Carden for IG years has caused him at last to confess killing a soldier at Fort Oglethorpe, Ga.— for which crime Bort Long is serving a life sentence. Federal Jud^e E, Marvin l’n-derwood announced Carden had admitted killing Charles L. Earle on February 24, 1918. After telling his story to the judge, Carden said “my conscience has hurt me. I cannot bear to think longer of Long serving time for a crime that he did not commit.” Steps will be taken to obtain a pardon for Long. GENEVA. May 29—LD — The United States offered the world assistance in the reduction and control of armaments today and Soviet Russia advocated the complete abolition of armaments in proposals made before the international disarmament conference. The American suggestions w* re made by Norman H. Davis, United States ambassador-at-large. The Russian proposal was made by Maxim Litvinoff, foreign commissar for the Soviet Union. Litvinoff proposed that the conference be made a permanent body to safeguard the security of all nations and safeguard peace. He said that the conference now faced the problem of whether it would continue or collapse. He said he believed that the present non-reconciliation of divergent opinion made it impossible to find a solution of the problem of disarmament and declared: “Armed peace is only an mistic—it is a negation of basic principle of the Kellogg ti-war pact.” Then he suggested complete nunciation of armaments. The Soviet officials painted the world as seeking goals of national policies and as sometimes undertaking hostilities within the borders of neighboring states. In suggestion that the conferences he made a “permanent conference of peace” he warned the warld that this machinery is necessary because there are dangers of a bloody war “or rather a series of wars which include all continents and all humanity.” He suggested: “This transformed organ should have as its goal the prevention of war and consolidation of security. It should reply immediately within the measures of its forces to S. O. S. calls from menaced states which should be helped materially, economically, financially, or otherwise.” President States Future Plans May Be Changed As Occasion Demands HOUSE DEBATES SILVER Senate Speeds Cuban Treaty; World Court Approval Goes Over Again WASHINGTON, Instead of taking the rest of the worked overtime May GO.—f^P) a holiday with city, congress today and at President Roosevelt Leads in Paying Homage of Nation Today On (By The Associated Press) the once blood drenched the end had something to show for it in house progress of the silver bill and senate committee approval for the new Cuban treaty.

He added his hope that Germany will see its way clear to resume’ disarmament negotiations with the other powers.    • The British draft allotted Germany an army of 200,000 men-Answering the question, “whither are we going?” Davis expressed the conviction that the problem of disarmament was susceptible lo a practical solution. “It is remarkable,” lie said, “the considerable measure of accord that has actually been reached vrtlh respect to the ttconical aspect of armaments aud the kind of a disarm Ament convention that would be affective. “It is the view' of the American government that a compensatory advantage (in security) would be in fact obtainable from a mutual reduction and limitation of armament s.*• homage today to its soldier dead. The president, arranging to leave his busy desk around midday for that Civil war meeting ground, will stand as the first democratic chief executive to speak at the cemetery which marks where the greatest thrust of the Confederacy met the stone wall of Meade's blue-clad ranks.

In Washington, however, a1-, though the executive branch ob-1 served a holiday, both houses of congress rejected talk of recess in order to carry on the drive; for adjournment. Hundreds of ceremonies of tribute, jxirades and the placing, of wreaths, were arranged throughout the nation. The gleaming white marble sepulcher of the Unknown Soldier in the national capital marked one focal point of these ceremonies. There the blue of the Grand Array of the Republic, the gray of the Confederacy, and the khaki of the World war will mingle. President Roosevelt, before leaving the capital, received word from King Leopold III of Belgium, that America’s dead lying in that country were not for ten and that flowers would placed on their graves. I Clyde Barrow went to his death grabbing for a sawed-off shotgun, but before he could bring his weapon into play effectively he went down with approximately 60 bullet wounds in his body.
