Bailey's Works Exhibited Lastj
Year to Royalty in Spain;
Honored by Alfonso.
An Exhibition consisting of 35
water color paintings of Italian
scenes, the work of Vernon Howe,
Bailey, is now on display in the
ground floor galleries of the archi-I
tectural building. The exhibit, giv-
en under the auspices of the Ann+
Arbor Art association, may be view-
ed daily from 9 to 5, except Sun-
days, through the month.
Show Last Year.
Art-lovers will recall that, paint-
ings by Bailey were exhibited at
the architectural school last year.
A collection of lithographs of New
York skyscrapers were shown in
the early spring, while during the
latter part of May and June, a
number of Bailey's water colors of
Spanish scenes were on display.
Bailey has done considerable
painting since 1921, having worked
in Italy, Spain, France, 'Austria,
and Hungary. He returned to this'
country last year after two years'
spent sketching and painting in
Spain and Italy. While in those!
countries, Bailey did most of his
artistic work in small, compara-
tively unknown towns. Most of the
water colors in the present exhi-;
bition portray street scenes and
water scenes in these small Italian
boats lying at rest along the
towns. Many of them are of sail-
wharves or in action on the calm
blue Mediterranean.'
Known Abroad.
An exhibition of Vernon Howe
Bailey's works, held in London, was'
officially opened by the Duchess of
Rutland. Another exhibition by
Bailey, consisting of water colors,
lithographs, and drawings, was
held in Madrid under the %auspices
of the Society of Friends of Art.
This showing was attended by'
King Alfonso XIII, who issued to
Bailey a royal decree of appreci-f
ation of his work. The King also!
appointed him to a corresponding
membership of the Royal Academy
of Fine Arts of San Fernando, in!

If another war comes, navies will
make use of poisonous gas both, inj

will be projected into enemy ships
by means of torpedoes or aerial
bombs, he says. Once the gas gets
into the ventilation system of a
ship, it will permeate all the lower
quarters and asphyxiate every per-
son aboard.
How a single ship might wipe outj
all human inhabitants of a hun-f
dred square miles of enemy terri-J
tory was also explained. The depth-
dealing ship would approach asI
close as possibleto a port of the en-
emy. Then huge aerial projectiles3
would be released, containing spe-I
cially p.repared serums of count-
less numbers of pneumonia germs.'
As the germ-bearing missiles burst,
the germs would be wide-spread
over the country and an epidemic
of pneumonia would result. Medi-
cal facilities would be inadequate to
cope with the thousands .of cases
of the disease, and the.inhabitants
would die off with all the suffering
that was attendant medieval plag-
ues, when whole nations were some--
times wiped out.
Poisonous gases used during the,
World War were just at the .begin-
ning of their development at the
time the Armistice was signed, Mr.
Soule adds. The most poisonous
gas known to the world today, Lew-
isite, was discovered just at the
end of the War. Chemists, work-


Potentialities of gas-combat by
navies should be considered if the
disarmament conference is to pro-
duce noteworthy results, Mr. Soule
"But .after all, what good are
-pacts?" he asks. "Before the World
War, nations had signed agree-
ments not to use gases, but they
all broke their treaties. Whatever
pacts are made at the present con-
ference will be broken if another
great war should come. Whatever'
agreements are signed regarding
chemical warfare, governments will
continue to subsidize research work
in the field of poisonous gases.
"The'value of the Conference lies
in the attendant education of the
people, in the creation of a pub-
11c opinion opposed to war," Mr.
Soule concluded.
