On the eve of wbit threatened te be n critical day In tie life of the Lausanne conference Ambnssndn'r Child Inst night had e long eonrercatlen with Ismet rnshn obeiit (ttt Straits problem, which Lord Curzon yesterday 'declared must be disposed of Immediately. It has become known that the Amer ican observers at the conference believe that an International control comniN cemniN comniN ilen associated with the League of Nn Nn tfens, as suggested In the allied plan for supervision of the Dardanelles, Is tin necessary. In ether words, the Ameri cans believe thnt freedom of the Straits should be an actual freedom gunrnnteed if a treaty between Turkey and the ether world Power, and that It should net be a freedom limited by an Inter national commission. , Ismet Pasha received a message from Mustapha Kemal today announcing that the American College nt Smyrna, which vis closed during the fighting there, nay, reopen and thnt the Nationalist Oerernmcnt has no objection te the American schools carrying en their work In any part of Turkey. Ismet Pssha Immediately advised the Ameri can correspondents nt the Near Kant Conference of- this official action by the Angera Government. The American observe hnve se far en the conference fleer limited them selves te statement of the most general t-rms en the Dardanelles question, without suggesting as te hew the Straits should be kept open te the commerce of the world and te the fleets of the Pow ers. Neither hnve there been intlmn intlmn tlens of America's attitude toward an international beard of control. Allied leaders last night served notice that the Turks today must either flatly accept or reject the Allied project for settlement of the Strnits question. Fair ure of the Dnrdanells negotiations, it is believed, will hardly affect the ether problems which the conference was called te solve. Nevertheless the atmosphere Just before the last session en the Straits problem was one of high nervous ten sion with the fear expressed In some conference quarters that the American opposition te the Straits commission plan was stiffening the Turks net only en the StrnltB question, but nlse en vital questions like the customs tariff and minorities. The Americnns nre understood te held that future difficulties ever the-Dardanelles nre best avoided bv making Turkey responsible for the liberty of the Straits through solemn commitments In tha treaty drawn up here. They be lieve the existence of an Internntlennl commission would only bow the seed of future misunderstandings. Ambas sador Child is said te have made this clear te all the delegations In his In formal meetings with them. During the hours preceding this aft ernoon's critical meeting the Impression prevailed that If the Turks could ob tain a satisfactory pact of guaranty from the Powers concerning the In solubility of the Straits nnd n sweep ing agreement of non-aggression against Constantinople nnd Turkey' generally they would be less recalcitrant concern. Ing the Straits regulations. Geneva, Dec. 20. (By A. P.) Towns nnd villages ever nn area of 200 square kilometers in Anatolia were de stroyed without apparent military ne cessity, during the fighting between the Greeks and Turkish Nationalists, ac cording te reports from representatives of the International Red Cress received at the headquarters here. One hundred nnd eighty thousand persons, mostly women nnd children, homeless nnd lacking proper feed sup plies, nre digging the ground for herbs with which te sustain life. These people, existing In the utmost misery, ace death from starvation and disease "nle Prompt aid Is given by the -urxlsh Red Cress or some ether well equipped relief organization.

In the picture nlse Is Nurse Iluttenridi, of the society any one was arrested in Jersey City," ald Mr. Keown,. "I mean when they were brought te the station house," amended Mr. Kel- Mr. Iteewn objected and was over ruled. The police captain answered: "Ne." 'Mrs. Brunen flushed heavily when the police captain was being exam ined. "Didn't Mrs. Brunen say her hus band wns i brute?" Mr. Keown's ob jection was sustained. "Did Mrs. Bruen say te any one here present that she hated her hus band?" Objection overruled, nnd the witness answered: "She did." "Did she say he was a brute?" Ob jection sustained. "Didn't she say she lived a deg's life?" Justice Kalisch interjected: "She testified te thnt herself." "Didn't Mrs. Brunen say she loved 'Dec' Ward?" This was objected te and the objection sustained. "Did she say she was going te get n divorce?" The objection te this ques tion was sustained. Question Ruled Out William J. Lynch, sergeant of police at Jersey City, wns the next rebuttal witness. He testified that Mrs. Brunen told .witnesses te hide 'Dec Ward's apparel se It would net be found by Brunen. Justice Knllsch ruled out the sergeant's statement, and also objected te all questions put by Prosecutor Kel sey relating te Mrs. Brunen's friend ship with Ward. Albert Fletcher, of Riverside, next called, was asked by Mr. Kelsey : "Did you get the license number of the car which passed you en the night of March 10 between Cambridge station and Camden?" Mr. Kelsey was referring te the car alleged te have been driven by Mehr in his flight from the Brunen home after the crime. Mr. Keown Immedi ately objected te the question en the ground that it should have been asked in direct examination and net in re buttal. Justice Kalisch remarked: "Mr. Kelsey, I am astonished that you did net bring this out In the direct ex amination." Mr. Keown then said: "I certainly object. The wltnebs wns here during direct examination; he knew the num ber then, and lt would be a miscarriage of justice for him te testify te that point new." Mr. Kelsey then moved te reopen the case for the State, which was objected te strenuously by Mr. Keown. At this point Detective Parker leaned ever In his seat and whispered a few words In the ear of Assistant Prosecutor Pea cock. Court Reprimands Detective Justice Kalisch noticed the action and reprimanded him, saying : "Mr. Parker, pleabe don't de that. Yeu have your counsel te direct the case." The detective resumed his seat without reply. After Prosecutor Kelsey insisted en reopening the case the Judge said : "Yeu may proceed, but I will allow the defendant te produce any tcstImen he desires." Mr. Keown then w,ld: "Your Hener will net be offended If I ask an excep tion." "Certainly, that is your priv ilege," said Judge Kalisch. Fletcher then testlfltd thnt he took the number of the enr whlqh, passed him beceauae it almost struck the fen der of his machine. "My intentien was te make a com plaint about the speed at which the car was going and because it was running without lights. I took a pencil out of my pocket and drew a pad out of an other pocket and marked down the number. This Is the number." Mr. Keown again Jumped te his feet and objected, saying that the number may have been altered, as the paper ou which lt was written had been In the witness' hoube since the night of March 10 and he had net found it until last night. The objection was overruled, and Fletcher read the number as fol fel fol eows: "New Jetsey 00504." It was brought out later that this Is the number of Mehr's license. Admitted Changing Number In cross-exatpJnatlen Mr. Keown asked: 'Did you see a trolley car about the time this automobile passed you?" "Ne," said the witness. "Why you testified the ether day en the stand that you saw a trolley car, did you net?" naked Mr. Keown. "Yea," said the witness. "Did you tell my representative that you bad made a memorandum of this number?" "Yes." Justice 'Kalisch, who had been examining the note, then nrese. walked ever te the witness nnd snld : "What was the third number originally " pointing te one of the figures, "WBS lt an eight?" "Yes," snld the witness. "And you changed It te five?" asked the justice, "Yes, sir. My wife told me that it wns wrong." Many of the spectators broke out In laughter nt this nnd one applauded. The Judge rapped for order. The wit ness then was excused. Clifferd Cain, assistant ceuntv detec ve, then took the stand and Identified he number given by the witness us that belonging te Mehr's car. This ended the State's case, and Mr. Keown snld the defense hud no rebut -tnl te make. Fletcher wns recalled by the Judge, who questioned him again. , ,8 yi!T cnr 'unnlng when you joek(sdown this number?" asked Justlce !il,0,i!y'",.tll? wltnM8 answered. Ihut's i all," Bald Justice Knllsch. "our Hener, I'd like te say a few words te you," volunteered the witness. ,, ?,' . "M Jutlc? Kallseb,. and Fletcher left the stnnd. Mr. Keown then moved again that the case aplnst Mrs. Brunen be taken from the Jury. Addressing the Couri ROOF DWELLER . . . I 1 y - , lW?m mm& 7T-,v.'!., he said there was nothing in the Stnte's case te prove that Mrs. Brunen hnd aided or abetted the murder of her husband, andthcre was nothing te war rant her case going t6 the jury. Fer a moment it looked as though the Court might be going te grant the mo tion. , Justice alisch turned te Prosecutor Kelsey nnd snld: "In what does the prosecution rely te implicate Mrs. Bru Inen in this crime?" Mr. Kelsey snld "The Stnte relies first en the fact that en November 11. 1021, Mrs. Brunen hnd Powell wire te Mehr te come hemc-nt once " Judge Asks, "What Evidence?" "Well whnt evidence Is there of nny combination of Mrs. Brunen with Pow ell and Mehr te kill Jehn Brunen? asked Justice Kalisch. "On the morning of March 10, when Jehn Brunen changed his mind te go te WilUamstewn thnt day and New New Yerk tomorrow, nnd decided that he would be home, thnt night, Mrs. Bru nen wns home. She did net go te the moving pictures nnd stnyed home. "Well, prier te Mnrch 10, is then nny evidence te connect or prove n combination between Mrs. Brunen, Powell nnd Mehr?" Mr, Kelsey then reiterated state ments made by Powell In hW testimony which the Commonwealth holds Involve Mrs. Brunen. Turning te Mr. Keown, Justice Knllsch snld: "There may be enough evidence in the case against Mrs. Brunen, Mr. Keown, te have the facts laid before the Jury. I emm net expressing an opinion. I deny this motion, but I think I can take care of this case when I chrage the jury." Mr. Keown then made the same mo tion In behalf of Mehr, which also wns denied. In both ceses he took an ex ception. Mr. Peacock began by congratulating Mr. Keown for his "courteous nnd gentlemanly" conduct of the cese. Questions Opponent's Belief "I believe Mr. Keown Is convinced of the innocence of the defendants," he said, "and in his henrt acquits them of the crime. But he has been de ceived, as have been some ethers. At the outset, Mr. Keown said, 'Yeu hnve a set of facts thnt were presented by the State, nnd lf you believe these facts, you can de nothing else but bring In a verdict of murder.' He snld he would Bhew Powell did net commit the murder. Has he shown it? He said he would prove that Powell wns insane. Has he done It? Did Mehr, en the stund, sny anything about the condition of Powell, or thnt he heard him barking or raving in the jail? Ne. Keown did net ask him that question. "I will cover certain points in whfch the defense has fulled, and Mr. Kelsey will take up ethers. Then what else con ypu say but thnt both the defen dnnts have been proved guilty of mur der In the first degree? "Concerning the condition of Powell in the jail, Mr, Keown could have called Wnrdcn Hemer, Mr. Jacobs nnd ethei office th. These men snt in this court room day after day, but he did net call them. Ne. But he did cnll n bunch of murderers, thieves, creeks, robbers, te corroborate this fuked and frnmed defense, te deceive these men. Twe of his witnesses have been con victed of murder and another has spent twenty-two ycurs In jail. Are you going te tnke thnt kind of testimony? "After Powell, en the witness stand, has given se clearly every Incident that happened, nnd was unshaken by a merciless cress-examination, it Is nn insult te your intelligence te bring creeks and murderers te prove that Powell was insane. "They were going te prove that this boy was crazy and could net have com mitted the murder. But they did net attempt te prove who did commit It." Charges Mehr With Plot Mr. Peacock then referred te the years of friendship between Powell nnd Mehr. He spoke of Powell as a man ui iiueiiitiviiL'p aim untiiin, wuuui jienr mai u:iu (.-sinivu mini iiic uiuu ruwcii confessed, and then the defense turned , i-uuicwi-u, mill men uii' ii'ii'iist; iurneu ', ,-1,1 , ,!,- ...

This defense was framed te let two mudereru get away. They may feel themselves and they may feel counsel, but they cuu't loel you." Mr. I'eaccck then entered Inte the relations of Powell and Mehr before the murder nnd nelnted out thnt Mehr ln,l waited until Powell had reached the "starving point" nnd then given him money and bought him clothes. He told of the various exchanges of letters nnd telMrnms : told hew Mehr hn.l werk-.sl waited until Powell had reached the telegrams: told hew Mehr had worked nn PnU'nll'H ut ltliv.ltllll.1 IlV tulllmr l.li.i : . . the family troubles or tne Jiruucus Mehr."

Anether point made by Mr. Peacock was the warning Mrs. Brunen gnve te her daughter Hazel, when Hazel wanted te accompany her father te the winter quarters of the clrqus. Mrs. Brunen told Hazel net te go, he snld, winning her that her father might be killed.
