London. May !. The capital ol
the Hritish empire today accorded
Prince Hirohito, heir to the Japanese

A bright spring day provided ideal
weather for the function.
The Japanese prince, accompanied
by the Prince of Wales, arrived at
the Victoria station on a special train
from Portsmouth. He was greeted by
King George, the Duke of Connaught
and the Duke of York. The brilliant
suite of British officialdom! in at
tendance stood' at salute while the
bands played the Japanese anlhern.
Then, at the side of the king, in a
state carriage, the crown pripoe was
driven off, through the streets cor
doned by troops and lined with cheer
ing multitudes, to Buckingham pal
ace. Within theh palace thhe visiting
prince was received by the. queen.
Princess Mary and other members of
theh royal family, and court officials.

A dinner to the crown prince given
by King George in Buckingham pal

HIGH WATER AT BEATRICE
Beatrice. Neb., May 10. As a re
sult of heavy rains in this section,
the Blue river af this point was bank
full shortly after midnight last night.
Dewitt reported a rainfall of two
and a half inches. Two inches fell
at Pickerell. In this vicinity the
precipitation was .67 of an inch, or
a total of 1.7G since Friday.
Two automobiles, both driven by
traveling men, were caught in the
deluge in the Cornhusker highway,
near the turn going into Pickerell
and both cars were washed off the
bridge. The occupants were unhurt,
chough their cars were marooned in
the gulley at the roadside.
GREAT CHARACTER ACTOR
Joseph J. Howling, seen as "Place
Hough." the gambler, in Benjamin
B. Hampton's great production, "The
IT. P. Trail," a Ilodkinson release,
which is the featured- attraction at
the Parmele Friday and Saturday,
is conceded to be one of the greatest
character actors appearing today on
the silversheet: Among the produc
tions in which he has been seen to
great advantage by Plattsmouth
movie fans are "The Miracle Man"
and "The Spenders." In the former,
Mr. Dowling had the prominent role
of the healer and it will be recalled
how well he handled the assignment.
Any performance which Mr. Dowling
gives is invariably marked by such
superb artistry - such sympathetic,
intelligent insight into the role he is
called upon to portray that it is
small wonder he should be one of
the most eagerly sought for actors
on the screen today.

M'ADOO IS FOR DISARMAMENT.
Washington. May 10. W. G. Mc-
Adoo. former secretary of the treas
ury, tonight espoused disarmament
as a curative for the economic and
social troubles of the world, in an
address before the national league of
Masonic clubs. "Disarmament or
bust!" he declared. "That is what
the people have got to face."
Painting a picture of world-wide
suffering from excessive taxation, Mr.
McAdoo declared that taxes in all
lands would soon become unbear
able unless some intelligent plan
were evolved for disarmament. "The
excessive taxn'ion is subjective," he
said, "because the war has- been
fought and the debts have got to be
paid. There if no telling when they
will be liquidated.
"I wouldn't have America disarm
unless we have an understanding
with other powers unless we have
and agreement and I want to em
phasize the word agreement. If we
agree ,on disarmament and preserve
the relative strength of all nations
concerned theve will be no danger."

IN BERGDOLL CASE
Held Primarily Responsible by Ken
tucky Congressman for Escape
Effected by Draft Evader.
Washington. May 10. The charge
that Col. John E. Hunt, former com
mandant at the disciplinary bar
racks at Governors Island, was
"whitewashed" by a court-martial
resulting from his alleged failure to
take proper precautions to prevent
the escape of Grover Bergdoll. was
;nade today before the house inves
tigating committee, failed to tell
what precautions he had taken to
safeguard Rergdoll while on a gold
"hunting expedition to Maryland.
Colonel Hunt had been on the stand
nearly five hours when he was tak
en in hand by Representative .lohn
scn. democrat. Kentucky, for a gril
ling cross examination.
Some of the questions worn ex
tremely blunt and of a personal na
ture. Then, after asking for a yes
or no answer as to whether he had
been given a fair trial whether he
had been aggressively prosecuted,
Mr. Johnson quoted him from the
good standing .f the accused.
"Is that a vigorous prosecuting
speech?" Mr. Johnson asked and
Hunt replied it was a plea for his
cenviction as he saw it.
John T. Sherburne, of IJoston.
counsel for the committee, in'erpos.ed
that it vas only fai to read from
the judge advocate's address.
course which the committee ap
proved. Plain Charge of Whitewash.
"It is my purpose to show," Mr.
Johnson declared, "that the court -martial
record contains more than a
suspicion that this witness was while-
washed and that counsel participated
only in a half hearted prosecution."
. Extracts from the judg advo
cate's address uuoted by Mr. Johnson
set forth that the prosecution did
not think or intimate Colonel Hunt
wanted Hergdoll to escape, or was
in a conspiracy and that it was rea
lized Hunt was the "sorriest of all."
that the prisoner got away.
Sympathy was expressed by the
pn secutor for the colonel, now re
tired, and it was mentioned that he
had made "a magnificent record as
an officer," hut that this was not the
question at issue, and that there had
been a technical violation of military
regulations in a way to bring dis
credit upon the army.
The extracts read at the insistence
of Mr. Sherburne related to the sug
gestion of General Harris, adjutant
general, that a commissioned ollieer
placed in charge of the expedi
tion, a suggestion not carried out.
Tlie prosecutor asked for a verdict
of guilty on tlie specification.
Colonel Hunt, recently recovered
from a long illness, took no part in
the discussion. During his examin
ation he described plans tor Lerg
doll to leave under military guard in
search of the buried gold and de
clared no officer available and that
he had had the utmost confidence
in Sergeant O'llare, who was di
rectly responsible for the safe re
turn of the prisoner.
Asked by Chairman Peters if the
escape was due to his own lault or
to tlie incompetency of the gaurd.
Hunt denied he was responsible
and added that he did not want to
characterize the conduct of the ser
geant as dereliction if duty.
Mrs. Bergdoll to Be Summoned
Mrs. Emma C. IJergdoll. mother
of Grover Cleveland IJergdoll. Phil
adelphia draft .evader will be sum
moned to appear before the house
committee investigating Iiergdoll's
escape to explain wtiat necanie or tne
$105,000 in gold obtained frcm the
treasury which her son was released
to recover. As she is awaiting sen
tence at Philadelphia within the next
few days on conviction of conspiracy
to aid her son in evading the draft,
the date of Mrs. Hergdoll's appear
ance has not been definitely set.
"Our next step will concern dis
position of the gold we now know
was taken from the treasury." John
S. Sherburne, couneel fi.r the com
mittee, said today.
