CT?ICACO...Oet. 27- (AP).
Mayor .William Hale Thompson,
w,o heads the British Hon hunting
expedition In Chicago, . today
trained his artillery on the public
library and fired a broadside cal
culated to frighten the game from
Utat hunting ground.
The mayor, wrote a letter to the
board of trustees charging, that
pro-British and on-American prop
aganda was being .disseminated In
the form of reading courses spon
cored by the American libray as
sociation. v; ' '
.- Mayor Thompson' called atten
tion o f the trustees to a booklet
: by "Herbert Adams .' Gibbons ,f
Princeton, entitled "Reading with
a Purpose Europe in Our Day,"
distributed by the American Li
bray association from the Chicago
library and advocating the read
ingof six books. Four of these
books, he charged. Including one
by Dean Inge, contained matter
which he considered un-American.
He quoted' from this : book -and
from the descriptive booklet at
length and asked the board to en
lighten him-on what was meant
by advising th reading of such

ground. Mr. iMcAndrew, suspend
ed on charge of Insubordination,
faced bis accusers before the
board of education yesterday and
heard fresh charges of pro-British
history texts being nsed In
the schools. The hearing was con
tinued until next week.
Meanwhile somo of Mayor

that "for being out of. humors-Mr.
Coo lldge was. unusually cordial as
he spoke of the senator's repeated

What, the ' president ' did J. em
phasize, wrote Senator Fess, was
that, he had found the senator's
statements "embarassing" because
of a feeling that the public might
be misled as to their real source
Thereupon Mr Fess took occasion
to assure the public that j he was
speaking i for himself alcae, and
was " not 1 assuming to ' speak tLa
sentiments of Mr. Coolidge.v ;

H PRAISK FOR ADMIRAL :
: HOT SPRINGS Ark., Oct. 27.
--(AP) -Representative J. -Y.
McClintlc of Oklahoma, second
ranking democratic member of the
house naval : affairs : committee,
said in a. statement published to
day that he would try to obtain
from that committee a vote ef
thanks for Rear Admiral Thomas
P. .Magruder for his recent 'arti
cle about the navy.
"Everyone knows that during
the early period of Secretary Wil
bur's tenure In office, the same
publication that gave to the world
Admiral Magruder's timely and
constructive criticism of the navy
published Secretary Wilbur's lit
tle 'bunny rabbit' and 'brown
bear children stories, there show
ing thoughts uppermost In his
mina." . . - - -
Commenting' on the recall of
Rear Admiral Magruder from the
command of the Philadelphia na
vy yard,? Mr. McClintlc said that
the secretary's 1 attitude proves
conclusively that the small coterie
of officers that control the activ
ities of the navy would scuttle the
ship ot state rather than . allow
anyone to minimize their impor
tance in the maintenance of un
necessary yards, and battleships.
