Pag la ic91 &F - . paa az TUBERCi TICKET IS SCORNE DtSOtve Mansfield Is Heroic Sksuth Wt Ran Down Groundless Charges. A tubeslar patient from Mt. UnSited tates Hospital, on Savenue, was yesterday ar in a Fourteenth street lunch : "bawltfe d" out by a Waskln - for eating too nun and awn a ride in the patrol wagon to. precinct station because he tendrd a Department meat ticket for his 7 et lunch. Greek Refuses tieket. The incident began in the Model sLunchroom, 714 Fourteen street northwest, where Shuford C. Fincher. the veteran in question, ate his lunch tory to calling on an occulist the examination of his eyes. He ordered to report there by the Public Health Service, which fur. nished him with a meal ticket worth 31. Hundreds of thousands of these ickets have been issued to men in the government hospitals. "After I had eaten my lunch, I offered the meal ticket to the man at the counter," Fincher told The Times day. "The man, a Greek, refused to Ise t it. saying it was no good. "While I was trying to convince im that the United states guvern nt was good for it, a man stepped p and said. 'I'll take charge of this case. Just turn it over to me.' "I asked the man what he had to do with it. He turned back his coat, showed me a badge and said he was a Washington detective. "When I told him I was too weak to go out in the weather, he went to policeman near by and had the trot wagon called. While we were alting for the wagon he asked me bow much I had eaten. "'Only 71 cents' worth,' I told him. He bawled me out and said: 'Why, I ate 30 cents' worth, and that was enough. You birds think you can have it noft-eoaua you are feeding at the expense of the Government. I with I had someone to pay for my eate.' ' Sergeant Got Brave. Dragged up to the bar at No. 1 station like an ordinary criminal, Pincher was asked his name, address, age and the usual questions. Pledbqfor an opportunity to put up bond or 1i up friends at the hos pital, Pincher was shunted into a back room and told to wait until the cap tain could be interviewed him his When I got up from a chair and started back to ask the sergeant to let me go, because I was due at 2 o'clock at the office of the oculist. the sergeant said: 'You sit down or I'll knock you down and drag you into a cell.' "All that saved me was the appear ance of the captain, who, when he saw my meal ticket, ordered me re leased." Da.edve Mansfield Was Sleuth. The polce blotter at No. 1 station shows Pincher listed for "Investiga tion." The arresting officer was given as "C. E. Mansfield" until this morn ing when The Times made inquiries which led the poliee to change the name of the arresting officer to "o. W. Mansfield," a detective from No. b precinct. The latter officer, it is said, made the arrest. Station Sergt. W. H. Carlin, of No. 1, this morning declared that every consideration was given the young war veteran; that he was treated kindly and that "no harsh words were used." "I did not threaten him." Carlin said. "I merely told him to sit in the back room until the captain could talk with him. "wo' ex-service men, now under treatment in local Government hoe Ss, were here today complaining local restaurants would not honor Government meal tickets. Thinbm Timke Is Geed. "Of course we know that these tickets are orders on the United ptates Treasury and are as good as gold. but we have no way of meak iag the restaurant people accept them. "Should an e-ervice man tender oe of these requisition papers to a restaurant and have it refused, It wouMd appear to me Ijiat he has done all that is necessary and that the restaurant would have no cause to nake complaint against him."

The government has adopted a new trust policy toward business mergers, or so-called small "trusts," to speed up economic recovery, and to enable American business to combat foreign trade competition, It became known today. The President and his cabinet, es Decially those members who are the recognised business spokesmen of the administration, have decided to give a free hand to business, in merger plans already perfected or contemplated, unless such combinations run counter to the anti-trust laws. Recent mergers among big pro ducers of oil, leather, iron, steel, to bucco, and other leading commodities, and combinations that are proposed. have the approval of the government, officials said today, because nothing has been disclosed to show that the oombinations are in restraint of trade. The prime need in American indus- I try today, officials declared, is to lower costs of production, which are made possible through a coordination I of industrial facilities and methode. When such mergers can be effected, without having the effect of establish ing a monopoly in a given locality, or area, in a given product, the govern ment will register no objection. Officials insist that a liberal atti tude can be taken toward big business. without allowing violation of the pro. visions of the Sherman law, forbid ding unlawful combinations to throttle competition.

The fire was discovered shortly be fore 6 o'clock by Nelson A. Roberts, but before the firemen arrived the flames had partially destroyed the frame building. The firemen then1 concentrated their effort, in keeping1 the flames from spreading. GERMANY SEEKS SALVATION IN WORK, DR.

BALLOT Suffrage Movement Reported to Have Narrowed to Plan for Single Delegate. The District suffrage question. now before the Senate District cemmnittee, has narrowed down to the proposal Dontained in the Poindexter bill-that of electing a District delegate to the House of Representatives. Inquiry today reveals that the mem bers of the District committee are averse to considering the larger pro posal contained in the Capper bill. which would permit the District to slect its own board of commissioners, a public utilities commission and a board of education. There is a ininority in the commit tee, led by Senator Wesley Jones of Washington, which believes the entire suffrage question should be left to the initiative of the House, particularly as the specific proposal under consid eration, that of electing a delegate to the lower' chamber, is a distinctive House matter. The "antis" will have their inning before the Senate District committee next Monday. They have been allotted two hours by Senator Ball in which to state their case, and promise to pro iuce a great many charges of "undue political activities." etc., against those who are engaged in the present move ment for suffrage. At the hearing yesterday the wit nesses heard included Avery C. Marks, Jr., managing editor of The Times; Roy C. Claflin. Charles T. Clayton. president of the Columbia Heights Citizens' Association; W. W. Keeler, representing the labor unions of the :ity; Mrs. Mary Wright Johnson, of the Women's Federation Clubs, and Wayne B. Westiake. former president )f the Federation of Citizens' Asso ,iations. Frank B. Lord also made a plea for District suffrage. The hearing continued for more than two hours, and Senator Ball pre rented the anti-suffrages from inter uption, saying that they would be riven a hearing on Monday. The presentation of the suffrage :ase was made effectively and created a good impression upon the District Dommittee. 4.

N. s, sff Csrwspemdest. (Copyright. 191,i interational News ser vic.) The American delegatlion to the forthoosning conference on limitation of armaments will take a firm stand gainst any attempt to do ,away with the use of poison gas in warfare if i rollows the views of experts selecte' to advilse on that subject, it was lesrn ad from an unimpeachable source :o say. With almost limitless natural r' sources and thousands of skilled chemr ilta, the United States enjoys a pus Lion of peculiar advantage in the pro duction of poisonous gas upon a large sale. To prohibit the use of gas en tirely is practically impossible. since, any nation might conduct its expeti ments surreptitiously and spring the terrible surprise at the most unex pected moment. "Gas," said Brig. Gen. Amos A. Fries, chief of the Chemical Wartr.' Service of the United States army, and one of the chief technical advisers to the American delegatiion to the con ference on the limitation of armu ments, "is too deadly, too dangerous, too easy to develop and produce in secret for any nation to give it up." Mustard Gas from Indigo. For example, in the production of synthetic indigo, which in point of volume leads the dye industry, the, steps for nine-tenths of the way are perfectly harmless. At the final mu ment, however, the addition of one ingredient marks the difference be tween 'harmless indigo and the des'ty mustard gas, perhaps the most feared of all those developed in the world war. The dye industry, in which Germany secelled before the war, furnishes the means of producing dozens of deadly pgaes upon a moment's notice. General Fries believes the only limitations that can properly be placed upon "chemical warfare" are those which might also by imposed upon other forms of warfare. For example,' if it is declared to be contrary to the -principles of in ternational warfare to throw high explosive shells into cities from a istance of 100 miles. he believes it should likewise be deemed contrary to international practice to throw gas shells into that city. The American experts contend. however, that from the point of view of humanity, poison gas has all the advantage over plain lead bullets or high explosive. Notwith standing the vast amount of propa ganda spread against the use of gas during the world war, the casualty statistics demonstrate beyond all doubt, it is asserted, that gas is by far the most humane of the modern engines of destruction. The total American casualties in the World War were 253,217, of which 48.059 cases resulted in death. Of that total. 70,750 were gas cases, of which 1,400 resulted in death. Balets Found More Deadly. In other words, high explosive and bullets caused the deaths of approxi mately 25.4 per cent of those injured, while gas was fatal in only approx imately 2 per cent of the cases. Despite the campaign of publicity thrown out against the Germans for their more intelligent use of gas, the Allies gradually adopted that weapon and eventually developed it to a point of equality, if not superiority. This proves, experts assert, that gas will remain a factor in the problems of modern warfare, until some more deadly weapon is developed. The American technical adviser! also have formulated their views upon uch other "novel weapons" of war rare as radiocontrolled apparatus. germs. and epidemics and these views will be given due consileration by the American delegation. GOLD STAR FATHERS WILL PAY HONOR TO UNKNOWN Assistant Secretary of the Navy rheodore Rooeevelt has been asked to arrange for service. to be conducted tomorrow at the bier of the unknown soldier by the Gold Star Fathers' As sociation of Illinois: Colonel Rooeevelt announced toda" that the association will assemble on the eat step. of the Capitol at '1:15 tomorrow night.
