In prehistoric times, records
and messages were inscribed
on tablets of stone. Few men
could decipher them and
fewer could inscribe them
intelligently and legibly.
The press has taken the
place of the stone tablets
and where formerly a mes
sage reached but few, your
message today reaches mil

Gen. March Says Slackers

'at Any Price.'
Will Make Formal Demand
for His Return When
Peace Is Declared.
Testimony Shows That Romig'

$105,000 in Gold.

Nrvv York Herald Bureau, )
Wushliifton, I>. C.? May 9. )
<3. C. Bergdoll, slacker, is entirely |
wrong If he thinks he can remain in
Germany as a fugitive from justice.
Major-Gen. March to-day informed the
special House committee investigating
the draft dodger's escape that the i
United States Army is determined te:
get him back "at any price."
In secret session Gen. March dis
closed to the committee what steps
now are being taken to effect Berg
doll's extradition. He gave every indi
cation that present plans of the Ad
ministration are to make a formal de
mand on Germany for the slacker's |
surrender as soon as the technical
state of war between the two coun
tries is ended, lit case his return is not
accomplished by that time.
Mrs. Bergdoll, the slacker's mother,
will be called by the committee to ex
plain what she knows about his es
At present the Administration is nego
tiating through the British and Canadian
Governments, Major Henry T. Allen, com
manding the American Army of Occupa
tion. and Loring Dresel, American Com
missioner at Berlin, Gen. March is un
derstood to have Informed the commit
tee. Great Britain and Canada have
been asked to demand his extradition
because he escaped to Germany on
forged Canadian passports. Up to the
present time it is understood that these
governments have not shown a dispo
sition to become Involved in the case.
The first request was met with a sug
gestion that this Government should sup
r!y more Information, it was learned.
Held Up by State ef Wtr,
Gen. March Informed the committee
that the United States could not formally
demand Bergdoll because of the state
of war setting aside extradition treaties
and could not send a force of soldiers
ufter hlrn because this would violate .he
terms of the armistice, which prohibit
any military operationa outside the oc
cupied zones.
"Bergdoll is only one of 150,000 draft
dodgers, but lie Is a Aery bad specimen,"
said Gen. March. "We are determined to
get him back at any price. The two
Americans who attempted to capture
him In violation of International law
have our entire sympathy. It would
have been very satisfactory to me per
sonally at least If they had succeeded
and turned Bergdoll over to the Ameri
can Army of Occupation. The two Ameri
cana who made the attempt were ex
army men, formerly attached to the
bureau of military investigation. When
news of their work reached here I of
fered to assume all responsibility for
their action, but this was not necessary
because they were not members of the
ax my."
"Who was it that apologized to Ger
many for their action?" .Representative
L.uhrlng (Ind.) asked.
"Gen. Allen," Oen. March replied. "He
I did so on his own responsibility. He
did right according to -international
"Would you have apologized?"
"Not a bit."
Gen. March said he discussed the re
lease of Bergdoll to hunt "the pot of
gold" for less than a minute with Ad
jutant-General Harris, and Instructed
him to grant the request If he deemed
? lon.ooo in Gold Taken Oat.
Testimony to-day confirmed reports
that James E. Romig and Mrs. Bergdoll
were able to get $106,000 In gold out of
the Treasury in October and November,
1W9. when It was generally supposed
gold withdrawals were prohibited.
Bergdoll said this was the gold which
he burled.
W. t?. Alexander. Treasury Depart
ment teller, told how Romig came to
the Treasury three times with big
bundles of Federal Reserve notes and
demanded gold.
"I naturally refused to give him gold
They Must Have Music in Their Daily Diet to Thrive,
Something With a Heart Appeal, Declares F. C.
Billings at Chicago Convention.
SproiaJ Despatch to The New VulK Heeai t>.
Chicago, May 9.?Music, the univeraai
language, was described as a marvellous
tonic in a new sphere of healing to-day
It was at the opening meeting of the
music trades convention, 5,000 men and
women being in attendance.
"Housewives haven't been consider
ate of their plants and flowers," said
F. C. Billings, president of a Milwaukee
music company. "1 Just can't keep
flowers in my house. They complain,
and they look so lovely, too.
"Well, no wonder?Just as the hu
man being to be healthy and Jubilant
requires nourishment complete in essen
tial proteids and fats, so the roses, vio
lets, lilies, petunias and begonias simply
must have music in their dally diet.
"Try it, my friend. But a vase of
roses on your piano at home and then
softly and lovingly play Reginald de
Koven'a 'Oh. Promise Me,' or 'Annie
Laurie,' or 'Then You'll Remember Me,"
something that has a heart appeal, not
this Immoral, insane Jazz. And watch
those flowers blossom out and blush
and he went to my superiors," said Mr. |
Alexander. "Later he came back with ;
nn order from Assistant Secre
tary of the Treasury Leffinmvell and
I gave him the gold. On one trip he
got >25,000. on another f39,000 and on a
third |60,000. The Treasury by the diplo
matic manner of making as much
trouble as possible for those w ho de- j
manded gold was seeking to prevent its |
withdrawal, but I suppose they decided i
that if gold were demanded for Fed- |
[?ral Reserve notes, there was nothing
tslse to do but pay it."
Committee members questioned
whether Federal Reserve notes required
sold payment and \Mr. Alexander in
dated this was the case. He testified
iliat the Bergdoll money was brought
mainly in $10 and $20 notes and that it
-equired two hours to count the $60,000
jundle. Ail three times Romlg's count
was short, he said. Romig and Mrs.

Jazz is the evil spirit of music, de

of the music industries committee.
"Jazz," said Dr. Morton, "expresses

chaos. It accords with the, devastating,
volcanic spirit that has burst forth over
the world in the last six. years.
