France's most sensational murder trial since the acquittal of the wife of former Premier Joseph (aillaux of the murder charge in the summer of 1914 opened today when Henri La.ndru, "modern bluebearti," was arraigned charged with killing a dosen "wives" anti fiams tes for their asoney. Crowd Storms Court. A tremendous crowd, composed mainly of women, st',rmed the court building, but were held bacK by a cordon of fifty polwe-muen that guard ed the etzIranee. Admission was by ticket only. Landru was taken into the court room by a secret passage. Ile was calm and seemed atuse-d at the ex citement his ease had arousel. As he sat in tih- dock and glanced about the, crowded courtroom he smiled oc casionally. The first sensation camne when it Was learned t hat the pclee have discove red a woans named Tesiree Guillin, whose name and age are the sane as that of Landru's fourth "fiancee." The noiention had alleged at the prelintin irv h arings that sho met saith u in Jun , 1915, and lived with hin at his villa at Vernotuillet until the following August, when she dis appeared. It was assumed by the prose it in that she hail been killed. It is now reported that the woman was fti:ul working as :a governem in a w althy 'aris family.

Answers Description. Despite her story, she answers ex actly the description of the missing "fiancee," even to the sixteen false teeth. She was born In the same town an the missing woman and ad mitted having lived In the same hous' of Parin as the missing woman. Landru's counsel said that the dis covery was news to him, despite ru mors that he had planned to produce one of the m!ssing women at the trial. Immediately after Judge Gilbert, president of the Assizes court, clad in his scarlet robes, had mounted the bench and took his seat alongside his fellow justices, court was called to or der and all was ready for the exami. nat!on of prospective jurors. The trial took on the appearance of a society event, with large numbers of monogramed limousines parked out side. They had brought a crowd of richly gowned women from Paris. The women seemed more anxious to see Landru than to hear the formal inter rogations put to the talesmen. Smiles Under Scrutiny. There were about 400 persons in the courtroom, including witnesses. talesnwn, newi. spap er men and specta tors. Every eye was turned upon Landru, but the prisoner bore up smiling and complacent under the scrutiny. Landru sat at the left of the judge's bench alongside Matri Giafferi, one of the keenest criminal lawyers in France. The wardens of the Versailles jail said that Landru had spent a quiet night. He arose early as usual and drank two cups of coffee without eat ing his allowance of bread. He was in good humor and hununed the strains of a once popular love ditty. When he entered court Landru was manacled and guarded by two gen darmes. He wore a neat, dark suit, apd his derby hat was carried by one of the policemen. Unexpected speed was made in securing a jury. The full jury was sworn in at 1:30 o'clock. Ind the prosecutor immediately began read ing the indictment. Women Hiss Accused. Several women dressed in black. relatives of some of the alleged vic tims., hissed when landru entered the courtroom. Landru disregarded them, but smiled brightly at the smartly gowned women who filled the specta tors' gallery. The prisoner stood while he gave his pedigree. lie spoke in a voice scarcely above a whisper. The jury is mixed, containing three workmen. One hundred and fifty witnesses had been summoned, of which thirty were for the defense. The indictment charged Landru with the specific murder of eleven women. Direct examination of Landru by the court is expected tomorrow, when Advocate General Godefroi, in charge of the prosecution, will make formal demand that Landru be sent to the guillotine. "We have nothing up our sleeve," said M. Ginfferi to the International News Service. "We believe that the prosecution will fall to make out even a circumstantial case. Landru will contend that he never killed a woman: that he never even struck a woman in his life." Landru was alleged to have burned the corpses ot' some of his alleged victims in his villa at Glambals. He contends, however, that the ahes found there were from pork bones which he hurned in his furnace. He declares that he cannot reveal the whereabouts of some of the missing women because he is pledged to secrecy. l-ven-mioney bets were made in Paris that landru would be ac quitted. COMPULSORY SCHOOL LAW UPHELD BY CIRCUIT COURT UPPER MARLBORO, Md., Nov. 7. -That Maryland's compulsory school law must be complied with in Prince Georges county Is evidenced by the conviction by a jury in the circuit sourt here of James Smith, of this town.

Questien Sure to Arise. Though oil is not specifically men tioned on the agenda of the confer once, there is little doubt that the sub ject will come up for discussion, and it was learned on high authority today that the American attitude toward the question has been tentatively for mulated and is ready for submission to the other powers at the proper time. This. plan contemplates a working agreement between the various pow trs, based upon the principle of equal opportunity. In all there are twenty one articles, or provisions, which may be summarised as follows: 1.

Each government to support the others in securing bunkering facil! ties. 14. Each government to inform the other as to companies in which it holds a majority interest and to agrce that the acts of such companies whil be acknowledged as its own acts. 15. Powers to agree that the pr'in ciple of equality of treatment shall govern in all mandated territories; that American-controlled companks, approved by the United States, shall be given opportunity either by actual control of oil-bearing lands or by othr arrangements, to acquire and dispose of an amount of oil equal to that of nationals of any third country and always at least one-half the amount given the mandatory power. 16.

ARBUCKLEGETS REK FGRACE IN DEATH TRIAL Case to Be Put Over Until Next Monday Because of Two Holidays This Week. By ELLIS H. MARTIN. Ester-a.al MwN service. SAN FRANCISCO. Nov. 7 Though scheduled to go on trial to day for manslaughter as the result of the death of Virginia Rappe, one of the guests at his Labor Day rum party here, Roscoe ("Fatty") Ar buckle, screen comedian, gained a week's grace. . A combination of circumstances entered into the delay. Two holi days this week-election day and Armistice Day-promised to break up the trial had It started, as sched uled.

Minta Durfee Arbuckle, has been living for the last two weeks in a hotel, was on hand for the trial.

Despite the fact that Arbuckle has been living for two weeks within a stone's throw of the scene of the gay hotel party out of which the tragedy resulted, few persons knew the film star was in the city. The two weeks probably have been the quietest in the screen comedian's life-at least in recent years. A phonograph has furnished his chief diversion. Most of his meals have been served In his room.
