SCOBEY TAKES CHARGE
OF BIG GOLD SUPPLY.
Washington, March 20. Trustee
ship for a third of the world's gold
supply changes hands today, when F.
E. Scobey of San Antonio, Texas, suc
ceeds Raymond T. Baker as Director
of the Mint. Gold assets of the Mine
service institutions aggregate $3,000,
000,000. The world gold supply is
estimated at approximately $9,000,
000,000. When Mr. Scobey assumes
supervision of the Government's coin
age institutions tons of bars and gold
and silver and coins of all denomina
tions will come under his charge.-
According to a report completed to
day by Mr. Baker, the total assets of
the Mint service institutions approxi
mate $3,676,000,000 stored in mints
at Philadelphia, Denver and San
Francisco and the United States Assay
Office at New York. Distributed
among the four there are $2,829,000,
000 in gold bullion and $260,000,000
in gold coin; $42,000,000 in silver
bullion and $262,000,000 in silver
coin; $280,000,000 in paper currency
and $3,000,000 in minor coins, nickels
and pennies. Much of the enormous
stock of gold is accounted for by
the tremendous influx of that preci
ous metal into this country since the
war. Tfce Mint is required to purchase
the yellow metal as it is o'ffered, un
less it comes from Russia.
Mr. Baker said that the coin de
mand was larger during the calendar
years 1917 to 1920, inclusive, than
during any period in the history of
the service. During the war period
approximately 2,693,000,000 separate
coins were struck off by the mints,
while the output for 1919 alone was
839,000,000 pieces, or 446 per cent,
larger than in a normal pre-war year,
'such as 1915.

to handle the poor situation for many

to be highly commended lor the fact
that never has a call been made for
people in distress but that it was
generously met. It is a trait that
we who are in social service work
appreciate more than we can say.

beter to enjoy the scenery. Later came
the engagement and marriage, and
Glotzbach left the driving wheel.
The San Francisco Examiner today
gives Glotzbach 's reasons for leaving
his bride in New York?
"I'd rather be a chauffeur in Cali
fornia than to dwell forever in the
palaces of Babylon," he said.
It seems that Glotzbach was forced
to let another man drive his wife's
"It would drive any man craiy to
back among the cushions and
jT every 4ime he felt the back
lash of the transmission, when all it
needed was a real mechanician," the
reporter quotes. "
Neither did Glotzboch enjoy break
fasts in bed. Nor did sitting up night
after night through the mad scene of
"Lucia" appeal to an ear attuned to
the hum of a smooth running motor.
The reporter says Glotzbach told
him there had been no quarrel; that
the chauffeur husband just "escaped"
when his bride was not looking; that
he would not go back.
Mme. Matzenauer, it is said wants
her husband back. There is talk of
compromise from New York, but it is
not listened to, says Glotzbach.
After this marriage Mme. Matzen
auer said her first marriage, to Fer-rari-Fontaria,
failed because of ar-
tists' temperament. She wanted a
"man," she said.

Sisters Ask Medium to Search
Spirit Land for Ambrose Small
Toronto, March 15. The sisters
of Ambrose Small, Canadian theatri
cal magnate, failing to locate their
brother by all other means since his
disappearnace two years ago, have
arranged with a medium to extend
their search to the spirit world.
Small disappeared from Toronto
on Dec. 2, 1919, the day he deposiled
a $1,000,000 payment to him on t'ae
sale of his chain of theatres. A
world-wide search followed, but ah
clues failed. A kidnapping plot was
suspected though never proved.
Small's secretary, John Doughty,
who disappeared a the same time,
was caught nearly a year later in
Portland, Ore., and was said to have
admitted the theft of Victory bonds
from his employer. Efforts to im
plicate him in Small's disappearance
were fruitless, and the case remain
ed a mystery.
LONG SKIRTS SHOWN

have just been brought over by Mme.

expert, began yesterday, and will con

For some time rumors have reach

now accepted in Paris, but the Amer

them, considering them less attrac

frocks. But the new models ar
