Wafhint'on. June 30.—Admiral
Thomas McGrtidtr. United States
naval attache at Paris, will be pnb-,
licly reprimanded if h's speech in
Paris Sunday was correctly quoted 1
by L'Hotnme Libre.
While this was stated emphatical
ly at the navy department Monday
it was quite evident that Secretary
B*-nb believes Admiral McGruder
was misquoted when he was made to
aay: "Whatever comes, the United
States will always come to the aid of
France if France should be attacked.
Our ambassador could not tell you,
but I can. My words do not need
It was pointed ost Admlnrf Mc-j
Grtider has already stated that he
was grievously misquoted. In view
jf the fact. Secretary Denby will
make no inquiries at least for tbe
present. It is confidently believed
'hat Admiral McGruder will disavow
the quotation n a formal commun
ication to 'he secretary.

Admiral McG ruder actually had

more serious than that of Rear Ad

Discussion of the McGruder inci

The ruling is operative pending
settlement of disputes now before the
board, and It it is later decided that

pay back to their employes the
amount to be deducted after July 1
under the present decision.
Today's decision also provided for
the continuation "of the rule® estab
lished by or under the authority of
the United states railroad adminis
tration. until such 'irne as such
rules are considered and decided up
on by the board.", with the farther
exception of relies agreed upon an

become effective on July 1.
By an order of the board Apr 1

tional agreements, the railways were
given until July 1 to negotiate indi
vidual rales and agreements with
their own employes. In case of dis
a.,r-ement. ^he dispute was ordered
remanded to the labor board. The
flood of disagreements which pour
ed into the board this week and the
delay in hearing them brought up
the prospect that many roads would
be left without any working agree
ments after July 1. The old rules
therefore continued pro ton.
