By MISS MARGARET WILSON, Community Wo-ker I speak in behalf of community center work Community workers are impatient with Rcprestnta- tive ood of Indiana for denouncing the centers as "hotbeds of socialism" and the use of school buildings for community dances as a waste of public money. Is it any of the business of congress to supervise the activities or speech-of those they represent? One reason that was given in the senate for cutting our appropriation was that our centers in Washington had been breeding unrest. I know of nothing that could uphold that statement, but even granting it, even if laws are broken in community centers, it is the business of the courts or 41 " of the Department of Justice to try the individuals who have broken the law. j Jt:, 4 Iff lyiCe President Atterbury of the Pennsylvania railroad, who wants the national agreements cancelled. 2 Hundred-passenger Capronl hydro-airplane which will attempt the flight from Italy to America. 3 French national anthem being played In the public square )f Dusseldorf, Germany, before Generals Moorland and Gau cher, commanders of the British and French occupational forces. NEWS REVIEW OF CURRENT EVENTS Former Emperor Charles Makes an Attempt to Regain the Throne of Hungary. ' "LITTLE ENTENTE" SAYS NO Communist Revolt In Germany Not Yet Subdued Defeat of Greeks by Kemallsts Reported Pre 8- ident Harding Moves for Solution of (Railway Problem. By EDWARD W. PICKARD. . "Tired o exile and deprivation," Charles, former emperor of Austria Hungary, made a dramatic attempt last week to regain the throne of Hungary. Influenced by reports that the Hungarians were eager for his re turn, he slipped across the border . from Switzerland, disguised as a Ty rolean tourist and accompanied by four friend's, and for a day was con cealed by Bishop Mikes at Steinaman ger. There Premier Teleky was sum moned and tried In vain to persuade the former monarch that his hopes were not to be realized. Charles per sisted in his adventure, so Teleky ac companied him to Budapest, where Ad miral Horthy, the regent, had an' In terview with him. Charles decorated the admiral and tried to cajole him Into turning over the government to him, but Horthy declared he would .offer armed resistance to any attempt to overturn the present regime, and, with tears in his eyes, the ex-ruler left the palace, saying : "Farewell for ever." Returning to Steinamanger, Charles was placed under strict military super vision and Bishop Mikes was arrest ed, charged with being the head of the movement to restore Charles to the throne. The Spanish minister at Vien na stated that Charles was under Spanish protection and asked the gov ernment for a pass to enable the ex ruler to cross Austrian territory. Three days later It was reported In Paris and Vienna that Charles had proclaimed military dictatorship at Steinamanger with himself as Its chief and that General Lehar was ready to support him with 15,000 troops. This development brought about prompt action by the "little entente," .Czecho-Slovakia, Jugo-Slavia and Rou ! mania, whose troops were placed in i strategic positions on the Hungarian !frontiers. President Masaryk sent s,n ultimatum to the Hungarian govern 'ment. saying that the restoration of ithe Habsburgs would be regarded as a casus belli by Czecho-Slovakia. ! The Hungarian charge d'affaires In Vienna notified the Austrian govern iment that Charles would return to (Switzerland. At this writing it ap pears that the attempted coup Is a dud. ' Early In the week It looked as : though the government forces In Ger many had succeeded In quelling the great communist revolt, whicft was centered In Prussian Saxony. The '"green" troops, armed with machine guns, captured the big Leuna nitro gen plant In Halle, together with many prisoners and vast stores of arms tand ammunition, and in other places they scored important suc cesses. Then the revolt flamed out iafresh, not only In Saxony, but also ,In parts of the regions occupied by the iallied troops. The American and Bel gian occupational forces were espe cially involved but both quickly gained control of the situation. In Westphalia and In Welssenfels, Sax ony, there was severe fighting and the communists suffered considerable losses. The attempt of the Reds to bring on a general' strike apparently was a failure, however. The entire situation In Germany Is rather clouded and reports emanating from German sources are not reliable. There Is little doubt that Berlin has been exaggerating the danger of gen eral revolt and the seriousness of the "battles" with the Reds In order to i SAFE TO TRAVEL IN JAPAN Official Makes Vehement Denial That Tourists Are in Danger of Be ing Mistreated. Tokyo. Reports from the United States of mistreatment in Japan pur porting to come from returned trav elers from the Orlest have caused C. Inomata of the Japan tourist bureau to Issue a denial of such charges. Mr. Inomata's statement Is con tained in a Utter written to San accentuate its need of retaining the civil military forces whose disband ment !s demanded by i the allies. For the second time the German gov ernment has filed with the League of Nations a formal protest against the occupation of additional territory by the allies; and thé officials of the al lied nations are proceeding with their plans to exact further penalties if Germany persists in Its refusal to pay 12,000,000,000 gold marks by the first of May. There is no evidence that the Germans will pay, and some of the allie3, especially the French, are con vinced their former foes are actually preparing for a new war. Marshal Fayolle Is quoted as saying fhe Ger mans are making cannon and machine guns, and especially are forwarding a huge aviation program, and that In the next conflict London and Paris will be deluged with bombs from supposed ly "commercial" airplanes. He is convinced that unless the allies take firm action at once, Germany will never carry out the Versailles treaty. The vigorous Greek offensive against the Turkish nationalists in Asia Minor progressed merrily until Eskishehr was reached. At this railway .Junction, where the Greeks were defeated some months ago, disaster again overtook them, according to dispatches from Constantinople, and after a day-long battle they were forced to retreat after losing many in killed and cap tured. The report of the Greek defeat may be exaggerated, for it emanates from Kemallst sources. Greek successes In Asia Minor are not pleasing to any but the Greeks, and possibly the British, and even the "regular" Turkish government at Constantinople protested to the allies against the Greek offensive. Italy es pecially Is sore, and relations between Athens and Rome were strained when Greece announced a blockade of Asia Minor and accused the Italians of smuggling war munitions to Kemal Pasha. The French fear that proposed occupation by the Greeks of the Dar danelles will Insure British control of that important waterway, and Rou manla has entered formal and bitter protest against the composition of the commission controlling the Darda nelles, insisting upon equal voting pow er with the Greeks and the Turks. Bulgaria will not overlook any chance to regain Thrace from the Greeks, but the latter hope to obtain the support of the Serbs In any conflict over that territory by helping them In Albania and Macedonia. (Thus, according to world diplomats, war clouds, are once more appearing over the Balkans. There was one little gleam of the sun of peace through the murk of the Irish situation last week. Sir Wil liam Goulding of Dublin, a prominent railway man. and three southern Irish unionists, conferred with Cardinal Logue, primate of Ireland, a Dundalk, with the object of securing the open ing of negotiations between the Irish republican parliament and the British government. Meanwhile there Is no cessation of the struggle between the Sinn Feiners and the British police and soldiers In the island, every day bringing its stories of attacks,- usually with bombs, on the aux iliaries and of the reprisals of the lat ter. The 'commission of the volunteer committee of one hundred which has been conducting In this country an in quiry into the Irish question has made Its report Admitting that it labored "under the disadvantage of lacking the official British side of the case," the commission declares that "the imperial British army in Ireland has been guilty of proved excesses, not in comparable in degree and kind with those alleged by the Bryce report on Belgium atrocities, to have been com mitted by the imperial German army." The report says the Irish people have had the protection of neither British nor International law and that they have been, systematically subjected to a "terror" which, however, has failed to re-establish Imperial British civil government and to suppress the Irish republic. The published summary of the report does not show that the Irish are blamed for anything except the secret execution of spies, traitors and enemies of the Irish republic who were condemned In ex parte hearings. i Francisco for the purpose of letting would-be travelers know that, contrary to stories circulated In the United States In some quarters, travel In this country is as safe as it ever was. ' In explaining the letter Mr. Ino mata said that if such reports con tinued In the United States it would mean a serious Injury to tourist trade, not only to the travel in Japan, but to the entire Orient, for the reason that Japan has in the past been one of the chief attractions to those con templating Oriental tours. . Rene Vivian!, France's special en voy to the United-States, has been re ceived by President Harding, despite the ridiculous protests of the Friends of Irish Freedom, and In conversa tions with the Chief Executive, Secre tary Hughes and other administration leaders began his task of discovering on what terms the United States will join the allied nations in restoring peace to the world. He Is here, he insists, only to listen and report, and not to make any suggestions on be half of France. For definite answers to his questions he must wait until President Harding takes up interna tional questions with his cabinet and with leaders In congress. Discussion of one of the administra tion's most serious problems that of the railways was taken up in earnest last week, and though to the lay mind it seems almost insolvable, the ex perts in such matters believe it will be solved by the interstate commerce commission and the railroad labor board working in closer conjunction than had been contemplated when the latter was created. Senator Cummins and Representative Mondell assert the machinery under the transportation act is adequate in the situation and that no further legislation will be needed. It is the position of the Pres ident and his advisers that the gov ernment should do all It can to fácil ltate the return of the railroads to former conditions, and it Is admitted that both high freight rates and high wages must be reduced. Present rates are undoubtedly retarding great ly the movement of commodities, es pecially farm 'products, and the roads suffer In revenue accordingly. Of course tlie railway unions are oppos ing any reduction In wages, asserting this would be unnecessary were it not for willful extravagance on the part of the railroad managements. The senate committee on Interstate com merce plans an investigation that shall establish the truth or falsity of the charges made by organized labor. As had been expected. President Harding appointed Col. Jay J. Morrow governor of the Canal Zone. He also named Capt. S. E. W. Kittelle of the navy governor of the Virgin Islands; Hubert Work, president of the Amer ican Medical association, first assist ant postmaster general; Charles H. Burke of South Dakota, commissioner of Indian affairs; George Carter of Iowa, public printer, and Thomas Robertson of Maryland, commissioner of patents. A public task for Gen. Charles G. Dawes of Chicago has been found by the President, who Wis ap pointed him chairman of a commis sion of eleven to Investigate the prob lems of soldiers' relief and to formu late a definite policy and program. The other members of the commission are all well known and competent men and women. With the most Impressive rites ol the Roman Catholic church and in the presence of the greatest assemblage of church dignitaries ever seen In tills country, the remains of James Card inal Gibbons were laid to rest Thurs day in the crypt of the Cathedral of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin In Baltimore. By special decree of the pope there was sung at the mass a solemn Gregorian chant previously heard only at the funerals of sovereign rulers of the church in the Sistlne chapel in Rome. Not the church alone, but all of Baltimore paid tribute to the memory of Its beloved and distin guished citizen, and as the clocks of the city tolled ten, the hour of the ceremony, every wheel shopped, every activity ceased. Sharply contrasting with this funer al in pomp and place, just as the life work of the men contrasted, was the funeral of John Burroughs, the be loved naturalist and author, who died last Tuesday on a passenger train in Ohio. On the eighty-fourth anniver sary of his birth his body was In terred at Roxbury, high in the Cats kill mountains close to the old house In which he was born, and - a large bowlder on which he often sat forms the headstone of his grave. This dean of nature writers is deeply mourned by the great and the liumMe alike of the entire nation. "We feel that Japan is being mis represented in America," the state ment says in part. "This emphasizes the importance, not to say necessity, of more Americans coming to Japan. Japan should not be judged by utter ances, spoken or printed, of preju diced or self-interested people. The truth of these utterances should not be blindly accepted, but tested by personal observation and experience. "Americans are assured of cour tesy and politeness and the goodwill of our people." Another statement made in congress was that they did not wish to pay the expenses attendant upon Again I ask, granting that we have ings, is it any of their business what Socialist speeches or whether we dance? It was even suggested the other day on the floor of the senate that we should not be allowed to talk poli tics in our centers. Isn't that amazing? Suppose, that we should initiate a nation-wide referendum to make new rules for senate discussions. What an outcry there would be. It would not be a lawful procedure, I know, and therefore impossible, but would it not be more logical and reasonable for us to make rules limiting the discussions of those who are accountable to us than that they should make rules for our meetings ? The community center is the people's machine. It works in the open. Charges Brought Against Americans by Other Peoples Are Startling. By LINDSAY RUSSELL, New York Lawyer. The charges brought against the United States by other peoples are startling. We are charged with being international meddlers. They say that Uncle Sam is a veritable Don Quixote, tilting at every alien wind mill. The satirical say that the principle of self-determination, if applied to our own country, would disrupt Negroes and Indians? Again, Europeans say that we want to foist our form of government upon the entire world; that we ignorantly set ourselves up as models of cosmic perfection. They say we are innocent, arrogant, naive and con ceited. We are charged with being militaristic. It is charged generally throughout the world that the United States is aggressive. We have taken Florida from Spain, the Pacific coast and Texas from Mexico. We have annexed Hawaii and the Philippines. We fomented a revolution in Pana ma for the purpose of taking the territory that we desired. We have as sumed an overlordship of South America through the Monroe Doctrine. We are charged with being capitalistic. Deals rather tljan ideals characterize the average American. We went to war for the benefit-of humanity and came out with humanity's gold. We Are Controlled by Bureaucratic Officials in Private Business By FRANK N. BRIGGS, Denver Banker Our Pilgrim Fathers came to this land 300 years ago to get away from too much government, from a government that interfered with reli gion, education, private business, individual initiative and persona liberty, ín recent years this country has moved farther and farther away from the fundamental principles of freedom and liberty until now we are the most rigidly governed people on earth instead of the least governed. " Private rights have small place in the United States of America in these modern days. We are supervised, interrogated, inspected, investi gated, controlled and directed by bureaucratic officials in every depart ment of private life and business. Largely because of the numerous bu reaus we aTe now burdened with such taxes as would have ppalled any generation preceding this. It was bureaucratic, not autocratic oppression and corruption that ruined Russia, and today our own country is rapidly striding with no un certain steps into the same sort of bureaucratic machine government that Russia had before the revolution there. We must destroy those governmental bureaus, commissions and boards, root and branch, horn and hoof, with their destructive, inquisitorial in terference. Americanization Is Retarded by the Foreign-Language Newspapers By DR. PAUL SHOREY, Foreign-language papers and foreign-language preaching only retard Americanization and promote clannishness. Except for a few gifted in dividuals, there is no such thing as bilingual culture. The heart, the un derstanding and the loyalty are truly at home in one language only. American schools have hitherto divisions and henceforth ought to This does not mean that they should falsify history, still less that they should foster a temper of provincial pride and contempt for the foreigner. Americans who hope that the unum" and carry over all that was our schools make fuller and more critical use of the noble American tradi tion of rational, sober, statesmanlike political preblems. And with it they should encourage the study of the selected beet in our pure, refined, intelligent, if not supremely great, American classical literature. Dr. Willis L. Tepson, Save the Redwoods League The redwood, a tall and massive forest tree 100 to 340 feet in height, has attained in northern California an age of from 500 to 1,300 years. When scientists and sages from all over the earth in after years journey to California to see this marvelous tree in the land where it has reached its highest expression, shall we say that all those trees have been logged?'

Inte eighteenth century and certain Spanish in fluences in the styles, are all disput ing the claims of the straight-line or chemise dress, to pre-eminence. The best American and French creators of costumes appreciate the adaptability of taffetas and organdies, to bouffant skirts, and the charm of a flavor of quaintness in the silhouette that Is too attractive to be ignored. Therefore, In the passing show of spring styles, among those present, and present In considerable numbers, there are such sprightly dresses as are pictured here. The frock- at the left Includes a tunic among its assets, over a much narrower underskirt a plain and In conspicuous affair that plays only a small part In the composition of the dress. The tunic and bodice divide honors In points of Interest. By means of cords about the hips and at the bottom the tunic achieves a hoop-skirt effect, and it Is decorated with flat puffs of the taffeta. The peasant waist also - employs these puffs as a Spring Hats IT SEEMS that this spring has fav ored us with a greater wealth of beautiful millinery than can be re called for many years. So many new materials have been added to those that have been long established as be longing to lieadwear, that there Is an unending variety in the displays : lines are graceful, colors pleasing. One makes a little journey In quest of new hats with a disposition to buy more than are needed, for they are as nlluring as fairy tales that never grow tiresome, with new and unex pected chapters added to those we are already devoted to. It is consoling to reflect that prices are not quite so high as they were a year ago but they are Btlll high enough, and this Is no fairy tale. Materials and other costs of production have not yet .reached a pre-war level, but they are settling. In the meantime whatever else fate may deny "her, every woman is en titled to a new spring hat. She will Bnd among the displays a few at least and perhaps many, that enhance her good looks, for there are shapes for every face and type and colors that are subtly flattering. It is worth while to look carefully for them. A group of summer hats is shown here in shapes that have proved very generally becoming. At the top a round-crowned, rolling brimmed straw Attractive Ba. A pretty bag of cretonne In a soft. misty blue effect Is long, rather than broad, like so many knitting bags. The curious part of It is the top is at tached to a frame like that of a purse, fastening with a clasp. The bag Is made of two good-sized squares of the cretonne and the frame, which Is rath er larger than that of most purses. Is fastened to the bag across one cor ner. Or, rather, one corner of the bag Is cut so that It will fit when shirred pon the frame. It is easily made and . :l&v wu fie TV l í . ' t finish for the collar. The Introduction of a dainty vestee of lace and row velvet ribbon laced across front are the means by which t. bodice rivals the tunic A dark and a light color are us to make the sprightly dress at tbe right, and ribbon plays a star rr' In Its composition. Taffeta, ribbon with a fancy edge makes the side plaitinga that are emphasized on the tunic by placing them on a light-colored back ground, which might be of crepe da chine. The slip-on bodice, with double frill of plaited ribbon about tbe waist, has short sleeves lengthened by means of the plaited ribbon and finished with a tie of narrow ribbon. The same ribbon forms a girdle with a half wreath of little blossoms set across the front. Nothing more original or prettier has made its appearance So far than this useful frock, but it bas many competitors in a spring that Is rich In Its variety of attractive taf ietas. Are Tempting hat Is very artfully curved as to Its brim and handsomely embroidered on the crown. It features a large orna mental pin as a decoration and is in tended to spend its days in the com pany of an equally classy veil, having Irregular dots scattered over a fine, but open mesh. Just below it at the left a lovely leghorn effaces Its upper brim and crown In favor of strips of ribbon frayed at the ends and droop ing over the brim's edge. It is a model that speaks tbe language of youth. At the right a matronly hat suggests the Napoleonic era in shape. It Is of straw with embroidered flowers strewn, over It, and a wide ribbon drops over the top and sides. At the left a brilliant hat of satin and highly lustrous braid suggests a coronet and is a stately affair suited to many ages. ' Crepe de chine and ribbon make the elegant hat that comes last in the group, although it is the brightest star In this galaxy.' The faille ribbon so cleverly' used to form the brim is in a darker color than the crepe de chine crown. A very hand, some tassel clings to the crown.

If you have wondered why good looking sweaters are offered at such attractive pricf.s look for the answer in these new pilo coats; they are going to be smarter this summer than sweaters for general wear over skirt and blouse sport costume.
