Former Emperor, in Volume Jusl
Published, Recalls Manila Bay
and Other Incidents.
AMSTERDAM. March 12. Former
Emperor William of Germany has
written for private distribution
book by which he attempts to show
that England was responsible for the
world war. In the volume he has
collated historical facts and data rel
atlve to International agreements be
tween all countries Involved In th
war from 1884 to 1914, and these fact;
have been marshaled In parallel col
umns by Count Hohenzollern, say
the newspaper Het Volk.
He declares England's responsibil
!ty for the war centered la her "plot
to Isolate Germany," and refers to
the mobilization of English banks In
April, 1914, preparations for war by
the British fleet In June, the same
year, and the Russian mobilization
of forces July IS.
"Thus," says the newspaper, "the
former emperor tries to find adher
ents for the theory that allied mob
ilization made It Impossible for Ger
many to prevent the war."
The former monarch worked on the
book many months, getting up a table
of dates, intending to show that the
world's history during the JO years
leading up to the war showed better
than comment a world plot against
Germany. Among other things, the
book Is said to cite the American-
German-British incident in Manila bay
dufing the Spanish-American war. In
which Admiral Dewey's action In
forcing the Germans to observe neu
trality was backed up by the British
fleet, as showing an alliance be
tween the British and Americans.
French, British and Russian treat'
les, together with incidents, are cited.
Seventy copies were printed and
distributed for private reading.

Three hundred members of the
Northwestern Radio club last night
danced in the Glencoe school to the
music of a phonograph in the home

The music was transmitted by radio
and was received in the ballroom by
an amplifier which magnified the

man Gives Result of Interview
With New President.
Senator George E. Chamberlain will
be appointed on the United States
shipping board. President Harding
has given positive. assurance of this
to Ralph E. Williams, republican na
tional committeeman for Oregon, who
returned to Portland last night.
"No matter what rumors may be
circulated regarding the personnel of
the shipping board," said Mr. N 111
lams, "the people of Oregon can rest
assured that Senator Chamberlain
will be a member. He will not be
the chairman, but he will be on the
board. The shipping board is the Big
gest Job the government has to fill.
It has $4,000,000,000 under its control.
The members will receive 112,000 a

the world to investigate conditions,

During the few days that I was In
Washington I knew of three men who
were tentativelly placed on the board

many . more changes before the com
plexion of the board is formed, but

be on It.
Forbes Strongly Supported.

the strong contenders. He has the
backing of the shipping interests in
Seattle, San Francisco and New Tork.

his friends one night and telegrams

with him, 'giving assurances of sup

should be on the board his Interests
would be more Inclined toward Port
land than San Francisco or the At
lantic coast. It is difficult to con
ceive of pressure being made on the
president for the various applicants.
The terms of the present shipping
board virtually expire tonight, but
the president has requested the mem
bers to hold over until April.

his desire for me to be one of his
assistants, for the news was carried

(Copyright, 5021, by The Oreronlan.)
NEW TORK, March 12. (Special.)
Millions of American women are
secret cigarette smokers.
This was the statement of one of
the best-known manufacturers of
women's cigarettes in the United
States, to whom the writer today
showed that portion of the annual
report of the Internal revenue bureau
which deals with cigarettes. Accord
ing to the report cigarette smoking
among women Is steadily increasing.
They are now smoking approximately
20,000,000,000 cigarettes a year, and
they are held responsible for an In
crease of 60 per cent In the sale and
manufacture of cigarettes in the
United States In the last 12 months.
"These figures look big to a person
on the outside." said the manufac
turer. "If a person lives in a town
or even a medium-sized city he prob
ably does not see many women smok
ing. They smoke in secret. He should
have a look at our books and see
what a tremendou: mail-order busi
ness we do with women. They don't

their next-door neighbor to know
they smoke. When they send In their

The statement issued by the pack
