SOVIETS TURN DOWN FRENCH NOTE ON DEBTS British Proposal Accepted as Basis for Further Negotiation. SUGGEST ARBITRATION i GENOA, April 29.—Russia will reject the French terms for an agreement with the allies, but will consider the British terms acceptable as a basis for negotia tions. This decision was reached by the Rus sian delegation in a conference which continued until an early hour today. The allies intend to combine and co ordinate the French and British terme in one note which will be presented to the Russians before night. For the pur pose of doing this the sub-committee iu charge of drafting the note met today. The I-’reneh terms provide that if no 1 agreement can be reached on payment of Russia's debts, the soviets shall accept I the arbitration of a mixed commission appointed either by the Chief Justice of the United States Supreme Court, The | Hague tribunal or the Leugtte of Na tlons. The principal difference between the , French and British terms is that the French demand complete payment of war debts and return of property seized by the soviet from foreigners, whereas the British are willing to compromise on these points. When the notes ore com bined for presentation to Russia, they will ask seven categorical questions as the Russia's attitude so as to prevent further quibbling by the soviets and will then lay down the terms on which the allies propose to give assistance to Rus sia. On leaving the inditing of the Bolshevists early this morning George Tchltcherln, chief of the Russian delegation, said they had gone over both the British and French drafts. The British draft, he said “might be acceptable as a basis for I negotiations." When asked about the French draft, Tchitcherln gravely shook his head.

A BIT TOO LATE Night Watchman At tributes Sound to Torpedoes. Safecrackers blew the safe of the Campbell Oil Company, 2003 to 2007 Mad ison avenue, some time last night and ob tained only Sis. Two explosions were required to force open the doors. The robbery was discovered this morning. Employ sos the company said the robbers were probably after the heavy collections turned in by delivery men Friday, hut that this money had been sent to the bank. Checks which were contained in the safe were scattered over the floor. Police said the strong Lox was opened by experienced yeggmen. The first ex plosion blew open the heavy outer door and the second the strong inside door. LOT OF “SOI r" USED ON JOB. The force of the explosion was such that the combination was blown through a two-inch pine door, ripping a hole two feet long in the door. The combi nation was found wedged behind a book after it had gone, through the door. The safecrackers, before blowing the safe, cut into the knob of the combination, evidently Intending to pour the nitro glycerin there, but the knob broke off and the “soup" was poured in the cracks around the door. The office of the company is a block east of Madison avenue near the Penn sylvania Railroad. There is no residence nearer than 350 feet and the company does not employ a watchman. This is ihe third visit of safe crackers to the company's office in three years. Three years ago burglars battered the safe open and obtained money. Six months ago a safe was battered but not opened. r D. Campbell is president and gen eral manager of the company. That the burglars had no fear of be ing interrupted was evident. They did not take the trouble to muffle the sound of the explosion, as is usually done. A fuse, a short piece of gas pipe and a pocket knife with a newly broken blade were found near the safe. A small sledge hammer owned by the oil eompany and evidently used by the thieves was n’so on the table near the safe. D. N. Lowe, night watchman st the Indiana Elevator Company's building some distance south of the Campbell Oil Company's plant, said he heard the two explosions in tlie night, but thought they were torpedoes used by the railroad men as signals. Burglar Visits Blackwell Place The poolroom op- rated by Fred Black well, 1274 Roosevelt avenue, was reported to police as having been entered last night by breaking a glass in a side win dow.

HOOPESTON, lU.. April 29.—John C. Wyman, wealthy retired farmer and church elder, confessed today he betrayed Gertrude Hanna, former school teacher and choir singer, who was found murdered In the basement of the United Presbyterian parsonage here. "But I didn't kill her,” shouted Wyman. "Before God, I say I didn't." Wyman, 35 years of age and haggard after two days of constant quizzing, stuck to that story until dawn, when he was let go In custody of police. No charges have been lodged against the man. “We turned him loose with hounds on bis track," was the explanation of Charles N. Knox, sheriff of Vermillion County. ■ “I don't want to be turned loose,” Wyman begged. “I wouldn't think of going anywhere In Hoopeston without a policeman.” CiIVK WYMAN THIRD DKG RE E. 'Hie "third degree" was given Wyman throughout th' night by Sheriff Knox and John H. Lew man. State’s attorney. The examination was held in a dingy, stuffy room above the tire department station. "I met Gertrude," Wyman began, "when we a tended church together years ago. We wore friends even then. "But she went t > Chi ago to live, after which 1 met another woman whom 1 aft erward married. That was two years ago. Mrs. Wyman died since." Wyman sat on- t in his elmir as he t hl t.is story, leaning slightly forward .ted gave the appearance of being eager to answer whatever questions might o- put to him. “One Sunday Gertrude came back to Hoopeston. I met her nt a church and we took a long stroll i:t the country. “I confessed my love to her, hut she iold me to forget it. GOES TO LIVE yvrru iif.b folks. "It was shortly after this that 1 went to live with her folks. “I wanted to marry her, out she re fused. "We severed relations. “That's ajl I know. Umoro God 1 repeat I didn't kill the girl." Questioned os to bis whereabouts sln* - e April 1. many minor discrepancies ap peared in Wyman s story. The sheriff entered with Grace. sis ter. and W. T. Hanna, the girl's father. During the intensely dramatic scene which followed, Wyman kept his eyes glued on the floor. G.ace, a year or two younger than her dead sister, n school teacher, and quite attractive, pointed an accusing finger nt Wyman, said: "You diil If. After Gertrude pleaded and begged with you to marry her you— a pillar of the church —refused." The young school teacher raised her two clenched lists high above her head. “Please, if you killed nty sister, tell us,” she begged. “My mother Is dying at home.” Wyman repeated In a droning voice: "Before God I didn't." Grace and Hanna J>a7 been roused out of bed for the early morning Inquisition. They had returned In the later afternoon from the funeral of Gertrude. The murdi r. so the death of Gertrude Is called by the sheriff and State's nt torney, rivals th<> mystery plots weirdly (Continued ott Page Two.) from the hinding brass on steam pipes; a cup, taken from tiie cud of a fuse, and spring terminals taken from dry cell bnl teries." The variable condenser is an “alligator niouth" type. Avery clever method of adjustment was discovered by Mr. Steen bergen when he found that he had little material to use. He obtained a filler disk and placed a rod through it off center. By turning the rod, the disk is rotated and the distance between the plates of the coniletisor is varied. The loose-coupler which is used in the sot, lias contact points made from paper clips. The primary of the coupler is wound on a salt box, cylindrical in shape, and the secondary is wrapped on tln- shell of a dry. cell battery. The ground for the set is furnished by a water pipe in the bathroom. Mr. Steenbergen an I the oilier radio lings of the family, which includes them all. are enthusiastic over 111*' results ob tained from making the set iu accordance with the Daily Times instructions. He plans to build a regenerative set from the plans now running in the radio de partment. He l aid that tln* cost of making a set is negligible if one lias a litile mechan ical ability and utilizes materials which can he found around any home.
