WOOD REQUIRES MORE TIME TO COMPLETE JOB Will Stay in Philippines Six Months Before Taking School Post. Ppeelal to Indiana Pally Times a.vl Philadelphia Publio Ledger. WASHINGTON, May 17.—Maj. Gen. Leonard Wood finds he cannot relinquish the governor generalship of the Philip pines In September to become provost of the University of Pennsylvania without leaving undone very vital features of Philippine reorganization. Therefore he has asked the university trustees for an extension of time, to be not more than four months, with the expectation of tak ing the university post Jan. 1. Gen. Wood's decision was communi cated in a cablegram to Secretary Weeks, made public today and transmitted to Provost Harrison of the university, Sena tor Pepper and George W. Wickersham of the board of trustees of the university; J. Norman Henry of Philadelphia and A. B. Brunker of Chicago representing the Pennsylvania alumni. Beyond indicating It still was the de sire of President Harding that On. Wood remain in the islands until the re forms Inaugurated by the present ad ministration were well under way. Secre tary Weeks offered no comment on the communication. He made It plain the President looked on the question as one wholly for determination by Gen. Wocd and the university authorities. The gen eral belief in the War Department, how ever, was that Gen. Wood will stay In Manila another six months, donbtlesa with the understanding he will come to Philade'""iia Jan. 1. Motion to Dismiss • Mrs. Clara G. Carl SHELBYVILLE, Ind., May 17.—Argu ments to dismiss the murder charges against Mrs. Clara Gibson Carl, Indicted in connection with the deaths of her second husband and bis father, alleged to have died from food poisoning, will be made in the Shelby Circuit Court, some time the latter part of the week, probably Friday or Saturday. Attorneys for the accused woman alleges that the allegations against her are insufficient. She is to be placed on trial Monday of next week for the alleged murder of her husband, the charges having been vea ued here from Hancock County. BOOKNOTES “For contiguous opportunities of free dom In a land, lake-set and limitless, and incredibly near at hand, there is no rival nowadays to the Laurentians.” Thus T. Morris Longstreth on the Canadian wild erness which he has put Into a book. “The Laurentians: The Hills of the Habitant,” to be published by the Cen tury Company, May 26. “For scenery I choose their sisters, the Adirotidacks: and for peculiar animals I suppose Africa still leadssays Mr. Longstreth. but— “ Three hours' progress north from Montreal disclose* an unobstructed out path to the pc le. Further, three days’ search In Canada's finest library had not disclosed a single book describing this great wonderland of the Laurentian mountains. So It seemed an alluring thing to stick a notebook in my bip pocket and a duffle bag on my back and explore this terra non comftrtna. I took rare not to travel with the notebook in hand. I had no desire to tabulate all the places that a tourist should accomplish In order to say that he had done the thing with a clear conscience; neither did I desire that the natives should feel honor bound to perjure themselves for adver tisement's sake. But If I have journeyed skiphazardly, seen superficially and re ported but a part, yet I have not com mitted Munchausen therein. There was too much true delight, too much delicious mishap, to require the spice of unver aclty.” “At the Moment of Death’’ bids fair to come at a moment extremely propitious for itself.

Camille Flammanon la one of a con siderable group of prominent scientists who are, at this point of long and dis tinguished careers, Intently and passion ately Interested In the problems Involved In life after death. Those of ue who may be Inclined to scoff may do well to j recall that, whatever contrast M. Flam- ! marlon’s present ardor may offer to the “cold scientific spirit,” his achievements as a scientist are absolutely beyond ques tion. His contributions to astronomy belong to the permanent history'of that science. Incidentally, we hear that of the first volume, entitled “Death and Its Mys tery,” devoted to proving by means of an inconceivable number of carefully re corded psychic phenomena that the soul We Believe in Indianapolis Work Gloves Indianapolis boasts of the largest individ ual glove factory in the world. This city’s production of canvas, jersey and leather re-inforced work gloves would place over forty pairs on the hands of every man, woman and child in the city each year. In making these gloves one and one-half million yards of Canton flannel, one and three-fourths million yards of knit goods, two hundred and sixty million yards of thread and one million square feet of leather are used each year. Five hundred people are employed in this industry and 78,000 square feet of floor space , are used. Each year 185 freight cars leave this city laden with cotton gloves destined for all points in the United States and most of the civilised countries of the world.

Sydney Greenble’s “The Pacific Tri angle”. has been adopted as a Chautau que text, and will be nsed thia season In its summer studies. The Century Company Is preparing a special edltlbn for this purpose. A book to come from the Century Com pany in May Is "Food Products from Afar.” E. H. S. Bailey and H. S. Bailey, the authors, are both well-known food spe cialists, but their book Is said to be deliberately popular and entertaining, In no sense a text, but containing a thou- ! sand romantic, strange, interesting and thought-provoking facts about opr exotic foods. Headers will be regaled with one fact calculated to stagger the imagination, we are told: America Imports for her Im migrants about eight million pounds of garlic every year. (No wonder we are enthusiastic about “Americanization!”) To pick out one fact, and that “a sta tistic,” Is not fair, since the Century Company declares this is probably at I once the most Inclusive and Informal book about our Imported foods ever writ ten. Joseph Hergeshelmer Is the subject of INDIANA DAILY TIMES. the May Bookman's "Literary Spotlight.” Among other things, we learn that: “One of Hergeshelmer's weaknesses Is of speaking before women’s clubs. He la in great demand for that sort of thing. But usually he does not get a second invitation to speak before the same club. He has a faculty for getting himself In bad; he Is a consummate egotist and he takes a sadistic delight In saying things which make his au dience uncomfortable. Probably nine tenths of his readers are women, but when he has an audience of women, he usually asperses their intelligence cate gorically and In detail. "That Is a cultivated attitude which feeds his own vanity. When he was in Chicago, he felt called upon to upbraid the dltxens for the physical unloveliness of the city. He lamented that the archi tecture there was not the same as that of Florence. He was Invited to speak before a certain club and In sheer per versity failed to show up. When no one later showed concern for his negli gence, he called up his hostess five times, trying to get her to arrange another lec ture date for him.” Hugh Walpole, In “An Open Letter to $1.25 Gris Gingham Dresses $1.25 Jffomen’s Boom Dresses Ages Bto 14 years.

Menehen” in the May Bookman, re futes Mr. Mensken's charge that the Eng lish critics are neglecting the more re cent American novelists. By way of ex plaining the comparatively small sales of their work in England, Mr. Walpole says: “For some reason, the American novel presents English readers with conditions that are very difficult for them to under stand. Part of the difficulty is beyond question this problem of the new Ameri can language. Take ‘Main Street’ or ‘Three Soldiers' or ‘Moon-Calf,’ and you will find pages of those books peppered with phrases that to nine Engllshmea out of ten are quite unintelligible. When you get to the words of Don Marquis or Ring Lardner they might, for most Eng lish readers, he Just as readily written in Russian or Chinese. But it is not only difficulty of language. American con ditions simply have no parallel In this country. The majority of Englishmen have not visited the United States, and many of those who have been there have penetrated no farther than the wilds of New York and Chicago. • • • “The fact remains that the American novel is at present dealing with condi tions unknown to the English reader, STORE OPEN SATURDAY UNTIL 9 P.
