Second Member of ‘Best Minds’
Enters ‘Kitchen Conference’
With President-Elect.
MARION, Ohio, Dec. 11.—An earnest
argument against entering the League of
Nations was being made to President
elect Harding today by Col. George
Harvey, an outspoken irreconcilable.
HarTey, as the second of the “best
Binds" called here, was trying to offoet
the case which Charles E. Hughes is
believed to have outlined to Harding In
favor of American participation in the
league, provided proper safeguards can
be secured.
Secrecy has shrouded the "kitchen
conferences" thus far. Senator Harding
prefers that nothing be given out abont
visitors until they have arrived in Ma
rion. believing it would be unseemly to
make advance announcement as to the
identity of hta advisers.
lVith the departure of Hughes, the be
lief that Senator Harding will ask him
to become Secretary of State, grew among
those closest to the President-elect. Sow.
quarters regarded It as virtually certain
the first Cabinet tender will go to the
man who forsook the Supreme Court
bench to make the Republican presl
dentlal race four years ago. One report
was that the tender was actually made
during yesterday s interview, but there
was no authoritative statement of con

In a most matter of fact way. A casual
visitor might roam around the deserted
yard today without dreaming he was
Dear the spot where the destiny of the
Nation for the next four years is being
shaped. But near the backroom of Hard
ing's headquarters, he might see through
the window two men facing each other
across a small desk. One of imposing
stature* sat in bis chair chewing a thin,
black stogie and listening passively.
Opposite. Col. George Harvey, thin and
wiry, bends forward, talking earnestly.
There is no one around, the desk is
littered like that of a careless editor.
There are no Cowers, attaches, door at
tendants. big wall mirrors or other trim
mings, supposed to go with meetings of
such import. Outside in the front office,
a couple of clerks are sorting mall and
the click of a typewriter is audible. In
the barren yard, where thousands gath
ered during the campaign, three secret
service men are leaning idly against the
deserted buckeye tree. The quiet is in
terrupted by a noise in the back yard.
But it is only Mrs. Harding trying to
break into the side door of her husband s

Egg Photo Infringer
Gets Off Cheaply
A picture of a basket of eggs caused
all the trouble.
Frank McGrann, raiser of fine poul
try at Lancaster, Pa., said that he
had some of his very best eggs posed
especially for the photograph and
j then had the print copyrighted so he
i could enjoy the exclusive use of It
j in advertising in the poultry journals
and such. But he had not enjoyed
| it long until he not'ced that H. V.
| Tormoblen of Portland, Ind., was us
ing a like cut In his advertisements
j of fine eggs laid by prize Hoosler
fowls, McGrann said.
Tormohlen refused to stop using
the picture, McGrann said, so he filed
suit in Federal Court for an injunc
tion and damages.
Judge Anderson in a final decree,
entered today perpetually enjoined
' Tormohlen or anybody else from us

but assessed no damages.

Q, What are the results ol your mis
sion ?
| A. Briefly summed up, the results of
; my mission to soviet Russia consist of
I the concession of 400,(H.0 square miles of
I territory in return for which Russia

America—in spite of the Wilson invasion
i of Murmank and Siberia—her only friend
and even though England signs (an
agreement resuming trade) Russia will
give the bulk of her orders to us. She
declares, however, that she will not beg
on our doorstep much longer.
Q. What la Britain's prerent attitude?
Will she recogDlxe the soviets?
A. Russia expects England to sign any
day. My contracts were at first ridi
culed In England, then they caused s
panic. British labor wis circularized
with my interviews and threats were
made that Britain's workmen will "lay
down their tools” unless the British gov
ernment signs.
Q. What are your future plans?
A. I expect American manufacturers
and labor organizations to carry my fight
for trade relations to Congress. I have
blazed the trail. Success will meAn the
return to prosperity of 150,000,000 Uu
sians bereft of all for seven years and
i willing to work for u*. Europe will ron
jtlnue to fight and starve and seek our
i charity until her granary—Russia—is re.
opened. Restoration of trade relations
with Russia will do more than the League
of Nations could ever do. It mean* a
putting a stop to quarreling and going
back to work.
Q. Have British financiers obtained
concessions from soviet Russia ?
A. No. British financiers hare not ob
tained eonces* ons.

cerning Siberia?

Russians get locomotives, Russia 1* de- !

Q. How did Lenine and Trotzky strike
A. Lenine has an intensive, active mind.
He la a scholar. He laughs at a good

Trotzky is a wonderful executive and
organizer, though not a military genius.
The military operations aye directed by
Generals Brusiloff, Kuropatklu and
others who were prominent in the general
staff of the Czarist regime.
The government of soviet Russia is not
a Jewish regime. Only three prominent
Jews are among its members —Trotzky,
Ivameneff aud Lltvlnoff. (The three men
are war minister, minister of ways and
communications, and assistant foreign
minister, respectively.)
I I did business with political, legal,
taghulcal, financial and export and im
i port councils, totaling sixty officials. All
lof them are pure Russians, and many
formerly belonged to the aristocracy.
I believe the fire of communism is
rapidly burning itself out.

Richmond Woman Claims
Body Found in Park.
Mrs. Wallace Howell of Richmond,
Ind., came to Indianapolis last night and
identified the body of a man found In
Riverside park Monday afternoon .is that
of her brother, Frederick Wright Jones,
40, of Frankfort, Ky.
While It was at first believed that
Jones had committed suicide because ho
had an empty bottle aud a paper cup
near him, and also because of the out
of the way place that the body was found
and the lack of Identification cards aud
letters, it was positively stated by Dr.
George R. Christian, deputy coroner, who
performed the autopsy, that it was not a
case of suicide. Oedema of the lungs is
given as the cause of death on the cor
oner'* official records.
Jones was the manager*Df a dry clean
ing establishment at Frankfort and on
Thanksgiving day he visited in Rich
mond, at his lister's home, apparently In
good health.
Coroner Robinson started an investlga-'
tion into the case today to determine why
'Jones was In the lonely part of the park
near the bear pits. The coroner stated
the bottle found near Jones had con
tained ammonia.
The body will be taken to Richmond to
tlay and the funeral will be held in that
city. Jones la survived by his mother,
two sisters, Mrs. Howell and Mrs. Helen
Gilbert of Greenfield, and two brothers,
Logan Jones of Chicago and Charles
Jones of Washington.
