Crisis of Case Expected to Be
Past by This Morning, Says
Aviiile House Bulletin. '
WASHINGTON, I. C. Sept. 11.
At 2:15 this morning:, although there
had, been no further official word
on her condition since the bulletin
issued at 9 o'clock last night, Mrs.
Harding was understood to be rest
ing relatively free from pain, and
etilt holding the slight improve
ment which the bulletin said her
condition had indicated during Sun
day. Dr. Sawyer, who has been in al
inost constant attendance at Mrs.
Harding's bedside for four days and
nights, left the .White House at
10:30 o'clock tonight for a rest in
his own apartments. He remarked
on leaving that he was pleased with
the favorable symptoms of the pa
tient. At that hour she was asleep.
Woman Friend leaTts.
Mrs. Edward B. McLean, wife of
the publisher of the Washington
Post, an intimate friend of Mrs.
Harding, who had been at the White
House since last night, also left for
her own home about 10 o'clock.
"Mrs. Harding is considerably bet
ter," she said. "That is just why
I am going, to my own home tonight.
She is quiet now and going to sleep.
I believe that there is an excellent
chance for her recovery."

WASHINGTON, D. C Sept. 10.
The condition of Mrs. Florence

for several days, was so much im

attending physicians as to the ne
cessity for a surgical operation has
been deferred until tomorrow morn

House physician, made . the an
nouncement of the favorable turn
In Mrs. , Harding's critical illness
shortly after 9 o'clock tonight.
The decision to postpone a sur
gical operation which for a time
today was believed to be inevitable
was reached at a consultation par
ticipated in by Dr. Sawyer, his son.
Dr. Carl Sawyer, Dr. Charles E.
Mayo, of Rochester. Minn., who ar
rived at the White House this morn
ing, and Dr. John Finney, of Balti
more. Bulletin la Issued.
At 9:05 P. M., immediately after
the consultation, Dr. Sawyer issued
the following bulletin:
"Mrs. Harding's condition tonight
is as follows:
"She has had a fairly comfortable
day, with such indications of a
slight improvement that the deci
sion relative to surgical relief was
postponed until Monday morning.
"C. E. SAWYER, M. X."
While the bulletin is the first
lu-.ictuic l"j nttve come irum ,
the White House bedside since Fri-
day, when Mrs. Harding became des-
pei-ately ill with acute congestion
of the kidneys, it was stated unof
ficially that the distinguished pa
tient is not yet out of danger. The
immediate apprehension . has beeu
greatly relieved and the physicians
cow hold out much hope for Mrs.
Harding's recovery if there is no
relapse. By tomorrow morning, it
was stated, the crisis may be passed.
Blood Test Made.
The consultation tonight followed
a blood test taken at the direction
of Dr. Mayo soon after he reached
the White House. Laboratory spe
cialists worked on the test until
evening, when Dr. Finney returned
from Baltimore. This test, together
with other laboratory tests made at
Dr. Mayo's direction, showed unmis
takably, it is reported, that the
toxic condition of the patient, so
threatening yesterday and last
night, had been considerably .re
lieved. Dr. Mayo reached the White
House at 10 o'clock this morning,
hastened to Washington at
the request of the president. After
examining Mrs. Harding, Dr. Mayo
made no statement for publication,
but at- 4 o'clock this afternoon it
was announced that he and Dy.

with Dr. John Finney, of Johns

pHICAGO, Sept. 10. Two shafts
of light racing through a steel tube
one mile in length and a foot in
diameter is the latest test devised
for the Einstein theory of relativity
by Professor Albert A. Michelson,
noted physicist of the University of
Chicago, who has just returned from
California, where he conducted ex
tensive experiments at Mount Wil
Professor Michelson went to Cali
fornia last spring on invitation of
the Carnegie institution of Pitts
burg, with the object of applying
further tests to the Einstein theory,
and also to establish the actual ve
locity of light. While there he ad
vised and perfected equipment for
both classes of experiments. The
phase of the Einstein theory chal
lenged by Professor Michelson per
tains to the effect of the rotation
of the earth on a beam ef light.
Einstein has contended that the

theory, Professor Michelson, who
I startled the scientific world in 1920
by his announcement that he had
obtained the actual dimensions of
Betelgeuse and found its volume to
be 27 times greater than the sun,
told of his more recent experiments
with the Einstein doctrine.
At each of the four corners of a
square, he said, measuring a -'quarter
of a mile on each side, a mirror
was placed, from one corner a beam
of light was dispatched around one
way on the direction of the rota
tion of the earth. Simultaneously
another beam was dispatched
around the other way opposite , to
the direction 'of the earth's rotation, i
By use of a delicate instrument
Professor Michelson 'was able to
identify the beams upon their re
turn. If they returned at exactly
the same instant, the Einstein
theory would have been repudiated.
If they returned simultaneously, he
said, it would have established that
the rotation qf the earth exercises
no influence oyer the beam of light.
"We almost succeeded this sum
mer in our experiments," he said.
"Atmospheric interference was all
that prevented the complete success
of our "work. Temperature Varia
tions in. the raatintains, and , valleys
out there militated against us.
" "We proved our principle was
right and now we plan to eliminate
atmospheric interference by con
struction of a steel tube, one foot
in diameter around the entire one
mile course. By making this a
vacuum, all such interference is
eliminated. We expect to quickly
complete our experiment next sum
mer." ' -

their flowering gardens, even the
cows in trimly enclosed pastures,
looked like toys or miniature mod

PARIS', Sept. 10. The Greek

settled in a few days and settled
finally, according to Angora ad
vices, the problem of how Asia
Minor is to be divided, a problem
with which diplomacy has been
struggling for three years.
Smyrna, which has been in.a state
of chaos for three days since the
Greek high commissioner took to a
warship in fear of his life, is now
a hotbed of typhus and plague and
is crowded with thousands of refu
gees without food.
Turks Take Charter.
The' allied consuls and naval con
tingents, including . the Americans,
had begun the restoration of order
as soon as they arrived but the
Turks have taken charge of Smyrna
and their first efforts have been
directed toward stamping out epi
demics and relieving distress.
Smyrna, which has been the goal
of the Nationalists, as Angora was
that of the Greeks, soon will wit

Angora, the ceremonious and tri
umphant entry into the city of
Mustapha Kemal Pasha and others
of the nationalist government. The

The Greek soldiers evacuated
from Smyrna were ordered taken
to islands in the Aegean sea, there
to be disarmed and demobilized so
as to avoid possible trouble in
Arthens, but the soldiers are reported
to have threatened the ship officers
and compelled them to steer for
Piraeus, the port of Athens, where
they disembarked and marched
through the streets shouting insults

Local Colony Sees Pretty Daugh
' ter of Greece Become Bride
or Old Playmate.
A colorful Greek wedding which
brought a touch of the Levant to
Portland was held yesterday at Hi
bernian hall, 340 '.Russell street,
when Panagoula Drougas, pretty
daughter of Greece, be.came the wife
of her old playmate and sweetheart,
James Meletis, a local business man.
Archbishop Panteleimon. of Neap
olls, Palestine, who is a delegate to
the Episcopalian convention, per
formed the ceremony, assisted by
Father ' Karahaleos, head of the
Portland Greek congregation.
The distinctive feature of having
an archbishop preside over a wed
ding brought practically the entire
community of Greeks living in Port
land to the affair. An archbishop, it
is said, does not often officiate at a
wedding. However, the archbishop
consented to perform the services
yesterday because both the bride
and bridegroom came from his own
birthplace in Argos, Greece.
The entire ceremony was chanted
by both the church heads and sev
eral singers from the local church.
Flower wreaths connected to each
other covered the hfads of both
the bride and bridegroom.' These
were changed back and forth from
the bride and bridegroom and vice
versa by the archbishop as a sign
of the inseparableness and perfect
union of the two.
With the church, heads wearing
their elaborate ceremonial robe,
and the bride and bridegroom lit
erally covered with flowers and rice,
the affair was really a pageant.
At the end of the service the
friends and relatives of the couple
lined up to present their best
wishes, kiss the bride, and drop a
small contribution of money in a
platter placed before the couple.
