Thomas McClelland, deputy district attorney, sent a summons to Miss Acker and at the same time assigned 1 investigators to learn whether Valen-1 tino committed bigamy, according to j the California law* when he married Winifred Hudnut, lancer and film art director, known professionally as Natacha Rambova, at Mexicali, last Saturday. Los Angeles superior court judges have stated informally that such a marriage as that of Valentino and Miss Hudnut is bigamous. Miss Hudnut’s name was intro-1 duced into the divorce trial through j the identification of a picture of her and Valentino. The first legal action was taken by Miss Acker. She filed a suit for sep arate maintenance declaring Valen tino had not supported her. She as serted that when she married him he had nothing; that partly through her efforts he gained fame as an actor and then he failed to support her. On a cross-complaint, Valentino filed a bill for divorce, declaring that Miss Acker had deserted him. He made the declaration that he “wanted her and loved her;” that he would ; take her back if she would go, back to him. I ' According to Douglas Gerrard, film director and groomsman at Valen tino’s marriage to Miss Hudnut, the bridegroom entered into the cere mony in good faith.

Chamber Commerce Washington, May 17. —Speeches de voted to the discussion of the tariff, the Allied debt to the United States and the reparations question as af fecting this country’s foreign trade outlook occupied most of the program for the second session today of the tenth annual meeting of the Chamber of Commerce of the United States. Reviewing financial conditions in Europe, which he said, by creating thq disadvantage of high exchange rates, already had seriously curtailed this country’s foreign erade, John R, Delafield, of New York, former chairman of contract adjustment bu reau of the war department, told the gath' ,ing that payment of the inter est on the Allied debt would greatly add to this hindrance. Payments of the principal, he said, "would still more seriously aggravate the situa tion.” "It is for us,” Mr. Delafield said, "to do all in our power to overcome this handicap and certainly not to do anything to increase the disadvan tage under which we labor. What is the amount of these foreign debts to us, repaid as they will be over a long series of years, beside our pros perity and the well being of our peo ple? Even the amount of these is small compared to the great increase of wealth our country would make in a period of great economic pros perity.” Discussing general tariff questions, Commissioner Culbertson of the Unit ed States Tariff Commission, warn ing of the ill effect of tariff discrim inations between nations, advocated that this country take the leadership in calling an international conference to consider! the “advantages which would accrue to all nations from the application of the principle of treat ment and the open door to all co lonial possessions as well as to a nation. “Every tariff bargain,” Commission er Culbertson said, "Must be to a greater or less extent a discrimina tion also. And every discrimination with what ever phrases it is dressed up and po matter Jiow clearly it comes wfithin ,a nation's sovereign rights, is felt by the foreign countries which are discriminated against as an unfriendly act. The world can not afford to increase the number of unfriendly acts.” Speaking on the relation of war reparations to American " business, Silas S.

LAKELAND AD CLUB TO PUT ON A SPECIAL WEEK OF GOLDEN RULE BARGAINS COMMENCING MONDAY, JUNE 5 The Golden Rule sale days of the Lakeland Ad Club, a division of the Lakeland Chamber of Commerce, have proved such a success that the Club has decided to enlarge the scope of activities by holding a special sale week beginning with Monday, June 5. Details of the program were gone in to by the Ad Club at a meeting held at the Chamber of Commerce head quarters Monday evening, presided over by W S. Moore, chairman. Those who have been instrumental in put ting over these Golden Rule sales are enthusiastic over the results and have pledged themselves to co-operate to the fullest extent in making this week of June 5 a memorable one. On Wed nesday of the week, June 7, there will' be held the first farmers' auction sale, when the farmers of this section will have the privilege of bringing to Lakeland any articles they desire to dispose of at auction. The sale will be conducted for the Ad Club and without expense to the farmers, by auctioneer B. H. Harnly- All the merchants are planning to make that week not only a business getter, but something that will create sociability and acquaintanceship. Certain pre miums are to be awarded, this detail being left in charge of a special committee consisting of H. K. Clonts, J. W. Larsen, Omar McDaniel and Lonnie Wright. The publicity com mittee is headed by W. H. Ott, with W. S. Myrick and Omar McDaniel and representatives of the local press. Chairman Moore called a joint meet ing of these two committees for 8 o'clock tomorrow night at the Cham ber of Commerce headquarters. While special emphasis is to be placed on the week of June 5, this does not mean that the Golden Rule sales days are to be neglected. To morrow will see another invasion of Lakeland by buyers from all sections of Polk county, and special provisions have been made to give genuine bar gains by the club members- Some striking lessons have befen learned from Golden Rule Day, the most im portant of which is that the public is undoubtedly the best of bar gains. In this connection it is both interesting and educational to know that certain rules and regulations and that a code of ethics govern Golden Rule day, the members of the Lake land Ad Club having subscribed to the following: We pledge ourselves to present a REAL BARGAIN to the buying pub lic on every sales day. We will respect the EXCLUSIVE right of every merchant to sell his own bargain at his special sales day price, and we will not at any time sell an article at any but our usual price on the day that article consti tutes one of our competitor’s bar gains. We will not knowingly do or say anything to injure the success of our competitor’s bargains. We will speak only the truth in our own advertising, and we will not knowingly give any false impressions concerning these bargains. We will abide by the decisions of the committee in charge of these bar gains without quibbling and without complaint. At any time we are called upon to serve on the censor committee, we will perform our duty honestly and fearlessly during the time we are members of it. We pledge our greatest efforts to ward making the Golden Rule Sales Day a success, and toward any other progressive plan for the upbuilding of the business of this community; and we promise our utmost in service to the buying public. Standards of Practice for the Lake land Advertising Club We pledge ourselves to remember that advertising is, and should be, first of all, an exponent of the square deal, and that It is only when busi ness men put the interest of the buy ing public first that they take the best advantage of Ihelr opportnnltlea. We will play fair with our broth- LAKELAND.
