NEEDED ON BORDER Mrs. Wiilebrandt Blames Jealousies for Permitting Smuggling From Canada. (Continued From First Page.) The press reports tell of the mobili eation by the prohibition unit at or near Detroit of hundreds of additional agents, investigaors and super-investi gators to investigate the agents and investigators. The published reports say: "It was decided there should be an immediate increase in the dry army's three units. More automobiles as well as speed boats and cutters will be sup plied, according to the Treasury pro hibition chief.” Then there are dispatches telling of the assignment of 27 more patrol boats to the west' end of Lake Erie and the Detroit River, including 10 75-foot fast boats, carrying 8 men each and rapid fire guns. But 100 or even 1.000 additional boats could never stop the leak at De troit, or any other border point, if they were not used more efficiently and more ’ honestly than prohibition forces have been used in the past where liquor flows across the border. Certainly the* beating of drums and the issuance of mimeographed threats of a great prohibition offensive will not aid the Government forces in gathering evidence of the kind necessary to con vict the leaders of the big liquor rings. The time to talk about a "dry drive” is after the evidence is gathered and the defendants are in court, facing sworn testimony of the kind necessary to in sure prison sentences. Rum runners, even though some Government men have not yet learned it, are not scared w’hen Uncle Sam hollers “Boo!” But they do begin to get nervous when even a few of their number and especially the men at the top of the liquor ring start on a long and extended trop to one of Uncle Sam’s boarding houses! History Repeats Itself. The present situation at Detroit is by no means new to me. The basis of that self-congratulatory pat on the back is a letter which I wrote to the Attorney General more than four years ago. on July 13. 1925. to be exact. The letter *was written after I had spent several days in Detroit conferring with the United States attorney (at that time Delos Smith, a young man of aggressive policies), Federal judges, special agents of the Customs Service, the United States consul in nearby Canada, State police, and special agents of the Bureau of Investigation. Here is part of what I reported to the Attorney General —and please re. member that the report was made four years before the Treasury Department became aware, publicly at least, of what was happening at Detroit: "I cannot overemphasise the neces sity of using every means at our com mand to bring home to the Treasury Department the need of strengthening the customs protection against smug gling in the vicinity of Detroit. At present there are tremendous quantities of liquor, narcotics, other contraband and a great many aliens, all coming across the border at Detroit. It is a port of entry for illicit smuggled goods distributed in St. Louis, Chicago and other points west. Smuggling is carried on by railroad and by boat. This means ‘paying off’ several men in the railroad employ and one or two cus toms inspectors. It will not be difficult to get this evidence. It is essential that an investigation be pushed for ward without delay to uncover the de faulting railway and customs men. 1 “A number of customs men are under auspicion. An able special customs agent has no power to control them. He should be placed in charge and made to feel his responsibility for re sults. He should be given at least a dozen fast boats to patrol the river. He should be given authority to in vestigate and remove customs men who are unfaithful to duty. “The prohibition director’s office is in a thoroughly bad state. The office of the Bureau of Investigation is well managed by Tom Wilcox, an energetic, ambitious, thoroughly honest and hard working official. He has'gone beyond his assignment to co-operate with the United States attorney and has done it under heavy odds because the police conditions in Detroit are so demoralized and because the prohibition office is so puerile. If we are to enable the United States attorney to get results, we must take the lead in urging the Treasury Department to reorganize an inefficient prohibition office and co ordinate and put morale in their allied investigation services like customs.” Did this report and these recommen dations bring results? They did not. Here are the conditions that prevail at SPECIAL NOTICES.

William G. Euler, to the Canadian House of Com , mons on May 21, 1929: I “I have said something which may appear a criticism of the United States. I I have no desire to be offensive, but I think there are some facts I should place before the House, in view of the statements made that we are not deal ing In a friendly way with our neighbor on the South. It has been stated that these boats go across at night. That is not entirely true. I took the trouble last Fall to go down to Windsor. I was offered safe conduct by a liquor ex porter and went out on a launch on the Detroit River. I could see the United States customs office on the other shore, and I could also see that it was not difficult to detect any boats that left the Canadian shore to go to the Ameri can side. While in Windsor I got into conversation with a man engaged in the business of exporting liquor. I asked him: ‘Do you cross in the day time?’ He answered. ‘Yes, quite often.’ I said. ‘How is it they do not get you?’ He replied with a smile, ‘lt Just happens that they are not there when we go across.’ “Our inspector went to Windsor not so very long ago. He did not select any special day. While there on January 14 he observed the following vessels cross the river at Detroit in daylight with cargoes of liquor: “Ben, J. King master—Ten quarter barrels beer, 11 cases whisky. “Rat, J. Sales master—Twenty-four cases whisky, 5 cases wine, 1 case brandy. “Bat, A. Jacks master —Nineteen cases whisky, 1 case wine. “Rabbi, I. Straight master —Five half barrels beer, 8 cases whisky. “Bird, J. Bloom, master—Eighteen cases whisky, 8 cases Bourbon, 3 cases Scotch whisky. “Bar, J. Peters master—Thirteen cases whisky, 4 cases Bourbon. 3 cases brandy. “That was in one day.” Customs Officers Look Away. But that was not all that the Canadian Parliament was told by its minister of national revenue. He sub mitted a report from the Canadian revenue collector at Bridgeburg, On tario, written in April of this year, which told of conditions in that vicin ity. The collector’s report was that there were 12 boats plying between Canada and the United States at a point where the river is about half a mile wide. Some of the boats carried from 800 to 1.000 cases of liquor and they were required to leave the Cana dian Socks not later than 6 p.m. The Canadian officer said. “No effort as far as we can see is made by the United States authorities to seize any of these boats, as the United States customs are always notified by us an hour or two before the boats leave* It is a well known fact that some of these boats land within a few hundred yards of the United States customs office and unload without being disturbed. I know that if conditions t were reversed we would have all these boats tied up in less than a week.” Can any one doubt, after reading such statements, that there is not only something radically wrong in Danmark, but in the United States of America, particularly in the vicinity of Detroit and Buffalo? Os course I am not exculpating Can ada from all blame for the situation. In many instances, the Canadian of ficials have not rendered all the help they might. But where our own serv ice has been organized up to the point of commanding respect and a real ap peal has been made to Canada, we have respectable results —in many In stances very satisfactory ones—from Canadian officials. There is no Cana dian law which prohibits the exportation of liquor to the United States, but in fact, Canada derives a revenue of sev eral million dollars from its tax on ex ported liquor. But whether Canada later agrees to revise its treaty with the United States to prohibit exports of liquor to our country, or whether it maintains its present refusal, our own officials cannot avoid their responsibil ity for the leak across the border. Vacillating Policy at Washington. The leak will continue, drlf€ or no drive, dry mobilization or nv dry mobilization, until there is real co ordination and co-operation among our own forces at Detroit and elsewhere along their borders. Detroit is an example of depart mental jealousy triumphant! The re sponsibilities of the customs service and prohibition service and the State and city police overlap in law and in its practical operation. This condition has become worse in recent years. The situation is wholly inexcusable, because both the customs and the prohibition service are under the Secretary of the Treasury. He could crack their heads together and make them “play ball.” Instead of that there has been a policy of vacillation and a catering first to the recommendation of one service and then the other. A better focusing of responsibility will have to come before there is any suc cess on the side of the Federal Govern ment in what headliners term “the gigantic battle of Detroit.” What really is wrong at Detroit, besides the service of some dishonest men, is that most deadly of maladies of the Federal Gov ernment: Small departmental jeal ousies which result in an utter lack of co-ordinated effort. Evidence Is secured and hoarded In one service. An observation of a sus picious circumstance by one officer of the Government results In just a shrug or a comment “That’s none of my busi ness. The prohibition agents or .nonae other service ought to tend to that.” Team Work Needed. When the press, civic bodies and citizens complain of smuggling the customs service blames the State and city police; the prohibition agents blame the customs; the United States attorney sits in grand legal isolation, saying, “What can I do but lose cases when they don’t bring me good evi dence?” And the local police say, ‘‘lt’s the fault of the Canadian officials, they help the smugglers across.” But let a big violator be caught by accident, or otherwise, and conviction secured and all these services bump their heads together 1n rushing head long to claim credit and to spread In their respective offices at Washington reports that it was their act and zeal, but the other services “grabbed the credit.” This creates an utterly demoralized condition of which smugglers and other law violators are not slow to take ad vantage. In effect, the different serv ices are planning against the fighting each other, instead of unitedly com bating the bootleg fraternity. What Is needed at Detroit and else where is development of team play be tween the several forces available, the Beautiful Cjarden under the Star# trace (?ARKTOKT 2iOT£t» l©Ttt at K» STREETS NOW OPEN Dancing Each Evening Seven to ten o’clock %_> Music bu tie SimtSouci Orchestra (MEVKB DAVIS) SmiceafaeaA* «..

By the Associated Press. ATLANTIC CITY, N. J.. August 13. The executive council of the American Federation of Labor meeting here yes terday Indorsed the action of the gen eral executive board of the Interna tional Ladles’ Garment Workers’ Union in authorizing a strike of 45,000 workers in the dress and waist industry through out New York City. According to Wil liam Green, president, the strike has been ordered for December 1, with the national organization rendering full support to the garment workers. The executive council approved the strike after listening in executive ses sion to Benjamin Schlessinger, presi dent of the International Ladies’ Gar ment Workers’ Union, who reported on the economic situation within his or ganization and stressed especially on the situation In the Industry during the past four months. President Green, following the ses sion, stated that the council was pleased with the efforts made by the officials and will lend Its whole-hearted sup port to the strikers In the Industry. No mention was made by President Green, who spoke for the council, as to whether or not the executive board also approved the garment Workers’ strike threatened In many other cities through out the country. Thursday the gen eral executive board of the Interna tional Ladles’ Garment Workers’ Union authorized a strike of 80,000 workers in the women’s dress industry in the United States and Canada. Nine cities are affected—New York, Philadelphia, Boston, Chicago, Cleveland, Baltimore, Kansas City. Toledo and Toronto—the strike in each case to go into effect at the discretion of the local union. The labor council at their session yes terday voted to invite Ramsay Mac- Donald, prime minister of Great Britaim to be their guest at the national con* vention of the American Federation of Labor at Toronto, Canada, In October. At today's session, according to an nouncement of President Green, the council will take up various injunction matters and no doubt prepare a Senate substitute for the Shipstead anti-injunc tion bill now before Congress. Bottle in Long Voyage. Thrown overboard from a liner In July, 1927, at a point between New York and the Azores, a sealed bottle was re cently picked up off Rockfort, France. It had been carried across the Atlantic by the Gulf Stream. The object of the experiment was to test the strength of the contents. co-ordination of their activities, and the development of a real will to win. Perhaps all that sounds like theory. I can imagine many a reader saying to himself. ‘*Oh, It’s well enough for a woman to sit down at a desk in Wash ington and outline a beautiful plan for catching bootleggers, but she really hasn’t a practical Idea In her head that would amount to a row of pins in practice.” State Department Helped. Let me call attention, therefore, to < the fact that a situation similar to that which now exists at Detroit, existed several years ago near Seattle, Wash. I : secured the detail by the State Depart- i ment of Mr. Ernest L. Harris, consul general at Vancouver, and through his efforts and the leadership, good Judg ment and labors of Mr. Alf Oftedal, as- i sistant prohibition commissioner, the work of the various services was co ordinated. More than that, a plan of co-operation with the Canadian forces was put into effect that worked out satisfactorily for both governments. Smuggling both into Canada and into the United States in that region was radically reduced. In March of the present year«l earnestly urged the State Department™ detail Mr. Harris to the Detroit area to make a survey and recommendations as to what would improve conditions, and the request was granted. He spent con siderable time studying the situation on both sides of the line. He did it with out blare of trumpets or headlines. He came to Washington and laid his report —a very frank and serious document — before the Attorney General’s office, recommending the removal from that district of some officials and other changes In personnel. As a result the Treasury Department has reorganized its customs service, and other strength ening of organization is on the way. Intermittent drives and “wars” against liquor smugglers accomplish little, espe cially when given advance advertising. The only way to enforce the law is to enforce it all the time, not ‘only Just some of the time. Wanted: A Canadian Mounted. Undoubtedly the Ideal method to get results along our borders will be to organize a unified border patrol, made up of the best trained men from all the various services, and amalgamate them into one splendid border police with an esprit de corps, equal to that of the famous mounted police bf Canada. There has been a bill before the judiciary committee of Congress for more than four years to do this very thing. The plan' ought to be given a big push. To accomplish a unified border patrol, however, requires passage of such legis lation, which in turn involves politics, and all that means long delay, as well as the meeting and overcoming of the tenacious traditions and jealousies of the various services which would have to be reformed. But even without a new organization for border patrol purposes the big leak can be plugged if there is the right kind of planning at Washington by men who are really anxious to have their forces work together with the common object of stopping the flow of rum across the border. When there Is more brain work and team play In Washington, there will be less booze in Detroit—and more boot leggers in Atlanta Penitentiary! (Copyrlaht. 1929, by Current News Features, Inc.)

The United States Engineer Office is now busy making dyke repairs at Fred ericksburg, Va„ on the Rappahannock River, under the direction of Maj. Bre hon B. Somervell, district engineer for the War Department for the Washing ton area. E. A. Schmitt, engineer, ex plained today that the dykes are used to rectify the channel alignment and hold the dredging deposits removed from deepening the channel. The work is being carried forward with the as sistance of the United States derrick boat Atlas and attendant- equipment, in charge of Master Tilden Felton, under the supervision of A. E, Allen, con struction supervisor. The work consists in repairing the weak and decayed portion of the timber dykes lining the channel and will in volve dredging, pile driving and heavy carpenter work. This will entail one month's work in the Fredericksburg sector and one week's work in the six mile stretch below Fredericksburg. Upon the completion of this work the Atlas will engage in dredging the chan nel on the Fredricksburg bar. Due to the filled condition of the dykes, Mr. Schmitt explained, the dredged mate rial will be deposited on dump scows and hauled downstream three miles and deposited in a spoil basin prepared last year. It is expected that during November and December the United States hy draulic pipe line dredge Talcott, now under construction at the Southern Shipyards Co., at Newport News, Va., will be engaged in dredging a number of the bars in the 20-mlle section below Fredericksburg. APOLOGIZES FOR SLURS ON BRITISH EMIGRANTS Collingwood Hughes, Former M. P., Center of Violent Scenes Aboard Vessel on Way to Australia. By the Associated Press. ADELAIDE. Australia, August 13. — Collingwood Hughes, former member of the British House of Commons, arrived here Sunday on the liner Bendigo after his alleged statements about the type of British emigrants on board had made him the center of violent scenes on board the vessel. He said he had apologized to the pas sengers and complained the affair had been exaggerated and that, while he had said much in favor of the emi grants, only his adverse remarks had been reported. Mr. Hughes is reported to have said the emigrants included “degenerates, criminals, loafers and weak-minded children.” A number of angrv passen gers attacked him after a meeting called to discuss his charges when the ship called at Perth. Some insisted on his | leaving the ship then, but Mr. Hughes i decided to complete his journey. The Australian government is Investigating the charges. MURDER CHARGE FILED.

LOS ANGELES, August 13.—Internal troubles of the Actors’ Equity Associa- | tion apparently quieted down today, after a flare-up which involved its president, Frank Glllmore, and vice president, Ethel Barrymore, over the organization’s fight with Hollywood motion picture producers for closed shop in the Industry. Miss Barrymore, in a statement in San Francisco late last night, declared she wished no controversy and “would not say another word.” This came after Glllmore had answered her charges of the night be fore that he sponsored a “solution which was no solution” to the situation with the producers. Glllmore earlier in the evening said that Miss Barrymore in criticizing him had left a "regret table and definitely erroneous impres sion.” Miss Barrymore Sunday night criti cized Glllmore for his action at a closed meeting of Equity, at which he asked and received the support of the organi zation to a program calling for the employment of Equity actors for 80 per cent of each cast.- Miss Barrymore declared that this plan had been submitted to the pro ducers at a series of secret sessions by the Equity committee on which she and Glllmore were members, and that the producers had refused to consider it. GROUSE SEASON OPENS. Many Americans Among Sportsmen Flocking to English Moors. LONDON. August 13 </P). —'The an nual grouse-shooting season, one of the major festivals in the sportsman's calen dar in England, opened yesterday, at tracting sportsmen from many other countries. Many Americans, such as J. P. Morgan, come to England regular ly for the grouse shooting. For days past expresses traveling from London to the north have been run in triplicate for the benefit of the sports men bound for the moors. But for his illness. King George would have been shooting as usual with the Duke of Devonshire on the latter’s Boulton Abbey estate, in Yorkshire. Later this month the Duchess of York will be hostess to a party on the King’s own moors, near Balmoral, in Scotland.

Insist on the Genuine MADISON PREPARES FOR HOOVER VISIT Virginia Village Has Clean-up Day in Anticipation of * Saturday Call. By the Associated Press. MADISON, Va., August 13.—Madison is finding the prospect of entertaining so distinguished a guest as the Presi dent of the United States altogether thrilling and just a bit disturbing. Proud and grateful that he chose a spot within its confines for his fishing preserve and desiring to tell him so, the citizens of the county invited Mr. Hoover to pay them a visit next Satur day. He accepted and has promised a short Informal .address in response to the expressions of thanks. So Satur day was designated “Madison County day," and mighty preparations were begun. Not often is it the good fortune of a small Virginia village to play host to such an important personage. There has been much frantic searching of precedents and seeking of advice. The members of the community are unani mous in their anxiety and determina tion that the Chief Executive be re ceived in true presidential fashion, with all the customs and traditions associ ated with a presidential visit fully ob served. Village Stirred. Today an unusual stir of activity re placed the accustomed quiet and sereni ty of the village. From the number of farm people driving into town it might have been “court day" but for the fact that they were attired in work-a-day overalls instead of Sunday bests and were directed toward the county fair grounds on the edge of town. Rakes and shovels, hammers and saws were ready there for willing hands. The debris from the last county fair and numerous picnic parties had to be cleaned up, a speakers’ stand built and an ornate gateway constructed at the entrance. In addition, the roadway over which the presidential party will pass after entering the grounds had to be graveled and smoothed over gen erally. The day was designated “Clean up day.” | The workers had been recruited by members of the Madison County Cham ber of Commerce, who have been tour ing the county for days, not only for this particular purpose, but as well to solicit money for necessary expenses and to gather calves and pigs for the big barbecue that is to follow the cere monies. More than 5,000 people are expected, and the traditions of South ern hospitality would not be fulfilled unless there was food enough for all. Plans Complete. Plans for the President’s reception have been worked over and over and are now complete. A detail of State motor-cycle police will meet him at the town limits and escort him to the fair grounds. A field artillery piece has been obtained with which to fire the presidential salute of 21 guns, and a band will be on hand to strike up at the appropriate moment the tune that tells of a President's coming, “Hail to the Chief.” In addition, the famous Richmond Blues will be there to act as a guard of honor. Mr. Hoover plans to go to his fishing preserve in the nearby Blue Ridge Mountains on Friday and motor to Madison for the ceremonies ors Satur day morning. Representative Garber of the congressional district which em braces Madison will introduce Gov. Harry F. Byrd, who will tell the Presi dent of the county’s gratitude. Mr. Hoover’s address will follow. The ceremonies over, the Chief Execu tive will return to his fishing lodge. The people of the county, however, will make a day of it. There will be the barbecue and then the afternoon will be filled with sports, fly casting contests and a horseshoe-pitching tournament. Plans for another “clean-up day" have been left for the future.

Goetz, student pilot at Kelly Field, was hurled more than 1,000 feet above the ground while traveling at more than 100 miles an hour yesterday afternoon, but saved his life by opening his parachute. He was performing a barrel roll In a fast pursuit plane when his safety belt either became unfastened or broke, hurling him from the ship. He pulled his parachute and landed 3 miles west of Kelly Field. His plane crashed 2 miles farther west and was wrecked. Cadet Goetz, who Is 21 years old, lives at St. Paul, Minn.

Officials of the National Broadcasting Co. said It was the first successful broadcast of its kind. The feat was performed by H. G. “Buddy” Bushmeyer, parachute expert here. He left his plane at 6:30 p.m. (E. D. T.) and remained In communica tion with a radio audience until he was 3,000 feet above the ground. His monologue ran somewhat as fol lows: “Everything O. K.

I got out at 10,000 feet and as I float down it looks won derful.” He landed on Mltchel Field, one mile south of Roosevelt Field. The plane from which he jumped was piloted by Capt. J. Nelson Kelly. Bushmeyer wore a 24-pound trans mitter strapped to hls chest and a mi crophone attached to a band around his head. His broadcast was picked up by a short wave receiver and sent out on a Nation-wide network of the National Broadcasting Co.
