The tomb of William Howard Taft will be marked for posterity with a memorial shaft befitting the high place he held in the heart of the American people. The monument is to be selected by Mrs. Taft and their three children, who chose the sylvan nook in Arlington Na tional Cemetery in which the man who was President and Chief Justice is now at rest. Simplicity is to be the dominant characteristic of the marker, a simplic ity that will be imposing but far re moved from the severe, with an inscrip tion telling in unaffected language of the greatness of the one who lies be neath. With guns booming a requiem, with President Hoover and the mighty of the Government standing reverently by. and with platoons from the Army, the Navy and the Marine Corps drawn up in last salute for one who had been their com mander-in-chief, the body of the dead President was lowered slowly to its last home yesterday as the day was drawing to a close. Then, as the volleys echoed and died across the broad fields of Arlington, came the soft, clear notes of the bugle, sounding "Taps,” and the sky, thick with clouds and falling rain throughout the day. brightened, a bit of blue ap peared. and a soft ray of light played about the top of the Washington Monu ment and the spires of the city, hazily visible across the broad Potomac. Great and Lowly Pay Tribute. It had been a day in which both great and lowly had paid their tribute to a Seat American. For an hour and a tlf the body had lain in state in the rotunda of the Capitol, while long lines of plain citizens, who had stood in the falling rain for this opportunity, filed slowly past. Then had come the services at All Souls’ Unitarian Church, simple cere monies conducted by the Taft family pastor. Rev. Ulysses G. B. Pierce. There were hymns played upon the organ and chimes, prayers. Scripture reading, the recitation of a few poems that Mr. Taft had loved in life. That was all. Then the final scene. Outside tha troops had waited again te salute as the casket was carried to a motor hearse for the long trip to Arlington. Only the cars carrying Mrs. Taft and the family members, President and Mrs. Hoover, and others of the distinguished group that gathered in the church fol lowed It. For the moment. Army and Navy had paid their respects and the battalions could turn to barracks to change from wet uniforms. First Salute Fired. Then the march to Arlington followed. As the hearse crossed the reservation line, the first brazen clamor of a 31- gun salute, the salute to the President of the colors, belched forth to send Its echoes reeling down the hillsides to the company waiting at the grave far below. Minute by minute the guns drummed out their tale of soldierly sorrow as the slow procession wound its way down among the trees and the many, many graves of the valorous. Again the cas ket was placed in its caisson. It Is a wonderful glade, where this first President to sleep in a National Cemetery takes his rest. Perhaps an acre of woodland sward Is set close about by the red and white oaks, young and old. A fine old tree that was there when George Washington came a-court ing to the Arlington house on the heights about stands alone in the cen ter. Westward, up the gentle hillside, is a group of half a dosen younger oaks And it Is beneath their spread boughs that a place waa made for the aewoomer to that last sanctuary of valor and fame. About the squared sides of the glade to»p» were ranked. Soldiers held two sides, Marines and blue jacket* the others, and Just back of the flies spread from their poles to sever the grave and the few dear set end n «* r< *fi Wh P ojwld crowd about, too fun strength of the Navy Band was mus tered. Within the square stood a single rank of riflemen, waiting to fire the last vollies, and the aame serasant bugler.

Close behind the soldier lines were the few hundreds who had dared even this Journey In rain and wind to aay a last good-by to an old friend. Band Heard Afar Off. _ *ar away came the tones of the Cavalry Band, broken by the ct—w»r of the guns booming their minute signals above. As they drew closer the guns ceased, their tale told, and the music rang through the wooded hollows. It was a dirge old to the Army that the hand (Rayed and ae they came nearer and nearer to the open space at the foot of the rifle-ringed square the men below snapped to stiff attention. Down wound toe troopers, glimpsed first vaguely through the trees, the band instruments gleaming even in Out dull light. Then they broke out into the open with the muffled mutter of the drums last in the elatter of their chargers’ hoofs. On and on the oohram moved, turning at last to form in a solid, living mass of men and mounts behind the foot troops on the north side at the square. The dignitaries, from President down, alighted from their care, awaiting Mrs. Taft and the near relatives. The body bearers again took up their burden and finally, led by Dr. pierce, the little column moved slowly up and the flag draped casket vanished into the shelter of the khakl-hued, tented inekwure. Mrs. Taft with members of the family passed within, then President and Mrs. Hoover and a few nearer, dearer friends of the dead. For the others of the mourning party, for admirals and gen erals, for Senators and Representatives, it remained to stand clustered outside, bare-headed, as the simple burial serv ice was completed within. No- word of what was said inside reached the ears of those about the outer ring of troops. Rifles of the men in lines about the great square were at parade rest now, the present saluate hav ing been rendered as the easket was carried up the hill, in that Interval, too, the band played softly amid the trees the final hymn of the funeral service of William Howard Taft, “Abide With Me.’’ Then came a signal of hand. The troops snapped to attention. "Ready! Aim! Fire!” called a crisp military voice, and the 16 rifles spoke one one in cracking volley amid the trees. “Fire!’’ came the order again, and a rifle blast—again "Fire!” and the third and last crashing note of the soldiers’ last salute was given.

GROUP' “No Entangling Alliances”; Policy Followed as France * Is Refused Pact. BY FREDERIC WILLIAM WILE, Staff Correspondent of The Star. •y Radio to The Star. LONDON. England, March 13. George Washington's Immortal doctrine of no entangling alliances became the keynote at the Naval Conference today. It Is resounding throughout London as a mult of the American delegation's unequivocal statement that the United States will under no circumstances be come a party to any kind of security pact in nance's favor, consultative or otherwise. Announcement to that effect on Stim son's authority formally supplements the declaration of Great Britain’s pur pose by Mr. Macdonald in his broad cast to America March 9. nance is now fully and Anally aware that there can be no Ave-power pact Including security guarantee provisions. Speculation Is Keen. Speculation is as keen over the real mo tive behind the affirmation of America's attitude as it is regarding the effect on the French. The Hoover administra tion’s wholesome respect for the Senate is the most popular explanation. As recently as a fortnight ago In dications were forthcoming from a responsible delegation quarters that Stlmson, in accord with Hoover, was more than open-minded on the subject of at least a consultative pact. The United States, it is now ex plained, is not opposed to consultation in an international crisis as long as it is deAnltely understood that it shall be consultation and nothing else. But when the consultative pact is sought as France Is now seeking It the matter assumes. In American eyes, an entirely different aspect. 1914 Pesßten Is Recalled. An almost identical position aroee In 1914, when on the eve of the World War, France clamored for aid from the British navy to protect her channel coast because a couple of years before the French Aeet was removed from the Atlantic in return for the British Aeet's withdrawal from the Mediterranean. Secretary Stlmson and his colleagues are bombarded with cablegrams and letters from home urging them not to leave London without a satisfactory treaty. Much of this pressure reflects a belief that the United States ean and should afford to risk a consulta tive pact If it Is the price which must ha paid for a successful conference. waning sunshine as must have softened that moment of parting. And behind them, eternally at net from hts labors, William Howard Taft ; of Ohio remained, alone,,, save for a soldier guard for a little tube, but un i forgotten by countrymen he had served I long and wen.

(Continued From First Face.) figwrea by mtuu of a pact having leem* lnglS' I vanished, Great Britain and the United Statea are resorting to a direct attack on these figures, i Special ships like launches, mine layetts and aircraft tenders, which France counts in the total tonnage, but whldh the United States and Great Britain do not count, have been reduced, | in cconference, decreasing the total 36,- I 000 tons. The French were reluctant to make this concession for two reasons. Italy’s Uae la Cited. A good many small naval powers, who will be represented eventually at the Geneva Disarmament Conference, entrust their defense to such vessels In no small degree. Also, Italy used in the World War and plans to use If necessary in future, fast motor boats armed with torpedoes against battle ships and cruisers. However, the French made the con cession all the same. They did so, however, with the understanding that when the French figures are thorough ly elucidated, Great Britain and the United States similarly will taka up the Italian figures. Thus far Italy has flat ly refused to bring forward any figures at all, saying that whatever happens to be Italy’s total will be exactly that of France. But France wants Great Britain and the United States to oblige Italy to say exactly what the present strength of the Italian navy is in all classes and ex actly how much Italy really thinks it can build in the next five years. Great Britain's idea of what Franea might have without an lncreaae of British figures above what la acceptable to the United States roughly is as fol lows: A total of 600,000 tons to 1,300,000 tons for Great Britain, Instead of the 734,000 tons France claims. Seven i-ineh-gun cruisers to 15 Brit ish, instead of the 10 the French claim. Sixty-five thousand tons of subma rines to 60,000 British, Instead of the 100,000 tons the French claim. Britain Weald Demand Mora. At the stole time an effort would be made to limit Italy, It is said, to a total ; of 400,000 tons. If the French maintain their figures, particularly In 6-inch-gun cruisers and submarines, the British admiralty In tends to insist on an increase of Brit ish cruiser and destroyer tonnage above the Ranidan ficures. Great Britain would demand 374,000 tons of cruisers instead of 339,006, or 56 instead of 50. In destroyers, Great Britain would demand 360,000 tons In stead of 150,600 tons. This would oblige the United States under the theory of parity to make similar in creases, and the east of parity, which already is so high that our Congress looks askance at the figures, would be so increased that parity with Great Britain by 1936 would be virtually out >of the question. EXFEKTB TACKLE IMPASSB. Fiwneh Claims Are Split to Weigh Each te Determine Need. LONDON) March 13 (/P).—The naval experts of the United States, Great Britain sad France met at St. James’ Palace today and tackled the task of trying to find some solution of the grave crisis which exists In the disarm ament conference growing out of the French tonnage demands. The delegates today were facing what was described In well informed quarters as close to an impasse, because both the United State* and Great Britain have Indicated they cannot concede Trance’s demand that she be given a security pact In exchange for reduction In her navy program. This, however, did not deter the experts from trying ta ltad some way out of the dilemma. It waa expected that the entire day would be devoted to an analysis of the French figures involved in her claim for a 734.000-ton navy. Among those engaged in this work were: A. V. Alex ander. first lord of the admiralty . Rene Messigli and Jacques Louis Dumeenll. French minister of marine; Dwight W. Morrow, American delegate; J. Theodore Marriner, diplomatic adviser to the American delegation, and Commodore Harold C. Train were present as ob servers. There was hope—though some ob servers regarded it as not too high. The experts were splitting the French naval claims up Into their constituent pans and studying each one separately to see Just how essential it was. The American spokesman scoffed at reports coming from the United States, that the United States and Great Bri tain would be willing to reduce battle ships bv three more down to 13. It was said emphatically that reduction would be only to 15 and then only after settlement of the question of auxiliaries.

PARIS, March 13 G4 s ).—Keen disap pointment was manifest in responsible quarters in Parte over refusal of the United States to eater some sort of consultative pact and the feeling was ap parent today that the London Confer ence as a consequence may achieve only partial results.
