By Grant?ancl Rice
Just as the cheering citizens cf
i Brainerd, Minn., wore in the act cf
L applying the /uso to the big bonfire
to celebrate the world's series
victory of "Bullet Joe" Bush, their
esteemed townsman, a sudden noise
halted the flaming torch in midair.
This sudden noise, wafted by wire?
less through unmeasured spaces,
soanded for a moment as if a num?
ber of baseball bats were hitting
?mething hard and round.
And this is precisely what the
racket was that in the eighth inning
turned the torch of triumph into the
gray ashes of swift and unexpected
Yankee defeat.
For seven innings "Bullet Joe,"
the pride of Brainerd, kept the Giant
ttiack grazing in the ban*en lands
S5 it looked in vain for one sustain?
ing herb.
For seven innings in the presence
of 38,000 human beings, male and fe?
male, Bullet Joe and his famous Min?
nesota smoke had the Giants gasping
for air. At the start of the eighth he
was leading Art Nehf 12 to 0, with the
battle howl of Yankee fans ringing
pleasantly and sonorously in his ears.
And then, without any warning, the top
of the Gi>.nt batting order crawled
from the dug-out, climbed his broad
frame and clubbed Bullet Joe into
letbsl submission just a fraction of a
Kinute before Wait? Hoyt could reach
the ri?e pit in time to save the day.
End Came Suddenly
?.This ;.-' desperate, driving rush of
Ike Giants from thf? rim of defeat was
feeo:: - ??; ectaeular feature of opening
?hj. They came through the closing
stKteb just as the hazy October sun
?m ttakir.g back of the big stadium
?it?i flurry of bats that sounded like
?tarai of crockery being pushed down
{k?'?lar stairs. They ca^te from be
bjiiif-n they looked whipped to an
,itit*o finish with the same speed and
foamge that carried them in triumph
tough the National League after
their pitching stuff had buckled up
*t& broken down.
This sudden onslaught of the Giants
finie as one of the most dramatic
imshes ihat any world series war has
?ver known. Two runs behind, with
less than a furlong left to travel on
the way to the wire, the big bats of
Bancroft, Groh, Frisch and Mensel be?
gun to straighten out each ball that
Bush put over, and each drive left a
teil of fire behind as it scuttled safely
into outfield territory, with Giant run?
ner.? dashing around the bases on their
way to the plate.
Four successive hits had tied the
?ore at 2 and 2, with Frisch on third
and no one out, before Hoyt eased his
right arm into the program in a vain
attempt to save a waning cause. But
Hoyt arrived too late, as Young's out
Beld fly scored Frisen with the big run
of the afternoon, leaving the Giants
on top to the court of 3 to 2.

?Fans Far Out at Sea
I Listen In as Grantiand
Rice Pictures Giant
Victory, Play by Play
By Jack Binns
Radio Editor of The Tribune
More than a million persons "heard"
the New York Giants defeat the Yan?
kees In the thrilling battle at the Polo
Grounds yesterday. Every phase In
fche opening clash of this year's world's
series was broadcast direct from the
P0I6 Grounds through the ether over a
radius of SOO miles with complete suc?
cess by radio.
This op? h-making event was made
possi' ' >y The Tribune, with the co?
operation of the Western Union Tele?
graph Ccapany, the Westinghouse
Electric pr"l Manufacturing Company
and the if the two New York
j baseball
Throue ..t t? ntire Eastern sec?
tion of the court y and far out at sea
hundreds of thousands of listeners
heard Granted Rice, The Tribune's
sport expert, describe every play in
the great game. They heard, too, the
frenzied cries of the crowd in the
dramatic moments, and especially the
thunderous roar that broke loose in
the eighth inning when the Giants fell
upon the offerings of Joe Bush with
a vigor that could not be. stemmed.
Even Peanut Venders Heard
Out over the ether there came even
the cries of the peanut venders with a
surprising clarity that added a touch
of realism to the most remarkable
project ever undertaken in the annals
of communication. Not a single detail
of tue game was missed.
The rejnarkable success which
crowned The Tribune's enterprise is
attested by the tremendous number of
long-distance telephone calls received
at the Radio Corporation-Westinghou.se
radiophone station WJZ, at Newark,
N. J., while the gasne was in progress.
One of these calls came from Syracuse,
N. Y., the speaker declaring the recep?
tion was so good that he did not wa3?t
to lose any time in reporting the fact.
Practically every radio store in the
city had a loud speaker in operation,
and crowds jammed around the doors
to listen. In Newark the situation be?
came so bad in the streets that traffic
was congested and the police were" on
the verge of clearing the crowds from
the streets.
One man in Hackensrxck called up
and said there were more than two
thousand persons listening to his loud
speaker. Other renorts ca?ne from
Bridgeport, Conn.; Greenwood Lake, N.
J., and Southampton, L. I., showing the
magnificent distances that were being
obtained _vith loud-speaking apparatus.
One of the interesting features of
the enterprise was the situation at the
clubhouse of the Ninth Avenue Ele?
vated Railroad employees just outside
the Polo Grounds. The roof of this
building was jammed with spectators
who could see every detail of the game
on the playin'j field below. Over their
heads was the aerial of the receiving
set which regularly gives them enter?
tainment. Yesterday they were in the
unique position not only of seeing the
game, but also of hearing Mr. Rice
describo every play they saw sim?
ultaneously, despite the fact that Mr.
Rice's voice was carried to Newark by
two of the Western Union wires before
it was radiated through the ether from
How It Was Done
The transmitting microphone, which
carried such a realistic message to its
million listeners, was located behind the
field box next to the visiting players'
dug-out. Alongside the three stage
amplifier sat "OHN," the famous a33
nouncer ksiown .to WJZ fans, and next
i to him was J. C. Frazier, of the West?
inghouse company. Grantiand Rice was
on the outside of these two.
The first transmission berr?n at 12:3C
p. m. at a time when the upper stands
and bleachers were filled. Nick Altrock
the baseball comedian, was "doin^* his
stuff" in slow motion in the middle of
the diamond, and Mr. Rice told his
hearers just what was happening.
Th? first real thrill came when the
Giants cantered on to the playing field,
and the crowd sent up a rousing cheer
This was repeated shortly afterward
when the Yankees came on.
Then came the entry of Judge. K. M
Landis, General Pershlng, Christy Mat
thewson, Jack Dempsey and other nota?
bles, and their arrival was immedi?
ately snade known to the unseen audi?
Perhaps the most realistic thinp
broadcast was the announcement of th?
batteries for the day, which was clearly
picked up by the sensitive microphone
From that moment onward the air was
busy every second.
One radio fan, who called up WJZ
and reported his success in receiving
The Tribune's broadcast of the game
"It was in a way too realistic,
would hear the crowd let out a ter?
rific roar, and it seemed ages before
knew whether it was a single or a thre<
bagger that had been made or whethc3
the side had been retired. Of cou3-st
it was only a matter of seconds before
we got the announcement, but, th(
interest was so intense that it seemec
longer. Another thing: we were always
in doubt about the cheering, as bott
the Yankee and Giant cheers wen
about equal in volume so we didn '
know whether it was a hit or the battei
retired on a spectacular play until w<
got Mr. Rice's voice. It was a wonder?
fully successful broadcast!"
The widespread interest 3n The
Tribune's project extended even to tin

21 Aerial Bootleggers Flying
Between New York and Canada
From The Tribune's Washington Bureau
WASHINGTON, Oct. 4.--A fleet of
twenty-one airplanes is operating reg?
ularly between New York City and the
Canadian border, smuggling liquor, it
was learned here to-day froni prohibi?
tion Director Ralph Day, of New York,
who declared that the "bootleg ring"
through this means is "openly and fla-.
grantly" violating the law. He said
that both land and sea planes are being
"Land planes are operating from
New Yo*rk to Montreal, from where
large cargoes of whisky and other liq?
uors arc bring transported," he said.
"These are equipped with trap bottoms,
so that In case of arrest or contact
with prohibition enforcement officiais
the trap can be sprung and the con
traband dumped into the Hudson or
into the sea. As a blind, some legiti?
mate merchandise is carried.
"The seaplanes are operating be?
tween Montauk Point and Rockaway
and ships at sea, and are also equipped
so that liquor cai*goes can be dssposed
of in case of detection on the part of
officials. Another reason for the trap
bottoms is to prevent enforcement offi?
cers from seizing the costly planes."
The prohibition authorities in New
York are attempting, it was stated, to
combat this fleet with a smaller fleet of
three, and sorn/jtimes four, planes.
Their only weapon? are the automatic
pistols carried by the agents who go
with the planes. Officials at headquar?
ters here would make no comment as
to what success the prohibition air fleet
has had in dealing with th airline

Without Franchises; To

Mayor in Very Bad Humor
Directs Corporation Counsel
Post Haste to Devise
Means of Evading Ruling
All the municipal bus lines operated i
under the Hylan regime will be put!
out of commission by the sweeping de
cisi?n rendered yesterday by Justice'
George V. . Mullan, of the Supreme i
Court, on the application of a tax-(
payer for an injunction against the I
operation of such lines without com-|
plying with the law in the matter of |
franchises. There are more than j
thirty bus lines now operated by
private owners under the sanction of|
Mayor Hylan r.nd the Board of Esti-j
The busses will continue to run, it
was said last night, pending the formal
entering of the order, which may be
three or four days. They would then
have to stop unless an appeal by the
? "ity intervenes as a stay and keeos
them on the streets until the matter
is passe?! upon by the higher courts.
Municipal busses have been one of
the Mayor's pet projects. He was
greatly incensed when he learned of
Justice Mullap's decision. The Mayor
was sitting with the Board of.Estimate
on the 1?23 budget hearings. Cor?
poration Counsel O'Brien had just re?
quested an additional appropriation of !
$125,000 for salary increases for new!
members of h?3 staff.
Urges Fight Begun at Once !
"Never mind pleading any further
here," said the Mayor to Mr. O'Brien. !
"We will grant you your $125,000 for j
additional experts. Go back to your |
office immediately and see if there is I
not some way to restrain this court;
order. Hundreds of thousands of peo- !
pie will be seriously inconvenienced If !
busses in this city are stopped. It ?
would be an outrage if we didn't fight
it to the limit. Never mind arguing !
any more. Please go back and start
your ni?ht."
The Mayor inquired if Justice Mullan ?
was the man who had been a law part
ner of the late Mayor John Purroy
Mitchel, and when informed in the af?
firmative he merely grunted.
Commissioner Grover A. Whalen, of
the Department of Plant and Struc?
tures, who has supervision of the bus ;
lines, issued a statement deploring the
court decision and declaring that 200,- ;
000 passengers rode in the busses j
daily. He said the emergency existed ;
demanding the busses and their dis- ;
continuance would have a most serious j
effect upon the surface transportation
condition in the city.
"The health, comfort and conven- ?
ience of the public will be very seri- |
ously impaired and interfered with by
Justice Muilan's action," said the Com- I
missioner. "There is no doubt in my ]
mind that the railroad interests in this
city were responsible for the action '
being brought. It is a sad commentary ;
upon our city that we find ourselves so I
completely in the grasp of the rail- j
road interests in controlling the trans- j
portation system.
Lists Lines Affected |
"The emergency that arose by the
abandonment of certain surface lines ;
in this city wa? met by the establish- !
ment of an emergency bus system by |
this department, and during the period i
of time over which this emergency has ?
existed some forty-eight bus lines were i
established. At the present moment
Justice Mullan's decision will affect the j
operation and compel the discontinu
aire? of the following bus lines now in I
operation in the boroughs of Manhat
tail, Brooklyn, Bronx, Queens and Rich- ;
mond: I
Delancey and Spring Street, Avenue
C, Madison and Chambers Street. Eich- ;

Justice Mullan sets forth In his
written opinion that Edward Schafe!,
a taxpayer, is entitled to injunctive
relief restraining the city and its of- ?
?rials, from Mayor Hylan down, from
"appropriating the municipal funds
for the purchase, and operation of

erating, or assisting in or supervising
the operation of the privately owned
busses that are now being operated

in the convention room, was ably sec?
onded in his declarations to this effect
by Fred I. Kent, chairman of the com?
mission on commerce and marine of trie
association, who saw more reason for
i cancelling inter - Allied indebtedness,
however, than for lessening out of char?
ity the demands upon Germany.
There was a suggestion of* the ad?
vantage to the United States in aiding
European settlement by partial debt
; forgiveness in other speeches and in
; creasing cognizance that the time was
close at hand, if not already here, for
! active American participation in the
affair., of Europe.
Message From Harding
The American responsibility in this
! connection, particularly the respousi
? %ility of the banker and business man,
i was stressed not only from the mate
? rial but from the moral standpoint. A
! message from President Harding to the
j convention, read by the chairman as
? the morning session- opened, congratu
i lated the bankers on the way ::i which
I they had lived up to their responsibili
| ties in the past and urgently invited
1 them to a full share in obligations
; arising in "a like aggregation of the
social sense, the ethical ideal, the
moral inspirations and the best intelli?
gence, in order to promote the tru?
welfare of men individually and in
"It has long been my observation,"
said President Harding, "that the lead?
ership of the banking forces in thf
local community is ever effective and
devoted to community welfare, and the
same helpful relationship must be
maintained throughout the nation and
in the nation's outside'relations."
Conditions Sound, Says Mellon
A second message from the Admin?
istration, from Secretary of the Treas?
ury Andrew W. Mellon, expressed
appreciation of the co-operation of the
bankers in bringing the country
through the difficult period of post?
war adjustment.
"It has been the fixed policy of this
government since the war," said Secre?
tan* Mellon, "not only to balance its
budget at the end of each fiscal year,
but to provide for the gradual liquida?
tion and funding of the war debt. In
order to avoid spectacular refunding
operations, disturbing the country, the
Treasury has offered at convenient in
tervals during the last eighteen
months, short term notes which were
used to retire Victory notes and other
early maturing obligations.
"The response with which these of?
ferings have been met on the part ot
the banks and the investing public has
been reassuring, both as regards the
Treasury's plans for the refunding o?
the early maturing debt and also as
regards the soundness of conditions 3n
the country at large.
"It leads mo to believe that a
foundation has been laid for an early
and healthful revival of business along
normal lines."
Conference Is Urged
The closest approach to specific ac?
tion on the international debt problem
so far recorded at the convention came
in the adoption by the national banK
division^in the afternoon of a r?solu- |
tion, which read: ,
"Whereas, The liquidation of inter?
national war obligations and the res-,
toration of the economic order ot the
world depend upon profitable procluc
tionj and , !
"Whereas, the production o? new
wealth, the only permanent basis o?
world recuperation, is dependent upon
the uninterrupted flow of products and
material everywhere, be it

Day Resigns
As Dry Chief
During Probe
Six Local Enforcement
Agents Suspended on
Charges of Unbecoming
Conduct L Director Qui Is
Business Prompts Move
Haynes Lauds Efficiency of
N. Y. Officer, to Appoint
Successor After Election
Ralph A. Day, prohibition director
here, announced his resignation yester?
day, ? effective November 1. Almost
simultaneously six local enforcement
agents were suspended, as what is be
? lieved to be the first step in the revela
I tion of extensive frauds and graft.
? The agents are Henry Grucnwald, Abra?
ham Toplitz, J. W. Garsson, Joseph Fu
f.alo, George Fcnnolli and Ros3 Saver.
Toplitz is accused of accepting a bribe
of $1,000 from a physician. The
charges against the other? are as yet
no more definite than that of condu 3
unbecoming their ofMcr.
The resignation of Director Day, it
was said, Was in keeping with a stipula
tion he made when he accepted the
office November 3, 1021, that he must
be at liberty to resign at the end of a
year. He is a clothing manufacturer,
and does not feel that he should neg?
lect his business any longer.
His resignation was announced in
Washington after he had had a con?
ference with Roy Haynes, Prohibition
Commissioner, and Commissioner B'a'ir,
of the Internal Revenue Bureau, who
are said to have acquiesced most re?
luctantly in his decision to leave the
Successor After Election
Although Commissioner Haynes pave
out a statement in which he said that
it was "understood" that a uucccssor
to Director Day had been decided unon
some time ago, it was believed in well
informed quarters in Washington that
his successor would not be named until
after election.
Senator Calder, a candidate for re?
election, wanted nothing to do with
naming a man for the post at this
time, it was said, believing it impossi?
ble to avoid alienating one faction or
the other, and Senator Wadsworth con?
sistently has refrained from having any?
thing to do with prohibition matters.
Charles D. Hilles, chairman of the Re?
publican National Committee, and
George Glynn, of the state commit?
tee, are said to be equally reluctant
to interfere. The statement given out
by Commissioner Haynes follows:
Haynes Praises Work
"At no stage of the conduct of the
prohibition woik since the Eighteeuth
Amendment became operative has the
New York branch of the Federal pro?
hibition unit been on such a high plane
of efficiency as to-day. When Mr. Day
was importuned by close friends about
a year ago to accept the appointment
as Federal Prohibition Director o? the
State of New York he did so with great
reluctance, knowing that it would he
necessary for him to make many sacri?
fices, but because of his deep interest
in the national Administration and the
welfare of New York, and since there
was a unanimity of opinion among his
political and personal friends and the
officials at Washington that he was the
man best calculated to bring the New
York Federal prohibition office up tc
the-high plane of efficiency required
he patriotically made the decision tc

Mme. Lebaudy and Daughter
Marry Father and His Son
PARIS, Oct. 4.?Mme. Jacques Le?
baudy, widow ?f Jacques Lebaudy, the
self-styled "Emperor of Sahara,"' who
was killed by her in their Long Island,
N. Y., home in 1919. and Mme. Le
baudy's daughter, Jacqueline, had a
double wedding here this morning.
Mme. Lebaudy njarried Henri Sudreau,
a French detective, and Jacqueline mar?
ried Roger Sudreau, the twenty-year
old son of Henri.
Jacqueline Lebaudy and Roger Su?
dreau were married in southern France
last January. The couple returned to
Paris and, in March, Jacqueline disap?
peared. She was found in a private
nursing home in St. Cloud. The young
husband was refused permission to uee
Jacqueline, and the following day Mme.
Lebaudy and Jacueline left by auto?
mobile for an unknown destination.
Mme. Lebaudy said the marriage
was a purel" formal arrangement, en
tered Into to smooth over difficulties
in connection with thf Lebaudy for?
tune, which Jacqueline was to inherit
on attaining her majority or when she
married. Jacqueline at the lime was
seventeen years old.
Later Mme. Lebaudy filed a suit in
Paris to annul the marriage, charging
Henri Sudreau was making efforts to
obtain control of the Lebaudy fortune.
In June advices from Paris said young
Sudreau had requested the French
courts to grant him a divorce. In July,
when the application for an adminis?
trator for the Lebaudy estate came up,
the court ruled that the action must
await the outcome of the marriage an?
nulment proceedings.
In August, Paul E. de Fere, a New
York attorney, said to be counsel for
Mme. Lebaudy, was declared to have
stated that he had been advised that
Jacqueline and young Sudreau had
withdrawn the annulment and divorce
proceedings and were living happily
together in Furia.

over the session t^day, in Accordance
'with the a-rangement by which the
Aiiiei gei'.ra's will rotate ;n occupy?

Keynote of Day "Peace"'
The keynote of to-day's proceedings
was "pcRCo." The only serious hitch
was on the question of the occupation
of Thrace by Allied d<*tnchm-,ntf*. JB
Isn*ct Pasha, tin Turkish Nationalist ?fl|
representative, insisted on ths piotc?- ^B
t;?n againft ;?? Greek flank attack on
the Turkish occupying forces. Th.* Al?
lied representatives pointed oui thj
difficulty of their acquiescence becuusc
of the small forces .-it their commimd.
The Turks withdrew their demand for
the evacuation of Thrace in eight days.
The attitude <?? (?recce and th* Greek
army as represented by Color??.] Plas
tiras was the. on!;- cloud bo peace i'i the
sky. Piastiins le'l everybody kr.ow that
the Greek army was ;? real factor, and
that its new chiefs were determined
to resist every attempt to reinstite
the Turks in Thr^e. The AlHod lead
ers were inclined to share Ismet
Pasha's apprehens;on that Greece still
was to be reckoned with.
The Turkish conditions reJcirrd to
in connection with the probable agree?
ment ave as follows:
1. Formal guaranties concerning the
evacuation of Thrace.
2. Establishment of Allied garrisons
in the larger towns of Thrnee.
3. Occupation of Thrace by Turk sh
Nationalist gendarmerie.
4. Transfer of the civil administra?
tion of Thrace to KemalVst function?
6. Evacuation of Thrace within r.-.ht
day by the Greek army.
?. Occupation of the westerly line of
the Maritza River by Allied trocp-.
Conciliation thus far has m.irkod the
conference between the Allied geneiah
and the Turkish representatives at
Ismet Pasha, who speaks for Mus.a
pha Kemal Pasha, leader of the Na?
tionalists, and also for the Angora gov?
ernment, has announced that the gov?
ernment accepted the Allied proposals
in principle. He took occasion to ex?
plain at the opening of the sessions
that the Turks "had no intention of
creating incidents with the Englis't."
At to-day's meeting Ismet asked for
a settlement of the Turkish adminis?
tration of Thrace and requested that
Thrace should be freed from all Allied
control, but he felt that at least one
month would be required to effect the
transfer. He aleo suggested that there
should be an Allied covering fort? on
the Maritza river and that a neutral
zone should be created west of that
Ready to Meet Greeks.
The Allied generals explained that
the proposed administrative measures
must ali be subject to the approval o?
the governments concerned. Ismet then
expressed a willingness to meet the
Greek delegates.
The absence of the Greck'ttatreacnta
tives from yesterday's meeting: made
little dilTcrence, because the matters
under discussion were of a general
nature and had no immediate connec?
tion with the attitude which the Greeks
?night assume.
At the opening of the proceedings on
Tuesday, General Harington, ~<?m
mander in chief of the Allied for-cea,
?:uid that the objects of t*# conference
were three-fold: First, to obtain a
cessation of hostilities; second, to f1;?c
??a lino in Thrace behind which the
? Greek troops would be invited to with?
? draw, to arrange the detail? c.' evacra*
;tion and to transfer the admi istration
to the Turks, the plans of which would
?be submitted to the powers third, to
i pave the way for a future peace con?
The Turks at first showed apathy
with regard to the details of t_e ad?
ministration of Thrace until they had
tested the sincerity of the Alli?e' de?
sire to restore Thrace to them. It wa?
then pointed out that restoration de
