Under supervision of tire trustees, the White fund manager cares for 13 buildings, two of which are office buildings, the remaining 11 being leased for more or less lengthy periods. There is much detail work on leases, upkeep, and rentals. Manager Phelan s Letter Mayor Nichols and Pres C. G. Keene of the City1 Council were the only new trustees brought Into being by the change of administration. Yet Mr Phelan, In his letter to the Mayor, points out that the suggestion that his Curley-made contract be breached came not from them, but from two trustees not connected with the city administration. The Phelan letter Is as follows: "In September of last year the trustees of the' White Fund Pres Roland N. Boyden of the Chamber of Commerce and Pres George R. Nutter of the Bar Association dissenting entered Into a contract with me for services as manager of the fund for the term of seven years from Sept 1, 1925, canceling, at that time, my original contract, which would have expired on March 31, 1927. "At the recent meeting for reorganization of the trustees, incidental to the new city administration, Mr Boyden and Mr Nutter while especially complimentary of me and of the character of my services spoke of their embarrassment, because of my continued service under the new contract and suggested that I relieve the situation by waiving the new and reestablishing the original contract. Denies Any Impropriety "I am unwilling to concede any lm- propriety in the making of the new contract feeling assured that the majority of the trustees who signed the same were prompted, as was I, by an earnest endeavor to conserve the best interests of the fund. I am advised, on competent authority, that the contract was legally prepared and executed. "Still I regard my first duty to be mindful of the generous and broadminded character of the bequest made by the late Mr White, In establishing this fund for the benefit of the citizens of Boston, and of tho high character of service which, under the terms of his will, he summoned for Its administration. I am conscious also of our relative positions in the rendering of this service, the trustees being specifically named In the will and charged with its control and management and I, acting as manager for them, under their direct appointment. "The trust created by him is too sacred and its responsibilities too great for me to permit the embarrassment, row existing in the trustees, to continue, if it Is in my power to dispel the same. Therefore In the interest of the fund and In an endeavor to avert any possible impairment of Its usefulness, as administered bv the present board of trustees, I defer to the judgment of the trustees as to the wisdom of my waiving the existing contract for services as manager and the reestablishing of the original contract, feeling assured that the trustees action, in connection therewith, will be prompted by a similar impulse and that the cordial and friendly relations now existing between us may thus be permitted to continue. UNITED STATES FAT MENS CLUB DINES Ranging In weight from 191 to 310 pounds, 50 members of the United States vt Mens Club dined at the American House last night. Nicolo Carlone, 191 pounds, the lightest member, as well as the latest acquisition, managed to squeeze in, being Just one pound over the minimum required.

I) The prolonged controversy between the Washington and Mexico City Governments over enactment of the new land and petroleum laws by Mexico, 6aid to affect American interests In that country adversely, appeared tonight to be 'close to a final and mutually satisfactory adjustment. President Coolidge was represented as believing that the retroactive and confiscatory features of the two laws, as generally understood by the public, did not appear at this time to warrant serious apprehension. On the contrary, ho felt that tho differences between the two Governments would oe satisfactorily composed. After a conference with Secretary Kellogg at the State Department later in the day, Manuel C. Tellez, the Mexican Ambassador, expressed confidence that the controversy would be ended in a short time. "I have bad a most pleasant conference with the Secretary this afternoon, the Ambassador said. 1 am confident that it will be a matter of a short time before the question will be brought to a mutually satisfactory close, and that there is nothing to suggest a difference of misunderstanding or conflict." At the same time Secretary Kellogg announced that he had given a copy of his reply to the latest Mexican, note to Ambassador Tellez. A statement issued by the State Department said: "The Secretary of State announced that he . had today delivered to the Mexican Ambassador a copy of a note addressed to the Minister for Foreign Affairs in Mexico City in reply to the last note of the Minister for Foreign Affairs, dated Feb 12, 1926. "It was generally agreed between the Secretary of State and the Mexican Ambassador that the written memorandums, aldes-memolre and notes between the two Governments will be published simultaneously In Mexico Pity and In Washington. The Mexican ' Ambassador will telegraph to his Gov-' eminent the last note, and as soon as he has received instructions the date of publication will be arranged.

Adjoining the Brunswick New York KENMORE 728S Brooklyn Creation of a committee of 55 of the citys leading professional and business men, to be known as the Citizens Committee on Municipal Emergencies, and which Is to work cooperatively with the Board on Municipal Emergencies, composed of municipal administrative chiefs, was announced last night by Mayor Malcolm E. Nichols. Thus Is launched an organization, a pioneer of Its kind In the United States, which Is to keep an eye to the hazards of existence In large cities and to plan for the public safety In emergencies such as would be produced by conflagration, earthquake, explosion, famine, flood, panic, pestilence, riot snowstorm, windstorm or any such violent visitation of nature or Industrial dislocation. This representative gToup 'of citizens will serve as a contact division of the whole movement. Its members being in touch with all phases of activity In Boston, and It will from time to time report to the board tho actual and potential problems of the populace with relation to its physical safety in time of unusual distress. Rourke Head of Board Those on the board of municipal chiefs are: Building Commissioner Rourke, chairman: Acting Fire Commissioner T. F. Sullivan, Public Works Commissioner J. II. Sullivan, Corporation Counsel F. S. Deland, Health Commissioner Mahoney, FoLice Commissioner Wilson and Dr Hollis Godfrey, engineer, who has made a special study of this line of work. The Mayor Is chairman general of the whole movement. Dr Godfrey, who will direct the educational activities for the general spreading of intelligence, is president of the Engineering-Economics Foundation. Chairman Rourke distinguished himself for work of this general nature while he was engineer in charge of the Cu-lebra Cut division of the Panama Canal. It was out of the experiences of his own long public, career in a variety of pests that the Mayor developed this new Idea for the public safety, which has already taken root in a slightly different form In New York city, and which is bound to be widely copied In congested American metropolises. To Name Womans Group Commissioner Rourkes board will be responsible for putting Into action the knowledge of existing and potential problems which the citizens committee reports, and for securing, through plan and action, the fullest possible pro-i tection of life and property In such emergencies as it Is aimed to meet, should they arise. A womans auxiliary committee is to be appointed later, and subcommittees will be created for special detail work as the movement progresses. To Dr Godfrey and his group will fall the duty of organizing Knowledge of the danger. The Engineering-Economics Foundation in assisting its president will study Boston continuously from the standpoint of the effects various emergencies have upon the citys people and Its buildings. It will particularly consider effects upon crowded sections or districts containing non-English speaking peoples. Teaching Prpgram Planned All the results of these studies are made available to the division of action of the board under Commissioner Rourke. In this division methods of preventing loss of life and property will be worked out in detail and will be made known to those responsible for putting the .program into action. The teaching program is devised also to go direct to the citizens with the knowledge acquired. Pulbllo lectures, radio, the movies and the newspapers will be invoked to tell every man and woman in the city what they can do to protect themselves in preparation for or in any emergency or disaster that might strike Boston. Virtually every branch of business, of industry and of social progress is represented In one form or another on tne citizens committee, which will act as a point of contact between the board and those the latter body should reach and help. .

There was some confusion some applause and some manifestations of disapproval. Mr Carpenter reiterated his ruling that Mr Washburn should not he permitted to continue with a comparison between the President and Senator Borah. "No matter what the conclusion? asked Mr Washburn. If there is anything detrimental, replied Mr Carpenter. The discussion of politics or religion is not permitted. It really is not fair to allow the discussion to go on. was too independent in his course in the Massachusetts Legislature to make a good candidate for the Speakership, and he was dropped. With a great price I bought my freedom, said Mr Washburn, "and I am paying the price. Then Mr Washburn announced his text The Turnpike or the Trail a contrast between Coolidge. the turnpike eymbolizing eafety, and Borah, the trail symbolizing discovery. He said that if there appeared to be too much sunshine with Borah and too much shadow with Coolidge, healthy discord 13 the price of progress. Gavin Also Protests I have no desire to press any speech of mine on the Massachusetts society, said Mr Waehburn, and of course I cannot continue. But I want to say that when I was Invited to speak here I took my speech and laid It before an official of this society and asked him to pass Judgment on It. He said, Bob, I will not presume to censor any speech of yours, but this speech Is In entire good taste.' Chairman Carpenter replied that he did not think he had been too critical in ruling Mr Washburn off the platform. He stood by his guns. There was some applause. At this point William B. Gavin, a member of the executive committee of the society, addressed the chair. "I desire to enter a protest against your ruling, said Mr Gavin. 'I think Mr Washburns address has been in entire good taste. I do not think the ruling Justified and I wish to enter my protest." Mr Gavin was liberally applauded and then Mr Washburn got In a final shot. Washburn Adds Jibe "Let me add in a desire to relieve the tension, to what I have already said. said Mr Washburn, "that I was stimulated in the opening of my address by the words of the presiding officer in Introducing me when he said: We al ways love to bear Bob Washburn because he always has something to say. A wave of laughter swept over the audience and when it subsided Mr Carpenter announced that there would be dancing and refreshments would be Mr Washburn started his taJk before the society by stating after he had announced the subject that "the path was paved with eggs but I Will endeavor to walk staccato. Cites Efforts of White He related some amusing Incidents In his own political history, which included the unsuccessful effort, which he credited to Thomas W, White, now, he said, one of the recognized political leaders of Massachusetts, to make him speaker. Mr Washburn eald in substance tbat he Im Not Spokesman He said he is not one of those who ever believed that the Republican party was the symbol of Idealism but that he had always been a supporter of President Coolidge. In this connection he referred to the biography of the President of which he is the author, and which, he said. "Walks the border line of sacrilege." But 1 am not the spokesman for the President, said Mr Washburn, "and the rumor that the President caught his recent cold from me has no foundation in fact. It was at this point that Mr Carpenter interrupted Mr Washburn and the proceedings as related followed. There was no attempt by anv one on the floor, with the single exception of Mr Gavin, to oppose Chairman Carpenter in his ruling against allowing the speaker to continue. Even Mr Gavin made no appeal from the ruling of the chair. What the Vote would have been If such an appeal had been made Is a matter of speculation. While it was quite apparent that many persons In the audience of 200 sympathized with Mr Washburn, the chairman was liberally applauded when he made hjs ruling and subsequently stuck to his guns in the brief discussion which followed.

Representative Louis A. Frothing-liam, president of the society, was not at the meeting, nor was anv member of the Congressional delegation from the State in attendance.
