day to confer with Eva Le Oallienne i about the foundation of a national I academy of dramatic art. The! legitimate stage needs a national, j theater subsidized by the Federal Government as a foundation upon j which the spoken drama may be built to its former magnitude, the ! actress asserted, after her arrival here last night on a hurried busi-ness trip from California. "It is my idea that a committee of actors and actresses be formed I I to draw up plans in detail," Miss I Fickford explained. "I would sug-| gest Walter Huston. Walter Hamp-
1 den. George Arliss, Katharine Cornell. May Robson, Eva Le Gal­lienne and myself." Miss Pickford then suggested the same actors and actresses to be­ come directors of the academy. After talking with Miss Le Gal-lenne, she said, they will discuss the stage situation with officials in Washington. The immediate cause of her trip to New York, however. Miss Pick- ford said, was to clear up a few business details in connection with a picture she Is about to produce The title is "The Flame Within" and the author and director is Ed­
mund Goulding. Besides taking steps to found a national academy and doing a bit of business, the actress also will take time out to consider offers from two firms that may feature her in a series of radio sketches, and to weigh the possibilities of a play by an anonymous playwright. Miss Pickford said she was not "saying anything about" her af­
fairs with her husband, Douglas Fairbanks For the duration of her proposed three-day visit she is stopping at the Sherry-Netherlands. Sour Milk His Drink. NORTH BERWICK, Eng -Sour ' milk gets part of the credit for the ' longevity of John Arundel of North Berwick, who with his Nottingham brother, Robert, claims the record j of being the oldest twin in Eng-1 land.

CLEW TO NELSON PROVES A FAKE Atlantic City Man Seized for Giving Tip/ ATLANTIC CITY, Sept 5 (A. P).-Federal agents and police­ men, who raided a local inn today in search of "Baby Face" Nelson, a Dillinger mobster, arrested an al­ leged telephone "tipster" a few hours later. Earl W. Leeds, thirty-eight years old. a plastering contractor, was i resembling Nelson was in the ear. charged with malicious mischitf am a complaint signed by Samuel Hinden. proprietor of the Inn. Hinden testified in a spacial ses­
sion of the police court that Leeds was ejected from the inn yesterday after he had run up a bill for drinks. Leeds threatened revenge, Hinden told Acting Recorder Jo­
seph Farreli. The defendant pleaded not guilty and declined to take the stand. Later he told reporters that he had passed the "tip" onto the wife of a detective captain after he became suspicious of an automobile which frequented the inn Leeds said the car bore license plates from New York, New Jersey and other Statea at various times, and that i man WHAT A CHISELER...this man CELLINI I Que$tion$ and Anawera.

terious to the system if consumed in moderate quantities. While I re­

ner may not be actually deleterious, provided, of course, that the alco­
hol used is of the finest quality ob­
tainable, the problem is to deter-1 ttine that quality. This is a matter | which it is most difficult for the layman to decide, and inasmuch as • great quantity of inferior alcohol Is now being offered for sale it seems obvious that the home-made product constitutes probably a dan­ ger and most certainly a waste of time, particularly in view of the lew prices of some of the very good gin; now on the market. On the other hand, it la impos­
sible by a mere mixing of ingredi­
ents to do away with all of the im­ purities which are so effectively re- moved by subsequent distillations. NO POISON FOUND IN BOYS' DEATHS Bat Inquiry Is Continued on . School Fataities. Schwartz and Dr. Harry C. Storrs. superintendent of the Wassaic State School for the Feeble-Minded said today that the State Health; Department's report closed the in- j vestigation into the death of the thrc-e boys. "The tests have shown that the bays dind of natural causes and this office has no further interest in the case," said the District At­ torney "I believe that the fact that the three boys all died in the same ward and withth .a short time of one another was merely a ! coincidence. ( "The results of the tests shew that we have no reason to think that the death? were from other than natural causes." Dr Storrs said "The tests bear out our theorv that the deaths were natural. We could find nothing to indicate that they were from anything else."
