J ) "IIFE1I1IES M MAJOR TO HER RIVAL Mrs. Hart Divorces Spouse to Permit Him to Marry Mrs Hall-OuMt, "Who Called Him "Perfect Passion Husband of "Other Woman" in Queer Love Quadrangle Relinquishes Her and Ke fuses to Name Her Lover CINCINNATI, Ohio, Oct. IS. The second episode of the "perfect passion" drama of Mrs. Shirley Hall-Quest, who abandoned her college-professor husband for the love of a former British army major, -was- enacted -here-today when Mrs. Frederick William Hart -obtained a divorce from the "perfect lover." That Mrs. Hart gave up her husband In the Interests of the "perfect passion," Just as Professor Alfred Lawrence Hall-Quest phllo- sophlcally relinquished his wife, is indicated by the settlement ar- ranged by the Harts out of court. ' Besides the court costs, Mrs. Hart is to receive 5000 in ensh and one-third of Hart's income for the remainder of her life. WOMAN DOES NOT fill I ELD lini RIVAI; - Although Professor Hall-Quest nobly sought to shield the name k of the man who won his wife away from him, out of respect to his former wife. Mrs. Hart did not hesitate to make public the name of the woman who won her husband. Professor Hall-Quest, connected with the University of Pittsburgh, aid his feelings were Just as primitive as any other person's might , be In a similar case, but that he would not reveal the other man's name, as it might cause his former wife unpleasantness. i IHS. IIAHT RKVKAI.S TALKS WITH HlSHAM. Pale. 'with her voice but a whisper, Mrs. Hart pave testimony today which absolved her husband from bonds that had become lrk- Vaome. r Responding to the question of her attorney, Mrs. Ilnrt said that he talked to her husband about this woman. "He admitted that he loved her," he said, "and said he could not "change his mind." Ill associations- with Mrs. Hall-Quest continued until May, 1923, Mrs. Hart said. Then her husband took her to England.' He gave as an excuse for this, she said, that he wanted time "to think it over." "We were there but two weeks," Mrs. Hart related. "He left me In London. He came back to Cincinnati and resumed his associations with Mrs. Hall-Quest. He wrote me, saying he could no longer live with me as hi wife. "He eventually came' back to I Cincinnati. I don't know how long 1 ha remained here. Then he went to Chicago some time in November. Mrs. Hall-Quest went with him. They lived in Chicago since then. He admitted he was living with her." In the divorce action brought Jn Chicago by Professor Hall-Quest against his wife last week, the cultured letters of Mrs. Hall-Quest to her husband were read Into the record. Hut In consonance with the professor's wishes, the name of the "perfect lover" was withheld throughout. "WE MTST BE ALL TO EACH OTHER" In one of her letters to her husband In explanation of her affection for the "other man," Mrs. Hall-Quest wrote: "I cannot conceive of life as possible apart from and I must therefore continue to trust that our life together may be one eventually sanctioned by socinl laws because they would, of bourse, bring greater contentment, peace and real ease of mind. If that can not be, then our lives must be lived entirely within our two selves, as In the past few months, and we must in truth be everything to each other." Hart did not appear in the courtroom in the trial here. In consequence of his failure to appear, Judge Hoffman said thnt although he had granted the di-'vorce, life 'would not issue, the for-mTelsrerTiHnrTttesaajr: Thisr however. Is but a technicality to comply with Jhe divorce court customs. Major Hart and Mrs. Hall-Quest, who west said to have been living in Evanston for the past yoa, were last reported to bo en route'to Minnesota to obtnln the anctlon of the church to their union. ; Hughes Dodges Death As Iron Bar Falls INDIANAPOLIS, Oct. 13.

NEW YORK, Oct. 13. Furtive-eyed Chinese, arms folded In their wide t flowing sleeves, slip from place to place In the shadows of old Chinatown, fearful what at any turn of the winding, crooked streets an assassin's bullet will 3ay them low. The tocsins of the "tong war" have been sounded and another of those mysterious feuds which sweep Chinese settlements the country over, is on. Just how the wars begin none but the Orientals ever know. The ".Hathen Chinee" Is peculiar. He has his own axes to grind. But thus far the war Is being fought at what might be called long range. It Is with pistols. Later If It follows the usual cycles, It will come to closer quarters with hatchets. It is evident Just now that this latest war In the metropolitan district holding New York, Brooklyn and Newark, N. J., in Its grip Is being fought out by the professional gun men of the famous tongs, ,tha Hip Slpgs and the ,On Leongs. These professional gun men shoot straight. When the war spreads to the amateur gunman then-thereis-danger, Indeed ri for an amateur Chinese pistol fighter usually closes his nlmond orbs before he pulls the trigger. Anything may happen then. Already the police have been called upon to guard some of the restaurants. The proprietors in Brooklyn seem to be especially fearful. Frantic efforts are being made by the Chinese merchants and the various "benevolent nsso-clatlons"....to bring about a truce In the fighting, but It Is admitted that pence Is not in sight. (Copyright, W21. by The Onkl.nd TRIBUNE.) S. F. POLICE ACT TO PREVENT OUTBREAK. SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 13. Tong disturbances which are causing trouble In several middle-western and eastern cities, have not spread to San Francisco's famous Chinatown, according to police headquarters today. Extra precautions are being taken by the Chinatown squad to keep the local Chinese quarter as quiet as possible. , OVER ON 1 GDNSUL AIDS SHANGHAI IS BRITISH RUM YIELDED UP; SHIP CREW BRIBE HINTED Officers of Seized Booze-Runner Contend Craft Was Forty Miles Off Coast, and Immune Under Treaty Prohibitionists Answer Boat Was Within 12 Miles of Farallones: Lone War Over Big Cargo Assured SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 13 That the rum runners intend to make a fight to prevent the confiscation of their vessel and the avert punishment of officers and crew were Indicated today when the British Consul retained the services of Attorney Kenneth Green to defend all those taken into custody. Green is a former United States attorney. At the same time it was announced by U. S. Attorney Sterling Carr that there was a likelihood that the defendants would be accused of conspiracy to violate the customs law In the landing of contraband, rather than the prohibi tion law. It la understood the officers of j the seized ship claim to have been j forty miles west of an Francisco i near Noon Day Rock. This, however, it is claimed is near the Faral-t lones, which are United States territory. Booze runners casting an-' chor at Noon Day Rock, one of the Shallowest parts of the Pacific, are . said to have been responsible for frequent severings of the Pacific cables. I The Quadra was loaded to the I limit with J750.000 liquor with which it had cleared recently from Vancouver, B. C, according to federal authorities. Prior to its capture the ship had already sent large quantities of the liquor ashore by means of small local rum-running vessels. It was the capture of j one of these that led to the seizure of the larger ship. An equally lm- puriani ia.uior, nowever, was me Quadra's misfortune in running out of fuel on its trip down the coast, which caused it to drift with-In the twelve-mile limit. i The Quadra, which was drifting j helplessly, as the result of the fall-i ure of several attempts to refuel ' from barges, was towed into the bay by the Shawnee. Captain Ford Immediately placed his case In the hands of the British consul. The revenue men declared today that they were acting entirely wlth-tn their rights under the Brltisn- American liquor seizure treaty, which was recently signed. This treaty, it Is declared, gives the United States the right to seize all foreign ships carrying liquor cargoes when these approach within 12 miles of the American coast line. ' Court Delays Vote Oh Mai Dougherty Writ BY UNITED PRESS LEASED WIRE TO TRIBUNE WASHINOTON Oct. 13. The supreme court today advanced to December' 1 the hearing of the contempt suit brought against Mai Daugherty, brother of the former attorney general, for his refusal to yield certain evidence to the senate Investigating committee.

He was freed from this ar rest on a writ of habeas corpus granted by the federal district court In Southern Ohio. From this Judgment the United States appealed to this court. The supreme court must decide In this case upon the extent of the authority of congress to compel a citizen to testify before an investigating committee.

Scientists Aim t n it "it io rep upnuman Rate By Radio as Crops Respond - f Wheat Yield Increased 25 Per Cent By Aerial Mas- sage, Professor Reports. By O. lu SCOTT (Bptclal Correipondent of Th Olkllnd TRIBUNE.) CHICAGO, Oct. 13. Radio has put such a kick into vegetable life that University of Chicago scient ists have begun to speculate about possibilities of Its use in rejuvena- ltng humans. Tales of radio farming;, brought to the university by Professor V. H. Blackman of the Imperial College of Science, London, have started this speculation over the ramifications Into which radio may find Itself diverted when, all Its secrets are known. WHEAT INCREASES 25 PER CENT. It was this same speculative nature that caused the imperial college of science to try out radio farming with results that Prof. Blackman describes as remarkable. The plants respond to the treatment with such a vim that a small tract, of wheat produced nearly 25 per cent more grain than did a similar tract untreated to the radio stimulus. "In - our experiments," Prof. Blackman explained, "we restriut-ed the work to a small p(pt of ground. About four feet .apart we stretched insulated wires carrying high voltage currents, sometimes as high as 100,000 volts. As a result of the radio application we fiad very substantially increased yields of grain." ' This method of farming, the professor said, is far too expensive to be practical, but if the same rejuvenating effects can be caused on humans radio application would be worth the cost which would be much more restricted than that needed to radlollze a whole grain field. RADIO PUTS PEP ONTO CELL LIFE. The radio puts more activity into j cell life, according to the scientific explanation. Respiration is lJm proved w.ltn Increased proto plasmic activity so that the whole plant benefits. In tact, plants have such a hankering for radio waves that scientists have now come to the opinion that the reason , broadcasting in summer is so much less satisfac tory than in winter is because of the avidity with which vegetable life absorbs the energy' sent out. Fans may reap an indirect benefit in the form of better crops' if the amount of radio activity becomes sufficient to have a general effect. tCDprrlgbt 1024. The Cblcago Dtllr Newi.)
