The entire population lined the roadway to see the guests, officials, ministers and prelates arrive at the palace.

PEASANTS JOYOUS Many of the peasants rode Into town bareback on rough country horses; others drove in old world ox-carts, while shepherd flute players, gypsies and musicians assembled in the palace grounds and played joyous airs for the rustic dancers, adding to the merriment. Just before the big event of the day, Princess Ileana and Archduke Anton presented themselves to the press and submitted to the process of being photographed and giving newspapermen the opportunity to ask questions, which were answered frankly. The photographing over, the courage of the princess failed her when she was requested to speak into the microphone. She aaid she had pro-pared no speech and was overcome by her emotions she could not extemporize a greeting to the world. DOUBLE CEREMONY As the hour for the religious ceremony approached, about 300 guests had assembled In or about the large hall of the palace where an altar was set up.

After a short period of waiting, during which the civil ceremony was taking place, the smiling princess entered the hall at the same time as the bridegroom, who looked serious and preoccupied. Immediately after this civil cere- i monv. throusrh which Princess impressive wedding ceremony ac- I cording to the rites of the Roman: Catholic church ILEANA HAPPY It was punctually at 11 a. m. 1 when the princess, smiling hap- Prince Friedrich Wilhelm Hohen- zollern, in a Prussian general's uniform of the pre-war days, stood at the princess' left.

Prince Fried- rich's tunic, like that of King Carol, displayed a long row of I insignia of various orders. On the altar, around which stood ten large lighted candles, were three upholstered golden chairs, upon which sat the three prelates. Prince Vladimir Chika. Bishop Cisar and Bishop Fiskner. The ceremony opened with a solemn mass, accompanied by the grand organ of the palace, a choir of ten nuns from the convent of Sinaia and a trained boys' choir.

i 1 ll Farmers: i 3 I i night, three mules being burned to death and 25 tons of hay consumed, along with a wagon and implements. The building stood on the old Acheson farm which Mr. Andrew purchased several years ago, Walter Burton being the manager. The flames were visible for at least 20 miles and Mr. Andrew, returning from Indianapolis by motor.saw the fire when he was at Romney, but was not sure of the fact that it was his barn that was burning.

Neighbors assisted valiantly in saving other buildings. The loss was estimated at $2,500, covered by insurance. A defective porcelain on an electric fixture in the haymow is thought to have started the blaze as nobody was around the barn when the fire broke out. In City Court Glenn Neidigh, a constable. faced trial for reckless driving before Judge S.

U. Simms in the city court Monday and after hearing the evidence, the court an nounced that a finding would be made Tuesday morning. The state witness, Motorcycle Policeman Forest D. Goldsberry, who arrested Neidigh, July 15, testified that Neidigh was driving about 35 miles an hour when he ran a stop sign at Ninth and Ferry streets. Neidigh, in conducting his own case, stated that he slowed down and shifted gears at the intersec tion.

Miss Marjorie Bible who was riding with Neidigh, testified for the defendant. Ira Hicks, charged with assault and battery upon his wife, pleaded not guilty and was released for the present. He had been in jail since Saturday morning. Robert Vision, 30, was arrested for speeding on East Main street Monday morning by Motorcycle Policeman Forest D. Goldsberry arid he entered a plea of not guilty before Judge The case was set for Tuesday morning at 9 o'clock.

Brush and Grass Afire West of Purdue Farm The West Lafayette fire depart ment was called out to extinguish a brush and grass fire west of the Purdue university poultry farm at 2 o'clock Monday afternoon. The origin of the fire was in a pile of debris and it spread over a small area before it was brought under control, one or two trees being killed. Jailed for Assault Ralph Myers, 20, pleaded guilty to a charge of assault and battery before Justice James H. Por ter Monday morning and was fined $10 and costs, totaling $20.50. He was lodged in jail for failure to pay the fine.

Ieo Sparger was the prosecuting witness, and James Potter, special constable, made the arrest. WICKERSHAM (Continued from page one) and inhuman." Asserting these methods "contribute to the increase of crime by hardening the prisoner," the commission urged they be blamed by law. It told of men who, for offenses as slight as talking or laughing, were shackled to doors for 12 hours a day, tied down under a stream of cold water, whipped. placed in straight jackets, confined in wire cages so small they could not move, or kept in complete darkness for days on end on a ration of four ounces of bread every 24 hours. 'The prison has failed as a dis ciplinary institution," the report said.

"The riots, the fires, the use of cruel and brutal measures of punishment, the persistent recur rence of murder within the prison. the presence of narcotics, the frequent atmosphere of hate and bitterness, are sufficient evidence. "The prison has failed as an educational institution. No one claims that the men who are released are better equipped to accept honest role in the world than they were before commitment. "The prison has failed as a business enterprise.

With few exceptions our prison system is a costly and dependent institution. We spend on the average $350 each year for the maintenance of each individual prisoner in our penal institutions." The commission asserted it was convinced a new type of penal institution must be developed." It outlined a plan of its own, under which only a few prisoners would be kept in heavily barred and guarded buildings. Prisoners would receive wages. Those with contagious diseases, the insane and drug addicts would be segregated. Education would be stressed and wardens would be men who could be classed as "the president of a great educational institution." The parole system would be developed "as the best means yet devised for releasing prisoners from confinement." No man would be sent to prison until it was "definitely determined that he was not a fit subject for probation." Nevertheless, the Commission criticized t'- parole sys tem ns si i-ndei manned, overworked and ill equipped that it had produced small results.

In 18 states, it said, contact was made with parolees by correspondence alone, making it 'easy to beat the game." BADLY OVERCROWDED "The whole system becomes a huge joke," the commission said, "and parole comes to be nothing more than a speedy manner of emptying prison cells. This is unfortunately the case in the majority of the American states today." The commission devoted much of its report, which, with the addition of a report by an advisory committee of 24 experts, totalled 343 pages, to a denunciation of present prison conditions. It revealed federal prisons during 1930 were overcrowded 65.9 per cent more than capacity. It asserted that well over one-third of all the prisons in the country were between 70 and 100 years old and that 21 per cent of all men's prisons were without' plumbing. The state prisons in Oregon, the Charleston prison in Massachusetts, the Auburn and Clinton prisons in New York, the Folsom prison in California and the old prison at Poliet, 111., were given as examples of such Institutions.

cial) With the arrival of apprais ers from the state highway commission today it became known that the route for the paved road, Delphi to Lafayette, part of route 25, the Wabash way, will be by way of Americus Instead of the old Buck Creek route. The road will start from the foot of Main street and run westward, over the new route. It will start out over the land of Cloid Kerlln adjoining his grain elevator, and will run westward over the land of John Smith, and then follow a newly surveyed line to Americus. Other details of the route have not yet been announced. Grand Larceny Charge Against Third Member Of Chicken Raid Gang A charge of grand larceny was lodged against Simon Benavidis, 27, a Spaniard, in the city court Monday by Prosecuting Attorney Raymond M.

Robertson, based on the alleged theft of chickens from the Frank Vester farm near El- ston. William M. Glass and Louis Raines, who were arrested with Benavidis on July 15, had previously been charged with grand larceny and burglarly in the second degree. All three are still prisoners in the county jail. Ohio Newspaper to Take Wheat as Pay For Subscriptions OTTAWA, Ohio, July 27.

The third arctic dirigible expedition in history carried 12 scientists, a photographer, two journalists and a Russian wireless operator, besides a regular crew of 30.

The Ameriunn members of the expedition are Lieutenant Commander K. Smith of the United States coast guard and and LincCln Ellsworth, sportsman and explorer. Headed by Professor Rudolph Samoilovitcli. Russion scientific director of the expedition, and Dr. Eckener, veteran commander of the Graf, the voyagers expect to cover approximately 7,000 miles on a cruise which is for the purpose of gathering meteorological and geographical data with a view to determining whether a regular dirigible route across the north pole is feasible.

No attempt will be made to cross the pole the farth est north point on the journey being about 82 degrees latitude. By working at night as well as by day in the perpetual northern daylight at this season of the year, the scientists hoped to crowd 12 ordinary days' work into six. A new pontoon arrangement makes it possible for the dirigible to alight on water and several such descents to the ocean were contemplated one for the meeting with the Malign, in which is carrying scientists and tourists.
