TO JAPAN DENVER, Colo., June 24. (By Associated Press) The convention of the Amercan Federa tion of Labor today voted down a constitutional amendment designed to give women "equal rights and privileges of membership in the Union of their trade of industry." All affiliated unions, however, were urged not to discriminate against the woman wage earner and admit her to membershp. Efforts to wipe out the "color line" in labor or ganizations also failed. The convention took the stand that national and international unions could not be compelled to recognize negro workers, and that this was a matter to be adjusted by conference between the negro wage earners and the various organzations. ' Both topics were the subjects of long and stormy debates in which discrimination by certain unions against negroes and woman workers was bitterly denounced. The committee' report rejecting the constitutional amend ment to give women "industrial equality" defended the federation's stand on women in industry and cited efforts to get better wager, and working conditions for them. It declared that only a "few unions" were discriminating against women and for that reason disapproved the amendment and urged that "those international and national organisations which do not admit women to membership give early consideration for such ad mission." ...... The defeated constitutional amendment would have provided for the issuance of a separate charter by the federation to a woman's local without the consent of the union having jurisdiction over the particular trade. ' The negro question arose on the report of the committee on laws, which disapproved a resolution calling for the suspension of unions that descriminated against negro workers. The committee was upheld by overwhelming vote. lii'li'Vlnu In a f i mil tin tUow it l" win i tu t li wint hinIii' fur it 1 1 nMili.itt'il union tn wln uiil l !)

CAN'T G0I1UICT PRETTY IVOfMl e00.C0UTYLAr.1ETSIIETl CHICAGO, June 24. (By Associated Press) Mrs. Cora Isabella Orthwein was acquitted by a jury tonight at her trial on a charge of having murdered Herbert P. Ziegler. The jury reached its verdict after less than an hour's delibera tion. Mrs. Orthwein, when she heard it, thanked the judge and jurors and then fell back in her seat, apparently in a fainting condi tion. Later she was taken to the home of her sister, Mrs. Berha Clifford. "It's the same old story. You can't convict a woman of murder In Cook County if she is young and good looking," said Prosecutor Heth, after the verdict had been read.

Sims, as a result of the speech of the Admiral in London, June 7, in which he criticised Sinn Fein sympathizers in America. i In the reprimand Mr. Denby pointed out that once before the navy department had found it necessary to take similar action'against the officer for an address delivered in London in 1911, and referring to the text of that reprimand, added: "Your remarks on the occasion now under discussion, therefore, constitute a flagrant and de liberate disregard cf specific instructions." While the naval secretary was making public the reprimandt Admiral Sims was calling on President Harding at the White House. It was explained that the Admiral called to leave his card as is the custom when high naval officers return from a trip abroad, but that the President invited him to chat for a few minutes. Upon leaving the White House Admiral Sims, referring to the reprimand, said, I got what I deserved, the same old thing." He added that he regretted having caused the administration any inconvenience, but said that he now considered the incident closed. So far as rould b learned the reprimand was not mentioned , question confirms in rssential points the aforesaid press reports and during the Admiral's visit to the President.

KARR IS ELECTED HEAD OF KIWANIS CLUB NEXT TERM WASHINGTON, June 24. (By Associated Press) Criticism of the administra tion bill for refunding the ten billion dollar allied debt was voiced today in the Senate. Senator Ashurst, democrat, Arizona, protested against giving the secretary of the treasury authority to extend payments of interest. Sentor McKellar, democrat, Tenn essee, assailed provisions which he said would permit the secretary to "swap America's good credits for "worthiest German, Austrian or Turkish reparations bonds and Sena tor Smoot, republican, Utah, said "frankly" that the bill would confer "too much power on Secretary Mellon. The principal attack was made by Senator McKellar who said the provision authorizing the acceptance from debtor nations of their bonds or those of any other na tion, in the refunding process should be stricken from the bill. In reply Senator Smoot said that "no body but an insane man would trade Ameri can credits for reparation bonds of Germany and her allies. "If such an attempt were made," he added, "congress will stop it." The bill generally, he asserted, was necessary to give to the administration sufficient power "to clean up this situation." Introduction of the bill as drafted by the treasury does not mean that it will be re ported unchanged to the senate, Senator Smoot, who it a member of the finance com mittee, continued. The committee, he addei will not report the bill until further injuiry. I nl iii-l m nii'iiiN K. iiil. A-hnrm ntw im ami linn r..-. tn lniilil.itf imvtmrit. Thf tntrmt rharird. he .t.f.n.tl.
