Absence of Secretary
Of Navy From Din
ner Seen As Rebuke
To Retiring Chief
NEW YORK. Feb. 16.—Ob—Failure
of Secretary of the Navy Curtis D.
Wilbur to attend a testimonial din
ner given Rear Admiral Charles P.
Plunkett is viewed as a public Re
buke by Col. E. A. Simmons, chair
man of the banquet committee. The
occasion for the dinner was the ad
miral’s retirement from active ser
vice on his 64th birthday.
Col. Simmons read a letter In
which Secretary Wilbur expressed re
gret at his inability to attend, but
the colonel later in a btatement to
reporters expressed the opinion that
the letter was "but a «%oke screen.”!
“The real reason why he did not
come and which he made known to
me over the telephone.” said the
statement, “was fear that his pres
ence at any dinner in honor of Ad
mirable Plunkett so soon after the
world-wide publicity in connection
with the admiral’s speech at tho na
tional republican club on Jan. 21
would be misunderstood.”
In his speech of Jan. 21, Admiral
Plunkett in urging a large and well
equipped navy said: "If I read his
tory correctly. ar.d what we are do
ing today, we are nearer war today
than we have ever been in our his
tory, because we are too damned
"I don't care whether it is with
Great Britain, or some otner nation,
you arc going to have war just as
surely as you are sitting in this
room with me, if you dare to contest
the control of the sea with your
goods, not with your guns.”

O’Neil Browne, lawyer, legislator

mile down streat^^efore it was re

62 years old, slipped from the same
wall, but was saved when his sus
penders caught on an iron hook.
Friends often had warned him
against walking along the wall, be
cause he was subject to dizzy spells.
Only recently be agreed to construc
tion of a guard rail there.
Death came while a jury was de
bating the fate of voung Harry HiP
whom Browne bad defend°d against
charges of matricide. Browne had
just returned from the courthouse in

German Combine Plan
Tcld at Meeting
In Washington
WASHINGTON, Feb. 16.—UP)— In- j
ternational combinations of pro
ducers in the chemical field, under
German leadership, were described
today by William A. Daugherty,
trade commissioner at Berlin, a.* j
likely to expand, but he said the Ger- j
man executives are anxious to avoid i
any appearance of fighting the Am
erican industry.
Daugherty gave his views to man
agers of leading American concerns
in the field, assembled here at the j
call of Secretary Hoover to consider j
the situation resulting from inter- i
national agreements looking to con
trol of prices and production of dye
stuff-, fertilizers and ther essential
raw materials.
The French and German agreement
over dyes and potash, Commissioner
Daugherty said, represented "a drift
toward an economic entente between
the two bitterest enemies of the late
"They set the stage for another
agreements with other countries." he
continued. “There are many of these
agreements already, though nothing
much has been said or printed about
“They refer to price fixing and j
production allocation agreements on j
specific chemicals. Even though
deadlocked for the time being, it can
be little doubted that eventually 1
agreement will be reached between |
.German Dye trust and Imperial
pCb**micals in England.
“I eading figures of the German J
Dye tru?t deny first that they are ;
out to fight the American chemical I
industry, and secondly, they deny |
that the trust has bought heavily j
into shares of American chemical ;
companies. They emphasize that it j
is their wish to frame agreements |
with elements in the American indus- i
try ns far as this is possible.”
