The Tribune's Sporting Ex?
pert to Address Great?
est Audience That Ever
Heard One Man Speak
Wire Firms Aid in Plan
Hearty Cooperation of Sev?
eral Companies Makes
Great Project Possible
By Jack Binns
For the first time in the history of
] America's national game the world's
j series will be. broadcasted over the
radiophone direct from the playing
ground. The story of each game will
be toi din graphic detail by Grantland
Rice. The Tribune's nationally known
; sport expert. He will talk to the great
1 est audience ever assembled to listen
! to one man, as it is expected that more
I than 1,600,000 persons will hear his
I voice.
This epoch-making event has been
? made possible by the co-operstion with
?The Tribune of the Western Union
! Telegraph Company, the Westinghouse
! Electric and Manufacturing Company,
the Radio Corporation of America and
the officials of the two New York base?
ball clubs. Another important factor
assuring success to the undertaking Is
the consent given by the other broud
I casting stations in the metropolitan
sr^a to forego their own schedules in
' order that the series may be sent out.
The actual broadcasting will be from
?the Wtctinghouse-Radio Corporation
I station WJZ, at Newark, N; J., and
I the voice of ''Grant" Rice will be car
| ried then* by two specially arranged
wires of the Western Union Company,
direct from the Polo Grounds.
Will Heer Crowd, Too
Not only will the vast audience ol
radio fans be able to follow the gam?
?play by play?through ihe eyes ol
Mr. Rice, but they will be able to heai
the cheering of the crowd and, occa?
sionally, in the tense moments of th<
game may actually hear the impact oi
some player's bat against the bat
when a hit is made. They will alsc
get a pictured description of the vos'
crowd which attends the game as onlj
The Tribune's spoil expert can give it
This story will be heard over a radiu."
of Rfc least 800 miles from New ori
I City, and will be picked up by shipi
at, sea as well.
The ci-gineering problems connect?e
with the undertaking have airead;
been solved in the successful broad
tasting of two Leonard lights thi!
year, as well a.? when the symphony
^concerts were broadcast from the ata
-xUurn of the Colln'ge "'of the Cifv o.
New ork.
Slightly different prob!?ms exist ii
the present case, however, and the en
gin?ers of the Western Union urn
Westinghouse companies are now en
gaged in measures successfully to copi
with them.
The project o<" broadcasting th
series was road? possible through th
hearty co-operation of J. C. Willivei
first* vice-president of the Westen
Union Company, whose orgnniaatioi
hns sole rights in the playing ground!
Mr. Williver readily gave his eonsen
, in order to meet vhe wishes of <h
radio fans throughout the Eastern sec
tion of the country, and also becaus
he Is desirous of learning how success
fully the concerted voices of such
j vp.at concourse of people can be broad
cast. He also realized the importune
of the service that would be given i
the detailed story of the games direc
from the grounds.
His company has released two spe
cial wires for this s.ervico between th
Polo Grounds and Newark, and the en
ginee.rs are now busily at work in
stalling the appartus to carry the voie
with sufficient power to actuate th
radio transmitting equipment at W.Ti
This work is being done under th
supervision of E. R. Shute, opcratin
engineer; J. J. Welch, general supei
intendent of traffic, and G. W. Fleming
general supervisor of press service.
WJZ Is Overhauled
The station at WJZ is also receiyin
special attention for the undertakinj
and will be pressed to the last unit c
efficiency. It is expected as a resul
of this general overhauling that .fou
times its normal distance will be co\
cred during the series, and there i
every prospect that Mr. Rice's voie
will be heard as far as the Mississipp
while there is no doubt that he. will h
heard throughout the entire easier
section of the country.
The detail work of connecting up t?
telegraph wires with the radio appi
ratU8 is being attended to under tl
supervision of C. W. Horn, suporii
tendent of raido operations, and J. '
Fraser, chief telephone engineer, of ?
Wesinghouse Company, who came hei
from Pittsburgh for that purpose.
The actual operating details whf
the games commence will be in tl
hands of Charles B. Popenoe, who hi
charge of WJZ, and H. E. Hiller, rad
operotor there. The other details wi
he taken care of by William H. Easto
of the Westinghouse Company.

will co-operate with Mr. Rice in tl
broadcasting, and are aiding in pe

There can be little doubt of *he fury
! of the storm that the Aquitania passed
* through last Sunday, a dny out from
i Cherbourg. when Captain Sir James T.
i W. Charles, skipper of the ''uiiarder
! and commodore of the fleet, declared
I it to he, upon his arrival here yester
j day, the worst he ever encountered in
his forty-two years' experience as a
| seafaring man. For hours the huge
? vessel ploughed her wny through the
I mountainous sens against a heavy
; northwest gale with lier engines throt
| tied to a speed of about four knots,
i just enough to keep her under control
? while tons of water were pounding her
i sides.
Though she wan pretty well battered,
j the big Cunnrder may be said to have
I come smiling through the orden!. She
; steamed up the bay so jauntily that
even those who bad heard in advance
, of her fight found nothing awry In her
; superstructure nor any outward evi?
dence among passengers and crew that
she had been through a bad time.
Storm T'nuKUal for This Season
Captain Charles said he believed the
storm was the same cyclonic hurri
I cane, unusual for thin time of year
'that wrought damage in Bermuda and
then swept, in a northeasterly direction
j across the Atlantic.
"tt was shortly after the church
! services Ins! Sunday," the captain said
I "that, there, were indications of an
approaching storm. At 6 p. m. a stronp
? southeast; gale was blowing which
: gradually incrcpscd in velocity until
! midnight when the wind veered to the
j west, still increasing in force. The
[barometer registered 28.2?,, the lowest
| point I have soon it. register sinet
? March, i KM, when it touched 27.H?
; as I was crossing the North Atlantic
I on the Lueania.
"The gale continued with hurrican?
; force until 8 o'clock Monday morning
I when it abated somewhat, but th<
j rough seas were encountered unti!
^Thursday. During The height of the
storm several of the windports on I
j deck on tho port And starboard rides
j-wero ??mashed and a door to one oi
j the ?passageways on. the same deck'wri.'

Two Washed From Freighter
"During the early hours of Mondai
we received a radio from the- Cardif
Hall stating that she had lost sebera
of her hatch covers and that the sec
ond mate and a seaman were washei
overboard in trying to repair the dam
age. A Japanese, freighter also sen
out an SOS asking for assistance afte
j her rudder had been smashed."
Every passenger on the vessel va
i anxious to praise the officers and crev
?for their seamanship, particularly th'
! stewards, who were assiduously en
i gaged bailing out and mopping uj
some of the staterooms on the hurri
cane deck, and in nddition ?pacifyini
n few of the passengers who were, oi
! the verge of hysteria. After nine o
I the ports on the starboard side of th
ship were, smashed early Monday morn
ing many of the passengers in thei
night, attire went to the lounge b
spend the remainder of the night
About thirty-five of the passenger
tried to sleep in the lounge. Few sue
cecded in getting any rest, but the;
were constantly being reassured by th
stewards, who worked incessantly fo
thirty-six hours at their various tasks
Charles E. Peters, of Tulsa, Okla., ;
millionaire oil man, who had to flc
1 with his son from their Raeburn suit
on the hurricane deck when the wate
poured through the ports and showore
them with glass, described the occai
j as a Rocky Mountain sea with hundred
' of Pike's Peaks. When he left hi
room, he said, he waded through wate
ankle deep and could not return, t
his ?uite until a day later.
The same water that broke into th
stateroom of Mr. Peters smashed tw
of the thick windows protecting th
! hurricane deck and carried with it
i strip of about thirty feet of copin
over these same windows, as well as
large panel protecting the expansio
! plates of the vessel on that deck.

By Boyden Sparkes
NEW BRUNSWICK, N. J., Sept. 30.?
Spurred by Governor Edwards, the offi?
cials of Middlesex and Somerset coun?
ties resumed their investigation of the
Hell-Mills murder to-day with some?
thing like enthusiasm. It wa* just two
weeks almost to the hour since the find
inc- of the bodies when the detectives
started out to search for Matthew
Sulitz, who grazes his cow on the old
Phillips farm.
Matthew, who eats garlic as a vege?
table niid has a wide, luxuriant mus?
tache, was brought to the office ol
Prosecutor Strieker about 1:30 this
afternoon. It was 6 o'clock before he
was taken back to his home, which if
half a mile from the spot vhere thf
murdered clergyman and choir singet
were found. Before returning Matthev,
to his peaked-roof house, which is
I about the size of a Fifth Avenue, coach
the county detectives got a ladder, en
tered by an attic window and ransacked
the place, for what reafjon they would
not say.
Matthew Professes Ignorance
The Interrogation of this man at
this lato date is characteristic of th<
entire investigation. Like the autopsj
j performed yesterday, it should havt
j oCurrod?.the day the bodies were founc
i because Matthew, in return for oer
mission to graze his cow on the farm

says her rftisbandn ever goes out a
night. Neighbors satisfied reporter
that be did not possess a weapon b;
recalling ' that when the man wantei
to shoot a sick dog some time ago h
had to borrow a gun. Nevertheless
the detectives became interested ii
Matthew to-day.
.Reporters - standing in the corrido
outside the office of the county de
toetives waiting to learn .whether a;
arrest had been inane w^rc cautione
?by. Detective ' TottofV, of Somers'e
County, that they,had better go dow:
i stairs.
Totten Cryptic to Reporters
? "on might hear something yo
' wouldn't, like," he said.
It was assumed he referred to th
manner of their ' interrogation c
Sulitz. About six o'clock the man wa
returned to bis home.
As far as could be learned to-da
the state troopers sent here by Go\
ernor Edwards are going to work ir
: dependency of the investigators worl
i ing for Strieker and Beekman. Sei
g?ant Lamb, frank Spearman an
Henry Dickman, the troopers assigne
to the case, visited the farm, but thet
is littie hope of even a Sherlock Holme
'finding clues there now, since the plac
has been visited daily by hundreds c
motorists, some of whom have com
from New York.
Dr. E. I. Cronk, New Brunswick
j health officer, pointed out to-da;
j though, that a chemical analysis of th
I soil on which the bodies lay whe
i found ought to show whether the
I died there. He said that much bloo
j must have come from the wound i
Mrs. Mills's throat, even if the slas
! was made after she had been shot 1
death. He said the cut was from le
to right, and in his opinion was tti
work of a strong man -ising a raze
or a sharp knife.
.Says Slayer Stood Over Pair
"The assailant, in my opinion," sa1
Dr. Cronk, "stood above the coup
when he shot them."
"It has been learned that the ou
side of the lenses of Mr. Hall's spe
tacles were spattered with blood. Th
is responsible for an official theoi
that a bullet that passed through D
Hall's head struck Mrs. Mills, and th;

It was learned to-day from an a
thoritative source that the pockets <
the minister contained letters fro
Mrs. Mills which established, to tl
satisfaction of the officials, at lea.?

This is the information that comes to
The Tribune as to the. result of con?
ferences which Premier Poincare had
this afternoon with Lord Harding?, the
British Ambassador, and Count Sforza,
of Italy. It is believed that Lord Ha?
dinge has cabled the Franco-Italian
view to his government.
The gravity of the situation in the
Near East caused Poincare to cancel
his trip to eastern France, where he
! was ?cheduled to participate in two
patriotic meetings to-morrow. He de?
clared he was unwilling to take the re?
sponsibility for a few hours' ?e'ay jn
doing anything that might prevent an
Aiiglo-Turktsh conflict..
Surprised at British Attitude
Official circle? here do not disguise
their surprise at the announcement of
the London newspapers that if there
should be a British ultimatum ?<? the
Turk>. or military action in the N'ear
East as the Outcome of Mustapha
Kemal's refusal to withdraw from the
Chanak zone, Italy and France would
be informed, but no1 consulted. This.
more than anything- else, caused Poin?
care to call off hi? week-end trip and
request a meeting with Lord Hardinge.
The British Ambassador explained
thai he was not authorized to make
any official communication relative to
! his government's intent ions, but no
dOwbt General Haringtou had been jn
! structed to exact, with brief delav,
?evacuation of the neutral /.one by

The committee, which ?includes the
mayors of the five principal cities in
the region, will communicate immedi
I'ately with E. E.' Loomis, president of

the striking shopcrafts workers on
these lines.
In urging these, meetings the com?
mittee, which will be known us th<
emergency committee on coal. Will
stress the need for meeting the coal
shortage by maximum production al
lthe mines and efficient transport?t ?or
service. The miners are ready and an:c
ious to work, after their five months
strike, and the striking shopmen art
in a conciliatory spirit, asking an "hoir
'orable peace."
Hope to End Controversy
For the timo being the projected alli?
ance between the miners' union and th?
shop mechanics will be held in abey?
ance and the efforts at settlement oon

Although at the. outset of the meet
ing the railroad managements wen
criticized for their attitude in refusinj
to meet the strikers, a more concilia
tory tone was adopted later. An at
tempt to send telegrams to Presiden
Harding and Attorney General Daugh

U. S. Supreme Court to Hear
Craig Contempt Case To-morrow
The question as to what constitute?
contempt of court is to be put up to the
United .States Supreme Court-for de?
cision to-morrow by Edmund L. Moo
ney, counsel for Charles L. Craig,
Comptroller of New York City. Mr,
Mooney will file a petition for a writ
of certiorari to review the ruling of
the Circuit Court of Appeals for the
2d District, vacating a writ of habeas
corpus in the contempt proceedings
growing out of th? Comptroller's criti?
cism of Judge Mayer's policy in con?
nection with the traction receivership
three years ago.
If the Supreme Court denies the pe?
tition, Comptroller Cvaig will have to
serve out the sixty-days' sentence in
the Essex, N. J., County jail,
which was imposed upon him by Fed?
eral Judge Julius M- Mayer. This ap?
peal to the highest court in the land
is the last step to which Mr. Craig's
counsel can rcaort to keep the Comp?
troller out of prison- The taking into
physical custody of Mr. Craig's person
becomes automatic if this latest legal
eflort fail?.
It will be recalled that when Judge
Mayer appointed receivers for the
Brooklyn Rapid Transit Company and
other line? the Corporation Counsel
asked that co-receivers acceptable to
the Board of Estimate be- named, so
I that the city's interest might be pro
! tec ted. This Judge Mayer refused to
j do. Nine month* later, in a letter to
I Public Service Commissioner ?ixon,
? Mr. Craig took occasion to pass Btrlc
! tures on the court for its action. Mr.
j Craig was thereupon cited for con
! tempt of court, tried- before Judge
! ?<tayer, found guilty, 'sentenced and
! taken into custody by the marshal.
The four judges who have sat in te
| view of Judge Mayer's finding divided
? evenly on the question of its correct?
ness. In Mr. Mooney's last legal effort,
! to upset the ruling of the lower courts
j it is his main contention that no con
i tempt was committed when in the
? Comptroller's act there was no possi?
bility of the "obstruction" of justice a?,
