No Communication "Eait".
Ai to the present stains of this
feature Mrs. Lilly M. Uurger. mother
of the accused said ihe had not
"communicated with the rust and had
no intention of so doing." When the
referred to the "east" it was believed
ihe had Senator New in mind. She
made it plain no appeali had been
made directly or through friendi.
Mr llurger visited her son at the
I ail during the afternoon. The meet-
ng wai affectionate. She kissed him

and face. Hn delight was irrepresai-
ble. He was a boy again and a smile
played about his lips.

defense admitted additional alienists
would be employed but declined to
give any names.
The defense today moved to uncov-
er the life history nf the ilain girl.

fusal to marry New. New'i statement
that the revolver belonged to J. L.

FIRM HAND NEEDED TO STOP
CHAOS IN BORDER NA TION
La Guardia Attacks Dilatory Congress for Failing to
Bring Acute Condition to an End
WASHINGTON July 11 A strong
plea for the adoption of a firm policy
with tegard to Mexico wat voiced in
Ihe house today by Representative La
liuardiiv republican of New York.
Urging favorable action on his reso-
lution calling on the utate war and
navy department! to cTa to (he house
all their correspondence dealing with
the Mexican lituation since July 1
lu15 Mr. I-a Guardia declared it is
time for the state department to
abandon its policy of "blow hot blow
"Carrarua should be told in plain
terms that he cannot br tolerated a
moment longer" the New York rep-
trouble Must End.
"Without any intention of inter-
vening the United States should go
into Mexico with beans in one hand
and if necessary hand grenades in
the other and put an end to the pro-
mt situation. Ihe United States
should assist Mexico to end the
limine and plague now existing
Charging that the attitude of the
state department toward Mexico ha
been "one series of inconsistencies"
Mr. La Guardia declared "there is
sufficient reason to cause alarm and
to compel the adoption of a fixed defi-
nite policy toward Mexico." He con-
tinued: Something la Wrong.
"Everybody leenn to know that
something it wrong in Mexico every-
body knowi that United Statei armed
forcei entered Mexican territory only
a ihort time ago. i'erihing'i expedi-
tion into Mexico has not yet been for
gotten. Still there sermi to be no
exact knowing ai to svhaf it it all
"We went after Villa were chasing
Villa but just ai we were about to get
him our troopi were ordered away.
We went to Tampico to have the flag
saluted. Ilefore th; flag wat saluted
the fleet wat ordered away. We en-
tered Mexico a ihort time ago and a
few hour later our troopi returned
and the incident remained to a cer-
tain extent unexplained."
Time to Face Facta.
Mr. La Guardia referred to the re-
cent ipeeeh of Representative Gould
of New York in which he gave the
number of Americans killed in Mex-
ico ad ling:
"Still no action; till no redress;
still no fixed policy; Mill indecision.
Is it not time that we grt into the
"It is my belief that if all the
fatti were before us it would be
shown that the government of (ar-
rania is no government at all; that
disorder chant revolution and tin-
ease are prevalent throughout that
Medieval Barbarity Common.
Mr. la Guardia exhibited a news-
paper containing a picture of the head
of General Klanqi.ct exhibited by the
(arrania authorities in Vera Urur.
The general's dead body wa decap-
itated be laid and his head "for a
period of three days was exhibited
with all barbaric characteristics and at
niRht it was illnim.uted."
"The ( arranra papen and his fol-
lowing gloated and enjoyed this grue-
somr exhibition" he Ne York mem-
ber dei tared.
"Th is is the character of the gov
ernment the Un d States is now
seeking to support and aid. Why?
If ('arrania has no respect for hii
own blood how can wr expect him
to protect American lives?"
The following remedies for the
Mexican trouble were recommended:
A itrirter border patrol iliould be
maintained ami iwift punishment
metel out if further shooting across
the lorder should occur; the embargo
on arms should le lifted; the chieft
nf Mexico Carrana and Villa in-
cluded iliould he summoned to a con-
ference to establish i (inn govern-
ment. QEORGE MAY STAKD

It is no exaggeration to say that these values are ex-
traordinary. Here at the very height of the wash skirt sea-
son are reductions very deep affording savings large and
real. Of course these reductions are temporary that is to
say they are for Saturday morning only. The ones at $4.95
are worthy of the heaviest emphasis. They are splendid not
only in point of money's worth but in point of style. The
materials are fine cotton gabardine pique and washable
cotton satins. It is evident at a glance that the tailoring
was done bv neonle of skill. Stvle in every line and the
thing called "hang" so essential if the skirt is to be the gar-
ment of grace and fashion. Girdles and large pockets fre-
quently tucks around the bottom.

Of piques and gabardines a limited number formerly
selling at prices considerably higher than $1.45.

A Half Day Selling of
Most Delightful Summer Dresses at $9.95
We shall not fall into the error of the usual merchant in telling you of these dresses.
You are aware of his errori no doubt and you know it is something like that of the
man who put his hand over the thermometer in his room causing the mercury
to rise and thereby wheedling himself into believing that his room was warm. An
advertiser may aay his merchandise is worth as much as he pleases; he may go so far
as to believe what he says yet in so doing he may be doing no more than amusing
or hypnotizing himself.
The thing that counts is what you
think or believe!
We know as well as we know anything that you are
going to think well of these dresses. They are com-
paratively new they are fashionable they are underprice
and further you will think well of them for the addi-
tional reason that no fancied or impossible valuations
have been placed on them.
The materials are voiles and ginghams in plaids plain colors and stripes.
There is a precious few of crepe de chine. They have straight-gathered skirt
and once in a while there is a patch pocket Here's the rub. Small sizes only
that is up to 38. Are you a petite woman ?
