CLAIM BOY ADMITS
THREEROBBERIES Police Say Youth Held in Gas Station Burglary Was No Novice. Ralph Paul White', 4 9 years old. of 3417 Monroe street admitted partici pation in other robberies, it was said by police today, following- his arrest yesterday by Sergt. Sidney J. Marks in connection with the robbery of the gasoline station of the Standard Oil Company, Harrison street and Con necticut avenue. Those confessions ■were made, it is said, before Detec tives B. W. Thompson and R. H. Mansfield. According to the police. White, *a former employe of Norman W. Oys ter. cafeteria proprietor, admitted having stolen a 150-pound safe con taining less than SIOO from the lat ter’s place of business at 3316 Four teenth street. Antomobile Recovered. It is further asserted that White admitted participation in the robbery of the home of Capt. John S. McKay, U. S. A., 3821 Jenifer street, stealing wearing apparel and a pistol. The automobile found in possession of White and his accomplices yesterday morning belonged to Walter Gib son. Victoria apartments, who re ported it stolen July 29. Manley Marquis Harris. Oak Hill, Va., arrested yesterday by the pre cinct police, also is said to have ad mitted participation in the cafeteria robbery, both prisoners telling of how the robbery was planned and exe cuted. In addition to the foregoing rob beries, White is said to have admit ted participation in the attempted liquor theft in the home of G. W. Foraberg, 4907 Fourteenth street, more than two months ago. Much expensive liquor had been prepared for removal from the premises, and Policeman Guy Rone and a com panion were arrested on the premises. It was charged that they were there to caxt away the liquor. Suspended From Force. Rone’s explanation of his presence on the premises was that he was there in line of duty, having learned that burglars were to remove the liquor from the premises that night. Ho was off duty and out of his pre cinct, however, and was arrested for a grand jury investigation and sus pended from the force. Walter Richard Metz, 17, 1714 Cres cent place, Takoma Park, Md„ who was arrested in the vicinity of the gasoline station yesterday morning and alleged to have been a member of the trio implicated in the robbery, is not alleged to have had any con nection with White in the other rob beries. The third member of the trio has not been caught. Mixed Up His English. From the Pathfinder. Julius Fritz tells about an old Ger man friend so his who got badly tan gled with the English language re cently. It seems that the. old German owns a factory and he learned that his foreman was not getting down to work very early, so he thought he would catch him. He got up early one morning and went to the plant. The foreman, who had received a tip as to what the old man was up to, was down early himself that morn ing. When the old German espied him he remarked: "Ah. I see you’re early of late. You used to be behind before, but now you're first at last." What Pa Said. from the Philadelphia ledger. "So you have got twins at your house,” said Mrs. Besumbe to little Tommy. “Yes, ma'am, two of ’em.” "What are you going to call them?" "Thunder and Lightning." ”W T hy, those are strange names to cell children.” “Well, that’s what Pa called them aa soon as he heard they were in the house.” SPECIAL NOTICES.

Smith of No. 4 precinct, president of the Policemen’s Association, mixed up in a traffic jam near the Auth Pro vision Co., on D between Sixth and Seventh streets southwest, yester day afternoon, which attracted a crowd of several hundred highly amused spectators. President Smith is an expert traffic officer, and, when at head quarters yesterday afternoon a hurry call came from the Auth Provision Co. for assistance, ho , rushed to the spot, discovering the calf had. as he charged, broken the traffic regulations by navigating on the wrong side of the street. Using his best traffic-regulating form the association president finally persuaded the animal, which, he said, seemed to have highly erroneous ideas about the city regulations, to come to a tem porary halt up against a building. There is was roped by an Auth Co. employe and led back to the slaughter pen. marveTsmTree EXISTENCE IN CITY Superintendent of Parking, in Annual Report, Tells of Ob stacles to Be Overcome. Outlining the tremendous handi caps under which Washington's beau i tiful shade trees must not only live i but to bear out such traditions as “The City Beautiful" and "The City I of Trees." Clifford Lanham, superln j tendent of trees and parkings, in his ! annual report submitted to the Com missioners todav_ pointed out that it is remarkable that they live at all. "The condition of the shade trees of Washington is, generally speaking, the best that can be expected when the adverse circumstances attending their growth, health and life are con sidered,” said Mr. Lanham. "For in stance, the city tree is deprived of the natural seepage under which Its country fellow thrives. It depends on its miniature and unnatural park ing for rain water. Contrast this alone with the country tree that has acres of surface seepage and then marvel that the city tree, hemmed In by miles and miles of concrete, its roots writhing about leaky gas mains, blocked by electric conduits and wa ter pipes, livtti at all. Add to these auuarently insurmountable obstacles salt water from ice cream freezers, oil from roadways and motor vehicles, the indifference, of the curbsetter, the conduit layer, the lineman, the plumber and the hardihood and beau ty of our trees present one of those superb feats of adjustment that in my opinion should rank well up in Darwin’s theory of survival and a natural adjustment. Autos Damage Trees. "Latterly another menace has ; arisen. Consider the thousands of automobiles that pass any given point downtown in a single day. Now con sider the hundreds of thousands of cubic feet of poisonous gases that are discharged by these automobiles and that must be neutralized by the life forces of the city tree. Consider this and then do not ask why a tree is apparently failing but rather why it lives at all.” Mr. Lanham reported that 1.034 young trees were planted in their permanent positions during the last fiscal year, a net increase of 976 over the previous year. The majority were l planted for the purpose of filling va cancies in existing rows. The report shows that 1,552 trees were removed during the year for various reasons, 9,610 were sprayed for the extermination of leaf-eating insects, and 10;884 were trimmed. There are now a total of 104.294 curb trees in the District, a decrease of 299 under the preceding year. It has been impossible to plant trees along the recently improved streets. Mr. lanham told the Commis sioners, because of inadequate appro priations and the loss of two nursery sites. CINCINNATI POLICE SPURRED TO COURTESY Safety Director Wants Them Gen tle Except to Hard-Boiled ' Motorists. CINCINNATI, Ohio, August 30 Harsh adjectives which many traffic policemen use on tourists have been officially replaced in Cincinnati by courtesy. The city's traffic police men have become polite salesmen, "selling the city” to strangers. Each guardian of a Cincinnati street corner has been given a letter from William Tudor, safety director, which stresses the point that courtesy is something that costs nothing. He urges traffic officers to he prepared to give a soft word of caution to the motorist who has unintentionally violated a traffic ordinance. He points out that slight violations of traffic laws are often caused by a mind obsessed with cares collected during a day's activity, and adds: "The average driver will appreciate the situation.” Mast Acoept Proffers. To for the driver who does not accept suggestions of the traffic policemen in good faith, Safety Di rector Tudor says: “By no means do I want traffic men to stand for abuse. If a driver becomes ’hard’ or defiant, argument accomplishes nothing. A citation will end the incident and the ! court will settle the dispute.” Tourists and automobile visitors or auto transients should find the wel come sign hung on every policeman. Safety Director Tudor says. A stranger should be given every con sideration, for “a stranger within our gates always remembers kind treatment and never forgets rough treatment. With a little considera tion on our part the stranger will sing the praises of our city to others in his own community or wherever he may go,” the letter concludes. Chicken-Catching Eel Canght. Near Deposit, N. Y., farmers have been missing their chickens for many weeks and she marauder could not be apprehended regardless of how careful the watch. Recently, S. D. Peters caught a 4-pound eel and when It was dressed it was found to con tain two young chickens which had been gulped down whole. Caterpillar Is Strong. A goat-moth caterpillar, found In the London Zoo, has become the ob ject of study on the part of natural ists because of its great strength. This caterpillar was placed in a glass Jar covered with a heavy leaden lid In which holes had been punched to admit air. Over night the caterpillar had chewed away enough of the lead from around one of the holes to escape. Another caterpillar of the same type was housed In a cigar box, but chewed Its way out, ate a hole in the top of a piano and was later found wandering among the works. THE EVENING STAR, WASHINGTON.

MADRID, August 30. —The serious ness of the situation in Morocco, where Spanish troops are engaged In a struggle against the rebels. Is brought home to the people in an official state ment today. "The Invasion by Riffians and Go mans,” it says, "haa caused a general uprising in the western zone (Tetuan) and creates a situation necessitating intensive protection of the Xauen- Tetuan road by two strong columns, who are engaged in constant fighting in a mountainous region against an almost invisible enemy along the Lau River. “The Spanish forces are compelled to fight for every Inch in their at tempt to bring relief to besieged po sitions, but they do not spar so much the fire of the enemy as the difficult terrain in which these beleaguered positions are situated. To this is added the fact that water must be carried from their base, as the water ing places along the front are too dangerous to be utilized. Casualties Are Reported. “Some of the besieged positions have lost their heliographic com munication, and those who still can use it report casualties from fighting and illness. “Raisull (former bandit chief) is doing everything in ht» power to aid and fight on our side near Xauen. "The Spanish government in this statement has tried to tell the whole truth which the people can and irtust know as regards the actual state of affairs in Morocco without being In discreet and revealing secrets or mili tary plans which the government and the general staff have worked out to bring about a successful ending to the warfare against the rebellious Moors.” Hamon’s Widow Wins Divorce.

RUM PUEET INFESTS SHORES OF CANADA Liquor Smugglers Reported Constantly Flocking to Cape Breton Caves. By ConMOlidated Prr»*. LONDON, August 30. Woman's The whole world knows of the anti-Vol stead squadron that lubricates New York by means of submarines, hydro planes and high-powered motor boats. The whole world does not know that Canada also has an Atlantic rum fleet. Many great waves beat on the rugged coasts of Cape Breton, but no wild nor’easter as wild and law lessness as the waves of rum. The writer has recently stood on the very crest of these rum breakers and watched them foam shoreward into hundreds of smugglers’ coves. A glance at a map will show at once that Cape Breton is ideally adapted to pluck bottles from the sea. It is the hand of which the rest of Nova Scotia is the arm and the Straits of Canso the wrist. It runs out to sea in Innumerable long headlands like eager beckoning fingers. Or perhaps it would be bet ter to say that Cape Breton. Cape Percy, Point Aconie, Cape Smoky and Gape North are tongues—quivering and thirsty tongues. Vessels OIT Every Headland. Off every headland is some vessel of the fleet. It needs little magic to summon spirits from the vast deep. The rustle of bills at the three-mile limit is all that is required to lure kegs and cases from the holds of the rum boats into the holds of the rum •runners. To serve as barriers against this tidal wave, the dominion government has three revenue cutters, the largest of which is the Sagamore, command ed by Capt Peters. These watch dogs of the customs, If they took their eyes or their telescopes from the land, would realize In a moment that they are not dykes but sieves. The customs officials cannot watch so great an expanse of sea on a coast as wrinkled as a human brain. At its full strength the fleet amounts to 40 sails, 15 off Cape Bre ton and the rest off Halifax. Lunen burg, and Yarmouth. And they are really “sails." They ride at anchor with sails up to serve as a sea mark to customers and to steady them, the boats. Into the wind. Only a few are steamers or have auxiliary engines. Some of them are just one masted, almost one cask, fishing sloops. They do not need to be as large as the vessels in the sea caravan that serves the great American Sahara. They supply not half a continent, but only three small provinces. Being able to anchor 3 miles offshore and not 12. they do not need to be so seaworthy. Their source of supply Is St. Pierre Miquelon, only a hundred miles dis tant from the extreme north of Capt Breton, while the “home waters" of the American fleet are In the Bermudas and the Bahamas. It should rejoice the hearts of pro tectionists to learn that this Canadian fleet has no truck nor trade with the Yankee fleet. It occupies the extreme tip of the great marine horn or cornu copia which so copiously bedews the Volstead coast, but it Is not In direct contact with It. Between Maine and New Brunswick, where the 12-mile limit ends and the 3-mlle begins, there Is a gap. One rum fleet Is, as It were, "In the air.” But It prospers as a strictly Canadian enterprise, limited to a Canadian market. It was estimated by a Sydney newspaper man that Capo Breton alone buys in one year J2.000,- 000 worth of liquor from the sea. The ships are mostly owned by Canadians and belong to Canadian ports. They laugh at American com petition and occasionally dump goods on the American market In spite of Republican anti-dumping laws. Many a Nova Scotian liquor carrier makes a dash into American waters as though on a Highland foray into the Lowlands and trades headaches for dollars. Ships of the rum fleet. It seems, are like the whales. In rough weather they keep well out to avoid being blown on shore. When the weather is fine they come in and bask in the sunshine on the 3-mile limit. The rum fleet never does do a brisk busi ness where there is a brisk breese. —By GLUYAS WILLIAM EVANS DENIES KLAN BAN ON JEWS LIFTED Wizard Declares Only Native- Born White Gentile Protestants May Be Members. By the Associated Press. NKW YORK. August 30 —The Jew ish Telegraph Agency in this city to day made public a letter received from H. W. Evans, imperial wizard of the Ku Klux Klan, in which he said the prerequisites for member ship in the Klan had not been changed. The telegraph agency had written Mr. Evans inquiring if current re ports were correct to the effect that the Klan had modified its policy with regard to Jews who had served in the American Army, making it possible for them to join the order. Mr. Evans’ reply said, in part: “Our organisation is founded upon the Christian religion and as a prereq uisite for membership therein we require that applicants be native born. white Gentile Protestant Ameri can citizens of good moral character. “We recognize the right of all men to associate themselves together. The particular group which we are en deavoring to associate, come under the prerequisites heretofore given in this letter.” WOMEN ARE RECRUITED FOR SCOTLAND YARD British Police Hope to Outwit Criminals With Fair Detectives. By the Associated Pres*. SYDNEY. Nova Scotia, August 30. wiles, wit and charms versus criminal craftiness is a possibility of the future, and the outcome is expected by Scot land Yard to rope in more crime per petrators than has been the case recently. Recruiting for the new women’s police force is opening shortly, and, from the many applicants the crim inal investigation department hopes to get some bobbed haired, daintily gowned detectives who will prove more than the equals of the wily jewel thieves • and dope traffickers who have hitherto eluded attempts of mere man detectives to track them down. The authorities are satisfied that many of the present crimes and rob beries are engineered by a new set of smart criminals who can only be countered by detectives of the same outward smartness and equal wit. By dressing up to the part, these future sleuths will be able to move leisurely about the West End without attracting as much suspicion as male plain clothes detectives and they will be able, by their personal charms and manner, to disarm suspicion.
