SOVIET MINISTER ATTACKS THE PLANS OF POWERS AT LAUSANNE. ALLIES ARE SCORNED AMERICA DEMANDS RIGHT OF PASSAGE THROUGH STRAITS OF BLACK SEA. Lausanne. A strong American plea for freedom of the straits, with the right of warships to pass to and from the Black sea, was an outstanding feature of the Near Eastern confer ence, which received from the entente nations a d 'finite project for the fu ture control of this great world wa terway. The Russian plan for the ex clusion of all but Turkish warships from the straits received a bad blow by the allied proiMisals. Richard Washburn Child, the Amer ican ambassador, adopted the broad standpoint that the very interests of the countries bordering on the Black sea made It imperative to keep the straits open. The I'nited States In common with every commercial nation wished access to every free body of water In the world, and America would not be satisfied if Iter ships of war could not pursue their peaceful er rands wherever American citizens and merchant craft were nccorded that privilege. The entente nations presented comprehensive plan for restricted opening of the straits which was de signed to prevent uny one body from acquiring mastery there; they sug gested demilitarization of the entire straits territorial zone and proposed the appointment of an international commission to guarantee observance of freedom of the straits. George Tchitoherin, the Russian soviet foreign minister, ridiculed the allied proposals, saying it meant re sumption of International rivalries, but Ismet Pasha, for Turkey, said that he considered the entente pro posals suitable for further discussions. The allied proposal for the regula tion of the Dardanelles which meant the perpetuation of trouble there. In stead of peace, would impose on Rus sia the necessity to "arm, arm, arm, declared M. Tchiteherin at the confer ence during his comment on the en tente plan. " The text of Tchitcherin's statement issued by the Russian delegation, quotes him as adding: "And that means complete collapse of the Washington naval disarmament treaty. "Russia welcomes the idea of the Washington conference to which, un happily, she was not Invited. We will be happy to participate in any univer sal accord on general naval disarma ment, but opening the straits us pro posed would make naval disarmament impossible." M. Tchiteherin said he Interpreted the allied scheme as directed against Russia, and declared that Russia wanted peace, but If a struggle were imposed on Russia would never capit ulate. Eight Hurt in Train Wreck. Spencer, W. Ya. The Rev. D. L. Blakemore of Washington. D.

DECISION IS IN DOUBT GREECE HAS CEASED TO BE IMPORTANT FACTOR. AN MOSLEM PR:DE BALKS AT TAK ING POSITION LOWER THAN GREECE OR MEXICO. Lausanne. A review of the Near Eastern conference shows clearly that the negotiations have reached a point of danger. The question of capitula tions, or special privileges enjoyed by foreigners in Turkey, which was tak en up, may make or break the confer ence, and this is so because an adverse decision on capitulations may so wound Turkish national pride that the Turks may don their fezes and go back to Angora. Everybody realizes the extreme deli cacy and danger of the negotiations on capitulations. The Turks have re jected all suggestions of the powers, Including the United States, thut tin; special privileges enjoyed by foreig ners In the past shall be retained more especially any attempt to have foreign consular courts try cases Involving for eign residents or foreign property. Both Ismet Pasha and Dr. Rizu Nur, plenipotentiaries from Angora, say that they would resist any attempt to place Turkey on a lower international standing than smaller and less import ant states, like Greece und Mexico; they would Insist on complete admin istrative independence. Dr. Riza said: "We hear that the powers, including the United States, are thinking of substituting 'Juridicial guarantees for the hateful expression capitulations.' "In so fur as foreign tribunals are concerned, this will not do; it means the same thing under a different name, and we object to a transitory period, whereby Turkey would be supposed gradually to emancipate herself from the ancient regime of capitulations. We want complete freedom now." The leading European powers hnve received important help from Japan in their struggle to keep the foreign courts in Turkey. Japan herself suf fered the same humiliation as Turkey and sympathizes with the Turkish at titude. The Turks argue that complete ad ministration sovereignty is perhaps the most solemn article of the new Ottoman national pact. A prominent Turk said: "If Americans and other foreigners do not like to be under the authority of our Turkish courts, then let them stay away from Turkey. If a Turk were arrested in New York he would be tried before an American court, and not a murmur. The same situa tion should exist in Turkey." Befire Tchiteherin arrived at Lau sanne, the Turks were inclined to favor admitting foreign warships to the straits If they entered one at a time, but the soviet delegation has stiffened the Turkish position and Is met is now standing for exclusion of all worships from the straits at all times, except Turkish vessels, and de mands absolute control for the An gora government Approve Design of Naval Aircraft Washington. Approval of all ele ments of design and construction of the airship ZR-1 being assembled at Lakehurst, N.

U.S. PLANS OWNERSHIP POSTMASTER GENERAL AqvO- CATES POLICY FOR GOVERN MENT TO OWN BUILDINGS. Washington. Postmaster General Hubert Work has just given an ac counting to the people for his first year ns the head of the government's biggest and most important single bus iness institution postofflce depart ment. A survey for the year shows that the postal service has been maintained on a high standard of usefulness to the people, that it has been conducted ef ficiently and economically. Postal service, due to fixed charges not con trolled by the department is conduct ed at a loss, the cost of operation ex ceeding receipts, but for the last year, as shown by the annual report just completed, a reduction of $20,571,896 In the annual deficit has been ob tained. While the Increase In the weight and volume of mails carried and handled is represented by an Increase of $21, 362,266 In postal receipts, the expen ditures were only $780,835 In excess of those for the preceding year, and this was accomplished In a business cost ing $545,644,208 for the year. The postmaster general points out that notwithstanding these accom plishments, the deficit Is still large and without revenues increasing in greater ratio to expense It Is difficult to pre dict, a muterial reduction. The in crease In postal receipts for the year Is attributed to the greatly Improved business conditions, compared with a year ago. Postmaster General Work is advo cating a policy under which the gov ernment shall build and own its own postofflce buildings where they are absolutely necessary and thus save the large amounts paid to lessors cov ering Interest charges on borrowed money, high rates on investment charges, indirect payment of taxes and the profits realized by the lessors. The postal service Is growing steadily and Its requirements, according to Mr. Work, are difficult to meet with out constant recourse to enlarged quarters, which are secured on a ren tal basis at an expense much greater than that which would result from government ownership and construc tion. The postmaster general is against erecting postoffices at cross road towns, but he favors building in cities where such buildings will ob tain for economy and efficiency. The postofflce Is the point of con tact between the public and the serv ice. The postmaster is the represen tative of the department on the one hand and the people on the other. At the close of the fiscal year there were 799 postoffices of the first class, 2,778 of the second class, 10,860 of the third class and 37,500 of the fourth class. The number of fourth class offices de creased by 212, due to the extension of rural delivery service which supplies a superior service to its patrons. After Fashionable Bootleggers. Detroit.

ALLIES WOULD COLLECT CUS TOMS AND PARTICIPATE IN INDUSTRIAL ENTERPRISES. Hamburg. The program of M. Poln care, the French nremier. for snhmis- sion to the Brussels conference, com - prises six definite measures of allied control to be accepted by Germany In return for a three-year moratorium, according to information received from a Dutch banker who is prominently as sociated with high financial circles In France. The informant states that the plan already has been submitted to the Bel gian government The six prere quisites to a moratorium are declared to be: tirst, tne erection of a customs boundary eastward of the occupied ter ritory, with the establishment of imxeu customs commission, based on the number of troops and allied offi cials in the occupied area. Second, participation by allied cap! tal in all chemical and metallurgical factories In the area having more than 500 employes, to the extent of not less than 45 per cent and not exceeding 75 per cent Third, allied control of Indirect taxes in the occupied territory. Fourth, special measures against the flight of German capital abroad, with taxation of such funds In foreign money values. Fifth, stabilization of the mark through an International loan secured by the Reichsbank's gold reserve. Sixth, an Increase in coal deliveries by 25 per cent and an increase in re parations wood deliveries 20 per cent According to information received the Belgian government objected that the amount of the customs income was doubtful, while the cost of the allied control organization would be great, and also that the proposed boundary would be harmful to the trade of the western powers and apparently aid former neutral states. The Belgians, according to reports, favored the cen tralization of customs control in Ber lin. Munich. Thousands of persons as sembled in five mass meetings held by the National Socialists of Bavarian Fascisti as an announced protest against the "threatened seizure of the Ruhr by the French."

MENT PROVIDING FOR ABOLI TION ELECTORAL COLLEGE. CHANGE UNNECESSARY ANOTHER PROVISION CALLS FOR CHANGE IN INAUGURA TION DATES. tvusiuugion. aiemoers or the new Progressive bloc in Congress got into I. f a r - action a few days ago, but at the very outset -ran into White House opposi tion. Led by Senator Norris, Republican, ieorasKa, Dioc members sitting on the Senate agriculture committee ob tained a favorable report from that committee for a constitutional amend ment providing for abolition of the electoral college and for direct elec tion of the President and Vice Presi dent and for abolition of the long pe riod of time usually elapsing between a congressional election und the regu lar meeting of the new Congress. Such an amendment forms one of the planks in the platform adopted by the bloc at its organization meeting. Opposition on the part of President Harding to any such change in the constitution was expressed by a White House spokesman soon after the Sen ate agriculture committee resolution was laid before the Senate and signed to a place on the calendar of business. Some administration lead ers In the Senate likewise voiced 1 their disapproval of the amendment and it appeared that any efforts by the bloc to press the proposal might bring on a fight which would test the power of the Progressive faction. The proposed amendment would provide specifically that "the choice of eaeh state for President and Vice President shall be determined in a general election of the qualified elec tors of such states," thus permitting voters to cast their ballots directly for President and Vice President. The vote would be canvassed by the Sen ate and House meeting in joint ses sion, each state being given as many votes for this purpose as it has sen ators and representatives. If such a canvass by states should disclose lack of a majority, then the President would be chosen by a ma jority vote of the House "from thd persons having the highest numbers, not exceeding three, on the list rt those voted for as President." The vote for vice president would be can vassed in a similar manner, except that in event of no choice by a major ity of the voters, the Senate would se lect that official us between the two persons receiving the largest number of votes. The committee in reporting the amendment resolution through its chairman, Senator Norris, pointed out that the proposed system might result In the election of a President and vice president from different parties "a matter of fundamental justice we ought to be protected by law in tak ing . , . should we desire to do it. The amendment would further pro vide that the terms of senators and representatives should begin the first Monday in January following the bien nial congressional election and that Congress should meet each year on that date. This would wipe out the session of the old Congress after the biennial elections. Another provision of the amend ment would be to change the date of inauguration of the President from March 4 to the third Monday In Janu ary. White House officials in presenting President Harding's views on the pro posal represented the executive as feeling that constant changes in the constitution were unnecessary, and in some cases unwise, Mr. Harding, it was said, regarded the procedure un der the constitution whereby a new Congress does not meet for more than a year after its election as one of the wisest steps taken by the nation's founding fathers, as it allows passions to cool. , Italy to Club Criminals. Rome. Criminals will be clubbed and sent to hospitals instead of being Imprisoned, In the administration of justice under the Fascisti regime in the province of Allessandria, Dr. Pa- mlndo Sala, the secretary, said in an address to malefactors summoned be fore him. "Hereafter the Fascisti un dertake the administration of justice adopting' different laws from those of the judicial authorities," Dr. Sala said. Whoever is guilty will not be sent to prison, but to the hospital after be ing clubbed." Turkey Hurls Threat Lausanne. In general the Turks do not consider the situation at the con ference hopeless and believe that fur ther negotiations are possible, but some of them went so far as to say that if a break came, Turkey was ready to continue the war, suggesting that she could make the straits un comfortable for the allies, seize the Mosul oil fields, retake Mesopotamia and perhaps get some effective help from the Moslems in India and Egypt through a general Islam uprising.
