C. S. Smith Describes For
eign Service to Hazelton,
Pa., Club.
R.r the Antoeialed Prrsr.
HAZLETON. Pa., June s.—Charles
: Stephenson Smith, chief of the for
j eign service of the Associated Press,
| addressed the newspaper day luncheon
j of the Khvanis Club today on foreign
j news. He laid special emphasis upon
i the value to the American public, and
people all over the world, of news which
merely tells facts and is not colored
I with the opinions of reporters or ed
| itors who may be under the influence
j of political pr financial groups or other
i interests.
Mr. Smith said simple facts, simply
! told, are a much better diet for a
j searcher after truth than thunderous
i opinions, laboriously delivered. “Opin
j ions," he said, "are not necessarily an
’ achievement. And. after all, we like
! our own opinions better than the other
: fellow s."
Paying marked respect to Melville E.
i Stone and his associates in the creation
i of the Associated Press 35 years ago,
i Mr. Smith said these builders acted on
the belief that readers are capable of
i doing their own thinking and drawing
their own conclusions from facts pre
sented without bias or prejudice. They
also believed that news should not be
a commodity sold tor profit in the open
market, but should be gathered co
operatively by newspapers of all polit
ical and religious beliefs, and protected
against the manipulations of any indi
udual or group of individuals.
Mr. Stone's pioneer work in creating
a sustained foreign service, the first
real foreign service the United States
ever had. was reviewed by the speaker.
Through agreements with the leading
news agencies of the world the Asso
ciated Press has access to their reports.
Trained American correspondents in all
important foreign countries prepare
news reports for the United States, and
the foreign agencies in turn have cor
respondents in the Associated. Press
headquarters in New York who prepare
American news for their various coun- I
tries, thus facilitating a regular and
systematic international exchange of
news, which has done much to better
the understanding between nations and
to clarify international relations.

Bridge probably will be awarded the

hurst. assistant Engineer Commissioner, j
Sealed proposals for the work were
opened yesterday afternoon in the

Co. of Pittsburgh, which offered to do
the work for $141,500. The highest bid
was *237.500.
The Pittsburgh contractor offered to i
do the work in 100 8-hour days. He

F. D. Owen Named Curator of
Material on History
of City.
Maps and Models, Including
Original L’Enfant Plan, to
Be Displayed.
Establishment of a museum wherein
; may be permanently exhibited models,
drawings and other materials having
; to do with the growth of the National
; Capital from the date of its establish
j ment is being planned under the dl
j rection of Lieut. Coi. U. S. Grant, 3d,
! director of public buildings and public
parks. -
It is to be located in the temporary
| building at the northwest corner oi
i Eighteenth and B streets, and in prep
aration tor it thousands of canceled
! Government checks belonging to the
General Accounting Office tiles have
been moved to the Emory Building, at
First and B streets.
Frederick D. Owen, who retired sev
eral months ago from the office, but
\ who insists on putting in a few hours
j a day working among the material
i with which lie had much to do during
! the years spent in this branch of the
! Government, is the first curator, and is
! planning the exhibits to be placed in
I the museum. They consist of scores of
maps and charts, including the original
i L'Enfant plant of Washington and
many models of various projects in the
i citv, some of which have been cat lied
I out, and many of which still await
! congressional authorization.
Much of this material now is stored
;in rooms in the Navy Building where
it is inaccessible, and some of it, is in
the dun corridors ofthe Navy Building
on display under conditions which make
it unsatisfactory for any one desiring to
make a study of them.
, Not a small amount of the material
! is very valuable, and cannot, be re
j placed, so that it will have to be
! guarded and given adequate protection
against destruction by fire,
j Much of the exhibit material to be
; placed in the museum was especially
j prepared for use at various expositions,
including the Pan-American at San
Alla.tic City, N. J.

| Dutch to Accord Justices Same Of
ficial Rank as Accredited
j By ilk- Associated Press.
GENEVA June s.—The judges of the
International Court of Justice hence
: forth will be accorded the same rank
! as ministers accredited to the court of
j Queen Wilheimina of Holland by an
agreement confirmed by the Council of
! the League of Nations today. Thus a
dispute which at one time threatened
to drive the World Court out of The
Hague was adjusted.
The wives and unmarried children of
the judges will possess diplomatic privi
leges and immunities, which will be the
same as those granted to the diplomatic
corps. At receptions given by the Queen
the judge will rank after the diplomatic
corps, but will be given precedence as
though accredited as Ministers by for
eign governments.
