Bad Man of Movies Denies Physi

Adds "I'm Broke."
fBy Chicago Tribune Leased "Wire.)
LOS ANGELES, Cal.. Sept. 16.
Bill Hart let go today with both
He assailed the motives behind
an attack upon him by his wi.fe; he
denied any physical violence on his
part in his marriage; he declared
he would not contest his wife's di
vorce; he characterized the whole
affair as dastardly and yellow.
"I'm broke," he said.
"Having taken three-quarters of
a million dollars, all my life's earn
ings from' me, and no more being
available, my wife is now deter
mined to make a star of herself,
even if she has to ruin me in doing
"If her attorney, Milton Cohen,
makes any allegations of physical
violence against me, I'll lick him so
you won't recognize him.
"If I can't do that in court, I'll
drill a hole in his stomach ' so big
you can drive a twenty mule team
borax wagon through it.
"If anyone is guilty of cruelty she
certainly is," he stated. "All these
charges and innuendos attributing
brutality to me have no foundation
in fact, and are perpetrated entirely
for the purpose of ruining me and
making her in the picture business.
"In effect she says: 'Come
through with some more money or
I'll ruin you.'
"All this is being done now, with
out any legal proceedings, because
she knows it will never be backed
up in any court action. She is try
ing me and advertising herself at
the court of public opinion.
"Thi3 whole affair is doubly cruel
because we had no trouble other
than incompatibility. There was no
other man, no other woman, no
jealousy. She simply could not .be
satisfied with anything and she
nagged at me until it became im
possible to live with her. My sis
ter did not have anything to do
'If she thinks she can separate
me from that boy she's wrong. If
she tries much more of this. I'll go
into court and fight for him. If
she is reasonable in any divorce
she may plan, I'll not contest it; I
certainly don't want to hold her."
Hart also stated the terms of hi3
property settlement with his wife,
stating that he settled $150,000 on
her and $100,000 on his son, $1200
monthly to . Mrs. Hart and $100 to
her mother. "I pay all the bills,
too," he added.

NO ENTANGLEMENTS AIM
United States Not Involved in Is
sues Beyond Caring for Its
Citizens and Property.
WASHINGTON, D. C, Sept. 16.
(By the Associated Press.) The
near eastern situation resulting
from the disaster at Smyrna is be
ing watched with closest interest by
government officials, although it is
emphasized that the United States is
not involved in the issues beyond
caring for its citizens and their In
terests in the war-swept zone,.
Official circles emphasize that, al
though the United States is na
turally interested in the freedom of
the straits, it has not taken any part
in any of the territorial or boundary
settlements in the near east, has not
been at war with Turkey and is not
a party to the negotiations which
resulted In the signature of the
peace treaty at Sevres in August,
It is understood that the Ameri
can government has assumed no
commitments and entered into no
understanding which would involve
it in any way in the territorial read
justments which may result from
thj apparent successes of th.e Tur
kish nationalist movemenyanfl the
Turkish reoccupat'on of Smyrna.
It is asserted that although the
United States has not taken part in
th' territorial settlement in Turkey,
nor entered into any commitments
which would involve it in any way,
art the present time, this does not
mean that the government is pre
pared to abandon the interests of its
citizens in that country, whether of
a philanthropic or commercial
nature. v -
Straits! Freedom Problem.
These interests, it was pointed out,
would naturally be affected by the
final determination in regard, to the
freedom of the straits and the dis
cussions of this question, therefore,
are being followed in Washington.
This government has consistently
maintained that the Turks' denunci
ation of the capitulations treaty in
1914 at the instigation of Germany
and Austria-Hungary did not re
lieve her of these obligations. The
United States protested against their
abrogation in 1914 and again after
the armistice and has enforced ' its
rights under the capitulations treaty
in Constantinople and Smyrna and
other parts of the Turkish empire
where consular officers could, be
In cases where mandates have
been proposed for various former
Turkish territories the Washing
ton government has maintained that
it had the right to be consulted be
fore the mandates were put into ef
fect, since they had been secured as
the result of the common victory
over Germany and her ally, Turkey.
In the same way the government
has insisted that capitulatory rights
should remain in force In mandated
territories until the mandate has
formally gone into effect, which, by
placing a responsible European
power in control of the territory,
would give the government a prop
erly constituted ' authority with
which to deal in taking up ques
tions which involved American na
tionals and their interests.
Relief Agencies at Work.
Meanwhile, the sufferings of
Americans in Smyrna or elsewhere
in the territories of the Greco-Turk
hostilities have been sufficiently
alarming to draw many agencies

President Campbell Points Out
Rapid Growth of School and
Demand for Buildings.
Friers of the-Univjrsity of Ore
gon yesterday turned over $25,000 In
cash and securities to a committee
representing the institution for the
purpose of financing a general
building and development campaign
to supplement such betterments as
may be possible with millage funds
derived from state taxes.
"Ten Million Dollars In Ten
Tears" was adopted as the slogan
of the campaign. The necessity of
private benefactions in addition to
state support was reported to the
board of regents by President Camp
bell at the meeting of the board last
fall, at which time he pointed out
that the university enrollment was
increasing nearly 20 per cent a year
while property valuations, the basis
of the millage fund, had been for
some years nearly stationary, until
the discrepancy was becoming seri
ous. The proposed campaign was
discussed by the board of regents
at that time and approved by the
alumni at commencement in June.

In handling delicate matters per

UN IC?V II
Executive's Friends Said to Be
Acting to Prevent Senate
WASHINGTON. D. C, Sept. 16.
Information that President Harding
had made up his mind definitely to
veto the soldiers' bonus bill reached
senate leaders today from some of
his close advisers. They, said hi
message of disapproval would be
sent to the house Tuesday.
After receiving this word the m
jority leaders made an informal pre
liminary canvass of the senate
which was said to have shown 34
votes against overriding a veto, or
two more than the number neces
sary to prevent final enactment of
the bonus legislation.
This margin was understood, how
ever, to be regarded by some friends
of the president as too narrow and
they expected Mr. Hardlns; to call
several senators to the White House
before Tuesday for a discussion of
the question. With many senators
absent from Washington, it was as
serted by some that it was diffi
cult to Judge senate sentiment at
Many of these absentees. It was
stated, could not possibly get back
to Washington in time to vote.
Five senators are in Europe, while
four others are In the far west.
Several others would be detained by
their own illness or that of members
of their families. Every effort will
be made to pair absentees, but it was
explained that it might not be pos
sible to pair all of them, and it was
conceded that the absence of pairs in
even a few cases might have a ma
terial effect on the outcome.
Mr. Harding's advisers expect him
to set forth In vigorous manner his
reasons for a veto. From the first
he has insisted that bonus legisla
tion should carry a method of
financing it, and he also has voiced
disapproval of "piecemeal" payment
to the world war veterans, declaring
that it would be better to postpone
payment than to make it in such a
