Accepts Condition That Ger
man Delegates be Barred
From Further Discussions
“Painful Surprise” is Ex
pressed in Note Sent to
Allied Governments
GENOA. ApriE 21 (By The Asso
ciated Press).—Both the Germain
nnd the Russians today submitted
their replies to the allies’ demands.
The German reply accepts the al
lied proposal that the Germans take:
no further part In the negotiations
between the allies and the Russians
hut the reply does not touch on the
effectiveness of the Russo-German
L treaty.
The Russian answer accepts the
B^ftfoposai as to payment of Russian
^^iebts and payment for property de
stroyed providing the Russian gov
ernment is recognised by the allies
and is given adequate financial assis
i While the Soviet reply apparently
accepts practically all of the de
mands the details of working out
the plan and the amount the- Rus
sians may expect in loans to restore
their country admittedly presents a
difficult problem without any cer
tainty that it can be reived and thus
complete the perliminaries necissi-y
to recognition.
— > < .. . . a It.,. n n efitil S *
SI relating to the restoration of nation
11 alized property of foreigners says:
1 "The Russian government would
I be willing to restore to its former
; owners, the use of property nation
' alized or withheld, or where this Is
impossible, then to satisfy the just
claims of former owners.”
The allied proposals on finances
to which the Russians replied today
were textually as follows:
"Section . 1—The creditor allied
government represented at Genoa
cannot admit any liability regarding
the claims advanced by the soviet
Section 2—In view of the serious
economic condition of Russia,
creditor governments are pre
pared to write down the war
debt owing to them by Russia, by
a percentage to be determined later;
and tlie countries represented at Ge
noa would lpe prepared to consider
not only the postponement of pay
ments of interests upon financial
claims, but also the remission of
some part of the arrears of interest
ha ar postponed interest. , - ,
Section »-*-*« must bo definitely
H^Mreid. however, that there can be
^^^io allowance made to the soviet
i government ugainstf First, either
debts and financial obligations due
to foreigu natipna|s;, or. .second, the
light of such nationals, regarding
the return of their property and
compensation for damage or loss ill
respect thereof."
As justifying their contentions that
. the allies could not as a matter of
right demand compensation for
property the Russians cite the abil
ity of slavery in the United States
when neither Americans nor foreign
era were compensated.
L Get German Reply
4 __ . ..4 in., rpu. taan.
UrialVA, A^III v •-'J -
• r ated Press)—The German reply to
the allied ultimatum accepts the
condition that the German dele
gates be barred from participating
in further discussion of the Russian
conference by the Genoa conference
the Russo-Gerjnan treaty signed at
Rapallo being allowed to ttand.
Arrangements have been made to
i present the note to Premier Pacta
of Italy, president of the conference,
and also as the first signer of the
. protest received by the Germans.
The German note is no longer than
that from the allies, and begins by
acknowledging "with painful sur
prise” the protest received, which
is considered unreserved. The note
then repeats whac Dr. Rathenau.
3erman foreign minister, has stated
an several occasions that negotiations
for the conclusion of the liusso-Ger
■ man treaty had begun long ago.
f ^ ere known to have been ir. progress
|^Ay all the European governments
^^and had be%n suspended out of de
W ference to the conference.
But the exclusion of Germany
from the negotiations held by the
allies with the Russians, at \ ilia ue
Albertis. gave to the German dele
gation the impression that the allies
were trying to conclude arrange
ments with the soviet government
without German partic pation. per
haps to Germany's detriment. At a
certain moment, perhaps through
misunderstandings, the German del
“gatlons received the impression
that the allies were ahout to con
,-lude an agreement with the Rus
liens: therefore the Russo-German
negotiations were resumed and re
sulted In the signing of the treaty
it Hapallo, Easter Sunday.
The German delegation believes,
this treaty does not violate the spirit
of the conference, indeed, con
tributes to Its supreme aim. the pa
cification of the world and the re
construction of Europe. .
The note admits that after the
conclusion of this treaty the Ger
man delegation haa no reason to par
ticipate in the work of the first com
mission. dealing with Russian affairs
nit says it will willingly participate
it the other work, dealing with Eu
ropean and German interests.

Head of School Board Does
Not Deny He Will Seek
John K. Sheehy for mayor on the
Democratic ticket.
This is the rumor that has been
going the rounds in political circles
for some days past. Mr. Sheehy
when questioned about the report
said that he had heard the reports
and added that he had been urged
by his friends to run. He also inti
mated that he was considering en
tering the race.
Politics In the Democratic pot
have become so hot that they
threaten to boil over at any time,
and when this takes place it is like
ly that somo definite mention will be
made concerning the candidate for
mayor and also for the aldermen,
who will run in the primaries next
September. Up to the present time
tho names of three leading Demo
crats have been mentioned In the
race for the executive head or the
sity. They are:
Former Mayor Frank Dorsey. Mr.
Dorsey has been slated by his
friends for a comeback in the next
election, many holding that if he
will allow his name to appear on
the ballot as a candidate for mayor
be will be elected. As for Mr. Dor
sey. himself, he refuses to have any
thing to sav and is seemingly satis
fied to stand by his guns and watch
the pot boil. , . ,
Ever since the election last fall,
there has been a feeling among cer
tain leading Democrats that the
candidate of the hour would be Dr.
John V. Smith. It is held that Dr.
Smith would make an ideal candi
date and by his past work for the
party has won its support. How
ever, but little has been heard from
the Smith snpporters recently and
this is held to mean that his can
didacy is not growing to any great
tXThe candidacy of Mr. Sheehy at
the present time seems to be the
center of irtterest and his name is
mentioned freely In relation to the
office of mayor. For a number of
years Mr. Sheehy has been president
of the Board of Education and has
handled this important city work
with a great deal of consideration.
Should Mr. Sheehy become a candi
date for mayor it is conceded that
he would leceive the entire support
of Countv Clerk Bernard M. Gan
ron, and this fact alone would mean
that he would have the undivided
support of Gannon's friends in tha

but the fact that many of the cap
tains of committee’s working in the
campaign to raise the quota of tor

present indications It i» likely that
many of the reports will not be made
until after the first of next week.
The closing of the campaign to

Freeholders Will Wait for Lo
cal Aldermen to Pass An
other Resolution
Owing to an error, in the drawing
of the resolution by-the Perth Amboy
aldermen requesting the county to
turn Amboy avenue-over to the city
that the Improvement of that street
might be accomplished, the freehold
ers were compelled at their meet
ing yesterday to defer action on the
matter.. . .. ,' • i .'
Under the agreement between the
governing officials, the county1 was
to return that portion from Myrtle
street to a point just north of Ins
lee street back to the city and re
tain the balance under county con
trol so that proper repairs could
i be made during the period of time
that the new portion of the road is
being cut through, filled and brought
to grade..
The resolution adopted by. the
council and which was before the
freeholders for consideration, re
quested the return of the entire
road, though the- county officials
pointed out that in the event the
request was complied with they
would be unable to care for. the
emergency repairs of the detour
while the construction is under way.
Members of the board are desir
ous of getting the work under way
at the earliest possible date, as they
feel the improvement is probably one
of the most important ones under
the year's program.- and for whlcii
thev have appropriated $40,000, but
as the city authorities have declar
ed themselves to be in no position
to provide for temporary repairs,
and .until this 4<t*il. la settled it
was thought best to hold up the
matter for another week so that a
complete understanding might be ar
rived at.

IJARRISBURG, April 21:—The
cockroach is a radio "fan” and com
municates by wireless with his
brothers and sisters. Howard Zim
merman. sergeant major of the
Fifty-flfth Infantry Brigade. Head
quarters Company, believes and
seeks to prove by experiment, the
results of which were made public
here today. ,. . _ .
The experiments, he said, had been
under way for a year and are the re
sult of investigations begun in a bus
infested barracks in Luxemberg.
“At that time we were having
night school and were working on
the shortest possible wave length,
getting as low as one-fourth of a
meter,” he explained. “Radio sets
were located three feet apart on a
glass top table.
“One night everything was work
ing perfectly when suddenly our
tubes began to act queerly. By the
dickering light of a candle we nnally
located ‘Mr. Cockroach' sitting in the
space between the receiving and
submitting apparatus. We removed
him and to our surprise the appar
atus became normal. This led us to
believe he was capable of making
electric power."
The sergeant declared one insect
radios to another and this belief is
supported by his experiment.
"I have found in my experimental
work that a cockroach has a wave
length of between one-half inch and
one inch with very low frequency.”

Many Injured In Strange
Accident At Plant Of
General Geramics Co.
The death toll of the accident at the plant of the Gen
eral Ceramics Company near Metuchen yesterday afternoon
reached two last night, when the second man. who was in
jured in the cave-in of a kiln under construction, died. There
are still four men in the Perth Amboy City Hospital. The
condition of two of these men was said to he not serious at
the hospital this morning- Two other men, taken to the
hospital following the accident, were discharged and allow
ed to return to their homes yesterday afternoon.
Although Coroner Arthur K. Hillpot of Metuchen, con
ducted a probe of the accident this morning and officials ol,
the ceramics company have investigated the matter no solu
lion of the cause of the cave-in has been found. Plant offi
cials were unwilling to give out any information this morn
ing as to the accident, but Roy Minton, the superintendent,
emphatically denied that any men had quit the job last week
owing to their fear of the kiln collapsing. These five men
who left the job, Superintendent Minton said, did so in order
to take jobs in South Amboy.
Life Probably Saved by Quick
Action of Local Man at
Ceramics Plant
Excise Commissioner Charles Dor- j
rian, 4U1 Gordon street, one of those,
to escape serious injury when an
arch In a new kiln being erected at
the plant of the General Ceramics
Company at Metuchen collapsed
yesterday afternoon, told the fol
lowing story to an Evening News re
ported todav. Mr. Dorrian was at,
work in the kiln when the arch ;
fell and as yet can give no explana
tion as to why he escaped serious
According to Mr. Dorrian. the
men were working on a scaffold j
built up under the arch about ten 1
1 feet from the floor of the kiln. The
men were pointing up the work, and
i in order to do this, were sitting on
, the scaffold, a number on each side
i back to back. They were in such a
. position that any one of the men
j could touch each other by extend
ing their hands.
Without any warning what ever,
the arch gave way and came crasli
! ing down on their heads. Mr. Por
irian saw a huge piece of the heavy'
' brick and mortar give wav and plac
ing his hands on top of his head.
I leaned over to one side. He is of
the opinion that this piece of masoff
work struck him a glancing blow.
The weight of the falling arch
! broke the scaffold and men and
bricks plunged to the bottom of the
I pit. or floor of the kiln. AU of the
i men who were seriously injured or
I have died were buried under the
fallen mass, not even a leg or arm
being visible, according to Mr. Dor
rian, although their groans could be
heard coming from under the mass
of debrisu
Mr. Dorrian was pinned down by
the mass and was rescued by Charles
Peterson, of Second street, wno al
though working on the scaffold at
the time was uninjured and aided in
rescuing the other men. "The bot
tom seemed to fall out of the sky."
said Mr. Dorrian in speaking of his
feelings when the arch gave way.
| When questioned concerning the
! cause of the accident he said that it
l was not due to poor workmanship
i as the workmanship was perfect.
Mr. Dorrian estimated that four
| -.ons of brick and mortar, had fall
| . n w hen the arch collapsed. The
! arch was constructed of special
wedge shaped brick, which were
.ifcoiit 9x9xJ’;x3 inches.
Mr. Dorrian said that while he
was at the hospital having his
wounds examined, a laborer em
ployed on the job. who he thought
j was John JJogan of Fords, told him
that he w-as on top of the arch when
it gave wav. and plunged to the bot
tom of the kiln with the brick and
mortar. He waa not seriously in
