IMPRESSIVE MUSICAL PROGRAM The 'rendering of Haydn's majestic oratorio, "The Creation," Sunday night at Normal auditorium, Rich mond, was an unqualified success, and reflected the greatest credit upon Dr. Myers, it. director, and all the par- ticipanta.

Secretary of Commerce Hoover probably will come Into hi. own again aa an organ izer and p.-oinoter, "and. If he can be, the deliverer of the goods. The State department and the Commerce department have of neces sity been marking time !n the matter of trade extension. Study therl haa leen of the problem, of the future with a view to securing the fruits of the future, but until the Oerman repara tion' matter was nettled there could be no active movement along business extension lines In the countries over sea. Diplomatic Agents Oat Busy. Every diplomatic agent of the United States, In whatever capacity he Is serving, Is today under Instructions to give his government everything that he knows, or that he ran find out. which will be of assistance In the ex tension of our trade, and In bringing economic stability to the world. The blgget stone iu the way of the return to normal conditions lias been removed by CeruiHiiy's words: "We accept." There Is a long aud atlll obscure path which lead to ultimate pronier1ty. but the I'nlted Ststes seemingly is deter mined to pursue It step by step until It reaches the port of normalcy, or, per ha lis. the port of something better. Ottlclals of the State department have faith In the ability of liermauy seedlly to re entahllah herself on basis of productiveness. If the Ger mans do not work with a heart to bring about their ultimata salvation, they will give the lie to their paat reo ords. It has been said specifically In the Itepartineut of State that no ona who underatanda what la In tha Ger man nation, when once Its mind la made up and lta course set, ran doubt that at once It will bend every effort to secure that rehabilitation of Indus try necessary to pay Its way aud to give lta people paying work. THREE OFFICERS TO INVESTIGATEWRECK VISIT WRtCK SCENE, LAUNCHING INQUIRY INTO EAGLE AERIAL MISHAP. Eastern Army Tilers Deftnd Comrade, Wha, With Six Others, Leet Lifs In Crash Battle With ElemeaU Da scribed By Marine Corps Major. Wcaler Nawaiaipar Union News Service. Washington. Appointment of a board of three oltlcera of the Army Air Service to Investigate tha ctrcum stancea surrounding tha accident in which five army men snd two civilians lost their lives when the Bagle, a big army ambulance airplane,' crashed to tlie earth In a severs storm near Mor gantown, Md, waa announced by Ma jor M. K. Scanlon, commandant at Boiling Field. Captain W. C. Ocker, who waa caught in tha storm himself when flying here fn,m Langley Klald in an 8. K.-ft single seat plane, is senior member of the board. The oth ers sre l.ieuteuant P. C. Wllkllis, who waa the first army officer to go to the scene of the crash and take charge of the bodies, and Lieutenant Wolfe. They will endeavor to determine among other things whether the craali ,whs the result of any defect in design or equipment of tha airplane, or of any in Intake or mismanagement on the part of the pilot. Lieutenant S. M Amea, and whether the five army men met death In line of duty. Flying ohVera H'litloneil in the city and at Ilollliig Field aserted em phatically their belief tliut Lieutenant Amea had not "lost lila head'' in tlie atorm and therefore iu a measure, at least, was not rcsMiiilile for the acci dent, lie waa one of the best und c.Milint officers in the service and was fumlllar with the big plane, they de clared. They also were Inclined to dis credit reports that the wrecked ma chine was defective in design. Major Scanlon declared that lie hud pilule I a similar plane without the ambulance equipment to New York with uUhl pasHfiigers recently and found it to be satisfactory In every way. The Board of Investigation visited the scene of the wreck and took Uie ti-aliniony of persons who were near by when the Kmrle crushed. They made a careful at inly of the wreckage and afterward had it burned, as It was cosidered to be unsanitary. No pun of tha plane whs aalvageubla. olllcers said, adding that "army aviator would not fly In a plane carrying any equipment taken from the wrecked machine ii)uy." It was regarded as probable that tlie details of the accident never would be known, ss every man iu the plane was killed. An examination of the per sonal effects of the victims showed that alx of the seven watches had atoped at 0 :'M p. ui., fixing the exact time of tha rnisli, it waa believed, be yond dispute. The seventh watch stop ped at 8:25 p. in. Tha board was expected to fltilah lta Inquiry and report lo Major Scanlon. A number of photographs of tha wrecked machine were taken. Major T. C.

World News essssaaasssaaaMajaBj Sir Robert Cecil, the English states man, is not discouraged over Am bassador Harvey'a announcement re garding the United States attitude toward the League of Nations. Af ter summarizing tha things which the League has already achieved, he expressed the opinion that the League would continue to carry on its work. He admitted imperfections which it is expected will be remedied nd at the same time affirmed that the League ia the best means for international action ever devised. Conditions must be coming to a head in Russia and the end of the communistic system is drawing; near. It I. rumored that Lenine has rec ommended a change toward recogni tion of capitalism. More important perhaps ia a report by an English committee which shows how impossi ble Is the continuance of a system that discriminates against foreigners within the country, and by a propa ganda of radicalism alienates coun tries outside. The future welfare of Russia demand, a change and it Is on the way. Memorial Day has been observed in almost all of the countries of Europe. This practice I. said to have origi nated In the South after the Civil War In an Informal way among the Confederate soldiers. It was observ ed by Gen. Jno. A. Logan and estab lished a. an annual occasion by the Grand Army. The recent war with Its millnns of .lain has been the oc casion for Its observance thruout the world, and representatives of all na tions shared In the Impressive serv ice at Arlington Cemetery in Wash ington. Greater confidence has beerf created by Germany's payment of two bil lion dollars as a part payment of her indemnity. It was paid in gold bonds or Treasury Notes, backed up by several of the leading banks of Germany. The amount is to be di vided up among the claimants, Bel gium being the first to receive a part. Should promptness mark the payment of the whole obligation as it comes due, it would be a large factor in restoring conditions to their former state. The Balkans are still a source of anxiety to the European nations and a menance to the peace of the world. The peoples of Albania and Macedo nia were not satisfied by any terms of settlement at the close of the war. Treaties drawn up neglected their problems. So their rough and half barbarian t roups are seeking to win by force what they want. As the soldiers of Greece, Bulgaria and Ser via try to oppose them, old jealousies are being revived which easily might Involve other countries of Europe. A strong international police ia need ed to keep the Balkans quiet. A plebiscite has just been taken in Austria to determine the attitude of the people toward union with Ger many. So far as reported the rote is overwhlemingly in favor of the union. Such a procedure is not al lowable by the treaty of Versailles, but the Austrians hope to force pub ic opinion. Meanwhile the Council of the League of Nations has ex pressed the opinion that Austria can recover and maintain a separate na tional existence if help is extended to her. The German court at Lelpsig is taking up the cases of military of ficials charged with cruelty in the recent war. A verdict has been rend ered in the case of a eergeant, Heg ner, who had charge of a prison in Westphalia. On the evidence of Englishmen imprisoned there he was condemned to transport from Ger many for ten months. The penalty is regarded in England as too light and a protest haa been raised. There are many cases to be taken up, and any verdict must be regard ed as a victory for the cause of ln temational law. Oft loan le Execute.
