The? cave man now belongs to the ?forgotten ages and Yale took another ?t*tep in the* same direction this after? noon when 78,000 souls saw Harvard Irin by the score of 10 to S in a thrill? ing battle, where Yale got the first ..owns and Harvard got the points, where Yale had the power and Harvard had the mind. Ysle made eleven first downs to Har hrard'a three and Harvard made ten joints to Yale's three. And therein ?rot* have most of the story of another fftulldog defeat, closing out the bitter? est year the Blue has ever known; Owen's Run Beats Bulldog From the two army corps of blue ?and crimson there was one Harvard man who carried the victorious tide in Harvard's favor by one of the great? est runa of the year. For, after all, ?bove all technique and strategy, it was the fifty-seven-yard dash of George Owen, a brilliant star in his final bat? tle, that lifted the conquering Crimson oat of the dark valley and dumped the bartered Bulldog into the grotto of despair, The first period had been under way only a few minutes when Charley O'Hearn deep m Yale territory, lifted a long spiral against the wind, a spiral that sailed on beyond midlield until it finally fluttered into Hammond's out itttretchod hands. But the. ball bounded .? Harvard'?. 40-yard line and jost as the first sweep of a Yale cheer swung out across the field George Qven, quick of brain and quick of foot, on? of the greatest natural com? petitors of all titne, swept up the ball and started on 1) is way. Two Blue tackier? dived for him at Harvard's 45-yard line, but both lost the fast-running, swerving Harvard back, who picked each opening with watchful eyes as he swept on by mid fteld. Here Owen swerved again slightly to the left, eluding another quivering grip as he finally cleared the last defensive line with only O'Hearn in the road. Owen rushed forward ?with the speed of a track star, straight for the waiting O'Hearn as if he meant to run him down. But. at Yale's 80-yard lino he suddenly halted, zit. ragged for a brief moment, side? stepped first to the ri(*ht and then to the left and with O'Hearn completely thrown off guard the fast Crimson back whirled on by into the open plain without a Yale man in front of his march. Vor a moment it seemed as if Owen was to cross the goal lino in this one long march, but at the last ^moment Hulm?n, of Yale, cut in and ?railed him on the. three-yard tine. For fifty-seven vards the Crimson ?tar had worked his way through the scattered Blue defense, and while he was halted only a stride from the pal in this one bewildering dash he had more than offset Yrale's total driv? ing power for the rest of the game. Crimson Horde Scent? Victory As Owen, closing out a great career, passed mid-field the entire Harvard delegation came to its collective feet with greater racket than Bedlam ever knew in its noisiest hour. ArfU as he finally planted the ball within a brief stride of Yale's goal line and it be? came evident then and there that Har? vard once more was moving to the up? land country, the din became so ter? rific that an artillery blast would have passed unnoticed. Two Harvard plunges netted only a yard, but at this criti? cal moment Charley Buell, the Har ^d captain, was rushed to the field '? '>place of Lee. Buell hag developed the habit of ?ending Owen through the Yale de? fense. For him this was no new story, jt was an old, old tale and force of habit is one of the winning factors of the competitive field. As the little Quarterback stepped into the job there '?'?'a? no longer any question as to what ?"Right happen.

Aerial Tactics Feature Hard Fought and Spectacular Battle; West Pointers Turn Tide in Last Period Game Ends in Darkness Smythe's 50-Yd. Sprint Into Middie Territory Gives Soldiers Winning Score By W. B. Hanna PHILADELPHIA, Nov. 25.?In ' the daylight and in the twilight the Army football eleven blazed a trail to two touchdowns this afternoon in the an? nual game with the Navy and won by a scoro of. 17 to 14 in as gripping a game as has been played in moons and moons. The Navy's three-year-long grip on \ the Army-Navy championship wus torn away with a victory brilliantly j and splendidly won. But, be it said on behalf of the seagoing losers, they waged battle as brilliant almost as did the winners and within three points of being as successful. In the last live minutes of the final period dim, vaguely outlined figures carried on the struggle to the bitter finish, for by that time dusk for some time had been a forerunner of night, and the blue and gold of the Navy and the black and gray of the Army were being absorbed into the blend of night. The game began at 2:30 and finished at 5 o'clock, but into those two hours and a half, save for the rest period, was crammed a game of surge and sweep and aerial boldness and fireworks such as no other game this year has at? tained. In quality of play, bold and well executed tactics and changes in fortune und outlook of "lhnost bewild? ering frequency every other contest of the iOason was surpassed by this one. Both Use Aerial Attack It was a game in a thousand, clearly limned out on the gridiron background, and the aerial game was king. If you were to pick out features you would choose the forward passing. It was the able execution of this plav, resorted to i often, and on the Navy side with no ! conventional regard for zone, that rendered a lead, no matter which side held it, far from a guarantee of vic? tory. Territory meant nothing, by which is . meant that long distance to the goal . line, instead of being a hardship and a bugaboo, was> merely an inspiration. Forward pussing, long runs and the running ganie bore by no means an in? significant part in the whirl and Bwirl of the game. In fact, two well schooled hard playing and resourceful eleven?, often and quickly devised the means to shoot from midlie.ld or beyond to the 110-yard zone in less time than it takes | to toll it. I Seldom is a game played with less hesitation in choosing plays and with \ such ^confidence on each side. There ? was scoring in every period but the j first, in which the Navy had the better of it, and in which both sides were i close to a touchdown. The Navy in the j second period crossed the Army's goal I line. The Amiy in that period made a i field goal by placement, from the 45 i yard line, a noble lift. The Army made I a touchdown in the. third period, and | the Navy retaliated with one in the fourth period. Then, with the scoring 14 to 10 i against them, the Army battlers, watch j fui as hawks, as confident, as ever of victory, rallied to the support of Smythe, the most conspicuous figure on the field and its most vivid performer, and flung a mobile wall around him when he caught a punt in his own ter? ritory and ran it fifty yards to within close scoring distance. Smythe's Run Stellar Event That run told the tale. Smythe first pointed to his left and almost impinged on the side line. He wormed his way through a pack of Navy men, cleared them and sped to his right. He crossed the field on the bias and outpaced sev? eral pursuers there. His mates took out a few, and the one lone Navy war? rior who stuck like a leech?it looked like Conroy in the dim light?flopped the flying Smythe eleven yards from home. One moment a Navy victory had beckoned, the next moment defeat stared the midshipmen in the face; that was just typical of the game. The ! long run did eventuate in a touchdown | ana victory, but there was hard and episodic battling before it became a fact accomplished. The Aiiny buckled into it eagerly and made no headway against the Navy's line, which was on its toes to a man. Then an offside penalty set the soldiers back. They next lost on a forward pass. The Navy sifted through and threw the passer. But there was still some ammunition in the arsenal. Smythe, the versatile and reliable, threw a forward pass to. White, his nimble aid. That planted the ball back on the Navy's 6-yard line. The Navy line was assaulted again. The Army piled into it wedge-like and pellmell and came tumbling back, for the moment disintegrated by the vio | lence of the Navy defense. Tl*jen came the diagonal pass, of wh"ch the Army ! was so fond, a pass, which when it I worked, and it did often, found two ? men slanting off from the wings, one j of them acting as a decoy. There was guile in the -working of this forward pass. Wood took the ball from center, naoc a bluff to scoot back with it, to pass it, handed it to Smythe, and the latter elusive and artful gen? tleman sent it on a short oblique to Dodd out at the left. Dodd caught it five yards from the goal line, and, with (Continu?! on r??B? twenty) The Tribune To-day Part I?-The news of the doy? Four pages of sports. Part II?Editorials and feature?.

Actually, the controversy between the two sides concerns only about 26,000 building trades workers?the bricklayers and two rival unions of laborers?but in reality the lock-out will throw nearly all of the 126,000 wage-earners in the building trades out of employment, since virtually all the construction jobs now under way in the city cannot proceed without the bricklayers. This means there is to be an almost complete cessation of building: con? struction throughout greater New York, the value of which is estimated at between $75,000,000 and $100,000,000. It was declared last night ?by repre? sentatives of both sides that only a most unexpected turn in events could prevent the lock-out, and nothing- by way of a peace move was mado yes? terday. Each Side Blames the Other "The bricklayers have taken 310 ac? tion which would warrant the employ? ers to alter their plans in any particu? lar," said Christian G. Norman, chair? man of the bor.rd of governors of the Building Trades Employers' Associa? tion. "The bricklayers will not deviate in the slightest from the stand they have taken with regard to the employers," declared an official o? the Bricklayers' Union. Repr?sentatives of both sides con? tinued to issue statement? blaming the other side for the lockout, tho em? ployer:; holding that an internal dis? pute, among the unions forced them to declare for a -shutdown, and the? union lradc": placing the responsibility on the employers on thj& contention that the latter',-; object is to force th.j build? ing- trades laborers into one of .the rival unions declared to be favored by the employers. The underlying causes of the con? troversy date back for a considerable period, with ramifications extending ,mto situations shown through expos? ures of the Lockwood committee and the system created by Robert P. Brin? dell in the building trades unions. . As tho result of these exposures the American Federation of Labor decided that the organized labor part of the situation needed a speedy land thor ough house cleaning. For this purpose, John Donlin, presi? dent of the federation's building trades department, was sent to New York. He found such a state of affairs as to cause him to recommend revocation of the. charter of the Building Trades Council, with which the. federation complied, on the ground that the coun? cil was in control of a group of busi? ness agents?the Brindell system??ind not in the hands of officials closely representing the rank and file, as pro? vided in the federation's rules. New Union Then Formed Then Mr. Donlin began a reorganiza? tion movement of the building trades unions, succeeding in winning over sev? eral 01 the largest and most powerful from the council, among them the bricklayers. A part of the lhove was the formation of a new union of labor? ers under charter of the International Hod Carriers, Building and Common Laborers' Union of America, with F. Paul A. Vaccarelli at the head. Mean? while, the council gave its support to a dual laborers' organization known as the Independent Bricklayers' Helpers' Union, headed by G. B. Dioguardi. A fight for membership ensued be twen the two, with the employers, it was charged, aiding the "independ? ents. Vaccarelli proved an able organ? izer. Out of about 18,000 building trades laborers in New York, he suc? ceeded in getting more than 0,000 into his organization, with prospects of further inroads into the rival union's membership. This was accomplished in the face of constant friction with the employers. Just what precipitated the move has not been made definitely clear, but re? cently the Bricklayers' Union, acting in support, of Vacuarelli's organization, sent an ultimatum to the Mason Build? ers' Association, which is a unit of the Building Trades Employers' Associa ; tion, declaring that the bricklayers i would, after November 16, refuse to work with any materials handled by members of the "independent" union. "Shooting" in Schools Is Ordered Stopped Ett/inger Says He'll Call Police if Necessary to Halt Fly? ing Paper Clips William L. Ettinger, Superintendent of Schools, issued an order yesterday forbidding young ideas to learn how to shoot by using teac'..er3, class moni? tors or unpopular pupils as targets.* rhe old system has developed expert marksmen, but it mu3t go, Superin? tendent Ettinger says.

Special Dispatch to The Tribuna FRENCH LICK, Ind., Nov. 25.?Mayor John F. Hylan, accompanied by (irover A. Whalen, Commissioner of Plant and Structures, of New York City, hit the trail for New York this afternoon, go? ing via Indianapolis. . They will arrive at 5 o'clock to-morrow afternoon. The Mayor finished up his vacation here with another golf lesson, Charles F. Murphy, chief of Tammany Hall, and several of his activo followers standing by and giving instructions. The Mayor seemed to catch some of the fine points of the game rather quickly. He hit the ball hard and as? sured the gallery that he was driving them out as well as Murphy. He and I Murphy posed before the camera in their golf clothes. They posed singly and with other groups, so cordial was the party and go invitingly friendly the atmosphere. Murphy went on with his game when the Mayor completed his lessonj but he took enough interest in the Mayor's departure to hurry in to see him be? fore he finished luncheon and to talk with him alone for several minutes. No Coolness, Say Friends When the train left several of the Murphy group were on hand to wave Hylan and Whalen a friendly farewell. The bare f-uggestion that there was a coolness hero between Hylan and | Murphy brought denials from their | friends, who pointed out that they have | been together frequently most of the week. The Mayor apparently made no head? way with Murphy or his lieutenants if he had any hope of lining them up for William Randolph Hearst for the Presidency. The statement was made to-day that Hylan did not come here with the thought of bringing Murphy and Hearst into 'he samo group politically und that the Presidantial as? pirations of tHe New York publisher j and ox Al Smith, Governor-elect, re ! ceived scant mention, although it ap? peared from inquiries which some of | the Tammany politicians have made here in the last ten days among leaders of the Democracy of Indiana and other mid-West states that they are feeling out the sentiment and are very hopeful ? of something being dono in this sec I tion for Smith. If Hylan was laying the lines for Hearst it may be said that (the Murphy contingent was quietly and cautiously looking to the future for Smith. Calls Klan a Political Mask Hylan telegraphed his secretary this morning to keep right after the Ku Klux Klan and see that everything possible is done to carry out the in? struction? contained in the telegram he sent yesterday to Police Commis? sioner Enright. "The Ku-Klux Klan," he said, "won't even get. started in New York. We will put them out. We have had other or? ganizations to fight, that were disposed to disturb the peace and welfare of the people. We beat them, and we will put this new organization out." "Hylan has a new slant on the pow j ers back of the Ku-Klux. He said be ! believes the organization is promoted ! by powerful influences which hope to I terrorize and hoodwink the people j while they carry out their own polit j ical schemes. "If the old parties, or one of them, fail to nominate a Presidential candi? date, of the typo of Hearst or Senator Johnson, seme way of launching a third party in behalf of the people, will be found," said Mayor Hylan. It was stated that no conclusions wore reached regarding the distribution of the municipal patronage in New York after the first of the year. Also it was said that Dylan made no effort to line up Murphy for Hearst for any office, and that nothing was accom? plished toward making Smith's path smoother in New York if he seeks its next delegation to the national conven? tion. What Hylan hopes to get for his administration when Smith becomes Governor did not develop publicly. He did say some complimentary words about Smith. "I see that Smith has written to the Attorney General of New York request? ing him not to" act on the application of the water power interests in order that the people may be given an op? portunity to develop the water power to generate heat, light and power," he said.

Georges Clemenceau, whose life has been devoted to a succession of strug? gles?struggles of ideas, of political factions, of nations and of alliances? watched the Harvard Yale footbali game here to-day and got a tremendous thrill out of the experience. ''Magnificent sport!" exclaimed the '"Tigei"." with sparkling' eyeH, as he rest? ed to-night in a thickly cushioned chair in his private car in the railroad yards. A poilu's faded cap sheltered his bald head from treacherous drafts, his feet rested on a thick mat, his hands were relaxed on the arms of his chair, but ht? < ould not put from his mind the I pictures left there by, his day'3 adven i ture. "f liked it very much," ho said. "Sin ' cerely I liked it. At first, too, I liked j the noise, but there can be too much ! of a something. It was so with the ; yelling. I should have had leas." The old man who only a few years j ago was keeping alive the courage of ! France while the fato of the world rested in the struggle of opposing lines ; of mud-covered men who hurled death at each other from trenches that scarred the earth from Switzerland to the English Channel?this old man watched with enthusiasm the contest . of two football teams. He cannot be so very old, in spite of his eighty-one years, and he was as much a college hero to-night as the twenty-one-year old 18i)-pound Harvard left half,' George Owen jr., who carried th? ball fifty-seven yards until only a j?ush over was needed for a touchdown. Harvard Cheers "Tiger'' When the game was over if was Clemenceau who was cheered in the Harvard section, it was Clemenceau who was showered with crimson petaled chrysanthemums, it was Clemenceau about whose ungainly figure the vie tory celebrants tried to wind their snake dance. Possibly the old man learned some? thing as he sat there, first in the sun in the Harvard section and then in the colder atmosphere of the Yale rooters. i He may have realized, as more than half of the Harvard team during the last part of the game were assisted to the side lints to nurse their injuries, that there before him was isolated for scientific scrutiny that something, that dash and daring, that he remarked with thankfulness when he discovered it in two milion Yankees who swarmed | into Franco in the darkest hour of the war. "Magnificent!" was his estimate to? night, and it is hardly possible that he was thinking only of the 10 to 3 Har? vard victory. M. Clemenceau left Boston at 8:30 this morning. His objective was the same as that of some 75,000 other atoms of humanity, surging into New j Haven on trains, automobiles, trolley i oars and afoot, but because of the re I spect with which he is regarded the i way was made a trifle easier for him ? than for the mass of the rooters. The j private car Bethlehem was switched on to a siding, and immediately Thomas ! Farnum, secretary of Yale University, I stepped aboard, bearing credentials of j admittance to the Yale Bowl, without j which it is doubtful whether even the \ (Continutd on vom ihre?)

Britain Did Not "Alloiv" German Fleet to Sink, She Tells Clemenceau WASHINGTON, Nov. 25 (By Thc*Asa>ciatcd Press).?-The British Embassy, in a formal statement to-day, took exception to the recent declaration of former Premier Clemenceau of France that Great Britain had "secured a guaranty" of national safety by letting the surrendered German fleet sink in Scapa Flow. The statement follows: "M. Clemenceau is reported in the press as havihg stated in a speech made by him on November 21, at the Metropolitan Opera House, New York, that Great Britain let it (the German fleet) goto the bottom of Scapa Flow and thus secured her guaranty. "The British Embassy is authorized to declare that any suggestion J that the British government willfully allowed the German fleet to be sunk at Scapa Flow is not only untrue, but without any possible foun? dation in fact. "By the terms of the Armistice, in the negotiations for which France was one of the principals, the British authorities were not per? mitted to place any guard on board the Gtrman vessels and they were therefore unable to take any measures to prevent the German crews opening the seacocks. The British authorities' powers were confined to insuring that trie fleet did not ?team out to sea or open fire. '?A statement in the above terms was issued by the British govern? ment on June 21, 1919, a few hour;; after the German fleet had been sunk," Harding Calls Senate Parley On Legislation Lodge, Curtis and Others To Be Consulted in Program ; Ship Subsidy and Appro? priations To Be Discussed Farm Credits to Pass! Dozen Western Senators in Night Session at Watson's Home Go Over New Plans From tlte Tribune's WaaMni/ton Bureau WASHINGTON, Nov. 25.?President Harding soon will have a conference with Senate leaders over the legisla? tive program for the winter. The program Is expected to inclr.de farm credits legislation. The Repub? lican leaders have beco.ne convinced, in view of the unrast among the farm? ers as disclosed in the campaign nnd in the election, ihat ?uch legislation must be enacted. It is possible that , other agricultural legislation will be irc-uded, but the leaders probably will fttke the position that it will be im ; practicable to try to pass it before ? March 4, The program also is expected .to in? clude the ship Hub?idy bill and the ap ; propriation bills. The Liberia.-- loan bill will be disposed of by the Senate Monday and after that it will take up the Dyer anti-iynching bill. Indica? tions are it will lead to long debate atid it is doubtful whether it can be forced to a vote. Senator Watson, of Indiana, went to the White House to-day to ;Vk over the program with the Presidem. The subject was only touched on in a gen eial way. When the President calls in several leaders the situation in the Senate as to ship subsidy and 'he course, to be taken in pressing it will be considered thoroughly. Western Senators Meet Senators Lodge and Curtis had talks -with the President, to-day, as well as Senator Watson. The program, how? ever, was not gone into in detail. Sen? ator Curtis talked over the Liberian loan bill. About a dozen Republican Senators from states west of the Mississippi River met at the office of Senator Wat? son, of Indiana, last night and in? formally discussed the program. A feature of the meeting was the de? velopment, of , sentiment that there should be agricultural legislation. Some of^the Senators from the West, belonging to the regular Republican organization, want railroad legisla? tion vhich will reduce freight rates. j Some of the Senate leaders feel that . the shipping hill should not be kept | before the Senate so persistently as i to imperil passage of the appropria j tiori bills. The McNary reclamation bill, carrying $350,000,000 authoriza I f ion, is strongly urged by Far Western i Senators. They want it put on the pro? gram. All these matters, it is ander j stood, will be gone over when the President calls Senate leaders into I conference. Indications are that in the end rail [ road legislation of any comprehensive i character will be left off, on the ground | there is not sufficient time to go into the subject in the short session which i wifl begin a week from Monday. The | President is not expected to go into j a detailed discussion of the railroad question in his annual message, though he may touch on some phases. Progressives Discuss Program Senator Cummins, chairman of the Interstate Commerce Committee, who has talked ower railroad problems at length with tho President, will intro? duce various proposed amendments of the transportation act early in Decem? ber. He is working on them now. j Senator Cummins, however, has little j or no hope they can be disposed of I by_ the Senate this winter. The Cum ? mins amendments will relate to the Railroad Labor Board, the living wage, anti-strike action, the pooling of rail? road cars and other matters. Whether (Continued on page titre?)

Opposes Secret Pacts At Lausanne Ambassador Child Asks Open Door in Fact a? Well as Name; Deplores Scramble for Privileges Allies Point to Mandates Refused Declare America Want* Her Share of the Benefit* Without Responsibility By Wilbur Forrest Special Cable to Thr. Tribune Copyright, 31.22. KtW Yorl: Tribune If,.-. LAUSANNE, Nov. 25.?Ambassa? dor Richard Washburn Child star? tled the Near-East conference here to-day by delivering what was virtu? ally an ultimatum on behalf of the American government against pri? vate agreements between the nego? tiating powers for special economic privileges in Asia Minor to the ex? clusion of interests of American na? tionals. His statement, in which he gave the Allies to understand he is cog? nizant that a scramble for territorial and other special privileges is going on* here and demanded the oper door in fact as well as in name overshadowed completely all the other developments of the day. Declines to Name Target In an interview after the conference session the ambassador declined to say whether his declaration whs aimed spe? cifically at a possible deal between the Allies or one between the British and the Turks regarding the Mosul oilfield!-. in the Mesopotamia. The questions si Turkish reclamation of the Mosul field*? and Turkish boundaries in Asia Minor will be before the conference soon, pos? sibly the first of next week. That pri? vate interviews and unofficial discus sionB are going on outside the confer er.ee relative to exclusive exploitatior of rights in the Near East by Europear powers is undeniable. The reaction to the American "view point" in the Allied delegations might be described as ?ne of suppressed in? dignation. Although it is impossible to find a single British, French or Its' ian representative who will speak openly, a composite of the. undercurrent opinion might be summed up something as follows: "The position of the United State.? is that, risking nothing, it must ahara in the pot. The powers have certaii. rights, viewpoints and responsib?itie? and making peace in the Near East if their risk, a risk in which tho Unite. States declined to participate. Refused Mandates Although the United States refuser | all Asia Minor mandates, especia'!; that over Armenia, thrice, she desire;* her missionaries and financiers to ben? efit in all privileges and capitulations granted the other powers. The Unite. States protested previously against the ; Mesopotamian-Mosul mandate held b; England, who made many sacrifices ii Mesopotamia and may be called on t" make more. Americans persist in look ing on Turkey as a territory wher? business may be done on a basis of in? ternational law, but it is well t.. m member that it has required the politi? cal power of the nations behind the!,* nationals to do business in Turkey i. the past. The United States d?clin?e the invitation to come to Lausanne where the new status of Turkey is tc be defined, yet she hopes nevertheless to nullify the work of the pioneer-? unless the rights of her nationals a?r?r considered on an equal basis. Offer No Real Help "The Allied delegations have, indi? cated they are ready to extend t'a*. greatest consideration to Ameriear. wishes, but they will decline to em? barrass their difficult problem here by the American notes, which, unaccom? panied, do not offer any real help to? ward settling the question." Ambassador Child, in his address ti> the conference, re-enunciated thr. American open-door policy. He also comprehended his remarks and the Hughes memorandum, communicated on October 30 to the British, French and Italian Foreign Offices, in a writ ten statement which he sent to all th? delegations, The memorandum made. it clear that the United States was not seeking special privileges nor contem? plating anything which might embar? rass the pea??-making efforts here, but desired to be made certain of the open door to Asia Minor. While the note assured the- con? ference that it did not refer specifically to the discussions now going on rela? tive to Turkish and European frontier?. I it added: "The representatives of tht ! United States are unable to hear o? j concluded discussion of any territorial | settlement which in turn may affect other settlements." Attacks Privat? Meetings Here Child plainly referred to ctM sul?ations outside the actual conference which are believed to be prejudicing not only tho presen!; but futur.? negotiations, and he indirectly objecter? to being permitted to listen in only t?> the formal sittings, designed for the American observers to hear. He callad pairticular attention to that section of the Hughes memorandum ! stating the attitude of the United States against secret treaties, notably the tripartite agreement of 1920 be? tween England, France and Italy, whereby Asia Minor was split int.. three zones of influence. The threi . powers have not, however, taken ad? vantage of their agreement. Tho Tribune correspondent learned to-night that some members of thi* Allied delegations have called hi?3 l communication '"another platonie ! American note" and that a spirit ?? ! resentment has been growing because of the feeling in those quarters that the American observers are watchinj every move like detectives. Grew Helped On Note ? Child told the correspondent the note was prepared by Minister Grew, and himself. Sentiment was found divided in th* Turkish delegation, v/he? the Tribune correspondent called ?t its he&dqun* 'tars to-tiischi. Spokeam*** for mor?
