American Interest
In Cuban Affairs.
F SOMEONE should walk up to
you in the middle of a nice sunny
afternoon and say, "I'm not going to hit you,"
and then punch you in the nose, you would un-
<l0 Itedly be, a little angry. Probably you would
be n1ore angry if they had hit you without saying
anything at all.
President Roosevelt has done quite a simiar
thing to Cuba. He has sent three battleships
down to that country. to "protect the rights of
American citizens" and has at the same time an-
nounced that the United States did not intend to
intervene in the affairs of that country. If such a
thing is possible then, the United States is in the
very unusual situation of intervening without in-
tervening. The procedure is really quite remark-
able.
We feel that Roosevelt is quite correct in.send-
ing battleships to Cuba, but do not see any ad-
vantage in saying that we are not doingsome-
thing that obviously, we are doing. A spade, we
believe, is a spade-even if one calls it a rake or a
caterpillar-tractor.
If one doubts that landing battleships is inter-
vention, what would be the reaction in this coun-
try if three Cuban battleships should steam into
New York to protect the rights of Cubans living
hee? Would the fact that Cuba said she was not
gOiug to intervene in our affairs make any differ-
ence to us? We think not.
bdot Police
And The 'Vice Ring.**.*
- n HE POSSIBLE existence 'of a well-
L organized "syndicate" or "ring" is
tLe subject of an investigation being carried on in
fletroit. The theory exists, based upon the in-
formation already brought to light, that under-
world characters who operate houses of "ill fame"
have been negotiating with members of the De-
troit' Police department for so-called protection
It appears that the owners and operators of the
brothels have presented a united front ii their
alt4empts to violate the law by "wholesale" ar-
rangements with the police. So far it is not clear
whether the grand jury questioning will lead to
any specific charges against a member or mem-
bers of the law enforcing group.
What the investigation has accomplished te
dt~e however is to bring before the citizens the
f t'that the Detroit police are tolerating the con-
tGued existence of illegal operations. Whether
t= charge of bribery can be definitely placed
against any member of the police department is
the subject of the investigation, but the fact that
the police have been openly condoning the opera-
tion of such places has already been brought out.

News dispatches have contained the names and
the addresses of many persons who have been
arrested and rearrested for violating the law. In-
vestigations have disclosed that members of the
department, officials in the prosecutor s office,
and judges are acquainted with many of those
who have so flagrantly violated the laws which
exist for the purpose of doing away with what
has been openly admitted. In other words, the
police well know who the people are who run such
places, they know where they are located, and
many of the patrons who frequent them. Yet,
nothing has been done by the department during
this investigation which would tend to show that'
they are going to "clean up" the city.
The sole purpose of this recent activity seems,
toe be to decide whether or not anything can be,
definitely "pinned" against af: individual or a
group, for selling protection. Yet it appears that
what has resulted has been an actual indictment
against the entire department, the judges, and thef
officials who have been responsible for not en-:
forcing a law which is quite plain and obvious.

Constance Bennett's bed of roses blossoms out
in the first reel from behind the bars of a penal
institution for women in the state of Louisiana.
Just what the gum-chewing, hip-shaking Miss
Evans (Constance Bennett) is behind those bars
for the audience isn't told, but one is led to be-
lieve that it isn't for over-sleeping in church.
Released with another of her kind, only worse,
the flapperish Miss Evans .takes a boat for New
Orleans with only enough money to pay fare as
far as Good Hope. Before reaching the destination
of her ticket, however, Miss Evans leaves the
Mississippi River steamboat by the rail route, tak-
ing with her sixty dollars that formerly belonged
to a male passenger.
She is hauled from the river by the owner-
captain of a cotton barge who turns out to be
the handsome young he-man of the'scenario, in
the person of Joel McCrea. After pushing each
other overboard a few times, Miss Evans and
the captain sorta decide to like each other. Until
Miss .Evans deserts the boat at the New Orleans
landing, taking her newly-made friend's purse.
In the delta city, we see Miss Evans making a
racket out of a respectable and wealthy bachelor,
by compromising him in his own home. Shortly
thereafter she has managed to become established
in a de-luxe apartment, one of the kind with a
canopy bed and a balcony .over-looking the lights
of the city. Friend bachelor foots the bills. (This
by the way, is apparently where the picture gets
its name, from the rose-embroidered silk cover-
ings which adorn the canopied bed.)
But our heroine is unhappy. After returning
to the riverfront to pay back the money she has
"borrowed" from McCrea, she discovers that she
is in love. After the cotton carrier proposes mar-
riage she resolves to'leave her meal-ticket, but,
having' become rather accustomed to the affair,
the, bachelor is loath to let her' go.
So she leaves for an attic room and a job in a
department store, to prove to herself thai*she can
be respectable. The manner in which she succeeds
is remarkable, and eventually the hero returns to
say that he knows the whole story, all the rotton,
sordid past and that sort of thing, but he loves
her anyway and won't she please be his wife. She
does.
Constance Bennett is no better and no worse in
"Bed of Roses" than she usually is. But the ve-
hicle is not to be compared with "Our Betters"
and some of the other fine plays she has been
given. For that reason the picture is far from
remarkable. Joel McCrea can act also but he is
given too little to do this time.
Supporting bills at the Majestic include another
of those shorts featuring radio stars-this time
Little Jack Little. Also a two-reeler with Harry
Langdon, the first time we've seen him in a
coon's age. Not bad, as slapstick stuff goes.

SCREEN LIFE IN HLUYWOOD
By HUBBARD KEAVY
HOLLYWOOD-The movies still are looking for
individual faces, special talents, singular man-
nerisms, different personalities.
Because Hollywood, which can produce on short
notice anything' from a white rabbit with six
. babies to a reproduction of China's great wall,
is at a. loss for suitable human talent, despite the
presence of 20,000 actors and actresses. *
Yet the studios frequently conduct searches,
hold contests, raid Broadway, vaudeville and the
circuses, operate dramatic schools to discover
people to fill specified roles.
A. recent "panther woman" contest, for in-
stance, brought out 60,000 candidates and re-
ulted in five girls coming to Hollywood. If one
of the five becomes a prominent featured player,
the studio will feel sufficiently rewarded.
Almost every person under contract or free
lancing is a specific type. There are western stars,
drawing room stars, he-man heroes, villians,
women who fall into definite categories, ingenues
and juveniles of every size, shape, talent and de-
scription. Yet, says Fred Datig, casting director,
there are many roles which no one can fill.
Coals To Newcastle
The talent shortage, apparently, is not con-
fined alone to Hollywood.
To Alaska went a picture company a few
months ago and, because. it. feared the native gals
might not look like Eskimos, a leading lady who
does look like one-according to the movie con-
ception-was hired for the trip. She was Ying
Wong, Chinese Anna Mae Wong's sister. and
former maid. She's the love interest in the forth-

coming "Eskimo."
A Washington
BYST L.ANDER
By KIRKE SIMPSON,
Sponsor For Cuba
HOW the Cuban crisis would result was not clear
as this was written. Yet there are elements
about any political upheaval in the island re-
public particularly difficult for the Washington
government to handle, as sponsor and virtual
guarantor before the world of Cuba's. responsi-
bilities as well as rights as a member of the
family of nations.
American good faith for the protection. of all
foreign nationals and their rights in Cuba went
with cession of the island by Spain after, the
Spanish-American war. The Platt amendment,
whatever its wording, is embedded in Cuban law
and in the treaty with the United States that
set Cuba free in recognition of the right of the
world to look ultimately to Washington for pro-
tection of their nationals in Cuba, whatever this
country might do about erecting a new nation of
Cuba.

orders in Cuba had its own specal and disturb-
ing& significance. That President Roosevelt and
Secretary Hull feared some such possibility and
moved to prevent it in sending Welles to Cuba is
quite clear. They had hoped, through this sea-
soned specialist in Latin-American diplomacy, to
cut at the economic roots of Cuban political tur-
moil by aiding Cuba through new trade agree-
ments.
WASEINGTON-It is a striking fact that the
only two Presidents in decades to be elected
on platforms containing a traditional party re-
pudiation of imperialistic designs or policy to-
ward Latin-America should have encountered
crises fraught with armed intervention possibili-
ties almost as they took office.
Woodrow Wilson had a Mexican revolution
tangle on his hands when he took over the pres-
idency in 1913. Franklin Roevelt's most care-
full calculated diplomatic appointment that of
Sumner Welles as ambassador to Cuba, was an
effort to avert a situation that might lead to
American intervention there.
DESPITE his profound disinclination to resort
to force, Wilson was to send troops into Haiti,.
Nicaragua, Mexico and ultimately into European'
war. Sharing Mr. Wilson's view and voicing at
his inauguration a policy> of "good neighborliness"
designed especially to. reassure Latin-America as
to his aims and purposes, President Roosevelt's
first real test in an external emergency on this
side of the world confronted him with a grave
danger that he might have to order warships and
marines southward.
Editorial Comment
KEEPING PROMISES
-AN INNOVATION
American tradition dictates that we shall be
"leery" of promises made by politicians in the
heat of a campaign. The classic example is the
farmer who, to his sorrow, has been on the re-
ceiving end of many such extravagant bits of
bait which turned with surprising ease into mere
thin air after his candidate had assumed office.
But. supporters of both major political parties
in the United States will admit, some of them a
bit grudgingly, that Franklin D. Roosevelt has
shown himself so far not to be that sort of poli-
tician. His party made promises to the farmers.
He is doing his best to carry them out.
Roosevelt is in office today, largely because of
his promises to help America return to prosperous
times, and the results of his unflagging efforts in
that direction are already apparent.
But he has been, until now, comparatively silent
on a question of vital importance to the Amer-
ican people. Prohibition.
Recently he made public a telegram which left
no doubt that he was going to carry out this part
of his platform too. In a wire to Leon McCord,
the Democratic national committeeman from Ala-
bama, where a repeal election was soon to be held,
he said:
"I think I have made it abundantly clear that
the platform of the Democratic party adopted last
year should be carried out insofar as it lies in
our power. The special session of the Congress
has al-eady translated into law a great majority
of the pledges made.
"One of the pledges of the platform read as
follows: 'We advocate the repeal of the Eighteenth
Amendment. To effect such repeal we demand
that the Congress immediately propose a con-
stitutional amendment to truly representative con-
ventions in the states called to act solely on that
proposal.'
"The Congress has acted on this and many of
the states are now engaged in molding elections
for the conventions proposed.
"Finally, I have made it clear ever since my
nomination a year ago that I subscribe to the
Democratic platform100 per cent."
Whether or not we agree with the Chief Execu-
tive's stand on this and other matters, we must
admit that his code is to live up to promises-
a rather novel but altogether pleasing principle
in American politics. -The Daily Illini.
SOUTH AMERICA TESTS
THE LEAGUE OF NATIONS

Another test of the effectiveness of the League
of Nations may be offered by the current warfare
between Bolivia and Paraguay, if present indica-
tions ,mean anything.
The old territorial dispute between the two
Latin-American republics was reopened by Bo-
livia recently, when a terrific offensive was begun
against the Paraguayan troops in the Nawana and
Gondra districts.
In two days of figlhting it was reported, at
least 2,000 ofi the Paraguayan soldiers were killed,
and that many wounded. On the fortified island of
Nawana 180 out of 200 men stationed there were
killed..
All of. which is in violation of an agreement
made through the agency of the league. When
war broke out a year ago over the boundary dis-
pute of a hundred years standing, negotiations
were begun at Geneva- to settle the question
through peaceful means.
The two nations were supposedly observing an
armistice, pending the outcome of the league's
negotiations. But Bolivian military authorities re-
fused to recognize the armistice.
Paraguay, on the -other hand, is at present will-
ing- to submit the question to the League of Na-
tions for settlement. Following recent attacks,
Paraguayan officials cabled instructidns to the na-
tion's delegate at Geneva to protest to the league.
Authorities at Geneva are attempting to affect
a settlement of the Chaco border dispute through
the work of a commission, consisting of repre-
sentatives from Great Britain, France, Italy,
Spain, and Mexico, which is expected to make an
investigation on the scene of the trouble.
Whether the league will be successful in set-
tling a quarrel which 100 years of bickering and
fighting has only served to intensify remains to
be seen.

ed on President Carlos Manuel de
Cespedes today and expected to visit
other officials.
It was empl'iasized at the State
Department that the warships were
dispatched only after the new gov-
.rnment headed by Dr. De Cespedes
had approved the action and that
the purpose was to lend a steadying
effect to the new regime.
The action was intended to help
prevent the rejoicing over the
change in government from devel-
oping into conditions throughout the
island which -might prevent speedy
reorganization under the new ad-
ministration.
MACHADO -NEEDSCLOTHES
NASSAU, Aug. 14.4==Efforts,
largely futile, to communicate Eby
telephone with friends and assci-
ates in Cuba and a shopping tour
to replace clothing in which' he fled
Saturday occupied Gerardo Macad,
deposed . Cuban president, and his
companions in exile today.
A wireless was sent by Machado
to Key West for delivery to Mrs.
Machado and members of their im-
mediate family, who arrived by pri-
vate yacht.
Machado's future plans, an asso-
ciate said, depend on the answer he
receives from Mrs. Machado and on
advi'ce from friends in the United
Staes and Europe.
Inquiries were made on his be-
half concerning transportation fa-
cilities to ermuda and European
countries, the next sailing of which
is Aug. 28.
CUBANS MOB .CAMERA MEN
NEW YORK, Aug. 13-(IP)-A thrill-
ing and nearly tragic story of adven-
ture and adversity 'was pieced togeth-
er-today from cabled bits of Havana
news, the story of the heart-break-
ing battle of Associated Press staff
photographers to fill an "assignment"
against odds of revolution, bloodshed,
and rioting.
As the last of a relay of planes
dropped to Newark Airport at noon
with a realistic pictorial account of
the Cuban revolt it marked the suc-
cessful conclusion of another phase
of another "newspaper story" that
cost many thousands of dollars and
almost 'cost the lives of two Associated
'Press camera men.
Looses Precious Plates '
Seymour Ress, Associated Press
photographer, lost his camera and
precious plates Saturday afternoon at
the hands of an hysterical mob which
descended upon the Pan-American
Airways dock to prevent the escape
of Col. Orestes Ferrara, former secre-
tary of state.
As the pilot took off in a hail of
bullets, with the secretary and his
wife safely aboard, the infuriated
snob bore down on Ress and destroyed
his camera and plates - which were
to have gone to Miami aboard the
plane.
Atnthe point of pistols and rifles,
they forced him into a machine and
after handling him roughly, threw
him out in the outskirts of Havana.
Keeps Duplicates
Another Associated Press camera
man, Jose Garcia, who last week was
dragged to safety as he was photo-
graphing the massacre of celebrating
Cubans by soldiers before the presi-

dential palace, dug out from vaults
duplicate "shots" of the rioting of
the weekend.
These pictures, taken almost at the
same time and places as those of
Ress, were prepared for delivery.
Other pictures, obtained from Ha-
vana newspaper members of the
Associated Press, were included.
Despite the fact news reel camera-
men and other photographers were
keeping films locked in vaults for safe
keeping during. the rioting, the Ha-
vana "AP" staff at once made prepa-
rations to fly their second batch of
pictures to Miami for distribution
over the United States.
State Department Interferes
But it was not until the state de-
partment at Washington had inter-
vened, that government "sanction"
was obtained to permit a plane to
leave the island. And then-there
were no planes. President Gerardo
M~achado had taken the last one in
his escape.
Working frantically, a ship was
chartered from Miami by the Asso-
ciated Press. Delayed by weather and
head winds; it was not until late
Sunday that the plane returned to
Miami, where the pictures were
transferred to two waiting planes.
Fighting bad weather northward,
one plane reached Atlanta, Ga., where
a crew of Associated Press men were
waiting to develop and distribute the
pictures to member papers. The oth-
er was forced to stay at Camden,
S.C., by bad flying conditions after
Pilot W. J. Smith had been turned
back once.

Go-vld Cup Boat,
DolphineVII
Baal*9 --1
BadlyvDamaged
Horace Dodge's Gold Cup boat,
Delphine VIII, was damaged serious-
ly Monday afternoon when it struck
an obstruction off the Naval Armory
in a test run in the Detroit River.
Witnesses said that the speed boat
was traveling at high speed when
it seemed to strike a plank or other
floating object while on a run down
the River. The front of the boat
suddenly raised up and the back
went down.
The crew shut off the motors at
once, and as the speed of the boat
diminished it resumed an even keel.
A large hole was visible in its hull
just below the motor as the boat's
nose was thrust into the air how-
ever. It began to sink rapidly.
The crew managed to bring it to
shore before it sank and it was
dragged to the Detroit side of the
river.
The identity of the members of
the crew at the time of the crash
was not revealed but it was assum-
ed that Dodge himself was driving it
for several days on the River, and
Sunday attained a speed of 75 miles
an hour with it.
The Delphine VIII is Dodge's fav-
orite boat, and he counted upon it
strongly to make a successful de-
fense of the Gold Cup. He has an-
other boat ready for the race, the
Delphine VI. The boat, while not
as fast as the Delphine VIII, Sun-
day was pronounced by its owner as
Sthe second fastest boat entered in
the Gold Cup competition.
