U. S. ARBITRATION INEUROPEOOUBTED London Press Sees No Like lihood Aloofness Will Be Materially Modified. POINCARE CRITIC OF PLAN Former French Premier Has No Fear of American as Umpire, But Dislikes Idea. By the Press. LONDON, July II. —The proposal of Premiers MacDonald and Herriot to appoint an American representative on the reparation commission when dealing with possible German de falcation under the Dawes report is the subject of further editorial com ment this morning, but there is lit thj confidence that such an appoint ment Is likely. The Times says the suggestion "Is rather like the counsel of despair, since it is difficult to imagine that the United States government in the present circumstances could think of reversing its declared policy with reference to the treaty of Versailles and all Its organs.” The Morning Post says; “it is ab surd for Europe to look to America unless to put forward a business proposition. The Americans are busi ness people, not idealists. If Eu rope means business, then America * ill come in. whoever wins the pres idential election, and the only way in which Kurope can do business is by an understanding between Great Britain and France. Doubts I. S. Acceptance. The Westminster Gazette asks; “How can we expect the United States to supply a member on a commission which is bound up with a treaty which she refuses to indorse? It seems incredible that any one should expect the United Stales to take up such an anomalous position as the new suggestion Implies.” Referring to the appointment of an American as a possibility, the Daily Mail says; ' We may reasonably hope that his vote would be given in favor of adequate payment by Ger many, seeing that this country, as one of the results of the war, is paying the United States one thousand mil lion pounds.” The Daily Express in a news note says it is hoped America will agree to" the proposal and that it is held there is no reason why she should refuse to participate in the repara tion commission when the Dawes re port and the German loan are under Consideration. Premier ‘W ins Praise. The diplomatic correspondent of the Daily Telegraph, assuming that the Washington government would not sanction American membership on the commission, says: “The alternative of calling in the agent general for rep arations, who under the Da.wes scheme is to be an American, is a questionable device, seeing that he Is a subordinate of the commission and could hardly act as arbitrator, when, owing to his office, he might conceiv ably be found in the position of a complainant.” Premier Macdonald receives some remarkably warm commendation from the opposition press upon his Paris trip. "He has saved the conference, pre vented an open disagreement be tween Great Britain and France on the eve of the conference and made It possible to go on with the work preparatory to application of the Dawes report,” say* the Times. The same credit is given him by the Morning Post, the Daily Mail and the Daily News, but it Is stressed that the situation is still full of difficulties and that, while for the present there Is no reason to assume that the con ference will fail, it certainly is not to have an easy task. POINCARE HITS NEW PLAN. Sees Britain Trying to Scuttle Rep arations Body. By the Associated Press. PARIS, July 11.—Former Premier Poincare spoke yesterday for about five hours in the Senate on the sub ject of the Dawes report and German reparations. He also discussed the interviews between the British prime minister and Premier Herriot. M. Poincare declared that a begin ning ought to be made by Germany voting laws necessary under the ex perts’ report. If Germany signed an other protocol it would be another German signature, and that was all. “To sum up,” he continued, “what ever sacrifices the experts’ report Imposes on us, it offers us guaran tees that others have failed to give us. Suspicions of British. M. Poincare was of the opinion that “the true aim of the British foreign office is to get rid of the reparation commission.” The British government had de clared that the commission had be come the instrument of Franco-Bel gian policy, but, he added; “We reply that France has 52 per cent of reparations assigned to It, and has only used its preponderant vote once and then not in connection with Ger man affairs. "We have accepted the experts’ plan, not jealously, but to end things and in a spirit of conciliation. It grants Germany groat advantages, although these advantages are only temporary.” Does Not Favor United States. He w'as not satisfied with the com munique dealing with the latest in terview between Premiers MacDon ald and Herriot, saying: "It seems to restrict and modify the power* of the reparation commission. I have no fear of the addition of an American delegate to the commission, but it is singular to see such precautions taken against us." M. Poincare concluded by reiterat ing that France ought to evacuate the Ruhr only as Germany pays, and he defended his policy against the frequently made charge of being purely negative by pointing out that t it had led to the report of the ex perts." BERLIN IS DISAPPOINTED. Press Sees Littl® for Germany in Paris Agreement. By the Associated Frees. BERLIN, July 11. —Berlin newspaper comment reflects disappointment over the outcome of the interview in Paris between Prime Minister MacDonald of Great Britain and Premier Herriot of France. The Nationalist organs, as usual, seize the opportunity to condemn the German government for accepting the Dawes report without first obtain ing from the allies binding guarantees regarding its execution. The Paris negotiations have resulted in decidedly making worse the conditions of the Dawes report for Germany, in the opinion of the Boersenzeitung, which also believes that such an essential issue as determining the period when the occu pied areas shall be evacuated will now be wholly contingent upon the state of relations between England and France. Feel* Germany Slighted. The manner in which Germany ap parently has been omitted from all consideration in connection with the manner in which the Dawes report is to be put into execution suggests to Die Zeitu, Foreign Minister Strese irymn’B organ, one of the gravest fea tures of the present situation. It gives renewed emphasis to the PRESIDENTIAL PARTY BACK IN CAPITAL AFTER FUNERAL IN VERMONT (Continued from First Page.) member of the Coolldge party, con stantly at his mother’s arm. Several members of the President's party, including the cabinet mem bers. Frank W. Steams of Boston and Mrs. Stearns, missed the trip to the home of the President’s father at Plymouth after the service at the cemetery. The automobiles wore slow In getting akay from the ceme tery and they lost the presidential car, making the return immediately to Ludlow. At the farm house home the family rested while Col. Coolldge packed up for his Journey to the White House. Later Mrs. Coolldge and John took a short walk about the grounds. RESTS IN VERMONT HILLS. Body Consigned to Grave With Simple, Touching Rites. By the AfeM>oiated Press. PLYMOUTH. Vt.. July 11.—In the little village cemetery where the maples and evergreens throw long shadows across the old tombstones on the hillside, they buried Calvin Cool id ge, six teen-year-old son name sake of the President, yesterday. Re straining in large part outward manifestation of their sorrow, the President. Mrs. Coolldge and John, the elder son. stood with bowed heads during the short, simple commitment service, until a marine bugler had blown "taps” across the grave. The cemetery where Calvin was ! ak i t .°, rest lies on a little hill dom inated by the Green mountains, which overshadow this village. In the fam ily plot lie the mother of the ITesi denl, ancestors and kinsmen, and in tne same grassy row where the grave was dug are spaces reserved for the last resting places of the President. John and his mother. Offlcinl.H With Party. •Much of official Washington, in cluding eight cabinet members, and the Speaker of the nation's House of Rep resentatives, and the governors of two states, attended the services. The party from Washington came in the closely guarded train, which was halted at Northampton for services in the Ed wards Congregational Church, where Calvin was a member. After the last note of taps had echoed away the family group went for a short time to the old white farmhouse of the President’s father. John C. Cooltdge, where the Presi dent took his oath of office on August 3 a year ago. Then, accompanied by the elder Coolidge, the little family, broken now by death, started on the journey back to Washington. The funeral party upon arrival yesterday at the Ludlow railroad station, thirteen miles away, halted as the six marines from the presi dential yacht Mayflower, who had guarded the boy's bier constantly in Washington and or. the train, car ried the casket to the waiting hearse. Then the procession, more than a mile long, drove over the long road among the hills to the burial ground. Walk Up Hillside. The party was forced to walk up the hillside to the spot where the grave had been prepared. After the marines had lowered the casket into place, a mixed quartet sang “My Faith Looks Up to Thee.” Rev. Ken neth B. Welles, Northampton pastor, who had accepted Calvin Into the church, read a few short passages from the Bible, then offered a brief prayer. Softly, again, the quartet sang, "Savior. Like a Shepherd Lead Us." After reciting the verses of the hymn "He Leadeth Me.” Rev. Jason N. Pierce, pastor of the First Congre gational Church, in Washington, read the commitment service. In the course of the prayer Mrs. Coolldge brushed away tears and leaned heavily upon the President. The hands of the eider John Cool idge. holding his hat, trembled no ticeably. On the hillside and on the slope across the road were gathered hundreds of villagers, silent and sympathetic. Mrs. Coolidge Comforted. The strains of a hymn comforted the sorrowing mother, however, and. looking up, she seemed to take re newed strength. Taps were sounded then by the same marine bugler who had sounded the notes at the funerals of former ITesident "Wilson and President Hard ing and at the services for America’s Unknown Soldier. As the exercises ended Boy Scouts, to which organization Calvin had be longed, filed by the grave, each drop ping a rose as he passed. The services at the cemetery were short, lasting less than twenty min utes. After the services a detail of ten enlisted men of the Vermont Na tional Guard, under the command of Capt. K. P. Underwood, was placed on guard over the boy's grave. They will remain on duty at the cemetery until Sunday. Additional troopers were posted on the corners and roads nearby. Luncheon at Old Home. After the ceremony at the grave, the President's car, carrying the President, Mrs. Colldge, their son John, the grandfather, John C. Cool idge, and Mrs. Andrew Goodhue, Mrs. Coolldge’s mother, drove to the Cool idge homestead, where, with a few close relatives they were served a simple luncheon. Following a time-honored custom not without its touch of pathos, to day the President took his son John out to the front veranda and there, on the doorpost, marked his height and the date. Then, a little above, the President drew & second line and marked It "C. C.,” the height that Calvin would have been. The post was marked many times, each apparently on the occasion of some new visit of the boys to the homestead. The sun had dropped far toward the bills in the west as the little family group, already far behind the time at first arranged for their de parture, turned away from the old homestead on their return to Lud low and thence fcy train for Wash ington. It was nearly 4:30 standard time as the last car swung out of the village. D. C. QUARTET RETURNS. Four Who Sang at Coolidge Boy’s Funeral Back. The Washington Quartet, composed of Fred East, basso; J. F. M.

German official attitude on the ques tion of evacuating the Ruhr, declar ing that definite enactment of legis lative measures required by the Dawes report must forthwith be an swered by the economic and political liberation of the Ruhr, as the experts expressly declared that Germany ob viously would be incapacitated to fulfill the condition as long as her financial and economic unity remained disrupted. Any Anglo-French pact affecting the Dawes report which falls to win America’s approval is doomed to de feat in the opinion of the Kreuz Zei tung, nationalist organ, which de clares that the part the United States is likely tp play in the London con ference. will, after all, 1 decisively de termine its progress.” THE EVENING STAR.

State Officials Give Up, Both North and South Carolina au thorities reported yesterday that after twenty-four hours of searching they have been unable to find a single clue that might lead to the finding of the officer.

Dick inson, nephew of the Secretary of State, the Department of State sent a plea for executive clemency to the British embassy. The consul general at Ottawa was further requested to reinforce this plea by personal repre sentations. These were unavailing. Workers on behalf of Muir based their appeal on his youth—he was twenty-one years old —and the lack of criminal intent. Although sym pathy was abundant among Canadian officials tl.e law would permit of but one Interpretation in their eyes. The boy’s mother arrived In Valley field last night.

The Brazilian cruiser which was sent to Buenos Aires to participate in the celebration of the Argentine In dependence day. July 9, yesterday re ceived orders to depart at full speed for Santos.

Famed Filipino Twins Here For Brief Vacation Period Simplicio and Lucio Godina, Joined To . gether Above the Hips, Decline to Be Surgically Separated . Back in Washington for a few months’ vacation, Simplicio and Lucio Godina, famed Filipino twins, whose bodies are joined above the hips, to day announced in an interview that, although they have been assured at Walter Reed Hospital and Johns Hop kins University that separation can be accomplished successfully by sur gery, they prefer to remain as God made them and go through life bound to each other. When one dies the other will live but a few moments, it is believed, but this is as they prefer it. De voutly religious, they feel this is the will of the Creator, who allowed them to come into the world as they are. Such they will remain. T. R. Yangco, widely remembered in official and diplomatic circles here as the former resident commissioner from the Philippine Islands, is with them. He is their legal guardian. He was present while they talked, interested and lively, anent them selves. Smilingly Announces Motto. ■'United, we stand: divided, we fall,” said Lucio, smilingly. ‘Thus we are and thus we shall remain." echoed Simplicio. "We know we have two souls and two consciences and there is no doubt about us being two peo ple.” he continued, while Lucio in terrupted now and then with an af firmation. "We do not think the same thoughts at the same time, and neither are we always entirely in accord on various things. But we feel htat we do not want to be separated. We have no fear of death because we have been assured that the operation would be comparatively simple. But we are happy as we are; we are con- HANIHARA LEAVES D. C. Goes to Coast to Sail for Japan.

He hao already made farewell visits to the White House, State Department and the various foreign embassies and legations, and today spent most of his time in the society of his friends in diplomatic circles. While the ambassador Is go ing home on leave of absence, the im pression prevails, in officials circles, that he will not return to Washing ton and will be transferred to an other post of duty either in Japan or Europe.

A Heat-Eelisting Welcome. Tram the Chariot. An Irishman and his wife at the theater for the first time. The wife noticed the word “asbestos" printed on the curtain. “Faith, Pat, and what does ‘asbes tos’ on the curtain mean?*’ “Be still. Mag, don’t show your Ig norance. it Is the Latin for ‘wel come.’ tent; why should we do such a thing? This is how we are and this is how we shall stay.” And the twin agreed. What hurt them deeply though was the refusal of accommodations, when the clerk caught sight of them, at a hotel where they had lived when formerly in Washington. They quick ly found rooms at a second hotel. Most hurtful to their feelings, how ever. they said, was the fact that they were told almost in so many word* that they were not wanted at the hotel where they were re jected. They could understand such treatment might be accorded were they not cultured and refined. But it is beyond them, they declared, after they were given the freedom of the port of Naples and high honors on the European continent, during a tour, why Washington should have a hotel which would turn down a re quest for accommodation. They lived here for a year and a half, while Mr. Yangco was on Capitol Hill. It wasn't fifteen minutes after the In terview got under way before they were recalling spots of special interest in their memory - of the city. One particularly important point is the foot of Ordway street, where they narrowly missed death one winter day during a sleigh ride. Boy* Happy and Content. The boys have grown a foot, literally, since they were last in Washington. They are iiappy and contented with life. They seem to enjoy themselves thorough ly. Mr. Yangco doesn’t hesitate to state how much he thinks of his wards, and they in turn have no reluctance In stat ing how deeply they are attached to him. He is seeing to it that they receive the best possible education. And the thing that is holding up decision as to whether thev remain in Washington for studies is the fact that such an arrangement would cause them to be away from their guardian, who wants to be near them and they desire to be with him.

LA FOLLETTE MEN ATTACKBARRIERS Nelson Working to Overcome Obstacles to Independent’s Name on Ballots. \ By Consolidated Pre«». CHICAGO, July 11.—Obstacles are rising to hamper the inclusion of the name of Robert Marion La Follette on the November ballots as an inde pendent candidate for President, but Congressman John M. Nelson, man ager of the La Follette campaign, claims that preparations have been made to meet the situation in each state. Despite difficulties, he says that every voter in the nation will find the candidate's name on his ballot, either as an independent or as repce sentative of the Farmer-Labor or So cialist party. Theodore Roosevelt, when he or ganized the Bull Moose party in 1912 was unable to get recognition in three states. Election laws in those commonwealths prevented inclusion of the new party designation on the ballots. Most of the present difficulties are arising in states which require peti tions signed by varying proportions of the voters, in order to obtain In dependent representation. Most com monwealths give until one month be fore the November election for inde pendent candidates to file petitions and gain a place on the ballot. A comprehensive survey has just been made of the various state require ments, by the legislative reference library bureau of Wisconsin, for Sen ator La Follette. This revealed, so Representative Nel son maintains, that Idaho alone pre sented serious difficulties. Inde pendent candidates elsewhere were reported to be provided for through petition. California, however, is now reported to be presenting new trouble, and It is explained that there, if necessary, the Socialist party may be called upon. The Socialists this year have no candidate of their own. but have agreed to back the La Follete move ment.

MANUFACTURERS PLAN TO BRING OUT VOTERS National Association to Carry on Campaign Through 200,000 Members. Aroused by a statistical report that while in 1898. 80 per cent of the eligible voters of the country cast their ballots, less than 50 per cent exercised their right to franchise In 1920, the National Association of Manufacturers today notified its Washington office that the more than 100,000 manufacturers of the United States immediately will inaugurate a “get-out-the-vote" campaign. The effort will be non-partisan and in the broad spirit of urging every one to go to the polls and vote—vote as they please—but vote, according to John E. Edgerton, president of the association. He adds that if the people all would vote, there need be no fear of radicalism or bolshevism, as the overwhelming number of con servative Americans would over balance a radical move. "It is neither our disposition nor our intention to suggest to any one what party ticket he shall vote." President Edgerton explains, "nor for what man on any ticket he shall vote. Our thought is non-partisan; our activity will be equally non partisan. We do, and shall, appeal for a citizenship which performs, as against one which sleeps.” National organizations of all kinds, industrial, commercial, labor, civic, church and fraternal, will he directly urged, the association plans, to throw themselves into the campaign with the view of bringing about an elec tion that will be truly representative of the will of the people.

Yet they snapped their camera several times and obtained remarka able photographs of the city—pictures in which the buildings, even the auto mobiles in the streets, were defined clearly. That they were able to make pic tures of objects invisible to them was duo to three factors—an extra-long focus camera, super-speed film, and a “minus blue" ray filter that absorbed the ground haze. No aerial photo graph ever before had been made from, such a height as six miles. NEW BOOTLEGGER DRIVE. Police Seek to Rid Downtown Dis trict of Hooch Venders.
