Soviet Russia oners far more advantages to persons seeking easy and quick divorces than perhaps any place in the world. Under a new-decree a divorce can be had within five minutes at a cost of $1.30, provided both parties agree. If. however, one objects, the case must be referred to the courts. Misconduct does not constitute a valid reason for the annulment of marital ties, but desertion, religious superstition, excessive religious piety, incompatibility of temperament and divergence in political views are held to be sufficient causes. Pope Bars Women Failing to Observe Dress Rules Home. ilore than 100 women have been refused permission to attend papal public audiences in the last few days owing to the failure to conform to the dress demanded by the pope.

Acting Secretary of the Treasurv Oarard Winston, in ad- dressing the first meeting of the new board of tax appeals, announced that a revised estimate shows a surplus of ?r0.O in nnwnivt sit the end of the fiscal year 3023, recently com- year meneed. This is double the estimated Teheran. Teheran and its suburbs were put under martial law until such a time as the political situation becomes normal again. Agitators against law and order will meet capital punishment. The papers which have been inciting the movement against the government will be suppressed and no public meetings will be permitted. Nature of Crime Rare. One paper says the government should have come to this decision sooner and saved Persia from sliame due to the murder of MaJ. Robert Imbrie, United States vice consul, by a mob of anti-foreign fanatics. The nature of the crime is very rare in Persian history. A similar crime, committed more than a century ago practically enslaved Persia to Russia. The editor of another paper regards the crime of the mob as an act which will strengthen the government's hands in putting down priestcraft, with its Imnibug miracles. Persia, he says, will never forget Maj. Robert Imbrie and the work he unknowingly did for the future good of the country. Priestcraft Blamed. Evidence revealed shows that the two Americans were accused by leaders of the mob of having poisoned the "Sacred Fountain," causlrg the death of some women and children. A special man was put to work to propagate this Lie, and it was he who, while running after the carriage in which the Americans were escaping, told the shopkeepers this lie- and called them out to wreak vengeance.

In Young Killers Give Up Hope of Liberty in Guilty Plea. Chicago. Casting from them all hope of freedom as easily as they killed for a thrill, Nathan F. Leopold, Jr., and Richard A. Loeb risked their lives un the outcome of their last great experiment with human nature. Today they stand no farther from the gallows. The door behind them is closed. Chief Justice John R. Caverly of the Criminal court is the subject of the final dramatic experiment of their lives. Their pleas of "guilty" have placed their lives in his hands, Clarence S. Darrow, chief of counsel for the defense, formally pleaded his two clients sruiltv. Called to the bar, both youths said they realized j what that plea meant. j Means Prison or Death. j And it means that the trial must i have one of these results : A sentence of death. A sentence of life imprisonment in Joliet. A sentence of imprisonment of not less than 14 years and not more than 73. Alienists will take the stand for the defense. They will testify as to ' the mental condition and degree . of responsibility of the college honor men i . But the defense is not insanity.
