M. W. Richards called on two 300-year-bld ghosts in the eerie pre-dawn hours today to support the claim of their host, the owner of a lonely country mansion, that his taxes should be reduced because the house 'was haunted. The investigation took all night As the sun rose, Richards stumbled from the ancient 12-rjoom cob- webbed mansion a?f leff imme diately without comment for an extended wk-end in other parts of the country ' to consider his decision. ... Richards was aided in his investigation by a London medium, Mrs. Florence Thompson, four psychic investigators, the caretaker and newsmen 10 persons in all. Mrs. Thompson insisted the ghosts kept the rendezvous.; TWO HAUNTS According to the legend, the house is haunted by the ghosts of a beautiful young' girl and her hand some lover whq crossed the wishes of the girl's father. The irate father shut both of them in a cellar closet and they died in each other's arms. Since then their spirits have been earthbound. The present owner, D. Key, of Eel Pie Island, Twickenham, whose family has owned the mansion for the past 100 years, complained to Richards that the mansion has been haunted ever since that closet door closed and no one would live there except the caretaker, Miss Amy Dickinson, gaunt and crippled 67 year-old spinster. Because of this, Key said, he wanted a tax reduction. Richards, tax assessor and a member of the City Council of Apsley Guise, Bed fordshire. which heard the com plaint, was not convinced. He wanted a demonstration. GHOSTLY SPOT The party accompanied Richards last night to the lonely spot in Weathercock , Lane where the ancient mansion stood, protected by a dark and fluttering grove of trees. Newsmen noted that '"the house had no staircase, a relic - of he days when people drew a ladder up after them at bedtime for fear of being murdered in their sleep. The group sat around a crude wooden table in fluttering candle light, directly ! above the cellar where the lovers reportedly were found in a death embrace. Branches rustled noisily outside, and at midnight shafts of moon light slanted through crusted win do ws to show cracked and musty walls. As the hours waned Mrs. Thomp son, the medium, began to perspire "You are killing mC she said suddenly in a choked voice. "Let me go. I want to get away.

The psychic investigators, true to their profession, adopted a hush hush attitude on the grounds that no psychic phenomenon should be assuming his new job three weeks ago, Ching est a bushed machinery for handling such disputes. He set up a series of "tests based on answers td an elaborate questionnaire for determining cases in which the Mediation Service will assume jurisdiction. Chingi said the service will put major emphasis on keeping out of as -many industrial disputes as it can. He abandoned the practice of the former Conciliation Service in the Labor Department of assigning a commissioner as soon as a 30-day notice of an unsettled dispute is received. He announced a "hands off policy on disputes arising from grievances under existing contracts, except for unusual cases. FORM TO BE USED Ching Isaid he will shortly issue a form to be used by companies and unions in notifying the services of disputes' involving modilication or termination of existing agreements. 'This form will elicit information which will assist the service in de termining whether in a particular case it has statutory legal authority to intercede and whether such inter cession Mil be in accordance with the principles and policies expressed in this statement," Ching said. The co-operation of all employ ers and unions is earnestly solicited in the employment of these forms as soon as they are made available at the offices of the services, international pinions and employer associ ations. Ching said selection and screen ing .of disputes which the service will enter Us necessary because of the "great case load burden" placed on it by the Taft-Hartley Act LAW REQUIREMENT The lap requires that wherever a dispute trises over a new contract or renewal of an old one in an in dustry Effecting interstate commerce, the Mediation Service shall be notified 30 days in advance of a threatened sjtrike or lockout.
