Montanan Wants President
; to Go Fishing and Not
Make Speeches.
A tall, bronzed weaterner from Mon
tana. wearing a broad-brimmed bat
and handing out solid copper cards
with his name, “T. Joe Cahill.” and a
silhouette of himself on horseback up
In the big hills, is in the Capital to
welcome President Hoover out to that
country for fishing in the ‘ dude’’ ranch
trout streams and lakes.
Cahill is looping that the controversy
ever possible political speeches will not
prevent the President's trip, or hinder j
nit enjoyment of the great out-of-doors.
*‘l am not here to ask the President
to make a speech,” said Cahill, ‘ but 1
want him to get in some first-class
fishing. I understand he likes fishing.
Well, we've got what he sants.”
The copper calling card, which Is
thin and flimsy, the most unusual one
©f Its kind yet to turn up In the Capi
tal, discloses that "‘ t. Joe” does not
represent any one place which is look
ing for publicity by asking the Presi- I
dent to throw its own name into the
front page headlines of the country.
100 Ranches in Association.
"Executive secretary Dude Ranchers’
Association,” read the black letters on
the copper card. The strapping Mon
tanan explained that at this time there
will be no official invitation to any one
Elace because the President's itinerary
as not yet been made public in detail.
There are more than 100 ''dude”
ranches in the organization of which
"T. Joe” Is the secretary, and it ought
to be reasonably certain that one of
these would fall into the general vicini
ty of the President's Western tour down
the Rocky Mountain parks —6o he
There Is also some kind of a secret
•bout mountain trout which the Presi
dent may be given a taste of in Wash
ington, if all plans carry through, but
*> far, that is a dark secret.
Cahill has an engagement with the
President on Monday, when he hopes
to issue a general invitation to “go
On the ‘‘Last Frontier.”
Most of the ‘‘dude ranches,” Cahill
explained, are in Montana and Wyom
ing. They are ‘ nestled in the moun
tainous regions of these two Far Western
States,” he said, “situated on the last
frontier. They are in the mouths of
canyons, among foothills, or in clear
ings of the forest, and comprise little
groups of cabins, corrals and bunk
“They are not pretentious places, but
rustic and unique. They are establish«M
as permanent lodges, meeting the de
mand of the tourists who seek some
thing new and some new place in which
to rest and play. They serve to per
petuate the spirit, the glamor and the
romance of the Old West.
“Sllfce 1904, when Howard. Willis and
Aldon Eaton established the famous
Eaton Brothers ‘Dude’ Ranch at Wolf,
Wyo.. the ranches have sprung into
popularity, and annually attract thou
eands of visitors westward.”

representing the Federal Government,
deshed the committee to do. He said
the committee was to select the official \
portrait by such methods as the mem
bars might determine from among the
numerous portraits in existence.
The committee oiganized itself with
Dr. Holland as chairman. It was de
cided that the various members should

of Washington pjrtraiture as possible
for the consideration of the committee
at its next meeting, which will be held
June 27 in the fine arts division of the
Library of Congress.
Never before has a national body of
professional critics undertaken to
choose the most authentic likeness of
George Washington. The work will
entail the examination of a great many
portraits, most of which are well
known, but many others of which are
held by private owners and are less
known to, the public.
An appeal is being made to the gen
eral public to assist the committee in
lti work of viewing and examining
every portrait of Washington in exist
“It is desired,” says a statement is
sued by the commission, "that those
having knowledge of authentic por
traits of Washington, known to have
been painted from life, get in touch
with the chairman, Dr. Leicester B.
Holland, of the Library of Congress, so
that the committee may take the neces
sary steps to Include such picture in
the survey.”
To Be Used in Books.
The portrait finally chosen will be
used in the publication of the books,
pamphlet* and posters of the George ;
Washington Bicentennial Commission
for distribution throughout the United
States. The stamp of approval by the
United States Bicentennial Commis
sion upon the selected portrait will,
according to last night's announce
ment, give the “highest authoritative
indorsement and. it is hoped, bring to a i
satisfactory conclusion the contention !
as to which is the best likeness of the
first President that has occupied artis- I
tic minds for more than a century
and a half ”
Among the artists of portraits, minia
tures and sketches of Washington, all
alleged to have been from life, are th?
following: John Singleton Copley,

Differences Pointed Out.
After seeing Sharpies' portrait of
Washington, Washington Irving, the
famous American author and critic, in j
1854 wrote in part of It: "There is much
more of life and animation than in that
of Stuart, but the latter (the Stuart!
portrait* has more calm dignity. The j
mouth is different from that by Stuart I
and approaches more the natural shape
of that taken of him when he was 40
years of age by Peale. A set of arti
ficial teeth, which I believe he did not
wear until after the Revolutionary War,
altered the shape of his mouth, drew It
down at the corners and lengthened
the upper lip.

Gary Cooper is again up to his
old habits, which means that he
never loses his scowl, never does
much more than screw up his
mouth, and yet is consistently like
able. As the bold and bad "Llano
Kid." for whom there Is a SSOO re
ward, dead or alive, in Texas, he
goes to South America, pretending
to be the son of a splendid and
sentimental woman. There through
her influence the wickedness peels
off him and Instead of robbing her,
as he and his crooked “manager”
had planned, he remains to “honor
and to obey" and to keep cn in a
role that he had done so well at.
Mr. Cooper's gauntness has never
been more apparent. It seems al
most time for a director to come
along and let him smile. Still, the
female heart is said to flutter as
it is. His melancholic disposition
will probably cling to him through
life. Emma Dunne plays the mother
role most sympathetically, and Fay

Knew Women.” which once upon
a time went by the name of "The
Second Man.” and was prepared for
theatrical digestion by the gifted
Mr. S. N. Berhman, has been wafted
onto the screen. It may be seen
this week at R-K-O Keith’s.
Perhaps it’s because the superb
memory of ‘ Journey’s End’’ is linger
ing in this entertainment house that
“He Knew Women” seemed stilted,
crude and unreal. A complete anti
thesis to Mr. Sherrill's war drama,
it represents the so-called "soaiety”
animal as a sometimes brilliant, but
more noticeably two-footed moron.
Here at the beginning one finds a
middle-aged, admittedly third-rate
writer planning to marry a woman
merely for her money. Into his
life at the same time comes a young
girl, who has an unconcealed pas
sion ior him, but being an inde
terminate thing she cries, "I displse
you!” quite as much as, “I love
you!” To complete the four-sided
triangle Is a nice young man, “a
scientific mole,” who is not exciting
enough to be able to win the girl
until after he has taken a shot at
his literary rival.
It is due to Lowell Sherman alone
that this film rises to amusing
heights. Hls performance is splen
did throughout. He. in fact, makes
of himself a remarkably lifelike
being. He polishes his role and
plays it for all it is worth, putting
the other actors to shame. Although
Alice Joyce looks remarkably well
in an evening her voice is
dreadfully against her. The other
two members of the cast, David
Manners, who so distinguishes him
self In “Journey’s End,” and Francis
Dade, seem in this picture more
like tyros at the trade
The outcome of it all is that Lowell
marries his money, the young girl
changes her mind for the nth time
and everything turns out quite as
one had expected it should.
Short subjects and the R-K-Olians
playing with their accustomed verve
complete the program.

BALTIMORE, Md., June 7.—Mrs.
Cromwell MacArthur, former wife of
Maj. Gen. Douglas MacArthur, was
married today to Lionel Atwill, Eng
lish actor, at hier estate at Eccleston,
in the Green Spring Valley. The cere
money was performed by Rev. Edgar
C. Powers, pastor of Towson Metho
dist Episcopal Church.
Mrs. MacArthur, whose first husband
was Walter B. Brooks, jr., of this city,
was given in marriage by James H. R
Cromwell, her brother. Walton Liv
ingston Oakley of New York was best
man. A group of friends from New
York, Philadelphia and Baltimore wit
nessed the ceremony at 4:30 p.m.
The tall, gold-ornamented gates to
the estate, which is one of the show
places of Maryland, were locked and
under guard until the bridal party left
for a honeymoon trip. Strict orders
had been given to prevent any one
from passing through the gates.
Meanwhile. the bride's yacht,
, Mammy, was being fitted out at the
Maryland Yacht Club for the honey
mooners. Mr. Atwill's was tied up at
the same pier. It was dismantled and
is undergoing repair. The Mammy's
crew took provisions to the ship, card
tables and other supplies. The cur
tains to all windows were drawn.
Officers of the yacht club planned
to give Mr. and Mrs. Atwill an ap
propriate send-off Mrs. Atwill Is the
only woman on the club’s roster. The
saluting cannon was loaded and flags
were tq. be dipped when the brida*
party sailed. The club's officers has
received word Mr. and Mrs. Atwill
would sail for a cruise of the Chesa
peake Bay at 6 p.m.
Yacht Returns to Basin.
Then, without warning, ropes were
hauled in and the yacht put out.
Word passed that Mr. and Mrs. Atwill
had decided to embark at the long
dock However, a short time later the
yacht put back to the club basin,
and at 7:30 p.m. members of the crew
said she and her husband had left
the night and would not be used. At
Mrs. Atwill’s home, however, It was
sadi she and her husband had left
there shortly after the ceremony and
were aboard the boat.
Mr. Atwill applied for the marriage
license today at the Towson Court
House. He gave his age as 45 and the
bride's as 36. Both, he said, had been
divorced twice. Mr. Atwill’s first wife
was Phyllis Relp, whom he divorced in
1919, and his second was Elsie Mackay,
an actress noted for her beauty, who
appeared with him in several of his
plays. They were divorced in 1928.
The latest nuptials were first report
ed last December in New York. At that
time Mr. Atwill did not deny that a
romance existed, and said ' marriage
was a possibility.”

Special Commission to took*
Into Proposals and
Unofficial Advice.
By the Associated Press. » vrr*A
Facing demands In both branches d
Congress for an investigation of- -Ua
activities, the United States Shipping
Board decided yesterday to delay action
on a much controverted shipping ha*
sale to permit a presidential commission
to study the proposals and advise the
; board. ,r :**.*:•>
Three steamship companies —tye
United States lines, the Black Diamond
Steamship Co. and the Cosmopolitan
Shipping Co. —have bid for the Govern
ment-owned transatlantic freight line,
the American Diamond and the Ameri
ca-France lines. Black Diamond now »
operates American Diamond and Cos
mopolitan the America-Franoe line.
The President asked Chairman T. ▼. ,
O’Connor of the Shipping Board to <
postpone action on the three bids until
a commission he would appoint could
consider the proposals. Although the
President technically has no Jurisdiction
over the board, it decided to withhold
action until the commission could
Resolutions Pending.
Meanwhile, two resolutions calling
for investigations of the Shipping Board
were pending in Congress. One meas
ure by Senator McKeller, Democrat,
Tennessee, has been blocked by Sena
tor Copeland. Democrat, New York.
In the House. Representative Lehlbach,
Republican, New Jersey, introduced a
similar resolution. It has not beet}
acted upon.
Sale of the transatlantic freight ’
lines was delayed for a time because of
pending mail contracts, but last week
the board voted to pass the proposals
to its finance committee for final con
sideration. The President’s action and
the board's move yesterday forestalled
Immediate decision.
The contest between the three lines
for the two Government-owned route#
over which 18 ships are operated has
been bitter. Original bids were made a
little more than a year ago. The ships
for which they were bidding have had
an especially lucrative grain business
recently from New York to Hamburg
and French ports.
Originally the United States Lines of
fered about $25 a ton for ths 18 ves
sels, while Black Diamond and Cos- 1
mopolitan bid approximate sl4. The
Black Diamond bid later was increased
to slightly more than the United States *
offer, but Cosmopolitan contended that
as an operator of a Government-owned
line it should be favored under the
terms of the 1920 merchant marine aet.
Arguments of Lines.
At final hearings on the sale It was
said that United States Lines were at
tempting to establish a “monopoly” of
North Atlantic trade, and that this
company sought the new routes as part
of a “stock scheme.” United States
Lines countered with the assertion that
the freight ships would be a necessary
supplement to present passenger service.
The United States Lines have bor
rowed $15,750,000 out of the merchant
marine construction fund for new ships,
and propose, if they are the successful’
bidder in this case, to construct for '
transatlantic service two giant pas
senger ships which would coat 'About
$30,000,000 each and have a cruising
speed slightly more than that made by
the Germgn linens Europa and Bremen
on their record, cffssinga of the Atlantic.
