RECEIVER SOUGHT i Suit Asks That Assets of Commonwealth Corporation Be Taken in Charge. David S, Levy of New York, on be half of himself and other stockhold ers of the Commonwealth Finance Corporation of Delaware, today filed suit in the District Supreme Court for the appointment of a receiver to take over assets of the corporation in Washington, including equities in a number of large apartment? and office buildings, said to have been financed by the company. Joined as defendants with the company are its former officers. Henry D. Tudor, Charles C. Dickson, Harry L. Bur rage, L. M. Umsted and N. A. Merrill of New York and Theodore U. Weed of Washington. The defendants are charged with dissipating assets of the corporation totaling $7,500,000 since January. 1921. The plaintiff claims that the indi vidual defendants, or some of them, formed a corporation in South Dakota and later Induced tin- stockholders to exchange for stock in the Delaware corporation and transferred all the assets of the parent corporation to the,flew one. The officers voted them syves excessive salaries, it is claimed. u nd in conjunction with a Washing ton appraiser, said to be the brother in-law of one of the defendants, in duced the corporation to invest $6.- 000,000 in loans and budding of ho tels. apartment houses and office buildings. These assets, which were in casn and Liberty bonds, the court is told, were invested through the alleged mismanagement of the officers, were invested in speculative loans, in the purchase of second, third and even fourth deeds of trust, and in specu lative building operations. In all these alleged doubtful in vestments, it is asserted, the indi vidual defendants made "large and secret profits,” while the corporation sustained extensive losses. So great has been the damage to the company. It is stated, that a receiver has been named by a New York court in a suit filed there. This receiver states in an affidavit attached to the suit that the assets of the corporation had been removed from New York before his appoint ment. Attorneys Robert H. McNeill of the locar bar and Attorneys Bitkin & Rosensohn of New York, for the plaintiff, ask an injunction to prevent disposition of the equities in the Washington real estate. The company was mentioned in a Senate report, which claimed the ex istence of a real estate "ring’’ in Washington. TWO KILLED IN CRASH. Two Others Injured as Train Hits Auto. ANDERSON. S. C..

ALIENIST CAN’T SAY WHO STRUCK FATAL BLOW WITH CHISEL (Continued from First Page.) Mr. Crowe that the boys did not tell him which originated the crime, or did he have any notes which might help him answer, that he had not gone into that phase in the examina tion. "Doctor, would you not come to the conclusion that if a moral, de cent, clean-living man had committed a crime of this sort, he certainly was insane?" asked Mr. Crowe. "I should not be of any opinion whatsoever, it should be gone into, replied the witness. "If you found that person, or per sons. who had committed this crime prior to that time had been cheats at cards, firebugs, thieves and per verts. you wouldn’t be surprised, would you?" asked the prosecutor. "Yes,” was the reply. "In what respect 7” asked Mr. Crowe. "It is a much more remarkable crime," said Dr. Healy. Cowboy Picture* Cited. Mr. Crowe went into the matter of the childhood pictures of Loeb in cowboy and Indian suits, introducing one Dr. Healy bad described as show ing "a tense little face." Mr. Crowe tried to have the witness agree that the lad in the picture merely had been assuming a facial expression in keeping with the idea lent by the suits. Questions by Mr. Crowe as to the meaning of "insanity” were ruled out by Judge Caverly. The prosecutor has sought diligently to have intro duced a statement by defense wit nesses that Loeb and Leopold are in sane and thereby cause a jury trial. Dr. Healy and Sir. Crowe fenced craftily, the witness refusing to haz ard opinions on generalities. Mr. Crowe went through the crime, as confessed by the youths, step by step, asking Dr. Healy after each as sertion: "Was that intellect or child ish phantasy working when they did that?” Intellect Responsible. Almost invariably Dr. Healy re plied: “It was their intellect working.” “In other words, every detail of this crime is the result of intellect and not phantasy?" asked Mr. Crowe. "I think so," replied the doctor. Mr. Crowe sought to bring out that certain emotion displayed by the youths when their alibis were broken down could be described as “fear." "Making those assumptions,” re plied the doctor, “I should say that was fear.” "Loeb is the master criminal here, isn’t he?" asked Crowe. “Yes, I think so," replied the doc tor. Didn't l Common Sense. "1 don’t think they were using much common sense in doing the crime at all,” Dr. Healy replied to an other question bearing on the intel lectual advisement of the deed.” “Doctor, in planning the crime it self and steps to protect themselves from detection, the only method in which that differs in this case from the average case of a criminal is that these men showed a little higher grade of intellect, isn’t it?” asked the prosecutor. ’ "No.” Dr. Healy replied. "Isn't there anything in their acts here which exhibits a higher intel lect?” asked Crowe. "Yes, their ability to plan." was the reply. Calm in Examination. Dr. Healy retained his equanimity under hot fire of the cross exami nation by Mr. Crowe, smiling easily and displaying no nevrousness as the prosecutor sought to destroy the value of his testimony as a matter meriting consideration in fixing punishment. At one time Mr. Crowe and Dr. Heaiy got into a lengthy comparison of juvenile courts and work and crim inal courts. Dr. Healy explaining most of his work was with boys under 19. “Then you have not had much ex perience with criminals springing from millionaire families and who are college graduates, have you. doctor?” asked Mr. Crowe. The defense ob jected. ...... Another question by Mr. Crowe brought an objection from Mr. Har row a part of it being, “because no 18-year-old boy ever has been hang ed in Illinois." At this point court recessed for lunch. Preparing Rebuttal. The prosecution, foiled so far in at tempts to turn the hearing into a jury trial on an insanity plea, is pre paring rebuttal evidence of its own alienists to show that the slayers were intellectually capable of plot ting the mental irresponsibility de fense theory. Both conscienceless, egotistic and selfish, Loeb would have killed mem bers of his family or his counsel if pleasure or publicity was to be gained thereby, and Leopold thought he was always right and the world was wrong, according to Dr. Healy’s tes timony. Each had peculiarities in his mental life, each arrived at the pe culiarities by a different route and each supplemented the other’s al ready abnormal needs in a unique way, he said. The Franks murder was the result of diseased motivation, he averred. Dr, Bernard Glueck. New Tork. who ■ Is scheduled to follow Dr. Healy on THE EVENING STAR, ‘WASHINGTON’, D. C. TUESDAY.

There has been much speculation in | diplomatic circles as to what Secre | tary of State Hughes might have said I to Prime Minister Macdonald, eluring j the Secretary’s recent visit here, with I regard to Russian recognition. Dike wise 'tiie German delegates here for discussion of the Dawes plan are eager to know whether the break down of the Anglo-Russian negoti ations will affect their own negoti ations with the allies. The collapse of the Russian negoti ations here was almost as sensational as the signing of the treaty of Rapalio by the Russians and Ger mans during the Geona Conference. Dike Former Conferences, The negotiations at London be tween the British and the Russians did not differ basically from the ne gotiations with the Soviet govern ment of all the great powers at Genoa and Lausanne. For nearly four months the same arguments have been repeated in va rious forms. The Russians wanted loans aggregating £50,000,000 and wanted England to guarantee them: they also wanted the £10.000,000 be longing to Czarist Russia which is in English banks. M. Rakovsky and his associates, however, apparently were unable to make any satisfactory pledges about the payment of Russia's pre-war debts and were not willing to enter into any agreement which might have been construed to imply that the Soviet government had no legal right to confiscate foreign property in Russia. The breakdown of the negotiations for a new trade agreement leaves the Soviet government exactly where it stood before the negotiations began, in to far as its relations with Great Britain are concerned. The English banks will not turn over the czarist gold The special Russian delegation will return to Moscow, M. Rakovsky re maining as trade commissioner, just as he did before the negotiations opened. The Anglo-Russlan conference in London was convened on April 14 following recognition of the Soviet regime by the labor government un der Premier MacDonald in fulfill ment of w’hat was virtually a cam paign pledge. The purpose of the conference was to settle all the out standing claims between the two countries, some involving pre-war debts on the part of Russia and oth ers growing out of the Soviet gov ernment's seizures, under its nation alization policy, of property belong ing to British subjects. Proceeding* Dragged. The proceedings dragged from the start, despite the efforts of the Brit ish to speed them up. The Russians made efforts to se cure a loan, which they desired the British government to guarantee This guarantee the British flatly re fused to give, Mr. MacDonald declar ing that the British bankers de manded recognition of Russia’s pre war debts as a prerequisite to any advance. Another of the stumbling-blocks was the Russians' insistence that the British recognize extensive counter claims based on damages suffered In consequence of armed foreign inter vention in Russia after the revolu tion. The campaign of Gen. Dent kin, Admiral Kolchak and other anti- Bolshevik leaders were cited in this connection. Last Attempt Looked Hopeful. Christian Rakovsky, the chief Soviet delegate, after a hurried trip to Mos cow returned to London last week bearing a new set of proposals, which, it was hoped, according to Moscow dispatches, would remove the ob stacles to an understanding. It was thought by the Russians that these terms, described as more liberal, would satisfy the British holders of the old Russian bonds and result eventually in a loan under British government guarantee. In framing the new proposals, how. ever, the Russian commissars, it was added, were particularly careful to conserve the Soviet laws on national ization of property, as they were against sacrificing any of their revo lutionary principles.

MAIN 79M J HI CAMPAIGN PRESSED ON PUBLIC DIKING More Arrests Made Last Night and Collateral Is Increased. With several more arrests last night by police and prohibition agents for violation of the liquor laws, predic tion was issued today from the office of Harry M. Luckett, chief of the fourth division, general prohibition agents, that a vigorous campaign will continue here until drinking in public places is stopped. Increase in collateral for those ar rested also was meted out in two cases last night, one from the roof of the Arlington Hotel and the other at Le Paradis. Collateral Increased. The previous collateral of $25 for persons found with intoxicants in publip places was increased to SSO in the case of Fred S. Grab, 28, of 1726 M street, arrested on the Arlington Hotel roof on a charge«of illegal pos session. An additional $25 was also] demanded on a charge of Intoxication. Ixjuis A. Williams, 37, 3012 Fif teenth street, was arrested at the Le Paradis because it was charged that he had liquor in his possession. Illegal possession of intoxicants was the only charge preferred against him and he was permitted liberty on SSO collateral It is probable that a still further increase in the amount of collateral will be made if viola tions continue. Drop in on Party. Lieut, o. T. Pavis and Sergt. j. e McQuade, not numbered among the especially invited guests, attended a party at 1635 Vermont avenue last night and caused a scampering on part of those who had been invited.
