ROBINSON SUB1S HIS CAMPAIHP LONOKE. Ark., Aug. 31 (AP) At home with those who have known him since boyhood Senator Rqblnson In his first speech to day as a full fledged democratic vice-presidential nominee warned his fellow citizens to beware of hired republican-agents which he said were in the Southland to "in tensify religious and sectional prejudice." Speaking .In the auditorium of the high school building the sen ator declared that the religions faith of the party presidential standard bearer Gevernor Smith was "simple l and old fashioned." "He believes in a providence that guards the just and reward vlrtne," he said. . . "He has never been a Catholic governor.

'(AP) William Randolph Hearst, newspaper publisher, today in Paris in answer to a query from the Brooklyn Eagle predicted the defeat of Governor Smith on the prohibition Issue and because of the governor's connection with Tammany hall.

T 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 ney's future. 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' African tour. 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 in Dublin. Attracts Attention 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. Here's Bad News For Hundreds of - Salem -Residents Marx FOUlsen.

GOLF WEST Famous Walker Cup To Be Retained Another Year In United States British Team Wins Just One Match In Two Days At Chicago Club CHICAGO GOLF CLUB, CHI CAGO, Aug. 31 (AP) The Walker cub emblematic of inter national amateur golf suprema cy, remains where it always has been in the United States. Paced and inspired by the bril liancy of its captain, the mighty Bobby Jones, of Atlanta, Ameri ca's team crushed Great Britain almost as mercilessly in the sin gles 'matches today as it did in yesterday's 5-9-ball foursomes, re taining the trophy by 11 matches to 1. 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 est of margins, one up. The honor of turning in the most lop-sided victory naturally went to the impeccable Bobby. who trimmed T. P. Perkins, 13 and 12. The victory also gave Bobbr the unofficial champion- snip of the world as both he and Perkins are king of the amateurs In their respective countries. Bobby's golfing mate from At lanta, Watts Gunn, had the next largest margin, defeating R. A. Hardman, 11 and 10. ELKS COUNT! ASTORIA, Or.. Aug. 31. (AP) Harry G.

Should be Done. r X these 'days, when almost everybody owns '; or drives .an automobile, traffic con ditions, -problems and nuisan ces are uppermost In the minds of a large percentage of the peo ple. Back-seat drivers rave and yowl, speed-demons cut corners 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 ard by distracting the attention of masculine motorists. So, just ' to' see what the people think about It all, the New Oregon Statesman set out Friday to get some expressions from residents of this community. Here they ares J. E. MAXON, Portland Nash dealer. In Salem Friday, said: "Salem has wonderful wide streets and seems to have a large number of automobiles' The traffic was heavy at State and Comerclal streets when I passed that intersection and I thought at the time, there ought to be a control of some sort, -either a policeman on fix ed post or a semaphore signal. I note many women driving au tos in our capital city: and they seem to know their business. I cannot presume to make rec ommendations for I am not here often enough." - WALDO O. MILLS, local realtor said: "The city should take out the 'pumpkins' at the center of the street intersections and use the same system as that now employed at State and Com mercial. Traffic is speeded up there, and there is seldom a jam there now. Officers for direct Jng traffic should be placed on the busiest corners during the rush hours." HARRY SCOTT, motorcycle dealer, said: "I da pot know Just what Is to be. done about the double-parking nuisance. It seems to be a necessary evil, and I don't know how to get around it. Motorcyclists can us ally find room to park with out double parking; One thing" sure, - snorter parking limits won't help matters any." RAYMOND "CHIEF" READY who stays at Y. M. C. A., said: "There should.be a cop to sig nal motorists at .at least one downtown crossing and that is at State and Commercial." OSCAR B. GINGRICH, of the Gingrich Motor company, said "Traffic as it Is in Salem now reminds one of a hick town. This is no fault of the police but because there is an inade quate force of patrolmen. There should be at least five traffic officers and possibly six, with one at each of these Important street Intersections: Commer cial at State and at Court, Lib erty at State and at Court and High at State street Either that or we should have signal lights at these places. I believe it would be economy to put in the signal lights." JACK CUTLER, night desk sergeant at tne police ' station, said: ,"Recent stories' in The Statesman showing the need of traffic control at the busier cor ners, have tended to call atten tion of the public to something that is highly important. The best solution is a system of ste- nai ngbts: while expensive. thev Would tirnT mnra nnniti. S iongnrSner pol,cement in R. A. CLARK, taxicab man with headquarters at the Bligh hotel, said: "Salem's traffic regulations at present are just about right. Through streets in crease safety, but we don't need any more than we have now. The single safety button in the center of an intersection is bet- ter than four on the curb lines,-. I oecause the rourpennlt cutting I corners ana two drivers may try it at the same time. The police use good judgment in en forcing the law, too. I think it is a good thing to he a nttle lenient on double parking, as the streets are so wide that it can be done safely." B. W. MACT. local attorney, said "The main thing wrong with Salem traffic regulations Is the fact that 'buttons' are 'located In the middle of street intersec tions instead of being distribu ted' four ways. I wish they'd put them at all the downtown cor ners the way they are at the cor ner of State and Commercial streets If they ever do that It will be the most sensible .thing they've done since the original traffic laws were enacted.

REPORTER OF PACT TO OUIT Inside Story Given Of Nego tiations Culminating In Paris Treaty Developments Caused When Smith F. Reavis Goes After News Stpi PARIS. Aug, 31. (AP) Now that the Kellogg-Briand treaty for the outlawry of war has been sign ed by the plenipotentiaries of the great nations of the world, there 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 ortorial enterprise of "getting a news story.' Early in 192 Reavis, on be half of the Associated Press, sought from foreign minister Ar istide Briand of France, a mes sage to the American people on the tenth anniversary of Ameri ca's entry into the war, "April 6, 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. Message Prepared Tne request was renewed on several occasions and M. Briand promised to prepare a message to the American people to be trans mitted through the Associated 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 eign office called at the Associated Press bureau in Paris with a doc ument that, accepted as it was by French and, American statesmen for something more than a dip lomatic "trial balloon." led to the world embracing treaty signed in Paris last' Monday whereby Che great nations agreed to renounce war as an instrument of national policy. In that message, M. Briand pro posed that "the two great democ racies" outlaw war forever. Willingness Expressed "If there were need of it be tween the two great democracies ofthe world," M. Briand said, "in der to give testimony of their esire for peace and to furnish a solemn example to other peoples. France would be willing to enter into an engagement with America mutually outlawing war, to use yeur wayfof expressing it.. "The renunciation of war as an instrument of national policy is a conception already familiar to the signatories of the League cov enant and Locarno treaties. Any 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 large and fortify the foundation 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 the condition immediately to be obtained is not disarmament but the practice of peace." 2 On Motorcycle Injured In Crash, Brought to Salem Arthur Pfaf finger, 21, and Lewis Faulkner, 23, both of Wood burn, were seriously injured about 11:30 o'clock Friday night when the motorcvele on which thev were riding collided with a wagon drawn by a team of horses on the Pacific highway near the Wood burn arch.

He was riding behind his companion and did not receive. the full Impact of the collision. The young men were brought to a Salem hospital by Dr. Gerald B.

Despite the democratic circum stances of their capture and the vivid personality of Rossi, the late editions of the Roman papers used only a brief agency dispatch con taining the bare facts of the af- est. This action, coupled with the return of Mussolini to Rome from the northern army manoeu vefs. is taken as evidence that word has gone out that the import ance of the arrest shouldnot be overemphasized for the present.
