Action Defended.
It was not stated at t.'ie War de

tion would be taken against Zimmer,
who is a sergeant m the army and
therefore amenable to im'lftary jus
tice because of his participation in attempt to kidnap Bergdoll.

acterized their act in attempting to
forcibly compel Bergdoll to return

but right-minded."

(By the Associate Press. 1Cari
Xcuf and Franz Zivnmer were re
leased from imprisonment here to
t'ay. The sentences ;"of Neuf and
Zimmer. both aftaclied to the
American army of occupation and
under confinement here for their at
tempt to arrest Grover C' Bergdoll,
the American draft evader, - have
been remitted by the Baden govern
ment. The German authorities stated that
the release was . affected at the re
quest of the German federal govern
ment and that it was dependent upon
the good behavior of the two Ameri
cans. As both the Americans are
expected to reach Coblenz tomorrow
or Saturday, neither the Baden nor
the federal governments will have
any authority over them, the sus
pensions of the sentences are regard
ed virtually as pardons.
Much Interest Aroused.
The release of Neuf and Zimmer
has aroused great interest in Ger
man circles and already it is said a
member of the nationalist party will
make, if the basis of interpellations
when the Reichstag- convenes after
the Easter recess.
The action of the Baden govern
ment in releasing the men was due
to representations made by Brig.
Gen. H. T. Allen, commander of
the Americon occupational forces,
made to the German government
through a member of the American
general staff, who went to Berlin
last week' and conferred with the
German government authorities.

v No Action Taken.
The conference closed without
plans for other meetings of the same
character and nothing in the way of
joint action by the interstate com
merce commission and the railroad
labor board to meet the existing sit
nation is ontcmnlated.
President Harding, it was learned,
regarded the conference as the most
Uireci mernou oi lmoruinis lummu
on one of the most important do
mestic questions before the country
today. It was also stated that it is
farthest from the president's inten
tions to take any step that might ap
pear to be going over the hcads of
the interstate commerce commission
or the railroad labor board.
The information obtained by the
president may be utilized by him in
his message to congress at the be
ginning of the extra session, which
he has called for April 11. It has
not been definitely settled, however,
that the railroad problem will be
one of the matters to which the
president will direct the attention of
congress. If it should be determin
ed that additional legislation is nec
essary to provide the necessary re
lief. the railroad situation av)!1 be
dealt with directly and recommen
dations will be submitted to con
gress. Congressional leader', how
ever, appear to entertain decided im
pressions that additional legislation
is not necessarv, chiefly because it
would not constitute the cure of the
evils involved.
Prompt Decisions Urged.

Move for Injunction
Against "Unfair" Rent
Signs Denied by Judge
Chicago, 111., March 31. "Unfair";
signs may stay in the windows of
Chicago tenants for at least another
week, in consequence of a finding
handed down in superior court today,
judge Denis E. Sullivan denied a
landlord's petition for a temporary
injunction against the signs, holding
that such a writ would have the ef
fect of a mandatory order and would
be inequitable in the present case.
- The case was set April 7 for hear
ing on its merits. The litigation
may bring out a permanent injunc
tion at that time.
The petitioning landlord, C. Frank
Taylor, contended that the signs are
.loine lum inestimable harm, tie set
volvcd -poured prelates of equal
rank, diplomats and statesmen from
Washington, high state and federal
officials and members of his own
flock. Outside in the rain were
massed hundreds who, unable to en
ter the church, stood reverently for
three hours while the pontifical re
quiem mass was being sung.
During the long pictureful service
Archbishop John J. Glctmon ot M. ,
Louis eulogized the late cardinal as
the sreat -leader and soldier, the
great legislator, the far-visioncd edu
cator, the great patriot, the kindly,
gentle old man."
The service ended shortly after 1
o'clock, after the cardinal had been
absolved of all sin, and the long re
cessional streamed out.
With the fall of evening, tender
hands lifted the frail body of the
churchman from the great' purple ca
tafalque on which it had rested in
state for four days and placed it in
a simple coffin of cardinal purple.
Then the casket was borne to the
white marble crypt under the sanc
tury, in which six other archbishops
are scaled. A simple ceremony, wit
nessed only bv the closest and
then the door of the vault closed.
Crowd Comes Early.
In this manner James Cardinal
Gibbons was laid to rest beneath the
cathedral in which he had been bap
tized, in which he had been conse
crated to the service of God, in
which he had been named the young
est bishop of his time and in which
he had been elevated to archbishop
and 'cardinal.
The cathedral was half filled when
the head of the processional entered
shortly beforc10 o'clock. The laity
were seated from the rear of the
church forward to the foot of the
candle-lighted bier. The forward
part of the cathedral was reserved
for the clergy.
The organ pealed. Into the church
filed a double column of seminary
choristers. Behind them came
priests. There were the white-sur-
pliced, secular clergy and then mem
bers of various religious orders.
Rain caused a slight change in
the plans for the procession. Instead

His father, in Richmond, Mo., had
