Growin'g Disaffeetion
Causes Surrender

Of Tribesmen
To French

By .Abd-El Ririnm

(By Associated Press)
FEZ, Morocco, May 27.-This was
an historic day in France's colonial
history, for the rebellious Moroccan
chieftain Abd-el-Krim, walked meek-
Iy into the French lines on his way to
Paza, where it is expected he will ar-
rive tomorrow for the formal cere-
mony of submission to Jules Steeg,
the French resident general.
Yesterday the Rffian chief announ-
ed his surrended to the French and to-
day, under escort of two French of-
ficers and six men, he was brought
to Izemarquene, north of Targist.
Here he was presented to the com-
manding officers of the Moroccan di-
Jumping over an extinguished
bivouac fire, Krim advanced toward
General Ibos and Colonel Corap,
designated to receive his surrender.
Reserving the characteristic calmness
of a Moslem fatalist with his eyes
taking in every detail of the sur-
roundings, but without flinching, Krim
engaged in conversation with the
French officers about the conditions
under which his suite and the con-
voys should proceed. It was decided
they would proceed along the mili-
tary road toward Paza where he would
arrive tomorrow.
Abd-el-Krim's coming to surrender
is summed up briefly in French quar-
ters as follows:
After learning that he was trapped
in his lair and sensing the growing
resentment of the tribesmen about
him, Krim sent a letter by Dr. Terent,
of the French military mission, to M.
Steeg on May 25 saying he would give
up to the French and let them decide
his fate, but asking pardon for him-
self and his family and protection of
his worldly goods. M. Steeg's reply
was that the prisoners of all nationali-
ties held by Krim must first be lib-
Sensing that that would be the,
French resident gneral's xeply,
Krim in the meantime sent a letter to
M. Steeg announcing that he had ord-
ered all the tribes remaining faithful
to him to deliver their French pris-
oners with a view to his turning them
over to the French.

Talks In House Center On Questiont
Of Diverting Water From 1
Great LakesE
(By Associated ,Press)
WASHINGTON, May 27.-House de-
bate on the $36,000,000 rivers and har-
bors authorization bill finally gotd
under way today with discussion cen-
tering mainly on the question of di-
verting water from the Great Lakes.
Except for the introductory remarks
of chairman Dempsey, of the rivers1
and harbors committee summarizing
the bill, all the debate was devoted to7
some aspect of the diversion contro-
versy, linked with the $1,350,000 pro-
ject of navigation improvements onl
the Illinois river between Utica and
Granton, Illinois.
An agreement was reached to end
general discussion on the measureoby1
Saturday before the House adjourns
for the week end and Memorial day.
A final vote on it is expected next
week after it has ben read for amend-
After urging passage of 'the bill as
the most useful and beneficial before
Congress, Mr. Dempsey, by reference
to the Illinois project, precipitated
anew the controversy over diversion.
Representative Chalmers, Republi-
can, Ohio, assailing the Chicago sani-
tary district as the "monster organi-
zation" which directs the activities of
tthe proponents of water diversion
said: "Don't let them chloroform you.
Let the Great Lakes alone and we will
amortize all rivers and harbors im-
provements in a few years. Take
away our water by diversion and you
will lower the level so as to cripple
our Great Lakes commerce and render
useless by ileaving them high and

Mr. Chalmers charged the Chicago
Tribune with "openly advocating" that
proponents of the Illinois plan "come
to an agreement" with New York and
other state delegations to obtain
