The universal language of well made cake and needlework combin ing both beauty and utility will link the farm woman from Scandinavia and the one from the hills of Georgia better than any language. Thus spoke Fru Marie Michelet of Sandiviken, Norway, yesterday, on the eve of the opening of the third triennial conference of the Associated Country Women of the World. Fru Michelet is vice president, and in her own country is called the ‘‘grandmother of housewives’ organi zations.” Pointing out that a number of the delegates will be from foreign lands and will need a translater to understand speeches, Fru Michelet said the food and handicrift exhibits of local country women being set up in the Government Auditorium will speak a language that any may un derstand. Fru Michelet, however, has been in America many times and speaks per fect English. Her husband is & pro fessor of theology at the University of Oslo. 7,000 Expected to Attend. Almost 7,000 women are expected to attend the conference sessions, which opens at noon tomorrow in Constitution Hall. Fru Michelet seemed deeply stirred by the response to the convention, only 1,800 delegates having been ex pected when it was planned. The universal interest of rural women in home management, handicraft, mar keting from the farm, and child study is illustrated by the numbers flock ing into the District to meet with their sisters from Germany, Latvia, Palestine, Ceylon, and a dozen other distant places. They are coming for an “experi ence meeting" on such topics and will carefully avoid politics or even speeches that would touch on poli Peace Built up in Homes. "World peace is not built up around political discussion tables,” Fru Michelet said, quoting one of her countrymen, “but in the hearts and homes of men and women. "The foundation of our view of life, the bottom colors of our minds we bring with us from the home. Those are the sources of armistice or peace. "Men of coming generations will be influenced toward world peace by women of all classes and nations learning to understand, love and re spect each other. “I regard the international nature of the association as one of the most important contributions to world peace today, despite the fact that the or ganization has no political purposes whatever.” It was Fru Michelet who suggested Hughes’ Grandson Honored.

Women of the four Scandi navian countries, Norway, Sweden, Denmark and Finland, were leaders in housewives' organizations before the turn of the century, laying foun dations for the present international association, and are eager to view the progress made in America. Class Distinction Unknown. “In my own home community of 20,000 population almost every woman belongs to some housewives’ organiza tion," Fru Michelet says. There are 13 organizations. Class distinctions do not exist in them. “You may see a distinguished and wealthy lady driving to a meeting about furniture, weaving or preserv ing with her cook, her laundress and her dressmaker in the back seat.” Today delegates to the conference will register from 1 to 10 p.m„ and are invited to vesper service in Wash ington Cathedral at 4 p.m. Tomorrow delegates will register at the United States Government Audi torium, between Twelfth and Four teenth streets on Constitution avenue. nuii in uren unepun.

By the Associated Press. QUEBEC, Quebec. May 30.—After using an airplane, a warrant and a ship’s searching party in a vain at tempt to find Ann Harding, his for mer wife, Harry Bannister reluctant ly recessed the international chase tonight. The acress’ ex-husband, failing to reach Quebec before Miss Harding and their 7-year-old daughter Jane had embarked for England, first swore out a warrant charging the film star with abducting the j child. Then, with a constable wondering what to do with the warrant, Ban nister searched the S. S. Empress of Australia as it was about to sail for England. Refuses to Believe She Left That was the ship on which Miss Harding first had made reservations, and Bannister refused for a time to believe she already had left, 16 hours earlier, on another ship. However, the tall pursuer, beret In hand, peered about the suites Miss Harding had engaged and found only a bouquet of flowers. Bannister, his face severe, then an nounced he would fly back to New York. ..Quebec airport officials announced he took off shortly after 3 o’clock witn Stanley Harte, his counsel, expecting to fly direct to New York. Before he left, Harte said he would confer with other attorneys in New York to decide upon future action. Bannister’s next move, he added, may not be made for another six months. Warrant in British Court. Antoine Rivard, lawyer for Ban nister said the warrant was sworn out in a British court, and that Miss Harding can be brought back from England without extradition proceed ings. He asserted that “for every and each day she detained the child” she was guilty of abduction in Canada as well as in the United States. He claimed the warrant could have been obtained in either country. Bannister swore out-the abduction warrant after a hurried airplane flight from New York. At that city he had declared: “I think the mother should have the child, but if she es tablishes a foreign residence I may never see her again.” Have 300-Mile Lead. But Miss Harding and the 7-year old Jane apparently had a 300-mile lead down the scenic St. Lawrence River, which yesterday she considered "too, too divine.” Bannister conferred with three at torneys at the Chateau Frontenac. If he still had plans to prevent Miss Harding and Jane from reaching English shores, he would not discuss them. His plane got here just in time to miss the departing' actress, who is under contract for a British film. No one seemed to know just what the next step would be in the inter national pursuit Officials said many elaborate arrangements, including spe cial government passes, immigration permits and passports, would be nec essary for any attempt to board a pilot tender to reach the liner. Bannister’s kidnaping warrant was drawn under section 316 of the crim inal code, dealing with abduction of a child under the age of 14 years. Bannister said he had not decided what to do. "I can say this, however,” he told V-''. newspaper men, "I have not canceled my booking on the Australia. I don't say definitely that I'm going. But certainly I have not canceled my reservations."
