SLIGHT RIFT IN ITALIAN CLOUD Intimations from Rome Are That Overtures from Paris Would Not Be Wholly Unacceptable Just Now DELICATELY DIPLOMATIC French. Hrltlsh nnd United State Dele gate!., However, Are Snld to Fnvor Sentiment Which Don Not lineour nitf. He turn of Itnllnn Delegate (By tho Associated Press) Intimations have been received In Paris that overtures for a resumption of tho conferences on the disputed questions would receive every nttcntlon In Romo nnd would not. bo uacccptablo but It has been assorted In Paris that tho prevailing sentiment among tho delegates of France, Great Britain and tho United States Is opposed to requesting the Italian dele gates to return. It has been added, however, that If the Italians should evince a disposition to give up their claims to Flumo and accept Presi dent Wilson's suggestions on tho contro versy, the President, in tho Interest of harmony, doubtless could mako sugges tions which would permit of a continua tion of tho discussions without sacrifice of dignity by tho Italians. President Wilson and the other mem bers of- the council aro declared to bo unwilling to concede Flumo to the Italians, even If such refusal should result In Italy finding herself not able to sign tho peace treaty. Thomas Nel son Page, American ambassador to Italy has conferred at length with Premier Orlando and Foreign Minister Sonnlno and telegraphed a report to Paris outlining tho views of tho Italians and tho Italian government on tho situation. Although reports still persist that Munich has been completely Invested by government troops, the expected attack on the Soviet forces apparently has not begun. The British war office In an official statement expresses tho belief that tho ce In tho Dvina river In Northern Russia had passed out to sea and that the river Is open for navigation as far as Kotlas. If this should be a fact It may presage the early embarkation for home of tho American forces fight ing on tho Archangel front. Official details concerning tho latest phases of the deliberations of the Council of Three of the peace conference in Paris aro somewhat obscure. It is known, how over, that tho Japanese question con cernlng Klao-Chau has been settled. The terms of the agreement", according to un official advices. Involve tho surrender by Germany of Klao-Chau to Japan, but In duo courso Japan will re-transfer this stronghold on the Shantung peninsula to China. Likewise, It Is stated, also unofficially, that, there aro Indications that the Council of Three has looked with favor upon the request of the Belgians for an immediate advance on their share of the Indemnity which Germany Is to pay in reparation for damages and given tho delegates satisfactory assurances that tho money will be forthcoming for tho Belgians to begin tho reconstruction of tho country over-run by tho Germans. Therefore the only outstanding problem of great Importance before the council apparently Is that duo tn the claims of Italy to Flume and the Dalmatlon coast region. Although both the Italian Senate ind Chamber of Deputies havo given Premier Orlando's government and tho Italian delegates to the peace confer ence strong votes of confidence for their stand In endea'orlng to obtain for Italy strict fulfillment of her demands. there Is no evidence as yet of tho pros pect of an Immediate compromise being offered by either sldo to tho contro versy, TYRELL GOES BACK Will Fnee ChnrKe In C'nliforaln of StcnllnK Automobile Montpeller, April 30. Deputy Sheriff Frank Cochran left this evening for Los Angeles, Cat., with Lester Tyrell, who was arrested In Wnterhury ten days ngn on the starge of stealing a Studebaker automobllo In Loh Angeles somn months ngo. Tyrell had brought habeas corpus proceedings In the matter In hopes to be able to obtnln release from Washing ton county court beforo tho officers from the West could reach here. Continua tion of tho matter prevented this, so that when Governor Clement's warrant was shown to Judge Fish and tho rest of tho court tho proceedings wero dis missed and tho ordor filed with tho clerk to that effect. Doputy Cochran brought with him requisition papers upon which was a photograph that resembled Tyrell so closely that Identification was certain. Tho extradition was given by Governor Clement without hearing tho evidence and court record, tho requisition being sufficient so that no hearing was needed Tyrell has been living In Waterbury for some time. Ho has a wlfo and child, tho latter about three and one-half yearn of age. Tho ofilcer who camo hero told officials that Tyrell had a court record, It appears that, according to tho officer, that in addition to tho Studebaker auto mobllo no tried to steal a Stutz and wns having trouble starting It when tho ownor saw him get Into the car, driving It away. .

RETURNING YANKEE IIS Tears and Cheers Aplenty at the Union Station When Sixty-Five Veterans Meet the Home folks after the Rigors of War City's Belld and Whistles Enhance the Welcome Par ade, Bands, Flowers and Banquet for the Re turned Heroes Reception Program Is Car ried Out to the Last Detail Soldiers Everybody Else Happy Historic Day ii Annals of the Queen City. The Boys Have Come Home!!" Burlington's home-fires, kept nftame during tho IS months since her sons de parted for the scene of conflict across the sea, burst Into a mighty conflagration yesterday morning when CT stalwart wearers of the "YD," tho most famous division which visited France, (so say wo all), took the city by storm and captured the hearts of their former townspeople In ono swift stroke which carried all before them. They came, were greeted, paraded, dined, and went to tholr homes rejoicing that they were again among their loved ones In llttlo old Vermont. To say that It was a gala day for Bur lington expresses It lamely. It Is doubt ful if ever In tho history of tho city, tho hearts of tho people havo been poured out In such sincere tribute and unanimous acclaim to deserving representatives of tho Queen City, an that which was ac corded yesterday to the Burlington mem bers of the 101st Ammunition Train, 26th Division, lately returned from France. It was not so much the mere formality of greeting tho boys at the station, watch ing them parade tho streets of tho city, as others less worthy havo paraded It In the past, or banqueting them at tho Van N'ess, with words of greeting, that made the day a tremendous one. These wero the formal things, the expected happenings. But there was something underneath tt all, something which made the by stander feel a tightness in his throat and his eyes get moist with unaccustomed, hut unashamed tears as he saw the big fellows In the olive drab bend to kiss tho lips of llttlo women In hlack or rosy cheoked maids In bright colors' who lifted tholr smiling faces to greet their heroes after tho age-long separation. This was not a mere formality. It was the realiza tion of days of waiting nno nights of sleepless longing, fearing nnd hoping, tho great climax of supreme Joy, showing In tho beaming faces of the fathers and mothers, platers and brottiers, wives, sweethearts and friends. And It Is only from tho faces and actions of these that one may read the story of such an occa sion. No mere newspaper articlo can tell It, be It written in the cholest nf metaphors nnd headed with flaming capitals. BURLINGTON'S DAY It was Burlington's day, the only day In which she will luive tho opportunity to greet any considerable number of her boys returning from overseas at tho same time. Burlington's celebration roally begnn Tuesday night when a largo number of people turned out to meet the 11:40 train from tha south on which the first contingent of "YD" heroes reached tho city. These were mostly boys from further north, who were on their way home. Early yesterday morning, the bells aril whistles of tho city opened up In honor of tho arrival of a number of Wlnooski boys on the 5:05 train. It was an hour or more beforo this outburst quieted. Long beforo tho 9:30 train from tho south was due, crowds of peoplo thronged the platforms and corridors of iho Union station nnd overflowed to nil tho sur rounding streets. Tho train was an hour late, but everybody waited, lest they might miss tho first glimpse of tho re turning soldiers. It wns a cold, raw morning, not well suited to standing In the open air for an hour and a half, or more, with nothing to do but wait. This discomfort eeemcd to bother tho peoplo not at all. They stuck solidly In their places, determined to do their part as well ns the boys had done theirs on tho battlefields of Franco. Inside tho Union station, Sherman's Military band, which arrived early, gavo a concert to pass away tho tlmo and entertain the largo assembly. From above, tho thong of people surging back and forth on the platform losldo the tracks resembled a waving rainbow, the hats of tho feminine portion lending all UIO uiiliilH jit'cusntii y iu iiiu uui'i'i, .1 , , , " "c ... m, . ill tho colors necessary to tho effect, A ever, was tho fact that tho red, white and blue wero tho colors which predominated, oven In tho hat trimmings, to say nothing of tho largo number of flags which wero In evidence. Bluo nccmed to be tho most popular in hats. Possibly, bluo being tho color usually representing constancy, there was a method In tho cholco of bluo hats by tho young ladles on this occa sion, TRAIN ARRIVES AMID MUCH NOISE At 10:27, the train pulled Into the sta tion, preceded by tho sounding of tho Burlington llro alarm, and accompanied by the shrieking of whistles and tho out burst of hundreds of voices. It Ih safe to say that thoro wero at loast 5,000 peoplo In and nbout tho station when tho train arrived, For 20 minutes, tho boys wero greeted by their relatives and friends (and this Included nearly everybody who could got near enough to them). Some of tho sccnen enacted nt this tlmo might bo Immortal ized In heroic couplets. Ono tall hero of many hattlos was so literally besieged with femlnlno admirers, and his lips wero In such great demand that ho finally had to bo rescued by his comrades bofore tha onslaught carried him entirely off his feet. And tho greetings of wives, sweet hearts, ray-hulred mothers, beaming fathers, hrothers, sisters, aunts inicie , cousins, and the babies. But let us turn our backs and pns ovi r tho remainder of these few minutes o heaven to tho waiting ones. PARADE FORMS Shortly before 11 o'clock, th" pirado formed.
