PARIS, June 25. (By the Associated
Press.) France has decided to require
complete reparation from Germany for
the sinking of the German warships
at Scapa Flow. This announcement
was made by the minister of marine
to the naval committee of the chamber
of deputies yesterday.-' It was declared
that the act of the Germans violated
both the armistice and the peace treaty.
v iscount Gustave Lie Kerguezec, mem
ber of the naval committee of the
chamber of deputies, told the budget
committee of - the chamber Monday
that he had warned the French min
istry of marine previously that the
German fleet interned in Scapa Flow
was not being watched with sufficient
The budget committee decided to ask
Premier Clemenceau for further infor
mation on the 'Subject of the sinking
of the ships, and the- steps the French
government proposed to take to have
the loss made good..
Some criticism is directed at the
British admiralty, the Journal saying:
"No article in the armistice forbade
the maintenance of British guards
aboard the German ships. .
It is likely that the whole subject
ill come up for discussion In par
liament, '
The council of three has referred the
question relative to the sinking of the
German fleet in Scapa Flow to a com
mission of experts, which will deter
mine whether the armistice conditions
were violated.

PARIS. .The final chapter can now
be added to the story of Lieutenant
Frank Luke, Jr., the young Arizonia
flier, who after a meteoric career
among foremost American aviators,
vanished from sight over the German
lines in the first days of the Argonne
drive. His grave has been found In
the cemetery of the village of Murvaux,
east of DiMi-sur-Meuse, says the Stars
and Stripes.
From the stories of the villagers can
be tpieced together a narrative which
shows that he fought to the last mo
ment and, as always, fought alone and
fought hard.

said of him that he seemed possessed
of a strange notion that he must tie
Fonck's record In one season.
There was no holding Luke In check.'
He picked fights against heavy odds,
flew alone when he was under orders
not to, flew when he was supposed to
be safe in camp, and, toward the end,
went to strange fields for gas and am
munition lest he be held at his own
airdrome. Indeed on that last day
there were orders out to sentence him
to a month of ground work as soon
as he showed up.

flying of the future will be done at an
altitude of six miles. Aviators will
be trained to get above the storm zone
so that weather may' be eliminated from

But the best" is to come, hold your
breath. The air voyage from New Tork
to London soon may require only three

Pennsylvania railroad between New
York -and this city.
All of this, seemingly incredible as
It is, will be a ccomplished with the
"Allplane." a new high-powered craft
conceived by Samuel D. Mott, M. E., ah
Edison pioneer and charter member of
the Aero Club of America, who ad
dressed the second Pan-American aero
nautical congress here tonight on what
he regarded as the certain future of
attainments in aviation.
Mr. Mott declared that with the de
velopment of his altoplane Idea there
will be an antithesis of the submarine.
The process of reasoning that Holland
applied a craft to go beneath the sea
to 15 or 20 miles aloft if necessary. It
Is obviously a matter of equipment plus
climbing ability of aircraft designed for
the purpose.
"Where is the storm limit? As
moisture and varying temperature is
the fundamental of storms, their great
est development is near the surface and
wholly confined to the storm limit.
Wind state is a varying temperature.
Over the hottest regions of Africa zero
conditions have been detected within
1500 feet of the ground."

Mott said
"We have read of many men tarrying
in New Foundland for several weeks
waiting, waiting, for the weather.
That trial was a glorious undertaking,
our navy's expedience was wise and all
honor to the brave men attempting the
test. But I submit that waiting indefi

long-distance flying over land or sea

Justin Asserts Britanic Fear of Irish
Question Influenced Secretary,
NEW YORK. England's- fear to
bring the Irish question before th
peace conference, because of the injus
tice of her occupation of Ireland, led
to Secretary Lansing's refusal of
hearing to delegates of the Irish Re
public. This charge was made by Jus
tice Daniel F. Cohalan. He said:
The action of Mr. Lansing with ref
erence to the Irish delegates is typica
of the conditions which prevail in Paris.
The influence of England on the work
ing of the peace conference is over
shadowing. Not alone has the form
of the league of nationa as proposed
by her statesmen been adopted, but
practically every question that has
come up for consideration has been
settled in a way that will contribute
most to the strengthening at least tern
porarily, of the British empire.-
"The case of Ireland Is to be denied
a hearing to Its representatives, be
cause Messrs. Walsh, Dunee and Ryan,
when they went to Ireland, talked
about Irish independence. I wonder
whether Mr. Lansing thought these
gentlemen went to Ireland to view the
scenery, or to praise the rule of Dublin
"The truth is that Lloyd George the
artful dodger of British oolitic:
frightened by the storm raised by the
Tories of England, sought some way to
refuse a hearing to the Irish delegates.
"England fears to bring the question
before the peace conference because
she knows, as the Irish contend, that
her rule in Ireland is founded only upon
mignt ana naxea xorce. if she had
good case, she would not hesitate to
submit to a court dominated by herself
and made up of Japan, France, Italy,
cieigium, Portugal and others, even
though the greVt liberty loving coun
try ot America were a member of it.'

Lest we forget, if General Wood's
warning had been heeded, the cost of
the war to America in dollars and cents
would Wave been very much less than
it was and we would not have been
forced to depend upon England to
clothe our troops and France to supply
them with cannon ammunition.
