WASHINGTON. Dec 11. Early
accomplishment of a complete
world wide economic stabilization
Is foreseen by Secretary Mellon.
Both at home and abroad, the
secretary declared in his annual re
port submitted to congress today,
developments of the last year have
been so satisfactory that the way
Is now clear for a more complete
world recovery." Mr. Mellon be
lieves the underlying factors of the
business situation here were fun'
damentally sound and "warrant op
timism for the future.'
While the secretary saw no ap
proaching cloud on the economic
sky, he warned against expansion
and speculative tendencies. The
program of public economy has had
its effect, as has the public debt re-
2 ; tlrement program, he said, but
K i "there is some tendency for the
K : consuming public to buy every con
9 I celvable commodity on time' and
A I mortgage future earnings." On the
A j other hand, he found business men
'A conducting their affairs with re-
2 straint and caution in order that
R the prosperity may not bring on
R carelessness.
g "It Is hoped, furthermore." he
f added, "that the speculative ten
A . dency in real estate in some com
5j j munltles may not proceed to the
2 1 point of undermining the spirit of
E caution In business."

Mr. Mellon reviewed the depart
ment's work In enforcement of pro
hibition and expressed the belief
that progress had been made in re
ducing the supply of Illicit liquor
through -the reorganization direct
ed by Assistant Secretary Andrews.
He suggested that expansion of the
coast guard was necessary If It
were to continue efficient work In
Its dual capacity as a conserver of
life and property and a guard
against rum smuggling, and reiter
ated that the department's policy
was to attack sources of supply
rather than to attempt local police

hardly begun when, a trail of
smoke to the northeast proclaimed
the arrival of the loyalist forces by
Sometime later a warship, once
the American "Iowa" but now a
Greek battleship, stole into the
outer harbor, and luug range shells
began to whistle overhead. One
dropped nine yards from SUss
Cuah man's office door. Another
dropped near her clinic, where the
doctor had forty little patients ln
the waiting room.
Before the day was over, there
came also a squadron of loyalist
aeroplanes, which dropped thous
ands of small slips of paper, In
scribed with propaganda messages.
Miss Cushman sent peremptory let
ters to the commander of the op
posing forces, demanding that they
move their war away from her or
phanage. No answers came, but
during the night a ten-Inch shell
exploded on the campus, so close
to a tent where 60 little trachoma
patients were housed, that it got
Miss Cushman out of bed and
across the campus with her bath
robe flapping in the breeze. "Are
you all right. boy8t" she asked.
"Oh, yes," they answered, "we
did just as you told us." Every
one of them, wise In the ways of
war, was flat on the ground under
his bM.
At daybreak the next morning
Miss Cushman sent an ultimatum
to the rebel garrison, demanding
that the aeroplanes be moved
away from the school. She waited
an hour, and when no reply came,
she summoned the largest of her
hoys and with their aid rolled the
five big air birds off the campus
and a half mile beyond. She fol
lowed this with a personal call on
the commander of the battleship,
demanding that he move the war
somewhere else.
It Is not known Just how much
her reouest had to do with termin

them for some distance through the
sand, she felt it would be antl-cllm-ax
to let one of them propel her
through the air. "And besides,"
she says, "I do not like aeroplanes,
and never will."
Miss Cushman has lived In (he
Near East for many years, and has
been one of Ibe most important di
plomatic figures in that troubled
area. For nursing work In the
Balkan war she was awarded the
