70 MILLIONS FOR CANCELLED CAPITALSHIPS Secretary Denbv’s Figures Do Net Include Salvage From Vessels. Special to Indiana Dally Times and Philadelphia Public Ledger. ■WASHINGTON, May 4—Cancellation and adjustment of Nary contracts in volved in the capital ship-scrapping pro gram decreed by the armaments confer ence will cost approximately $70,000,000, according to an estimate of the board of Navy officers recently appointed by Secretary Denby to recommend a method and procedure for destroying tha ships. The amount suggested by the report of the board, however, does not take Into consideration the value of the sal vage from the vessels scrapped and 's regarded by Navy Department officials as merely a preliminary estimate. Outright sale of the ships to be scrapped to the highest bidder is recom mended as the most feas'ble way of disposing of them. Other methods sug gested, if such a plan is not approved by the Navy Department, are: Sinking at sea, selling for destruction in a Navy yard or private shipyard, or de struction in a Navy yard by the Gov ernment. The findings of the naval board were made public by Secretary Denby with the expectation that the bill authorizing a scrapping program, * recently intro duced by Representative Butler of Pennsylvania, would be taken up in the House. The recommendations are signed by Rear Admirals Taylor, McVay, Pot ter, Robinson, Gregory and Cole. Washington Briefs WASHINGTON. May 4.—Now comes a semi-official American voice, that of Dr. ('. K. Seashore, psychologist of the Na tional Research Council of the United States, and denounces Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s proof* of spirit communication as ••trickery.’’ Dr. Seashore, who is one of the country's foremost psychologists, heard Sir Arthur lecture in Washington last Sunday night and saw his ectoplasmic photograph®. This is from a l' lblic statement issued by Dr. Seashore: “The psychologist listening to Sir Arthur Conan Doyle is naturally puzzled in the effort to explain the man. How can a man of his experience maintain the stand that be does in his lecture? This question is difficult to answer. The men tality exhibited is certainly different from that which produced Sherlock Holmes. The impression is rather pain ful. “A scientific demonstration of spirit communication other than through the channels of sense would be of more In terest and value thar any discovery of material science. But those who are best qualified to judge have found no con clusive evidence of such communication. "Many assert that they have such evi dence, but it is in a field saturated with trickery, and the type of proof employed does not ctmmend itself to the scientific thinker. Every type of evidence which Sir Arthur brings forth has been In vestigated and exposed as either the re sult of trickery, as in trick photography and sleight-offhand, or as normal though little known and wonderful, but natural manifestations of the human mind.” America's interest in property confis cated and nationalized by the Soviet gov ernment in Russia is comparatively small. An authority In Washington es t mates its total value at about $150,000,- 000, which is enormously less than the amounts other countries like Germany, France and Great Britain have at stake. Although the United States has not rec ognized the Soviet regime and may not do so a? soon as Europe does, our diplo matic authorities allow It to be under stood that American nationals will be advantaged automatically under any ar rangement concerning confiscated prop erty of foreigners.

White House let It be known today the i delay is not due to any lack of willing j timber. Many a lawyer who aspires to obtain one Is capable of earning ten time* the emoluments in private practice, but the toga continues to be eagerly sought by jurists throughout the laud. Bar associations throughout the Illinois sec tor that is Interested have recommended to the President a wide latitude ot choices. Who, after all, is the “best seller" in the United States? He is not, as many suspect, the popular novelist who put small-town life on the literary map, or even the Boswell who recently reflected Washington in a variety of mirrors. The “best seller” in the country, an authority opined today, is none other than the late Cardinal Gibbons. It is a.erred that the great prelate's "faith of our fathers" long since went into its two-millionth sale and is still in vigorous demand. Another great seller of which Cardinal Gibbons was the author Is “Gems.” an epitome of some of his famous sermons, the sales of which long since ran into the hundreds of thousands. Speaking of books, there comes a price less yarn that has London for its back ground. Not long ago a famous Ameri can publicist was put up for guest priv ileges in the Athenaeum. Great Britain's most exclusive club. T'nless you can manded a brigade at Waterloo or de signed St. Paul’s Cathedral, or won a new segment of the earth for the empire, or wrote “Paradise Lost," your chances of joining the Athenaeum are slender. Even to get in as a guest means that a man has to be something. The Ameri can asked his a British scholar of note, how a humble Yankee like him self happened to obtain a guest card. “Mr. ,” was the reply, “you once told me you were the author of the ‘Gold I’lank’ in the Republican national plat form of 1596. I put that on the applica tion and *he committee passed you. They think its a novel." Mrs. Isetta Jewell Brown, who is mak ing a determined fight for the toga now worn by Senator Swanson of Virginia, was the official “peach" of the Demo cratic national convention at San Fran cisco in 1020. She seconded the nomi nation of John W. Davis of West Vir ginia for President. When Mrs. Brown mounted the platform to speak, a be witching figure in a white tailored cos tume. the convention band struck up “Oh. You Beautiful Doll.” Fifteen thou sand voices took up the refrain ami sang it over and over again to the band's ac companiment, resulting in a demonstra tion that threatened to'stampede the con vention for Mrs. Brown instead of for her candidate. At one time a Washing ton stock company actress and much ad mired by Mr. and Mrs. Woodrow Wilson when playing here during the first Wil son Administration, she is the widow of a former member of Congress.

The electric vacuum cleaner, wash ing machine, dish washer, the many table appliances— each one of them does away with an immense amount of toil and in the home where they are all used, house work is practically nil. And, there’s a saving in time —in temper—in energy—in pretty hands—and in money—which makes the cost of electrical servants seem trivial. And they are so easy to own!
