Chamberlain Letter
Considered Significant
LONDON, July 31.-(P)-A person-
al letter from Prime Minister Neville
Chamberlain to Premier Benito Mus-
solini reached Rome today and per-I
sons-close to the government consid-
ered it a significant effort to improve
Anglo-Italian relations.
They said it indicated the Prime
Minister had taken over direction of
the Empire's troubled relations with
Italy from Foreign Secretary An-
thony Eden, whose contactsrwith Il
Duce and Italian leaders have not
been cordial since the crisis over
Ethiopia two years ago.
The Italians considered Eden large-
ly responsible for the League's invo-
cation of sanctions in the effort to
halt. the conquest of Ethiopia.
The letter arrived at the Italian
foreign office today and was forward-
ed at once to Rimini, where Il Duce
was vacationing. Though British gov-
ernment sources declined to state
flatly that the letter was sent, it ad-
mitted at 10 Downing Street-Cham-

DOORN, Holland, Aug. 1.-P)-
Twenty-three years ago today Ger-
many declared war on Russia and
Wilhelm II signed the general mobili-
zation. order.
The next day German troops in-
vaded France.
Today the man who was accused of
plunging the world into battle sits on
a knoll of his 50-acre estate here,
absorbed in roses.
Once attended by generals and
ministers, today he is accompanied by
a soft-eyed dachshund.I
Mustache Bristles No More
The bristling mustache to which
he gave his name is gray. It bristles
no more but its tips still point sky-
ward. A gray beard covers his once-
arrogant chin. His stern face has
softened, grown more angular.
The world was at his throat when
the abdicated monarch fled to Hol-
land 19 years ago. He found shelter
with friends and Holland protected
him. In 1920 he bought his 50-acre
domain in Doorn.
Seventeen years have drowned the
hatred. Now, at 78, the ex-Kaiser
seems a handsome gentleman of the;
old school. His personal sorrows-
the suicide of his youngest son, Prince
Joachim, soon after the war, the
death of the former kaiserin in 1921
-have been forgotten.
The ex-Kaiser has been alone part
of this summer. His consort, the
business-like Kaiserin H e r m i n e,
whom he married in 1922, went toI
supervise her properties in Germany.
None of the children of her former
mariage were there when an Asso-
ciated Press correspondent visited
Doorn recently.
At one side of the ex-Kaiser's

rosarium is a slight eminence. Al-
though the garden is open to those
of the public who get tickets of
admission from the stern-visaged
Dutch gendarme at the guardhouse,
the knoll is chained off and marked
Gifts From Old Friends
The gorgeous colors spread beforel
this haven of peace come from flow-
ers that are gifts from persons and
organizations dear to the old man's
heart. Little metal plates at each
bush are the reminders.
One reads "The Germans of Cin-
cinnati"; another "The German No-
bility League"; many from various
parts of Germany are "marked "The
Kaiser-True Youth."
Intimate With Dutch
His dark blue Mercedes car takes
him to tea parties at the homes of
the Dutch nobility round about and
there are occasional tea parties at
Doorn House. He maintains a cor-
dial, if not intimate friendship with,
the Dutch royal family.
As the former monarch sits among
his roses the Westminster chimes
sound six. Time to dress for dinner.
The silver-haired gentleman rises
from the white seat. With the dachs-
hund at his heels, and nodding to
gardeners as he passes he disappears

Mrs. Austin Forkner reported that a
30-inch wall-eyed pike, flipping its
fins near the shore of Lake Mendota,
chased her through the water after
she hit it with an oar. She said she
caught it with a net.

CHICAGO, July 31. - (AP) - Two
horses won the $45,000 Arlington Fu-
turity today.
Running the first dead heat in Fu-
turity history, Tiger, entry of Mrs.
Ethel V. Mars of Chicago, and Ted-
dy's Comet, carrying the colors of
Emerson V. Woodward, Houston, Tex.,
raced six furlongs to a deadlock in
the richest juvenile stake of the
year, climaxing the highly successful
30 day Arlington Park meeting.
Dellor, the hardest working three
year old on the turf, galloped to a
surprise victory in the $20,000 Arling-
ton Handicap, secondary stake on the
rich closing day program, witnessed
by 35,000 cheering spectators.
Racing as a team most of the jour-
ney, Tiger and Teddy's Comet flashed
across the finish line so close that
the placing judges, even after exam-
ining the photograph under a mag-
nifying glass, could detect no mar-
gin. The Texas owned Teddy's Comet,
was up in the final stride to catch
the entry of Mrs. Mars Tiger's run-
ning mate, C-Note was third. Her
horses were prohibitive favorites at
1 to 2.
