PRINCE OF WALES
LONDON, Aug. 31. (AP)
Gene Tunney continues to en
counter dif f icultiea Jn his efforts
to avoid the public eye.
Today there came an Intima
tion that a rather well-known
young Englishman Edward,
Prince of Wales would welcome
a call from him. Such a sugges
tion is royafecommand in England
and soon Gene Tunney was on his
way to St. James palace where
Wales lives in a modest apart
ment of the historic building. ,
'They met there, and for half ah
hour th two young men 'talked
about boxing, sports in general,
Tunney's walking tour of Europe
with Thornton Wilder, and Tun
Gene Won't Tell -
Tunney, himself, when It was
all over, declined to say just what
they had discussed, but from an
other source a general idea of the
conversation was gained.
H. R. H. expressed his regrets
that the golf match he had prom
ised himself , with the former
world's heavy champion could not
take place, the imminence of his
African trip marking it impracti
cable. The prince is said to have
interposed, "It might have been
a good one-round battle."
Tunney agreed, and then re
turned the compliment with an ex
pression of best wishes for Wales'
Carries Walking Stick
There was no attempt on the
part of the British heir to draw
the former pugilist out on his
taste for literature and . books.
Tunney went to St. James. not In
the court dress required for for.
mal occasions but as a simple
American citizen, a role he' likes
best to portray. , He was dressed
in the same blue suit and hat he
has been wearing about London,
his only concession to London
styles being a walking stick; even
it was not "fancy" but instead was
the healthy Irish hawthorne
stick presented to him last week
Even at St. James Tunney was
very much the center of attrac
tion. The lackeys, footmen, and
servants of the palace caught
some hint of the former cham.
pion's visit, and when he appeared
dozens' of them perched them
selves at advantageous positions
to get a glimpse of the man who
had "beaten Dempsey. Gene's
meeting with Wales was enough
excitement for one day and to
night he dined quietly in his room
at his hotel.

It was by far the most over,
whelming defeat yet suffered by
the Britons although they hare
never won the cup.
Only Charles "Chick" Evans, of
Chicago, . failed to come through
to make it a grand slam. The
"Chick" fought a brilliant up
hill battle, but his opponent, T. A.
Torrance, who continually broke
his spirit by sinking putts from
10 to 30 feet, won by1.he slender

everybody owns '; or drives

of a large percentage of the peo

and endanger lives,! wild-eyed
youths pilot ears of juggernaut
through the streets, j Added to
this the prevailing ' modes" of
feminine dress contribute their
share toward the traffic haz

of masculine motorists. So, just

about It all, the New Oregon

WALDO O. MILLS, local

take out the 'pumpkins' at the

PARIS. Aug, 31. (AP) Now
that the Kellogg-Briand treaty for
the outlawry of war has been sign

can be revealed that the inception
of the idea was based upon the
work of an Associated Press re
porter. Smith F. Reavis, who was
acting merely with the usual rep

the tenth anniversary of Ameri

1927. M. Briand, the "man of
Locarno," winner of the Nobel
peace prize and foremost of the
statesmen who were seeking per
manent peace for Europe and the
world, seemed peculiarly 'chosen
to speak of the aftermath of the
war and the world tranquility
that he so ardently desired.
Tne request was renewed on
several occasions and M. Briand
promised to prepare a message to
the American people to be trans

Press. To him also, the occasion
seeme'd particularly appropriate to
set before all peoples the desire of
France to banish the spirit of war.
On the morning of April 6. 1927
a messenger from the French for

Press bureau in Paris with a doc

French and, American statesmen
for something more than a dip

esire for peace and to furnish a
solemn example to other peoples.
France would be willing to enter
into an engagement with America

"The renunciation of war as an
instrument of national policy is
a conception already familiar to
the signatories of the League cov

engagement subscribed to in the
same spirit by the United States
toward another nation such as
France, should greatly contribute
in the eyes of the world to en

no which the International policy
of peace is being erected, thus
the two great friendly nations,
equally'devoted to the cause of
peace, would furnish the world the
best illustration of the truth that

obtained is not disarmament but
the practice of peace."
