Morning Call, The (Newspaper) - June 24, 1929, Laurel, Mississippi A. M. Edition FULL EIGIIV HOUR LEASED UNIVERSAL SERVICE THE MORNING CALL The Weather Partly cloudy Wednesday and Thursday; probable light showers. Vol. 104. LAUREL, MISS., WEDNESDAY, JULY "ONE DAY AHEAD" AFTER WICKERSHAM, HE'S SILENT St. Louis Crew and Plane, Still Going Strong Will Talk Peace When Railway is Clear Again AND PROTECTION May Evict Chink Of- ficial Unless He is Out Soon RIGA, July is determined to avoid war, but insists that the Russian sec- tion of the Chinese Eastern railway be released by China; that personal security and freedom is guaranteed to Soviet employees on the rail- way, and urges that a commit- tee be established at Harbin to settle the railway dispute without delay. These provisions are incor- porated in the latest Soviet answer to the Chinese note re- ceived jesterday. ROME, July 23.------Italy is will- ing and anxious to cooperate with other powers in aiding a peaceful settlement of the Chinese-Russian dispute. The Mussolini government has accepted the -invitation of the American Secretary of State Stim- son to help prevent war coming in China. Flieifs Make New World Continuing, Try For 300 Hour Mark Senior Air Pilot Finishes Million Miles of Flying Working Agreement With America is Desired CREATES FUROR ABOUT EUROPE Naval Disarmament Talk With U. S. is Admitted CHICAGO. July Hamil- ton Lee, senior air mail pilot of the United States, today com- pleted miles of flying. Lee, who is employed by the j IloIIeHing system, has been flying for 1C years and has never bad a serious crash and less than a doz- j en forced landings. He is con-1 fiidercd an authority on all bran- ches of and military, recognized as among the most expert fliers and held in highest esteem. He is known as the veteran pilot of America. They May Smoke Chairman Out of Present Position NANKING, July Nan- king government stands ready to submit its dispute with Soviet to the League of Nations or signatory powers of the Kel- logg pact. Foreign Minister C. T. Wang, after conferences with president Chiang Kai-Shek, announced that the government is enter negotiations looking to a peaceful solution. MOSCOW, July a week has elapsed since the Soviets broke off relations with China, the Chinese Legation is showing little hurry about moving out except to give a round of farewell dinners and parties. The Chinese charge d'affaires says he is waiting for instructions from Nanking about leaving. If he lingers "iuch longer the Soviet authorities .nay evict him. The Soviet press scorns the in- voking of the Kellogg pact signa- tories in conference to settle the dispute. The papers ask how fair trr-atment can be expected from England, France, Japan, and the United States when these powers "fomented" the Nanking generals into seizing the Chinese Eastern lailway. BERLIN, July is not seeking the role of mediator in -the Chinese-Russian dispute. De- spite reports here from Washing- ton Wilhelmstrasse has not ye; been asked by any power to act as her arbitrator. Germany is maintaining strict neutrality and any intervention to help settle the Far East conflict independent of other great powers is not even being considered, Uni- versal Service is informed. Germany would be reluctant to act as sole arbitrator since her in- trcsts in both countries, and espe- cially m China, arc far more ex- tensive than generally exposed. Thefceling expressed here in quasi' official circles is that Russia's re- fusal to accept French mediation is no indication that Russia has rejected all steps to avoid open warfare. American Border Men Lose One Man in Battle Thousands Assemble at Field and Greet Flyers DEMONSTRATION RECORD RESULT Great Plane Lazily Soars Along, High Altitude Music and Melon At Powers Meet EL PASO, Texas, July Mexican border patrolmen tonight took extra precautions following the fierce batlc of four patrol- men with a band of smugglers last night, the second in 48 hours. In last night's battle two Mex- ican smugglers were killed and three were wounded. None of the patrolmen were injured. At the same time more than 200 gallons of liquor, two automobiles and three trucks were seized. One of the trucks seized bore the name of a local wholesale pa- per dompany and federal author- ities began an investigation into its use. The company officials declared that a negro driver had taken the truck home with him last night following the last de- livery. In last night's battle thc pa- trolmen were "tipped" that a delivery was to be made across the Rio Grande and advised not to be too hasty in flushing the cov- ey. The first group of "runnert." came down to the river and sens- ing, perhaps, they were watched, attempted to draw the officers out of hiding but without success. Soon the second group appeared and the battle was on. Chief Border Patrolmen C. C. Horseley said tonight that last night's experience showed that the smugglers were running "in sections" and have used as many as 10 to 12 high-powered motor cars, on both sides of thc in maneuvering to outwit the pa- the trim monoplane, piloted by ST.

And, if Dale "Red" and Forrest O'Brine keep their St. Louis-Robin aloft 300 hours it will have been Dales' left nind foot of a rabbit and Forrett's bunch of four-leaf-clovers, that "did" the stunt. On the other hand the wives of the fliers and their ground crew scout the rabbit foot and four-leaf clovers saying their'record-breaking flight is due' to: Ability to sleep on a two- inch inflated mattress behind a pounding mptor.

An- toine Houdon's famous bust of George Washington, thc sde of which was announced this after- noon, has been bought on behalf of John D. Rockefeller, Jr., Universal Sen-ice learned tonight. Sought after for many years by collectors and museums, thc bust was sold by Godfrey Locker- Lampson to J. I. McGurk, notec American art expert and agent. The rumored price was McGurk, interviewed tonight, declined to state for whom he was By ROBERT WELLS RITCHIE LONDON. July mier Ramsay MacDonald has abandoned his proposed visit to Washington and all Europe is agog. The Premier's mission to further Anglo-American ami- ty and looking toward the two great English speaking nations taking a world lead ill the reduction of naval ar- maments, has been indefinite- ly postponed. On top of this sensational news, which was learned today from the lighest authority, I am also able ;o announce exclusively that Pre- mier MacDor.ald will deliver a speech in Parliament tomorrow in which he will reveal that the total of his activities so far as he has engaged in any with Ambassadors Dawes and Gibson in the matter of preliminary cllort to reach a working agreement with America in the matter of disarma- ment. Whether or not that speech will reveal that MacDonald's decision that his American visit at present is impractical I am not allowed by thc nature of my confidential in- formation to say. 'There ia every probability that the premier will intimate that it is; impossible to make the trip this year because of the pressing ex- igencies of the two most impor- tant items on the agenda of his S R y foreign program. If the Premier advances this excuse it will be a diplomatic ges ture covering thc real reason. His political enemies can take it or leave occording to West- minster lobby will take it with their tongues in their cheeks. Tate Building, Former Pride of Laurel, Gives Way NEW( STORE PLAN SOON TO ARRIVE When Building Will be Started Reportb J. C. Coates Plans and specifications for the new Kress building on the corner of Magomla Street anil Central Avenuo are due to arrive Au- gust 1. J. C. Coats, owner and supervisor of the building, statej that immediately after the plans are rcccivej construction of thc new building will be started and pushed forward as rapidy as pos- sible.

Wirker.shnm, chairman of the National Law Enforcement commissions, remains imper- turbably calm. He appears to be enjoying hugely the con- troversy that has been arous- ed by his now famous prohi- bition letter to Governor Roosevelt of New York. His office has been besieged with callers and his mail has been laden with requests seeking clari- fication of amplication of his views. These he has either ignor- ed or answered jovially, as he did today with a merry twinkle in hia eye: "I have nothing to say." But whereas Wickersham is pleasantly unmovablc, some of hii office workers have had a case of jumpy nerves ever since the pub- lication of the letter. Whenever Wickersham appears they hedge about him cautiously, endeavoring evidently to sidetrack any discus- sion wjth interviewers. The othei momberv-of -thn_ commission as complacent as Wickersham, re- plying to nil requests about the letter with thc admonition to "sec the chairman." It is cLvisus th-t thc commis- sion has discussed the letter, but in a jocular vein and not in a way that indicates any alarm or anta- gonism whatever.
