With a small escort the President
drove from the railway station to

Accompanying the President were

dressing to go out, when I was
notified that the truck had been
stolen from in front of my shop,
where I left it about 2\ o’clock
that afternoon.
"I went over there in my sedan,

me under arrest.”

“I don’t know. He doesn’t live
in that neighborhood."
“Pretty smart boy to locate the
owner of an abandoned machine
so quickly. You should have
brought him in “here as a witness.
You must have been right busy to
let your truck be stolen from in
front of your shop and not know
it until some one told you after
you got home.”

—I was out in Virginia.’’’
“What time did you get back
from Virginia?”

I went right home and changed

Railways Will Bear Expense
of Experiment on Frozen
Platte River.
By lateraational Mews Service.
Plans for the bombardment, from
army airplanes, of ice jams in the
Platte river in Wyoming and Ne
braska were being made today by
Gen. Mason Patrick, chief of Air
Service, it was learned at the War
If the experiment is successful it
will mean a saving of thousands of
dollars to railroad companies oper
ating in that territory, which suffer
a large loss each year from the
damage caused by the huge blocks
of ice piling up in the Platte river
and its tributaries.
The expense of the undertaking
will be borne principally by the
Union Pacific Railroad Companies,
it was said. The main lines of this
company run directly! through that
territory, where the 1 ice jams are
the heaviest, and officials of the
company declare there is grave dan
ger that traffic will be completely
tied up unless some system is de
vised to break up the huge piles of
ice which threaten every bridge and
trestle over the Platte.
Trestles Are Threatened.
Bridges and trestles are often
completely destroyed by the ice
jams, officials say, and this year
extremely cold weather in the North
west has resulted in more serious
damage than ever before. Both the
Platte and Missouri rivers are com
pletely frozen over at the present
time, and a sudden change in the
weather will cause the ice to crack
and then the blocks, moving with
the stream, will pile up and cause
uhtold damage to the railroad
The request for the use of the
army airplanes was made to the
War Department by Senator War
ren of Wyoming, at the request of
railroad officials. Secretary of War
Weeks was willing to authorize use
of the planes if provision was made
for payment of the expenses oc
curred in the project. Railroad offi
cials agreed to pay the expenses and
Secretary Weeks immediately >gave
orders to General Patrick to plan
the bombing of the ice packs.
Bombers to Be Used.
The standard type of Martin
bomber will be used, It was said by
Air Service officials, and a flying
base probably will be established at
Fort Riley, Kan. The planes will
be flown to Fort Riley from the
permanent base at Langley Field. It
is considered probable that the ma
chines will be kept at Fort Riley
for some time after the bombing of
the blockades in the event of an
other emergency.
War Department officials pointed
out that aviators can operate over
the entire territory menaced by the
ice packs from Fort Riley, owing to
the long flying range of the Martin
bomber. Provision will be made,
however, for emergency landing
fields as a precautionary measure.

Alleged Refusal of Waters to
Take Over Prince Georges
Books “Gossip.”
Olive branches, wlgto flags, and
honeyed words passed with great
frequency in Prince Georges county,
Maryland, today, and what gave
promise at being a first-class po
litical row has now simmered down
to nothing more than a gentle near
“All about nothing,” was the
rumor yesterday that County Treas
urer-elect George W. Waters, of
Laurel, Md.. and Thomas E. Bur
gess. present county treasurer, of
Hyattsville, had come to the point
where a public airing was threat
ened for a political dispute.
The furore was about Waters*
alleged refusal to take over the of
fice of county treasurer until an
audit had been made of Burgess’
books. “Mere idle gossip. I have
nothing to do with Burgess* books.
They are turned over to the county
commissioners when his term ex
pires, and I get the books from
them,” declared Mr. Waters today.
At the same time Mr. Burgess
came to the fore with a stiff denial
that he was a poor bookkeeper and
that the affairs of his office were tn
a muddled condition.
“A saturnalia of false intimations.
My books are In good shape. " I’ll
welcome an audit any time,” Mr.
Burgess said.
And the thriving little town of
Hyattsville has again resumed its
air of nonchalance —and air that was
threatened with extinction pending
the outcome of the difficulty. “All
ovir nothing at all,” Prince
Georgians say.
