IT'S* A Windsor's Visit to U, S. Cancelled by Labor Dispute Former King Fears It Would Arouse Feelings of British C. E. BEDAUX QUITS Duke's Agent, Criticized AFL, Withdraws From Office by Sf UAftT HAMMdCK An expot£ of the clever ichemet thai tulnttte 'American people out of million* of doltan yearly, No. 35. "Burying Hie Dead" J. J. Tyrone wns quickly accepted in Mountvale. His genial personality, his interest In church nnd civic affairs, nnd his outward appearance of opulence hntl opened many homes to him. One day he was a dinner gticst of Mr. nnd Mrs. Stephen Gallant, an elderly couple. <£ "Mountvalo," Tyrone remarked, "Is a delightful place," "We like it, of course," said Mrs, Gallant. "We have made our home here for many years." "It has such a wholesome atmosphere of hospitality," said Tyrone. "We always welcome new people," said Stephen Gallant, "If they are the right kind. We're hoping, Mr. Tyrone, that you are planning to make Mount- vale your home." "I'll make my home anywhere that I can be of public service," Tyrone replied. "With that in view, I've been studying the needs of Mountvale." "And what have you found?" Mrs. Gallant asked. "There may be several things. I have studied local conditions and consulted statistics. One thing, at least, is very apparent. Moutvale needs a modern cemetery." "I've often thought so," said Mrs. Gallant. "Yes," continued Tyrone, "a real modem 'Memorial Park' would be a decided improvement. The statistics of births and deaths and a study of available cemetery lots, seem to point to such a project as really necessary." "That is very true," Mr. Gallant agreed, "but probably no one here has the money, time and experience lo develop it." Tyrone seemed thoughtful for a moment. Then he said: "You know, this situation seems like a challenge lo me. Let's not discuss the matter with anyone until I have time to consider it." The Gallants agreed, and there the matter rested. About a week Inter, Tyrone again called at the Gallant home. This time he carried a flat package from his car to the house. After the greetings were over, Tyrone said: "1 havt a surprise for you." He opened the package and displayed n beautiful colored drawing. "That," lie said, with a smile of satisfaction, "shows the general view of the new 'Mountvale Memorial Park.' " "Beautiful!" exclaimed Mrs. Gallant. "Then you're really going to undertake it?" "Yes," Tyrone informed them, "1 hnve accepted the challenge. 1 shall make the 'Memoiral Park' a reality—if I can ge the co-operation of the right people." "Oh, you'll get the co-operation," Mrs. Gallant predicted with confidence. "Whole-hearted co-operation." Tyrone then explained the plan. A co-operative organization would be launched. In fact, he had already incorporated the organization, and had obtained on option on a suitable site for the cemetery, at his own expense. "It now depends," said Tyrone, "upon the matter of public co-operation. I shall be glad to devote my time, en- orgy and experience. Everything else rests with the willingness of the people to buy the cemetery lots." "But won't the lots be terribly expensive?" Mrs. Gallant asked. "The beautiful entrance, the building, the drives and fountain—that will mean a great deal of money." Tyrone smiled. "Later on," he said, "the lots will be expensive, of course. But you and your friends, who have done so much to make me welcome, shall have an opportunity to buy not one, but many, lots!, now at a very low price. Later on, you will be able to resell them at an excellent profit." "I'm afraid we havn't much money available right now," said Mr. Gallant. "We have it invested in stocks." And, in reply to Tyrone's questioning, he told what stocks they held and the number of shares of each. "Here's what we can do," said Tyrone. "Those are all good stocks. Even thought they are low at present, some day they will recover. I'll do this for you. I'll accept the stocks at par, on payment for lots. In that way you can make a very generous profit." The prospect appealed to the Gallants. So much so, that they invested heavily in the project. Their friends, too, followed their lead and soon the total of sales reached well into the thousands of dollars. But before actual operations began, Tyrone drove off in his car, and was never seen in Mountvale again. And investigation showed that all available funds had departed with him, and that nothing remained to the lot purchasers except an option on a cemetery site. PARIS, France.— tip)— A member of the Duke's suite said Saturday thnl a feeling within the duke's entourage that United States officials took a "luke-war attitude' "toward his American tour was one of the reasons for his decision to "postpone it." Bcdaux Is "Out" NEW YORK.— (/t>) —In a harried mood, Charles E. Bcdaux, self-ousted guard of the postponed American tour of the Duke and Duchess of Windsor, voiced the belief Saturday that Windsor might visit this country during the Christmas season. Bcclaux said: "If the duke comes, we must find someone to take core of him. I'm afraid ho won't come now, although he might a little later—during the holidays." Tour In Cancelled PARIS, France—(/P)—The Duke of Windsor Friday night postponed his trip to the United States for the study of housing and industrial conditions because of "grave misconceptions" over his motives. Announcement of the postponement came less than 15 hours before the duke, his American- born wife and a staff of seven were to start fro a 37-day tour of America. It was issued in a hotel bar through Percy Philip, president of the Anglo- American Press association. Neither the duke nor any member of his party was present. Decision to postpone the trip on the eve of its proposed beginning, it said, was reached "with great reluctance" beci>«i!<» , of 4'S™ ve misconception* which havt arisen and missUtements which have appeared" about motives and purpose of the lour. No new date for the journey was set. The duke had held a three-hour conference with Lee Olwell, press agent; Lieut. Dudley Forwood, the duke's equerry, and others. No Axes to Grind The statement added that "the duke emphatically repeats that there is no shadow of justification for any suggestion ho is allied with any industrial system or that he is for or against any particular political or racial doctrine." (The Baltimore Federation of Labor last Wednesday "warned" organized labor not to be "taken in" by "slumming parties professing to help and to study labor." It called Charles E. Bcclaux, who had been arranging the Windsors' United States tour, an "archenemy of labor." Bedaux, a few hours before the Paris statement was issued, cabled the duke from New York asking to bo relieved of all duties in connection with the tour "because of mistaken attacks upon me here.") Even close associates of the former British monarch were kept in doubt regarding his final decision until the last moment. Earlier a terse statement issued by Lieutenant Forwood said "there is absolutely no change in our plans." The United States embassy was not informed of the final announcement until after it waa issued. Factors Cited British sources said the decision to |X).stpone the trip probably was based upon two factors: 1. The duke desired not to create any i>ossjble strain on Anglo-American relations and felt th;it any trouble over his visit would offend Great BrUiin generally. 2. The fluke considered that in view of the resolution of the Baltimore Federation of Liibor the time was not ripe for a visit. ; During the day servants had packed the Windsors' trunks, leaving the couple only enough clothes to fill the hand luggage for (he voyage aboard the liner Brcman. They had been scheduled to leave Paris on the boat train at noon Saturday. Press "J'liiys Up" Resolution Tre French press published the Baltimore labor resolution under screaming headline's such as tliat of ParisSoir: "Dulse ami Duchess of Dindsor declared undesirables by American workt'iV uniun.s." English newspapers also reported the resolution and referred to the Windsors' recent visit lo Germany as "slumming parties" of "uninformed sentimentalists." Windsor was guest of honor at a luncheon given Friday by Sir Eric Phipps, British ambassador. It was announced iis a "private affair" attended b.v 20 British and French friends. , DuclK-sb Disappointed The duchess, who formerly lived in Baltimore, was described us "deeply disappointed" by the change in plans. She had been looking forward to her first trip to the land of her birth since her marriage to the former king. Where the couple intended to turn next remained a secret. Stai* WEATHER.

Painstaking Scientific Tests Measure Mental Development of Dionne "Quints' 1 Their Handicap of Premature Birth Overcome by Girls It Develops That Miss Yvonne Is Brightest of the Lot SCIENTISTS SAY SO An Interesting Account of How Science Measures Bab\es EDITOR'S NOTE: This Is the ' sixth "of seven articles telling for the first time what science has learned about the Dionne quintuplets. The articles arc based on scientific papers read before Canadian and American scientists at a • special meeting In Toronto, (Copyright, 1937, NBA Service,Inc.) The first step In learning to walk Is learning to crawl. Here's Annette perfecting her crawl stroke at the age of 11 months. Next—oops! And it's hard!—you have to walk on all fours,- like a bear. Tills is Cccllle, accomplishing the feat at 12 months. The first time you stand up you need help, naturally. Getting the help, and standing nicely, is Annette, aged 13 months. By BRUCE CATTON NBA Service Staff Correspondent TORONTO, Ont—In case you have ever wondered, Miss Yvonne Dionne is the brightest of the five famous quintuplets, according to tests mode by psychologists.' An. elaborate study of the quiritup-1 lets' mentaKjdeyelopment, has been [ made by scientists from the University of Toronto. One of the series of studies aimed at finding out all the pertinent facts about the quints, its conclusions arc summarized in a paper written by Dr. W. E. Blatz, director of St. George's school for child study, in Toronton, and his assistant, Miss Dorothy Millichamp. Dr. Blatz and Miss Millichamp have studied the quintuplets over a period of two yours, applying the tests devised by Dr. Arnold Gesell, famous Yale University psychologist, along with other tests. Their report, to repeat, is that although the sisters are almost identical, physically, they arc very far from being identical, mentally. The way in which the scientists set out to determine the quints' rating in the world of childhood makes an interesting story. When you set out to measure the mental suiture and progress of a baby whose chief concern in life is gelling its big toe into its mouth, you can't adopt the same tactics you would use with u school-age child. Even when the child reaches the age of two or three, the job of finding out how much of a mind it has and wliat it is doing with it, is a bit difficult. Examinations of the ordinary kind are out. A Fine New Game Dr. Blatz and Miss Millichamp, who started to work on the quints shortly before those engaging young ladies had passed their first birthdays, took along as equipment a few reams of paper, a set of unused sheets of charting paper, and a whole suitcase full of toys. The quints decided that this was going to be a fine new game, and en- 'terecl into the spirit of the thing with zst. First of all, the psychologists wanted to test the quints' motor development —their control over their muscles. By getting the answers to a lot of questions that sound unimportant to the layman, they would learn whether the girls' equipment of nerves and muscles were functioning in the proper teamwork. So, from time to time, they sought to find out things like these: Could a 15-month-old quintuplet walk backward, if properly coaxed? Could a quint at the age of two pile six blocks up in a reasonably straight tower? (The quints could, did, and hated to quit.) At 30 months, could a quint stand on one foot? At regular intervals over a period of two years the psychologists performed such tests, tabulating their findings and reducing the answers to a series of graphs. Next came the matter of adaptive behavior, which the quints accepted as something special in the way of a lark For it was here that Miss Millichamp unstrapped her suitcase of toys. Just Like Games Miss Millichamp would unstrap it, that is, if the quints didn't get hold of it first. For the five maids from Callander quickly learned that taking these tests was just like playing games with delightful toys, and as soon as she showed up with her suitcase they would cluster around her, impatient to get the thing away from her and (Continued on Page Two) "Give me something to hang on to (nnd a rattle to whack U with; nnd I can do nicely!—Annette standing almost alone at 16 months.

Brunei 1 Brings Giant Vegetable to Star Office Saturday Okra, says the dictionary—"A tall malvaceous annual widely cultivated in the Southern United States and the West Indies for its mucilaginous green clops, used as a basis of soups, stews and so forth." But the dictionary doesn't say anything about okra growing 16 feet 4 inches high. And that's th size of an okra stalk W. E. Bruner, htad of Bruner Ivory Handle company, brought to The Star building Saturday. It grew in the garden of his suburban home on No. 67, from a seed planted last spring. With its roots on the curb, this okra stalk reaches up into the "Hope Star" sign painted on top of the newspaper building—looking more like an elm tree than a garden vegetable. J.R. Page Improves From Gun Injury Slight Gain Noted Condition of Wounded Nashville Man The condition of J. R. Page, 67, of Nashville, mysteriously shot at Mineral Springs Wednesday morning, was reported as "slightly improved" Saturday at Julia Chester hospital. "Mr. Page is resting comfortably and apparently is slightly improved," said the hospital report. As far as could be learned Saturday, there had been no arrests made in the case, which is being investigated by Sheriff Clarence Dildy of Howard county. He Throws -Snake-Eyes' and Gets Minimum Fine SYLACAUGA, Ala.-(/P)—Dice shooting got Claude Blackmon in trouble and then got him out—with a ?2 fine. ''Get out your dice," the recorder told Blackmon in police court. "Whatever you shoot will be your fine." Blackmon turned up two ones—the lowest points in dice. 'Phil Thomoson, charged along with Blackmon with engaging in a fight after a dice game, rolled a two and a six in court and had to dig into his pocket for $ 8 to pay his fine.

I <} i\ Hitler Is Not to Act for Chinese Quick Denial Follows Report German Will Be "Umpire" BRUSSELS, Belgium.-W-The Cri* nese delegation said Friday night that a report Chancellor Hitler of Ger-f many might act as umpire in the Far Eastern conflict was circulated to "im* pede" work of the already deadlocked Brussels conference. The conference was given additional cause for pessimism when Saburo ICun rusu, Japanese ambassador to Belgium, said "it is highly doubtful if Japan will accept mediation from the nine* power conference." Delegates reached an impasse ovep the wording of a peace not to Japan. The Chinese statement, issued after Cheng Tien-Fong, Chinese ambassador to Berlin, arrived in Brussels, said there was "not a single word of truth" in the Berlin report. "It is quite obvious," the commun* ication said, "the report has been cir* culated with the ulterior motive of pon* fusing the opinion of delegates to the nine-power conference and impede its work."
