KM SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 3, 1921. ADD TO FOREST PRESERVE. Three new land purchases by the forest preserve commissioners in creases the forest preserve district by sixty-two acres, and a fourth deal, now being completed, will add 103 more acres to the belt of wooded land that belongs to the county. The for est preserve, one of the most beauti ful reaches of its kind in the country, now covers nearly 20,000 acres. "When we have bought 35,000 acres we will stop," said Adolph-D. Werner, attorney for the forest preserve board. "Our latest purchases are, of course, adjacent to the other forest preserve land, and it now is a wooded belt that reaches from the Lake county Illinois line to the state line of Indiana." The recent purchases are a thirty- j eight-acre tract west of the. Des Plaines river and south of 31st street, bought for $3,800 from George W. Stone; twenty-seven-acre tract along the north bank of the Chicago river, a mile north of the city limits, bought for $21,000 from Belshe & McKellar, and a seven-acre tract purchased from the Chicago Heights Land Association for $5,000. The 103 acres now being negotiated for are in the Palos Park district. The sum of $43,000 will be paid to Frank Tuma for the land, it is expected. PUBLIC CAMPS FOR BOYS. Public camps for boys will be estab lished in connection with the forest preserves of Cook county if plans being formulated by the council com mittee on parks, playgrounds and beaches are carried through. In addi tion to the fresh-air camps Alderman Joseph B. McDonough, chairman of the committee, will ask the council to authorize the leasing of vacant lots in various parts of the city to serve as athletic fields. The committee is now touring east ern cities to study methods of con ducting playgrounds and beaches. Ac cording to an open letter sent by Chairman McDonough from Montreal to other members of the city council, the committee was converted to the advantages of municipally conducted camps while in Detroit. "The committee," said Chairman McDonough, "was very much im pressed with the number of children taking advantage of the playing field, fishirg and bathing facilities fur nished at the camp. "The committee investigated the housing conditions, the sanitary con ditions and also the financial arrange ments under which the camp is op erated. It was found that the camp is self-sustaining on a small weekly fee charged the children. "The committee obtained addresses of fourteen children of the camp, and after visiting their parents were in formed that it is a great pleasure for them to have such an establishment operated by the city. They said they were satisfied that their children were being properly taken care of and were receiving the benefits of outdoor life away from the dangers of the city." OBITUARY Daniel W. Kaufman.

Haas, the popular Re corder of Deeds, may be the next Mayor of Chicago. He is much talked of for the Republican nomination and has a host of friends in the Demo cratic party. That bright, able and popular young Democrat, James M. Whalen, will probably lead the Democratic party to victory next year as a candidate for Trustee of the Sanitary District of Chicago. He will fill the place with credit both to himself and to the peo ple who elect him. Edgar A. Jonas would make a good judge. He is one of the most popular members of the bar. Colonel August W.

I John Skelton Williams, former controller of the currency (portrait herewith), has been having a lively time with federal reserve system offi cials before a congressional commis sion. His criticisms of the systems' credit policies aroused resentment on the part of the system's two highest officers, Governor Harding of the re serve board, and Governor Strong of the New York reserve bank. In one of the frequent verbal interchanges, Governor Harding charged across the committee room, swinging his fist, but was halted bv strusrclinsr associates just in front of his adversary. A few minutes later Mr. Strong, while reading to the commission a report which chanred Mr. Williams with 'false and misleading statements," was interrupted by the former controller who shouted: "That statement of yours is false." Mr. Williams charged that the board had countenanced undue lendings nie last two years, for speculative uses, while forcing liquidation In southern and western agricultural districts, and that it had allowed extortionate in terest charges, and generally failed to "ease down" inflation. Open Disarmament Conference Only by open sessions, with the world the world compelling obedience to its diplomats what we seek in the disarmament conference." "Pa" Harding Warren Gamaliel evidently isn't the only live wire in the Harding family. Dr. George T. Harding, the President's father, after befog a widow er eleven years, has gone and taken to himself a second wife. She was Miss Alice Severns, who has been for several years the doctor's assist ant and office nurse. The doctor is a Civil war veteran, seventy-six, and has been a practicing physician in Marion, Ohio, for fifty years; his new wife is fifty-two. Really, it was quite romantic. They slipped away together and went to Detroit. They were refused a license in Windsor, Canada. So they went on to Monroe, Mich., where they were married by Rev. Frank T. Knowles. Then they returned to Marion. There the doctor took his bride to her home and started for his own home, four blocks away, saying "Good night, Al ice ; I'll see you in the morning." In the morning the doctor went to his office and resumed practice. The bride paid him a visit and said maybe she'd keep on helping. But she moved into the doctor's home, put on an apron and busied herself about the dinner. The happy couple announced that they would be at home, for a time at least.

He says: "The disarmament conference must be held in the open. I realize the disadvantages of this course. I think I understand fully what may be said against it. But we have had our lesson. We have seen a world conference, commencing under the most favorable auspices, with ideal ism publicly expressed, and then have had that idealism throttled in secrecy. "The old diplomatic game is one which at all hazards must be avoided in the coming conference, in order that the world may be benefited and that the ultimate object of disarma ment and world peace may be ob tained. The only way in which we may avoid the pitfalls of secret diplo macy is by the sunlight of publicity. looking on and the public opinion of will, can be obtained from European Marries Again Soviet Russia One hundred million soviet paper rubles for the journey from Verkhnlu dinsk to the western border of Russia was the modest estimate furnished Charles R. Crane former United States minister to China, by authorities in Chita. These rubles are not in circu lation in the Far Eastern republic, but can be bought at the rate of six to fifteen kopeks silver to 1,000 rubles of the soviet issue. Mr. Crane and his son, John; his secretary, D. M. Brodie; his inter preter, Paul M. Dutko, and W. M. Palmer left Chita for Russia en route to the United States July 2. When preparing for the journey in Peking, Mr. Crane secured a box car and stocked it with commodities he be lieved would be vastly more useful than rubles.
