BV JCSII S B. WOOD. By Cable to The Star and Chicago Daily News. Copyright, 1922. CAIRO, Egypt, May 27.?The last hope of 80,000,000 Arabs to win free dom for their race without further bloodshed vanished when cables from Washington announced ' that the United States had concluded an agreement with Great Britain, rec i ognizing the latter's mandate in Pal- ! estine. The Arabs came into the war oti the side of the allies against their; Turkish co-religionists in response to to the allies' promise of freedom. After the United States entered the war enunciating the doctriry of self determination Tor the smalllr nations the wavering tribes joined their brethren. The Arab support was de- : termined and effective. Later, though 1 Great Britain and France divided the I Arab country into tho mandates of Palestine, Mesopotamia and Syria, the Arabs pinned their hope to the pledge of democratic America. They consid ered the^Unlted States the defender' ? of their aspirations against European i i powers in accordance with the Amer- ! I lean promise. % I ! Hap Westers Diplomacy. With the United States acquiesc ing in the mandates partitioning I their country, the Arab leaders say i they have learned a lesson in the fickleness of western diplomacy and they no longer hope for the assist ance of the United States to win in dependence by the slow method of peace. They say they must depend upon themselves, using the lessons tested through centuries and re learned in the great war. The executive committee of the Syrian and Palestine congress, rep resenting Arabs in all parts of the wofid. and the managing committee? of //he revolution in Syria, held an all-fiight session, after which they I sen\ cable messages to the American people, the president and eight mem bers of the council of the league of nations. President Harding, the American Senate, and House and also to the Syrian committees in New York, Mexicp City, Caracas, San Paulo and Buenos Aires ordering con ?erted action. The cable to the president of the council Is tanta mount to a declaration of war in Syria should the mandates be con firmed. Secret messengers were sent to Syria to organize an upris ing. Meaaaff to Council Head. r The cable to the president of the council, signed by Michael Lotfalia? i president of the Syria-Palestine con | gress. says: "We are advised that at the coming I session the council will discuss the mandate proposals. We remind you of the resolutions of the Syria-Palestine congress in Geneva in 1921, demand ing of the league -r>f nations: "Recognition of the independence of Syria, Lebanon and Palestine. "The right of these countries as a ; single civil government to federate with other Arab states. ?'The immediate cancellation of the mandates. "The evacuation of Syria. Lebanon and Palestine by French and British troops. "Repudiation of the Balfour dec laration that the Jewish national home is in Palestine. "The latest developments in Syria' demonstrate that it is the nation's wish, to repeal the mandate and to defeat the efforts of the invading: power to stifle nationaj sentiments. We hope yoiy honorable council will "aspect the principle of self-deter mlnation, recognize the wish of Syria, froqtiently expressed, by all legal means to recover, her independence, and refuse the mandate. "We disclaim responsibility for the future consequences of any decision contrary to the wishes of the peo ple." Appeal to American People. Tho long appeal to the American people says, in part: "The Syrians placed all their liopes in the* support of the liberal Amer ican people in their struggle for lib erty and independence. We assured the American mission, in* 1919, of which Charles R. Crane was chair man, of our desire for freedom and the absolute refusal of the mandate. Though Washington, acceding to the wishes of the imperialists of Europe, suppressed the Crane report, Syrian confidence in the American people was undiminished. As the French occupation became severer, more cor rupt and more cruel, the Syrians al ways looked to the United States. "Today's news, if true, that the United States permits the imperialist powers to confirm the mandates, gives a death blow to Syrian hopes and repudiates the noble principle of the liberation of subject peoples and their right to self-determination. The Syrians appeal to the most liberal people in the world, convinced that tbey will respond to the prayers of an oppressed nation. Its leaders have been imprisoned, exiled or killed, and the country is suffering from a reign of terror. Still it dreams of liberty such as that in the United States." The Syrians claim to be in posses sion of sufficient arms and ammuni tion to carry on an extensive cam paign. FRIEND BEHIND WABD. Paper Sees Protection of Another in Blackmail Plot. NEW YORK. May !!7.--The New York Evening World today prints the following in regard to Walter S. Ward, who has admitted he killed Clarence Peters. "More and more indications have been encountered to support the rumor that young Ward was not dealing with the blackmailers to protect his own J reputation, but that of another man to whom he was under heavy obliga tions and who trusted in his nerve and intelligence. The man named as the Hctual object of the blackmail threats was given to diversions on Broadway Ions' before the days of prohibition. "There is not the slightest ground, investigators find, tfcat Walter Ward had any such acquaintances as were to be found in all-night drinking re sorts or had any liking for that sort of society. But with the high regard and obligation existing between the athletic police commission of Ne*.v Rochelle and the man who was preyed upon by blackmailers it was entirely natural that the victim should turn to Walter Ward to help him out of his trouble."

By Cable to Tha Star and Chtcafo Datfy Neva. Copyright, 1822. PARIS, May 27. ? Thoae who claim that,French sclenoe, like ;ha French nation. Is decadent and dying will be shocked to hear of a great discovery which has Just been made in the chemical labora tories of the University of Paris. Georges Urbaln. member of the Institute and a professor at the Sorbonne, after fifteen years of patient study, announces that he has succeeded In identifying a new element called "celtium," which, In course of time, may prove as bene ficial to mankind as radium. He was aided a little In his researches by Frederick Webb of San Fran cisco, a graduatejof the Harvard School of Applied Chemistry. Healing Qualities Probable. Celtium Is an element of the rarest sort and is found only in tiny particles. It Is said that since celtium Is similar to radium it may show healing qualities If ever obtainable in quantities suf flclent for commercial use. The work of isolating It will be very expensive, however. Celtlum has been placed by the discoverer in niche number 72 on the X-ray spectrum elaborated by a brilliant young English chemist, who was K.U'ea at the Dardanelles at the age of twenty-seven. "What can celtlum be used for?" Prof. Urbaln was asked. ^ "What an Ignorant question!" ex claimed the brilliant French i scientist, whose copious whiskers bristled with indignation. "You Il lustrate the-heedless attitude of the general public by asking such I a quention. Don't you know that < 1 we scientists are pioneers and con structors? Avoids Prosaic Pensslas. "It Is our business to add to hu- ! man knowledge and not to develop prosaic formulas for the' applica tion oC our contributions. When I an explorer discovers a newveoun- j try he does not ask what will be- I come of It fifty years hence." "What induced you to call the I new element 'celtlum'?" was the I next question. "Because its discovery was due to Celtic brains," replied Prof. Urbaln. "In the course of my twenty years at the Sorbonne I have discovered two other elc- 1ntethj:n." af.c? !.
