LORD INVERCLYDE He has at last done just exactly what his divorced wife wished. He has just divorced her. That may sound strange, because the lady known as June in the world of the theatre obtained a divorce from him in Reno in 1931, disdaining; all thoughts of the $10,000,000 he inherited as grandson of the founder of a shipping line. But June was worried about the whole affair. She knew Scotch courts would not recognize the Reno decree on grounds of cruelty and hoped that "Lord Inverclyde will play the gentleman and divorce me so I won't be prosecuted for bigamy if I marry again." So his lordship has just "played the gentleman." He divorced his already divorced "missus" on grounds that she was unfaithful in September and October, 1932. June denied all that, but now, at least, the bigamy bugaboo has vanished. Local Yule Mail Is AH Delivered; New Record Made So This Is New York!

NY complete report of the ef fects of repeal on the New ork scene to be definitive would require a Britannlca-length volume for the city's archives, but one trend, after a fortnight, seems positive and assured. The speak easy Is gone forever; the speakeasy's successor, the organized and quasi legal club, Is no more than a refuge for cheap people and fly-blown celebrities, and the old-time restau rant and hotel cafe have perma nently secured tne smart and reputable patronage of the town. Happy days have rettirned to the Ritz- Carlton, the Plaza, the Weylin. the Bt. Regis and Central Park Casino. Polk whose names read like a synthesis of Burke's Peerage and Dun's financial ratings can be seen at the tables of the Waldorf, the Madison and the Colony, but the glory that was the Stork Club. "21" and the Park Avenue, places which some how managed to get a license to carry on, Is with the snows of yesteryear. They are. to be sure, doing business, and some of it very brisK, too, but apparently the only people who retain a taste for poor ventilation, crowded tables and overfamll-lar waiters are stage stars in last year's frocks, outmoded masters of ceremonies in soiled shirt fronts and the rag tag and bobtail that follows on the heels of unsavory or discredited fame.

With An ton Bruehl, the photographer, and a couple of young men-about-town, Collier Young and Edmund Patrick, he has opened the Hapsburg House In deepest 55th st. The chef is a famous cordon bleu from the Hotel de Paris at Monte Carlo, and the maltre d'hotel is Max Reuss, once of he Rltz-Carlton. How many Maxes, Theodors and Henrls of the Rltz are there, anyhow? The decorative motif of Hapsburg House is Tyrolean, tie cuisine strictly and classically French. We were not among the youth and chivalry invited to its opening last Sunday, as there was room for only a hundred, and Fanny Hurst took up most of that, but report has It that the tariff Is moderate.

Of recent years there have been few enough slelghers ln Central Park and. reaven knows, few enough magnu ns, but with the revival of the good living and customs of old times tlie management has once more posted its traditional offer. Last year we ourself had the first sleigh out and a very handsome one It was, tco, painted red, wltn a bui-falo rob and a horse named Patsy. Major Kennelly. of the New York Athletic Club, had the second, but a poor thing It was, and whenever we overtook him on a straightaway we shouted "Get a horse I" This year the competition probably will be stiffer1.

An art authority and collector who, on his death, left a $4,000,000 collection of paintings to tne Smithsonian, the old gentle man affected the clothes of a cen tury ago and was one of the courtly ana gay eccentrics of the town Dining, usually alone, at the Play ers, he would be dressed for the evening in a sky-blue dinner Jacket wltn gold buttons, skin-tight fawn colored breeches, gleaming Wei Ungtons and a black satin stock. On other occasions he would wear dull raspberry frock coat cut in the old manner with wide skirui, spongebag trousers and a pearl gray topper. His hair was white and flowing to match a luxuriant mus tache, and such aristocratic benev olence was ln his appearance that even the street urchins, though staring, were still respectful.

Reduction of the Navy's aviation activities necessitated ny placing aircraft on new ships was said tonight by Rear Admiral Ernest J. King, chief of the Naval Bureau of Aeronautics, to have created "a serious situation." In his '.nnual report to Secretary Swanson, the Admiral disclosed that the addition of 15 new heavy cruisers, the aircraft carrier Ranger and the airship Macon would call for a total of 212 planes from the Navy's 1000-plane program. "This has forced the Navy to reduce activities authorized under the 1000-plane program by 212 airplanes," King said. "I consider it escntlal that early legislation be enacted to provide for an Increase In the 1000-plane program ln order to give the Navy airplanes necessary for national defense." In discussing personnel, the Admiral noted that as of last July 1 the force was short 183 heavier-thnn-alr aviators, and that this deficiency could not be made up until 1945 if the present rate of commissioning fliers were followed. "If the aeronautic organization Is to expand as now seems probable," he continued "the ultimttnn in r. card to naval aviators will be even more serious." T'rges Reaerve Training Training of personnel In the naval and Marine Corps aviation reserve was said by King to have been carried on in "a more satisfactory manner "than in any previous year." "However, the reduction In training funds in the latter part of the year was a serious blow to morale," he said in referring to retrenchments in the service tor economy. Among the other recommendations submitted wa- one for an increase of the civilian personnel "to permit the bureau to keep abreast oi aeronautic progress , provision for aircraft when new vessels are authorized rather than drawing on existing forces; authorization of funds for development of a fleet patrol plane of long cruising radius and with suitably Installed living quarters for the crew; replacement of the airship Akron which crashed with heavy of life off the New Jersey coast, in April; construction of a smaller airship for training pur poses; recommlssloning the airship Los Angeles now laid up at the Lakehurst, N.

P.V-Mr. and Mrs. Robert Gordon SwiU, young Americans, declared vigorously today tlmt their arrest on suspicion of being "tools of an International spy ring" was a police "frame-up" and the result of a "plant." They were heard separately by Magistrate flenon. During the grilling examination they protested their innocence and asserted that supposedly Incriminating documents found by pollco did not belong to them. The 20-year-old native of Enst Orange, N. J,, maintained that the affair "looked like a scenario well- played." His four-hour examination left him nearly exhausted. Mrs. Bwitz told , the American Coiu-ul, RolH'it D. Murphy, that the evidence- against them whs "put there as a plimt." Murphy, who whs not present dining the hearing of l he husband, will make a report to Washington regarding the examination. 1 he meeting of the couple after a separation of almost a week was an affectionate one. Their attorney, Charles Moyse, who attended, said it was "more tender than an American movie." Their family has engiiged a famous Ficnch lawyer, Iv-puty Henry Torres, to aid In the defense. The couple had a brief chance to embrace when they were together for a few minutes in the Judge's chambers as the seled documents were oened before them.

The accusation against him was described by SwiU as a "complete error" and he told the Investigators details of his trts to France. He explained he was trying to market an amplifier, of which he had a model made in Holland. Judge Hennon after the hearing denied an application for their provisional liberty.

"A few days later two police Inspectors came to our room and ask ed to see our passxrts, although they did not say why. Of course I told them about the mysterious telephone call. "One policeman went away and made a phone call and then later both started to search the room, upsetting things and going throuch the closets. Suddenly one of them said 'Hera are the pnpers we are after.' It looked like a scenario well played. "I knew nothing about those papers. I had never seen them before," The four allegedly Incriminating papers Included machine gun statistics and documents pertaining to a bill before Parliament on deferring the beginning of Army service by conscripts and analyzing military rxpeiiM's. The others were not nrnde public.
