WANTS IXPLANATION Declares That America Has Been ™Maintaining TroopT'on^Tcaraijuan Soil Since Disturbance in 1910 —Costa Rica Involved. Washington—An investigation by the etwite foreign relations committee to ascertain "the true state of affairs" in Nicaragua, the facts concerning Amer ican occupation of that republic, in 1910 why American forces still are quartered there, and "the connection between certain New York commercial houses' and the Chamorro Clan govern ment of Nicaragua" was proposed in a resolution introduced by Senator Ladd, Republican, North Dakota. Makes Serious Charges. The resolution set forth at length various criticisms of the American policy with respect to Nicaragua, de claring that "no state of war exists between the United States and Nicar agua which would justify the perman ent quartering of our military forces upon a territory of a friendly, neigh borly nation" that "the executive de part has no constitutional powers to maintain such invasion without the consent of congress," and that "such permanent occupation conflicts with the traditional policy of the United States and is inimical to the continu ance of friendly and harmonious rela tions with Central American repub lics." Reference also was made In the measure to resolutions adopted at a mass meeting in Managua which, it was said, accused Dr. Maximo H. Ze peda, a Nicaraguan delegate to the Central American conference now in session in Washington, of being' "a traitor to his country" and "a warrior of Wall street- bankers against the legitimate interests in his country." Says Nicaragua Was Forced. Another charge set forth in the resolution was that "while the United States marine still remained in con trol of the Nicaraguan capital," after the occupation of 1910 and while "United States naval officers virtually dictated the policies of its nominal president, the United States govern ment consummated an important treaty with Nicaragua." An attempt to en force the terms of this treaty, the reso lution added, "has created disputes between the United States government and certain other Central American nations involving territorial grants for a naval base and commercial conces sions." A further subject of Inquiry under the resolution would be "the diplo matic conversations which preceded and followed the so-called Nicaraguan government's repudiation of the decree of the International court of justice in disputed matters which concerned Costa Rica, Salvador and Honduras as well as the United States government. TURK FEARS HALT PARLEY Straits Negotiations May Fail Because of Ottoman Stand. Lausanne—Turkish fears of subma rines, Turkish fears of swiftly flying military airplanes laden with bombs, and generally. Turkish fears of aggres sions from without that will put Con stantinople in danger, have placed the whole Lausanne conference in jeop ardy. iigHf The United States is silent on the situation but the allied leaders say that they have uttered their last word on the question of liberty of the straits. The Turks must say yes or no to the allied project. The British experts, Admiral Keyes and General Burdett-Stuart, already have left for England, believing their work to have been completed and the French experts are preparing to depart at the conclusion of the "last session" for discussion of the straits. Whether a rupture will come on the straits problem depends chiefly on whether the entente diplomats and their ex perts can remove the Turkish fears. This they are now trying to do. An additional fear of the Turks which the allies must calm is that with which they surround the proposed international commission to supervise control of the straits. The Turks claim that the commission will be inquisi torial in nature, that it may infringe Turkish sovereignty, and. finally, that It may be used as a club by some pow ers to threaten Turkey. Hence their ambition to have a general guarantee pact signed at Lausanne which will assure the neutrality of the straits and prevent acts of hostility in Turkish territorial waters.

He did not free himself until more than an hour after the bandits had fled in their car. The robbers apparently took every precaution by cutting communication, but missed one telephone line running into town. The alarm was spread quickly over the surrounding country. BABC0CK AGAINST TAX RAISE Commissioner Claims Several Irregu larities Now Existing Should Be Remedied. Minneapolis—Charles M. Babcock, Minnesota highway commissioner, took a definite strind against any legisla tion which would increase taxes at this time, when he addressed members of the Allied Automotive Association at a luncheon in the West Hotel yes terday noon. Mr. Babcock advocated some changes in the present automobile li cense law. He said he did not seek increases, but thought no decreases should be made.

He thought some adjustment should be made in such cases. CRASH WHEN ORDERS FAILED 8core Hurt, Most of Them Passengers on Chicago-Minneapolis Train.

Washington The ambition of President Harding to provide the basis for the adjustment of the most acute of Europen irritations has blanketed popular interest in domestic political problems. Comment reflecting politi cal as well as popular reactions from it clearly indicates both approval and confidence in the success of it. It is to be expected of course that critics both in and out of congress will find fault with any method which Mr. Harding and his advisors may adopt to bring about the consummation of universal hope.

FREEDOM FROM LAXATIVES Discovery by Scientists Has Replaced Them. Pills and salts give temporary re lief from constipation only at the ex pense of permanent injury, says an eminent medical authority. Science has found a newer, better way—a means as simple as Nature Itself. In perfect health a natural lubricant keeps the food waste soft and moving. But when constipation exists this nat ural lubricant Is not suflicient. Medi cal .authorities have found that the gentle lubricating action of Nujol most closely resembles that of Nature's own lubricant. As Nujol is not a laxative It cannot gripe. It Is In no sense a medicine. And like pure water It is harmless and pleasant. Nujol is prescribed by physicians used In leading hospitals.
