A self-confessed “master bootlegger” whose ideas on diplomacy obviously lacked stability under weight of test, nabbed the spotlight of notoriety for the raiding activity of police vice squads yesterday, which culminated lfi the seizure of nearly 600 quarts of al leged liquor and the arrest of six per sons. Police failed to “nab” the “liquor king,” however, when he made a sensational fence-scaling feat to fore sake the spotlight of their surveillance. The "big shot” of the bootleg racket interrupted a raid on a premises In the 1100 block of Third street north east, with the query, “Where’s the pro prietor?” “Oh, he’s around somewhere,” was the* officer's reply. “Who are you?” An air of hauteur bettet the man. “Oh, me,” quoth he. “Why I’m one of • the biggest bootleggers in this little old town of yours. The proprietor here works for me!” At this unconventional moment, when the arm of the law was tighten ing its tendons to pluck from the held of this illegal racket one whose self confession and utter lack of diplomacy had been warrant enough for police action, the official conveyance of the Metropolitan Police Department was shunting backwards toward the froflt of the house. The “master liquor baron” lost his dignity and the police thereat also lost the “baron.” His coat tails were last seen as he scrambled over a rear fence. Police succeeded in arresting Sally Jones, colored, 24 years old, and Edward Pongee, colored, 26 years old, at the Third street address and charged them with possession and maintaining a nui sance.

Mllstead of the eleventh precinct out of a chase on Benning road. Mllstead gave chase to a suspected rum car early last night on Benning road and trailed the machine for about a mile. At Benning Bridge the pursued car let out a cloud of smoke that forced the officer to stop.

BY LEILA MECHLIN. An exhibition of Paintings by Ameri can colored artists is now on view in the United States National Museum, Tenth and B streets. This exhibition was arranged In connection with the William E. Harmon awards. As an out growth of the award in fine arts, and is the third of the sort which has been sent out. It Is shown here under the auspices of the committee on race rela tions of the Washington Federation of Churches, and is eminently worthy of attention. Its purpose is to acquaint and Interest the public more generally in the creative accomplishments of the Negro race In the fine arts, and it is hoped by those who are responsible for it that it will not only achieve this end but also encourage creative expres sion of a high order. The exhibition was first shown in International House, New York, In January and has since been exhibited in other leading cities. It consists of paintings In oil, draw ings, prints, water colors, and two or more works in sculpture, and Includes the works to which awards were made at the opening showing. An exhibition of a similar sort, under the same aus pices, was shown In the National Gal lery of Art last year at about this same time. That exhibition contained more works In black and white and sculpture and fewer paintings in oil. On the one hand, the present exhibition Is more Im pressive for this fact, but on the other hand there were Included In the previous showing certain Illustrative drawings absent this time, which attained to a very high standard. The award of gold medal this year was made to William H. Johnson of New York City, who shows two land scapes and two portraits In oils, painted In modernistic manner, strong and ex tremely ugly. Bronze medals were awarded to Albert Alexander Smith of New York City, who exhibits figure compositions rendered in a manner essentially orig inal; and to Sargent Johnson of Berk eley, Calif., who exhibits works in sev eral mediums, among them two notably fine works In sculpture, done with al most primitive simplicity, yet with re finement of feeling. Notwithstanding the decision of the committee of awards there is none among all the exhibiting artists who displays such artistic feeling and real comprehension of artistic values as iAUra Wheeler Waring, whose portrait studies in oils are fine in color and are rendered with breadth, sympathy and skill, as well as with certain charm. Laura Wheeler Waring some years ago achieved success as an illus trator working In black and white, and the portrait studies shown in this ex hibition evidence the development of an unusual talent. There la strength and virility In the paintings of Hale A. Woodruff—“ Was herwomen,” “The Banjo Player,” “Old Woman Feeling Apples” and “Bridge Near Avalon, France." Henry B. Jones in "The Voodoo Tree” presents an interesting composi tion which has subjective significance and pictorial worth. Not only is this painting well composed, but rendered with evident deep feeling. Allan R. Freelon, who is a teacher In the public schools of Philadelphia and who makes good use of his Sum mer vacations and opportunities gen erally, Is well represented by a painting entitled "Icing the Boats,” and by a number of admirable works in black and white, among which mention should be made of “The Market Wagon” and “Elverson Building— Night.” King Daniel Ganaway Is repre sented by two very beautiful pictorial photographs, rightly Included in a fine arts exhibition because of their excep tional quality—“ The Gardener's Cart” and "The Spirit of Transportation,” the last a study of a locomotive. John W. Hardrick's portrait study entitled "The Civil War Veterans” Is academically good, and much can be said in praise of Horace Y. Anderson’s "Nodding by the Fire” and "Dreaming of Dixie,” which are not only well painted, but have atmosphere, Inward significance. Included In the exhibition Is one study of a nude from life—“Ande,” by Louis M. Jones, beautifully drawn. 24 NEW FELLOWSHIP AWARDS ANNOUNCED Social Science Research Council Lilt Includes Woman—Many States Represented. By the Associated Press.

U. S. WORK BUREAUS Wagner Employment Bill Is Scored in Radio Address. Br the Associated Press. Senator Bingham, Republican, of Connecticut, in a radio address last i night attacked a bill pending in the Senate Intended to authorlae the estab lishment of a national system of em ployment bureaus. Speaking over the National Broad casting chain, the Senator said the bill seeks to have the States surrender a vital power of “self-government In ex change for Federal appropriation,’’ and to accept Federal supervision and con trol. His address was In reply to one made two weeks ago by Senator Wag ner, Democrat, New York, author of the bill. Senator Bingham asserted the meas ure undertook to coerce the States into acceptance of the plan by threatening the establishment and maintenance of Federal employment agencies unless the State accepted the Federal policy. "This Is a dangerous doctrine,” Sena tor Bingham said. "I do not need to remind my radio audience that the War : of the American Revolution was fought as a protest against Infliction of laws upon people who did not desire them, or upon communities where the ma jority of the people were not In favor of them. * • * “We are continually trespassing upon the rights of the States and are cen ; tralizing the authority that belongs to them In agencies of the National Gov ernment.
