LONDON, August 6.—Germany's
delegates to the allied conference to
day definitely raised two vital ques
tions for solution before the Dawes
plan becomes effective.
The first is French military evacu
ation of the Ruhr. The second is the
necessity of withdrawing- allied rail
way men from the occupied area aside
from Cologne and the district held by
the British.
These two points were raised in a
letter accompanying the memorandum
in which Germany comments fully
upon the agreement reached by the
allies during the past three weeks.
Agree on Main Points.
In the main Germany’s ideas coin
cide with the allies, but wherever al
lied decisions seem Inadequate to
cover the eventual effects the Ger
man delegates have explained what
they believe necessary to make oper
ation easier.
Marx and Stresemann worked prac
tically the whole night in completing
their comments, which they confined
to IS typewritten pages, thus giving
evidence of their desire to complete
the work at the earliest possible mo
ment.
It is significant that the two points
considered most important were left
to the covering letter accompanying
the memorandum. Germany in this
way recognized the fact that the pres
ent conference was too limited in its
scope to include the highly technical
business of getting the French out
of the Ruhr.

PARIS, August 6.—Fear, misappre
hension and suspicion are the main
sentiments expressed by the entire
French press today in analyzing the
probabilities and potential dangers
which France still is facing at the
London conference.
The leading journals see
views and sentiments
tween German and British statesmen
a permanent danger to France’s se
curity and MacDonald's speech Tues
day in the House of Commons in
creased the suspicions of the French
that once the Dawes plan is reported
accepted, the Bitish will find away
lo force France to give up entirely
her freedom of action, which might
force her to take steps either to re
cover reparations or assure the se
curity of her frontiers.
Cabinet Changes a Factor.
It has been stated that the re-estab
lishment of the "entente cordiale" and
good will with the present German gov
ernment is sufficient guarantee against
eventual German aggression, but this
temporary friendliness between France.
Great Britain and Germany may disap
pear with the vicissitudes of home poli
tics.
What will happen to the entente the
day MacDonald is replaced by another
administration less friendly to France
or if Poincare replaces Herriot, or what
will be still more feared, if the extreme
Nationalists gain complete control of
Germany? These are the questions being
asked here.
"A castle of peace built on a sand
foundation will collapse and the whole
work of well meaning statesmen now in
London will become a dead letter,’’ an
influential senator told the writer.
SOCIALISTS EXEBT PBESSUBE.
By the Associated Press.
LONDON. August 6.—Pressure is
being brought on the international con
ference by Dr. Rudolph Breitscheld,
leader of the German Socialists, and
the French Socialists who are now in
London, to effect immediate military
evacuation of the Ruhr.
The proponents of Immediate evac
uation indicate that the German gov
ernment is likely to fall if its delega
tion returns to Berlin without a prom
ise that the Ruhr and other occupied
districts will be immediately freed of
foreign troops.
This; question, although outside the
agenda of the conference, is for the
moment transcending all others. It
is being stressed by the German dele
gates who represent a minority gov
ernment, whose existence, they insist,
would be seriously threatened if the
military evacuation is not achieved.
The French Socialists are support
ing the position taken by their Ger
man colleagues and are intimating
that the French domestic political sit
uation also demands compliance with
the German request.

LA FQLLETTE TICKET
FACESDIFFjCULTIES
Rivalry Among Supporters
Seen by Democratic and
Republican Leaders.
LABOR VOTE NOT SOLID
2.75 Beer Issue Involved in Vote
of Workers, and Socialists’
Stand a Factor.
BY G. GOULD LINCOLN.
The candidacy of Senator La Fol
lette and Senator Wheeler for Presi
dent and Vice President is going to
have its difficulties riding on an even
keel from now to November 4, elec
tion day, in the opinion of Republican
and Democratic leaders who are
watching closely every movement of
the third ticket. V’arious groups of
progressives and liberals who have
indorsed the third ticket, they pointed
out today, are strongly opposed to
each other on fundamental issues.
For that reason, they contend, Sen
ator La Follette will have trouble
keeping them lined up during the
coming three months.
For example, they point out, the La
Foliettee ticket has been indorsed by
the Socialist party and by the Ameri
can Federation of Labor. The Amer
ican Federation of Labor and the
Socialist party are strongly opposed
to each other on matters of much im
portance. Dispatches from Atlantic
City, where the American Federation
of Labor executive council is now In
session, indicate that the friction be
tween Socialists and federation lead- j
ers may not be long coming. Plain- j
ly. the federation leaders, say, they
will not be guided by anything that j
Morris Hillquit of the Socialist party |
and prominent La Follette leader in
New York may say or do in regard to
candidates for Congress. The feder
ation will go Us own gait, no matter
what other groups supporting La Fol
lette may do. It will support Re
publicans and it will support Demo
crats whom the federation considers
friendly to organized labor.
May Affect Catholic Vote.
The indorsement of the La Follette-
Wheeler ticket by the Socialists may
have some effect upon the Catholic
voters, it was pointed out also. The
Roman Catholic Church has not look
ed with favor on the Socialist move
ment.
The Anti-Saloon League, through
its general counsel, Wayne B. Whee
ler, is out with a statement attack
ing the American Federation of La
bor because of its statement in sup
port of 2.75 per cent beer, contained
in the text of the statement given out
when the executive council indorsed
the La Follette-Wheeler candidacy.
The Anti-Saloon League has kept
quiet in regard to candidacy of Sen
ator La Follette, although the of
ficials of the league say that his rec
ord In the Senate has been wet. ex
cept on the submission of the reso
lution proposing prohibition amend
ment to the Constitution to the
States. On prohibition for the Dis
trict of Columbia, on the passage oi
the Volstead act over the President’s
veto and on the anti-beer bill and
other measures, the vote of the Wis
consin Senator has been “wet.” But
the Anti-Saloon League officers ex
pect Senator La Follette to declare
before long for law enforcement, and
they say they are confident he will
enforce the law should he be elected.
Senator La Follette, they say, does
not want to have the big issues of
his campaign obscured by drawing a
red herring across their trail in the
shape of the prohibition question.
But the Anti-Saloon League could
not, it is said, afford to let pass in
silence the declaration of the Amer
ican Federation of Labor, in an
nouncing its support of La Follette,
favoring 2.75 per cent beer.
“Labor will follow Mr. Gompers on
labor policies, but it will not follow
him to the barroom brewery control
of labor union policies, declared Mr.
Wheeler. “There is nothing new in
the indorsement of 2.75 per cent beer
by certain wet leaders.”
Beep Law Possibility.
It is pointed out by Republicans
here that if the La Follette-Wheeler
combination should be successful and
'their proposals with regard to amend
ment of the Constitution should be
adopted—notably that which would
make it possible for Congress to
override action of the Supreme Court
declaring a law unconstitutional—
Congress might be able to put
through a 2.75 per cent beer law and
hold it constitutional, even though
the court held it opposed to the
“dry” amendment to the Constitution.
The railroad brotherhoods were
strongly represented in the Confer
ence for Progressive Political Action,
which Indorsed the candidacy of La
Follette at Cleveland, practically
nominating him. The brotherhoods—
so far as their officials and their
members are concerned, however—
are not a unit in lining up behind
Senator La Follette. W. G. Lee, grand
president of the Brotherhood of Rail
way Trainmen, has announced that

GREENLAND CONDITIONS
HELD WORST IN YEARS
Doubt Whether Supply Ship Can

By the Associated Press.
REYKJAVIK, Iceland, August 6.
Lieuts. Lowell H. Smith and Eric
Nelson, the United States Army world
aviators, expect to remain here sev
eral days following their stormy trip
from Hoefn Hornafjord, on the east
ern Icelandic coast, yesterday. The
flyers said they could start today on
their Greenland flight except for the
uncertainty of the situation at Ang
magsalik. where the worst ice condi
tions in years are reported.
The airmen do not like the pros
pect of a 4SO-mile flight over open
water with no certainty of a proper
landing place. The reports from
Angmagsalik are conflicting, there
being no assurance as yet that the
supply steamer Gertrud Rask, re
ported yesterday caught in the ice
15 miles off shore, had been able to
deliver her supplies for the airmen's
next stop.
Uncertain of Plans.
Maj. Clarence E. Crumrine of the
United States Army Air Service, who
was awaiting the flyers here when
they arrived yesterday, is canvassing
the situation, but is uncertain yet
when it will be feasible to continue
the flight. Preparations were made
early today to pull the planes ashore
for minor repairs. This work will
require less than a day's time. The
machines came through their battle

the planes were forced to proceed
sideways, the engines working at an
80-mlle-an-hour rate, but making
scarcely any progress.
When the Chicago and New Or
leans arrived over Reykjavik they
found the harbor crowded with ship
ping. It had been planned on this
account for them to land outside the
sea wall, but this was impracticable
because of the rough water. The pi

however, and made a beautiful land

they had to work Inside the harbor.

SIX PROSTRATIONS
IN HEAT-WAVE TRAIL
Continued Sweltering Until Fri
day, Is Forecaster’s Prediction
for Washington.
With six victims already listed
against the heat wave that has blank
eted Washington since yesterday
morning, it appeared that the city
would have to continue sweltering
until Friday, according to forecasts
at the Weather Bureau today.
Despite the fact that late tonight
or tomorrow local thundershowers
are on the program, the indications
were that the heat would not be re
lieved before Friday morning. The
temperature, which has been way up
in the nineties for the last day or so,
may drop a few notches because of
the showers, but the humidity they
will bring is expected to make the
lower temperature felt just as much
as if the thermometer stayed high
with dry weather.
Slight southern and southwestern
breezes are included in the forecast.
The four stricken with heat yester
day include:
Policeman L. R. Beall of the fourth
precinct, who was prostrated at roll
call in the station house. He was
treated by Dr. Criswell of Emergency
Hospital; condition not serious.
William Ratcliffe, prostrated at
Thirteenth and D streets, and treated
at Emergency Hospital.

PARK CONVERSION
REPORTISDENIED
City Heads Have No Plan to
Make Franklin Square Auto
Parking Space.
Although the Commissioners are
considering a recommendation for the
widening of K street between Four
teenth and Sixteenth street, they de
clared today they have no intention
of seeking to convert the attractive
Franklin Square into a parking
ground for automobiles.
“I certainly am opposed to using
Franklin Square for the parking of
automobiles,” was the comment of
Commissioner Rudolph, chairman of
the board.
"Such a proposal has never been
brought to my attention and 1 am
not convinced that it would be an
advisable move,” said Engineer Com
missioner Bell, who is also a member
of the newly created National Capital
Park Commission.
Inspector Albert J. Headley, chief
of the Police Traffic Bureau, credited
with having put forth the proposal,
said he had merely suggested it as
a possible way of providing parking
space, but he declared he had no in
tention of recommending it and that
he felt sure it would not be done.
Would Buy Property.
What the Commissioners are con
sidering is that a part of the $900,000
to be collected annually from the
gasoline tax be used to purchase
private property near the congested
section for municipal auto parking
lots.
As to the widening of K street,
Maj. Bell said a recommendation had
been made by the highway division,
but had not yet been approved by the
Commissioners.
“We probably will give the prop
erty owners on that street a:t oppor
tunity to be heard on the proposal,”
Maj. Bell added.
The Engineer Commissioner In
dicated that he Is in favor of using
the small triangular park in front
of Center Market at Ninth street for
the parking of automobiles, but with
out removing the large trees located
there. Maj. Bell said that is not a
particularly attractive park.
It developed today that Assistant
Engineer Commissioner William H.
Holcombe, chairman of the Traffic
Board, has other downtown streets in
mind that he would like wid
ened. He mentioned E street within
the congested section, Tenth street
north of F street and certain
stretches of Twelfth street.
Opposes One-way Streets.
Maj. Holcombe said he does not be
lieve Washington needs one-way
streets and that the gradual widening
of the main traffic arteries downtown
would be a step toward the elimina
tion of the one-way rule.
In the widening of streets, how
ever, approval of Congress is ob
tained in the annual appropriation

walk and 33 feet 10 inches of park
ing on each side.
The recommendation being con
sidered by the Commissioners is that
there be a 25-foot sidewalk on each
aide and two 30-foot roadways for
traffic separated by a center strip
of 37 feet 8 inches wide for parking
of automobiles.
Ciicle Included In Plan.
The Plan further contemplates a cir
cle at Sixteenth and K streets as a
traffic regulation improvement. Maj.
Holcombe pointed out there are two
lines of trees on K street and that In
the proposed plan the interior row
would be retained.
Both Maj. Holcombe and Inspector
Headley declared today that in order
to solve the parking problem down
town the man who leaves his car on
the streets all day must be brought to
the point of parking It outside the con
gested area and walking a few blocks
to his office.

DNIONISMSAIL
PUBLIC LIBRARIES
Librarians’ Union Charges
Censorship and Control to
Carnegie’s Gifts.
By the Associated Pres*.
ATLANTIC CITY*, X. J., August 6.
The administrative system of the
great public libraries founded by
philanthropists, and specifically the
Carnegie chain of such institutions,
was assailed In a report submitted
today by the Librarians’ Union of the
American Federation of Labor to the
executive council of the Federation.
It is charged that:
"Carnegie libraries are not con
trolled by the municipalities in which
they exist and to which they have
been given.
“Such libraries are controlled by
boards of trustees in no sense re
sponsible to the people, but ap
pointed! instead, by the foundation
themselves, or subject to their ap
proval. Such control is perpetual.
“Public moneys, appropriated by
cities and States, pass out of the
control of the givers immediately and
are administered by the foundation
or their trustees.
Charge Censorship.
“There is rapidly coming into being
a system under which only books
approved in a certain manner may
be placed on the shelves of public
libraries administered by foundations.
This amounts to a censorship and is
so intended.
“An unjust certification of libraries
has come into being and is being
urged generally as a law of the fu
ture. The system already exists by
law in three States.”
Submitting their report at the an
nual conference of the executive
council, at the Ambassador Hotel in
this city, the librarians’ union urges,
with t other things, that library em
ployes become subject to the civil
service.
Seek Municipal Control.
They urge further that the Ameri
can Federation of Labor seek and
promote some means of restoring full
municipal or local control over public
libraries, no matter by whom such in
stitutions were founded or financed.
The librarians' union says it is satis
fied, after a thorough Investigation of
the administration of public libraries,
that they are public utilities which
must not be controlled by any agency
that is not constantly responsible to
the public.
“We shall go into these charges
most thoroughly,” said Matthew Well,
vice president of the American Feder
ation of Labor and spokesman for
this executive council. “This Indi
cates a situation intolerable in a free
country, among free people.
“We have stood for absolute
freedom from censorship of what the
people read as well as of the plays
they sees. We have found that the
advocates of censorship miss few op
portunities to forward their danger
ous ideas.
“We believe that freedom to think
and to know is a real right which be

10 D. C. MEN DIE
IN l» 5 HURT
Georges Thiery One of Vic
tims of Accident on Balti
more Boulevard.
Two men from Washington killed
outright, two others possibly fatally
injured and three more or less seriously
hurt was the toll of an automobile
crash on the Baltimore boulevard
early today, in which drunkenness is
declared by Maryland police to have
figured.
One of the dead men has been
identified as Georges Thiery of 1403
Sixth street. The other is believed
to have been Emile Torre, a close
friend of Thiery, and a boarder at
the same house on Sixth street.
The injured are Ersiliio Bona, Law
rence Regis, Davis Tarino. Louis Cer
vettl, Paul Gnetta, all living here at
1357 Ohio avenue. Tarino and Gnetta are
in a desperate condition in St. Agnes’
Hospital In Baltimore, and Bona and
Regis are under arrest.
Charge Driver Was Drank.
Bona, who drove the car, is charged
with operating an automobile while
intoxicated and Regis is held as a
material witness. They are being
held without bail at the Halethrope
police station, just on the outskirts of
Baltimore, where a hearing is to be
held tonight. The death car was
owned by Cervetti.
Although the exact time of the ac
cident is not known, it is believed to
have occurred at 5:23 o’clock this
morning. A watch found in Thlery’s
pockets had stopped at that hour and
police say the terrible Impact of the
crash smashed the watch the instant
the wreck occurred.
Bona and his friends were headed
toward Baltimore. just as they
reached Caton avenue, which is only
a few blocks this side of the Balti
more line, a car ahead signaled for
a left-hand turn from the boulevard
into that thoroughfare. Bona was
too close. He blew his horn and the
driver of the other car is said to have
pulled over to the right and stopped,
neglecting to make his turn to give
Bona the right of way.
Crash Into Phone Pole*
As Bona, believed to have been
traveling at a terrific rate of speed,
swept past his rear fenders hooked
in the fenders of the other car. His
own machine careened sharply to the
left, Bona lost control of his wheel
and the automobile smashed head on
into a telegraph pole, hitting with
such force it knocked the pole three
feet out of its original position.
The machine was literally splinterd,

AOCUSEDTOLD HIM
Expert Says Youth Calmly
Admitted Fact in Course of
Mental Examination.
REMARK BRINGS SMILE
TO FACE OF LEOPOLD
Judge, Lawyers and Other Prin
cipal in Case Sit Unmoved by
Eevelation.
By th« Associated Press.
CHICAGO. August 6. —Dr. Bernard
Glueck of New York, testified at the
Pranks hearing this morning that Rich
ard Loeb throughout his mental exam
ination of him had admitted that he
struck the blow with a cold chisel which
killed Bobby Franks.
Throughout the investigation of the
connection of Loeb and Nathan F. Leo
pold, jr.. with the murder the matter
of who actually struck the fatal blow
had been the unsolved mystery. Both
youths, while confessing to the kidnap
ing and slaying, accused the other.
Two defense alienists previously on
the witness stand had failed, they
! testified, to ask the boys as to which
had struck the fatal blow, and the
state had been unable to bring out
the point.
Leopold Smile*.
Loeb remained impassive when Dr.
Glueck testified that he had killed
Bobby Franks. Leopold leaned for
w-ard. a grimace on his face, smiled
slowly and talked with counse'
The statement that Loeb * y
had struck the fatal blow as
brought out under questioning by-
Benjamin Bachrach of defense coun
sel.
“Did Loeb say who struck the
blow? - ’ said Bachrach.
“He told me throughout all details;
that he, Loeb. struck the blow,” re
plied Dr. Glueck.
Judge Caverly and the attorneys
remained Impassive, as had Loeb, when
the testimony was offered. Judge
Caverly leaning calmly on his hand,
elbow on the arm of his chair.
Neither Leopold nor Loeb will tes
tify in the hearing. This was made
clear today by Mr. Darrow.
Although the defense let it be known
that ten or twelve witnesses would
follow the alienists on the stand. In*
eluding some students from the Uni
versity of Michigan, where both
youths formerly were students, and
that surprise testimony is expected, as
to the defendants themselves Mr. Dar
row said:
“One thing I will say definitely. The
defendants themselves will not tes
tify. Neither will any member of
the family in regard to any peculiari
ties, although they may be used to
identify an exhibit or two.”
Justice Incensed.
Incensed by advice given him in let
ters that flood his mail and by state
ments made publicly as to the course
he should pursue in punishing Leo
pold and Loeb, Justice Caverly de
clared today such people were in con
tempt of court.
"It is contempt of court for people
to try to intimidate a court while a
case is on trial and any one who does
it is subject to Indictment,” said
Judge Caverly.
“I will bring in some of these peo
ple one of these days and give them
an opportunity to appeal to the Su
preme Court. The ought to get 30
days on the rock pile at the Bride
well.”
The judge’s remarks were occasion
ed by an address by E. P. Goore, of
the Chicago Association of Commerce,
demanding, as published in the news
papers, that both youths b© hanged
for the kidnaping and killing of Robert
Franks.
Dr. Glueck, the third expert on
mental diseases introduced by the de
fense, was the first on the stand to
day. His specialty has been the study
of patients In the Federal hospital for
the insane at 'Washington, D. C.
Today began hot and sultry and,
for the first time since the hearing
started thirteen days ago, bailiffs and
ushers were not swamped by streams
of spectators storming the building.
Asked how long he would speak
when the hearing reached the argu
ment stage, Clarence S. Darrow. vet
eran chief counsel for the defense, re
plied to the suggestion it might take
him a whole day by saying: “An
American magazine once cabled Oscar
Wilde for terms for writing 60,000
words on some subject, and received
the reply, T did not know there were
that many words.’ ”
Mr. Darrow indicated he might find
enough words for half a court session
or one hour.
Talking along in his monotone, Mr.
Bachrach suddenly Interrupted Dr.
Glueck with a question as to whether
Loeb had admitted who struck the
fatal blow.
Devoid of Emotion.
"I took up with Loeb the Franks
crime and asked him to tell of IC’
testified Dr. Glueck. “Loeb replied
In a most matter-of-fact way, nar

OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla,, August
6-—Representative E. B. Howard of
Tulsa, Klan favored candidate, held
a slight lead over J. C. Walton,
ousted governor and bitter Klan op
ponent, In the race for the Demo
cratic nomination for the United
States Senate, in returns from yes
terday’s primary received early
today.
Unofficial figures from 1,137 of the
2,996 precincts gave Howard 37,482
and Walton 33,814. The other three
candidates apparently are out or the
running.
In the Republican senatorial con
test W. E. Pine of Okmulgee, Klan
indorsed candidate, had a lead ot
nearly 8,000 over his nearest oppo
nent, Eugene Lorton, Tulsa publish
er and adversary of the Klan, when
returns from 456 precincts were
tabulated.
Both Sides Makes Claims.
The southwestern part of the State,
where Walton is said to be a strong
favorite, has but lightly reported. His
supporters declared that when this
section is fully heard from he will be
leading by a good margin. Howard
backers point out that returns from his
congressional district in the northeast
are far from complete, and predict
that later reports will offset any ad
vantage Walton may gain. Returns
also are incomplete from the north
west, including the Panhandle section,
due to a storm late yesterday which
crippled communication facilities.
In seven of the eight congressional
districts incumbents are running for
renomlnation and have comfortable
leads over their opponents. The in
cumbents are seven Democrats and one
Republican. Two of the Democratic
candidates are unopposed.
Former Representative Manuel Her
rick of the eighth district was run
ning behind Representative M. C. Gar
ber of Enid for the Republican nomi
nation in 95 out of 428 precincts, which
gave Garber 4.111 and Herrick 1.065.

KANSAS CITY, August 6.—When
756 complete precincts out of 2.579 in
Kansas had been tabulated, shortly
before noon today, Ben S. Paulen of
Fredonia had taken a commanding
lead over Clyde M- Reed and A. R.
Stubbs In the Republican race for the
gubernatorial nomination in yester
day's Kansas primary. The figures:
Paulen, 24,882; Reed, 18,764; Stubbs,
19,361.
Paulen carried the Klan indorse
ment.
United States Senator Arthur Capper
appeared assured of renomination on
the Republican ticket by a vote of
two to one over his two opponents on
incomplete returns. In only one coun
ty—Pawnee was he behind, and
there only four precincts had been
reported. Returns from 605 precincts
in this race gave: Capper, 30,622;
Sheffield Ingalls, 10,605; Tom D.
Smith, 2,948.
Gov. Jonathan M. Davis, the only
Democrat elected on the State ticket
In 1922, was renominated by an over
whelming majority. Returns from
363 precincts showed him running
more than three to one ahead of
Harry S. Burton, former mayor of
Kansas City, Kans. The totals; Davis,
7,624; Burton, 1,906.

1,962: Ben S. Gaitsklll, 1,739; S. H.
Carr, 1,091: Edward Sapp, 932.
What effect the Ku Klux Klan Is
sue had on the voting was a matter
for speculation. While Paulen, the
Klan Indorsee for the G. O. P. gu
bernatorial nomination, was In the
lead in the three-cornered fight. At
torney General C. B. Griffith, who
drew opposition from the Klan be
cause of his suit to oust the organi
zation from the State, was ahead of
his nearest opponent nearly two to
one. Returns from 426 precincts for
the Republican nomination for attor
ney general gave Griffith 14.391; Jus
tus N. Baird, 7,902; Clarence R. Sow
ers, 3,038.
Returns from 278 precincts for the
Democratic nomination for attorney
general gave Ralph T. O’Neil 3,546,
Thurman Hill 3,500.
Incumbents in Congress were leading
in all the districts where there were
contests.
A storm last night which destroyed
telegraph and telephone service and put
light and power wires out of commis
sion in many sections caused unprece
dented difficulty in reporting the elec
tion. A score of counties, most of them
In western Kansas, were completely
isolated, and returns probably will not
bo received from several until late to
day.
