FORD IS BEHIND THE
I Expects to Aid Harding in Removing
War Causes Lays Blame on
the Munition Makers.
Washington. July "a. Henry Ford
is solidly behind President Harding's
disarmament program. The automo
bile manufacturer plans to assist the
president in removing the causes of
war with every resource at his com
mand. This developed as the result of a
frank informal talk between lhe two
during the week-end camping expe
dition in the Maryland hills.
Ford outlined his disarmament
views in an exclusive interview dur
ing a quiet hour at the camp.
Munition makers and international
bankers. Ford believes, arc trying to
keep the war game alive. His plan
is to turn the spotlight of publicity
upon them and bring the force of
public opinion to bear down on any
one who attempts to obstruct the dis
"The munitions makers were re
sponsible for Germany's arming to
the teeth." Ford taid. "Now they I
are trying to do the same thing with
Japan. With Germany gone they are
trying to find another reason for
keeping up the war business and at j
present they are trying to use Japan
as an excuse."
Ford was sitting on the edge of an
old broken down bed in a deserled
log cabin on the camping enclosure.
He had thrown off his coat revealing
stunt mi ir nf olil 1"u sli imied sii-nend-
rrs. His lean ngure oceanic tense
as he talked.
"If we get anywhere with Ibis dis
armament business every man has
got in put his soul into it." Ford de-
dared. "1 think the president is'
taking exactly the right course. I m
for him absolutely in this."
Ford discussed the alleged "hank
ing ring." but declined to mention
n inies tor puhlicat ion.
"But there is a ring of hankers
a world ring that is causing all the
trouble." he said "They work in !
Washington, in London and all
around the world. It was that kind
of a ring around the kaiser that got ,
Germany into trouble. They put up'
tlie money, munition makers make',
the guns, powder, and the people'
get killed and maimed."
Ford took opportunity to indicate
Iha.t he felt his views regarding the'
Jewish race had been misstated. I
"1 have hundreds of Jews work
ing in my plant at Detroit." he said.
"Fin imt talking about that kind of
people. It's those who are in the
international banking ring that I'm
SMALL SEEMS TO
HAVE WON CASE
Sheriff Declares He Will Not Use
Force to Bring About Arrest
of Illinois Governor.
Springfield. 111.. July !'.. Gover
nor Lenn Small today apparently
had won his fight io force postpone
ment of his arrest ami trial on
(barge- of juggling 1 iMHin.onO in
state money until after his term of
op ice expires.
Sheriff Henry Mester cf S: t: ga i.mn
county, on whose shoulders wiP fall
the duty of serving Ihe warrants de
clared he would imt u-c force in ( f
fnrts to arrest the indicted governor.
Mesfer's statement brought relief
to the state capitol. where pictures
of armed clashes between state mil
itia called to protect the governor
and iherifl's deputies, vividly drawn
in reports and rumors, has kept the
populace on edge.
The sheriff asserted he would make
an honest effort to serve the war
rants, if so instructed by the court.
Msy Worry Governor
"I may cause ihe governor some
worry." the sheriff said. "I will try
to use diplomacy and tact, but I will
not use force."
As if will be necessary for force
to be used to bring Small into court
so lone as he continues his present
attitude, it was apparent the situa
tion would rest at that rather in
definite state until the governor has
completed his term of office or i..
willing to submit to arrect.
Kvcn if the sheriff or his deputies
should reach the governor personal
ly and read the warrant to him. the
executive would probably ignore it
and not go to court unless he was
forcibly taken. Thi- the sheriff c-tated
he would not do.
Sheriff Me;-tcr. a huge man who
could probably pick the governor up
with one hand and carry him into
court, if be wished, said lo- was mrr
there would be no trouble.
Judce F.. S. Smith is expected to
hand down his decision tomorrow
holding Small subject to arrest and
ordering the sheriff to take him into
custody. The sheriff will probably no
tify the governor that ho holds a
warrant for his arrest, and there the
matter will drop, if the governor
doesn't change his mind aud decide
to stand trial.
