Joseph C. Grew, the American ambassador, issued the following statement: Grew's Statement "Regarding rumors published In various newspapers in Japan to the effect thnt understanding .was reached between the United States and China for supply money, arms and munl- tipnH to China,, the"American embassy Bthtes emphatically* there 'is no understanding or agreement of this nature between the United States and China. There Is no basis whatever of rumors which have been published, Including a rumor the United States arranged to loan the. Nanking government 20,000,000 yuan (nearly $4,000,000)." if was learned Ambassador Grew's denial was based on a recent statement cabled by Secretary of State Stlmson..

It was learned the principal basis for the reference to Americans was tnat airplanes were sold to the Hang- chow-Aviation School and Shanghai was supplied with mail planes. Allegations that Americans were aiding China emanated mostly from Japanese correspondents in China, who frequently cabled that American loans w'ere imminent for either Generals Chiang Kai-Shek, the Chinese com- mander-ln-chlef, or Chang. A foreign office spokesman said: Claims Mercenaries Aiding ,> "W« have reliable Information that 40 American aviators, mostly noncommissioned officers on' the active list, were instructing Chinese in south China."

The Senate's principal claim to distinction has been that they have a rule where •a man can talk as long as he wants to, about anything he wants to. And they have worried th« American taxpayer to death with that rule. Now to have somebody come In that can talk them rigged like they been doing to the country, why Huey Is. our hero. If he was the means of making 'em change that rule, the "klngfl»h" would replace the American eagle as our national anthem. So sic 'em; Huey, It's good to hear • new Vole* anyway. Yours, WILL ROGERS.

(United Press Leaned Wire) WASHINGTON, Jnn. 16.— The American Legion today attacked as "infamous" a recommendation of the National .Economy League that veterans tte required to prove service connection beyond doubt -before 'disability compensation for disease is allowed. Captain Watson B. Miller, chairman of the league's national rehabilitation committee; told the joint congressional veterans' committee such provisions would result in ninny hardships to veterans. " , • Memory Falls Miller said in many mental cases now being treated even the ability to remember the doctor or army physician who first treated the veteran had vanished. The present law allows presumption of service connection for example in :he case of tuberculosis, neuro-psychl- atrlc -sickness, spinal meningitis nnd paralysis which developed prior to January 1, 1925. He estimated 328,000 cases are drawing compensation, but -that the total since the war, Including those ended by death or a cure, was In the neighborhood of 500,000. . "As we understand the cruel purpose of the Economy League," he said, "it would cut from the service rolls with one big slash whose service connection has b^en established by legal presumption." Minimize Disability He said many veterans had mini- infzed their disability in 1919 "from eagerness to get back into harness" in civil life, and in a large number of cases It was impossible after 14 years to recover hospital records and other data necessary to proof. "What an unthinkable thing it IB," he continued, "to establish a facile way to establish service connection and then many years later eliminate It, leaving bed-ridden veterans no recourse. "This infamous proposal of the Economy League would cut down the very group the league says should be cared for."

"It Is not open rebellion that expressed Itself In marching and waving of flags," she said,, "but what might be called a demanding attitude, the feeling that 'we can't get along with this.' " . The reaction described, she said, "Is not communistic," but Just a natural eagerness to be self-supporting. LADY BAILEY AT ORAN ORAN, Algeria, Jan. 16. (U.

The fiery Welshman discussed pant events, present problems and his own political future with n special cm-respondent of the News-Chronicle at Crlccleth, a Welsh watering place. Lloyd. George'had no praise fur the present national government of Great Britain, .which he said was bluffed by Premier Bennett.of Canada, defied by Japan and bullied by the United States. "The / United States government was moribund, Ilka a wasp, when the summer has past, with just one sting left In Its tall," Lloyd George said. "And the government stung us badly, to the extent of 30,000,000 pounds." The News-Chronicle said Lloyd George was a picture of mental and physical fitness. He was confined to his home last week by a cold. The Interview indicated the end of a great human n/id political epoch In the complete and final severance of Lloyd George from "official Liberalism," the correspondent said. Lloyd George re>- vealed that he would not seek office again. He saw nothing but n dishonorable grave for Liberalism, "which Is In an advanced s.tate of creeping pnralysls." Lloyd George said he did not differ fundamentally from the labor viewpoint, but the Labor party was too far behind In Its program for him to consider joining it. "We are not confronted by an ordinary trade cycle ' crisis,' but by fundamental and gigantic changes, and all efforts to -deal with thsm have been superficial and trivial," Lloyd George said. Lloyd George said he did not expect another great war, but added, "neither did I In June, 1914." FOHUSHE SUES JA!i. CLARK V. J.
