j Judging by the proclamations of (he
; Russian government the social revo

three groups?the worKmen, the peas?

of soldiers in these groups was a
\ transition expedient, made necessary
by the .situation ?n Europe and the
military threat menacing the new

; ment would be the first to state thai
neither soldiery nor the nationalism
that soldiers protect, had any place in'

| 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.

It is now used not as a factory at all

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

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.

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?
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

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

LONDON. 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 and Poincare in an hour's
conference on boa ici the British Prime
Minister's private railroad car. 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.

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?

Reds Object to Rail Tunnels
The foreign delegations arriving here
are giving the government some con?

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. He told the Italian au?
thorities that he had been so much

Masked Japanese Attacks Girl,
Seeking "Color" for New Movie
A masked Japenese armed with a
j club sprang from behind shrubbery on
j Benvue Avenue, West Orange, N. 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

"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

i "I fail to see the connection," inter

He also asked for six high-powered

up until to-day.
The Commissioner announced thai
every available? man now on the Civil

"As soon as I get them," said the
Commissioner, "I will put the whole

two months."
In presenting his request, to the
board, Mr. Enright revealed that of the
11,500 in the Police Department, only

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.

He's Out, She Declares
Financier's Friends Explain
Personal Liberty Is Issue
With Him, Not Liquor
Commander Evangeline Booth, head
of the Salvation Aarmy, expressed
amazement last night when she learned
that, James Speyer, the banker, who was
recently named chairman of the Sal?
vation Army's $500,000 campaign for
funds, is one of the vice-presidents of
the Association Against the Prohibition
Amendment and an active worker in the
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. It was said
last night that Mr. Speyer, who is re?
ported to be at Hot Springs, Va., had
invited a number of friends to tho
Speaks Her Mind
Miss Booth expressed herself re?
garding Mr. Speyer's connection with
the association after she had invited
newspaper men to her headquarters
at 122 West Fourteenth Street, to tell
them of her fourteen weeks' trip in
this country and the Hawaiian Islands.
Upon being informed that the name of
the head of the banking fii-m of Speyer
& Co. was listed as a vice-president of
the anti-prohibition association on its
letter heads. Miss Booth forgot for the
time being the subject, of her travels.
It was not until she had finished her
comment upon what she termed very
surprising news that she got around to
"I had no idea," she said, "that Mr.
Speyer was anti-prohibition, and I
really had no idea that he had been
chosen head of our drive. I feel that
there must be a mistake somewhere.
The Salvation Army is against liquor
in every form."
She said that the banker had always
been a good friend and supporter of
the Salvation Army.
It was said by a person answering
the telephone at the home of Mr.
Speyer at 1058 Fifth Avenue last night
that Mr. Speyer is a "very prominent
member" of the anti-prohibition move?
ment and that he is at the same time
enthusiastic in his work for the Sal?
vation Army. "Mr. Speyer is going
to be chairman of their drive by all
means," it was said.
Personal Liberty Is Issue
Mr. Speyer's -name is listed as one of
the twenty-one vice-presidents of the
Association Against the Prohibition
Amendment. One of the other vice
presidents in discussing the associ?
ation's activities last night, said that
the association was not interested in

Some press reports from London to?
day announced that the British gov?
ernment was prepared to grant equal
opportunity to American nationals in
all mandated territories given to Great
Britain under the Versailles Treaty,
but officials of the State Department
said they had no confirmation of such
a sweeping decision. It was said,
however, that theje was nothing to in?
dicate that the American contention
for "equal opportunity" in mandated
territories would be seriously opposed
by any of the Allied governments, and
confidence was expressed that the
American position soon would be
formally recognised.
