DELAY IS NEEDED NOW Geneva, March 17—Much comment has been aroused in Geneva by the arrival in London, of Jonkheer John Loudon, president of the League of i Nations Preparatory Dwarmament Commission, and /reports that he is conferring with the naval-conference powers with a| view of fixing a date for the neSct session of his commission. The comment is especially significant as revealing that the Germans share the views of the French on ' the question of the League's role in disarmament, just as they have been doing in the economic conference here. *. -.' i Some fear is expressed that Jonkheer Loudon's visit to London at this difficult stage of-the naval conference may not be opportune! It is regarded as likely to give the impression that the League is prematurely assuming.) the five powers have failed, which might have an unfavorable affect on the Americana. They stress ithat Jonkheer Loudon 's move is a personal one which he is entitled '.to ' make, since all members of the (preparatory commission, * including the United States and: the other naval conference powers, left it tp him. to fix the date for the next session. On the other [hand the Ger-^ mans - and-' some K French circles hold it was a mistake to try to fix the'naval figures separately from land and air armament figures and that the sooner the>naval flgr urea are. brought ^back ^Into the framework ^ of the preparatory commission *the. • better.^ ^They point out the naval powers laat May'askedlthe preparatory com mlaston^tot-adjourn i^^-t^r^ ^i **5*ife . ^ C until 'they were'>ble^t6.agree on the„,meth*- oda'of*reducing naval armamentji IN WET FIGHT Tilt of Wets and Drys in November Will Be Decided in This Section. PARTY TIES DOOMED Great Battle Is Certain to Take Place in the State of Illinois. Tia- Juana Gretna Green (Gone as Role Bars Aliens' Weddings . . San DiegovCal., March 17.— A rule by Governor Tapia, new chief executive of the.nbrthern district of Lower California, that none' but leg^l residents could be married at Tia Juana, has stripped the border _tpwn of its reputation as a Gretna Green-for Americans. Tie Juana's first marriageless week in ten years ended Saturday. Before issuance of the order its magistrates sometimes did a 'rushing m**giness, with visitors paying $31 in fees for the binding ceremony. Under the new rule the fee is'only $5, which did not interest any of its own residents. The California law requiring a three-day wait between application and issuance of marriage licenses caused many marriage-bent couples from the state to go to Tia Juana where there- was no delay.

Washington, March 17.—Three states loom up prominently in the national politial horizon because of developments of the last few days. They are' Illinois, Massachusetts and Pehnslyvania. The ,first two command th^ greatest interest because of the possibility that Wet Democrats may succeed sitting Dry Republican Senators after the votes are counted~next November. No such possibility exists in Pennsylvania, where the chanees of a Democratic victory, however wide the split in Republican ranks, virtually are nil. Prohibition will be the dominant issue in all three states in the forthcoming byerelections. Demon rum is more of a political issue today, than it has "been at any time since the Eighteenth Amendment was adopted. And this despite the fact that the present Congress is dryer than any other that has preceded it and that the Administration in Washington is more emphatically dry STATES SPEED Washington, Marefc'. 17.— inJap Admirul Byrd 's assertfota. that hi • had no intention of; clalmfak fbj j this country the new lands he hki ; discovered in the Antarctic] wul have no binding force upoii. th< I Government of the uklted sjatest; t.i:i.*ii, | according to officials of the jSUl Billion and Half Dollar Fro gram Planned for This Year in U.
