London, April 11.—(United Press)
Stirred by her personal discoveries In
''slumland," Queen Mary today took
the unprecedented step of summoning
the leading British housing and health
authorities to discuss and draw
plans for immediate betterment of liv
ing conditions of the workers.
King George made a speech of wel

about 100 and also evinced the liveliest

Queen Mary recently paid a series of
surprise visits to the East London
slum area and was shocked at what
she saw. Hitherto, carefully stage
managed "visits to ttie homes of the
workers" had provided nice, clean cot
tages belonging to the better class
workers and energetic officials had
seen that everything was in order for
the royal visit.
SEES OTHER SIDE
''Very nice and clean," the queen was
always able to say on departing, but
her unofficial visits showed the other
side of the picture.
"Terrible terrible," she exclaimed,
aghast at the squalor and unsanitary
conditions she found everywhere. Then
"why wasn't I told of this?" The court
officials had nothing to say. So Queen
Mary turned to a man who would
know. Colonel W. J. Lewis, mayor of
the East Side district of Bethnal
"I am afraid I have always stuck to
the highways too much," she said.
"I want you to show me the by

United Press "the queen was disgus'ed

Overcrowding was the chief evil.
One house the queen visited contained
a mother and seven children in two

upstairs room for fear of mice. The
queen assured the woman that she also
was afraid of mice.

LENINE AIDE IN BUDAPEST.
M. Lamelll, personal representative
, of Premier Renine, is said to have ar
rived in Budapest. He Is reported to
(have promised the Hungarians an
army of 150,000 to aid them In
strengthening their control of the
country. Lenlne, it Is said, continues
to counsel moderation for the Hun
Rurlans and advises them to avoid
Russia's excesses. He hopes soon to
establish physical communication with
Hungary, which is impossible at pres
ent because of the fact that strong
Rumanian and Czecho-Slovak forces
now form a barrier.
Lenine also is reliably reported to
be making preparations to install Bol
shevism In Rumania and Bulgaria,
thus directly linking Russia up with
Hungary and Bavaria.
