Danced All Night.
His late awakening was due to the
fact that he spent last night as he
chose—dancing. He danced with at
least 17 American girls. As on an
other occasion since he came here,
dawn was approaching when he de
cided to call it a day and turn in.
More than 1,000 persons braved a
chilling rain to watch the prince play
polo at Grace Field Friday afternoon.
The match was close the score being
8 to 7 in favor of Wales’ team.
After the game the British heir
returned to the Burden home at
Syosset, encountering on the way a
heavy downpour of rain that before
came a regular cloudburst. His car
was forced to slow down to 18 miles
an hour because fast driving was im
possible on the slippery roads.
The royal visitor changed horses
after each chukker. Several times he
was loudly applaudod when he pre
vented the opposition from scoring.
He was shown no favors in the game
and more than once was roughly
handled in the scrimmages.
When the British and American
polo teams meet Saturday Eric Ped
ley, whom experts without prejudice
consider the greatest polo player this
country ever saw, will be sitting on

Chicago, Sept. ' —Judge John It~
Caverly admitted Friday that he had
not reached a decision In the case of
Nathan Leopold and Richard Loeb,
slayers of Robert Franks. He must
decide the fate of the slayers by
September 10.
"I wish this case had gone to a
Jury,” he said. "It Is too much for
one man to decide. When I have
read the sentence I shall make a plea
that a law be enacted requiring throe
judges to sit In all capital cases
where a plea of guilty Is entered.”
Judge Caverly may be unable to
reach a decision. In that case he
would have It within his power to
order the plea of guilty withdrawn
and submit the case to a Jury.
