• APARTMENT FOUND
RENTED BY ‘HARDY'
— ■ - - - ■ i
Officers, However, Denied
Admission in Probing
Shooting of Attorney.
Police investigating the mysterious
•hooting of Russell Hardy, 44, special
assistant to the Attorney General,
late yesterday visited an apartment
rented to a "Russell Hardy" in the
3600 block of Connecticut avenue N.W.
Lt. Edgar Sims of the Alexandria
force and Detective Sergt. Thomas
MacVearry of No. 5 precinct went to
the apartment building and were in
formed that the apartment had been
rented on January 14. The officers
did not obtain admittance and refused
to say what information they sought
there.
Seek Owner of Revolver.
Meanwhile, Lt. Sims was seeking to
trace ownership of the revolver with
which Mr. Hardy was shot Saturday
night while in front of the George
Mason Hotel in Alexandria. The shoot
ing occurred while Mr. Hardy was
waiting for Mrs. Elisabeth C. Bu
chanan, a widow employed in his of
fice, who had gone into a dressing
room at the hotel.
Mr. Hardy declared he had been
•hot by a panhandler who become en
raged when he refused him money.
For several days, the wounded man
refused to turn over the bullet which
wounded him, and declined, police
said, to say who was with him on the
night of the shooting.
The gun was wrested from Mr.
Hardy’s assailant by a colored motorist
shortly after the shooting. The man
with the gun had climbed into the
motorist’s car and tried to com
mandeer it.
Bullet Identified.
A report that the bullet which '
wounded Mr. Hardy was fired from '
the gun seized by the colored motorist j
was made yesterday by Lt. John;
Fowler, ballistic expert of the Wash- j
ington police, following a series of I
tests.
Detectives said they hoped to inter
view Mrs. Buchanan in an effort to
shed additional light on the mystery.
Mrs. Buchanan several days ago made
a voluntary statement through a
spokesman at the Justice Department j
in which she explained she did not see !
the shooting and knew nothing of it.

Wireless Waves
In Midget Form
Carried in Pipe
By the Associated Press.
NEW YORK, Feb. 3.—Lilliputian
wireless waves so short that they
travel inside a pipe and are picked up
on an antenna only 1 inch high were
placed before the radio engineering
world here today by the Bell Tele- :
phone Laboratories.
In pipes, the engineers were in- '
formed, these midget waves promise !
to travel like telegraphed messages,
but W'ithout the limits imposed by a
wire. A single small pipe, between two i
cities, for example, might carry all
the telephone conversations wanted.
The waves exhibited ranged from
4 to 8 inches long. They traveled
through a 20-foot exhibition pipe.
Like all short radio waves these
midgets reflect like light. Metal discs,
used as mirrors, reflect the waves into
one end of the pipe. The inch-long
antenna picks them off at the other
end. They have been pitied a mile, i
The waves are made by tubes no '
larger than a common electiic light
bulb. Their "frequencies,” or pulsa
tions, are thousands of millions of
times a second.

“ARMY METHODS” URGED
IN SOCIAL DISEASE WAR

Gen. Pershing Also Proposes
Compulsory Medical Examina
tions for Marriage Applicants.
Ey the Associated Press.
* TUSCON, Ariz.. Feb. 3.—Gen. John
J. Pershing urged “Army methods”
and enlarged powers for public health
authorities last night as steps -in trtfe
Nation's battle against venereal dis
ease.
He proposed compulsory medical
examination for marriage applicants
and for expectant mothers, and active
campaigns in every community “to
find the infected and see to it that
they obtain proper medical care.”
Speaking from his hotel here to a
Nation-wide radio audience, Gen.
Pershing declared :
"My Army experience has proved to
me that syphilis can be practically
wiped out. Our military program • • *
during the World War resulted in one
of the most brilliant achievements in
preventive medicine. Besides the vic
tory of the battlefield, the A. E. F.
defeated venerael disease in its own
ranks and came home absolutely
clean.”
Gen. Pershing's talk was part of a
program observing the second annual
National Social Hygiene Day of the
American Social Hygiene Association's
National Anti-Syphilis Committee, of
which Gen. Pershing is chairman.
Others on the program were Dr. Ray
Lyman Wilbur, broadcasting from Los
Angeles, and United State Surg. Gen.
Thomas G. Parran of Washington.
RAIL REVENUE SLASH
SEEN IN RATE BOOST
Newspaper Publishers Inform
I. C. C. Paper Increase Would
Divert Traffic.
By (he Associated Press.
The American Newspaper Publish
ers’ Association told the Interstate
Commerce Commission today a 15 per
cent increase in railroad freight rates
on newsprint would cost the railroads
$410,342 a year instead of Increasing
their revenues.
The association said in a brief, filed
while the commission was studying the
rate question, that a 15 per cent in
crease would divert newsprint ship
ments to other forms of transporta
tion. The railroads, It added, thus
would receive less revenue than under
present rates. The association repre
sents approximately 500 publishers.
A brief filed by the State of North
--
Dakota and a dozen of its farm and
business organizations questioned the
railroads’ showing of need for Increased
revenue.
It asserted past increases “have not
been justified” and that a further in
crease would "pyramid” rates on the
Increases allowed last October.

their home. They will be turned over
to New York authorities for prosecu
tion tinder Warrants charging them
with swindling Charles H. Vollm-r,
wealthy Amsterdam man, in a loan
scheme.
The bureau said that Mr. Vollmer
lent the pair a total of $8,500 <mi Jew
dry falsely app.aised at more than
>10,000. The men approached Mr.
Vollmer with the representation that
they were acquainted with friends of
Mr. Jfollmer In Kansas City and had
lost all their money on the races at
Saratoga. The victim became suspici
ous, it was stated, when he saw the
alleged swindlers in the company of
the Jeweler who had made the ap
praisals.
Bureau flies show that both men
have been arrested many times in
various parts of the country.
