PRESIDENT REFUSES TO RECEIVE MEMBERS OF ANTI-DRY CLUB Society Women Indulge in Hissing When Refusal Read. New Yors. Jan. 4.—Members of the Molly Pitcher Club, some of them prominent society and club women, in dulged in hissing yesterday when it was announced nt a cln’o luncheon that Vreeident Harding had declined to meet a delegation named to lay before him the club's arguments for repeal of ths prohibition amendment. The storm burst when Ransom H. Gillett, counsel for the New York di vision of the association opposed to the prohibition amendment, read excerpts from a letter from the President giving as grounds for his refusal to meet the woman hia belief that "it is a futile thing to expect the repeal of the amend ment” and that such an interview could only “result in controversul publicity and create a suspicion that the federal govetament is not in good faith endeav oring to enforce the prohibition laws.” The club made public a part of the President’s letter and gave out a newly adopted resolution, arguing against the validity of his objections to the inter view and renewing the request that the delegation be received. The resolution also reminded the President that he re cently had received a church delegation "to discuss prohibition.” Mr. Gillett speaking of the Presi dent's refusal to see the delegation, de clared that “when the chief executive of this republic can not receive any delegation to discuss any topic as pro vided for under the constitution, then the republic is in danger." He then quoted from the President's letter: "Ordinarily I would receive any dele gation on your suggestion, and 1 try to make it a rule to find time for any audience with any delegation whose members desire to present to the Presi dent a pressing problem of government. Frankly, however. 1 do not believe it would be an opportune time just now to receive a delegation which aims to give expression to its hostility to the 18th amendment.lvis such a futile thing to expect the repeal of the amendment that I doubt the wisdom of giving an interview which can only result in con troversial publicity and create a suspi cion that the federal government is nol in good faith, endeavoring to enforce the prohibition laws.” Miss‘Elizabeth Marbury, club presi dent. and one of several anti-prohibition speakers who addressed the gathering, criticized federal agents and the police for the manner in which they enforced the prohibition enforcement law here on New Year's eve. predicting that “such a form of despotism would speedily break down all respect for law and or der."

CABLE SNAPS APART Structure Gives Way in Midst of Heavy Traffic Jam. tue Asßoeiated Frew*. Kelso, Wash., Jan. 4.—Names of eight missing persons while estimates of the lost ran as high as 30, when rescue parties resumed their search today of the Cowlitz river into which nu old sus pension bridge, here bearing scores of men and women, collapsed at 5 o clock last night. From 50 to 100 pedestrians, one truck and at least ten passenger auto mobiles were on the bridge when it fell. The structure gave way in the midst of a traffic jam. Most of the persons on the bridge were thrown into the river and many were picked up by boats or swam ashore. After darkness efforts to recover bodies were futile, though the river steamer. Pomona, played a searchlight over the scene. Vp to this morning no bodies had been found. Six Seriously Hurt. Of those rescued two are believed fatally injured. Six others were taken from the water seriously hurt. The missing include Ben Barr, coun ty commissioner-elect; Mr. and Mrs. A. G. Huntington, pioneer residents of Kelso, and several employe* of logging camps. Early today there was a rush of rela tives seeking some word ‘of lose loved one« and a constantly growing list of missing persons. The exact death toll may not be known for several days as the Cowlitz and the Columbia, into which it flows about two miles below the citv, may swirl the bodies of the victims mnny miles. The bridge connected east and west Kelso. A cable support buekled and the bridge threw trucks, automobiles and their passengers into the torrent, swollen by recent floods. Five minutes before the accident, scores of cars were backed up at cither approach, together with many pedes trians waiting to cross. Thus press of traffic had dwindled when the bridge crashed. Survivors Tell of Crash. Survivors told almost identical stories. To swim ashore, encumbered with heavy clothing, was a test to be met only by the strongest and most adept. Many of the survivors were pulled from the river three blocks below the wreckage. Exploration of the wreckage was be gun with daylight and an endeavor was made to grapple for submerged automo bile* in which bodies might be held. The estimated number rescued was 40. J. F. Hamilton, a construction engineer, a witness of the disaster com mented : “Some will say that the height of the river, and the log jam that had ac cumulated against it, weakened the structure and caused it to collapse. I can not agree with this, for only a few days ago I inspected the piers and they were not weakened. It was the cable which broke, for some unknown reason, possibly at the impact ot a heavy jar.” Scant as the warning wa« st the snapping of. the cable, many pedestrians on the bridge raced to safety, and in one or two instances automobiles were backed away.

Jan. 4.—Chicago police are substituting for the crude brutalities of “the third degree” the new terrors of psychology. Through , practical application of psychological principles, particularly through breaking down resistance of the conscious mind and liberating the unconscious mind, they are wringing confessions from criminals. The new system is having its most spectnucular test in the case of Albert Foster, arrested on a charge of first degree murder in connection with the mysterious disappearance of his former fiancee, Mrs. Kate Mitchell Trostell. Quizzed Vs Hours. For 98 hours —without sleep or let-up —Detective Chief Michael Hughes and his assistants put Foster through the psychological third degree. There were no threats of physical violence, no shouting and denunciation, no shooting of firearms. “We proceeded on the theory,” Hughes explained, "that in every hu man being is a spark of decency, and if you can free that spark, the flame of truth is bound to leap outward.” At the end of 98 hours of psycho logical sweating. Hughes had obtained from Foster a statement Mrs. Trostell and ho had quarreled, she was taken sick and she jumped into the drainage canal. Had it not becn'for this statement, the police would have had to free Foster, for the body of Mrs. Trostell has not yet been found. Now the inquisition is proceeding with the purpose of wringing from Foster the truth about some stains found on bis coat and on the running board of bis automobile. These stains were analyzed by an official chemist, who said they were human blood. Foster's inquisitors first tried to build up before his mind's eye the image of the crime of ehieb he was suspected. They held before him time aftertime a picture of Mrs. Tros tell. Often as many as 30 men sur rounded him and plied him with ques tion*. * “Can’t Stick to Lie.” “All criminals lie.” said Hughes. “But rare is the man who <an stick to a lie. We find a liar will tell n different version of the same story to almos teveryone. So we lead a sus pect into telling lies, then we check TWO BOYS MISSING' ANNULMENT OF DANCER’S AFTER BURNING OF MARRIAGE IS VACATED BY DALLAS ORPHAN home judge CHARGING PERJURY Lads Known to Have Been in Dormitory Which Was Destroyed.

The court further recommended that the New York Bar association investi gate the practices of Charles l-irestone, of Mount Vernon and New York, at torney of gecord for the dancer in the suit for annullment. “A gross fruud has been perpetrated on the court," Justice Thompkins wrote in his decision. “Perjury has been com mitted by both complainants, deceit anil concealment resorted to. and irregular and improper practice indulged in by the plaintiffs attorney of record.

They turned back at Thumb Rock, the half-way point, at noon, Tuesday. and pleaded hysterically with him to tell her where her mother was. The spark of decency, according to police psychologists, burst into the flame of truth. And then Foster was led away for a few hours’ rest, after which the inquisition was r rd. The affidavits submitted by counsel for Whitney included several letters alleged to have been written by the dancer to Adair in which a plan of collusion to set aside their marriage was outlined. The dancer and Adair were married in Texas. It was the claim of Miss Fon taine that she becamd sepdated from her husband three hours after their mar riage. He entered the navy and died sometime later. Adair Declined Her Plans.
