Mt. Clemens, Mich., July 17. Henry

the automobile manufacturer claimed
today. Recalled to the stand ia his
Million dollur libel suit against the Chi

"Did yon ever say vou were going to

tho war and never raise it again tLat
you were desiguing s new flag?" At

Ford.
"I don't remember making "such I

of Irving Haon. that he had worked
on a fliid design about the time of
Ford's interview with John Reed, a
magazine writer.
"I never saw b.it one design of the

said.
The Bred interview came in for much
discission.
It contained the following quoted ex

attended an important meeting of that
body at the Multnumnn Hotel in Port
land yesterday. At this meeting tenta
tive plans were considered for compre
hensive exhibits of dairy products,
modern equipments and educational
demonstrations at the state fair this
fall. It is probable that the committee
in charge will arrange for a permanent
exhibit to be installed at the fair ev
ery year as a means of impressing both
the dairy . interests and the general
public with the possibilities of the in
dustry ia this state. Along with this
exhibit" the committee will also consid

BE ATTACKED AGAIN
Republicans Determined To
Pass New Agricultural Bill
With Vetoed Rider.
Washington, July 17 (United Press)
A fight between President WilRon
and congress over the question of re
pealing the daylight saving act teemed
assured today by the dnteriiiiuutiuu of
republicans, despite the fuiluro of the
house to override tho president's veto
of the repealer ,to make another effort
to kill the law.
They have decided again to push
through congress the agricultural ap
propriation bill, with the rider repeal
ing the daylight saving plan. The only
difference iu the rider the house, agri
culture committee was expected to re
port out today and tho one the presi
dent vetoed, is that the former exempts
from repeal the part of the daylight
suving act establishing standard time
zones under the federal trade commis
sion, The house rules committee was to be
asked for a rule to mako the new bill
in order as stiyn as the president 'k veto
of the sundry civil bill was disposed of.
The action ot house republicans was the
result of a conference with senate lead
ers who criticized the lower body foi
sustaining the president s veto.
Daylight saving oppuueutt have a
large majoiity iu both houses, but no
votes have yet indicated the iiccessurv
two thirds to override the president's
veto. There is little doubt that the
president will veto the new measure,
i ltlioiigh it will delay nil nppropriutions
for the department of agriculture.
Democrats, realizing the republicans
i.re making a party issue of the presi
dent's veto, were conferring today and
many lenders were urging that since the
representatives from the country were
already a i record as voting against
Jayliiht saving, tho party must now
stand by the president. It is not con
sidered probable that the republican
cun keep their ranks solid, as 74 repub
lieaus voted for the daylight piun, with
the president.

Make The ilzb ra
"Asiatic Kaiser"
Washington, July 17. The peace
treaty makes Japan so strong that the
mikado will in time beoome aa ''Asiat
ic kaiser," challenging the whole
, world, Senator Sherman declared today
in attackiug the treaty in the senate.
He denounced the action of the peace
conference in .giving Shantung to Jap.
an, as "the superlative treachery of
modern times."
Japan, he warned will gradually ab
sorb China aud menace the world.
In that day, he predicted, the United
States may be forced to appeal for help
to the Chinese people in the dismem
berment of whose empire he charged
this government has been made a part.
ncr.
"The United States has either been
over-reached by more capable diplo
mats or the indifference of thote re
creant to their duty," said Sherman.
''China was the first to respond from
the neutral nations to the call of our
president against Uermany.
"China trusting the United States,
the allies and associated nations at the
peace table, finds herself facing an
other step in the dismemberment of
her country. She finds too that the
United States joins with those who
plunder her territory and rb her of
her people. This is done when ire are
preaching to the world confidence iu
each other and universal peace based
upon justice to all, the strong and weak
alike.
'Tho perfidy of China's mistreat
ment so taints and poisons the pro
fessed altruism with which the league
of nations was heralded to the world as
to crown it the superlutive treachery
in the history of modern times.
''It is as plaiu as the noon day sun
that the Japanese government is auto
cratic and that it will add Chinese
province upon province, concession up
on concession, until an Asiatic- kaiser'uation here and at other Atlantic coaat
armed with all the modern implements
of scientific destruction in war will
dominato the affairs of Asia and the
Pacific ocean. Such a concentrated pow
er is never at rest. In time it is as cer
tain to raise up a potential world con
queror as that Macdonia produced in
Alexander or the French revolution in
Napoleon."

I After nersonallv witnessing t'uo whole
course of the revolution in Budapest, I
am able to state this with authority.
The food situation throughout Hun
gary is critical. Budapest is virtually
sturviug. Tho country is torn by in
ternal disiessions. Belu Kim is cow
fronted with the problem of raising aa
army from a people whose morale is at
its lowest ebb, und equipping it with,
arms and munitions that are practically
non-existent.
Should the expected allied offensive
fail to materialize, there is one other
factor that could bring about the bol
shevik! downfall, a concerted uttack by
the diversified auti soviet government.
Tho Red army ii prepurcd to fight th
Rumanians nnd Czechsand probably
could wage a successful wart'ai against
them but it has no stomach fur bat
tling its brothers in ttie'Hrhlte araiy. ,
At present the White forces are sett
tered and without competent leaders or
a definite objective. Lntir divisions
of the Red forces, however, hav served,
formal notice thut they will refuso t
fight the White army. A number e
workmen's battalions were disarmed
and returned to the factories becaus
of this defiance. ;
An allied offensive undoubtedly
would result in an immediate rrii in
the soviet government. Nevertheless, I
believe the order which has so far been
maintained by the Reds in Budapest
would continue. But if the White arwy
were to attack it is certain the streets
won'il run red with blood, since there
