GREER, NORMAND DRIVER,
ACQUITTED IN SHOOTING
Bearrested on Dry Charge—Actress
Besents Implication of “Hush
ing” in Case.
By tie Associated Press.
DOS ANGELES, Calif., June 20.
What transpired at the alleged gay
party here last New Tear night in
the course of which Courtland S.
Dines, Denver oil man, was shot and
♦ seriously wounded, today remains
food for the imagination of those who
hopefully attended session after ses
sion of the trial of Horace A. Greer
on a charge of attempting to murder
Dines. The defendant was acquitted
by a jury of ten women and two men
in the superior court yesterday with
out having uttered a single para
graph of descriptive testimony from
the stand.
If they were disappointed, however,
so was Greer; for he had scarcely
finished shaking hands with the
jurors when he was arrested on a
charge of violating the state prohi
bition enforcement act. Pending pre
liminary hearing on this charge he was
released on s2ao bail.
Neither Miss Normand. by whom
Greer was formerly employed as a
chauffeur, nor Edna Purviance, the
other motion-picture actress with
Dines when he was shot, were in
court to hear the verdict. Miss Nor
mand said she was not entirely satis
fied with the way the trial turned
• tout.
“I wish,” she said, “that the im
pression had never been created that
a lot of things about that party were
hushed up. X don't want anybody to
’shield’ me. I wish they had told
everything: there certainly was not
anything for me to be afraid to have

MINE WAGE REDUCTION
AGREEMENT REITERATED
1,000 Men in Kentucky Fields De
clared to Have Accepted a 20
Per Cent Cut.
By the Associated Press.
MADISONVILLE, Ky., June 20.—A
contract calling for a 20 per cent
wage reduction, affecting about 1,000
men, was signed Wednesday between
an authorized miners’ committee and
President Frank D. Rash of the St.
Bernard Mining Company, both
parties reiterated at Earllngton last
night. Prior to the signature of the
agreement, 400 miners In a mass
meeting withdrew from the United
Mine Workers of America and au
thorized negotiations with the com
pany. it was stated.
Last night's statement followed
word from Central City, in which
Lonnis Jackson, president of district
23 United Mine Workers. was
quoted as saying five or six union
miners signed a contract to return
to work, but that they represented
only themselves.
Witnesses here also asserted that
the reported demonstration of pos
sibly 1,500 miners in opposition to
the agreement was participated In by
fifty-two employes of the St. Bernard
Companv and possibly 525 miners
from Webster County, who came to
Earlington in fifteen automobiles.
These men, it wal said, attended an
address by President Jackson at the
base ball park here.
Men who attended the contract
negotiation meeting are reported to
have assured President Rash they
represented 1,000 miners who wanted
to go to work.

INDIA PLANS CHANGES
IN GOVERNMENT ACT
Committee to Inquire Into Opera
tion of Law to Remedy
Defects.
By the Associated Press.
LONDON, June 20.—The India office
has announced that the government of
India, with the approval of the secre
tary for India, has decided to appoint
a committee to Inquire into the diffi
culties and defects In the working gov
ernment of India act and to determine
the feasibility of obtaining remedies for
such defects as are consistent with the
structure, purposes and policies of the
act.
The membership of the committee
will be both Indian and British, under
the chairmanship of Sir Alexander
Muddiman. It will hold its sessions at
Simla and report to the governor gen
eral. The appointment of the committee,
apparently, is the Indian government’s
response to Indian demands for a round
table conference on questions of Indian
administration, which the imperial gov
ernment could not meet, because the
Indian act provides that the question of
revision cannot arise for a period of
five years.
Astronomers consider our sun Is
now a “dwarf star,’’ but that former

greater than at present.

SHORT-WAVE LENGTH
TEST IS SUCCESSFUL
Shenandoah Converses With Ama
teurs at Rochester While Cruis
ing Over City.
Special Dispatch to The Star.
ROCHESTER, N. Y., June 20.—That
radio messages can come from a
point high up in the air as well as
"through it” was shown here re
cently, when the radio operator on
the Navy's big airship Shenandoah
gossiped for a while with radio ama
teurs below.
"To the Rochester amateurs," read
one message in code. “Y’ou are the
first bunch that have woke up to
day. Best regards.”
This was not a casual greeting, at
tempted as a pastime for the Shen
andoah's crew, hut part of a sys
tematic program for testing out the
possibilities of short-wave amateur
communication. Some time ago the
American Radio Relay League learned
from the Navy Department that a
short wave transmitter was being in
stalled on the airship for the express
purpose of enabling its operator to
communicate with amateurs should
it be needed in emergency during
flights.
Has Bent Outfit.
The radio outfit on the Shenandoah
is now regarded as the most complete
of any ever installed on an aircraft,
having facilities that allow the use of
practically all wave lengths from 100
meters to the long waves commonly
used by big commercial stations. The
obvious advantage of the complete
equipment is to give the crew of the
airship a chance to avail itself of as
sistance, for direction finding and
other purposes, of all classes of radio
stations which would be useful in
lime of emergency.
I’Xven the broadcast band has not
been excluded from this arrangement,
for the Shenandoah's operator, after
sending the foregoing message to am
teurs. shifted over from code to voice
and gave the following message to
station WHAM:
"We have been hearing your broad
cast station WHAM, at Rochester,
and amateurs, WHAM coming in fine.
If WHAM cares to. they might report
our position to the naval air station
at Lakehurst."
The operators at WHAM immedi
ately forwarded the telegram to Lake
hurst and then turned on the trans
mitter and informed the Shenandoah
they had complied with tho request.

FIFTEEN MINUTES OF RADIO EACH DAY
By JOSEPH CALCATERRA,
Radio Editor of Popular Science Monthly
All Bight* Be Mired. Beproduction Prohibited.
Radio as a Sociological Aaart.
Not so very long ago a popular
sung called “How Ya Gonna Keep
Them Down on tho Farm After
They’ve Seen Paree” made its appear
ance and swept the country.
Today a solution for the problem
which constantly confronts the home
folks, namely that of making the
home circle attractive enough to com
pete with the glitter and excitement
of the gay outside world, exists in
the radio. . ~ ,
Radio is helping to keep folks at
home and make them acquainted witn
their own family circle. It Is pro
moting good fellowship among friends
and helping to cement more closely
the tie that binds.
A great speech by a gifted orator,
a concert by some celebrated singer
or instrumentalist, an instructive talk
bv an authority in his particular
field, be it law, politics, sociology or
what not, an evening of jazz music
by some famous orchestra finds the
folks at home sitting in the family
circle and ready to be instructed or
entertained. „ . ,
In more than 3.009.000 homes entire

FRENCH SENATOR ASKS
U. S. DEBT BE SETTLED
Says Willingness to Pay Should Be
Shown by Starting Account in
National Budget.
By the Associated Press.
PARIS, June 20.—Gen. Taufflieb.
senator from Alsace, believes France j
should hasten settlement of her debt i
to America. YVriting in L’lnformation t
todav. he declares;
"Instead of persisting in our equivo- ;
cal attitude of debtors hardly in a
hurrv to settle their scores, we should
without delay engage in pourparlers
for payment- Our willingness to pay
should manifest Itself in tangible
fashion, by starting an account in our
budget, for example, entitled ’reim
bursement of our war debt to the
United States.’ which we would credit
with certain sums, however small they
might be.
"An accord being thus realized in
principle, it is not doubtful that
America would grant us the most
benevolent modalities in payment for
the future and a moratorium for the
j present. To France’s probity and
j punctuality America will always reply
j with generosity. Therefore, let us give
the world, and Germany particularly,
an example of our rectitude in busi
i ness. We shall be that much stronger
in exacting strict application of the
experts’ plan from Germany.”

together, instead of allowing them to
go heiterskelter, hither and yon.
Remove* Isolation.
Whether it be in the isolated farm
house, miles away from the nearest
concert hall or in among the teeming
confines of a city tenement section,
radio is bringing the best that is to
be had in entertainment and educa
tion. bringing it home to those who
could not possibly afford to avail
themselves of the opportunity of at
tending in person.
Radio is in direct and successful
competition with the many shows and
other influences which tend to poison
the mind and break up the family
circle.
It quenches the thirst for knowledge
of the man who craves for informa
tion and education, it satisfies the
yearning of the religious invalid who
cannot attend church services, it
satiates the flapper’s appetite for
jazz, it gratifies the music lover’s
passion for the works of the masters
as rendered by the foremost artists,
it provides the financier wjth a means
of getting the latest financial and
commercial reports, it gives the
.sports lover information from grid
iron, ring and diamond, it fills the
farmers’ requirements for necessary
information on crops, markets and
weather.
Until some one commercializes this
new force so that broadcast pro
grams can be heard in halls and
auditoriums, the only logical place
for this form of entertainment and
instruction is the home.
Keeps ’Km Home.
When Janet, who is interested in
fashions, hears that the editor of one
of the leading woman’s magazines is
going to talk on “What Milady Will
Wear This Summer,’’ Janet cancels
her engagement for the movies and
stays home. When Alice, who likes
to dance, hears that Vincent Lopez
and his orchestra are due on the air
on Thursday. Alice stays home and
helps roll back the rug. When Aunty
Jane, who likes classical music, hears
that the symphony orchestra is going
to broadcast a series of concerts, she
jots down the dates and invites her
self over to the house for the series.
When the Dempsey-Wills fight is
slated for broadcasting. Jack and his
friends will be listening in with the
family. And so it goes with the
other members of the family. A per
son goes to a vaudeville show be
cause he knows that one or more of
the acts are going to be of special in
terest to him, but he does not leave

going: on. So, also, when the dancing
is over, the chances are that Alice
sticks around and enjoys the sym
phony orchestra or gets Interested in
the boxing match: Aunt Jane becomes
interested in fashions, Jack in Jazz
and so on with the other members
of the family circle.
The members of the family get to
know each other’s interests, each
other’s likes and dislikes.
Yea, verily, radio is solving the
problem of how to keep the boys and
girls at home.
