Peljtion to Eliminate Two From
Treaty of Versailles
A strong movement has been launched lu England to supplement, similar
efforts made in Franco this summer to
eliminate articles  231 anil 227  rroin
- the Treaty of Versailles. These are
' the articles in yhich Germany acknowledges guilt for bringing on the
war and which fix upon Germany the
accusation of.having commilLed offences against international morality, the sanctify of treaties aiul the
customs of jyar.
A petition has been signed by moro
than 100 persons of eminence, inclutl-
-ing university professors, high dignitaries of-the church and writers, who
declare they have been deeply moved
by the similar petition signed last duly
by 100 French meu and women of distinction.
The. petition days:'
"We regard these two articles which
"were forcibly imposed upon a defeated naLion under llie most terrible
threats, us having expressed a state
of mind in (lie allied and associated
. powers which has now' largely passed
away. We believe they are, manifestly 'unjust and constitute a grave
obstacle to International'understand-
.   InR. X""        I  \- ' '      '   ���'
"Consequently,' wye urge that the governments concerned either  to amend
- iheso arficles with-no further delay,

too long and cambrous, a proceeding,
to announce, severally their intention
to disregard them."

To Solve Arctic-Riddle
Flight of Birds Over_Arctic Regions to
De Studied by Avia'.ors
Solution of an Arctic riddle" lhat has
fascinated explorers since first*' they
began penetrating the polar regions,
will be sought by Captain,G. II. Wilkins and his 'companion's 'on their proposed non-stop ilight next'spring over
the lop df the world.
'The riddle, biiefly, has been:
'���Where do the.birds go when -they
keep on going north ?"-
Almost every Arctic expedition has
observed the phenomenon-and it has
led to the belief that-land must exist
somewhere beyond the farthest- point
reached by man.' The land i3 thought'
Lo be somewhere near tho ice pole. Mr.
Stefansson is one of those planning
the' Ilight.
It is over thai pole, ra'lher than over
tlie geographical North Pole, that Captain Wilkins will fly next year. If
land is discovered, It will be claimed
in the name of tho United'States.
- The ice pole is the centre- of the i
dozen Arctic Sea. It would correspond Ho the geographical pole, If the
Ice pack on top. of' thc world were on
HiTaiglitT^butWlie paclT^leaSs-fo~llie
west.
The Detroit Aviation Society, of
which Henry Ford's chief engineer if?
president, is backing the expedition.
The costs -of the flight will bo between $100,000 and ? 150,000.'   '

of 8,000 inhabitants?
Here Is Fred Anderson's code for

Your .face is tho mirror of your soul'
Keep U trimmed with sunshine and

Mrs. Ilosita Forbes, English woman
explorer, whose last expedition was
into-Abyssinia where she visited the
buried Troglodyte city of Lalibehla,

had become grey haired.
The natives, she said, carved the
underground homes into the solid
rock, reserving the upper levels'" for
their temples and the lower ones for.
homes. The religion of. the people Is
Christian, although they-' have retained .their ancient'' rituals. There
are eleven underground churches.
There are .11,000 nail ves living in this

Slips' Lead To Detection

Very Many Criminals Make Mistakes
That Betray Them
After eluding the police for years,
even, the most astute criminal will
bring about his own arrest by. making
just one little slip. Less gifted
crooks often give   themselves   away.
An instance has recently come to
hand, says a London -writer. The
police had been baffled by a murder
until they chanced to examine the hat
of the,victim. Inside tho band, to
make the hat fit better, was a piece
of paper, This proved to be a coun.
summons made out to another man.
He was questioned and his guill established. ;-fn his hurry to get away
from the scene of the crime he had
taken his victim's hat for his own!
One crook betrayed himself by the
way he carried off his plunder'from a
West End mansion, Among the spoil
were two silver inkstands. The.y
Iefl a trail of ink half a mile long,
which led tho police to their man.
Crime and Its detection is a highly
scientific, business, and in it, as in
everything else, there's many a slip.
