According to- informatioa ' at tha
American provost marshal's oi&ca thia
action waa not due to the clamoring of
French rivaja but to the findings of a

when they attempted to 'atop Americas

accompaniment ef Jan music tinkling

insare that there will be ne interference
by the army authorities with sailors who
want to enter." '.".'.
"I am going to appeal to tha highest
America authorities" Kiley aaid. "I
will demand the reason why my place ia
called out of bounds to the army if the
navy considers it respectable enough for
aaval officer and sailor to frequent. I
