The president promptly indited a message of thanks and appreciation to Detroit, while the sending of the telegram was admitted at the White House it was stated that it could be made public by Mr. Ford. ActualIy the White House has been aware of the decision of the automo- bile mannfacturer for a week it was probably disclosed to the president by Mr. Ford when he visited him. but no public notice could be taken of it un- til the public annnuncement came from Detroit. At that time Burr Ca- dy, chairman of the Republican state commtee, pointed out that the call ing off of the third party convention that was to have met in Detroit to nominate Ford, meant that the latter would withdraw in favor of Mr. Cool- idge. There are no mixed emotions as to the parking of the auto magneto's boom for four years. Bbth the Demo- crats and the Republicans hail it as relief, not as they explaim that he menaced their party in particular, bn! be complicated an already involved situation to a der,:e that seriously interferd with calculations. Now, the Democrats say. they will have the call on the Progressives in all the states where Ford was likely to get the electoral vote on a third ticket. The McAdoo hoosters are par- ticularly relieved for they feared that Ford would gather a bunch of con- vention delegates to the nadJoual con- vention, that can not f be cownted for their candidate. Republicans took the view that while It was gratifying to the Cool- idge supporters, the effect to the withdrawl was more clarifying to th general situation than helpful to any- body in particular. Their basis for this thought that the Independent field is now clear for La Follette. whereas with Ford in the race. the domination of the Wtsoonsin senator xvbs certain only in his own state, either as a third part candidate or as a contender for delegates in the Republican convention. The Coolidge people tried tO figure that Ford's adherence to the presi- dent would annihilate Hiram John- son's chances, b. t the letter's friends say that while Ford as a candidate presented a formidable figure he could not deliver his strength to Coolidge or anybody else. "It was not unexpected," was John- son's own statement. "It-has been known in Washington for some time t that Ford would support Mr. Cool. idge." The same belief in the non-nego- tiable quality of Ford's followers was voiced bY various Democrats. m------- ANTI-SEMITIG RIOTS.

Adjusted service pay. This plan is limited to veterans whose adlusted service credit is not more than $50. A veteran who has served 100 days on this side of the Atlantic, being pare at the rate of $1 a day, wou' have a credit of $100, but there would be subtracted from this the $60 pald him when he vts discharged, so that the cash outlay would be $40.

Adjusted service  certificates. This permits the veterans to receive paid-up insurance policy payable at the end of $5 years. To incltle veterans o take this plan, a 25 per cent increase in amount of his ad- justed service credit is glve'n; that is he is paid on  the same basis as if be had served one-fourth more than he has aetudgly been in service. An tercst payment of 4 per cent, com- pounded annually for 20 years, is so included, and if the veteran dies be- fore the end of 20 years his family or estate gets the full value of the certificate. 3. Vocation training is given at the expense of tke government to an amount equal to his adjusted rvice credit plus 40 per cent at the rat o "$175 per day. 4. Farm or home aid is given re. the purpose of enabling the veteran to make improvements on city c suburban home or farm or to pur- chase the same.

John Bran- dols. Brandeis is a big game hunter and owner of a department store here. "My fourteen moths of married life was a living h---l," Mrs. Brandeis d- ciared. Brandeis met the beautiful twenty- three-year-old divorced wife of a New York exporter in the spring of 1922 and induced her to accompany him on a big game hunt in Alaska. They were married at eward. Alaska. later. After the Alaska trip, the wife testi- fied. the couple went to Africa. He took her walking in the Jungle one night. There was a terrible noise in the brush _ Professing to believe It was.made by a llon, Brandels fled. As he ran, natives, their bodies painted a ghastly white, with a phos- phorescent preparation, appeared and danced a grewsome war dance in the half light. The whole effect was so realistic that Citizens Mrs. Brandeis fell over In a fatal ac- cording to her testimony. When Mrs. Brandeis had regained her health the party started back to the United States. Mike Cotter, an African guide, who accompanied the Brandeis home, saved her life, she de- clerked, when her husband attempted to throw her through a porthole of their stateroom while In mid)ocean. Arriving In Omaha the pair staried housekeeping In the Brandeis "bunga- low," which is located on the roof of tle Brandeis downtown stores ere. One night about a week after their return, Brandeis, according to Mrs. Brandeis, entered her room, tore off her clothing, and beat her into uncon- sciousness with a Jewel-handled "bull" whip. After lisfenlng to the testimony, Judge L. B. D0y granted Mrs. Bran- dets her decree and restored her maiden name of Ryan. The first Mrs. Brandeis, Madellne Frank, daughter of a millionaire" San Franeiseo merchant, returned to the Pacific Coast With a cool ha]f.milliou.
