was assigned to Premier Lloyd George.

J., at dusk yesterday afternoon and at ! tacked Mrs. Amelia Cartheuser, twenty ! two years old, of North Field Avenue, '? West Orange. Mrs. Cartheuser, the daughter of a I former town official of West Orange, ? was unaccompanied. There was no one else on the street and her screams were unheard. She finally succeeded in beat? ing off her assailant with an umbrella. The man fled into a nearby woods. The neighborhood was aroused at once and the West Orange police were called. After beating through the woods for more than an hour the police I found a young Japanese who said that he was Taita Tsji, twenty-six years old, of 341 Main Street, East Orange. He made no attempt to resist arrest. I According to the police, the young man's shirt was torn and he had a cut over his forehead, which they say was caused by Mrs. Cartheuser's umbrella. He was iaken to the West Orange I police station, where he was questioned ! by detectives for more than an hour. j He refused at first to answer any of I their questions. Shortly after P o'clock he was ar j raigned before Recorder Meeker, in 1 the West Orange police court. In giv Ing his pedigree he ?aid that he was a gyaduate of George Washington Uni? versity. I also studied for a time at Prince? ton University," he said to the Re? corder. "And what is your plea to the charge of assault and battery?" he was asked. "We will come to that," Tsji replied ; suavely. "I am a writer for the raaga \ zines and the moving pictures. I also j write for the newspapers." i "I fail to see the connection," inter ? rupted the court. "You will see in a minute," rejoined [ the prisoner.

Police Shoot at Thieves, Kill Attorney; Enright Given I492 More Men Board of Estimate Votes Increase and Commis? sioner Promises to Rush Training of Recruits Wants 6 Big Cars To Chase Bandits Clamor of Civic Associa? tions for Protection Rises From 5 Boroughs In response to an aroused citizenry clamoring for better protection of life and property. Police Commissioner En right requested and received from the Board of Estimate yesterday authoriza? tion i.o add 1,192 men to his-force. He also asked for six high-powered cars for the pursuit, of automobile ban? dits. Action on this, however, was held up until to-day. The Commissioner announced thai every available? man now on the Civil Service list, about SOO, would be put in training as soon as their eligibility was e ei'tilied. "As soon as I get them," said the Commissioner, "I will put the whole batch through the training school, and ! have them out on the sidewalks, in new ! uniforms doing actual patrol within two months." In presenting his request, to the board, Mr. Enright revealed that of the 11,500 in the Police Department, only ; 1,600 were engaged at any time in ac? tual patrol duty. For the first time he i made an. implied admission as to the prevalence of unusual crime conditions , in the city when he said: "It is aeff ! evident that our effective patrol force lof 1,600 is utterly inadequate." i alls for Co-operation With inore policemen, unrestricted ?co-operation among officials charged with the prevention and punishment of I crime and a more precautionary atti? tude on the part of the public, he said i he could reduce criminality here to a 'minimum within six months. j Of the 1,192 extra men it appears, ; however, that only about 765 will be I used for tour duty, the remainder, ac I cording to the Commissioner, to be I used for traffic and other purposes. ?With three shifts, this will actually add but 260 to the effective patrol j forces. With the 200 extra men ob? tained from a. re? urn to the nine j platoon system, the number of men i on patrol will be brought from 1,600 i up to 1,750 about the middle of June. ? Mr. Enright intimated, however, that I with the additional men granted by the ! Board of Estimate the ten platoon sys j tern may bo shortly restored. Later he j asserted that this might not be ad? visable until conditions became normal. Mr. Enright went over the ground at a luncheon of the. New York Press Club, where he complained that, "every? body hollers and no one helps." He insisted there was a reduction in the number of felonies here so far this year of 19 per cent, as compared with a similar period in 1917. The number of such crimes, he said, was about thirty a day, or about 900 a month. "Why water this every day with your tears?" he remarked. Issues Self-Help Pamphlets Further evidence that, the Commis? sioner has become thoroughly alive to the situation was shown in the dis? tribution by him of thousands o<" pamphlets advising the citizen on "how to guard against crime." These pam? phlets were heaped up at station houses and may be obtained free. There was a hurriedly called confer? ence of all the city's police inspectors in Chief Inspector Lahey's office last night, at which there was a general discussion of the prevalent conditions and the best methods of dealing With them. The inspectors were given to understand, it was learned, that the de? partment chief demanded perfect patrol from the men on the force, and that lieutenants, captains and other sub? ordinates must be strictly instructed to that end. District Attorney Banton announced that he would have all criminal cases from now on placed at the head of the preferred list and trials pushed with the utmost speed. The public outcry against unchecked lawlessness continued to gain momen? tum with protests from two more busi? ness organizations.

Miss Booth indicated that the news would prove equally surprising to other Salvation Army officers and said that Mr. Speyer could not continue his ac? tivities with a "wet" organization and remain as head of a drive of the Sal? vation Army, an organization that is, has been and will continue to be unal? terably opposed to liquor. A spirited rally under the auspices of the Association Against the Prohibi? tion Amendment was held Thursday ight at Carnegie Hall.
