A LONDON, Aug.. 1. SCATHING denunciation of New York's Hundred" was the feature of an interview given by Mrs. "Diana" Watts, the woman who lias rediscovered the secret of Greek physical culture and incidentally the whole science of hu- man movement. Those who have seen or listened to Mrs. Roger Watta .will need no description to recall ,her in- finite grace of movement, her scin- tillating charm of discourse, for she possesses one of those personalities which can never be forgotten.

Loud was her praise of all tha charming people she had met, and of their appreciation. But when itcama to discussing New York and its fam- ous Four Hundred, Mrs. Watts had a different story to tell. _ Scores New York NEW YORK Is she told me.
