THE BRIDGEPORT TIMES Page Three Mary de Mumm, French Heiress, To Be Raised In Uuited States Seneca, Kan., June 18. Mary De Mumm, six years old, has gone to Newport News, Va., to make her home with her aunt, Mrs. Josephine Tread we 11 and there await disposi tion by the French Government of property which may some day make her worth millions. The little girl is a daughter oi Frances Scoville De Mumm, former ly of this place, who married Count de Mumm while in Germany pursu ing a musical education. When the World war came Count De Mumm, although possessing pro perty in France worth millions, cast his lot with the Central Powers and became a lieutenant in the German army. This caused an estrangement, for his wife's sympathies were with the Allies, and she brought suit for di vorce. The French Government, learning of Do Mumm's action, seized his property in France as a war indem nity. Following: her divorce Madame De Mumm's citizenship in the United States was restored to her through special Act of Congress in order that her property rights in France might be protected. She died in Paris a year ago, and her body was brought to Seneca for burial, and her daugh ter has been living here since that time. rattle Mary will now be raised by her aunt, and she has inherited the rights of her mother in the French estates of her father.

Widespread be lief that the eight former members of the Chicago White Sox, accused of "throwing" the 1919 World's series, would not be tried because of a ru mored lack of evidence, was dispell ed today. George E. Forman, assist ant state's attorney, announced he would go before one of the criminal court judges and demand an immed iate trial of the men. His action also will affect the alleged gamblers and others indicated in connection with the same conspiracy. GREEKS HALT OFFENSIVE Constantinople, June 1 7 The Greek offensive against the Turkish Nationalists has been halted while final decision of the British to back up the Greeks is pending. It any case, however, the Greeks are ex pected to launch a local offensive east of Ushak where the Turks are badly placed. This offensive would be or dered for the purpose of maintaining the prestige of King Constantine. General Ismet Pasha, commander of Nationalist troops at Eski-Shehr, has summed up the Greek position by saying: "They are in the same position as a. man who has started to sneeze and finds himself unable to do so." INVENTS DEVICE TO DETECT ICEBERGS Paris, June 18. A device to guard ships approaching: or distant icebergs is claimed to have been found by M. Larigaldie, of the French Society of Klectricians. Ever since the Titanic disaster, in 1912, this inventor has been working on a scheme whereby icebergs will be visible at many miles distance. Experiments conducted off the north coast of Newfoundland aboard a French gunboat are said to have been conclusive, though not absolutely per fect. In working on his invention M. Earigaldie considered the dangers of icebergs to shipping and the delays and expenses incurred by ships having to take more southerly courses during cold weather. If his invention proves successful the inventor claims that ships will henceforth be able to navi gate in more northerly waters, and he hopes thereby to reduce both the danger of cross-Atlantic travel and the time needed to make the crossing. The apparatus M. Larigaldie em ployed on his trials consisted of a gilded parabolical mirror, which can freely oscillate around its horizontal diameter. A heavy lead weight re duces its period of oscillation so as to render it insensible to the rolling of the ship. The axle of the apparatus directed toward the bow of the ship directly cuts the horizon. In the cen tre ot the mirror a special thermo electrical coupling, is placed, which, carefully calorifled, is protected by sylvine, a highly transparent sub stance. Despite serious difficulties due in some measure to the narrow surface of the mirror, it was possible to notice a diminution of the current produced by the thermo-electrical coupling when an iceberg crossed the horizon at a distance of six knots. Expecting official aid, .M. Larigaldie is fully confident he can improve greatly on his apparatus and that it will be rapidly adopted by all ocean going snips. -&&& Plan British Air Taxi Service Charging 12 Cents An Hour London, June 18 There will be wonderful developments in England ihortly in the service of air taxicabs. More than twenty landing grounds, pr air "garages," are now available throughout the country for journeys ky aircraft, and a machine may be fcired to carry a pilot and two pas jengers for $35 a hour. I As the particular sort of aeroplane ihat is used for this purpose moves t an average rate of 30 miles an tour, it means that super-taxi" i-ansport through the air costs about 4 cents a mile. Improved aircars are nearing com pletion for hire. They will carry .four passengers instead of two for :he same expenditure of power and it the same rate of hiring. Tins will mean that individually, if a party of four hire a machine for a rapid jour- iey. the cost will come down to not to ore than 12 cents per mile. England is promised an organiza-i Jon of the new "air cabs" through out the country, a certain number j . ecu J . -. . . . . . , ifi each big city. : Premier Briand personally deco ated Otto H. Kahn. an American anker, for his services to France luring the war. SHEEP ROAST AND BASEBALL GAME TUESDAY A sheep roast and baseball game will formally open the new athletic field at Hillside home next Tuesday afternoon. A clash between the Y. M. C. A. and Newspapermen's nines and a volley ball contest be tween the same teams will officially open the now field, which is one of the finest in the entire city. The field was constructed at the instigation of Superintendent Angus P. Thorne of the Department of Char ities. The hundreds of unemployed men who have been given work dur ing the past several months by the Charities Department converted a large tract of swampy, wooded land into ;l splendid athletic field that contains in addition to baseball dia monds volley ball and tennis courts as well. Senate passed the House packer bill with minor amendments. Benjamin B. Odell resigned as chairman of the Denver & Rio Grande stockholders' protective committee. RADFORD B.

At the office of the State Motor Vehi cle department in State street, 185 licenses were issued during the past week, for pleasure cars alone. This figure does not include trucks, com mercial cars, motorcycles and publio service machines. The recent drop in automobile prices may have resulted in more buying, but at the local registration offices, several hundred licenses have been issued weekly since the first of the year. This weeks figures are about normal, and show that the public has not stopped buying auto mobiles even though many persons are out of work and ready money Is scarce. It is expected that the annual rush which is usually encountered about the first of July will start next week. Automobile dealers who have bought second hand cars are now endeavor ing to get rid of these machines be fore the first of the month, and many persons who are in the market for a car are seizing the opportunity to get one at a low price. Jitneymen are worried over the prospects of having their routes as signed to them by the Public Ultili ties commission, and many local dri vers have already applied to Hartford for special routes. This matter will probably be settled on Monday or Tuesday of next week when a meet ing will be held in Bridgeport. Prac tically every jitneur in the city will attend these sessions. TRUST MANY PERSONS HESITATE about naming a large institution as executor or trustees, feeling tliat it will be un sympathetic in matters of such a confidential nature. As a matter of fact we observe the utmost se crecy and affairs of a private nature- are often better guarded and handled than in a friend's hands. THE CITY NATIONAL BANK TRUST DEPARTMENT 929 Main St., Cor. Bank St. "NO FURTHER ACTION TO BE TAKEN" DAWE It was Indicated today, that no further action will be taken on the recent distribution of the Connor petitions among members of the Fire department, until the next regular meeting of the commissioners. The matter has resolved itself into a dif ference of opinion between President Samuel Dawe and Commissioner J. H. Finnegan, and bids fair to blow over without much ado. "There will be no immediate meeting of the commissioners," said Mr. Dawe this mornin.g. "There is no business to transact, and no need for a meeting. I have forgotten the petition matter." Though Mr. Dawe refused yester lay to make public the name of the man who originally gave him the petitions, Joseph Masterson, secretary of the Taxpayers' league said last night that he was the person in ques tion. Mr. Masterson claims that he is ready to hand out a lot more if anybody wants them. ZIONISTS HERE TOMORROW (Continued Frnm Page One.) The reception committee com posed of a number of the leading Jews of the city, will meet the dis tinguished guests and entertain them. Similar receptions were accorded the Commission several weeks ago at Hartford and New Haven in both of which cities considerable interest in Palestine activities was aroused by its visits. Mr. Usslshkin in his youth, became one of the leading members of the Jewish National Student's Organiza tion (Bilu) which formed the first Jewish colony in Palestine about 4 0 years ago. He was one of the most ardent followers and collaborators of Dr. Theodore Herzl (founder and first president of the Zionist movement as now constituted) as rar back as 1889, and ever since then has been one of the most energetic propagandists of Zionism among the Russians Jews. Mr. Ussishkin, who is an engineer and scientist by profession, has taken part in all the Zionist International Congresses (the supreme body of the World Organization) and was one of the members of the Actions Commit tee. In 1903, he was sent to Palestine by this committee to purchase land for new colonies and to organize the colonists of Palestine. He has been a member of the Zionist Commis sion and until his departure for America, was at its head. Dr. Schmarya Levine, regarded as one of the world's most noted orators in the Yiddish language, was former ly a member or the Russian Duma, an honor rarely accorded to a man of ' the Jewish faith. His many achievements on behalf of Zionism and its furtherance, are universally known. He has been the constant advisor and conferee of Dr. Chaim Zeizmann, president of the World Zionist Organization, and therefore, is perhaps more than any other per son, qualified to speak of the prob lem confronting the Jewish people of today, and how best to solve it. Dr. Benzion Mossensohn, of Pales tine, is at the head of the Depart ment of Education and Culture in that land, and will undoubtedly play an important role in th founding and maintaining of the much-herald- I ed Hebrew University in Palestine. This is Dr. Mossensohn's second trip to this country. His thoughtful and masterly speeches have made a splen did impression wherever he has ap peared. Mr. Naiditch is a fine type of Jew ish philanthropist and financier, who is devoting his proudest energy to make a success morally, financially and politically of the Keren Hayesod. As the chairman of its directorate, his headquarters are at London, and his work is carried on co-operatively with the head offices of the World Organization. He has only recently arrived in America, and Bridgeport will be one of the first cities to see and hear him. Hon. Joseph Barondess is looked upon as The Jewish Tribune in America. At the Peace Conference in Versailes. Mr. Barondess was a member of the Jewish delegation of the American Jewish Congress which participated in the negotiation de manding Jewish rights throughout the world. Bridgeport is very for tunate in having Mr. Barondess to come here. It was through great efforts of the local committee, that he consented to come to Bridgeport. Mr. Ruthenberg, a New York at torney of high standing, and an ac tive participant in all beneficial Jew ish undertakings, comea here as a member of the newly-formed Ameri can Zionist Administrative Commit tee, having been elected to that office at the recent convention held in Cleveland. He is a forceful orator and a commanding speaker, and will in clear and conclusive language point out the duty of the Jews to ward their Homeland.

"SALADA" TEA BUSINESS GROWS The amazing growth in consumption of "Salada" tea is emphasized by tie fact that in three of their chief cen ters triey have recently had to rebuild their plants so as to secure increased accommodations. In Boston, the Head Office, the company has already the finest building devoted to tea in America. Plans are now out for an enlargement, which wiil nearly double its capacity. Having outgrown their premises at Montreal, they .have this year erected a ten story building, 90 by 67 feet, on St. Lawrence Boulevard, which will bo ready for occupancy in July. It is said to be one of the grandest com mercial buildings In Canada. Their new headquarters in Toronto is a building with 70,000 feet of floor space. In Is'ew York Salada has just moved its headquarters to 109 Hudson St., where they have greatly enlarged premises. The three huge warehouses in Bos ton, Toronto and Montreal, owned occupied and operated exclusively by the Salada Tea Company are the three largest buildings in the world de voted exclusively to the blending and packing of tea. Salada has been before the public for 30 years and has become a house hold word throughout the United States and Canada. Large quantities are also exported to South America, West Indies, and to every country in Europe. In the United States in addition to the headquarters in Boston, there are warehouses in New Tork City. Detroit, Chicago, Buffalo, Pittsburg, Philadel phia, Spokane, Los Angeles and San Francisco.

To The Jews Of Bridgeport GREETINGS ! ! The moment has arrived for the concentration of Jewish efforts on the upbuilding of the Jewish National Home in Palestine. We begin our work at a great and tragic hour. While our opportunities in Palestine are numerous and most heartening, two-thirds of the Jewish race in Eastern Europe are living at this moment under intolerable conditions. On the eve of its renaissance, Jewry stands wounded and mutilated. It has only one hand free for constructive labor, and with the other it is desperately struggling to ward off blows that threaten it with destruction. The Jews of America are provid entially the remnant that may liberate the larger part of Israel. The lofty enterprise to which Jewry stands ommitted in the sight of the world demands the active co-operation of Jews of all classes and opinions, whose common and individual obligation it has now become. The gates of Palestine are no- longer barred from within by unfriendly government. The key is in the hands of the Jewish people. It is for Jewry to decide whether the gates are to re main unopened or whether they are to welcome the multitudes that are anxiously awaiting the hour of restoration. We call upon the Jews of Bridgeport to do their duty. We call upon you as residents of Bridgeport to see that Bridgeport is the foremost in the State of Connecticut for the upbuilding of Palestine. We expect every Jew in Bri1 Report to come to the reception Mass-meeting in honor of the Zionist Committee in America on Sunday evening, June 19th, at the Lyric Theatre.
