Kennedy, former I'nited States Ambassador to (Ireat Tiritain. said Unlay that dot-many had an "exrict and complete" knowledge of Kngland's position in the war from Us start to October, 1!M", through Tyler Kent, American London embassy code clerk. Kennedy said in a telephoned interview that Winston Churchill, then first lord of the admiralty, had supplied full data on. England's manpower, arrny and navy installations and preparedness, as well as disposition of forces, for transmission to President Hoosevelt, and that after Kent's arrest, he learned that Kent had made copies of IftOO documents "which we assumed he sent to Germany." Italian Tall Kennedy said the manner of Kent's communication with the Nazis was not learned Kent's arrest when, search of his rooms, a telephone ca!J for Kent came from the Italian embassy In London. Kent was tried under the British official secrets act and was sentenced to serve seven years in prison. "Italy, you remember," he said, "Did not go to war until after Kent's arrest." Kennedy denied there was any truth in an assertion of John McGovern, Independent Laborite member of the British Parliament, who hud been quoted in dispatches as saying he had been told that Kent and Captain A. H. R. Harnsey, a member of Commons, were Imprisoned to prevent disclosure of a reported prewar understanding between President Roosevelt and Churchill. This was described as a pledge that if Britain entered the war, the United States would aid her. Clmrge See-ret Agreement In Washington today. Tyler Kent's mother, Mrs. Ann H. P. Kent, made public from her home a letter addressed to Secretary of State Hull in which she said the state department's lengthy release of the Kent case, issued last Saturday, "left entirely unanswered the point on which the American people demand an Investigation, 1. e., the existence or nonexistence of secret prewar agreements made by the President of the United States without the advice and consent of the Senate." Asserting that her son had been called upon to code and decode "secret agreements between Roosevelt and Churchill," Mrs. Kent quoted Tyler Kent as having said after his sentence in England: "At. times I was almost nauseated at the part 1 li.'jd to play." Mrs. Kt?rit statod hhe bad been refused a passport to visit Kngland to SOP her son and said she planned to petition Congress "for redress of grievance." "Tho department doubtless heard of my intention and accordingly issued its release at this time," she wa i d. Says No Metliary Kennedy said that Kent was simply a code clerk, and "was no medl- ary between Roosevelt and Churchill." The former ambassador asserted that he learned of the Kent affair when a Scotland Yard man called upon him and told him the story. Kennedy said he was greatly upset when the Scotland Yard man revealed they had been "on Kent's trail for a long time/' "That opened the question of whether Kent had been giving the Germans copies of our dispatches since October, 1939," Kennedy said. "If it was true/' he added, "the Germans would have no need of a secret service in England. Kent had seen all the messages between Roosevelt and Churchill. We had two codes, one an ordinary one, and the other one which was more complicated, and which we considered unbreakable. "Kent had tho unbreakable code book at bis elbow. "Churchill had given me a very frank and complete picture of England's unpreparedness, of her military and naval power and military placements, the status of her industries, and week-by-week developments, for forwarding to President Roosevelt. "After Kent's arrest, we could only assume I ha the same dis- \>:»tchcs had been sent to the Germans." Paris Orders Tria for Traitors, Agents LONDON, Sept. 6.

Whether the French farmer collects Immediate cash for his cows depends on whether bossy died in battle or after it. Such points have been coming up lately thicker than gnats in the summertime, and here's the plan of treatment: If a shell blows bossy to greener pastures during 1 combat between German and American forces, international understandings and United States law render the chances of the farmer collecting rather thin. Collection for damages incurred during combat rest primarily with the possibility that some of the reparation money extracted from the defeated belligerent eventually might sift down to the farmer. Should the cow be run over by an American truck after the buttle has moved up the road a couple of miles, the farmer's chance of collection is much brighter. American law provides for payment to individuals of claims up to $5000 fur losses, damage or injuries resulting from "noncom- bat" accidents or incidents. The army claims office, with lawyers in uniforms constituting a large part of its staff, investigates and makes payment on claims by civilians for damages resulting from op- ertaiona or activities of the armed forces in instances other than combat. Settlements are made for property damage, personal injury or death, use of property, such as the billeting oC troops and other similar claims. Stipulation is made for the time in which claims must be filed. '.%• LOTS OF (t AS—This smiling maiden.
