U-BOATS TO GO I
Naval Official Declares
Peace Conference Will
The submarine must go!
This will be the dictum of the Peas?
Conference, in the opinion of a high
American naval official, express?*!
Branded as an assassin and outlaw
by the civilised world. Ha elimina
tion is regarded by officiais of the
United States and allied nations aa
Imperatively neceaaary, if the un
speakable atrocities committed by
German U-boats during the late war
are not te be repeated and if "free
dom of the seas'' Is to be more than
an empty phrase.
The American naval official who la
quoted as saying that the Peace Con
ference will forever bar the use of
undersea boata declared that the sub
ject had been officially considered not
only by representatives of the United
States, but by repr?sentatives of the
European allies aa well. They were
In agreement that the history of tne
uee by Germany of her U-boats dur
ing the war prove to the consciences
of the world that henceforth the sun
marine must be no part of the navy
Of any country. The determination to
eliminate teh undersea boata is so
pronounced that it is aaeerted by the
navy official who discussed the sub
ject that it will be one of the first sub
ject? taken up at the peace table, and
that it will be quickly disposed ot by
a unanimous vote.

Dead Girl, Bigamist Husband

SUICIDE OF PIPER
BRINGS OUT STORY
OF GIRL'S MURDER
ooxnxTED from p.\gb onb.
ilton. Ontario. The evening before
he went he told his friend his story
and the friend sealed his lips as did
Piper, because of a complexity of
penalties that awaited, silent or
commital. Fear of both the Federal
and State penitentiary drove Piper
"Piper went to Hamilton, Ontario,
to look for Goldberg- and Sheldon,
who actually exist." revealed the
friend today. "They were hold-up
men and their last Job with Piper
was at Rockford. Mich., In the rob
bery of the postoffice there. It must
have happened about three weeks
before the killing of Frieda Weich
mann and quantities of stamps and
money were taken. The authorities
? Real Robter.
"Every' little while on the trip Shel
don and Goldberg would meet up with
Frieda and Piper, with qash in hand,
or Piper would rob with Goldberg,
leaving Frieda with Sheldon. Piper's
funds for the trip, if you remember,
have never been explained. Frieda
Weichmann wrote to her aunt for all
her little ravines, and the aunt sent j
them. But they wouldn't go far in
"Now." continued Piper's confidant,
"the automobile hold-ups. with the
amazed and frantic Frieda Welch
mann in their midst, motored up into
Michigan, ?nd one day the town or
Rockford awoke to the fact that the
postofnre had been rifled.
?'Piper told me of having"been in on
the deal. He told me of the resent
ment of Frieda and of the more dire
resentment a?atnst her of Goldberg
and Sheldon, who feared she would
tell. He told me they threatened then
! to kill him or her to clear their way
Shot .4a She Slept.
"And then," concluded the friend,
; he told me that Frieda Weichmann
? was shot while she slept, but he did
I not tell the name of the murderer, j
? Nor did he nay who h!d the body in ;
? the ground or where the grave was '
? dug. But Frieda Weichmann was .
killed rather than Piper, because
| Piper could be counted on for silence, ?
"ft he confessed to the postoffice '
! authorities the Federal penitentiary ?
j was awaiting him. If he told at all
? how Frieda Weichmann died, even
though he denied firing the shot, hn.
I was guilty of complicity.
l "One way or the other, ai lent or
confessed, he was hooked. How he
thought the men could help him I
. don't know. He was Just desperately
floundering for aid."
?All Religions United
in "Cause," Says Dr. Day
New York, Dec. 22.?"Christ's king
dom had not one element which other '
kings have regarded as essential. It j
had no army or navy, no statesmen, ;
no fortresses, yet He built the only j
kingdom that can stand upon the,
earth." said Rev. James R. Day, !
chancellor of Syracuse University, in ?
a Christmas sermon preached today ?
In St. Paul's M. E. Church, of which ?
he formerly was pastor,
"Has anything ever drawn us closer!
together than this war?" continued ?
I>r. Day. "Jew, Gentile. Catholic and |
Protestant unite in their offerings to
the Red Cross and join together as
"We were never so near the millen
nium as now. One mighty spirit Is
moving us all."

Foch a vegetable bouquet. Returning

through the Saxe Market. The sales

were gone. Thereupon onions, car

bunched and presented to the mar
