Wllasa Weolwine, tn a dugout near the Argonne In October. 1913, was contained in a letter which Senator Watson of Georgia today handed Senator Brandegee of 0on necticut, chairman of the comittee investigating "the Watson charges." This Is the third different killing of one of his men that is charged against Ople. who was formerly a majo In command of a battalion of the 118th infantry. Ople has already denied the other two charges. The third is made by Lemuel O. Smith, of Marion, Va., a former ser geant of Company M, of Opie's bat talion. Smith said, he was decorated by the French and the American governments. "I was commanding a detail com posed of Privates 'Ted Enison, Lee ColUns and William Askew bringing In four prisoners when we heard a shot in a dugout." wrote Smith. '"We entered and found William Woolwine. Ople's orderly, lying dead. The room was still full of smoke of the gunan Ople was looking at the body. Sto u he had killed Woolwine and ordered us to carry the body out." Watson demanded today, that Smith and the three other privates whom he, named be summoned as witnessees.

ON RATES Senator Will Contest Effort to Defeat His Amsendment For States. eleseaaUt wews entee. Any attempt to choke off the Capper amendment to the transportation act by which the rate guarantee sectioa of the act would be eliminated and intra-state rate-making powers would be restored to the States, will be met with a hot tight in the Senate. This was the romise made today by Senator Cp*of Kansas. In corn. menting on the statement of Senator LaFolette of Wisconsin, that railroad interests were trying to "call off" the farmers of the country from their opposition to the act as it stands. "When I first offered the amend ment to the act It seemed to have little chance of passage," said Capper. 'But sentiment has grown strongly In favor of it until the farmers and the State commissions are almost solidly behind It and the railroads are concentrating all their forces to beat i et i will pass. The big fight will to get It out of committee. But we do not Intend to let up on It until we get some sort of satisfactlon." Capper said he was pumied by the action ascribed by La oulette to repro sentatives of the National Grange and the National Association of Farm Bureaus, who were reported to have agreed with the railroad representa tives at a secret meeting' held in Washington, to join the railroads in a program of legislation. "These farmer representatives may, have been misled. but whatever their motives, I am certain the formers will never back any such action as is ascribed to them. The fanners of the country are a unit in detmanding legislation that will Insure lower freight rates. fI think at the bearings bere the Senate Interstate Commerce Com mittee we have made out a clear case to prove that the Interstate Osmmero Commission exceeded its powers in fixing high rates and taking over the powers exercised by the States. "The country simply demands a eae from present conditions and the ge must come." CO-EDS ON TRAIL OF GRID HERO'S FIRST CAHESS Syracuse University All Upset Over Youth Who Never Felt Thrill of Osculation. SYRACUSE. N. Y.. Dec. 2.-A small army of Syracuse University co-eds today are esatped on the trail of Frank Culver. of Toledo. Oilo. cap tain-elect of the 1922 Orange football team, hero of the past season and one of the most popular-In male ck'le students at Syracuse University. How come? Culver proudly boasts that he has never, never sipped nectar from the lips of fair feminity. And, he adds. neither has he ever been kissed In turn. All of which constitute a fair chal lenge, aver scores of Syracuse c04(15. and intend to see that Culv as unkissedistinction fades pronto! Culver confesses that he isn't ex actly a womanhater, but he does think that "draggin' women around at a dance" is a mighty fine way to waste time. 'Culver's college record proves that he has the courage of his convto tions, for In his three years at Syra cuse he has had one "date." And that was forced upon him. A sorority telephoned his fraternity to send up a couple of freshmen for a dance. Culver was one of the elected. He had enough; it was his first and final social engagement in sorority cir cles. "He just can't see 'em." That's the way his frat brothers term It. "When we have a dance," they saty, "Cul will work with us diligently to decorate and get things ready, but when It comes to the dance itself he thtdo hie bads lounge l11rs' e drinkers,' and 'cake eaters.'
