VEll'ÜPHELD A CONIMIliEE E NAÏÏ LEAGUE by William H. Gardiner Unwarranted. ASSERTIONS CALLED FALSE Accuser Wrong in Conclusions— Flat Denial of Secret Pact With the British. BIG PR FACING LEGION ER S WASHlXnTON. LI’' A verdict in favor of President Hf»over was returned Saturday by the jury he appointed to weigh th? truth of statenienta contained In William H (iHrdmer’s attack upon the administration’s naval policy. Fully supporting the chief executive, the committee found that the pamphlet issued by Gardiner a.s president <'f the Navy league, charging Mr. Hoover with "asvsmal ignorance" of naval affairs contained "many inaccuracies, false assertions and erioneous ccmclusions." Aroused by the Gardiner attack, Mr. Hoover had charged the Navy League head with uttering lalslilcations an.I said he would expert a public retraction and an apology after the committee had completed Its Inquiry. The group made its report, laying on the president’s desk a 10.000 word uocuinent accompanied by a lengthy letter of transmittal. S i * Statements Incorrest. Six of Gardiner’s statements wcie especially stressed Icr.*: as incorrect. T'ney were: (1 1 That the president and Prime Minister MacDonald of Hngland had "admiUedly” reached agreements never divulged in Iheir entirely.

Satan called Sheriff Greiner to investigate, the sheriff said. Frantz was dead w-hen the sheriff arrived. Frantz’ father, Arthur H.

Nebraska Stevens, jr. The speaking personality, which a few weeks ago led the national convention of the American Legion to select a fnendly, .soft spoken Warsaw, N. C., lawyer of thirty-three as its 1932 leader, .struck Saturday itight at the hide- of war, class privilege and the underground organizations tending to de.stroy nrftional institu- tion.s. The commander so appealed to 400 Legionnaires as to bring them to their feet wdth a thunder of applause at the conclusion of the addres.s at the Lincoln hotel. In hi.s speech before Legion and auxiliary members from all sections of the state, and including some from Iowa, Commander Stevens warned that the problems facing the organization and the nation today are as formidable as those presented along the battle fronts overseas. Face Formidable Problème. Referring to those problems, he declared, "Your duties as aoldiers (lid not end when In November, 1918, you laid aside your rifles,” he declared. "We are today marching against a formidable enemy which will not be defeated until we have brought into use every ounce of adroitness we possess. This enemy will not give in until we have forced him to do so. "There nevej: was a time in the history of the American Legion when we have been so well fortified financially and from a standpoint of manpower -as we are today. We are members of an organization which has weeded out sectional prejudices and brought our states once again into one great union.” Asks Relief Contributions. Striking at the relative financial immunity of civil service, state and municipal workers. Commander Stevens urged that the legion regard it as its sacred duty to call on these hosts of citizens for ample contributions to their local community che.sts and to the various other social agencies. ‘They can easily and with good faith subscribe to this cause generously," he said. "Know’ing as we do know that the American people are behind the Legion 100 percent we can and shall draw from this class a fair portion of relief funds." The world "is turned upside down." he said, and the Legion will “straighten it up again.” Must Protect Disabled.

As veteran of fifteen con- .secutive congresses, Pou, who w’ould resume the chairmanship of the powerful rules committee after thirteen years of republican control, said he would "give up the chairmanship if it was proved to me that it was necessary to preserve harmony in our ranks." "With the democrats likely to elect a president next year, we should be willing to make personal sacrifices in order to preserve harmony,’’ the North Carolinian said. Pou expressed confidence that the differences would be composed in this he was joined by Representative Sol Bloom, of New York, who today conferred with the Tammany leader, John Cuiry of New York city.

Stringent measures will be taken, even if it becomes neces.sary to recall diplomats from the far In bis note Saturday, Briand .said: "Extension of the Incidents towards northern Manchuria is serious. The Information regarding those incidents supplied by the and Japanese governments cannot but increase the anxiety of the council and public opinion. As president of the council, I remind the Chinese and Japanese representatives that they have given assurances that their governments will take the necessary steps to avoid aggravating the situation. "The council plabed these solemn undertakings on record in its resolution of Sept. 30. To fulfill their undertakings. It now seems necessary that both governments without delay instruct the officers commanding their forces to remove all possibility of .sanguinary engagements between Chinese and Japanese troops, as further serious incidents may render more difficult the council’s efforts for the maintenance of peace and peaceful settlement of the dispute.” Briand also sent a note to Kenkichi Yoshizawa, advising him that Japanese seizure of Manchurian salt revenues, which are pledged to the service of foreign loans. Is calculated to aggravate the situation. Alfred Sze, Chinese repre.senta- tive in a note to the council, charged the Japanese military concentration at the Nonni river bridgehead in Manchuria is part of the deliberate policy of the Japanese army to drive the lawful representatives of the Chinese government out of all Manchuria, substituting a "puppet government.” League officials were astounded by Japan’s declaration, in her lat- note, that it would be impossible to evacuate the occupied portions of Manchuria before Nov. 16, unless the "five points" on which she has in.sisted are modified. Th« note constitutes an admission that Japan could evacuate before Nov. 16 without endangering her nationals, but maintains the occupation to achieve other aims. The council, at its meeting on the 16th, is expected to act immediately on Article 15 of the league covenant, which eliminates the necessity of unanimous consent to any course decided upon. Three decisions were expected to be taken; 1. A iolemn rtfclaratlon to th» world that Japan is a violator of the covenant and the KellORP pact. 2. Appointment of a committee of Invea- tlRation. ,3. Recall of the foreign ambasaadorg In Tokio, leaving economic prersure aa a final resort. THE WEATHER.

The 10,000 ton ship, one of the cruisers being built under the terms of the London treaty, slid down the ways at the New York Shipbuilding company’s yards to a crescendo of sirens and whistles. Miss Lucy Taggart, daughter of the late Senator Taggart of Indiana, was the sponsor. She christened the new cruiser with a bottle of water taken from two Indiana streams.

Her address, centering around her experiences in politics and the place of the woman in present-day civilization, was one of a .series she is making on a lecture tour. She arrived in Lincoln Saturday morning from Milwaukee, and will leave Sunday on a two week trip that will take her back to Washington. Referring to the world peace project, one for which considerable of her efforts are spent, Mrs. Owen declared that when every person in the worlij becomes so educated that he recogniaes his duty to the world, war will no longer he a menace. Public Favors Peace. She illustrated the point with a reference to an experience in Germany last summer, when she was in a German market. "A German woman told me then that if it were left to the people of the world to decide, there would never be war.” she said. "And I know she is right." Mrs. Owen forecast that such recognition of duties will not be long delayed, pointing to the fact that in a few years, aa history is judged, the American people have come to see their duty to the nation, instead o< to the community alone, v Women’s organizations, Mrs. Owen said, had been a tremendous influence in bringing about such changed outlook. She said America today is a great network of societies and organizations, all striving for the betterment of the country, and emphatically declared that such organ Nations assured America continued progress.

She lauded the work done by women’s groups in recent years pointing out that the first woman’s organization met shortly before the Civil war. She outlined the progress made since that time. As to the place of the woman in American life today, Mrs. Owen is very certain. Her place is in ihe home.
