ASKS FOR OPEN

Ambassador Child

at Lausanne.
Lausanne. Nov. 25. (By the As
sociated Press.) Richard Wash
burn Child, chief American spokes
man at the near eastern conference,
amazed the other delegations at
this morning's sessions by reiterat
ing the insistence of the united
States upon the open door policy
in Turkey. He read the aide-memoire
delivered on Oct 30, to Great
Britain, France and Italy, and said
that the American government and
public supported this policy.
Lausanne, Nov. 25. (By the As-
apparently are aware of the silent!
drama which daily is being played
in the ranks of the Turkish delega
tions to the near east conference.
A majority of the European dele
gations are convinced that Ismet
Pasha, leader of the Turkish dele
gation, is genuinely seeking a rea
sonable peace, because Ismet real
izes that Turkey needs tranquillity
and friendly relations with Europe,
and above all, capital with which
to develop Turkey, for Turkey is
poor in money. "
Silent Observers,
With Ismet are several men,
some of whom keep in obscurity,
watching his every- move. These
are silent observers, and represent
either the bolshevik element in
Turkey or are pronounced reac
tionaries who hate any concessions
to non-Mohammedan Europe. They
have been likened in conference cir
cles to the commissaries of the
French revolution, who spied on
the revolutionary leaders like
Robespierre and Danton and who
possessed such sinister power. The
secret French commissaries had
the guillotine as their weapon.
The Turkish . weapon is - not
known but some of the observers
here affect to feel that Ismet must
watch his step in dealing with
capitalistic - and Shristian - Europe
and America. The apprehension is
felt by some of the European dele
gates that the powerful men be
hind the scenes will force Ismet
into making demands which cannot
posibly be accepted. - ' - -

Justice Kemp, and after the cere

tioning their destination. The
bride at the time of the issuance
of the license stated that she was
a widow. "
Professor Tiernan recently re
signed his law professorship at
! Notre Dame university prior to the
divorce case hearing.
'The first information that the
professor intended to marry again
came from Waukegan, 111., yester
day, when it was reported that the
professor and a young woman had
been refused a marriage license
there because the-HUaois. law f or
bids remarriage of divorced per
sons within one year.- '

At South : Bend, Mrs. Augusta
Tiernan, who had lost her suit to
prove Harry Poulin, a haberdasher,
was the father of her third child
and who allowed , the professor to
obtain the divorce on a cross-com
plaint, Thursday announced she had
been "tricked" and that she and
her former husband had planned
to remarry quietly. She declared
she would. take steps to reopen the
divorce case.
Throughout the Poulin case,
Professor Tiernan took a legal at
titude, and with his wife declared
they were trying, to make Poulin
accept responsibility for his alleged
acts.
The professor and his bride did
not disclose their plans to Justice
Kemp. Mr. Tiernan merely told the
official that he was a lawyer by
occupation.

DRY LAW IS
DIG PUZZLE
IN AMERICA
Prohibition Mess Worse
, Than Ever, Lawrence
; Says.
BY DAVID LAWRENCE.
(Copyright, 1922, by The Argus.)
Washington, D. C, Nov. 25.
The prohibition mess is getting
worse than ever. Nobody is satis
fied with, the present situation
neither wets - nor drys. President
Harding's announcement that, the
cabinet had discussed the entire!
suDject ana mat an appeal to iue
conscience Of the American people
on the subject of law enforcement
is pending constitutes the -first di
rect result of the last election. Toe
significance of Mr. Harding's
course in bringing the matter to
public attention at this time is a
realization that the machinery of
enforcement is not only inadequate
but ineffective without a sympa
thetic public sentiment. Many of
the foes of prohibition argued
again and again that a law in
volving the morals of the country
ought not be put on the statute
books until sentiment is practically
unanimous. Experience with li
quor laws in the several states for
a generation has proved that pub
lic sentiment makes a law effective
or a dead letter according as the
people choose.
Law Is Jinlllfied. j
The .federal government is aware
that in many states public senti
ment has virtually nullified the
law. Dry -leaders are constantly
urging the government to do some
thing about it Recent elections in
the so-called wet states have made
matters even worse. How much
enthusiasm for instance have the
state officials in New Jersey for
law enforcement when - the state
voted for a wet' candidate by a big
majority? And how discouraging
is the task of the federal officials
who realize that they haven't , the
moral support of the local authori
ties. .After all the police powers
of the nation are vested in the
states and cities and even the most
ardent friend of prohibition will
concede that without the support
of the states the federal govern
ment faces an almost hopeless task
in ridding the country of "boot
leggers." The constitutional
amendment contemplated concur
rent jurisdiction of the states and
the federal government . It was
hoped that both would be exerted
for the enforcement oi tee taw.
But some states have by one means
or another shirked their tasks.
Massachusetts in the last election
Toted against a bill to help the
federal government enforce prohi
bition. : The movement in the wet
states is not at present aimed to
secure a return of the saloon the
outcry is for "liberaliaationV
namely the making of wines and
eeers. -v'-;-?
So Respect for Law. .
In accordance as this .sentiment

RUMOR CHAPLIN
AND POLA NEGRI
ARE BETROTHED
Famous Film Comed
ian Wont Affirm
or Deny,
Los Angeles, Cal., Nov. 25. A
story published today by the Lbs
Angeles Times that a report of the
engagement of Charlie Chaplin,
motion picture comedian' UL 'Pola
Negri, Polish screen tragedienne,
was current among the Hollywood
studios, was neither denied nor
confirmed by Chaplin, while Miss
Negri denied herself to interview
ers. The report was said to have
kept the studios excited for three
weeks and the remainder of Holly
wood talking for several days.
The comedian is said to have met
the tragedienne first when he tour
ed Europe more than a year ago, and
since Miss Negri came to Los An
geles for film work recently, Chap
lin is reported to have been in her
company as often as the conven
tions permitted.
Chaplin told newspaper men any
announcement must come from
jj Negri.
Cant Say Tea er No."
"I can't say 'yes,' he declared.
dua ii i saiu no, lqiub. ul uie i
position it would put her in."
Chaplin is a native of England and 1
was a music hall comedian in Lon
don before entering motion picture
work. Miss Negri is a Polish coun
tess. According to the Times, Madame
Negri cancelled an engagement to
give a representative of that news
paper an interview when she re
ceived intimation of the subject he
wished to discuss. I
The Chaplin-Negri romance, the
paper continues, "had its beginning
when Chaplin toured Europe last
year.
And when Negri recently arrived
here and met Chaplin she wag said
to have exclaimed:
"This is what I have looked for
ward to ever since I started." !
"Almost Inseparable"
They are said to have been "al
most inseparable", since she reach
ed Los Angeles. -
When the Times' reporter sought
to reach the actress to ask her
about her reported engagement to
the comedian, a personal represent
ative said:;
"She hit the ceiling when the
subject of the talk was mentioned."
Chaplin was reached and inter
rogated with considerable diffi
culty. . After at first, declining to
discuss his . personal- affairs, he
said: i
"I can't say 'yes.' "Any such an
nouncement must of necessity come
from her. She is a gentlewoman
and a foreigner. Don't you see?
She does not understand American
ways in affairs of this kind. . She
would resent my making a. state
ment And if I said 'no' just look
at the position in which that would
put her.
9o Crime," Says Charlie.
Later Chaplin commented :
"Marriage is no crime."
" The' comedian is said to have
moved recently from a small cot
tage into a house of many rooms
and to be occupying it alone.
There have been many reports
in the last year that he was to re
marry. He was formerly the hus
band of ' Mildred Harris, screen
actress. ,- . :
