Tells Mitchell Court Martial That
Paper Falsely Represented
Shenandoah iMisap
(By Associated Press)
WASHINGTON, Nov. 12.-Margaret
Ross Lansdowne testified today be-
fore the Mitchell court martial that
Capt. Paul Foley, judge advocate of
the Shenandoah court of inquiry, has
submitted to her a prepared state-
ment which she was to adopt as her
testimony before the navy court in-
quiring into the disaster which cost
her husband Com. Zachary Lans-
downe his life.
She was one of three witnesses
called to support charges made by
Col. William Mitchell which led to his
trial before the military tribunal on
specifications citing conduct to the
prejudice of good order and military
discipline. The Foley incident came
as a surprise, and was intended to
substantiate Colonel Mitchell's dec-
laration that a navy officer endeavored
to have Mrs. Lansdowne give the na-
Val court "false testimony and retract
her former statement before that tri-
Mrs. Lansdowne, however, was not
interrogated directly as to the motive
Captain Foley had in mind when he
sent her the statement nor did she
testify that it constituted, on his part,
an attempt to have h-er give false tes-
timony. She did tell the court that
the statement falsely represented the
Shenandoah disaster and was an "in-
sult"' to her husbands memories.
Under cross examination by the
court, the witness reluctantly admit-
ted that she received Captain Foley's
statement from Mrs. George W. Steele,
wife of the commandant of the Lake-
hurst air station, an intimate friend.
She testified that it bore no signature,
not even a mark, to show that it came
from the Navy department, and that
she had destroyed the paper.
WASHINGTON, Nov. 12.-American
loans sought by Brazilian authorities
to support coffee price valorization
has been refused by New York bank-
ers at the insistence of the adminis-
tration it appeared today in the pub-
lication of a statement by Secretary
Amounts of loans sought and the
identity of the banking houses and
borrowers concerned were not men-
tIoned by Mr. Hoover, but the gov-
ernment's interest was revealed as
that of preventing any use of Amer-
ican money to increaseuthe price of
coffee to American consumers above
a point which the government con-~
siders fair.
"The administration" said Mr.
Hoover's statement "does not believe
New York banking houses wish to
provide loans which might be diverted
to support the coffee speculation
which has been in progress for the
last year in the hands f the coffee
combination , in Sao Paulo, Brazil.
Such support would simply bolster up
the extravagant prices to the Ameri-

can consumer.
Two exhibitions of the slides de-f
picting the 192 passion play of Ober
Ammergau will be given by the Con-
gregational church Sunday. The first
showing is to be for children; and
will be made at 4 o'clock. The sec-
ond will be for adults at 8 o'clock.
These slides are announced as the
only official pictures of the life of
Christ as dramatised by the municip-
jlity of the Ober Ammergau.
Mr. C. J. Arms, the Canadian lec-
turer, will explain the story as it is,
unfolded on the screen.
