SUGAR BILL TO BE UP AGAIN Another Effort to Be Made to Get Action on Fed eral Control Washington, Dec. 12.—Another effort to hasten Senate action on the bill continuing federal control of sugar next year was to be made to-day. A movement in this direc tion was defeated yesterday when the Senate defeated a motion to lay aside the railroad bill temporarily. There was no partisan alignment on the vote' of 27 to 32 by which Senator McNary's motion was de feated. Advocates of sugar legis lation conceded importance or the railroad bill but contended that im mediate action was necessary to re lieve the sugar shortage. Senator McNary declared the bill could be passed in two hours, but disposition of his motion led to debate on many Does a dry cough keep you awake?

HARRISBURG TELEGRAPH CALL YATES IN DETZER TRIAL Military Prisoner Expected to Testify Today Against Army Officer f I New York, Dec. 12.—Private Fred j M. Yates, riow a military prisoner, was expected to take the stand to day for the prosecution in the court martial against Captain Karl W. Detzer, charged with brutality to | prisoners in France. \ On several occasions Detzer stood [ by with a pistol in one hand and a ! blackjack in the other while his ser ' B ea nts "beat up" a man in his , custody, according to testimony by ' H ' , Lacey ' of Indianapolis. , one of the principal witnesses for the ; prosecution. ! Lacey, an ex-soldier, admitted he j had escaped from Captain Detzer, former commander of the 30Stli military police company, after he had been arrested by him on a street ",.^ e Mans for being absent with thnt 1 'i defense *brought out tton t l\ BO had left his organiza tion in this country before it h-iH sailed for France and that in lf14 he had been accused of deserting from the Sixth Cavalry. Lacey Testifies Lacey testified that he had first met Detzer when he had - ome out of a cafe with Private Yates ~" e Baid . Detzer had challenged y lacke d passes, but that Yates had pretended he was taking him to the provost Marshal's office after having found him in the railroad yards where Government property was lying in freight cars. Dacey said Detzer ordered them to come along with him, but that nfler they had gone a short distance, Yates dropped his hand to his revolver, and "told the captain to beat it." Detzer did, according to Lacey, and he and Yates fled, but were later rearrested. Lacey testified that on belnff brought before Detzer again he had received rough treatment fro-.n him and his two sergeants, IT. 8. Madden and Frank L. Hoyt. He asserted that once Detzer had ordered his sergeants to take him out, give him a chance to run and if he didn't make him, shoot and "waste no bul lets.' He said he had been beaten a dozen times, on seven occasions before Detzer, who he said stood by with a pistol in one hand and a blackpack in the other. In addition, Lacey said Detzer had made him sit on a bench for five days without sleep. If he dozed off, ho said, he was grabbed by the hair and pulled to his feet. He added that he had been made to sign false statements after he had "been led to believe he would be punished by death" if he disobeyed. Denies Charges In cross-examining Lacey, Lieu, tenant Thomas L. Ileffernan, defen-ie counsel, who at the opening of the trial declared the defendant had in curred the wrath of many "hard characters" while abroad .asked the witness if he did not know of "talk of 'getting' Captain Detzer." He followed this with another Question as to whether it was not true he had agreed "with others to get to gether on one story." To both ques tions Lacey replied in the negative. Before calling Lacey, the prose cution put on two new witnesses, Louis Schmitt, of Long Island City, and Glen Burrell, of Bedford, lowa.' Schmitt testified that after he had been brought into Detzer's office, ho saw Detzer catch Marcello Gonzales, another prisoner, smoking a cigaret and ordered him "to eat the thing." Schmitt said he left the room and did not see whether Gonzales obeyed. Schmitt admitted that he had served as a "stool pigeon or rat" for Detzer; that he had "squealed" on acquaintances absent without leave and that he would "trap uo" anyone who gave htm "a dirty deal." He added that ho would not "do It per- sonally, but would let the law take | its course." He denied that hA was "out to get | Detzer," but admitted that he was I bitter because of an insulting re- j mark he alleged Detzer had mude concerning his mother.
