IB Bedlam, Near Fist Fights, Mark Attack on Defense of Ruler's Property Chancellor Marx Backs President's Letter Against Seizing Ex-Kaiser's Estates BERLIN. June 10 (AP).

Bedlam broke loose in the Reichstag today when Chancellor Marx defended President von Hindenburg against Socialist attacks for hi recent pronouncement against confiscation of the former rulers' property. Fist fights threatened between the Deputies of the right and left parties. The Socialists' criticism was voiced by former Chancellor Hermann Mueller, who charged the President with violating the Constitution in abandoning the nonpartisan attitude, prescribed for the chief executive. (Hindenburg in a recent letter to Count Frederick von Loebell, monarchist leader, said seizure of the property of the former Kaiser and the members of his family and of other former German rulers would be "an attack on the constitutional foundations of the state and a violation of the fundamental laws of morals and Chancellor Marx, addressing the Reichttag. reiterated that the Cabinet could not approve the referendum for confiscation the former ruler's property set for June 20, because it the fundamental r-ghts of private ownership.

Favors Compromise He demanded speedy action on the government's compromise settlement bill, which would create a special court for settlement of the former rulers' claims. It is not expected, however, that the compromise bi'I, which is the same as that proposed by the Luther Cabinet, will be acted upon before the referendum is held. An offic'al party declaration issued by the Socialists regarding Hin-denburg's letter reads: "Is it right for the President to stamp the 12.500.000 people who signed the referendum petition as lawless end not moral? It it right for the President, who is supposed to reireee.H everybody impartially, to take s'des and offend millions of his own. people?" The declaration closes with an appeal for the voters to turn out at the referendum so that "the common weal may triumph over the Princes' robbery." But an Expensive Ueniedy Every Sunday 100 motorists are arrested for speeding by motorcycle policemen in suburban villages. The policemen lie in wait on side roads, or in clumps of bushes, and dart out from time to time to make arrests.

As big game hunting, these tactic3 rate high. As a means of preventing speeding, they are not so good. Motorists will not speed when a policeman is in sight. One motorcycle policeman in plain view is worth a dozen in hiding, if the safety of the roads, rather than the collection of fines, is the end i nview. Chicago Tribune.

New Mexico have produced skeletons of early amphiblians and reptiles it seems fair to deduce that the animals whiih trekked across the site of the Grand Canyon were also of these families. This deduction seems borne out by the structure of the footprints. The tracks discovered so far by Df. Gilmore belong to fourteen distinct kinds of animals. Perhaps the most interesting is a track indicating an eight footed creature, the eight feet making a diamond formation.

There is no particular reason to suppose that the owner of these eight feet belonged to the vertebrates. rather than to tho crustaceans, or some other family.

The best opinion west and east will regret the form of Iowa's protest, but it will not misundersand Iowa Republicans may sem to New ork a peculiar 'lot, but there is going to be a lot more like them unless Congress wakes up to the situation which is steadily crystallizing in the west. In revolt it ia not the moderate who leads, but the radical, and if level headed 'citizenship and responsible leadership in the east do not join with the level Tieaded citizenship and responsible leadership of the west, they have only themselves to blame iff radicalism wins control.

We hope the east understands that this will serve its interests as badly as ours. The main proposals for agricultural legislation demanded by the most representative and influential opinion in the west are supported by as reputable judgment to say the least, as the objections raised against them. The demand for satisfactory and substantial measures is reasoned and determined. ing by a good deal, but only those who regularly contribute for the support of their party. Add to those who pay dues the sympathiz ers and hangers on, and the total Communist strength would be much larger, possibly five or six times.

The Socialist party also is not growing as compared with many years ago. About ten years ago the Socialists polled some 150,000 votes in a New York city election. The party now has as dues-paying members 25,000, a gain of 7,000, as compared with two years ago. Whether this rate of recovery during the last two years continues remains to be seen. On the other hand the American Federation of Labor has 2,878,297, as compared with 2,866,979 members in 1924.

OLD TOWN HALL 'T'HOSE who believe that the historical marks of Delaware should be preserved are pleased with the statement that the plans to restore the Old Town Hall are being prepared by the architect who is expected to report shortly. The specification will soon be ready for the builders. The sum of $50,000 is available for the work. The financial response should have been larger. Many another community and in a different part of the country, would have looked upon a building like the Old Town Hall as a precious heritage.

The Old Town Hall has been the scene of many an important public i function in our history- If it has not been appreciated as it should be there are other instances of more appreciation in the State as, for example, the Old Drawyer's Church and cemetery, in this county, at which the annual yearly reunion services were recently held. The manner in which the church building is maintained and the beauty of the surrounding cemetery are a credit to the friends of Old Drawyer's who have done well and set a fine example to others. And happily in n-any other parts of the State these traditional and historic places are being cared for in the right way. WHITTEMORE TO PAY THE PENALTY JUDGE EUGENE DUNNE, of Baltimore, has decided to end the career of the notorious Richard Reese Whittemore, arch criminal and bandit, who has been sentenced to death. Recently this young man was convicted of brutally murdering an aged prison guard, who left a widow and helpless children.

Not long ago he was tried for a double murder in Buffalo, New York. The jury disagreed. There was some talk of making him face a jury in New York city, but Maryland justice got him. Those who wished to see this fiend properly punished thought Maryland justice more likely to reach him, though Whittemore was pleased to go to Baltimore, as he said it was "home." He evidently imagined that his native city, instead of being shamed by its product, would glory in having such a criminal and would free him. And sentiment was played upon to affect the jury.

It did not work. Thus it is that -recently Whittemore has been tried for three murders. The strange thing about his career is that he was not hanged long ago. From early boyhood he has been a persistent thief and crook, seemingly immune from those things presumed to influence persons for right living. He commit, ted all kinds of crime and justice was so faulty that he escaped his deserts for year after year.

CARROLL AND OTHERS Xl'HILE objecting to what he termed a too severe sentence imposed upon Earl Carroll, tho theatrical producer of bathtub fame, a contributor to a New York newspaper throws light upon justice as administered in some of the courts of that benign city. Carroll was sentenced to a year in the Atlanta penitentiary for perjury. If some think this punishment is too severe others think it not half severe enough. Perjury as a specific offense assails the very foundations of justice and therefore of civilization- Such a crime should not be considered lightly. And though sentenced Carroll has not yet gone to prison.

The appeal rcute in New York is long and winding. Under the new theories of pen-o'-OK', according to the objector referred to, a serious offense does not necessarily imply a severe sentence. No doubt that is true under the theory, and if some of these reforming penologists had their way, society if possible might be punished for a crime, and not the criminal. The writer, however, mentions that while Carro'l was being sentenced in an adjoining room in the building two convicted swindlers who had defrauded their creditors got a suspended sentence, which practically means no punishment at all- In another room a mail box Copyright, by Th Mc.Vaught Syndicate Inc.) manently hore.

Intellectual Dances (Boston Christian Science Monitor) It has been observed in England that youths and maidens dance together at social functions, and that intervals occur between dances that are now more or less idly and even frivolously employed. These intervals it is proposed to fill with brief, interesting and informative talks on matters of public concern by authoritative talkers. Intended to induct the young ladies into an interest in politics, and bring out eventually a larger feminine vote, something must evidently be done to entertain the young gentlemen, whose restlessness during the talks would otherwise make it difficult for the young ladies to listen.

"PATRIOT'S CREED" UCH interest was manifested among the young in the essay contest under the auspices of tne National Americanization Commission of the American Legion, 200 essays having been submitted, 180 of which number being from Wilmington. It is rather odd that there were no more competitors from the remainder of the State, as prize winners in various essav contests have been numerous in the lower counties. he two leaders this time are both girls from Wilmington and from the same school, Ursuline Academy. It is quite a feather in the cap of that excellent institution to have both winners.

The third prize goes to a boy from Roselle. just outside the city preper, and the fourth, or honorable mention, is a girl of this city. In th order named the winners are Jennette Gerry, Johanna Miller, Jaines Campbell and Mary Agnes Hjris. The contest this year was unique, providing for the "Patriot's Crfced" being limited to 125 words. Mfes Gerry's contribution is indeed admirable and is well worth rememberings.

We are sorry for it because we do not think it is go-j ing to Iowa, the Iowa farmer, or the Iowa business man. or the Iowa workman to have Mr Brookhart in the Senate. It not going to add to, but on the contrary, subtract from the ability of the Senate to legislate wisely. But whatever our regret at the form in which Iowa's discontent has expressed itself, we suggest in advance of the comment we may expect in the east that Iowa's discontent 's shared pretty generally throughout the mid-west and tnat Mr. Elrookhart's vote is a portent the leadership of the P.epubUcan party will do well to take serious'y and unaerstar.amgly.

Mr. Brookhart was not the beneficiary of the best opinion in Iowa. He profited mainly by what unreasonable and unjust in the farmers' revolt. But when the east attempts to dispose of the phenomenon on that ground or as the New York World puts it, "evidently Iowa Republicans are a queer lot" it misses the significance of Brook-hart's success complete'-. Brookhart won not because he is the congenial champ'on of the agrarian and labor extremists, the so-called radicals ofjowa, but because thousands of moderate men women felt that their needs were given little intelligent consideration and little sympathy and that an emphatic and unmistakabe protest was called for.

There is nothing peculiar about such a protest. It is a frequent even-in our political history. It is entirely-human and by no means without logic and practical value. That is. the highly organized interests of the east, which patronize us so smugly, will de well to understand that there is a poliUcal tide the west that is rising, and something Is going to be carried away unless it is met by something more substantial than the generalizations which offered the west in place of remedial action.

The west is not impressed with tbe dogmatic assurance on economic law Which the east expects us to accept. We have conditions to deal with, and we have little stomach for challengeable theories which do not conceal sectional prejudices and shortsighted self-interest. The west is full of fighting American spirit, and if it sometimes makes its mistakes it has yet to discover that the east is infallible. The west 1V1 Favorite Stories By HIVIX S.

A ton and a half of slabs of sandstone and shale, containing the "fingerprint" records of animals that crawled about the earth perhaps 2.j,000.000 years ago, have arrived at the Smithsonian Institution from the Grand Canyon. They are the fruits of a collecting trip made by Dr. Charles W.

GUmore, of the Nationall Museum under the Smithsonian, on a grant from the Marsh Fund of the National Academy of Sciences, and constitute one of the foremost collections ot fossil footprints ever made. Dr. Gilmore took them from three different levels in the Grand Canyon, the lowest of which is 1800 feet below the rim and 400 feet below any fossil footprints that have hitherto been found. This layer is called the Supai Sandstone. The animals that crawled across it when it was soft sand on the surface of the earth disappeared and their tracks were covered over by sediment that grew slowly through the eons till they were 400 feet below the surface of the earth.

Across this new surface, a mud ly one, other animals crawled, some leaving deep impressions close together, indicating heavy squat-legged creatures. others leaving the sperficial unbroken trail of the worm. The process of sedimentation continued through more millions of years, covering over and preserving thee tracks of animals long dead, until the surface of the earth had grown 500 feet above this level and sand was again being deposited. And now still a third group of animals left their footprints behind them, and the earth piled up at least 900 feet more to the present top of the Canyon In addition to the depths which have been eroded off and the extent of which we shall never know. The Colorado River, in curving the Grand Canyon, has exposed the successive layers containing the footprints, and on a trail leading down the steep canyon wall they were discovered.

The middle layer is called the Hermit shale, and the third layer, the Coconina sandstone.
